No offence, but you need to get down from your high horse mate. This wiki was abandoned by the original crew, the time of which I was here, and you weren't. Also, you may have authority, but your enforcing it in the wrong way. You're still just another user, and you being a beaurocrat doesn't mean you can't be wrong, and you are not above anybody. One such example is your blatant removal of the trivia from the Tommy Vercetti article without good reason (i'm assuming this is what you're referring to, as such I undid it). Provide a (good) reason. [[User:NT92|NT92]] 07:27, September 12, 2011 (UTC)

I hate switching between two or more userpages to follow a conversation.
If you leave a message on my talk page, I will respond here.
If I leave you a message on your talk page, please respond there.
Remember to post in the conversation, not at the bottom of the page, and please indent your posts properly.
Sergeant I am a Bureaucrat on this wiki.

Userbox font-family

How to change the font on userboxes from arial to times new roman? thank you. Lyrixn 08:59, August 13, 2011 (UTC)

[font face="Times New Roman"]Text you want to change[/font], replacing the [ ] with < >.
Like so. McJeff (talk this way)/(stalk this way) 12:16, August 13, 2011 (UTC)

Images

I have restored some of the images I uploaded and attached licenses. Mind if I do the same for other useful, but unlicensed, images from other users? 涼宮ハルヒ(Suzumiya Haruhi) 18:35, August 13, 2011 (UTC)

Go right ahead. McJeff (talk this way)/(stalk this way) 12:39, August 14, 2011 (UTC)


Blocking the Vandals

Hi McJeff, it's Ilan xd, can you block User:Moe100.3, he vandaled in many characters pages and wrote wrong information about their age and status. Ilan xd 16:11, August 17, 2011 (UTC)

Trivia

Hey McJeff why are you deleting all the trivia? Ilan xd 15:15, August 18, 2011 (UTC)

Because it's the rules.
Besides, about half of the trivia that people post should go in the actual articles not just stuck on a trivia list at the bottom of the page, and the other half of the trivia is useless crap about as trivial as the sky being blue.
Trivia lists are just ugly sloppy useless natter magnets. McJeff (talk this way)/(stalk this way) 15:18, August 18, 2011 (UTC)
So put that information in the actual article? Ilan xd 15:24, August 18, 2011 (UTC)
Yes. McJeff (talk this way)/(stalk this way) 15:24, August 18, 2011 (UTC)
What if the trivia has been changed to Notes? will it be appropriate then? because some trivial facts are useless indeed like it says in the policy you mentionedUchiha.Sasuke.B 23:04, August 21, 2011 (UTC)

User rights

Hi Jeff, I accidentally removed my Bureaucrat rights, I removed the admin rights to see if it would say Bureaucrat next to my name in the new profile design, could you please give me them back, thanks :). Tom Talk 18:27, August 18, 2011 (UTC)

Doesn't matter Merrystar has sorted it. Tom Talk 19:36, August 18, 2011 (UTC)

Gregallz5

The guy has been harassing me for a few days. Should I block him? 涼宮ハルヒ(Suzumiya Haruhi) 05:12, August 19, 2011 (UTC)

Me harassing? I was telling 'em some truths it's not my fault that they wanna play the "H Card" just 'cause they wanna be little me 'bout stuff I knew, they started it, block 'em if it's gotta be someone getting blocked init? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Gregallz5 (talkcontribs)
I wouldn't say Greg is harassing you, Haruhi, so much as he's very poorly arguing his case by means of the "You're a foreigner and I'm not" fallacy. Unfortunately, I'm not qualified to know which one of you is right since I'm an American and not familiar with the US scene. Haruhi I suggest you just ignore him for the time being, I've warned him about civility. As for the content dispute Dan hasn't been active on the Wiki for a while, but I still talk to him on AIM so I'll ask him to weigh in if he gets a chance. McJeff (talk this way)/(stalk this way) 12:36, August 19, 2011 (UTC)

Patrollers

Hi Jeff, what do you think about making some of the users patrollers and giving them Rollback rights? We currently don't have any and I think we could do with some. Tom Talk 13:10, August 19, 2011 (UTC)

