Can you not add the image size = 240px parameter to the infoboxes. Wikia is still working on the fix. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 18:11, May 20, 2013 (UTC)

You took the words out of my mouth. Realized that just now when I saw your edits on location pages. Then we would have a problem yes, especially on the location pages with map markers. Just received word by mail it's high priority for Wikia. Weekend got in the way but they're back working on it. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 18:16, May 20, 2013 (UTC)

PHV Edit

I hate to hassle you over this, but please read through the two forums that I set up before the vote. The rationale behind your no vote has been proven wrong by in-game evidence, nor was your interpretation of the vote even right. This vote has nothing to do with humans. This vote is over the terminology, its founding, its relevance towards the Fallout games, and what it's about. ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 19:57, May 20, 2013 (UTC)

  • ..." and the enclaves love of the term..."
    • You saying this proves that you did not read the forums. Properly, at least.
  • "Creating a new article would imply that there is some sort of major genetic difference between the two groups..."
    • This has nothing to do with genetics. Like the forums stated, 'Pure Humans' are merely humans that are properly affected by FEV. That's it. Not being a 'Pure Human' doesn't make you any less human.
  • " This is not only not true, but contrary to everything we know based on the data provided."
    • I provided in-game proof. A lot of proof. Where is the proof for your statement?

ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 20:17, May 20, 2013 (UTC)

Cont. Edit

You don't have to worry about any of that. I will make sure to go out of my way to state that 'Pure Humans' are no different than normal humans found out in the wastes. I certainly don't want to spread around false ideologies that 'Pure Humans' are a different species. ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 00:52, May 21, 2013 (UTC)

Debate Edit

I want to formally state that I appreciate you debating with me about this. It's all I ever wanted - is for people to actually discuss this with me instead of jumping the bandwagon or acting off of pre-conceived notions. I just wish more people were doing what you are doing right now, instead of hiding in chat and ignoring the forums. Right now, at least we're making progress towards what this vote is intending to do. ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 18:49, May 22, 2013 (UTC)

You're understanding me perfectly. Debates are exactly that - for opposing sides to break away from the opinions and to leave the entire subject at its most pure and factual foundation for others to take into consideration. It's very frustrating for me when people can't see this, and either take is as personal, or avoid it altogether. I just wish it didn't take two forums and a good portion of the vote to finally have someone start up a debate. If more people were willing to actually debate, then I'd gladly post-pone the vote and allow everyone to discuss their thoughts. ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 19:10, May 22, 2013 (UTC)
You're right - more time would have been better for the entire process. But with the lack of attention, I was hoping the vote would finally spark the attention that the subject deserved. At least it looks like the lore page will go through, which is without a doubt, the most important aspect of the vote. Since you have shown such an interest, I'll have to run by you with the rough draft I'm creating, and seeing if you have any improvements you'd like to add. As for the list of confirmed 'Pure Humans', I will not be adding those quite yet except for the ones that we know without a doubt. Forum part II will still be active to help determine who should be considered or not. I'd definitely still love feedback there if you're interested. ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 19:23, May 22, 2013 (UTC)
Oh, when you get the chance, check out the new point that I addressed. It turns out that Harold is not the only 'Pure Human' from a Vault to undergo a unique ghoul-like mutation. I'm surprised, I don't ever recall ever meeting the guy before. ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 19:31, May 22, 2013 (UTC)
Definitely still unique in that respect. But it's interesting to me that 'Pure Humans' can be rarely evolved into ghoul-like entities instead of the typical Super Mutant. ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 19:38, May 22, 2013 (UTC)
If we're lucky, Fallout 4 will expand upon FEV even more. ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 19:43, May 22, 2013 (UTC)

Vandal Sock Edit

Hey bleep, a sock of that pizza anon just showed up, apparently he's not a fan of you. Richie9999 (talk) 00:35, May 23, 2013 (UTC)


Good to know. I'm awaiting my computer to be fixed so this might be delayed for a few days (my apologies). I will remove them as soon as possible. --Skire (talk) 00:44, May 23, 2013 (UTC)

Voting ruleEdit

Yeah, I can't spot it either.

