Welcome to GTA Wiki:Requests for Promotion.

You may apply for Rollback Rights or Administrator privileges on this noticeboard. To do so, you must meet the prerequisites, and then state what position you are looking for and why you think you need the rollback and/or administrator tools.


There is currently

position open.

Please apply below if you are interested.


Requests for Checkuser and Revision Delete must be done at Community Central (and they will probably be declined).

Patrollers are given the Rollback tool that allows users to quickly revert vandalism. They are also given Chat moderator rights that allow them to kick and ban users from the wiki's chat.

Administrators have the power to block and ban users, protect pages, move images, and delete pages and images, in addition to rollback.

To qualify for rollback rights, editors must have been active for two months with no rules violations. Rollbackers must receive a 60% 'yes' percentage to be promoted. Users who apply within three months of joining will face a three month probationary period. This may also apply in situations such as inexperience or users who were previously demoted. At the end of the three months a review will be made by Bureaucrats and Administrators to determine whether or not the user will retain their rights.

To qualify for administrator rights, editors must have been active patrollers for four months with no rule violations. Administrators must receive a 70% 'yes' percentage to be promoted. Those applying for adminship will likely be asked questions on how they deal with certain situations. This is to see if a user has the capabilities of being an administrator.

Editors with rollback and administrator experience on other wikis are encouraged to apply, and based on the editor in question exceptions may be made to the length of time editing required for promotion.

When applying for promotion, a community vote will take place. Voting lasts 7 days, although it may be allowed to run shorter (in the case of an obvious pass/fail) or longer (in the case of a very close vote) at bureaucrat discretion. Only bureaucrats should close votes.

Application users who are caught tampering with other users votes, such as changing a no to a yes, will have their request closed immediately.

Please submit your requests at the top of the "Active requests" page subsection.

Requests where the voting has finished can be found at

MythHunter 007 - Patroller

Closed as Unsuccessful by LS11sVaultBoy (Talk) 19:52, November 7, 2015 (UTC)

Hi, my name is MythHunter 007, and I'm requesting to be a patroller on this wiki. I have + 510 edits, and I've been active on this wiki for two months. And I know a-lot about coding templates. I'm trying to be friendly with everyone. I have been playing GTA for six years now, so I know alot about the series. I own GTA III, GTA VC, and GTA SA. I get along with pretty much everyone on the wiki and I would love to be part of the GTA Wikis staff so I can help new users out and help keep this wiki clean. --MythHunter 007 03:28, November 7, 2015 (UTC)



  • No offense intended, but the way this was organized tells me you're not quite ready. Usally, users who apply after 2 months have made a more significant impact on the wiki, and their edit count is above 1000. Won't always be a no, but it is now. Leo68 (talk) 06:43, November 7, 2015 (UTC)
  • Sorry, but if you think adding links to '$' and adding italics to 'Grand Theft Auto' is patroller-worthy edits, then I don't know what the world has come to. Your edits aren't constructive enough, it's simply 500edits of adding links and italics. Sorry, it's way too early, not to mention you haven't exactly used the image policy reminder on any user. Monkeypolice188-Signature-2 • Monkeypolice188-Signature-4 • Monkeypolice188-Signature-3 09:56, November 7, 2015 (UTC)
  • Same as these guys, you just aren't ready and haven't proven yourself. LS11sVaultBoy (Talk) 10:15, November 7, 2015 (UTC)
  • What everyone said. It's a bit too early to apply. V-michael-trunk-miniV-franklin-trunk-miniV-trevor-trunk-mini 10:41, November 7, 2015 (UTC)
  • Not even ready for a probation. 500 edits based on simple fixes/linking won't get you a patroller position. You have to be more patient and wait for a better opportunity to apply next time. Sorry. Thegtaseeker96 (talk) 12:12, November 7, 2015 (UTC)
  • Sorry man, but no. I have enough trust on you that you can be a good patroller, but you should wait for a couple of months, while staying active. That will sure earn you a patroller position. Myth(Talk/Stalk) 16:12, November 7, 2015 (UTC)
  • Well, everyone above explains why, and I'm not very convinced about the request. Therefore, "no". Sorry. Body Armor Android SWAT Cam F Torpedo Android Detonator Android Crate Android 16:44, November 7, 2015 (UTC)
  • I feel that you are a good contributor to this wiki, as well as worthy eventually of becoming a Patroller, but you have yet to make adequate use of your rights. As Marcus suggested to me during my first, withdrawn request for promotion to Patroller, you should start showing that you have the right stuff to be a Patroller by notifying me or other members of Staff if you notice a user in violation of the policies of this wiki, and also by issuing Image Policy reminders to users who have violated the Media Policy for the first time. If you retry in a while, after proving your moderating skills, I will be happy to give you a "Yes" vote. TAlim 1994 - Konan T-A Lim (talk | contributions) 19:48, November 7, 2015 (UTC)

