Archiving talkpageEdit

Why did you archive your talkpage? You're nowhere near 32k of content or 40 messages. You do know of the new policy rule about this, right? Jspoel Speech Jspoel 19:49, May 8, 2012 (UTC)

10k?? That's only a few messages. I can hardly believe Clyde said that, he knows enough of the new policy. You can read about it here. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 20:02, May 8, 2012 (UTC)
Hey Mara. You can also read the discussion page in the fora. It was 32KB which was the final agreed upon limit (the originally proposed one had been even higher). --Skire (talk) 20:05, May 8, 2012 (UTC)

Explain Why please. :P Edit

Why did you get rid of my Edit?? It was a Apparel that was Noteable based on the page Joeph sent me to. Clothing that raises stats right??

Please Double check. Edit

Could you check what i did in Noteable loot?? im a Wikia Noob :P

hay whats the big deal taking down my edit --Zac115 21:18, May 17, 2012 (UTC)zac115

NP. I hope you didn't mind me cutting in like that, trying to be more proactive with NUN promotion to editors who are stuggling with reverts. Agent c 21:55, May 17, 2012 (UTC)

Small Edits Edit

Hrmm? Is there something wrong with changing "at" to "within"? Personally, it sounds better, and flows a little better when reading the article. I am Legacy Tech. 18:50, May 30, 2012 (UTC)

Friendly reminder Edit

Hi, Great Mara. Just a quick reminder - remember to use {{subst:Rwwr}} for the template, so it works properly. Thanks =) --Skire (talk) 20:03, June 6, 2012 (UTC)

Some R&R Edit

I have a feeling you could tell me many a horror story. :') What did you go in as, anyways? I'm going in as a diver. Not sure about the specifics yet, (I'll probably go in as an underwater welder.) I'll be talking to the recruiter again about that when I get back from Norway in August. Dragon Skål! 05:12, June 10, 2012 (UTC)

I worry about not being able to keep up either. :') It'll be nice though, because if I can, they provide free college courses along with providing the Apprenticeship I need before being able to kick-start a diving career. Not sure I can handle being a nuclear inspector, so I'll probably rely on being a Scuba instructor or something as a fall-back/retirement option. Dragon Skål! 05:20, June 10, 2012 (UTC)

re: Talk pages Edit

Sorry, I edited it because I saw two errors. I didn't know it wasn't allowed to just correct spelling errors. Anyway, it won't happen again. The Enclave shall prevail! 06:17, June 10, 2012 (UTC)

Howitzer Edit

Almost all PC players have some sort of mod, so it'll be hard to find a video without it. I do believe it because I personally recall such an event happening during my playthrough of Eureka! --Skire (talk) 19:31, June 11, 2012 (UTC)

I played through all questlines on Xbox 360. I also remember that Howitzer being destroyed.--Bunny2Bubble 19:34, June 11, 2012 (UTC)


What does noindex do? Anyway, it leaves a red link as a category. Can you remove it? Jspoel Speech Jspoel 15:39, June 13, 2012 (UTC)

Did you add that then because you don't want to be found on the internet? Looks a bit unnecessary to me, you have a nickname anyway. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 15:52, June 13, 2012 (UTC)

Elijah? Edit

Really? I could of sworn he had a speaking part in there somewhere:P--Bunny2Bubble 08:50, June 15, 2012 (UTC)

Ok, for now we'll keep him off. If you see something, don't hesitate to put him back on there, I'll do the same.--Bunny2Bubble 08:58, June 15, 2012 (UTC)

Vandal Edit

Good catch on that one. Good think I decided to come one last time. He's gone.--Bunny2Bubble 07:06, June 19, 2012 (UTC)

Anon's edit. Edit

Hi, Great Mara! I did realise that he deleted information he himself added, but that doesn't make the information invaluable; I actually think it was a good addition, don't you think? It deserves to be in the Notes section. --C'n-Frankie -ArroyoTalk 17:14, June 21, 2012 (UTC)

Sorry, Great Mara, I hadn't got the gist of the message (read it quickly). You're right. However, I don't think capitalisation was necessary; it doesn't look good one anyone's talk page, and I'm sure you wouldn't like it on yours. Cheers, --C'n-Frankie -ArroyoTalk 18:10, June 21, 2012 (UTC)

LuckMann Edit

That's interesting Mara. I'll look in to those IP's next time this happens.--Bunny2Bubble 17:37, June 22, 2012 (UTC)

Overdue bugsEdit

I don't know why the pages aren't showing up in the verification overdue category. I'll ask Grunny about it one of these days. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 21:39, June 24, 2012 (UTC)

It's some cache issue, for some reason you have to null edit a page before they show up in the category. Detroit lions Hawk da Barber 2012 21:48, June 24, 2012 (UTC)

Re:Brahmin Edit

Whoops, I did that wrong XD The history I've learned about that was from a while ago. So was his edit correct or not? --Skire (talk) 17:47, July 15, 2012 (UTC)

Well thanks for letting me know, I want to get it right - what do you suggest we do? --Skire (talk) 12:09, July 16, 2012 (UTC)

