Archiving

Hey Sam, so earlier you removed the talk page content stating you was going to archive it, yet it doesn't appear you archived it, only deleted it. Are you aware? :) Monkeypolice188-Signature-2Monkeypolice188-Signature-4Monkeypolice188-Signature-3 23:00, October 27, 2015 (UTC)

Ah, I see three now. I think your page just needed an edit to reveal it. All is good :) Monkeypolice188-Signature-2Monkeypolice188-Signature-4Monkeypolice188-Signature-3 23:10, October 27, 2015 (UTC)
Ah yes, that happened to me several times. Usually I do the same, backspacing it, other times it just magically returns after a few days. Monkeypolice188-Signature-2Monkeypolice188-Signature-4Monkeypolice188-Signature-3 23:21, October 27, 2015 (UTC)

Hi Sam. Can you please block this user? He violated the image policy 3 times (if the image policy advice counts) and ignored the warnings given by Marcus.

Thank you for making it ambiguous as it rightfully should be. I would have put that myself but that would have been to extreme a change for a novice such as myself. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Chuckski4 (talkcontribs) Please remember to sign your talk page messages with ~~~~.

Image Renames

Hey Sam, could you rename all the images found on the Air Checkpoints article, by removing the "craft" from their names? Just keep the rest the same :p Thanks! Monkeypolice188-Signature-2Monkeypolice188-Signature-4Monkeypolice188-Signature-3 20:34, October 30, 2015 (UTC)

GTA: San Andreas question

Hello Sam, I have a quick question for you, if you do not mind: do you know whether the trailer in the Angel Pine Mobile Home Park where CJ drops off the photographic evidence in the mission Badlands in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is the Angel Pine Save Point?

TAlim 1994 - Konan T-A Lim (talk | contributions) 22:27, October 30, 2015 (UTC)


Thank you for answering my question so quickly. I would check myself, but I do not own a copy of GTA: San Andreas myself, as I never really enjoyed it due to the bad language. Anyway, I needed that information because I am editing an article which requires it.

TAlim 1994 - Konan T-A Lim (talk | contributions) 22:34, October 30, 2015 (UTC)


I did actually check videos before contacting you, but none proved definitively to my mind that the trailer was the Save Point, so I decided to contact you for a second opinion on the matter.

TAlim 1994 - Konan T-A Lim (talk | contributions) 22:40, October 30, 2015 (UTC)


Thank you for the advice. The walkthrough by "GTA Series Videos" was actually also the video that I used as reference, and which I used to acquire a screenshot for this new page that I created, due to its convenient placement on the Badlands page. However, like I said, I was still unsure after reviewing the video, hence my question. Well, you know the saying: "two heads are better than one"!

TAlim 1994 - Konan T-A Lim (talk | contributions) 22:55, October 30, 2015 (UTC)


Exactly. Anyway, thank you once again for your help. Have a good day.

Enhaced version category

Hey Sam, I found this category (Category:Exclusive Next Gen Content in GTA V) which lists all content featured only for the enhaced version of GTA V. My intention is to add it to all articles tagged with the {{Next-Gen}} template, specially for those content released with Freemode Events Update, GTA Online: Lowriders and now the Halloween Surprise. I'm not sure if this is the correct purpose of the category though, so I'd like to hear your opinion about it. Thegtaseeker96 (talk) 19:56, October 31, 2015 (UTC)

Ok I'll be adding the category then. Just another question: wouldn't "Exclusive Enhaced Version Content in GTA V" be a more suitable name to avoid any confusions between what is "next-gen", "old-gen" or "current-gen"? Thegtaseeker96 (talk) 20:13, October 31, 2015 (UTC)
(Butting in) Unfortunately categories cannot be renamed, so you'd have to remove the category from all the pages, delete the category, and create a new one. I know, it's a pain :/ Monkeypolice188-Signature-2Monkeypolice188-Signature-4Monkeypolice188-Signature-3 20:37, October 31, 2015 (UTC)
Hey Monk! There's also a similar category (Category:Exclusive Next Gen Vehicles in GTA V) for vehicles only, but I don't know if it was deleted or not (that's a bug probably). Anyways, it would be interesting to list in a category. What do you think? Thegtaseeker96 (talk) 20:47, October 31, 2015 (UTC)
It was deleted, it's just the remaining articles within it have not been removed from the category. I'll remove them now. *Final Countdown - Europe plays* xD Monkeypolice188-Signature-2Monkeypolice188-Signature-4Monkeypolice188-Signature-3 21:05, October 31, 2015 (UTC)

Image naming question

Good day Sam, I have another quick question for you: if I am uploading multiple similar images, should I name the second (third, fourth, etc.) image as "ObjectName2-GameName-DescriptionHere", "ObjectName-GameName-2DescriptionHere" or "ObjectName-GameName-DescriptionHere2"?

TAlim 1994 - Konan T-A Lim (talk | contributions) 18:35, November 1, 2015 (UTC)

Image naming error

Hello again Sam. I have unfortunately made another minor naming error in one of the images that I have uploaded: could you please remove the spacing in the name of this image? Thank you in advance.

Bad image name

Hello again Sam, this image needs renaming. Please do not ask me what it should be renamed to, for I have no idea what the user was trying to show with the image.

TAlim 1994 - Konan T-A Lim (talk | contributions) 00:33, November 2, 2015 (UTC)


Do not worry, I already had Andre rename the image in question. It turns out that they were Coquettes.

