Lighter in Blender Edit

I'm going to try to be as complete as possible, and split things up. Because there are a lot of steps to get everything right.

Blender OverviewEdit

Most of what you're going to be using, is the stuff on the right side bar, and the menu bar right below the viewport(s) and above the animation timeline - at the bottom of the window.

First, on that lower menu bar, look for the first dropdown button on the left, with a circle icon. It should be immediately to the right of the larger drop-down, that says "Object Mode". That's the "Viewport Shading" menu. Click that button, and select "Texture" from the menu.

Second, there should be two sections on the panel on the right. Each section has a dropdown button in the upper left corner, which allows you to change what is shown in that section. In this case, you need to make sure the topmost one, is set to "Outliner" - which looks like a tree view, showing a hierarchy of all items in the scene. This is very helpful for selecting specific objects from the scene, which we'll use later.

The bottom, larger section of this panel, should be set to properties, which will be used for materials/textures.

First StepsEdit

By default, when you open up Blender - there's a box sitting in the middle of the scene, conveniently selected for you already. It's a stupid box, so it must die. First make sure it's selected. If it is, it will have an orange border around it. If not, then right-click it. Finally, once it's selected, hit the delete key.

Next, import the exported collada mesh, and zoom in so that it fits in the viewport.

Since the stick of dynamite isn't necessary, go to the "Outliner" section, and expand it until you see the object named "nifid_77-matrix" (expanding it further, will reveal that it's a parent to the mesh named "Dynamite_0-lib"). To the right of the name, you'll see a few icons. The first looks like an eye, the second a pointer, and the third a camera. Clicking the eye will hide the dynamite mesh from the scene, and clicking the camera will hide it from rendering. So click both of those so we can better focus on the lighter.

Now, as you've probably noticed - all the meshes in the scene are untextured. We'll fix that a little later, as it's..well, frankly kinda obnoxious to do in Blender. So first, we're going to open the lighter up.

Opening the LighterEdit

The first step, is going back to that "Outliner" and clicking the little icon next to the object named "##Cap". This will select the object in the scene.

Next, go back down to that bottom menu bar (the one with the "Object Mode" drop down menu), and you should see a button with an icon, that has three multi-colored lines meeting at the center (red,blue and green). To the right of that button are your move, rotate and scale buttons, in that order.

So, since we need to rotate in order to open the lighter, click the rotate button, and you should see the "gizmo" change in the scene, to a spherical shape, with red, green, and blue axis.

Now, to open the lighter, you need to click and drag on the axis that best fits the direction the lighter opens. If you picked the right axis, and dragged in the right direction, you should see the lighter open. If you make a mistake, simply hit ctrl+z to undo, and try again.

TexturesEdit

As I mentioned above, textures are done kinda oddly in Blender. Actually adding a texture to a material (i.e. the right way) will not cause the mesh to show the texture, even if the Viewport Shading is set to "Texture" (see the Blender Overview section for a reminder, if you forgot where that is). It will however, show if Viewport Shading is set to "Rendered", but that performs so slowly, that it's nearly impossible to do anything in the scene while that mode is active. But, if you do it in the way so it shows up in the "Texture" Viewport Shading, it won't show up in the render.

Because this has already become a mini-novel, and going over all the Texture and Material options would at least take up double the space, I'll just cover the quick way, so it will show up in the scene.

So, start out by selecting the base lighter mesh - either by right-clicking on it in the scene, or selecting "__Lighter_0-lib" from the Outliner.

Next, click the "Face Select" button on the lower menu bar - it's to the right of the Move,rotate,scale buttons, and the icon looks like a cube with a single orange face. Then, hit the "A" key to select all (hitting A again will select none - it's a toggle).

Now, refer back to the "Blender Overview" section, regarding the drop-down buttons for the two sections of the right panel. On the larger one (should be currently set to Properties), change it to UV/Image_editor. You should see a light gray square with grid lines, and a bunch of triangles all laid out within it. This is the UV map - or basically where each face of the mesh, corresponds to a part of its texture.

