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.

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)

WaitttEdit

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)

Re:BotEdit

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)

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 ~~~~!

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.

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"?

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.

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)

VoteEdit

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)

Unfortunately, I don't believe AWB can carry out that task, since each parameter is different (e.g. {{linkable|1}}, {{linkable|2}}, {{linkable|3}}...). What I can do is make the task easier. AWB can add in ! # as well as a blank parameter (i.e. {{linkable|}}) so all one needs to do is go through and fill in the numbers. That's the best way as far as I know it... Sorry!

Bobs MartEdit

That reference is very vague and there's no link to any page whatsoever to Wasteland, so it certainly isn't obvious. Someone needs to check it, otherwise it doesn't stand. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 19:44, January 2, 2015 (UTC)

I don't know. The verify template covers it good enough I'd say. People will know the meaning. And I've never seen a section needed template inside a behind the scenes note(s). Jspoel Speech Jspoel 19:55, January 2, 2015 (UTC)

"Section needed" is for sections that are required according to FW:LAY. Since BtS is not required, "section needed" is not appropriate. Furthermore, you claim we don't verify BtS information, which is simply asinine. Documentation for {{Verify}} clearly states the template is for "facts which need verification." This is exactly one of them. The sentence "X is a reference to Y" without any further detail or a valid source is also against the wiki's quality standards. Linking to the wrong Wasteland also doesn't help in that regard. Could you please explain specifically how this extremely vague and unsubstantiated reference is somehow valid according to existing policy? If not, expect the "verify" template to be added again. --Skire (talk) 21:13, January 2, 2015 (UTC)

These "obvious direct visual or textual correlations" are so obvious that no one has bothered to mention them, apparently. J certainly didn't know what the alleged ref. was about. I asked Leon and he didn't know. Do you know what the ref. is about specifically? If not, then the criteria of "obvious direct visual or textual correlations" are not met. Therefore, the content would require verification. We verify things that are suspected of possibly being untrue. A note that literally only has "X is a reference to Y" is dubious by nature. Also, I would appreciate if you would stop being rude to both J and myself. I am fully aware of the policy vote and it is nothing like how you are twisting it to be. The policy did not state that any reference, no matter how unsubstantiated or vague, does not need verification. --Skire (talk) 21:31, January 2, 2015 (UTC)
Skire says it pretty well. And if we add a verify template, it will have timestamp of two weeks, which it won't have with a section needed tag. I don't think this one makes it, it was added in one of the very first edits, ten years ago [2]. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 21:39, January 2, 2015 (UTC)
The issue is that the very lack of any detail whatsoever makes it dubious and subject to verification. The "clean-up" template doesn't apply because there is essentially nothing to clean up. Also, you simply have no right to remove a verify template without doing any verifying. The rules state that all references require a valid source, except for those that are obvious. How do you know the evidence for this ref. is obvious if you are unable to come up with what the ref. is even referring to? --Skire (talk) 21:42, January 2, 2015 (UTC)
P.S. As J kindly pointed out, the info was originally added by an anon a decade ago (and still no details have come forth). If there is ever anything that needs verification, it's this one. --Skire (talk) 21:45, January 2, 2015 (UTC)

Ah right. Sure it was me. Here's how it went. I moved it from Red Ryder LE BB gun to Bob's Pre-owned Car Mart today after I noticed the reference to Wasteland on the BB gun page (check the history), where it was out of place. I felt it was at least a vague reference, so I added the verify template, knowing it had 2 weeks to be confirmed. I wanted to give it a chance (as I am a fan of references), and in the meantime today I have already scoured the Wasteland wikia for the reference, but wasn't able to find it. My plan was to keep it in mind, hoping for a verification, and if not remove the references after 2 weeks. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 21:52, January 2, 2015 (UTC)

A couple of Polls or you. Sorry I wasn't really here the past couple of weeks, its been really cold and I've had to prepare the orchard and plants for the weather. Anyway:

Would you like to customize with jewelry in the next game?

