==Welcome==
 
Just to say welcome to GTA Wiki and thank you for your contributions. If you have any questions, feel free to ask [[User:A-Dust|myself]] or our other staff members: [[User:Gboyers|Gboyers]], [[User:GuildKnight|GuildKnight]], [[User:Biggest gta fan ever|Biggest gta fan ever]], [[User:Hardrock182|Hardrock 182]], [[User:MattyDienhoff|MattyDienhoff]] and [[User:GTA4PC|GTA4PC]]. Happy editing! [[User:A-Dust|A-Dust]] 23:53, 1 February 2009 (UTC)
 
 
== Wikipedia Links ==
 
 
Hi, thanks for the work on [[A History of Liberty City]]. Just a little tip, Wikipedia links are great for saying that [[Liberty City]] is based on [[wp:New York City|New York City]], because it is obvious that it is a direct link to NYC. However, linking to a Wikipedia page about a real world person, when the name given in the article is an in-game person, I don't know if I agree with that. If you were to create new articles for those characters, link to them, and IN THE ARTICLE say [[Lazlow]] is based on [[wp:Lazlow Jones|Lazlow Jones]], then I think that would be better as opposed to [[wp:Lazlow Jones|lazlow]] is ... (directly to the real world person), though other staff may disagree. Thanks!

== Moving Pages ==
 
 
You can't just cut & paste the content of a page to a new page, and then redirect, like you did to [[Royale Casino]] (now [[Royal Casino]]). I reverted your edits and moved the page properly. In future, you can either ask a member of [[Staff]], or add {{Template|move}} to the page so that a staff member sees it. The reason that you can't do it your way is because it doesn't copy the history, so it looks like you created the page yourself. Thanks!

== Vehicles ==
 
 
Hi. Just to let you know, I have been eying most of your screenshots for vehicles in GTA IV. It looks like there is still room for improvement, so there is a possibility they will be replaced one way or the other. Hope you don't mind. :) - [[User:ZS|ZS]] 06:39, 21 February 2009 (UTC)
 
 
:Go ahead. Anything with higher quality can replace my images.--[[User:Spaceeinstein|spaceeinstein]] 07:05, 21 February 2009 (UTC)
 
 
::Replacing images with new ones is just like any other cleanup. The same rule still applies that something is better than nothing. Your images are better than not having pictures of those cars at all, and that will continue until someone finds a better one.

== Nomination for Promotion ==
 
 
Spaceeinstein , you have been nominated for promotion to Moderator. Please see [[GTA Wiki:Promotion/Spaceeinstein]] for the nomination, and details of how to proceed. [[w:c:gta:User:Gboyers|Gboyers]] <sup>[[:w:c:gta:User_talk:Gboyers|talk]]</sup> 15:13, 8 March 2009 (UTC)

:Congratulations, you have been [[GTA Wiki:Promotion/Spaceeinstein |promoted]] to the position of [[Moderator]] on GTA Wiki. Your responsibilities are to ensure that the wiki runs smoothly, helping users that have problems, fixing urgent problems on the wiki, patrolling edits, being a first point of contact for questions, and spotting any problems with [[Policy]]. You now have the ability to move pages, protect talk pages, rollback edits, use the patrol system, and auto-patrol your edits. If you have any notices that affect or require multiple staff, please post these on the [[SN|Staff Noticeboard]]. Please also familiarise yourself with the staff half of the [[Tasks]] list, and read up on any [[Policy]] that you are unfamilair with. Congratulations, and I look forward to working with you. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to let me know. [[w:c:gta:User:Gboyers|Gboyers]] <sup>[[:w:c:gta:User_talk:Gboyers|talk]]</sup> 15:42, 11 March 2009 (UTC)

== French Mob ==
 
 
Hi there spaceeinstein.I made this [[French Mob|page]] a few months back,but by accident instead of calling '''The French SWAT''' as it should be called I called it '''The French Mob''' and I was wondering if you could move it.-[[User:BloodyGTA]]
 
 
:Never mind A-Dust already fixed it.-[[User:BloodyGTA]]
 
 
==Uzi==
 
Hey, I saw your edits on the articles about Micro Uzi, Mac-10 and Micro-SMG. I agree it's confusing. But let's clear it up in case you're still confused. The Micro Uzi is the Uzi held with one hand and featured in GTA3, San Andreas and GTA IV - you already know that, probably. Micro SMG is the full sized Uzi known as Uzi 9mm in Vice City and Micro SMG in the stories games. Mac-10 is another gun and a different one. It has been featured in VC, LCS and VCS, the third rendition had a silencer stock but the sound was just like a regular gun - loud. Hope that cleared up the situation. --''[[User talk:GTA4PC|GTA 4 PC]]'' 00:34, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
 
