Starting a new wiki

Hi, The Tom. I've started a new wiki called the Dan Houser Wiki. I'd like to know how to change the title, as done with this wiki's one. GrandTheftEditor (talk) 09:15, January 5, 2014 (UTC)

Pics

Hey Tom, every pics on different pages gets deleted for no reason, I hope this wiki is not being hacked, if it is hacked by user who got blocked from here, someone will be blocked globally for infinite. Cloudkit01 (talk) 18:44, January 5, 2014 (UTC)

The Broffles Waffles, Ferris Whale and other pages. Cloudkit01 (talk) 19:02, January 5, 2014 (UTC)

Cloudkit's right. I just had to remove the image on the Hampton Barns page cause the image was missing. And the Downtown Los Santos page's picture also is missing. Smashbro8 (talk) 19:05, January 5, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

At first, I thought it was something with Internet problems. But now I realise that it happens to others. Carl Johnson Jr. (talk) 19:06, January 5, 2014 (UTC)

I just checked out the Washington Beach Police Station's picture and that's also gone too! Smashbro8 (talk) 19:08, January 5, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

We should make a list of the pages with missing images. Smashbro8 (talk) 19:11, January 5, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

Do not remove the images. I'll try and find out what's happening but for now just leave it as it is. Tom Talk 19:12, January 5, 2014 (UTC)
Okay Tom I will undo my Hampton Barns image thing. Should we make a list of the pages with missing images? Smashbro8 (talk) 19:14, January 5, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

I looked at the GTA Wikia Crew page and it also has lost its image. LS11sVaultBoy (Talk) 19:16, January 5, 2014 (UTC)

Ah, con soggit, not the GTAWC image! No! --Tony1998 (Talker * Blogger * Stalker)-- 23:59, January 7, 2014 (UTC)

Seeing the images missing is freaking me out, I don't know why every images gets removed D: Cloudkit01 (talk) 19:22, January 5, 2014 (UTC)

I'm with you Cloudkit. I feel someone is hacking our wiki and deleting the images. Images can't delete themselves. Smashbro8 (talk) 19:23, January 5, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

Nobody deleted images. I can check if images have been deleted and none have. It's a common bug for Wiki's with as many images as we have, most images seem to be back now - for me at least. Tom Talk 19:27, January 5, 2014 (UTC)
None of the images are back on mine. They keep saying "The item is no longer available but now that you're here explore GTA Wiki!" Smashbro8 (talk) 19:33, January 5, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

Me too, it didn't come back on mine either, I hate that Wikias get bugs & glitchly alot :( Cloudkit01 (talk) 20:41, January 5, 2014 (UTC)

Hopefully it comes back later today. I'll give it two days to appear like this. If two days pass and it isn't fixed, someone's messing with the wiki. Smashbro8 (talk) 20:48, January 5, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

It's a glitch. Nobody hacked us and nobody is messing with the Wiki. Tom Talk 22:10, January 5, 2014 (UTC)
Okay. I understand that. Just checking. Hopefully it gets better soon. Smashbro8 (talk) 22:11, January 5, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8
Wikia have emailed me, they told me it's a known bug and they're trying to find a fix. It shouldn't be too much longer. Tom Talk 17:45, January 10, 2014 (UTC)

User

Hi The Tom! Smashbro8 here. This user is adding nonsense on pages which I had to undo about twice so far and has made a page that needs deleting. Deal with him man. 

PS: How do you revert edits? Smashbro8 (talk) 01:43, January 6, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

Oh lol, I know how to undo and I use the magnifying glass to make sure other user's edits are useful. Undoing is the one I can do, but when a user makes multiple edits and the edits can't be undone, how do you revert the person's edits? I'll show you a page with a reverted edit to show you what I mean. Smashbro8 (talk) 02:01, January 6, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8.

Here. On Philips?action=history Trevor Philips history page you can see the reverted edits thing. I want to know how to do that. Smashbro8 (talk) 02:05, January 6, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

Oh never mind. I thought all editors could do that. I'll just wait patiently for Requests for Promotion page to be unlocked. Thanks. Smashbro8 (talk) 03:17, January 6, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

Cool. I've noticed it's useful for when removed multiple useless edits in a row so that's why I asked. Thanks a lot pal! Smashbro8 (talk) 03:23, January 6, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

After going on the page history and clicking the two circles must I then press undo to revert the edits? And this is still only a staff thing or can all users do this part here? Smashbro8 (talk) 03:28, January 6, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

Thanks man! BTW, is there a set date the Requests for Promotion page is unlocked? 

Ok then! Thanks Smashbro8 (talk) 03:36, January 6, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

Redirects

Hey The Tom! Smashbro8 here. I need a couple of pages redirected. Red Dessert Avenue should be redirected to Red Desert AvenueMorningwood Blvd. needs redirecting to Morningwood BoulevardAdam's Apple Blvd. needs redirecting to Adam's Apple BoulevardBucaneer Way needs redirecting to Buccaneer Way. That's all for now! Thanks! Smashbro8 (talk) 04:21, January 7, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

Ok. I'll try that now! Smashbro8 (talk) 13:36, January 7, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

Thanks! But if only there was a random, unused page I could try using to learn what you've taught me! Smashbro8 (talk) 13:40, January 7, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

Most Wanted Criminals

Hey The Tom! Smashbro8 here! Can you explain to me why the Most Wanted criminals in GTA IV are considered deceased? Their status is determinant since the player has the option of whether to kill them or let them live. It is not required for them to be killed unless one is pursuing 100% Completion. I'm sorry but I don't understand this. Even some of the criminals' pages on the wiki say the status is determinant. Determinant characters are not considered deceased. Smashbro8 (talk) 19:24, January 7, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8 

OK I see now. Thanks. Smashbro8 (talk) 23:21, January 7, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

I'm trying to prevent myself from starting this again by deleting the sentence with tire in it so whatever way people prefer spelling it doesn't constantly get changed to a different way of spelling it if this makes sense. TheAdamBomb2 (talk) 02:12, January 8, 2014 (UTC)TheAdamBomb2

I know that but that's why I deletes the sentence so anyone else(including me) that writes american english doesn't change it and get banned.

I meant constantly change it. TheAdamBomb2 (talk) 02:52, January 8, 2014 (UTC)TheAdamBomb2

Hi, The Tom, I've just been wondering why the pictures on all the articles are not uploading properly. I've ruled out that its not my internet connection. If anyone knows whats causing this it would be greatly appreciated.


Mralpha 2012

Ok so how do I tell who's giving me warnings and who that's giving me warnings is actually allowed to. TheAdamBomb2 (talk) 16:36, January 8, 2014 (UTC)TheAdamBomb2

Z-type

Hello Tom,

Me and fellow editor TheAdamBomb2  have been discussing about a note on the "Locations" section.

As it appears; Adam wrote a note about he "found a random" Z-type at the Vanilla Ice's parking lots, is this just me, or does this sound like complete nonsense to me? Everybody knows that the Z-type is only available via the internet, or by failing Eye In The Sky. Honestly, I think he's trying to create some confusion here.


Greetings,

Mitchell Maljers

I apoligize but I can't provide evidence as I can't record because I don't have a capture card or whatever it is people use to record. And if I did I wouldn't know how to send you the recording. You're going to need to either belive me or not belive me. Either way is fine. But I know it spawned for me and I don't know how to hack so I didn't hack and if I did I wouldn't hack anything unless I joined the military(hacking skills would probably be more useful in the CIA)because it's wrong to hack peoples' social networking accounts and games because I know how to or really it's wrong to do it in general.

Sorry, I forgot to sign my last message about how it's wrong to hack and I can't provide evidence about the Z-Type spawn because I don't have the tools needed. TheAdamBomb2 (talk) 19:42, January 8, 2014 (UTC)TheAdamBomb2

It appears that Cloudkit01 has edited a page I created called Air Theatre, a building in GTA V, redirecting removing all text and adding a redirection to a different Air Theatre page. When I clicked "Redirect to Air Theatre", it brought me to the "you"re creating a new article screen". I'm not 100% sure or making an accusation but I think he's doing this to take credit for the creation of air theatre. TheAdamBomb2 (talk) 19:48, January 8, 2014 (UTC)TheAdamBomb2

I don't know exactly where but it's near the Vinewood Sign. I looked it up and found pictures of it on the map and i went in game to the shown locations and found a building with the sign "Air Theatre". TheAdamBomb2 (talk) 00:58, January 9, 2014 (UTC)TheAdamBomb2

File:Dominator-GTAV-Back.jpg

Hello Tom! It appears like my computer uploaded this image as I was renaming it to "Dominator-GTAV-Rear" before I uploaded it. However it did not appear while I was doing so, I just recently found it but there's no need for it as I have uploaded the one with the right name while this somehow got uploaded too. The point is there's no need for dupes so could you please delete it?

I have a question too, as it seems like most of the images has been deleted would it be alright if I would add images from all of the vehicles (preferably from SA, IV, EFLC and V maybe even from III and VC) but use the ones on the Social Club for thumbnail of the vehicles in V? (Rentedhitmanben (talk) 22:43, January 9, 2014 (UTC))

Questions

Hi The Tom! Smashbro8 here. All though this is not much of a problem, I wanted to ask you if The Families are the same gang with a different name as the Grove Street Families or if they are two different gangs that just are similar to one another? Also the Grove Street in Grand Theft Auto V is not the same street in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas right? Smashbro8 (talk) 04:32, January 11, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

Unneeded Category?

Hi Tom. I was just doing the usual editing when I came across the Gang areas category. Do we really need it? All it does is tell people that there is a gang in that area which from my view, many people won't care about. Anyway, I thought I'd come and ask you about it. What do you think? LS11sVaultBoy (Talk) 10:50, January 11, 2014 (UTC)

I created it around 6 months ago, I started to find it a little bit useless now but I'm not completely sure if we should delete it, but if Tom agrees, I agree with deleting. Anyways, I was thinking about the category Places and its subdivsions : Places in San Fierro, L.C, V.C etc... and I think this category disturbs the organization from locations around the GTA series, plus, it's all mixed with cities from different universes ( Places in L.C in GTA III with places in GTA IV). Should we delete it too? --Thomas0802 • (talkedits) 11:06, January 11, 2014 (UTC)

Confusion

Just a question you're edit on Chop the dog's page what did you actualy do? i checked it and do not see any difference. Ölbohrinsel 04:07, January 12, 2014 (UTC)

Feedback on Page

Hey, Tom! I created this page about the history of GTA V's title updates. I wanted to get some feedback about it, if that is okay with you. In a little while, I'll put up references so readers will know where update notes came from.

Deleting a crew page

http://gta.wikia.com/Crews/FIB_Agency. I would appreciate if you delete this incomplete crew page. I would do it myself, but I assume only someone near your rank on the wiki is allowed to delete pages.

