== Help with an experiment? ==
  +
  +
Hello,
  +
  +
I wanted to ask you if this community would be interested in helping us improve search suggestions by participating in a little experiment? As part of our constant effort to improve this facet of our search functionality, we want to try out some alternate methods. If you agree, we will try out these changes here and measure the results.
  +
  +
The testing period will last between two to four weeks.
  +
  +
During that period you will see the following improvements: much faster search suggestions and a different look for the way they appear.
  +
  +
The possible drawbacks are: search suggest will only provide namespace suggestions (no images or categories), and any new articles created during the test will not automatically appear in search suggest (although we can manually add them if that will help).

GTA Wiki News

Hey, Da Tom.

Could you please check my new blog post?

Just made a massive mistake and I need help

Hey, I just COMPLETELY messed up the Huntley Sport II page!! Do you reckon you could help?  Jphillipsreinhard (talk) 13:49, August 23, 2013 (UTC)

GTA4 characters' deaths

People keep saying "Johnny and Rocco are dead it's confirmed in the radio". I'm searching for a so-called 'proof' right now.

What do you think? -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 19:36, August 24, 2013 (UTC)

I never listen to radio talk shows because I'm not native English speaker and I find it hard to drive and to listen a talk show in the same time. But I never heard about these deaths. Also, when you call Rocco it says he moved out of town.Dodo8 Talk
No, I'm talking about the leaked radio conversations in GTAV. -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 19:40, August 24, 2013 (UTC)
The game is leaked now. We're lucky nobody searched the missions names, the characters, etc (or they don't know how to). I also heard that Franklin is a FIB agent, and he kills Trevor. Dodo8 Talk
The game itself is not leaked, ONLY the soundtrack is. PS3 hackers are still trying to figure out how to crack down this one. Thankfully, this game is 18GBs; I don't have to upgrade my PS3 memory. -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 19:49, August 24, 2013 (UTC)
Wait for it to be confirmed in game. I'm also very apprehensive about allowing leaked info on the Wiki, I allowed this on a previous Wiki and TakeTwo contacted Wikia to have it removed. Tom Talk 12:01, August 25, 2013 (UTC)
Did you just said 18 GB? I don't have enough memory... :'( I'll have to wait for the PC version. F!@#! Dodo8 Talk
Just what we need: Speculation and the game comes out in four more weeks, it feels like 2012 all over again. I thought V was supposed to have 8GB, as seen on Wikipedia?
--Tony1998 (Talk * Contribs)-- 22:27, August 25, 2013 (UTC)
It's only 18GB if you are downloading the full game to your console. If you are buying the disk you only have to do 8GB. VaultBoy Tom (Talk | Edits) 17:18, September 3, 2013 (UTC)

Notification Glitch

Hey Tom. Are you having this weird notification glitch on the top right of your username that says "Gboyers left a new message on Empty's wall" and the date of the message was 6 years ago? I thought Gboyers and the old Grand Theft Wiki staff moved from Wikia in 2010 and now it brings this thingamabob up? Must be some type of glitch or a calling...:/

--Tony1998 (Talker * Blogger * Stalker)-- 03:34, September 3, 2013 (UTC)

I try, but it still pops up everytime I log in.
--Tony1998 (Talker * Blogger * Stalker)-- 23:40, September 3, 2013 (UTC)
I'll try to contact them about it. I was just wondering if anybody else besides me had it.
--Tony1998 (Talker * Blogger * Stalker)-- 23:57, September 3, 2013 (UTC)

Protection

Hi Tom, how's going? Well, I've been thinking and, is there really any reason to protect the page Grand Theft Auto IV now? I know there's nothing left to edit but there's no major reasons to protect at this time. Thanks :) --Thomas0802 • (talkedits) 17:13, September 15, 2013 (UTC)

  • It's okay, but thinking in that way, it means that all the GTA games before GTA IV would be protected too. However, I changed my idea and I think the GTA IV page needs to be protected so much as TLAD and TBOGT, because it is a big target for vandals. --Thomas0802 • (talkedits) 17:22, September 15, 2013 (UTC)

GTA V release

'sup Tom,

Hey man, just wanted to ask: will you get your GTA5 copy during its midnight launch, morning/afternoon/evening of Sep 17th or at some date later? -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 19:40, September 15, 2013 (UTC)

