Manual of Style

We have a manual of style for missions. DLVIIIL Talk 05:13, March 17, 2015 (UTC)

Hi there.

I know the mission template provides for bulleted lists in the objectives, but if you take a look around, they have not been used for any other mission pages because frankly they make the infoboxes look terrible. The Manual of Style moved them to the page layout where they look much better and don't overcomplicate the infobox.

Please hold off adding any more while I do a little backround check to see why the field and instruction were left in the infobox template. For now, we will revert your changes back to the status quo.

Thanks smurfy (coms) Need a Heist crew? 05:37, March 17, 2015 (UTC)

Hi again. Yes, as you have rightly observed, you can recommence copying the mission objectives to the infoboxes now that WildBrick42 and I have discussed his design changes and he has made some improvements. Please don't remove the objectives from the article body though. Thanks for pausing when asked yesterday. smurfy (coms) 05:39, March 18, 2015 (UTC)

As per my discussion with WildBrick, go ahead and use the {{BP}} template to include the bulleted lists in the infoboxes, for the objectives and the fail conditions and rewards where there are multiple entries. smurfy (coms) 06:14, March 18, 2015 (UTC)

Pages "Under Construction".

Generally it means at some point someone has been doing work on it. Check the edit history and if no-one has touched it recently, then it is probably "safe" to start workimng on yourself without annoying another editor. That's not to say you cannot work on a page at the same time as somebody else, it would just be polite to engage their talk page to discuss what they are working on to ensure you are not duplicating effort or working contradictorily. In the case of the GTA III Rampages, it hasn't been touched for 12 months, so go ahead and work on it.  smurfy (coms) 11:21, March 28, 2015 (UTC)

If you can't think of anything else that needs to be added, you can remove the template. If a staff member disagrees, they will re-add it when the edits are checked.  smurfy (coms) 11:48, March 28, 2015 (UTC)

Transcripts

Read the recent discussion. It's not a project I am getting directly involved in, so best you talk to Tom. smurfy (coms) 02:26, March 29, 2015 (UTC)

Order of missions

Tricky subject. The very nature of the sandbox design is that many mission progressions are not strictly linear and can be mixed and matched. Of course missions from a single "mission giver" are normally linear and completion of one normally unlocks that giver's next one with some exceptions; i.e.  where continuation of a particular mission strand depends on completion of a mission from a different strand. This is complicated even more in GTA V with multiple protagonists having multiple simultaneous mission giver strands and some of those intersecting at times. If you think there is a glaring error in a mission strand, by all means make a change to the page. If other editors disagree, they will change it back and you can initiate a discussion to explain your logic. smurfy (coms) 22:39, March 30, 2015 (UTC)

The GTA IV Missions listing has nothing to do with where the action takes place. They are listed by the unlocked "island" then by the mission giver. The 1st 3 are correctly listed as being given by Jon Gravelli and are not available until Algonquin is unlocked. Same way Three Leaf Clover is listed as a Broker-Dukes-Bohan mission because it is given by the McCrearry's even though it takes place in Algonquin. When you have specific questions like this, sometimes it is best to look at the article talk page first. You'll see there has been previous discussion about the ordering. As mentioned above, they are non-linear and it does not make sense to list them all under each "giver" as certain "givers" get put on hold while the player must complete other strands before returning to the original giver. Laying them out in the "available" order is what has been attempted on that page. smurfy (coms) 08:49, March 31, 2015 (UTC)
Hi again, sorry for the delayed response, there are a few things going on elsewhere on the wiki that have required my attention.
1) As I have stated above, the mission structure can not be laid out in a linear manner. See this for a demonstration of how futile it is to try to lay out the mission list in a linear order. The currently laid out order makes sense to me. 
2) Stunt Jumps. Go ahead. I have it on my list of things to document but it's a long list, we need all the help we can get.
3) Infoboxes - yes, we are trying to get as many of these built as we can. If you have any ideas for other categories that could use one, let us know and if agreed I can get one built.
Thanks smurfy (coms) 01:33, April 22, 2015 (UTC)
Introductory Cutscene(s) with dedicated mission page(s). 
It really depends on how integrated Rockstar had made the cutscene with the start of the first mission. i.e. in GTA:VC, GTA:SA and GTA:IV, they blend right into the start of the first actual mission so are described in the opening mission page, whereas in GTA III, the intro (if I remember correctly - it's been nearly 10 years since I've played GTAIII) it was more of a scene-setter and wasn't as seamlessly integrated into the plot of the first actual player-controlled mission. If The Introduction had opened GTA:SA, it would have had its own mission page then. We certainly don't need to think about splitting the intro cutscenes for every game if that's what you were thinking by this question. smurfy (coms) 10:28, April 22, 2015 (UTC)

RE

Thanks, I will do my best to protect the wiki. Also I saw your message on VaultBoy's Talk page. You should create the transcript pages in GTA IV because no one is working on that. If you need any help with the Transcript pages just ask me. Myth(Talk/Stalk) 09:49, April 22, 2015 (UTC)

Yes, you will also have to describe what is happening(EG-Some one leave the place, or makes a phone call) as well as outside cutscenes dialogues. Myth(Talk/Stalk) 10:28, April 22, 2015 (UTC)

