GoodspringsEdit

No Goodsprings characters? Mitchell? I'm not much for wiki stuff, but shouldn't this be on the listing? --DaedalusMachina 06:53, August 24, 2010 (UTC)

Paulson from Fallout 3: MZ Edit

He's a random encounter in the new fallout game, when you see him he will be shocked at the worlds state, you can lie or tell him the truth about what happened. he will give you one of his guns. if you kill him you can get the second one. which you can dual wield. anybody else hear this? 65.183.212.114 19:59, September 27, 2010 (UTC)

This is probably the most incorrect thing ever. Carter o51 15:57, October 17, 2010 (UTC)

I don't mean to be a jerk or anything but that sounds like a complete lie.--Roflguy227 16:49, October 17, 2010 (UTC)

It's true: the anon from 65.183.212.114 is a liar. No Fallout 3 characters are going to be in New Vegas. --Kris User Hola 17:17, October 17, 2010 (UTC)

And, correct me if I'm wrong, isn't MZ semi-canon at best?JASPER//"Do you like hurting other people?"UserRichard 17:18, October 17, 2010 (UTC)

I know of nothing that would indicate that Mothership Zeta is less than fully canon. Aside from sour grapes from Fallout purists. --Kris User Hola 17:27, October 17, 2010 (UTC)

The massive plot hole that concerns the death ray being "destroyed". Nitty Tok. 17:27, October 17, 2010 (UTC)

Shall we ask Grizzly? I thought all DLCs were semi-canon untill proven canon, with the exception of Broken Steel maybe. This is really just opion I guess.JASPER//"Do you like hurting other people?"UserRichard 17:30, October 17, 2010 (UTC)

They're all canon until proven not. Nitty Tok. 17:31, October 17, 2010 (UTC)

Fair enough. Probably saw it as semi-canon on the Fanfic site.JASPER//"Do you like hurting other people?"UserRichard 17:32, October 17, 2010 (UTC)

Ranks/Nomenclature Edit

Is there consensus regarding the naming of character pages? As in do you include ranks/titles/jobs? At the moment it seems a bit inconsistent with Doctor Henry being "Doctor" and Corporal Sterling being just that, but Carrie Boyd not being a Lieutenant and Colonel Hsu being a Col. only after my edit, but not in the character box template. Opinions?

Additionally, there is a discrepancy between the naming on this page and the naming in the characters' pages themselves. (e.g. Carrie Boyd) --CaptainScience 13:25, October 25, 2010 (UTC)

We do not include ranks in article titles, regardless of in-game usage. I moved Colonel Hsu to James Hsu. Ausir(talk) 13:46, October 25, 2010 (UTC)
What about usage within articles? does in-game usage take preference there? --CaptainScience 13:52, October 25, 2010 (UTC)
Well, within articles it depends on the context, and you can always call them e.g. "Colonel Hsu", linking only the name itself. There should always be a redirect from the in-game name, anyhow. Ausir(talk) 14:14, October 25, 2010 (UTC)
Okay, cool. Thanks. CaptainScience 14:15, October 25, 2010 (UTC)

After having a few more looks: What about Rangers etc.? Isn't Ranger Ghost supposed to be "Ghost" instead? --CaptainScience 15:35, October 25, 2010 (UTC)

Change Format Edit

Would it be a good idea to change the format of this page to meet the similar appearance to the weapons page or the armor page? Having statistics listed along with their names. For this page we could list what is in their inventory or what quests and factions they are involved in.--198.161.108.18 18:18, November 16, 2010 (UTC)

Incorrect hyperlinks Edit

To administrators,

About a week ago i edited Camp Forlorn Hope on Fallout:New Vegas characters. I wasn t able to correcty hyperlink Major Polatli, Sergeant Cooper and private Sexton. Can you correct this? Also 9mm round(s) is giving me problems. After hyperlinking it it says 9mm round (Fallout: New Vegas). Thx.

Melissa Edit

She isn't in Red Rock she is in Great Khan Encampment near Quarry Junction. I usually don't do this Wikia stuff so who changes it or what happens???

Why does the bug page redirect here when there's no bug talk? Edit

I've got a rather serious bug that deals with Marcus in Jacobstown, but there's no mention of it on the bug page; instead, it redirects me here, to... tables. Not very helpful!

The issue at hand is that his health ticks down whenever I'm in the same area as him - he's literally down to one tic of health, and I'm afraid to enter Jacobstown again for fear of him dropping stone dead the second I get near him. Another curiosity - the bighorners in town seem to be non-hostile to everyone BUT him! I found this out as he was tossed like a beach ball across my path.

Would someone be so kind as to drop a link to where I can enter this? As an aside, I'm on the 360. 75.31.6.54 02:35, May 17, 2011 (UTC)

Boone has Lilly's weapons Edit

I made Lily and Boone go to the Lucky 38 and then I had Lily for a companion but she didn't have her weapons. Then I switched to Boone has a companion and Boone had Lily's weapons. How do I fix this?

Great Khan stalkers Edit

I have a problem that is really annoying. If I am somewhere for example hidden valley's BOS bunker two Great Khans will walk through the entrance and stand there until I leave.

P.s. It happens everywhere not just Hidden Valley.

PP.s The two Khans will always have the same models as the previous encounter. (Two males one caucasian and one african american both armed with hunting shotguns. Does this happen to anyone else?

Victor in the Presidential suite Edit

There seems to be no entry for the Victor in the Presidential suite, which is surely the most useful one for fast travel. Ref ID is 157261 -Jatopian 04:27, August 18, 2013 (UTC)
