Companions Edit

After a while I realized that in fact it looks bad, but when I wanted to change, I noticed that you already did it. Anyway thanks, but next time give me time to improve, I always check if something is not spoiled. : ) --Maiar 16:12, September 8, 2011 (UTC)

F:NV EW ammo question. Edit

Hello GhostAvatar,

I've started going over the New Vegas EW ammo types and noticed there is no clear info about recycling and converting between types (SEC to MFC, etc.). Need some advice.

  1. Is this info even needed on the pages?
  2. If so, should all the conversion data be shown on all three pages?
    1. e.g. The energy cell page would list to and from, or just what energy cells convert into. Same for microfusion and electron charge.
  3. Would this be better in a bulleted section or an infobox?

I've got all the information ready, but wanted to check before doing anything with it.

Thanks, --FourWayDiablo(talk) 16:15, September 8, 2011 (UTC)

Okay, I'll check back on the energy cell page in a while. But don't damage the Characteristics section! I just re-wrote it, and I'm very proud of myself! ^_^
All the best, --FourWayDiablo(talk) 16:42, September 8, 2011 (UTC)
P.S. If you just want to get everything in the right order, I'll clean up the rest of the page if that will save you time. --FourWayDiablo(talk) 16:47, September 8, 2011 (UTC)

Thanks. Didn't mean to dump all that work in your lap, it's much appreciated. --FourWayDiablo(talk) 17:46, September 8, 2011 (UTC)

The best way to learn it is to do it, I guess. I'll try it on the microfusion cell page. If the Preview explodes, I'll stagger back here for help. All the best, --FourWayDiablo(talk) 18:05, September 8, 2011 (UTC)

Success! I searched through your energy cell edits for reference when I got stuck, so thanks for your (passive) help. :-D --FourWayDiablo(talk) 20:06, September 8, 2011 (UTC)

I'm on it. Just taking a breather after all that thinkin' I done. I think the notable locations can be trimmed too, as a lot of it is just names of traders. --FourWayDiablo(talk) 20:19, September 8, 2011 (UTC)

There we go... I think. :/ The Almighty One

  • Thanks. I'm still a tad noobish.

Block of User:Gregor_Hakha Edit


I have overturned the block of a user Gregor Hakha. This user does not seem to have been a sockpuppet of any form. Obviously as community admin, you have the right to make blocks and uphold them, but I sincerely believed this to be a good faith error, especially considering there is no vandalism on the wiki from said user.

Also sorry, I accidentally pressed "submit" on the unblock before finishing my reasoning, which I know is a no-no. --daNASCAT WikiaStaff.png (help forum | blog) 22:55, September 8, 2011 (UTC)

The Paintball WikiEdit

Heya this is mr cowbell. I'm here to ask permission if I could copy+paste some of your project page onto my wiki so I don't have to write a giant section on projects. I'll ofcourse give your wiki credit in the talk page of the projects (for whomever wrote the page) and also I would take out the name "the Vault" and replace it with "The Paintball Wiki". Thanks, please reply on my talk page here

Y-17 trauma override harnessEdit

I was wondering if someone with a GECK could check, but are they listed as robots or creatures? In relation to an edit AFollower made to the page. UserGreatMaraMessage 08:59, September 10, 2011 (UTC)

MS .44 magnumEdit

Can you take a look at the Mysterious Stranger's .44 magnum (Fallout: New Vegas) page?. I think Comedian created it, because it has a different appearance than the FO3 version. That's just about the only difference, stats are the same. As I see it, the difference doesn't warrant a New Vegas page. Looks to me like both weapons (FO3 and FNV) can be one page, Mysterious Stranger's .44 magnum, like it was up until yesterday. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 16:46, September 10, 2011 (UTC)

  • And what do you think of the naming of the Automated turret overview page. Should it be like it's named now, or would Turret be better?

Re: Image Edit

)groans and sighs a bit(
Yeah, you're right, of course. I suppose that's among the things that one just has to swallow and get over when compiling an encyclopedia: while not everything one finds is going to be something that one might personally want on preserved, it still needs to be included to establish and maintain a complete record.

