Tom, bro, I really think you need to archive your talk page. Its size is over 50,000 bytes. -- ILan (XDEditsHome ) 16:55, October 31, 2012 (UTC)

Top Video Views

Hey there The Tom!

I'm Jorge and I am on Wikia's Community Development Team. Wikia recently received some video views information and we wanted to congratulate you and your wiki for earning some of the top premium video views across all of Wikia! Not all of the videos that have garnered attention have been embedded on pages. Doing so can could be beneficial for views and of course more videos can be found on, in case you were looking for more!

Should I delete it?

Hey Tom.

I'm gonna reapply for patroller and I wanted to know if I should delete my old request, since it is inactive.


Mikey Klebbitz (talk) 11:22, November 18, 2012 (UTC)

Ok, thanks.

Mikey Klebbitz (talk) 14:22, November 18, 2012 (UTC)


Make sure you vote and comment on my request, Tom.


Mikey Klebbitz (talk) 15:37, November 18, 2012 (UTC)

I made it to patroller, Tom.

Thanks for voting "Yes".

I'm glad that the wiki staff trusted me.

Again, thanks.

Deleting pages

What's up, Tom?

I just saw this page? about a car seen in GTA V's second trailer, and there's already a page about that car, named:? Premium performance sedan.

As the "Premium performance sedan" page already existed, could you delete the "Unnamed saloon" page I'd do it myself, but I'm not sure if I should delete it word by word, or if there's a patroller tool for that.

BTW: Now every time I write a link, the interrogation mark appears too. Could you help me? This is really annoying.

Later on man,

Plagiarism... it is an insult

Hey Tom.

I've heard a lot about this GTA V Wiki, and I just went on a half minute journey to that trash bin today.

It is 100% info took out from this TRUE wiki. Now, I know I will sound like Armando Mendez from GTA VCS, but plagiarism... it is an insult! 

I thought you admins and bureaus were going to tell the wikia to get that GTA Wiki wanna-be disposed.

Not that I have much to do with that, but I'd like to know about things that envolve the wiki.

Shooting Gallery

Hey The Tom!

My name is Jorge and I am on Wikia's Community Development team.

I just wanted to mention that Wikia recently launched the Shooting Gallery], a one-stop-shop for shooter news and the like coming directly from the Shooter wiki community. It acts as a sort of "sub-hub" page to the traditional Video Game hub, allowing people interested in the genre to take a deeper dive. You can actually go check out the Shooting Gallery now.

If you are interested in spotlighting some news or other community updates on the Shooting Gallery, you can just click the "Submit Your News" or "Suggest a Video" button. You can also create a template page with this template: to put on features blogs. This is a good way reward users and let them know their content is Shooter Gallery worth. Hoefully this helps spotlight some of your wiki's great content!

Cleaning house

Hey, Tom !

How were your holidays? Good, I hope.

Listen, this Abs.1998 dude created the page: What You Need To About Grand Theft Auto V.

As well as the lack of the word "know" in-between "to" and "about" , this page is pointless.

I think it doesn't fit any purpose. We have the Grand Theft Auto V for some reason...

So, I think it should be deleted and was wondering if you could do it.

Wikia Game Guide App

Greetings Tom!

I already sent this message to another admin, but doubling up couldn't hurt. Wikia is excited to launch our Game Guides app very soon. The app features access to tens of thousands of wikis and their excellent content. As a popular wiki with a treasure trove of information, we think the GTA wiki would be a great candidate for one the first curated games on the app! But first, we need your help. The Game Guide apps thrives on excellent categorization and a little bit of admin curation. Visit this page to learn more about curating your presense on the Game Guide app:

If you have any questions or need assistance curating the content for the app, please let me know and I will happily help you organize it. Just leave me a message on my talk page!