Monkeypolice188 - Administrator

Closed as successful by LS11sVaultBoy (Talk) 22:48, November 6, 2015 (UTC)


So, after numerous (over 6 as far as I remember) suggestions from my fellow wiki friends, I've decided to (finally) apply for Administrator. It's to remember that Andre was one of my favorite friends and my main thanks go to him :)

Hopefully, you all know me by now (It's a doubt you won't, considering how active I am lol). Basically, I'm Monk, known as the brains for the vehicles of this wiki. I edit daily, very active, which I consider another advantage to being an admin. I'm constantly upgrading and improving articles, mostly vehicles, to get the best, most accurate information out of them. I deeply thank anyone who supports me with this, as I'm often referred to as the "car" guy here xD

My work? Well, A LOT. As I said, I work on vehicle articles, therefore I'm constantly collecting data, whether that be speeds, acceleration times, or prices, etc. I'm also constantly using my own knowledge to further upgrade vehicle design and performance descriptions, as well as engine specs, details, and imagery. As well as this, I often link my template work to vehicles. Recently, I completed this, which, prior to working on a long time project found here, was suggested by a member of the community (as you may know, I'm very considerate to what community want and how I can work around it to improvise or fit any regulations, etc), where the initial idea was to implement an imaged-table of vehicles for the Vehicles in GTA V article. AS well as all that, I've being so active that, I've even managed to be the creator of many DLC vehicle cars, such as those as part of the Ill-Gotten Gains Part 2 DLC, the ToroBrawlerT20, etc, and I've added more than 100 video files, many of those being the official soundtracks of GTAV/Online (which, btw, I had to create articles from, and had full permission from the owners to do so). I also consider many of my projects as a huge success, thanks to other users too. Er, what else? Oh yeah, grammar. I think, even despite my major memory loss, accident, problems, etc, my grammar has really improved and I rarely make mistakes, so you can trust me (well, you can trust me, not my tablet, whom makes a ton of typos xD).

On from that, I created a largely-favored To Do List, which, I consider one of my main projects, it being part of the "GTA Wiki:" articles xD.

Now, why do I think I should be admin? Well...

I've finally concluded that, as I do say myself, I've learnt a lot this year. I think (and so do others) I've really improved here, whether that be attitude, contributions, or general likeness received from others. I've made my mistakes, I'm not afraid to admit, in fact, I think my attitude was awful when I first joined, so I just hope we can all put that in the past (to be exact, Archive 1 xD), and move on. I want to fill the gap Andre's left us, and hope to impress you all in the future. I think my activeness here will really benefit my chances of being a successful admin, so I can constantly be on the ball, ready for any vandals, rude users, or just general renaming or deleting of articles.

Now, here we go, go ahead and vote. Just be honest. Monkeypolice188-Signature-2 • Monkeypolice188-Signature-4 • Monkeypolice188-Signature-3 15:38, November 6, 2015 (UTC)




  • Because I know you can, Monk. XD Body Armor Android SWAT Cam F Torpedo Android Detonator Android Crate Android 15:41, November 6, 2015 (UTC)
  • Best patroller around. Hundreds of edits per day, policy enforcer, great attitude. Just can't say no. Thegtaseeker96 (talk) 16:23, November 6, 2015 (UTC)
  • Definitely deserve it. LS11sVaultBoy (Talk) 16:31, November 6, 2015 (UTC)
  • Can't imagine in a million years, why it would be a "no"! You're by FAR one of the most active users on the wiki, and I think you could get a lot done in this position, a yes from me, Monk! Mortsnarg (talk) 17:29, November 6, 2015 (UTC)
  • Just came here to vote "yes". EagleIcon AndreEagle17 PS3 Triangle PS3 Cross PS3 Circle 19:04, November 6, 2015 (UTC)
  • Everytime I come here he is around. He makes lots of edits, and as I can see, people here like him. So yes, go for it. General9913 (talk) 21:22, November 6, 2015 (UTC)N
  • I don't have to say anything to know you deserve the position Monk. You've done a fantastic job around here. Smashbro8-Sig-pt1 (Smashbro8-Sig-pt2) 21:26, November 6, 2015 (UTC)Smashbro8
  • You definitely deserve to be an Administrator. You are a very diligent user and you use your tools wisely. I know you will be an excellent Admin! Andy A. (Talk · Edits) 21:44, November 6, 2015 (UTC)
    • I'd like to thank you all, for being so supportive. I'm shocked I've got this far. Thanks to you all. If an admin/bcrat could join the chat the next time they see me in there, that'd be great, as I'll need to advice on something.

