Page Titles: GTA VC vs GTA Vice City

GTA Vice City will be implemented. Closed by 27pxAli Rocky: VC Myth Hunter 20:36, August 16, 2016 (UTC) So today, I was doing some cleanup on the wiki when I came across the pages (from the top of my head) Alleys, Ghost World, and Marco's Bistro. Now these pages, among others, had a disambig for the game they were in, but it varied from GTA VC and GTA Vice City.

So I am putting this vote up to standardise what type of title formate is used. Those pages I renamed, plus some that I didn't like Downtown (GTA VC), use GTA VC, while others like Car Grave (GTA Vice City) use GTA Vice City. I myself am voting for the latter due to formality, but feel free to make up your mind. ~ Gunshow (T, E) 01:48, August 15, 2016 (UTC)

  • You know me. I love my standardisation. It's something that this wiki has a major lack of and even the best of editors can't seem to handle it, something so simple omitted for the way of myths...myths are more interesting to read with standardisation. BTW gun I recommend you merge the beneath post with this, as there's also LCS, VCS, A, CW and O. It would make sense to have them in the same request :) Monk Talk 04:17, August 15, 2016 (UTC)

Page Titles: GTA SA vs GTA San Andreas vs blank in GTA San Andreas

GTA San Andreas will be implemented. Closed by 27pxAli Rocky: VC Myth Hunter 20:36, August 16, 2016 (UTC)

See the above post, but this time it is for San Andreas myths. This time around we have 3 different options, ranging from (GTA SA), like Abandoned Vehicle (GTA SA), and (GTA San Andreas), like on The Woods Creature (GTA San Andreas). However there is also a third option, pagename in GTA San Andreas, like [[Ghost Ships in GTA San Andreas]], which only makes organizing these pages even worse. So again, take your pick as to which one should become the standard. ~ Gunshow (T, E) 01:48, August 15, 2016 (UTC)

Delete The News Page

Closed as Unsuccessful by 27pxAli Rocky: VC Myth Hunter 20:36, August 16, 2016 (UTC) The news page is as described, the page about news. It's not being updated, and the community messages is the only page about the events of the wiki that is updated. I suggest deleting it and replacing it with community messages.

  • How about instead of deleting something that COULD be useful, we work around the issue and use both as if they were both as accessible as each other? There's no point deleting something that works but was just forgot about. Monk Talk 16:30, August 13, 2016 (UTC)
  • Should I just delete this. MHM 
  • Same as Monk. Being inactive =/= instantly delete it. And oh boy is it funny that the person who created this is asking for a random page to be deleted. --Gunshow (T, E) 16:32, August 13, 2016 (UTC)
    • Irony. Monk Talk 16:57, August 13, 2016 (UTC)
  • The page was, in hindsight, meant to document important milestones for the wiki. I never made it for a daily news source because the Fourm was so hot. Nonetheless, it should be kept as old internal documents from the wiki aren't top priority for deletion. Now that it's "rediscovered" it could be periodically updated by the community concerning important wiki events.. --Sasquatch101 (talk) 03:47, August 14, 2016 (UTC)

Slimline Staff Banners

Closed as Unsuccessful by007MH.png MythHunter 007 Talk 007MH.png 07:03, August 7, 2016 (UTC)

Just stopping by and ive noticed you guys staff banners are ridiculously big and its so unnecessary. i see theyve been based off the ones on the gta wiki (even theirs are oversize) but because of the sergeant insignia it makes the bureaucrat banners gigantic and admins and the rollbacks are just as bad if not worse with the latter being 2 banners.

I use slimline banners on mine (example) so id suggest something like that. You are free to work from mine but i dont have any of those fancy {{if}} tags that automatically place inactive banners on users who arent active (i dont think it's even necessary), so someone would have to do that if you'd want to keep that feature. Just a suggestion, let me know what you think.

NOMINATION OF MythHunter2013 FOR HALL OF FAME INDUCTION

Closed as Successful by Boomer8 (Contact) 23:50, July 30, 2016 (UTC)

Ali Rocky brought to my attention the significant contributions of MythHunter2013 and how he should be acknowledged in the history of the wiki by inducting him into the Hall of Fame. He is credited with the discovery of a handful of myths and countless findings posted in the wiki's fourm. He has since left the wiki after serving as admin for over 2 years. Please take a look at his user page which Ali Rocky recreated to show his accomplishments (he blanked out his original, a practice common after a user leaves the wiki for good). I think we should bestow this honor on him as I think it is well deserved. --Sasquatch101 (talk) 06:32, July 30, 2016 (UTC)

  • Great user and myth hunter. --Sasquatch101 (talk) 06:32, July 30, 2016 (UTC)
  • I remember I used to look upto him in 2013, he inspired me alot back in the days and truly stood with you guys from the start, what a great user. 27pxAli Rocky: VC Myth Hunter 06:35, July 30, 2016 (UTC)
  • MythHunter2013 was an absolutely fantastic editor. His series of videos on YouTube brought the wiki to new heights of popularity, and his magnum opus the Killer Cowboy remains one of the most popular and elusive myths in GTA SA. Even if those 2 don't technically apply to the Wiki, MH13 has made a fantastic impression on myth hunting as a whole. --Gunshow (T, E) 06:36, July 30, 2016 (UTC)

  • I remember when he was on here. He was a pretty good user who was definitely commited to hunting myths in GTA. Definitely deserves recognition. Boomer8 (Contact) 23:22, July 30, 2016 (UTC)


Changing the Wiki's Icon

Closed as Successful by LS11sVaultBoy (Talk) 10:56, July 28, 2016 (UTC)

The green 'g'.

