Hi, welcome to GTA Wiki. Thanks for contributing to the GTA Clone page, and for taking interest in the wiki. Please leave a message on my talk page if I can help with anything, or as alternatives, leave a post on a forum, or refer to the Help pages. -- The Tom (Talk) 10:31, April 24, 2011
I've never heard of Gangstar but i think the term GTA clone is widely over used and games with the slightest similarity seem to be put into the category. And i think the car the Admiral is based on will be on the page. Tom Talk 11:50, April 24, 2011 (UTC)
How exactly is mentioning that the Turismo in GTAIV is based off of the real life 360 mondea irrelevant. There are entire talk pages of people arguing about the real life counter parts of cars. And you are trying to get me in trouble for posting a simple fact? If you really had a problem with me posting a picture of my parent's car you could have said something to me rather then running to the editor to get me in trouble.Gtacrzy 07:53, May 27, 2011 (UTC)
The inclusion of the picture is relevant and is posted because unlike most of the vehicles that GTA's cars are based off of a 360 isn't exactly a common sight. And it isn't showing off because all the caption says is that it's the car that it's based off of, not "A picture of my ferrari." If any picture on that page is irrelevant it would be the picture of the coquette.Gtacrzy 03:57, May 30, 2011 (UTC)
No I didn't include a picture of a Viper for the Banshee or a murciealago for the infernus, simply cause the infernus doesn't look like a Muciealago, and My parents don't own a Viper.—Preceding unsigned comment added by Gtacrzy (talk • contribs) Please remember to sign your talk page messages with ~~~~.
@Gtacrzy So just because ur parents have a car u post? There are a number of cars in the entire GTA looking identical to real life cars. And what Coquette? If u were talking about the one on the Turismo page it is the Mob version of the Turismo which is also called a Turismo. I have GTA IV and Chinatown Wars too, I noe. The Infernus looks similar to the Murcielago in front and Zonda at the bak, so why didnt u post both? Bullet GT looks like Ford GT, and Turismo also incorperates other car looks. Just post ur photo somewhere else. GTANiKo 04:32, May 30, 2011 (UTC)
If you had read what I posted earlier I am aware that other cars have real life counterparts, the picture of the 360 is simply because it's a once in a blue moon sight. And yet you say it's irrelevant. Why even say that it looks like the 360 if you don't want people to see what the 360 looks like?—Preceding unsigned comment added by Gtacrzy (talk • contribs) Please remember to sign your talk page messages with ~~~~.
@Gtacrzy. I noe. Not only me says irrelevance. Admin said so too. And if u post on the Turismo page, other pages don't have it (unfair). And yes, i did read ur post, i am asking u that question. And dude, if people want to see what the 360 Modena looks like just click the links to the Wiki given. Yes, I noticed the link was not added, so I did, as do other GTAWikia pages do. GTANiKo 13:55, May 30, 2011 (UTC)
I have seen the cars and they look alike and calling this irrelevant is uncivil--Owen1983 14:36, May 30, 2011 (UTC)
That's fine I just added the photo cause ferrari 360 link didn't redirect to anything and I thought people should see how they were similar. If the page has a working link I'll leave the picture off of it. Gtacrzy 14:57, May 30, 2011 (UTC)
Complaints (section II)Edit
Now i clarify myself, the 360 is NOT irrelevant, but the photo is like, the only photo of a real life car on the wiki (shud be). If u want this kind of system, sure, just add the photos of the similar cars on all other pages (eg. Infernus with Murcielago, Burrito with Volks Transporter, etc.) suggest this to the admins. @gtacrzy the link is not valid? If u can, then pls add the correct link of wikipedia. GTANiKo 04:40, May 31, 2011 (UTC)
I could easily get pictures of cars for the pages but I only posted the 360 cause it seemed like one of the few that wouldn't result in a full scale talk page debate. lol. But I will get on the task of getting a real life photo for every car in Gta 4 if everyone having it would result in it being ok to stay posted. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Gtacrzy (talk • contribs) Please remember to sign your talk page messages with ~~~~.