TAlim 1994 - Patroller (re-application)

Closed as successful subject to three months probation by LS11sVaultBoy (Talk) 22:59, October 28, 2015 (UTC)

Good day, I wish to re-apply for the position of Patroller. My reasons remain the same as my last application, and I only wish to add two other notes: firstly, as per the advice of other Staff members, I have attempted to take a more active role as a policy enforcer since my last application, and I have issued several Image Policy reminders to the appropriate users; secondly, I have now (at the time of writing this message) made 1,097 edits on this wiki (including the creation of one new page), approximately double the number of edits made since my previous application.

  • I feel you are definitely able to become a Patroller now. However, I still recommend probation just to test you out when you actually are a patroller. LS11sVaultBoy (Talk) 10:48, October 27, 2015 (UTC)
  • Righteo, you've certainly improved, so, now, the only issue to tackle is your lack of edits and activity. You're going to be a good staff member for the warning and dispute-side of things, but in order for this to be successful, I really think you'll need to become more active so you can be fully aware of these issues. Obviously, you don't need to be as active as some of us (for example, me who's online every day as I have absolutely no life lol), but every few days is really necessary, unless, albeit, you make a warning that you'll be offline for a given/private reason. I think you're capable now, I may seem slightly contradictory to what I said last time, but honestly, you'll do good. I think the break you took (or whatever it was) worked. Monkeypolice188-Signature-2Monkeypolice188-Signature-4Monkeypolice188-Signature-3 11:50, October 27, 2015 (UTC)
  • I can see your improvement since your initial promotion request. You have made more edits, and I can also see you using your rights. So, I'm gonna give a yes :) MC My Computer Master Of Ceremonies 12:33, October 27, 2015 (UTC)
  • You can be a patroller. But I think you should do the probation. Myth(Talk/Stalk) 14:54, October 27, 2015 (UTC)
  • Well, seems like you improved from the first request and you did a good job, but still having problems to "trust on you" (or because I'm giving a wrong word and I'm an idiot :P). However, you stated me as one of your allies (which I didn't noticed :D) and you're being respectful for everyone, so I'll give a yes. Body Armor Android SWAT Cam F Torpedo Android Detonator Android Crate Android 22:34, October 27, 2015 (UTC)
    • Ignore it. Sorry if I offended you. Actually, I can trust you. But please, don't say that I'm a bad person. Body Armor Android SWAT Cam F Torpedo Android Detonator Android Crate Android 23:25, October 28, 2015 (UTC)
  • You've certainly improved since your last request for promotion and your attitude is excellent. May I add: I do like your "professional politeness" talk :). Aside with your need to improve your activity, your edit quality is above par, outstanding conduct with staff, and you're really helpful. All these attributes signify of a great patroller, therefore a yes from me. --Tony42898 (Talker - Blogger - Stalker)-- 01:36, October 28, 2015 (UTC)
  • I can't say anything about change, because I haven't been active enough. If it's good enough for everyone else, I'll put up a probation vote. Leo68 (talk) 04:54, October 28, 2015 (UTC)
  • Andre and Jamal are you going to explain your neutral votes? I can't see why it should get an outright "Neutral" without an explanation for why. Monkeypolice188-Signature-2Monkeypolice188-Signature-4Monkeypolice188-Signature-3 22:17, October 28, 2015 (UTC)

Myth hunter - Patroller

Closed as successful subject to two months probation by Leo68 (talk) 00:36, October 3, 2015 (UTC) Hello fellow GTA Wiki users. I am Myth hunter and I want to become a patroller on GTA Wiki. Until last month when I got inactive due to exams, I was regularly active here. And since my exams are over now I will be active here as much as I can. I clearly understand all the policies of the wiki. I have around 1500 edits. I was previously a patroller here but failed my probation due to inactivity as I was having connection issues. I have experience of handling staff positions on some other wikis also. I always try to be a civil user. So, I wish to become a patroller here and keep the wiki free from any vandals and rule violations. As I was previously demoted I will have to do a 2 months probation even if I am successful, so please vote Yes if you want me to be a patroller here and No if you do not want me to be a patroller. If I have anything to improve, please do state it in the comments. - Myth(Talk/Stalk) 15:23, October 2, 2015 (UTC)



