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 is currently considered inactive but may be revived by any editor willing to do so.

The Fallout faction overhaul project is a project dedicated to organizing and improving the quality of the various faction pages.

ScopeEdit

All articles in:

GuidelinesEdit

  • Split the history sections into separate articles (leaving a condensed version on the main faction page)
  • Add/Confirm suitable image exists (I.E. Faction flag/logo)
  • Complete infobox
  • Check, improve and keep gameplay information

LayoutEdit

Layout
Section headline required? Content
yesIcon check Infobox and games template.
yesIcon check Short summary that usually looks something like this:

Caesar's Legion is a powerful and merciless slaving organization, led by the charismatic and cunning Caesar."

In general, it should contain:

  • Full name of the faction (and alternative names) in bold.
  • A short description of the faction, including type, pre-war or post-war, occupied territories etc.

Optional:

  • A single quote that characterizes the faction in a clever way.
History yesIcon check History of the faction. If it is exceptionally long, the main article should contain a summary highlighting the most important facts and ultimate goals. In such a case, a link to the article with the factions history (eg. History of the Brotherhood of Steel) placed at the top using {{Main|Target article}}. A sub-section "ending" can be added if the faction in question appears at least in one of endings.
Society/Organization yesIcon check This heading should detail how the faction is organized, how their society functions, if there are any specific social norms etc. the members are expected to follow etc. For smaller factions, like the Gun Runners, simply use the Organization heading to describe it.
Structure noIcon cross In case a faction has a specific hierarchy, this heading should be used to provide an overview of how it is structured. If there is enough information to warrant a separate article, then split the information and leave a summary in the main article along with a link to the child article.
Military noIcon cross In case a faction has a separate military arm that differs substantially from the parent, this heading should be used to provide an overview of how it is structured and how it works. If there is enough information to warrant a separate article, then split the information and leave a summary in the main article along with a link to the child article. Sub-sections "Members", "Rank system" etc. can be added if necessary with a redirect to an existing page.
Relations with the outside yesIcon check An overview of where the faction stands in relation with the outside.
Technology yesIcon check An overview of where the faction's technological level.
Interactions with the player character noIcon cross Optional, only if the player can have different interactions with them, but necessary if a faction appears in several games.
Notes noIcon cross For interesting things about the faction which do not fit into the other categories - gameplay or not gameplay. Try to keep this section to a minimum.
Development noIcon cross For any and all information relating to the development of the faction before the game's release.
Appearances yesIcon check Which games/add-ons does this faction appear in.
Behind the scenes noIcon cross For out-of-game references and similar stuff.
Bugs noIcon cross For bugs unique to the faction. Quest bugs should be moved to the appropriate quest article page. General bugs should be removed from the NPC article. This section should be used sparingly, as entirely faction-specific bugs are uncommon.
Gallery noIcon cross Cluttering the article with too many images should be avoided. Instead, place them in a gallery at the end if applicable.
References noIcon cross If a <ref> tag has been used in the article, {{references}} needs to be inserted here. This section is ONLY for this purpose.
Navboxes noIcon cross Navboxes go at the end of the article.

InfoboxEdit

The info box should contain:

{{Infobox faction
|game         = Which game(s) this faction appears in
|name         ={{PAGENAME}}
|image        =Image of the emblem of the faction
|desc         =Short description of the emblem 
|founder      =Self-explanatory
|leader       =Enumerate leaders appearing in the games, along with the dates of their reign
|headquarters =Self-explanatory
|locations    =Self-explanatory
|parent       =If this is a splinter faction or a subfaction, note the parent one here
|divisions    =Self-explanatory
|related      =Self-explanatory
|members      =Self-explanatory; if an excessive number of members exists, link to the category instead.
}}

ImageEdit

  • Should show the faction logo/emblem/insignia
  • Images should be of good quality and easily readable.
  • Images should show no parts of the UI, i.e. no crosshair or HUD.

It is best to extract images directly from texture files if possible. If you have artistic skills, you can remake the logo/emblem/insignia in high resolution and make it look great.

ParticipantsEdit
