  • The free drinks isn't the objective in that mission, he gives cops free drinks because the bar is where he keeps all his profits, and he thinks having cops around will protect that money. The $10,000 damage is done by stealing the money.

    • Got it, since the subplot said "free drinks" it was confusing. Objective is to get money, not stop flow of free drinks.

  • In regard to many of your recent edits, much of the information you're adding is either speculative, unnecessary, or is covered on other pages already.

    On speculation, one recent example is you last edit to the Lincoln Clay page, in which you wrote "While it was not known if it meant killing Sammy...". If something is unknown, then we don't add it to our pages. We don't speculate on the reason a character said or did something. Besides, I never got the impression Sal was suggesting Lincoln kill Sammy, just take over for him. So in my opinion it is known what he meant.

    Another example would be on the Baka page, where you wrote "it was still possible that Baka may have been the underboss of the Haitian Mob." Again, you're speculating on something that's not specifically mentioned in the game. If you're using words like "possible, probable, likely" there's a good chance what you're adding is speculation.

    Another area of concern is that a lot of the information you're adding is unnecessary, as it's covered on other pages. One of our main goals here is to keep our pages brief and on point. That means we don't cover every single detail on every page. We do try and cover everything, but we spread the information around. We may briefly reference something on a character page, then go into more detail on another, like a mission page. Even then, we don't document every last detail, it makes the articles too long.

    Again, your recent addition to the Lincoln Clay page is a good example, most of what you added about Lincoln's meeting with Sal are details already covered on The Home Fires Burn page. Lincoln is the protagonist of the game, if you detail main character pages to cover everything to that extent, they end up so long that they become a chore to read.

    You did pretty much the same thing on the Anna McGee and High Priest pages. All those details are already covered on the mission pages. Again, character pages should be a brief overview about them, not a detailed account of every action they took.

    • You need to stop the rephrasing edits. By that I mean, changing the wording of an article to say the same basic thing, but in a different way. If there's an error in grammar or spelling, then by all means correct it, but don't change an article just because you think it sounds better your way.

      Here's an example:

      • Original = Vito instructs Francesca to retrieve his money from Joe.
      • Your edit = Vito instructs Francesca that Joe had been safeguarding a stash of money for him, and that she should see Joe to get it.

      Those two sentences relay the exact same details, only using different wording. You added nothing new to the article. Most of your edits amount to this, along with other mostly insignificant details added in. You need to stop this.

  • Please don't add speculation and assumptions to the articles. Stick to only what's known from the game itself or other resources. (Family Album, Frankie Potts files, etc.)
