I felt ridiculous looking down the barrel of my rifle at barelegged men... call me old fashioned.”— Ro-beast, on the Legion
Hello nifty America. This is your President speaking, John He- ha! Gotcha!... well, not really. You all knew that this was the Weekly Saturday Polls.
Although I am your President, Yessie. Consider me a pollitician of sorts... bad pun, sorry. Anyway, the Fallout: Apprentice game that the Wiki plays has completed it's first challenge, with dear friend Doc being eliminated. Rather unfortunate, Doc is a very creative person and it's a shame to see him go so soon. However, the next challenge has already begun, so keep on the lookout. I'll be attempting to create a town that could appear in the original Fallout... wish me luck, ladies and gentleghouls.
Last Week's Results
On to business, last week features another two polls. I doubt many will be surprised by the results of the first question, but regardless, the question was Who is your favourite Fallout series radio host?
The results are as follows:
- In third place, with thirteen votes is Tabitha! All you other dum-dums didn't vote right, right Rhonda?
- Coming in second was Mr. New Vegas with 28 votes. Stay beautiful, Nukapedia.
- And in first place (surprisingly), with 65 votes, was Three-Dog! Actually, serious question - why is his name Three-Dog anyway?
The second poll asked the question Which quest took you the longest to complete? The results are as follows:
- In third place with thirty-seven votes was Other, which I'm going to chalk down to The Legend of the Star due to my incompetence to add the quest in the poll.
- In second place with 152 votes was The Nuka-Cola Challenge. Does anyone else still pointlessly collect Quantums and other coloured Nuka-Colas in New Vegas for no reason? Just me...?
- And coming in first with an impressive 213 votes is The Wasteland Survival Guide! I prefer taking the "Dream Crusher" route, mostly because I despise Moira Brown.
We got, surprise surprise, another two polls for all you lovely viewers out there.
The first poll idea comes from Mad Max The Road Warrior; take the time to read his newly written story! This idea isn't the conventional popularity poll like usual, but keep in mind that I was required to switch the polls due to size issues, so this was intended to be the smaller secondary poll. Anyway, imagine as though you were in Fallout: New Vegas. It's a political battleground between several armies, all vying for control of Hoover Dam and the Strip. If you were in the middle of this, which leader would you want ruling the Mojave?
Poll:Which New Vegas leader would you want to live under in real life
The second comes from Wildwes7g7. I'm not sure if I've done this idea yet, but regardless, it's a fun one. Everyone has their favourite companions to travel the wastes with. Mine is Boone (although I usually switch to my second-favourite, Cass, when Boone steals all the experience). Very few people would choose to travel the harsh wastes alone... so who's your favourite companion in the Fallout series?
NOTE: This was intended to be used as the primary poll (above), but due to the size it had to be moved to the secondary poll. Apologies to Wildwes7g7
PLEASE NOTE: Dogmeat counts for all his incarnations including Fallout, Fallout 2 and Fallout 3

And as an added no-poll question, Mr Majestyk asks one this week. Although not strictly Fallout related, considering it fits in with the post-apocolyptic theme, I thought I'd use it:
Who is your favourite character from a Post-Apocalyptic video game?
This can be anything from Fallout to Half-Life, Metro 2033 to Wasteland... if it's set after the Apocalypse (nuclear, zombie, or other) then it's valid.
So there you have it. Tell us which leader you'd want to live under, and which companion you like travelling the Wasteland with. Maybe you like Dogmeat for his insightful conversations (woof woof). Or perhaps you're more a fan of Raul and his witty ghoul humour. Maybe you hate them all and prefer to go solo. It's your choice, Nukapedia.
That's all from me, ladies and gents. I'll continue to prattle on about unrelated things, so don't feel obliged to listen to my gibberish. First thing's first - 22.214.171.124 wins extra poll-points for being the only person to recognise the B1 B2 reference. It was Bananas in Pyjamas for those of you who don't watch Australian children's television.
In other news, due to my dwindling activity on this website, I was formally discharged from my Vice-Presidency of the official Nukapedia Enclave. This followed a statement issued to President Denis517 by Dead Gunner. Naturally, as any evil politician would do, I have since formed my own political group. I'm the President of the Neo-Enclave. We don't do anything, really; we basically exist out of spite of the original Enclave. Agent c and Hawk da Barber are already amongst the ranks, but if you want to be spared the harshness of the Wasteland then merely pledge your undying support below.
Keep in mind that all of this is just a bit of friendly rivalry between myself and my good pal Denis. I suppose I'm obliged to ask you not to take anything seriously, but I know that all of you are awesome enough to recognise that the Neo-Enclave is a joke. Vote regardless!
Last but not least, I went over my sandbox today to retrieve poll suggestions. The sandbox is just a place where I work on bits and pieces for the Wiki or elsewhere. Anyway, I scrolled down to the bottom and noticed something - why is Morgan Freeman winning the poll instead of me? For shame, Nukapedia!
Until next week, have fun everyone. If you have any crazy ideas for a fun poll, just tell me about it on my talk page, or catch me in chat. I'll be here every Saturday so be patient!
