Well, as you can probably see, our coverage of Fallout 3 is quite thorough nowadays, but we're still missing quite a lot of info about Fallout 1 and 2 (people generally tend to have more motivation for writing about a newer game). So editors who contribute to FO1 and 2 articles are always welcome. Ausir 23:40, 10 February 2009 (UTC)  :)

Infoboxes Edit

Thanks for filling out the infoboxes for Optimize the powerplant and Solve the Gecko powerplant problem :) Just a little hint, please remember to remove {{Incomplete}} from an article when you've filled out the infobox. // Porter21 U | T 08:17, 18 February 2009 (UTC)

The "desc" field is for image description. Ausir 17:07, 18 February 2009 (UTC)
Aaaaah, okay. Thank you. Drake Clawfang 17:08, 18 February 2009 (UTC)

Re: Your Fallout Guide Edit

The guide was written by Per Jorner, one of the admins of No Mutants Allowed. He gave Ausir permission to add it to the wiki; I'm simply the guy who converted it to wiki syntax, I didn't write it :-) // Porter21 U | T 07:06, 19 February 2009 (UTC)

Re: Question Edit

No problem :) The Games template adds the game symbol in the upper right corner of a page (right under the "Article" and "Discussion" tabs, i.e. {{Games|FO2}} adds the Fallout 2 symbol. We use it to allow users to see at a quick glance which games/sources the information in an article comes from or relates to. It can be used for multiple games as well (e.g. {{Games|FO1|FO2}} would add both the Fallout and Fallout 2 symbols); the list of all the abbreviations can be seen at the template page I linked above. -- Porter21 (talk) 22:26, 23 February 2009 (UTC)

It only works with the Monaco skin as far as I know. -- Porter21 (talk) 22:30, 23 February 2009 (UTC)

Re:Liberty Prime Edit

I am myself not knowledgable enough about the situation to actually motivate it, but as Kastera already removed it, I'm sure he had his reasons, and I trust him more than you. You should contact him before you go about putting that again. Hugs Scar: "Say 'ello to my little friend!" 21:58, July 24, 2011 (UTC)

Good, then it should all be worked out soon ;). Hugs Scar: "Say 'ello to my little friend!" 22:09, July 24, 2011 (UTC)
I removed it because the quotes are somewhat similar on the surface, but in reality, not very close. Liberty's "Freedom is the sovereign right of every American" and Optimus' "Freedom is the right of all sentient beings" contain some of the same words, but ultimately are too different to have any correlation. --Kastera (talk) 22:31, July 24, 2011 (UTC)
No need to apologize buddy. We're all equal here at The Vault; some of us are just trusted more than others :). Kastera (talk) 22:58, July 24, 2011 (UTC)

Wazer Wifle Edit

I reverted it because it was unnecessary an overly obvious. --Kris User Hola 14:16, July 26, 2011 (UTC)

Waters of Life Edit

Hmmm... I've done that one particular part dozens of times and never have James or Li or any of the others been within range of the Super-mutants nearby, it may be a bug. -bleep196- 20:23, August 12, 2011 (UTC)

Neither have I, but I have a theory, and that is that the mutants react, not to the scientist's, but to the player's proximity, and if the scientists are in the proximity of the player as he/she is discovered, they're unfortunatly in the combat too. This might occur if you, say, walks with them all the way to the project and erring to close to the mutant encampment. I might be critically wrong, this is just a theory, and an explanation as to why I haven't encountered it, as I always stay away from that camp for this very reason, and sometimes even fast travel to the project. Hugs Scar: "Say 'ello to my little friend!" 20:27, August 12, 2011 (UTC)
Ok then it is a bug, since it seems the entire spawn was bugged for you then that means that entire portion of the quest was bugged, i'd go ahead and move that to the Bug's section. -bleep196- 20:29, August 12, 2011 (UTC)
It looks good now, nice ;). Hugs Scar: "Say 'ello to my little friend!" 20:37, August 12, 2011 (UTC)


Your edit was an example of strategy--an economic strategy. We don't include strategy in articles.--Gothemasticator 11:53, September 18, 2011 (UTC)


Reverted your edit again, it contained too much strategy (how to get power armor the easy way). And mind your spelling, it's Waters of Life, not Water of Life. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 17:50, December 11, 2011 (UTC)

I've fixed these errors then, thank you for explaining. Doreiku Kuroofangu 17:53, December 11, 2011 (UTC)


