Hm, I can't exactly find anything in the history of Far Harbor (add-on) page. Probably was just a typo, which caused the page to be created. 21:44, May 26, 2016 (UTC)
I just created this page after he was mentioned in the Eden Meadows Cinemas terminal entries. Off course I know he actually existed and thus i have kept it short and only with info obtained from ingame. Is this good? I want to do the same with the 'characters' mentioned in the Beaver Creek Lanes terminal entries, but as Peace'n Hugs has mentioned in his edit, those are also existing people. Can i do the same with those? Or do you think the articles need tweaking (in the state as i did with Jules Verne), or do you rather not want articles on them?

- Ok thanks! I wasn't planning on creating the bowling teams, and it wasn't me who added the links. Anyhow, i'll do that than :) Kennyannydenny (talk) 14:44, May 27, 2016 (UTC)
- After doing some research on Google i couldn't find anything about professional bowlers with names matching these. So i've added the articles as normal, without any external link (except for Jules Verne off course :P). Kennyannydenny (talk) 15:21, May 27, 2016 (UTC)
Please rename Edit
I've removed an anon's vote at the user request. However, when the anon asked if there is a policy, I can't exactly find the line that states unregistered users cannot vote. The only closest thing I found is here, stating "In addition, administrators reserve the right to require voters' rationales for voting on certain polls, if and only if they feel a necessity." Is there a more specific line involving this case? 17:30, June 3, 2016 (UTC)
Flare gun (Fallout 4) Edit
Re: Flare gun (Fallout 4) Hi, I recently made an edit correcting the baseid of an item and you immediately reversed it. I believe this is incorrect due to an error message I got in the Fallout 4 console using the baseid listed on the wiki. I discussed this on the talk page before editing and went ahead and edited after I did not get a reply. Please see here: http://fallout.wikia.com/wiki/Talk:Flare_gun_(Fallout_4)#Correct_baseid Thanks, Koskla (talk) 17:59, June 8, 2016 (UTC)
Using the infobox locationEdit
You recently added a couple buildings in Diamond City and I added those buildings to the Diamond City page, in the Buildings section. There's around 30 buildings in this location, are we supposed to mention them all in the infobox or only the most important ones (i.e. the ones that are quest related)? If we put all the buildings in the infobox I think we might as well remove the Buildings section from the article since it would only be a repetition. --YOD 18:37, June 10, 2016 (UTC)
- Thanks for the answer. I appreciate the guidance. --YOD 22:22, June 10, 2016 (UTC)
Clarification Please Edit
Could you please point me in the direction of what constitutes Notable Loot just for future clarification, Thanks.
Someone wants a block Edit
Marine armor helmetEdit
I was wondering why you removed the three full helmets from Fallout 4 armor and clothing. The tactical helmet is completely unique compared to the standard marine armor (texture, stats, etc). Also, there is no "Marine armor helmet" in game, only the "Assault marine armor helmet," which can not be modified into a inquisitor or zealot version and, as far as I know, only one of exists in the game. I understand if you don't think the Recon Marine helmet should be included, but I think it should, as both the standard Combat armor helmet and the unique Commando helmet are included in the Hats list on the same page.

Sorry to bother you with this but a strange user spammed the forum with advertisement for their own business of counterfeit documents, passports and driving licenses. I'm not too familiar with the forum policies but I doubt advertising this kind of content is legitimate on Wikia. --188.8.131.52 14:37, June 20, 2016 (UTC)
- You can ignore the last message. It has already been dealt with. --184.108.40.206 15:08, June 20, 2016 (UTC)
Fallout 4 craftable itemsEdit
Thanks for the help on the materials, I tend to go a bit too fast over some edits when I have to do 20 that are very similar. I am now trying to update the infoboxes for all the items that can be used to craft ammo, consumables... in Fallout 4.
I have encountered a singularity and I'm not sure how to deal with it: the Berserk syringe uses the Template:Infobox ammo gamebryo and at the same time it can be used to craft Fury but the template does not allow a field such as |component of=. The same problem occurs with Flamer fuel (Fallout 4) that can be used Jet Fuel. Should we update the infobox template just for this unique case?
--YOD 03:56, June 22, 2016 (UTC)
That's good, because I've been skulking around here anyways. ;D Thanks for the wishes, though - hope you have been doing alright lately. 寧靜 18:55, June 22, 2016 (UTC)
Fallout 4 Feral Ghoul Organization Edit
Hey, Jspoelstra, I have a question. There has been some back-and-forth about how we are suppose to organize pages. The notable ghouls section of the FO4 Feral Ghoul page was listed by last name alphabetical order, are we doing that or is it alphabetical order by the in-game names that we encounter? Either way, at first glance the section looks disorganized right now. --Musiekutsueki (talk) 22:13, June 26, 2016 (UTC)
So, Jspo, you're telling me that on that page we do not need to sort them by family? Just first name alphabetical EXCEPT for DLC feral ghouls to whom I would place in alphabetical order at the end of the page. I just want to be sure about what we are suppose to do because people are flipping and flopping on this page :P. --Musiekutsueki (talk) 04:04, June 29, 2016 (UTC)
Some navbox templates like Template:Navbox Far Harbor are placed in 2 categories: Category:Navbox templates and Category:Far Harbor. I'm planning to clean up the already existing category tags of all those navboxes since they do not sort well on the category page. Should I align all those pages on the model of Template:Navbox Far Harbor or should I keep only one category on the model Template:Navbox locations FO4?
In other words, here's the two kind of edits I can do:
- Option 1: one category.
- Example: Goodneighbor navbox.
- Benefit: Navboxes will not be listed in the general categories and it will not confuse inexperienced users.
- Option 2: two categories.
If you chose the first option, there's a couple navboxes for which I wouldn't know what extra category to pick up so I'll keep track of the advancement on a list in my subpages.
This is probably trivial but the changes will affect ~270 pages and I'd like to be sure before making the edits. --YOD 17:44, June 27, 2016 (UTC)
User removing talkpageEdit
Please could you look at the user Valetski. They have removed ban information and other items from their talkpage after being warned not to do so previously.

