Why are you removing images that you added? Tom Talk 10:56, October 6, 2013 (UTC)


Can you tell me why are you redirecting the Los Santos pages at different universes? --Thomas0802 • (talkedits) 23:29, October 27, 2013 (UTC)

What? I don't recall doing that - DocVinewood (talk) 11:21, October 28, 2013 (UTC)

No need to add your name to every file

Hi, not sure what you are trying to achieve, but there is really no point in adding your username to the description of every single file. Wikia already keeps track of that automatically - One can just go to the "File History" and see who uploaded the file. Also people can upload new versions of files so you might not always be the owner.

Anyway the main reason I am leaving this message is that there are some people like me that use RSS feeds to see changes in the wiki, and I got flooded with all those changes you did to add your name to those tons of files (I thought it was spam/vandalism at first). I know you probably dont mean wrong so wanted to let you know, before you end up on people's ignore lists.

Thanks! Robert (TrevorChop)

Hi, I was just adding the licensing templates to all the images I captured & uploaded to the Wikia, to follow the rules, adding my username was just a copy-paste formula I used before the licensing because I took the time to make all these images and share them with GTA Wikia. Sorry to hear that you've been flooded with these changes, I wasn't aware of that (since the changes didn't appear in the latest Wiki Activity). Since I still have to add the licensing template to some images, will you still get the messages if I edit the pics with just the template and without the description? Again, I'm sorry for that, it wasn't my intention at all.DocVinewood (talk) 13:39, November 21, 2013 (UTC)

Robert, the reason he did that is to try and hide some of his earlier edits that are lowering the quality of this wikia. You are wasting your time, no point in trying to reason with him. See my message below.


sorry for earlier i shouldnt have been rude.


Just wanted to make a suggestion, every page has a "talk" tab which can be used to discuss the page. Maybe before editing a page, use the talk section to get opinion from other editors on whether your change adds anything of value to that page, and if they OK it then go ahead and make the changes?

please dont take this personally just trying to help you, us the readers, and wikia :)

Thank you, Todd

RE:Clappers page & zak27

Added better image there. I already left him a message DocVinewood oh and please add a signature after you left a message so I can know that it came from you okay, thanks! Cloudkit01 (talk) 21:55, November 29, 2013 (UTC)


As I told cloudkit I have added image there.

I think my image looks better.

Sorry didnt mean to get into an edit war, just wanted to put in a better image

also in the meantime somene else edited it so i couldnt undo

But now I think admin sorted it out and the new image is there

Zak27 (talk) 21:58, November 29, 2013 (UTC)

That image didn't look better at all. Anyway, I had added a pic and updated the info already, and you know it, but you kept reverting my edits. I guess you're mad because your edit in the T-Shirts page was also reverted, get over it, it was done for a reason.DocVinewood (talk) 22:04, November 29, 2013 (UTC)

The image I added is more vivid. And I have no idea what this has to do with t shirts

Zak27 (talk) 22:07, November 29, 2013 (UTC)

using copyrighted photos

Hello, wanted to complain that a photo you added to the "Clappers" page on november 29th was taken from here:

Please ask for permission if using photos from other sites. or AT LEAST give credit to the site you took image from.

Dontstealimages (talk)

Hi, that photo was added by user zak27. I had already posted another picture taken by me and edited the page, but he kept reverting my edit and adding that image instead. I just finally added that pic in the gallery (I didn't upload it, it was in GTA Wikia already anyway) wishing he would stop with the edit war. You can check it in the Clappers page edit history. Cheers.DocVinewood (talk) 10:12, December 2, 2013 (UTC)

Well it said in the history of the page that you added the image...anyway I dont really care anymore, you can even keep that image if you want, just please give credit if you use any more images from the site in the future. Thanks.

Dontstealimages (talk) 10:20, December 2, 2013 (UTC)

Can you even read? I didn't upload that image. I never wanted to use it, since I think it's a very bad image anyway. Not interested at all in keeping it, thanks.DocVinewood (talk) 10:22, December 2, 2013 (UTC)

The wikia says you added the photo, see this sreenshot

Anyway like I said I dont mind, just I'd recommend if you use images from other sites in the future than cite the source, thanks Dontstealimages (talk) 10:36, December 2, 2013 (UTC)

Now I'm convinced you're just a troll, probably the same that also posted nonsense in my talk page lately.