GTA Myths Wiki


Hi Tom! Me, Istalo and Cloudkit have been having a lot of problems with a user called Zombie22 who has been deleting, un-editing pages and even copying templates and stuff from your user page. We think he should be banned. Thanks, LS11sVaultBoy (talk) 16:24, February 2, 2013 (UTC)

Me too, Vaultboy, Tom. He keeps on adding a section about the Xbox version of Independence FM in GTA IV, just to say there is no Xbox version, when on the fist paragraph it is already said that it only exists on the PC version. I've rollbacked his edits, and he undone my edits. I've undone his edits again. Tom, please take care of that annoying pest.

Hey, remember the incident of that guy? He is creating multiple accounts, and he is trying to pass as a wiki staff member, as of his name, could you ask the wikia staff to block him, so he can't creat anymore accounts? And block him again? He created multiple accounts as of: this, this, and now this. Thanks. istalo (Talk to me) February 11, 2013

Double page

Hello Tom,

I noticed that there are two pages on this wiki about police stations, namely Police station and Police Stations. I would suggest that the latter be removed, since the first has more accurate information. I hope that you agree with me after you've examined them.

Reporting about Sesquatch and T

Hey Tom. I'm tired of "fighting" with those guys. I added a comment saying that Sasquatch has low-quality edits. Everyone else agreed. But wait, now comes "Mr. T" and says that I'm incivil again. Obviously they are against me. I understand my mistakes in the past, but that doesn't means that every comment of mine must be "reported". Ask Thomas0802, since he joined the wiki I helped with his articles. I encouraged him to request patrollership because he has excellent skills. Can you calm down those guys please?

Request Closing and Taking Time Off

Hey Tom. I stated on my request that I would close it at my own request, but I already told Messi about it and he may close it first, but if you want to, you're allowed to

And what Dodo said about, "he (me) will hate me for changing my yes to a no." tell him I am not affected by it. It is my fault for causing this situation. I should have instead, told an admin about the conflict, but, instead, took matters into my own hands and started this mess. I told Sasquatch that I did not stick up for him for the incident after he was "thanking" me on my Talk Page. He is now blocked about what he said about Dodo "not being cut out for admin" on my request's comments. I am over this situation now.

For my cause in this mess, I'm going to take a one week in a half off of this Wiki, Wikia in general. I guess having my big comeback after being inactive for two months didn't turn out so good. I will be more civil next time in the future, I will apply for administrator's rights when I'm soon ready to be one.

HD Era

How are you, Tom?

The GTA IV, its DLC and Chinatown Wars are still considered "GTA IV Era games", though Dan Houser named them along with GTA V the "HD Era".

I think the templates envolving the eras should thus be changed, and the GTA IV Era and GTA IV Era Character Deaths be renamed.

Don't you think so?

Mikey Klebbitz (talk) 15:01, March 19, 2013 (UTC)


I filed a demotion requests against Sasquatch101, please check the promotions board. Jeff (talk|stalk) 02:51, March 20, 2013 (UTC)


I as well as Dodo are up for demotion. I feel that I defended myself, and that dodo spoke first saying lies on tonys admin request. If anything demote us both because he is not a civil editor and I truely care about the wiki. Sasquatch101 (talk) 03:33, March 20, 2013 (UTC)

I reverted his demotion request and blocked him for 3 days. If you think Dodo8 deserves to be demoted, feel free to file a demotion request yourself. I don't know why Sasquatch isn't comprehending the interaction ban, and I feel bad because I believe him when he says he wants nothing but the best for the wiki, but if we've got someone aiming for administrator who can't handle a dispute, I don't know. Anyway, 3 days was what I said when I told Sasquatch and Dodo8 the terms. Jeff (talk|stalk) 03:46, March 20, 2013 (UTC)
I know what you mean, he doesn't seem to intentionally do bad but maybe he needs to be told more clearly the terms of the ban. Tom Talk 18:34, March 20, 2013 (UTC)