GTA IV Transcripts

Hey man, I noticed that you are planning to make the transcripts for the GTA IV missions, if you need any help with the alternative dialogues during the car rides, or any other secondary dialogue to put in the transcript, I highly recommend you to check this guy's [1] youtube channel, look for his "all possiblities" video playlist, he basically show us very single possible line of dialogue that each of the missions in GTA IV have, it will help you a lot on making this transcripts without playing the game multiple times. - DLVIII Talk 14:39, April 22, 2015 (UTC)

You're welcome. I also added a new line of dialogue in the transcript and decided to use italics on the dialogue spoken in serbian. I think it adds more detail to the transcript. Feel free to message me if you need any help. - DLVIII Talk 12:19, April 23, 2015 (UTC)

RE: Mission Transcripts

Yeah, sure. If you need to know how to set it out look at one of these. LS11sVaultBoy (Talk) 14:47, April 22, 2015 (UTC)

RE:Patroller

Thanks! Yeah, I'll work on the mission objectives as soon as I can (I'll also continue to upload screenshots of GTA III missions). Let me know if you need help with the transcripts. V-michael-trunk-miniV-franklin-trunk-miniV-trevor-trunk-mini 14:44, April 23, 2015 (UTC)

It's not a bad idea, but not something I'd want to do halfheartedly. It will take some thought to get a suitable design philosophy.

I'd see it looking something like:

Turns out, the template already exists:

Template:GTA_V_road smurfy (coms) 03:49, April 25, 2015 (UTC)

The template name does not restrict it to use for GTAV. There is nothing in the end display that identifies the game title, it could be used for any title. smurfy (coms) 03:55, April 25, 2015 (UTC)


RE:GTA IV Transcripts

You don't need to apologise. Theres no rush to finish this transcripts, so create as much as you can, when you can. - DLVIII Talk 19:47, April 24, 2015 (UTC)

Oops! Didn't saw your first question, sorry about that. Well, I am only including dialogue from cutscenes and car rides, thats why I also put the alternative dialogues.
The only reason I included that last bit about the bus ride, was because its an fail condition that provoques an cutscene. I think that fail conditions that only provoque an dialogue from the characters can be ignored, otherwise the transcript might get too big, since theres a lot of these in each mission. We can open an exception for the fail conditions that cause an cutscene, since theres very few of these in the game. What do you think? - DLVIII Talk 04:00, April 25, 2015 (UTC)
I see your point, I think we can open exceptions and include dialogue from cutscenes and phone calls depending of the mission and if that make it easier to understand the context of the dialogue. We can discuss this further in later missions. As for Karen, I think its best to call her Michelle for now, at least until her true identity is revealed, for the sake of spoilers. - DLVIII Talk 05:27, April 25, 2015 (UTC)

RE:Phone calls in Transcripts

Yeah, include phonecalls. Ones that start the mission, have a purpose in mission (including the humorous friend hang out offers during missions) and ones that are right after the mission that tells the boss the job is done. No need to include random calls after missions (for example optionally calling Roman to tell him about the current events) or character introduction calls at the moment. V-michael-trunk-miniV-franklin-trunk-miniV-trevor-trunk-mini 15:14, April 25, 2015 (UTC)

RE:RE:Transcripts and Phone Calls

Phonecalls that once accepted, immediately start a mission, (as you said, like in Roman's Sorrow and Hostile Negotiation) should definetely be included, and they should be included in the transcript of the mission unlocked by then, since this phone calls serves to introduce the player to the events of the unlocked mission. - DLVIII Talk 02:25, April 26, 2015 (UTC)

RE:Editing Difficulty

Done. The page should be good now. Are you going to put the dialogue that happens between Niko and Roman, if Niko chooses to do First Date before Bleed Out in this transcript? - DLVIII Talk 13:47, April 26, 2015 (UTC)

The dialogue which Roman calls Niko to pick him at the hospital if Niko complete First Date before Roman's Sorrow, and the dialogue during the car ride to the cab depot. If you want, I can put this dialogue myself. - DLVIII Talk 21:27, April 26, 2015 (UTC)

LCS and VCS missions

Personal opinion? I think they look terrible and should be consistently formatted the way the other mission list pages are. smurfy (coms) 21:12, April 26, 2015 (UTC)

Preferences

On mobile, I tend to use the "full site" option bellow the page. It lets you use the regular layout of the site that you see while using a computer, its kind of a pain in the ass to click on things because its so small, but you get used to it. What mission pages are giving you trouble? I think it have something to do with the videos, but I have to confirm this first. - DLVIII Talk 12:30, April 28, 2015 (UTC)

