Undoing Citation needed

In Police Riot it mentioned they are "Bomb Squad" during The Paleto Score, and was not heard in game dialogues. After went through couple videos and my actual in-game replaying, I was not able to pickup that line. HammerPist (talk) 01:03, April 16, 2020 (UTC)

An experiment to help grow your wiki’s engagement!

Hello! We’ve been analyzing what makes people spend more time on wikis and we’ve identified something. It’s comments!

Having comments enabled on a wiki gives it a boost to the time people spend on the pages and engage with the wiki.  We would like to enable comments on your wiki to help it grow as part of an experiment. 

This will not happen if you don’t agree with trying this out! It’s entirely up to you! 

We believe that this experiment will help your wiki and if you have any problems along the way we can always roll back and disable comments. 

So, what do you think? Are you interested in trying this with us? We’d love to work with you to help grow your community! 

Looking forward to hearing from you! HeyTots (talk) 18:11, April 17, 2020 (UTC)

Tinkle stock tip undo

Re Tinkle: doing Lester's Assassination missions first means you have more money to invest in Tinkle, yes - but doing the Tinkle mission first means you have more money to invest in Lester's Assassinations. They are both % increases, so it doesn't matter which one you do first, the end result is the same.

e.g.

$100
+ 50% return = $150
+ 100% return = $300

or

$100
+ 100% return = $200
+ 50% return = $300

It does matter that you do the Big Score first, because that gives you an absolute amount of money, but after that percentage gains can be done in any order. Gregg Carpaccio (talk) 17:07, April 21, 2020 (UTC)

Loz undo

Hi your recent undo of my edit on the LOZ speed page was unwarranted. My information was completely accurate and valid that the "LOZ power" style logo (the boxy one) is based on the MAX Power magazine logo. Go do your googling before you go undo things. Im not denying the fact that LOZ is as a brand is based on OZ Racing and Im completely aware of that fact that it most likely is. But that logo is not based on the OZ one and anyone with a decent pair of eyes can see that.

Dearly,

Banned politically motivated vandal

Thanks for letting me know about my "vandalism" on a page. That wasn't a vandalism, just a note, and it was signed. Please tell me, have you made a diploma in linguistics so you know that so called "Serbo-Bosnian-Croatian" is one language? I presume not, and to inform you, let me tell you it ISN'T. You actually have to leave on the Balkans area to know the difference, and the fact that foreigners don't see a diffrence ain't my or anybody else's problem. Those are not same languages and don't try to lecture me about it, because you can't. And yes, I'm a patriot and I love my country. If that offends you, I'm afraid I can't help you with that. Thanks for taking time to view this message and have a wonderful day, sir.

Fonts

Hey, I was wondering why you reversed my changed on the Fonts page? I mean I know I broke the GTA 2 table somehow, but the rest were pretty decent edits.

Hazelnot (talk) 10:26, April 29, 2020 (UTC)

RE: Fonts

The thing is, not all games seem to have "Other" fonts, and it seemed a bit redundant to me to just have blank rows on the games that don't have them. On the other hand, I didn't format them with "random" fonts, I just added in Aharoni Bold and SF Arborcrest which, to my knowledge, ar free to use. I didn't see that as a problem since someone added in stuff like Signpainter which is definitely not free and is still being used on the page. You could've just fixed the bad stuff instead of removing the streamilining of the credits stuff and the removal of unused elements for the San Andreas HUD (health and armor aren't represented via text) for example though.

Hazelnot (talk) 22:43, April 29, 2020 (UTC)

im sorry

Turns out SF Arborcrest is shareware, and it's a bit of a weird situation here, since it's free for non-profit use, which is what we're doing, but Fandom itself is for-profit, which seems a bit confusing. Either way, this is where you can find it, from the foundry's website. Aharoni is in a weirder situation. It was made in like the 1930s, by two foundries working together, but some sources seem to say that it's a Hebrew-only font, and apparently only the version that was packaged with Windows had a latin script version at all. One of the foundries that made it is now defunct, and the other one got absorbed into Neufville Foundry, but the rights seem to have stayed with the defunct one. The company that licensed the typeface to Microsoft, Kivun Computers, also seems to be defunct, and it seemingly only operated between 1991 and 1993, and the copyright on the Microsoft website mentions Monotype, but Monotype doesn't seem to have the rights to it either. So practically it's in limbo. Nobody seems to own it.