Sounds alright to me, there's quite a few users who I think would make good patrollers. McJeff (talk this way)/(stalk this way) 18:50, August 19, 2011 (UTC)
Shall I put something on the noticeboard or shall we just pick the users we think would make good patrollers? Tom Talk 21:45, August 19, 2011 (UTC)
I'm alright with whichever way you'd rather do it. McJeff (talk this way)/(stalk this way) 21:52, August 19, 2011 (UTC)

Rangeblock

Will that block prevent him from creating and using other accounts? Tom Talk 16:53, August 24, 2011 (UTC)

It usually helps a lot, although not completely. People determined to be serial vandals are usually obsessive enough that even if you range block them they'll keep trying to get around it, but it makes it much harder for them. Over on Bully Wiki Dan and I have a chronically determined vandal we call the "Girl Lover Vandal" (because he only edits the articles about the girls) that was what made me decide to learn how to rangeblock in the first place. McJeff (talk this way)/(stalk this way) 16:58, August 24, 2011 (UTC)
I hope he gets taken care of FOR GOOD! Everytime I look at him, I just get sick to my stomach. -Bunny J. Dying to talk to me? 17:01, August 24, 2011 (UTC)
Yeah I totally know how you feel. Depends on the vandal, some actually amuse me (I get a real laugh whenever they accuse me of being gay), but some just bore me and some are real irritating.
Hattip, though - don't ever let a vandal see that they're making you angry. That's why they're vandalizing in the first place. McJeff (talk this way)/(stalk this way) 17:14, August 24, 2011 (UTC)
Why would someone call people gay? That's not even clever. Yeah, you're right, I shouldn't let them see that I'm angry. But, I'm just getting so damn sick of it. -Bunny J. Dying to talk to me? 17:21, August 24, 2011 (UTC)
Hey McJeff. Why Sulfur blocked Gangbanger. -- Ilan xd 19:41, August 24, 2011 (UTC)
Because I asked for a checkuser to find out who was behind the Ku Klux Clan vandal accounts. Sulfur ran it and it was Gangbanger.
As for the gay thing, when I was in middle school I thought calling things that I didn't like 'gay' was the height of comedy... maybe it's an age/maturity thing. McJeff (talk this way)/(stalk this way) 21:05, August 24, 2011 (UTC)
What a twist! Makes sense, though. He does write like the KKK user. He must have set-up that fight with Ku Klux Klan to make us think it wasn't him. I'm getting total Scooby-Doo moment right now. :) -Bunny J. Dying to talk to me? 21:13, August 24, 2011 (UTC)

Mike

The reason he knows that is because of the new wiki profile set-up. You can add your real name and it adds a section that says "aka [Name filled in]" Example; "aka John." Take a look at the profile, you'll see it too. -Bunny J. Dying to talk to me? 02:28, August 27, 2011 (UTC)

I can't see any of that because I edit from the Monobook skin not New Wikia Look, but thanks for the info. McJeff (talk this way)/(stalk this way) 03:23, August 27, 2011 (UTC)
M'kay. -Bunny J. Dying to talk to me? 03:24, August 27, 2011 (UTC)

"Mike"

I don't angry at you Jeff, I just didn't knew that he is that KKK user, things are realy crazy in this wiki, last days.

I'm not that KKK, just think: I am a Jewish and an Israeli, how can I be this man. He wrote on his wiki skin, "aka Mike" -- Ilan xd 12:50, August 27, 2011 (UTC)

Bulgarin

I've sent a request to Rockstar and I should have confirmation of Bulgarin's forename in the next few days. Tom Talk 16:11, August 27, 2011 (UTC)


D.I.V.O.R.C.E.

I was watching (had it on in the background to be honest) Eggheads on BBC2 and one of the question was about the song "D.I.V.O.R.C.E." by Billy Connelley, I was wondering would the mission D.I.V.O.R.C.E. had got it's name from that song as it was released round about the time Vice City Stories was set?MariaJaydHickment 18:32, August 31, 2011 (UTC)

Reply

Firstly, me and Bunny can have conversations however we want, don't try and put them on one page because neither of us want that, me, along with most users, don't talk on talk pages the way you do, we like to get the pop up so we know we have a new message.