 
:Thanks for the info. I think I got it. It's the naming that threw me off. SA and GTA IV refers the Micro Uzi as Micro SMG. I read the Micro SMG article more carefully and added more info on that article to clarify. I hope it's right.--[[User:Spaceeinstein|spaceeinstein]] 02:07, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
 
 
== Disambig ==
 
 
Usually when you move a page there is nothing else that needs to be done, except for removing {{template|move}} tags, because redirects are automatically updated and because a redirect is created at the old name, links still lead to the right page. However, when you move a page to create a disambig, like you moved [[Smackdown]] to [[Smackdown (GTA IV)]], you should check the [[Special:WhatLinksHere/Smackdown|What Links Here]] page to update all the links so that users are sent straight to the correct page and not to the disambig. I have done this for the Smackdown page. Thanks! '''[[User:Biggest gta fan ever|Biggest GTA Fan Ever]]<sup>''[[User talk:Biggest gta fan ever|Talk]]''</sup>''' 05:49, 25 March 2009 (UTC)
 
 
== Deletion ==
 
 
Hi there. Could I just recommend that you use {{template|prod}} to propose pages for deletion (often with some discussion), rather than {{template|delete}}, which is only used in urgent & obvious cases of vandalism or spam. This helps us keep track of everything properly, and also gives people the chance to discuss things before a staff member (or vigilante) comes along and acts. Good work on cleaning stuff up though, so keep it up. [[w:c:gta:User:Gboyers|Gboyers]] <sup>[[:w:c:gta:User_talk:Gboyers|talk]]</sup> 10:23, 22 April 2009 (UTC)
 
 
== Cleanup Project ==
 
 
Hi Spaceeinstein . As part of our first [[Project:Cleanup Projects|Cleanup Project]], I have assigned some tasks to [[staff]] members. This way, all the tasks get done, not just the obvious ones. Could you have a go at [[Special:LonelyPages]] (pages with no links '''to''' them) and try and fix as many as possible? This may consist of adding relevant links to other pages, or marking duplicate/unnecessary pages for deletion. Doing as many as you feel you can would be great. Just ask if you have any questions, or read the [[Project:Cleanup Projects|project page]]. Also, could you click on [[Special:ToggleUserPage|this link]] twice to get rid of your red username? Thanks - [[w:c:gta:User:Gboyers|Gboyers]] <sup>[[:w:c:gta:User_talk:Gboyers|talk]]</sup> 20:34, 25 April 2009 (UTC)

::You mean in the part that says the last user to edit that forum? It's the same with the "Latest Activity" part of the sidebar, your name appears normal. As for keeping the red link, when someone sees that in recent changes, they might think you're a brand new user, which is far from staff (and the staff signature is designed so users can easily find you).

:Just wondering, why did that happen? I thought we couldn't send messages either because of the database or I'd have told you
 
Wikia staff have said there is no reason why it should have been locked, so they're looking into it. Seems that board messages still worked for some reason. [[User:Gboyers|Gboyers]] <sup>[[User_talk:Gboyers|talk]]</sup> 22:37, 21 May 2009 (UTC)

:Yes, you can create an article for skate parks. As with any articles, just put enough information on it so that it's not empty and is useful for people to read.--'''[[User:Spaceeinstein|Spaceeinstein]]''' 22:22, 4 June 2009 (UTC)

:Of course you can.--'''[[User:Spaceeinstein|Spaceeinstein]]''' 00:18, 18 June 2009 (UTC)
 
 
::I think he was asking whether it was possible, and how to do that. I think to take screens of a consolegame you would need a video capture card - taking a photo with a camera would not be of an acceptable quality. However, I remember hearing that there is some sort of screen-grabbing tool somewhere, but I don't have a PS3 to check. [http://www.bing.com/search?q=ps3+take.screenshots Bing it]. [[User:Gboyers|Gboyers]] <sup>[[User_talk:Gboyers|talk]]</sup> 04:12, 18 June 2009 (UTC)
 
 
:::A firmware update a while ago included support for screenshots, but it's not a system function, the feature needs to be supported by the game. As far as I know, there are no games ''yet'' to support the function (and GTA IV ''definently'' doesn't), but a future patch for the game could add the feature.

