Avery LeeEdit

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. ☢ Energy X ☣ 21:44, May 26, 2016 (UTC)

Jules VerneEdit

Hi Jspoelstra,

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? Kennyannydenny (talk) 14:21, May 27, 2016 (UTC)

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)

VoteEdit

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? ☢ Energy X ☣ 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. --YODIcon ink container 18:37, June 10, 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for the answer. I appreciate the guidance. --YODIcon ink container 22:22, June 10, 2016 (UTC)

Marine armor helmetEdit

Hi Jspoelstra,

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.

SpammerEdit

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. --176.145.192.166 14:37, June 20, 2016 (UTC)

You can ignore the last message. It has already been dealt with. --176.145.192.166 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?

Lastly, inside an infobox, should I place the add-on icon at the beginning or at the end of the line it is applied to? Examples: Acid or Anti freeze bottle.

--YODIcon ink container 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 Fox 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)

Navbox and categoriesEdit

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.
    • Example: Creatures navbox.
    • Benefit: It will be easier to keep track of the navboxes since we will be able to see if each category directly has its navbox and associated page, like Category:Far Harbor.

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. --YODIcon ink container 17:44, June 27, 2016 (UTC)

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.

--YOD (ಠ_ಠ) 13:20, July 4, 2016 (UTC)

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)

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)

x-13 Edit

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. 99.253.64.188 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! 99.253.64.188 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)

infoboxesEdit

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?

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)

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.

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!

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.

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: Fo4 Fast travel target 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?

Mentioned-only charactersEdit

Hi Jspoelstra, first of all, sorry to bother you again, I don't want to be a burden. I have a another quick question. Some of the mentioned-only character pages, related to Nuka-World, I've created have been nominated for deletion. This regards: [[Maria (Nuka-World)|Maria]], [[Nick (Nuka-World)|Nick]], [[Ryan (Nuka-World)|Ryan]], Rob, [[Liz (Nuka-World)|Liz]], [[Mike (Nuka-World)|Mike]], [[Kevin (Nuka-World)|Kevin]], Edgemont, and Boone.

I really didn't expect that since we created pages like this for a long time, for example: Barb. This page contains just as much as my created pages, so I didn't expect just these to be marked for deletion as not notable. Are these people indeed not notable? If so, shouldn't we delete some of the older pages we have too? There are a lot more mentioned only character pages with not much content. Kennyannydenny (talk) 18:54, September 3, 2016 (UTC)

Ok thanks for the answer! I've sent him a message. Kennyannydenny (talk) 19:13, September 3, 2016 (UTC)
After discussing the subject I think me and Palladin117 can better agree to disagree. I've updated several articles so that they do meet the standards Paladin117 requested, unfortunately about the rest of the people isn't much other infomation available.

Name of the Quest Hunter/Hunted Edit

Hallo J, Hunter/Hunted is an unfortunate name for a Quest, because "/" seperates subpages. Nevertheless Hunter/Hunted is the right name o_O -- Donnerkiesel (talk) 16:05, September 5, 2016 (UTC)

We had this issue on the CoD wiki with the MG08/15. We managed to fix it by no longer having an "MG08" page (which was a redirect page at the time). However this may not work here as your "Hunted" page has a lot of information on it that I assume cannot be moved. 16:22, September 5, 2016 (UTC)
I figured as much given how full the page is. However I still figured you might want to know about our experience with it. 16:42, September 5, 2016 (UTC)

Ghoulrillas and GorillasEdit

Hello, I noticed that the new creatures added in Nuka-World known as Ghoulrillas were put on the Gorilla page. According to wikia precedent, if an animal of some sort mutates and is renamed into something new, it traditionally gets its own page as a new creature. This is proven by the Human, Ghoul, and Super mutant pagee and many others. All of these are different mutated variants of the same species yet they all are given new pages because they are a new creature. I cannot think of any occurrence in the past where representations of the original species and a new mutated version have been put together on the same page.

