Re: GTA Wiki

In reply to GTA Wiki vs Grand Theft Wiki

Please could you show me the red links and missing images you refer to? When we moved from Wikia, we were unable to copy over all of the images; so many of these have to be done by hand (download from gta.wikia, save to your pc, upload here with same name). The image pages exist but not the image files themselves. Most of these have been done, but I'm aware that there are some still missing. If you know of some specific or important ones that are missing, let me know and I'll see if we can get these fixed.

As for red links, we shouldn't have many of these. All pages were moved across; although we deleted some unnecessary/spam ones. There of course will be some red links on the wiki, which are just normal Wanted Pages, but if there are any important ones missing, please let me know! Thanks - Gboyers 19:51, 5 May 2011 (BST)

(sorry for interrupting) The red links at the bottom of articles were interwiki links, which back on Wikia, linked to the same article on other language sites. As GTW is currently unavailable in other languages, these links became broken. However, that should now be fixed.
As for images, as Gboyers has said, not all images were successfully copied over in the move, and we could use all the help that we can get to finish the job. To fix this, simply click the red link, which should take you to an upload form. Copy the last part of the URL, after DestFile= (which should be the name of the image), open a new tab and type and then paste in the last part (so for this image, which I just did, it would be Once you're on that page, click the image to go the the full resolution version, and save it to your computer (right click on the image, and choose something along the lines of Save image as, depending on your browser). Then go back to the upload form in the other tab, and choose the file from your computer. Then, without filling in any of the other information, scroll down, click the check box for Ignore any warnings (the warning would be that the file description page already exists), and hit upload. I know that sounds like alot of work, but that's just because I did I really bad job of explaining it =] -it's really quite easy.
You mentioned that Wikia's copy still gets alot of traffic. I strongly believe that this is the legitimate copy of GTW, and that it's also the higher quality version. However, as most people don't know we moved, we need all the help we can get to make sure that everyone comes here instead of staying at Wikia, and I would be very happy to see you remain a part of our community!