  • Yeah! Add some bling!
  • No, how would it feel "post apocalyptic," then? Not to mention that "gangsta" feeling.
  • If it was small jewelry, not big gaudy stuff, then sure.
  • I want to make my own jewelry!

What player character levels are your favorite?

  • Early levels. Nothing beats that "just starting" feeling.
  • Mid levels. I finally got some good gear!
  • Late levels. I can finally beat tough enemies and live to see the end of the day!

Yay! I got on the internet this time! ... OK, but on to more important matters... I have a couple Polls for you this time:

Should it be that in the next Fallout game skill magazines and skill books would be permanent, instead of one-use-only items?

  • Hell yeah! Permanent skill books! Whoo!
  • No! I like that they're one-time-use!
  • It'd be cool if they were semi-permanent items.

What do you care about the most in a Fallout game, that really makes the game for you?

  • Weapons
  • Storyline
  • Types of enemies
  • Perks and/or traits
  • Companions

  • The soundtrack
  • Quests

Have you ever thought that a character or companion was lacking personality?

  • Yeah, quite a lot of 'em.
  • Eh, maybe some.
  • Nah, characters don't lack anything.
  • Personality? Why would I care about that! Aren't companions just to be used as pack-mules in the first place?

Should the next game be in a cold climate, or should it be in another hot one?

  • Cold! Let's experience something different, like blizzards!
  • Hot and muggy! I want to almost choke on the humidity!
  • Hot! I want dry and dusty!
  • Neither. I want perfect temperatures where I'm neither cold or hot!
  • Do I get a choice? The developers do what they want, anyways!

CyborgEdit

When I removed that edit, it was a sum of factors that made me do that.

I left the Cyborg (perk), because that's clearly the most obvious. The rest they can check on the Cybernetic organism page. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 21:30, April 1, 2015 (UTC)

Hmm, in that case, what should we refer to the FO2 world as? Since we are replacing Core Region with an in-game term (even if it's not from FO2 per se), we could just replace the FO2 instances of "Core Region" with "New California" as well. The New California page states that the region also contains the FO2 locations (like Klamath). --Skire (talk) 17:15, April 4, 2015 (UTC)

CategoriesEdit

The Broken Steel page is 100% a subcat from the Fallout 3 add-on category. Pages are allowed to be in multiple categories you know. Pick a random one, and you'll see multiple categories on a pages everywhere. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 00:33, May 6, 2015 (UTC)

Ok. My opinion is it belongs in both. Another policy rule is: "A content page should be placed in all the categories to which it logically belongs." An add-on page belongs in the -base game- add-on category as well as the add-on category. A major page such as that can go in both. It's not logical that for example the Broken Steel page doesn't have the category Fallout 3 add-ons as a link. It means you can't click on it, and won't have the option for a very convenient overview of all the add-on pages and their subcategories in one click. We have plenty more examples that pages are in the category below it, take or example damp cave that is in the Fallout 3 locations category as well as in the location specific category Oasis below it. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 21:04, May 6, 2015 (UTC)
I find this a tough one, but at the moment I favor them in both. If you remove them from the main character category, they mainly go the human and ghoul category, together with mentioned-only characters who are as well in those categories. So then you won't have a main category anymore with just the characters that really appear in the game, which would be a loss. Also similar to the previous add-on issue, you won't have a main character category link anymore from a page. It's also that I see almost all categories having the pages in the main category, except the weapons and the quests. And I have my doubts about it for the Wikia app. With the new format people will have to click categories instead of directly seeing pages. That what I see right now, though I'm open to further suggestions. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 23:19, May 6, 2015 (UTC)
You're right, it's inconsistent when we look at the Fallout: New Vegas characters compared to the other games. As I remember it, Tociman removed them from the Fallout: New Vegas main category, but I objected at the time and then he left the others as they were. Think my argument that the category holding only the characters that really have a physical role in the game would disappear, is a strong one though. Using the app you'll a whole bunch of entries without an image. Probably best to set up a general category forum for it, also about similar category issues like the quest categories which have an inconsistent structure throughout the game series.

