Official Policy This page documents the Official Policy of the GTA Wiki. It concerns standards that all users should follow.

On GTA Wiki, articles are deleted through two systems:

The first is for articles with absolutely no value whatsoever, created only for vandalism, such as those about abusive topics. Entirely abusive articles (that are NOT edited versions of good articles) should be tagged with {{delete}} by Editors, so that Staff can easily find them and delete them. Tagging articles in that way assigns the article to Category:Delete so that they may easily be found.

The second system is for articles with little to no value. If an article is off-topic (e.g. Robbie Williams), too specific (e.g. Bus Stops in Vice City) or simply advertising a product/service/company (e.g. ShamWow!), then it should be tagged with {{prod}} which is proposed deletion. The deletion of PRODded pages should be discussed before action is taken, unless Staff find it to violate specific policy (at which point it can just be deleted). Pages with the prod template also show up in Category:Delete.