It must also be taken into account that the original gorilla page was made and intended for Synthetic gorillas, ones that are not natural or related to Ghoulrillas. Even if they are both very similar in appearance and AI, that does not mean they can be put together as one, for lore purposes. I would like to request that Ghoulrilla be given their own page, separate from Gorilla. --Opifex1 (talk) 04:46, September 9, 2016 (UTC)

I get your point that they look and act similar, but the lore of the "Gorilla" says that they are synthetic and not biological gorillas. That is completely different from a Ghoulrilla because they mutated from actual biological gorillas in game. The "Gorilla" page should have the robot and computers infobox and not the creature one since all synths are listed as robots and computers. This causes the dilemma of having a biological creature and a robot sharing the same page. Since this is such a special circumstance that there are 2 similar creatures in game with very different lore and background I strongly suggest making two separate pages to keep them organized in the correct categories. You also stated that it doesn't show up in the search bar anymore, meaning it will be hard to find. Like I said before, I cannot think of any occurrence in the past where the pre-war "original" species and a new mutated version have been put together in the same game. --Opifex1 (talk) 04:24, September 11, 2016 (UTC)

Capitalization Edit

I've recently edited the All Aboard page to remove the capital "G" at "gunners", so that it fits the Fallout_Wiki:Editing_guideline#Capitalizing. But after that, you changed it back to the way it was before, with the capital "G". I'm leaving this message here just to make sure if I did something wrong by changing that. By reading the guidelines and comparing it to other pages, I think that the "G" shouldn't be capitalized, but I could be wrong.

Generic character names should not be capitalized.

When the Sole Survivor approaches this vault for the first time, a group of raiders will be trying to force their way in - what triggered the emergency broadcast calling for help - and Overseer Barstow will be constantly telling them to stop and saying that all their efforts will be useless.

Thanks for explaining me why it's capitalized. That reason came to my mind before asking, but I ended up asking anyway after not having a clear answer on the editing guidelines. I believe this case falls into the "If it's not clear whether a name is a proper name or a common one, naming should be discussed and decided on a case by case basis" section there. 18:39, September 11, 2016 (UTC)
I've added this example to the editing guidelines to help others that might have the same question. If it's not suitable to be there, then simply revert my edit. But I guess I managed to make it clear there. I hope so. Thanks again. 18:54, September 11, 2016 (UTC)

Western RevolverEdit

I've added a higher quality version of the western revolver image to the WesternPistol.png, but I don't know how to change it to the current image for the infobox. It still uses the one you uploaded, at least on my end. JMA4269 (talk) 01:04, September 10, 2016 (UTC)

Never mind, seems that I just had to wait for a while. JMA4269 (talk) 01:11, September 10, 2016 (UTC)

New consumable addiction properties?Edit

I was wondering if you'd be able to see if any of these drinks had an addiction effect if you had time later. It's taking a long while trying to mix up batches of drinks manually in-game to check. I've seen the Nuka-Cola Dark effect for myself, but downing around 15 ice cold Nuka-Cola Darks didn't cause an addiction effect for some reason. The nuka-mixed drinks that contain alcohol and med-x are on a list on my sandbox page, here: http://fallout.wikia.com/wiki/User%3AGreat_Mara/sandbox#Addictive.3F Great Mara (talk) 17:37, September 10, 2016 (UTC)

Thank you. Although it seems a bit odd that it would only be those three. Otherwise, I'm not sure an adminship run would be with flying colors. Also lacking the PC games for GECK files is another problem. My laptop right now can't even run New Vegas properly and what money I do end up saving is usually going to auto or vet bills instead of a new PC. Great Mara (talk) 00:26, September 11, 2016 (UTC)

hello jpolestra have a problem in my ps3 I can not escuhar 's music radio galaxy and have made the mission could help me fix it . Thank you

Top Contributors Edit

I've wanted to ask this for a long time now, and just happened to remember, so I'll ask before I forget about it again.

I noticed that when browsing wiki pages on my mobile device, there's a section quite at the bottom of the page called "Top Contributors to this article", and while browsing on the PC, such section is nowhere to be found.

