RE: Discord

Well, I suppose I could consider a return, even if I was pretty much "dead" over there. Let me check. --BodyArmor-GTACW-Android.png SWAT Cam F VehicleWeapon-GTACW-Android.png Dispatch Data Files 22:10, January 14, 2020 (UTC)

Reverted Edits

I would like an explanation as of why you are changing the edits that I have been making, seeing as those top speeds have been observed by me —Preceding unsigned comment added by Swagfaq69 (talkcontribs) Please remember to sign your talk page messages with ~~~~. User blocked indefinitely.

The Exchange (GTA III) Page

Hey Mat (I have a habit call someone by the first letters of their usernames), you can call me "Sam". I'm a fan of GTA III, Vice & San. I notice that on the page The Exchange (GTA III) has many incorrect things like "One Cartel member gets in a Barracks and tries to run over Claude", it's actually a Flatbed (many people often mistake this) so I changed it to a Flatbed & left a link to my video in summary (because I uploaded a video about the mission The Exchange on Feb 15) & I found many interesting things that most players don't notice during this mission and those things don't appear on the page yet. Can I add those things to the Wiki & create a link like "a video of this can be seen here"? I notice there are many videos like this as well
Sorry for my bad grammar.
NguyenAnhLam (talk) 14:45, February 17, 2020 (UTC)

You can correct the details, but you do not have to insert anything along the lines of "a video of this can be seen here". Matrexpingvin (talk) 17:22, February 18, 2020 (UTC)
So you mean I can add the video's link alongside the details, right? Well, before I starting as a YouTube gamer, I did add many interesting details but the admins seem didn't trust me & they just undo my editions, the Catalyst mission is an example. But they are not wrong, I know, because without a video, people won't believe. Sorry for my bad grammar ;-;

Rocket Voltic - Pulse

Does this article still classify as a stub now, or does it not? I'm asking because I've added a large chunk of details in the Description section and you have previewed it but the article is still a stub. Is there something missing in the article? UnpublishedPuns33 (talk) 20:23, February 24, 2020 (UTC)

I've now removed the stub template. Matrexpingvin (talk) 22:53, February 24, 2020 (UTC)

Twin Shadow Quotes Edits

Hey! Sorry to bug you, but I recenetly made edits on Twin Shadow Quotes, and a few of them were removed by another user without an edit messages. Not sure about the rules really, I just wanted to add some quotes recently since I'm a big fan of radio mirror park.

Is there anything I did wrong, or anything I don't know? Thanks!

Casino Restrictions

Hey Matrexpingvin! I'm here with a question about the Diamond Casino & Resort: why can't I spin the Lucky Wheel or use the slot machines? You see, in this wiki it says that standard membership owners has access to these features, and I'm sure I do have a standard membership (which granted me access to the valet service). Mind answering my petty question? :) Ol' MacDonald (talk) 11:39, February 27, 2020 (UTC)Ol' MacDonald

The features you listed are not available in certain countries due to government laws; you can find the list of countries here. Now, pardon me if I'm wrong, but as you have your nationality listed as Chinese, I assume you are from China, which is one of the countries that has those features unavailable. Matrexpingvin (talk) 12:02, February 27, 2020 (UTC)
Thanks a lot! And FYI, I am Chinese. Too bad I can't get the PR4... :(Ol' MacDonald (talk) 03:10, February 28, 2020 (UTC)Ol' MacDonald

Hi Matrex, I was wondering if you can help me get the logos/images of the following missing business pages iam interested in adding to the wiki. These are all Businesses located in Mirror Park and have no page yet.

  • The Banjo String
  • Betta Life Pharmacy
  • Eclipse Pharmacy
  • Hearty Taco
  • Mile High Organics
  • Mini Retro
  • Mirror Fashion
  • New Do Barber Shop
  • Reflex Nails
  • Squeeze One Out
  • Vinewood Sole

Thank you Steve316 (talk) 14:16, March 20, 2020 (UTC)

I can get you images of the businesses if I can find them, but I won't be able to provide logo textures, as I'm not too familiar with OpenIV. Matrexpingvin (talk) 14:53, March 20, 2020 (UTC)
Okay images of the above businesses will be great too. As soon as they are avialbale can you notify me or strike them out here?
Thank you Steve316 (talk) 15:14, March 20, 2020 (UTC)
I've now uploaded 1080p images of the businesses you've listed. However, Hearty Taco and New Do Barber Shop already have articles. Matrexpingvin (talk) 16:37, March 20, 2020 (UTC)
Thank you so much and sorry I sent you the list based on missing links under businesses of Mirror Park Steve316 (talk) 16:41, March 20, 2020 (UTC)



On inspection of the map you will notice it is Sandy Shores for the location.