Just in case I won't be online, see this post. I'm trying to do the background of the wikitables greyish, because they are white now and hurts viewers' eyes.Dodo8 Talk
To let you know, I picked #E5E4E2. You just have to replace it with the #f9f9f9. Also, delete the last (only the last) edit of Ilan, since it didn't work. Ask me if you have problems with it.Dodo8 Talk
I see. Do you want to pick a color for you or will you choose it yourself?Dodo8 Talk
That would be good too, but I can't see where it can be changed. For the moment just use this color for the background: #A9A9A9. Is it dark enough?Dodo8 Talk
Still not dark enough. I'm picking the darkest: #696969. I hope this one is good. BTW, what do you think about making a Facebook group for our wiki?Dodo8 Talk

I think it's looks good. BTW, I've got a message from Bola. He created the background for us. Also, now it will look good for users with bigger screens:


Also, to fill the white gap, he said:

"Via Special:ThemeDesigner, tab "customization", you will see two options in the Background section: color and graphic, so add my image as graphic and #7b9c93 in the color field.

It's easy, don't worry, you don't need touch MediaWiki pages."

I don't know, do what you think the best. But the background is not good for the users with big screens (like Bola, his screen is twice bigger. The header looks fine for me, it doesn't merges with the background because of that black line. Now I'm working to fix the tags (patroller, chat moderator, admin, etc.)Dodo8 Talk
Yeah, the colors do clash on the right side a little bit, but I still think it looks fine. About the background, we should just leave it this way. If they want a big screen, they should use it for PC gaming, not editing wikis. I use mine for both though. :) I also sent a message to Jeff, saying sorry for what I said last week. Ilan says that Jeff thinks that I try to be favorised by him, and I really don't want him to think that, even if he doesn't accepts my bid, I still want to be friends.Dodo8 Talk


Hi Tom. I was playing GTA San Andreas that my friend gifted to me on my b-day, and I was switching radio channels. I heard the host of CSR 103.9 saying "Have you seen the strange lights and shooting stars in the desert? Just to let you know, it wasn't me!" Also, the Black Project's trivia says that the scientists are talking about aliens or something. And the strange lights are called "ufolights" in the game's files.

I don't believe in myths, but I think we should have a page about UFOs/Aliens, where we will add only concrete evidence and that will be locked to prevent people from adding false things. What do you think?Dodo8 Talk

Ok, so maybe I'll add a page about aliens? How should it be named? Aliens or UFOs?Dodo8 Talk

Improving the home page

I left Dodo a message, since mikey will be unavailable for a couple of days, about adding an Affiliates section to the GTA Wiki homepage. A while back jeff said it was alright and I don't remember if you said it's ok too but mikey does not know how to work the headers so I asked Dodo to help you similarly to how you to guys configured the new backround. The GTA wiki affiliates section will give editors that want to edit about Fanon, Myths and other things a clear link to take so that the GTA wiki does not get bothered with things such as myths. The GTA Myths Wiki really has blossomed over the past couple of months and has many users that could edit on both wikis. The GTA Fanon Wiki also provides a place for GTA fans to go to write about fictional events in the GTA series. I hope you and Dodo will help me and mikey out as we both don't really know where else to go. Thankyou, Sasquatch101 (talk) 04:15, June 9, 2013 (UTC)

Gaming footer template

Hi again. :) I noticed that the gaming footer template at the bottom of the main page used the old, outdated, discontinued Wikia Gaming logo, so I changed it to a slightly different gaming footer that uses a generic gaming logo. On a related note, I would recommend not using the footer template at all, as it adds a lot of links to the main page that are not related to GTA, thus likely negatively affecting the wiki's SEO. Back in 2008 when we created those footer templates, we were simply trying to promote cross-wiki traffic, but since then, we've realized that they do more harm than good, due to the reason I mentioned.

Cleaning Up: Done

I finished cleaning up protagonists' pages. I think we should lock up all three, so we prevent vandalism.Dodo8 Talk

I agree with the medium setting.Dodo8 Talk

GTA V Button


I would like to upload a new version of the button that is displayed on the main page to make it fit in more by making it more similar with others in style. The system does not allow me to upload the new version, since the main page is protected from editing. So perhaps maybe you could do the changes.