Oops, I didn't check that page, I reverted my edit. - DLVIII Talk 12:34, April 28, 2015 (UTC)
Check this pages again. - DLVIII Talk 12:40, April 28, 2015 (UTC)
I don't know if theres an easier way, but if the video walkthrough on the page uses this <youtube></youtube> type of link, you have to change it and the only way to do it so is by uploading a new video to the wikia, to do this you have to:
  • Go to GTA Series Videos youtube channel.
  • Find in his "GTA IV Walkthrough" playlist the video walkthrough of the mission page you want to edit.
  • Copy the URL of video page.
  • Click the "add video" button that is on the side of the edit page.
  • Paste the URL and follow the instructions.
If you did everything right, you will ended up with an video link that looks like this:
[[File:GTA 4 - Mission 8 - Bull in a China Shop (1080p)|thumb|right|335 px]]
Change the middle part of the link to "center", so the video can be placed at the center of the page, it will look like this:
[[File:GTA 4 - Mission 8 - Bull in a China Shop (1080p)|center|335 px]]
Now just put the video link where the video should be and the page should work normaly again. - DLVIII Talk 13:38, April 28, 2015 (UTC)

Trial and error page editing

I have moved your "test" page to your own personal sandbox space. You can create as many sandbox pages as you need to help you learn to edit.

Transcript Ideas

I like the idea of using multiple transcripts to missions that can play different depending of the player's previous decisions, (Undertaker and Mr and Mrs Bellic) it can make the whole transcript less confusing and easier for the reader to locate what he is looking for. As for mission that are divided in two parts, (Out of the Closet and Final Interview) I think it doesn't make much difference, the second mission is a natural continuation of the first one not an alternative event, but if you want to make separeted transcripts for this type of mission I see no problem, I just don't think is as necessary as the missions that play different.

I still don't thing that is necessary to put every single dialogue from mission fails, but since its you that is making all the transcripts, if putting even more stuff doesn't bother you, then go for it. I just thought that you already had too much work in your hands with only the primary and secondary dialogues during the missions. Just remember that you don't need to rush with this transcripts, work at the pace you feel more confortable with.

AS Smuerf already said, when you want to create an page to put your own ideas and work, create an sandbox page, its just like creating an normal page, but you need to put slash signs to link this page to your userpage. I took the liberty to put a link to take transcript example page of your in your userpage, so in the future, if you have any other ideas, you can use that page to show me. Cheers. - DLVIII Talk 13:32, May 1, 2015 (UTC)

I like the idea. The only thing I'm not sure about is the Headers taking up space - I've just added a new feature to the scriptbox so there won't be a need for these.

If the type of dialogue isn't specified, it will say "Transcript". If it is specified, it will say what you want to say.

For example:

Transcript
Niko trashes the car.
Niko calls Roman.
Niko: I trashed your car. I'm sorry.
Call ends.
Transcript
Niko trashes the car.
Niko calls Roman.
Niko: I trashed your car. I'm sorry.
Roman: That's fine. Let's go bowling.
Call ends.

So these can be placed right next to each other without the need of headers/spaces/splits/etc.. Everything else is fine. V-michael-trunk-miniV-franklin-trunk-miniV-trevor-trunk-mini 14:05, May 2, 2015 (UTC)

Yes. That is perfect :) V-michael-trunk-miniV-franklin-trunk-miniV-trevor-trunk-mini 09:24, May 3, 2015 (UTC)

RE:

It looks pretty good! I don't see how it could get better than this. Keep up the good work. - DLVIII Talk 02:22, May 4, 2015 (UTC)

RE: Mission pages

That was my original idea with the mission objectives but now I'm not sure what to do with it. It sometimes looks messy when there's the mission objective, one line of description and next mission objective (Three's a Crowd is an example). V-michael-trunk-miniV-franklin-trunk-miniV-trevor-trunk-mini 12:47, May 4, 2015 (UTC)

Character infoboxes and the "deceased" symbol.

I'm a little on the fence on this one, while I agree with Rainingpain that they do clean up the infobox and look better, they also impose a certain religious denomination on the pages (by use of the crucifix symbol) that I disagree with.   smurfy (coms) 22:03, May 4, 2015 (UTC)

I personally think it looks better if a character is listed as "Deceased", rather than the symbol. I have no religious opinion regarding the use of the crucifix symbol but if a character is listed as "Deceased" it looks less confusing for a new user, who may not be aware of why it is used on this Wiki. It should remain in Template boxes though, as its use is explained there. SJWalker (talk) 22:43, May 4, 2015 (UTC)

The infobox I was mainly referring to was the Lost MC infobox, which lists many members. For personal infoboxes, any deceased characters would be listed as Deceased. But in the template box (usually found at the foot of character pages), the template explains the use of the crucifix symbol in regards to a character's status. I personally think that "Deceased" should be listed where appropriate, as it is easier to understand for a casual visitor. SJWalker (talk) 10:38, May 5, 2015 (UTC)

I personally would, but I'd leave it for the moment and see what Sean says when he comes back a bit later. SJWalker (talk) 10:50, May 5, 2015 (UTC)

With determinant characters, they're listed as "Determinant" in the infobox, and in the character template at the foot of the page their names are in italics. SJWalker (talk) 11:09, May 5, 2015 (UTC)

To be honest, it doesn't bother me either way. To avoid edit battles over the use of the symbol though, before going through and reverting what may or may not be considered inappropriate use you should probably start a discussion on the Community Noticeboard and see if there is enough interest to set a policy on the use of the symbol .  smurfy (coms) 12:17, May 5, 2015 (UTC)

