Re: Armor pages for Fallout Shelter Edit

I think that it will make easier to find if somebody is looking for it. I didn't knew about appearence thing in armor and clothing pages but thanks for the advice. I'll leave you to decide if we are going to make a pager for each item like armors and guns. If you wish to continue and you dont have an apple thing to play the game you can get somethings from here.

I'm going to sleep now... you know class tomorrow.

BTW I talked with gunny about those infobox. I said that we gonna need to build a new one cause is an simple style of statistics for those pages. I'm waiting he to see that and also I've already placed basic stats to upload in to the infobox when it get finally ready we'll be able co make those pages the right way. I would like to know too if you guys have rules or regulation to formatting item pages that you can send me to give a look at it.

I think I'm supposed to use the Wasteland medic page as standard model for Fallout shelter armors? Lincoln Speak! 21:24, June 16, 2015 (UTC)
Actually those armors and guns are found in aleatory places like lunch box and wile somebody is exploring the wasteland so I think that there is no need for them. Lincoln Speak! 21:32, June 16, 2015 (UTC)

Fallout Shelter charactersEdit

Should they get their own page or should we put both games on the same character page? Normally I'd say their mention isn't relevant enough, but I'm afraid it'll cause confusion about SPECIAL, armor etc. What do you think? - Greets Peace'n Hugs (talk) (blog) 14:19, June 16, 2015 (UTC)

Apologies Edit

My apologies about the capitalization. And I accidentally placed the gallery there, I noticed and went to fix it but it was already fixed, presumably by you. And not being allowed to remove the chat from my profile is important for me to know, thank you. RadiationKing13 (talk) 17:38, June 16, 2015 (UTC)

ReplyEdit

Actually, I did. But this page also mentions that new feature to include those characters, with that few feature. It is because I don't know how to name that new feature... any ideas? ☢ Energy X ☣ 16:26, June 16, 2015 (UTC)

ShelterEdit

I was just making sure the pages were decapped and only disambiguated when needed. I'm on the fence about individual pages. I'd say make the pages if the content is at least as long as the crappy pages for games like BOS and whatnot if they have their own pages. We should at least be consistent. If those games don't have their own pages, then these shouldn't either. The Gunny  UserGunny chevrons 20:59, June 16, 2015 (UTC)

And no. I'm waiting for the android version. My tablet is larger than my phone and my eyes suck. I'll probably see if I can whip up a quick infobox just to see if we can make these pages have enough content to be presentable. The Gunny  UserGunny chevrons 21:00, June 16, 2015 (UTC)
Are we going to make any changes to Ifobox armor gamebryo? Because It has different actions in to this game than the past ones giving atributes but I didn't saw informations abou weight, item HP or if is needed to repair it beside that no base id. Lincoln Speak! 21:59, June 16, 2015 (UTC)

New Armor SystemEdit

How are we supposed to display all of the armor pieces? (Helmet, torso, arms, and legs) In addition to that, when I type in a value it doesn't show up in the infobox, so what am I doing wrong if I might ask? RadiationKing13 (talk) 14:46, June 17, 2015 (UTC)

I think that we found a little issue. Every main character that appears on Fallout Shelter is actually a character from a past game as Moira Brown. I'm not sure if we build new pages for the or just adds new sections on their pages.Lincoln Speak! 20:12, June 18, 2015 (UTC)

Site nav Edit

You clipped off the canceled games level 2 list from the site nav when you changed it to Fallout Shelter. We need a fix for this. We either go with abbreviations, or add the canceled games to the level 2 "Other games" list. Pick one. The Gunny  UserGunny chevrons