Well, I basically wanted to know what is the status of everyone with the game; most of us will get the game during day one, it seems, while others will have to wait 'til the PC release.
And thanks :) We've been working hard to keep the wiki clean until the game's launch. After tomorrow, I guess I will finally take a short vacation. -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 20:19, September 15, 2013 (UTC)
Yeah, finally, this is over. But just imagine what will happen in a few years from now with GTA VI *_* -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 20:33, September 15, 2013 (UTC)
Finally, got my copy! ^^ -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 11:50, September 16, 2013 (UTC)
I've played the first four-five missions. The world is huge and the characters are surprisigly likable. -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 12:36, September 16, 2013 (UTC)
Sorry for not helping XD Anyway, this game is my GOTY. -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 12:43, September 16, 2013 (UTC)
Also, don't want to spoil, but I just want to admit that I think GTAV has one of the best opening scenes/levels ever, and I think you'll agree with me, as well :) -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 12:44, September 16, 2013 (UTC)

The cover system is great, much, much faster than the one in IV or Max Payne 3. Hand-to-hand combat is also quicker and more effective than the one in GTAIV. -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 12:56, September 16, 2013 (UTC)

Well, driving and drive-by-shooting can be annoying, though. -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 13:00, September 16, 2013 (UTC)
The drive-by-shooting can be hard if you try to aim at your target, two of the first missions involve a chase, so I advise on getting used to the drive-by before doing these missions. As for the driving, I think so too, maybe I need to get used to it. -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 13:10, September 16, 2013 (UTC)
I'll do the story first, then I guess I'll start with the Strangers/Freaks missions (there's one near Franklin's home, but I'm yet to talk with her). -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 13:27, September 16, 2013 (UTC)
Alright, homie, I understand :) Speak to ya soon! -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 13:40, September 16, 2013 (UTC)

Inactivity notice

I just wanted to let you know, school starts on 16 September. Here, at the end of the year we will have to pass 2 exams with a grade as high as possible, this will decide our future. The higher the grade, the better the high school. Due to this I'll have to learn a lot and do a lot of homework, so I will become inactive. I'll try to check the wiki as much as possible, maybe even daily, but I won't edit that much. Cheers! Dodo8 Talk

Thanks for understanding. See you soon! :) Dodo8 Talk

Leaked info

This site is filled with leaked info that hasn't been removed yet, so you better get on it. 

Categories

Hi Tom.

The category Areas exists in all the neighborhoods in the GTA Series, but if you want I can avoid them in GTA V. What I take care at most in the Wikia and spend time occupied is with neighborhoods, cities and counties throughout the GTA Series and now with GTA V by the way. I'll add a category order to the n'hoods MoS soon.--Thomas0802 • (talkedits) 17:10, September 16, 2013 (UTC)

GTA V

So, what do you think? -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 14:14, September 17, 2013 (UTC)

I've reached the mission in which Michael and Trevor meet again - gonna be awesome. What do you think aobut the opening mission, sure was amazing. -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 18:39, September 17, 2013 (UTC)
Damn, the story gets crazier. I'm already working for FIB's Steve Haines. -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 08:09, September 18, 2013 (UTC)

Hi Tom, I hope you don't count this as spamming, but can you please sign this petition? every sign in is important. AK-28 (TalkEdits) 23:06, September 17, 2013 (UTC)

RE:Safehouses

I think so, but I keep my money for after the main story. There are so many assests to buy there, but I think I gonna buy the marijuana store, just for fun ^^ Oh, Franklin gets a new safehouse from Lester. -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 09:50, September 19, 2013 (UTC)

Damn, you're fast; since I'm too busy with study, I can effort only a few hours to play. -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 09:53, September 19, 2013 (UTC)
I dunno, maybe. What do you think about the flying mechanics, by the way? -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 10:00, September 19, 2013 (UTC)
The flight school was interesting, but I had trouble with the heli (which feels more difficult to control than in IV). -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 10:04, September 19, 2013 (UTC)

Bury the Hatchet

I've reached this mission today and damn, this is probably the most emotion-driven mission in the entire franchise, beating the crap oout "That Special Someone". -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 17:32, September 20, 2013 (UTC)

