Hi, welcome to GTA Wiki. Thanks for contributing to the File:GTA San Andreas Official Trailer (Xbox) page, and for taking interest in the wiki. Please leave a message on my talk page if I can help with anything, or as alternatives, leave a post on a forum, or refer to the Help pages. -- Winter Moon (Talk) 08:38, April 1, 2012


Do not post information which is unconfirmed. For example adding pictures of people which have green clothes from GTA V to the GSF page is illogical and doing so may get you banned. Jeansowaty2 (talk) 15:34, April 30, 2013 (UTC)Jeansowaty2

Uh, okay just post the information. Although, Rockstar said that no content from GTA III era will come back so it's highly unlikely. It may be possible that the green ones are a different gang and the purple ones are also a different gang than the GSF & Ballas.EDIT: Yes they aren't the same gangs but they are some kind of reference.Just look at the sites Magnetics, The Hills Jeansowaty2 (talk) 18:03, April 30, 2013 (UTC)Jeansowaty2
Alright, ask.Jeansowaty2 (talk) 18:10, April 30, 2013 (UTC)Jeansowaty2
I'm still sceptic about it. Let's wait for GTA V to finally get released and we will know if it will be the GSF Families or a different, similiar gang :P. Jeansowaty2 (talk) 10:26, May 3, 2013 (UTC)Jeansowaty2
Jeansowaty, check the news, video games sites confirmed the return of GSF, Ballas and Los Santos Vagos.Dodo8 Talk


Excuse me did you play GTA San Andreas and did you also used mod in the game if yes i wanna ask why everytime im changing skin it's freeze did you know why ? Vegito SS3 (talk) 16:06, April 30, 2013 (UTC)


Yes, I read the article. I only added that name it because we didn't know at that point if they are called the Grove Street Families.Dodo8 Talk


Picking up girls?...HAHAHAH Sammyrock0087 (talk) 17:39, May 5, 2013 (UTC)


Hey RHMB. I've already renamed it.

You're welcome. :)

Forgot it

Ok. Just forgot to change the license. Jeansowaty2 (talk) 18:50, May 15, 2013 (UTC)jeansowaty2

Sure. Jeansowaty2 (talk) 18:58, May 15, 2013 (UTC)Jeansowaty2


Nah you're alright. Sammyrock0087 (talk) 22:30, May 15, 2013 (UTC)


And you forgot to sign your message. Which freakin' picture have I posted with the wrong name? Jeansowaty 16:47, May 27, 2013 (UTC)Jeansowaty2


Yeah, that wasn't me who added that. In which section of the Niko Bellic page can I find that? -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 12:39, October 15, 2013 (UTC)

RE: Adder's Cultural References

The Bugatti on Rodeo Drive is very famous. It is always parked there and is pretty unique, being owned by a late celebrity. The Adder parked on Portola Drive is in the same exact spot, and also has similar paint jobs. Carl Johnson Jr. (talk) 21:03, November 22, 2013 (UTC)

RE: Sunnyside Taxis

If I remember correctly, Sunnyside was a district in GTA 2. Then in Vice City they made Sunnyside Taxis, and in GTA San Andreas they were going to make a district in San Fierro called Sunnyside but they scrapped it. Due to a glitch somewhere in Los Santos police chatter refers to it as "Sunnyside". RageQuit (talk) 01:17, December 2, 2013 (UTC)

I'm very sorry

Now I won't undo it, because I have a proof. Prior to this I didn't had one. That's why I removed it. Jeansowaty 14:34, December 3, 2013 (UTC)Jeansowaty

OK, ok... I'm very sorry... Jeansowaty 14:55, December 3, 2013 (UTC)Jeansowaty


Oh crap, didn't know that it's a mod. We'll better remove it I guess. Jeansowaty 11:39, December 22, 2013 (UTC)Jeansowaty

Seems so. The only leftover of a beta skin I remember is Beta Big Smoke's skin located inside the txd of his statue. Oh and btw, I've seen you're making a BETA SA mod. Are you going to do the Beta Triads as I mentioned 'em? And, will there be skins from The Introduction? Jeansowaty 12:01, December 26, 2013 (UTC)Jeansowaty


No images have been deleted. It's a glitch which Wikia should be fixing soon, so leave it as it is for now. Tom Talk 10:32, January 10, 2014 (UTC)

Can you give me some tips, i am new here and would like to know what to start on it thanks :D

Tbrown10048 (talk) 23:51, January 24, 2014 (UTC)Tbrown10048


Hi, thanks for some of the tips, they helped but i need some in depth help on how to do a page AKA, Layout, Position and all that stuff, please help

RE: Baller Sport

You seem to be right. Baller Sport was never the confirmed name, it was just used once in the article by someone. I'll change that. Carl Johnson Jr. (talk) 23:52, May 9, 2014 (UTC)

Page question

I was reading your page and I was a bit confused - it said you were born in 1987, but then it said you commited petty crimes to fly to Las Venturas in 1996, when you would've been 9. If that's the joke, it went over my head, but I thought you could enlighten me a bit. Universetwisters (talk) 23:58, May 16, 2014 (UTC)

re. Page question

It's still silly to think that a kid would steal stuff and fly out to LV, but whatever floats your boat.

And what do you mean by the real universetwisters? The one from gtaforums? In that case, yep. Universetwisters (talk) 01:53, May 18, 2014 (UTC) page question

If you didn't know where I was from, where did you know about my name?

