  • I believe, we had come to a decision, with your final edit on the Gangstar Vegas page, being the end of the edit war...

    But, this user, TLL is constantly vandalizing this article, removing the gameplay, controls and upgrades sub-section information, among other errors throughout the article. This fellow has been doing the same thing with the "Jason Malone" article. I've like you to revert the edits back to how it was before his unneccessary removal i.e, to your final edit, since the page is protected, and also tell him to stop his stupid undoing work !!!

    • I know you just won't trust me, but I will add what needs to be added. Anyway, my username's first part isn't "TLL", it's "TTL".

  • The nav menu is a little outdated. When you get the chance, can Gangstar Vegas and Gangstar: New Orleans be added to the "GAMES" section. Additionally, I guess Jason Malone and The Player (G:NO) should be added to the "CHARACTERS" section.

  • That user is just undoing my edits to Gangstar Vegas and Jason Malone. I told him that I would add what needs to be added myself, but he undid my edit to Gangstar Vegas just as it was unlocked. I will now be checking his edits and adding what needs to be added. He has also admitted to adding blog-post-based comments (saying things like "Lol...", "...", etc.) just to get a badge. Also, I suspect he made one blog post just so he could make a blog-post-based comment (he asked whether or not should there be articles for every mission  on a comment, but he could just ask that in the blog post itself (probably needless to say, he just filled the blog post's body with "-under construction-")).

    • Would me (a mere unbiased observer) editing the entire thing make this edit war come to a peaceful conclusion? If so then I will happily do the edits right now.

    • I have turned back from the arguement and moved on, because I have better things to do, rather than haggle around on an article that hardly anyone in the world is gonna view...

      And as for your question Alpine5000:- Do what you must !!!

      And with that, I have unfollowed all my message threads in this wiki... so I am no longer notified by unneccessary messages! :)

  • There are a lot of categories that should be removed due to unnecessary capitalization, and one article is the target of an edit war currently, so I've been thinking about requesting adminship or bureaucracy. It seems that currently only one staff member is active; well, uh, you seem to be busy right now, so I wanted to help with the wiki.

    • To be quite honest, I wouldn’t mind having the same permissions if it isn’t too much trouble. I’ve made over 130 edits so far and none of them were vandalism or inappropriate so you you don’t need to worry about me going rogue. Additionally, as I’ve already said, I know my way around the admin section of a wiki. I don’t need or want block/ban privileges but lock limited lock privileges would be nice. The opening page could also use a facelift.

    • Looks like the content moderator role is what you're looking for; basically admin without blocking/banning. Sure.

  • The Gangstar Vegas article is very likely going to be a target of an edit war. I guess locking it would help.

    • I mean, it is the battlefield of an edit war. TTL and the other chap (who's name I cannot recall) have been undoing each others edits for the past two hours or more. I'd strongly encourage you to lock the page down until we can sort things out.

    • Right. And there might be a rule about reverting edits three times over a 24-hour period.

  • Jetmeme237 Mac has created an unnecessary infobox, it lacks core parameters. It should be deleted.

  • One user (User:Anirudh55) is damaging Gangstar Vegas. Another (User:Jetmeme237 Mac) is vandalizing it.

    • I don't think they are editing under good faith. I told Anirudh55 that the "Controls" sub-section is to list the game's controls, not its platforms, and that it's not necessary to bold sub-sections, but he caused those damages again. He unnecessarily capitalized some words and unnecessary expansion has been made, with some necessary information being removed.

    • I see a minor edit war has taken place. I'll go and leave a few passive suggestions on his wall to try and eliminate any misunderstandings.

      As for the capitalizations and the like, these can just be corrected with a succeeding edit.

  • There is a certain individual who shall remain nameless (user:2005emsaguindan) that capitalizes every word they write and doesn’t seem to have a clear understanding of how to use articles (a vs an)... or punctuation. I’m not sure what to do about this user but action does need to be taken as soon as possible.

    Probably a ban would be in order since most of their contributions have been one-line articles anyway. I probably spent more time editing their Shorthorn article than it would have taken me to write it myself.

      That’s (an excerpt of) his most recent contribution. I don’t know if his grammar really has improved much to be honest. I reached out to him about the use of “an” vs “a” about a week ago but he doesn’t seem to have heeded my advice. I worry that the same would be true for a manual of style. With that said, I’d be happy to create such a manual regardless. Just point me to where I would create it and I’ll get to work.

      Well, I've created an article called "Manual of Style" a few minutes ago, now it just needs to be filled.

  • The Gangstar: New Orleans article might possibly be a target for edit-warring. Reply if you need an exact explanation.

    • Great! We can probably lock it after you finish up the "controls" section. I can also do a proofread of the article before it goes on lock if you want. 

      Oh, I also fixed an issue where the content menu has "Andriod and IOS" as it's own category instead of a subsection of "controls".

    • OK, I no longer think locking it is needed.

  • The article "Hit me one more time" is empty, with only the text "Write the first paragraph of your page here.", etc. appearing.

    • I guess it's about a mission in the 3D version of Gangstar Rio.
