Locking down promotions
Hey Dan, what do you think of maybe locking down the Promotion page, since we have 3 b-crats, 4 administrators and 8 patrollers? I don't think we need any more staff. BTW I locked the promotions page so that no one filed a "if they're thinking of stopping promotions I better apply right now" promotion request, but if we decide not to do that we can just unprotect.

- I wanted to be the last patroller to become admin before this happened, but if it is alright to do this, I won't preveil.
Promotion Page locked up
I want to be promoted soon, too. If I would be a new admin, Ilan could become a new b-crat. Will you unlock the page if I decide to make a request, please?
- Thanks, Dan. I'll talk to you on weekend, when I will have enough time to do some more edits and write a nice promotion request. See you.
- Ok, I think I'm ready to write the request. Please unlock the page, when you have time.
Hey, Messi. Would you mind to vote on my req? Thanks for unlocking the page, also :)
Exclusive Request For Promotion Unlock
Hey, Dan. With all these different users requesting promotion and seeing the info about this lock, should we leave an exclusive unlock for us patrollers/staff?
Don't know if you have any particular reason to care or not, but I thought I'd let you know. Grandtheftwiki has been down for several days now, and before it went down Gboyers had been only making a few edits per month. I don't know if it's dead or not, but it might be. Jeff (talk|stalk) 23:08, March 28, 2013 (UTC)
I voided two RfAs and an RfP, since people who'd failed RfA's only a week or so ago were posting new requests. I left Cloudkit's RfP up since we've got a spot and he might make it, it's close, and I want to recuse on it since I just got done throwing my weight around working with the Dodo/Sasquatch situation. Jeff (talk|stalk) 05:34, March 29, 2013 (UTC)
Ok. You know, I can't blame but myself for not being an admin already. If I would have been civil from the start, things would have been different. What about making Ilan a b'cat? He's the admin with the most experience. Of course, I will wait how much is necessary, but after 2 months I'd like to apply again.
Ilan said he doesn't wants to be a B'cat. Anyway, if I would become an Admin, there would be 3-5-6/5. Is enough 3 b'cats, 5 admins is a normal number, and if I leave and Bob cutlass will be demoted for being inactive, there would be 5 patrollers which I think is enough. I know I had civility issues, but I have experience with Admin tools and I can create templates. If M.K. is helping users, JB is a a car expert, Vaultboy is is a grammar expert, Ilan is a good editor, maybe I could be the guy with templates.
- BTW, I have 8,000 edits on the old wiki.
I don't show desperation, I just want to help the wiki. And you seem to tell me I'll never become an admin. That's why I kept messaging you. I'll stop now.
- I just thought that if Ilan stays as an Admin there will never be an open place for me. Sorry again.
- Ok, Dan. Thanks. I'll keep contributing as a Patroller.
I see Vaultboy has added the code of the template on your page, instead of just "Template:Bureaucrat". Can you change that by yourself please? Your page is locked.
- Hey Messi. Are you agreed to make the GTA Wiki:Staff page look like this? I know it's useless, but maybe other users will recognize us by those badges.
Hey Messi, I wanted to ask you 'bout that too, has he already changed it? I couldn't check it out earlier, as my Google Chrome's been giving me some trouble loading the editor (it stays like that forever).
I have been given a suitable bollocking for my "disgusting and despicable" conduct & have subsequently changed my personal information so it is now suitable for any primary school children or Maily Dail readers that may come across this wiki. Hats off to Messi1983 though, he handled the situation impressively well.
Hey, how you doin' Messi? Apparently, this User:Bea Binene is putting up fanon articles, such as Myrtle Sarrosa, The Wizard of Viva Video Ass and Big Tours. I'll set those articles up for deletion and I will tell the users of his fanon not being allowed here. Mr. T. (talk) 05:47, April 5, 2013 (UTC) P.S. Can you change my username in orange again because I got my username downsized and it took out the orange text.
True. I gotta recognize Barça has been sucessful.
I haven't paid much attention at La Liga games, lately. Remind me, in which place is Real Madrid?
BTW: I'd like you to give your opinion on reviving the chat over here.