Next, at the very bottom of the panel, click the button labeled "Image", and select "Open Image". When you select that, you'll be shown a file menu, that allows you to pick the texture. In this case, the texture you need is in /Data/textures/weapons/1handgrenadethrow/ and is named lighter.dds. Select that, and you should see the texture applied to the bottom part of the lighter.

Finally, simply hit "A" again to deselect.

Repeat this same process for the cap, and the lighter itself will be fully textured in "Texture" Viewport Shading.

ConclusionEdit

Despite being the easiest way, and the way that allows you to see the textured model in the viewport (without being in Rendered mode), doing textures this way has a number of limitations. Most notably, this won't work for the flame itself. Also, as already mentioned, no textures added this way, will show up in renders. Last but not least, the viewport won't show normal (bump) maps, and won't show textures with transparency. For this you'll need to do the materials and textures method.

I think I've covered most, if not all of the specifically fallout related parts of this, so you should be able to find plenty of Blender tutorials on youtube and elsewhere, should you want to learn how to work with materials, textures, and rendering. If you run into any problems, please let me know - and I'll do my best to help. Dulogo Digital Utopia (talk) 04:24, August 8, 2014 (UTC)

NavboxEdit

OKay.

Overview Links Edit

Hey Js, any idea what happened to the overhead link menu at the top of the wiki's page? It seems to have reset to the default "On the Wiki, Popular Pages, Community" Format where all the links that should be there have vanished. ---bleep196- (talk) 19:08, August 10, 2014 (UTC)

Ok this is really strange but, it seems to have fixed itself. I don't know what is going on but for about 10-20 minutes the navigation seemed broken, and now it's fixed. ---bleep196- (talk) 19:20, August 10, 2014 (UTC)
Yeah I noticed that too, they were probably implementing that new feature. However it seems a little bit strange that that would be a new feature, considering not every game has maps and for that to become a default part of the navigation menu seems...odd. ---bleep196- (talk) 19:25, August 10, 2014 (UTC)
Maps has been up there for some time. Maybe a week. I had this on other wikis yesterday. Sever cache issues, I'm sure. Not loading the wiki nav menu and defaulting to the default. Ain't the first time it's happened. The Gunny  UserGunny chevrons 21:53, August 10, 2014 (UTC)

Welcome message Edit

Why did you change the width from 26% to 20%? 26% fills up the space much better while the other option results in an awkward gap between the text columns and the VB image. Other than that I felt your message had the most fitting colours for the wiki's theme. --Skire (talk) 17:53, August 16, 2014 (UTC)

Hmm. I think it looks unnatural as the first column is squeezed downward ("policies and guidelines" and "New User Network" are forced into two lines instead of one), while as I mentioned there is a significant amount of empty now. It doesn't look aesthetically pleasing to me at all, and I don't think I can support it in that case =( But if you think the columns were too wide, would centring the headers of each column help? --Skire (talk) 18:15, August 16, 2014 (UTC)

KitsuneEdit

Thanks, I actually like writing the long types of pages, but I haven't really found much that needs expansion. I was kinda surprised there weren't pages for Kitsune and Cat Jules as well. Gonna try find some more. User ayyyy  OfficialLolGuy  Talk  Blog  18:40, August 19, 2014 (UTC)

RedirectEdit

I admit, I was kinnda in a rush, as I saw that Breakin' Benny tagged it for deletion as it was unnecessary. It seems it is not. Energy X 16:29, August 20, 2014 (UTC)

Christopher Jules Edit

Hello Js,

I was referencing the Christopher Jules article and it came to my attention that there were no sources for the, "Christopher" part of his name.

The name was spelled, "Christoper" in the article but I got no hits for, "Chris" on any EPA-related sources I quickly checked and felt I should bring it to your attention.

I'm sure his name comes from somewhere but I'm afraid I couldn't find it. If it remains elusive, a rename may be in order.