== Walkthroughs ==
 
 
Hey, I see you've been working on walkthrough subpages, but could I ask for a couple of changes? When the walkthrough is short (one or two paragraphs), then it should be transcluded onto the page (using <code><nowiki>{{/walkthrough}}</nowiki></code>). The subpage should be titled in lower case (as most templates should be). Because it is going to be transcluded, the [[:Category:Walkthroughs]] should be inside a noinclude (so that category doesn't get transcluded into the mission page). Is that ok? [[User:Gboyers|Gboyers]] <sup>[[User_talk:Gboyers|talk]]</sup> 12:15, 23 June 2009 (UTC)
 
 
:Alright. But it doesn't really make sense. For a walkthrough, you have to talk to the reader but I thought articles should not be like that, only talking in third person. If it's transcluded, why make a subpage for it?--'''[[User:Spaceeinstein|Spaceeinstein]]''' 19:30, 23 June 2009 (UTC)
 
 
That's the case for ''[[Tunnel_of_Death/Walkthrough|long]]'' walkthroughs (which they should all be) - moving all the help to a separate page so that it doesn't clutter the article. However most of our walkthroughs are very short, and it's pointless making the reader go to a separate page for it. I understand the difference in tone when writing a walkthrough, but so long as it is clearly a walkthrough section then it's not a problem. Creating a subpage when the walkthrough is short makes it easy to fill up with help (plus images and video), then we can just change the transclusion to a link when its too big for the page. For example, transcripts (eg [[Rigged_to_Blow_(GTA_IV)|here]]) should also be on a separate page, since they take up a lot of space and make the article harder to read - but if it's really short, then you can transclude it. Does that make sense? [[User:Gboyers|Gboyers]] <sup>[[User_talk:Gboyers|talk]]</sup> 22:25, 23 June 2009 (UTC)
 
 
:I've been messing around and have the idea of making it a collapsible table like [[Yu_Jian|this]] so it can be consistent for all mission pages without having to make subpages for some but not others. Is this a good idea?--'''[[User:Spaceeinstein|Spaceeinstein]]''' 20:42, 24 June 2009 (UTC)
 
 
That's pretty cool - nice work. However, there is still one flaw. It will still ''load'' all the information on the page, and just hide/show it at will. This means the pages will take a while to load, and if you don't have javascript (eg on a mobile) you'll see the massive walkthrough every time. This is as much of a problem as taking up a lot of vertical space. If there was a way to do this with ajax (dynamic javascript) so that it only ''loaded'' the walkthrough when you click "show", then that would be ideal. Maybe just make a {{template|walkthrough}} that links to /walkthrough? I know it's not as elegant a solution, but hopefully it should solve all the problems.

== Mission Layout ==
 
 
Sure, we could use that. I haven't really seen a permanent layout for every single mission page, so it'll most probably work.

But hey, it's just a personal opinion, and I'll leave the decision-making and layout-making to you. Whatever is implemented, I'll follow the layout for every mission page I edit in.

== Memory Lanes images ==
 
 
Hi. I have this idea of using a single panoramic shot to illustrate the interior of a [[Memory Lanes]] bowling alley instead of fragmented shots (Given there are two places to illustrate: The bowling space, and the Burger Shot mini outlet). I have [http://img269.imageshack.us/img269/8783/memorylanespano.jpg a stitched shot of the place] composed of 10 images, and the original is more than 8,000 pixels wide (I'm considering bringing down the size to 50-60%). There might be issues with size, but we should be able to work it out. I have similar plans for the university grounds in [[Varsity Heights]] and [[Star Junction]]. What says you? - [[User:ZS|ZS]] 12:41, November 6, 2009 (UTC)
 
 
:It's cool showing an entire area in one image. I'm going along with this idea. I would like the image be kept in or close to its original size. Did the 8,000-pixel-wide image break 10 MB? If you are shrinking it, single shots of important structures should go along with the panorama.--'''[[User:Spaceeinstein|Spaceeinstein]]''' 21:56, November 6, 2009 (UTC)
 
 
::The largest shots are 4 MB large, and these are saved in the highest jpg quality possible (the program I used only processes jpg images). If filesize is not a problem, I'll use larger pano shots. Thanks for your input. - [[User:ZS|ZS]] 17:28, November 7, 2009 (UTC)
 
 
== Watchlist Question ==
 
What do the green or red numbers after the edits made on a watched page mean? If you don't know what I'm talking about, here's a visual aid:
 
