FOOL forum Edit

Sure, fine with me. I think we could generally split the spin-offs forum into forums for each individual game (FOT, FOBOS, FOOL) and also make one for VB. It's not like forum space is limited, and while each forum might not see much use individually, the games are different enough to warrant an own forum for each. VB isn't really covered by any forum at all, which results threads about it to partially end up in spin-offs discussion (where they don't belong as VB is not a spin-off) or Fallout world discussion (where they don't belong either). -- Porter21 (talk) 07:43, June 18, 2010 (UTC)

Also fine with me :) -- Porter21 (talk) 07:53, June 18, 2010 (UTC)
On second thought, maybe it would be better to include FOT2 and FOBOS2 in the forums for FOT/FOBOS and simply call the last forum "Other Fallout games discussion" or something. -- Porter21 (talk) 08:21, June 18, 2010 (UTC)
Sounds good. That way discussion about the series as a whole and e.g. FO4 threads can be put there as well. -- Porter21 (talk) 08:43, June 18, 2010 (UTC)

Fallout New Vegas Developer Walkthrough and E3 2010 Stage Demo: Fallout - New Vegas [Gamespot] Edit

part one

part two

E3 2010 Stage Demo: Fallout - New Vegas [Gamespot]

Fixed width Edit

Will we be able to choose whether we want it on or not in our preferences? Tezzla blah blah blah 15:57, June 18, 2010 (UTC)

Winchester P94 Plasma Rifle Edit

Hello Ausir =) !

I'm wondering for a while. Do you really think that the Plasma Rifle in Fallout 1-2 and Fallout Tactics are not the same ? The description in-game is exactly the same, the charger as the same capacity and its damage is almost like, instead of 30-65 is 35-60.

Personally, I don't see any difference, either in-game or out-game. Itachou [~talk~] 22:07, June 18, 2010 (UTC)

News in Spanish Edit

Hello Ausir, I'am Lugamo and I don't know speak English and I soy an admin de El Refugio, the version (very poor) in Spanish of The Vault. The question is ¿You can traslate your news into to Spanish? and I can, ¿You know como suscribe me a your blog? --Lugamo(discusión) 00:48, June 19, 2010 (UTC)

mr h Edit

ye i know but maybe this is a lie he uses to cover up the fact that he is a ghoul by the way will there be any ghouls living in new vegas thks :]

Block this person Edit

Block FeralOverlord. Tezzla blah blah blah 15:32, June 19, 2010 (UTC)

Moving trouble Edit

Can you please contact wikia to get rid of the thing stopping you from moving too many articles in a short time? It's really annoying because i'm moving articles because of the new policies and i can't. Tezzla blah blah blah 18:37, June 21, 2010 (UTC)

Digest Edit

Maybe the new navboxes? That'd be the only thing coming to my mind right now. By the way, I think the portals (especially the main page) will need a couple of adjustments because of the fixed width; some of them look a little crowded. While I'm at it, what do you think about changing them (and the forums) to the color scheme used by the new navboxes? I think we could also replace the "Contents" section of the main page with another batch of image buttons ("games", "setting", "SPECIAL", "locations", "items", "developers" etc). -- Porter21 (talk) 14:12, June 23, 2010 (UTC)

Oops, just noticed I completely missed your last digest where you already covered the navboxes. In my defense, I was away for a few days and only got back yesterday :)
Anyway, I've changed the forums to the new design and will hopefully get around to changing the portals as well later today. If/when you post a new digest, could you ask people whether someone would be up for creating those image buttons? I'm not the most image-editing-savvy person in the world, and help would be appreciated. Of course, we'd have to decide what subjects we need buttons for first.
Finally, as a result of the fixed width, the page bar on a couple of pages is expanding to two lines, at least for admins (e.g. talk pages). Not sure what to do about that though. -- Porter21 (talk) 14:46, June 24, 2010 (UTC)
Should be done with updating the portals (other than adding the image buttons). The TOCs look a little crammed, but I haven't been able to come up with a solution I like yet. -- Porter21 (talk) 19:02, June 24, 2010 (UTC)

My Page Edit

Please protect my user page. It is very annoying because this is the 4th time this week it has been vandalised. Tezzla blah blah blah 15:59, June 23, 2010 (UTC)

Help Ausir!!!! Edit

Hey Ausir can you please help me with my new wiki page Future Games please this is my first time and your famous for these kind of things and other people who would like to help please go to thank you for your time. —Preceding unsigned comment added by President Niko (talkcontribs).

Twinkysexorange Edit

Dear administrator I come to you for help. I do this anonymously because one of your fellow admistrtors(Gothemasticator) thought i had a bad account name(Twinkysexisorange). Its my cats name...and hes orange, its a inside joke but still I dont think this is right. I do not know how to check messages without an account so if you reply and I do not please reply to me at Thank You. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs). Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

Hello Twinkysexorang please stop using my Help Ausir!! page to send messages to Ausir thank you. —Preceding unsigned comment added by President Niko (talkcontribs). Please sign your posts with ~~~~!
"Twink" is common slang for transexual. That, coupled with "sex" is what led me to label the name as unacceptable. Intentional or not, "Twinkysexisorange" has a good probability of giving offense.--Gothemasticator 14:55, June 24, 2010 (UTC)
Well, that discussion devolved quickly. You can read the end of it on my now-archived talk page. I have blocked the user's IP address now, in addition to the specific user name.--Gothemasticator 23:34, June 24, 2010 (UTC)

Sandbox? Edit

hey, Ausir, how do you create your own personal Sandbox? Atomic Sparkz 16:21, June 24, 2010 (UTC)

