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...:/

*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. --'''[[User:Thomas0802|Thomas0802]] • ([[User talk:Thomas0802|talk]] • [[Special:Contributions/Thomas0802|edits]])''' 17:22, September 15, 2013 (UTC)

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.

Could you change "WIWANG" and "WIWANG Tower" to "Wiwang" and "Wiwang Tower"? I named the company in capital letters looking at its logo, but I think it's more correct and looks better without them. Also, a GTA Online race is called "Wiwang Park", which proves this is the correct form. Thanks! [[User:DocVinewood|DocVinewood]] ([[User talk:DocVinewood|talk]]) 18:44, October 26, 2014 (UTC)

Hi Tom.

That it took my tantrum and departure to get some action. You might want to take care of his [[User:Actually JPH|sockpuppet]] while you are at it, just in case.
   
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.

==Daytime running lights page==

Hey Tom, I was talking to Smashbro8 right now, we had the idea of recreating the Daytime Running Lights page, which was deleted some time ago by LS11sVaultBoy, but we think that the feature is quite relevant for the game, as is the [[Door Ajar Chime|Door Ajar Chime&nbsp;and]] the [[Horns]], it's not only about the vehicles' headlights that can't be turned off while driving them, it's also about the neon lights that appeared in Chinatown Wars and in the enhanced version of GTA V, this can be seen in the [[Zentorno|Zentorno&nbsp;article]], what do you think about we recreate the page?

  +
  +
I know, the reason for the deletion was that the page was "irrelevant" while three patrollers and me found it relevant enough, but we want a page for the DRLs '''and '''the neon lights, the DRLs page was my motivation to create the [[Horns]] page, I think it is as relevant as the [[Door Ajar Chime]] page [[Image:Signature.png|105px|link=User:AndreEagle17|AndreEagle17]] <span style="font-size:large;">([[User talk:AndreEagle17|<span style="color:black">Talk</span>]]</span>) 19:28, November 6, 2014 (UTC)

There was a 3-1 arguement for keeping the article so I mentioned it to Tom (the administrator) and he took it down immediately.

Hi Tom,

I'm a little confused with this flash new editor the Wiki is using. I haven't used it much yet so I'm still learning the ropes. Is it still possible to attach a link with a different wording in the text of the page - similar to how it was done in the old editor? For example, can have a link to "Cluckin' Bell" appear as "chicken restaurant" on the page? [[User:Enigma24|Enigma24]] ([[User talk:Enigma24|talk]]) 23:12, November 17, 2014 (UTC)

Hope you don't mind, but I've archived your talk page. :) -- iLan (XDEdits ) 13:21, October 4, 2014 (UTC)

BAWSAQ ProblemEdit

As I am trying to get the most out of the assassiantion missions in GTA V, it does not want to let me buy Stocks with Michael, what could the problem be? Matt Seay (talk) 21:57, October 4, 2014 (UTC)

Beta ReleasesEdit

Hello Tom.

Can you help during my "Beta Releases" edit?. I add more Beta stuff from VC & III, but they always get removed!.

Can you please help?. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Claude Speede (talkcontribs)

RenameEdit

Hello, could you rename some pages? Davis Avenue instead of Davis Ave, Strawberry Avenue instead of Strawberry Ave, LS24 instead of LS 24 and Del Perro Restaurant Plaza instead of Del Perro Plaza (Restaurant). Also, Las Lagunas Blvd. should be deleted, since all the info is in the Las Lagunas Boulevard article. Thanks! DocVinewood (talk) 15:09, October 9, 2014 (UTC)

Staff Edit

Hey Tom, don't you think the staff is inactive a bit ? The admins have gone dark, Dan has made a couple of edits recently but did not answer messages on his talk page. Except the Patrollers, only you and Ilan are active, and two admins is not enough in my opinion. What do you think ? RainingPain17 (Talk - Edits - Blogs) 07:15, October 11, 2014 (UTC)

Alright. Could you issue a block to this user  ? He is the 10th sockpuppet account of a same guy that's been causing edit wars on this Wiki, and insulted me, Smashbro8 and AndreEagle17. I asked Ilan to do it but he probably missed my message. RainingPain17 (Talk - Edits - Blogs) 16:59, October 11, 2014 (UTC)

Exactly :) RainingPain17 (Talk - Edits - Blogs) 17:05, October 11, 2014 (UTC)