-- The Arcadian Rook (talk)Needs More Battle Cattle 21:01, September 10, 2011 (UTC)


You're already beginning to sound like a bureaucrat with your comment about the House quest ;). You're ready for it. But thanks, thought it was a too important page to leave it almost blank like it was. And about the magnum, does this mean the pages are separated in an FO3 and FNV version? Then the FO3 version needs to be renamed to Mysterious Stranger's .44 magnum (Fallout 3), right? Jspoel Speech Jspoel 22:27, September 10, 2011 (UTC)

Voting Edit

Hi. I'm new to the wiki and I was wondering how long I should wait before I start voting on things such as adminship requests etc.The Arabian LiZard 06:30, September 12, 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for the feedback and congrats on becoming a beurocrat!!The Arabian LiZard 05:54, September 13, 2011 (UTC)

User RehabReject trolling and baiting. Edit

Hi, I tried to start a simple forum discussion about the use of auto-play from youtube and the user RehabReject decided to be a twat and edit in a video spamming obnoxious noises and trolling the page. Can you kindly take care of this?

Thank you. 08:38, September 12, 2011 (UTC)

Oh God. I am not a Troll. I was simply taking the mick, and also, my posts were not bait. They were a reply to your ridiculous statements. Before you accuse someone of doing so, please research into what the matter actually is:

Also, you are breaking the rules calling me a twat, so-called Rule Abiding User. RehabReject 08:30, September 12, 2011 (UTC)

Just because someone disagrees with you and is being sarcastic does not make them a Troll, no need to cry to the admins. Boo-hoo. RehabReject 08:32, September 12, 2011 (UTC)

As you can plainly see, the user has no problem harassing people even on an admin's talk page. I really hope this kind of conduct isn't to be expected on a wiki with so many admins. 08:37, September 12, 2011 (UTC)

No. Also learn the definition of harassment please. If you think a bit of sarcasm is harassment and you have to moan to the admins about it, you must be a very dull person with no sense of humour at all. RehabReject 08:39, September 12, 2011 (UTC)

Hmm... makes me wonder... Vault101Reject -> RehabReject ? The registration date is awfuly close to the bann date. --Loonix 08:45, September 12, 2011 (UTC)

What do you mean? RehabReject 08:47, September 12, 2011 (UTC)

Here's an image, it's nice to see the users you give rollback rights to encourage trolling. Also, more sad insults and attention seeking from rehab. Every time someone posted something against him he'd go LOLOLOL LOOK GUIS GIVE ME ATTENTION. Enjoy.

EDIT: He's since removed them, but if you dig back through the forum page and his userpage he's intentionally hidden an auto play youtube video that spams obnoxious noises for the entire purpose of being disruptive and annoying. I think his behavior speaks for itself, honestly.


Lol. I am not Trolling, Jasper just said I am as a joke. Also, I am not attention seeking, I am merely keeping up appearances in a dead chat.RehabReject 10:10, September 12, 2011 (UTC)

I have a right to add that to my user page if I want to. Also, I added it for the intention of my user page looking nice and lovely, as a matter of fact. Don't look at it if you don't want to. We're not going to drop everything and change the rules just because one Anon has to moan about every little oddity. RehabReject 10:18, September 12, 2011 (UTC)

RehabReject starting things yet again, this time with admin/user slandering! Edit


No. All the stuff I said in that picture were true. They actually occured. Just check yesterday's chat log. Also, you were not even in the chat yesterday, so I do not know how you can say I am lying when you know nothing of what happened yesterday. Also, your username is not in the chat, so you must be using two accounts. It is against the rules to have more than one account, FYI. RehabReject 10:40, September 12, 2011 (UTC)

Vault Boy approves!

Congrats Edit

Congratulations on becoming a bereaucrat! You certainly earned it. Now go abuse your new powers :P jkjk EDIT: my god me and the person above have almost the exact same message. I didn't intend for that to happen 0_0 —Preceding unsigned comment added by Mr cowbell2 (talkcontribs). Please sign your posts with ~~~~!


Yes, I had seen your comment, little goes by me here. Well, it's about the same as I wrote, you had some more details as you were able to check the log. Strange behaviour from Gauzz rifle. But back to positive things, congratulations on your promotion to bureaucrat! It's good to have a very active one. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 20:55, September 12, 2011 (UTC)

  • As you have more details I suggest you determine his block duration then.