I was about to suggest getting rid of that, as the determinant category pretty much categorizes the opposite, more or less leaving the rest as an obvious "living" character. We'd need to remove the category from all the pages before deleting it though...*sigh*. Monkeypolice188-Signature-2Monkeypolice188-Signature-4Monkeypolice188-Signature-3 18:17, November 3, 2015 (UTC)

Media Policy violation

Good day Sam. Much as I do not particularly like issuing disciplinary action on someone whom I consider to be one of my "Friends and/or Helpful Users", "Jiralhanae117" has now violated the Media Policy for the third time, and under normal circumstances he would be issued with a block. I will leave it up to you to decide, but personally I would give him one last chance.

TAlim 1994 - Konan T-A Lim (talk | contributions) 03:24, December 2, 2015 (UTC)


Thank you, I will let him know.

By the way, I have discovered how to make signatures work with the "ImageLicence", "Warning" and "Block" templates: when customizing the signature from the "Preferences" page, ensure that any symbols that can be used as wikitext but that are not intended as wikitext (such as the pipe symbol ("|") between the "talk" and "contributions" links in my signature) have the <nowiki> and </nowiki> tags around them (see my own current signature for an example); this will prevent unintended effects when the signature is used in a template.

TAlim 1994 - Konan T-A Lim (talk | contributions) 20:28, December 2, 2015 (UTC)

Unnecessary template?

Good day Sam, I feel that this template (Template:Blocked) should be considered for deletion, since we already have a more widely used "Block" template. Please tell me what you think, and if you disagree, feel free to discuss it on the Talk page and/or remove the "Prod" template from the page.

TAlim 1994 - Konan T-A Lim (talk | contributions) 02:45, December 4, 2015 (UTC)

Hey Sam, just to let you know, here is a list of all unused templates, if you want something else to do. Thegtaseeker96 (talk) 18:31, December 4, 2015 (UTC)

Leicester

Jeez, this time last year we were talking about how Leicester were struggling at the bottom of the Premier League and now they are right up at the top with the league's top scorer. Unbelievable. LS11sVaultBoy (Talk) 17:00, December 16, 2015 (UTC)

Stop it. Stop it. Just stop! If you beat Man City next week, the only thing stopping Leicester is a trip to the Emirates in February. Title decider lol.

I hear that taxi for Jose may come back for van Gaal. I'm not laughing about Mourinho. (I may have lied) Leo68 (talk) 21:59, December 19, 2015 (UTC)

I think Leicester will get top four, but the likes of City and Arsenal will stop them. Arsenal play City on Monday and is shaping up to be a great game. It's Arsenal's this year, you heard it here first. Champions League could attract big players to Leicester though. Chelsea won't make Europe. I don't see them going down, but they could just scrape through. Leo68 (talk) 22:42, December 19, 2015 (UTC)

I'd love to see Chelsea go down, but I don't see it. They'll fend off the teams that look like they'll go down (Sunderland, Villa, Norwich etc.) but as for Arsenal vs Leicester for the title (never thought I'd say that this season), you're right, way too open, but most people are saying that it's Arsenal's best chance to win it.

Bad image names

Hello Sam, could you please rename the following images to the names suggested in the "Move" templates? I would normally ask Monk, but he seems to be too upset to do it at this time.

Thank you.

TAlim 1994 - Konan T-A Lim (talk | contributions) 17:55, December 21, 2015 (UTC)


Thank you for your help.

TAlim 1994 - Konan T-A Lim (talk | contributions) 18:05, December 21, 2015 (UTC)


I just realized that you did not remove the "Move" templates from the images. Could you please do so, or would you rather I do it myself?

TAlim 1994 - Konan T-A Lim (talk | contributions) 18:11, December 21, 2015 (UTC)


By the way, why did you name the fourth image "GTAV-LSPDMotorOfficer" instead of "LSPDMotorOfficer-GTAV"?

TAlim 1994 - Konan T-A Lim (talk | contributions) 18:15, December 21, 2015 (UTC)


I see. In that case, you might wish to also rename the third, fifth and sixth images, since they were also renamed incorrectly by you. Also, you spelled "sheriff" incorrectly in both the images of LSSD deputies; there is only one "r". Perhaps you should simply copy and paste the suggested names in the "Move" templates that I add in the future, as I rarely, if ever, suggest a bad name. Thank you.

User licensing question

Hello again Sam, and apologies for my lengthy hiatus. I have an issue with licensing that I am hoping that you can help me with. This user has uploaded two images without licenses: one of the flag of Finland, and the other a map with Finland highlighted in red. I am aware that there is a specific license template for images of flags, but I also notice that it cannot be applied directly when uploading an image, and so might easily be missed be users not familiar with templates; as for the map image, it should have been released with a "Public Domain" license. Do you think that I should issue this user with an official reminder, or should I let it slide this time?

TAlim 1994 - Konan T-A Lim (talk | contributions) 15:43, January 19, 2016 (UTC)


I was of the same opinion. Thank you for your advice. As you have suggested, I will let this infringement slide. I have already fixed the licensing errors.

Bad image names

Good day Sam, please rename this image to "VCPA-GTAVC.jpg". Also, you may wish to rename this image, though since it still follows the general Media Policy, it is not essential, but I will leave it to you.