Take a look at Forum:Concerns regarding the Bug Verification Project, along with our content policy, specifically the bugs section (I'm sure you know it like the back of your hand). There is nothing that justifies indiscriminate, systematic tagging of bugs for verification simply because there aren't any platform tags. The project should be geared towards actually adding platform tags, not basically marking them for deletion (ends up happening most of the time). Just because they do not have specific platform tags does not mean the bug is not real. And as per policy, if a bug in question is not dubious or suspicious, there is no reason for it to be marked for verification. The documentation on {{Verify}} states the template is to be used for facts that need verification - a lack of specific platform tags does not equate to the entire bug needing verification, as in questioning its truth value. --Skire (talk) 20:27, July 16, 2012 (UTC)

You removed my valid edit. It's rude & ur not to do that again, or I'll call the mods. The typos and grammar will be fixed, so do NOT remove my text from the Dick Johnson. K thanks.

Cured Edit

He has been taken care of. Thanks!--Bunny2Bubble 17:45, July 18, 2012 (UTC)

NL Policy voteEdit

Hey Mara. Since you're a big-time editor here and you know the policy like the back of your hand (assuming you know the back of your hand well), can you take some time to vote on the policy in the fora? I simply want as many votes to be in as possible, to seal the deal, especially votes of the more significant editors. Thanks =) --Skire (talk) 21:02, July 27, 2012 (UTC)

Let's do this again... Edit

Ok... I will post my changes again in Parker's-Site. Since this was a video about the bug it was completely relevant to the topic even if the version of the game was german. So if you delete something, please write a comprehensible explanation of your actions because nazi-ing around isn't the goal of a wikia.


Thanks Edit

Thank you for removing the vandalism by on my Talk Page --Blacknlrose (talk) 23:50, August 2, 2012 (UTC)

Jacobstown lodgeEdit

Weapon repair kits seem to have been listed as notable due to their limited amount of fixed locations in game. Although you have a great point of them being easily created massively out of relatively easy-to-find parts, I think these few locations should be listed. 21:45, August 9, 2012 (UTC)

Halo Nations Edit

Infuriating place, isn't it? They banned me, but I still left my piece over my talk-page. Feel free to deliver any of my points straight to those ignoramuses if you get the chance. ;) See you around, Mara. Dragon Leon Skål! 11:54, August 25, 2012 (UTC)

I will absolutely partition for your rights to be restored so you can further represent your case. If he refuses, I will add it to the 'Updates' section on my forum at CC. And yes, his constant need to remove my counter-points is quite amusing. I added that as well to my forum. Dragon Leon Skål! 04:18, August 27, 2012 (UTC)
Sent him a message. I'll update you on his response. If there is one. Dragon Leon Skål! 04:27, August 27, 2012 (UTC)
He refused to remove your ban. However, he reduced it to just 2 hours. Try editing your talk-page. Not sure if that's still there or not. Dragon Leon Skål! 04:51, August 27, 2012 (UTC)

Nipton Gutsy Edit

Hi! What's so "specific" about this particular Gutsy? Looks pretty normal to me... except it's leveled and starting at PC_level 11 it becomes a Mister Gutsy with DT 25. Check for "LvlGutsy" in the GECK, if you don't believe me. --Theodorico (talk) 22:52, September 18, 2012 (UTC)


Here's a screenshot for your convinience.

Yeah, there's a small trick in this leveled list - it has "Calculate from all levels <= PC's level" checked, so even at level 37 there's 50/50 chance to get either a "Mister Gutsy Prototype" (DT 0) either a "Mister Gutsy" (DT 25).--Theodorico (talk) 00:01, September 19, 2012 (UTC)

Bigsley Edit

Just FYI, I never said Skyrim, I said Oblivion, which was released BEFORE Fallout 3. Even if it was released after, it doesn't matter. Both Bigsley and Dyus are visually similar and act the same way, and have the same voice, regardless of which game came first. My edit is restored.

Fallout: ApprenticeEdit

Hey, Mara! I was wondering if you would like to upload an electronic signature? I am currently creating the Grand Prize for Chad's Fallout: Apprentice, and I am wanting to create a plaque that has all of the consenting leadership's signatures and thanks on it! ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 14:23, October 15, 2012 (UTC)

While vs. Whilst Edit

Both "While" and "Whilst" are proper American-English words. Whilst might be of an older English, but it is still a proper word to use here. (It is also considered more literary, which is what we strive for on an encyclopedia of knowledge.) ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 16:58, October 18, 2012 (UTC)

While it had more use found in the UK, it was still a word born from American minds. However, I digress. After looking it up, I see it's considered more archaic than literary. Feel free to make your changes again. I just thought it strange for an anon to all the sudden start making systematical changes for something so minor. ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 17:05, October 18, 2012 (UTC)
Sounds like fun on a bun. ;) Sorry for the trouble, then. Get a little paranoid myself when I see changes like that. Bias takes over when I see them being made by the anonymous, as well. There's quite a few times where users feel like they have to dumb down articles. Thanks for stopping by and clarifying. :) ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 17:13, October 18, 2012 (UTC)
Probably for simplicity's sake. :P You start looking into pywikipedia as well if you're messing around with Python. ;D ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 19:22, October 18, 2012 (UTC)