Site background

Hi, The Tom! I was just passing through and noticed the background looks a little odd. I don't know if it was meant to look the way it does, but under the wordmark and navigation it looks as if another bg is trying to show through, perhaps tiled? Let me know if it's intended or if you might need some assistance tweaking it ;) Raylan13@Wikia (talk) 18:30, January 15, 2014 (UTC)

Sure thing! You can see the ss here. It's where the palm trees are to either side in the center. Raylan13@Wikia (talk) 19:07, January 15, 2014 (UTC)
I hope so ;) What's it supposed to look like? Raylan13@Wikia (talk) 19:10, January 15, 2014 (UTC)

Most likely - let me poke it with a stick. Raylan13@Wikia (talk) 19:27, January 15, 2014 (UTC)

The first poke may have worked. Looks good on my end - is it still showing correctly for you? Raylan13@Wikia (talk) 19:51, January 15, 2014 (UTC)
Glad I could help :) Raylan13@Wikia (talk) 19:54, January 15, 2014 (UTC)

Page??

Hey The Tom! Smashbro8 here! Is there a reason for this page to exist? I can't see how it helps us...

Thanks! Smashbro8 (talk) 19:28, January 15, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

Page rename

Hi, Tom. I need this page to be renamed. "Buildings" is spelled wrong, and there also needs to be proper capitalisation. Cheers! Carl Johnson Jr. (talk) 19:39, January 15, 2014 (UTC)

TV Shows in GTA V

Hi, I noticed that the link "TV" redirects to "TV Shows in GTA IV". I think a page about GTA V TV shows should exist too, or the current one should be modified to include GTA V info. Thanks.DocVinewood (talk) 20:12, January 15, 2014 (UTC)

lol, nevermind, it exists and it's called Television in GTA V. Sorry xDDocVinewood (talk) 20:14, January 15, 2014 (UTC)

Blogs

Hi The Tom! Smashbro8 here. This user has some blogs which I find complete nonsense. They are littered with poor grammar and are hard to read and understand. Maybe they should be deleted...Smashbro8 (talk) 05:21, January 16, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

S4NY4R KuRDBoZZ

Hi The Tom! Smashbro8 here! This user has done it again. He has added his pointless info again after you warned him and Cloudkit01 had to revert his edits. I think he has to be blocked because he is not listening to staff. Smashbro8 (talk) 19:48, January 16, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

Why are you deleting my photo

RE:Blocks

Yeah, when I was telling him about it, I noticed that you had blocked him previously but when I was actually setting the block, I forgot. Have you reset the block? LS11sVaultBoy (Talk) 12:37, January 17, 2014 (UTC)

Photo Problems

Hey tom, every time I try to view any of my previous photos that I have uploaded, it gives me this: http://i.imgur.com/dCA29E3.png is there anyway I can fix this? Snugeez (talk) 17:24, January 18, 2014 (UTC)

New wiki

INVITE

Today, a new subsidiary Wiki of the GTA Wiki has been created. The new, hereafter extravagant GTA Songs Wiki.

The Wiki is about all the songs around the radio stations in the GTA series, it's hard to me to build this Wiki alone, so I'm inviting you to help a little bit, step by step, brick by brick.

I'm trying to create a Wiki, bringing articles to an identical look-a-like method. They are actually very short. The songs infoboxes should contain the name, image (offcial album cover), size, artist, radio stations, game, year and genre. The header section should look like this: Example is a song performed by Artist Example featured in the radio station [[Example]] in GameExample. The sections are the following :

  • Lyrics - you can pick one from the internet, include the <center> at the top and bottom from the section and don't forget the colons (:). Remember to keep 20 free lines between the header section and the lyrics section.
  • Trivia (optional) - If the song can be listen during a cutscene (example : Arab Money).
  • Video - The best video you can find about it on Youtube.


This is an optional invite, I hope the Wiki will turn up extremely amazing in few months, just like the GTA Myths Wiki did.

Anyways, I'll ask the bureaucrats if the Wiki can become an affiliate when stronger.

Cheers! --Thomas0802 • (talkedits) 01:27, January 19, 2014 (UTC)

Radio DJs

Hey Tom, not to bother you something or whatnot, the Radio DJs who appear themselves in every GTA games, should we add the images of them, their date of birth and what city and state they were born on their pages or leave it the way it was before? Cloudkit01 (talk) 14:53, January 20, 2014 (UTC)

Page renaming

Sup, Tom. I need you to rename this page and replace the (GTA V) with (HD Universe). Thanks! Carl Johnson Jr. (talk) 16:07, January 20, 2014 (UTC)

New Patroller(s)

Hey Tom. With Thomas0802's promotion, that means that there's an open spot(s) on the staff patroller team. Shall we allow people to make requests? LS11sVaultBoy (Talk) 20:21, January 24, 2014 (UTC)

I think DocVinewood could aswell and probably Carl Johnson Jr. LS11sVaultBoy (Talk) 07:34, January 25, 2014 (UTC)
I'll let them know. LS11sVaultBoy (Talk) 09:59, January 26, 2014 (UTC)

9000 articles

Hi! I represent the Russian Grand Theft Wiki. I congratulate you on the creation of the 9,000th article. We cheer for you. We hope that you will have 10,000 articles in near future.

Just wondering

Hey Tom. Should we start erasing all links around the quotes in the Wiki? --Thomas0802 • (talkedits) 23:01, January 25, 2014 (UTC)

Thanks a lot Tom. As an admin, I will be renaming images and cleaning up stubs. BTW, have you seen the new GTA Songs Wiki? How do you think it looks? --Thomas0802 • (talkedits) 14:34, January 26, 2014 (UTC)

Page renaming

Hi Tom, there are a couple of pages that need to be renamed: Red's Diner should be Rex's Diner and Hitting Kids Works Wonder should be Hitting Kids Works Wonders. Thanks.DocVinewood (talk) 16:05, January 26, 2014 (UTC)

Another one: Perrara Beach Motel should be Perrera Beach Motel.DocVinewood (talk) 16:16, January 29, 2014 (UTC)

Promotion

Hey The Tom! Smashbro8 here! From where must I go to request for a promotion to be a patroller? Smashbro8 (talk) 16:39, January 26, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

Should I put the request in the "Active Requests" section or where should I put it? Should it be a simple "I'd like to be a patroller"? Smashbro8 (talk) 19:37, January 26, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

Must I now message staff users to let them know that I have made a Request for Promotion so that they can vote? I'm confused. Smashbro8 (talk) 18:47, January 27, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

Myths Wiki redirect on homepage.

Hello, I'm a bureaucrat on the GTA Myths Wiki, and I noticed that the current logo in the "Affiliates" section is outdated. May you or another staff member please update the logo? Thanks a bunch, CommunistOverlordJim

Hey, The Tom. Let's just say that I'm really picky about which weapon I use in Grand Theft Auto 4. And what really bothering me is how on Three Leaf Clover the set me up the the M4A1. I want to use the AK-47 on that mission and it keeps setting me with the M4 so I have to use the "Poor" gun cheat after the cutscene. I know I should be alright after I enter the cheat but I really do not want anything to do with the M4A1 in that mission. I would be fine if it showed Niko with the M4A1 in the cutscene and after it I would have the AK-47. I want no cheats involved if you have a resoloution.

Business Category

Hi The Tom! Smashbro8 here! I've noticed that the Businesses category is no longer being used. Should I delete the categories from all the pages it is on? Also, what is the Companies category about? Smashbro8 (talk) 03:55, January 30, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

Speaking of Promotion, would you mind giving me a vote on the Requests for Promotion page? Smashbro8 (talk) 02:17, January 31, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

Unused and image policy violating files

Just like I said to Ilan, I found this special page, a page listing all the unused images around the Wiki. Almost all of them are violating the policy. Can you help me with deleting them? Thanks. --Thomas0802 • (talkedits) 11:50, February 1, 2014 (UTC)

Yep, it's true. I deleted like 200 pics in one hour, it's a good way to keep things organized. --Thomas0802 • (talkedits) 12:21, February 1, 2014 (UTC)

Promotion

Hi The Tom! Smashbro8 here! Carl Johnson Jr. has made a request for promotion on the Requests for Promotion page. Thanks! Smashbro8 (talk) 18:52, February 1, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

Deleted Page

Hey Tom. I was just wondering (because the guy is telling me about it), why did you delete the page for Ortega's vehicle. LS11sVaultBoy (Talk) 00:02, February 2, 2014 (UTC)

Ortega's trailer

If ever you feel curious, here is the proof that you were wrong and that there really is a vehicle version of Ortega's Trailer:

It exists in the game's files as proptrailer. If you spawn it with a save editor or get one of your buddies to do it for you, you will see(Note: iirc, set bodystyle to 198 or the vehicle will be missing some walls). Next time, please do not be so close-minded when someone tries to show you proof that something does exist. TheAlphatheOmega (talk) 00:36, February 2, 2014 (UTC)

Re: Ortega's trailer

Ok, now I see where you are coming from(plus I am on my meds so I am calmer). But it is not a modded vehicle per se. The vehicle exists in the stock game files, it is just never seen outside of the mission where it replaces the static object(the game deletes the static obj and transplants the vehicle in it's place). Think of it like the RC Cam from GTA:SA. It was a vehicle to be used for a single mission(that got cut, but that is beside the point)like the trailer, but nobody even knew it existed until they went through the gamefiles. Anyways, I don't really care anymore. I thought it would be an interesting subject for an article being that it was a vehicle that nobody knew about. I still believe it should have a mention somewhere, but I don't care if it doesn't get it's own article.

In addition, the proptrailer apparently does have an "engine" because when you get in it exhaust smoke effects start coming out of vents in the top of the trailer. That makes me think that it was actually "driving" backwards when you use Trevor's truck to push it, because as you probably have seen, it is really hard to push any stationary vehicle and get it to move in GTA V.

Boat

Hey The Tom! Smashbro8 here! I was playing GTA V and came to the end of the street that connects the street to Cape Catfish and found this boat here at the fishing dock. It's named the Shitzu Santiago. Have you ever heard of such a boat in GTA V? I have pictures if you need them. Smashbro8-Sig-pt1 (Smashbro8-Sig-pt2) 02:42, February 3, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

Thanks for the welcome, Tom. I will be helping any way I can. I am going through looking for broken images and then taking them and uploading them.

You can see his message on his talk page if you go into history, but I wouldn't advise you too if it's gonna hurt your feelings. I asked you if you feel bad, because as an editor here, we work together, we stick together. 

