WikiGTA is created by GTAGames.nl. Our goal is to collect as much information about the Grand Theft Auto series as we can. Contrary to most other wiki sites, this website is built and maintained by a limited group of people. Therefore you can be sure that all information comes from knowledgeable people, so the quality of information on this site is maintained.
Answers to the most frequently asked questions can be found in our WikiGTA:FAQ.
The Dutch WikiGTA was created on 2 October 2005, and launched twenty days later, on the second anniversary of GTAforum.nl on 22 October 2005. The site was an instant success; thanks to our editors, we needed no more than a month to create a thousand pages of information about GTA. Nowadays it counts well over 3000 articles, 7000 images and the site often comes up first with a Google search on anything that has something to do with GTA.
The crew decided to go global with the English WikiGTA, which was created on 24 April 2006. Primary focus was still on the Dutch version and progress was slow, but after January 2007 things went much faster. However, alignment issues between the Dutch and English version caused the progress to slow down. In April, the work has been resumed and the 1000th article was made. This amount was thought to be enough to launch the site, and May 20th 2007 was picked to do this. By that time, the site counted 1294 articles, made by 20 members of which 5 were staff members.