A somewhat random suggestionEdit

Hi Mara. I know I've talked to you somewhat about this topic in the past, but I would like to bring it up again if you don't mind: I really think you should run for an administrator position here. Now I realise you expressed in the past that you uninterested, but I honestly see a lot of great admin-like qualities - professionalism, editing consistency/quality/quantity, and helpfulness. You've also been around and editing for awhile, and are our oldest still-active patroller. While this shouldn't be too immediate, I hope you can take it into consideration. See you around. --Skire (talk) 18:51, October 18, 2012 (UTC)

Permaban reviews Edit

I'd like to get your input on Forum:Vote:_Permaban_Reviews, if you could. I've extended the vote for a day, as I feel it's a very important decision that will effect how we deal with bans. Please add your views if you could. The Gunny  380px-USMC-E7 svg 17:26, October 20, 2012 (UTC)

Re:Cass imageEdit

It has been taken care of =) Many thanks for reminding me. --Skire (talk) 22:38, October 31, 2012 (UTC)


Yes, I understand. I couldn't find any correlation and was in the process of undoing before I noticed it was done already =) Nevertheless I don't want the site to lose another editor, if it can be helped. --Skire (talk) 21:26, November 9, 2012 (UTC)

Invitation to join the 2012 Nukapedian of the Year selection board Edit


This is a message indicating that you are one of seven or nine users selected to be part of the 2012 Nukapedian of the Year selection board. As the board, we will be determining the final winner, as well as serving in other key roles during the entire selection process. It is planned that we will meet on occasion in the Chinese FO Wiki chat to discuss matters. Please ensure that, if you are accepting this invitation, you will be available for these meetings, as functioning with an even number of members may result in an impasse.

Please reply on my talk page to respond to this invitation. You may also post suggestions regarding the organisational process or the entire programme there as well. By accepting this invitation, you will have made yourself an official member of the board, and are thus obliged to attend its meetings and make objective decisions throughout this month. By declining this invitation, you will not be a member of the board and thus free from any of its obligations. Another user will then be invited in your stead.

I look forward to hearing from you!

--Skire (talk) 21:49, December 6, 2012 (UTC)

I understand that there may be conflicts, and so if you think you will be unable to attend to all this, then feel free to pass it up. I don't want it to be burdening, especially amidst your current duties in real life. Let me know. --Skire (talk) 01:14, December 8, 2012 (UTC)

Hi again! I know there are uncertainties about whether or not you want to/can be a member of out board, but if possible I'd like a reply on my TP by Wednesday. This is just so I can organise things with some time left. There's a whole back-up list so don't worry at all if you're too busy or your schedule is too tight for this. See you around =) --Skire (talk) 23:58, December 10, 2012 (UTC)
No problem at all, good luck on your finals! --Skire (talk) 20:26, December 11, 2012 (UTC)

Vault 13 canteenEdit

I checked the Vault 13 canteen ID in the GECK loading the Classic Pack and the canteen uses the 00 from the basegame, not a DLC code. So that was a good change.

"Only" Edit

This issue has been disproportionally magnified to a degree that is nothing short of absurdity. The appearances sections have been changed back and forth with no improvement for quite awhile, and J and I have agreed on a standard - "appears only", to change them once and for all. These changes are to be made by the bot (currently User:TheodoricoBot) purely for the sake of consistency. You're absolutely right that both work just as well, so we've simply selected one over the other arbitrarily. It's time to put this matter to rest. --Skire (talk) 00:09, January 16, 2013 (UTC)

Like I said, the issue is really not that significant. I had originally preferred "only appears" too but really it's completely arbitrary as both are totally acceptable. They've already been changed and I believe it's best if we stop prolonging the problem. Anyone was welcome to have a say - they either didn't care or didn't want to say anything. We left a lot of time before I requested some bot work to be done, in case anyone else wanted to speak up. But before I continue, what are your thoughts on it? --Skire (talk) 00:41, January 16, 2013 (UTC)
I'm not super clear on the syntax aspect, or which one is really "American", but I've been thinking about those creatures appearances. The layout policy requires them but like you said we have different pages for each game. On the FO3 deathclaw page, for example, saying "The deathclaw appears only in Fallout 3" is quite frankly false, considering it appears pretty much every other game as well. I agree that it is redundant and even misleading, so maybe we could talk about removing them for creatures articles only? For characters and locations they may be helpful, especially in the case of certain articles, such as Harold. --Skire (talk) 00:53, January 16, 2013 (UTC)
Apart from those two words, perhaps appearances sections in general could use a forum discussion? --Skire (talk) 01:42, January 16, 2013 (UTC)

ADB Edit

Hello, Mara. This is a message that I will be circulating through Nukapedia's Sysops. A while back I had created a more suitable version of the Administrators' Discussion Board as an attempt to help regulate important matters that require immediate attention from the veteran users around Nukapedia. With Fallout 4 on the horizon, I would like to begin making this feature more widely embraced, so that we all are more comfortable and familiar with using it for when the time comes around that we'll need to look towards it the most. What I would like to see is for an example to be set for where certain matters should be discussed within our community, as well as creating an environment where users will know that their issues will be addressed in a timely and fair manner. What does this mean, exactly?