TAlim 1994 - Konan T-A Lim (talk | contributions) 10:27, January 22, 2016 (UTC)


I have a further two (File:Gallery2.jpg) images that have bad names. I have a strong suspicion that the first one is a modification, as CJ is clearly standing outside Ricardo Diaz's mansion/Vercetti Estate from Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and furthermore it was posted by a user who was blocked by you for publishing false information, so I recommend its deletion. As for the second image, I do not know what to name it, so I will let you use your own creativity to come up with a appropriate name.

TAlim 1994 - Konan T-A Lim (talk | contributions) 10:47, January 22, 2016 (UTC)


You are welcome.

TAlim 1994 - Konan T-A Lim (talk | contributions) 16:46, January 22, 2016 (UTC)


By the way, just out of curiosity, were all of "Jbeato50"'s (the User who posted the image of Carl outside the Vercetti Estate) edits related to posting false information on Carl's article, and the resultant edit war with Staff?

TAlim 1994 - Konan T-A Lim (talk | contributions) 17:15, January 22, 2016 (UTC)


Indeed. I must say that it is rather strange that some go to such lengths to prove a point that 99.9999% (or more) of Grand Theft Auto players know to not be canon, including posting a modified image.

TAlim 1994 - Konan T-A Lim (talk | contributions) 17:42, January 22, 2016 (UTC)


Indeed. I hope that "Jbeato50"'s latest block will make him/her learn his/her lesson, but due to his/her bad record, I doubt it. By the way, I have another question, which I will ask under another heading, as it is unrelated to this subject.

Flag image deletions

Hello Sam, could you please delete the following images of the Australian flag:

For the images marked with "leave redirect", please leave a redirect to File:Flag of Australia.png after deleting the image, as they are used on other pages. I have no clue why we have four different images of the Australian flag on the wiki, especially the third one on my list, which is of a horrible quality and is not even spelled correctly. I chose the image with the best original resolution to keep. Thank you in advance for your assistance.

I am glad to hear that the Navbox looks good, as I must have spent six hours working on it in total, due primarily to the repetitive code for the flag images, which I needed to enter and re-enter several times - which still took some time, even though I copied and pasted the majority of the code to save time - and also the fact that I needed to insert the template into 45 pages.

Regarding screenshot license template unprotecting

Hello Sam, could you please temporarily unprotect all the license templates related to Grand Theft Auto screenshots? I have updated the "Screenshot" template, and I wish to apply the template to all license templates to normalize the wording and format of them.

TAlim 1994 - Konan T-A Lim (talk | contributions) 22:51, February 25, 2016 (UTC)


The "Gtav screenshot" template is protected, but I am not sure about any others. I will update this message if there are other templates other than that one which need unprotecting.

I seriously hope your team ends up with the Premiership title. It's their to lose now. It makes a change from the usual suspects and would be nice to see Leicester and Tottenham end up as the top two teams in the league. I think my team has the league wrapped up already. We are on an insane 38 game unbeaten run :) Messi1983 (talk) 14:17, March 17, 2016 (UTC)

You guys deserve it if you win it. I cannot see Arsenal winning it and if Leicester don't then Spurs will. It will be nice to see you in the Champions League next season. You have a good manager and great team chemistry. We never got out of second gear against Arsenal and just went through the motions in both games. I hope we get City next in the CL.

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.

Good day, I am once again applying for the position of Administrator following my former contender's (Ricardo) decision to resign from his post.

West Coast Classics

I continuously edit the year "You Know How We Do It" by Ice Cube to 1994 because that is the year the song was released. Yes, it was RECORDED in 1993 but was RELEASED in 1994 FOR the year 1994.

All of the songs on the playlist go by the years they were released, NOT recorded. DJ Pooh himself even confirmed it himself on the station; the link that directs you to the song also confirmed this statement as well, so rightfully my edit to 1994 is correct and should not be re-edited any further.

You were the last person to edit it back to 1993 and you need to change it back to 1994. —Preceding unsigned comment added by BigJ1992 (talkcontribs) Please remember to sign your talk page messages with ~~~~.

Donald Love

Yo, I was looking up this character Donald Love because I wanted to add something to trivia. While in editing mode, I noticed that it said in the character infobox that Donald Love was 27 in 1986. That would mean he was born in 1959. I added that but you edited it out. That's okay, not all my edits are correct but it said so in the infobox so if what j wrote is wrong, change the infobox.

TAlim 1994 - Konan T-A Lim (talk | contributions) 23:36, June 6, 2016 (UTC)


I see. That is fair enough. By the way, the GTA Wiki Staff World Locations map badly needs updating, as several Staff have been promoted, demoted, or have resigned since the 10th of March 2016 (the date when the map was last updated). I would do it myself, but I do not know what fonts were used to create the map, so it is best if the creators (either Monk or Marcus) did this. Just to confirm, was Jamal officially demoted, or did he resign?
TAlim 1994 - Konan T-A Lim (talk | contributions) 23:53, June 6, 2016 (UTC)


I see. Since it was mutual, I was going to put him down as "resigned" on the "Former staff" section of the Staff page, but it seems that you have already put him down as "demoted". With regards to the map, I had better send Monk a personal message about it, in case he has not noticed the problem.

Good day Sam, I noticed that you removed links that I added to the Snail Trail article, which you regarded as overlinking. Generally, I follow this rule when adding links: one link on the first instance of a keyword per main heading (==Example==). The links that you removed as overlinking followed this rule. Is this a good rule to follow? If not, what rule do you suggest?