 
14:58 Talk:Mallorie Bardas‎ (diff; hist) . . (+517) . . Ghost Leader (Talk | contribs) (→Cheating: )
 
23:53 Carmen Ortiz‎ (diff; hist) . . (-1) . . A-Dust (Talk | contribs)
 
 
What do the +517 and -1 mean? [[User:Ghost Leader|Ghost Leader]] 15:07, December 4, 2009 (UTC)
 
 
:I don't use watchlist but the +517 and -1 means the number of bytes that was added or deleted on the page. It's almost completely useless unless it's a huge negative number that would suggest vandalism. You can disable pages from automatically adding to your watchlist in your Preferences.--'''[[User:Spaceeinstein|Spaceeinstein]]''' 15:57, December 4, 2009 (UTC)
 
 
== Unique Pedestrians ==
 
I was browsing and happened upon some small articles (like Paranoid Cowboy and DNMOLC1) tagged for deletion. Like the Myths pages, these are generally just ''fun'' pages because they're about some pretty unique characters within the pedestrian group. I think instead of deleting them, they could be put on a single page talking about unique peds throughout the series. What do you think? [[User:Ghost Leader|Ghost Leader]] 23:37, December 10, 2009 (UTC)
 
 
:A page for peds in general is a lot better than having articles for each ped. But please keep the speculations to a minimum. It's not worth having a paragraph explaining what their dialogue means.--'''[[User:Spaceeinstein|Spaceeinstein]]''' 01:14, December 11, 2009 (UTC)
 
 
::I put these pages for deletion some time ago because I saw [[User:Gboyers|Gboyers]] deleting other random ped articles. So thats why I tagged them and think they should be deleted. '''''[[User:Chimpso|Chimpso]]''''' 03:49, January 9, 2010 (UTC)
 
 
== Chinatown Wars vehicles images ==
 
 
Hi. I was wondering, how were you able to take good closeups of the vehicles in the game (i.e. [[:Image:YankeeGTACW.png|Yankee]], [[:Image:AdmiralGTACW.png|Admiral]], [[:Image:Blista (GTACW).png|Blista]], etc)? Standard camera views seem to be too far away to depict them in detail. Also, which emulator were you using? - [[User:ZS|ZS]] 01:33, January 11, 2010 (UTC)
 
 
:Interacting with the dumpster provide a zoomed in view of the camera so I place the vehicle next to one and orientate the camera. Then I resized the image by two to get an even closer look. I use Desmume.--'''[[User:Spaceeinstein|Spaceeinstein]]''' 21:25, January 11, 2010 (UTC)
 
 
::Thanks, you got a good eye there. This should help when I cover Chinatown Wars. - [[User:ZS|ZS]] 13:17, January 12, 2010 (UTC)
 
 
== [[Upstate Liberty]] ==
 
:Hi, I was just curious, could you help me finish the Upstate Liberty page. [[User:ZS|ZS]] is helping to, and I just wanted to get all the help I can on that page? Thanks :)--[[User:Gta-mysteries|Gta-mysteries]] 01:27, April 11, 2010 (UTC)
 
 
== Manager Position Open ==
 
 
Hey. I think its time that GTW promoted a new [[Manager]] (bureaucrat). This user would mostly be a "lead admin", coordinating the efforts of the other admins, making sure all the little jobs get done, and making sure the site's organisation works properly. I thought I'd give you the opportunity to put your name forward. If you would like to be considered, please [http://gta.wikia.com/index.php?title=Grand_Theft_Wiki_talk:Promotion/suggestions&action=edit&section=new&preload=Grand_Theft_Wiki_talk:Promotion/hashbang2 nominate yourself].

Sup man. Yea, I know, I got like one edit, but I am from the CoDWiki. Whatever.
 
 
Well, I got a question about a game (SA):
 
 
Do you have any suggestions on how to do the mission "[[Cesar Vialpando (Mission)|Cesar Vialpando"? ]]
 
 
I can't figure out how to get points! I already tried pressing hydraulics and then press direc, keys, but I didn't got points! Well, I asked you cause you seem a senior user and seem to know a lot about GTA. Thanks!

== Proposing a rename for a page ==
 
I spoke of this on the talk page, but no one has replied so I'll bring it here. The [[AR-15]] page should be renamed "M16 Variants". My reasoning for suggesting this is two-fold:
 
*Firstly: The AR-15 is a semi-automatic civilian sporting rifle ''derived from'' the M16 series long guns used by the US military.
 