  • Appropriate topics should be addressed within the ADB instead of the normal fora space. Not only is the ADB a general area to condense important topics, but it is also always kept at the top for easy access. (As well as having a place within the Community Messages.)
  • All Administrators, Moderators, Patrollers, and Bureaucrats should make it a priority to check through the ADB at least once every few days or so. This is the duty of mantling the extra tools, after all, and is not too much to ask for.
  • The ADB should make an appearance within new user's welcome message.
  • If a topic within the fora has been made that is of significant importance and affects the wiki as a whole, these topics should be moved into the ADB.
    • It is my hope that these requirements will help our community become more familiar with where they should go to have their grievances and ideas properly heard. Right now, the ADB has been largely ignored because the Sysops have also largely ignored it, and this is unacceptable at times when important matters such as this one are mostly by-passed except for a couple of people. With the chaos that is soon to come with the new title(s), all I am asking is for a bit of responsibility in making sure that we all recognize issues and ideas as they come up, and making sure that we do our parts in seeing them through. Thank you for reading, and I would greatly appreciate some feed-back. Once a general consensus has been reached, possible changes will be taken care of.

Votes Edit

This will be a circulating message to all users that expressed their opinions over my recent discussion and vote. Please make sure to update your votes accordingly to this new information:

  • Info-box Mk.II - For those of you wanting to see an example first, an example for how the changes will look (Keep in mind that this example is in its most basic form.) can now be found here. If a positive community consensus is reached, the new design will become functional here and the community can decide from there whether the final design is appropriate or not on Nukapedia.
  • JunkRadio - I would like to share a quote from the JunkRadio designer himself: "Quotation|I was thinking of adding it to the top left or bottom left corner of the wiki. I can give it absolute positioning, which means that it will display on the top left, regardless of screen resolutions. If necessary, I can make it scroll down with the page as well, although this might distract users from reading the actual pages.|Mark van Alphen"
    • Thank you for reading, and I'll be looking forward to gathering everyone's final opinion over these new changes. Due to the overwhelming support so far for all three changes, only needing minor points to update them for clarity, the vote will continue as normal, and will end on the 23rd as scheduled. If you would like to dispute this, please leave your concerns and reasons behind them over my talk-page. Happy editing! ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 17:02, March 20, 2013 (UTC)

Link updates Edit

Oh, excuse me then for my unrightful undoings. However, I do wish to note that some of these links were not valid. A notice saying that that certain page had not been saved on the Wayback Machine was displayed, for example here. That would actually render the current link(s) useless.

I'm not sure about using singular "they" around here. Wikipedia MoS has no consensus on it. I suppose it shouldn't be a problem around here and was never really discussed... "He/she", "him/her" seems preferable to me personally. --Skire (talk) 01:02, April 25, 2013 (UTC)

Not a problem. I see both used around here and for the sake of consistency and neatness I'll start using "they"/"them" more. As for the GECK, we send a message to User:Jspoelstra or ask for a screenshot from the party in question. I wish my computer was able to run FO3/FNV >_> --Skire (talk) 01:38, April 25, 2013 (UTC)

Sorry about that edit from earlier, I thought that mentioning dead moneys enaccessability compared to the other Dlcs was a worthy notice. (KyleD20 (talk) 18:09, April 26, 2013 (UTC))

Welcome messages Edit

They've made some changes to the wikia bot that adds those recently, but it looks like it has not added any welcome messages at all since the 18th. I'm looking into it right now. The Gunny  380px-USMC-E7 svg 20:00, April 26, 2013 (UTC)

As far as I can tell, some recent changes wikia made had the bot log the welcome template edits on the admin who the attached to the message's edit contributions. At first they did not have a bot flag and showed up in RC. They've now readded the bot flag, but I can find no evidence of the bot adding any templates since abou the 18th, either attributed to the bot account, or to any admin. You can check this easily by clicking the "show bots" link on rc and looking for the "b" bot flag on edits. The Gunny  380px-USMC-E7 svg 22:18, April 30, 2013 (UTC)

Fallout Cultural ReferencesEdit

Why did you get rid of my post im playing fallout 1 right now and found it. P.s im new to wikis.

I was wondering why you deleted my post on fallout cultural references. My fact was legit. P.S im new to wikis --GhostOfBigBoss (talk) 23:24, April 29, 2013 (UTC)

Huh? What are you talking about? I haven't made any edits to the Fallout 3 creatures pages in ages.Leea (talk) 16:59, May 2, 2013 (UTC)

Sierra Madre Edit

About your recent edit to the southwest commonwealth page, moving the Sierra Madre to California because that's where the mountains are. Where is it actually stated that the Sierra Madre Casino is in the Sierra Madre mountains? I don't remember that ever coming up. 00:50, May 5, 2013 (UTC)

Who says the Sierra Madre has to be based off of any of those locations? Maybe they chose that name simply because of the book it's based off of. If anything, I always thought the Sierra Madre was to the east, because of the abandoned bunker, but that was just my guess. Paladin117>>iff bored; 01:35, May 5, 2013 (UTC)

