Re RfP

Must remember a day lasts 36 hours. Sorry, it's almost over here. Was the wordmark swap intentional too? Smurfy: illuminate - communicate - spectate 07:53, April 1, 2018 (UTC)

thanks

Hello

Thanks for stopping by :)
Currently I'm gathering knowledge about wiki texts. I hope you would help me out.

This is a round edged border. How do I make it a sharpened edged?

About contributions

Greetings, sorry for bothering, i just wanted to ask somehing about adding content / editing pages, I added one comment under topic GTA San Andreas(mission Jizzy) and got a message saying thanks for contribution but the added comment dissapeared, so can it be because i maybe wrote it incorrectly(i am new here,and still learning syntax) or is it maybe taken to consideration before deciding if it's appropriate and true? As i remember, i clicked the "Save" button.. Thanks anyway :)

MarijaPetrova (talk)

one question about my theory of if this is possible, but, i wondering if i could pick up lamar using franklin bagger and then go to safe house, get chop, and get back on bike, lamar gets back on, and chop follows. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Minecraftwiz219 (talkcontribs) Please remember to sign your talk page messages with ~~~~.

Thanks for alerting him, however I reverted, since he decided to affiliate from GTA Wiki, now we have to lay down ground roles like we did for GTW community split. You may close the discussion now. Thanks. :) Monk (Bureaucrat Bureaucrat) Talk 07:11, May 25, 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for that, I did it on my phone and that drop down choice obviously didn't "stick". Wasn't meant to be indefinite :) Smurfy: illuminate - communicate - spectate 10:58, July 10, 2018 (UTC)

Hey just wondering if you could show me something since I am new to editing on here, if I am typing the name of a character or something in a gta game, when I type the name, for example if I type niko it is in yellow font, then it sends the person to nikos page, I would like to know how to make it so when I type something like that it sends them to a link for that characters page, thanks DarkDiamond11 (talk) 00:58, September 8, 2018 (UTC)

Hey I found out how to do it, Nevermind, Thanks though ;) DarkDiamond11 (talk) 01:49, September 8, 2018 (UTC)

Heavy Barrel

Hey man. What's up?

You seemed pretty safe assuming the Heavy Barrel should have been a separate option. Why you changed your mind all of a sudden?

You should know I messed up half of the content you had to fix for many weapons (how horrible I am :P), and I think your statement about the barrels separated from the whole attachment group was a valid point.

Maybe I should rearrange the tables on each Mk II weapon to represent the in-game menus, since, as always, I left them untouched for decades :/ --BodyArmor-GTACW-Android SWAT Cam F VehicleWeapon-GTACW-Android Detonator-GTACW-Android Crate-GTACW-Android 03:16, October 7, 2018 (UTC)

For me, it would be good. Even some land vehicles have a single group for just the headlights (default and xenon). Just make sure to fix the tables for the standard options, as some of them still have the expand option for the whole thing (see Pistol Mk II for a reference). —Preceding unsigned comment added by Camilo Flores (talkcontribs) Please remember to sign your talk page messages with ~~~~.
Well, that's the fixed version. The other ones, mainly assault rifles, have the odd layout, with a template for the whole standard options (liveries, livery colors and tints), placed within the table and having the expand option. There's an example. --BodyArmor-GTACW-Android SWAT Cam F VehicleWeapon-GTACW-Android Detonator-GTACW-Android Crate-GTACW-Android 02:46, October 10, 2018 (UTC)
Good, good. Exactly what I could figure. Maybe you can be better at completing and fixing the Mk II weapons than me at the time I started it :P --BodyArmor-GTACW-Android SWAT Cam F VehicleWeapon-GTACW-Android Detonator-GTACW-Android Crate-GTACW-Android 03:20, October 13, 2018 (UTC)

Two possible edits to GTA IV Beta Releaes?

There are two things regarding GTA IV Beta Releases that I am considering to add, but I wanna double check if it is needed:

1) The third runway at Francis Intl is removed. I intend to add a note under that sevtion stating that the third runway makes the runway area at Francis Intl resemble the runway at JFK Intl more closely, compared to the final version which has the runway area resembling that of LaGuardia.

2) There is a statement stating that an airport intended to be added at Alderney has been cut. My intended addition: "based on the intended position of the airport, it would likely be based on either Newark Liberty Intl or Linden airport.