File History: Zak27 (uploaded November 29)

Yeah... no matter how hard you try, facts are still against you. Troll.DocVinewood (talk) 11:21, December 2, 2013 (UTC)

I just came here asking not to use my images without giving credit, so not sure how this makes me a troll. Also I just checked the history of this talk page and looks like it's not the first time you are using other people's images without permission?

Anyway stlil not sure why you somehow make me the "bad guy", but I'm done arguing here. Goodbye. Dontstealimages (talk) 11:39, December 2, 2013 (UTC)

Images removed?

Just a heads up - not sure if related to the edit wars with that zak27, but many people have been removing all your images from pages. Ill make a list of pages later, maybe admin can revert (too many to undo manually) Rgtroger (talk) 22:32, December 6, 2013 (UTC)

Hmm, I know it's the same guy with different accounts, and me and other users and admins have been reverting his edits in the last days. Thanks for letting me know if I missed something.DocVinewood (talk) 22:37, December 6, 2013 (UTC)

Image policy

Please remember to license the images when uploading. --Thomas0802 • (talkedits) 12:29, December 8, 2013 (UTC)

I always do. If you're talking about the image I added to the Oriental Theater page, I just added it to the gallery, I didn't upload it.DocVinewood (talk) 12:45, December 8, 2013 (UTC)

Rank page

Hi DocVinewood! It's Smashbro8. I just wanted to say thanks a lot for helping out by adding links to the Rank page! That's a lot of work and I couldn't do it by myself. Again, thanks a lot! Smashbro8 (talk) 21:42, December 8, 2013 (UTC)Smashbro8

No prob, cheers mate. DocVinewood (talk) 22:31, December 8, 2013 (UTC)

Merry Christmas!!!

Hey man! Smashbro8 here! I just wanted to wish you a Merry Christmas!!! I may not be online tomorrow so I just wanted to wish you and other editors a Merry Christmas before I forget. Enjoy your day tomorrow! Smashbro8 (talk) 03:10, December 25, 2013 (UTC)Smashbro8

Fixing Image Logos

Hey, since your great with images I wanted to ask if you could fix the Los Santos Lifeguard logo to get rid of the background and the same with the San Andreas Highway Patrol. I've tried but have been unsuccessful figured you would have a better chance since your better at dealing with images. Thanks! --06abrahb (talk) 11:38, January 5, 2014 (UTC)

I Need An Image

Hey DocVinewood! Smashbro8 here. Can you upload a picture of the Paleto Forest Sawmill, the abandoned sawmill featured in Lamar Down? I would grately appreciate it! Thanks! Smashbro8 (talk) 12:55, January 6, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

No the pics are excellent! Thanks! I'll message you if I see anymore pages that need images. Smashbro8 (talk) 01:15, January 7, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8


Hi Doc, thanks for contributing to the GTA Songs Wiki. --Thomas0802 • (talkedits) 14:28, January 19, 2014 (UTC)

Designer Slave

Hey DocVinewood! Smashbro8 here! I think that a page on Designer Slave should be made since we both know that one exists in Vinewood. Let me know if you agree or not and I'll create the page. Smashbro8 (talk) 23:22, January 24, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

Done! Just need some images! Do you have any available? Smashbro8 (talk) 23:55, January 24, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8


Hey there Doc. There is an open spot for a new patroller so feel free to make a request. LS11sVaultBoy (Talk) 10:04, January 26, 2014 (UTC)

Rex's Diner

Hey DocVinewood! Smashbro8 here! Sorry that I named Red's Diner incorrectly. I was being chased by the police when I spotted the building and I didn't have time to observe the diner's name correctly (if I did they would kill me and I would have to drive back to the diner). Hopefully The Tom renames it to it's correct name. Smashbro8 (talk) 19:04, January 26, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

Thanks a lot pal for looking at it that way! Smashbro8 (talk) 19:59, January 26, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8


Hi. Is there a way to recieve notifications from people who've edited your page - either by adding images, editing text et cetra? Grand Theft Editor (talk) 09:31, February 4, 2014 (UTC)

Big House Storage Inc.

