Unban me.. 10:41 PM, June 13, 2013

"Bias"Edit

Chris, I feel I need to clear some of the air with you. I'm not normally one for reading the logs, but its come to my attention you've some misinterpretations about some recent events.

  • Firstly, with Eric. It isn't the Rape joke alone that he was banned for. It was that he took it to an entirely other level, and acted with complete disrespect to Guardian when he objected. Had I not have acted, I was informed by someone else they would have, and likely would have hit hawk with more than just a temp ban. As for Leon, I didn't see it in his comment, so he wasn't so much "let off", as it wasn't seen at the time.
  • Second, the rest of the so-called bias I have because of Melo. There is no secret that the person who has made her life the hardest here is Liam. He solicited personal information on her from another user - so much so that the user he took that from feels so bad by it that he asked to be banned from the wiki. Liam recieved around a dozen warnings in a single 24 hour period, and even AFTER he was told about the blatant bias towards him I was showing he continued to push my buttons, seemingly at the time to goad me into trying to ban him. If anything, I have a bias AGAINST her because I refuse to act where she is involved.
The fact is, had I wanted him gone, I could have banned him for needling Relics about his hat after countless final warnings. I could have wiki banned him when he expanded it to Rel's Talk page. I could have banned him again when talking about my aleged bias he made ANOTHER joke about Relic's hat. I could have made him the first person I am aware of banned for Chat Rule 4. If I am biased against him, and for Mel... Why isn't he banned?
Perhaps instead of "is Chad Biased because of Mel", the question should be, "why did Liam continue pushing Chad to ban him - even after Chad told Liam he could have done it that many times on the same day and told Liam he wouldn't do it?" Some Banning and wining.

Call me biased all you like, but I have been against "Rape Jokes" for well over a year, and I have refused to act in any area where there is a conflict of interest even longer. I will not ban in any case where Mel is involved - for or against. I am not judging in the apprentice and announced my intention not to some weeks ago to contestants.

I think the facts stand for themselves. Agent c (talk) 17:13, June 14, 2013 (UTC)

CC's Roleplaying WikiEdit

Yo Chris,

Slightly brighter topic this time around. Sorry if I seemed grumpy before, but you know, things were getting to me more than they should.

Right, to business. I've been thinking over the whole sister wiki thing. I'm looking at Fallout Answers first, and will start to add a Question of the Week from them, and see if we can get some of their stuff on our portals, etc.

But, was thinking about the others too. I know your Roleplaying wiki isnt an official sister, facing the whole chicken-and-egg problem with traffic, but I'd like to examine what we can maybe do anyway. Was discussing this with the chat guys and was maybe thinking a few RP events might do it. You organise it, we promote it, and hopefully get some folks to head your way.

Any ideas in this direction? Agent c (talk) 22:06, June 18, 2013 (UTC)

Joke kick Edit

I was perfectly fine with the users making second accounts named "Excessive Dolan" and "Even more excessive dolan" and bringing them into chat. There's nothing in the rules against making second accounts or naming one of them after one of our policies. Joke kicking one of them though, even if it was under your control, is not acceptable. There is a policy against that. I would expect a chat moderator to understand and abide by our chat policies. Please do so in the future. The Gunny  380px-USMC-E7 svg 01:48, July 7, 2013 (UTC)

2 things Edit

why did u ban and I found a page that leads to chat mods --Xeno126 (talk) 03:35, July 22, 2013 (UTC)

According to the dictionary, gay means happy. Next time, don't jump the freakin' gun and assume I mean homosexual.

TonightEdit

Hi Chris,

Want to apologise for exploding today, and my reaction. It because I care about what goes on with the wiki, and I care about the reputation it, and the chatroom have.

I think you're a good mod who's happy to let things go on when its the right thing to do, but aren't afraid to be serious when the time comes for it.

But I do care a lot about the reputation and the welcoming aspect of the chatroom. Its not as good as I remember... I dont know if its because I'm remembering something that didn't exist, or because I had on blinkers. I remember reading stories about how women were treated in games like COD and thinking "Im proud Nukapedia isnt like that", but then stuff happens to make me realise that just below the surface, its there.

I want chat to be a welcoming place for all - new, old, male, female, other, and whatever their background may be. I'd like your help in ensuring that we can be both a welcoming place for new folk, and still cater for the regulars too. I'd like your help in ensuring that we do have this kind of atmosphere. I'd love any suggestions you have. Agent c (talk) 03:13, August 20, 2013 (UTC)

Chat moderation responsibilitiesEdit

Unfortunately, after discussion with J and Clyde, we feel it necessary to remind you of the behavior that we expect from chat moderators:

