The HoleEdit

You have been chosen to be this week's Hole's VIP commentator. So, please give your comment below so that it can be put into the blog. This week Arcade and Goris fight. Energy X 11:05, August 4, 2014 (UTC)

Arcade has no chance. Not only is Goris a god damn DEATHCLAW (and an intelligent one at that) but he has already shown his combat abilities by beating the commanding officer of the brotherhood of steel! And what has arcade done? Killed a Mormon with a golf club. Even if Mr Gannon did have his power armour it wouldn't do him any good, whatever way you look at this Goris is going to tear though him like a chainsaw though hot butter. Jasper: The Wonder that is Shroomman! 18:21, August 5, 2014 (UTC)

Ah, it has been put. I made the blog yesterday, though, so it is not a long time. Energy X 19:24, August 5, 2014 (UTC)

Yao guaisEdit

From a Mandarin Chinese speaker's point of view, I cannot describe how laughable "yao guais" looks XD --Skire (talk) 02:15, August 8, 2014 (UTC)


We already have the Tranquility Lane navbox. You can include the few Vault 112 characters/location into that navbox. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 17:08, August 8, 2014 (UTC)

Infobox thingEdit

Hey Jaspy! Could we only link the word "upload" to Special:Upload? It's really the only word that needs to be linked (and it strangely bothers me having those three words in blue XD). Just consider it a favour, if it's not a big deal. --Skire (talk) 01:10, August 10, 2014 (UTC)

According to template documentation the "image" parameter should come before "image size" and "image desc." After all, the latter two modify the content of the first one. Maybe change the order from now would be good... I'm going through with my bot to help you guys out, and to make sure the RC is not as destroyed as my rectum is after Taco Bell. --Skire (talk) 21:39, August 17, 2014 (UTC)

Change on your userpageEdit

To inform you upfront, I'm going to do 1 or 2 changes to your userpage and admin request. Don't be alarmed. I just renamed Dixon's thugs to Dixon's thug (singular) without a redirect so that's why. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 14:40, August 19, 2014 (UTC)

Our favourite blog anonEdit

Any chance I could persuade you to 'remove' that anon, as a first act to settle in as an Administrator? Had to ban them a couple times already, and he caught the attention of other ban hammers as well. Tracked down his I.P. a long time ago, and it is from a private residence that does not cycle - that along with the fact that he literally counts down the time until the weekly digests come up, as well as when his bans are up, to complain, for months, shows that he is definitely only around to be a nuisance. A really sad one, at that. ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 11:07, August 24, 2014 (UTC)

I remember how that is - the position starts feeling natural pretty quickly. Good luck, speaking of which. ;) I guess it is a good thing that you have our dead period as a calm to get yourself prepared. I just hope you never have to go through the endless spam bot attacks, such as back when NV was first released. ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 11:22, August 24, 2014 (UTC)

A belated congratulations, Jasper! I look forward to working with you as a fellow admin, with you having opportunities to prove your "no" voters thoroughly wrong. --Skire (talk) 01:52, August 25, 2014 (UTC)

Yo Fox: RE Edit

Don't worry about it. When I added that video I had forgotten I had already added it several months ago.

Brandon Fox (talk) 18:12, August 27, 2014 (UTC)


Absolutely sir! Getting right on it. But as a side note, it is better to update link before deletion so red links would not show up for readers during that time. Also makes red link maintenance a bit easier. --Skire (talk) 20:15, August 28, 2014 (UTC)

It's done. Turns out there weren't so many links, mostly leftovers from the navbox (system needs to refresh). --Skire (talk) 20:22, August 28, 2014 (UTC)

Old BenEdit

Don't rename Old Ben to Ben (Freeside). Old Ben is a good nickname and should stay, just like Angry Rick and Easy Pete among others. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 18:30, August 30, 2014 (UTC)

We work with nicknames, there are a few pages that exist. About Lady Jane, I was just thinking about Lady Jane or Jane (Freeside) before you sent your post. I would go with Lady Jane actually. Good nicknames should stay in my opinion. Sometimes it's a thin line what to consider a good nickname, it's something to decide on a case-to-case basis. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 18:48, August 30, 2014 (UTC)
Well, case to case basis is perhaps a bit wrong wording. It has to be reasonably clear. Lady Jane, Easy Pete and Angry Rick are pretty clear to me. Almost everything with Mr. or Mrs. in front of the name loses the Mr. or Mrs. And if you find a real last or first name that also always takes precedence. Some rare cases can be discussed between admins. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 19:03, August 30, 2014 (UTC)

Cut Content Edit

Before I answer any further - is there verification for the cut content? ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 12:24, September 2, 2014 (UTC)