This is Nukey, I was banned unfairly for using an account to speak with because I had forgotten my password, and for supposed racism. Please try and do something about this (also unlock my talk page so I can at least edit it with my own account). 21:04, September 12, 2011 (UTC)


Ghost, what you think of Ionised? He posted a similar offensive comment on his talkpage as Yliannos did a few months ago, which at the time I removed and caused some stir-up. Notice this Ionised has about the same avatar. Two accounts isn't allowed, right? Jspoel Speech Jspoel 21:21, September 12, 2011 (UTC)


I read your post to Gothemasticator. Yes, check the block log for the reasons. Looks to me like he's in violation now. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 21:34, September 12, 2011 (UTC)

I'm sorry, I'm not the best about reading the standpoint of sentences. By he's in violation you're referring to Goth or me? 21:39, September 12, 2011 (UTC)


Well, Nukey created the User:MyLittleGoatse account because he stated he had forgotten his password. When he retrieved it again he was blocked for creating that account and some other things. What worries me now, is that he could be the same user as User:Gregor Hakha and User:Vault 101 Reject, as they all have My Little Pony references in their profile, with MyLittleGoatse going even further with the offensive name. Best to read the User:MyLittleGoatse talkpage for some further info. I really wonder why an admin would do such a thing, justifying trolling among other things. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 22:09, September 12, 2011 (UTC)

  • Right. You're on it.
  • Absolutely. I was thinking the exact same thing for you, what a first day to start your bureaucratship. Already needing to be in full gear.

Hey could i have my chat privledges back please. :)

Boulder City memorial / mentioned-only charactersEdit

Ghost, I received a post from TwoBearsHigh-Fiving about names on the BCM. See my talkpage. Of the names on that stone and also for a lot of other mentioned-only characters, we're not sure if it's a human character or a ghoul character, since the NCR has some ghoul characters enlisted. Following this I would say that the human category for names on the stone be removed, (except Donald Kowalski) and also for other mentioned-only characters of which we're not sure, remove the human category. Wha you think? Jspoel Speech Jspoel 02:12, September 13, 2011 (UTC)

  • Thanks, I'll get back to HighBears on it. Maybe he's interested in doing the work for it.


This may be belated, but congratulations on becoming a bureaucrat! You deserve it. Yes Man default 05:51, September 13, 2011 (UTC)


...for looking into the Gauzz and Nukey matters. I just happened to be online at the right moment to see Nukey's actions, and I did what seemed best. Didn't have time, though, to bring anybody else in on it. Quite a first day for you, huh?--Gothemasticator 15:10, September 13, 2011 (UTC)

Congratulations GhostEdit

Congrats Ghost, you deserve it. Good luck :). Also, did you get my Funny of the Week suggestion? You never told me what you thought... Lastly, my Mod app finishes at 8:00, and I suppose now you have the power to approve it :). Tell me what you think about my FotW thing either way, and see you soon ;). TheGuardianCalligraphyGuardianoftheWastesTag

Did you see this? Or are you going to wait to do them all at once? TheGuardianCalligraphyGuardianoftheWastesTag
Well, Scar said I seemed impatient. Sorry about that; I'm not. Also, the one above was about the FotW, not the mods, but Scar also thought that it was about that. Apologies again. It would be a shame to ditch it, but it is obviously your page and your choice. I do think the one with Cart is the best though... At least keep that? Sorry if I did bug you Ghost, I only really came along to say well done :). TheGuardianCalligraphyGuardianoftheWastesTag


I don't want to start a debate, but I'm going to remove the words that indicate probably. The content itself represents proof, now doesn't it? MysteryStranger: Trust in the power of Infinity! 18:10, September 13, 2011 (UTC)

Music on talkpagesEdit

I read your talkpage comment about music on pages. You're a bureaucrat now, you could set the policy to userprofile ok, talkpage not allowed, right? That would be my vote anyway. Or you can talk it over with Porter. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 20:46, September 13, 2011 (UTC)

Another oneEdit

Avatar, I'd like to change to page creation templates so they are in line with the Lonesome Road release. It brought me quite a bit of profit having done some with the OWB release and I regretted for example I hadn't done the holodisks and notes. Now I want to do them all. They are hardly used anymore right now for FNV pages anyway, so I think this is a good idea and will save us a lot of work. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 20:57, September 13, 2011 (UTC)

  • I don't think it will be such a problem. LR, a DLC and the two packs (Courier's Stash and GRA) have very different contents and the releases are a week apart from each other. I would say just change the FNV templates to LR and a few days later only some item templates (weapons, misc items) need changing. But if you decide else, we shouldn't wait too long anymore, the LR release is a week away. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 21:40, September 13, 2011 (UTC)
  • Our posts crossed each other. I'll take a look at your link! I may need some help though.


Nice job on getting them bureaucrat rights. You've certainly earned it :) EBTalk 21:04, September 13, 2011 (UTC)

Boulder City memorialEdit

Avatar, yesterday I got a question about giving the Boulder City Memorial an own page. Could be worth one, looks significant enough to me. Also gives a bit more room to the Boulder City page. What you think? Jspoel Speech Jspoel 22:13, September 14, 2011 (UTC)


I was thinking (obviously) song name at the top, the composer, year published, genre, what game(s) it's heard in. Anything else you can think of that might help? --Kastera (talk) 23:31, September 14, 2011 (UTC)

Looks like I've got a new project. :D --Kastera (talk) 20:55, September 15, 2011 (UTC)
I just thought of two new parameters: 'written by' and 'produced by'.

