Mobile Main Page Featured Content Edit

Hey, I saw in WikiFactory that you've changed the mobile main page in a way that the Featured Content isn't now in the actual Featured Content slot, but as one of the Curated Content sections. Was that intended or is it just a byproduct of a bug that we should squash? Warkot (talk) 23:40, April 13, 2016 (UTC)

Fixed! :) If anything like that happens again, please let us know—we'll investigate. Warkot (talk) 01:16, April 14, 2016 (UTC)

VANDALISMEdit

Somebody added pornographic images to the home page! Remove them immediately! Chris6d (talk) 17:36, January 22, 2016 (UTC)

Archives Edit

Template:Archives, 38 and 39 look fine to me. My guess would be that this page is too expensive. Mazn (talk) 19:21, January 18, 2016 (UTC)

If my guess is true the only solution is to rewrite Template:Archives to be "cheaper". I can do that if you unprotect it. Mazn (talk) 19:31, January 18, 2016 (UTC)
It works now. I had to cheat a little though. My script only checks whether Archive_10, Archive_20, Archive_30, etc. exist and simply assumes the ones in between exist as well. It's a simplification, but hopefully no one will ever notice. What's noticeable though is the increased speed of this page.
Also: The new Template:Archives should work until Archive_100
You can protect Template:Archives again. You should also protect the new Module:Archives while you're at it. Mazn (talk) 03:46, January 19, 2016 (UTC)

Checkuser Edit

Hey Js, could you check and see if you can match this user: Thetuxx to someone similar. Ta~ ----Cassie ~可愛いの猫。 04:12, January 19, 2016 (UTC)

Infobox images Edit

Hm. Looks like Wikia purposefully disabled the image size parameter. Maybe they were just lazy. I need to come up with a fix that can be copypasted into all infobox templates, right? Let's see... Can you unprotect Template:Infobox weapon, please? Mazn (talk) 23:59, January 19, 2016 (UTC)

It should work now. You can protect Template:Infobox weapon again. And I've added another Module:Image|Lua module. You might want to protect that as well. Mazn (talk) 14:37, January 20, 2016 (UTC)
Correction: I couldn't figure out how to do it with Lua. Lua - or at least the version Wikia uses - doesn't have a way to determine an image file's size. I used traditional parser functions now. It's ugly, but it does seem to work. Delete Module:Image|Lua module, please. Mazn (talk) 15:40, January 20, 2016 (UTC)
Alfwyn's solution - simply adding a "frameless" attribute - to the link has two downsides:
  • It relies on the image having the appropriate size. If the image is too small it will be scaled up. And:
  • It ignores the image size parameter. If a user specifies that parameter it is silently dropped.
If neither of these points is a problem, then Alfwyn's solution is better than mine. Mazn (talk) 16:03, January 20, 2016 (UTC)
As far as I can see it sets a maximum size, but leaves smaller images alone (see Anna's gold locket). It does ignore the image size paramater though. It along with others got dropped by the conversion (the portabe infobox image tag supports neither, what I use to limit the image and add an icon is a hack). We haven't used the image size parameter on too many pages. It is probably a bit a style question wether we want to simplify stuff a bit on the way or be strictly backward compatible, so not sure. --Alfwyn (talk) 16:20, January 20, 2016 (UTC)
Wait! So "frameless" prevents the image from being scaled up? If that's the case, I'd suggest we do drop the image size parameter entirely and use your solution. Mazn (talk) 16:28, January 20, 2016 (UTC)
Yup. It clearly says so here: "showing an enlargement of the stored image is not possible." In that case Alfwyn's solution is clearly superior to mine. Yes, my solution allows for use of the image size but it does so by using #imgw which is an expensive parser function. Avoiding expensive functions is a good practice. It puts less strain on Wikia's servers and thus speeds up page rendering.
Shall I edit Template:Infobox weapon one last time and replace my solution with frameless? Mazn (talk) 16:47, January 20, 2016 (UTC)

Looks like {{{image size|frameless{{!}}242x300px}}} can combine the frameless approach with the image size parameter. Going through possibilities, one of the major problems here for me is figuring out exactly what the conversion changed and what the actual usage on the pages is. --Alfwyn (talk) 16:57, January 20, 2016 (UTC)

