What's on your mind?
Hello again, it's been a while since I'm updating this policy/rule, since I am quite to busy for a while and cannot monitor all current activities in this wiki.
The original link of this policy: https://gtafanon.fandom.com/f/p/4400000000000002069
The problem of the current classification rule is the confusion, the "grey" area, on how exactly we determine a project to be "Decent", "Modest", or "Mediocre". Plus, the use of status classes (Finished, Ongoing, etc) is rather unnecessary.
Thus, I propose a revamp of my own "project classification". Rather than differentiating projects into many categories of quality and status, we will simply classify projects in this wiki in two categories:
Submission - All new projects are now considered as "submission" first. Creators of submission must develop and improve their concept overtime, and have it monitored/reviewed by other wiki members. Creators are given a deadline (like six months or more) to have their submission approved by wiki members, or else it will be deleted.
Project - Once a "submission" is approved by wiki members, it is now officially recognized as a proper "project". Regardless of their completion status, all projects will be placed in "Grand Theft Auto titles" category.
Hopefully, this will encourage creators even more to dedicate actual effort on their concept. At the same time, however, all active members must be supportive to new creators, and not bullying/hating them.
So, what do you guys think? and I'm also calling @Chris6d as admin for this one.
Is it just me or is something wrong with the edit window?
Well, Fandom came up with the new UI Design tonight... For me, it's... fine. But might as well, the admin had to change to look of this page like in old days, but with more advencing, since this update came out.
A city I had in my head for a while, it's based off Palm Springs in California, I translated the name into Spanish. Let me know if I should make it or not.

Should canon characters be allowed in fanon videogames? Personally I think no, but I need to hear everyone else's opinion on the matter.
Have you heard the radio in GTA SA lately? There's an fictional role-playing game advertised in here, and that game is called Cavern of Sorrow. This game is mainly based on the infamous Dungeons & Dragons series. There is nothing much known about it, but it's about "a secret society of special friends" and something like ''history f-fest (ya know what i mean)''. It's about to ''find the Cavern of Sorrow'' or it will ''find us''. These all where said during the commercial, as the announcer mentions (the announcer's voice actor is the same voice actor from RDR2's Dutch FYI).
There is also an online version of Cavern of Sorrow in Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, which one of the callers in the Electron Zone segment of LCFR mentioned, said the caller played the game for 12 hours a day and had a problem with the game. their avatars appear after a mission in Gash Canyon. (more likely, yes)
Even you heard it or not (might as well i didn't) but the Playback FM's DJ Forth Right MC mentions having to get supplies for a Cavern of Sorrow marathon. It seems to be, it's ''too big'' things i'm gonna do tonight.
And it the GTA 4, Felix Martinez on the support page of the website pinktorpedo.org wrote that his mother was playing Cavern of Sorrow. And i didn't get the picture of it but if you would like to do a favor for me (or not in this case), send me the picture in pinktorpedo.org's support page's felix's (CJ's Mom's Ghost's House) message picture to me via this page or the page of the game in GTA Fanon Wiki or in my message wall. Cuz i don't think my computer can run a better in GTA 4 (i haven't even tried it out yet) yet...
The notable characters are: Lod Zad the Wizard and Gorath of Backdar
The notable locations/places: Gash Canyon (remember our adventure in here), Gorthback
The notable power-ups/items: Invisibility cloak, invisibility-seeing glasses, a sword which's likely sharpened up (turned it sideways and- oops) and a metal neck given by Gorath of Backdar (other concerns as well)
They are avatars in this game (coming out of nowhere) mention by ''that'' online player in GTA LC LCFR show.
And i'm here to intruduce the project called ''The Gorath for Business (why i titled like that)''. I have already made page of the game (including the marathon) and one of the mobile games. You can support me doing these pages. Feel free to ask me kindly to help me about the future of Cavern of Sorrow series. Let's make this thing bigger in here shall we?
As Dwayne ''The Rock'' Johnson says: Just BRING IT!
Thank you for seeing this message and tell the people the Cavern of Sorrow sent ya.
I have two words for you... MATT-FREAKIN’-HARDY!

