Earlier this month a bot came on and edited some of my articles, After that no more YouTube videos will play as they redirect to a file or just don't show up, I was wondering if there was any way to fix it?
I wondered, to make my own content, does it have to be a fan made pretend game? I would like to write some GTA stuff, but I kinda don't want to invent a whole game, because it isn't real. Can it just be a regular story, or is it only allowed to be fan made games?
You don't have to have a project, you can make standalone content related to or based in the GTA Universe. Projects or 'games' are used as hubs and talking points to bring a story and narrative together.
If you want, you can do a simple one-off plot article or a series through a project is recommended for contiunitey, guidance, and for progression.
Sorry to bug you again. One last thing. I'm going to make the page for the strangers and freaks strand I wrote. What category would I put them under? They are for now a stand alone strangers and freaks strand. I'll sub in random pedestrians for Micheal,Trevor and Franklin.
I'm interested in joining the wiki, and maybe adding some fanon eventually.
For my character pictures, I use snap shots from my Sims games to create their appearance. I don't have GTA Online or any way of using it, so I can't make those great pictures everyone has on here. Is it okay to use my sims pictures? I don't want to just upload them and break rules or policies.
I have another question, not related to images, but I didn't want to swamp you with loads of seperate message threads.
I saw on the forum that is against the wiki's policy to use canon characters in any fanon content. Why is that?
I ask because, for one of my characters that I'm trying to work on, I wrote some fun little Strangers and Freaks missions, basically testing her personality in that setting, and I thought that would be fun if she arranged a few little mini jobs for Franklin, Trevor and Michael. Obviously there is nothing game breaking there, and it wouldn't change anything from the game plot if we pretended this happened, but I wondered if that would break wiki policies? I guess I could change those characters to random mooks if there was a rule break there, and mostly lose nothing from the content.
Using canon characters is a huge debate here on this wikia but we restrict their use so that players can add to the universe without changing the universe. It encourages originality and creativity instead of relying on existing canon. Also when it was allowed we had 20+ projects about Trevor killing CJ and similar erroneous scenarios.
Ah, I see. No danger of that happening in any of my content. I just don't like making loads and loads of characters, most of which I'll probably never use again. Sometimes using canon characters that don't get much screen time or character development is easier, or writing the more better known ones, but nothing canon breaking. Like in my scenes, the trio literally come away from most of the strangers/freaks scenes with nothing but a wanted level on their head.
Makes sense though. If people are going to write canon characters going on a death brawl, then it's obviously a bit sketchy. I mean, yes, Trevor did kill Johnny K, but that doesn't mean all protagonists should murder each other.
I see my first project ever has returned to the site - Playboy Life. It's been gone for a while due to rule violations.
That is why I'd like to ask for a permission to completely revamp the project. Write a better story, make it more grounded, remove useless characters. Make it more about Playboy and Dwayne and minimize my own shitty canon things like how Pegorino's son killed himself.
That requires removing all the current mission articles. A Complete makeover. Redux. For old times sake. Playboy Life was one of the first completed projects on this Wiki. It deserves better.