Nice. That doesn't scale down image size if it's too large though. How about:
{{#if: {{{image size|}}}
| {{#ifexpr: {{{image size}}} > 242
  | frameless{{!}}242x300px
  | {{{image size}}}
  }}
| frameless{{!}}242x300px
}}

Common.js Edit

There is currently a } missing at Common.js. Paladin117 fixed it on the way, but I think he didn't submit the change. --Alfwyn (talk) 12:33, January 20, 2016 (UTC)

Troublesome anonEdit

No admin is available on the chat. Could you ban Special:Contributions/192.119.219.146? He repeatedly deleted walls of content on the Assaultron page. Changes have been reverted to normal. --YoDsanklai (talk, blogs) 16:27, January 20, 2016 (UTC)

Image categoriesEdit

Wouldn't it be easier to get a bot add the copyright mention on every single image that belongs in one of the subcategories of Category:Fallout 4 images? I guess all those images are concerned. Else I'll just go back over my last edits. --YoDsanklai (talk, blogs) 12:39, January 22, 2016 (UTC)

I was never hereEdit

Mr. Editing god... I just wanted to let you know that there's a weird (something?) going on with the in-line quotes for some of the Fallout 4 Companions. For example, Cait. Anyways ... just wanted to let you know. Ill go off back to my less-fun universe now ;) TimeoinSay G'DayView my work 12:49, January 22, 2016 (UTC)

Chkuser Edit

Hey J, hows things?

Can I bother you for a checkuser on user:Donut22 and user:SwissCheese1. I know those two are the same, but I suspect a third. Thanks. Agent c (talk) 20:49, January 22, 2016 (UTC)

SuggestionEdit

Although I may have just not noticed it if something like this exists, I feel there should be a key (even just a sentence) on the Fallout 4 quests page describing what the asterisks and slashes mean. While people will likely be able to assume they're for rewards dictated by speech checks, having something that actually says this may be a good idea.

New teal rounded vase Edit

New teal vase is missing the rounded image. I guess you already have it lying around somewhere, so I don't want to stick a image needed onto it. --Alfwyn (talk) 18:06, January 24, 2016 (UTC)

HeyEdit

Hi Jspoelstra, can you please consult T234LovelyCassie? Shes banned me from chat for no reason and has hatched a conspiracy that I added "inappropiate spam" I never did such a thing. If this power abuse continues, I'll get the whole Fallout Wiki Admin staff demoted by the Wikia team. Cheers, CGT dick (talk) 10:42, January 25, 2016 (UTC)

Change to Dangerous Minds infobox Edit

Regarding this change, there was a fairly long discussion about the merge, during which Alfwyn discovered the pip-boy icon for the "Shattered" quest was actually just a different frame in the animation from the one for the "Dangerous Minds" quest.

As far as we could tell, the "Shattered" quest could never appear in the quest log, since it had no log entries in the quest data.

I was wondering if it would make more sense to use a screenshot from the quest in the footer image. I'm sure I've seen this done elsewhere, but can't seem to find any examples at the moment.

Aya42 (talk) 18:26, January 25, 2016 (UTC)

If you have a good ingame image, go ahead and place it in the footer. Icon can go to the gallery then. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 18:46, January 25, 2016 (UTC)
I've reused one of the existing gallery images. I'm in the process of updating all the quest infoboxes, so I can do the same for the other quests which have existing screenshots. Aya42 (talk) 19:11, January 25, 2016 (UTC)

Check userEdit

Hey, would it be possible to run a check user on: http://fallout.wikia.com/wiki/Special:Contributions/Nuclear_Program http://fallout.wikia.com/wiki/Special:Contributions/Nationalized http://fallout.wikia.com/wiki/Special:Contributions/Redboyruler and http://fallout.wikia.com/wiki/User_talk:NashLikesMash ? Thanks in advance. - Greets Peace'n Hugs (talk) (blog) 22:19, January 25, 2016 (UTC)

Alright, thanks. Right now, the in-chat ban feature isn't working and we had quite a few trolls over with the exact same spam methods, so I wanted to make sure it wasn't the same one each time. Another matter I just discovered is that the "discussion moderators" Wikia has been appointing have powers on this website as well (unlike what they said on the forum). They have chat mod powers and they can remove blog comments apparently. ( http://fallout.wikia.com/wiki/Special:ListGroupRights ).- Greets Peace'n Hugs (talk) (blog) 22:47, January 25, 2016 (UTC)

Need a second opinion Edit

Sorry to disturb, but could you take a quick look at the last few edits on this page?