Road template usage

I would include all junctions, otherwise you just get into petty arguments over what constitues a major junction. smurfy (coms) 11:36, May 6, 2015 (UTC)

Albany Avenue = Content: good. Output from the template: not so good.
Leave it there though, I'll see if I can find some time to tweak the existing template format tomorrow. smurfy (coms) 12:16, May 6, 2015 (UTC)
Yes, I think I'm going to have to take back my comment that it should work generically across games. I'll probably need to build a new one for streets and leave that one for the GTA V highways. smurfy (coms) 12:27, May 6, 2015 (UTC)

Sorry Marcus, I haven't had a chance to follow up on this yet. Good on you for diving in and trying to do it. I will hopefully have a chance to look over your template tonight and I'll let you know if I spot anything that you can improve. Don't worry about the number of edits it takes when building infobox templates, their very nature means that you have to save a couple of edits to see the result of any change. There is a test template page but it's currently being used for other infobox design tests, so there's no harm in continuing to experiment with your "live" template. smurfy (coms) 23:39, May 10, 2015 (UTC)

RE:Minor Characters

Yes, every single character, no matter how minor they are, need a infobox. I actually have been working recently in putting infoboxes in minor character pages, as you can see here, here and here. - DLVIII Talk 12:45, May 6, 2015 (UTC)

RE: Mission Infoboxes

Adding the street name would give more information about the location but it would also add a long line of location into the infobox.

I don't mind either way though, do what you think is best. V-michael-trunk-miniV-franklin-trunk-miniV-trevor-trunk-mini 10:21, May 9, 2015 (UTC)

RE: Mission Transcripts

Not really, but it looks better when it's on the page. The scriptboxes don't take up much space so I don't see why they shouldn't be included. V-michael-trunk-miniV-franklin-trunk-miniV-trevor-trunk-mini 09:50, May 16, 2015 (UTC)

Update

I don't edit on my cellphone anymore, so this doesn't effect me that much, but it sound really annoying. Theres not much that we can do besides ask then to change it back. So hopefully they will listen. - DLVIII Talk 14:29, May 19, 2015 (UTC)

Just noticed that, give then time, they will fix this. How is the transcripts going? Need help with anything? - DLVIII Talk 14:14, May 20, 2015 (UTC)

Planche Street

Verified in game and renamed. In future, just edit the page and add a {{move|new suggested name}} template to a page.

Can I ask you to do the rest of the follow up cleanup... I left a redirect in place so links wont be broken, but if you follow what links here, you can edit the links to all say Street. smurfy (coms) 10:42, May 21, 2015 (UTC)

RE: Emergency Services template

Hi Marcus. I've been thinking about the template and the best name I could think of was "Public Service Stations", as the police, fire and hospitals etc. are classified as "Public Service". Another idea I had was extending that template to take in other emergency services like the Coastguard or Park Ranger, as they are both relevant to GTA games. It would require a lot of coding, which I am near-useless at, but other users like Sean or WildBrick may be able to help you as they are more experienced at creating templates. Sam Talk 15:20, May 21, 2015 (UTC)

Seems like a good idea Sam adding parkranger and coastguard to it seems like a good idea to me of course the same as you im useless at codingTevanoRCMP (talk) 16:22, May 21, 2015 (UTC)

RE:Update

We wait and see how this update turns out. I've been thinking about doing transcripts for GTA V missions, but some of then, especially the heists, have an gigantic amound of alternative dialogues. Dialogues that may or may not play depending of with heist crew member you pick and how many previous heists this crew member participated with you. I have been replaying The Big Score subtle approach, and I counted three possible dialogues with Patrick McReary alone, not counting the other members and even the other amound of dialogue for the obvious approach. Same thing with The Jewel Store Job, theres six possible dialogues between Michael and Franklin on the way to the jewel store on the smart approach depending of with crew member you picked. Doing the transcript for the heists is gonna be tough. - DLVIII Talk 15:32, May 21, 2015 (UTC)

RE:

The Prologue one was a shitload of work already. I'm probably gonna work on them next month (school finishes on June 12th, it'll give me plenty of time and I was planning to do them during the holidays). If 558 is interested in doing transcripts for GTA V, he can start them and eventually if I have time I may complete them and tweak them to deal with the multi-dialogs things.

Obviously the Heists one will be the last because the dialogue options (with the multi-heists crew members thing) are numerous and it'll need time and inputs from others because since I'm using a version with French subtitles it makes things harder, especially since I doubt you can find all heist potential members combinations on Youtube. Monolith Patch Rain - Talk SCS Freedom 10:37, May 22, 2015 (UTC)

Currently I'm busy offline and even online. So transcripts will have to wait until mid-June, unless someone else takes care of it. I fully agree that a 2-men job will do it much better than a single person, but I won't be able to work on them until holidays come. Monolith Patch Rain - Talk SCS Freedom 10:49, May 22, 2015 (UTC)

RE:Infobox

I believe that the first infobox is used in business in general, while the second infobox is only used in business that the player can interact with, like the nightclubs or stip clubs. - DLVIII Talk 19:26, May 24, 2015 (UTC)

RE: Infobox

This tag

{{#ifeq: {{{what you want to use so that it will display the text|}}} | y | what appears on the infobox (must be capital letters) }}

needs to go in two places.

