Grand Theft Wiki talk:Staff

Please use this page to discuss the staff list and user access levels in general. To discuss becoming staff, see Grand Theft Wiki:Promotion


I see you've started customising Special:Listusers based on this page. Would you like me to finish doing so? (If so, please leave a message on my talk page) -- Manticore (talk) 03:16, 2 March 2008 (UTC)

Patroller with move permission?

Does the Patroller rank have the ability to move pages? If not, what do you staff think of the idea of granting the rank that privelige? I know of some wikis that allow ordinary users the ability to move pages (for better or worse), and it seems appropriate that a rank of intermediate, trusted user like patroller be granted the ability. I frequently come across pages that are obviously misnamed (Like Dragon Raign), and since there's no way to mark things as needing to be moved besides mentioning it on the talk page and hoping someone sees it, I'm sure patrollers could be trusted with the ability and would find it useful. --MattyDienhoff 20:09, 8 January 2009 (UTC)

To my knowledge Patrollers do not have that ability, although I see no reason why they shouldn't. As to become a patroller, they must have first proven to be reliable members. At the moment, however, the only way is to make a note on the talk page and hope that either Gboyers, Biggest gta fan ever or myself see the request. You could also contact one of us on our talk pages, which will flag up when we next visit the site. A-Dust 20:18, 8 January 2009 (UTC)
I agree - they should have that ability. However, Wikia have taken over control of the "powers" of each user group, and which user groups exist. I can only put someone into the following groups: Rollback (having the quick-revert ability), Admin (sysop) or Manager (bureaucrat). I have spoken with Wikia staff to try to get something set up. I still think having 3 levels of staff is reasonable, and is the best way of handling our wiki. I'll keep you informed. Gboyers talk 20:35, 8 January 2009 (UTC)

New Staff

I've just edited the Staff page and moved all the moderators to the inactive staff list, as none of them have edited in the past month. So we may want to take on more staff at this stage. A-Dust 01:46, December 2, 2009 (UTC)


Just wondering whether Gta-mysteries is currently a member of staff? The badge accompanies his edits but they are also flagged as needing patrolling. A-Dust 21:49, 7 November 2010 (UTC)

Gta-mysteries does not currently have admin rights due to this, but perhaps he should be marked as trusted so that his edits are automatically marked as patrolled? JFletcherTalk (formerly User:Biggest gta fan ever) 22:02, 7 November 2010 (UTC)
His edits are currently not patrolled for exactly that reason - we want to be sure the virus (or whatever) has gone before we give those rights back. I'll check through his edits, make sure it's all okay, and re-promote as necessary. We also now have a spam filter which stops anyone saving a page with a script in.