Thx, as long as all the near identical cars have the pictures and u do not post copyrighted photos, im fine, hav u contacted admins? GTANiKo 11:42, June 1, 2011 (UTC)
The Dukes of Hazzard and Gtacrzy thing is basically them both been childish and undoing each others edits, even if there is no problem with them, i'm not sure how the thing started but Gtacrzy vandalized The Dukes of Hazzard's userpage so TDoH did the same in retaliation and its just taken off from there, just stay out of it, there both probably children just trying to sound cool, especially Gtacrzy with his long list of cars owed which is obviously crap. Tom Talk 10:32, June 2, 2011 (UTC)
@The Tom Could it be the fact that TDoH removed the real life photos, and then conflict arose? Sry for being xtra, didn't read properly, but u gave Gtacrzy permission to post real life photos rite? GTANiKo 10:40, June 2, 2011 (UTC)
Hopefully. But I hope the images were not taken from websites. GTANiKo 10:52, June 2, 2011 (UTC)
i appreciate your post on my Talk Page. It's odd to think we started out arguing over a picture of a real car. and now you are helping me keep them up on the wiki. Exotic Owner 17:38, June 2, 2011 (UTC)
No problem, but u should stop arguing with The Dukes of Hazzard, cause there will be no good thing out of it, just keep on your contributions to the wiki. What are the pages u have uploaded real life pictures with so far? GTANiKoTalk 07:30, June 3, 2011 (UTC)
I did stop. I said F it to trying to fix his grammar mistakes and wen back to posting photos, then other users started fixing his mistakes and yet he continued to blame me. I honestly can't believe that people trust him to fix grammar, look at his profile page. For god sake, the man spelled engine wrong!Exotic Owner $ Stop Talking 17:33, June 9, 2011 (UTC)
Speaking of mistakes, please make sure the grammar of the real life photos are correct before posting them, thanks GTANiKoTalk 09:20, June 22, 2011 (UTC)
Hey man whave you heard anything about Rockstar ending the GTA series in general?—Preceding unsigned comment added by BigJ1992 (talk • contribs) Please remember to sign your talk page messages with ~~~~.
Have I mentioned such a thing? And no, I've heard of rumours of GTA: SA being remade 4 PS3 and GTA V coming next year. And pls leave your signature GTANiKoTalk 16:28, June 24, 2011 (UTC)
Man how can i get a "User box" on this wiki? User GTGTAGG
Really? Do I just request like that? But it is unlikely people may vote for me GTANiKoTalk 10:41, June 29, 2011 (UTC)
"do you think the rate of updating the pages is too much? I mean, I feel uncomfortable with the Recent Wiki Activity page dominated by me" - Why would ask this? Feel free to do as many edits as you like, aslong as they're good edits and do not violate the rules, then no one has a problem with it. Dan the Man 1983 19:20, June 30, 2011 (UTC)
Thanks :) GTANiKoTalk 12:37, July 1, 2011 (UTC)
Speaking only for myself, if you applied for administrator I'd vote for you without hesitation, and I'm the "bad cop" admin. And to answer the question you left on my userpage, don't worry at all about having lots of edits and having them all over the recent edits page, that's not a problem at all. Recent edits can display up to the latest 500 and I haven't yet seen this wiki get up to 500 in one day. McJeff (talk this way)/(stalk this way) 05:31, July 2, 2011 (UTC)
Thanks for the info BigJ1992 16:39, July 6, 2011 (UTC)BigJ1992
How'd you put userboxes on your profile, man? Haruhi Suzumiya 09:55, July 7, 2011 (UTC)
Just create a page entitled User Talk:GTANiKo/Archive 1 and cut and paste everything in your talk page and put it there, then leave a link to it on your talk page. Then if your talk page starts to get long again create Archive 2 and so on. Tom Talk 13:28, July 9, 2011 (UTC)
Bunny says Edit
Okay, thanks for making me aware. Yeah, I remember when this Wiki was nice and quiet... now, all kinds of crap's going on. Bad crap! I was actaully thinking about dropping out as an admin because it's not fun, anymore. I became an admin because I thought it would be fun. Needless to say, it's alot different then what I thought it'd be. The truth is, if I knew it was going to be like this, I probably wouldn't have asked to become one. Bunny J. (Talk) 15:26, July 11, 2011 (UTC)