I suggest we wait rather than do a single vote, and instead wrap up a few other things in a consoldating vote. I think we can look at striking the IRC channel stuff, and maybe a few other minor housekeeping issues. Agent c (talk) 01:52, May 24, 2013 (UTC)


I know. I just fixed it an hour ago or so in the {{infobox location}} template after a tip. I'll send Skire or TwoBears a post to let their bot make null edits on the pages. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 14:29, May 25, 2013 (UTC)

What do you mean purging? Jspoel Speech Jspoel 14:35, May 25, 2013 (UTC)

Get your tweed out Edit

Would you still like to go over my rough draft? I would love further ideas for additions or revisions. You may find my sandbox over the page here. ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 15:04, May 30, 2013 (UTC)

I found the reference needed to prove that radiation is the main factor.
  • "First, Chris Avellone seemed to prefer the "FEV explains everything" theory of mutation. He suggests that when the Glow was hit by the Chinese warheads, the tanks holding the virus burst and the FEV was vaporized and shot into the air. It was then mutated by the radiation from the blast, and went on to help radiation create the various mutant animals we know and love as well as ghouls. The problem with this theory is that first off it's a bit redundant since Fallout radiation is already fully capable of producing the mutations seen in the gameworld. Second, we know from the Lieutenant's mention of inoculation from mutant FEV that any airborne strain of FEV could not cause these mutations. If it did, why didn't any humans mutate from exposure to the airborne FEV? Furthermore, if radscorpions, geckos, molerats, deathclaws and other creepie-crawlies are all products of FEV, how can they breed as much as they do? Remember, FEV causes sterility. Avellone eventually admitted that he was wrong, and that most mutations in the Fallout world were caused by the ambient radiation."

Vandal/newuser report Edit

I just undid an edit by a vandal: Special:Contributions/ I also undid another edit by a user User:Tavish30 who does not seem to be malicious but is perhaps a bit overeager; made an edit to Megaton that wiped out the gallery, which I undid, and some other edits that might need to be looked at. --FFIX (talk) 11:18, June 8, 2013 (UTC)

Sorry I hurt your feelings. It's just a joke dude, if you honestly want us to stop doing something just ask "please stop" instead of saying something like "I'm stopping". If you really don't like it, I won't bring it up again.
Didn't mean to distress you.

Banter Edit

I don't have anything against you, Bleep. We banter with people we feel comfortable around. Sorry if I made you feel angry or uncomfortable. Metal Gear Mk. II "Anything, for the family" 19:10, June 29, 2013 (UTC)

Ban Edit

Firstly, I would like to apologise for what I said since it has clearly upset you. However, I would like to make it clear that it would have been more sensible for you to have made it clear that what I said bothered you, especially since I have never seen you say that your not being in a relationship depresses you. When you simply said I'm done with this discussion I interpreted it as you not wanting to partake in, what I thought to be, friendly banter rather than you being genuinely uncomfortable with the conversation. That said, I am not arguing this ban, just pointing out that you should have made it clearer to me that the conversation was bothering you. Again, I am sorry for what I said and I do acknowledge that it was wrong for me to have said it, Bleep. It won't happen again. Higgey the Scotsman (talk page) 08:21, June 30, 2013 (UTC)

I'm glad we could settle this amicably. Had I known you had these issues conveying your discomfort due to things that have happened to you in the past, I wouldn't have even thought of prolonging the teasing. And for the record - I know what it's like to be bullied as well. Higgey the Scotsman (talk page) 14:23, June 30, 2013 (UTC)

Removing tagsEdit

I suppose you're choosing to manually remove the tags. But you know a bot can do that too, right? Any chance you can help out with the soundfiles btw? Jspoel Speech Jspoel 14:59, June 30, 2013 (UTC)

Jasper's creation. And he's project leader. But he doesn't own the project, he wants and welcomes manpower. Ask him in chat and he will confirm I'm sure after reading his post to FFIX. Everyone who wants to participate is welcome. But if it's not the project for you, so be it. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 15:05, June 30, 2013 (UTC)