Going by your version the Gremlins Stripe is only refered to as lead antagonist. My version is different from that. Why compare Stripe to a general gremlin or Mohawk instead of the named character of the movie? I strongly prefer the link in names. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 17:30, May 16, 2013 (UTC)

I did Edit

I did read those guides. You had just missed me in the talk. I am EXTREMELY sorry about that. I keep comparing edits, but on each one, the same error has occurred. I would hate to have a bad rep here, I love Fallout and this wiki. --Mr. Black Ops, out. (talk) 05:38, May 17, 2013 (UTC)

Grenade Rifle/Thump Thump/Redvictory/Great Bear Edit

I think it'd be ok to add the real world reference for this. We've got the reference for the standard Grenade Rifle, courtesy of J.E. Sawyer, and it being based on the M79. Dunno where the fella is getting Russian from, though. Richie9999 (talk) 05:42, May 17, 2013 (UTC)

What is this?Edit

You dont have the decency to leave a reason? As bad as the other guy was, at least he left a oneliner so I can put my reason to counter it. You?Laclongquan (talk) 07:23, May 17, 2013 (UTC) [quote]I would have thought the Talkpage template I added to the top of the page said enough. That small encampment and the group opposite the road have nothing to do with Dead Wind Cavern and in now way relates to improving the DWC page[/quote] I beg to differ. From the edit, I said plainly that the location has something to do with DWC, and it's revelant to that. At least it's the nearest fast travel entry point to it, the distance between it and the FTP is the same between FTP to the cavern's mouth. And where do you guys decide Talk page is not a place of discussion anyway? I'd like to jump in, cause this is something stuck in my craw.Laclongquan (talk) 08:22, May 17, 2013 (UTC)

The ProfessionalEdit

I'm not the best with weapons. Better ask Gunny I think. Did some browsing but I can't find it in the template, too complex for me. And I noticed there was a 0.1 multiplier for additional damage in the infobox for The Professional, while the perk says it adds 20%. Looks to me like it should be 0.2 instead of 0.1 then. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 22:35, May 23, 2013 (UTC)


Twice now, you have incorrectly reverted an edit on Caesar's page, in the "behind the scenes section." Yes, C. Julius Caesar claimed Venus as an ancestor through the line of Iulius. Iulius' line would continue to the mother of Romulus and Remus, with their father being Mars. As such, the Caesar's could claim Mars as their ancestor, as well as Venus. The line on Caesar's page currently reads: Although Caesar claims to be the son of Mars, Julius Caesar claimed to be a descendant of the goddess Venus. This implies that the two both claim to be descendant from a diety, but not the same one, despite the fact the historical Caesars did in fact claim Mars as their own blood. For further reference, look at the propaganda of Augustus - his triple god ancestry (Venus, Mars, and the then-deified C. Julius Caesar) forms the foundation for many of his imperial works of art and architecture.—Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs). Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

Infoboxes Edit

I'll take a look at it as soon as I can. Kinda busy irl right now. I'll see what I can do, no promises, thought. Porter made that infobox template so complex that it's pretty hard to change. The Gunny  380px-USMC-E7 svg 01:55, May 25, 2013 (UTC)

The template master has fixed the problem =) Removed an x from the infobox location template and everything was fine again. Ultra complex :/ You can see it on {{Infobox location}}. Not all problem are solved yet but we're making good progress. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 13:54, May 25, 2013 (UTC)
I've looked at the infobox template, and I should be able to add a perk multiplier to crit damage. It'll take me a bit, as I'll have to add quite a few variables. I'll work on it in my sandbox as time permits and see what I can do. Are there any other global perks that effect crit dam? How many do I need to allow for? The Gunny  380px-USMC-E7 svg 17:30, May 25, 2013 (UTC)

Anti-Materiel Rifle 'Editing War' Edit

Could I change it to 'such as the Varmint Rifle or even the BB Gun'? Just wanted to check in case I get kicked out. Is this even the right place to ask this?

Yeah I'm just gonna go ahead and do this now, hope it doesn't get me banned! :)

Good news/bad news Edit

The good news is I finished adding crit damage perks [[User:The_Gunny/sandbox#Infobox|to the infobox]]. The bad news is that as I did this, I realized that the infobox math is incorrect for total perk damage. Check that infobox. With 9 Better Criticals perks (each a x1.5 mult) that laser rifle should be doing something like 800+ crit damage. I'm going to have to completely rewrite the perks sections of that infobox. The Gunny  380px-USMC-E7 svg 21:37, June 3, 2013 (UTC)

Featured articles committee Edit

Hi Great Mara! I would like to invite you for a seat on the Nukapedia featured articles committee. Our goal is to select and approve articles to be used in our featured articles rotation (that shows up on the front page). I have written some criteria here and I believe our first step should be to discuss and make any necessary changes to the criteria. After this, we will check which of the current articles in the rotation are high-quality enough to keep. From there, we can set up a forum page so users can nominate articles or otherwise go through a list to find appropriate ones to add to the rotation. Keep in mind that being on the committee will require some degree of consistency and frequency in checking on the wiki, although it can be at your own convenience. Please let me know whether you are interested in being on the committee. --Skire (talk) 19:30, June 5, 2013 (UTC)

