GTAWikia essay

Not as dumb as the person who thinks Jamie Gosselin is the governor of North Yankton.

A bump just because Rockstar shockingly got back to me and the GTAWikia folks were right all along.

Yeah, I have to admit to a bit of a red-face here. I (along with other staff) have reverted several edits after that nonsense was added when others have tried to change this to different nonsense names but never noticed the original addition in Dec 2016 was fan-fiction.

I've noticed a lot of GTA wikia fanon revolves around celebrities or other ingame media related things more than anything else. I dunno what its appeal is to fanon makers but if anything, pages about those topics should be given a closer eye.

http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Marco_Forelli

can someone confirm the minor cutscene guy from Vice City is the one we have to kill in San Andreas? I've never seen any proof to this. Correct me if I'm wrong, but the claim of Marco from San Andreas being the guy pictured in the Vice City cutscenes aswell is a pretty new edit with no backstory or explanation as to where the guy even got that idea from. I haven't even seen his name in the game files, and you'd expect him to be named CSMarco or something if the wiki says so.

I'm pretty sure that's not him, but there are audio files where CJ calls him Marco.

that I know. But there's no evidence of him being the same guy as the one in VC.

I reverted it to an earlier version before the uncited Vice City connection was made. It just seems like fanon, which is especially funny since the dude who threw all that sh*t in was getting on someone for doing the same thing.

Don't blame him, this is your culprit.

 

I remember reviewing Kamikatsu's edits at the time and I think I found enough evidence to support it as a good faith edit (or at least could not immediately dis-prove it) so left it.

If a sentence begins with "this may be...", it does not belong in the trivia section.

Funny, the same happened in the old NFS Wiki where the suckers that managed things there, deleted any change with proper information, and would block you from editing.

Would there be any interested in a wiki managed by gtaf? As in, actual content based on real sources.

 

Just so long as there's cited sources and the moderators/admins aren't power hungry sh*tf*ckers who are hell bent on making sure their edits aren't reverted.

 

 

Hey, it only took me like two years. https://gta.wiki/

 

There isn't anything setup yet, so far account reg is not online.

 

What's everyone opinions on submitting content? Post it here first so everyone can contribute/verify then move it to the wiki?

Lol I got IP banned for editing the Foxbody page during the beta of NFS2015. I should note that none of my info was taken from the beta. I just corrected the horsepower rating (since I hadn't known the game had bumped it up) and the model year. So they IP banned me. I don't know when, but someone DID unban me, but that's the last f*ckin' time I ever try to edit on that site.

So R* parodied a song that came out six years after SA was released?

No, the trivia point as I read it claims that the 2010 song plagiarizes R*, not the other way around. It could be read either way but can obviously only mean one way. Admittedly the user that added that trivia point has been blocked previously for warring over inserted false info so I wouldn't be upset by its removal ;) .

This doesn't seem correct to me. I checked the corresponding page by reading the events of "Six years" and there's no mention about Woozie, or any connection with LCS ?!?

From the Four Dragons page:

Mention of this on Woozie's page makes a big assumption that he still controls the venue. I haven't heard the LCS radio audio to know if there is any verification there so I would tend to leave it until it can be proved otherwise (a "good faith assumption").

I don't think that Nicki Minaj plays GTA or looks at it for inspiration for her music...

Or you could, you know, create a separate thread for your own wiki, seen as this is a thread for GTA Wikia.

Your post makes no sense at all. We can create any new threads we want, or even new boards, why would I use this thread for it?

I think Monk may have taken "here" to literally mean "in this topic" rather than "somewhere on GTAForums". :)

I removed HALF of the beta information and they restored unconfirmed sh*t. I think the admins of the website's admins are 6 year olds.

I don't generally look at the content on the other language versions, but that was added in 2008 and that Spanish "Admin" has also been inactive since 2008 (so I doubt you'll get a reply to your talk page message).

Details? I'm keen to remove as much "beta" garbage as possible if it can be proved to be garbage.

btw... I'd love to be 6 again... Hell, I'd even take 36... although I think 2005-6 was when my PC CD-ROM drive destroyed my GTA III CD, so perhaps not. :D

It's kinda annoying how language wikis are just entirely separate wikis rather than a translated version, there's plenty of super accurate translation software out there, and I'm not talking Google translate, lol.

The app for GTA Wiki is barely usable anymore. Apart from ads, they made their font huge now.