I've changed it back for now. Something on Level 2 is too long and that makes it a pain for me to edit, I have to rename it, change it, and then rename it back to avoid the "too many characters" safety. A permenent solution is on the list for Saturday's meeting. Agent c (talk) 22:53, June 18, 2015 (UTC)
I already had shelter on there though... I had to hack around it the first time. Agent c (talk) 23:11, June 18, 2015 (UTC)
The edit you made to the main intro template seriously screwed up the front page. I changed it to 3 rows, as it's the only way it's gonna display without looking like crap with 9 games/links. If you don't want 3 rows, we're gonna have to change the icons/links again. The Gunny  UserGunny chevrons 23:52, June 18, 2015 (UTC)
It did not look good. It was 2 rows with 9 icons. You placed two icons, BOS and canceled games into the same table cell, which screwed up the cell widths, overriding the css. You got to remember that we do not make site appearance changes based off of super wide screen. Default is still 1084px. If you're going to make changes like the site nav and front page/css, you need to make sure it looks ok at that size. Or better yet, ask me to make them and I'll check them in a sandbox or tampermonkey before they're published. Don't forget what Shining said about cached changes. It can take forever for the site to recover for anons. The Gunny  UserGunny chevrons 00:10, June 19, 2015 (UTC)

Fallout Shelter's characters Edit

The example is ready at Bittercup (Fallout Shelter). Lincoln Speak! 14:29, June 20, 2015 (UTC)

The problem with the Fallout's shelter characters is that they can do what ever you want. I mean that they can go to the wasteland, work in any room of the vault or just go to the living quartes to have some "fun" if you know what I mean. I'm really not sure about how to build this page. There is one thing that I want to know and is about the Background because she comes from the wasteland when you unlock her and there is no little story. Lincoln Speak! 14:49, June 20, 2015 (UTC)

Competition UpdateEdit

As was determined in today's meeting, a few changes in my sandbox became necessary, and said changes have now been made. It was also determined that the bureaucrats should read over the changes, making sure that everything is up to Nukapedia's standards, before coming to a collective decision as to whether or not I can bring this competition up for community consideration.

It was proposed to me in the meeting, since my prizes are all Bethesda-related, that I should reach out to Bethesda to see if they are willing to endorse/help cover the costs of some of the prizes, in order to help establish legitimacy and help draw in additional attention. I have already sent a message out, and should they answer, I will be updating all communities involved with this competition immediately.

In the meantime, please take this sandbox into consideration, and get back with me at your earliest convenience (before the 25th would be for the best, since I do have other involved communities to take into consideration). Thank you for your time. User:Sarkhan the Sojourner 23:41, June 20, 2015 (UTC)

Just an update that I need an answer by tonight/early tomorrow. I have already put off the competition for over 2-weeks, and with the competition spanning over months, with Fallout 4 allegedly coming out in November of this year, I cannot afford to spend too much more of that time waiting around.
If I get approval here, I can afford one more week, in regards to getting a community forum started and a consensus gained. In the case where a consensus can be reached, I can be ready to immediately have Nukapedia involved, and the competition started. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Lincoln's Repeater FOS Edit

Howdy J, I noticed the image you uploaded for the Lincoln's repeater in Fallout Shelter and I was curious about it, as it isn't a lever action rifle as it was in FO3, but rather appears to be an M1 Garand similar to This Machine. What's up with that? Richie9999 (talk) 20:35, June 21, 2015 (UTC)

I'd argue that Lincoln's Repeater likely uses the same image as the lever action rifle rather than a hunting rifle. It is entirely possible that we are missing weapons, as the game, from one of the screenshots on the Shelter page, has 139 weapons, while we only list 89 on the weapons page. Richie9999 (talk) 20:48, June 21, 2015 (UTC)

FOS weapons pageEdit

Why did you move the fat man and variants out of alphabetical order? I could understand if you were trying to line things up by increasing damage, but that's not the case either. Typically, tables like these are arranged in alphabetical order, with variants of the base weapon listed directly beneath. We need to be consistent. The Gunny  UserGunny chevrons 20:59, June 21, 2015 (UTC)