And I can't say I heard much about kids searching for mobsters when they're nine or being asked to join a gang at the age of four...Universetwisters (talk) 17:03, May 18, 2014 (UTC)

Re. Hipster Cars pictures

Yeah, dude, thanks a lot for the pointers about the pics. I'm using the pictures posted from the GTA Forums by now as placeholders and reference. They can be modified later on with crispier, clearer pictures and with proper naming, by now they're just placeholders. :) DonVecta (talk) 14:12, June 17, 2014 (UTC)

RE: Placeholders

Go for it, dude. No worries. You could keep the pics I uploaded as part of the gallery, but your images could look better as the main pics. Thanks. :) DonVecta (talk) 14:22, June 17, 2014 (UTC)


You can't really relate vehicles just because of the type they are. These vehicles are of different manufacturers, each with their own designs.

RE: Licenses

My bad, I really don't know how to do the license thing. As I said, I've got the images from the GTA Forums and use them as placeholders. I've got them from these thread:


Hi Ben, in case you think a page has to be deleted but the reason is not obvious enough, please use {{Prod}} instead of {{Delete}}. Thank you. Monolith Patch Rain - Talk SCS Freedom 13:08, October 31, 2014 (UTC)

Lost Slamvan

Thanks for proving me wrong and that it does appear. Do you know when it unlocks and where it is obtainable?  smurfy (coms) 21:27, March 13, 2015 (UTC)

Thanks. It had already been clarified that it doesn't actually "unlock" and only appears in missions. So the Slam"van" is an even more locked-down version of the Clown Van (although at least the Clown Van can be driven in races and is a fully operational model).  smurfy (coms) 21:11, March 19, 2015 (UTC)

Images Licensing/Naming

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.

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.

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


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 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!

T20 P1 vs Raptor

Nope. Yellow promo shot and red promo shot have 2 different customised hoods, nether necessarily the stock one. There are a couple of similarities to the Raptor but too many differences to be claimed as the primary influence. FWIW, I don't think it looks much like a P1 either but until we see it in stock trim that's probably the best we have to go on. smurfy (coms) 07:23, July 1, 2015 (UTC)

Yeah, The P1 thing is wishful thinking from many I feel. I'm tending away from any McLaren every minute... but there's still not enough of the Raptor in the T20 either to claim it is based ON that. smurfy (coms) 07:55, July 1, 2015 (UTC)


Hey, I've commented out the pre-release statement as we have tightened up on beta/cut content and require this to be verifiably sourced before being allowed to be added. Otherwise, I do agree, no evidence this is a restaurant. Smurfy: illuminate - communicate - spectate 02:18, January 19, 2018 (UTC)

I guess that explains a lot. By the way, I just reverted your first edit because you only changed the infobox text, even though the main text still refered to it as "restaurant", so that sounded biased and confusing. Your second edit was fine, though, as you properly changed anything related to restaurant to the corresponding furniture store. --BodyArmor-GTACW-Android SWAT Cam F VehicleWeapon-GTACW-Android Detonator-GTACW-Android Crate-GTACW-Android 02:37, January 19, 2018 (UTC)
Yeah because I was still editing it. Anyway source is there on smurfy's page and like I said could someone un do Ronald's edits and make sure they don't fuck about with it again, thanks. Also someone update him please. Rentedhitmanben (talk) 02:46, January 19, 2018 (UTC)
Dude, take a chill pill. If I didn't know who you were, I would have just deleted it and not been as courteous as I was above. That said, you are not getting any sort of immunity from the undo button here. Cleaning up the old unsourced "beta" crap is a long term ambition, but the first step in that is, as I said above, not permitting any new unsourced beta info to be added. If your source can't remain on the page as a citable source, it's not really a source is it?  Smurfy: illuminate - communicate - spectate 02:48, January 19, 2018 (UTC)
No need for a chill pill man, though I don't want to seem like I'm annoyed at you, just at the fact that wikia hasn't got the best reputation for this kind of stuff, and when I think oh well I give it a try someone reverts my edit before I could even finish. And yes you are absolutely right about the citations, but could you just wait with them please. Rentedhitmanben (talk) 02:57, January 19, 2018 (UTC)
Yeah, no problem, that's why I've just commented it out rather than deleted from the page. As soon as it can be cited, it can be "uncommented" (and possibly expanded upon). Smurfy: illuminate - communicate - spectate 03:01, January 19, 2018 (UTC)
Well, your comments did very much come across as a "don't you know who I am?" kind of tone :D You may not have noticed but there has certainly been a change in "protective" activity around here from the staff and other editors in the last couple of years. While some nonsense invariably does still get through, I think we've improved a hell of a lot in terms of preventing fanon content masquerading as legit info. p.s. an edit summary saying you were "in progress" or adding an "Under Construction" template (which I have now added) probably would have avoided the edit conflict with the patrollers. Smurfy: illuminate - communicate - spectate 03:27, January 19, 2018 (UTC)
Well, like I said it was not my intention, but you're right I should have read it twice before sending it, but do understand that I was trying to get a point accross while being extremely frustrated by the way your patrollers have been treating me, especially with an edit that they had no evidence for. Next time just ask (not you, you have, them), or just as Camillio has done later, just watch and wait, unlike the other fellow, whom just tried to be the hero of the day and reverted it, yet again. I don't expect immunity, but I think atleast I deserve trust, and unlike what I might have sounded like (for which again,sorry) I do not expect everyone to know me, especially here which as you know I am not active on wikia and that is why I have asked you to just give a heads up to the staff.