Alright, that's all I really need. I'll come ask you if any trouble comes. --Kastera (talk) 21:24, September 15, 2011 (UTC)

You might need to check for me but I think sergant rl-3 has some unique dialogue when normal mister gutsies say "Ah another glorious day in this man's army" rl-3 says" Ah another glorias day in the US army!"


Hi! I tried to make that page a bit more user friendly and I'd like your opinion on if the weapon durability equation would be a useful addition to that page. I have included special rounds condition modifiers (thanks to Great Mara) and Raul's perks and I'm trying to fit the Build to destroy trait too. Comedian1988 05:46, September 15, 2011 (UTC)

Chat Edit

Hi, can you come to the chat for a sec? Ausir(talk) @Wikia 18:04, September 15, 2011 (UTC)

New achievementEdit

I've had a talk on the chat with Ausir today and he agreed on removing the Fallout 3 locations achievement track, and replacing it with the Fallout 3 robots and computers achievements. I would like to do the work on changing that. When LR is released, the LR quest achievement track can be added. Another thing, you still like to include the Jury Rigging textual line, besides the infobox mentioning it? See this forum thread. I just reverted some edits from Butterflykiss removing it, Scarface thought it was a good idea. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 19:20, September 15, 2011 (UTC)

I even told her to remove it. Hugs MadeMan2 "Say 'ello to my little friend!"

Chat Edit

Hey thanks alot man im sorry for being such a jack ass about that btw congrats on the promotion.

Song problemEdit

I'm not sure what happened, but it seems that the |radio = does nothing now. It's filled out correctly, but now the infobox header just says 'Song' rather than 'Gallaxy News Radio song' for example. What happened? --Kastera (talk) 22:03, September 15, 2011 (UTC)

  • Yup, it's working now.
  • I've been doing that. I figured it out after 'Anything Goes' when I thought the would take me to the disambig page.
I think the infobox title could just stay "Song" while we have 'radio' in with appearance. I sort of ran into that problem with Dear Hearts and Gentle People. It doesn't appear ingame whatsoever, but appears in the trailer. --Kastera (talk) 22:46, September 15, 2011 (UTC)

Giveaway for Lonesome Road Edit

Hey there, my name is Tae and I'm the category manager for Wikia Gaming. I was talking to Ausir about doing another wiki contest for Lonesome Road, similar to the one we did for Old World Blues. Ausir suggested I talk to you about it and work with you on this one. Basically, I can offer you and the other admins 5 prize packs consisting of either Xbox Points, PSN points or Steam (we can gift to the winners' accounts) depending on their preference (total is about $100 broken down into $20 chunks (1600 MS points) per winner, which covers Lonesome Road plus the two weapons packs that are coming out.

We basically stay out of the way and allow you and the other admins to dictate the contest entry and parameters; I simply provide the prize and handle logistics of getting it to the winners. Ausir had an idea that he was going to implement, so you may want to pick his brain; otherwise, it's up to you and the other admins on what you want to do. Only thing we ask is that you limit it to US and UK users; we don't have a good process in place to get prizes to worldwide users just yet. Please let me know if you have any questions. Otherwise, good luck and have fun with the contest! tae@Wikia (talk) 23:55, September 15, 2011 (UTC)

Miss.Nicolle Edit

So Nicolle asked me to contact you about her ban cause its been a day since she was banned. Did the length of her ban change or something? Richie9999 02:14, September 16, 2011 (UTC)

Regarding my block Edit

Just messaging to say I completely understand why I was blocked, I am really sorry if I offended you or anyone else. I have also written to apologise to Gothicmasticator too. It was an honest mistake that I made, I misread his name and I thought that the name I put was correct, it wasn't intentional in any way. So again, sorry and I completely understand Miss Nicolletalk 02:22, September 16, 2011 (UTC)

Fallout 3/NV conusumable pagesEdit

I and Bleep recently spit the Sugar Bomb page, and I jsut ran across the Gum drops page, and saw it needed the same treatment. I thought. It now seems that most every single one needs this, or should they remain? Are there some special requirements, like them being involved in a quest or perk, that has to be met? Hugs MadeMan2 "Say 'ello to my little friend!"

