Hello, and welcome to GTA Wiki Weekly News - 29th September 2019.

Apologies for the lack of Weekly News posts for the last two issues. After deep consideration, due to the current lack of content, GTA Wiki Weekly News will reduce its issues to monthly. It may become more frequent if/when content becomes more frequent and of a larger scale. Until then, the series will become GTA Wiki Monthly News.

The past couple weeks have been continually steady on the wiki. Aesthetic changes to the Diff Preview screen have been made to improve readability of changes to content, as well as other smaller tweaks around the wiki. Let us know what you think of the latest changes!