I know that a lot of characters use that quote in combat, but with Marcus it is an undeniable match. The flow of the words, and tone are almost exactly the same as Vader; but of course I can see why you would think otherwise. --TheItalianMafia (talk) 15:43, July 2, 2013 (UTC)

I had those thoughts in the back f my mind, but I understand. --TheItalianMafia (talk) 15:48, July 2, 2013 (UTC)


You do know you can ask someone to run a bot to remove those project tags? All of them? Energy X 16:58, July 2, 2013 (UTC)

Reconfirmation processEdit

I reopened the discussion on the reconfirmation process at Forum:Reconfirmation_Process and I'd like your input on the ideas that we were working on. The Gunny  380px-USMC-E7 svg 20:29, July 5, 2013 (UTC)

I know this is a difficult request to fulfill, but I would like to suggest that for a map it would be cool if you guys made an interactive map similar to the pip boy for fallout 3, new vegas, and the DLCs for both. Each location would open to a page about the location page that you guys have already made. -- 08:38, August 1, 2013 (UTC)Anonuserandfan

Chat entity Edit

Sorry that I didn't get back with you earlier. Here is my explanation:

  • Chat has its own rules and regulations separate from the wiki.
  • Chat bans and history cannot be used in conjunction with wiki-based bans.
  • The chat feature is technically a sub-sub-domain, and activity based in chat is supposed to be considered off-site behaviour. The same was with the IRC channel, and the same will be if we ever decide to use somewhere else for our chatting concerns.

ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 00:52, August 13, 2013 (UTC)

I don't consider them as separate. I do agree that chat is a sub domain, but there are rules that we enforce in chat that are wiki based rules, ie sockpuppetry. We also enforce wikia's ToU. I certainly don't consider chat "off-site", since it's not. It's a part of the domain, and all of our admins automatically gain chat mod rights. How I interpret the overlap of chat rules and site rules is this: If a rule is expressly spelled out as a chat rule, it trumps any less specific site rule. All other wikia ToU and site rules apply, in general, but the enforcement is normally limited to the use of chat. There have been rare instances where conduct in chat has resulted in site blocks, but they've been very rare, and were very severe. The Gunny  380px-USMC-E7 svg 01:29, August 13, 2013 (UTC)
Well, what I meant by off-site, is that, for instance, we wouldn't ban someone for actions based on another Wikia wiki, unless it was a serious transgression that affected our reputation. But I digress in regards to the point that at least the chat feature is a sub-sub domain of the Nukapedia sub-domain. As for the rest, I suppose the notion I have set forth was birthed from the general understanding that actions within chat shouldn't leak out much into the actual wiki. ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 01:41, August 13, 2013 (UTC)
Yeah. I'd agree with that. It's been very rare that we've blocked someone on the wiki for actions in chat. Unless you count all the socks we block that are solely from users reentering chat after a ban. So there is some overlap, but like I said, I feel that the specific chat rules have precedence. The Gunny  380px-USMC-E7 svg 01:47, August 13, 2013 (UTC)
Sock-puppetry is definitely one of those unique scenarios, that doesn't happen as uniquely as one would hope. But I would consider that a two-way transgression, since account management is accessed through the actual wiki. ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 01:54, August 13, 2013 (UTC)

Bugs Edit

Hi, you're welcome! When I come on here and haven't got something specific to add I flick through random pages and try to fix the little things, and I think more should be put into bugs, (not you personally, but anyone), so I try, I think that way one-offs can be separated and more importantly because if I, you, or anyone reports a bug, they can have it explained or verified. I can imagine there aren't enough people verifying the smaller things, and genuine bugs become overdue. That said I have a couple of questions;

  • Categorizing bugs that are not strictly bugs (bear with me), for example something that should happen but doesn't, but affects all platforms and is constant, i.e. like an oversight or error in the game. (if that makes sense). Some look established but not verified, or am I looking too far?
  • Secondary bugs or notes for bugs. Some look as if we are to presume them correct or self-evident, I suppose what I'm asking is, should I just be using reason?

