Community Noticeboard Glitch?
I don't even know what's goin' on. I placed my vote on the community noticeboard and a thing happened where the entire page is blank. I'm going to contact Wikia about this.
Were you using source or visual editor? If it was the source it might have broken part of the code, if not, youprobably want to contact wikia. Leo68 (talk) 20:33, October 25, 2015 (UTC)
- I was using the classic editor. Cam confirmed that the glitch happens sometimes, so that alleviates my worries. Definitely, I am contacting Wikia about this.
Request for Promotion
Good day, I have made a request for promotion to the position of Patroller. I have left this message to all GTA Wiki Staff and posted a copy of my application below for convenience. Please note that the timestamp on this message is current at the time of posting this message, not at the time of posting the Request for Promotion.
P.S.: I apologize if you have already responded on the Requests for Promotion page; this message was sent to all members of the GTA Wiki Staff, regardless of if they have already voted.
TAlim 1994 - Patroller (re-application)
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.
Hey Leo, just to tell you that I blocked Universetwisters for 6 months since he can't stop being so rude towards staff members, today he said that we are all useless and this wiki focus on fanfictions. I myself doubt there's anything else unofficial in this wiki for him to almost say that this place is full of shit, and I couldn't stand him anymore. AndreEagle17 21:52, October 30, 2015 (UTC)
Really? he was just being honest about this place not having exactly always the true information. He wanted to make this wiki into an actual wiki, with actual information and not crackpot theories. RandomGTAGamer (talk) 22:01, October 30, 2015 (UTC)
I feel the ban is justified, but maybe 3 months, not 6, because it's his first. Leo68 (talk) 22:24, October 30, 2015 (UTC)
- I reduced his ban to 1 month, he was indeed in the wrong by directly insulting a staff member, so he deserves to be blocked for the sake of discipline, but 6 months is far too much, like you said is still his first one. DLVIII Talk 22:28, October 30, 2015 (UTC)
Hey Leo, could you get in chat? I want to tell you a weekend story xD AndreEagle17 20:24, November 1, 2015 (UTC)
I'll be in there in a few minutes. Leo68 (talk) 20:27, November 1, 2015 (UTC)
- Right now I can talk :) AndreEagle17 00:24, November 2, 2015 (UTC)
- I'll sign on once you're in. Leo68 (talk) 01:34, November 2, 2015 (UTC)
It's all pretty much self-explanatory .
I see, but Doc beat me to it. Already blocked. Leo68 (talk) 00:13, November 2, 2015 (UTC)
I hope not. Gruelling schedule, I'd rather go out all together, so we can focus on the league. Leo68 (talk) 23:45, November 6, 2015 (UTC)
Debatable. He's a frequent scapegoat, and sacking a long term manager could have an adverse effect, like United when Ferguson retired. Leo68 (talk) 19:01, November 16, 2015 (UTC)
Category problemGood day Leon, I have a problem inadvertently created by myself: I have created several redirect pages and categorized them into this category, but unfortunately the category is a deleted category that I somehow still managed to find when searching for categories while creating the redirects using the VisualEditor. Should I make the aforementioned category a redirect page, or should I do something else? Also, what can and should be done about the "deleted" category that showed up on the VisualEditor category search engine? I have attached an example of the problem that caused me to categorize the pages into the deleted category.
I'm inactive right now, so you'll want to speak to Tom or Jamal, sorry. Leo68 (talk) 06:20, November 12, 2015 (UTC)
Hey Leo, good to have you back. This place wouldn't be the same without you, so please, consider not resigning, I'd prefer for you to stay. But it's your life :) Monk Talk 08:18, November 16, 2015 (UTC)
Thanks Monk, just wish I was staying put for different reasons. Leo68 (talk) 18:56, November 16, 2015 (UTC)
Hey Leo, I sent an email to email@example.com but I don't know if that's your e-mail, but anyway, what happened? AndreEagle17 15:08, November 16, 2015 (UTC)
My doctor told me I can't drive anymore. I've had to quit work, but it means more time here. Leo68 (talk) 18:56, November 16, 2015 (UTC)
- Shit. What a bastard that is. Sorry to hear that Leon. I hope you manage to find something else soon, in the meantime you've got us here. :) Sam Talk 22:39, November 16, 2015 (UTC)
- Me and the wife decided we'll sell the Charger, because we only need the one car now, so I see a PS4 in my purchase plans, probably Boxing Day or January sales. No way we'd sell the GTO ;) Leo68 (talk) 06:08, November 17, 2015 (UTC)
- Oooooh noooo!!!!! :( that's terrible, Leo, you're one of the three best drivers of this wiki and that just happened? Man, that's so sad :'( I'm sorry... But at least you're keeping the GTO, this car is like, part of you... Well, there's really no way you can drive? Not even if you get a hand-throttle adaptation/mod? AndreEagle17 19:13, November 24, 2015 (UTC)
- If I'm on a private course or a parking lot sure, but not on the road :( Leo68 (talk) 04:26, November 25, 2015 (UTC)
Why not, I'll only be in for about half an hour anyway. Leo68 (talk) 07:29, November 17, 2015 (UTC)
Back in. Leo68 (talk) 05:02, November 25, 2015 (UTC)
Hey Leo. GTASuperFan has since created 25 accounts, I've blocked all of them, and their IPs, but he's somehow still able to create new accounts. I've told Wikia, they need to respond yet, is there anything you can do in the meantime? 25 accounts is stupid, in fact, it's affecting my heart. Genuinely affecting me badly, I told him to give up in Chat; he just spams the chat out with stupid numbers and symbols. Cam and Myth have been great to ban all the accounts from chat, and I've had to block all the accounts. But someone needs to put a stop to this NOW. Monk Talk 17:03, November 28, 2015 (UTC)
Hi, I'm from the Mafia Wiki, another gaming wiki, and that guy had been causing problems for me for months before I finally figured out how to stop him. Apparently he changes his IP address every time he gets blocked, so that's how he's able to create new accounts. What I did is known as a range block; you can read the official help page for that here. Basically that's a way of blocking all the IP addresses he can possibly use.
Here are the IP address ranges you'll need to block:
I know someone has contacted Wikia about this, but they said that the IP address he edits from has too large of a range for this, so they probably won't be of much help to you. The ones I listed above have only 255 IP addresses within each range, making only slightly more than 1000 total addresses to block, so that's not too bad.