Can you verify if such edits are necessary? Looking forward to receive a reply. And if the answer is a no, I am fine with it.

Both are these are completely unsourced and probably the result of people making concepts. Monk (Bureaucrat Bureaucrat) Talk 12:29, November 9, 2018 (UTC)



Looks like a no-go for this one, then.

First one is based on the map in the Beta Releases.

It's still your call nonetheless.

Minor Turbulence

I noticed that After the Mission Minor Turbulence, That if you Steal another Vehicle, & Push the Destroyed Merryweather Mesa Into Trevors Garage you can Save it. 

I was told by Monkeypolice188  and Smurfy  that its not Considered Trivia. I tried asking them what it is, but theyve yet to answer. So im asking you, If its not Trivia, then what Is it?

Profile Page

I was wondering, i'm not new to fandom but i'm new to the GTA wiki spefically. I noticed on your main profile page, there was a long strip of different things you liked the most; CJ being your favourite protaganist, the M60 being your favorite weapon, and so forth. Is that custom made by you, or reserved for admins and other people in positions of power here, as i saw some other ones having the same thing going on. If so, is that just for you guys or can i do that too? ExodusBF4 (talk) 09:16, December 25, 2018 (UTC)ExodusBF4

It's your own profile page, and by that it means it's your personal space on this wiki. So of course you can, as long as no sensitive material is being posted there :) NoirlimeTalk | Contribs 10:00, December 25, 2018 (UTC)

  In regards to the reply that you sent me about your custom profile page, thanks for the help, but i don't know anything about coding or stuff like that. Thanks anyways!

New to editing

I do make freuqent edits on other wikis, and i noticed that the editing format here is different. How can i make the classic editing theme default for all the edits i make? When i say "classic edit theme", i mean the one i see the most. The way i'm editing this right  now is the format i like the most. But when i go to edit a regular page...say, the GTA SA Minigun, i get a much different edit box. How can i make the one i am using right now universal for all my edits?

Edit style that i don't really like

In regards to the edit you made for the Combat Sniper, i meant to put the automatic shotgun. I forgot the name of it and i accidently put down the TLaD Assault Shotgun instead. Sorry about that.

About the Explosive Shotgun from The Ballad of Gay Tony...

You say the Explosive Shotgun is semi-automatic in game, but that isn't true. When i hold down the fire button while using it, it always fires automatically, though at a very slow rate. Sure, it doesn't match up with the real AA-12's 300ish RPM, but it is still fully automatic. Perhaps that is a PC only feature? I play TBoGT on my PS3, so maybe it's exclusive to console. A side note, using the crouch glitch with the Explosive Shotgun can make it fire closer to 300 RPM, but i digress.

ExodusBF4 (talk) 19:23, February 26, 2019 (UTC)ExodusBF4


Uhh, i'm pretty sure most weapons require player input to fire each shot on a semi-auto or pump actions. Perhaps i am wrong, but i don't recall something like the Country Rifle from GTA SA, or the Combat Sniper from GTA IV having that feature. Maybe i'll go hop on GTA IV later and test that out.

ExodusBF4 (talk) 21:22, February 26, 2019 (UTC)ExodusBF4


I was looking through your profile on the different gun facts (all spot on by the way, i can tell you use imfdb extensivley), i noticed that you said the AA-12 seen in TBoGT is semi-automatic, yet in game, holding down the fire button makes it fire full-auto. It is NOT semi-auto as you say it is.

Perhaps you should change that?

The picture of Phil Cassidy from GTA LCS is screencapped from a modded GTA SA, as I actually looked into the animation, it doesn't exist in LCS.

Cosmicdustjunkie

Hey there, Ultimate. I'm a regular user and occasional editor to the GTA Wiki. I'm a big car guy and it's one of my favorite aspects of the GTA Series. Recently, however, I've noticed a user by the handle of "Cosmicdustjunkie" has been going around deleted swathes of info from car pages, or even replacing them with incorrect information (example: just restored the Buccanneer GTA IV description because he replaced most of it with "seventh generation Cadillac Eldorado". I'm very concerned because this seems to be borderline vandalism by this point. Not all of his edits seem to be destructive, but I've noticed he has been just removing or replacing information on the car pages. If you could please look into the matter, that would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Re: Unblocking concerns

Not a problem, I can certainly see where you are coming from. I will admit that I was thinking of this precedent when I made my decision (that turned out to be a poor choice, as the user remained uncivil), and I was also quite ill and tired when I made that decision (I had a cold, and it was around 4:00 AM when I made it), which may have unduly influenced my decision subconsciously. I will remain neutral in any discussion about reversing the block (since I feel that I have already made too many subpar decisions these past few days, not to mention my close personal involvement), but where exactly will such a discussion be held? I would still like to view and/or participate in said discussion.