Why in the world are you moving Fat Man without leaving a redirect? That's really not what I expect from an admin. You're leaving dozens of red links this way, and you're removing an important search term. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 19:26, May 28, 2015 (UTC)

That move is totally unnecessary and confusing for users. You're wasting a perfectly fine disambiguation page with it. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 20:53, May 28, 2015 (UTC)
You're kidding me right? Moving Fat Man to Fat Man (Disambiguation, which should be disambiguation btw) is ridiculous. It's confusing to probably anyone not working on the project. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 20:57, May 28, 2015 (UTC)
I know of the dynamite and let one of the admins figure out that mistake. No one did. If you can avoid (disambiguation) at any possibility, you should. With Fat Man you can even avoid it easily. I personally don't like the term and see it as less as possible as a search term. When people type Fat Man, they should see Fat Man as the first search. Not with the unnecessary (disambiguation) following it. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 21:06, May 28, 2015 (UTC)

Main page banner - FONV in separate section Edit

Hi Jasper! I wanted your opinion on something if that's okay (and I think a talk page is the formal way to contact an admin, but correct me if I'm wrong). On every page there's a banner at the top containing a section titled 'Fallout games'. This section has a dropdown listing each game (except NV) and a sub-dropdown for their main categories. Fallout:NV is a separate dropdown for some reason. I was wondering why this is the case. Is there a specific reason other than possibly space that this is the case? It looks weird aesthetically. Thanks! Shaka1277 (talk) 19:29, May 30, 2015 (UTC)

ReviewEdit

I did not discipline them, and I did not threaten them. I am absolutely within my right to tell someone if they are breaking policy, and that I do not appreciate being talked down to, and I ended this with asking them to please stop - not outright telling them to stop.

So, no - you are not just going to let this one go, because there is nothing to let go of in the first place. I want to make that clear, because in no way am I going to be made out as the bad guy for having to deal with unnecessarily passive-aggressive edit summaries.

Anyways, I do agree that this is a stressful time. But I explained my edits to Paladin, and I am a bit concerned as to why my edits were deemed speculation, yet my content was replaced with a generic "...appears to..." - something that is outright speculation, instead of the ambiguity that I wrote in order to not add speculation. 69.247.6.120 23:57, June 4, 2015 (UTC)

Obvious is not what I am going for, as a clarification over my intent. What I am going for, is the sprucing up of these articles with flavour material, just as we have done for almost every article on the wiki throughout the years.
Using the rationale currently being presented to me, I can just about blank large sections of every article on this wiki - I know that, because I have helped flesh out hundreds upon hundreds of our articles over the years; especially when New Vegas was released. Because at this point, I am not being told that just speculation is not allowed, which I am not anyways since I am not stating any subjective certainties at this point, but instead, I am being told that I have to 100% prove not only the base information that I am adding, but the very thoughts going on inside of the creatures' NPCs' heads, which is an impossibility.
Why I object to this, is because I am not saying my opinions are fact, or even using my opinions to add information into the articles. I am observing exactly what is happening in the trailer, and I am writing that observational information onto the articles. So if I see an eyebot not shooting anyone, and not spewing propaganda? That is legitimate information - not speculation. If I see ghouls leaping at the PC, then that is them using their environment as a factor, regardless of whether or not the ghouls realize this for themselves. Even mindless ants can take advantage of their environment, even when cut off from their queen. Etc. etc. etc.
There are also a few things I want to go over with, and please feel free to share this with Paladin, as if I sent him a message, as well, it would be identical to this one:

A) There is a ton of my information being removed, that is simply not speculation. A perfect example, is when my power armour information was removed, that stated general information about power armour, how it was military, and ever since the Great War, have been accessed by the general wastelander populace. None of that is speculation - those are well established facts, present since the very first game was released.

