Active Requests

"Options" bar in Chat

I have seen on some chats, that there are "Options" bars. One of examples is The Elder Scrolls Wikia. I have also noticed, that it is not present in our Chat. I think, that it is somehow good idea to implement into GMW's Chat. Vote away. - Indep (talk) 15:58, September 8, 2016 (UTC)



  • What exactly does it do, because if it's not a right lot then I don't see the point in adding it. LS11sVaultBoy (Talk) 16:31, September 8, 2016 (UTC)
  • Pretty sure you're referring to Chat Hacks, and if that's correct, absolutely no, and you'll thank me for it. Basically, chat hacks allows you to customize the preview of chat, colors, etc, adds multiple pm, muli ban, muli kick, chat window clear, etc...all fun and games, but it does cause problems; it causes users joining the chat not to be seen by other users currently in the chat, until both users reload the chat. This is a pain when multiple users are joining, messages may not appear, sometimes Kick doesn't work, and half the time the chat damn right gives do I know? We implemented this on GTA Wiki and I took it down within 2 days because it was causing too many problems. With GTA Myths Wiki having a very active chat (usually), it would quickly cause chaos. It's alright for smaller wikis, i.e. mine, as it hardly ever gets Chat attention, but GTA Myths Wiki would quickly regret it. Monk Talk 17:06, September 8, 2016 (UTC)

Contents on the Main Page

Usually, on some wikias, contents on the main page are common, I think we should have them on the main page. It's easier to navigate, for example here, at my wiki, there are content boxes at the top, we should have "Myths and Legends in GTA SA" "IV", etc.. So leave your votes. --AndreyFD (talk) 17:25, September 6, 2016 (UTC)



  • The wiki's home page is beginning to look a little out of date, so I think this would both modernize it, and make it easier for new users to see where the M+L pages are. LS11sVaultBoy (Talk) 17:25, September 6, 2016 (UTC)
  • It will be cool nice detail to the page, but it also will help new users, as Vault said. - Indep (talk) 18:26, September 6, 2016 (UTC)
  • If you look at the "Portals" section on the Main Page we have links to 19 pages. I think that would be way too many boxes if we were to have that on the Main Page. Boomer8 (Contact) 19:04, September 6, 2016 (UTC)

Inactive Requests

New Modern Staff Banners

Closed as Unsuccessful by LS11sVaultBoy (Talk) 17:25, September 6, 2016 (UTC)

The staff banners look straight out of 2006 and theyre pulled right from gta wiki. Its time for a design update and for us to do our own thing. Ive suggested this before, but this time Ive done all the work. All the new templates are now color coded to match the username color links and they function just the same as the current ones, including the automatic inactive user functions. Ive also already installed the required css templates. They are located here and here so they will need to be protected if this gets votes. - BiggestShip65 15:33, August 30, 2016 (UTC)

All templates are ready to be copied and pasted and will work right away.

The new updated images here, here and here will need to be protected also if this is voted up.

EDIT: Oh yeah and dont worry about Refined appearing just before Message Me, that wont be there if this replaces the existing templates.