There need to be two of the same tags for it to work - one in the beginning and one at the end - so you have to put it before and after a "|" in the middle of all the tags (cinema tag is right after the "|" you're looking for to make search easier). Make sure to add them in correct order too - if you put a tag in between "cinema" and "military base", you'll have to do the same on the other half.

Can't really explain it better.

There's also a miscplace and miscplacename to add custom tags on page without having to edit the template and adding more tags. "miscplace = y" is needed to make "miscplacename = [custom tag (must be in capital letters)]" appear.

Excessive redirections after page moves

e.g. Michelle (GTA IV). By all means, you can clean up. That one is also a double redirect which you can clean up by redirecting Michelle (GTA IV) to the correct Karen Daniels page rather than the intermediary Karen page. There isn't a specific "rule" about cleaning up redirects - redirects exist to avoid having to do this tedious task every time. But if an editor wants to take the time to fix links that redirect, then there is no rule against that either. smurfy (coms) 10:57, May 26, 2015 (UTC)

Yes, the double-redirects page does need regular attention. I think I did it last in January and cleaned up quite a few of them. Anyone can do the fixes for it, doesn't have to be a staff member (as you've just done with the Michelle>Karen>Karen Daniels one).
Speaking of which, keep up the good work and learning the way you are, and you'll have my support when the next vacancy appears for a patroller. smurfy (coms) 12:56, May 26, 2015 (UTC) 
You should avoid changing anything in the user space (user/talk/blog) but article talk pages can be corrected the same way you are doing with the main pages. User space redirects should be a staff-only task. smurfy (coms) 08:43, May 27, 2015 (UTC)

Doc beat me by about 2 minutes, I got edit conflict as I was getting the images, then renaming the page, then editing in the images. As far as your question about hospitals using the emergency service template, I think the emergency service infobox template will need a bit of work first. I would leave it as the Hospital template for now, at least until we've done the 'mobile infobox' project. smurfy (coms) 08:54, May 31, 2015 (UTC)

Real life parodies

Hey Marcus, about your idea, I don't think it's so necessary but I don't think it's a bad idea either, if you want to add this, sure, go ahead. About the buildings, I don't know, the page says companies so I kinda get confused if they should be there or not, for an example, the Tequi-la-la is interesting and wouldn't be a bad idea to be present in the page, but the first idea, go ahead, I have no problem with that.

RE: Independence Day Releases

It's valid from 1st-6th July (just got the Sovereign about 30 minutes ago at discount price).

The discount won't last for a year. Just the Independence Day vehicles aren't available for purchase in Online throughout the year. Just like you can't buy the Roosevelt at this time. Even if we don't keep it as is, we could always put the fact there was a discount at this time in the trivia sections. ToJ (talk) 13:59, July 1, 2015 (UTC)

I haven't been paying attention

Best you stop using stolen wikiGTA.org maps. You should be using this map as the basis for your street mapping if you can't take screengrabs ingame. Smurfy: illuminate - communicate - spectate 06:12, July 31, 2015 (UTC)

You are making mapping much harder than it needs to be.
Step by step:
  • Open the main map in your browser and find the street.
  • Uncheck the pins to clean the map view.
  • Alt+Printscreen to copy the map page view to your clipboard
  • Paste the screenshot into your preferred image editor (I use Irfanview).
  • Crop your map to 16:9 aspect ratio (e.g. 960x540)
  • Draw your highlight of the street onto the map
  • Save and upload.
Took me less than a minute per map for the 4 I just replaced. Smurfy: illuminate - communicate - spectate 09:52, August 2, 2015 (UTC)

All you have done now is use a smaller resolution "full map". Using the full map each time looks terrible, especially on very short streets like Back Passage. Smurfy: illuminate - communicate - spectate 11:29, August 2, 2015 (UTC)

Yes, much better. Obviously longer North-South streets won't be able to use 16:9 ratio, I would normally try to make them 9:16 though. I doubt it makes any difference with the infobox fixed-width issue though. Smurfy: illuminate - communicate - spectate 12:09, August 2, 2015 (UTC)

Not sure why you want to revert pages to previous versions that are misleading or outright false. The game does not show Trevor killing Debra or Floyd, and it is never clear who kills who. To revert it back to a page that says Trevor is the killer is just wrong.—Preceding unsigned comment added by IanBrettCooper (talkcontribs) Please remember to sign your talk page messages with ~~~~.

There are many possibilities of who killed who. Sure, Trevor could have killed both of them, but that's "COULD HAVE", not "did". The two people with weapons could have killed each other. Floyd could have killed Debra and then picked up her gun and shot himself. Debra could have shot Floyd and then Trevor could have killed her. To say that Trevor killed both of them is to suggest a scenario that is not shown by the game - it's speculation, and a Wiki page shouldn't include speculation.

Re: Time template

Thank you for turning my clock setup into a template. Could you please advise me on how to do that myself, as I am uncertain on exactly how to do that?