TAlim 1994 - Konan T-A Lim 林道安 (talk | contributions) 06:21, July 17, 2016 (UTC)


Your point is noted. I must admit that I am considerably more conservative about links when I add them to Wikipedia articles, having been indirectly reprimanded in a Wikipedia edit summary for making that mistake once (I edit from an IP address on Wikipedia, since I rarely edit there because spelling and grammar there is almost always correct, and I do not currently have any specialist article knowledge), but this is the first time that I have been reprimanded (by you, indirectly as well) for overlinking on the GTA Wiki. I think that I will research Wikipedia's linking policy and follow it here as well, since you obviously do the same.
TAlim 1994 - Konan T-A Lim 林道安 (talk | contributions) 13:09, July 17, 2016 (UTC)


In a very indirect way, I feel that you have very mildly reprimanded me, as your edit summary is quite similar to the one the Wikipedia user who reverted my overlinking left: perhaps he/she did not mean it as a reprimand either, but that is how I interpreted it. In any case, no hard feelings, and thank you for your advice.

More football

I don't know if you watched our two teams friendly the other night...but it certainly showed why Leicester won the Premiership especially with that second half performance. Ahmed Musa...what a signing he will be. Messi1983 (talk) 14:43, August 6, 2016 (UTC)

Hey

Back for a few weeks. Bit of catching up to do lol. Leicester and Arsenal in a few weeks, sounds like Mahrez wants to join us. Would be an interesting reunion, Vardy will get an interesting reception. Sure you guys will have a gloat at us. Musa and Mendy were great additions, but Kante will be a loss. Lineker got it spot on; Kante joining Conte is a bit c***y. Leo68 (talk) 17:31, August 9, 2016 (UTC)

Mahrez looks ready to go. I was watching Arsenal play Chivas and Debuchy was flying into everyone and gave away a penalty. Players seem to shut down or go into to self destruct mode when they're done with their clubs. We've missed out on Draxler & Gotze. Now that Lacazette is injured we'll probably sign Mahrez. We'll give you Walcott, we don't want him! :P Leo68 (talk) 21:33, August 9, 2016 (UTC)

I think he's staying anyway >:( Wenger wants another 'striker' to work with Giroud and Alexis if Mahrez joins (Lacazette is an alternative but he's currently injured). Last year when we wanted Benzema, Theo said he wanted to play up frront. Now that we want Draxler & Mahrez, he wants to go out wide. I really hope he's sold next year, I think Wenger will finally leave next summer. Simeone is a potential replacement. Leo68 (talk) 01:47, August 10, 2016 (UTC)

Opening Weekend

Well Saturday was shit. Think the games only opened up today, but our clash next weekend promises to be huge. We both have points to prove, and if the rumors I'm hearing are true, we might have a new signing by then (Mustafi, don't worry we're not signing Mahrez yet :p). You should hope you can hold onto Mahrez, because if we beat you again he might ask to leave after successive defeats. Leo68 (talk) 17:28, August 14, 2016 (UTC)

I think Mahrez is underpeforming because he wants to leave. He didn't celebrate his goal with the fans and was subduded throughout. Bet you wish Vardy left though, his open goal miss was appalling. Skied from six yards. Musa looked promising, but I don't think Hernandez impressed at CB.
I'm tired of this shit though, lost our third opening day game in four seasons and lost Aaron Ramsey again. That's Ramsey, Jenkinson, Mertesacker, Welbeck & Gabriel injured before the season's really started. Every season is groundhog day for Arsenal. I don't get what AW was doing, Xhaka was benched, Alexis was up front and didn't want to be, Cazorla was dropped for Ramsey (who rushed back and got injured) and Koscielny, Giroud & Ozil didn't even make the bench. One of them could've been the perfect impact sub. Hoperfully we'll have Mustafi for next weekend, he's supposedly signing tomorrow which would be perfect timing. His agent's in London as is Valencia's owner, and he's been left out of their squad.
Now that things are picking up though, West Ham vs Chelsea might be a good game. Leo68 (talk) 19:25, August 14, 2016 (UTC)

Leicester vs Arsenal

It appears Arsenal never wanted Mahrez. Wenger & Ranieri denied it but now he's extended so that media speculation can vanish now. I expect Leicester fans like yourself will have taunts about Vardy this weekend, unless he skies his shots again. I'm going for a draw because the stats seem to swing things.

  • No defending champion has lost their two opening games.
  • Arsenal haven't lost their opening two games since 1992.
  • Leicester haven't beaten Arsenal since 1995.

As for scorers. Maybe 2-2? Sanchez, & Walcott for Arsenal, most likely one of Leicester's would be scored by Vardy.

  • Sanchez has scored four goals in two at the KP.
  • Walcott has three goals in his last three games against Leicester.
  • Vardy scored three goals in two games against Arsenal last season.