I thought Paladin117's reverting of RShepard227's changes was a tad harsh, given that some of it (e.g. the part about Curie being able to contract the disease for the player) seemed okay to me. The strategy parts (mostly just about which weapons to use) seemed inappropriate, but the parts about when the mole rats attack seemed sufficiently objective to be moved into the "Detailed Walkthrough" section.

I don't want to get involved in an edit war, so perhaps you could offer your opinion as to which of the last few edits were appropriate. Aya42 (talk) 18:12, January 26, 2016 (UTC)

"Notable Content" template suggestion Edit

Hi! Just a suggestion from a local noob: I was wondering how hard it would be to make the "More..." link on the notable content template more visible and in a more prominent/logical place? I often fail to notice that there's "more" and don't even realize it until I hit edit and then the Bug / Note / etc that I was going to place is actually already there and just wasn't appearing on the page. I think if the [More...] link appeared at the *bottom* of the list (where the next entry would have been if it wasn't hidden) then it would be easier to find at the time the user is most likely to be looking for it? Or at least if it was somehow more prominent -- as it is it looks like part of the first entry. Cattlesquat (talk) 14:31, January 29, 2016 (UTC)

File:Fo4 PaintingPortraits08 d.jpg Edit

Can you restore File:Fo4 PaintingPortraits08 d.jpg again? I linked it on a talkpage. Sneaky, I know - do you have a template here to make it appear used? Well, I can always include it on some user subpage otherwise. --Alfwyn (talk) 22:48, January 29, 2016 (UTC)

Sole Survivor gender and sex issue Edit

Excuse me,

I'd like to request that my original edit of the Sole Survivor page be restored. Looking at the dictionary definitions of the terms "gender" and "sex" (as generously provided by Google), a clear difference is made in that gender refers to societal and personality aspects of a person, whereas sex refers to the physical state of a person's reproductive organs.
I acknowledge that these aspects are tied together in Fallout 4, in that you can't change one without changing the other, but that is only due to the fact that cisgender male and female characters are the only options provided to the player. Regardless of this, characters whose gender and sex traditionally do not match are still included in the game.
One such character is KL-E-0, who previously described herself (to my knowldege, the line has been removed due to controversy over all responses insinuating intolerance, which caused controversy) as "designated Assaultron at creation" but after achieving sentience refers to herself as a woman. I believe the existence of non-binary individuals in the game constitutes the acknowledgement of gender and sex as separate aspects of a person.
Additionally, in the character creator, if the player edits their spouse's appearance in any way and then does not choose to play as them, their spouse will retain those changes, and indeed the changes will be applied to Shaun.
Therefore, I believe that my edit to the Sole Survivor page is accurate and valid in its entirety, and request that it be restored.

Thank you,
DominateEye (talk) 23:53, January 30, 2016 (UTC)

I've been waiting for a response on this for a few days now. Whenever you have the time, could you please get back to me on this? Thanks in advance.
DominateEye (talk) 23:44, February 2, 2016 (UTC)

Ah, right, I missed that change somehow, must have been semi-spacing out again. Yeah, I think that works as a middle ground. Since there's no explicit gender selection option, we really have no idea what gender the SS identifies as, regardless of the pronoun use in-game as there's always the possibility that people are unintentionally misgendering them. We definitely do have control over their sex, though, so that works for me. Cheers!

Terminal entriesEdit

Hi Jspoelstra, a quick question. I just created Old State House terminal entries since it was linked at the Old State House building only to find out that Goodneighbor terminal entries exists. Do we want this per town or per sublocation? If the first, then my article needs deleting. Otherwise the second needs splitting. Kennyannydenny (talk) 16:02, February 2, 2016 (UTC)

Checkuser Edit

Hey Js, could you check both of this user: Alice In Disneyland Syndrome and SooSinator. One of them is a sock behind the account I mentioned above, ta~ ----Cassie ~可愛いの猫。 10:00, February 5, 2016 (UTC)

Could you also run a check and see if you can also do an IP range block on this user: RuvryCasurrTranny34 ----Cassie ~可愛いの猫。 10:11, February 5, 2016 (UTC)

