Hi, welcome to Grand Theft Wiki! Thanks for your edit to the Talk:Luis Fernando Lopez page.

Please leave a message on my talk page if I can help with anything! -- ZS (Talk) 23:03, February 17, 2010

Deleting Work

Hey. I can see you have an issue with User:A-Dust (who is an admin) "deleting people's hard work". Could you clarify what you mean, or provide an example? You can see all of the articles he has deleted here. The only relevant one I can see is where he deleted Talk:Knife, because that is where you talk about the article (not discuss how good the weapon is). Discussions about gameplay should go in the Forum. If there's something else you have a problem with, please let me know so that we can either correct it, explain why we do it that way, or change our policies to be more reasonable. That's what you can do here that you can't do at Wikipedia. Gboyers talk 00:48, February 23, 2010 (UTC)

Well, that page you just linked me to is a mild example, but the only examples I remember are the deletion of Yusuf Amir's talk page. Judging by his opinion on GTA IV, I think he only deletes these pages because he hates the game a lot, but that's a pretty silly thing to assume. Still, it is pretty annoying reading ur email to find out that this guy has deleted things you do.--FawkesGamer360 00:53, February 23, 2010 (UTC)

I can understand how that's annoying (it happens to me on other sites, especially wikipedia); but if you really disagree about something, talk to us and we can figure out what the best thing to do is. I can't promise we'll always restore the work, but at least we can make sure it's fair and that everyone is treated the same. I know A-Dust wants to keep the "fluff" out of this wiki, and keep it to relevant, factual information; and I know some people disagree (like I'm more of an inclusionist than him) - but we arrive at a good balance usually. I don't think it's because he hates the game, but perhaps he doesn't agree on the significance of some things. I can see that Talk:Yusuf Amir was deleted, but "I want his fucking house" isn't really discussing the article, and I'm not sure that counts as deleting your "hard work" ;) Let me know if you have any questions.

Yea well if you notice on other wikis most talk pages begin with small cheeky or innapropriate comments that eventually lead on to a humorous conversation. I'll admit that wasn't hard work, but he hasn't deleted any of my HARD work. He just simply likes to delete a lot of other people's hard work. If you look at his talk page, a lot of people seem to hate him.--FawkesGamer360 01:14, February 23, 2010 (UTC)