Also, I'm going to upload the pics and put them on your talk page for you to see. Smashbro8-Sig-pt1 (Smashbro8-Sig-pt2) 00:25, February 4, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

Yes I have seen trolls but I never been insulted by one. I am glad you don't care, because I was gonna offer to help cheer you up if you were unhappy about what he said. Also, what do you think about this boat I found? Smashbro8-Sig-pt1 (Smashbro8-Sig-pt2) 00:47, February 4, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

Okay! Tomorrow I will create the boat's page then after you have said what you think about it. BTW, if you need to find it, I found one at the fishing dock at Cape Catfish, however, I don't know if it is a permanent spawning point yet. Smashbro8-Sig-pt1 (Smashbro8-Sig-pt2) 01:00, February 4, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

Another Vandal

Hey Tom, we got another vandal here, it should be blocked. Cloudkit01 (talk) 00:01, February 5, 2014 (UTC)

A user by the name of Chriskim has been deleting things from the Fort Zancudo page and doing things like changing section names to things like "It's a bathroom!" If you look on the recent activity, I undone some of them. You should speak to him about this. TheAdamBomb2 (talk) 00:02, February 5, 2014 (UTC)TheAdamBomb2

Promotion

Hey The Tom! Smashbro8 here! Just wanted to let you know that you should make a vote on the Requests for Promotion page so that one of us is elected to Patroller. Also, have you found the boat yet? Smashbro8-Sig-pt1 (Smashbro8-Sig-pt2) 16:53, February 5, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

I just wanted to let you know, I am not being stubborn. This is how Franklin's house was for me after I finished the game. It was already settled. I think it probably just glitched for me if I'm wrong about it. TheAdamBomb2 (talk) 16:58, February 5, 2014 (UTC)TheAdamBomb2

I've read the comments and I also was expecting my request to be unsuccessful. I meant to close the vote and make Carl Johnson Jr. a patroller since he has all Yes except for Dodo8's vote. Don't forget to vote on him! You didn't find that boat right? Smashbro8-Sig-pt1 (Smashbro8-Sig-pt2) 17:07, February 5, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

I know i just thought that since it was done right when I finished the game, that it was for everyone else. So I changed it one the page. I was just explaining that this is how it was for me. TheAdamBomb2 (talk) 17:11, February 5, 2014 (UTC)TheAdamBomb2

Oh ok! I'll keep that in mind! Also, I found the boat at the fishing dock (the looped road at the end) in Cape Catfish. I need to keep playing GTA V to find out if this is a permanent spawning point and I will let you know if I see the boat again. Smashbro8-Sig-pt1 (Smashbro8-Sig-pt2) 17:14, February 5, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

New Los Santos montage

Hi, I think the HD Los Santos main page needs a new montage picture, since the older one has disappeared, along with many others in the wiki. City articles are one of the most important and most visited and this one looks bad without a main image. I'm asking you because I've done some montages and I'd like to have your permission before altering the page. These are 3 montages I've done: 

http://s29.postimg.org/xrwq78t53/LSMontage.png


http://s28.postimg.org/t2a0a9cot/LSMontage2.png


http://s27.postimg.org/5nlhkuwz7/LSMontage3.png

These are some examples, but I'd like to know what you think and if any of them is good enough to be added. I can make a different one if you think another place should be added (I wanted to include Grove Street but I haven't found any good pic). If not, maybe another user can make a better one, but in any case I think the page needs a new image. Thanks! DocVinewood (talk) 19:39, February 5, 2014 (UTC) 

Header image is messy

Hello,

The header image should be reverted to the version without the gray area present, dated 19:37, 6 May 2013, as it does not cover the buttons correctly on any other resolution other than the one Dodo8 relied on, this image is displayed on my screen with a full HD resolution (1920x1080). I recommend reverting to a clean background version of the image and adding the following CSS line to MediaWiki:Common.css (affects all layouts) or MediaWiki:Wikia.css (only affects current layout):

.WikiHeader > nav li {background: #757575}

Reverting the image and adding the CSS line will produce the following. --Lyrixn (talk) 13:45, February 6, 2014 (UTC)

Masih De Santa Sockpuppetry

I just caught Masih De Santa using another account. Compare the one I just blocked to his actual account and you will notice that they were both born on March 4th and they have both put where they live as "English".

Properties

Another small category issue. There are two disarranged categories: Properties and Properties in Grand Theft Auto V. Which one do you think we should keep? --Thomas0802 • (talkedits) 13:16, February 22, 2014 (UTC)

Fact. But I realized that businesses that can be bought by the player in previous games are referred as assets, like: Assets in GTA Vice City, Assets in GTA San Andreas, Assets in GTA Liberty City Stories etc.. but in GTA V, these assets are now known as properties. So I'm not sure if the category Properties should be a big glossary to all the properties in the series with its subcategories or we could rename all the assets pages with properties (Assets in GTA Vice City = Properties in GTA Vice City) + the categories aswell. What do you think? --Thomas0802 • (talkedits) 20:54, February 22, 2014 (UTC)

Far Out

Was there a reason for deleting the Far out page? And should we just create sections under the page Omega for the missions given by Omega called, Far Out, and, The Final Frontier?

About Terry and Clay death

Look, i undestand and agree that Trevor would have killed Terry and Clay in that mission, i left this very clear in the first trivia that i put in that page. But, the game still gives the player an opportunity to let them both live, and i don't think this should just be ignored. I'm not saying this because i'm a desperate The Lost fan that want to believe that they are alive, no, i'm totally indifferent about it.

What i'm saying is that, if we are going to edit this page according to what we think its cannon or not, than we should by logic apply the same rule to the other pages. Michael and Trevor status should be alive, because its completely out of character for Franklin to kill either of them. Why theres one rule to Terry and Clay but another rule to the rest of the wiki?

IN MY OPINION, i think we should keep the status of both of them determinant, and let that piece of trivia there to explain why. I know the change of they live its very small and require a lot of work, but it does not matter, the change its still there! And change the status to deceased and delete the trivia its just ignore the problem, not solve it. 

Answer me, so i can edit the page again or not and sorry for any english mistakes. 558050 (Talk) 16:28, February 27, 2014 (UTC)

OK, man. I understand if you are tired of discuss about this subject. It's just that this is the first time that i was talking to you (in fact this is the first time i talk to anyone here), and right in my first response i felt offended. As you said: it's hard to perceive tone through messages, so i did not know if that was your intention, but still bothered me.

Anyway, i'm not the kind of person that would insult someone just because i don't agree with him, so if we ever talk again, i hope that i don't pass the wrong impression about me. Bye. 558050 (Talk) 19:53, February 27, 2014 (UTC)

But that is no excuse and it will not happen again. Thanks again for changing back to the good old readable format.

Altruist Cult as a gang

Why aren't the Altruists a gang? Seeing as Merryweather and the Killer Hipsters has been added, why not the Altruists? They fit the definition; they are a group of people that get together to engage in illegal activity, in their case ritualistic murder, rape, and cannibalism. They even have their own gang attack in GTA Online. I'd say they have a better claim to be considered a gang than the Hipsters do. Polpun (talk) 00:57, March 4, 2014 (UTC)

RE: RE: About Missions in GTA IV

It's okay to follow the style as before, and it's okay to leave the order as before at this moment. Actually what I still thinking about how to do is found out the way to make it as the "Missions Unlocks & Unlocked By" graph pic I post above, but the mission names are able to click for link. Personally that pic is very useful for me to read the actual structure of which mission unlocks the others, but it still need more explanation to fit the standard for show to public.

Gibea (talk) 07:33, March 4, 2014 (UTC)

Gibea has just introduced the flowchart he was talking about, I think it is messy and the use of a flowchart is not appropriate since it imply that by following the arrows you can skip missions. A correct form of flowchart need to go through ALL the missions that are required to complete the storyline (that will be really messy). This is an unnecessary change to the page Missions in GTA IV and I prefer that it should be removed. Furthermore I have noticed that Gibea is not proficient in English, which makes it hard to discuss the changes with him. Since I do not intend to engage a useless edit battle with him, I am asking you to rule on this matter, Thank you for your time, Whatever007 (talk) 14:22, March 12, 2014 (UTC)

Mob and Crime Family

Please, Tom, don't make any rush decisions. We already have articles about Korean Mob and Albanian Mob, so the word itself is correct enough.

The problem is, we don't know if Bonelli's mob can be called the entire mafia family. It's suppose it being big enough and has a strong hierarchy. As far as we know, it's just bunch of goons, so please, rename it back to mob, until we know more. "Crime Family" is something like Ancelottis or Messinas.

Also, I don't even know what kind of term this is, "Crime Family". LCPD Database uses term "Crime Syndicate" and people use term "Family".

Thanks, Orto Dogge (talk) 19:18, March 4, 2014 (UTC)


Yeah, it sounds correct, if it is not for one "but".
The same group of people appears on construction site during gang wars in multiplayer. I guess it makes them gang.
But since we don't know if he is part of some family or if he is family himself, I guess the term "Mob" will be the closest to the true. It's just group of armed people in illegal activity. It can't be called "bodyguards", neither "crime family".
So what do you think? Legit? Orto Dogge (talk) 19:26, March 4, 2014 (UTC)


Wow, thank you very much, Tom! Wasn't expenting such objectivity in such arguable question! And since you this open in discussion, can you please tell your opinion in this and this topics? I really need either support or arguments, so you'll be more than welcome. You've already proved yourself the right man twice in my short practice on this Wikia, so I'll be happy to sort out any future problems with you!

Game Guide App

Hi, The Tom!

As you might be aware the Grand Theft Auto wiki has its own dedicated game guide app (focused heavily on GTA V) outside of our all-inclusive games app. To help promote it, we were wondering if you might be willing to have a badge placed on the main page of the site? It is 300x136 and would sit in the top of the right rail, or close to it. It would link to both the Google Play and Apple Store versions of the app.

As an idea, to stop this bullshit as I'm tired of it.

Sorry, Tom, but why do you think, that information about surname of the character not being a surname is not worth to be in trivia? Orto Dogge (talk) 16:17, March 10, 2014 (UTC)

Okay, if you say so, let's keep it that way. But I'm a little bit disappointed how you put your personal opinion above rare facts and information, which could be useful or just interesting. There are a lot of Trivia in this Wikia, which can be removed because "nobody cares". There is a very blurred line between "somebody cares" and "nobody cares" and I'm not sure if this is right thing to do: draw it based on your personall opinions. I think the whole Trivia section is made for arguable and off-topic information. Information about name of the character and developers' oversight is definitely should be there. But if you don't think so, I'm nobody to judge.
And please, answer me in Kkangpae discussion. It somehow affects matter of personal opinions too. Orto Dogge (talk) 17:34, March 10, 2014 (UTC)

Kkangpae

Actually, I think, this is something people should get used to. If Rockstar already got used to it after GTA IV and CW (where they were called Midtown Gangsters) — we should too. There were times, when people considered words like Mafia, Tongs and Yakuza not English enough, but these times are gone. If Rockstar took the risk of calling them Kkangpaes, we obviously should too.

But to make searching easier for other people, we can always put text "May be you're looking for Kkangpaes..." on the top of Korean Mob page. There are a lot of complications like this in this Wikia.

Orto Dogge (talk) 16:26, March 10, 2014 (UTC)


As I said, it is not necessary to make user's life harder, because they still could find the page by typing Korean Mob. It's just wrong for Wikia to use made-up name instead of original ones. For example, real Wikipedia has an article with the name Kkangpae so I can't see why are we worse than them.
More than that, Rockstar used the name Kkangpae, so once again, I don't frankly think this it is our call to make, how to name this article. If Rockstar and Wikipedia say "Kkangpae", how can we argue with that? This is not our decision.
"Mafia" will never be the common word if at one point of history people won't decide to use it in common life and articles. Rockstar and Wikipedia say, that this point for Korean criminals has come. Are you sure that your opinion on what's common and what's not can be more appropriate, than their?
Once again. Rockstar says "Kkangpae". Wikipedia says "Kkangpae". GTA Wikia obviously should say "Kkanhgpae" too.
And for any future complications we can always put the link on Korean Mob article.
Orto Dogge (talk) 16:48, March 10, 2014 (UTC)


Oh, thanks a lot Tom. I know how difficult it is to prevent argument of becoming personal, especially when you have strong opinion in it. You're natural-born moderator, administrator or bureaucrat, I respect you for that very much.
The only time when the name is used is during the gang attack on property (The Hen House). Then text about attack of Kkangpae appears. I was surprised, because first time I discovered this word was during researches on Korean Mob in GTA IV.
Thank you again for putting a logical and noble end to our discussion.
What about Trivias and Zverovnas, I actually learned a lot of useful and interesting information via this WIkia's trivia and I was very upset when I saw, that most of it was deleted. Trivia isn't this important part of an article and I think, that it's just the right place for such facts. Especially when it comes to very stub article of Zverovna, which only interested side is her mispelled name.
But, as I said, this is not my call and I trust you on your opinion. I'm more concerned about gangs, since they are very un-linear in HD Universe. It's interesting for me to work on gangs' articles.
Thank you again and again, Tom. Orto Dogge (talk) 19:50, March 10, 2014 (UTC)

Salvatore & Cilli

'sup bro,

In LCS, during the mission "The Portland Chainsaw Masquerade", Toni kills (more like butchers) Vinnie Cilli for attempting to kill him in previous missions. Now, I don't remember excatly, but did Salvatore comment on Vinnie's death or not? -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 18:17, March 10, 2014 (UTC)

The page "Missions in Gta IV" has been changed again by Gibea... please undo the changes and speak to him about making unnecessary changes.