Fallout 4 craftingEdit
Hey it's me again. I have done a lot of edits on consumables and craftable items the past week. I mostly added links inside infoboxes to show which items can be crafted from another. I encountered something that could be an issue: when using the component of field of the infobox we do not specify the crafting station that is used to craft each item. It was not a problem until Contraptions Workshop came along and allowed to craft items from the base game by using only items from the base game and a crafting table from the add-on. Since it can be confusing for people who do not own the add-on, I came up with 3 proposals.
If you prefer I'd develop those kind of suggestions on the forum or on a blog post then just tell me.
I also started a Navbox draft for the crafting-related articles in Fallout 4. I could use some input about what I'm missing. I'm have not defined yet which pages I could put the navbox on.
- If we want to look ahead and anticipate future needs we could use icons for the following crafting tables: Workshop (base game), Robot workbench (Automatron), and all the Contraptions Workshop crafting tables. The most needed ones are the Explosives mill and the Food processor.
- I created Template:Navbox crafting FO4 and added it to the crafting components and crafting tables.
- I also moved the crafting components category under junk items and created a dedicated image subcategory. I think it is an improvement and if you think it is not then all of it can easily be reverted manually and the most tedious parts can also easily be reverted with a bot and basic string replacement. Maybe I'm doubting myself for nothing. --YOD (ಠ_ಠ) 04:41, July 6, 2016 (UTC)
- As far as I know. Not possible to checkuser an anon with different IPs, but I do know that 166.137 is a repeat offender who jumps from IP to another IP. --Cassie ~可愛いの猫 08:16, July 7, 2016 (UTC)
All Roads Book Cover Edit
From my personal collection. I hope U like it.
Regards, KPThug 22:45, July 7, 2016 (UTC)
We have an issue. The collapsible collapsed argument that we use when declaring tables is not working anymore. Most of, if not all, the navboxes are affected along with companion's ranges of interests and other pages. --YOD ╚(•⌂•)╝ 18:10, July 9, 2016 (UTC)
Hi, I saw you removed some of my Edits on Red Rocket Truckshop. I just want to know what I did wrong in regards to the edit and if so where I can add tips for Survival Mode.
Just wondering why you reverted the changes on the PipBoy 300 IV page yesterday as Vault 88 is now confirmed as being in the Vault-Tec Workshop DLC
Look at the image