User Edit

There's a disrespectful user insulting, could you do something about it ? Thanks. RainingPain17 (Talk - Edits - Blogs) 18:06, October 14, 2014 (UTC)

HaiEdit

I'd like to talk with you on chat when both you and I are available on the same time. -- iLan (XDEdits ) 12:34, October 15, 2014 (UTC)

AntagonistsEdit

Thanks for removing Molly Schultz from the Antagonists list, I didn't find her that bad, she is just a "minor" antagonist and don't deserve to be in the major antagonists list Signature (Talk) 20:36, October 15, 2014 (UTC)

IMO a character that deserves to be antagonist for GTA IV would be Vlad, HE is a true antagonist, what do you think? Signature (Talk) 20:47, October 15, 2014 (UTC)

ReportEdit

I think you'll find the IP address of this user is not the same as the real one but is probably likely to be one of two that should now be permanently IP blocked from this wiki at least. Smurfynz (talk) 09:43, October 17, 2014 (UTC)

Demotion Edit

Hi, me and Smashbro8 were talking about opening a demotion request for Cloudkit01 on the RfP page, but Ilan said we should talk to you first. So, what do you think about it ? 

PS: I saw that Sean created a new account, "Smurfynz 2", if you see it, please block him as soon as you can. RainingPain17 (Talk - Edits - Blogs) 10:20, October 20, 2014 (UTC)

You can find the reasons hereRainingPain17 (Talk - Edits - Blogs) 17:02, October 20, 2014 (UTC)
Of course. Smashbro8 already attempted to reason him, and it ended up with Ilan giving a warning to Cloudkit (see here). We don't hate the guy, but personally I think there are users like Smurfynz, WildBrick or AndreEagle17 that deserve the spot more than him. RainingPain17 (Talk - Edits - Blogs) 17:14, October 20, 2014 (UTC)
Well, no we haven't. We thought Ilan's message would be enough.
If you do not support the demotion, I can understand that, but you can at least leave him a message. Explain him a couple of things about what Smashbro mentioned (such as checking his talk page, and also that his talk page is not made to answer other users, this is also why other users do have talk pages). RainingPain17 (Talk - Edits - Blogs) 17:36, October 20, 2014 (UTC)
Alright, thanks for doing this :) RainingPain17 (Talk - Edits - Blogs) 17:51, October 20, 2014 (UTC)
Still have issues with this user adding unverified BETA elements and irrelevant content (see here for an example), and edit warring. Thanks for taking care of this. RainingPain17 (Talk - Edits - Blogs) 20:36, October 20, 2014 (UTC)

Hey just a minor thing Edit

I noticed a minor error in your profile it says"I'm also and Administrator on the Sleeping Dogs Wiki, and The Godfather Wiki." in place of an you typed and just saying and not wanting to be a smartass karanmd (talk) 12:16, October 20, 2014 (UTC)

Another SeanSiew sockpuppet impersonating other usersEdit

User impersonating me this time, trying to vandalise user and talk pages. I have reported to Wikia staff (along with his dozen other IDs). Please, tell me, is this guy actually being smart enough to have multiple IPs because that would really be a surprise to me. Smurfynz (talk) 09:42, October 21, 2014 (UTC)

User Edit

Hey, I have this user who's been adding nonsense to the Penris page. First time I gave him a warning, but he repeated. RainingPain17 (Talk - Edits - Blogs) 21:40, October 21, 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for taking care of this. But now this user is adding nonsense in the Emerald Isle and Catalina pages. Jugg RainingPain17 Talk 21:28, October 22, 2014 (UTC)
Taken care of.

WiwangEdit

Could you change "WIWANG" and "WIWANG Tower" to "Wiwang" and "Wiwang Tower"? I named the company in capital letters looking at its logo, but I think it's more correct and looks better without them. Also, a GTA Online race is called "Wiwang Park", which proves this is the correct form. Thanks! DocVinewood (talk) 18:44, October 26, 2014 (UTC)

ComplaintEdit

I have a little complain about a user named RainingPain17 undoing my edits for the Entity XF page for performance. I have valid proof for the car being faster than 240 mph, and he keeps changing it. Here is the valid proof for the vehicle from my XBOX Screen. Image

What a ShameEdit

That it took my tantrum and departure to get some action. You might want to take care of his sockpuppet while you are at it, just in case.

Thanks, and bye Smurfynz (talk) 21:00, November 3, 2014 (UTC)
