what happend to the pictures

I am preparing for a mass move of images to a new link. For this, I'm updating all character articles so that when I move the images, they will show up once again. The images will return when the files have been moved to their file name. A-Dust 16:05, January 22, 2010 (UTC)

okay now i understand

Merging the splits, again

It's hard to see how individual articles for each of these protagonist would be helpful. Besides misleading people into believing that there is more information in those sub-pages (and every one of these pages simply consists of "xxx is a character from Grand Theft Auto 1 who can be chosen as a protagonist by the player" followed by brief trivia duplicated from this page), they needlessly inflate the number of articles that need to be maintained. There is simply no practical use to split when 1) The amount of information in this page isn't long enough to justify a split, and 2) there is little to no further information on these characters besides being selectable player characters; there is no way these sub-pages can be expanded any further and will only continue to remain as stubs.

I recalled turning those pages into redirects for the above reason a couple of years back, but they were all restored for an unspecified reason. - ZS (talk) 17:48, 11 November 2011 (UTC)

I've always thought that anything about the series should have its own article, even if the articles are short, simply because the subject of the wiki is the GTA series. The articles need little attention being a game before GTA III, and articles should be maintained by staff when an edit is made by another user, so that shouldn't be a problem anyway. That's always been my opinion. A-Dust 10:33, 20 November 2011 (UTC)