Lonesome Road Edit

Alas, I forgot what it was about. I'll tell you when I think of something, or just make something up yourself. :) Ausir(talk) @Wikia 19:37, September 16, 2011 (UTC)

Icon imagesEdit

Sorry to bother you again (you being a bureaucrat has made contacting you about things a bit easier I've noticed). What you think about renaming the Vault Boy icon categories to just icons? So rename Fallout: New Vegas armor and clothing Vault Boy icons to just Fallout: New Vegas armor and clothing icons? (without the former image behind icons because an icon in itself is already an image). And Fallout: New Vegas weapon Vault Boy icons to Fallout: New Vegas weapon icons and so on. Itachou renamed to it Vault Boy but a lot of icons don't have the Vault Boy, like headwear and items, so that's where the name doesn't fit. Now we have for example two weapon icon categories, that needs to become one. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 19:44, September 16, 2011 (UTC)

  • Shall I just merge them to one icons category then, as suggested above?

Vandal Edit

Hi there, I would like to report a vandal, an anon,, has added profanity to the Legion ear page. Just thought I would bring this to attention. Thanks, TwoBearsHigh-Fiving 04:39, September 17, 2011 (UTC)TwoBearsHigh-Fiving

Clearing the cacheEdit

You said something about clearing a cache yesterday so that I could see chat normally again, but you didn't respond when I asked how. Could you tell me please; it's making my new job a bit difficult ;). TheGuardianCalligraphyGuardianoftheWastesTag

Heavyweight. Edit

Hello GhostAvatar,

Should the Heavyweight perk be added to the infoboxes of affected weapons, or left as a line of text in the Notes?

I've also asked Jspoelstra about this, and thought I'd get more opinions. I'm fine either way, but as Jury Rigging is now only required in the infobox, should Heavyweight be the same? Obviously it's only a few weapons and may not be worth the bother, but it would make the pages a bit tidier.

All the best, --FourWayDiablo(talk) 18:44, September 18, 2011 (UTC)

That is a very good point. I won't alter any pages yet as I imagine this may turn into a contentious issue, but the more I think about it, the more I agree. A short while ago I was against even removing Jury Rigging from Characteristics, but you are right about a potential info-swamp. Minimalist would be best. --FourWayDiablo(talk) 19:04, September 18, 2011 (UTC)

Chugach OverlookEdit

A terminal during the first quest refers to it as Chugach Overlook AFS (air force station). Undead Hat 08:24, September 19, 2011 (UTC)

Chugach AFSEdit

Here is the proof of Chugach:

base id: 0x0100c069 edid: DLC02ProtocolNote02 full: 12.1b

1.1b: Diversionary tactics in Martial Evacuation

In the event of a military evacuation of the City of Anchorage, Overlook AFS personnel may be called upon to discharge flares. Primary flare function will be to relay short-wave radio messages in the event of wide-scale comm failure.

It is also referred to as "Chugach Overlook AFS" at the very top of a terminal, where all the TermLink and RobCo 2075-2077 stuff is.

And here is the proof of the spelling:

Flares may be used to simulate hostile exchanges only under direct order of Elemndorf AFB Commanding Officer. base id: 0x0100c068 edid: DLC02ProtocolNote01 full: 12.1a

News Post Edit

I found a great article to add to the news post however it is quite long and on one news post I made Ausir informed me not to add the whole article but put up the Fallout related info and link the rest. The difference with this though is that the whole article is about Fallout so should I include the whole thing. Here's the article in qustion: --RAMRam.ShyGuy 12:37, September 19, 2011 (UTC)

P.S. I know everyone else has told you this but congrats on the promotion. Your a incredible editor and someone who serves as a great example to the rest of the community.

A problem with chat. Edit

Hello Ghost. Recently, I've been having quite a severe problem with chat. I'm not quite sure how or why this has happened, but whenever I join chat, the names of those currently in chat do not show up on the sidebar, and I can only see the occassional comment being made. Any comments I do make don't register and so don't show up. Now, forgive me for being nosey, but I couldn't help notice that Guardian said something above about a problem he was having with chat. I don't know if this is the same, it's just a thought I had. At first, I thought this problem was just lag or bad connection, and that it would sort itself out in due course. Alas, it has not, and it has almost been a week since I encountered this problem. I am asking for your help in this matter, and I would be very grateful if you can. That is, if it's anything you can even help with. --SigpictureLove and Tolerance!~ 15:01, September 19, 2011 (UTC)