If someone says his name (I think it is John Henry Eden), then yes, you can create the page. Note that he appears as an Enclave officer, so write that as well. Though I recommend that you first use the GECK or ask someone else about it. MysteryStranger: Trust in the power of Infinity! 21:17, December 19, 2011 (UTC)

Apologies, I don't know how to use the GECK. I'll create the page to the best of my abilities though, I'm familiar with Wiki coding so it should be acceptable. Doreiku Kuroofangu 21:22, December 19, 2011 (UTC)
Hey, that's actually pretty good. Well noticed! He's named Enclave officer in-game, but he's telling his name on the intercom. You can create a page for it under Williams. Follow The Vault:Article layout guideline/Character article. Baseid is 39634, refid is 39635, karma is Evil, Caucasian, SPECIAL 5555555, clothing Enclave officer uniform, weapon Laser pistol (Fallout 3) or Plasma pistol (Fallout 3). Jspoel Speech Jspoel 21:31, December 19, 2011 (UTC)
Will do, thanks very much for the info. Doreiku Kuroofangu 21:32, December 19, 2011 (UTC)
You can also link him from The American Dream, where's he mentioned. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 21:33, December 19, 2011 (UTC)
Okay, that should do it. Doreiku Kuroofangu 21:52, December 19, 2011 (UTC)
Well done! You've made a pretty good page for him in no-time. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 22:12, December 19, 2011 (UTC)

Re:Q-35 Edit

This is a wiki of facts. This is not a wiki of speculation. If you're going to add information, please make sure it is set in stone. These are our rules, I am just making sure they are respected. Might be a good idea to take a look at our policies and guidelines eh? Thanks. -ΣΔLet's talk! 22:33, February 28, 2012 (UTC)

That sort of thing needs a citation like the rest of the weapon pages with Behind the Scenes sections. UserGreatMaraMessage 22:36, February 28, 2012 (UTC)
We only let confirmed references, or "inspirations" to stay. These are placed in the behind the scenes section. (Guidelines says it all, I'm just relaying the information.) If you have dev confirmation of your reference, then you are free to add it. Your wording is just fine. -ΣΔLet's talk! 22:36, February 28, 2012 (UTC)

Remember to reference it though ;) The Australian Kiwi 22:39, February 28, 2012 (UTC)

You're welcome. -ΣΔLet's talk! 22:41, February 28, 2012 (UTC)

Site Edit

Yes, it is known that Wikia has a software error and is working to fix it now. --Skire (talk) 17:42, June 28, 2012 (UTC)

It affects the large infoboxes and so will be quite an annoyance. Apparently it was caused by an attempted upgrade in the MediaWiki software for our site. --Skire (talk) 17:45, June 28, 2012 (UTC)

Re: Three Marys Edit

It appears I did. Sometimes when patrolling I read things too fast. I have rectified it, as well as giving it it's own bullet point. Thanks for taking the time to point it out. I appreciate it. Happy editing! FollowersApocalypseLogonihil novi sub sole 19:02, March 29, 2013 (UTC)


It's stander procedure for new bugs. Bugs need to happen to multiple people and be replicable to be notable. When someone else experiences the bug, they can verify it. JASPER//"Do you like hurting other people?"UserRichard 14:40, July 6, 2013 (UTC)

Notable loot Edit

We have a page for that! Notable loot policy. Enjoy. Richie9999 (talk) 02:45, July 7, 2013 (UTC)

Re: .22 pistolEdit

I'm assuming Tocinoman is off for the night, so I thought I'd address your question. Your edit was reverted because it fell under strategy, which isn't permitted on the wiki. The reasoning behind this is that there is literally an infinite amount of subjective strategic information that you could potentially add - this would bog down the articles and detract from the objective information. We assume that people can use to objective information to arrive at a subjective conclusion, so there's no need to list it in the articles. Hope this answers your question. If you have any other questions, please feel free to message me (or any of the other admins), or take a look at our editing guidelines. Happy editing!