Happy editing! --The Ever Ruler (talk) 18:44, August 21, 2014 (UTC)

Kitsune Edit

Saw Broc was online, so I was having a discussion with him over the Kitsune article, as well as the dialogue file uploaded. From what I have read, everything from her name to her backstory were entirely fabricated by the mod developers, with help from a few writers long after Fallout 2 was ever created, meaning that the content we are now covering is mod content - not cut content.

There is some original content involved over cut content, but from what I am currently seeing, most of the information needs to be removed. Put up deletion tags for now, but would love the chance to see further discussion from your end in-case we are missing something. ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 20:41, August 22, 2014 (UTC)

I am sorry to hear that. :( I was really hoping I had missed something that you knew of - those were some quality articles.
If it is any consolation, I fully support the idea of covering Killap's content here at the wiki, so long as the community also approves. If a forum is ever started, please do not hesitate to shoot me a message so that I can support it. ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 22:53, August 22, 2014 (UTC)

WidthsEdit

I was wondering what the guidlines are. I've seen changes to 200, to 210, to 220, etc. Sometimes even in between those, and it makes me confused about what width is the current standard. Could you let me know so I can apply them in the future? Thanks in advance! - Greets Peace'n Hugs (talk) (blog) 00:46, August 23, 2014 (UTC)

Okay, thanks. And something completely different: I've seen you add bullets, while others remove them. I agree with you that it looks more neat with bullets than without, but is there a certain policy on this? And if not, shouldn't we have one? Because now so much useless work is done by adding and removing them every time. - Greets Peace'n Hugs (talk) (blog) 01:24, August 23, 2014 (UTC)

Old BenEdit

While I agree it's a "good" nickname, I was under the impression we didn't work with nicknames at all, for the same reason why "Lady Jane" is "Jane (Freeside) and not "Lady Jane". The trend we usually work with always seemed to be "Name the page after what their real name would be, not what they are referred to in game. I have no issue naming pages after what they are referred to in game (I actually prefer it) but I don't agree with the idea that "only good nicknames can stay". Jasper: The 2Spookie Shroomman! 18:41, August 30, 2014 (UTC)

Working on a case-to-case basis doesn't really work in my opinion, since this is a community website and working to a case-by-case basically means "whoever holds more power would get to chose", which makes me very uncomfortable. I would be perfectly open to just naming people by their nicknames (or in game)/real (full) names but not including titles (for example Old Ben and Lady Jane would be named as they are in game, but Dr. Li would remain as "Madison Li" and Mr. House would stay as "House"). Jasper: The 2Spookie Shroomman! 18:53, August 30, 2014 (UTC)
That seems like a pretty good rule of thumb. Thanks. Jasper: The 2Spookie Shroomman! 19:06, August 30, 2014 (UTC)

Short question Edit

Hello, J. You seem to know a lot about the Fallout games, and about Fallout in general. Could you please tell me, if you have any idea why do robots in Fallout 2 say "You got it?" in the small chat-box to the down-left corner when you try to repair them? Thanks in advance Raducu22 (talk) 23:03, September 5, 2014 (UTC)

The odd problem here is that it says "You got it?" with a question mark, and doesn't actually do anything to the robot. Everytime you try to repair a robot it says the exact same thing. Raducu22 (talk) 23:16, September 5, 2014 (UTC)

  • Tested with 300% all skills, and 10 in each stat. No change. Raducu22 (talk) 23:31, September 5, 2014 (UTC)
  • Well, as I said, it doesn't do anything to the bot. It does not repair it, or anything, it just keeps saying "You got it?" everytime you try to repair it. Raducu22 (talk) 23:58, September 5, 2014 (UTC)

Wikia lag Edit

Hey Jspoel, I know this isn't your usual territory, but I really need assistance with an accident I just had in the Hole blog because of infernal Wikia lag. I tried posting a comment in there for four times, which resulted in me posting the exact same thing 4 times. Would appreciate it if you or another admin/crat could delete three of those. Thanks.