Regarding Tezzla Admin Vote Edit

I have an idea. You could always make Tezzla a temporary administrator from now into a few months after the release of New Vegas. After those few months, you could re-evaluate him and see if he deserves the admin-ship he is seeking. Just an idea. TrailerParkApe 06:53, June 25, 2010 (UTC)

idea for fnv gun Edit

I know it is most likely too late to add it, but it would be awesome if one of the weapons was the AR-7. I could see any smart ranger or soldier having one just in case. If you had their ear , I thought you could tell them. Good guy with the guns 02:42, June 27, 2010 (UTC)Good guy with the guns

FOBOS Character Edit

I stumbled upon Armpit while looking through the content portal for FOBOS. It bothers me that the article is name Armpit when his real name, Arnold, is actually known. Do you think it should be moved to "Arnold"? And yes, I have considered that the in-game use of his name probably is only Armpit like how Milo, shipping foreman is the name of the article only because the game refers to him like that in FO3. You would seem to know best in this situation. :) Ghouly89 (Talk) 05:04, June 27, 2010 (UTC)

Finally ! Edit

Hello my friend =) !

Finally, all weapons of Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel have had listed on The Vault ! Itachou [~talk~] 19:57, June 27, 2010 (UTC)

videos Edit

how do you upload videos on here Redneckfalloutboy 05:17, June 28, 2010 (UTC)

Megaton Inhabitant Bug Edit

Do you know the bug where if you start killing people in Megaton, sometimes there weapons will be outside their hnad and they cannot use it? Would that go under the Megaton page, or under each person the glitch affects? Mycatisorange 13:04, June 28, 2010 (UTC)

Level 2 headlines Edit

Do you know whether it's intentional that the gray line is now above level 2 headlines (instead of below)? Just wondering whether it's a bug or whether it's something we'd need to consider "fixing" ourselves (at least I don't like it much). Looks like a bug to me, but you can never be sure I guess... -- Porter21 (talk) 19:17, June 30, 2010 (UTC)

Never mind, seems to have been fixed. -- Porter21 (talk) 23:49, June 30, 2010 (UTC)

Template:Games Edit

I seem to recall we had a chat about how to handle pages with a lot of game icons; I guess we need to reopen this discussion because it has become somewhat more pronounced due to the fixed width (see super mutant, for example). My suggestion would be to only display a max of, say, 6 icons - if more than that are specified, a "more" symbol would appear instead of additional icons. If clicking/hovering over that symbol, a small box with all specified icons would appear. What do you think? -- Porter21 (talk) 15:56, July 2, 2010 (UTC)

I'll start working on the modifications to {{Games}} then as soon as I have a bit of free time. -- Porter21 (talk) 11:34, July 13, 2010 (UTC)
I've taken a simpler approach which doesn't require JavaScript. Let me know whether it's OK. -- Porter21 (talk) 14:34, July 16, 2010 (UTC)

Adminship requests Edit

Regarding Tezzla's adminship request, the thread pretty much reflects my opinion on his request; he's certainly dedicated but I don't think he's "there" yet, mostly because of activities like posting messages on vandal talk pages or feeding the trolls in blog comments, and lack of familiarity with things like categorization (while he has improved in that regard, he's still prone to creating pages with wrong categories or no categories at all). Plus the frequently used argument of "when FNV comes around we'll need as many admins as possible" isn't really an argument in favour of any single admin candidate in my book; we may as well make everyone an admin if we follow that line of thought. With the release of FNV coming closer, more and more "old hands" are showing up again (e.g. Itachou or Sentinel), so that further voids that argument in my opinion.

Concerning a fixed time between adminship requests, I agree. It's not like things are prone to change drastically within a few days, and even if they did, the voters need a bit of time to evaluate the persistance of any change a candidate might have undergone. Maybe something along 3 months (the initial qualifying period) or a bit shorter? -- Porter21 (talk) 11:34, July 13, 2010 (UTC)
Two months sounds fine to me; three is indeed a bit long probably. -- Porter21 (talk) 11:40, July 13, 2010 (UTC)
I've gone ahead and made some changes to FW:ADMIN. Let me know if you disagree with them :) -- Porter21 (talk) 07:18, July 15, 2010 (UTC)
Also, could you post the "final verdict" for Tezzla's request? I posted the ones for the last few requests, don't want to appear like some kind of dictator :P -- Porter21 (talk) 07:44, July 15, 2010 (UTC)

Help required with Fallout 3 Edit

I guess you're the best person to be asking this. If you cant help me then please redirect me to someone you think who can.

I love Fallout 3 and recently got the GOTY version. I have started a new game. What I want to do is comepletely utilize the DLC to improve the non DLC quest.

Let me state an example. As you know, the DLC has rasied the level cap to 30. I saw the message as soon as I stepped out of Vault 101 for the first time. What I want to know is what are the other things that have been added to the main or sub quests (non DLC play) .

'I want to enjoy the non DLC game play with differences and addditio'ns and then move on to DLCs.\

2. The second thing I want to know is that apart from weapons and perks, what are the other things that are added to the main game after finishing each DLC. This is the more important part. If you can point out some resource which lists all the additions to the main game after completing each DLC, I will be most thankful.

People to add Edit

Heyy Ausir? could it be possible for me to make a page for people to type down their PSN, Gamertag or Steam so you could add them? I would like to make the page so people could add others and ask for help or play games online. Mr. Fallout 08:52, July 9, 2010 (UTC)

how many people are in the BoS? Edit

i was reading that the Brotherhood of steel is declining, well what does that mean? how many were in it in Fo 1 and 2? 18:53, July 12, 2010 (UTC) Thanks for your help !