Hey DocVinewood! Smashbro8 here! Thanks for noting that. I do know that the LSIA is a district and has warehouses (mostly in Banning), but GrandTheftEditor did not say it is exactly in the LSIA district. He said it's under the La Puerta Freeway near the airport district, which is why I removed it from the airport page. I do need to get on my GTA V and see if I can find it. Let me know if you find it too! Smashbro8-Sig-pt1 (Smashbro8-Sig-pt2) 16:09, February 5, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

RE: New Los Santos montage

Sorry about my late reply. Thanks for trying to help out, but - for me at least - the image is appearing again. Tom Talk 22:44, February 9, 2014 (UTC)

Fire Truck

Hey DocVinewood! I saw the pictures you put up of the Ambulance and I love them! However, we have an issue. There was a Fire Truck picture I put up (I didn't upload it though) and now it is gone. I figured maybe you can upload a nice picture of an in-game Fire Truck instead of the one in the garage picture shown on the page. Thanks! Smashbro8-Sig-pt1 (Smashbro8-Sig-pt2) 16:02, February 16, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

OK awesome! I can't wait to see those! Smashbro8-Sig-pt1 (Smashbro8-Sig-pt2) 16:07, February 16, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

Discount Store

Hey DocVinewood! I just wanted to let you know that not all the Discount Stores are Checkout! stores. In fact, the one in Paleto Bay says Discount Store. Smashbro8-Sig-pt1 (Smashbro8-Sig-pt2) 16:54, February 22, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

Yep it's already on the Checkout! page and too late. Maybe you can just put up pictures of the Discount Store on the Checkout page! Also, can you find images for these business pages I made: Union Grain Supply Inc. (their storage tanks are off the intersection to Grapeseed on the Senora Freeway), Limit (should be on the doors of some businesses), Golden Buns Bakery and Famous Hamburgers (these two are in Paleto Bay)? Smashbro8-Sig-pt1 (Smashbro8-Sig-pt2) 17:54, February 22, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

Hey did you reply back to my message above? If so, I did not get it. Smashbro8-Sig-pt1 (Smashbro8-Sig-pt2) 18:41, February 22, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

Okay sounds great! Is there anything I can help you with? Smashbro8-Sig-pt1 (Smashbro8-Sig-pt2) 18:47, February 22, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

Famous Hamburgers

Hey DocVinewood! I too have looked for it and could not find it. I'll continue to look for it but a picture of the sign would be great for now. I figured the restaurant is close by since the sign is there, but maybe it is a billboard and is in Los Santos. I'll take a look. Just take a picture of its sign. Also, one of your userboxes says error if you haven't noticed yet. Smashbro8-Sig-pt1 (Smashbro8-Sig-pt2) 21:41, March 2, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

Thanks! And it's your first userbox that says how long you've been on GTA Wiki. It says "Unrecognised error" or something like that. Smashbro8-Sig-pt1 (Smashbro8-Sig-pt2) 22:14, March 2, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

You're welcome! Smashbro8-Sig-pt1 (Smashbro8-Sig-pt2) 22:29, March 2, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8


Hey DocVinewood. It's Smashbro8 here. I was wondering if you can add a picture of the Journey in GTA V. Thanks! Smashbro8-Sig-pt1 (Smashbro8-Sig-pt2) 21:13, March 8, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

Okay sounds perfect. A picture of the Stratum would do too, but I don't want to stress you out with this photo capturing and uploading thing. Smashbro8-Sig-pt1 (Smashbro8-Sig-pt2) 21:22, March 8, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

Ha, you're like me! I don't like too much of the countryside. Not only is there very little to do, but all the excitement is in Los Santos. Plus, when driving around in Los Santos, you find buildings you didn't even see before, or businesses that made a return without even knowing. I found a Hawaiian Snow in Alta the other day! Smashbro8-Sig-pt1 (Smashbro8-Sig-pt2) 21:35, March 8, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

Hey dude nice edits you make in gta vehicles image very cool the guys Twinbross22 and Switch101 make this too, you utilize a elgato gaming capture to have images with tis quality ?