It's not about what I like. It's about consistency with the other pages like this. I have not problem if we're gonna list things by base damage or something, but that may make things harder to find in a long list. Alpha is used for that reason, and tables are sortable to find things by specific stats. I'll move them back. The Gunny  UserGunny chevrons 21:07, June 21, 2015 (UTC)
The infobox item and ibValue template are working properly since I fixed them earlier. The ibValue template, when nothing is parsed through the value parameters returns a "?". That's the way Theo or 69 or whoever wrote it made the template. They added a @hide function for cases like these. I suppose one of the templates was broken the whole time if there was nothing being returned with empty value parameters like on holodisk pages. As it stands, @hide is going to have to be added for the value parameter on those pages or I'll have to see if I remove the if/else return "?" for the else return leaves the parameter empty and the infobox won't parse the line. Your choice. Pick one. The Gunny  UserGunny chevrons 23:12, June 21, 2015 (UTC)

I created Howard and Nora because whichever one you don't play as becomes an NPC. We do see Nora's name during character creation, it's in the E3 showcase and the PC didn't get to pick it, Howard is just a placeholder until we find out his name. This is the exact way we did the Vault Dweller's personas, like Albert Cole. Paladin117>>iff bored; 15:16, June 22, 2015 (UTC)

Railway rifle Edit

What's your source for the armor piercing railway rifle? I have yet to see the card for one online. I had not added that weapon to the table because I was not certain of that it would be titled "armor piercing". The Gunny  UserGunny chevrons 16:39, June 28, 2015 (UTC)

Lol. So they ripped all the content from my sandbox, included something I haven't yet confirmed, and we put it on our page because they did? Trustworthy? We can do better than ripping unconfirmed content from The Vault. I've verified that every other weapon listed is at least in the game. I'm removing it until someone can verify it. There's one more, the laser musket, that I won't put there also, until I actually see the card for myself. As for the highlighting, we use highlighting to show unique weapons. There are no unique weapons in this game. You can get infinite copies of everything. I don't care how it "looks". I care about it being consistent with our other overviews. Highlight means unique. These aren't unique. The Gunny  UserGunny chevrons 16:52, June 28, 2015 (UTC)
This is why we don't rip content from people who steal our own. It's not even armor piercing, which I figured was probably the case. It's accelerated. I don't mind you changing the page structure so the images look like The Vault's but please stop mimicking what they do. I'll say it again: We're better than that. The Gunny  UserGunny chevrons 16:59, June 28, 2015 (UTC)
I also just realized that you copied the content of their legend section word for word with this edit: http://fallout.wikia.com/wiki/Fallout_Shelter_weapons?diff=2280001&oldid=2279855. We have enough of a problem with folks taking our content without attributing for us to do the same thing. I've changed the legend so that it is written in our own words and I'll have to ask you not to take content from there without attribution. I would prefer that we simply create our own content. I hear enough that we are a "shitty copy of The Vault". We don't need to prove those folks right by copying their content. The Gunny  UserGunny chevrons 17:53, June 28, 2015 (UTC)

Damnit J, We're supposed to have a Zero Tolerance policy to this shit. If I caught Eden or Lolguy pulling this shit, they'd be banned already. We're supposed to be better than that, and if they're stealing shit from gunny's sandbox then we're supposed to be better than them. What the fuck? Agent c (talk) 18:26, June 28, 2015 (UTC)

I can't relax on this one. Every time we catch Ant at it there's an outrage - I have admins and moderators who want to ban him from chat next time they seem him do it. If Tag steals, its one thing. When we steal back, our ability to deal with it is compromised. We are not a shitty copy of the vault, and we should be doing everything we can to ensure that stays the case.