About the Mission Path

I really disapointed the chart removed because of "It doesn't fit the style of the Wiki". The major reason I made that chart because the recent Missions page can't show the structure of the mission paths, that means it "lack of founction" to show up any relationship of the missions. What I think is until has "any better way" to show the path, then it is okay to remove that chart. Gibea (talk) 21:45, March 12, 2014 (UTC)

Oh, I didn't see your post! I don't have any attitude with you, Tom, don't you worry about it. More than that, somehow I even see you as a friend here. Not the best friend, obviously, but a person, which I respect and can deal with. But you're cold. And sometimes I pity people, whos trivia you've deleted. Because, just like them, I'm the kind of person who thinks, that there is no such thing as "too much facts about GTA".
But please, don't see me as a guy, who wants to make your life harder. Even if I do so. :) Orto Dogge (talk) 19:22, March 13, 2014 (UTC)

RE:

It's something pretty minor, really, but shouldn't the titles of the pages have capitalised letters (except for prepositions like of, the, etc.)?

Mikey Klebbitz (talk) 10:03, March 15, 2014 (UTC)


Sorry for breaking in your discussion with Mikey, but I think someone should point out some facts.

Some resources , including Wikipedia , which you referenced in your previous answer to Mikey, say that all words in titles should be capitalized. Quotes:

Always capitalize the first and last words of titles of publications regardless of their parts of speech. Capitalize other words within titles, including the short verb forms Is, Are, and Be. —' Grammarbook.com

In English, some authors/publishers capitalize the first word and the last word of titles. In addition, they believe that all nouns, pronouns, adjectives, verbs, adverbs, and subordinate conjunctions should be capitalized. — Wikipedia

Another important thing is other gangs' names in other articles, such as Korean Mob. They word "mob" is usually capitalized.

And another important thing is LCPD Database which we should see as a source. It uses capitalized form of names, like Ancelotti Crime Syndicate. That's how we understand, that this is the name and not just specification.

More than that, Wikipedia uses "crime family" as specification. We use it as a part of the name. Wikipedia doesn't have any source, which reference to the Gambinos, for example, can be considered as official name. We have such source, which is GTA itself. So if GTA uses term "Crime Family" or "Crime Syndicate" with capital letters, we should follow the example.

And... I know it's silly thing to say, but why don't somebody rename this articles on Wikipedia? :) I'm not sure the matter of capitalization was discussed there as much as here. :)

And if you interested in my opinion, "Ancelotti crime family" as a title just looks ugly.

Still no attitude. Orto Dogge (talk) 16:34, March 15, 2014 (UTC)

Crime family isn't capitalised on any reputable Mafia related website. GTA never says "Crime Family" to my knowledge. I don't have time to go into some big debate, and no I'm not interested in your opinion - which I completely disagree with as I believe that "Ancelotti Crime Family" looks ugly. Tom Talk 17:03, March 15, 2014 (UTC)
Either get some time for debate, or stop undoing things, which people have time to think and debate about.
"Reputable Mafia websites", as you call them, write about real-life crime families. We're writing about gangs in GTA, and most of them have names, which means capital letters. Them families are called "Crime Syndicates" in-game and I know, that this wikia is supposed to follow exactly this example in naming articles. So articles about crime families in GTA IV should be renamed in "Crime Syndicates" with capital letters, And inside the article itself, not in the title, the gangs can be called families or crime families, since this is not official name.
And I don't know why I, as a foreigner, should teach you your language, but in English all words in titles should be written with capital letters, as two resources, which I presented you above, totally confirmed. I don't think that your "reputable Mafia websites" are more reputable in the matter of grammary, than GrammarBook.com.
Still no attitude, Orto Dogge (talk) 18:36, March 15, 2014 (UTC)
If that isn't attitude then I don't know what is - watch it or I will block you. You've got a history with this so you shouldn't need another warning.
You're not teaching me about my own language, you're Googling things that you think contradict my points. You're a hypocrite for disputing a Wikipedia title as not valid when you've previously used one as "evidence".
Mikey was undoing my edits without consulting me, so I undid his and consulted him - not you.
The term "family" is used constantly in game when describing Mafia groups, far more than one or two mentions on the LCPD Database. "Family" implies an actual family - such as the McReary family - so crime family fits perfectly.
"All words in titles should be written in capitals"? No, that might be the case in American English which you seem to be using - or rather the websites you copy everything you say from use - but in real English that is not the case.
When I say "I don't have time to go into some big debate" I mean I don't have time to talk to you. It's never a simple discussion with you. You make it far more complex than is necessary, I only have limited time available on the Wiki and you're consuming that time by arguing about everything I do.
I'm normally willing to have a democratic discussion, I could've easily sorted out any issues with Mikey - who I reiterate, undid my revisions before I undid his - but you get involved when you shouldn't. Tom Talk 19:58, March 15, 2014 (UTC)
So...like I said, I prefer "Crime Family" to "crime family", but after checking Wikipedia's mafia pages, for the title, I confirmed that they do write "crime family".
Again, this is something very minor, and I don't think it is worth arguing over, but I'll leave that for both of you to discuss.
That said, I'm out of the discussion at this point. You sort this arguing out yourselves.
Mikey Klebbitz (talk) 20:04, March 15, 2014 (UTC)
That was so much simpler. That would've been the end of it and everything would've been fine. See that Orto? That was all that was really needed. I agree Mikey, it is a was a very minor issue.  
Now that the two people whose discussion this was have agreed, this is over. Tom Talk 20:11, March 15, 2014 (UTC)
Why do you make it personal? I don't get it.
Look at yourself. You're threatening me. This is not a warning, I didn't break any rule. You're just see some personal issue in discussing capital letters and make threats, using your tools as administrator. This is definitely unappropriate.
More than that, you can't keep discussion without insults. Why did you call me a hyprocrite? I mean, I see why, but this is a misunderstanding. And this misunderstanding didn't give you right to insult a user.
And what's that? "See that Orto"? "That alright Orto Dogge?" Now you mention me in summaries for edits. This is childish. You're blaiming me for making things personal, but it's you who make fun of me in front of people.
I never, never did anything just because you do otherwise. And I always try to discuss everything I do, especialy with you, since I know, that our opinions seem to be different too often. I never make it personal, never tell anybody about not having enough time, even if I really don't have enough time. I always discuss things with people, always do my best to lose tense with them, always apologize if they get me wrong, just like you did. And it's still not enough for you. 
I think that your behaviour is unappropriate, especially for a staff member. This is a honor to be a bureaucrat and this is a responsibility too. You can't just say: "I don't have time". Correct me if I'm wrong, but this is your job. Why do I have time to explain you every little detail about my point? I use links from internet, I use proofs from GTA, and in reply get just opinions and complains about lack of time.
Do you have any higher authority here? I want to discuss it with them. This is unappropriate behaviour you demonstrate and this is not acceptable for Wiki standarts. I want somebody impartial to judge us, I can't reason with you.
Still no attitude, Orto Dogge (talk) 21:40, March 15, 2014 (UTC)


Why do you make it personal? I don't get it.

Look at yourself. You're threatening me. This is not a warning, I didn't break any rule. You're just see some personal issue in discussing capital letters and make threats, using your tools as administrator. This is definitely unappropriate.

You keep saying "still no attitude", that in itself is you displaying a negative attitude, you're being condescending. I'm not making it personal, I don't know you as a person so that's impossible; I know you only as an editor who doesn't allow me to do my job because he's disputing everything I do.
Hypocrite is not an insult, you were being hypocritical, therefore I stated that you are a hypocrite. No insult.
You're talking to me in a disrespectful way and I don't buy the "no attitude" thing you keep saying. You are talking to me with an attitiude. "I don't know why I, as a foreigner, should teach you your language" - this is attitude. You can't deny that, and that is uncivil behaviour and against the rules.
I said "See that Orto?" because I wanted you to see how simple it could've been. I'm not making fun of you. I said "That alright Orot Dogge" because it seems to be getting to the point where I can't edit without a grilling from you.
My point was that you leave me page long messages when you don't need to. You got involved in a discussion between me and Mikey when you didn't need to. Like I said, I try to be democratic, but your making my duties on the Wiki a lot more difficult than they need to be.
I'm not trying to make anything personal, I'm trying to get a point across to you. My behaviour is not inappropriate, and I'm sad that you think it is, but I hope you see my point now.
This is a part time hobby of mine, not my real job. I have a 9 to 5, and I have evening classes at College, so I have a very limited amount of time on the Wiki, and like I said, you are consuming most of that time at the moment needlessly. I literally don't have the time to keep doing this. That's why I pointed out the quick chat me and Mikey had about the subject, that's how it should be. Not like this.
You don't have to explain every little detail, that's my point. Be quick, get to the point, and solve issues in a quick and civil manner. I'm not discussing opinions and your "proofs" (proof) again, we've done this. Nope, b'crat is the top here.
Look, if you have an issue with an edit of mine, leave me a brief message and I'll explain my reasoning - but don't pick out every little thing because trust me, I know what I'm doing - you can leave a quick response disputing that and we'll solve it quickly. I really don't want to continue to have to discuss this, I didn't insult you, I didn't make it personal, you do have an attitude whether you deny it or not - it could be unintentional but I don't think it is anymore.
As I said, we can't reason with each other. If b'crats are the top here, let's ask the rest of them, what do they think about situation between us. I'll go away no problem if your insults and mockeries are not as obvious for others as I think. If they will say that all those mentions of my name in summaries weren't unappropriate for a staff member, then I'll rethink my standarts of communication.
So please, tell them somehow, or if this is impossible and you're the main authority here, tell me somehow. Then I'll leave, because since we both want what's best for this Wikia, this is impossible for us to work together.
Thank you in advance. Orto Dogge (talk) 22:42, March 15, 2014 (UTC)
It's really not as big an issue as you seem to think. Don't be so dramatic. I have neither insulter nor mocked you, if you genuinely believe I have then that was certainly not my intention.
For the most part you're a good editor, far better than you used to be - based on your previous blocks. I see no reason why you can't just continue to edit as you have been. You just need to listen to what I've said and adapt. Like I said, if you disagree with an edit of mine we can have a quick discussion, in the same manner of the discussion me and Mikey had. For my part I'll try to explain my edits in the edit summary more - something which I've admittedly never really taken to doing. Tom Talk 22:58, March 15, 2014 (UTC)
OK, let's forget it. But please, can you be so kind and, as you call it, drop your attitude with me? As you can see, I just try to make my improvements to this WIkia and they're mostly good. I take GTA and the art of discussion seriously, maybe too seriously, but this is not necessary a bad thing.
I'll keep working on GTA gangs then, if you don't mind. Orto Dogge (talk) 15:57, March 16, 2014 (UTC)

Apartments in GTA Online

  • Or, should we create one page for each apartment?