Miss launcher Edit

Well, I thought the same for Xuanlong assault rifle and The Terrible Shotgun. I think that they could go either way, because it's just a proper name added onto a noun, unlike something like Protectron's Gaze. I'll move it back for now. Nitty Tok. 01:19, July 13, 2010 (UTC)

Alright then; sounds good.
Do we capitalize gatling laser? It was the only one I had problems with for the F1 and F2 navboxes. Nitty Tok. 01:23, July 13, 2010 (UTC)
Thanks! Nitty Tok. 01:25, July 13, 2010 (UTC)

vengaence Edit

hay shoud the Locationsand soem informashen of the vemgaence be under the gatling laser page, i mean it is a unique and very powerful gatling laser. MrDot01 05:28, July 13, 2010 (UTC)

dogmeat Edit

why is fallout 3 dog meat not with the other dogmeat, im geussing its becouse in fallout 1 and 2 it was the same dogmeat. i got a nother ? on that (you proble cant anwser) back when i was little and played fallout 1 and 2 i thought it was a little strang that when my dogmeat in fallout 1 died that he then poped up in fallout 2, that was not really a ? MrDot01 05:41, July 13, 2010 (UTC)

Bye Edit

Thanks for everything Ausir, you have a great wiki here, but I'm not going to contribute to a site that bans particular people from posting on forums just because another user posted there. I don't see how arguments on forum pages are reason enough to restrict users from posting on forums, but thats what one of your admins has done. See ya! Ishotamaninnewreno 10:11, July 13, 2010 (UTC)

Ishotamaninnewreno Edit

I can't really claim that I've followed the whole episode, but I think Goth was simply trying to break up a squabble which has been going on for a while in blog comments, forum threads and talk page posts. From what I gathered, it revolves around MrDot's spelling deficiencies and the patronising/insulting manner in which he responds to people. Ishotamaninnewreno isn't the only one involved either; as far as I remember, Grizzly was originally part of it as well.

I understand why Goth decided the way he did; probably he was trying to make a judgement of Solomon in order to simply put an end to the argument. Maybe I'd rather simply have banned MrDot since he seems to be the one instigating all the arguments, but I haven't been following the whole thing closely enough to really judge this. In terms of contributions, I guess there's no question who's more valuable to the wiki if push comes to shove, although I'm not sure whether we should base decisions on that. -- Porter21 (talk) 12:26, July 13, 2010 (UTC)

Naturally, more well-known users receive more benefit of doubt. My point was more that if there's an argument between someone new and someone who's been around for a while, I'd still look at the case in question first and not simply side with the more "established" or "valuable" user by default. Was more of a general remark, not really related to this particular argument. -- Porter21 (talk) 17:51, July 13, 2010 (UTC)

Achievements Edit

Well, I guess you know my concerns in that regard (spamming etc). I've seen a couple of instances on Red Dead Wiki which seem to confirm that, but that could admittedly be attributed to me looking for those instances in the first place. On the other hand, it seems like the badges are popular with some people (probably the same people who like achievements; guess that's why I can't relate to it :P). All in all, I wouldn't oppose having the badges; I'd be happy to let the community decide whether it wants them or not.

I agree that if we add them, we should decide on the customizations first. -- Porter21 (talk) 12:26, July 13, 2010 (UTC)

By the way, I'm not sure I like the new "sponsored links" appearing as if they were part of the article... -- Porter21 (talk) 12:30, July 13, 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, as I said I'm happy to go with whatever the community decides. Regarding the "sponsored links", it'll likely be hard to ad-block them since they are set up like a valid article section - I guess it just irks me that readers are misled into thinking the ads are part of the article content. I understand the necessity of ads in general, I just thought a clear separation of ads and article content was part of Wikia's ad policy. Oh well, just wanted to mention it, I know you can't do anything about it :) -- Porter21 (talk) 17:51, July 13, 2010 (UTC)
They are only shown if you're logged out. There's an "article section" (normal level 2 headline) called "External Sponsored Links" at the end of pretty much every article then; the only difference to a real article section is that it doesn't show up in the TOC. -- Porter21 (talk) 18:05, July 13, 2010 (UTC)

IGN's most anticipated Edit

New Vegas is #1

You sound like Grizzly Edit

We could build a statue and leave it on your own page, if you want to. Nitty Tok. 15:48, July 16, 2010 (UTC)

Comments about "help me ausir" Edit

Excuse me, oh mighty Ausir, but that's pretty rude. Even if someone is rude (or trolling), that dosen't give you the right to call them stupid. Nukey (talk) (blog) 19:47, July 16, 2010 (UTC)

It's still rude. Even if it is stupid, you don't need to say it. Nukey (talk) (blog) 20:04, July 16, 2010 (UTC)

sigh Edit

i know it's hard to believe, but i guess i don't blame you for not believing me. everyone's a troll these days. at least i can say i tried, but i guess i should have known better to use the internet for advice. if you want i'll delete this account once i find out how.