I am sorry. I don't know how to create those logs. This is one of the reasons I never asked to be more than just a basic member. I do not have that kind of technical skills. I did not grow up with a computer mouse in my hand. I can barely spell.

  • I thought you wanted prof of good intent.

Even the mods who have acted against me have recanted belief that I intended any harm. I ask you please take their word as proof ? If their word is good enough to ban me on impulse, should it not be good enough after reconsideration and deliberation to absolve me ?

If the accuser has clearly made it public that they regret making the charge then should that not be enough?

I am humbly at your disposal. Please tell me what more I can do?

Forum Discussion Edit

I stand by what I said, but I want to apologize for being so abrasive. I understand now that you held no ill-intent with your words. I'm just not big for accusations, and as I've talked to quite a few people over this topic, I've come to understand that there are quite a few accusations being thrown around over us supposedly playing favourites. Thank you for your opinion, and I hope to see you on the community vote tomorrow. ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 05:44, November 6, 2013 (UTC)

Well, every single user who is listed as inactive has made an edit in the last six months; that's not what decides things. As far as I'm concerned, and I'm sure you see this too, he has edited far less actively than any other member listed as a patroller, and given his (in)frequency, we shouldn't be giving the impression that he is active. 69.l25 (talk) 02:39, November 23, 2013 (UTC)

Staff invitation to NotYEdit

Hi there. As you may or may not know, the 2013 Nukapedian of the Year contest is currently ongoing. A lack of integrity in the original polling format has spurred a change in the voting system used.

Your request Edit

I took a quick look at the messages and my first instinct is to say that we have a "no mods, none of the time" policy. We don't add any of the things that Josh Sawyer fixed in New Vegas with is mod, and this is similar, even without the backing of being the guy that made the game. I'll take a more in depth look later tonight, but my inclination is the no mods covered rule will apply. In order for us to change that, we'd have to open up discussion with the entire community. If I recall correctly, this was recently done and even mods like Project Brazil were determined to not be in the remit of the wiki. The Gunny  UserGunny chevrons 20:57, December 13, 2013 (UTC)

You'll have to forgive me for removing it without direct explanation. I contacted an administrator who agreed with me that the post could be removed on the bases that: 1. what was reported was not a bug and 2. the question has been resolved; it was then removed to prevent the impression that talk pages were made for game-play questions. Would you be okay with removing it for these reasons? 69.l25 (talk) 00:14, January 30, 2014 (UTC)

Yes, you're correct; it was Limmie. And I'd be happy to clear any bug tp removal by you before I actually remove a post. Just as a side note, what I used to do was remove a "This happened to me in-game post" and add in the bug they mentioned. (Most of these posts dipped into personal stories, which I was not trying to encourage.), so don't worry about any lost bugs or anything.

Bug Verification IssuesEdit

Hey, Bleep. This isn't a talk page thing, but it's still something we need to look at. Almost all the bugs listed on the following pages are listed as overdue. (Caravan (game), Dead Money bugs, and The Pitt bugs.) What seems to have happened is these bugs never went through the verification process but remained on those pages anyway. Once they were tagged for verification, nobody verified them, and thus we have this problem on our hands. We should technically remove them due to policy, but I feel it would be ridiculous to throw them all away. I suggest we extend their verification time a while longer. Any other ideas? 69.l25 (talk) 08:29, February 10, 2014 (UTC)

It seems that we have abandoned the idea of a combined "moderator" request in favour of just labelling someone who has separately attained chat-moderator and patroller rights as a "moderator." So actual "moderator" requests don't exist any more, and the position is just a title showing that a user has both chat moderator and patroller rights. On another note, how have you been doing? It's been awhile since we've spoken. --Skire (talk) 17:45, March 14, 2014 (UTC)

Bug categories Edit

I was able to add the hidden Category:Articles with verified bugs to the verify template. You will only see this category on articles if you have "Show hidden categories" selected in your preferences. Hope this helps with your bug project. The Gunny  UserGunny chevrons 02:33, March 16, 2014 (UTC)