Anyways Js, I noticed you're hanging around recent changes, have you check the users above this post? RuvryCasurr is starfire. ----Cassie ~可愛いの猫。 16:34, February 5, 2016 (UTC)

I saw you did an IP block ranges, just want to know if its them. ----Cassie ~可愛いの猫。 01:23, February 6, 2016 (UTC)

The two hit the chat at the same time. So I suspect one of the two is a sock behind, coincidentally, ruvrycassur hits up chat, not related with them. But its a troll. I suspect its starfire after the incident of ruvrycassur posting badly photoshop porn with my and chad's face on it. Just check RuvryCasurr, and if the match is starfire. just apply a range block on them ----Cassie ~可愛いの猫。 01:34, February 6, 2016 (UTC)

Huge range blocks Edit

Just noticed you blocked 178.162.0.0/16 which seems somewhat extreme. You are aware that's over 64,000 IP addresses spanning several different ISPs in at least two different countries? Aya42 (talk) 17:26, February 5, 2016 (UTC)

That many? I followed a previous example block from a Wikia staff member. Let me take up with him then. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 17:29, February 5, 2016 (UTC)
Well, it's up to 65,536, but due to the technicalities of CIDR, not all will be valid IP addresses. There's a useful table on that WP page which explains the notation, but if, for example, all the addresses were of the form 178.162.1.x, then blocking 178.162.1.0/24 would be sufficient.
You can get a better idea by searching RIPE, so if one of the addresses was 178.162.1.1, a search tells you that all addresses from 178.162.0.0 to 178.162.7.255 are allocated to an ISP in Russia called Credolink, so you could block all of those with 178.162.0.0/21, but that's still likely to block many legitimate users.
Due to the shortage of IP4 addresses, it's increasingly uncommon for people to have static IP addresses, which makes IP-based blocking increasingly worthless. When the addresses are recycled, you're effectively blocking people you didn't intend to. Probably not a big deal if the block only lasts a few days, but probably inappropriate for infinite duration. Aya42 (talk) 15:45, February 6, 2016 (UTC)
I see you changed the duration to a month, which seems reasonable, although you might want to revisit some of the existing infinite range blocks as well. Aya42 (talk) 19:21, February 6, 2016 (UTC)
I'll do that. How did I do on the change (IP change) of that most recent range block? Jspoel Speech Jspoel 19:24, February 6, 2016 (UTC)

( Without knowing which IP address(es) this particular user was using, it's tough to tell. I'll assume it was more than one address of the form 178.162.216.x, in which case 178.162.216.0/24 is probably best for now, since you're only blocking 256 addresses, although, if that is the case, you also ought to remove the block on 178.162.0.0/16.

I was reading through what Callofduty4 said, and I'm not sure what Wikia's policies are on IP blocking, but looking at Wikipedia's guidelines, even a three month block on an a.b.0.0/16 range seems a little extreme for a first offense. If, as he said, "Just make sure no legitimate users are on the range", you're never gonna know what new legitimate users might use that range in the future.

Ultimately, the point of IP-based blocking is to make it just long enough for the user to give up and move on somewhere else, while not being too long to prevent legitimate users from creating accounts, and sometimes 24 hours may be enough.

Obviously, the part which states...

...the block should be extended (with the 'anon-only' option selected) as long as is necessary to prevent further disruption.

...isn't gonna help where malicious users are creating new accounts from those ranges, but it may be enough to deter users who are making edits anonymously.

Having said all that, I just noticed that Wikipedia's block list has all of 178.162.128.0 thru 178.162.255.255 as being blocked until 2019 for...

Colocators containing Zenmate and being abused

...so you may have issues with other addresses in that range in the future. Aya42 (talk) 21:15, February 6, 2016 (UTC)

Image categoriesEdit

Good morning!

I was wondering how to categorize images such as File:(MAG)_Wasteland_Survival_Guide_in_Crater_House.jpg and File:Wsg_1_farming_location.jpg. Should they go with the Category:Fallout 4 location images and Category:Fallout 4 miscellaneous item images tag or only with both the location image tag? I believe in the case of this kind of magazine picture we should only use the location image tag but do we have the same answer when speaking about images from the Teddy Bear gallery?

In the end I think the question is: 'Do we only want clean and cropped images in the 'miscellaneous item images' category or do we also accept pictures of miscellaneous items at locations where we can found them.