The wiki's current icon, which can be seen next to the page name on the tab at the top of your web browser, is currently an image of Bigfoot. I propose that we change it to a green 'g', one that is the same font as the GTA logos. I feel it looks cooler, and it makes the wiki feel more up to date.

  • The old Sasquatch logo was never so good looking . This one makes the wiki feel more fresh and better. MHM July 27, 2016 (UTC)
  • Absolutely. The green G is still on my tablet for some reason, and I prefer it. Monk Talk 11:50, July 27, 2016 (UTC)
  • I don't like it for a couple reasons: 1.) It looks too similar to the GTA Wiki's icon 2.) I think the Bigfoot pic suits the wiki better and is more recognizable.

    If we are going to change the icon I think we should change it to something more mythy. I personally think this would be a better icon but I'm fine with the bigfoot pic. Boomer8 (Contact) 22:13, July 27, 2016 (UTC)
    • I tried adding the image after converting it, but once it is 16x16px it is extremely hard to make it out. LS11sVaultBoy (Talk) 10:56, July 28, 2016 (UTC)
  • Myths icon.png
    The icon itself is good, but I have some doubts about the G. Like Boomer said, it looks like a recolor of the GTA Wiki's favicon. I would prefer someone like an M, in the same style, for myths. See to the right, I haven't make it an icon though. --Gunshow (T, E)
    • I will try the 'm'. LS11sVaultBoy (Talk) 10:56, July 28, 2016 (UTC)

Reboot Myth Hunting Groups

Closed as Successful by LS11sVaultBoy (Talk) 11:17, July 27, 2016 (UTC)

The Myth Hunting Group is actually one of the better ideas on this Wiki. I know from experience that when myth hunters come together collectively, great things can happen. From the VGPI (if any of you here are old enough to remember!) to the VGMH who's intro was featured on every single video during the early 2010's, to more recently with the Myth Hunter Studios group (Hank, Indep, among others) and myself and Xalbador collaborating, has brought double digit new pages and thousands of megabytes of new content to this wiki in a short time. The problem is, however, that the Myth Hunting Group concept never made it off of the ground fully:

  • The MHG's leaderboard ranks were 90 percent derived from who created the page on the myth, which I shouldn't have to explain why that is a horrible method.
    • When actual discoveries were counted (rarely,) most were jumped on conclusions and stretched truths in an attempt to gain points
  • The actual MHGs themselves had no rules or regulations on them, and basically just served as an extension of the profile freind's list idea, for which you can randomly pick and choose users over petty things, like talking in chat or voting on a request.
    • The MHGs are also unpopular. Despite being a commonly visited page, less than 20 percent of active users (according to the front page) participating in them.

So I am recommending that the Myth Hunting Group concept be "rebooted." It doesn't have to be done over completely like scratch, but having a proper leaderboard and some group regulations so the place doesn't turn into complete anarchy, and I see a bright future ahead for the MHG page. --Gunshow (T, E) 16:49, July 26, 2016 (UTC)

  • I'm still not entirely sure what you are proposing, but I do think that the MHG page does need a revamp. Boomer8 (Contact) 19:58, July 26, 2016 (UTC)
  • I agree, it went cold, basically two months after the creation. This reboot will help it in gaining importance and activity once again. Hope, it works in a long run. 27pxAli Rocky: VC Myth Hunter 00:46, July 27, 2016 (UTC)

Ability to Rename Files for Patrollers

Closed as Successful by LS11sVaultBoy (Talk) 11:17, July 27, 2016 (UTC)

Heyo folks. It was literally 2 minutes ago I discovered that Patrollers are not able to rename files, but are allowed to rename pages. I personally think we should be given renaming files abilities, as one of my personal projects is to cleanup files on this wiki.

PS: These rights cannot be explicitly given by bureaucrats (unless you want Patrollers to be able to Delete and Protect pages too), thus a member of Wikia Staff will have to do it - If the vote goes through as successful, a Bureaucrat will have to ask Wikia Staff via email to give renaming rights.

  • I just assumed patrollers had this ability by default, and this is a much better solution than just uploading duplicate photos. --Gunshow (T, E)
  • I suppose this is an alright idea since Patrollers already have the rights to rename pages. Boomer8 (Contact) 19:58, July 26, 2016 (UTC)


Change lock on locked pages to Autoconfirmed

Closed as Successful by LS11sVaultBoy (Talk) 11:38, July 25, 2016 (UTC)

A lot of the most popular articles on the wiki (think Bigfoot, Leatherface, Myths, and so on,) are locked so that only administrators can edit them. In fact, many of these locked pages have not been edited in months, or even years and it is really starting to show as newer, smaller myths are blowing them out of the water in terms of article quality. So I am recommending that these pages be changed to be locked to Autoconfirmed only. This means that most users can still edit the page, but bad edits will not happen because only the most committed vandals will have access to the page.--Gunshow (T, E) 10:32, July 25, 2016 (UTC)