Contacting the winners of the LR Giveaway. Edit

Hey Ghost just wondering when we are going to receive an email or notification, I noticed the rules are pretty strict when it comes to the amount of time passed. It says we have 48 hours to respond but I'm not sure when those 48 hours end since I haven't gotten a message. I really hope you can straighten this out, I'm excited about winning, and I'm also a bit worried that those crucial 48 hours don't run out before I get an email from you guys. --Felix Brehh 22:42, September 21, 2011 (UTC)

I too am worried that I have missed out in sending you something, I thought I would have had an email by now. Please say I did not miss out on this, I am rather exited about digging in for a DLC I did not think I would have the money to buy. --Hyattsminion 20:59, September 22, 2011 (UTC)

Hey Hyattsminion, I got a message from Tae, he said he'll send us the email soon, don't worry about the 48 hour thing, he told us that was just there to make the winners give them the info they need as soon as possible, but you'll get an email telling you about what information to provide. We won't miss anything. --Felix Brehh 21:02, September 22, 2011 (UTC)

Thanks a bunch, Felix! I am kinda noobish to all this, I edit pages but never conversed with the Wikia system. Just shocked and elated I won something I really wanted and it wasn't a door prize at a wedding for someones friend/family who dragged me there! A odd shaped set of pot holders just pales in comparison! ----Hyattsminion 21:10, September 22, 2011 (UTC)

Commisary terminals Edit

Just wondering, should they be added diretly to the Lonesome Road page? I would consider them worthy of appearing, because they offer repair options and act as merchants. I was contemplating adding them to the characters list, but I wasn't sure if it was appropriate. Your thoughts?

Thanks, XxSick DemonxX 17:29, September 22, 2011 (UTC)

Escort Hannibal Edit

Why you did it with my "Approximate route of the slaves caravan"....? I made ​​this marsshrut parallel quest... you do not like the quality?--Ergon-nomos 21:05, September 22, 2011 (UTC)

I can not agree with you, it's not a gaming strategy, it's pre-coded route of the caravan, it is the same for all players, it seems like the trade routes of caravans..! --Ergon-nomos 00:00, September 23, 2011 (UTC)
Okay, I will not argue, you more visible ...--Ergon-nomos 07:12, September 23, 2011 (UTC)

Let's start a Riot!!!Edit

Alright, so I noticed that there are three different types of Riot armor in the DLC Lonesome Road...Sadly this wikia does not seem to have any "valid images" of all three of these armors. So I came here today to ask you to kindly upload some of these images as I did notice you have the ability to and I don't have Lonesome Road for the PC. And i'm in the process of improving all three of the articles such as the Elite Riot Armor. And also could you check the work I've done with the characteristics section of the Elite Riot Armor I'd like to know what you think so I can decide what to do with the other two. Sincerely, --Tim to the Adams 21:22, September 22, 2011 (UTC) P.S. And how do you add moving 8 or 12 bit images to your signature and or talk page?

I understand the images, but can you explain the signature in depth and where to go and how to do it. Wikipedia seems to spit in my face every time I try. Thanks. Sincerely, --Tim to the Adams 21:32, September 22, 2011 (UTC)

Armor imagesEdit

Hello my friend ;), it's been a long time!

I already talk about that with Jspoelstra and he was agree with me on this subject, and we thought to ask your opinion on that.

I always like the NIF renders since they are higher quality, more focused on the clothing in question and therefore having a more neutral view than the Geck renders , but in another point, the GECK renders are pretty nice too and adding something different of NIF renders. They are more alive and also a more faithful representation of the model in-game, it is better for a ​​direct immersion with the Fallout universe unlike NIF renders made ​​to be neutral.

So I thinking, we can keep NIF renders as always in the infobox and put a GECK render in the gallery section, I also saw that some people prefer the GECK render and with that way, everyone will be happy, and the two complementing each other perfectly. What do you think? Itachou [~talk~] 08:03, September 23, 2011 (UTC)

All right, I'll take care of the GECK renders gradually ;). Ho also I forgot, congratulation for your bureaucrat promotion, and keep up the good works as always my friend =)! Itachou [~talk~] 16:44, September 23, 2011 (UTC)

about that contest... Edit

I was just wondering if you had contacted the winners of the Lonesome Road giveaway yet...not trying to badger, but it's the third day, and i have been staring at my wiki page and my e-mail waiting for a message, but none yet...any info you could give me would help, thanks! Smashua 14:21, September 23, 2011 (UTC)