Help me ausir 05:50, July 17, 2010 (UTC)help

Re: sigh Edit

very well then, sorry to have bothered you. i think i found a way to delete the account, apparently it's going to send a message to a staff member of this wiki and they can lock me out or something

Weapons 'contradict canon' ?? Edit

Just wondering on some of the side-games of fallout like Fallout: Tactics, the weapons all say at the top of there page 'This might contradict canon'. Just wondering on how a weapon might contradict canon. Thanks. Bot2345 16:47, July 18, 2010 (UTC)

E-mail Edit

Sent an eMail to your gmail account. -- Porter21 (talk) 07:17, July 19, 2010 (UTC)

Infobox icons in chrome Edit

Yeah, the infobox icons have display issues in both Chrome and Internet Explorer (in IE, the title will not make full use of the available space for the title if an icon is present, leading to "premature" line breaks). It's due to the "creative" way the header was set up in the template. I'll see whether I can fix it; it should be fixed for {{Infobox new}} in either case, so it'll go away as soon as that template goes live. -- Porter21 (talk) 17:52, July 20, 2010 (UTC)

Should be fixed now. -- Porter21 (talk) 18:12, July 20, 2010 (UTC)

Hi Ausir! (HEX-EDIT GUY) Edit

Hi again, I don't know if you remember me but For some time ago I asked you if I could write down a hex-edit tut but and you replied with another Fallout Wiki site. You called it The Vaults Sister. And about 3-4 months ago I wrote down how to obtain the winterized chinese jumpsuit on the xbox 360, so yes it was a tut how to get through hex-editing but I didn't learn how to hex-edit. But here is the question anyway: Why is that info removed? Did it contain an illegal tut or? I just personally think it's a bit sad that someone removed that info but i'm just wondering why? //JN

help please Edit

could ausir or someone that knows alot about the fallouts answer me some stuff please, firstly, im having trouble getting the epic feel for fnv. Because in fo3 it felt so epic because everything was destroyed and you felt epic being the last one there roamning around in the sunset, looking at the crushed buiildings and stuff. In New Vegas, will it have this feeling? Because since new vegas wasnt bombed wont you just be walking from town to town in this game, because nothing was destroyed? Another thing ill have trouble getting used to is the fact that its in the desert. Washington D.C was epic because there was destroyed baseball fields and it gave u that really gloomy feeling, but in new vegas how can they integrate something like this into the game, because since its all desert they can just put a town or something in the middle of no where. I also need the full story on what happened here, because from the screenshots I don't get why some of the towns are boarded up and stuff, because if no bombs hit them, wouldn't life have just gone off as normal?

The thing I loved most about fo3 was how it pulled you into this dark gloomy ironic world, but I just dont see how ill be getting that feeling for fnv. Because I will just be walking through the desert from town to town without any crumpled buildings to explore or any sort of life to encounter. Just little things in fo3 like the billboards advertising the vaults and stuff were awesome, but how will they put stuff like this into New vegas? Since its a desert? Sorry for the long post, but every time I go to preorder the CE edition of this game all these things come up in my head, and its really annoying, thanks in advance to anyone that can help :(

News Edit

Shouldnt you make a little icon to PURGE the news thingo on the mainpage so if there's new news you dont have to wait a while for the news to come up? Matt of the wastes 02:59, July 22, 2010 (UTC)

and shouldn't we make a 'fallout answers' wiki so people can ask questions and people like me and you can answer them? i can set one up if you like? Matt of the wastes 03:03, July 22, 2010 (UTC)

Going inactiveEdit

I am going inactive for the indefinite future. For months now, I really haven't had time for more than patrolling the recent changes page, and my time has become more limited yet again. Ausir, you've got a great wiki here. Thanks for all your work. Cheers.--Gothemasticator 15:41, July 22, 2010 (UTC)

Thanks. I hope I do return. All the best in the meantime.--Gothemasticator 20:13, July 22, 2010 (UTC)

FOT and FOBOS Edit

Hello my friend !

Really ? It sounds quite strange to them to make games on their universe and make it non-canon. Where did you see that ? Knowing you, I think you're right but I'd like to see, just like that =). Itachou [~talk~] 10:54, July 27, 2010 (UTC)

Thank you for these details my friend, you are always a wonderful source of information, even for me who is familiar with Fallout. Good day and take care of you =) ! Itachou [~talk~] 11:04, July 27, 2010 (UTC)

Edit count number Edit

The big one in the upper-right hand corner, where did it go? YuriKaslov 10:22, July 28, 2010 (UTC)

Enclave2.0.pdf Edit

Should we keep File:Enclave2.0.pdf? It's been Category:nominated for deletion for ages since it's unused, and I thought we do not cover the setting of Jason Mical's game. In any case, I think that file would rather belong on the PnP wiki, not here - what do you think? -- Porter21 (talk) 09:37, July 29, 2010 (UTC)

Local sister wikis Edit

For a while, I've been pondering how we could make our localized sister wikis easier share our skin. The skins of the local Vaults are in various stages of disrepair/ugliness, depending on when they last copied our CSS and whether Wikia made design changes/added new features afterwards.

So, instead of copying our Monaco.css to theirs, I'd suggest they simply import our Monaco.css and Monobook.css, maybe also our Common.css if they use a lot of our templates. This way they'll automatically profit from any updates to our skin. They could still override our styles locally if they so wish; basically it works similar to shared uploads.

To do that, they'd have to use the following CSS in the respective MediaWiki pages (basically, you can replace whatever they previously copied from us with it). All of these have to be added at the very top of that page so it can be overriden locally.