Well, no, that question was rather important. If the cut content exists, then we have to move onto a second question: are the areas he speaks of different cells entirely? If so, then they warrant their own article-page - not a passing CC note. At that point, it would be worthy to mention those cells on respective articles, through the Notes section, but the CC bit still needs to be removed. ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 12:32, September 2, 2014 (UTC)
It is notable on an article if there is a cut cell in the area. But console commands on how to get to it are not notable on standard articles, and are only warranted should the cut areas be entirely separate cells, which would warrant actual articles instead of passing mentions. If an article is created over a cut cell, CC notes would be warranted on those. ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 12:37, September 2, 2014 (UTC)
Every cell is independent - there is no such thing as any two or more cells sharing the same location. For the sake of simplicity, we have always condensed articles down - but when we are looking at cut content that takes place in cut cells, then we list those separately on their own articles - this is something we have done since the wiki's creation.
So here is what I am seeing:
  1. A transcript article ought to be made for the note.
  2. Cut location articles ought to be made for the cut location(s), should they prove to be in different cells than the rest of the vault. This needs verification before we go around creating one or more articles.
  3. A note over the cut locations is warranted, but the console command bit needs to be removed, as those only belong in very specific scenarios, as to avoid clutter. ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 12:45, September 2, 2014 (UTC)
I specifically asked you whether or not that was the case, and no answer was originally forthcoming. If the cut locations have been verified, and are within the same cell as the rest of the vault, then both the info-box needs to be updated, and the layout section. If the cut locations have been verified, and are in different cells than the rest of the vault, then I refer you to what I have already said in this discussion.
In both cases, so long as there is verification, a note should be made. But in the case that the cut locations share a cell with the rest of the vault, then the CC bit still needs to be removed - not only do CC notes not belong in the main body of most articles, but we also have a rule against clipping notes and bugs. ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 12:53, September 2, 2014 (UTC)
We have a specific rule against clipping bugs, and a general precedent rule set over years to not mention clipping on most types or articles. There are only two exceptions I have ever seen: on the general bugs article for each title, and on standalone cut content articles. Clipping notes of any kind have been proven to result in the Domino Effect, where users begin adding clipping notes over every little aspect of the game(s), unless strict restrictions are enacted to limit their notability. ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 13:02, September 2, 2014 (UTC)

Verification Edit

Perfect - it is always nice to discover new information that has eluded us even after all of this time has passed. ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 13:03, September 2, 2014 (UTC)

Miss Fortune Edit

Yes thats what i think when i resize it, is not great quality and it cant realy be considering image limitation size and base game graphic in combinations whit visuals alterations during VATS. Idea whas to show it as perk effect and not like a NPC, if its irelevant fine, but estetic is game it selff and limitations of image size. Just be mor senzitive whit your coments becouse it is what it is. —Preceding unsigned comment added by NEVER BoRN (talkcontribs). Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

Thanks for your helpEdit

Hi Jasper, Thanks for your help on making my signature work, I appreciate it. I want to give you a Kudos but I don't know how to do it here. --Cassie.Y MikuPink534629280947623198Talk 17:57, October 4, 2014 (UTC)

New sheriff in town Edit

Hey Jasper, I don't know if you know already but come the 8th or 9th of November when I would have been Poll guy for a year, I plan to pass the position to someone else due to the fact that I'm beginning to get pretty busy with Year 13 work. I asked in Chat and some people said that you might be interested and I think you would make a great candidate seeing as you've played beyond the modern games in the series to offer more polls. Send me a reply back when you can.

Brandon Fox (talk) 07:24, October 12, 2014 (UTC)

I should let you know that all Poll Masters must undergo the sacred ritual before joining. I figured since it's in a few weeks I'll let you know sooner rather than later. Four litres of chicken blood, a banana, a rubber duck and an umbrella are some of the items involved.

Polls for you Edit

OK, I'm going to have to get used to posting on your page instead of Brandon's, and you're going to have to get used to me flooding your page with Poll Ideas every week. So, here are two for the Saturday Polls:

How accurate do you think Caesar's Legion is to the real Roman Empire?

  • Totally accurate!
  • Mostly accurate.
  • Somewhat accurate.
  • Barely accurate.
  • Not any accuracy at all!

Should there be more "oversized and undersized objects" in the next Fallout game?