  • You are expected to treat all chat users with courtesy and respect. As extra rights holders of this community, your behavior is representative of Nukapedia as a whole, and it should represent that. We expect users to be able to experience chat in an environment where our chat mods are polite, respectful and, when needed, helpful. Chat moderators should never, in any instance, treat users in any way that could be construed as abusive or insulting, regardless of whether the user is in chat for the first time, comes to chat rarely or is a frequent user.
  • You are expected to uphold all the chat rules (and site policies and Wikia ToU) as they are written and agreed upon by the community. You do not have the freedom to decide which rules to enforce and which not to. If you disagree with a rule or policy, you are still required to enforce them as written as long as they remain policy. If you refuse to enforce all the rules as written, you are not fulfilling your duties and the trust the community placed in you to moderate chat properly.
  • You are expected to comport yourself in such a fashion that you never break any of the chat rules, site policies or Wikia ToU while in chat. Moderators that break the rules themselves, even if it's a rule you disagree with, set a bad example for others to break the rules, or confuse users over what is permissible. It is an abuse of powers to break the rules yourself while you enforce them on others.
  • Your enforcement of the rules is expected to be fair and, most importantly, consistent. You can not show favoritism to any user over another when enforcement of rules applies. The rules apply to everyone: new users; old users; your friends; other moderators; and you, yourself. Showing favoritism by enforcing the rules unevenly confuses users over what is permissible and is a gross abuse of powers.
  • You are expected to respect any other chat moderators, moderators, administrators and bureaucrats who are moderating chat. All these extra rights users are granted chat moderator rights by the community and are expected to use them properly when in chat. If you disagree with a decision made by another moderator or sysop, you should discuss it in PM, not in the main chat. Our moderators need to display consistent behavior and openly arguing with other moderators or sysops in chat is not acceptable under any circumstance, as it undermines a our overall enforcement of the chat rules. If you disagree with a decision by another chat moderator, which you have every right to, we expect you to voice those disagreements privately and come to a consensus, bringing in another moderator if needed, before any further actions.
  • You are expected to work with all chat moderators, moderators, administrators and bureaucrats in chat. You are not, by the nature of being a moderator, solely responsible for chat. Chat moderation is a shared duty by all the moderators and sysops. Chat is not a domain where you have greater authority over any other moderator or sysop by the nature of you being a moderator or in chat more than they. All moderators and sysops are fully aware of the rules that apply in chat and have been trusted by the community with the tools to moderate it. Their decisions do not carry less weight in chat than yours.
  • You are expected to understand that chat is not a separate domain. It is fully a part of this wiki, a tool used to facilitate communication between users of the wiki. Nukapedia chat is not some off-site chat room and you should not treat it as such.

Your behavior in chat must meet all the expectations outlined above. The rules and policies apply to us all, and apply evenly. You must understand that any violations of the chat rules, or abuse of your moderator powers, will result in the same enforcement all users are subject to. By the very nature of holding an extra rights position, your behavior must be above reproach. You are expected to implicitly understand this as a condition of accepting those rights. We appreciate your contributions to this wiki, your edits, your time and your ability to moderate chat, but your conduct and enforcement of the chat rules must meet these expectations. If you feel you can not fulfill these expectations, you will inform me immediately with a message on my talk page.

TALK - New Features Discussion
Hey, Chris. When you get the chance, can you give this forum a look? I have a few finished ideas that I'd like to get some community input from, and your feedback would be appreciated.

Forum discussionEdit

Hi, was wondering if you could take a look at This forum I've posted to replace our current gameplay help forums with links to the Fallout Answers wiki. Thanks. Agent c (talk) 11:25, October 10, 2013 (UTC)

Chat conduct guideline changesEdit

Hey Chris. In light of Saint Pain's chat ban and after some discussion with Leon and J I've decided to do some minor re-writes to the chat conduct guideline page. Basically what I'm looking to do is:

  • Remove the current ban guidelines and give more leeway for mods to ban people on a case-by-case basis
  • Add a provision for perma-banned users to appeal their ban immediately to a bureaucrat

There's a few other re-wordings and some stuff moved around, but those are the big things I think need need changing. You can find a draft here. Understand that adding the bureaucrat review is not to challenge your or any other mods authority, but simply makes the review neutral as opposed to a popularity contest (which in the case of a community vote it definitely can be). I included an original copy of the guideline so you can see the changes. Please let me know what you think and if this is something you support.

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. Inevitably, this new system has seen significantly fewer voters participating. As such, we would like to extend an invitation for you to go participate in the voting. Directions and voting itself can be found here. Thanks! --Skire (talk) 04:28, December 4, 2013 (UTC)

RE:Article of the DayEdit

Hi Chris. We're currently going through the process of choosing completely new articles for the rotation. You can find the list in progress here. These new ones are chosen based on their content quantity and subject significance. After we have all of them chosen, we'll go through and make sure they're up to standards.