B) I have been shown, in the instance of deathclaws at the very least, that the offending administrator does not even know what they are talking about. Allow for me to explain:

  • They do not understand evolution. Evolution has many forms, whether natural, unnatural, or even through spontaneous mutation. Regardless of whether this deathclaw in Fallout 4 is a different strain created at the same time as the original deathclaw, still does not denounce the fact that there is some form of evolution or adaptation present.
  • They do not understand Fallout lore. It was actually told to me, that the Enclave did not create deathclaws, which, to the contrary, is not at all the truth due to established lore in Fallout 2 that has not been contradicted at all in the later titles. I find it insulting, that someone with an incomplete account of Fallout lore, and a lack of research capabilities, is telling me that everything I write is "Wrong" or "Speculative."

C) Even if I am writing speculation, I also find it insulting that the offending administrator is blatantly blanking all content. I am not sure if it is because of laziness, or what, and I am not going to start throwing around insinuations. But it is frustrating, when he throws out the baby with the bath all because of an incapability or lack of interest in re-writes/information cuts to help keep the article from being bare-bones.

Anyways, I will admit that I am annoyed - I was specifically asked to help flesh out these articles, using observational information from the trailer, and that is what I have done. Everything I have stated, to my current awareness, is exactly that - observational.

What I was met with, was an administrator that decided to abuse the editing tools to insult me, not even using a correct analysis in their insult against me, a bunch of reversions with absolutely no explanation behind them, a lack of message sent to me explaining the reverts and telling me what I was doing wrong, if I was indeed doing something wrong, and an extremely insulting behaviour involving blanking all of my work, and leaving the articles almost entirely blank of information.

I am going to take a break for now - my help has also been requested over at The Vault, and I think it would be best for now to only focus on one place during this initial hype. But I will still see about coming back here when I can start logging back in again. Hopefully when the gameplay trailers are released, there can be some serious information that can finally be added. 69.247.6.120 21:30, June 5, 2015 (UTC)

Abraxo cleanerEdit

The Abraxo cleaner (Fallout 4) page was going to be created anyway, now we know it will be in the game. Maybe as its own page, maybe as a redirect. Right now I'm leaning towards splitting everything because of the new engine and appearance. Also, if we add the Fo4 pages to the combined Fo3/FNV page, I think the page will get too large and lose the overview. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 17:02, June 6, 2015 (UTC)

ApprenticeEdit

If you think a date is going to be an issue, please let me know, and earlier access can be given. Well be doing these roughly every month. Agent c (talk) 21:02, June 7, 2015 (UTC)

Fallout Shelter clothing and armor Edit

Hello. I think that your formal wear disambiguation page must be broken by an redirect.Lincoln Speak! June 17, 2015 (UTC)

PS: I'm doing the Fallout Shelter's armor infobox right now... Lincoln Speak! 19:47, June 17, 2015 (UTC)
Now every single page has it's right infobox. Do you want a hand to build the other pages in at least a basic way?Lincoln Speak! 20:03, June 17, 2015 (UTC)
Yeah I use androit too in my smartphone and I can do that much bu at least I'm making the base for those pages cause there is going to be a lot of editors after Fallout shelter's release for Android. I'm going to take a break for now and continue in 2 hours, see you later. Lincoln Speak! 20:12, June 17, 2015 (UTC)

Thanks For The AutoGreeting! Edit

No seriously, Thank you for that, I don't think people who make the auto greeting for websites or who go to the trouble of actually greeting new members individually get much credit for doing so, but it makes me feel welcome. So Thank you for being THAT GUY now if you'll excuse me I need to go barter with a jerky vendor.

Fallout Shelter characters Edit

I'll need that character's page model to start to make my modifications to the original respective pages. Lincoln Speak! 20:33, June 21, 2015 (UTC)

My quest Edit

Hey JASP

I would like to know if you can help me building my mission that is called: Blow That Shit Up. As you are in the fallout aprendice project you may know how to do this and I would aprecciate if you make an basic script for me. It can be where you like (DC or Boston with preference).

I'm looking foward to see any of your ideas for it.

See you later

PS: I'm a huge fan of any brotherhood's divisions.