Anon IP Edit

Hello fellow administrator! I'd like to implement a script from the Open Source Wiki that allows the Wikia Contributor designation to be replaced with their IP address on forums, recent changes, etc. This would be set so that only administrators would have this script enabled, and I'd like feedback to see if this is something we should implement. Leave your thoughts on my talkpage. Thanks! --TwoBearsHigh-Fiving Intercom01 05:13, April 7, 2014 (UTC)


You talkin' 'bout the pages listed on Special:Wantedpages? If so, if it's a template that it links to you can check to see if anything even uses the template. If not, you can probably delete the template. Beware, do not delete any article creation templates or anything with FO4 links. Perhaps you could just make a list of the templates in question and I can take a look at them when I get a chance. The Gunny  UserGunny chevrons 00:32, May 9, 2014 (UTC)

Those red links are there for example purposes, and are not an issue. If the red links really bother people too much, which they should not, then I would advise the use of the nowiki tags as well as colourizing the words in question red, to reinstate the importance used to draw the reader's eye. ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 13:14, May 9, 2014 (UTC)
Also, as a side-note, those templates are not to be deleted. They were voted in by the community, and when I return to editing, I already have plans in place to get those templates circulated into regular use by our editors. ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 13:20, May 9, 2014 (UTC)
I understand the confusion, since those are vague stepping stone templates. If the red links ever become a problem, please let me know. ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 16:57, May 9, 2014 (UTC)

Oliver's rifleEdit

The equip command isn't specifically mentioned in the first place, so I didn't really see the point of adding how to unequip it. Console commands is linked, that would be enough in this case. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 15:53, June 19, 2014 (UTC)

Re: BugsEdit

Thanks for the message but I think Chad got a bit confused :P What I was wondering about was how we handle overdue citations (see Operation: Sunburst). I had wondered a bit about overdue bugs before though. JASPER//"Do you like hurting other people?"UserRichard 13:38, July 20, 2014 (UTC)

Wiki navigationEdit

Hey that's weird. Our Wiki-navigation hasn't changed. I checked the Elder Scrolls wiki, they don't have a problem. I'll send Wikia an e-mail about it. Needs to be changed back asap. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 19:17, August 10, 2014 (UTC)

Yes, just after I sent you a message it was ok again. I was wondering maybe Wikia fiddled with it, adding the Special:Maps to the menu. I can't recall seeing it before. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 19:22, August 10, 2014 (UTC)
I don't know. For every game you can use some kind of map I think, if you are creative... Doesn't always have to be a location. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 19:28, August 10, 2014 (UTC)

Bug Edit

Hi, do you remember how did you trigger that specific bug in Fallout 3 : "It is possible when exploring Little Lamplight prior to initiating this quest that the Reactor Chamber door which is normally locked will be unlocked. This allows the person to explore Vault 87 and even acquire the G.E.C.K. (or two), Fawkes, and the Enclave ambush. Quest completion and achievement follow suit. [verified]" on the page.

You were the one who verified it, I know it's been a while, so you probably forget about it, but I'm a speedrunner of the game, and that bug could be really interesting to reproduce. Thanks in advance !

Merry Christmas and a happy new yearEdit

I would like to use the Christmas-wishes-tradition to thank those around me who kept this wiki and daily life more fun for me during the past year. Everything just seems so normal and evident that we are here almost every day, yet it's very worthwhile to consider for a moment how wonderful it is to have all of you around me, making editing and being on chat a lot more enjoyable. I would also like to use this opportunity to wish a happy and healthy new year for you and everyone around you, with perseverance in tough times, but most of all, with wonderful moments among enjoyable friends and family. Merry Christmas, and a very happy new year in which all your wishes may come true! - Greets Peace'n Hugs (talk) (blog) 17:50, December 25, 2014 (UTC)

I have called a vote to remove a number of our admins and moderators on grounds of lack of presence or activity on the wiki. As you are one of them you have one week to make your case before the vote opens. JASPER//"Do you like hurting other people?"UserRichard 18:48, April 27, 2015 (UTC)