When Trevor discovers Brad's fate. -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 17:43, September 20, 2013 (UTC)
That single moment when Trevor and Mike pull a pistol at each other was downright my fav moment inthe game so far. -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 17:57, September 20, 2013 (UTC)
It was a true shocker for me; Rockstar kinda ruined JK's character - that what happens when you smoke meth for 5 years until GTAV. Terry and Clay's deaths were also shocking. -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 18:51, September 20, 2013 (UTC)
Let's see: Johnny attacked an AOD hideout to take back Billy's bike, chased down AODs, killed AODs, blew up AOD's clubhouse, stole AOD bikes, capped cops, escaped from an ambush during heroin deal (twice), worked for a corrupted congressman, saved his ex from fucking dealers, won The Lost civil war, double crossed one of the most dangerous Capos in LC, assassinated an assassination team sent by the Capo, and broke into a fucking prison... and then he died like a pussy... -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 19:30, September 20, 2013 (UTC)
I think R* decided to kill off Johnny as he was considered the "badass" guy out of GTA4's trio. Showing Trevor - the badass of GTA5's trio - killing GTA4's badass is probably R*'s way to say: GTA5 is more badass, guys. What do you think about the Floyd/Debra cutscene? -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 20:00, September 20, 2013 (UTC)
Nothing too deep about the guy's past: grew up in Canada or something, was a psycho pretty much from the very beginning, had a lot of love (bromance) to Michael and Brad. Guess he was just "born" psycho. -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 21:07, September 20, 2013 (UTC)

because I dont see the harm in making up dob's, were did you get 1968 from? none of that is legit either.

Reanme

Hi Tom, can you please rename this page to Meltdown (GTA IV) and this page to The Big Score (GTA A)? Thanks. --Thomas0802 • (talkedits) 14:17, September 21, 2013 (UTC)

The Wrap Up

Hey man, is Agent Sanchez' (Haines' lap dog who gets his brain split out) first name mentioned somewhere in the game or the credits?

BTW, I've reached the mission 'The Wrap Up' (where you can kill ULP ). -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 16:28, September 21, 2013 (UTC)

1)Thanks, I guess I'll make a page for him. 2)Yes, he's killable, probably it's canon, or maybe this is like Miguel from GTA3/GTALCS and he'll just reappear unharmed in GTA VI. But yeah, he's killable. -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 16:37, September 21, 2013 (UTC)
Yeah, not to mentioned the idea he's working for the IAA. Karen is also seen in the game, working for the FIB. I have a wild guess that ULP got dissloved or something. -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 16:45, September 21, 2013 (UTC)
Excatly, but their cameos felt somewhat forced. I really liked Trevor's arrival in the mission, though, when he sniped the fucking heli. Also, what do you think 'bout Molly's death? BTW, can we consider her an antagonist? -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 16:54, September 21, 2013 (UTC)
Not yet, is Packie's encounter a 'Stranger/Freak' mission, or a random event (like Sonny Bottino's daughter)? BTW, I actually prefer Trev with Patricia Madrazo! XD -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 17:07, September 21, 2013 (UTC)
Awesome, I heard he has high stats (also, if he dies, will he return?). PS, yeah, he'll always have some paranoid ass kisser and a mentally challenged Juggalo :P -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 17:21, September 21, 2013 (UTC)

Hey

Could you add this code at the start of ever Grand Theft Auto video game page?

{{DISPLAYTITLE: ''{{PAGENAME}}''}}

Also, what do you think about Aliens and Creatures pages I added info and images to?Dodo8 Talk

I don't know what is the problem, it says that the website detected spam. Thanks for adding the code to the other pages though! And I haven't explored the mythical creatures either since I'll wait for the PC version, but there are plenty of videos on YouTube. :) Dodo8 Talk

User with Inappropiate Username

Hi Tom, there is a user by the name of SexDepot.co.uk, who has a spam username and left a spam link on his userpage. He's not vandalising, but I'm going to warn him to change his name. If he starts to attack, I'll let you know.