  • He was a good patroller previously, and did helped the wiki during those times. So, why not? MC My Computer Master Of Ceremonies 15:26, October 2, 2015 (UTC)
  • I never saw how you behaved as a patroller the previous time, but my instinct tells me you did well, and you'll do well again. --Guy A (Junior) - That Ferrari Guy (talk) 15:29, October 2, 2015 (UTC)
  • You're a great contributor here, with great edits and have been very active in the last days. I'm sure you'll help even more as a patroller. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Thegtaseeker96 (talkcontribs) Please remember to sign your talk page messages with ~~~~.
  • You didn't pass on the previous probation because of your activity, but now that you are active, you'll be worth the patroller spot. EagleIcon AndreEagle17 PS3 Triangle PS3 Cross PS3 Circle 16:03, October 2, 2015 (UTC)
  • Why not? This time, thing will be different. XD Body Armor Android SWAT Cam F Torpedo Android Detonator Android Crate Android 16:18, October 2, 2015 (UTC)
  • Even though you didn't pass probation (activity rather than conduct-based), you became more experienced for it, so I personally don't think you need it again this time around. Sam Talk 16:30, October 2, 2015 (UTC)
  • You've certainly improved, and you would've passed probation before if it hadn't been for the activity issue. Given that you failed before, you have to do it again, but, I'll reccomend two months not three. Leo68 (talk) 18:41, October 2, 2015 (UTC)
  • You are an excellent editor and you're friendly and helpful. You deserve to be a Patroller. Andy A. (Talk | Contributions) 19:38, October 2, 2015 (UTC)
  • You're a great editor, very friendly and helpful. You deserve the spot again. Smashbro8-Sig-pt1 (Smashbro8-Sig-pt2) 20:40, October 2, 2015 (UTC)Smashbro8

Thegtaseeker96 - Patroller

Closed as successful by LS11sVaultBoy (Talk) 22:16, September 27, 2015 (UTC)

Hello everyone! Following Leo68's suggestion I've decided to apply for one of the two vacant Patroller positions. I'm sure most of the users don't know me properly, but I have been editing here since I joined in March 2014, with a total of 3834 edits until now (just a few got reverted by other users). Regarding my work, I'd say that I've been working specially on GTA V articles, revamping a lot of street pages with more pictures/description/map locations and also creating new ones, but now I'm currently focused on business pages, replacing bad and unlicensed pics and adding needed logos. I still contribute fixing, linking or doing some cleanups on random pages that I see around the wikia. About me, I try my best to be civil, calm and respectful with the others and to keep out of edit wars. As a patroller, I will also teach other users about the policies and protect the Wiki from vandals. I hope you consider my efforts when voting. Thanks for reading this! Thegtaseeker96 (talk) 14:35, September 25, 2015 (UTC)



  • As you have mentioned, most users (including me) didn't interact with you very much, but we all see your edits and most of them are very good. I think you can be a good patroller and you don't even need probation in my opinion. It's a "yes" from me. EagleIcon AndreEagle17 PS3 Triangle PS3 Cross PS3 Circle 14:42, September 25, 2015 (UTC)
  • Obviously haven't known you long, but I've seen your contributions, they're really good, hundreds of images uploaded daily, too. You seem to be fully aware of policies and your knowledge is greatly enhancing your quality of work here. You're also learning from your mistakes expeditiously, you're doing great. Good luck :) -- Guy A (Junior) - That Ferrari Guy (talk) 14:44, September 25, 2015 (UTC)
  • Thegtaseeker96 helped me a lot while I was editing all the business articles, by providing some top quality logo pics. His contributions are fantastic and I have no doubt he will be a good patroller. Easy Yes for me. DLVIII Talk 14:46, September 25, 2015 (UTC)
  • Quite suitable to be a patroller. With your good contributions, I'd say Yes. MC My Computer Master Of Ceremonies 14:47, September 25, 2015 (UTC)
  • Clear yes from me. Veteran and valuable editor, helped me a lot with street and businesses articles and knows the policies. More than qualified to be a patroller. DocVinewood (talk) 15:19, September 25, 2015 (UTC)
  • I haven't spoken much with you but as I can see, you have great contributions, have added a lot of images, and are aware of the policies here. You seem to be ready and we'd be glad to welcome you to the game. Smashbro8-Sig-pt1 (Smashbro8-Sig-pt2) 16:04, September 25, 2015 (UTC)Smashbro8
  • Don't know much about you but your edits haven't gone un-noticed. Your edits are consistent and you appear to be aware of the policies. A yes from me. Sam Talk 16:34, September 25, 2015 (UTC)
  • Given that I was the one who was suggested it, I see no reason for you not to be a Patroller. I'm surprised it hasn't happened before now. Leo68 (talk) 18:32, September 25, 2015 (UTC)
  • Spent the last 20 minutes looking through your contributions like a creep :P and what I saw: great edits, great conduct, great attitude. Definitely a yes from me! --Tony42898 (Talker - Blogger - Stalker)-- 21:50, September 27, 2015 (UTC)
  • Closing this as successful. LS11sVaultBoy (Talk) 22:13, September 27, 2015 (UTC)

