How are [[Trenton]] and [[Portland View]] redirected here? Please explain. I'm kind of annoyed that I don't get any information about these two districts in [[Portland|Portland Island]]. Thank you. [[User:Masterpogihaha|Masterpogihaha]] 14:14, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

This makes so much sense. I can't believe I haven't thought of that before. The only exception was GTA 2 on the Dreamcast.--'''[[User:Spaceeinstein|spaceeinstein]]''' 02:05, 6 November 2011 (GMT)

Spliting Aritcle

With Grand Theft Auto IV being set in a new version of Liberty City, do you think it would be a good idea to have three articles based on the city? One for the GTA1 rendition, one for the GTA 3 era city and then one for the GTA IV era. What do you think? A-Dust 20:15, 2 April 2007 (UTC)

Ahh, I forgot to comment on this... my apology for belated comment on this... but regardless, I'm inclined to agree with your proposal. I believe each renditions, even an original Grand Theft Auto rendition, would surely have enough to make for good-sized article or however we call that. But I would also recommend to have this page retains summaries for each of those rendition with links to full article on them instead of simply turning it into a disambiguation page. Otherwise, I'm all for it. --Legion 05:41, 5 April 2007 (UTC)

Link in the way

Shouldnt that link to wikipedia New York just say New York City and have the Wikipedia bit hidden in the background, it doesn't read right the way it is

'Tis fixed! Check the code...if you see anything like that, the trick is to add what you want to appear in the link after a "|", and the link itself before it. For example, I would point to my talk page thusly, so it's not cumbersome within text, as it would be if I simply included just the link, like this: User talk:Eganio. To do that, I used the following code:
[[User talk:Eganio|my talk page]]

I didn't have this page watched so I didn't see your reply. Yes, that post was early on in my wiki experience, I learnt how to do that a long time ago. LOL!Biggest GTA Fan EverTalk 06:29, 12 September 2008 (UTC)

Disambig

I was thinking that this page could be given a disambig tag. My reasoning is because most of the time we would want to direct links past here not link to here (a mistake I see too often). If it was a disambig, those pages could be seen here so that users can fix the problem easily. On occasions, we would link here, to show all the renditions (like that, say on the GTA IV Liberty City page), However, usually we would want to direct past it, (eg. Linking Algonquin to Liberty City in GTA IV where it belongs). Thoughts? Biggest GTA Fan EverTalk 07:09, 25 September 2008 (UTC)

Redirections

How are Trenton and Portland View redirected here? Please explain. I'm kind of annoyed that I don't get any information about these two districts in Portland Island. Thank you. Masterpogihaha 14:14, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

R*'s reasoning on reusing the name

We've always tended to begin GTA on any platform in Liberty City and could not see any reason to change for this game!