You have a new Wiki Manager

User:Jr Mime has stepped down from his Wiki Manager position at Fandom.

Due to the pandemic, Fandom is not taking on new staff at the moment - so his wikis have been divided among the other Wiki Manager. Now, I mention this because there's a possibility that a new member of staff will be recruited in a few months and you might get re-reassigned. But, for now, you get me! (Hello!)

Hopefully all is good and you're all keeping well during these unprecedented times.👑 Emptylord (talk) 03:45, April 30, 2020 (UTC)

Love Media Building

Hello there,

I noticed you undid my edit to the Love Media Building. I deleted the "fact" where it stated that the building is the fourth tallest in Bedford Point since there was no citation or record to verify this statement. Do you have any factual evidence to back this statement up? If so please share it in the article. Heyfunboy (talk) 18:18, May 17, 2020 (UTC)

Hi Smurfy hope you're doing god in these tough times, I have created a page Inbread Bakery for which I need a good resolution logo and a screenshot of it's birthday cake box from GTA IV if possible as the logo I've uploaded is of very low resolution.

Sorry for the impatient request

Hi Smurfy, I'm really sorry to you and other staff members I spammed without waiting for your reply. It's just that I dont like leaving a article half and I have no access to the OpenIV tool so I could get it myself maybe I was somewhat impatient because of that. I just wanna add any article still missing to this wiki so before any next game comes out we have most of the refrences figured out. I'm again sorry for the behaviour and would thereby promise it won't repeat again. I would message you if I need anything and wait for you if you're okay with that.

And btw how are the new articles I created recently any mistakes I still do and any improvements? 

Thank you & take care Steve316 (talk) 05:51, May 27, 2020 (UTC)

Another politically motivated banned vandal

Hello, why was my correct edit on Dimitri's page reverted back to normal? He was born in the Soviet Union, the Soviet Union existed in 1969, and the Soviet Army was not called the "Red Army" after 1946, so why was this edit reverted? SovietFriends91 (talk) 09:18, May 29, 2020 (UTC)

Can the livery on the Mil Mi-24 (Savage) be removed or at least made harder to see? I think the US Army livery on it is an insult to the USSR. What can I do about it? SovietFriends91 (talk) 09:31, May 29, 2020 (UTC)

Need Textures/Screenshots if possible

Hi Smurfy, thank you again for the previous images....I need the textures of the all magazines covers and DVDs inside The Peep Hole in GTA IV if possible which can help me create new pages for some missing magazine articles and adding a artcle of Straight to Digital which is missing a logo, which if you could manage to get will be awesome.

Also there is a Laundromat at Schottler by the name "Come Clean" of which if you can get some textures and screenshots will be great....It's just a request if grabbing these is possible...Thank you Steve316 (talk) 14:54, May 31, 2020 (UTC)