Doesn't really help, you made use of the existing category structure plan there, once set up by Porter I believe. We use it everywhere. It's a very good one, but now we're dealing with something new lower in the category structure and it will probably need some discussion. Good to see you working on those pages with overdue bugs, those red text notifications really "bug(ged)" me :) Jspoel Speech Jspoel 15:41, May 7, 2015 (UTC)

Sure, more eyes and minds see more. Ideas are welcome! Jspoel Speech Jspoel 15:51, May 7, 2015 (UTC)
Check out our talkpages to become informed. What it comes down to is having pages in a multiple categories in the same branch structure. So for example Amata is in the Fallout 3 characters category as well as the category directly below it in the structure, Fallout 3 human characters. People are now saying that's redundant. I'm not convinced yet. In Fallout: New Vegas Tocinoman blanked the Fallout: New Vegas characters category for that reason. Now we are sort of in the middle what to do. It can also apply to other categories. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 14:22, May 14, 2015 (UTC)


I can't. Don't you know these kind of listing are refreshed/cleared by Wikia servers each day around midnight American time? You should know that as an admin. Next time if you categorize, don't forget to add the license to the images. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 20:40, May 26, 2015 (UTC)


It was just on a forum and not too severe. The mitigating circumstances made me decide to make it 1 day. If it would have been an article, I would have given 3. - Greets Peace'n Hugs (talk) (blog) 17:11, May 28, 2015 (UTC)

Town HappyEdit

Don't categorize everything as a <game> town category. You can see in several existing location categories that they already don't have the overarching category Towns, which means they neither should be in the <game> town category. And I wouldn't categorize the vaults as a town. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 19:55, May 31, 2015 (UTC)

Looks reasonable ok to me all in all. Found a few though that are a bit on the edge, if they should be classified as a town or not. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 20:00, May 31, 2015 (UTC)

Block on the anonEdit

I wouldn't have blocked that anon for that comment, just delete it. Try to see it in perspective. He waited for years for a new game, and today is great excitement all around. Peace's comment was a bit of a misplaced link I think, which could provoke such a comment. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 19:32, June 2, 2015 (UTC)

Yeah, the comment is fine in my opinion. And I wouldn't say mine was misplaced, I mean, I especially switched to that account to differ it from the news bringing source. - Greets Peace'n Hugs (talk) (blog) 19:37, June 2, 2015 (UTC)

Greetings Edit

Thanks! It feels good to be back. Hopefully I can start to become more active again. I know with Fallout 4 coming out, you guys will need all the help you can get. I'm still in school at the moment, but when summer comes around, I will try and be more active. I just have to try and get back into things. A lot has changed since I was last active and I'm incredibly rusty when it comes to editing. I will have to look back over all the rules or maybe just ask questions in the chat and what not. Like I said, hopefully I'll be able to stick around and help out. ट्रेलरपार्कप्रिमाते टॉक पेज 16:44, June 3, 2015 (UTC)

Your notesEdit

I'd lose the note about the bugs on my forum. The forum is related to the trailer, and not the game, which is many months away. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 17:30, June 12, 2015 (UTC)

E3 Nominee Edit

Heya :) Hope you've been enjoying the E3 coverage of Fallout — and all those other games. Just wanted to drop by and let you know — so you could pass on the info to other admin and users — that Fallout 4 is one of the five finalists in the E3 Game of Show competition! As such, I've added a tiny banner in the right rail of the front page. If you click it, you'll go to the E3 voting page. Hopefully, you'll be able to enourage people to vote so that Fallout 4 can win!

And don't worry: the banner isn't a permanent fixture. It's only going to be around for a bit less than 48 hours. Thanks!