Wow, still 13 points behind? Can't you lose one god-damned game, at least?! xD
But my money's on Real Madrid, in the CL.
Let's see if they can make something out of it...
Let's see how it turns out...
Maybe you'll be the ones crying, after all hahaha. Go Bayern! :D
But of course, Bayern will be eliminated later on, so they better not get too happy.
Man, that hurt! :'(
We (Benfica) are gonna give Newcastle a new beating, in their own home.
What's your fave Premier League team?
We are likely to win the championship again, hell yeah!!!
After three seasons...
RE: Happy Birthday
I just launched this new wiki for a PS4 driving game, do you have any advice for creating a successful wiki? I've been taking some inspiration from this wiki, but I'm afraid I might not do the game justice.
Hey Dan, my name is Doug from Wikia's Community Development Team! I'm stopping by to talk to you about a potential affliate program for the GTA Wiki. Affliates can help spread the amount of visiters to your site. You could partner with other wikis (internal or external) to help bridge traffic. You'll have an icon like thison outside sites, while you'd host a page to host icons from other sites. Would you like to get a program like this up and running?
Also, we've created an official Twitter account for the wiki, updating wth contents of the wiki or game news. Our team will be updating these frequently and would love to have your support. Any way you'd like to contribute to these accounts? Know any other admins who'd be interested? We'd love to pull a Twitter feed of the account onto your mainpage somewhere if that is alright with you.
Thanks, let me know your thoughts on these things. Appreciate it!
Hey Dan, don't wanna get nosy, but I just read what Doug said, and it looks to me like a nice opportunity to get the GTA Wiki more popular!
Hey Dan, I made a "legitimate use alternate account" to use in the chatrooms (User:McJeff Chat). Basically I turn on Google Chrome and use it to chat while using Firefox to keep using this account. So anyway if you want to talk and catch me while I'm online, lemme know and we'll catch up on things realtime. Jeff (talk|stalk) 07:00, April 14, 2013 (UTC)
Hey Dan, I'm sorry , I know it was stupid, dumb, and idiotic thing for me to do that, but I didn't start the fight first, Tony was the one who started by calling me a bastard when he first came onto chat when I was away, I blocked him for that, but I felt bad for him. So I unbanned him, but when he started again by telling Zaibatsu to shut up, I banned him for that, so I told him if he wants to be unbanned, he has to apologize to Zaibatsu for telling him to shut up, I have proof of him being banned from chat in the other wiki. I know it's not your business to be in other wikis, but I want to show you proof, if you don't me show you proof, I'll understand. As I said, I'm really really sorry for abusing my power as chat moderator Dan, I promise that I won't do that again. Cloudkit01 (talk) 14:37, April 14, 2013 (UTC)Cloudkit01
Hi Messi. I don't like PerseusDude's attitude. He insulted Tony for writing his opinion on this blog post.
"September 17 2013 is the release date.
Rockstar confirmed it already, go to your local Game-Stop and see for yourself.
Dumb news blogs are making a story about fake delays for nothing..."
"If they delay GTA V, it's for a good reason.
They might be adding more details, rendering out unwanted glitches, and perfecting our gaming experiance.
Please stop whining, mate. The world doesn't owe you something you didn't know existed 8 months ago.
Hey I'm new to the wiki. Can't wait for GTA V so I can start some of my own pages!
Hi Messi. The guy is insulting me because I reported his bad attitude. Check the blog post and my earlier message. I really don't want to talk to him, because I'm afraid I will start a fight. He said he has the lowest respect for me and it's not my job to report when someone curses and has a bad attitude. Can you talk to him? Dodo8 Talk
- I didn't checked the Policy when I wrote that comment, and since he said there's no such rule, I thought he said the truth. But as you can see in the other comment, I added the phrase about civility, so he can see it too. I said sorry to him, and he said sorry too. I think it's fine now, but we should watch him, so he can have a good bahaviour. What do you think?Dodo8 Talk
Creating Talk Page Archives
Hey, Dan! How do you create Talk Page Archives? I want to create three out of my 65 message headlines (approximately 20 per archive).
Thanks Dan, I appreciate it :).