A Question About Lester's Page

"*Lester may in part be inspired by the character Kelso from the movie Heat. Both Kelso and Lester have physical disabilities, and both men are more involved with planning heists than with actually carrying them out." I removed that because that is an obscenely broad claim. There are numerous physically disabled characters who plan heists. Bentley from Sly Cooper, which came out before this game, for example. This reference is actually mentioned on Lester's page as well, but it's specific. Unless the reference I quoted at the start of this was more specific, I don't see why it's being added back. Could you please explain why this extremely broad claim is being allowed to stay?
Also, I apologize if this seems rude or something. I'm bad at phrasing things correctly; I'm just genuinely asking, as I legitimately don't see why the claim was added back.
Page in question: Lester Crest
~Shigeharu (talk) 17:46, June 1, 2020 (UTC)
Bentley is physically disabled and is more involved in the planning, for example. Bentley became physically disabled in Sly Cooper 3, which came out in 2005, and his last appearance was in Sly Cooper 4, where he was still disabled (that game came out in February of 2013, whereas GTA 5 came out in September of 2013.) The character Bain from the Payday series is physically disabled and more involved in the planning, though he didn't become disabled until a few years after GTA 5's release, so that example is mostly moot. Point is, lots of heist planners are physically disabled and don't take part in the action.~Shigeharu (talk) 18:00, June 1, 2020 (UTC)
You do know that not everyone is a film buff, yes? You don't have to be condescending, considering I was being completely civil before. Now, I'm not as civil because I am in a bad mood as a result of your activities. If you're fine with information being unclear and leaving massive room for misunderstandings, thus harming the wiki, then by all means, please continue.~Shigeharu (talk) 00:30, June 2, 2020 (UTC) Thank you, Smurf. All I wanted was an explanation. Thank you for explaining this to me; I did read that page, though it was more of a skim than it was a read, to be honest. I'm sorry for being rude, and I thank you for the explanation.~Shigeharu (talk) 11:22, June 2, 2020 (UTC)

Category Question

Are categories supposed to have themself as one of their categories? I found one that has itself as one of its own categories and I'm not quite sure if I should remove that or not.~Tora (To4oo4) (talk) 16:38, June 3, 2020 (UTC)

Queries & Thank you for images

Hi Smurfy, thank you for all the images you extracted per my request and additional info and insights. I will be adding the missing relevant pages soon.

I have some queries for the pages related to DVD covers which I will be adding. There are some publications like STD (Straight to Digital), Clown, Hammi Shanaka Productions, Triangle DVD, Clap Films, One Hand Workout, etc. So  should I create a page for each DVD cover or only the pages for publications mentioned before? And a thing I noiced is a VDV logo on each cover is present which I think is just the format indication sticker (like we have on DVD)

Also I loved the additional images and locations you found for Inbread Bakery, just a query can we add the Cake Box Render model back in the gallery as the cake box is not perfectly visible in the cutscene? Thanks and regards Steve316 (talk) 09:22, June 5, 2020 (UTC)

Some Queries and screenshots/textures needed

Hi Smurfy, thank you with your help I was able to add almost 25 new articles to this wiki. I have some queries and some ss/texture request which I have listed below:

Thanks and Regards Steve316 (talk) 12:13, June 8, 2020 (UTC)

A thing I forgot to say, can we get more info/images related to Weazel Kidz! ? Alien Couch is the only thing I found related to it. Thank you Steve316 (talk) 12:18, June 8, 2020 (UTC)

Hi, another interesting thing I found today is Straight To Digital appears in GTA V where Trevor owns four DVDs of STD titled: Knees Please (which appears as a magazine in GTA IV), Ass Ist Gud Ja!, Backstage Asses & Cream Scene Summer Splash Volume 5. Knees Please can only be found inside Trevor's trailer while the other 3 can be found inside Trvor's trailer or Vanilla Unicorn office or at house of Debra. If possible can you extract cover images/textures for these too so I can add the missing pages and info soon to the wiki.

Also inside Lester's house I found a wireless router box by Digital Den (was upside down on a shelf) of which if you could get a straight image/screenshot would be cool also there are action figures of 4 The Barfs, Brown Streak, Impotent Rage, Princess Robot Bubblegum, Republican Space Rangers & Captain Space Toy (Spacetramp & Interstella transgender figures) which I will add to the wiki if it's not there yet. And lastly if possible can you get all posters texture/images inside Lester's house along with box of a RP game The Wizards Sleeve and comic books/magazines of Impotent Rage, The Barfs and Rampager which I will add soon. Thanks and regards Steve316 (talk) 12:46, June 9, 2020 (UTC)


Hi Smurfy, any updates/luck finding the textures/images requested above? Not in a hurry tho take your time, just was idle so I thought if its done I would start to add it. Thanks and regards Steve316 (talk) 16:59, June 17, 2020 (UTC)