TAlim 1994 - Patroller

Good day sir/madam, I have an interest in the position of Patroller on this wiki. I have been active since 25 May 2015 on this wiki, but have been editing since 18 December 2012 (on Halo Nation), though I have been most active on this wiki. I have made 511 edits (at the time of writing this message) since joining this wiki: mostly minor spelling or grammatical corrections (a few of these edits were made within a short period of time to the same page due to missed errors in my earlier edit(s)), and a relatively small number of more major page changes. I have not had any warnings and/or blocks, and as far as I am aware, only two of my edits (excluding my personal templates) to date have been undone: one due to ignorance of context, the other due to a contentious trivia article which I am currently seeking to discuss with "RainingPain17" (see my Talk page for more information regarding these reversions). I also seek to help other users where possible. On a personal note, I am keen on the idea of being an observer/arbitrator, as I intend to study to qualify as a lawyer, and I regard this as a test of sorts. I hope that you will approve. Thank you for your time.

TAlim 1994 Konan T-A Lim (talk | contributions) 01:09, September 6, 2015 (UTC)

UPDATE: Due to the contentiousness of my request for promotion, and after much consideration, I have decided to withdraw my request. Please continue voting until the end of the voting period, but even if the vote is successful I do not intend to accept the position at the present time, for the reason stated above. I intend to reapply for the position again at a later date, most likely within two months. If you have any comments on my decision, please leave them on my Talk page.

  • You're edits are good but there aren't that many. You're relatively new as well, so I'd say yes but only after the three month probation. I've also added the info at the top you missed; your name and the position you're applying for. Leo68 (talk) 01:11, September 6, 2015 (UTC)
    • To "Leo68": Thank you for adding the information that I missed; I was having difficulties with my signature, which occupied the majority of my attention, and I forgot to add the title as a result. TAlim 1994 Konan T-A Lim (talk | contributions) 01:24, September 6, 2015 (UTC)
  • As I can see, you are working very well with these corrections and seems that you are very active and well organized. However, we don't know (or maybe I) too much about you, so probation. BTW, I've moved your comment above to look like a response. Keep up the good work. Body Armor Android SWAT Cam F Torpedo Android Dispatch Detonator Android Data Files Crate Android 02:56, September 6, 2015 (UTC)
  • Same reasons as Leo and Camilo. LS11sVaultBoy (Talk) 11:33, September 6, 2015 (UTC)
  • Unqualified. I see his edits but I don't see him using the rollback or giving users warnings/Image policy reminders if he gets promoted. Just because we have an empty gap in the staff, doesn't mean that anyone can get promoted. EagleIcon AndreEagle17 PS3 Triangle PS3 Cross PS3 Circle 14:38, September 6, 2015 (UTC)
  • I'm with what Andre said. I think lately we as staff are forgetting what it takes to be a patroller. Just because he has good edits doesn't mean he can be a patroller. Does he understand the media policy? Does he understand the other policies? I think lately we are rushing to get someone promoted and that's the wrong way to do it. You can't be hungry for staff and promote anyone; it's like promoting a vandal. Smashbro8-Sig-pt1 (Smashbro8-Sig-pt2) 14:41, September 6, 2015 (UTC)Smashbro8
  • Ditto to what Andre said. Monk Talk

  • To all: To those who support my probationary promotion, thank you for your support. To those who do not support my promotion, I have read the media and image policy, along with other policies, and I believe that I understand them well enough, though one can never learn too much. I have not reminded anyone of the policies and guidelines of this wiki for two main reasons: I do not believe that I have the authority to do so, and I do not wish to sound bossy, domineering or commanding beyond my rank. Should I be promoted, I will be much more active in moderating and/or reminding other users of policy, as I will be confident that I have the necessary authority. TAlim 1994 Konan T-A Lim (talk | contributions) 16:46, September 6, 2015 (UTC)
  • I don't think he will be a good patroller AND chat moderator, as he did not revert any edits and/or give reminders to other users, and the fact that he was in chat every time but did not report any misbehaviours makes me think that he may not use his tools after all. I'm very sorry, but until he proves himself, it will be a no from me. MC My Computer Master Of Ceremonies 02:03, September 7, 2015 (UTC)
    • To "MarcusCheeKJ": Is not the purpose of a probationary promotion to give the one being promoted a chance to prove himself/herself? As I have already mentioned in my general comment above, I do not remind people of policy due to my lower rank, and I am reluctant to sound overly domineering for my rank. Perhaps it is due to my family culture, which has a strong Japanese influence, even though my family are mostly Chinese, but I am always somewhat reluctant to seek out and "antagonize" my peers or superiors, unless the misdemeanor is severe and obvious. As for reverting edits, the reason why I have not done any is simple: I have yet to encounter any obvious cases which require reverting. In addition, I am worried that I may accidentally revert useful edits, as I do not know exactly when the bad edit was made, and it is not necessarily the most recent one.