Lyrixn (talk) 21:53, June 26, 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for replacing the image and I'm glad, you liked it, but I think that we can both agree that there is still an odd one, that has to be replaced. The one for GTA II, to be more specific, because the one provided right now doesn't have "GTA II" written on it, so only people who have actually seen the cover art know it's GTA II. I made slightly improved versions, that gives a better overview of the game.

Country flags

It passed about a week and everyone who voted supported the idea. These are the complete templates. You just have to replace them on the staff page. Thanks! And BTW, I didn't add Winter Moon's flag because I don't know where he's living.Dodo8 Talk

Thanks, so, any info about Winter Moon's country?Dodo8 Talk

Protected pages


Is there a usergroup that would allow me the editing of protected pages? There are a lot of pages, which are protected, but in my opinion - shouldn't be. I would like to contribute more on the core side of things, like making better images, making text blend in better with the background and possibly even more. That includes the editing of templates.

I will be extra careful, if you trust me with these privileges. I love the series and I'm beginning to love the wikia page. Lyrixn (talk) 09:16, July 5, 2013 (UTC)

I had no idea, you need admin rights for that, because that was definitly not what I was aiming for. I will have to contribute alot more to be eligible for even a nomination to a such position.
General wikipedia has "semi-protected" pages, which can be edited by autoconfirmed users, I thought that wikia provided the same - to have elevated permissions for editing. I personally do not see the point in hard protection of any public pages for people with certain amount of edits. Or atleast have the possibility to tag users that have proven to be trustworthy enough.
I will contact you, when I stumble upon a protected page I wish to edit. Lyrixn (talk) 13:38, July 5, 2013 (UTC)

Need help

Hey Tom, I'm in need of help with sliders, as I have 4+ images that I want to go on 1 slider, but I can't do it. Got any tips or ideas? Also, how's the thinking of my idea coming along? :) Ciao Instulent (talk) 10:58, July 5, 2013 (UTC)


Hey Tom, RTUR made this blog call GTE6YE6JEERDTR, could you delete it & tell him not to make a spamming blog again, so thanks.Cloudkit01 (talk) 19:48, July 5, 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for deleting that horrible blog Tom, talk to me sometime okay. Cloudkit01 (talk) 13:22, July 6, 2013 (UTC)

It's okay Tom, I just letting you know what that guy was doing by making a blog that is alomst looks like a spamming blog or something, talk to me sometime okay. Cloudkit01 (talk) 16:28, July 6, 2013 (UTC)

Manual of Style

It has come to my attention that there isn't a Manual of Style for this Wiki. Now why is that? If we need one for new editors and/or Wikia users, I can create one or "borrow" a concept from another wiki and fit it to GTA Wiki's editing standards.

Mr. T., That's Me! (talk) 23:48, July 5, 2013 (UTC)


Hey can you vote on the Community Noticeboard. Sasquatch101 (talk) 05:03, July 6, 2013 (UTC)


I don't know where you're getting that my dissagreement with Jeff was "unacceptable". I did not offend him in any way, and was just defending my beliefs. I know that Winter Moon is a senior editor, but if he can't make time for the wiki I think he should step down. You can't sufficiently do your admin job while you're only on the wiki a couple times a month. Listen, I don't have anything against Winter Moon, I bet he's a nice guy, but I just think he shoulden't be an admin while being so inactive. I did not mean for my opinion to be taken as personal attacks, but I'll try to keep most of my opinion to myself from now on.  Boomer8 (talk) 05:25, July 7, 2013 (UTC)


Hey Tom, how's it going? Just wondering how the status of my idea is going since it has been some time. Ciao :) Instulent (talk) 09:59, July 7, 2013 (UTC)

OK then, (sorry if I go round in circles) The InstowGroup Wikia is a gaming wiki hub where the big popular game wikis (Watch_Dogs, Agent, RDR Answers etc) are combined together to spread the good editors around to give a nice mix. We already have 5 wikis joined and possibly even more coming soon, such as the minecraft wiki, gears or war etc.. Hopefully that can help. Any questions please don't hesitate to ask :) Instulent (talk) 10:59, July 7, 2013 (UTC)