Re: Party.txt Edit

That text file can be found in the game's resources, by extracting with F2undat or finding a party.txt from somewhere else like the Restoration Project. It includes information for all possible companions, and I think someone mentioned the "Doc" part in the Fallout Bible like Chris Avellone explaining John Cassidy's development name as MacRae. --Breakin'Benny (talk) 19:35, September 6, 2014 (UTC)

I couldn't pickpocket the mentioned items from her, I saw them and could click them, but they didn't switch inventory. The sound of losing karma however was heard everytime I clicked to pickpocket it. She also had 12 caps which could be stolen without any problem. If I killed her to loot her corpse, again, everything could be taken apart from those 3 items.- Greets Peace'n Hugs (talk) (blog) 20:14, September 7, 2014 (UTC)

Okay thanks. Looks great. Jasper: The 2Spookie Shroomman! 01:56, September 8, 2014 (UTC)

Thank you very much for at least not instantly assuming I was a troll given to posting conjecture or "speculation" as Raoul so rudely put it in his reversion email. There was no need for him to make that assumption- it's not like I claimed the code message said OBAMA IS A COMMUNIST TRAITOR or something equally troll-ish. Why does Raoul imagine that I, or anyone else, would post such an innocuous message translation, obviously a rare gem of a find that no one before me had found, and then "speculate" that it said WAR NEVER CHANGES? Compounding his false and arrogant assumption of trollery, he emails me that I must provide "proof" of what the message says! What the hell! I **AM** a subject matter expert on Morse code! It's like telling me I must provide "proof" that "egg" means "an embryo in a shell." His reversion of my edit, and his rude assumption of trollery, do not represent an entity that wants to encourage user input (i.e., a wiki) very well.

I learned Morse Code in 1960 because at that time, CW (continuous wave, i.e. "pure" tones using Morse Code) was the primary mode of long-distance radio communication in the Navy aircraft I flew. SSB (Single Sideband, i.e. voice) was just coming into use, but it wasn't the primary mode.

During and after my Navy duty, I was an Advanced Class Amateur Radio Operator ("Ham Radio") and continued to use Morse Code for decades. Altogether, I have used it for approximately 55 years. I say all this to let you know that I do, in fact, know what I am talking about regarding Morse Code- it's a second language to me.

Again, thank you for not dismissing my find out of hand as Raoul did. Glad to know saner heads ultimately prevailed.

So, I actually found the file and was able to change the typo and re-upload the new image. As for a new crop out of the character - that might have to wait till Thursday, is that okay? She definitely deserves a FIGHTING chance. :)

MediaWiki change needed Edit

I need the domain on the MediaWiki page changed, because I'm an idiot and forgot to renew it. Just need the ".net" changed to ".org". I'll fix the other links. Thanks Dulogo Digital Utopia (talk) 04:53, September 12, 2014 (UTC)

Never mind - looks like you added one for Capital Wasteland as well. Well, same thing I guess. Dulogo Digital Utopia (talk) 04:55, September 12, 2014 (UTC)
At any rate - got a pretty nice update on the above mentioned maps done. Features are as follows:
  • Popups are working, and will grab the first part of the page text (between any quotes and the nav) and the infobox image, directly from the page. It handles redirects fine, and will update on open.
  • Popups also contain a "See More" link, that will open up the full page in another tab/window
  • Hovering over the marker will now show a Pip-boy style tooltip under the marker, with the name of the location
  • Scrollable filter menu has been added, also done in Pip-boy style - hidden by default.
  • A top bar has been added, similar to the collapsible tables at the bottom of a page, to both make it fit in a bit better, and give a toggle for the filter pane
  • Both maps now feature a byline in the bottom right with the text "By Digital_Utopia for Nukapedia", with relevant links. Basically taking credit where it's due, and hopefully discouraging other sites from making use of them.
Still on the "to-do" list:
  • Regions for New Vegas (Fallout 3's are temporarily removed)
  • Maps in a popup for said Regions
  • Other stuff (Basically anything and everything that would require server-side/url variables)
I figured if you're going to add them to the site, I might as well make them worth having, beyond the detail. :p Dulogo Digital Utopia (talk) 07:54, September 12, 2014 (UTC)