The location currently is given as Paleto Bay.

Thanks for all your help with the Easter Eggs, much appreciated.


Shinklebin (talk) 05:50, April 9, 2020 (UTC)

Yes, thank you. I've edited the page so it correctly states that it's found in Sandy Shores. Matrexpingvin (talk) 06:32, April 9, 2020 (UTC)

Number of Missions

Does anyone here know how many missions (including side-missions) there are in each Grand Theft Auto game (including the first game's expansion packs, Grand Theft Auto IV's expansion packs, and Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars)? TTL GS (talk) 13:59, April 9, 2020 (UTC)TTL GS

Well, for a list of missions, you can search for the "Missions in [insert game here]" articles. For all missions, side missions, ..., you can check this page. Matrexpingvin (talk) 14:51, April 9, 2020 (UTC)

Italicised Article Names

How are the articles about games italicized here?

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) 18:10, April 17, 2020 (UTC)

Discount information removal?

Can I ask why you removed the discount information I added? Discounts, especially material ones (25%+) can offer significant reductions on expensive items. Knowing when and how often items get discounted can help players better spend and invest their money. MikeWard1701 (talk) 17:48, May 2, 2020 (UTC)

Information on all discounts and bonuses can already be found in a separate section on the DLC articles (such as this one), as well as on the event week articles. This information is updates as soon as possible when new discounts are available by me and fellow staff member BolbiiS; there is no need for this info on individual vehicle/business pages. Thank you. Matrexpingvin (talk) 19:47, May 2, 2020 (UTC)
Having discounts listed on item pages seems a more logical choice, especially for items costing $1,000,000+, historic discount information can help predict how often and when the next discount is likely to occur. I didn't know this wiki documented event weeks until a few days ago, and it seems counterintuitive to make someone trawl though dozens of event pages to see when an item they're interested in was last discounted, if ever.
The wiki could do with a promotions/discounts portal, a central place where players, particularly new ones can find out about things that can net them free or discounted money/items, such as the Social Club 2-factor authentication and Twitch Prime cash bonuses. MikeWard1701 (talk) 20:15, May 2, 2020 (UTC)

Crew Emblem Location


What are your thoughts on adding a row in the vehicles tab for location and applicability - and of course price - of crew emblems? Under the respray row for example. This information is not presented anywhere at the moment in a standardized format.

Need logo and some images if possible

Hi Matrexpingvin hope you're doing good 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 or any graphics/images related to it from GTA IV if possible as the logo I've uploaded is of very low resolution. Thank you Steve316 (talk) 07:50, May 26, 2020 (UTC)

Hello. I want to use the Soviet flag on the article Dimitri Rascalov but I cannot seem to get the flag icon. You know how the nationality section has this: Flag of Russia.svg Russian, I need it as: {{Flagicon|Soviet Union|Flag of the Soviet Union}} Soviet 1969-1991 and: Flag of Russia.svg Russian 1991 present or since 1991.

Edit to Habanero Page

Hello, my post was not mod-related. No matter how damaged the Habanero gets in-game the hood will never open, not even when the vehicle is exploded. This seems to be a unfixed game bug.

Changing Username

hey, just noticed the edit you made on my talk page. sorry, I'm new with wiki pages and I just wanted to contribute. maybe I should have read first :P. also, how can I change my username? I dont know how I got this username in the first place anyways

Unpleased with Sudden Deletion


I started typing up an article on a GTA III character. It was undeveloped. Also tagged as is. I was not NEAR finished with it. I was going to work on the next fifth of it tonight when I found it was not on the article search list. I went to a tab where I had left editing open, it was deleted. It noted who did delete it (You). 