--Tony1998 (Talker * Blogger * Stalker)-- 19:26, September 21, 2013 (UTC)

Michael

Michael states that he ran hookers and smuggled dope in the introduction mission at the start of the game where Michael is talking to his therapist. Trevor tells Wade in the mission Friends Reunited that Amanda got implants to help with her days as a stripper as well as her occasional days being a hooker. If you don't believe me, then watch these videos below. -- Painkill (talk) 00:41, September 22, 2013 (UTC)

[1]

[2]

Good to know you were just curious. I've been cautious about what I edit for these last few days since people will lock pages if they even think that something related to a specific article isn't true.

The Third Way

I finished the main story, choosing the 'Deathwish' option. -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 08:43, September 22, 2013 (UTC)

Deathwish was awesome, something like a mass orgy of death. But I', gonna check the other endings too. By the way, who do you consider the main bad guy of the game? -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 08:51, September 22, 2013 (UTC)
I couldn't say that better! haha XD I actually think the game doesn't have a main antagonist, in a similar way to LA Noire (where we had too many major bad guys). And no, I didn't do any new stranger/random missions for heist crew members. -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 09:20, September 22, 2013 (UTC)
Haha, I was thinking the same! -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 09:27, September 22, 2013 (UTC)

Heist Crew members

Hi there, you probably don't remember me but I've been an on off user on here for years and I used to edit at the RDR and L.A. Noire wikis (I think I saw you there anyways, your name seems very familiar). Anyhow, I was just wondering, do you know how to unlock Daryl Johns, Karl Abolaji and Hugh Welsh? I only ask because I want to make a "Crew Members" article (or section for "Heists" if you think it's better fit there) and I'd like to include how the crew members are unlocked/what heists they can participate in. Further more, do you know of any other heist members? I know all of the initial ones (three hackers, two drivers and two gunmen) as well as some of the unlockables (Packie, Taliana, and Chef), and those three I asked about, but I don't know of any others. Any help is appreciated, man. Le Rusecue (talk) 08:57, September 22, 2013 (UTC)

Yeah I counted that guy as one of the initial three hackers, since as far as I know there's no way you can miss out on getting him and the mission he's in takes place before the first heists. As for Abolaji, I didn't hear about him either until I saw him on IGN's video of The Big Score. It's no problem man, this stuff is just kinda driving me crazy, haha. Thanks man, hopefully we learn something soon, yeah? Le Rusecue (talk) 09:09, September 22, 2013 (UTC)

Sorry it took me so long to get back to you, I didn't realize I had a message on here. Thanks for the list, but... That's my list, haha. I made it on GTAforums. Anyways, I see that articles have been added for all the characters - Did you guys find something else out? Le Rusecue (talk) 16:38, October 1, 2013 (UTC)

GTA V

I am playing the game at this time so if i here anything on the radio i will do a write up on it. Owen1983 (talk) 11:34, September 22, 2013 (UTC)

OK, I just thought that because the LCPD knows their location, then they are most wanteds. Jeansowaty 13:10, September 22, 2013 (UTC)Jeansowaty

OK. Jeansowaty 13:48, September 22, 2013 (UTC)Jeansowaty

RE:

Yes, and it also didn't follow the policy. -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 15:31, September 22, 2013 (UTC)

That, and it wasn't licensed (although I'm more forgiving towards licensing since most new users are clueless about that). -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 15:33, September 22, 2013 (UTC)

RE:Antagonists

I do consider Haines and Devin as main antagonists, but I have a problem with calling Stretch and Cheng Sr 'main' antagonists, since they appeared in only two missions or so (three/four if you consider phone calls). -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 18:35, September 22, 2013 (UTC)