Hey DocVinewood! The Voltic page's main picture is pretty poor. I was wondering if you have any images of the car to upload. Smashbro8-Sig-pt1 (Smashbro8-Sig-pt2) 20:28, March 10, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

Oh I didn't even know you liked that game. That game is beyond the best action games I ever played! I miss playing it, even missing the parts where I was so terrified and the parts where I had to fight the Infected. I can tell you though, I hated Clickers (clicking ones) so much. I hated them more than Bloaters (giant ones), if you know what I am talking about. Smashbro8-Sig-pt1 (Smashbro8-Sig-pt2) 20:54, March 10, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

Hunters aren't that bad, except in Winter. Ellie is like a weakling towards Hunters. Almost every Hunter I attacked grabbed my and tried to choke me. Also, it is easy to spot Hunters using Joel's hearing. I often have to more use hearing on the Infected though. I remember the Underground Tunnel (the last time the Infected appear in the game) where every member of the Infected was there. I was so terrified!! Smashbro8-Sig-pt1 (Smashbro8-Sig-pt2) 21:06, March 10, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

Oh I haven't played on any other difficulty besides Easy. I don't think I want to try Survivor, cause some parts on Easy weren't easy. Most of the hard areas were areas that were infested with nothing but Clickers such as Downtown and Graveyard, however, I know that that the whole Winter episode was hard. The Underground Tunnel and Firefly Lab weren't easy either. Smashbro8-Sig-pt1 (Smashbro8-Sig-pt2) 21:28, March 10, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8


Hey DocVinewood! What's going on with the pictures that they're being re-added to their correct pages? Is it that glitch with the images again? Also, did you get my last message concerning The Last of Us. Smashbro8-Sig-pt1 (Smashbro8-Sig-pt2) 22:26, March 15, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8 

Oh ok! And yes I heard about the new DLC. I want to get it though I'm going to miss playing as Joel. Also are you serious?! They're making a movie based on the game?! I got to see that! Smashbro8-Sig-pt1 (Smashbro8-Sig-pt2) 17:00, March 16, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

I know right! I hope they don't ruin the game with the movie because TLOU is among the best games I've ever played. I'm tempted to replay it. Hopefully the movie will be good like the Need For Speed movie. Smashbro8-Sig-pt1 (Smashbro8-Sig-pt2) 17:27, March 16, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

Sorry just saw the message, but isn't it better than no images, PS thanks for changing some of the pictures Abdullahzahran (talk) 16:18, March 19, 2014 (UTC)

Land Act Dam

Hey DocVinewood. I have the picture but the original version of it should be deleted so I can upload it again. But then again I just studied I can simply rename the picture. Smashbro8-Sig-pt1 (Smashbro8-Sig-pt2) 18:29, March 20, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

Ok I got it done. Thanks! Smashbro8-Sig-pt1 (Smashbro8-Sig-pt2) 18:42, March 20, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

Wikipedia Links

Hey DocVinewood! Thanks for that! I'll try it next time I find it's necessary to add a Wikipedia link to a page. Smashbro8-Sig-pt1 (Smashbro8-Sig-pt2) 01:41, March 23, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

Police Maverick

Hey DocVinewood. I think a new picture of the Police Maverick should be uploaded. The main photo looks horrible to me. Do you have any pictures of them? Smashbro8-Sig-pt1 (Smashbro8-Sig-pt2) 04:43, March 26, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

Ok sounds good! Smashbro8-Sig-pt1 (Smashbro8-Sig-pt2) 16:18, March 27, 2014 (UTC)Smashbro8

Sabre Turbo pics

Hello, Doc. The Sabre Turbo page is definitely in need of some new GTA V images. It doesn't even have a rear image! You are good at taking pics of vehicles, so it would be great if you helped. Thanks. Carl Johnson Jr. (talk) 14:35, March 30, 2014 (UTC)

Bullet Images

Hi, DocVinewood. I notice that you have been replacing some images with others with better quality, so could get a better image for the Bullet?  That one seems to blurred to me.

Also, is there any way that you could get some pictures for the heist pages? With the exception of the Blitz Play and The Paleto Score heists, all the others are missing.

I know that i never asked you anything, but since i don't have any idea of how to get my own images, i thought i could ask you. Anyway, thanks for the great work you have been doing on the wikia! 558050 Talk 19:29, 03/04/2014 (UTC)