Unfortunately, I'm rather reluctant to edit GTA V-related pages for now, due to the fact I had to wipe out the memory of my PS3's hard-drive, thus deleting my progress in GTA4, GTA:EFLC, RDR, AC4, MP3 and yeah, GTA V. FUCK...

Anyway, I'll keep an eye on the wiki activity, and edit pages when needed. I'm currently working on Sal Leone's page (kinda disappointed at the beta product [my sandbox], if to be honest).

Re: Missions in GTA IV

This time I made it with similar format and style without table, and make the organize more clearly and correct the right timeline. The version before too messy and hard to use and none of the relationship between missions, this is the reason I changed it, not for nice outlook but the functions. I don't understand why should leave it there with wrong timeline and a mess up layout and call it a style.

I hope you can tell me the reason you don't want to fix any error of that page and leave it be a hard-to-read version?

Gibea (talk) 00:58, March 17, 2014 (UTC)

I hope you try compare with the new version and the chart to understand what's the problem of the old version. With the chart you can found out why I re-arranged the groups and order different than the old version. If you still doesn't understand I can explain detailly about it later.
About the "grammatically correct", it is not a reason to undo whole thing of the new version because others can simply make the correction of the grammar, right? I don't mind other people to do the correct work, I just feel disappointed you give up to do any improvement for that page. Gibea (talk) 20:11, March 17, 2014 (UTC)

Irish-American Killers

Howdy!

Did you see what I made of African-American Gangsters page? I guess you should. Check it please, since I wrote almost everything myself and could make mistakes. But please, if you be so kind, don't delete too much: it's very fresh and I'm still very sensitive to this page.

Anyway, I want to do the same with Irish-American Killers. The problem is, McReary Family and Irish-American Killers still are not considered as the one gang. I don't want to delete McReary crime family page, since it can be the same as North Holland Hustlers one, like a set of the biggest gang, but I want to write the full story of Irish-Americans criminals on Irish-American Killers page. If you're interested, please notice, that Patrick McReary and Gerald McReary affiliated by Police database with Irish-American Criminals (with capital letters) so it's safe to say that they're all the one big affiliation of gangs (just like African-Americans and Jamaicans).

Gangs

Actually, EVERY gang in GTA IV is loose affiliation of different ethnic gangs, which appear to be rivals and allies. It's the same for Irish, Russians, Jamaican, Italians and others, with the exeption for bikers. All the same. Members of the gangs are not necessary MEMBERS of the gang: they can be just ethnic criminals.

So the point is, that Irish gangsters just need a common designation. And CW gave it to us: Irish-American Killers. McReary crime family obviously operates inside Irish-American Criminals community. When I'll be writing about History of Irish-American Killers, I'll mention, that some time before those neighborhoods belonged to McRearies, than McRearies' influence was weakened, than, in 2009, they seems to be wiped out as a gang.

Actually, it's silly to say, that one gang transformed to another. It was always just one big community or ethnic criminals and it deserves its own page. By the way, who told you, that Irish criminals on the streets of GTA IV belong to McReary crime family?

About Jamaicans. They seem to be rivals for me too, that's why I actually mentioned it on the page. But after the mission "Shadow" all Jamaicans become friendly to Niko, so I think, that Badman and Jacob still have more influence, that other yardies. And, as I said before, every gang in game divided in independent sets, which can be allies and rivals with each other. It's just the way it is.

About Northwood and Dominicans. Dwayne was mentioned to have territories in Northwood and Playboy X was mentioned only as the head of North Holland distribution. At the same time, we see the gang called Northwood Dominican Drug Dealers. I didn't say exactly, that Dominicans came and took over. I just said, that during the long period of time Playboy X lost influence and Dominicans took over the hood. Because Playboy X had empire with influence in Northwood, but after some time didn't have influence in Northwood. I guess we can say, that he lost it.

Thanks for grammar corrections on Hustlers' page, by the way, it's much appreciated! Orto Dogge (talk) 10:43, March 23, 2014 (UTC)

Question

Originally posted to LS11sVaultBoy: Hello, just asking what do you think about this? I made the DLC vehicle links color coded to make it easier to see what DLC pack they appeared in (done the same with GTA V weapons). I know I said "Feel free to undo the edit if it's not necessary" but I was hoping that a staff member would undo it instead of some random guy who didn't even give a proper reason (or any reason at all). Anyway, just asking for your opinion on the color coded links (feel free to undo the weapons and keep vehicles as it is if there's no need for that) V-michael-trunk-miniV-franklin-trunk-miniV-trevor-trunk-mini 18:48, March 23, 2014 (UTC)

I found that Niko isn't Serbian. Before I get to what race he is I would like to tell you that the Bosnia is a country where Serbs and Croats are mixed in and Serbia decided to pull genocide on the Bosnian-Croats This is what started the Bosnian War. Soon, Croatia found what Serbia was doing. So Croatia decided to Jump in the war to help the Bosnian-Croats. I found out that Niko is Croatian. His name is probably Niko Bellic instead of Nikola Belic because he is speaking Serb-Croat; A language that is mixed with Serbian and Croatian. He probably isn't pronouncing things wrong; that's just his language. Also, Serbs torture Bosnian-Croats and Croatians a lot. They do it by (for example) hanging babies, shooting kids in the head, and cutting off body parts. I mentioned that last part because I remember in one Rigged to Blow, he was talking to Mikhail Faustin's wife saying he went by a church where kids hands' were cut off. Also in Russian Revolution, Dimitri says "And you used to work in the Mediterranean smuggling people into Italy. Serbia is land locked which means in is guarded all around and if someone does escape, they would kill the escapers' family. Croatia on the other hand, is not land locked. I know all this because I live in Slovenia. (It's right next to Croatia.) So that's why I'm pretty sure Niko is Croatian.

What mission did tracy say she's 22?

Irish-American Killers

Answer me two questions please.

First, why do player have to kill members of McReary family on orders from another member of McReary family in the mission Smackdown?

Second, why members of McReary family work with Pavanos in the mission Payback (GTA IV), when they known Pegorino's associates?

Orto Dogge (talk) 17:40, April 1, 2014 (UTC)

So you're saying that there are some other Irish-American criminals, who are not members of McReary crime family, right? So may be we need article for them? Orto Dogge (talk) 18:07, April 1, 2014 (UTC)
Thank you very much, Tom, it really means a lot!
Your good words inspired me very much. So please, read what I'll write below, because it's really important to me. I hope we'll manage to find compromise.
So, I consider every gang's name in CW as designation. The Mob, Yardies, African-Americans and Irish-American Killers are not the gangs. They are designations for ethnic groups of criminals.
That's exactly what I try to do with gangs pages. Put them in realistic and not linear way they are meant to be. That's why I am so touchy about names and designations.
McReary Family and Irish-American Killers are not the same gang, obviously. Because Irish-American Killers are not the gang. It's just the common name for all Irish-American criminals in Liberty City, given by Rockstar. Every member of McReary family is Irish-American and somehow a killer, so you can see, what I mean.
So I'm not trying to write an article about some specific Irish-American Killers from CW. I'm trying to write an article about ethnic Irish-American criminal underworld in Liberty City. Because it's worth noticing, that Pavanos work with Irish bookeys in Alderney, for example. And how I supposed to name this article? The way I see it, "Irish-American Killers" is the best name, since it's official. Rockstar already did this work for me.
So this is just a misunderstanding between us. I'm just SO into GTA gangs right now, you know. That's why we see this thing from the different angles. Now, when I explained myself, I hope we'll understand each other.
Anyway, thanks for your attention. Orto Dogge (talk) 18:59, April 1, 2014 (UTC)
So? Orto Dogge (talk) 09:00, April 3, 2014 (UTC)
Okay, so I want to write artice about Irish-Americans, because that's the only gang from the game files, that doesn't have its own page. I can't ignore it, because they appear in few storyline missions and very often appear n the side missions. How should I name this page? Irish-American Criminals? It's GTA IV thing.
I still think, that Irish-American Killers is the designation, because every gang name from CW was a designation. Except "Angels of Death", of course.

Cars in GTA V page

Hey Tom,

Just wanted to fill you in on why this page was put up. We've been looking at some of the most commonly used search terms, and the vast majority of people searching use "GTA V cars" instead of "GTA V vehicles". In order to help the Wiki increase its presence in search results for cars and vehicles, adding this page would be extremely helpful since it contains the necessary search term in the URL. It's a dumb technicality that repeats some of the existing information, but such is the way of search engine parsing.

Just wanted to run it buy you and a few of the other admins to see if you're okay with it. If not, that's fine.

Thanks!

So it would obviously be appropriate to note on this wiki that a building is in a separate category of it's own. This is a widely accepted fact outside of this wiki and should absolutely used to break up the crowded "skyscraper" category. So can I restore them? Do you want the category to be "Super-Tall skyscrapers" instead? Sasquatch101 (talk) 05:30, April 17, 2014 (UTC)

Aren't they actually called "high-rises", not "super-talls"? Just sayin'.

Skyscrapers or High Rises are the same thing, though skyscraper is the more technical term. Sasquatch101 (talk) 01:43, April 19, 2014 (UTC)
Tom, I'll change the category to the proper term "Supertall Skyscrapers". According to the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat, Supertalls cover anything taller than 300 meters, or 984 feet. http://www.popsci.com/technology/article/2013-02/rise-supertalls

Bahama Mamas

I was told to contact a member of this Wiki's staff to explain something I found in GTA IV TBoGT.

Me and my friend were playing the Playstation 3 TBoGT's multiplayer one day a while ago and went into Bahama Mamas to hide out from a player in an APC. I got bored and started to look around and looked at this TV http://imgur.com/MulcAL1 (sorry in advance for the low quality, but I don't have a better camera near me), if you zoom in from where I was standing you see this http://imgur.com/mKi9gNE (You can see it from the area I am in game but my camera is low res). I think it looks like a face, and after looking at it and my friend have decided it's probably a picture that was taken near a Gas Station in game but it could be a developer that added his picture in as an easter egg.