Cut FO2 perksEdit

I'm going trough the Russian wiki and I noticed they have pages about cut FO2 perks giving +1 to certain SPECIAL stuff, do I translate these pages so we have them as well? - Greets Peace'n Hugs (talk) (blog) 23:33, September 19, 2014 (UTC)

For some reason I can't upload the pictures for the cut consumables. Is there some mininumsize over here that doesn't count on the Russian wiki or so? It's just a png file, so I don't think it's a problem with a certain file-type.- Greets Peace'n Hugs (talk) (blog) 00:36, September 21, 2014 (UTC)
It was weird: everything seemed to work well, and at the end of the upload window, when it jumps to the recent images, it just didn't show the new image, and when I then just added the file link on the page, the image also wasn't displayed. Didn't have any similar issue before, so I have no clue what it might have been.- Greets Peace'n Hugs (talk) (blog) 01:13, September 21, 2014 (UTC)

Garoux BloodlineEdit

Hi J,

Leon today has falsely accused me of telling users to unfollow the moose on twitter.

I want to make it clear that I have never told anyone to unfollow anything on twitter.

I'm tired of the campaign of harassment that has been coming from him, directed at me, as far as I am concerned a blatant false accusation like this with no grounding in reality is the final straw.

I've demanded an apology for now, and if I get one I'll be satisfied with it. Any repeat and I feel administrative action will be required.

Agent c (talk) 06:30, September 22, 2014 (UTC)

Just going to leave a copy of my reply to him on here, as well:

Here is what I am looking at:

  1. You start an entire forum to complain about our Twitter, instead if coming to either of us directly.
  2. Shortly after Chris leaves his last message, you unfollow me, Chris, and the official SNM Twitter.
  3. Not even 10-30 minutes after you unfollow all 3, so does Nukapedia.
  4. You were the last person to post anything on Twitter, and you are the one on there essentially 98% of the time.
  5. As for the telling people to unfollow us, I said that that was not worth going into further discussions over, as all I have is that 11-13 other people also unfollowed us at the same time as you did, and nearly all of them were from Nukapedia (a few were just random people that are not connected to either Nukapedia or the Moose - but only a few). Since I have no real proof aside from the considerable circumstantial evidence, I will just drop that like I had already dropped it earlier.

But the rest paints a rather clear picture to me, and all I am asking is to have the official Twitters brought back together since they are affiliated with each other by the community. ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 11:57, September 22, 2014 (UTC)

ContEdit

Alright, we should probably talk later, J. Initially, I had plans to just bring this to a community forum to restore our Twitter affiliation, but...

  1. I am being threatened with a ban
  2. Chad still has not restored our Twitter affiliation
  3. He has now lied to me, by saying that we were not or ever unfollowed by him or Nukapedia, which is blatantly disproven by looking at our followers list, which are now devoid of their presence

I want to make it clear that I did not make this accusation blindly, and that I am open to the thought that there might be a small chance that this was not the fault of Chad. But all circumstantial evidence points towards him, and his odd lie to me just a few minutes ago does not help at all. Ultimately, though, all we are asking for is for our official Twitter affiliation to go back to normal, or for some formal community discussion to take place. That is it. ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 12:22, September 22, 2014 (UTC)

Leon you are now lying about my statements.

1. I said I would refer it to an admin for administrative action. You are harassing me. 2. I'm not at home. You see regular people go to other places where they don't have their laptop. 3. I am still waiting for to to apologise for your defamitory statements today. 4. I said to the best of my recollection they were never linked, but such a thing was possible. I invited you to give the date/time of the alleged unfollowing, you have failed to provide this.