And knowing our luck, Vardy will rub the snub in our faces with a goal. Or we'll show him we're miles better. Time will tell but as per last time, we'll be civil about it :p Leo68 (talk) 07:21, August 19, 2016 (UTC)

Called it. Very lively but neither side was clincal enough in front of goal, particularly Vardy which was surprising. You'd have won if Musa started. Alexis shouldn't have been up front for us. 0-0 makes everyone happy. Both still need that win though. Leo68 (talk) 18:48, August 20, 2016 (UTC)
I'm actually pissed. Wenger is still not prepared for a top four challenge, let alone a title charge. If we were to win the title we'd need Mustafi & Ricardo Rodriguez for the back four, we're apparently back in for Draxler now that Wolfsburg have signed someone new. Alexandre Lacazette would be the final piece. If we sign two of these four we'll finish top four. In order to win the title with just Mustafi, we'd need someone on the level of Aubameyang or Griezmann. That won't happen though. Wenger's got to go this year. I've been Wenger since he won the '14 FA Cup, but a lack of signings and silverware tells me he's past it. Leo68 (talk) 19:40, August 21, 2016 (UTC)

UCL Draw

You guys got unbelievably lucky there. Leicester & Spurs have the easiest groups. Arsenal will finish second to PSG and go out in the round of 16. Spare a thought for Celtic, for UCL since 13-14 and they get Barca & Man City. Leo68 (talk) 17:29, August 25, 2016 (UTC)

I'm actually looking forward to Leicester in the UCL. It makes a change because what I see with Arsenal is a poor result against a crap team, a famous win over a big European team, a rout in the reverse, skin of our teeth qualification and a round of 16 exit. Maybe Leicester can add excitement to the neutral perspective. Same goes for group C; Celtic have actually beaten Barca before, Guardiola's going back to Barca with Shitty, and it's Yaya vs Kolo Toure again. If I'm not mistaken, Taulant Xhaka plays for Basel which means he'll face Granit at club level (they both played each other in the Euros). I know there'll be an Elneny homecoming because we signed him from Basel. As for this weekend, I would be incredibly shocked if Leicester & Arsenal don't get their first wins against Swansea & Watford. Leo68 (talk) 18:59, August 25, 2016 (UTC)

Deadline Day

Slimani! What an excellent signing for Leicester. I'm impressed with it, shame they couldn't bring in Silva as well. You guys should've brought in a big name CM to replace Kante because they got 32mil for him. To be honest though, I'm stunned that Arsenal signed two players on the same day. Mustafi could make Arsenal's back four the best in the league. Koscielny's one of Europe's best CBs, Monreal is consistently consistent and Bellerin is the best young right back in the world, the best in the league and one of the best RBs in the world. Leo68 (talk) 06:25, September 5, 2016 (UTC)

Bellerin's got bags of potential but seems to have been distracted by rumors linking him to Barca and City. I can't think of a better young right-back worldwide, nor can I think of a better RB in the PL. Zabaleta and Sagna are past it, Darmian's shit, Clyne's form dips then flies and Ivanovic is pathetic. Bellerin just needs to settle a bit, which should be easier now that the windows ended. He could go on to greatness, I'd only put the likes of Dani Alves, Lahm & Danilo ahead of him. I just hope we can finally beat Southampton now that Koeman's gone, glad the yawn-tastic international break is over. Leo68 (talk) 07:59, September 7, 2016 (UTC)

I'm still, however, with my compromise of standardizing performance sections, because I don't like leaving what is not finished.
Once all vehicles are done, I'll consider my option to deactivate my account. Once again, thanks. --BodyArmor-GTACW-Android SWAT Cam F VehicleWeapon-GTACW-Android Detonator-GTACW-Android Crate-GTACW-Android 13:54, September 19, 2016 (UTC)

Are you able to go on chat? Have to ask you something privately. Leo68 (talk) 23:00, October 2, 2016 (UTC)

Would you like Discussions enabled on the GTA Wiki?

Hey SJWalker,

I'm contacting you and the other admins to see if you are aware of Discussions, Fandom's new social feature? It adds a conversation platform to a wiki where users can talk about anything and everything related to the wiki's topic. What makes it different from the current forums you can enable through Special:WikiFeatures is that it works equally well on mobile and desktop, and that it can be a central part of your community's app.

Fandom plans to eventually retire the current forums and migrate all of their content into Discussions, making Discussions the primary conversation space on wikis. However, since you're using wiki-style forums on the GTA Wiki instead of Fandom's forum feature, Discussions would be a new addition for your community, not a replacement.

Do you think this is something you'd like to try? It would give your app users and mobile visitors a way to get involved in the community, talk and contribute, which they haven't been able to do before. Some of them may even turn from read-only visitors to active editors. Desktop users would have a way to discuss GTA from anywhere they go - they could take it with them on their phones. And, since you're not using the forums, you wouldn't have to worry about any current features you love disappearing, or any content on the actual wiki changing.

If you're still unsure about this, you can also check out the Discussions FAQ. You'll find many answers to questions there that other communities have asked us already. Feel free to check out how Discussions is working out for other communities, for example Fallout, Brave Frontier, or Destiny.

All you need to do if you'd like to have Discussions enabled is to let me know, and I'll do that for you. I'm here if you have questions, too! Mira Laime @fandom  (help forum | blog) 21:26, October 3, 2016 (UTC)

The Open Road trivia

Hi, I noticed my input into the The Open Road was undone. While I respect the decision, I just would like to understand why you believe it's just a "general saying". Since to me, frankly it seems too coincidental that The Open Road, which is run on an anonymity network, would be abbreviated as "TOR". Maybe I am looking too much into it, but still... Hua Xiong (talk) 07:20, October 15, 2016 (UTC)

I actually agree with you with regards to the abbreviation of "The Open Road" being "TOR": it seems too much of a coincidence to me that Rockstar decided to call it "The Open Road", rather than simply "Open Road" or something similar. I have decided to re-add your trivia. Sam, please message me if you disagree with my decision.