Hey Mara. I'm still waiting on a reply. If you aren't interested or you have a busy schedule please let me know =) --Skire (talk) 19:41, June 12, 2013 (UTC)

The VaultEdit

I figured I should talk to you over here for your convenience. GuardianOfTheWastes was having some trouble accessing his account (don't know if he still is), so you can talk to him about what he's done to reclaim his account. In the meantime, I can remove the editcount junk and Navy IRR userbox if you want. --Kastera (talk) 02:55, June 8, 2013 (UTC)

Insane Survivor Image Edit

I'm not sure if you're familiar with the G.E.C.K., so I'll try to be confusing but basically the insane survivors all have the race "Hispanic", yet the picture is of the race "Hispanic Raider". It's probably just a mistake made by someone who got the image, but it's still incorrect. 21:35, June 18, 2013 (UTC)

User Conduct Edit

The quote I used as justification for removing the content was taken from the Talk, Forum, and Blog pages section of the user conduct page. I notice that it mentions talk pages directly, but are you sure that the ability to remove insulting content doesn't also apply to Blogs and Forums like the title would imply? 07:52, June 27, 2013 (UTC)

Okay. Thank you. 07:59, June 27, 2013 (UTC)

Point being? Edit

"it's a break-action, of course it uses a similar reload mechanic."

I never said they were exactly the same, I stated that the sound effects and cartridge were the only differences.

Keeping up appearancesEdit

What's up GM. Not sure if you recall, but awhile ago you mentioned to me about an appearances template (during the whole "appears only"/"only appears" thing). Well, I managed to make one. It can be found here and abbreviated by {{Appear}}. The first parameter if for the game abbreviation and the second for whether you want a link. It also has to be substituted at this point (still working on it). Let me know what you think? --Skire (talk) 17:29, July 22, 2013 (UTC)

Weapons note Edit

I just checked, and it the note is correct. The ripper is also automatic, so I could might add that in. 69.l25 (talk) 13:05, July 23, 2013 (UTC)

Vault 11 edit question Edit

Regarding a recent edit I made to the "bugs" section of the Vault 11 page: how is being able to preemptively lay mines through a wall where enemies will appear "not notable", while the existence of a dresser that isn't marked as empty, but is indeed empty is notable? It changed how I approached things in the vault infinitely more than an empty dresser did.

Single shotsEdit

When I redid that page, for every weapon that was one shot per reload, I used the DPSreload for DPS. It's stated in the table legend up top if you uncollapse it. That includes just about all the weapons he changed the DPS on: Gauzz rifle, break action shotties, et al. The other changes he made, the ROF changes, I have no idea where he got the info. I double checked the GECK and the info on both the pages and the tables is correct. The Gunny  380px-USMC-E7 svg 16:21, August 11, 2013 (UTC)

I considered doing that. Right now, though, the tables use regular DPS for all non-single shot weapons, and DPSreload on all single shots. Since there is a much greater difference between DPS/DPSreload on single shots than on magazine weapons, I felt it important to not show such a false DPS number on single shots. I thought about using DPSreload for all weapons, but I was worried about the exact scenario that just happened: A new editor who didn't read the table legend would come in and change everything because "it was wrong". To be honest, using DPSreload for all weapons would be a much more correct comparison. We'd just have to deal with people continually changing the numbers, though. I'm open to suggestions. The Gunny  380px-USMC-E7 svg 20:58, August 11, 2013 (UTC)

De-cap guidelines Edit

Greetings - Please show us in this Wiki's style guidelines where "Game statistics" should be capitalized at all times (when standard English grammar rules would otherwise say no). Other Wiki's we edit have specific written guidelines for capitalization, but we don't see one on this Wiki. ThanksDarthOrc (talk) 08:15, August 19, 2013 (UTC)

  • We don't see "damage resistance" as being the same kind of statistic as Intelligence or Charisma, which are character attributes. Its kind of like capitalizing Magazine Capacity or Weight. DarthOrc (talk) 08:33, August 19, 2013 (UTC)

RE:LR Edit

I'll check it when I get back on the computer with the GECK. I'm fairly certain that the infobox is correct. I haven't yet stripped all the GECK data into a spreadsheet for FO3 like I have FNV, and I don't have the GECK on this computer. I really should do something about that.... The Gunny  380px-USMC-E7 svg 16:52, August 25, 2013 (UTC)

Ah.... Edit

I see you're too scared to talk to me. Oh well, I thought more from a scared nerd. =) 21:27, August 30, 2013 (UTC)

Calm DownEdit

Hi Mara,

I appreciate its frustrating, but you need to calm down. The whole red text stuff isn't productive, it just makes things worse.

Maybe take a break for 10 mins or so, then come back, k? I'm looking into the anon too. Agent c (talk) 21:31, August 30, 2013 (UTC)


I think any location not marked on the main world map is considered "unmarked." --Skire (talk) 03:12, September 5, 2013 (UTC)

Throwing knife spear and bugs in general Edit

To be blunt, no, that is not the definition of a bug in any way shape or form. Plenty of things have been set in the GECK that are bugs. Remember the bug with the turrets in the Vault 11 Chamber of Sacrifice and the quest The House Always Wins? Destroying them would fail the quest for no reason. Why? The turrets were "set in the GECK" to be in the Lucky 38 faction. It was clearly a bug, it was even patched later, but under your definition it would not be a "bug" because what happened matched what was set in the GECK. Clearly that's wrong.

