It is clear from the community vote on the negotiated settlement with Wikia/Fandom that the community is not satisfied with what is offered.
As such, I would like to now ask the community where our red line is, and if the community is happy for me to continue in this role.
As we seem to be getting a great and speedy response, I only anticipate this being open for 72 hours. If no single option has overwhelming support on its own, where an option includes another option votes will be read as being inclusive in there. Okay, I think its clear that going ahead with a meeting is a good idea. At this stage I would like to open the floor to agenda items. We have the following things to discuss.
- An update on any negotiations, and other actions
- Possible action to progress our case further whilst staying on network
- Possible engagement with Wikia on video in line with the proposed deal- if we should participate and whom that contact person should be.
- Possible alternatives if the situation cannot be resolved.
Please let me know if you want anything added to the agenda below.
I'll be asking a number of people to speak on certain issues, but as always there will be plenty of room for discussion.
I propose that the meeting be held at 3pm North American Eastern Time on Sunday 24 September, this should be 8pm in London, 9pm Central European time, and Midday North American Western. If there are any objections please note them below and we'll look into alternative scheduling, the more objections the harder we look for a new time.
We have arranged facilities for the meeting, it will be held online. It is open to all persons who have participated in any of the video discussion threads up to today, except those employed by Fandom/Wikia inc (as this is the Community's meeting), or have been employed by them in the recent past.
Votes taken in this meeting will be taken as consensus view of the wiki, so everyone is encouraged to attend.
We have setup a discord server (Nukapedia's Fallout Shelter) located here. It is mobile friendly (via an app) and is very flexible.
Although everyone is welcome in our social space (The-Common-Room), only persons who meet the above criteria will be admitted to The-Town-Hall (where the meeting will be located). You may be asked to verify your account before this access is granted. Agent c (talk) 21:05, September 11, 2017 (UTC)

New Releases News
New Season of Nuka Break coming soon!
Recently, Wayside Digital (formerly known as Wayside Creations) released their final trailer Fallout: The Wanderer, for their latest fan series in the Fallout universe. For those new to Wayside Digital: Wayside Digital is the non-profit that brought us the excellent Fallout: Nuka Break series, a very well known Fallout fan series that's popular enough to get an own Wikipedia page and even an in-game reference in Fallout: New Vegas.
Layoffs at Obsidian
Sad news coming out of Obsidian HQ today. The New Vegas developer is laying off some staff from its Armored Warfare team as the publisher for this title has decided to bring some of the work in house.
This highlights some of the dangers for those of you looking for careers in the Video Games industry. Studios expand, contract, and fall as their games do. Companies who solely develop games, like Obsidian are at the whim and mercy of their publisher "partners". Others doing less glamorous work for sub contractors who work only when there is work - between projects they're left on their own.
Obsidian will continue to work on the project, but our best wishes go out to those who are getting the "enforced vacation", and hope you'll all be gainfully employed again real soon.