    • There's no harm in reminding other users of policies if the policy is being breached, every user have the right to do so. Also, as mentioned by Jamal, there's no rush to fill in the gap, and in my opinion, this vote was set up too early. I need more time to understand your character, your behavior, and most importantly, are you suitable for the job? In the meantime, you can still patrol around here, looking for vandals and make meaningful edits. And, as I said, until I satisfied, I'm not going to change my mind. My apologies. MC My Computer Master Of Ceremonies 06:52, September 7, 2015 (UTC)
      • I agree with you Marcus. Good point. I also do not see you using your rights TAlim and I also think it is still quite too early for you to apply, having just arrived here for a couple months. To Leo and Vault Boy, I think we need to remember what it takes to be a good patroller and not just pick anyone to do the job and fill in the gaps. We've had a couple staff members that weren't worth our time. McJeff and The Tom would look over certain things that we aren't looking over when giving users rights so that we don't give rights often to the wrong people. We need to remember that. Sorry TAlim.

      • To "Smashbro8", "MarcusCheeKJ": Your apology is readily accepted. I hold no hard feelings if I am not promoted, much as I would like to be, and since everybody keeps mentioning it, I will attempt to overcome my cultural inhibitions to be more authoritative in reminding other users of policies and guidelines. In the event that I am not promoted, I intend to re-attempt a request no earlier than a month after this vote closes. Thank you for your opinion. TAlim 1994 Konan T-A Lim (talk | contributions) 06:41, September 7, 2015 (UTC)
  • I'm sorry, but it is still too early for you to apply for a position here. I would like to see you give more contributions to the wikia before I give you a Yes. Good edits are the most basic thing anyone can do here and are in no way a good enough reason to promote anyone. Maturity and commitment with the wikia are fundamental, specially now, with so many staff members semi-active, including myself. DLVIII Talk 17:04, September 7, 2015 (UTC)
  • Sorry, but seeing the Willard thing, I can assume that I reverted my decision to "Neutral". BTW, the trivia on Willard becomes untrivial since the appearance of Kraken Submersibles, and the Kraken is listed as "Kraken Kraken". Just giving a point of why the Willard trivia is no longer... trivial.

  • You have the right attitude and good intentions to be a patroller, but I believe you still need to get more of a grasp on GTA Wiki before you can earn a definite "yes" from me. "Not yet" for now because it would feel harsh of me to give you a "no" outright. --Tony42898 (Talker - Blogger - Stalker)-- 23:50, September 9, 2015 (UTC) 
  • Sorry, I know we recovered our friendship again, but your attitude seems too keen, you seemed desperate to have a fact, that removed by Monk, re-added to the article, even despite he's in hospital and is completely unaware of the entire situation, not to mention how un-trivial and completely pointless the fact was, and how "intimidating" you was to 3 Bcrats and several other admins/staff, It was getting boring. However, you normally have a good attitude to editing, and have a good knowledge, you're also very formal. I voted neutral.

MarcusCheeKJ - Patroller

Closed as successful by Leo68 (talk) 20:43, July 11, 2015 (UTC)

Hi everyone! I'm Marcus, and I have decided to apply for patroller on this wiki with the recommendation of some of the staffs here. Though I have not been a patroller in any wiki, but I have been a student leader in my school. Leadership is required for postions like these, as for a student leader, you have to use your leadership to lead the school, while you need to use your leadership to lead the wiki in the right direction and prevent vandalism when you are a staff in this wiki. This is what I am determined to do when I become a patroller, and I'll use my tools wisely. Apart from protecting the wiki from vandalism, I would always keep my promise to continue to work on projects that I have not completed (for e.g. Transcripts in GTA IV). I hope that with my leadership skills, I will be able to lead the wiki in the right direction, and free of vandalism. Thanks for reading this! MC (MyComputer) 23:36, July 10, 2015 (UTC)