Where to insert What to insert
/* Import CSS of English Vault */
@import "";

/* Show dynamic linkbox */
#link_box_dynamic ul {
   display: block;
/* Import CSS of English Vault */
@import "";
/* Import CSS of English Vault */
@import "";

If they do not want the fixed width skin, the following bit needs to be added below the "@import" code:

Where to insert What to insert
/* No fixed width */
.monaco_shrinkwrap {
   width: auto !important;

Now unto the reason(s) why I'm bothering you with this. First of all, what do you think of it? Second, could you maybe ask the local communities whether they'd want this? You're usually better known than me at the local wikis, and I'm going to be away until mid-August, so I couldn't reply to any questions they might have until then. -- Porter21 (talk) 09:37, July 29, 2010 (UTC)

Good point. I'll tinker with it a bit (unfortunately, there's no easy to reset our current style in that regard) and update the code bits later. -- Porter21 (talk) 10:00, July 29, 2010 (UTC)
Updated. -- Porter21 (talk) 10:35, July 29, 2010 (UTC)
Updated CSS for undoing fixed width above as I've changed the CSS for establishing it. Might be of interest to you that the "standard" CSS for fixed width, i.e. negative left margin combined with moving to half screen size from the left, has some issues if the browser window is less than 975px wide (at least occasionally - I haven't bothered to narrow it down further). The site navigation gradually wanders off-screen the smaller you make the window, eventually disappearing (and you can't even scroll to get it back). I've exchanged it with CSS rules which do not cause this problem. -- Porter21 (talk) 04:18, July 30, 2010 (UTC)

New website article on FNV Edit

Hi Ausir, willooi here. I'm a long time reader of this wiki - great job! - and found a new F:NV article from Gamasutra which you might like to add to the news section. An interview with Feargus about Fallout returning to some of the old Black Isle staff, a good read!

Dogmeat's Broken Steel Leveling... glitch? Edit

You probably know that with Broken Steel installed, Dogmeat is supposed gain a reasonable amount of health each time the player levels up starting at level 20, but if you find Dogmeat after installing Broken Steel, he will essentially be indestrucatble (regardless of your level). under these circumstances, Dogmeat (by level 15) will be able to kill just about anything from entire towns to mutliple supermutant overlords, some behemoths, albino radscorpions, you name it, without any help from the player. This also causes all enemies to focus on Dogmeat and not the player, as Dogmeat is seen as a more significant threat (being invincible), which basically eliminates all challenge from the game's combat. By level 20, Dogmeat will be able to survive roughly 13-15 (probably more) direct fatman shots, while the player even at level thirty generally can't survive 1. The reason I'm explaining this all to you is because I'm wondering if you would consider this a glitch, or if you think Dogmeat's invincibility was intended by the developers?

where did this silly info come from? Edit

I read that the tri-beam laser rifle is the new standard weapon of the BoS. Thats what the page for the weapon said. I know the game is yet to be released but this info had to have come from somewhere. Where was this fact read, or was it forged in the depths of hell just to aggravate readers of the vault? These must be the shenigains of a bad editor? Who told the page creator this? 03:28, August 7, 2010 (UTC)anon

People are saying that because of a screenshot that was shown on Gametrailers TV a couple weeks back from FO: New Vegas. The screenshot showed the New Vegas BoS in T-51b Power Armor and with Tri-beam laser rifles. See it here: (Skip ahead to chapter 3). But does this screenshot mean that it's the new standard weapon of the BoS? (I personally doubt it) B2tg 04:54, August 7, 2010 (UTC)

Thanks the video was pretty intense. Good find, thanks for the reply.

No problem, glad to help.B2tg 01:47, August 9, 2010 (UTC)

Articles Edit

I will keep that in mind for next time. I was thinking about cutting it down, but I thought that all of that was somewhat important. But, next time for sure I'll keep it mind. TrailerParkApe 19:16, August 11, 2010 (UTC)

Thank you Ausir for fixing my article. :) TrailerParkApe 19:27, August 11, 2010 (UTC)

Videogalleries Edit

I'm not familiar with how to get a video gallery to work. Care to inform me? ;) Ghouly89 (Talk) 23:55, August 11, 2010 (UTC)

Hey Aus, Madnessreaver replied to my question:

The other guy didn't, apparently he doesn't care. That's two high-edit-count users in favour of my position. Personal_Sig_Image.gif Tagaziel (call!) 06:56, August 15, 2010 (UTC)


Read this preview and then look at the bottom with links to other previews that havnt been seen (I think) =0

Email Edit

Sure, I'm at

Don't expect replies as of yet, Vista Service Pack 2 is acting up as of late. :/ Nitty Tok. 00:42, August 21, 2010 (UTC)

I hate to sound pushy... Edit

...but I know it's gonna sound that way, so I'll be brief. Do you think you could finalize the adminship request of myself and TrailerParkApe? Thanks. --Kris mailbox 17:29, August 23, 2010 (UTC)

Unity Edit

I don't understand one thing about the east coast super mutans. Do they also possess any glorious view of unity like west coast super mutants? Or do they just want to kill everything? if anybody could help me that would be great especially Ausir, Nitty, or anybody who knows more than me about the fallout universe. Jstarsupreme

News listings Edit

Is there a particular reason why we're not using the "blog" namespace for the various news listings (like The Vault:Fallout news etc)? When using the blog namespace we can take advantage of pagination, which means the page loads faster, and there's not cut-off for the news, i.e. you can view all of them on the page instead of only the latest 50. See Blog:Fallout news for an example. -- Porter21 (talk) 09:24, August 24, 2010 (UTC)

Do you mean the "to display news here, add it to category XYZ" intro text? -- Porter21 (talk) 09:33, August 24, 2010 (UTC)
If we create the blog listings outside the "blog" namespace and then move them over, we can have both pagination and additional text (see Blog:Fallout news now). Modifying the pages requires moving them back and forth, but I don't think that's much of a problem since the listings don't really need to be modified often. What do you think? -- Porter21 (talk) 09:42, August 24, 2010 (UTC)

Ausir jr? Edit

I see a user on here called

Suspected as much, but figured I'd bring it to your attention and let you handle it. --Kris mailbox 16:42, August 24, 2010 (UTC)

Anti-Capitilization Project Edit

Tezzla and I are bringing the Anti-captilization project pretty close to being completed. If you could keep eyes open for articles that we might have missed, since your created the wiki, we'd Be able to finish the project faster. -bleep196- 02:40, August 25, 2010 (UTC)

If you press more, my widgets, and press Top Users, you will see a The Vault top 7 users widget. I should be 4th on it but for some reason i'm not showing up on it. Why? Tezzla CannonUser Tezzla Dog

Vault boy images policy Edit

Hello Ausir =). I'm unfortunately no longer active on The Vault since I'm member of the largest French mod for Fallout 2, EC Paris, still in development.