If you are unwilling to apologise I am happy to discus this with another member of the moose staff. Until then I am tired of Leon's blatant false accusations, and leons assumption of bad faith from me doing simple things like sleeping, and going to class. Agent c (talk) 13:01, September 22, 2014 (UTC)

  1. Point 1 I will apologize for: however, it was not a lie, but a misinterpretation, as you have brought up banning me before, and it is hard to tell when you are speaking theoreticals or not.
  2. I understand that, but you just said to me earlier that Nukapedia never unfollowed us, which to me, seems as if you are not even looking into the matter.
  3. While you are innocent until found guilty, I still have the right to accuse should enough circumstantial evidence be present. While in no way am I saying that my accusation is right, I am still having to go off of what is in front of me, and all of this weirdness currently points towards you. If it is discovered that you are innocent, then I see no reason as to why I would not apologize.
  4. I have no exact date. All I know is that this all happened sometime between 9:50 PM - 10:20 PM. ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 13:09, September 22, 2014 (UTC)


Right, I am now at home and have Tweetdeck open.

Nukapedia Follows Chris. It has done for a very long time, I think since the account was open. So do I.

Nukapedia does not Follow either Moose account, and I don't follow Nukapedia on my personal account (although Nukapedia does follow me). I do not believe it has ever followed either moose account to the best of my recollection, as there would have been no need for me to follow it - I follow accounts on Nukapedia (as I did when I used my mostly personal account) in order to try to have a relevant news feed to pull the news digest from.

As I was supposedly the person doing the tweeting (as would have been my understanding at the time), there would have been no reason for me to follow it, as presumably I would know the content anyway.

I have also looked at the Skype Conversation when Leon created his account, and there is no mention of me following any account, just adding it to the tweetdeck.

Looking at the Activity feeds for both Moose accounts, I can see follows that appear to be from the account creation (The accounts following each other). They are for some reason undated in my feed, but on Leon's one I the earliest dated one is a mention of Leon's account (by Franky) about 720 days ago, with people like Nate and Jasper following prior to this message.

I can see on the official Moose account the oldest message being a message 58 days ago, and follows from before that, including Leon following that account.

I can find no retweets from Nukapedia of any moose post, I can however see us retweeting Chris's moose related posts.

I'm left with the overall conclusion that this is a molehill that has been turned into a mountain with accusations of Bad Faith coming from nowhere. As I have mentioned before, I use the Tweetdeck application to manage these feeds, and even getting to a list of followers, much less working out how to unfollow them, is a chore and a half - its designed to post in many feeds, respond and retweet, not so much for member management.

I do not know if Nukapedia or myself ever followed these feeds. I do not believe it to be the case, and I have been offered no proof to show that they have.

If Leon is willing to apologise for his accusations of bad faith, I'm willing to put this behind me, although I am remain increasingly concerned about the ongoing harassing nature of his communication towards me, and I am certain he is making similar accusations if not worse, in private.

Failing this, I will discuss the matter of the twitter feeds following each other when another member of the Moose team contacts me, or appears in Chat. Agent c (talk) 13:46, September 22, 2014 (UTC)

  1. Nukapedia just recently re-followed Chris, then, as he notified me last night that Nukapedia was no longer following him, and after checking it myself, confirmed this personally as well. Unless both of us are suddenly liars?
  2. Back when I was first establishing social media for the Moose, we made our connections through most of Nukapedia's social media. We were followed by Nukapedia's Twitter, Danny agreed to repost some stuff on Nukapedia's Tumblr, and we have always kept close tabs on Nukapedia's Youtube and Formspring. There is no question that Nukapedia used to follow us - and we have always followed Nukapedia.
  3. That is correct - Nukapedia retweeted various Moose related sources from Chris' accounts - not sure if that has ever been done directly from my personal Twitter, though. Was never really a dispute point.
  4. I will have Chris go in and discuss Twitter affiliations, then. But there is still way too much weirdness going on for me to apologize on anything. I am now even more wary, because of the fact that Nukapedia all of the sudden following Chris again. ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 14:47, September 22, 2014 (UTC)
Actually, slight correction: looking back at my discussion with Chris, we confirmed that Nukapedia was no longer following our official Twitter, but that Nukapedia was still following his personal account with only Chad having unfollowed him. That was miscommunication on my part. ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 15:03, September 22, 2014 (UTC)