Just wanted to check if it's supposed to be this way, if there's any option I can enable to show that on PC or if it's already there and I'm blind.

Thanks, 18:07, September 18, 2016 (UTC)
Oh, and by the way, I'm asking you this because you've been around here for, well, almost forever and you probably know everything or almost everything there is to know here. 18:08, September 18, 2016 (UTC)
This is what I'm talking about: screenshot

File namesEdit

I have a real question now. How do you get your file names for the images to be spaced and not have underscores in them? JMA4269 (talk) 22:44, September 19, 2016 (UTC)

Never mind, it's weird. A while ago, I would save an image and name it something like "FO4NW Sharpshooter western revolver.jpg", but when I upload it onto a page it would appear as "FO4NW_Sharpshooter_western_revolver.jpg" and removing the underscores would remove the image. But now that you've mentioned that, all of my images that haven't been updated have spaces, so I don't get it. Guess it doesn't matter now, it was just something that used to bug me. JMA4269 (talk) 23:25, September 19, 2016 (UTC)
Oh, and thanks! I don't know why that was happening, but it works. JMA4269 (talk) 23:29, September 19, 2016 (UTC)

Cruz (disambiguation) deletion question Edit

I believe the page for Cruz: Disambiguation well deserves to exist. I cannot see a reason why it shouldn't; according to the Fallout Wikia, if a certain word may refer to more than one given page, disambiguation pages are requested to be created. For that matter, scrolling down the Disambiguation category page, I find numerous pages for that which only two articles are being distinguished (Cruz: Disambiguation would distinguish between three, not a lot, but how come it deserves to be deleted and not the rest?) And finally, - no disrespect to you, JSP - why should the page be deleted anyways? It's not like we're trying to save 'website space', and the page contains no harmful functionality. Is it unnecessary in general? Likely so. But even the smallest bit of function, if there is nothing bad on the page, should have its place. What wrong can it do?

Respectfully, NomadMC (talk) 23:28, September 20, 2016 (UTC)

Edit: This issue has been cleared up on my talk page. Clear and understood JSP, keep the edits a-comin'! NomadMC (talk) 18:15, September 21, 2016 (UTC)

Featured content missing from Fallout's mobile main page Edit

Hey Jspoelstra,

I noticed there's no featured content curated for your mobile main page. There are great featured categories, but the featured content section at the top is empty. This is a bit of missed opportunity since that's the first thing users of the Fallout community app and mobile visitors see, and the best spot for showcasing your best and most current content.

It'd be great to have something linked there, and I'm sure you could think of a few great topics visitors would be interested in. Do you think you might consider putting some of your top content there? Or did you maybe even have content there before, but had to remove it? If that's the case, I'd love to know why you needed to remove it. Maybe there's a problem with the feature that I can help you with?

Looking forward to hearing what you think! Mira Laime @Wikia  (help forum | blog) 08:36, September 21, 2016 (UTC)

Hi J, I'll reply to this if you don't mind. I'm redoing the front page, and the mobile page was going to follow after that's done. My plan for featured content will be reusable in the mobile page. Agent c (talk) 10:52, September 21, 2016 (UTC)

I added the content you suggested to the mobile main page by basically moving it from the category "Nuka World" that was the first featured category straight to the big featured content section at the top. I think that makes that content quite a bit more noticeable. I didn't run into any problems while doing so, but if stuff vanishes again when you make changes or with future updates, please let me know!

Underscores vs. no underscores in links Edit

Just out of curiosity, does removing/adding underscores for ref. links to other articles actually change anything (since the spaces are automatically changed to underscores when link is pressed) or is it just a consistency/OCD thing? If so, cool, I've got a great deal of OCD myself but, just wondering what does it do? NomadMC (talk) 00:50, September 22, 2016 (UTC) P.S. Yeah, I can use web editors (Classic wikia is very nice actually) but I'm pretty newbie to the concept of source code, so if it involves source code I might not understand much in that direction.