EDIT: I have checked the template that you have created for my clock, and I have only one minor complaint: you seem to have turned the "purge" button into a template link, which I deliberately changed into a URL hyperlink so that I could change the color of the button, which is hard to see against the bright yellow background on which the text is placed. Still, thank you very much for your assistance.

TAlim 1994 Konan T-A Lim (talk | contributions) 07:57, September 3, 2015 (UTC)


Thank you for your help. Actually, you inadvertently caused me another problem, as you were editing the template at the same time that I was also trying to fix your error, resulting in an edit conflict. But I do not complain, as your method of making the "purge" button red was much cleaner and more versatile than mine (it can work on other pages, not just my Talk page), and in the end I decided to revert my own edit to your version, with some minor changes (not visible on the actual template).

With regards to what I meant by my initial question, I was asking you how to create a clock template with modifiable parameters (time offset from Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)), the same as what you did.

Once again, thank you for your assistance. I only wish that you had helped yesterday, as I spent several hours getting the clock to display my local time without a template, which was a very boring trial-and-error process.

TAlim 1994 Konan T-A Lim (talk | contributions) 10:06, September 3, 2015 (UTC)


Thank you very much for your assistance. May I ask what platform you play Grand Theft Auto V on? Personally I currently play it on both the Xbox 360 and Xbox One, but I eventually intend to purchase it for the P.C. as well, primarily for the portability, as I am purchasing a powerful gaming mobile P.C. (laptop) soon.

TAlim 1994 Konan T-A Lim (talk | contributions) 12:05, September 3, 2015 (UTC)


I must admit that I am somewhat surprised that you enjoy Grand Theft Auto IV more than Grand Theft Auto V, as I personally find it rather lacking when compared to Grand Theft Auto V. However, each to his own. Besides, I assume that you are referring more to the single player experience, as opposed to the multiplayer one. As you can probably tell by the greeting on my Talk page, I do not like bad language, and so I rarely play the single player story of either GTA IV or GTA V, preferring to only play the multiplayer of both games (there is less swearing in them, excluding other random players, whom I generally avoid talking to), of which GTA V (Grand Theft Auto Online) is almost indisputably better.

Once again, thank you for your help; I was able to get three clocks on my Talk page - for three time zones - as I intended.

Request for Promotion

Good day, I was advised by Leon Davis to send my request for promotion to the position of Patroller to all the current GTA Wiki Staff. The following was copied from the Requests for Promotion page, aside from the timestamp, which is current at the time of sending.

P.S.: I apologize if you have already responded on the Requests for Promotion page; this message was sent to all members of the GTA Wiki Staff, regardless of if they have already voted.

TAlim 1994 - Patroller

Good day sir/madam, I have an interest in the position of Patroller on this wiki. I have been active since 25 May 2015 on this wiki, but have been editing since 18 December 2012 (on Halo Nation), though I have been most active on this wiki. I have made 511 edits (at the time of writing this message) since joining this wiki: mostly minor spelling or grammatical corrections (a few of these edits were made within a short period of time to the same page due to missed errors in my earlier edit(s)), and a relatively small number of more major page changes. I have not had any warnings and/or blocks, and as far as I am aware, only two of my edits (excluding my personal templates) to date have been undone: one due to ignorance of context, the other due to a contentious trivia article which I am currently seeking to discuss with "RainingPain17" (see my Talk page for more information regarding these reversions). I also seek to help other users where possible. On a personal note, I am keen on the idea of being an observer/arbitrator, as I intend to study to qualify as a lawyer, and I regard this as a test of sorts. I hope that you will approve. Thank you for your time.

Hello, I was wondering: what exactly did you mean by, "the fact that he was in chat every time but did not report any misbehaviours makes me think that he may not use his tools after all"? If you were referring to Live Chat, I was never actually there when I seemed to be, as I did not realize that I was still in the Chat after that day when you assisted with the clock template. I thought that the Chat disconnected automatically when there is only one person in it. I only recently realized that I was still in it. Sorry about that. How does one leave the Chat?

Image Policy reminder removal

Hello, may I ask why you removed the Image Policy reminder that I issued to "Swaggkidd010? An image was uploaded by him that had an incorrect name, which was the reason why I issued the reminder. Your edit summary merely read "NO", which did not provide me with an adequate reason for the removal, hence this message.

TAlim 1994 Konan T-A Lim (talk | contributions) 13:00, September 7, 2015 (UTC)


Thank you for that; it is rather strange that image uploads do not count as edits. I am trying to take up your advice, and become more active in moderating. By the way, I actually have a problem with the "ImageLicence" template, and I was hoping that you can help. Every time I try to sign the template using the method mentioned in the instructions on the template, the template looks like this:

Images Licensing/Naming

Danger-icon
We kindly ask all of our contributors to please properly name and/or license all images that you upload to the wiki. Image licensing and naming is part of our official Media Policy, and as such, it is asked of all users to respect the policy and add a proper name & license when uploading as described here.

Licenses
Whenever you upload an image to the wiki, towards the bottom of the page there is an option to add a license.

  • For images that are game screenshots, use the appropriate Screenshots & in-game logos.
  • For non-game screenshots (pictures taken from the web etc.), select This image is used under Fair Use.
  • For images that are not licensed, e.g. images you have created from scratch yourself, select This is in the Public Domain.

