Mistreatment causes Grand Theft Wiki to leave Wikia
The new mandatory wikia design and rules, which forbid customisation and will cause many problems throughout all wikis, has prompted many users and wikis, including Grand Theft Wiki to leave Wikia.


New Staff Member
After overwhelming support, User:Gta-mysteries has been promoted to Administrator. Congratulations! If you'd like to nominate someone else to be staff, you can do that here.

The second phase of the Cleanup Project is underway. This project allows users to work on the parts of the wiki that urgently need their help. If you want to help out, just go to that page and pick a task you can do, sign your name next to it, and get underway. The staff are always here to help if you get stuck.


Old News

Grand Theft Wiki on Gamespot

Grand Theft Wiki has now been integrated into Gamespot and GameFAQs. Visiting the Wiki tab on the GTA IV pages shows our Featured Articles, most popular pages and recently edited pages, all linking to a special Gamespot-Themed mirror of the site.


Grand Theft Wiki IRC

Grand Theft Wiki now has its own IRC channel: #gtawiki on irc.wikia.com. See Project:IRC for more info. Come and have a chat.

Wikia Merge

Grand Theft Wiki has merged with en.gta.wikia.com to create Grand Theft Wiki at Wikia. Accessible from both domains, the merged wiki has all the content (including images) from both wikis. All staff members have remained as staff. See Project:Merge for details.

Purchase Proposal

Further to previous discussions about merging Grand Theft Wiki with en.gta.wiki.com, staff at Wikia have suggested the possibility of Wikia purchasing Grand Theft Wiki. Discuss this proposal and watch out for new developments at Talk:Community Portal.

New Staff System

Grand Theft Wiki has a brand new Staff system to replace the old system of Sysops and Bureaucrats. There are now three staff positions: Moderator, Administrator and Manager.
We also have two new members of Staff to go with that - User:George and User:Chief of Staff are now both Moderators. Congratulations.
