An Edit summary is a brief explanation to an edit made on a page on Grand Theft Wiki. When editing a page, there is a small text entry above the edit tools named 'edit summary' allowing you to type your summary in. Edit summaries are useful for users to have a brief idea of what the edit consisted of and why it was made.

Where summaries appear

The edit summary appears as faint italics in the following places:

  • Page history – list of revisions to the page you have edited
  • User contributions – list of all your edits since your registration
  • Watchlist– list of recent changes to your selected watched pages (logged-in users only)
  • diff page – shows the difference between two edits
  • Recent changes – list of all recent edits on the whole of Grand Theft Wiki
