If Grand Theft Wiki does not have an article about a certain relevant topic, you may create one.

Before you create a page

There are a couple of steps you need to take before you make a new page:

Make sure the article does not exist

  • Search for it at Special:Search or use the search box.
  • Try alternative spellings, including British and American English, and with/without punctuation
  • Check relevant pages to see if there is a link
  • Check relevant categories to see if you can find the page
  • Make sure the content of the article (eg a Character) is not already listed as part of another page (eg Characters in GTA III)

Make sure we require a new article

  • Make sure the topic is relevant - check existing pages and categories to see if we want articles about it
  • If the information is already on an existing page, then there is no reason to duplicate it unless it needs a lot more space to itself
  • If you can split an existing article into two (or more) good-sized articles, then go ahead


If you aren't sure: Ask