My take on the movesEdit

You are probably removing all those pages from the Fallout 3 location categories as a result of the Fallout 3 character forum decisions or agreements in chat. For what it's worth, I don't agree with removing the locations from the Fallout <game> locations category (or similar). Although they are also in a lower category, they should stay for the overview for the Wikia app. Now for example, marked locations like the broadcast towers can't be even seen in the main category. You have to locate them way down in a subcategory. No one's going to do that. We are deconstructing the use of our categories this way. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 14:51, July 3, 2015 (UTC)

This site is seriously not mobile friendly... using firefox app for android on galaxy s3 all attempts to visit on mobile page resulted in an advertisement that covered full page but was blank. and attempts to close advert would redirect to a twitter page... managed to get page to load with request desktop page.... frustrating.... typically would just give up and find a other source of info for this type of issue but decided to take a little time to try to find a work around and then now to address this problem to you.... hope you get this fixed20:47, September 17, 2015 (UTC)`

Portable infoboxes Edit

Heya :) Just stopping by to see if you have any thoughts on the Portable infobox project that Shining-Armor started up a little while ago. Because of Fallout's obvious importance to Wikia, particularly as we approach the launch of Fallout 4, we'd like to make sure that all your infoboxes are as accessible by mobile devices as is possible. Please drop by the forum as soon as you can and give your views. And of course my user talk page is always open to whatever comments — even rude ones — that you'd like to make!

Fallout 4 images is a main category, not one to put Fallout 4 images in. Mind your categorizing (Mama Murphy does not belong in Fallout character images). Jspoel Speech Jspoel 17:08, November 8, 2015 (UTC)

Edits Edit

Thanks for the welcome. Can't actually play the game at work so I'm venting my frustration by editing the articles for all the weapons I'd like to be finding. :) --Alpha219 (talk) 17:14, November 13, 2015 (UTC)

I found the contact button for the website and sent them this letter: On this page, under Contents, there is a tab, with all of the links that go to all of the different articles of importance.

I wanted to add a heading for Settlements, and a direct link to this settlements page

directly above the "SPECIAL" section because the top categories to the links are in alphabetical order.

I feel that the settlements should be easier to find rather than digging through 3 layers to get to that link, because it is a major new feature of the game, and that top layer is where all the new players start.

Unfortunately, i have diddly and squat of editing abilities, so please, would you make this happen? Thank you for your time. New player of Fallout4, and big user of this wiki for all my other fallout games, Trish :)

Anyhoo, They said that they're the support for wikia and i should go to a link for some admins and ask them. (that's the link they gave)

I couldnt figure out who i was supposed to ask. So i apologize if i have the wrong person. I honestly dont know exactly what i'm doing, just where i'm roughly aiming :)

Thank you for your time :)

IP address completely deleted the page General atomics galleria and replaced it with something that said Hi Chookies. I replaced the page to how it was. Just thought you should know. Thanks -Greg

New user is posting videos everywhere Edit

Not sure if this is the correct place to report this, but User:Syrvan is uploading and posting videos to lots of random pages, I assume for easy views. None of them are pages which benefit from having a video, in my opinion. Tiwuno (talk) 17:07, November 27, 2015 (UTC)

Then notable content template isn't shuffling the entries, that's the rotating content template. You will always see the same 5 entries at the top of the bug list, so there should be no confusion. I've started using the template because the bugs sections can take way too much room, so a max of 5 entries is a good alternative, though I still very much would like to see those red overdue links gone as much as possible, they're rather annyoing and let the page look unfinished. I'm always glad to see you work on verifying those. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 17:11, April 29, 2016 (UTC)

Community NewsEdit

Negative. Community News can only accomodate blogs, as it uses a blogroll.

The News Digest is in the process of being replaced with a live News page. It is somewhat more flexible in what it can carry.

If you create a blog, and add it to category:community news, it will appear in that blogroll.

Agent c (talk) 22:29, June 19, 2016 (UTC)

I've been working on the Live news Page some more. Your forum is now a source doc for an article. You can see it under Wiki news.
If you want to control exactly what appears from your forum on the page, you'll see your forum now includes some "noinclude" tags. Anything within those noinclude tags will NOT be displayed. If you'd rather use a blog for the source, let me know and I'll show you how the backpages work.
I'm hoping (somewhat against hope) I might be ready to launch on the weekend, it is mostly a content issue now (although I still need Melo to do the masthead). Agent c (talk) 23:32, June 21, 2016 (UTC)