  • Hard working and has progressed really well since joining us only four months ago. No need for probation, he's experienced enough already. Leo68 (talk) 23:44, July 10, 2015 (UTC)
  • As one of the "sponsors" who has recommended Marcus for the role, it is an obvious yes from me. Actively taking an interest in the inner workings of the wiki since he joined and has been a fast learner of the policies. Like many before him, has effectively been performing a patroller role without the title for a while with vigilant monitoring of recent activity and media uploads. Agreed that no probation necessary. smurfy (coms) 00:18, July 11, 2015 (UTC)

Closed as successful by LS11sVaultBoy (Talk) 10:27, July 10, 2015 (UTC)

Hello everybody. With the recently resignation of Messi1983 and promotion of Smashbro8, I decided to send my request to become the next admin. I don't think I have to introduce myself, since all members of the staff already know me and most of the wikia users (at least the more active ones) too. I have been on this wikia for almost two years now, I have been contributing with the creation of a lot of pages, some minor cleanups and formatting to make the articles more "presentable". I have been less active for the past month, thanks to some personal problems, but I should be back full time now. Despite my lack of active recently, I still make daily visits to the wikia to see if everything is in check. I want to become a admin for multiple reasons, the tools would definetely help me adit this wikia more efficiently, I also would be able to deal with vandals or problematic users better, and so on. I leave my request here and thank you for taking your time to read this. DLVIII Talk 17:20, July 9, 2015 (UTC)



  • 558 really deserves the spot. An active user who uses his rollback tools regularly, why not be promoted to admin? MC (MyComputer) 17:25, July 9, 2015 (UTC)
  • As I said before, 558 has administrative skills, he wasn't promoted before because it was an election between him an Sam, Sam ended up winning, so now it's 558's time.

Smashbro8 - Bureaucrat

Closed as successful by Leo68 (talk) 01:19, July 9, 2015 (UTC)

Hi everyone and fellow wiki friends. After seeing the resignation of one of our earliest bureaucrats, I decided to send this request to be a bureaucrat and help lead the wiki the correct way. Over the few months of me being an admin, I did become less active in actually editing pages, but I continue to show up here everyday to make sure the wiki is running smoothly. I feel as a bureaucrat, I could help the community much more than as an admin, and welcome thousands of new users to the GTA Wiki. Leave your votes and comments below.

  • Everybody here knows that he is my friend but that's not the sole reason, it's because, out of the five admins, Jamal is really the best one, considering that he always block troublesome users and rename/delete pages, he has been the best admin since his promotion, I think he deserves it more than all the others.

Messi1983 - Demotion

Closed as unsuccessful by Leo68 (talk) 13:53, June 25, 2015 (UTC)

It has been put forward that Messi1983 is to be demoted to patroller due to being too inactive to take part in his duties. This vote will be up for 7 days, in which time if Messi is to become active again this vote will be taken down. Please cast your vote below. LS11sVaultBoy (Talk) 12:03, June 18, 2015 (UTC)