Regarding a billboard in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City

Good day Sam, I have a quick question to ask you, if you are able to answer it: in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City there are billboards in Little Haiti advertising the area with the slogan "LIFE'S A BEACH", vandalized to read "LIFE'S A BITCH", and I was wondering whether these exact same billboards (with the graffiti) are in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories?

TAlim 1994 - Konan T-A Lim 林道安 (talk | contributions) 06:02, October 23, 2016 (UTC)


Quite a coincidence indeed. So you are saying that the actual billboard (disregarding the graffiti) is nonexistent in GTA: Vice City Stories?
TAlim 1994 - Konan T-A Lim 林道安 (talk | contributions) 10:05, October 23, 2016 (UTC)


I see. In that case, no changes need to be made to the trivia of the Little Haiti and Life's a Beach articles. Thank you for your help Sam, I appreciate it.
UPDATE: As it turned out, I did actually need to edit the Little Haiti article, as the trivia failed to mention that the billboards only appear in GTA: Vice City.

Could be worse, could be a United fan. I'll hope we thrash Spurs, the atmosphere will be great. As your wonderful fans pointed out, they're so shit they were third in a two horse race. They won't hear the end of it on Sunday. 4am game over here though :/ Leo68 (talk) 23:24, November 3, 2016 (UTC)

Guess I get to go back to sleep afterwards. Saw a few Arsenal fans complaining online because they had to travel to Sunderland for a 12:30 kick off. Enjoying Mourinho's implosion, couldn't happen to a nicer manager. As for Sissoko, you could say Newcastle have humiliated Spurs twice since May. Think he's suspended this week anyway. If it concerns you, no team has been relegated and won the Champions League in the same season. That would be impressive if Leicester pulled that off. Lineker would probably do the UCL highlights butt naked. Maybe it'd be best if they didn't lol. Leo68 (talk) 01:37, November 4, 2016 (UTC)

Regarding the GTA London page

Good day Sam, I have a question regarding what should be done about the GTA London disambiguation page: currently the page title does not conform with the general naming convention of the wiki, and I am not sure whether the page should be renamed to "Grand Theft Auto: London" or left as it is. What is your view?

TAlim 1994 - Konan T-A Lim 林道安 (talk | contributions) 11:42, November 17, 2016 (UTC)

My thoughts exactly. I have renamed the page, deleting the redirect that formerly occupied the "Grand Theft Auto: London" title, and turned the "GTA London" page into a redirect. I also created a new redirect page called "GTA: London". Thank you for your advice.

Regarding duplicate disambiguation pages

Good day Sam. In the future, instead of outright deleting duplicate disambiguation pages (such as "Tommy" or "Tom"), could you please leave a redirect behind, as some people may still search for the names by those variants. The exception to this would of course be if the page has an exceedingly unlikely name (for example "Hazza" (an Australian nickname for "Harold" or "Harry")), unless an in-game reference, i.e., credits, use by characters, etc., is made to that particular name. Thank you.

Good day Sam, I require your assistance with something: please take a look at the third trivia note of the I Fought the Law... article and verify the authenticity of the information in the said note. The note was very badly worded in terms of grammar, and while I have fixed the grammar, I have no idea as to whether the actual information is correct, as I have never played the Story Mode of Grand Theft Auto V.

All right, never mind then, and thank you anyway. By the way, apologies for ranting, but I wish to vent some of my frustration here: I have just (as of the time of this message) checked, and my police uniform on Grand Theft Auto Online has been deleted again! You probably would not fully understand my frustration, since you do not play GTA Online and do not have the same attachment to the police uniform that I have, but I am seriously ticked off at losing the uniform again, as I greatly like wearing that uniform and pretending to be a police officer in missions, and this is the fifth time that I have lost it in the past six months. Now I have to try and find another glitch to get the uniform back. Ayah, why cannot Rockstar just make the blooming thing purchasable? I generally do not like doing glitches, and I would happily pay a million in-game dollars or more to purchase and keep it. I am considering taking an indefinite break from playing GTA Online, though I will continue to perform my duties on this wiki. I must admit that one of the most annoying things about this sorry matter is that some players (like Monk) still have the uniform after doing a glitch to get it over a year ago, while unlucky Konan (and many others) loses it! Once again, apologies for my rant, but I wanted to say this to someone who would have at least some understanding of my irritation.

About the Deletion of Unnamed Grove Street Families Member Page

Since this character is seen during The Introduction and was involved in attempting to assasinate Sean "Sweet" Johnson, it means he already is a character. And you can clearly see him in later missions, just with Grove Street Families clothes. Pofke2017 (talk) 14:54, July 31, 2017 (UTC)

RE: Unnamed Grove Street Families Member

However, I believe that he is the same person who attempted to assasinate Sean "Sweet" Johnson by driving the green Sabre and let me explain why:

Bogman, who shares resemblance to one of the gang members of Ballas during The Introduction, has ties to Loco Syndicate as he appears during Ice Cold Killa mission.

Dope, who also shares resemblance to one of them, stole the blender of Beverly Johnson and tried to sell it during Home Coming. During Beat Down on B Dup, he is seen sitting in the staircase near the former Mark "B Dup" Wayne's Apartment. He even knew that he did not live there anymore as he told "Yo, Dup ain't here. Moved out a while back." At first, he did not want to tell where B Dup lived and instead said "Yo, I got something, a little something, just what you need..." while Grove Street Families is strictly against both selling and consuming of crack. After he was forced to tell where B Dup was, he knew that he lived in Glen Park as he told that. He also even knew about Big Bear and his crack addiction - "his boy always there - give a cat what he needs".