I would like to know what is the policy for the Vault boy images (perks, traits etc.)

Because it's currently very poorly arrange, those of Fallout 1,2, Tactics and BOS are on white background and white color or with the traditionnal background, and those of Fallout 3 are a transparent background and gray.

I propose that they are all done in white color and white background or white color and transparent background, what do you think my friend ? Itachou [~talk~] 17:21, September 3, 2010 (UTC)

Sig as a template Edit

Could I make a template for my sig? I'm not too clear on this wiki's policies. YuriKaslov 00:42, September 9, 2010 (UTC)

So I name it User:YuriKaslov/Sig? YuriKaslov 00:45, September 9, 2010 (UTC)
Alright. Thanks. YuriKaslov 00:47, September 9, 2010 (UTC)

Slavic languages Edit

Hey there, crazy Vault god Ausir. I'm studying Russian, and was wondering how difficult it is to pick up another slavic language after learning one. Assuming, of course, you know other slavic languages besides Polish....which I'm now realizing I have no evidence for such an assuption. Umm....whats your favortie Mickiewicz poem? BillyOcean 04:23, September 10, 2010 (UTC)

Correct me if im wrong Edit

Hey ausir is it just me or do i recall in an early interview with IGN that you could get a cowboy robot (victor) as a follower or was that my robotic obsession getting the best of me respond soon please sincerly Fryingpan57 03:08, September 11, 2010 (UTC)

hey ausir Edit

every time i post a blog,it doesnt load it ! i tried to put a really important one,i proved that the enclave will be in new vegas ! and its the west coast enclave of course,i found a pic of a west coast enclave trooper in an article at ,i clicked on it and i thought it was just an F3 mod ,but then i noticed the mountains in the background and the yellow-ish landscape ,please put this up,and if you do can you give me credit ? :D heres the link to the pic (comment unsigned)

That was just taken down, it's already been posted and it's not an enclave it's the PC in an old enclave suit.

Jasper: The Wonder that is Shroomman!

yeah sorry bout that,i didn't know it was already posted and i knew in was a PC but then i forgot to mention it and @Ausir well if their is an enclave power armor in New Vegas then that means that there is a trace of the Enclave's presence ,and (i might be wrong ) but the Enclave want to keep the post-apocalyptic wasteland in law of their own perspection,and New Vegas is a pretty big and powerful place so i don't see why the Enclave wouldn't want to place several camps or even huge bases like Raven Rock at New Vegas to try to take it down,after all Sawyer did mention a large number of factions in New Vegas,and the BoS of F3 only wiped out like 95% of the enclave in the east coast

Fallout 3(black isle and bethesda) as well as New Vegas mentioned Edit

An ign article on morality and being able to make "bad" choices in games. Although the parts on Fallout are briefly mentioned.

Questions Edit

Hey, i have noticed you post alot on this wiki, i check it every day and i was wondering if there is anywhere on the site that i can ask a question that everyone can see and answer because i want to know if new vegas will have as many bugs and glitches etc. as fallout 3

Japan and India Edit

They are mentioned. They were on some article. I can't remember what it was as it was a long time back but I'll try and find them. Tezzla CannonUser Tezzla Dog 17:41, September 13, 2010 (UTC)

Year Edit

So it's 2281 now and not 2280? TrailerParkApe Spew 22:31, September 13, 2010 (UTC)

Alrighty, I will help you take care of that. So I guess Larry Liberty was right the whole time! Haha. TrailerParkApe Spew 22:33, September 13, 2010 (UTC)
So it's not just a typo in the book? That's the only place where I've seen 2281 referenced, everything else has said 2280. --Kris User Hola 22:35, September 13, 2010 (UTC)
That makes sense. I guess I can't claim to have seen anything official with 2280 on it. --Kris User Hola 22:40, September 13, 2010 (UTC)
Looks like everything aside from talk pages, blog pages, and forum pages now properly links to 2281. --Kris User Hola 14:08, September 14, 2010 (UTC)

Becoming an Admin Edit

Haha, I contemplated the idea before, but I become much more busy on other wikis.

I started editing a little more today, so if it continues I might apply for adminship before New Vegas comes out. --Anon talk 23:33, September 13, 2010 (UTC)

Hmm, I might just do that, I think I still have my old "Admin request draft" on my computer somewhere :) --Anon talk 23:39, September 13, 2010 (UTC)

Companion names Edit

Like I told Kris, I renamed the companion names because there is no need for them to have really long title pages, and more than likely they will simply be referred to as "Veronica" or "Lily" in game, instead of the surname. TrailerParkApe Spew 22:34, September 15, 2010 (UTC)

Alright, I'll have the people with last names switched back so that their last names are incorporated. TrailerParkApe Spew 22:42, September 15, 2010 (UTC)
What about Cass? She has a bizarre name, how should I put that up? TrailerParkApe Spew 22:44, September 15, 2010 (UTC)
Alright, well you took care of that. Also, instead of Lillian, I made it Lily, if that's alright? TrailerParkApe Spew 22:45, September 15, 2010 (UTC)
Since I was never educated in fixing the double redirects, can you spare a few moments on explaining it to me? TrailerParkApe Spew 22:47, September 15, 2010 (UTC)

Alright, I took care of the double redirects that I spotted with those names. Thanks for helping me out with that! :) TrailerParkApe Spew 22:54, September 15, 2010 (UTC)

Stats Edit

Yup, I know. Same thing with the power fist; the weight is identical but was wrong before, and that was the only difference between the two articles.