There's about a 99% chance he is high up ranks on some kind of ship in the Boston harbor. But whatever. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 16:49, June 22, 2015 (UTC)

Didn't we have a forum half a year ago that behind the scenes notes that are near certainty are allowed? This is a same situation. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 16:58, June 22, 2015 (UTC)

Hello, JASPER42. You have new messages at Shining-Armor's talk page.
You can remove this notice at any time by removing the {{Talkback}} or {{Tb}} template.

Really, how long this time? Edit

Wow, you guys act like little kids messaging each other. This didn't stop me last time, buddy. Joehova (talk) 22:28, July 9, 2015 (UTC)

CategoriesEdit

Both are well used, I believe. But we should make both options available for users. Now you're removing all individual pages from that category. And I think most people voted on that thread without realizing all the consequences coming from it for the various categories. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 17:00, July 11, 2015 (UTC)

TalksEdit

Hi Jasper, hopefully you will be available around 9pm our time to try this talky thing.

The goal is this will be part of an audio supplement to the news blog. In the podcast, I'll cover the headlines (not a lot of detail) in Fallout and the wiki, pushing people to the News Blog for more detail. That gets followed by the discussion bit.

If you think Newsnight, or Sunday Morning Politics show for the feel I'm going for. Serious topic, but relaxed atmosphere. Agent c (talk) 23:16, July 14, 2015 (UTC)

yo have I been kicked from the chat? I can't seem to get on

Sorry for your inconvenience. I'm a chinese student and I'm pretty sure I've made a mistake leaving a message there. PS. Feeling welcomed.

Thanks! You are so generous! I was in my over-exhilaration on making connection between Fallout 4 background set and this book. It seemed that Looking Backward(1888) played an important role both in the 1890's U.S. and in Utopian Sci-fi novels. On Wikipedia page(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Looking_Backward), you can also find that critics said the book was just some sort of "another version" of its precursor The Co-operative Commonwealth (1884)--- the Commonwealth, a location referred to in Fallout 3. These two things under the same name are irony and sarcastic enough---slavery and socialism. Though personally I do agree they are somewhat the same... Deeply sorry for my misbehaving and glad to help.

Best Wishes

Message to Happylice Edit

Hohoho... Man I've found your message to Happylice in the Portuguese wiki and... what can I say... Spooky, really spooky message hahahahahahah but was a nice try. Lincoln Speak! 19:23, July 17, 2015 (UTC)

Deletion TagsEdit

As policy states, as an editor I am fully within my rights to revert any changes that I disagree with, to return the status quo until a proper discussion can be had on any respective talk-pages.

Since Shining did not provide a supporting argument, and the deletion tags are suggesting the removal of valid content, I see absolutely nothing that would remove my right to revert in-order to provide the status quo. I am sorry if you do not agree with this, but I feel much more strongly about the deletion tags being thrown around haphazardly.

If those deletion tags want to be re-instated, then a discussion ought to be had - anything else will be edit-warring. User:Sarkhan the Sojourner 18:58, July 18, 2015 (UTC)

"If you cannot reach a consensus, ask another user to mediate. In general, if someone reverts an edit you made, you should not re-add it without reaching a consensus on the article's talk page."

The question is not whether or not I have the right to revert, because that is a moot point since I inherently have the right to revert changes I do not agree with. The real question, is why policy is being broken by edit-warring with me, instead of following the policies by having a discussion/getting a mediator involved. User:Sarkhan the Sojourner 19:05, July 18, 2015 (UTC)

Ugh - editors that hide between their own convenient perceptions of the rules are about as pathetic as they can get. You know perfectly well that "Mediator" does not mean that an admin can call themselves that, and without hearing an argument from both sides, uses that position to strong-hand their view in and allowing edit-warring.

Whatever - I am not in the mood for dealing with bureaucratic bullshit from wannabe politicians. I am also not in the mood for dealing with editors that hide behind admins and ignore requests into their editing behaviour: because, guess what? Even after asking for an explanation, they are still just editing away without ever bothering to give one.

Guess that is my cue to head off for the day. User:Sarkhan the Sojourner 19:17, July 18, 2015 (UTC)