--YoDsanklai (talk, blogs) 05:26, February 11, 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for the answer, I did some clean up in the miscellaneous item images. I'll keep making regular edits on the quest project but I cannot do everything (especially writing wamlthroughs) and I hope some new editors will show up. --YoDsanklai (talk, blogs) 09:15, February 13, 2016 (UTC)

Scavenger faction ID? (USS Constitution) Edit

Hey there, I was wondering: do you know what the faction ID is for the Scavengers, particularly Mandy Stiles and Co., in The last voyage of the USS Constitution? Because I am stuck, trying to side W/the Scavengers, and every time I approach Mandy she goes hostile, and her lackeys too. HalloweenWeed (talk) 20:20, February 12, 2016 (UTC)

They're listed in the infobox for Mandy Stiles. If you want the form IDs, MS11ScavengersNPCFaction is 0008c9da, and MS11ScavengersOwnerFaction is 00096ea3, but I'm pretty sure you can just use the editor ID in the console if you don't know the form ID. Aya42 (talk) 20:39, February 12, 2016 (UTC)
Um, no, they're not, AFAICT HalloweenWeed (talk) 16:29, February 20, 2016 (UTC)
FYI your FactionIDs worked for me (made Mandy civil-like, could talk to her), however the Constitution quest apparently times out because it was listed in my "done" quests in pip-boy, and I couldn't get it to continue without resetting the quest, even using console commands.

Hey, I saw you corrected the link I added to Diamond City, thanks for that. But it now points to a mentioned-only character page, so they would need separate pages, right? One for the character mentioned in the note and one for the ghoul. —Atvelonis (talk) 23:11, March 6, 2016 (UTC)

Actually, scratch that, I found Billy Peabody just after posting this. So nevermind. —Atvelonis (talk) 23:12, March 6, 2016 (UTC)

Proxy Sockpuppets Edit

Hey Js, looks like the said user North/South/East/West/etc Heater is back under Special:Contributions/HePlaysTheBarber, I thought the range block might take them awhile to come back but they came back. Although they're already globally blocked across the ocean, you might as well get his/her new IP with a checkuser tool, then apply the range block to their current status to make them harder coming back to annoy us. --吉野Cassie Talk to me! ✿ 05:12, March 8, 2016 (UTC)

RE: Fallout Shelter names Edit

I am getting the names directly from the Android version of the game, via the Survival Guide. In regards to BoS uniform, it is listed as BoS Uniform. As for the variants, I don't know what they are. When I discover/unlock them, I will update the table. <-Omicron(Leave a message at the BEEP!) 22:37, March 8, 2016 (UTC)

Checkuser: Hoverboard2Edit

Would it be possible to get a check on this user? Qstlijku has stated that they believe this is the same person as NorthHeater, SouthHeater, EastHeater, and Westheater based on interactions on other wikis. Great Mara (talk) 02:34, March 10, 2016 (UTC)

Also suspect Hoverboard3 based on their edits. Great Mara (talk) 02:58, March 10, 2016 (UTC)
And now Hoverboard4. I think that speaks for itself. Great Mara (talk) 16:20, March 10, 2016 (UTC)

Had the same issues with this sock user awhile ago as well Mara, but seems like Js ignored my request few days or haven't checked them yet, its been past 2 days since my last request. Js, if by any chance: Could you check and apply the range block like the ones I requested few days ago, this Heater has been a disrupting the whole wiki, and it's troublesome. --吉野Cassie Talk to me! ✿ 03:27, March 11, 2016 (UTC)

ProfileTags script Edit

Hello! I see that you are using a old(er) version of a script I wrote a few years ago. This script has been massively updated!

question re: etiquette Edit

Hi, I'm assuming it was you who left me the message about not capitalizing trogs and wildmen (if not, hopefully you'll answer my question anyway). I'm fairly new to this wikia editing thing, and I figure it was easiest to just ask about proper etiquette. In a case of a comment like that, if I wanted to respond, would I just respond directly to that message, or leave a message for the person who left one for me (like I'm doing now). Mostly I just would like to not accidentally snub anyone, nor annoy anyone by responding in an inappropriate manner. Thanks! Obax42 (talk) 07:02, March 14, 2016 (UTC)

Wikia Insights WeirdnessEdit

The Insights module was showing this as a page that was still there, but when I added the delete page it showed up like it was a new page again. Can you nuke this please? Seo Expert

