This is the home page of a Nukapedia project. A project is a collaboration of editors improving articles and other content related to a particular subject. For more information, see Fallout Wiki:Projects.
This project has been completed and is no longer active.

The Document conversion project is a project which aims to make two sets of source documents fully available for reading at the wiki: the Fallout Bible and the Van Buren design documents.

The design documents were previously not available at the wiki at all. The Fallout Bible installments, while available, are not 100% complete and often with broken formatting, so we decided to start anew, this time using an automated conversion first.

ScopeEdit

  • Converting all 10 Fallout Bible installments.
  • Converting all 16 leaked Van Buren design documents.

GuidelinesEdit

Necessary tasksEdit

  1. Convert the documents from Word/PDF documents to wiki syntax.
  2. Upload images from original documents.
    • Re-add images to converted docs. See #Images for details.
  3. Fix formatting issues caused by conversion.
  4. Create links from converted documents to wiki articles.
  5. (Van Buren design documents only) Each design document needs to be split into multiple pages to make them suitable for reading at the wiki.

Frequent conversion issuesEdit

This is basically a collection of common issues people should look out for when checking/fixing the formatting of the converted documents.

  1. Headlines:
    • Headline levels (==, === etc) are assigned somewhat arbitrarily (depends on how thorough the respective author was with his formatting in Word) and need to checked/fixed.
    • ALL-CAPS headlines need to be properly formatted.
  2. Tables:
    • Headers need to be formatted: Replace normal cells ( | ) with proper header cells ( ! ).
    • Remove superfluous empty lines in between table rows
  3. Numbered lists (#): The converter likes to put empty lines between the list items, which then causes the numbering not to work as the wiki considers each list item to be a list of its own. Empty lines in between need to be removed.
  4. Indents (:): The converter removes pretty much all indents; these need to be reapplied for better structuring.
  5. Special formatting: Things like coloured text, strikethrough markup etc are usually lost in the conversion and need to be reapplied/replaced with something appropriate.

ImagesEdit

  1. Images are usually replaced with [[Image:]] placeholders in the conversion, which makes it easy to identify the places where they need to be readded.
  2. The images can be found in subcategories of:
