Archive issues

Are you experience issues with the archive function too? --Skire (talk) 00:30, August 17, 2012 (UTC)

Why can't the template be fixed? Have you been doing it manually since your 10th archive? --Skire (talk) 00:36, August 17, 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, it's not too hard, I was just curious =) And by the way, do you think we should create a page for "Bittercup Runneth Over" (unmarked quest)? It's a quest like any other and deserves its own page rather than being redirected to the character around whom it is centred. --Skire (talk) 00:44, August 17, 2012 (UTC)
Alright I'll get working on the page. And thanks for the page, I didn't see that the first time around XD --Skire (talk) 01:07, August 17, 2012 (UTC)

Just FYI, the ArchiveTool bug has been fixed at The Vault almost a year ago. -- Porter21 (talk) 10:08, September 2, 2012 (UTC)

A thank you

Js, you definitely deserve this userbox. If it was not for you, this wiki would have died because of the split. I give you this because you are the most important user we have in here and I hope you're going to stay here for a long time, and we really need more people as dedicated as you are.
Pigeon approved!This user is very pigeon approved

Yup, pretty snazzy. I wish I could afford the luxury of buying all the add-ons for PC, but it's a bit pricey. I appreciate the time you took making the models; thanks buddy. --Kastera (talk) 03:30, August 17, 2012 (UTC)

Can you jump into chat again? I missed you last time. D: (Was distracted talking with Chad and Sigma through PM.) Dragon Leon Skål! 19:07, August 17, 2012 (UTC)

Hey, you (Garoux) said you were going to talk to Jspoel so you ended our PM! ;) --Skire (talk) 19:53, August 17, 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, that was the original plan. And right when I was sending a message to J, - Since he had gotten on during the time we were talking. - he decided to leave. :P Anyways, I'm back now, if you have the time to jump in again. Dragon Leon Skål! 20:20, August 17, 2012 (UTC)

Patroller Application

Hey Jspoel! I'd like to apply for the position of patroller and these are the reasons why...I've been active on this wiki for 3 months while the requirement is only 1, I have 300 edits on articles (the requirement is only 250), and I have a major contribution to the site as in creating and helping maintain the page Edward Rutledge on behalf of the Logical History project. I have a deep understanding of the notable loot guidelines, supported by many of my edits, and of assorted wiki guidelines like the capitalization policy. I also pride myself on almost always including an edit summary on any edit revisions, a quality even some admin's lack. And finally, one of my most frequented time slots (11PM-1AM EST) is often without users with rollback. Thanks for any consideration! USA Flag Pre-War User Avatar talk 19:37, August 17, 2012 (UTC)

Thank you so much! I won't let you down! USA Flag Pre-War User Avatar talk 19:50, August 17, 2012 (UTC)

Caravan guards.

Hi! I'm having trouble with this page Caravan guard (Fallout: New Vegas). There's 6 different NPCs by this name (look for 0015e48e in the GECK), and all of them have different stats. Stats which currently on the page is a mixture of Rose of Sharon Cassidy and some other unknown ingridients! So i can't decide, either place 6 sets of stats on the page either blank the infobox. Can i have your ruling on this? --Theodorico (talk) 01:56, August 18, 2012 (UTC)

I strongly encourage you not to read the following text as doing so may cause headache!

Unluckily, everything is much more complicated. "Real" NPC is the "LvlCrimsonCaravanGuard" (formid 0015e48a) which inherits all properties form it's Actor Base, which is LVLN "VarCrimsonCaravanGuard" (formid 0015e48e), which contains 6 possible candidates: "CrimsonCaravanGuardAAMTemplate" (000ed4d1), "CrimsonCaravanGuardAAF", ..., "CrimsonCaravanGuardHF". Short version: Real guards are being selected from the list and can be ANY of them, and "CrimsonCaravanGuardAAMTemplate" (000ed4d1) is only one of possibilities. --Theodorico (talk) 03:59, August 18, 2012 (UTC)

You know, something just clicked in my brain... think, i know how to visualise these "templated" npcs. I'll do some additional programming, to handle LVLN layer and will submit a full-scale specimen. --Theodorico (talk) 16:16, August 18, 2012 (UTC)

Traveling Merchants

Hey, J! Just wanted to let you know that you can find that information properly mentioned here. Dragon Leon Skål! 20:34, August 18, 2012 (UTC)

Saintpain

Its actually his 4th (valid) chatban. The user rights log shows chatbans in July 2011, September 2011, and March 2012. He has been getting the benefit of the doubt a lot too as I'm never quite sure what it is he's trying to say. Agent c (talk) 21:04, August 18, 2012 (UTC)

