I clearly hear that DJ said Sounds not Sound. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Mrmarkus6 (talkcontribs) 14:42, July 3, 2018‎ (UTC) Please remember to sign your talk page messages with ~~~~.

A few things

1stly, thanks for your continued efforts expanding on the radio articles, particularly those in the 2D Universe which were severely lacking in content.

To keep us off your back while you work, please pay attention to the following tips:

  1. Read over the manual of style - Titles should be in italics, not bold italics
  2. Don't over-link. Generally only link the first mention of a page per section, or in the case of a short/stub article, only once per page will do. Walls of yellow links are unfriendly.
  3. Try to avoid linking in headings - I have changed some on the Radio Stations in GTA London to un-linked and added {{Main|Pagename}} links.
  4. Trivia should be avoided and integrated into article body wherever possible.

Thanks again for the work. Smurfy: illuminate - communicate - spectate 00:38, July 4, 2018 (UTC)

Explanations:
  • Q: What does exactly mean "Following from this, headings of GTA games must be both full form and italicized, but not linked."?
    • A: This is specific to Headings, So in a section/article that has multiple headings for each GTA game that applies, the heading/sub-heading should say the name of the game in full, in italics, with no link in the heading.
  • Q: Then it says "Titles of television, film and radio programs, musical albums, games and newspapers and magazines within the GTA universe itself, as well as real life equivalents of these, must be italicized as well. // Following from this, headings of these in-game works must also be italicized, but not linked." Does it mean that everytime I mention a radio station I have to write it in italics? And by writing the headings in italics does it mean that in the article of, say, Bounce FM, I have to put "Playlist", "Video", "Trivia" and "See Also" (i.e. all the headings in italics)?
    • A: OK, I can see how that may be a little confusing. Headings should be in normal (non-italics) unless they meet the specific criteria of being the name of a published work, be it a real GTA game or an in-game publication/program. Radio station (and TV channel) names do not qualify, they are business/trading names, not publication titles.
A good page to see the rules in action is Radio Stations.
2D Universe << Main heading, not a publication name, no italics, no link.
Grand Theft Auto << Sub-Heading, game title, in italics, no links
Main article: Radio Stations in GTA 1 << Link
Head Radio << Station name, not italics, link optional
Grand Theft Auto: London 1969 and Grand Theft Auto: London 1961 << Sub-Heading, game title, in italics, no links
Main article: Radio Stations in GTA London << Link
In the case of radio, only names of programs should have italics, so Blaine_County_Radio#Programs for example has Bless Your Heart, Blaine County Radio Community Hour and Beyond Insemination all in italics. The only exception to this concept, off the top of my head, is song titles. We apply the published work rule to album titles but not individual songs. Your specific heading examples within a station page ("Playlist", "Video", "Trivia" and "See Also") should NOT be in italics.
I hope that helps. Smurfy: illuminate - communicate - spectate 04:57, July 4, 2018 (UTC)

LED

To me is like that Reed - "L.E.D." is sampled from Maceo & The Macks - Soul Power' 74 (plays on Master Sounds)

Just listen to them both.

GTA redirect

Sure, for now, for consistency you can recreate it and I won't remove it this time.

One of my long term projects is to review the existing 5000+ redirects and form a cohesive "best practice" redirects policy. Smurfy: illuminate - communicate - spectate 10:11, July 13, 2018 (UTC)

Rename request

This sort of discussion needs to take place on the talk page of the article in question. There is already a redirect page for Grand Theft Auto (song) pointing to Gangster Friday.

Put a {{Move|Grand Theft Auto (song)}} template on Gangster Friday and add your evidence in support of the change to the Talk page. What we'll probably do (to retain the edit history) is delete "Grand Theft Auto (song)" and move the "Gangster Friday" page there.

Images Licensing/Naming

Danger-icon
We kindly ask all of our contributors to please properly name and/or license all images that you upload to the wiki. Image licensing and naming is part of our official Media Policy, and as such, it is asked of all users to respect the policy and add a proper name & license when uploading as described here.

Licenses
Whenever you upload an image to the wiki, towards the bottom of the page there is an option to add a license.

  • For images that are game screenshots, use the appropriate Screenshots & in-game logos.
  • For non-game screenshots (pictures taken from the web etc.), select This image is used under Fair Use.
  • For images that are not licensed, e.g. images you have created from scratch yourself, select This is in the Public Domain.

Names
As a general rule of thumb, image names should follow the following pattern:

"PageSubjectName-GTAgame-OptionalDescription.png"

The name can be modified in the bar right above the "add license" option when you are uploading it, and must match with the Media Policy (a table of correct names can be seen here).

What you should do now
Because your recent upload was non-compliant, you are now expected to take steps to fix the issues with your file(s). There is a detailed tutorial on how to do this here.

If you have any questions about the policy, please use the dedicated section, or if you need assistance fixing your files, please contact me on my talk page or that of any other staff member.

Ignoring this message can lead to the file(s) you uploaded being deleted and possibly to a block if you continue to ignore the policy on subsequent uploads. For more information on licensing and copyright, see here.

Thank you!

Lazlow edit revert

Sorry, for some reason my undo reason disappeared. The reason I removed the image from the page (but didn't delete the image itself) was: there is already a real-life image of him on the page, in the image gallery where it belongs. 

"What to Avoid: Adding images alongside text in loose form. Images should only be in the lead infobox or one of the organised galleries."
manual of style

I'm actually going to consider whether we should add a real life image to the infobox for all the real people who make physical appearances in game since their pages are a combination of character and actor page. The 5 new DJs, Lazlow, Phil Collins etc Smurfy: illuminate - communicate - spectate 00:12, July 21, 2018 (UTC)