Perk sectionEdit

I don't know about adding a perk section... You're suggesting to double-list perk stats, in the infobox as well as on the page? Looks a bit redundant to me. Would have to see an example. Another thing, I'd like to activate the Fallout 3 robots and computers achievement track today (Ausir's okay'd it). At the same the OWB quest track can be disabled and should an LR quests achievement track be started? Only 9 quests. And are the Van Buren characters still worth a track? I'd like to keep the Fallout 3 locations track for a while, a lot of refids and cellnames are still missing. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 16:31, September 23, 2011 (UTC)

Need some help with this Signature thing. Edit

Hey Avatar, just wondering if I could make my signature picture a bit smaller and still keep it animated. This is my signature now --Felix Brehh New Vegas Intro 5 20:54, September 23, 2011 (UTC)

But I was hoping I could reduce the size so it wouldn't be too eye catching. Any tips or ideas on how? I figured out how to shrink it but it doesn't stay animated once I do.

Vandal. Edit That guy is going around replacing the content on pages with the word "cunts". I assume the appropriate action will be taken. Almighty Higgey Click here to reply! Goku_special.gif

tell me if im being paranoid Edit

its getting pretty late and still no email concerning the lonesome road giveaway, i know i already asked, but i'm just so eager...does someone else handle the notification? any extra info would help, thanks! i promise i wont bug you anymore lol. Smashua 03:37, September 24, 2011 (UTC)


I have disabled the OWB quests achievement track and enabled the the Fallout 3 robots and computers track. Shall we make people aware by a site notice? Jspoel Speech Jspoel 12:36, September 24, 2011 (UTC)


I interpret this sentence from the policy as the important one: "A signature should not affect surrounding text to a great extent." I also do not consider an animated gif to be what the policy refers to as more than one image. The people I contacted had height problems, and their sigs were disrupting text around them. So, no, I don't think you need to change your sig. And I'm not going to go around measuring pixels for other people either. It's just a matter of unobtrusiveness. Cheers.--Gothemasticator 21:04, September 24, 2011 (UTC)

Perk sectionEdit

I think a perk section on weapon pages could be helpful. Then, we could reserve the infobox for information about the unmodified weapon only. I would like to see it done as a table template, though, to discourage rambling and redundant mini-essays. The only reason we really added jury rigging to the infobox was to relieve the messiness and non-standardization of jury-rigging info being added to weapon articles. A new section with a tidy table would serve the same purpose.--Gothemasticator 02:40, September 25, 2011 (UTC)

Tim to the AdamsEdit

Hello Ghost ;)

The user named Tim to the Adams sent me a message telling that he have been banned at The Vault for a year by you for an undisclosed reason.

I know you my friend, so I know there is a reason behind but it is not specified on the ban log and I would like to respond to Tim to the Adams with a proper justification. Why have you banned him? Itachou [~talk~] 03:31, September 25, 2011 (UTC)

All right, I will tell him that the block could be lowered if he promises to not violate the rules again, to have a good behavior, and that the next offence will not be reduced or removed. I'll let you know about his reply =). Itachou [~talk~] 17:24, September 25, 2011 (UTC)


Hey, Ghost

DarthOrc and I are having a little dispute over a subject and I'd like to ask you to voice your opinion in it. The subject at hand is whether or not the Sink Central Intelligence Unit should be considered a 'Notable Repair expert' on the Repair page. If you look at our conversation on our talk pages, I think you'll be able to figure out our personal views. Thanks, Kastera (talk) 05:19, September 25, 2011 (UTC)

question Edit

hey ghost, do you think we should add mods to the upgraded damage of weapons? Like the LAER is affected by laser commander,bloody mess, lord death, yought you died, and lonesome road. what about the 30% added by the prismatic lens. same with every other gun in fallout. I mean it would help people choose what they want to use, with the extra information. ENCV 08:40, September 25, 2011 (UTC)


Might not be such a bad idea, but the infobox has the advantage it works well with calculations/multiplications, and that's gone once you place the perk statistics outside of it. Also, this was the last DLC, it could still be managable. And I was thinking about the collapsible infobox, can't we use that to hide some less important statistics. But if we do it, the damage related perks should stay in the infobox and the more unrelated perks, like Heavyweight can be added to a perk section. Can you make an example of how it should look like? Also useful for a forum thread. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 15:27, September 25, 2011 (UTC)

  • I know how to edit the community corner, I can access it by admin dashboard, community corner. And I can change the site notice by using Porter's last edit. But what's the difference between these 2 mediawiki pages and which should I use? And do we have some kind of list of them?
  • I updated the community corner, but it did not link to the correct page. What went wrong?