These facts prove that both Bogman and Dope are the same gang members of Ballas who appear during The Introduction.

Now what makes you think that this character, unlike those two, is not the same? Even for some reason, FAM3 model does not appear in any cutscenes, unlike FAM1 and FAM2. The thing is that this character for some reason, unlike Bogman and Dope, cut all ties to Ballas as he appears from House Party to Grove 4 Life.

Mollevin

Hi SJWalker,

Now that I think, you're possibly right that Devin Weston sent Merryweather Security to take out Michael De Santa's family due him made Weston look like a fool. But if you call DEvin following Meltdown, when he mocks Michael for having lost the opportunity to see his produced Meltdown film, he answers that Molly was killed following his orders, so it may suggest that Devin almost cared about Molly.

Wait for your answer! :)

GTA IV mission pages cleanup

Hi, I recently started playing GTA IV and making some edits here, and I noticed a few mission pages that don't have a walkthrough section. It seems that you removed it when you did a cleanup of the page, and it's something you've been doing for several years, but I haven't been able to find any pattern to that. So do you have plans to do this sort of cleanup on a large number of mission pages, or are you doing it only on certain ones? Qstlijku (talk) 22:35, January 29, 2018 (UTC)

Hello! I'd like to know why you removed my trivia from Big Smoke page.

I don't know why that happened to me then. It was during the very first mission 'Big Smoke' in the cutscene where Carl and he were about to get in the car: I entered the "explode all cars" code and failed the mission, then Smoke didn't disappear and started to walk like a normal pedestrian so I scared him away with a gun and he started to run away with the same animation as that of a woman.

Anyway, I watched this video on Youtube and it shows that Hemlock Tattoo is accessible on PlayStation 2 version but it doesn't offer unique tattoo selection, I mean, on PS2 version Hemlock Tattoo has the same tattoos as in Los Santos, resulting in the players having no access to this parlor's unique selection of tattoos.Kintobor (talk) 19:40, June 2, 2018 (UTC)Kintobor

Rhino Hunt Page Error (Obviously)

I never played Rhino Hunt but took few looks at the page, then I sense something is wrong but yet I'm unsure how to correct it, as I do not play the adversary mode.

First of all, the hunters are referred to as "Runners", despite their objective is to destroy the rhinos.

Second, the hunters are able to use aricaft? Aren't those supposed to be land vehicles?

Hope you see the error and recitfy it possible!SUPER4geditTANK (talk) 11:22, July 5, 2018 (UTC)

Belongs on article talk page. But the vehicles are clearly present on the map (see the Social Club maps). Smurfy: illuminate - communicate - spectate 12:12, July 5, 2018 (UTC)

Bureaucrat

So, what do you think? Think you'd be up for it? It's either you or Smurf, both as senior staff members, more so in your case as of longer in position. It'd be a great move if you're up for it. Monk (Bureaucrat Bureaucrat) Talk 18:26, July 13, 2018 (UTC)

Well, if you think you're ready, go for it, seems Sean isn't interested at the moment. Good luck! Monk (Bureaucrat Bureaucrat) Talk 09:38, July 18, 2018 (UTC)

Promotion

Congrats, and welcome to the crew! :) Monk (Bureaucrat Bureaucrat) Talk 16:20, July 20, 2018 (UTC)

Congrats on the promotion, Sam. Didn't realize you made the request on the RfP page, that's why I didn't vote, xD. – Ronalddmjunior (talk | contribs) 17:39, July 20, 2018 (UTC)

Congratulations. You'd deserve it. GTAFan86 (talk) 18:18, July 20, 2018 (UTC)

No problem, mate. Cheers :) GTAFan86 (talk) 18:36, July 20, 2018 (UTC)

Question

Is this username based off your real name or a pseudonym?The Devil's Advocate WP (talk) 00:49, July 25, 2018 (UTC)

What is there for me to do?

Hi Sam, how comes every time I correct spellings, punctuation and generally just adding better words, they get reverted and I then get a warning?



Hope to hear from you soon.

Also congratulations on becoming a bureaucrat.

Holland Play canon choice

Kitehang (talk) 20:37, October 13, 2018 (UTC) I'm not trying to argue with you or cause trouble, but if you kill Playboy, not only do you get his penthouse, but if you do that, accept Dwayne as a friend by positvely respond to his email, you can do friend ship activities with Dwayne and if your friendship with him increases enough, you can call him for back up. Doesn't that count as appearing after the holland play mission in the storyline? Those reasons are also why I think killing X is canon. Kitehang (talk) 20:37, October 13, 2018 (UTC)

Artwork of Mr. Raspberry Jam on Trevor's Bodhi

Hello, Sam, it has been a while! I have a favour to ask of you: according to the article for Mr. Raspberry Jam (Floyd Hebert's toy teddy bear), there is an artwork featuring the toy attached to the front of Trevor Philips' Bodhi, but the picture does not appear to exist on the wiki, despite a link being in the article's gallery. Could you please see if you can find the artwork (if it exists) and upload it to the Mr. Raspberry Jam article?