I noticed this because when I was looking at the TV from here with a sniper http://imgur.com/PYO9B3Y and noticed that it looked different to what I was seeing zoomed in. So I noticed that if you're not far away you just see this when you zoom in on the TV http://imgur.com/1CMh5f3 . I used to think the dancers were twisting their bodies in really disturbing ways but looking at it now it's probably just because the TV is low res. That said, I still don't know why the orange tinted face picture is overlayed against it

And here's one more picture, showing how the evil looking face guy picture disapears if you get too close to the TV http://imgur.com/4Ld2kEt

I understand if you don't believe me, but if you want you can go to Bahama Mamas yourself and look. It's also why I  decided to tell someone about it now, as I can't get into bahama mamas in Single Player and I heard the Multiplayer servers are going down soon. Although on a PC you could probably get inside with a trainer Desacabose (Talk) 16:05, April 22, 2014 (UTC)

Custom user right next to user's name

Hi, Tom. It me again. Have you idea how you add a custom user right text next to your name like your "Bureaucrat" and "Patroller" I am promoted today as bureaucrat at Counter-Strike wiki and I want to make a big changes there. And I want it appear as a "Bureaucrat' and "Rollback". It just a question.--Yong Feng (Reply←→Edits) 15:30, April 23, 2014 (UTC)

Sadler

Hey The Tom. Why did you remove DocVinewood's picture of the Sadler? I see nothing wrong with it. I can clearly understand his Sandking picture, as it looks like a modified Sandking, but I don't see nothing wrong with his picture of the Sadler. Plus both pages are in need of better quality images. Please get back to me. Smashbro8-Sig-pt1 (Smashbro8-Sig-pt2) 19:07, April 24, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

Okay. Let me know when you contact wikia because currently I am editing on the Midnight Club Wiki and two of my pictures I uploaded appear a bit stretched. I'm going to check all the other wikis I edit on for the same problem. Smashbro8-Sig-pt1 (Smashbro8-Sig-pt2) 21:15, April 24, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

Hi, I just wanted to say that the Sandking pic I uploaded is not a modified one, is just a white and red standard Sandking. You can remove it if you want, I just thought it was better than the previous one. I hope this glitch is solved soon, it has happened the same with other images recently uploaded, like the one in the Rooftop Rumble page. DocVinewood (talk) 21:22, April 24, 2014 (UTC)

Images

Hello, Tom. As you have seen, there are a few images on this wiki that have been glitched. DocVinewood's images are all blurry and compressed for some reason. However, this has not just been affecting Doc. Other images are being glitched, such as the picture of the Dominator. I believe we should tell wikia. Carl Johnson Jr. (talk) 19:12, April 24, 2014 (UTC)

Him again

Tom, that asshole Joshua is back, please get rid of him, I cannot take the stress of that past event again, please get him banned from this site okay :( Cloudkit01 (talk) 02:49, April 30, 2014 (UTC)

Hey The Tom. After an hour of several users trying to block Joshua as Cloudkit stated, Boomer8 noticed the issue and reported it to Wikia. Wikia blocked him for two weeks and Dodo8 changed the settings to infinite. Anyway, I wanted to ask you if a staff meeting could be arranged (even if I don't get to take part in it) or another election for an administrator who can be awake around late night and early morning where vandals attack. After what me, Cloudkit, and many other users had to go through last night, this has to be prevented. This was the worst vandal attack I have ever seen on this wiki and on a Wikia wiki period. Please reply back to me. Thank You. Smashbro8-Sig-pt1 (Smashbro8-Sig-pt2) 15:32, April 30, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

Hey The Tom. He's blocked for infinite. I believe though there should be an admin to watch the wiki late at night and early morning where vandals attack so that even if Joshua does return, it is one press of a button to block him for infinite instead of going through that crisis. To be honest, if Boomer8 did not spot the situation and report him to Wikia, Joshua would've ruined the wiki with his inappropriate pages and pics. You never know who could've been reading the wiki during Joshua's attack. Before another crisis like this happens, another patroller should be promoted or a an admin should be sent to patrol the wiki at these times. However, it is up to you. I personally feel a staff meeting should be arranged so we can find out how to handle vandal attacks at night when me and Cloudkit are still editing the wiki. Also, don't forget to leave me a vote on the Requests for Promotion page. Smashbro8-Sig-pt1 (Smashbro8-Sig-pt2) 17:05, April 30, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

Hey Tom. Could you vote on my request at GTA Wiki:Requests for Promotion. Thank you. Sasquatch101 (talk) 22:15, May 1, 2014 (UTC)

WHAT THE ****

Why did you delete my request? The admin limit was put up for community vote six months ago and the community said 8 was too much but adding 2 or at least one was a good idea. This was never brought up again and has been treated as a de facto by the staff and community. This is ridiculous! I have put so much effort, time and work into this and for you to just click a button and say screw you is outragous! Why do you hate me??? I have done nothing to you and just want to secure the wiki from attcks that can not be prevented by the current set up. Please put it back up. Sasquatch101 (talk) 23:20, May 1, 2014 (UTC)


Tom, please reconsider. Why can't there be one more admin? Can we vote on that? Please look at it from my point of view. The only people with blocking power that can protect the wiki are not active in the time zone where this vandal is. Boomer said he is a senior vandal so what would stop his from doing that all over again. The wiki had six admins at one time, there is nothing wrong with that. Please... Sasquatch101 (talk) 23:28, May 1, 2014 (UTC)

I know that vote on community central did not pass, however there were a number of staff that were in agreement that adding 2 or 1 admins wasn't a bad idea. It was not officially passed but staff then, and definitely now would agree another admin would be good for the wiki. I am not trying to insult you, I'm just stating what I know. Sasquatch101 (talk) 23:33, May 1, 2014 (UTC)

RE

After cooling off a little bit I see your point. Rules are rules and they have to be followed otherwise it isn't fair. I suppose I misinterpreted the true voting results from the noticeboard decision a few months ago. So I would like to put up for community vote a resolution to raise the admin limit from 5 to 6. My reason for wanting to be promoted isn't just to protect the wiki during the off time, I feel that I can be of greater assistance in improving pages that are locked. Also I have gotten better with templates so I could update the home page if anyone wants me to. I can handle the responsibilities that come with being an admin. Sasquatch101 (talk) 01:51, May 2, 2014 (UTC)

If we were to have another community vote for a patroller being promoted to admin, then we better follow McJeff's voting formula. Y'all remember, nominate patrollers who have the administrator potentials, ask them admin-related questions via email, showcase the answered responses on a page to which all of the GTA Wiki community could see, and then let them decide whom to vote. Sounds a much simpler process after going through it at the last promotion board and in my opinion, I like it that way. Less likely to cause disputes because ALL of the patrollers vie for the spot.

RE:

Me, Sasquatch, Smashbro, Cloudkit and countless other users had to see the most vile pornographic images; so yeah, I will retire if that would to continue. And if there was an admin currently active at that time, the vandal wouldn't have been able to upload that many images. Boomer8 (talk) 04:00, May 3, 2014 (UTC)

Honest opinion

You should just delete that entire thread about adding an extra administrator. If I hadn't resigned as a bureaucrat that's exactly what I'd do. It's really a decision that should be made between you, Messi and Ilan, not a bunch of kids who've been told time and again not to get hysterical over vandalism and who never ever listen.

Also you might consider disciplinary action against Boomer8. Specifically a request for demotion. He's been warned for incivility, throwing tantrums and badmouthing the bureaucrats before, and yet here he does it all and threatens to take his ball and go home for good measure [1]. Jeff (talk·stalk) 06:52, May 3, 2014 (UTC)

Not the first time with Boomer. Back last summer I gave him an official warning [2] for badmouthing the bureaucrats to another user [3]. Jeff (talk·stalk) 16:17, May 3, 2014 (UTC)

Temporary repromotion

Tom I was thinking. When I had problems with a leverberg-style vandal over on Bully Wiki, I asked Wikia for help and they installed abuse filters. I then tweaked the abuse filters so they'd just outright block vandals instead of politely asking the vandals to please reconsider. You have to be an administrator to mess with abuse filters. If you'd promote me back to bureaucrat, with the understanding that 1) I will take no administrative action aside from the abuse filters, 2) that I promise to demote myself as soon as the job is done, I think I could get the wiki to where it will automatically block some vandals so it doesn't matter if the wiki is unattended for a while. Jeff (talk·stalk) 16:44, May 3, 2014 (UTC)

I've contacted wikia to request that they install the filters. But since it's Saturday it might be a while before they respond since they take the weekends off. Jeff (talk·stalk) 18:14, May 3, 2014 (UTC)

I knew you would do this

The COMMUNITY noticeboard voted, 5 Yes, 0 no. The motion was going to pass however you vindictively took it down. I don't get it. If you want to unilaterally run the wiki this wiki then why have a noticeboad or promotion request. Just be up front so myself and other users don't waste our time because you clearly think you are better then everyone else. Jeff's offensive comments, mixed with your actions show how this wiki ran with back door conversations. You make up the rules as you go along. You guys must be a bunch of frat boys that love to feel so inpowered. You can't take citicism because you know very well what you are doing. Sasquatch101 (talk) 20:38, May 3, 2014 (UTC)

The thing about that noticeboard post being deleted, it's up for the bureaucrats to decide which is best or not for that idea. We've ran through this same idea last year and looked what happened: Certain patrollers going on a tirade spree with other staff members and getting blocked. I think that is the reason why the bureaucrats will not raise the admin limit and to tell you the truth, I agree with them for doing this.
--Tony1998 (Talker * Blogger * Stalker)-- 20:45, May 3, 2014 (UTC) 
I don't agree with you at all. I don't agree with unilateral decisions being made when it affects other users. Sasquatch101 (talk) 20:57, May 3, 2014 (UTC)
Hey Sasquatch101. Just cool off. I don't agree with it either but we just gotta get over it. In life we have to get over things. Tom is right. Even if an admin was up at night with us, we can't prevent vandals from coming here every now and then to attack the wiki. That's just how it is.

GTA Songs Wiki

Hello, Tom. So after we have recently removed GTA Myth Wiki from our Affiliates list, I just realized. Why isn't GTA Songs Wiki (made by Thomas) on that list? It seems to be maintained and active, and Thomas is also its founder. Perhaps it could take up a spot on the Affiliates list. That's just my suggestion. Carl Johnson Jr. (talk) 01:58, May 4, 2014 (UTC)

Boomer8 still going.

[4] I can't decide whether it would be worth it to demote him or not, but since we've been warning him since 2013 about this badmouthing the bureaucrats and throwing fits every time a decision he doesn't like is made, I think he should at the very least get a very sternly worded formal warning about civility. Jeff (talk·stalk) 03:19, May 4, 2014 (UTC)

Split

Hello Tom. It has come to my attention recently that there has been a fiasco between this Wiki's staff and Sasquatch101 and Boomer8, both of whom are Administrators on the GTA Myths Wikia. After some discussion, we decided that it would be viable to cut ties with one another. Most steps have already been taken, ie removing eachother's logos. In no way are we trying to become 'rvials', such as with the GTA V Wiki crisis a few months ago.

Now, onto the more important part: info. Both of our wikis have borrowed information from eachother - so, do we respect copyright or remove it, which could be detrimental, as some pages that are nothing but "copied" information. --CommunistOverlordJim

Hey

Damn, this stiuation has escalated quickly... I'm off for one day or so and only then shit hit the fan...

Anyway, let me get to it right now: "What I think on the subject?" Well, I think you're right. Now, this doesn't mean I think Sasquatch is a monster or something. I understand his and Boomer's frustration over what happened with the vandal - I had a similar situation, where I feel helpless and nothing I do can stop this mess.

But, while Sas is (or rather, "was") a good editor with many good edits, he is also short-tempered. VERY short-tempered, and while I believe he has the right to say "you're wrong - I don't agree with what you said", this is not an excuse for insulting and flaming you, and there's a price for saying such things.

