The following is a list of Policies applied on the GTA Wiki.

All users, regardless of status and position, are expected to follow them. None of these policies are ever set in stone, however. Anyone who disagrees with a policy is welcome to suggest changes onto an admin's talk page or on the Community Noticeboard. Bureaucrats and Administrators may issue blocks in the case of repeated denial of Policies. If you're unsure and you have any questions regarding any policy, then please contact a Staff member, as we do our best to help editors.

  • The GTA Wiki:
    • Has certain steps on what to do during a dispute.
    • Is not censored. Profanity in articles should be done only in an encyclopedic manor.