Hey J, with Saint, we gave him multiple chances to correct his attitude and behavior in chat. Mods constantly let him slip away with stuff he shouldn't, as we give him the benefit of the doubt. As for today, he crossed the line refusing to end a dispute between him and a few others about his behavior, and ultimately he didn't so he was banned. Detroit lions Hawk da Barber 2012 - BSHU Graduate 21:08, August 18, 2012 (UTC)
Before this gets out of hand, why don't we present chat logs so we can all see for ourselves? An indefinite chat ban is a very serious matter and should be issued with only the utmost certainty that it is necessary. --Skire (talk) 21:11, August 18, 2012 (UTC)
If I may add my side, there were five of us that talked over this ban and decided it was necessary. Those people being Agent c, Dragonborn96, ToCxHawK, and RamboRob. All of us determined that the ban was just. As for an infinite ban, it was made infinite because this was his fourth offense. VictorFaceMonitor Victor the Insane Cowboy Robot 21:25, August 18, 2012 (UTC)

Log of today's kick by me, and the decision to upgrade to a ban. Agent c (talk)
If i may, i also agree what Pain did was wrong and he deserves the perma-chat-ban. User:Dead Gunner

J and I are reading the logs now, so enough of this argumentum ad populum please. --Skire (talk) 21:50, August 18, 2012 (UTC)
At the risk of sounding rude, it's not really your place to make such bold statements, Dead Gunner. Leave the personal opinions to yourself, before they exasperate things. Dragon Leon Skål! 21:54, August 18, 2012 (UTC)
As its Vic's ban, its not my call... But he does get an awful lot of chances as it is. Agent c (talk) 22:01, August 18, 2012 (UTC)
Personally, I don't believe exceptions should be made just because we like certain people's contributions. And on the same subject as that, a chat ban doesn't involve his editing contributions in the slightest. He can still contribute to the main wiki if he so chooses, this ban has no bearing on edits. VictorFaceMonitor Victor the Insane Cowboy Robot 22:15, August 18, 2012 (UTC)

(Js, I had the chat window open all day, so I was able to go back and read everything that happened regarding this situation. I'd like to offer my comments:

  1. Vic's initial kick for spamming song lyrics was correct in my view. He has been warned about this very thing in the past (I recall "in the ghetto" being the lyric).
  2. The 2nd kick was a moderator's judgement call. I would agree that he had been testing the mods' patience all day. My position would be to back the moderator on the spot's decision.
  3. Upgrading to a ban based on the two incidences is also a moderator's judgement call. Again, I'll defer to the guys on the spot. He had been a problem more than once during the day.

As for the length of the ban, let me list all of his chat bans:

  1. 18:15, 13 July 2011 An unknown anonymous user (Talk | block) changed group membership for User:SaintPain from (none) to Banned from chat (Kick/banned from the chat for this wiki by GhostAvatar. Please contact them for more info.) Served 1 day.
  2. 00:53, 29 September 2011 An unknown anonymous user (Talk | block) changed group membership for User:SaintPain from (none) to Banned from chat (Kick/banned from the chat for this wiki by Cartman!. Please contact them for more info.) Served 8 hours.
  3. 10:48, 16 March 2012 Agent c (Talk | contribs | block) changed group membership for User:SaintPain from (none) to Banned from chat (Kick/banned from the chat for this wiki by Agent c. Please contact them for more info.) Served 3 weeks.
  4. 22:38, 26 June 2012 GhostAvatarBot (Talk | contribs | block) banned SaintPain (Talk | contribs | block) from chat with an expiry time of 1 day, ends 22:38, 27 June 2012 (Misbehaving in chat) Served 1 day.
  5. 23:12, 16 August 2012 Agent c (Talk | contribs | block) banned SaintPain (Talk | contribs | block) from chat with an expiry time of 1 week, ends 23:12, 23 August 2012 (Misbehaving in chat) Agent c reconsidered and removed the ban.
  6. 16:34, 18 August 2012 Victor the Securitron (Talk | contribs | block) banned SaintPain (Talk | contribs | block) from chat with an expiry time of infinite, ends 15:34, 20 December 3011 (multiple violations, mostly rules 1, 7, 8, 9 and 10.)

So, as far as I can tell, SaintPain has been banned from chat a total of 6 times. He served, 1 day, 8 hours, 3 weeks, 1 day, none and now infinite. I guess the mods/admins who banned him decided to use their judgement and went against recommended policy in all cases. Were policy followed to the letter, Ghost's ban in June would have been his 4th, and therefore infinite, ban. It seems to me the entire admin/mod team has been giving Saint the benefit of the doubt for quite some time. His record stands for itself, but my question is how much more leeway should any user be given? I agree that an indefinite ban is drastic, so I'm open to using our judgement on this, but that begs the questions of does SaintPain derserve it, and also what kind of precedent does this set for future bans on other users. Discipline should be fair AND consistent. I'm sure we'll all defer to you, Clyde's and Ghost's judgement on this. I just wanted to make sure you had all the pertinent facts. The Gunny  380px-USMC-E7 svg 02:25, August 19, 2012 (UTC)

All the bans were for cause. I was there for the last 3 and I checked the others before added them to the list. He was also warned twice, once by Ghost and again by Chad just the other day, that the next one would be infinite. The Gunny  380px-USMC-E7 svg 03:14, August 19, 2012 (UTC)

Solution

I went ahead and removed that note from the Wolfhorn Ranch article page, and I re-wrote, and then moved it to its proper page under the Fallout: New Vegas random encounters article page. I hope these actions of mine are to your liking. The information is also still mentioned on the traveling merchants article page. Dragon Leon Skål! 22:06, August 18, 2012 (UTC)

Yeah, I can understand that. Sometimes, these notes really bother me, though. For instance, in this case, that overpass is closer to Novac, instead of the Wolfhorn Ranch. Glad you approve though. Looking at the random encounters article page, it looks like it's missing a lot of content. I'm going to have to sit down and see about writing in some more. (Too bad they're not as many or as awesome as the ones in Fallout 3.) Dragon Leon Skål! 22:23, August 18, 2012 (UTC)

Leveled characters

Well i managed to slap something together.User:Theodorico/sandbox05 Please let me know, what are you thinking about this. --Theodorico (talk) 00:24, August 19, 2012 (UTC)

Hi! I've updated my sandbox User:Theodorico/sandbox05 . Can i go with the min-max notation, or maybe you have something better on your mind? --Theodorico (talk) 19:52, August 19, 2012 (UTC)
I think, that the best way will be to make a guide or a policy on how to handle a leveled characters. Clearly, we don't want to put 18 photos/stats/skills/inventories on a page! So we must find a way, to provide useful information, without littering pages. And i'm not completely happy with my own approach - min-max ranges,as this could lead to a meaningless values like 1-10 ST or Guns 20-100... Maybe this means some kind of overhaul, i dont know as i'm very new to wiki editing (i've dropped my jaw seeing how you moved the caravan guard page). Ok, i'll contact Ghost Avatar about this matter. Meanwhile, maybe you can use your immense wiki knowledge, to find a way, how to put such inhomogeneous information in it (forget about the numbers, i'll take care of them). --Theodorico (talk) 21:59, August 19, 2012 (UTC)
Damn! Why exactly we don't want a page with 18 photos?! Maybe we are! A separate page, exclusively dedicated to the appearances of a character, with a table containing all photos, stats, levels, e.t.c.... I'll make a draft! --Theodorico (talk) 22:32, August 19, 2012 (UTC)

Pigeon image

Yeah, it kind of got out of hand. Sigma asked me to change the name to User_Denis517, but didn't know how. Then I just added a copy with a different name, and then it got deleted for some reason, so I made another. Anyway, I'll use the image.

Sugar Bombs

Why do people even bother vandalization like this? Whats the point? They should know by now it wont stay up, people watch this wiki like hawks. Is there some sort of sick kick they get from throwing the word "poop" in a couple random places? Its so pointlessly idiotic. Sorry about all this just needed to rant to someone about it. TheShotgunShogun (talk) 19:36, August 22, 2012 (UTC)

I know I make it a point to watch those recent edits, and I don't spend nearly as much time here as many people do, patrolling for these vandals. It just seems as though they're working against such insurmountable odds, its pointless to try, yet they still do. *sigh* TheShotgunShogun (talk) 02:12, August 23, 2012 (UTC)

Older unique weapons

No problem. I remember when we did the categories for them there weren't too many, but that'll just make adding the pages even easier. I'll look into it tonight. The Gunny  380px-USMC-E7 svg 19:43, August 22, 2012 (UTC)

User rights

I was just wondering if I could ask you something. While I know it's possible to do, has anyone actually gone straight from a patroller to an administrator? I don't plan on applying, especially not any time soon, but I'm not really into the chat, so I don't think I'll be that useful as a moderator.

Oh, and while I'm here, can you block 92.251.250.168 for this vandalism? Paladin117>>iff bored; 00:44, August 23, 2012 (UTC)

That's really good advice, thanks. Paladin117>>iff bored; 01:34, August 23, 2012 (UTC)

Yo, Js. Is it possible if you can restore [[File:Yes-Man SantaClara.png]] for me? I was actually using it for Agent c's "Apprentice" competition. You must have deleted it by accident. Thanks. Yes Man defaultUser Avatar talk 07:15, August 23, 2012 (UTC)

File name

Hi J =) Can I ask why you deleted my move of Denis' signature image to "File:User_Denis517.png" instead of "File:Pigeon Approved!.png" which is directly contrary to long-standing policy? --Skire (talk) 17:04, August 23, 2012 (UTC)

Apprentice 2

Hi J,

Apprentice Week 2's entries are collected here. If you want to leave your thoughts and discretely pass me your rankings (not sure how late I'll be in chat, but I plan to leave it open to take PMs, or you can email me if you still have my address) I'll get the next blog up. Thanks again for being a part of it. Agent c (talk) 23:42, August 23, 2012 (UTC)

Hey J, have you had a chance to rank the entries yet? George/Lizzunchbox is joining us and I'm just waiting on your part, alternatively if you want to skip this time, thats cool. Thanks Agent c (talk) 16:34, August 25, 2012 (UTC)

WRK

Hi J. Could you confirm in the GECK the amount of fixed locations for weapon repair kits? It seems the ignorance is taking a toll as they are being removed from pages. Thanks a lot =) --Skire (talk) 13:47, August 24, 2012 (UTC)

As far as I remember, they are actually not that common to be found on vendors, but their parts may be (especially with Vendortron). And if the FO3 bottlecap mine is on the list, then I think this one would be fitting too. --Skire (talk) 16:22, August 24, 2012 (UTC)

Temporary Insanity

Thanks for catching that. Must have had a brain fart, as I was thinking that the image looked like a custom job. Completely forgot that I had been editing an article page for a weapon modification, so I didn't even check if it was just highlighting certain parts to make the mods stand out. Don't worry though, now that I know the deal, I rather like the images used. :) Dragon Leon Skål! 15:36, August 24, 2012 (UTC)

Templates

Surprisingly enough, this is all just to make an extended nav-box available here at Nukapedia. As for the red links, I am systematically going to go through them once I've added everything needed. I won't create any extra work for you. :) Dragon Leon Skål! 00:01, August 25, 2012 (UTC)

Done. There should no longer be any red links concerning the templates and custom CSS that I just added. Dragon Leon Skål! 00:07, August 25, 2012 (UTC)
Can you link me to an example? I'm looking through maintenance, and everything seems to be checking out for me. (There does seem to be a weird glitch though. One of the re-direct links is showing up as a red-link, yet clicking it still takes you to the proper page.) Dragon Leon Skål! 00:18, August 25, 2012 (UTC)
How odd. Maybe you need to preform a hard refresh upon your internet browser. I know IE tends to be a little... slow with certain matters. Anyways, I created the categories necessary, and they are all showing up as proper links. No red-links on my end. Dragon Leon Skål! 00:35, August 25, 2012 (UTC)
Untitled

I feel like an idiot. Please accept my apologies, and I will move to rectifying these issues now. Dragon Leon Skål! 01:13, August 25, 2012 (UTC)

I felt like they needed their own categories, since they were copied straight from the Templates Wiki. If you feel otherwise, I will merge them with other existing category listings. Dragon Leon Skål! 01:35, August 25, 2012 (UTC)

categories

Alright, I'm done. I went ahead and merged all of those templates into their proper category, and deleted the unnecessary ones. Dragon Leon Skål! 21:24, August 25, 2012 (UTC)

Crazy sam10

Hi J. I'm calling for the direct removal of all extra user rights from User:Crazy sam10. What he did in and to the wiki's chat today is inexcusable behaviour from an administrator, active or not. The Gunny should be around to deliver chat logs and you can see he disabled chat here. What he said before that in chat, which consisted of complaining about the wiki's problems, bad-mouthing the chat, and expressively showing resent for the wiki as well as its chat, is utterly ridiculous, especially to come from an admin. There were many of us in chat to witness this, as well a fellow administrator. I look forward to your response. --Skire (talk) 23:08, August 26, 2012 (UTC)

I concurr with this. The actions I saw today are not worthy of an Administrator. I have a log available if you need it. Agent c (talk) 23:16, August 26, 2012 (UTC)
Emailed over. Agent c (talk) 23:22, August 26, 2012 (UTC)
Looks like they beat me to messaging you. I agree with this completely. After looking through the logs, I have come to the conclusion that he is not in the position to possess any extra tools here. I also left him with a 2-week block, in response to him disabling the chat feature in spite. Dragon Leon Skål! 23:24, August 26, 2012 (UTC)

He has no visible intention of using his rights to benefit the wiki and the only thing he did with them is prevent his expulsion from chat and later disable the chat. So I will be making a reconfirmation request right now, but thanks for looking into it J =) --Skire (talk) 01:21, August 27, 2012 (UTC)

Re-categorization (Humans)

Hi, Jspoelstra! I'm ready to start with humans. "Dry" test looks exactly as it should (let me know, if you want to see the log). Just a last minute check - right now i'm using only: 'Category:Fallout human characters', 'Category:Fallout 2 human characters', 'Category:Fallout 3 human characters', 'Category:Fallout: New Vegas human characters'. So, if everything is OK, just let me know and i'll press enter. --Theodorico (talk) 22:00, August 29, 2012 (UTC)

Hi J! I know you're busy but could you make time to work on the notable loot project? Currently many peer reviews are needed and would be deeply appreciated. Thanks =) --Skire (talk) 01:29, August 31, 2012 (UTC)

You definitely should! You deserve some free time after all of the work you've put into this wiki. You'll have to let me know if it's any good. I've seen videos of the original XCOM, but I've never actually gotten around to trying it out. Back in those days, I was too busy playing Total Annihilation and the original two Warcrafts. xD As for the Featured Media page, I've gone ahead and deleted both pages off of this wiki. I found another option that fits my needs a lot more perfectly. I also went ahead and deleted you link off my page, since it was a red-link.

Heading there now to check it out! It seems like my kind of game. I've always had a special love for old timey strategy games like that. If you like XCOM, you should try another older game that I grew up with called Deadlocked.


Can you come into chat? A friend and I have been working on a lot of artsy-fartsy stuff like concept art for my shop and a few background images just for the hell of it. Because of this, there's an idea I want to run by you real quick. I know this sort of thing isn't really in your alley, but I always like to get your input first.


TL GECK
Another great image. O:

Me and Therese both have been working hard these past couple of days, and we've managed to push up some really great ideas. I'm especially happy with the banner we created. Here are the two examples that currently speak out to me the most at the moment:
Nukapedia Background Leon-2
Nukapedia Background Leon-1

Please let me know what you think so far!
I'm really happy to hear you saying you like our work so far! As for further examples, I would love to provide them for you. However, I don't think it's possible to do so using the theme designer tool. I can use the div statement to create custom backgrounds for individual pages, but I don't currently know of any way to do the same with the banner. So what I might do is create a designer wiki, and I'll just merge some templates from here to over there. I don't mind doing this, but it will take a little time. If you know of any better way to do this, make sure to let me know!

Re-categorization (Humans) #2

Hi! I've finished the first pass. There are 762 pages left, so i'm planning to make additional pass with Category:Fallout Tactics human characters and Category:Van Buren human characters, before making an overview. --Theodorico (talk) 19:55, August 31, 2012 (UTC)

Relaxing like a champ

Don't worry, I have everything prioritized. :) I'm taking shifts working on this, and working on a special edition of the Moose for the Fallout anniversary. I'll also be adding in this flow chat project that's about to start up. (Excited) It's not really putting any sort of strain on me. Ever since I got back from Norway, I've been living the easy life, for the most part. (That is, until I start my new job next Friday.) So really, I'm happy I have a hobby to keep me busy until I can get my goals set back on track. ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 01:27, September 2, 2012 (UTC)

Best person to ask would be Gunny, seeing as in how he's spearheading this entire project with work on how the flowcharts are going to be laid out. All I really know is that this project is to clean up our walkthrough pages by replacing our detailed walkthroughs with flowcharts. (While leaving the shorter versions untouched, I believe.) ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 01:33, September 2, 2012 (UTC)

RE: Walkthrough Chart Project

Hey Js, just getting back to you. The project is being handled by Victor the Securitron, I do not think I'll be involved. He is waiting for the go-ahead by Clyde, but he has everything worked out I think. I made the project banner because he was unsure of how to make it and I was bored :P - CC 4 Star Dragon Ball Edit 01:35, September 2, 2012 (UTC)