Man, being an admin on GTA Wiki is suffering, don't you agree? I'll protect this wiki as long as possible, with everything I have. Unfortunately, most people don't understand that adminship is not just "warn and block other users"...

Damn, I'm not sure what I'm trying to explain. Hell, my thoughts are not even clear, due to "reasons".

But, to cut a long story short - you did the right thing. Sasquatch had good intentions for the Wiki, but in the end he has became the very thing he was fighting against - that's how I see it. Good edits or not, you also need the right behaviour if you wish to become an admin, and Sas has his history of misbehaving.

Also, you wouldn't mind if I'll lock the RfP page, would you? If someone would like to write a Patrollership request, we can direct him to one of our talk pages and discuss with the others. This whole 'race for adminship' has gone too far, with the motivation being "more power, higher status", and not "having a greater ability to protect the Wiki and its users". Currently no one out of the active Patrollers deserve admin rights, that's what I think.

Well that's (almost) all I had to say on the subject. Sorry if I'm not that straightforward with my message, but there are several other things I need to do before I can move to this one with a clear mind and opinion.

-- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 08:54, May 5, 2014 (UTC)

I'll talk to Boomer. I, too, hate to lose another Patroller to this mess of situation. He has his fair share of good edits, but his behavior is a bit problematic. Still, he's younger than us both, and as I've discovered only a few days ago, the view of a 14-15 year old is different than a 17-19 year old - something I've learned after rewatching a show I first watched two-three years ago. By the way, happy birthday - I see you've changed your age to 19 :)
Being a b'crat is even more suffering... To be fair, you handle democracy far better than most countries in the world (including Israel). Have you ever considered starting a political career? ;P
As for the filter, yeah, seen it and support it. Man, I'm glad Jeff is still here to help us. He has a great understanding in the pros and cons of being a b'crat.

Abuse Filters are up, and other stuff

If they turn out not to be working, my suggestion is to contact Wikia for help and ask them if they can get one of their tech guys on it.

I blocked Boomer. I'm sorry, I know I shouldn't have, but he's just determined to spam his "all the GTA Wiki Bureaucrats are stupid and corrupt" shit everywhere he gets a chance. Since it was his third offense, I blocked him for a month (talk page access disabled).

If anyone else who might have sympathized with some of his views wonders, what's going on on GTA Myths Wiki is exactly why the bureaucrats have to keep a close hand on who gets promoted. It's to keep the likes of Sasquatch and Boomer from opening the floodgates, voting each other into promotions and swamping the wiki with a bunch of incompetent administrators and bureaucrats who don't know what they're doing.

If the guys over on Myths Wiki keep badmouthing and flaming you and this wiki, you could always contact Wikia Central about it and see if they'll do anything. It's unlikely they'd do more than warn him, but since right now he thinks he's in the right a warning might help.

Lastly, I've demoted myself from bureaucrat per our agreement now that the filters are up. Jeff (talk·stalk) 08:05, May 6, 2014 (UTC)

I was editing the "Serbia" page to "Yugoslavia" and there's no place to edit the title. It's kind of annoying because I spent 15 minutes editing it and it still says "Serbia" :) Can you tell me how to edit it or, if titles are blocked for regular users you can edit it? Also can the url be edited from saying Serbia to Yugoslavia? In case you are wondering why I edited it, is because I remember having a conversation with you with me saying that Niko is Croatian and you said "We don't know what nationality he is, we only know he's from Yugoslavia" or something similar to that and the page had a lot of references to Niko being Serbian.

I think you should block him. He got in a fight with Sasquatch101 over on GTA Myths Wiki because he didn't want to follow the rules. He's using Sasquatch's block on this wiki as ammunition for the dispute, and harassing him over here where he can't fight back. He's also admitted to sharing his account with a friend which is against the rules, he's put stuff on his user talk page that has no business being there (like Sasquatch's infoboxes), and he just generally turns everything he can into a fight.

User copying all of my stuff

Tom, I saw this idiot copying all of my stuff off my userpage on to his talkpage, he needs to be blocked for copying the staff's stuff off their userpage, he might be that 22 user who copied everything off your userpage for payback that I reported him to Mikey or ATom a year ago.

Watch Dogs

'sup bro?

Do you plan on getting the game? -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 15:06, May 23, 2014 (UTC)

I dunno. I like open-world games, but... yeah, I'm not sure 'bout this one. As for a next-gen console, yep, I need one too. What do you prefer, XBONE or PS4? -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 15:43, May 23, 2014 (UTC)
OK, as for Watch Dogs: I actually like the tech side of the gameplay. It kinda makes the whole more "sophisticated" compare to other open-world games, where the player "kills everyone in front of you" (though I do prefer this way - more fun). Well, at least on the paper. The previews showed some high potential, though this is the feature that can make or break the game.
As for the consoles, I'm not sure either; I'm pretty neutral, though I might get a PS4 since I had a PS3 in the previous console war. I really don't like that "pay for multiplayer" thing - if I pay $60 for a game, I expect to get the WHOLE game (discounting all that content cut off from games so it'll be released as DLC in the future), and that includes the multiplayer mode. Interestingly, this time Microsoft has a strong line of exclusives, which is a step-up from its 360, when they only had Halo/Gears/Forza/Fable as their exclusive franchises. Sony always had a strong line of exclusives, though those bastard reviewers ass-kicked Killzone "4" and InFamous "3"... Maybe we should just get Wii Us...
-- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 16:49, May 23, 2014 (UTC)
And then, the twist! The gunplay & driving mechanics suck! XD
For both. Why? 'cos Sony and Microsoft are bloody, cash-hungry bastards!
A few days ago they announced the next Halo game, "Halo 5: Guardians". Uncharted "4" will be presented during E3. I hope to see some footage from "The Order: 1886", too. As for AC5, I have that fear that we'll get yet another boring protagonist like Connor...
Mario Kart 8... best karting game of the year! (because it is the only one...). The console does get some amazing games. Shame Bayonetta 2 is a Wii U-exclusive... ;(
-- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 13:22, May 24, 2014 (UTC)
And... Watch Dogs is in my possession. Yet to play it, though. -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 18:55, May 26, 2014 (UTC)
'sup bro. Played Watch_Dogs and I'm halfway through the story. Have you played it yet? -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 17:34, May 28, 2014 (UTC)

I personally think it's a very good game, probably somewhere around the 8.5/10 in my book. The story is your regualr revenge plot, and although the story is inconsistent at times, Aiden's adventure is very enjoyable. Aiden himself, however, is... pretty bland; it simply feels he is a badass just for the sake of being badass. I don't mind about the visuals; this whole "graphics downgrade" thing never really bothered me, though this game is far from being "next-gen" by looks. While the driving mechanics are rather subpar, I really enjoyed the shooting and hacking mechanics, it makes the gunfights much more fun. The mission structure is awesome, too, as it is possible to choose whether you use stealth, or the typical TPS action. I'm currently at the end of Act 3.

You know, on the whole, I'd say this is the kind of game you don't play for story or characters, just for some balls-to-the-walls, batshit insane action, with the action just getting bigger and bigger. Watch Dogs is really like GTA and Assassin's Creed had sex while smoking or injecting something. I bet the final mission will be something insane (if you've finished the game, don't tell me). -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 12:51, May 29, 2014 (UTC)

I've finished the story missions and now clearing the side-missions. In my opinion this is a very good game, perhaps even great. The story is solid, but unfortunately suffers from cliches ad bland protagonist. I mean,sure both the story and Aiden have their moments, but there are other games that have done these much better. I don't own Sleeping Dogs, but I've played it. Maybe I should buy it...
While Watch Dogs is the best fun I've had this year so far, it feels that the game lacks some polish, despite the fact it was delayed for half a year. It's a generally great game with some fine ideas and tons of content, but after the final mission, it leaves something to be desired. I think the main problem is Ubisoft's own ambitions; they want that every major IP they own will become a franchise, and obviously Watch Dogs suffers from that. A solid stepping stone to a great franchise, who will probably be forgotten after the potential releases of its sequels. It also directly attempts to compete with the GTA franchise, leading to many people comparingbetween the two, and that really doesn't help WD's case... -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 06:59, May 31, 2014 (UTC)
Rockstar well-raised the bar for sandbox games with GTA4, RDR, and LA Noire; GTA4 is the most realistic and lively game I've ever seen, and even though I understand why many fans hate it, I'll continue to love it for the rest of my life; RDR was one of the first examples that Rockstar could create different sandbox games other than their typical crime-drama; and LA Noire, well it wasn't the best "open"-world game, but really felt like the anti-GTA game. GTAV was amazing, but I do have to admit that it was Rockstar's best by an inch and not a mile.
Well, I guess I'll get Sleeping Dogs. I like the emphasis on melee combat and story.
Saints Row 2 had the right balance with silliness and seriousness, hen SR3 came out and pissed all over it. SR4 was even more over-the-top, but it's okay. It had both sharp-writing and fun gameplay. Watch Dogs is also a very silly game that is fun to dick around in, but it can't balance it's silly moments with serious moments... announcing that their potential new franchise will compete against the king of sandbox games (that can also balance out very nicely between tones) is not Ubisoft's very cleverest idea. With that said, Ubisoft is known ofr fixing most of their games' problems in their sequels (AC1 -> AC2; Far Cry 2 -> FC3). -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 12:03, June 4, 2014 (UTC)

Niko, Misty, and Claude Now

I found some pictures of Niko, Misty, and Claude that were pulled out of Grand Theft Auto Online. You can see how they look in a better way and I was wondering if I could replace their pictures on their page with these: nikobellic-now.png, Mistynow.png, Claude_speed.png. You can find these pictures by typing that up on this wiki. Also, the picture that says "Claude_speed.png", it doesn't mean Claude from Grand Theft Auto 2, it's just that whoever made the picture probably thought that Claude Speed and Claude are the same person (even though they probably are).  

After this "crisis"

Sasquatch's at it again, but he's brought his anger to the Myths Wiki. He is being incredibly disrespectful to me and other users and had has started a 'clique' with Boomer that is rollbacking edits and blocking users who disagree with them (which is pretty ironic, considering that when you do it, it's bad.) So yeah, I'm thinking of relingushing my staff abilities there and just editing here - so what can I do to help? --Gunshow2

Hey The Tom. I know this may be a hard decision, but can I be promoted to an admin for a day or two so I can help you all delete the Russian videos while y'all are unavailable? I mean all I would need is the delete tool and the link to the videos so I can delete all of his unneccessary videos.

E3 2014 Video

Hi, The Tom!

We've got our hands on the E3 2014 trailer for Grand Theft Auto V. It looks like you guys have a system in place for viewing and making detailed notes about trailers and such, so I didn't want to just throw it onto the page. Figured I'd hand it off so you could take a gander at it and figure the best plan for it ;)

Hey The Tom. Can you issue this user a block. I mean he has three warnings from me, you and, Cloudkit01, yet he continues to vandalize our radio station pages.