Names
As a general rule of thumb, image names should follow the following pattern:

"PageSubjectName-GTAgame-OptionalDescription.png"

The name can be modified in the bar right above the "add license" option when you are uploading it, and must match with the Media Policy (a table of correct names can be seen here).

What you should do now
Because your recent upload was non-compliant, you are now expected to take steps to fix the issues with your file(s). There is a detailed tutorial on how to do this here.

If you have any questions about the policy, please use the dedicated section, or if you need assistance fixing your files, please contact me on [[User talk: contributions) 14:24, September 7, 2015 (UTC)|my talk page]] or that of any other staff member.

Ignoring this message can lead to the file(s) you uploaded being deleted and possibly to a block if you continue to ignore the policy on subsequent uploads. For more information on licensing and copyright, see here.

Thank you!

TAlim 1994 Konan T-A Lim (talk

In case you missed it, the problem is that my signature does not show up correctly, requiring me to sign again underneath the template, which is inconvenient when I am trying to go through images quickly. Do you know how to fix this issue?

TAlim 1994 Konan T-A Lim (talk | contributions) 14:24, September 7, 2015 (UTC)


I see. Thank you for explaining what does or does not count as an edit. With regards to the problematic template, I have already been signing after the template, since neither of us seem to know why my signature does not render in the template correctly. My working theory is that it might have something to do with the fact that I have a unlinked character string - my real name - after my Wikia name. I have already brought this up with Sam, and I am awaiting his reply; hopefully he can assist me.

Hello Marcus, I was going to assist Leon with his malfunctioning clock, but I have noticed that you have already made an edit to the template today. To ensure that I do not fix what has already been fixed, I must ask: have you already fixed Leon's clock?

TAlim 1994 - Konan T-A Lim (talk | contributions) 06:46, October 13, 2015 (UTC)


Thank you for saving me the work. I will post a message on both Leon's and Monk's Talk pages notifying them of the fix.

All right, never mind then. Thank you once again.

Request for Promotion

Good day, I have made a request for promotion to the position of Patroller. I have left this message to all GTA Wiki Staff and posted a copy of my application below for convenience. Please note that the timestamp on this message is current at the time of posting this message, not at the time of posting the Request for Promotion.

P.S.: I apologize if you have already responded on the Requests for Promotion page; this message was sent to all members of the GTA Wiki Staff, regardless of if they have already voted.

TAlim 1994 - Patroller (re-application)

Good day, I wish to re-apply for the position of Patroller. My reasons remain the same as my last application, and I only wish to add two other notes: firstly, as per the advice of other Staff members, I have attempted to take a more active role as a policy enforcer since my last application, and I have issued several Image Policy reminders to the appropriate users; secondly, I have now (at the time of writing this message) made 1,097 edits on this wiki (including the creation of one new page), approximately double the number of edits made since my previous application.

Re: Congratulations

Thank you for the congratulations. I hope to be a good Patroller.

Staff world map

Thank you for adding the Navbox for GTA Wiki Staff to my User page. Could you also update the world map showing the location of Staff members to include my location? I live next to the Sydney Central Business District (C.B.D.), so put my location as Sydney.

TAlim 1994 - Konan T-A Lim (talk | contributions) 13:29, October 29, 2015 (UTC)


Good to know. I will put it on my User page shortly. What is the filename? Also, apologies for not signing my last message: I have since done so.

Re: Images Licensing/Naming

This is news to me, I assumed images uploaded solely to personal user pages were exempt as the user page is essentially yours to do with as you wish. Thank you for notifying me. I'll fix it now.--UserSigLeighBurne (talk) 13:50, November 13, 2015 (UTC)

Further to my last, it seems I can't alter the licensing without re-uploading the image. I don't have access to the files at the moment, but I'll get around to it as soon as I have a chance. If you wish to delete the offending images in the meantime could you please let me know so I can alter my user page appropriately.--UserSigLeighBurne (talk) 13:53, November 13, 2015 (UTC)
Ah, I see. I assumed you wanted it done using the drop-down menu that appears when you actually upload the files. Thanks again.--UserSigLeighBurne (talk) 14:00, November 13, 2015 (UTC)

Map

Hey Marcus. I removed the map image from your user page as I decided to incorporate the image into the staff navigation box itself, meaning it was no longer needed as a separate image on your user page. Thanks! Monk Talk 11:41, November 27, 2015 (UTC)

Sorry, but I have the original copy without any Staff on (just the annotations and wording, etc), so that won't be possible. Unless of course you work out what colours I used and somehow remove the staff and the lines to them. Monk Talk 12:31, November 27, 2015 (UTC)

Yeah go ahead then. Monk Talk 13:13, November 27, 2015 (UTC)

Mission Transcripts

Honestly, I don't see any point of having the transcription on the mission page if there is already a separate page for it. Keeping on the same page just makes it look messy an untidy, no to mention that you are repeating the same content into two pages.

