Hey man. I'm in kind of hibernating. I'm checking in from time to time to see if anything's on here on the wiki. I resigned my position as Patroller as I don't feel I'll be able to focus on wiki too much. Bunch of shit has happened in my private life recently - I gotta take a break, I really do.

Sad to see you resign. I've been inactive lately but keeping an eye on the editing. I hope to see you back as patroller soon.
That's what I've suspected. Ok, I'll tell you everything I know.
That Facebook post was made by some fella called Ivan Đakić, son of the one of the Croatian Parliamentary Representatives and president of HVIDRA, one of the veterans' organizations.
In the post he put a picture of a person with ustaša markings holding a head of person with chetnik markings, just below the inscription 'Svim "prijateljima" srbićima sretan božić' (Eng. 'To all little serb "friends" merry christmas'). Further analyzing the image, it seems it was the NDH (Independent State of Croatia at the time) officer Vjekoslav 'Maks' Luburić, and the head he's holding belongs to Pavle Đurišić, leader of Montenegrin chetniks. Both are considered war criminals.
Now about the reactions. It was immediately followed by convicting reactions from all sides; the Croatian Government, the father of the young man, the self-proclaimed leader of Serbs in Croatia - Milorad Pupovac, who actually represents himself, not his folk, and all the rest I can't mention. Against the young man, they say, disciplinary proceedings in court are being initiated for hate speech.
I'm personally very horrified that man made such as post on Orthodox Christmas. I condemn such behavior, no matter what sided committed it! I have friends Serbs, with whom I've never had problems conversating or other, even if we disagreed over something. I have certain opinions about everything I mentioned here, but I'll stick close to your question, which has now been answered.
Sorry it's so extensive, but I like to be detailed.

Yeah. I like to keep myself informed and make sure information I have is correct, so I checked multiple sources and pages to see if there's any differences, and on one they provided that more detailed analysis, with some other pictures and such, so I can definitely confirm those are the same persons. Too much similarities to decline.
Anything else you wanna know, man?
And by the way, thanks for assisting me in that thread of mine which rose to a very uncomfortable arguing with Mantiix. He's not a bad wiki man, but I strongly believe he has wrong perception when it comes to politics. I don't have to say anything, the events in the upcoming months will speak for themselves. People hate the truth, but luckily truth doesn't give a shit. :)
The thing about politics, is that everyone is biased in some way or another. Everyone has different perceptions and visions which of course lead to arguments. Thankfully you two are reasonable, arguments like that usually lead to complete chaos here.
I know, man. I don't know if there is need, but I'll say it anyway. Anyone, and I mean ANYONE, can talk with me about any topic, whether it's game-related, personal, this wiki-related or any other, no matter how boring, painful or maybe even frustrating it may be.
Before this thread, I posted a message on my own wall called "Public Service Announcement". In it, I explained why I changed my profile picture (you can see it in the screenshot, missing the part in which I explained what german writting inside says; "I'm against all violence. For solidarity and democracy!"), which was followed by a very aggressive reaction from Mantiix. It reached the point at which he accused me of being a Nazi. Now thinking about it, even though I believe Mant deserved a sanction for it, I never requested it, to avoid deepening the conflict. He erased the thread after I asked him what he bases his accusation on ("did I promote Nazi symbols?" and such). I think it clearly shows a lack of arguments.
If someone else published something I don't like or I am opposed to, I would either ignore it, or even if I decide to involve myself in a discussion, it'd be on a human level (level that could only slightly cross the limits of decency).
So, people, if you wanna talk, don't bother to knock on the door.

Now I hope I won't regret saying I'm accepting your apology. You have your opinion about the theme I opened 'afore and I respect it, although, like I said, I think you should be more, let's say, open-hearted. I didn't mean to offend anyone with that post of mine and I apologize if I did. It's what I felt was a right thing. But still, I'd like to hear from you how you comment the fact in that post of mine about that man being beaten up almost to death, even though its someone you're not fond of. In my case, if it was someone from the 'left side', I'd be horrified of such behavior. Deserves condemnation in every case.
Mant, you're still the kingpin of this wiki and I sincerely wish you to remain for as long as possible. I had no pretensions for position, but you still offered me one when the wiki was lacking Staff members, if I remember correctly. I knew and know that this isn't a wiki about politics, but I just felt the need to share what I thought with others. I'll stop here now.
I leave you now with saying: Ratna sjekira je zakopana (croatian version of "The hatchet has been buried").
Hey, our wiki is in need of active staff and because no one will likely apply for patroller rights soon, I looked at random users activity and wanted to choose some active and trustworthy editors that could easily handle the position. I think you may fit in the position fairly well. Do you want to receive patroller rights?
With patroller rights you could rollback edits that are bad/disruptive, delete forum posts and kick/ban users from the chat.
That is an exception, so don't worry about your edit count.
Thanks Mant, without GTA Myths Wiki, my YouTube channel couldn't rise like now (although I'm not active much since I have to concentrate on studying). I'll help this Wiki as much as possible I can In my opinion, DarkMythHunter's second proof about The Woods Creature is suit this, I think everyone knows Dark is a trustworthy myth hunter, as a patroller, I suggest using his proof. I don't know how others think
Anyway, I suggest changing some information in the Ring Girl page: "The origins of the Ring Girl began with an upload of a video on YouTube in 2006, featuring CJ in his living room and looking around when a silhouette of a girl appears from the television in the corner and disappears a second later. Other than this video, there was no other proof that the mysterious girl existed in the game. It is believed that the Ring Girl was simply a pedestrian spawn glitch." At first, I wasn't trust by anyone, just because when I joined this Wiki for the first time, I asked too much so may some people annoyed and they didn't trust me. You guys can watch DaviDustin's video to see (DaviDustin is also a hard-working and trustworthy myth hunter). Before watching his video, I had already believed that the picture was just a result of Photoshop not glitch His video: https://youtu.be/Ldb27byzzwk (he explained about the Ghost Girl at 14:25) P/s: I think it's suitable time to ask: Looks like everyone really interested in ulown00b, isn't it? Most of his videos are really nonsense, especially about Cesar is the betrayer and Smoke is an Aztecas but his videos still be used as Video Investigation, what??? There are lots of trustworthy myth hunters, DarkMythHunter, DaviDustin, TheseMyths, etc. Why don't you use their videos instead?
