Hi NFG, me and Smashbro8 were thinking of applying a lockdown on this Wiki so only registered users could edit stuff. You can see that recently a large number of unregistered users vandalized the wikia, adding "RIFAT IS GAY" (btw I don't have any goddamn idea of what it means) everywhere on every page they could.
Both me and Smash are activer users of the GTA Wiki, where you cannot edit any stuff without using a Wikia account. And I notice that on the GTA Wiki vandlism is rather rare. And if anyone does something wrongs, he gets a warning immediately.
Hi NinjaFatGuy, would you mind taking a look at the Wi-Fi hotspots page? As mentioned in the talk page there, the term is never used in the game. Also the Access Point page, while not great, refers to the same thing, but reads better.
Similarly, the Access Switch page is a duplicate of the Bridge Control page. I don't think I've ever heard or seen the term "Access Switch" used in-game.
NinjaFatGuy, I’m requesting that you protect my information about Aiden Pearce’s Personality Paragraph that I published from being edited or deleted because I feel that this is important information that shouldn't be removed ... since I also added a citation link to where I got this information. It was on another Watch Dogs Wikia called: Neoseeker. Please reply back to me A.S.A.P.
Sorry, but I can't protect the page solely because you want your edit to be protected. As a wiki, people are able to change it as they please. If your information gets removed for no reason, feel free to undo it, but don't start an edit war. Thank you.
I'm reaching out today to see if it's okay if we set up a "Parent Page" on the Watch Dogs Wiki. Also, if you’re okay with it, do you and the other admins have any interest in helping us fill it out?
Here is a Parent Page example from The Grand Theft Auto Wiki to give you an idea of what the page entails. Essentially, it's a guide to help parents figure out if a game series is appropriate for their child. We try and put in a little more detail than just the ESRB rating, and tap into actual players who know how the game works, what the online experience is like, etc.
Please let me know if you have any questions about any of this. We’re planning on setting up the pages over the next week or so, so I hope to hear back from you before then. Thanks!
Yah that's the idea Sirius, since you all have deep experience with the game we figure you're more able to show the big picture than a brief ESRB rating. I went ahead and imported the template and started the page, so feel free add to it whenever you guys get a chance. Let me know if you need any help filling it out!
Alough, I think parents needs to be redirected to test pages. Websites like IGN, and stuff that offers a gamer's perspective of the game, a point of view from someone who understand the whole thing.
Being neutral is good, but explaining something in a neutral way to someone who does not know anything about the game isn't a good idea I think. Better have parents to see what a video game is trough a gamer's eyes so they can better understand the logic, the saif violence, gambling etc...
For me, these are the best source of information about a game. Both for gamers and non gamers.
I mean, when folks wanna get a new cell phone, or a new camera, or dine out, they read on-line reviews to find out more about it from different points of view. But for some reason, when it comes to video games, they look at the violence and drugs sticker or some summed up description and go "Woa woa woa, not for my child, even if he's 20 years old!"
I've noticed the lack of pages on Vehicle Variations, such as gang editions or taxis. Also, I have been told that the pages on the boats were removed due to the lack of information on them. I have all their names and statistics from the sources themselves and would like a level of carte blanche to go about creating these pages.
Dear NFG, I've uploaded photos of all the weapons in Watch_Dogs. I will shortly begin uploading photos of all the cars. These photos are all from the Official W_D eGuide and as such they are all of the highest quality. I have also begun editing all the weapon and car statistics.