And I think I understand why each protagonist took out another protagonist's antagonit; maybe it was their way to show they can trust on each other, by killing another's enemy. Also, I think Devin's death was too cruel (yeah, it weird when it comes from me, isn't it?), they could at least give him some pants before pushing. -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 18:48, September 22, 2013 (UTC)
About Trev's torture, did you know that several reviewers and rights groups were negative about his torture of Mr. K in "By The Book"? I dunno, I think Rockstar did a brilliant thing with putting this scene, 'cos later Trevor criticizes the use of torture by the IAA and the FIB and he even spares K's life. That was cool, bro. -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 18:58, September 22, 2013 (UTC)
It showed a different side of Trevor, not too different, but still noticable. -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 19:07, September 22, 2013 (UTC)
Sons of bitches... someone on Wikipedia has copied my work on Dave Norton's page! I personally don't mind, but they should giver me some credit! Eh... whatever, I'll revamp the whole page at some point in the future. -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 19:11, September 22, 2013 (UTC)
NO. By the unwritten, self-made rule of my unwritten, made up, book of editing, I shall never vandalize a page, NEVER. :P -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 19:22, September 22, 2013 (UTC)
LoL, that is allowed, man. But ONLY that! Morals... ugh... -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 19:26, September 22, 2013 (UTC)
I'm telling you, that guy is the one who vandalized the pages of the biker gangs and Mexican gangs! I'm taking a wild guess he doesn't like 'em! -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 19:30, September 22, 2013 (UTC)
Speaking of gangs, GTAV has a very small collection of them, only Families, the Ballas, The Lost, and the Vagos. -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 19:36, September 22, 2013 (UTC)
Kinda shame, if you ask me: the biggest GTA with the smallest number of gangs. I want the Russian and Italian Mafia back for GTA VI! -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 19:40, September 22, 2013 (UTC)

Bigfoot

Hey, Tom. Would you please create a pa ge for Bigfoot? I am not allowed to do it. And yes, there's proof.Dodo8 Talk

Well there are some arguments and counter arguments. There's the thermal thing, but there's more! A bigfoot appears on the logo of the LSPD, and there are also shirts that have the same kind of picture but with "Yeti" written instead. Also, after getting 100% completion, there's a stranger mission near Mount Chiliad. You have to shoot a bigfoot, but after shooting him it is revealed that it's actually a man in a suit. That doesn't necessarily means that bigfoot is fake. As you know, during the mission with the thermal thing, bigfoot will disappear. How could a human being do that? I've seen a real-life report, some people say that bigfoot can teleport. Howsoever, we still need to create a page for him.Dodo8 Talk
I think it is locked to prevent recreation, because of the time when Bigfoot was still a myth.Dodo8 Talk
I don't think creating a page named "Bigfoot (GTA V)" is good, that would mean that he also existed in other games, which is not true. Could you create the "Bigfoot" page please? I'll add content to it afterwards. BTW, here's the clip:

Dodo8 Talk

HIGH QUALITY:

Dodo8 Talk

I will! After I add some content I'll log off. See you soon! :) Dodo8 Talk

Roman

What do you mean it doesn't prove anything cause it's an Easter egg? It's in the game, it's not like it's some big joke thing. It clearly (well, very blurry) shows that Roman is alive and has a Lifeinvader. Shadowrunner(stuff) 00:40, September 23, 2013 (UTC)

How is that a nod? Rockstar made that image and put Roman on there. It's not like some big revelation, it's just saying Roman is alive and that's all. Shadowrunner(stuff) 01:10, September 23, 2013 (UTC)
While I do agree with you with other protags from the 3D universe and the references to DJs and other side characters, this is a reference to a character that's actually in the same universe as GTA V. Not someone from San Andreas, Vice City or 3. Shadowrunner(stuff) 01:48, September 23, 2013 (UTC)
Ok, well you're right about it being big because of the ending thing, but so what? Rockstar is just saying which ending they prefer. I mean, the stuff about other minor characters are covered on here and aren't discarded as just being easter eggs and major character references in the 3D universe are covered, so why is this the exception that doesn't get covered? Shadowrunner(stuff) 02:18, September 23, 2013 (UTC)
That laptop image also counts for Niko, since he's never actually called by name only referred to as that Eastern European guy, and Bruice Kibbutz on the bullshark testosterone website. Brucie's is probably the most substantial of the two. I'm still playing so I don't know that many yet. Shadowrunner(stuff) 12:23, September 23, 2013 (UTC)

San Andreas Flag

You know anyone on here that's kinda an artist? I ask because I'm making an image of the San Andreas flag, but I can't find a good vector image of a Beaver anywhere and I'm not too good at drawing animals and such to do it myself. Shadowrunner(stuff) 18:30, September 23, 2013 (UTC)

Is there someone on here that usually makes images? Shadowrunner(stuff) 20:22, September 23, 2013 (UTC)

Isiah Friedlander

Did you know you can kill the guy? -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 18:30, September 23, 2013 (UTC)

