User talk:Gboyers/archive8/header

What's going on with {{Navbox}}?

All templates linked there (like {{Vehicles}}, {{Weapons}}, {{Broker neighborhoods}}) show up with messed up template links (the "v • d • e" links on the upper left corner), yet that template hadn't been changed for months (Did a wiki software change cause this?). This needs to be looked into ASAP. - ZS 04:53, 15 August 2011 (BST)

Looks better now. Saw the nifty revision UI too. Good work. - ZS 06:02, 15 August 2011 (BST)
It looks like {{Navbox}} will still show a "Error: No name provided" line if it's displayed together with other navigation boxes though (Infernus#See also). - ZS 06:17, 15 August 2011 (BST)

Thanks and question

Thanks for making me trusted. However, a random notice, the list of trusted users doesn't seem very trustworthy. If I go to , I only get a list of 5 people? I can't help but think there should be more people on that list. Amongst others, all the admins are missing from it. Not a huge thing and maybe it's just me but thought I'd ask you anyway. --Andreaz1 13:04, 17 August 2011 (BST)

Yeah, that explains everything. I had a look in the User Rights Log and couldn't understand why the list was missing people that seemingly should have been on it. Now I understand though, thanks! --Andreaz1 13:26, 17 August 2011 (BST)

Change Username

Hi Gboyers, can you change my username to Samsonius.--Mizu (talk) 00:07, 21 August 2011 (BST)

On second thought nevermind, sorry to bother you.--Mizu (talk) 21:21, 21 August 2011 (BST)
Okay, false alarm I didn't want to change it because of another user at Wikia has the same username, I am 100% sure I want it change my username into Salubri.--Mizu (talk) 07:20, 28 August 2011 (BST)


Hi Gboyers, I was wondering what kind of skin the Grand Theft Wiki has?--Mizu (talk) 00:46, 24 August 2011 (BST)


Earlier tonight, I made the catergory Category:LCPD, but when I added it to articles, only 1 of them showed up. Any way to fix this? Bacon777 11:48, 24 August 2011 (BST)

Image Problem

Hi Gboyers, do you know why the image type bmp. is illegal here?--Mizu (talk) 03:00, 27 August 2011 (BST)

I've been having problems with my laptop, every images I saved ends up a .BMP, and how do I convert it into PNG/JPG/SVG?--Mizu (talk) 03:02, 29 August 2011 (BST)
Thanks a bunch :),--Mizu (talk) 14:58, 29 August 2011 (BST)

Hey Gboyers, this sever you payed for, how much does it cost?--Mizu (talk) 04:38, 30 August 2011 (BST)

I see, just curious, knowing the money I was trying to create a Wiki just like this one.--Mizu (talk) 04:48, 30 August 2011 (BST)


Those accounts were created in order for me to contact you when I accidently change the skin of the Grand Theft Wiki in my preference.--Mizu (talk) 05:06, 30 August 2011 (BST)

Sorry about those accounts.--Mizu (talk) 05:36, 30 August 2011 (BST)


"In my opinion, their rules are rubbish and the staff are pretty awful", how are the rules of the GTA Wiki rubbish, we prefer to have a source for info that were not sure about, that makes sense, and the staff aren't awful at all. If you want a user like Greg then fine but I think you should do a little more research on him and why he was really blocked. The Tom 17:19, 30 August 2011 (BST)

The Tom

What is with him? Sticking his nose where it isn't wanted? I know we probably have a clash of personalities, but I can live with that, he scared someone's gonna bring him to task? Shouldn't be a moderator if that's his attitude, Gboyers thank you for your reply to me also, could you kindly tell The Tom to go and make love to himself and not put his nastiness where it's not wanted, him, Dan the Man 1983 and McJeff, they are like rats, I don't need them looking into me like I'm some sort of Ameba! It's internet bullying! Gregallz5

Sorry force of habit, been on their site too long, I got it from them, I thought that their website was this one with a different name, didn't know that they copied and pasted it, wow they were intelligent init?! Gregallz