I'm actually just concentrating on making the Tactics articles not suck right now, I'll go about fixing the redirect-filled navbox and merging pages later. :P Nitty Tok. 01:11, September 16, 2010 (UTC)

Rich Text Editor Edit

Is there something you can do to give Forum:Rich Text Editor a wider audience? We need more votes on the matter for wikia to do anything. --Kris User Hola 00:59, September 17, 2010 (UTC)

Celebrating the release of Fallout: New Vegas Edit

I have brought up this idea with Nitty and I think you will appreciate it. Basically, I think the background for everyone should be a view of The Strip (Like the view of it from the Mojave wasteland). What do you think about it? Nukey (talk) 01:05, September 17, 2010 (UTC)

I second that motion, for what it's worth. Great idea! Hope you agree Ausir.Vault 815 03:42, September 17, 2010 (UTC)

Modding wiki upload Edit

Alright, question time.

You are familiar with the Fallout Modding Wiki enough to know that it is a piece of work, correct? ;) Well, the uploaded files categorization templates are terrible. I need to manually update them with a few templats from the Vault, but then I have to somehow update the scrool-down list of which correct licencing tags I have now posted. Do you know where on the wiki that information is stored, and can be altered? Thanks, Ghouly89 (Talk) 17:53, September 18, 2010 (UTC)

Rules Edit

Oh, okay. Thanks. Nukey (talk) 23:02, September 19, 2010 (UTC)

Sierra Petrovita's Home Edit

EDIT: Please delete this comment from your page. Apparently the "patch" that fixes Sierra's corpse, giving you her vending machine key, is what adds that cellar behind her house. It isn't there in the default game. My mistake! Sorry.

Fallout / Fallout 2 character quotes Edit

"What the hell? No non-official quotes!" - TheBearPaw

Yesterday, I added a non-official quote to Ian's character page, which I thought was quite humorous, but was not an official game quote, or other developer quote. So, the BearPaw reverted my edit and left this summary of it. Should they be strictly official? - Ghouly89 (Talk) 21:48, September 24, 2010 (UTC)

Hey Ausir,since i can't post this because of some glitch,i wanted to inform you that the khans are back,fallout-portal has released 2 new screenshots,one of them is the player (or an NPC) about to throw a throwing spear on some geckos,but the clothes/armor that the character is wearing has Great Khans written on it,and its very similar to the Khan's logo thing when i looked it up on the wiki,you should post this up.Fallout 2 fans might be pleased.

My news Edit

Why was the CBR interview with CA removed from it? Tezzla CannonUser Tezzla Dog 18:50, September 26, 2010 (UTC)

Admin Edit

Are you a member of the Wikia Gaming Team? I heard they can give people admin rights. If you can then please give a user named Sir REX admin rights on the LittleBigPlanet Wiki. Tezzla CannonUser Tezzla Dog 19:26, September 26, 2010 (UTC)

I haven't asked the other admin Wikite yet but i think he would agree as he thinks he is a good editor. Tezzla CannonUser Tezzla Dog 19:30, September 26, 2010 (UTC)

Okay i've asked him to make an admin request first. Tezzla CannonUser Tezzla Dog 19:33, September 26, 2010 (UTC)

Early Dawn Elementary Edit

Works for me. --Kris User Hola 15:44, September 27, 2010 (UTC)

Yeah I saw that when I refreshed the Double Redirects page, and fixed it to the new name. At any rate I'm finished with this batch of double redirects. --Kris User Hola 16:47, September 27, 2010 (UTC)

Perks/Statistics Edit

Should perks, traits, statistics, and bobbleheads be decapped? Tezzla CannonUser Tezzla Dog 16:45, September 27, 2010 (UTC)

Countdown Edit

I went on the Call of Duty Wiki and saw a countdown until Black Ops would be released. I thought it would be good for the main page here, so i copied the code for the template from the COD Wiki, and i couldn't make it. How do i do it? Here's a link: [2] Tezzla CannonUser Tezzla Dog 15:57, September 28, 2010 (UTC)

Annonnimus has found a way to do it here: Forum:Countdown template. Tezzla CannonUser Tezzla Dog 06:30, October 1, 2010 (UTC)

inappropriate editing Edit

I'm not one to go and tattle on someone on the internet, but I have the suspicion that the user "Unregistered contributor" has been editing inappropriate information under the "Fallout 3 creatures" page, I changed it back to what the original text was (He was replacing the word "ghoul" with the word "nigger"). I wasn't sure if you would care or not, but as you can read I already did something about it. I just wanted to inform you about this and hopefully you can keep an eye on him as I will be. -TheStakesAreHigh

Urgent! Edit

Well not much urgent but a wiki (MoH wiki) has copied an editing template completely. Go to any page and go to edit and you will have that template the Vault has for creating articles. The guy who did this obviously doesn't know what he's doing. Matt of the wastes 20:32, October 1, 2010 (UTC)

Patches Edit

Hi, would you happen to have any links to where I can get patches for fallout and fallout 2 please? Ouroboros Omega 12:39, October 3, 2010 (UTC)

Edit: never mind. Ouroboros Omega 13:00, October 3, 2010 (UTC)

Where's Porter? Edit

Porter21 should have been back two weeks ago, has he been kidnapped? We need his expertise ;-; --Light Daxter - Talk 21:24, October 3, 2010 (UTC)