  • Yeah! I like collecting those things!
  • No, I don't waste any time on that sort of stuff.
  • There should be just as many as there were in Fallout 3!
  • There should be as many as Fallout: New Vegas had.
  • There should be more than in both games!
  • Less than in either game, I want to SEARCH for them!
  • Other (comment below)

Leea (talk) 23:25, November 13, 2014 (UTC)

Then you're in luck, because I have over 60 polls on Notepad, with a few more added every other day! Leea (talk) 12:35, November 14, 2014 (UTC)

Checks Edit

Just to let you know - I really do appreciate any help in checking these images. I already had a sneaking suspicion that a few of them were illegitimate, and it will be good to have those sniffed out. Anyways, I have until Wednesday before work starts again, so I will use that time to do some searching. ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 07:38, November 16, 2014 (UTC)

Time up. Edit

Please spend a little time making sure if I did or did not do something first, please. I already left a message for Chad, waaay earlier yesterday before I went into work. The decision is up to him, and maybe J since he sent Chad a message. ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 07:05, November 22, 2014 (UTC)

Getting a tad touchy, are you not? ;) When I sent that message, it was in direct response to your statement. You said the time-limit from Chad was up, which suggested that you were waiting on a decision from him if I did nothing. I responded by stating that I already sent him a message, and was waiting for his response, or J's since he sent Chad a message.

So lay off of the unnecessary aggression, which has been uncalled for since the moment you got yourself involved in a subject you clearly know very little about. This is my last message to you in regards to this conversation, unless a new development emerges. Wikia has no problems with my images still, so after doing a check, I will simply have the images up on CC and the other communities that wish to host the tournament. For here, I will simply keep the game mostly text-based, and I will later re-upload screenshotted images just so that there are at least a few visual examples for our players to go by before jumping into the game.

Good day. ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 20:55, November 22, 2014 (UTC)

Given concerns about "Miscommunication" in the past, I've posted this on CC. Please feel free to chip in. I support the decision you made, even if I wasn't quite ready to make it. Agent c (talk) 21:37, November 22, 2014 (UTC)

Polls Edit

I know I've been (more or less) absent from the Polls lately, but I've been busy. Anyway, here's a poll for you:

Have you ever fought one of the Legendary creatures in melee or unarmed combat?

  • Yeah, and I won!
  • Yeah, and I died!
  • I just shot it up with my ranged weapons, and then dealt the killing blow with my unarmed or melee weapon.
  • No way! I'd never get that close!
  • I might have, I don't remember...

Leea (talk) 12:25, November 28, 2014 (UTC)

Got another one for you, man:

What if there was a mechanic in the next game that you could get "real life" afflictions, such as the flu virus, or food poisoning?

  • Yeah! More realism!
  • No! Realism in games has to quit somewhere!
  • Only if it was part of a hardcore mode.
  • If it had some way to prevent it from happening, or lessen its duration, such as perks or high Endurance, sure.
  • It should have been in the games in the first place!
  • Other (comment below)

Leea (talk) 22:45, December 5, 2014 (UTC)

Poll Suggestions Edit

Been a while since I suggested. I'd like to give one seeing as we're still in the cozy "1st Season" after all ;D

Would you have liked Romance options for your companions in New Vegas if done right?

  • Yes
  • Maybe
  • No
  • Other

When does your playthrough of a Fallout game end?

  • When I've done all the main and side quests
  • When I've seen and explored all Wasteland locations on the map
  • Both of the above
  • When I've killed everyone!
  • It never ends!!
  • Other

Feel free to make revisions to them if you want, I don't mind.

Congratulations! You are a qualified nominee for NotY 2014 and will be moving on to stage II. Please see this blog here for instructions on writing a little introduction for yourself in preparation for the polling stage. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask me on my talk page. --Skire (talk) (via the courier) 23:21, December 10, 2014 (UTC)

Another poll! Edit

Hey there. I've yet another poll for you! I've always wondered what everyone else though of those invisible walls that the developers put where they don't want you to go, so I thought I'd ask everyone which game they thought had the most.

Which newer Fallout game had more "invisible walls" where the developers did not want the player to go past a certain point?

  • Fallout 3
  • Fallout: New Vegas
  • Both!
  • I've never encountered invisible walls of any sort.
  • What are "invisible walls"?

Leea (talk) 12:50, December 12, 2014 (UTC)


Hello! In order to ensure that the competition finishes in a timely manner (the winner is to be announced on New Years Day), it is important that the personal introductions are posted here as soon as possible. Accordingly, I must set a deadline, which will be by the end of the day on Monday, December 15. If you are unable to make the deadline, do not worry! You can still compete in the next stage. --Skire (talk) 23:15, December 12, 2014 (UTC)

Joke kicks Edit

While you may be correct that, when it was first enforced, I alone declared that joke kicks would not be tolerated, you are incorrect that it is not a policy. We had a vote on it at this housekeeping forum vote on chat rule changes, one on which you yourself voted for approval. And while you're also correct that I no longer have any power to force you to not break the chat rules, I would honestly hope that you would abide by them without the need for me to hold you to them. I'll assume that you simply forgot about this vote, as I had to dig it up to be sure we voted on it, but it is on the chat rule page. The Gunny  UserGunny chevrons 01:37, December 18, 2014 (UTC)