So, in GTA single player, you can buy companies, and only Franklin can buy Downtown Cab Co, so is it canon that he buys it? I just need to know for a taxi driver I made up (link below). Can someone help me out?
I am investigating the effects of nostalgia on video game choices. There are many different reasons as to why people play video games, and I am looking to find this reason. More specifically, I am looking to see if the reason is because of nostalgia.
Participation in this study is voluntary. Do not feel pressured into taking this survey.
The procedure includes filling out an online survey that will take approximately 3 minutes. Your responses will be confidential, and we do not collect identifying information such as your name, email address or IP address. The survey will ask questions about age and gender in order to see the audience of the games currently and in the past. The survey will also ask about your gaming preferences out of 5 chosen franchises. Finally, the survey will ask about your purpose for gaming. These will help to determine the common reason people buy these video games.
I will do my best to keep your information confidential. All data is stored in a password protected electronic format. To help protect your confidentiality, the surveys will not contain information that will personally identify you. The results of this study will be used for scholarly purposes only.
If you have any questions concerning this survey, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would like a report on the results of the survey, please send your information to the previously stated email address.
It is known that Bully and Manhunt series belong to the GTA Universe however Red Dead is still a controversial point. In the Cayo Perico Heist DLC Rockstar gave us a lot of hints linking these 2 game series and the only remaining conflicts are the mention of Texas in Diamond Casino & Resort DLC and mention of California and NYC in RDR 2.
But don't forget that even within the GTA universe there are some similar inconsistencies: Miami is mentioned in GTA III, Hollywood is mentioned in Manhunt, Detroit is mentioned in GTA Online and many IRL-cities and states are mentioned on the radio.
What do you think about this? Do you agree that RDR and GTA series exist in the same Universe? This decision can help us in future fanon projects (e.g. a modern story from one of RDR cities or something like that).

As what I have discussed with @Chris6d about cleanup, i'm going to to categorize all the projects in this wiki according to their status and quality. This includes all fan games and fan stories. Other articles such as fan-made vehicles and locations are excluded from the equation.
The reason I want to do this is to filter this wiki from overabundance of low-quality and abandoned projects. The classification will be used to make the filter process easier.
Finished - Projects which content already completed and no longer requires constant editing. Original author(s) are still allowed to edit and expand the content of a finished project. Example: King of The Hill by @Loopiz.
Ongoing - Projects that is currently worked by their author(s).
Hiatus - Projects that is unedited by their author(s) for a month or more.
Abandoned - If a project is untouched for more than 12-month, it is considered to be abandoned by its author(s).
Quality - This include the project's premise, writing, and organizing.
Modest - Projects with promising premise, but with grammar, spelling, and article design that require some fixing.
Mediocre - Poorly-written projects that definitely require extensive editing.
Any project that classified as both abandoned and mediocre will be deleted. However, author(s) of related project will be notified before the deletion. They will have one month (or more) to upgrade the project quality, at least to modest rate. If no improvement whatsoever made, the project will be deleted.
The main Grand Theft Auto titles category (in the navigation bar) should only include project with decent quality, regardless of their status (so project like The After Dark Scene can stay in the category). Hopefully, this will motivate all creators to do the best if they want to be featured in the main category.
All the projects (and their author, status, and quality) will be listed in Grand Theft Auto Fanon Wiki:Projects.
Note that this is still a proposal. I haven't contacted @Raniero R yet (he seems to be last active in September). I'm open for comment and suggestion.

What should we name the lore-friendly Skoda brand? It's a car manufacturer.
Just testing it, what do you think?
I know this is unrelated to our wiki, but I just curious about it.

As the sun beamed down on San Andreas at high noon, Nathan Albright drove along the Great Ocean Highway through Blaine County in his gray Feltzer. With a fully loaded combat pistol carelessly placed on the passenger seat next to him, he muttered some words to himself as he passed through Paleto Bay.
"Yeah, I got contacts 'round here," he recounted the loosely affiliated gangster saying to him earlier, "one in particular is really up for a job but I ain't got her name."
"You what?" Nathan remembered saying in response. He had to be joking.
"Look, just head to the Procopio Truck Stop and wait for a Banshee to pull up. You'll meet them there." they replied.
"What about the candidates I canvassed!" Nathan demanded, unsatisfied with the answer.
"Well, I don't think they was interested no more," they said, completely unfazed at the aggression, "but this one's just as good as any of the rest of them crooks we had you look over before."
Nathan didn't like having a change of schedule being thrown on him at the last second. Had they warned him before he made the flight out from New Peachtree, he probably wouldn't have given it much thought. Once he had parked in front of the 24/7, Nathan leaned his back against his car, stowed his handgun in his concealed holster and situated his sunglasses so they covered his eyes.
Hopefully, whoever he was waiting for, was legit.

I wondered, if anyone else wants it, of course, would it be possible to have a Roleplay Board in this forum?
I thought I would bring it up, because it could be good for members to create roleplays with their characters and encourage more collaboration in a much easier way than trying to create a fan game together.
These RPs can be made between 2 or more people. Could either be closed for a set group if they decide, or open for anyone to join.

A number of articles on this wiki have recently been deleted because they had no categories. Wiki policy specifically states that any article with no categories will be deleted. This has happened already. So if you wake up the next morning and find your article has been deleted because it violated this policy, don't cry, because you broke the policy.
Also, if you are warned once about making an article with no categories and you do it again after, you will be blocked from editing here. If you want a specific article that you made back, you can ask me and I'll restore it. Keep in mind that I'm not being mean, I'm just enforcing the rules and policies of this great wiki, which is my job (as admin). So if you have any questions, you can contact me directly, or here. Thank you.