Hi Smurfy, any update on the request made above? Thank you Steve316 (talk) 07:28, July 5, 2020 (UTC)

Re:Ferdinand Kerimov edit war

H​i Kiwismurf. That is okay. Dont worry about a thing. But I don't think any of us is guilty about anything. There's just been a misunderstanding. Firstof all I am new to this kind of place. I didnt really know how things work here. My dumbass thought one could just edit anything here they deem is right without giving an explanation or anything like. That is the kind of website I thought it was. I didnt even know there was an explanation box for edits until I got blocked.  And you guys thought I was trying to maliciously vandalise gta wiki because of all that and hecnce deccided to block me. So yeah, nobody is guilty of anything. It all was just a misunderstanding, that's it. 

Lol, believe it or not, it took me nearly an hour to find this talk page and how to write a message! Like I said, I am completely new here and I think it would be very helpful if there were some kind of guide videos for new-comers like me.

"Whilst this is heavily implied, you are correct that it is never stated outright by any character at any time."
―kiwismurf

I would say it is not even implied:

  1. Mr. K mentions in one of his lines that he knows not only about Azerbaijanis, but also about Tajikistanis, Kyrgyzstanis. So he could be from any of those places.
  2. This one is more important. While describing the Azerbaijani terrorist, none of the characters make a reference to Mr. K. that that's how an Azervaijani might possibly look like. In By The Book, when Michael asks Dave how are Azerbaijanis like, he simply replies "They look eastern". That's it. No reference to Kerimov whatsoever. 

Also, you can see from their character models that Mr. K and Tahir definitely dont look similar. Kerimov, for instance, is much darker than the terrorist. He also wears a christian cross which strongly implies that he is a christian. Azerbaijan is a predominantly muslim country and a very, very tiny minority of them follow Christianity. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Sweetkind (talkcontribs) 2020-06-08 16:56:50‎ Please remember to sign your talk page messages with ~~~~.

GTAwiki mistakes

Hello,

I am sorry to tell you that also Rooftop Rumble is wrong in regard to the FIB agents, the model used is named in the GTA V game files as S_M_Y_devinsec_01 and has nothing to do with the various FIB models used in game. 

During Rooftop Rumble FIB is never mentioned, and the only reason people assume they are FIB agents is because the FIB Granger  appears in the mission (that is also used by NOOSE and in many online missions seen parked near LSPD cops without any NOOSE or FIB agents in sight).

So making the assumption that the Fugitive is a FIB vehicle because it is driven by Devin's security guard model that is also seen near an FIB Granger (that is not only used by FIB) is a stretch and not "factual".

The Fugitive also do not have a LS EXEMPT license plate like the FIB Granger and FIB Buffalo (identifying it as a government vehicle)... so I see no reason to assume it is an FIB vehicle.

Anyway, I will be giving this issue a rest, and will not bother fixing any of the GTAwiki mistakes any more. I will however make a video highlighting various mistakes in hope that people get the real GTA facts. It is no seacret that your wiki is often wrong on the smaller details of the game.

Whatever007 (talk) 13:15, July 2, 2020 (UTC)

OR that R* made a mistake (not the first time)... anyway feel free to add the Desert Eagle used by FIB agents in "Going Deep" from TBoGT and the Police Maverick from the online mission “Exit Strategy”.

Whatever007 (talk) 16:49, July 2, 2020 (UTC)

I am sure it's a mistake on the part of R*, also last time I played "Rooftop Rumble" the "FIB agent" escaping in the Fugitive was an asian model (not devinsec)... so WTF. anyway thanks for rhe informative reply. 

Also it is completely reasonable that the FIB would use civilian cars, it's just in this particular case seems like a very odd coincidence. (if there were no FIB Grangers there then "ok, they just happen to use the same cars... cool") but they use both type of cars and sending reinforcments in unmarked cars, feels alot like R* didn't care. Also they have like 10 fib models in the files (one only used in a single cutcene) so... someone at R* just made the mission going "f this, I need a security model... here, that's fine..."