Yes, I agree. From now on there shouldn't be any joke kicks, even if Neko was ok with it at the time. It's an official policy and I don't want anyone getting the wrong idea from us admins. Paladin117>>iff bored; 02:03, December 18, 2014 (UTC)

Forum Lock Edit

Cite your policy. Otherwise, it will be an abuse of your administrative position, as our administration policy specifically states that an admin cannot user their tools to settle a dispute. Since I am not breaking any rules, you are making this into a dispute, and you are now threatening me. ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 00:59, December 21, 2014 (UTC)

Then this conversation is an admittance that you will be doing so outside of the boundaries of our policies, as you are incapable of citing any rules that I am allegedly breaking. ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 01:08, December 21, 2014 (UTC)

Forum Response Edit

Peace helped me realize what he is shooting for with his segment, so I will respond to you on here from now:

  • "We work on a "textual/visual correlation" system and have it officially supersede the general rule - does it look or seem similar? To the dates of release match up? If so, add it with no need for a developer confirmation. In order to cite these references we could simply link to what they allegedly reference, and explain the correlation in full. Should a certain reference be contested, we can handle it on a case-by-case basis and discuss it on the article talk page, working on a community consensus."
    • That is all I have ever asked for. An example I have used in the past, is that I do not dispute the existence of our speculation over That Gun being a reference to Blade Runner. With its convincing citation(s), it easily constitutes geek knowledge, instead of simple speculation. My only concern, has been with speculation being added willy-nilly, with absolutely nothing to back it all up. Salient Green is the perfect example for that, as absolutely no citations have been added, except that the cultural correlation shares a similar name. That is it. That is not a convincing argument.
  • "We remove the "textual/visual correlation" system and work on a "developer confirmation" one, only adding references that the developers have clarified are references, and citing said confirmation."
    • I would actually oppose this. If we needed developer confirmation for everything, this wiki would hardly exist. It seems to me, that it would be better to remove the visual correlation rule, or to make it into a guideline, instead. That is my personal opinion, because it would also work to remove the more general rule, or make it into a guideline. ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 18:07, December 21, 2014 (UTC)


It is a fair compromise, but I do not see the matter so black & white. Here is what I see, that needs to be discussed:

1. If a rule has been written vague, when it does not need to be vague, then there is no purpose for creating more specific rules to compliment it. For instance:

  • It is great to have a vague rule that says administrators can set their ban times, as there is no conceivable way we could make specific rules for every scenario. This way, admins can ban on circumstance, and should it be unfair, the community can just dispute it, or admin consensus can be used to change it. Or, hell, the banning admin could simply be asked to change their ban.
    • However, it is not great to, say, have a chat rule that says not to be offensive, and leave it that vague. Under that rule, almost every user can be banned, as anyone can be offended by anything. In this case, a vague rule does not need to exist - only very specific rules.

2. Should we create an official sanctions, where the community can get together, and bypass standard rules in unique situations? This is not just over speculation, as there was already the time where it was being suggested that we ignore our inactivity policies for a select few users. Creating an official sanction would make these exceptions much less controversial, and much more uniform.

Issue - 19/12 - Camalex, Drifter and JasperEdit

An issue/argument involving the three of you (Camalex97, TheLoneDrifter0, JASPER42) on 19/12/2014 has been brought to my attention. I have reviewed the chatlogs with the assistance of The Ever Ruler and Mounthail, and we have decided upon the following action:

  • You are all given a general warning regarding conduct between the three of you. In short: if you can’t say anything nice, or at least neutral, don’t say anything at all. Further insults or baiting will result in a ban.
  • The comments from TheLoneDrifter0 at points clearly went outside the bounds permitted by rule 7 (Dont be a dick) and we felt a ban is appropriate. As this is her first ban, a 3 day chat ban will be placed
  • We’re concerned not just with Jasper’s involvement in inflaming the situation, but failure to act to enforce the rules. A misuse of tools was unanimously not recognized, but a failure/reluctance to act alongside inflaming the situation was unanimously recognized and is unacceptable; this will be something that needs to be considered on any reoccurance -Admins are supposed to set an example for how this wiki behaves and the behavior demonstrated in this incident was not that of a good example. The three of us strongly believe it would be best for Jasper he takes time off to reflect upon his behaviour and reconsider the degree of his tact. Further insulting or baiting of any user will result in a ban.
  • For Alex You did nothing in particular to deserve the treatment you received that day, but two wrongs do not make a right, you divulged personal information regarding Nat and if it happens again it will result in a ban.

If you have any questions regarding the matter, please feel free to contact me, either on my talk page, or if you desire, in confidence via pm. Agent c (talk) 00:25, December 22, 2014 (UTC)
