Hey El Shendee, I noticed you expanded the GTA2 section by adding text and images from WikiGTA. However, WikiGTA is not part of the GTA Wikia, and therefor, you can't just use everything you find on that site at GTA Wikia. Using copyrighted content of other sites is prohibited by the policy of this site. The images of the GTA2 cars are just ripped from the files with a STY editor, so I won't expect you to remove those, but the maps were made entirely by me. I kindly ask you to remove those maps and translated text and stop using our content. Thanks in advance, Lantyz, WikiGTA crew 21:34, 29 December 2007 (UTC)

I noticed there were very few information about my favoutire GTA, Grand Theft Auto 2, so I decided to make that section the more accurate possible. I tried to put all information I could by myself, but when I didn't know very well a certain subject or I needed an image I needed another page. It's not easy to find informaion about GTA 2, the only good pages are WikiGTA (hey, you have done a really good work there) and another page in Japanese.
I have no problem in removing those texts and images, and I'm not going to use WikiGTA anymore.
By the way, could you tell me what did you use to make those maps? I want to make a vehicle locations map.
Sorry very much, el shendee 11:07 31 December 2007 (UTC)
No hard feelings, thanks for your cooperation. I reported the images and added a link to this conversation. The best thing to do to improve the site is to just create your own articles. That way you'll be certain you're not accidentally using work of others. And if it's your favourite GTA -as it is mine- you're bound to know quite a deal of it. I made the maps with Paint and the GTA2 Map Editor. I take it you're Dutch too, as you're able to read the Dutch WikiGTA and English doesn't seem to be your native language? If so, I made a tut on making maps here. It's quite a lot of work, but feel free to use it to make your own maps. Be sure to use your own approach, or you'll wind up with the same maps. :-P --Lantyz, WikiGTA crew 17:32, 31 December 2007 (UTC)