Would it not have made more sense to remove the LAER in the notable loot if you thought it was redundant rather than revert my work and restore the "Notes" section to a wall-of-text? As it stands one LAER isn't noteworthy, an LAER, 5 ammo boxes, a duffle bag, a greasy toolbox, an electrical box and a freakin' wrench are noteworthy being all in the same spot. The former reads as something unimportant, the latter sounds as if it's worth investigating; especially if you already have an LAER. Point is, it's not the only thing up there. If what I did wasn't up to wikia standards for formatting, why couldn't it be fixed, most of these older pages are a flipping mess. Hell, let me know and I'd have fixed it. 220.127.116.11 14:20, July 11, 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for even acknowledging my question, too busy deleting people's work and putting up pictures. If that's how you'd like to 'resolve' this fine, that just creates more work as I won't be helping fix spelling and grammar errors. Enjoy! 18.104.22.168 05:56, July 12, 2016 (UTC)
Broken Banner Edit
Hey Js, I am notifying you and the rest of the B'crats, the links banner at the top of the page seems to have broken. Links to the individual games, and their content articles have vanished, all our links to policies projects, etc. have disappeared as well. I'm not sure if their is anything you can do on your end, but we should probably get this fixed soon. ---bleep196- (talk) 14:10, July 12, 2016 (UTC)
- Nvm Js, the issue seems to have resolved itself. ---bleep196- (talk) 15:12, July 12, 2016 (UTC)
Fallout Shelter images Edit
Hey why are you reverting my edits? I was making the numbers coincide with the Fallout 4 magazine page and you are just undoing the effort I took to do that.... Ultimasta (talk) 15:49, July 15, 2016 (UTC)
What on earth has happened to the infoboxes? They seem to have all gone to that horrid default blue instead of the Vault thing they had going. Has Wikia put that new infobox on here or something?example image
14:50, July 20, 2016 (UTC)
- Just a note, i've also been having the same thing happen on and off for the last few days now - Dweller111 17:29, July 20, 2016 (UTC)
- Fair enough. I know recently we had Wikia asking us about some new infoboxes (W:C:Callofduty:Forum:Greetings from Vanguard: Portable Infoboxes). It's possible that's related. 18:01, July 20, 2016 (UTC)
Vault-Tec Workshop and upcoming contentEdit
Hey. I noticed LordKmTube has been adding a bit of content on VTW related pages but the add-on is still in beta. I'm not certain as to what the policy we have concerning this and non-disclosure agreements. --YOD (◣_◢) 13:47, July 23, 2016 (UTC)
- Could you take a look at this note (From Brenda to Lee) and that one (Pickman's a psycho!) next time you open the Creation Engine? Both notes use the same transcript and have different IDs but I can't find the location of the second one. The What links here tool is useless when we have 600 pages that use the FO4 holodisks and notes navbox. --YOD (◣_◢) 20:53, July 25, 2016 (UTC)
Strange User Edit
Can you tell me anything about this user? It comes into chat occasionally, only displaying the time in UTC + 3. It appears as though whenever the word "time" is spoken, it displays the Cyrillic transliteration of time: "Time = Время". Sometimes it says "Квпрвл", which upon entering into a translation software, lists gibberish (Kvprvl). Lastly, the "person's" username translates to "Brenna Spirit". It sounds like a name to me, but I could be wrong. Regardless, the person is very peculiar. I was wondering if perhaps a checkuser run could find anything out, or if there are other bureaucratic tools that could find something out about them. Thanks.

Usage of the wiki policiesEdit
Would you have any objections to me using the Nukapedia policies and guidelines as a template for creating policies and guidelines at the Shawshank Redemption Wiki? It's currently not well maintained so I'm trying to tidy it up and make it more welcoming and presentable to editors. Thanks. - Dweller111 08:58, July 27, 2016 (UTC)
- Awesome, the guidelines are well organised here so it'll be of great help. Will do, thanks for the advice! - Dweller111 19:00, July 27, 2016 (UTC)

Transcripts and Terminal EntriesEdit
I'm sort of new here and was wondering how to get nice copies of terminal entries and the transcript of radio broadcasts. Because, well, just hearing it and writing it down manually can lead to some mistakes and also some terminal entries are quite long to rewrite. So I wanted to know how you or others do it.Thanks, 18:31, July 30, 2016 (UTC)
- Now that's a lot of things for me to learn. Thanks for sharing the info. 20:06, July 30, 2016 (UTC)
My first weekEdit
As this is my first week here (I think it's more like 5~6 days, but...), I wanted to know how well I'm doing.
I'm trying to help as I can, and I hope I'm not just messing things up.
So I wanted to hear from someone more experienced, how I'm going, what I'm doing right, what I'm doing wrong, what I could improve and how.
I'm quite new to all of this, but I'm doing my best to learn the things around here.
Thanks for all the help so far!18:31, July 30, 2016 (UTC)
Falloutwiki database dump consistency Edit
Hi there, It's me again about this mediawiki database dump (wich located here http://fallout.wikia.com/wiki/Special:Statistics)
I just found out it doesn't not contain some articles.
For example, it contains this one: http://fallout.wikia.com/wiki/The_House_Always_Wins_I but doesn't contain all II to VIII: http://fallout.wikia.com/wiki/The_House_Always_Wins_II http://fallout.wikia.com/wiki/The_House_Always_Wins_III ... http://fallout.wikia.com/wiki/The_House_Always_Wins_VIII
Could you please check, if this dump was generated without any errors?...
Could you be able to get the REF-ID that the USS Democracy has, I recently created the page. Here it is: http://fallout.wikia.com/wiki/USS_Democracy
Hey Jspoelstra! I just wanted to give you a heads up that we will be temporarily removing the Fallout app promo banner in the right rail on the main page. We're removing it because of a minor technical issue and are hoping to have them restored in a week or so. Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have about this!

Fast Travel Target deletion Edit
Hi, first off thank you for your edits, you have been helping me learn how this Wiki does things. I do have one concern. I had uploaded an image: that was intended to illustrate the article I was going to write for Fast travel target.
Before I could get to the article itself, the image was deleted by you without comment. The Upload image page advises me to talk to the administrator who deleted the image before re-uploading it, so that's what I'm doing. May I reupload the image, or was there something wrong with it that I need to address, first?