In short, I'm restoring the bug. I'm also going to skip quite a few steps and get some admins involved in this too. This is a bug. It has been confirmed as a bug. Your definition of what constitutes a bug is incorrect. Please accept these things and move on. -- Yukichigai (talk) 00:10, September 25, 2013 (UTC)

One other thing I'd like to add as background which may factor into this discussion, namely who I am and what I do. I am not just some random dude with his own peculiar definition of bug. I have spent as much time fixing bugs in this game as I have playing it. Bugs are my specialty. -- Yukichigai (talk) 00:19, September 25, 2013 (UTC)

I would suggest both of you to take the discussion to Talk:Throwing knife spear. This way, others can input more easily, as well as having the discussion in a centralised location. --Skire (talk) 00:15, September 25, 2013 (UTC)

Done. Talk:Throwing_knife_spear#What_is_and_isn.27t_a_bug -- Yukichigai (talk) 00:43, September 25, 2013 (UTC)

I'm just keeping the page in its state before the editing disagreements. The item had been listed under bugs for quite a long time before. I'll be sure to unlock it once consensus or compromise has been reached. --Skire (talk) 01:00, September 25, 2013 (UTC)

I restored your edit to throwing knife spear. Left my reason on Yukichigai's talkpage. I wouldn't consider it a bug. It's supposed to not be affected if it's not in the formlist. But it does make an interesting note. Probably an oversight by the developers. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 11:33, September 25, 2013 (UTC)

Forum discussionEdit

For mass reverting and nothing but malicious intent I did him for 2 weeks. I appreciate that, I was about to go to bed when my phone buzzed for an email,and I saw the messages. Have a good night. --TwoBearsHigh-Fiving Intercom01 08:33, October 12, 2013 (UTC)

"Yes, you generally have to put ammo in their inventory before they'll use projectile weapons."

Agreed. But a recharging weapon might merit a note that it functions like an ordinary weapon with regards to ammo consumption. Escpecially as the recharginn energy weapon (Hyperbreeder) seems like it was made for Veronica.

In response to Maria Edit

Are you implying that you do not like Maria? I found it to be incredibly useful throughout the entire game.--FalloutIsCopasetic (talk) 02:14, October 24, 2013 (UTC)

Sorting and botsEdit

Thanks. The bot went offline and I didn't catch it this morning. Does that sometimes. As for the sorting problem, take a look at the fix I did on shotguns. Using a prefix of <span style="color:transparent;">0</span> keeps the sorting key hidden, but allows you to sort better. It does this because anything other than a number forces mediawiki to sort it as text. By using 045 instead of 45, it sorts properly. I don't have the time right now to check the other parts of the tables, like the energy pistols, for other sort issues, but you should be able to get them to sort right using that trick. If you want to give it a crack, go ahead. The Gunny  380px-USMC-E7 svg 19:58, October 24, 2013 (UTC)


Something's wrong the image display. Some images have cut off of areas, like the FOBOS image on the main page. Tried to fix it a few days ago, didn't work. Same thing with the PC bug image|pc icon image probably . Have to ask Wikia to take a look at it. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 23:17, November 23, 2013 (UTC)

Now I remember they moved all the images of our wiki 4 days ago or so to new server. We got a notice of it. Maybe it has to do with that. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 23:21, November 23, 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for your help Edit

Thanks for correcting the hyperlink. I was actually going to go back and re correct the mistake, but it seems you beat me to it.

Why Edit

Dear Great Mara,

Why are you taking my edits off of the fallout new vegas wiki? All i'm doing is leaving very accurate information about what the in-game firearms are based on in the real world. For example, I added a not to the Hunting shotgun wiki page saying that it is based on the real life Remington 870, which is completely true. The in-game hunting shotgun has a high cheekrest on the buttsock making it not a exact replica.

All i'm doing is providing true information about firearms that is completely related to the game.

I added that parameter. I changed the parameter for user talk page notice from talkpage to usertalk and used talkpage for the article talk page notice. The Gunny  UserGunny chevrons 01:37, January 5, 2014 (UTC)

It uses regular mediawiki transposition. It's just that I wrote it designed to be substituted, so it's a godawful mess to look at in source. It's basically just a bunch of {{switch}} functions, depending on the parameters used. Take a look at the edit diff to see how I added the new parameter.