Re: About 3D universe images

Hello. The newer HUD is a part of a widescreen fix. Apart from the black outline on the textures, nothing is changed. The different lighting in cutscenes is the Trails effect (available in the PS2 versions of the game, but isn't possible to turn on in the PC version) enabled through the use of mods. I talked to Monk about this when I uploaded my first image (https://gta.fandom.com/wiki/File:IslandBridge-GTAVC-Starfish.png) using this mod and he said it was fine, because the effect is present in the original version of the game. SlashM,C 08:30, April 25, 2019 (UTC)

Now that I take a better look at it, the club lighting coupled with Trails isn't a really good idea. I'll try to get similarly good angles from other cutscenes. SlashM,C 05:53, April 27, 2019 (UTC)

Re: Rollback

Hi, thanks for your message. Sorry I have been away for the last 4 days dealing with some IRL issues so this reply will appear somewhat tardy.

1stly, apologies for failing to reply the first time you brought this up. I had started typing a response in December but realised the tone was a bit combative (temper, temper) so I quit out and completely forgot to come back to it to reply more civilly.

You are completely correct that my use of the rollback function has been inappropriate most of the time. A quick check of my history for the last 500 contributions (covering April 2019) shows me I made 33 reversions using "Rollback" and 32 using "Undo" (of which only 9 contained a edit summary reason). Of those 33 Rollbacks, less than a third could be considered vandalism or a repeated undo - I do use that term to intentional insertion of obviously invalid information. My excuse, if I may be allowed one, is usually simply inherent laziness on my part, as shown also by the lack of summaries on the ones where I have used "undo". Sometimes it is a matter of forgetting what it is like to be new to a wiki after 5 years and 27,000+ contributions, forgetting that what appears an "obvious" reason to me may not be obvious to other editors. This definitely falls into a must try harder category for me personally and I will most certainly take your advice on-board.

As far as the issue with McJeff, I think you'll find I don't discriminate and am more than comfortable bringing current Bureaucrats to task, let alone former ones. Aside from the inappropriate use of rollback vs undo which I acknowledge, you'll note there was a subsequent edit (with a brief edit summary) made to both pages within 10 minutes of performing the first rollback to acknowledge that there was some validity to the change I reverted and provide some more explanation for the revert to the user who had (at the time) disabled their talk page by way of a redirect:

  • 2019-04-23T22:55:10 (diff | hist) . . (-129)‎ . . Eugene ‎ (Re-removed speculative bit.)
  • 2019-04-23T22:54:11 (diff | hist) . . (-102)‎ . . Moweesha ‎ (Re-Removed the only speculative bit)
  • 2019-04-23T22:45:05 (diff | hist) . . (+1,248)‎ . . m Moweesha ‎ (Reverted edits by McJeff (talk) to last version by Kamikatsu)
  • 2019-04-23T22:45:00 (diff | hist) . . (+1,169)‎ . . m Eugene ‎ (Reverted edits by McJeff (talk) to last version by Kamikatsu)

McJeff and I have already had the discussion on our difference of opinion on the validity of his edits, and I see some further discussion on that is still ongoing on Monk's talk while I've been away.

Once again, thanks for your willingness to bring this matter to me and I promise to try to do better. Smurfy: illuminate - communicate - spectate 03:17, April 28, 2019 (UTC)

Ni**a Censorship

Hey, I noticed you making a few of these changes to character quotes... as per my agreement with Sannse back in April, I think it is a better idea to use n____a. Smurfy: illuminate - communicate - spectate 22:45, August 8, 2019 (UTC)

Sorry I'm only coming on once or twice a week at the moment. This is all good. I hadn't really tested n____a vs ni__a or any variations using ** or --, was just adverse to using database search wildcard characters ** as censor markers. Surprised she was OK with using ni at the start but I'm happier with that for sure. Smurfy: illuminate - communicate - spectate 02:30, August 13, 2019 (UTC)