Same here. I also killed Joseph and Joe earlier. -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 18:40, September 23, 2013 (UTC)
The "Kill Trevor" ending is the worst. Trevor's death was, as Dodo said to me, "disrespectful". -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 18:45, September 23, 2013 (UTC)
Yeah, seems like an afterthought to me, although maybe it was just for the Michael/Trevor haters (nobody gives a fuck 'bout Franklin, anyway), but "Deathwish" was rather well executed, and enjoyable. -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 18:50, September 23, 2013 (UTC)
Michael. No! Trevor... No! Franklin... NO! I.. I don't know!!! -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 18:54, September 23, 2013 (UTC)
Michael is the protagonist I uses the most, around +40% according to the Social Club. To me it's hard to pick the 'central' protagonist, as the moment I thought one is the center of the story, the story moves to a young wannabe gangster who works as a repo-man, before moving the story again to a psycho who fucks the meth-head ex of a broken MC president. -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 19:01, September 23, 2013 (UTC)
And then Franklin comes to pick up the ending :P -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 19:05, September 23, 2013 (UTC)

IGN Video

Hi, The Tom!

We've been given a video by IGN on how to steal a "jet fighter". I'm not sure exactly where the video should be placed, or even if you might be interested, so I thought I throw you a link so you could decide for yourself.

United Liberty Paper Contact Name Rename?

Hey, I was wondering if you thought the name for the United Liberty Paper Contact page should be changed. Would it be better to use his name as stated in the game's credits, United Paper Man?

--The Milkman | I always deliver. 08:36, September 25, 2013 (UTC)

That's his name as stated in the credits for Grand Theft Auto V, I believe. I suppose that would be considered more "official". The Milkman | I always deliver. 08:54, September 25, 2013 (UTC)

It's possible that GTA V will come for Wii U

Dear The Tom, I have seen that you have reversed my edit. Why you did that? It's really not excluded that the game will come on the Wii U, it's a HD console with a bit more HD capability than the PS3 and Xbox 360 and the President of Nintendo of America has said that he would like to see the game on the Wii U. Besides, there is an petition here that can make it even more possible. Tim Auke Kools (talk) 13:05, September 25, 2013 (UTC)

Then also applies that for a PC version. I have surfed on the internet, and even a PC version is not official announced yet. Tim Auke Kools (talk) 15:23, September 25, 2013 (UTC)

Bay City Apartment

In Grand Theft Auto V, you can buy properties, with the Bay City Apartment being one. However, you must walk up to the property's icon (a house with a dollar sign in it) and it will ask you if you wish to purchase. The player then has the choice of whether to purchase it or not. I'm assuming you do not have the game so you are assuming you cannot buy properties in GTA V. Smashbro8 (talk) 16:51, September 26, 2013 (UTC)Smashbro8

Safehouses in GTA V

OK, you might be right about that. I have not tried to purchase anything yet through Dynasty 8 cause I do not have enough money obviously.

Grove Street Families

When escaping from the cops, Lamar and Franklin begin talking about how Grove use to be Families territory. It's also in the notes of Hood Safari. Shadowrunner(stuff) 18:56, September 26, 2013 (UTC)

MC Clip

Well, I had just finished playing Hood Safari a couple days ago when I changed the radio station afterwards. When Weazel News came on, it reported MC Clip died in a shootout between the The Families and the Ballas, which was basically what Hood Safari was about. A fan then came on crying because of the deceased rapper and Weazel News again reported MC Clip is dead. That's all I heard so leave MC Clip as deceased. I am not a liar and I only edit the truth on this wiki. Please be grateful, I am trying to help! Smashbro8 (talk) 19:47, September 26, 2013 (UTC)Smashbro8

From I understand, the player's actions affect Weazel News reports; you kill MC, there's a report - you don't kill him, there's no report. The same goes for Ashley Butler; you spare her life, and WN reports about her death in a drug party (from I understand); you kill her, however, and there's no report (Interesting thing, though, she'll still message Ron on Lifeinvader. -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 19:53, September 26, 2013 (UTC)

MC Clip's death

Nope I just left him behind. Weazel News reported after the mission he died. I am certain he is dead cause I heard the reporter's line "MC Clip is dead," . Smashbro8 (talk) 19:56, September 26, 2013 (UTC)Smashbro8

I hear you, bro. Damn, that sucks! I love GTAV and admit it to be my favorite game of all time, but at the same time I'm a bit disappointed about several features that were removed from the game.