  • He usually edits on a 10 day interval which is quite less for a Bureaucrat.Myth(Leave your threats here/Want to Stalk?) 12:11, June 18, 2015 (UTC)
  • Dan still visits regularly and with the number of extremely active staff we now have, there isn't a lot for him to be seen actively doing. That doesn't mean he's not still willing to perform the duties, just that everyone else is beating him to the punch. I don't see the need nor the policy breach to warrant enforced demotion at this time. smurfy (coms) 12:22, June 18, 2015 (UTC)
  • As Leon (I think) suggested, I'd postpone this until 1 August, which would be two months from Dan's inactivity status date. Following my previous experience of demotion situations, I'm treading a lot more carefully this time around, as I don't want to feel like I've "hounded out" staff members. Sam Talk 12:33, June 18, 2015 (UTC)
  • For the past couple of months, Messi contributions almost exclusive boils down to edits in his user page or leaving messages to other users. He honestly doesn't strike me a someone who wants to keep contributing to this wikia all that much. (But that's just my interpretation of the situation, it doesn't mean I'm right) Regardless, I don't think that we should give him a free pass, just because the other members of the staff are already doing a good job in keeping this wikia on a good state. If he is not willing to contribute to this wikia all that much, theres a lot of other users who are, and keeping this users away from becoming patrollers or admins just because one single bureaucrat absence is not missed by the others sounds unfair to me. If he doesn't get demoted, at least move him to inactive or something. - DLVIII Talk 12:41, June 18, 2015 (UTC)
  • I understand Sean's point of view, however, i'm not judging him but his life appears to be too busy to be here, so I agree that he should leave, as wiki could be too stressfull for him. EagleIcon AndreEagle17 PS3 Triangle PS3 Cross PS3 Circle 12:45, June 18, 2015 (UTC)
  • In my opinion demoting him would be excessive now. Like Sam said, I would give him more time. He is a good bureaucrat with experience and I think he can still contribute positively to the wiki. DocVinewood (talk) 14:10, June 18, 2015 (UTC)
  • I don't want to sound harsh or anything, but I have edited here from since August 2013. From that point on to now, Messi hardly ever edited or used his rights. I honestly feel he doesn't take interest in the wiki as a bureaucrat should. Sure he's said he'd show up more often when Tom had given the wiki over to Vault Boy, which he did, but shortly went back to being inactive. I feel the wiki can run smoothly on two bureaucrats and I even wouldn't mind being a b'crat here. I feel giving Messi more time to edit isn't worth it; he's been inactive for over a year before Tom and Ilan resigned. It isn't worth the time. Smashbro8-Sig-pt1 (Smashbro8-Sig-pt2) 19:28, June 18, 2015 (UTC)Smashbro8
  • Well, for now, my vote is neutral because I don't know too much about Messi. It's hard to tell something for cases like this one, so uhh... neutral. Body Armor Android SWAT Cam F Torpedo Android Dispatch Detonator Android Data Files Crate Android 22:19, June 18, 2015 (UTC)
  • Dan isn't active enough to be a Bureaucrat, maybe he could move to Patroller, but when I spoke to Tom around the time he was moved to inactive, the decision would be wait until August 1, so that Dan could make a decision. If we reopen the vote again in August I'd vote in favour if his activity didn't pick up. As stated, he doesn't edit pages, just his user page and talk pages. Leo68 (talk) 18:23, June 19, 2015 (UTC)
  • I am not going to vote, because Dan (Messi) is a good friend of mine. I have no intention of voting to demote him, but I'm not neutral and my vote wouldn't be fair to the community. I did however remove VaultBoy's statement about this vote being open only to staff. Staff only votes should only happen in very, very specific instances, and anyway Wikia Staff wouldn't accept this discussion if it were staff only even if it does pass. Bureaucrats aren't just allowed but supposed to use their better judgment when it comes to things like possible troll or meatpuppet/sockpuppet votes, so that's not a reason to make a vote staff only. Also, remember that this is not a majority vote, since this is a bureaucrat vote it would need a 70% "demote" margin for him to be demoted. Jeff (talk·stalk) 03:29, June 20, 2015 (UTC)
  • I've just looked on the Staff page and the inactive staff section states that bureaucrats and administrators who go inactive are automatically demoted to patroller by policy - no community vote required. In that case, wouldn't Dan automatically have been demoted without the need for this vote? Sam Talk 15:56, June 21, 2015 (UTC)
    • I looked at it. There should be an inactivity of 3 months before listing a staff member as inactive and demoting them to patroller.Myth(Leave your threats here/Want to Stalk?) 16:08, June 21, 2015 (UTC)
      • Bureaucrats can't demote other bureaucrats. They can promote and demote chat mods, patrollers and administrators, but can only demote themselves. So to get a bureaucrat demoted you need to ask Wikia Staff to do it. Wikia Staff won't unless they believe "community consensus" exists to do so - in other words there needs to be a large majority of people in favor of demoting. Over on Bully Fanon Wiki they made us keep a discussion open for 2 weeks over whether to demote the inactive bureaucrat who hadn't logged in for 2 years.
        I also noticed that VaultBoy demoted most of the inactive administrators/patrollers against policy and without holding a discussion on whether to do so, fwiw. Jeff (talk·stalk) 19:17, June 21, 2015 (UTC)
        • Jeff, he was talking to other staff members whether or not he should demote the inactive staff. EagleIcon AndreEagle17 PS3 Triangle PS3 Cross PS3 Circle 19:40, June 21, 2015 (UTC)
        • As it stands yes 5, no 3, 2 neutral. The vote will remain open until Thursday but for now it stands as successful. I still stand by the statement of postponing the vote until August. Leo68 (talk) 05:03, June 22, 2015 (UTC)
          • Sorry Leo but you are wrong. As it stands, the vote is NOT successful. 70% is required to pass - even excluding the neutrals 5/8 is only 62.5%. smurfy (coms) 05:15, June 22, 2015 (UTC)
      • The vote is unsuccessful but I've told Tom that the vote will reopen in August if Dan's activity does not pick up, as this was agreed arrangement before the vote was requested. Leo68 (talk) 13:53, June 25, 2015 (UTC)
