Welcome

Hi, welcome to GTA Wiki. Thanks for contributing to the AP Pistol 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. The Tom (talk) 01:38, March 16, 2014 (UTC)

Spelling

Sanitary One or more recent edits you have made seem to have been to change a term or spelling from UK English to US English or vice versa.

The wiki policy is that we accept both English UK and English US spelling, since the game is developed in the UK and set in the US. We don't need to specify both spellings on any articles, nor do we encourage editors to "correct" any spelling from one correct version to another. Note that vehicle pages are an exception, where spelling is dictated by the in-game country of origin of the vehicle as described on the Vehicles Manual of Style. Please avoid making further "corrections" of this nature.

Thank you.

User page

The reason I have added an "unofficial" tag to your page is because you are adding fan-fiction content to your page. Apologies if it appears pedantic, but it's just to signify the content. SJWalker (talk) 18:28, March 27, 2015 (UTC)

Infoboxes

Please, don't compress the mission infoboxes, it only make then harder and more confusing to edit afterwards. DLVIII Talk 21:25, October 22, 2015 (UTC)

Warning

Danger-icon
You have been warned for violating the policy. If you repeat your actions, you will be issued with a block.

• ­Given reason: Constantly compacting info boxes despite summary warnings and talk page explanations
• ­Issued by: Monkeypolice188-Signature-2Monkeypolice188-Signature-4Monkeypolice188-Signature-3 17:55, October 30, 2015 (UTC)


You've been told too many times now. It's been said how to avoid this, yet you choose to ignore. Monkeypolice188-Signature-2Monkeypolice188-Signature-4Monkeypolice188-Signature-3 17:55, October 30, 2015 (UTC)

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 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!

Your image don't have a proper name and license. It should be named "FestiveSurprise2015-GTAO-Christmas Notification.png" and have a {{Gtao screenshot}} instead (although there is not option to add a GTAO license, you can manually change it after uploading the image by using the source editor).

Please be sure to follow our Media Policy before uploading any more images. Thank you. Thegtaseeker96 (talk) 15:08, December 25, 2015 (UTC)

Patroller

Hey. So I noticed how hard you worked today here, and of course, ever since you came to GTA Wiki. I think your work and competence is brilliant, - how do you feel about going for Patroller? You'd be great in the role. You have experience and know how things work here :) Consider the offer. Monk Talk 16:41, June 7, 2016 (UTC)

Hey there - whenever you're ready, you can apply for patroller here. Good luck! Monolith Patch Rain - Talk SCS Freedom 17:40, June 7, 2016 (UTC)
I moved the request over the RfA since newer requests go above the older ones - otherwise, all good! Monolith Patch Rain - Talk SCS Freedom 17:54, June 7, 2016 (UTC)

Congratulations!

Congrats! You're now a Patroller! We will need a staff pic, of a GTA Artwork for you on the Staff page. I assumed you were American since your page states you're from Maine, New England. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Your staff color should update soon :) Monk Talk 18:24, June 8, 2016 (UTC)

Which one's that? Can you send me a link? Monk Talk 20:02, June 8, 2016 (UTC)


I offer you my congratulations as well on your promotion to Patroller! I wish you good luck in your new role.

If your friend is able to steal a Dukes without getting kicked out...

...then why does GTA Online kick me out of the Blista Compact like other vehicles stealable only in SP? And no, its obviously not a glitch, mind you. JohnSignature 20:15, June 23, 2016 (UTC)

Pretty much. I tested it on PC and this was the proof I can give you. JohnSignature 17:56, June 27, 2016 (UTC)

Cleanup Op

I first though it was a type of the mission, but that's because I wasn't notified until I saw your advice about the merging.

I'll see if I can fix that before doing the remaining ones. :P --BodyArmor-GTACW-Android SWAT Cam F VehicleWeapon-GTACW-Android Detonator-GTACW-Android Crate-GTACW-Android 23:54, December 18, 2016 (UTC)

Season's Greetings!

Wishing all GTA Wiki Staff a Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays and a Happy and Prosporous New Year!

Import/Export page layout

Hey man. Should probably discuss this with you, given you seem to be up to date on the latest DLCs and stuff. Can you join chat? It'll make it easier :) Monk Talk 14:50, December 26, 2016 (UTC)

Staff specialties

Hi Roach. I've listed the staff specialization on the Staff article. It would be helpful if you could add a few to your staff box. Cheers! - Monk Talk 22:40, December 1, 2017 (UTC)

Doomsday heists

Hey, good work on the finale page, please feel free to take over The Doomsday Heist and do the full sequence. I have no real interest in it. Smurfy: illuminate - communicate - spectate 22:50, December 14, 2017 (UTC)  

Re edit conflicts

Damn, sorry. Do you still have the browser tab open, sometimes hitting the back button will give you the cached version of your edit (depending on your browser)?  Or at least a cached version of the conflict page so you may be able to salvage your edit. For future reference, I don't have an issue with a conflict over-write of a minor edit, so would have been happy for you to claim priority in the edit conflict page (although I think that page has got a little more confusing and difficult to merge conflicting edits).

Removed interwiki pest message

Heads up, I have removed this and blocked that pest from this wiki too. Smurfy: illuminate - communicate - spectate 09:35, July 1, 2018 (UTC)

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Wishing all Staff members a late Merry Christmas and a Happy and Prosperous New Year! My apologies for the late greetings, I took a break from editing during the holiday period.