Nevermind, he apparently is back on 13 Oct. --Light Daxter - Talk 18:33, October 4, 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, I should be back for good then. My schedule has been kind of hectic lately, and I simply forgot to update my "away" notice ;) -- Porter21 (talk) 18:37, October 4, 2010 (UTC)

Blog vids policy Edit

We should bring in a policy for these video blogs. Almost 99% of these blogs get the videos taken down 5 minutes later, and the users know it will be taken down, and these blogs are just plain annoying in my book. Tezzla CannonUser Tezzla Dog 15:31, October 5, 2010 (UTC)

I agree, these blogs serve no purpose, clutter up the news feed, and potentially expose the Vault to legal issues for linking to illegal content (though Youtube is quick about following through on a copyright claim). --Kris User Hola 21:58, October 5, 2010 (UTC)


I'll just have to edit "my tools" to hold links I want there. That'll solve my most important navigation difficulties. I'm still getting used to the new skin. Might take me a while but I'll get there. Thanks for the work you've been putting in.--Gothemasticator 11:37, October 9, 2010 (UTC)

The Vault to stay??? Edit

Ey Ausir!

I've been wondering...... There is alot of fuzz about the new wikia skin and some other gamewikia's are leaving wikia or consider to leave(like the GTA wikia)...... I just wanted to know what will happen to The Vault?

--Stovie 19:06, October 9, 2010 (UTC)

White Glove Society Edit

Hmm, yeah, it could go either way but with the name "White Glove Society" it's more likely the faction than the quest. --Kris User Hola 00:10, October 10, 2010 (UTC)

The Vault User Levels Edit

Hey Ausir remember a while back you were looking for ideas for levels in the Vault like what the Halo wiki have done? Well I've came up with an idea. What if they were ranks in a Vault-Tec Vault? Obviously since you're the main editor you're level would be Overseer. Porter would have the level Underseer. New comers with 0 edits could have the level garbage burner. That kind of stuff. So what do you think? :) --Chiefsean16 00:14, October 10, 2010 (UTC)

Oh sorry I meant achievements. Got a little mixed up, but on the Halo wiki they have some sort of edit count thing for each user which is kinda cool. --Chiefsean16 00:19, October 10, 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, maybe for adding a couple of images you could get an achievement called Vault Tattoo Artist or something like that. --Chiefsean16 00:29, October 10, 2010 (UTC)

I Do Not Understand The Scope of the Fallout 1&2 Unity Edit

Recently I was reading on the "Unity", the master's army of Super Mutants. Well, i am baffled, how many mutants are in this army? This is information that I would like to know just to achieve a little more grasp on Fallout 1&2 as I was born a fallout 3 child.

Recategorization Edit

K, stopping. --Kris User Hola 14:04, October 10, 2010 (UTC)

Sorry, that was me logged out a few mins ago. Stopping Also, sorry again - new to these project thingies. Agent c 22:55, October 10, 2010 (UTC)
For the Recategorization project should we create new seperate category pages for each skill based Item? ---bleep196- 22:59, October 10, 2010 (UTC)

alright sounds good. ---bleep196- 23:02, October 10, 2010 (UTC)

Images Edit

All of the specific game licenses are missing from the drop-down menu on the upload page... Nitty Tok. 03:17, October 11, 2010 (UTC)

User signature policy Edit

Hello. I've made myself a new signature and now I'm thinking if there is regarding the user's signatures, it's content, size, etc. Can you please tell me if there is one or not? User Veryblackraven PagetitleTalk 08:43, October 11, 2010 (UTC)

Ok, thanks for consultation. Let's say good bye to my new sig. :) The old one isn't bad anyway. Veryblackraven 12:38, October 11, 2010 (UTC)

Facebook Edit

Wow, really? Just like that? I'm honored, thank you. --Kris User Hola 12:27, October 11, 2010 (UTC)

That makes sense to me. Thanks all the same. --Kris User Hola 12:31, October 11, 2010 (UTC)
On that note, I was thinking of posting something along these lines on the Facebook page:
Vault admins, please send @Pawel Dembowski (Ausir) a friend invitation and then write on his Vault talk page to let him know your Facebook identity, so he can make you an admin of The Vault's Facebook page.
Good idea or not? --Kris User Hola 12:55, October 11, 2010 (UTC)
Also, Nukey is Nicholas Lee.

Facebook Identity Edit

It said on our Facebook page to give you our identities on Facebook. So, mine is Nicholas Lee, and I think you already have me added. Nukey (talk) 13:07, October 11, 2010 (UTC)

Oh, I see Kris already did it for me. Nukey (talk) 13:08, October 11, 2010 (UTC)

Adminship Request Edit

Hi Ausir i know that i've only been registered on The Vault for 3 months now, but with the amount of contributions i've made, both to projects and protecting articles from vandalism, and with the approach of Fallout: New Vegas i'd like to ask if there could be an acception to the rules, and possibly allow me to become an admin early. ---bleep196- 20:43, October 11, 2010 (UTC)

Alright i understand i can see where that would head if you made an exception for me, that road would not be pretty with all these people asking to be admins. I'll just wait. ---bleep196- 20:49, October 11, 2010 (UTC)

I don't think we need any more admins for now, since we've made 3 new admins in the past months. Nukey (talk) 20:52, October 11, 2010 (UTC)

hey ausir how do you put a picture properly...i saw you corrected the pic i put in for purifier....please if you can explain....oh and for ranks,what do we put??

hey man Edit

Hey man, its deathclawpoop do you want to join our raiders alliance group? we have a page in off-topic Deathclawpoop 00:20, October 12, 2010 (UTC)
