Yeah I am fine dude, just haven't been online much lately and when I do come on, I usually never sign in AIM or check this wiki. Messi1983 20:32, May 13, 2012 (UTC)

Gah.

Protect this . I haven't seen a single site that proves his name is Albert De Silva. DunewolfzBanner 17:46, May 27, 2012 (UTC)

Done ;) -- Ilan (XDEditsHome ) 18:44, May 27, 2012 (UTC)

GTA 5 vehicles

Okay, so I just want to ask what's the deal with the GTA 5 vehicles pages? I would understand if you protected and cleaned up the page, but deleting all the page and leaving a link to Grand Theft Wiki? Why's that? :/ -- Ilan (XDEditsHome ) 15:03, July 2, 2012 (UTC)

Because, honestly, I don't think this wiki has any content writers good enough to handle that particular page. I don't recognize the various vehicles by sight, definitely not well enough to watch the trailer and figure out what's supposed to be what. Also, we have too many kids who don't know how to write properly or edit wikis at all editing here and we can't take protection down off the article because they'll make a mess of it. Hopefully by linking directly to GrandTheftWiki's article those kids will get an idea of what a decent article looks like. Jeff (talk|stalk) 21:14, July 2, 2012 (UTC)
Why not make a page that has at least a short paragraph that says something along the lines of "This page lists all vehicles that appear in Grand Theft Auto V. Due to the speculation surrounding what vehicles will be appearing in Grand Theft Auto 5, the complete list of vehicles in GTA V will not be present until the full release of the game. For a list of vehicles seen in the Grand Theft Auto V/Trailer, see [[page that links to the other GTA wiki on the GTA V vehicles]]. There could also be a template on the top of the page explaining why there is no list. DunewolfzBanner 23:24, July 2, 2012 (UTC)

To-Do List

Hello there McJeff. As you are a fairly active admin, unlike the person who welcomed me, I thought I should ask here.

Does this wiki have a "To-Do List" of sorts? Something that people can look at to see what things need doing?

And, why is this page locked from anon editors? They have as much a right to talk as the rest of us. :/ - TidusTehSacrificer357 02:14, July 20, 2012 (UTC)

Well, okay then. I don't mind, it's still an extensive wiki :P And I prefer just to edit on Wikia stuff, it makes thing a lot easier. And I'll check out this "Tom" guy. ;P Thanks for your help. - TidusTehSacrificer357 07:26, July 20, 2012 (UTC)

Joshualeverburg1

I've just left him a message myself. I think we handled it pretty well. I found the misspelling of grammar hilarious but I managed not to mock him for it. Tom Talk 09:57, July 27, 2012 (UTC)

Saw it, voted, and wasted little time in closing request. Messi1983 (talk) 06:16, July 28, 2012 (UTC)

joshualeverburg1 Block

I've blocked joshualeverburg1 for a month. I think that this along with his other actions during his time on the Wiki is enough to warrant the block. I just thought I'd keep you informed. Tom Talk 23:26, July 28, 2012 (UTC)

Checkuser

I did the same, I checked his "GTA V Wiki" and he was online at the same time as the vandal so I think it's likely. Tom Talk 23:45, July 30, 2012 (UTC)

Well I guess he's blocked for good then. I've just contacted him about copying this Wiki's articles on his Wiki, he has two choices, provide a link to the orginal article on the copied article, or to completely re-write them. Tom Talk 17:10, July 31, 2012 (UTC)

Plagiarism

I would like to ask a few questions, why would Wikia not yet close the GTA V Wiki? By off limit standards that's complete plagiarism tha he made into those articles. That wiki was only supposed to provide information about GTA V, but now I think he wants to cover all major information regarding all GTA games. Not only that he's, also taking images from this wiki. I'm already checking out that wiki, if he continues to plagiarize. ExtremoMania Talk To Me This Way 23:52, August 1, 2012 (UTC)

Use Special:Contact to contact Wikia staff and tell them he's plagiarizing us in revenge for being blocked. They won't know he's doing it unless someone complains to them. Back when that XBox360Fan user was active he plagiarized us too, but they shut him down after Tom complained. Jeff (talk|stalk) 00:43, August 2, 2012 (UTC)
He can copy articles but he needs provide a link to the article he copied, apparently Wikia don't see how stupid that rule is. I told him this so he blocked me. Wikia then got involved and he sorted it out, he removed all copied information. Tom Talk 10:11, August 2, 2012 (UTC)
Hey I entered on GTA V Wiki just to see it and there is several copied images from this wiki.
I agree to close GTA V Wiki since it's doing plagiarism and thus, probably providing fake information. istalo Talk August 2, 2012
PS: Sorry about my bad english I'm Brazilian, and I didn't put time because on my country the time is different, sorry.
It's not our decision to close the GTA V Wiki, only Wikia Staff can do that and due to various rules which I think are ridiculous they won't do it. Tom Talk 23:06, August 2, 2012 (UTC)
He continues to plagiarize our images and he blocked Extremo for a year for adding source links to this wiki (which, remember, was what he was instructed to do if he was going to use our articles). I'm writing another complaint to Wikia. Jeff (talk|stalk) 23:27, August 2, 2012 (UTC)
Yeah I know it's only the Wikia staff that can close, but anyways, I hope they close it, and they blocked a guy that added source links?
Man I never knew that, that's pure plagiarism.
Anyways... someone already contacted Wikia Staff about this?
Someone better do that to alert them (If no one did). istalo Talk August 2, 2012
It turns out that Joshualeverburg1 didn't start GTAV Wiki. A user named Kujopawz did. AFAIK Kujopawz didn't do any plagiarizing, although I haven't checked in depth to make sure he didn't, that's probably why they haven't deleted the wiki yet. Remember when we had that XBox360Fan troll and he kept making wikis and Wikia would delete those. Anyway, Kujopawz has promoted Joshua to administrator and now Joshua is requesting promotion to bureaucrat. Since Joshua blocks everyone from this wiki who edits there, I'm going to post on Kujopawz page here and hope he responds. Jeff (talk|stalk) 23:48, August 2, 2012 (UTC)
The fact that Joshualeverburg1 didn't committed to follow the rules of the content of Wikia and blocking me as he considered it "spamming links to external sites". I'm just doing my job to protect every precious content from here and Wikia and adding some attributes (which I learned after a previous plagiarism I made). He's "wiki" musn't just be closed, I think Joshualeverburg1 now warrants him a global block. ExtremoMania Talk To Me This Way 10:30, August 3, 2012 (UTC)
Istalo, like I said I contacted Wikia and fixed the issue. Extremo, Joshua had every right to remove the source links you added, he had removed all copied content so he no longer needed to have them. Tom Talk 10:32, August 3, 2012 (UTC)
He's still copying images without attribution, and he's plagiarized at least one image from GrandTheftWiki as well. I sent Wikia another message yesterday suggesting that he should be globally blocked, and I also posted on Kujopawz' talk page on this wiki. Jeff (talk|stalk) 14:14, August 3, 2012 (UTC)
Madness, this guy seriously needs global blocking, or that wiki to be deleted at least. Any word back from Wikia yet? Messi1983 (talk) 10:09, August 4, 2012 (UTC)

(undent) They're "monitoring the situation" and want a full list of items he's plagiarized. I'll do it when I can be assed. I also dropped by Grand Theft Wiki and told Gboyers, but he hasn't been about for a few days so no response there either. Jeff (talk|stalk) 14:27, August 4, 2012 (UTC)