*Secondly: No ''semi-automatic only'' "M16s" (i.e., ''actual'' AR-15s) have appeared in any GTA game to date. They've all been full auto
 
*And thirdly: "M16" is just a much more common name. I've met people who had no clue what an AR-15 is, yet knew exactly what an M16 is.
 
So, that's my case. I await response. [[User:Ghost Leader|Ghost Leader]] 00:42, July 4, 2010 (UTC) (forgot to sign, sorry)
 
 
:Are all of them variants of M16 or are some of them M4? I could either move it to "M16" or split them up to "M16" and "M4." Which do you prefer?--'''[[User:Spaceeinstein|Spaceeinstein]]''' 13:57, July 4, 2010 (UTC)
 
 
::"M16" or "M16 Variants" would encompass the entire system (which the M4 is technically still a variant within, despite having it's own lengthy development cycle in real life that was separate from the M16A2 rifle), so that would be preferable as any new variants that appear in future games can be classified under that basic name. So far, GTA4 and its Episodes are the only games that have featured an M4 (the Colt 733 that appeared in the previous games isn't technically a derivative of the M4, which carries different model numbers). So as of currently, a separate page for the M4 would encompass the M4 and only the M4, whereas an "M16" or "M16 Variants" page would encompass all variants of the system and collect them all in one place like they are now.

== skateboard ==
 
 
i added a pic on the skateboard page is that ok???
 
 
:Pictures of mods aren't recommended. I do not like pictures of mods because they feel too trivial and unnecessary to include into an article.--'''[[User:Spaceeinstein|Spaceeinstein]]''' 20:08, July 7, 2010 (UTC)
 
 
==Beta Cars==
 
 
Hey, I noticed you deleted the [[Robin (car)]] article. Perhaps you would like to look at the other beta car articles made by [[User:Camboisthebest008]]. Since you seem to be one of the most experienced modders here, I decided to let you take a look at then to confirm or point out that they are fake before I planned to delete them. '''''[[User:Chimpso|Chimpso]]''''' ([[User Talk:Chimpso|Talk]]) 03:14, July 14, 2010 (UTC)
 
 
:Huh? I didn't delete that. The history shows that Gboyers deleted it. Those articles are way too short to be on its own anyway. They should all fit in the beta vehicles page. I can confirm that the ones from VC and SA are true but I have almost no knowledge on the Sony-exclusive titles.--'''[[User:Spaceeinstein|Spaceeinstein]]''' 03:21, July 14, 2010 (UTC)
 
 
== Question about the TV Show I'm Rich in GTA IV ==

Thanks, [[User:TroubledSCC|TroubledSCC]] 00:50, July 15, 2010 (UTC)
 
 
:I do not really understand what you have typed. Are you asking if McTony's car is available in the game? The answer would be no.--'''[[User:Spaceeinstein|Spaceeinstein]]''' 00:52, July 15, 2010 (UTC)

==Edit Warring==
 
I wasn't in an edit war, i was correcting something that i wrote that GTAFAN keeps messing up. What he is writing is poorly written, wrong and sounds shit. I do not have a habit of undoing peoples edits, im just trying to make it better.
 
Thank u for those kind words of wisdom. Maybe u should preach those elsewhere, perhaps on GTAFAN's talk page instead of just mine.
 
 
That explosion myth isn't a myth, there is an explosion. GTAFANs edits are baseless too if mine are though.
 
 
Anyway, as both endings are considered canon until Rockstar say one. Remember how Timur says Dimitri has been killed in Departure Time, why would he say this after Pegorino is killed on happiness island. I played Out of comission and there is a slight fireball in the sky, go watch the revenge ending on youtube and you'll see.

== GTA SA: Special Merit ==
 
 
Hi, how are you? I am still new to GTA and the wikia system, so please understand my noobness XD
 
 
actually I need help :D
 
 
In the mission "555 We Tip", it is claimed that one can obtain a bp, fp dp and ep Merit. The method on the "special vehicles in gta sa" page is rather unclear. i dont understand "leave the car open to the garage (as the car is locked when you close it), make some fire, then enter the car while on fire to destroy it and to fail the mission".
 
 
if u have time, please explain this to me ;)

Hey, thanks for the welcome.
 
 
Quite honestly I won't be contributing much. I already had a wikia account from contributing to the fallout wiki. I thought they were linked and that tidbit was bugging me. If I play through GTA:IV again or finally get around to getting Liberty City Stories I'll be sure to try and add something to the community. I wasted many hundreds of hours on San Andreas so am most definitely a fan of the franchise. peace.
