Please use Article talk - do not edit war in edit summaries. I'm looking for the talk (in user space unfortunately) that was had in 2016ish that established the evidence for age (contrary to my position stated in the article talk in 2015 when I agreed there was no evidence). From memory, I did agree with it at the time. Smurfy: illuminate - communicate - spectate 02:35, December 6, 2019 (UTC)
- I don't understand that decision, Carl's age isn't confirmed, and no conclusion have been made in the talk page. The age specified in the article it's still speculative, wich could be far wrong anyway as he doesn't even look that young (23-24).--Fabrix199 (talk) 03:31, December 6, 2019 (UTC)
- I apologize for "edit warring". However, there is no excuse for letting false information out. If you have proof of Carl's supposed age, source it. The age that is currently specified in the article (23-24) is not mentioned to be speculative. In fact, it's mentioned that it's his confirmed age, which is incorrect.--Equivalent-Ambition (talk)
- Improper Warning removed*
- As stated in my first message to you, I believe the discussion and consensus on allowing the age was conducted on User Talk pages instead of the article talk page (and I'll be copying all this conversation to the article talk soon to prevent repetition of this bad habit here at GTA Wiki). You will note in the page history and article talk that in 2015 I was completely in agreement with you both and had even protected the page back then to prevent this info being added. Something changed after that. I cannot even remember if I agreed with the evidence to support it or just agreed to abide by the consensus (similar to the situation with Michael's age where a vague age estimate in dialogue from Jimmy is used to contradict a specific year on a headstone and a tattoo!) so until I can find the discussion to refresh my own half-century old memory, I'm leaving the info there and the page will remain locked for the 24 hours. I do agree with Universetwisters's removal of 1968 from the page. Even if there is some evidence to support 23-24 years of age, that doesn't support a precise year of birth unless we knew both a birth month and what month(s) the game takes place in.