I get that it's strategy and that is disliked, okay, but, isn't the rest of the info in that paragraph strategy as well? Drake Clawfang (talk) 14:46, March 5, 2014 (UTC)
I just saw your message. It seems A Follower hit the nail right on the head. It was strategy, and you are correct in that the paragraph needs to be reworded. As an editor, you are free to take a crack at it. :) Toci US Air Force Into the wild blue yonder... 00:04, March 6, 2014 (UTC)
Took a crack at it. I personally would disagree with keeping strategy off the pages, but I'm not here to make waves or cause trouble. Thanks for explaining guys :) Drake Clawfang (talk) 00:19, March 6, 2014 (UTC)


I have no idea. Maybe you can check the lunchboxes that have the NMI and then remove it, if the lunchboxes really are there. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 15:59, March 14, 2014 (UTC)

NMI stands for no more information. The editor who added those was not able to check the geck due to a loading error and was not certain that he got all the info available. You can geck check these additions and remove those tags, if you like. The Gunny  UserGunny chevrons 19:42, March 14, 2014 (UTC)
I'm not sure what geck check means, but I can confirm those two entries are there in the building. I was just going to merge them into one bullet, "6 in the building, 4 here, 2 here". Drake Clawfang (talk) 20:08, March 14, 2014 (UTC)

Elite Riot Gear Edit

I've reverted the changes you made to the Elite Riot Gear page. The characteristics section is for detailing the characteristics of the armor or weapon alone, not comparing x-armor to y-armor. Great Mara (talk) 19:54, April 3, 2014 (UTC)


I was wondering, where did you get the dialogue in that sandbox? I can't find it in the dialogue files and it doesn't seem to be part of the official endings. Still it sounds familiar to me in some way. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 23:47, December 13, 2014 (UTC)

I made it all up myself. Drake Clawfang (talk) 23:50, December 13, 2014 (UTC)
Oh, ok. Maybe I read your sandbox then months ago. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 23:52, December 13, 2014 (UTC)

Specialist OlinEdit

Hi there, mind if I ask, I wonder where you get that 100% skill source? I checked the geck, and she only have a value of 19 repair skills. ----Cassie I can see you。 22:57, January 10, 2015 (UTC)

From the Repair menu. I asked her to repair something, her skill showed up as 100, and she repaired my stuff to full condition. Drake Clawfang (talk) 22:58, January 10, 2015 (UTC)

I checked the in-game, she only have 19 repair skills just like the one in geck, which she cannot repair anything past 51%. Make sure you don't have any mods that change repair skills to 100. Is it okay for me to revert your edit?----Cassie I can see you。 23:04, January 10, 2015 (UTC)

I have no mods that change anyone's skills, at least no mods that say they do so. I can take a screenshot if you like. Drake Clawfang (talk) 23:18, January 10, 2015 (UTC)

It could be a game error or you might have accidentally use the command "modav repair 100", I also have to ask other persons to verify it ingame, see if its 100% for them. However if it's a bug, add this bug below the bug section of the article page Olin. Thanks. ----Cassie I can see you。 23:24, January 10, 2015 (UTC)

I didn't do a thing to her. Here's the screenshot. Drake Clawfang (talk) 23:27, January 10, 2015 (UTC)

Thats odd. it could be bug, I doubled check both the geck and in-game, only 19 repair skills, equivalent to Scribes, since her class was set to "Scribe". Most of the scribes like Peabody also have the same class, therefore most of their repair skills was set to 19 only, which it cannot repair past 51%. ----Cassie I can see you。 23:33, January 10, 2015 (UTC)

I don't know what to tell you, then. I am using mods, but as I said, none of them do anything to the Repair skill or NPCs that the mods warn about. Drake Clawfang (talk) 23:38, January 10, 2015 (UTC)

Some mods might have accidentally/purposely edited Olin and set her skills to 100. Try to disable and enable one of the mods, see if one of them causes conflicts and/or modifies Olin. Thanks. ----Cassie I can see you。 23:44, January 10, 2015 (UTC)

Nope, all mods disabled, only the five official add-ons. Still 100 repair. Drake Clawfang (talk) 23:52, January 10, 2015 (UTC)

I might be wrong but even if its deactivated after you've met "modified" Olin, her skill will not change, again I might be wrong. But if its a bug, place it under the bug section, otherwise try to load a save, (the one that doesnt have a mod that modifies Olin and/or haven't met her yet.) see if her repair skill's 19. ----Cassie I can see you。 23:59, January 10, 2015 (UTC)

I have no such saves, and I don't know if it's a bug or not, if I did we wouldn't be having this conversation. Drake Clawfang (talk) 00:03, January 11, 2015 (UTC)

I doubled checked the geck and in-game again, I don't think both of them will lie to me, since I only activated both master file and the add-on itself, if this only happens to you, its either a bug or mods. Otherwise I have to ask others as well, pretty sure it will be the same. ----Cassie I can see you。 00:10, January 11, 2015 (UTC)