The only mention of following in the conversation when we changed the handle on your twitter is from you being forced to follow stuff in the account setup process. The only similar reponse from me is to confirm I had "added you to my deck". I see no evidence at all that any following was done by me.

The addition of the second account was from discussion with Chris in PM, so I dont have a record of it. However, it would have followed a similar process, so again, I would have had no prompt to follow.

No evidence has been presented of any link ever being in place.

However, this is all by the by. If Leon will apologize for his accusations of bad faith, I will be more than happy to follow his accounts. If he is still unable to do so, I am happy to do so on request of any member of Moose staff who does not engage me in a threatening, defamitory or otherwise harassing way.

Time's almost up for review of SNMEdit

I just reread the authorization of the affiliation with the SNM. It was clearly stated that the association would be reviewed after 6 months. That will be in 8 days. I was wondering what form that review will take? Another forum to discuss the advantages/disadvantages? Just wanted to get the ball rolling on this, please let me know. The Gunny  UserGunny chevrons 20:00, September 22, 2014 (UTC)

ReplyEdit

I agree: I have simply become jaded. It has gotten to the point, where a lot of weird stuff keeps happening to me and around Nukapedia in general, and it always seems to be Chad involved. Maybe that has made me more suspicious, and as I said to Chad personally, I am in no way saying that my accusations are fact, but that the circumstantial evidence definitely points to him in my eyes.

Anyways, almost none of this really matters. The main body of my message to him was to see if there was an explanation involved. Since there has not been one, I am simply asking to have our Twitter affiliation restored, or for a community forum to begin in which we could discuss the matter properly. Right now, he has agreed to talk about the Twitter affiliation through my use of a Moose representative, which I will be doing shortly. That is what matters, as the rest I could not care about since it mostly involves personal accounts which means nothing in the grand scheme of things.

So I consider this case closed for now. If it is discovered that someone else did it, or some other weird variable is behind this, then I am fully willing to apologize for my accusations. I guess for now, we will just have to see what happens with the affiliation re-evaluation Gunny is starting with the bureaucrats. Just keep in mind, that all Chris was wanting to do was host a bit of fun for everyone. I fail to see how that warrants any sort of formal discussion, since no one ever asked for administrative permission to host other community features on the Nukapedia Twitter, but I will leave that in your hands for now (although I am trusting that the community will get a say, since they were the ones that decided on our affiliation).

Re: Inactivity Edit

I told Ever in chat and I assume it will get out anyways so I might as well just post it. I got married in August. With planning the wedding, traveling, and preparing both of us for school time has been somewhat limited. As I was an advocate of users using the inactive list I thought it was time for me to take my own advice. I may actually have more time in the future, I cannot say, but the move was more based on symbolism. I don't intend to be gone permanently, and as of this point I intend on trying to drop in more frequently if I can. I appreciate the consideration.

Check User Request Edit

Hey Js, could you check the IPs of these three users and see if they're the same? These three consecutively entered after the ban of the previous for spamming, harassment of other users, and generally being a dick.

  1. User:Rigged Cock Fights
  2. User:DBD Abyss Jr.
  3. User:Am I Chaos 379 or Are You Chaos 379

It doesn't really matter if they are the same IPs as this user is likely deterred from returning to troll as he did, but if it comes to it again, I may ask you to block that IP.

Regardless, I hope you can find the time to assist in this matter, but know it's currently in-hand. --The Ever Ruler (talk) 20:11, October 2, 2014 (UTC)