TAlim 1994 - Konan T-A Lim 林道安 (talk | contributions) 20:29, November 28, 2018 (UTC)

I renamed it to Bodhi-GTAV-Artwork.jpeg and replaced the redirect with a delete template, since I could not suppress the redirect myself. Apologies for any trouble. NoirlimeTalk | Contribs
To Noirlime4L: Not a problem, but in the future please remember to update any pages that link to an image if you remove the redirect. Use Special:Whatlinkshere to locate any pages which link to a particular image. Additionally, I would suggest that you contact an Administrator or Bureaucrat on their Talk page if you require a redirect deleted for non-controversial maintenance reasons—preferably one who is currently active, i.e. has edited in the past 30 minutes—rather than flagging it for deletion, as it will likely be removed quicker that way.

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.

Request for Promotion

Good day, I have made a Request for Promotion to the position of Bureaucrat. Please vote and/or comment when you are available. This message was sent to all Staff members.

Re: Promotion

Apologies for the late reply, I was not active for the past few days, partly due to the Australia Day (26 January) period, during which I decided to take a short break. Thank you for the well-wishes; I hope to fulfil the role of Bureaucrat to the best of my ability.

Re: Semi-Activity

Thank you for your condolences. My mother died very suddenly due to an infection, though she had been ill for some time prior with rectal cancer. She told very few people that she even had cancer, and requested that I not disclose the nature of her disease to all but a select few on a need-to-know basis (hence why I did not mention her illness sooner), and she kept the severity of her condition a secret from almost everyone, including her husband (my father) and myself – most likely to spare us the sadness – and only told very few close friends. At the time that she died, her cancer was stage IV, though my father and I thought that it was stage II and therefore not as serious. Though her death was sudden and unexpected, I am in a way glad that she died the way she did, as I have always personally felt that, if one were to die, it would be preferable for it to be unexpectedly, rather than having to spend one's last days with the knowledge that they are going to die. I will continue to do my duties here on the wiki, but it may be sporadic until further notice. Once again, my thanks for your condolences.

RFP page

Hi Sam, there's an open RfP from Cam that requires some Bureaucratic input on his eligibility to apply for an Administrator role. Would appreciate your input. Smurfy: illuminate - communicate - spectate 08:55, March 13, 2019 (UTC)

While you're at it, can you remove 558050's rollback rights? This should have done in the first place (not just the admin rights), but was overlooked since the inactivity section on the staff wasn't directly updated after the CNB decision (we recently discussed this in the staff talk page).

Testing

Hello, Sam, could you please do me a favour and re-promote me to Bureaucrat when you read this message? I am going to demote myself to a standard user to test something. Thank you in advance.

TAlim 1994 - Konan T-A Lim 林道安 (talk | contributions) 21:11, March 13, 2019 (UTC)


All right, I am done. In case you were wondering, I was testing whether standard users could rename images without leaving a redirect. Actually, could you promote me to Patroller instead of Bureaucrat first? I wish to test whether they can rename without leaving redirects.

Tiebreak

Hi Sam. Unfortunately, the reason we insist on having 3 Bureaucrats has arisen.

Can you please review the block history of this user. As per the message from Monk (posted as a result of a discussion he and I had privately) to Konan, and his reply, we currently have a disagreement on whether the rescinding of the block is justified given the severity of the past offending vs the contrition of the user concerned. The initial message has links to the Community Central messages which were posted there while the user was blocked and unable to post them here in 2016 - so very much a part of THIS wiki's administration history, including his subsequent removal of the entire message thread from public view. The repeat offending in January 2018 is obviously available to you in his contribution history. Other staff have had some input into the discussion in the Discord #staff channel if you would like to jump on there and have a wee read too. Thanks.

The RE-7B real life counterpart on the Annis page is put together like this (Mazda 7878Nissan R390 GT1). Since your one of the Bureaucrats, i cant fix the page so please fix the RE-7B on the Annia page.

Hey why did you reedit my edit on Huang Lee because at the time he was born Hong Kong was under British Rule until 1997 so I wasn't vandalizing that page and did you take down the British Hong Kong page that I had. —Preceding unsigned comment added by TheCrow560 (talkcontribs) Please remember to sign your talk page messages with ~~~~.

Bull Shark Testosterone

Hello there, thank you for welcoming me to this Wikia. 

I just a have a question and that would be: Why can't I add an image to the Bull Shark Testosterone image gallery? It somehow won't react when I upload a picture with a caption and click on "finish". Could you please help me? TheSnitchfather (talk) 15:47, July 13, 2019 (UTC)

Wiki Verification

Hello! This article was recently published about official wiki partnerships. We've been talking about a potential verification of this Wiki over on Discord, and I've come to you for help, as you're currently the only active bureaucrat. Could you take a look and maybe even contact Fandom for this, please? Matrexpingvin (talk) 17:35, July 18, 2019 (UTC)

im wondering

Ok, so you reverted my Amanda De Santa edit. The third way has been confirmed canon in one of the casino missions in gta online, so thats why i removed that part in her infobox, just wondering why you removed it is all.

Occupation section

Hey dude, I think you should change your occupation to Bureaucrat now because you aren't an admin anymore. Just saying GTAFan86 (talk) 09:38, August 18, 2019 (UTC)

Hi! I was just looking for the edits about Benefactor Panto and Schafter V12 has been changed 2 times in a row. I really don't know what is actually correct, please Admin leave the most correct in that. Sorry my English...