RE: Wild Bill's Sidearm Edit

Regardless of how direct it may be, by policy a disambiguation is required. Furthermore, if one does not click one of the suggestions and merely searches "Wild Bill's Sidearm" or "Wild Bill's sidearm" for that matter, they are redirected only to the Fallout 3 article. As for the name, by all means let us fix the name to "Wild Bill's Sidearm" so that the capitalization is appropriate. Richie9999 (talk) 16:33, June 30, 2015 (UTC)

Whether or not it is clutter is irrelevant. Policy dictates that it remain "If a given term can refer to multiple articles (i.e. if it is "ambiguous"), the articles should be moved to non-ambiguous (or "disambiguated") titles. A disambiguation page, i.e. a page which links to all possible articles this term may refer to, should then be placed at the ambiguous title." - Fallout Wiki:Content organization guideline#Disambiguation. Until such a time as the policy is changed, the disambiguation page must remain. Richie9999 (talk) 16:48, June 30, 2015 (UTC)
Not going to get involved any further than this. I just feel it is relevant to point out that there is a difference between "...should..." and "...must..." 69.247.6.120 16:51, June 30, 2015 (UTC)
That's a nice little detail. That gives an escape. We really don't need three Wild Bill's Sidearms for a unique weapon. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 16:55, June 30, 2015 (UTC)

Plasma riflesEdit

I'm reverting the changes you made to the damage on the plasma rifles. The two legendary plasma rifles' damage as I had them listed is correct. I know this because I watched 1000s of lunchboxes open and actually saw the in-game cards. I would normally ask you where you got the source for the change, but I already know. You took this from The Vault, too. I saw these cards with my own eyes, and I know for a fact you did not, or you would not have made the change. The only place I've seen the damage listed incorrectly on these weapons is The Vault. I'm going to be very blunt here: Stop it. Just stop. Stop looking at The Vault's content and copying it over here when there's editors here doing this the right way, by doing the research on their own. Just that you would do this disappoints and concerns me greatly. I can't believe I have to go this far, but you can take this as an official warning. Do not take unverified content from there and post it here again. The Gunny  UserGunny chevrons 19:58, June 30, 2015 (UTC)

Given what's occurred over that last few days, and the fact that I have been pasting messages all over the place looking for the "missing weapon" I have listed at 17-21 damage, including on the sandbox where I've got all these stats, you'll have to forgive me for not believing that. I stand by my previous statement. The Gunny  UserGunny chevrons 20:21, June 30, 2015 (UTC)

Hi, Firelance.: if you are lucky and the Firelance ammo burst is close to the ground and overhead you might be able to see the ammo emerge from a tight cone shape of about 40 degrees from a central spot in the explosion, sometimes aimed downwards,This cone shape accounts for the ground scatter along with the high bounce from some of the cells and their ability to roll 100 yards or so down a slope.The greatest spread I have ever had was at a low spread site at 170 running paces from one end to the other. The tightest formation was when 22/24 ammo cells all fell inside the barn above Vault 101 along with the blaster which was hung up on the wall by the stairs.--1000HrsFallout3 (talk) 15:25, July 1, 2015 (UTC)

Dogmeat model reference Edit

I checked the search returns for Dogmeat and Dog, including the Dogmeat (Fallout 4) page before posting the note on the Dog (Fallout 4) page.

For info a search for 'Dogmeat' doesn't include the Dogmeat (Fallout 4) page.Lunamoonraker (talk) 21:18, July 2, 2015 (UTC)

I can;t see any page with the info posted. Hence the post Lunamoonraker (talk) 21:46, July 2, 2015 (UTC)

Redundant Categories Edit

To be clear, I don't entirely disagree with you on this issue. There are many marked locations that are not incorporated into subareas like towns or the Washington districts. These locations I am not removing. However, for articles like the Broadcast station there is a specific Radio locations category, this is visible on the main Fallout 3 Categories page, and as we polled in the forums the categories are primarily used for editing navigation purposes. Having to sort through 350+ articles on one page is nightmarish, and unwieldy, even more so on mobile. I will however refrain from removing further articles from the location categories for now, as I would like to discuss this further with other special rights holders, as I feel currently the FO3 and FNV locations categories are far more chaotic and unorganized than 1, 2, and tactics are and I want to discuss reorganizing the system of categorization for these games to make things more efficient and less unwieldy. ---bleep196- (talk) 17:46, July 3, 2015 (UTC)