If the problem is when you upload it, it will turn into the old image with the white background, you can try deleting the old image, then upload the new image with the transparent background and see if it'll come up transparent. I say it's worth a try, but whatever you want to do. Bunny J. (Talk) 17:43, July 12, 2011 (UTC)
are there warnings here like kingdom hearts wiki? John.olisa 15:40, July 14, 2011 (UTC)
I understand that those speeds may seem accurate but lets be real here for a second, all of the speeds originally posted have been accepted by many for quite some time before all the other speeds have been added. I'm realistically looking at the fact, particularly cars like the Esperanto, Marbelle, and Emperor due to the fact I love to drive them in game that there is no way that the Marbelle does 161 mph. Heck, my Grand Marquis I drive barely does 115 mph (that being in real life), so I think a Ford Granada (of which the Marbelle is based) won't even do that. I understand GTA4.net does provide good information but realistically there would be some type of speed governance on the vehicles. Truthfully I feel the speeds are exaggerated since many cars have close top speeds but they all can leave each other in the dust on straightaways. A Emperor (rated 151 mph) vs. a Marbelle (rated 161 mph) doesn't seem to add up. The Emperor will go faster and has a greater top speed. I'm not trying to be rude but if you have the ability to get online and play with people who won't blow you up and stuff then spawn a Marbelle and Emperor online (I can send you a map on specific locations if you want) and then do a head to head flat out race around the airport runways. The Emperor will win, and it is rated slower, but it still will go faster than the Marbelle and tops out at a higher speed, so I see the believable and original 80 mph for the Marbelle and 87 mph for the Emperor. You can tell when the top speed is met because the vehicle will downshift into its final gear and will not appear to go any higher on the RPM scale. Feel free to try this, all I'm saying is personal testing is the best way to prove things.
Messege from me:Get the gta game going GTGTAGG
Man thanx for your help with userboxes. Im a fan of radio los santos and im proud to be serbian,but i dont know how to make a userbox template for them!
I just had an idea. If you want the "g" without the white background, why not crop it? I realized that the "g" is more of a rectangle standing up then a g. You could crop it and then upload it again. It should also appear bigger, too. Bunny J. (Talk) 16:30, August 1, 2011 (UTC)
Hi, you've been inactive for quite a while and I'm just wondering if everything is okay? Dan the Man 1983 11:51, September 20, 2011 (UTC)

Why in hell did you delete my artical about Ace Liquor which is clearly in the GTA V trailer? You deleted my mount chiliad and red county articals as well, however the deletion of the ace liquor artical was compleatly BS as that artical gave an accurate discription of that buissness with NO embellishments what so ever. This is not the first time my articals have been deleted and I feel like I am being unfairly targeted as you have no excuss for deleting my articals that are helping add to your wiki and are factual contributations. Go PISS OFF!!!
Hey Niko, it's already December 24 where I'm at, I'm going to be inactive today and on December 25, but I would like to wish you and the rest of the staff an advance Merry Christmas. 涼宮ハルヒ(Suzumiya Haruhi) 17:18, December 23, 2011 (UTC)
Does gta liberty city stories, and vice city stories have a interiors universe? and also where abouts is ken rosenbergs office interior located in gta vice city?
Hey! I have a question I want to ask:
I notice many users are using userboxes in one line for the userboxes so I want to also use one. How do you put a line of userboxes? Thank You! PatTag2659 00:17, February 25, 2012 (UTC)
Hi GTANiKo. I apologize if this comes off as rude but allow me to be direct. If you're not planning to continue editing here, you'll have to give up your staff rights. GTA Wiki is only allowed a limited amount of staff and so we can't allow inactive users to keep the rights. If you don't respond in a week's worth of time to this you'll be demoted. If you decide to come back later you can ask for repromotion. Jeff (talk|stalk) 23:38, March 31, 2012 (UTC)