Automatron Edit

Why not? We've done the same thing for a simple quest of the same name, and the holotape is just as interactive, possibly more. Paladin117>>iff bored; 17:42, March 16, 2016 (UTC)

Why wouldn't people just search "Automatron" and then click "Automatron (add-on)", which will probably be the first result? That's what they've done for every other add-on. Paladin117>>iff bored; 17:54, March 16, 2016 (UTC)
I just don't understand why you have to be inconsistent and make this add-on the one exemption to how we handle add-ons' disambiguation. Paladin117>>iff bored; 18:30, March 16, 2016 (UTC)
So, can I move it back to fall in line with Operation: Anchorage, The Pitt, Point Lookout, Mothership Zeta, Old World Blues, Lonesome Road, and Far Harbor? Paladin117>>iff bored; 17:21, March 17, 2016 (UTC)

Automatron images Edit

Since I never really was involved in releases before, there was something I was hoping to ask. As far as I can tell, "pre-release screenshots" are mostly for screenshots released by Bethesda themselves, correct? Like the ones on their official site? Paladin117>>iff bored; 02:22, March 19, 2016 (UTC)

The Ada image actually is from Bethesda's twitter account. The main reason I ask this is because I realized I could get a better quality version from the trailer and was unsure of what to do. Paladin117>>iff bored; 02:34, March 19, 2016 (UTC)
Ok, thank you. Paladin117>>iff bored; 02:37, March 19, 2016 (UTC)

DiscussionsEdit

Hey, I noticed that discussions were added under every article, and Wikia made sure that it looks like the discussions are part of the article space. Can't say I like it and I doubt most people like it to see that some guy saying he's getting married looks like it's part of our articles. I experimented a bit and found a way to somewhat solve this issue. I was thinking of asking a bot to add a similar edit to this one http://fallout.wikia.com/wiki/Provisioner?diff=2541662&oldid=2541657 on every article before the "[[Category". What do you think? I know it's far from optimal, but this way at least, it doesn't look like it's part of the article. Or maybe we could add some lines before that large space to make it even more clear. - Greets Peace'n Hugs (talk) (blog) 00:17, March 21, 2016 (UTC)

I agree your ideas are better solutions, but I don't think we can do them, and I wouldn't count on any cooperation from Wikia... I think my proposition is the best solution of the options that are available to us. Or maybe Digital Utopia has a better plan? - Greets Peace'n Hugs (talk) (blog) 00:55, March 21, 2016 (UTC)
You can always ask, but i'm 99.9999% sure they won't give a damn. Wikia simply never cares if they push an update and no-one likes it. My proposition is hideous, but at least it doesn't infect the article itself. Right now, Wikia even made the layout to make it look like article text, not only by placing it before the categories, but even by adding a header that has the exact same layout as the other headers in the article. - Greets Peace'n Hugs (talk) (blog) 01:03, March 21, 2016 (UTC)
Can you please keep me updated on the outcome of the talks? In the mean time, I'll think a bit of possibly better methods than the endless blanks. - Greets Peace'n Hugs (talk) (blog) 01:20, March 21, 2016 (UTC)
Bedankt voor de info en voor het weg te krijgen. Qua Season Pass heb ik geen idee. Ik heb hem ook al van voor de release, maar ik heb de voorbije weken zo veel werk dat ik niet echt iets heb kunnen bijhouden qua FO4.

Location Template edit needed Edit

Automatron added a new map marker, for the The Mechanist's lair. I uploaded the image for it, but I can't add it to the types in Template:Infobox location, so it won't show appropriately. DulogoDigital Utopia (talk) 09:09, March 22, 2016 (UTC)

Fallout 4 holodisk/note article creation template update Edit

I noticed your update to Zoe's diary which has me wondering whether it would be appropriate to update the Fo4 holodisk/note article creation template. Currently, it instructs the contributor to insert the location and description in the opening section. That seemed inconsistent with other articles on this site, but I am a relatively new contributor, so I followed the template. However, your edit showed me that my original instinct was correct. Do you think the template should be changed to reflect the desired Location section?

User:ThePathOfBlood. He's playing stupid and obviously trolling. I know I don't have enough proof for that, but I thought I'd report it. Check his contribution too.