We usually leave a redirect to the subpage using the {{Main|Main Page/Subpage}} template, so why this would be different? Thegtaseeker96 (talk) 13:33, December 11, 2015 (UTC)

Now I (partially) agree with you, I must admit that it can be easier for users to access the transcripts on mission pages. There's still one problem, however: this automatically adds the Category:Mission Transcripts and Category:Mission Transcripts in GTA IV to the mission page, which means that the pages listed on the "Read More" section may be a mix between Mission Pages and their transcriptions itself. Is there any way you can fix it? Thegtaseeker96 (talk) 16:24, December 11, 2015 (UTC)
I don't know if I can do it right, but I'll try and see what happens xD Thegtaseeker96 (talk) 17:17, December 11, 2015 (UTC)
Hey, Marcus there are only the Vice City mission transcripts to be fixed. I'm done for today, so if you come back before me, please take care of this category. Thanks! Thegtaseeker96 (talk) 23:35, December 11, 2015 (UTC)

GTA Online: EaOC Clothing

Hey Marcus! Just came here to let you know that I moved the clothing section from the update to Clothing in GTA Online, since it is more appropriate there (IMO). Hope you don't mind. If you do have any questions or disagree about something, please leave a message and we can discuss about it. Thanks! Thegtaseeker96 (talk) 14:40, December 17, 2015 (UTC)

Well, if you see the other update pages, they do mention when new clothing is added, however none of them feature a detailed clothing list such as you did to the EaOC update. I only removed to make the page follow the same style of the others (I don't know if this is a real standard that should be followed though). I'd support you if you could do the same with other update pages, or at least the majority of them. Thegtaseeker96 (talk) 12:50, December 18, 2015 (UTC)
This is defitively a To-do list task. However, have you considered creating a subpage like "GTA Online EaOC/Character Custumization"?. The clothing list takes up too much space, and if you ever plan to expand this section in other update pages (which contain not only clothing, but also tatoos, haircuts, etc), that'd be the best choice to make the pages more organized and similar to each other. What do you think? Thegtaseeker96 (talk) 14:51, December 18, 2015 (UTC)
Nice! Just create the page and leave a link in dedicated section and problem is solved. When you feel you're ready, do the same with other updates. I'll see if I can help you starting with the Beach Bum Update ;) Thegtaseeker96 (talk) 15:05, December 18, 2015 (UTC)
I have created the page. You can swing by and edit if you see any problem ;) Thegtaseeker96 (talk) 18:51, December 18, 2015 (UTC)
It looks nice, even more organized than before. Thegtaseeker96 (talk) 14:47, December 21, 2015 (UTC)

RE: Pics

Only naming them was somewhat a pain, trying to weed out duplicates or bad images (which I failed to do so anyway, lol) is also a bit annoying. With multiupload, uploading them was fast and easy and taking the screenshots was literally pressing a button on my keyboard.

About the EaOC images, I am aware of the existing ones but they all have a watermark on them which I don't think should be there unless it's a pre-release screenshot where said watermark can't be removed and is genuinely "owned" by a group/person.

About the hats, I can't take screenshots of them as I don't have them in the shop or my inventory for some reason. Also thanks for making the tables. V-michael-trunk-miniV-franklin-trunk-miniV-trevor-trunk-mini 13:23, December 22, 2015 (UTC)

RE: Festive Surprise 2015

Thanks man! After Christmas I'm probably going to get some work done on other update pages with multiple artworks. Whoever does these must put a LOT of time into them, and I think treating them with equal respect is good. Whatever, I'll start on the Beach Bum page or something. Merry Christmas! Mortsnarg (talk) 03:25, December 25, 2015 (UTC)

Mule

Hey Marcus! I noticed that you uploaded a "stock" version in LCS for the VHG. If you could take a pic without the pedestrian appearing, that'd be great. Anyways, just wanted to offer my thanks for your work on the Image Gallery. Thegtaseeker96 (talk) 15:15, December 29, 2015 (UTC)

So you play on iPhone? Can't imagine how difficult it is to drive there xD Good work anyways. PS: Happy new year for you too ;) Thegtaseeker96 (talk) 15:37, December 29, 2015 (UTC)
There's some problems with your last image: It's darker, it's raining and the front wheels are missing. The previous one was better, you just need crop the pedestrian out of the image and it's fine. What do you think? Thegtaseeker96 (talk) 15:59, December 29, 2015 (UTC)
Well, I sorted the problem for ya. Hope you don't mind ;) Thegtaseeker96 (talk) 16:33, December 29, 2015 (UTC)

Regarding my Community Noticeboard proposal

Good day. I apologise if this comes across as impolite, but I have made a proposal on the Community Noticeboard that has (as of the sending of this message) been running for over a week, and has so far only received three votes (four if one were to count myself). I am anxious to have the vote closed so that I will know if I should or should not implement the proposed changes. Could all Staff members please vote on my proposal? Thank you.

P.S.: I apologise if you have already voted, as I have sent this message to all Staff members.

Regarding your resignation

Good day Marcus, I just wish to inform you that I have removed the "Patroller" template from your User and Talk pages, as you are no longer a Patroller. I am sorry to see you resign, and I hope to see you editing here still, as you are the only other Singaporean user that I know relatively well. Thank you.