Hey Mara. See Paladin Hoss on here and General Lord on wikipedia. In each of these cases, the ranks are not bolded because they are not part of the name, even with Hoss, who's first name is not identified. Perhaps it is something we can discuss with others? Personally, I think we should be in line with Wikipedia on this. FollowersApocalypseLogo A Follower  Talk  17:30, February 3, 2014 (UTC)

I don't really think it looks better one way or another, personally. Especially since we went around a while ago and removed the ranks from page names, so shouldn't the bolded text reflect the name of the article? Like I said, I'm not too bothered either way, so long as it's consistent and proper. FollowersApocalypseLogo A Follower  Talk  17:38, February 3, 2014 (UTC)
Hey Mara. I conversed with Clyde and a few other people, and the consensus seems to be that if the rank is preceding the name, it's not bolded as per proper grammar and styling. I know it looks a bit weird, but it is technically proper. The other option is moving the rank to after the name and rewrite a bit (i.e. Delvin was a sergeant in the United States Armed Forces). I think we have to make the change, as we are encyclopedic and this is apparently proper grammar. FollowersApocalypseLogo A Follower  Talk  07:07, February 4, 2014 (UTC)

My first thought was adding them, then I wondered: do damage perks affect mines? It's not like you're holding them like other weapons. I really don't know.

Explosive Bobblehead VideoEdit

Hi, I was wondering why you reverted my edits adding video tutorials to finding the Explosives Bobblehead. You put in your notes that it was against video policy. Which one? I wasn't able to find any specific policy in the Image and Video Policy section. Plus, I've seen similar videos elsewhere on Nukapedia, and found them useful.

This Bobblehead is tough to find, and its location is difficult to describe in words. I personally didn't find it based on the description alone, so I looked up the video on YT. That was proof enough for me that the article would benefit from the video. I can't think of any reason it is unacceptable, but I'm still new here. Please explain.

Thank you.


FO3 assault rifle Edit

It's amazing how many total tallies you have there... Looking at the article history, it would seem that 90%+ of the edits made in the last year to the article have been speculation about its design origin/inspiration. --Skire (talk) 03:05, March 2, 2014 (UTC)

Hellfire Trooper Edit

You're right, I just double checked and that's how it's spelled in the military. Right you are sir, apologies. Enclavesymbol 00:02, March 18, 2014 (UTC)

Marksman Carbine Edit

Hi, that edit that I made on the Marksman Carbine article was because I went to the Nellis array and couldn't find it, only a Grenade Launcher and an Assault Carbine. Perhaps it spawning is a level based occurrence? If so, perhaps the article should express that, if not, maybe it should be made clearer? Me being unable to find it may be down to not looking hard enough, but I have searched the place thoroughly twice now and still no dice. Thanks. Incarnate Sable (talk) 02:58, March 31, 2014 (UTC)

Infobox incompleteEdit

Don't add all those infobox incomplete templates to pages. They clutter the pages. Tell me what you generally want with it, and I'll check it. Or you can check it if you're on a PC. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 23:57, April 1, 2014 (UTC)

Legionary Assassins at HELIOS OneEdit

I honestly don't know. I'd assume that they'd come in through the door, but I can't check that stuff because I play on xbox. It'd be easier if the reflector activation panel wasn't right under the door... Foxi Hooves (talk) 21:54, April 3, 2014 (UTC)

RE: Machete Edit

I remember getting a machete when I was in the arena, but that one was always taken away from me when I was done with Benny. I don't know, maybe its a bug that I've got. Thank you for the explanation, anyway. Leea (talk) 12:33, April 19, 2014 (UTC)

Just a question regarding my most recent edits about characters who aren't saveable; Wouldn't you want to add that name as opposed to removing the note all together? The Guy Lying In The Grass (talk) 05:29, May 8, 2014 (UTC)

Machine gunEdit

I got the idea from The Vault. Looks ok to me. Assault carbine and minigun already have their own overview page (assault rifle and minigun), don't really see a problem here. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 16:45, May 8, 2014 (UTC)

Not sure what you have in mind. Don't expect problems with it to be honest, as I don't ever see add someone weapons to overviewpages like that (other than me) in the past year even. You can create something in your sandbox I can take a look at, if you want to make it concrete. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 17:03, May 8, 2014 (UTC)
I'm not a weapon expert. If you think the service rifle doesn't belong you can remove it. You can also add the {{for}} to some pages you think is appropriate. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 17:13, May 8, 2014 (UTC)
All three weapons to the machine gun overview page I think. They are too slow firing (tested it) to be called a minigun. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 17:54, May 13, 2014 (UTC)

Appearances Edit

I don't understand why most creatures have an appearances section and the ones that dont, i've tried to add in appearances and you undid it. I feel like they should either all have an appearances section or none of them should. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Darth Roxas (talkcontribs). Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

Winner Thursday(I) - Week 30 Edit

You have been given Pushy.

Well, when you have trouble solving an issue, punching might help. Congrats on figuring out one of the locations featured this week. --MountHail (talk) 21:33, May 16, 2014 (UTC)

GNR video Edit

The video is still on the site, File:Fallout 3 (Galaxy News Radio). It's just some of Three Dog's dialogue. Paladin117>>iff bored; 22:01, May 18, 2014 (UTC)

45. cal Submachine Gun Edit

Okay, sorry, but I felt the specifics were a nice thing to put in. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Phoenix0259 (talkcontribs). Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

Winner Friday(II) - Week 36 Edit

You have been given a Pencil.
Your efforts and diligence have not gone unnoticed, and you have been given a small token of appreciation.
A pencil may not seem that useful, but keeping notes or writing down your thoughts will be. Just hope it doesn't break. Congrats on figuring out one of the locations featured this week. --MountHail (talk) 22:05, June 29, 2014 (UTC)
