When The Vault was first brought to Wikia, the community that came along with it, found itself quickly adjusting to its new wiki-life. All was doing well - not only did our Fallout encyclopedia find a home with no resource restrictions, but we also found a host that was diligent in protecting us from those that were malicious enough to chase The Vault from its old home. Thus, we placed our stake within Wikia, and became a part of its greater picture. But did we settle? The truth of the matter, is that Ausir tried to find his home within many other hosts, and in his second-to-last act of finding The Vault a new home, he came across The Unofficial Elder Scrolls Pages. Ausir was turned down, again, but not before the UESP referred him to Wikia. …Read more >
Before I continue, I want to take this chance to state that I am still not able to come back to Nukapedia due to real-life obligations, which also means that I will not be able to personally oversee the growth of this blog (I will be keeping tabs on the overall tournament). Because of this, a friend of mine will be taking over my position here after I have released this blog, and she will help address all concerns and/or questions the community might have. Since she will be volunteering her time to see this blog through, all I ask for, is to please be respectful, and to keep all comments concise and relevant so that she continues feeling comfortable with her part in this tournament. Thank you for understanding.
As a second note, it ne…

We have already noted the direction that our affiliation re-evaluation is going, and we are going to go ahead and stop here, as there is really no point in continuing onwards. Since 2012, we have faithfully served Nukapedia, but times change, and so have we with our own home now. If it ever gets to a point where a bridge between communities is needed, then we might be around again. But for now, it is time to split off and start really focusing on unique content for ourselves.
However, Nukapedia was our home and our birth-place. Nukapedia is absolutely free to remove all signs from us, but we still hold an open offer to move Nukapedia from our Affiliates page, over onto a Resources page, instead, so that our Patrons still know to come to her…Read more >
As some of you are already aware of, Wikia has recently introduced a new feature which allows its users to create interactive images, by utilizing default templates already provided to wikis, or by uploading new template images you might have tucked away in the depths of your computer. What is the benefit of using this feature over image mapping? Image mapping requires its creator to discern very specific coordinates for wherever they want a redirect, making image mapping a very tedious process that gets more and more complicated for large images. With the new interactive map feature we have, the process has been simplified to the point where you simply drag a waypoint onto the image, and add in as much text, map icons, and redirects as yo…Read more >
Hello fellow Patrons! Around 2-3 years ago, when the Strategic Nuclear Moose was still a blog on Nukapedia & The Vault, we sought to create a newsletter of sorts called the SNM Sentinel. We had a lot of people that signed up, but when the Moose went into hiatus, the Sentinel went down as well. So with our new community site up and with numbers now hitting nearly 200 unique visitors daily, we are looking to revive this feature in one of two ways:
- If you are merely a viewer and do not want to actually create an account on the Moose, we are willing to accommodate them so long as they are regular wiki-patrons. Utilizing a bot created by our resident editor and Patron Skire, we can bring the Sentinel directly to your talk-page!
- I am currently workin…
