GTA Wiki:Manual of Style/Radio Station

To be checked over by administrators and bureaucrats to see if can be part of the official Manual of Style.

In order to keep our wiki providing the best information about radio stations to the reader there are set guidelines that should be used in order to create high-quality articles that ensure the best information and a convenient reading experience for readers. Standard rules such as "neutral point of view" and third-person perspective apply for editing for radio station articles.


  • Intro (No headings required for opening section) should contain Template:Infobox radio station. The intro should also contain a short summary about the radio station and the game(s) it appears in.
  • Overview/Description
Should be a written expansion of information summarized by the infobox - music genres, DJ information, which characters prefer the station, studio location if known, broadcast locations and limits etc.
  • Tracklist (If 80% of the tracklist is available on Spotify, it can contain Template:Tracklist with Template:Spotify previews. Example: Liberty Rock Radio)
  • Appearances
    • Missions(Only if the song is scripted to play during the mission.)
    • Other Appearances (Trailers, in-game TV Shows, Commercials, inside businesses...)
  • Gallery (if there is any photos to post in the article)
  • Trivia
See trivia policy - Trivia should be avoided whenever possible and integrated into the above sections.
  • Navigation

What to avoid

  • Using copyrighted songs on .ogg audio files. (Unless it is a song made for the game e.g. Grand Theft Auto 1, Grand Theft Auto 2 and Grand Theft Auto Advance soundtrack)
    • If necessary, upload a .ogg audio file that is less than 5 seconds long, using the Fair use license. See GTA Wiki:Copyright for more detail on our copyright policy.
    • The .ogg audio file must have a recognizable part of the music.
  • Adding tracklist template for unused songs mentioned in the game's files which were obviously never licensed.
  • Opinions, speculation and and fan-fiction content.
  • Adding modded images to article pages, as the natural forms are all that is necessary.
  • Adding images alongside text in loose form. Images should only be in the lead infobox or one of the organised galleries.
  • "The sky is blue" trivia points; we would like to avoid the possibility of patronizing our readers.

Subject: Ned Burner

From: Anonymous


And I quote, from your much respected crime and society reporter, Ned Burner: "Foppish dandy and social parasite, Donald Love, and his friends at the IRS, should make up their minds ­ does he live in Liberty City or not? For a man who claims to want civic office in this town, he should decide if he lives here or not - and pay city taxes, if indeed he does live here, and stay away if he does not. The business mogul, with allegedly exotic tastes in entertainment has become a regular on the Liberty City social scene over the past few years and maintains a sumptuous apartment for entertaining his guests, but still does not pay any city or state taxes. This man, worth many millions of dollars, is freeloading off our city. Of course, we expect our moguls to be tasteless, brutal and irritating people, but we do also expect them, occasionally, to pay tax as well. When contacted regarding this story, Mr. Love was unavailable for comment."

Could you please ask Mr. Burner to go a little easy? Tax law is incredibly complex, while libel law is remarkably easy. Assassins are even easier to arrange. Thank you and good day.