What's their page and what's it all about and what's the beef between this one and the other one? Gregallz5

Could you kindly please tell The Tom that Maria Hickment and I share a flat with each other and have two lap tops so of course we're gonna have the same IP and not make me sound like someone with an altered ego! Gregallz5 22:46, 1 September 2011 (BST)

Yeah all I said was that I'm a book writer, I ghost wrote the last two Martina Cole books and the Keeping It Real book for Grace Dent's Diary of a Chav series, if it pleases or offends him, he'd just have to either A) get over it or B) not like that. Gregallz5 12:16, 2 September 2011 (BST)


Hey Gboyers. I probably should have introduced myself sooner, for obvious reasons... you probably know who I am, I'm a bureaucrat on the other GTAWikia. Talking to you and trying to come to some sort of understanding is something I've been meaning to do for a while but kept putting off because I know a lot of people here are angry at wikia and have a low opinion of the staff on my "imposter wiki".

First, much more so than when I started on that other wiki as an administrator, I understand and sympathize with your guys take on it. It's just that when your users make vandalism runs over on the other place, like User:Tommy-Vercetti did here it gets you into a fight mentality. I also think it's a little much to call all the staff over on the other place awful. WikisEditor was desysopped for the plagiarism and I've been strictly watching to make sure GTAWikia editors don't copy info from Grand Theft Wiki. as 4 the computance role u dnt have users over here whu writ liek this and get basic facts rong all tha tyme. I mean, I've seen you mention how much you hate that rule regularly, but we don't go around abusing it. In fact we've yet to block anyone for incompetence, it's just a safeguard against truly awful editors. Wikipedia itself sometimes bans editors due to competence, so it's not like it's a rule that we and only we have.

Anyway I came here today because of the way Gregallz5 has been causing trouble over here, thought I'd tell you the full story of what happened with him since he and Tom didn't. On the Gregallz5 account he got two warnings for incivility, then a three day block for calling someone a "stupid prick" in an edit summary. He immediately made a new account, GBTheWriter, and admitted it was him on its user page and "slagged off" the staff who blocked him, which I indefinitely blocked and extended the block on Gregallz5 to 2 weeks for block evasion. He then made a third account, TheRealLondonDeal doing the same thing he did on the second, which caused us to block Gregallz5 indefinitely. He made the Maria account, Tom asked for a checkuser from Wikia's staff and it came back positive, then it was blocked too.

So that's about it. You obviously don't have to agree with my opinions on running a wiki or my decision to edit the Wikia-hosted GTA Wiki, but I would ask you to please get my side on things before just writing me off as "awful". McJeff 21:27, 2 September 2011 (BST)


Hi Gboyers, I just thought I'd let you know that I've resigned as Bureaucrat of the GTA Wiki, I doubt you'll care too much but I thought I'd let you know just in case you needed to contact the GTA Wiki about something in the future. The Tom 23:57, 2 September 2011 (BST)

Couple things

First I made a page on GTA Wikia called GTA Wikia: Community split. I know you guys feel that the Wikia version is illegitimate and even illegal and so it's inadequate, but it's a long shot fairer than pretending nothing happened. I tried to represent your views as fairly and neutrally on that page as I could.

As for MrLanceVanceDance, he did leave two actual links to the Wikia website, on the talk pages of Bunnyjoke and Crescendospectredragon (the two recently desysopped users) apologizing for their alleged mistreatment and asking them to come over here. Bunnyjoke's debatable I suppose, the thought that C-dragon was mistreated is laughable since he never contributed and claimed it was because there was "nothing for him to do". However I disagree that not including a link makes what he did not spam, anyway. McJeff 20:12, 3 September 2011 (BST)

Left you a response on my talk page since probably multiple people are going to want to participate in that conversation and switching pages to follow a long conversation can get confusing. McJeff 05:07, 4 September 2011 (BST)