  • Totally disregarding this wiki's current color schemes among over stylisation. The current banners are fine, albeit the background color could probably do with a change and the images do really need a rethink. Monk Talk 15:56, August 30, 2016 (UTC)
  • Same as Monk. Mant Talk 15:56, August 30, 2016 (UTC)
  • Just realized there is a mistake somewhere in the templates that extend the box to encompass all a profile pages content. i dont think its gonna to matter anyway BiggestShip65 16:30, August 30, 2016 (UTC)
    • Fixed this little problem and all works fine now. First dumb mistake Ive made in a while. this is why you dont edit at 3am. BiggestShip65 14:46, August 31, 2016 (UTC)
  • I think the style is pretty cool, but like Monk said, it does disregard current color schemes. LS11sVaultBoy (Talk) 16:50, August 30, 2016 (UTC)
  • I'll admit that the color scheme doesn't match, but I like them. Maybe if they had green, white, and black in them, everyone else would vote yes. MHM August 30, 2016
  • I wouldn't mind updating the staff banners but the ones proposed need to be tweaked. The Myths wiki has a black background, so I think a lighter color would be better than stark black for the background of the staff banners as the black on black blends in together. Also I think the Bureaucrat banner should be a little more golden than the one proposed. --Sasquatch101 (talk) 02:11, August 31, 2016 (UTC)
  • I'm only leaning towards Yes because I still think the template has some problems, but those can obviously be solved using a little something called the Edit button. Oh yeah, and watching everyone parrot Monk over the color issue is pretty damn funny, considering we have bright red, prussian blue, and green, which about as far away from the Wiki's color scheme, at least these follow the staff colors. I get it, coming up with your own opinion is hard. In any case, if this doesn't pass, I'd like to see the new images you uploaded get added to the pre-existing templates, becuase they have transparency and are actually, you know, good. ~ Gunshow (T, E) 13:57, August 31, 2016 (UTC)
  • I actually really like this sleek looking template; however I don't think its perfect. Like Sas said, the black background can blend in with the GTA MW's background. Also the patroller and B'crat color seems too similar. So if you can change the background to a dark gray and make the B'crat template more yellow I'll definitely change my vote to yes.

Gunshow, you need an attitude adjustment. Users are allowed to see eye to eye and agree on certain things without getting harassed. That's why we have the comments section pal - to give reasons why this template should/shouldn't be implemented. Don't bully users just because they have a differing opinion than you.

Add Reason to Delete Template - BiggestShip65 07:04, August 27, 2016 (UTC)

Closed as Successful by Boomer8 (Contact) 06:57, September 1, 2016 (UTC)

I've updated the Delete Template with a Reason...field? I don't know the technical term for it but when adding the Delete template to a page, all you have to do to include a reason is use {{Delete|Page is a duplicate}} or whatever reason and the template will display your reason. If you don't include a reason it will simply state, no reason given. If this gets voted down, well, you can just undo my change.



  • This is very good - Indep (talk) 20:03, August 27, 2016 (UTC)
  • Good idea. I like how you were able to still keep the shortened template by using the {{ }}. Keep up the work. Boomer8 (Contact) 20:13, August 27, 2016 (UTC)

New Section on Main Page

Closed as Successful by Mantiix (Contact) 10:59 August 31, 2016 (UTC)

I have to say, that this is originally Indep's idea he came up with earlier. If you look at the main page some spaces are empty when you scroll down to the bottom. So Indep suggested that we should have a section dedicated to user's birthdays. I was thinking of having it headered "Community Birthdays". It would be located right under "Featured Video" and would list every user's birthday that particular month. I think it would be a nice interactive feature on the main page so I'm curious on your thoughts.



  • Like I said I think it would be a good idea. Boomer8 (Contact) 22:12, August 29, 2016 (UTC)
  • I would want it to be approved 4 or 5th of the September, because 6th is too late, BTW Boomer got it very good, but I meant daily another bday - Indep (talk) 14:20, August 30, 2016 (UTC)
    • Okay, Indep, this isn't the way things work - this isn't being implemented specifically for your birthday, and by revealing that you really are desperate for this to be approved before your birthday gives away the fact all you wanted was a banner alerting everyone it was your birthday. Because of that, I'm neutral, as I'm not fully convinced this is a "Indep idea for Myths Wiki". Monk Talk 14:40, August 30, 2016 (UTC)
  • Same as Monk, [1] - --AndreyFD (talk) 15:01, August 30, 2016 (UTC)

My Resignation (Only from MW as a staffer)

Yes, you read that right I am resigning. So, due to huge burden of studies and to avoid more trouble with my actions, I have decided to resign on my own, basically because I do not want to get demoted due to a chat war with a user. As many users have figured out, I was overreacting a lot on chat. With this message and hoping in that everyone can understand this, thank you and goodbye.--007MH MythHunter 007 Talk 007MH 12:09, August 18, 2016 (UTC)


  • We may have not talked much, but it is sad to see you go. Good luck to you anyways. Also, if a DFP had been posted, I would have voted to give another chance, as we all get annoyed sometimes. MHM
  • You were a great user here and I wish you the best. Boomer8 (Contact) 18:38, August 20, 2016 (UTC)