Well, what about the 'hub' part of it?? I could see that working fine.. Instulent (talk) 14:08, July 7, 2013 (UTC)

Well (this might sound silly to you but..) people may not of heard of Watch_Dogs or GTA before. Take a look at CC, thats like a hub for people from all wikis from GTA to LoS etc.. but my idea is for the large gaming communitys to come together.. Instulent (talk) 14:16, July 7, 2013 (UTC)


Tom, I found a thig that makes images look like an animation on Minecraft Wiki. Mathmagian from Community Central liked the idea and created a similar one: I asked Bola from the Spanish Wiki to apply it. I need it for the BAWSAQ pages, to make the decreases/increases will look like an animation.Dodo8 Talk

Nothing. I just wanted you to be aware of it. Most of the times you need an admin's approval to edit MediaWiki.Dodo8 Talk
I asked Bola to add the new coding, but he is inactive. Would you mind doing it? Here's the page: Dodo8 Talk
Could you enter the chat? I'm not sure if it works.Dodo8 Talk
I think you forgot to add style.css to our Wikia.css Dodo8 Talk
You should check my discussion with Mathmagician, he thinks he found the problem: Dodo8 Talk
It works! But I think I should make this template a little bit faster, isn't it? Template:BAWSAQ/Slider Dodo8 Talk
It's the same speed, but it's ok. Also, I asked Mathmagician to create a template that will look like this:
I think we should place on the community messages. :) Dodo8 Talk
No, it's just decorative.Dodo8 Talk

Unjustified reversion of edits


User:Cloudkit01 undid my edits under article Niko Bellic. I asked for an explanation on his talk page, but as of 18:08, July 17, 2013 (UTC), I haven't gotten any.

The purpose of my edit was to citate the source of the nicknames, by creating a text hovering containing the names, I did the same under Claude. Unless Cloudkit01 has a valid argument on why he's against the hovering, I'd expect him to undo his reversion, which was uncalled for. Lyrixn (talk) 18:08, July 17, 2013 (UTC)

It seems that contacting bureaucrats directly actually has an effect on something. While he ignored me on his talk page, he sure was pretty quick to undo his reversion after me posting under yours. Good day to you! Lyrixn (talk) 18:33, July 17, 2013 (UTC)
Yes, it's resolved. Lyrixn (talk) 18:51, July 18, 2013 (UTC)

Possible absence notice :(

Hi there, in about twenty-four hours time I'll be leaving on a five week holiday. I'll not have Wi-Fi access because I would like to save some cash for GTA and a new HDTV. I may still be able to use the internet via mobile, but my access to editing could drop to minimal at best. I'll try do my best while away and then return to business as usual when I return to the UK on 1st September. JBanton (Talk | Contribs) 10:27, July 20, 2013 (UTC)

Enjoy your holiday J! Have fun! :) Dodo8 Talk
Thanks, I'll try. Hope you and Tom enjoy the time as well :) JBanton (Talk | Contribs) 10:44, July 20, 2013 (UTC)
I'm not sure if I can enjoy it, I have 37 pages at Maths for holiday work... But I might go to the beach in September, before school starts :) See you soon! Dodo8 Talk

BAWSAQ Template almost done

Mathmagician created the coding, but now we have to create a MediaWiki page, since it has some special coding. All the coding here must be added to MediaWiki:BAWSAQ.Dodo8 Talk

Thanks, it works! When it'll be done we will place it on the main page :D Dodo8 Talk
I'm still thinking where to place it on the main page... Mathmagician suggested me to place it in the slider thingy (the one with GTA games), but I fear it won't be so "popular" if I place it there, I'll have to do some tests on a wiki where I can edit the main page.

Hi, again. Mathmagician added some new features and unfortunately, you'll have to edit the MediaWiki:BAWSAQ again. Replace the code with the one on this page:

Dodo8 Talk

I know, I asked Mathmagician to create a graph from some Images I gave to him. Purpose, at first I wanted to place it on the right of the page, advertising BAWSAQ, but it's too big and Wikia is not allowing us. So I'll just place on the main page.Dodo8 Talk