Categories Edit

Well first, this is the policy that everyone agreed on. Second, when would this be an issue? If they're searching for Westside, they will just type it in the search function. If they're looking at all the towns, they will see it either way. More importantly, who uses the categories like that anyway? Paladin117>>iff bored; 16:02, July 11, 2015 (UTC)

What exactly makes you believe that users of the app navigate via categories and not, for example, overview pages and the search function? If people wish to view a list of all new vegas locations/towns we have a page for that. Secondly, regardless of what you personally voted for the community opted the this option, so this is the option that Paladin (and everyone else) should follow.

If you feel that way then you had the chance to make them aware of the consequences then. However, I believe that they were fully aware, and that they just don't have the same opinion as you. Regardless, we voted for what we voted for. We are a democracy and I do not agree with undermining people's votes with "you just don't understand". Please respect the community's choice.

Re: Re-categorization Edit

1) Where exactly did you get this 65% statistic from?

2) In what way does this re-categorization project complicate the process of finding information on the wiki for mobile users?

I handed the app off to my husband and asked him to find the Silver Rush. Within seconds he was able to navigate to the page using the following path. Fallout New Vegas -> Locations -> Silver Rush. Not once did he have to navigate through categories to get to the information that he wanted.

Now lets say that this has been simplified especially for the app shall we?

I did the same thing and handed him the mobile version of the site and instead asked him to get information on the 10mm pistol from Fallout 3. The following is how he navigated there: Fallout 3 -> Weapons -> 10mm pistol. Again, no need to navigate through categories to find it.

So please, tell me how this re-categorization project actually effects mobile users.

Shining-Armor (talk) 17:35, July 12, 2015 (UTC)

Mobile Users are actually 1/3 of the userbase. My source for this is User:JAlbor. Agent c (talk) 18:03, July 12, 2015 (UTC)
So roughly 33%, meaning you inflated the statistic roughly 200% to prove a point that was just disproven.
Nice.
Shining-Armor (talk) 18:11, July 12, 2015 (UTC)
Right now, it doesn't matter what those numbers are. I'll get the actual numbers from Wikia, hopefully including how much of the mobile userbase uses desktop mode to view pages, how many use the crappy app that only a few thousand have for this site (you know, the one that keeps crashing when I try to use it). Regardless of that, we have a policy in place that was just voted on by the community. Frankly I don't care if you don't like it or not. I don't care if you think the users are not intelligent enough to vote correctly (in your view). We follow the policy. You, personally, do not get to dictate to other users which policy they should and should not follow. I've told Paladin to feel free to make the edits he feels he needs to according to policy. The Gunny  UserGunny chevrons 18:24, July 12, 2015 (UTC)
1) If you are going to leave a message then leave a signature as well
2) It's 3 more click throughs in places that make sense. My husband, a person whom has no knowledge of the wiki or its app, found it right away using just the navigation.
But let's say they simply couldn't find it whether it was too deep or because they simply missed it when scrolling through the list. They could always just hit the little search button and find it within seconds which, unless you also have a statistic saying that users more often than not use the click throughs, is probably how someone would find a specific page.

RE:Weapons BackgroundsEdit

Okay, sorry didn't see this. I was told to do this by Gunny yesterday. OnionRings (talk) 14:30, July 17, 2015 (UTC)

I'm interested to hear your reasons to merge these weapons pages and stop filling out the content on them. Oh, and I'm also interested in hearing why your removed the content from them today.  The Gunny  UserGunny chevrons 20:09, July 17, 2015 (UTC)
Would it be okay with you if we reloaded the edits until this matter is settled, as their is currently a conflict of opinion on this matter? I am aware that Gunny is opposed to the consolidation of the pages and it would be more beneficial to have the information on the pages at the moment while the pages are unconsolidated than missing pertinent information that a visitor would be interested in until this matter has been resolved.OnionRings (talk) 18:37, July 18, 2015 (UTC)