Yes, he called me a "naive moderator" and removed everything about the Coach in GTA IV because I believed his pictures were fake. Also, if you are ready to give me the rights, just give me the link to all of his videos. Smashbro8-Sig-pt1 (Smashbro8-Sig-pt2) 14:33, June 14, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

I thought this website was about contribution and community! let me be clear. CLOUDKIT01 never once even attempted to respond or communicate with me AT ALL.

this encapsulates what i'm talking about:

Attitude towards Users

Hey Cloudkit. You need to start replying to your messages, even if they aren't necessary. Being a staff member isn't all about who makes the most edits here, it's about being civil and helpful to others. You gotta change that cause that's not how staff are supposed to operate. Now another user asked you a question, which you could at least have responded saying why you reverted his edit, because he needs to know what he did wrong before he does it again and gets blocked. You have to remember, you a staff member and as staff members we should be civil and helpful towards other users...unless they cause a little too much trouble (vandalism). [3] ([4]) 23:25, May 20, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

Security Guard's name

Hey there Smashbro. I know we haven't really talked much in the past, but I just wanted to clear up this little disagreement going on here about the guard's name. His name is Jaspers, if you watch the gameplay video for the Prologue mission, his nametag can be clearly seen a few instances. You can see it when he emerges from behind the wall to take Michael at gunpoint, and then you can see it even closer after he pulls Michael's mask off. His name is undoubtedly Jaspers. RageQuit Talk 22:04, June 26, 2014 (UTC)

Police Station edits

Hello, my name is 06abrahb and I am an admin on the Left 4 Dead and the Walking Dead wikis, and I have some concerns that I would like to be brought to your attention. As you may have noticed, I spend a great deal of time and effort editing the law enforcement pages here on this wiki, the LSPD, LSSD, LCPD, NOOSE, etc... I am very passionate about those pages especially the police station pages and I want them looking as best as they can whether editing the text or finding images for them. My concerns are that recently, users have edited the pages and have greatly reduced the work and effort that was put in to all the LSPD police station pages which has resulted in inferior article presentations. They have reduced the image sizes, removed sentences and wording about some facts, as well as replaced beautiful images with old reused map pictures. I am not new to wikis and I know how these things work which is why I made the images large and different, so that when people go to these pages, they can see a nice big view of the police station and the details about it, not a small little 250px size you can barely see where a map is displayed. You can clearly see the difference between the articles when viewing the editing history. The map is already displayed and used on the main LSPD police page and I don't want to keep reusing the same image over and over again. Can you please look into this and resolve these issues as this has become increasingly frustrating for me. Thank you so much for your time and efforts! --06abrahb (talk) 00:15, July 3, 2014 (UTC)

I need some help

Hello Tom! Unsurprisingly, Sasquatch101 and Boomer8 are mad again. Here's the backstory: Boomer8 bans a user just because he ranked over him in the leaderboards, and a user named TheAverageAnarchist tells Boomer, well, he blocked him because of his leaderboard rank. Boomer8 blocks TAA, but I unblock him. TAA created a demotion request for Boomer8 [1] , and it was very succesful - 8 yes votes, and 0 nos within 3 hours. I decided that the vote would pass no matter what and was about to finalise it. However, when I was going to Boomer's profile, Sasquatch got very megalomanaical and started defending him ridiculously - he suspended my Bureaucrat abilties, blocked every non-staff user that voted for "incivility" and blocked TheAverageAnarchist for a month just for "starting a feud with Boomer."

UPDATE: I unblocked all the affected users and McJeff stepped in.

I don't think you need to be involved - Sas has caled you a 'frat boy' way too much, but I'd just like some advice on how to deal with this situation. -- Gunshow2 (Talk + Stalk)

Mission Templates

Hello,

I just finished working on a missions template (currently a test) and I would like to ask you for an advice about it.

These templates will only contain all story missions (I can add side-missions too) in order of their character's mission strand appearance. If there are multiple mission strands, they will be separated by "Part 1", "Part 2", "Part 3", etc.

Curently, I have only done one for Vice City and here's an example of it. Note: The colors may be a bit of an eyesore at the moment.

So, is this a good idea? Are there any changes you would like to add? Should I make the colors for each template have a theme color like all GTA's do or keep the default GTA WIki color or keep and change some colors? Should Side Missions be included?

Other admins and patrollers are welcome to add their opinions as well.

Thanks :) I just finished the templates for 3D Era games (minus Advance). I changed the Vice City's pink to a bit darker shade, but then I changed the colors (III's too) to their 10th Anniversary colors. Original VC template (with the slightly darker pink) was reused for VCS.

Personally, I'm not a fan of SA's and VCS' colors. We've never really been given a specific color for SA, so I used (and slightly modified) the colors from one of the San Andreas templates. I might use the colors of SA's mobile release though, if I recall correctly, it didn't have any color neither. VCS, well I originally used it for VC but it kinda looks bad after staring into it for a while and it still looks way too bright - might change that too, once I'll get other templates done.

Probably gonna change LCS too, but will leave it as it is for now.

EDIT: Finished one for IV, TLAD, TBogT and V and also did strangers and freaks

I had to edit Template:Navbox to add on 5 more spaces since I ran out of them when making an infobox for IV. Hope you don't mind. I didn't break anything though.

I also made a typo in IV's title. Could this be renamed from Template:Gtaiv misions to Template:Gtaiv missions?

Apologies for the very late reply, didn't have much time to do a lot. Thank you for renaming the IV mission template. I have finished GTA III's template so I posted it in all GTA III missions. I should be have the other templates finished soon enough.

RE:

He removed valid information I also added. After I rollbacked his edit, he removed it again. I suppose he understands why he's blocked.Dodo8 Talk 09:54, August 11, 2014 (UTC)

I didn't say that's Bigfoot, I said it's a Bigfoot-like creature. So it was an assumption, no reason to be removed. I admit, I was a little harsh with the user though. My bad. :( Dodo8 Talk 18:05, August 11, 2014 (UTC)

Unnamed Security Guard

This character's name has be known for a long time, shouldn't the page be renamed? Leo68 (talk) 11:09, August 12, 2014 (UTC)

Claude Speed is Claude?

You might have seen this before but here's some proof that Claude Speed might be Claude. I found this on the "Which GTA Character Are You?" page that was even made by Rockstar games. I think it doesn't show his last name on his files because Rockstar has never done that with any of the other protagonist files either. For example: it doesn't state "Bellic" on Niko's files or "Kibbutz" for Brucie's. I think they are the same character. What do you think?

Promotion board

Hate to do this but could you take a look at the Requests for Promotion board? I started a Demotion request against AK-28 and introduced new information into RageQuit's request for promotion. Jeff (talk·stalk) 08:54, August 17, 2014 (UTC)

AK-28 will stand down, and given the reaction of the community, RageQuit might not make patroller, but we are now a patroller short, so I was going to reccomend we launch a community post, and then pick the best looking candidate. Leo68 (talk) 22:29, August 17, 2014 (UTC)

Worth a thousand words...

Can you help me with the images I added (all of them) at this page.

If yes, thanks in advance.

Abuse filter

I should you that Wikia Staff edited the filter so it doesn't actually do anything anymore as you can see by the message one of them left on my talk page. Not that I'm capable of changing it back now that I'm not an administrator anymore anyhow. Jeff (talk·stalk) 19:19, August 18, 2014 (UTC)

I need a serious help

Can you please to talk to this Leigh Burne because he kept on vandalising my profile by mentioning "my edits had nothing to do with anything with the article,I make no sense in any of edits in any articles" he kept on messing my profile page and he didn't stop his mistakeSean.drew.535i (talk) 10:37, August 19, 2014 (UTC)

Serious help

Hi The Tom,can you please talk to this Leigh Burne please he kept on messing up my profile page by mentioning "My edits are useless,they make no sense with the article" can you really please brutally talk to him?He kept repeating his mistake by doing that Thanks.Sean.drew.535i (talk) 10:39, August 19, 2014 (UTC)

Abusive user

I was just about to report User:Sean.drew.535i to you, but I see he's already left a message above. I hate to be a tattletale, but he is once again being incredibly rude to me, insulting me and being generally abusive. He's been warned about this behaviour numerous times and you yourself recently blocked him for it. I leave any response to you, but I'm getting fed up of finding his abusive messages on my talk page and I wanted to bring it to your attention. I can also see from his messages above he is making up flat-out lies about me — I never said his edits were "useless" and I explained my reasons for reverting his changes, as you will be able to see if you care to check the history. Nor have I ever been anywhere near his profile page.--Leigh Burne (Talk) (Contribs) 10:45, August 19, 2014 (UTC)

FURTHER EDIT: He has now taken to trying to remove this message entirely from this page.--Leigh Burne (Talk) (Contribs) 10:50, August 19, 2014 (UTC)

Well, I fail to find words that can describe how I feel the whole situation right now. A Patroller who I believed to be trusted enough to get rollback rights helps forming a conspiracy to... "take over", I think, a former sister wiki.

I want to apologize for not being here as much often as I used to be. Currently working until I'll join the IDF on October, and uses the short time I have between shifts to sleep. Also, some personal issues take some of my time and leave me a bit stressed.

On another note, I have a suggestion to change the RFP page; instead of a user nominating him/herself for a position, how about another user (preferably a staff member) nominating the user? For example, Patroller GTAerz nominating fellow Patroller RollingBlazerz to the position of Admin.

Welp, that's it so far. How are you? :P -- iLan ~ "'I'm no hero... Never was, never will be." (XDEdits ) 12:02, August 19, 2014 (UTC)

Unnamed Character

In the Flight School trailer the instructor calls himself JT Boyd, and he sounds exactly the same, trains pilots to military standards and has military experience, so it must be the same character as the Flight School Instructor, so should the page be renamed. I have already actioned the in page edits. Leo68 (talk) 02:41, August 21, 2014 (UTC)

Never mind, the page has been marked for deletion and a new one was made. Leo68 (talk) 03:40, August 21, 2014 (UTC)

Vandal

Cloudkit01 has issued two warning to this user. Vandalism and spam, nonsense on random pages. I've given him a third, so I figured you should know now. Leo68 (talk) 20:17, August 21, 2014 (UTC)

User jobs?

Hey.

Check this out. Is it OK for someone to post online user-created job pages here?

Mikey Klebbitz (talk) 20:09, August 24, 2014 (UTC)

Update: The same user, XxInfamousPR0xX has created a similar page for another user-created GTA Online job. Reply ASAP, so we can take care of this user.

I think that Rockstar Verified ones should be allowed as they are uploaded by Rockstar but just any job shouldn't as there are already over 1,000,000 and let's be honest, most aren't even good enough to be called "Jobs". So yeah, there aren't many Rockstar verified jobs so they should be allowed. LS11sVaultBoy (Talk) 21:48, August 24, 2014 (UTC)
Sorry to intrude in the conversation. But if you guys want to know, verified jobs are jobs with the "seal of approval" by Rockstar. This jobs get to be disclosed to the rest of the community and the creator receive some exclusive items in GTA Online. So far I think there's 40 jobs verified, with Rockstar verifying 10 new jobs every month. The guy is apparently making pages for the first 10, as you can see here: [8]. Like I said, there's 10 new jobs every month, so if we let the guy continue, we will ended up with a lot of new pages. 558050 Talk 18:59 August 24th, 2014 (UTC)
If Rockstar keeps verifying jobs at this rate, and we have page for each if these verified jobs, we're gonna have a LOT of these pages. We don't need this.