Navboxes Edit

FW:LAY says, "Navboxes are navigational aids which allow easy access to other articles in a group the current article belongs to." Those characters do not belong to the navbox (and are not found in the navbox) labelled "Brotherhood of Steel topics," as it refers to broader subjects related to the BoS, not just base characters. --Skire (talk) 22:09, January 23, 2014 (UTC)

I'm sorry you went through all of that trouble, but I'm afraid the nav-boxes added are inappropriate. The nav-box being used is for BoS topics, and individual characters not involved don't need to have this nav-box listed on their respective article-pages. ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 22:23, January 23, 2014 (UTC)
Ah! That would make a lot of sense. But we'd have to keep it concise, I believe. Only certain characters such as Rhombus and Vree. ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 22:29, January 23, 2014 (UTC)

FA Edit

I moved Enclave and GECK to the "Other" category. They appear in many games so they could go there (we need 55 for it lol). I really appreciate the help. We'll keep pushing and hopefully get this done soon. It's great work we're doing here. --Skire (talk) 02:49, January 31, 2014 (UTC)

InfoboxesEdit

Thanks for helping with this, Chris!

Here are the parameters; just edit this section and copy them from below:

|aggression = |confidence = |assistance = |hair color = |eye color = |hairstyle = |head add ons= |height = |factions = |class = |combat style= |GECK race =

All you need to do is paste them in the infobox section of a character page. Can you start with New Vegas DLCs? If not, Broken Steel needs a few more entries, and Operation: Anchorage is not very complete and still needs work.

The data you need is under every NPC. Just click on their name in the GECK, and go through each tab ("Traits," "Stats," "Factions," etc.) and fill out the parameters above.

Let me know if you have questions; the GECK can be really confusing sometimes! 69.l25 (talk) 22:16, January 31, 2014 (UTC)

Dialogue filesEdit

I have a proposition for you. Can you help out with extracting the Fallout: New Vegas dialogue files from the GECK? It's not that hard, you can find the dialogue of each character in their GECK stats, select it, sort it a bit in Excel or OpenOffice and almost plain copy it to a wiki page. Theodorico (has a Russian name now) uses his bot to convert it to a table like you see here. Looks great, doesn't it and we add it to the character's infobox and can use it for reference. I can give you the details if you're interested. We're talking a few thousand entries so I can use all the help I can get. Let me know, ok? Jspoel Speech Jspoel 00:43, February 3, 2014 (UTC)

We're almost done with Fallout: New Vegas. Waiting for Theo to give the go ahead for Fallout 3 and I think FFIX has done a lot of those already. So I'll let you know later on what you still can do. You can find an example in the Category:Fallout: New Vegas dialogue files, browse the history of a random page on it. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 21:18, February 6, 2014 (UTC)
Once exported, you need to copy it to a spreadsheet program like Excel or OpenOffice. Then it's all put into columns and become much more managable. There you can very easily sort it on any given column. You need to use the NPCID columns as first priority can even add a secondary choice. I gave instructions to FFIX here. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 00:08, February 7, 2014 (UTC)

Third-Person DiscussionEdit

Hi. I've opened up a forum to discuss a proposal to deal with our first-person-in-articles issue. Can you please give it a glance and share any feedback. Thanks 69.l25 (talk) 04:42, February 12, 2014 (UTC)

Incredibly minor grammatical questionEdit

For the early version of the White Wash, mentioned on the Miguel (Fallout: New Vegas) page, does each quest objective refer to his pawn shop as "Angelo's Pawn Shop" or only some? 69.l25 (talk) 22:40, February 16, 2014 (UTC)

That was a good find in the dialogue for Miguel (Fallout: New Vegas) being named Angelo earlier. If can find more of those kind of references digging through dialogues that would be great. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 22:48, February 16, 2014 (UTC)

Unarmed Bobblehead video Edit

Hi Chris,

I saw that you undid my revision adding a video to the Unarmed Bobblehead page. You noted that it was against policy. What policy are you referring to? The only policy I could find was that it should be Fallout related, and should be used to show where difficult to find locations are. Well I think Rockopolis qualifies as difficult to find! Or at least the Slavers seemed to think so. Is there some other reason you removed the video?

Cheers,

Leon

Fallout 3 dialoguesEdit

Forwarded from FFIX his talkpage
Theo has managed to create a bot for the Fallout 3 dialogues, so you can start uploading them. Coordinate your work with User:FFIX, User:Paladin117 and User:69.l25, if they choose to join in the effort, ok? You can find instructions on my talkpage. I've also uploaded a few examples. Load Broken Steel as well when you create the export file. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 14:50, March 5, 2014 (UTC)

Hello, if you want to work on the FO3 dialogues, we will want to work out how big of a chunk we each want to work on at a time. I just uploaded Dashwood so I can see if it goes OK, so the NPCs with a Users value of 200 and up are done. As I understand it, it's just a straight, raw paste job with the header and footer lines tacked on, so there isn't a whole lot to do with each file. I'll probably start in earnest tomorrow (Thursday) so if you're interested, please let the others and me know how many you want to work on. Thanks. --FFIX (talk) 22:49, March 5, 2014 (UTC)
