GTAWikia essay

The nerve of some contributors. :D

 

http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Helicopter_(GTA_LCS)

If the player manages to end the game in 100 % completion, a normal Police Maverick (without special abilities) will appear on the Newport Multistory Car Park opposite the Pay 'n' Spray garage in Staunton Island, near the player's safehouse as a special bonus which itself requires another chopper to reach such height.

Going through the wiki and came across Clarence Little's page and I saw this:

It made me think of GTA 5 speculation after the first trailer, just how everyone thought the black guy in the tank top was CJ because apparently every black guy in a tank top is CJ. The site's been better at cutting bullsh*t though, I haven't had to post here much

Although not an "official" recommendation, trivia sections are usually to be taken as a grain of salt. We hate them and always will, they're essentially a mosh-pit for all the random junk that doesn't belong somewhere else, in a more formal manner. It's sad that the original owner/administrators back in those days allowed it, Wikipedia don't and I can totally see there. We have and still are filtering out trivia sections and hope to eventually completely outrid them. Enough of the information in them can be integrated into the main article, they should only really be used as a very last resort if something doesn't really fit into the main article sections.

Here is your initial culprit

https://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Special:Contributions/The_GTA_Nerd

Like a lot of editors, he's changed and makes decent edits nowadays so it was probably a spur of the moment thing.
 

Strangely, this guy not only decided it was "fine", but also went ahead and added more jizz to the mix.

https://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Clarence_Little?diff=next&oldid=669951

https://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Special:Contributions/RageQuit

He turned out to be a sh*tposter on a couple other wikis and hasn't been around since.

 

Also when you removed it, this guy even reinstated it.

https://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Clarence_Little?diff=1097989&oldid=1097988

https://gta.wikia.com/wiki/User:Unknown_Educational_Software

I've got my eye on this guy, he's been posting a lot of sh*t lately.

hahahaha ... muppet!

For your information and education - The editor's user page is the only place we allow, and in fact direct our wiki users to add their fan fiction and an editor is permitted to lie about themselves to their hearts content. In this day and age of internet whack-jobs, I would actually recommend users do not post too much truthful information about themselves on their user page.

 

The fact that you persisted in harassing the user after being told not to, even going to the lengths of your childish youtube stunt, just shows up your pettiness and I'm still considering whether to make the block permanent and report it to Fandom staff as a breach of Fandom TOU.

If it’s fan fiction, he should’ve said that it was instead of keeping on going with it. It isn’t childish to call people out for lying about their military service, just look up any stolen valor video on YouTube!

 

If I were reverting all his edits on his userpage and bugging him with messages every single day then that’s one thing, but all I’m doing is asking if he could validate his claims that he claims aren’t fan fiction and since he was clearly lying about one of them, I called him out on it. What of it?

Does anyone still edit on GTA Wikia these days? Seems like bureaucracy has taken over the fandom.

Yes

Speaking of which, can someone get rid of the picture on this page for a voice actor because when I reverse searched it, it wasn't Bob Serva, it was some dude named William Pleban. I would be more than willing to do it myself but I'm still banned for like another month rip

So now, according to the bureaucratic nazis on there, Red Dead is part of the HD universe. Seems like everything we do on there now, it's reverted.

Just revert it back and remind them that, by that logic, GTA 3 is part of the HD universe too

Actually, looking at that, it's got a lot of fanon related stuff, like the birth of Giovanni da Verrazzano (who isn't even f*cking mentioned in the game) and the birth year of Horatio Humboldt.

 

@Monkeypolice188 @smurfynz ; what are your thoughts on that and the above (probably going to be merged) post, where Red Dead is part of the HD era? Is there any proof outside of easter eggs and Marston being a parent in the character creator?

And Los Santos County being established in 1888. Couldn't find any official sources on that.

 

There's some facts which get deleted by these bureaucratic nazis. Seems like their opinion is correct and anyone normal user that edits get a reverted.

When in doubt, make a point on the article’s talk page and their user talk page. If nothing, come here

Personally I don't believe there should be any reason to force a connection between the two games, let alone their universes. But I wouldn't say the real-life location mentions are anything to go by, as there are several cases where that happens in the GTA universe too. I'd prefer for there to be a clear gap between these two game universes and try not to force connections which may just be subtle references, not canonical ties. I'll see what I can do about that edit. Thanks for bringing it up, as it seems to have gone right over my head.

Hey, their face textures are ridiculously similar. It's easy to guess that Clarence was likely modelled on Playboy (or vice versa) just like most white characters were modelled on Niko.

I hate that the pages describing cut content from the games are called "Beta Releases" like seriously, for a wiki that's supposed to have "complete detailed information" they couldn't pick an approriate name like, you know "Scrapped Content of (game)"? Like what does "Beta Releases in GTA IV" make you think it's about? Beta VHS props found in the game? Even more embarassing for the wiki that they still haven't changed that, understandable a few years back cause everyone was badly using the word but now that it's less frequent, there's no excuse.

Also, looking at the history of the Beta GTA V page, there's this user Liaelysium that reverted in 2016 the edits of someone that had put information about the missions that were completely true, in fact it was all taken directly from this forum and the admins never did anything about that retarted idiot reverting actual real information. Unbelievable. 

Just so you know this is constructive critisim of my part.

Now the bureaucratic bastards are purging parts of the trivia as well as tips that might be helpful to some players.

 

Beauracracy is turning that site upside down.

You remember that mob guy in Vice City's intro that sounded exactly like Earnest Kelly, because for some reason they also gave the voice actor a second role?

Well, I changed it a long ago and now it's back to 'unknown' because "He'S nOt CreDitEd fOr thAt" even though for someone that has played Mafia 1 for most of his childhood, I know George DiCenzo when I hear him. And anybody with half a brain would think Earnest's and that mobster's voices are exactly the same aswell.


They're trying to make it look like the wiki works solely on facts but had custom 'removed' missions from TTDISA until Vadim became the first person to think "Hey, maybe there's no way these removed missions are 100% accurate"
It was right there in TTDISA's readme too.

I mean for posterity's sake, it's always good to have a cited source outside of "He sounds just like X because Y"

You can remove them yourself, they've gotten a lot better at not throwing fits over removing misinformation

The point of the wiki is to document the games, not teach you how to play them. The decision to remove the tips sections from mission articles was voted on by the community. If you want to be taught how to complete Wrong Side of the Tracks, open a GTA SA FAQ and scroll down to the mission.

For a wiki that's heavily moderated and will revert any post that doesn't fit the beauracrats, I'm surprised that's still in the trivia.