I can't figure out how to get the item ID's for the tesla parts. if you can add them that be fantastic. ThePathOfBlood

Disambig's. Edit

a real game breaker Edit

I have an in game glitch that thecoolboringguy said you may know about. One day when I loaded fallout 4 a lot of textures were messed up, the physical objects (e.g a wall) were still there and solid but the texture were stretched horribly covering my screen making me rely on V.A.T.S and noclip to maneuver enclosed areas such as fort hagen or diamond city. The game is still playable if I use a bit of console wizardry to "assist" me but I would love to not have to rely on it.

There seems to be a forum, Forum:Fallout 4 gameplay help, which doesn't appear in the Forum:Index.

Patroller request Edit

Hey Jspoelstra, I would like to apply for the position of patroller, understanding that this comes with more responsibilities. I believe that the abilities that come with the role of patroller would help prevent vandalism and improve the quality of our Wikia, as has been my goal since I first joined it. And while I missed an edit 75 days ago, I don't intend to let that happen again any time soon ;-) - FDekker talk 19:59, April 15, 2016 (UTC)

I understand that marking something as patrolled gives an edit my "seal of approval", but what exactly is its functionality? Is there perhaps an overview of unpatrolled posts or something like that?

Wasteland Workshop icon Edit

The coloring on the standard Wasteland Workshop icon makes it difficult to see on the standard table background, and to a lesser extent, on a white background...

Standard table fo4autGametitle-FO4 AUT fo4wwGametitle-FO4 WW
White fo4autGametitle-FO4 AUT fo4wwGametitle-FO4 WW

...and is particularly noticeable on Concrete#Shipments. Is there something that can be done about this, such as including a black border around it, similar to the Automatron one? Aya42 (talk) 13:52, April 16, 2016 (UTC)

I want stay as close as the original icon and keep the blue color. I've darkened the blue and think it's ok this way. People will recognize it sufficiently now. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 15:09, April 16, 2016 (UTC)

GageEdit

When I did this quest, I thought the subtitles spelled his name as "General Cage", but it's been a while and I don't remember clearly. And I think he would be a mentioned only character, as I've only heard about him from the recording from the tour bot at the pond. JMA4269 (talk) 18:39, April 28, 2016 (UTC)

If you haven't, you can just go to the tour bot and ask for a history on Boston Common. The dialog is really good from what I remember. I think there is another one in the area you can activate if the first one somehow gets destroyed, unless you can just pull the dialogue from the Creation Kit. I don't have a PC that can support Fallout 4 yet, so I'm not sure how any of that works. JMA4269 (talk) 22:08, April 28, 2016 (UTC)

Use of the Notable content template in bug sections Edit

Hey Js, I've noticed on several pages containing bug sections the addition/use of the notable content templates for said sections when the number of bugs greatly exceeds the amount of content actually in the article. I like the use of the template this way, as it helps streamline articles that tend to be particularly problematic, however given that the notable content template rotates between entries, I fear that users who encounter a bug and come to the wiki looking for a potential solution/validation for said bug will have difficulty finding it lest they go in and directly edit the page themselves.

Instead of a notable content template, would it be possible for us to make bug sections collapsible? This way it's not bogging down the load time/unnecessarily extending the length of an article, but all content will still be visible when opened? ---bleep196- (talk) 19:00, April 28, 2016 (UTC)

Ah, my apologies I got confused. Is there any way for us to nest bullet/sub points in the notable content template? I like the idea of the template, as it reduces the volume of the page while making it still visible (a collapsible could easily be missed) and since we can scroll through it I would like to implement it on some of the pages with larger numbers of bugs in a section. If not I will need to figure out a way to incorporate solutions/elaborations without making bugs that have sub bullets into one long paragraph.
Yeah, when I'm active I can keep an eye on overdue bugs and make sure to go through and verify/remove the ones that I can/can't replicate in game. Unfortunately, the past couple months I have been tied up with a heavy load of school work since this is my last semester in college. Hopefully now that summer approaches, I will be able to keep things in check. ---bleep196- (talk) 20:56, April 29, 2016 (UTC)
Scratch my previous question, I just noticed that nesting sub bullets is a feature of the notable content template. I'm going to initiate a discussion and make a proposition to set in stone in the bug policies that when an article has more than 5 bugs on the page, regardless of whether said bugs are verified or not, the notable content template should be used to reduce the clutter and length of the page. ---bleep196- (talk) 21:46, April 29, 2016 (UTC)