Not interested in using this kind of wiki anymore. Articles always get deleted a few hours after I type the base version, and they're marked as so. Maybe I will use Grand Theft Wiki instead.

It was marked as poor layout. As said, it was no where near finished. Also marked as untrue, or something that is without proof or something similar. All was completely factual. I have observed the entire story of GTA III.

Never mind that, may try typing minor articles in the future. Shifting focus to other less important wiki.

Will be in contact in the near future. AdminBob5 (talk) 01:22, June 30, 2020 (UTC)Digfigwig666, or Bob5AdminBob5 (talk) 01:22, June 30, 2020 (UTC)

Hello; your article was deleted as it was originally thought to be unneeded; the accomplice has only roughly ten seconds of screen time, has no dialogue, and sports a generic cartel skin. After a discussion on our Discord server, we decided that while information is quite scarce, he should have his own article, so I have restored it.
You also pointed out the article was not yet completed, but you did not indicate this with the {{Under Construction}} template, nor did you notify us of this in the edit summary. In the future when creating unfinished articles, I would implore you to mark them with this template at the top, thank you.
As for you potentially moving to Grand Theft Wiki: we prefer readers using our Wiki, but perhaps you can try resurrecting that wiki or becoming friends with the tumbleweed there. Matrexpingvin (talk) 10:01, June 30, 2020 (UTC)
RE: Unpleased with sudden deletion,
Thanks for the formal letter of recognision. This sort of predicament has happened twice before this. I am still not happy with the trigger-happy deletion nonsense, but you have my thanks. 
I am going to be doing things at Grand Theft Wiki for a while. Might be back here in a couple of months.

As stated before, the decision to delete the page (and reinstate it) was not made impetuously, but rather after a discussion with other editors. If you'd like to waste your time improving the dying Grand Theft Wiki, go right ahead. Matrexpingvin (talk) 11:01, June 30, 2020 (UTC)
Helpful, thanks.
I see a cleanup of the article has been done. Thanks. Also GTW is doing okay. Even though the character only gets a visible 7-10 seconds of screen time, some articles still exist where there is no backstory, no screen time, and only one mention. No problem though. Look forward to GTA Wiki expanding more in the months to come.

CEO/VIP Challenges

Hey, I noticed that some Challenges such as Market Manipulation do not currently have any articles and I was thinking of creating said articles. Would this be a good idea? UnpublishedPuns33 (talk) 21:37, July 6, 2020 (UTC)

Yes! I've recently started improving VIP Work and Challenges articles myself (only done Asset Recovery and Hostile Takeover so far). It would be much appreciated if you helped by creating any of those missing articles. Matrexpingvin (talk) 22:13, July 6, 2020 (UTC)

Non-wiki-related, just a question about GTA V itself

Sorry for the random question, but do different enemies have different AIs? I.E. NOOSE being more aggressive than normal LSPD or Deputy Sheriffs? Thanks. —Preceding unsigned comment added by LETMESIGNUPNOW (talkcontribs) 08/07/2020 Please remember to sign your talk page messages with ~~~~.

Content Creator Article

Would it be a good idea to add more articles about the content creator, like Content Creator/Survival? Like the article(s) could include the different functions of how this or that works and could potentially help the player out in creating said Job as most don't know how this or that works, even if the game itself explains it to them. Content Creator/Stunt Race was created by Monk a while back but is pretty outdated now. Thanks. UnpublishedPuns33 (talk) 00:06, July 28, 2020 (UTC)

Yes, these articles are welcomed. If you wish to create any and/or update the Stunt Race one, feel free to do so. Matrexpingvin (talk) 09:36, July 28, 2020 (UTC)

Important information about your former Admin


I am Sasquatch101 the founder and Beauracrat of the GTA Myths Wiki. One of my staff have revealed to me that your former Admin User:Thomas0802 was involved in an off site voter fraud group that also held extreme racist and anti semitic beliefs. He partook in rigging numerous votes on the GTA Myth Wiki and conspired to replace most of the staff with members of his hate group. I suggest you ban him on your site out of principle and caution in case he resurfaces. Please feel free to contact me if you want to discuss this further.--Sasquatch101 (talk) 22:55, August 4, 2020 (UTC)