If you write shit about the other Staff on your userpage I'm going to remove it, just like you'd do to any other user. And since you made your talk page a redirect to your userpage, I couldn't contact you, I don't like to talk about GTA Wiki problems on other wiki's, it should stay on this wiki. Honestly WikisEditor would say anything to get more Staff, he requested that pretty much every admin he could find apply as a sysop on the GTA Wiki, and I was the first. You are too strict, nobody actually cares about the copyright laws, if Take-Two or anyone else finds out and they decide to be as strict as you, they'll just ask us to get rid of whatever they want us to, they understand that fan sites are a good thing for them so I don't think they would care. I don't recall asking for a vote, if I did I know thats not the right thing to do in this situation. Oh, so after deleting 100 images or so you decided to do what you should have been doing already? I didn't know that, you really should have been doing it all along though, it would have saved me a bit of hassle.

You don't seem to appreciate all I have done for this Wiki, when WikisEditor took over all he was doing was copying pages from the Grand Theft Wiki, I was the one who deleted all the fan fiction and vandalism that had accumulated in the 6 months that the GTA Wiki had no Staff, frankly there was a lot and it took me along time to get this Wiki back to how it was before, then over Staff came in and we started developing the Wiki further, then you came in, which I was fine with as since the whole Seth thing I've have respect for you, well know I don't, you talk shit about Staff members, If you were pissed, fine just say that and it was just a heat of the moment thing, if it wasn't then I don't think the rest of the Staff will be thrilled with you staying around. Tom Talk 10:18, September 1, 2011 (UTC)

The only other thing I'll mention is that after Haruhi Suzumiya pointed out that I was deleting images and not repairing pages with broken image links I started cleaning up after myself, renaming images and adding templates, only deleting inappropriate or useless images. Which, of course, you know, so please don't make inaccurate claims to make me look bad. McJeff (talk this way)/(stalk this way) 04:40, September 1, 2011 (UTC)

I'm sorry If I said anything that you took offense to, I do like you but I think the things you put on your userpage where a bit harsh, your a good Bureaucrat but I think there are better ways of getting your feelings about stuff out. I admit I am too leniant with copyright issues but on the L.A. Noire Wiki Take-Two, the parent company of Rockstar, contacted us about copyright stuff, they said we had to take down some info we'd put up which had been leaked but they were fine with us using any of there images, info, in game content etc. so I don't think there as strict with stuff as you think they'll be, I'll try and follow the copyright rules better in future. Anyway I'd prefer it if we just put this stuff behind us, I hope we can move on :). Tom Talk 14:34, September 1, 2011 (UTC)

Greg

Just a quick update, Greg created a sockpuppet, he posed as a woman, I asked Wikia to check it out and they have the same IP. Tom Talk 15:29, September 1, 2011 (UTC)

Bunnyjoke

Why did you block Bunnyjoke? The so called personal attack didn't really didn't seem bad, did he say something else that I missed? Tom Talk 13:13, September 2, 2011 (UTC)

Oh, ok then, I only found out about it when Ilan xd mentioned it in his request for promotion. Tom Talk 14:35, September 2, 2011 (UTC)

He left it on a GTA NiKo's and Bunnyjoke's talk pages too, I did a check user search on him and it said he shared an IP with Gtacrzy, I've sent another request to Wikia to make sure it wasn't a mistake though. Tom Talk 14:48, September 2, 2011 (UTC)


Sorry however earylier in the balacava page I made several edits more than I needed to see what I was trying to do was add hyperlinks however every time I tried doing it it didn't appear as the other links on the page can you deleate those edits behind the current one

Hey I just submitted what I felt was a valid easter egg that I have not been able to find documented anywhere. Some verification to whether or not it is well known would be much appreciated. R/gaming didn't seem the least bit interested and to be honest, I really wanna know how many other people this happened to.