Is there any reason why LS11sVaultBoy is an admin? He doesn't appear to have qualities of one and he ignores the usual formats/templates. I've made an article of a collection of the Epsilon missions in GTA V and he made another which doesn't seem to have much of an organized feel. --OmegaRasengan (talk) 21:45, September 28, 2013 (UTC)

Yeah, you're right. But he gives me some inexperienced vibes. I haven't really seen an admin on any wiki edit like him before so it's unusual for me. --OmegaRasengan (talk) 22:06, September 28, 2013 (UTC)

Yeah, I guess it would be alright to have them back. I noticed you've been bringing back the pulling favors mission pages.

I'm not sure, either. -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 14:34, September 29, 2013 (UTC)

RE:Antagonist

Kinda hard for me to consider him an antagonist, or even a main character. Sure, he's the one who drives Mike back to robbery, but, his last appearance in the game was rather too silly ("The other ear!"). Not to mention he and the protagonists part ways on a rather good note (*cough* being Trevor's bitch). -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 16:19, September 29, 2013 (UTC)

You have some point, but it's not just his silly appearance, he doesn't feel like an antagonist; he didn't do anything (really) bad to the protagonist compare to others, let's say Diaz or Mendez (since all are Hispanic cartel bosses); no betrayal, kidnapping (Light My Pyre), ambush (In The Beginning (GTA VC)), toturing a friend, etc. Hard to explain, if to be honset. -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 16:38, September 29, 2013 (UTC)
Excatly. He's not the first of his kind in the series, though; we had Ray in TLAD, as Johnny stole his money, although Ray was far more ruthless than Madrazo. -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 16:51, September 29, 2013 (UTC)

Hi Tom, there's a lot of rumors going on that maybe GTA V will be released for PC in 22 November.

This isn't speculative. This is Roman mentioned clearly by someone else.

Rigby

Hi, Tom. It seems that the guy posting questions is actually Rigby. After you asked him about his age and I expressed my disagreement on him being 27, he complained to Dan. It seems that this is Rigby's new account. Due to these, I consider he should be blocked for having multiple accounts and even being below 13 years old (I doubt 13+ year olds watch Enzo and have such bad grammar). I don't want any problems with him again. I don't care how many blogs he will create from now on, I'll just ignore him. If you consider I should say sorry to him I'll do. You should talk to Dan about this, since you are Bureaucrats and should decide. I don't want it to become a major conflict. Cheers! Dodo8 Talk

Ok. Thanks for the answer. I'll ignore him from now on. Dodo8 Talk
All under control as I decided to block him indefinitely for multiple account use. Also his other account has been blocked on Wikia globally. Messi1983 (talk) 11:20, September 30, 2013 (UTC)
He must be under 13 so maybe that's why he's globally blocked. That said, his Little Enzo account is banned from chat on Community Central, so maybe there's something else. Tom Talk 11:28, September 30, 2013 (UTC)

Korean Mob to Khangpae

Hey Tom how do I change the main title of the Korean Mob page want to change it to Kkangpae.

Tracey.

Hey Tom, I noticed you undid the edit, I understand but there appears to be an issue now, if I recall there's been interviews stating that Tracey is the younger sibling, so I can come up with three ideas, Rockstar have either, changed it so Tracey's the older sibling, Rockstar messed up with her age or from a character perspective it wouldn't be too surprising if Tracey has lied about her age, just sharing my thoughts about it is all.

Help with an experiment?

Hello,

I wanted to ask you if this community would be interested in helping us improve search suggestions by participating in a little experiment? As part of our constant effort to improve this facet of our search functionality, we want to try out some alternate methods. If you agree, we will try out these changes here and measure the results.

The testing period will last between two to four weeks.

During that period you will see the following improvements: much faster search suggestions and a different look for the way they appear.

The possible drawbacks are: search suggest will only provide namespace suggestions (no images or categories), and any new articles created during the test will not automatically appear in search suggest (although we can manually add them if that will help).