2277 Edit

Pete Hines was asked on twitter when it takes place and he responded 200 years after the Great War, so 2277. [1] Paladin117>>iff bored; 22:35, July 24, 2015 (UTC)

Both Todd Howard and a character in-game give the 200 year stat, and when Pete Hines is asked if that is specific or not, he responds it's 200 years. That sounds very clear to me and it takes place shortly after Fallout 3, giving it a few months. Paladin117>>iff bored; 22:49, July 24, 2015 (UTC)
hey diggity dawg jspoil i dont mean to budge in dawgboi but if the dude says 200 years dawg then 200 years if jspoil. pete hines is a good man and he dont lie. are you accusing pete hines of lying? Detroit lions Hawk da Barber 2013 - BSHU Graduate 22:51, July 24, 2015 (UTC)

Your incompetence Edit

Dear Jspoel,

You sheer incompetence is quite alarming. You have been on this wiki for years now, from learning how to edit to adjusting to the role of being a brcat. Throughout this time you have hardly been able to do either well enough. While your edits are numerous and the numbers jump put at first glance will make others think you are some god when it comes to the craft known as editing. I am not denying you make the occasional good edit, but overall your edits are great for maintenance purposes, but the edit that requires a thought will always be out of your thinking capacity. I sincerely hope you can add legible content that can actually be read when Fallout 4 comes, if not the rest of us will have to go about fixing your mistakes. A good editor will know his limits and you do not. I've seen you going about trying to edit templates and all that good shit and fail time after time again. While others have to go back and fix your mistakes. Learn your boundaries, it effects the wiki's progress.

Your bcrat abilities are lacking as well. You do not have the communication and human interaction skills to be able to effectively do your job. To put it short, you can't interact with humans half the time if not all the time. You sure can type and look like you can communicate but you can't, and it is rather troublesome for someone who has a huge responsibility such as yourself. Furthermore, I suggest you take a step back and truly try to understand where I am coming from because you desperately need a slap in the face. You have this god complex bullshit that is rather annoying, thinking you know best. Your job is not to question others edits outright, for example Paladin's edit for the year when Fallout 4 takes place. Paladin had his shit sourced and yet you still questioned that. For that, I will tell you to fuck off. Your shit is getting on my nerves, and while I can't speak for everyone, I think you need to step down from being a bcrat, you can not do this job effectively now, and I will doubt your ability to improve once Fallout 4 comes.
Your #1 Fan, Detroit lions Hawk da Barber 2013 - BSHU Graduate 01:35, July 26, 2015 (UTC)
One last thing, I do not approve nor does anyone else approve of you taking and stealing content from the Vault and adding it here like your own, like you did with the plasma rifles. It's disgusting and you should feel bad about yourself for going out of the way to steal info for an edit whether it being correct or not. I hope you learn from your mistakes, because I dont want to have to go correct your fuck ups nor does anyone else, when Fallout 4 arrives. Detroit lions Hawk da Barber 2013 - BSHU Graduate 01:42, July 26, 2015 (UTC)

my appologies on the reposts. I am currently on my cell and didnt realise we already had them. I plan to put the non duplicate images in appropriate sections when i get home from work Lord Onions: Dat Onion Ring Luvin Fox! (Talk) 15:52, July 28, 2015 (UTC)

Fallout 4 skills Edit

Is recreating the Fallout 4 skills page a good idea? It now automatically appears on the Skill page, even though the game doesn't have skills. Paladin117>>iff bored; 15:35, July 28, 2015 (UTC)

Real worldEdit

I don't know if there is an official policy, but I would think it would be a good idea to include a small number of real world images to compare before:after to if there is a direct link.

I wouldnt allow the Landmark or the Stratosphere casinos on Lucky 38, but if there was a Saloon in Goodsprings, or a shot of the Washington Monument, then I think one, maybe two at most, images would be a good thing to have. Agent c (talk) 18:16, July 28, 2015 (UTC)