Community Message pop-up. Edit

Hey Ghost, just wondering if there was a way to fix the pop-up that tells us the Community Messages have been updated. Currently it redirects to a non-existent page and I believe it should be redirecting us to If there is any way you could fix this it would be greatly appreciated. --Felix BrehhUser Avatar talk 17:28, September 25, 2011 (UTC)

The link should be fixed now. Cheers --Anon(Talk) 17:44, September 25, 2011 (UTC)

Mediawiki pagesEdit

Allright, good to know it's been fixed. Do we have a mediawiki pages list by any chance? Jspoel Speech Jspoel 18:10, September 25, 2011 (UTC)

GRA Plasma Defender Edit

Just nominated that for deletion. Just think you should be aware since it's happened before. Best regards, Almighty Higgey

Vandal. Edit Sorry to bother you again, but you seem to be the only admin on right now. That cheery fellow is a vandal as you'll discover upon looking at his first contribution. Best regards, Almighty Higgey

GRA Plasma Defender Edit

Hey, I wanted to let you know that there actually is a weapon called GRA Plasma Defender. There's no new weapon modifications for pre-existing weapons already in the game. All the weapons modifications are for weapons added through GRA. So there's a GRA Plasma Defender, GRA Plasma Pistol, GRA 12.7mm SMG, and some others. It took me a while to create that page dude, and you deleted it and changed it to a redirectory page, please don't do that in the future. --Deus Gladiorum 00:58, September 26, 2011 (UTC)

I apologize, I never meant any offense or negative attitude, I was just a little irritated that I had to find out about it on my own without being consulted or anything. Anyway, I am sure about the name and many other things, I've researched a lot of this over the course of the day (clearly a productive day haha), for example here: And there's another 2 pages that have weapons designated "GRA..." Again, sorry for the inappropriate tone, and thanks for responding to my message anyway. --Deus Gladiorum 01:19, September 26, 2011 (UTC) Alright, thanks a lot for the help :) --Deus Gladiorum 01:51, September 26, 2011 (UTC)

Help with style, please? Edit

Regarding your change from em dashes to parentheses in Protectron (Fallout 3), will you give me some help, please?

I originally made this change on 2011-09-16 as part of a cleanup of the paragraph. I tend to use a pair of non-spaced em dashes when a required stop doesn't seem sufficient to justify parentheses.

Of dashes, the WP MOS says,

Use dashes sparingly. More than two in a single sentence makes the structure unclear; ...

Any guidance you can give me regarding what is preferred in this wiki will be helpful; I don't want to work at cross purposes to anyone here.

(Please reply here; I'm watching the page.)

Thank you! UncleBubba 01:08, September 26, 2011 (UTC)

Oh, and thank you for the note about piped links; I'll keep that in mind.
Would that be a good note (or footnote) for the local Editing Guidelines page? UncleBubba 01:20, September 26, 2011 (UTC)
Well there is a complex answer, with which there is no real right answer. This is because pairs of em/en dashes, parentheses, and pairs of commas all serve the same function in many respects. You was correct in using something other than a pair of commas, since the sentence already contained a comma. Using an alternative method to clarify the sentence structure was needed. However, em/en dashes are rarely used on this wiki - hence why it was changed by other editors. I simply stepped in and used the third alternative to prevent edit warring on the matter. I would suggest in future to use the more common alternative to prevent such edit disputes, especially since many editors are of the younger generation.
As for the piped linked, it already exists in Help:How to edit a page#Links and URLs. User avatar tagUser Avatar talk 01:30, September 26, 2011 (UTC)

Ah, alright. Sorry about that. That you for informing me. :) DesertRangerRuin 02:15, September 26, 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for the information, GhostAvatar--it makes sense. I want to follow local practices, and this helps. You don't need to worry about edit-warring, though--I try my best not to do that kind of stuff. Thanks also for the link on links; I looked in a few places but didn't find that one (doh!).
Thanks again for taking time to answer! I've done enough admin work to know how busy you folks get, and I appreciate your help. UncleBubba 03:47, September 26, 2011 (UTC)

GRA abbreviationsEdit

I did some work on the GRA weapon templates. Don't know of how much use they will still be because a lot of GRA weapon pages are already created, but can you take a look at the abbreviations? Is it |Games=FNV or |Games=FNVGRA? Same thing for {{Games|FNV}} or {{Games|FNVGRA}}. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 16:14, September 26, 2011 (UTC)

  • I take it that's FNVGRA in both cases. Also adding some GRA weapon (mod) navboxes at the moment and improving those pages. I'm curious to see if the weapon's names are correct. We will know tomorrow.