Walkthroughs with chart template

Howdy, Js. I've been working on using the {{Chart}} template to create a visual quick walkthrough for quests. I think i have it nailed down how to use it. Victor has been kicking around the idea of a project to use the chart template to replace the bullet list quick walkthrough sections. I've got a few worked up in my sandbox for you to check out. I like how it's working out, so far. Leon, myself, Vic and maybe a few others are willing to commit to a project to add this, if it's alright with the BCs. Take a look and let me know what you think. The Gunny  380px-USMC-E7 svg 16:17, September 2, 2012 (UTC)

I'll move all the color styling to the main .css to ease some of the edit load. It'll only take a small change to the template itself to include .css classes. I'll keep perfecting it and when it's ready to go, I'll let you know. The Gunny  380px-USMC-E7 svg 16:34, September 2, 2012 (UTC)

Hey J,

Was wondering if you know if there's a specific log that covers achievement badges being awarded. Just hit 1000 article edits (Yeah, Yeah, I know, should have done that ages ago) and it occured to me this might be something good to celebrate in the news.

Stub Project

Just wanted to let you know that I've officially finished up with the Fallout: New Vegas stub pages. I will start finishing the Fallout 3 stubs shortly. ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 01:14, September 3, 2012 (UTC)

I am now done with the Fallout 3 stubs. I will begin work on the real world stubs in a moment. ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 01:22, September 3, 2012 (UTC)
I made the assumption that it was a cut item, seeing as in how I've never seen that item once during my multiple playthoughs. (Nor have I seen anything that requires its use.) Can you please find out what that item references to through the G.E.C.K.? ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 01:25, September 3, 2012 (UTC)
I would be... uncomfortable with going through the Fallout 1/2 stub pages. I fix whatever mistakes I find on those pages already, but I've only played through 2 once, and I still haven't finished the first Fallout 100%. So systematically going through them with the intent of re-writing them enough to remove stubs would more than like result in many mistakes on my end. I want to tackle the RWS's, because that seems to be the heaviest area that needs work, and it's quite simple. I can run their name through a universal chart, and I can find out all of the information I can. If there is no information available, then it's as simple as just removing the stub after listing the work they did to create the game in question.

Ok. I'm checking the changes for any new/changed parameters and whether a bot is needed for each of the new templates. I'll do the easy ones first, the ones that won't need bot work. I've got some stuff to do this afternoon, but I'll get back on it later this evening. The Gunny  380px-USMC-E7 svg 17:27, September 3, 2012 (UTC)
Ok. The first template {{Infobox addiction}} is over. Everything looks ok. There's 16 pages that link to it that need to have the parameters changed. You can find a list of the changed parameters at User:The_Gunny/sandbox3#Infoboxes_needing_conversion, and I already changed Jet addiction. I've got to mow the lawn, then I'll get on with the rest. The Gunny  380px-USMC-E7 svg 22:00, September 3, 2012 (UTC)
I'll bring over reputation next (22 articles) then stat (66 articles), we'll definitely need a bot for trait (103 articles0 and perk (111 articels when Porter get it done). The Gunny  380px-USMC-E7 svg 23:48, September 3, 2012 (UTC)

Table

Hello! I made a new (and complete) table for the Fallout Wiki:File maintenance project. Don't know if it's needed, but i did it anyway, because i wanted, to practice with image pages. So, can i place it on the project's page? --Theodorico (talk) 22:33, September 3, 2012 (UTC)

Yes, i sent my bot to list all images. I can list Category:Fallout:_New_Vegas_character_images also. But there are 693 images... i don't know if this will be any help from such a long table? --Theodorico (talk) 23:07, September 3, 2012 (UTC)

Sierra Madre

Those locations I removed were part of the Villa. They are listed in the Villa section, it would be redundant to include them all in the main Sierra Madre page, where only villa and casino is listed. Eddo36 (talk) 22:59, September 3, 2012 (UTC)

If you look here, Villa#Background it says they are all part of the Villa. Eddo36 (talk) 00:16, September 4, 2012 (UTC)
Just do a playthrough of DM and check the dialogue. I do think there are only two parts to Sierra Madre- the casino and everything outside is the Villa. But I can't recall everything. Eddo36 (talk) 06:44, September 4, 2012 (UTC)

Infoboxes.

I'm on it. And i checked Porter's bot here at Nukapedia. The task is to deconstruct the existing infobox and reconstruct it according to the new template. Absolutely doable. My only requirement is the documentation on both the old and the new template. Let's just take a slow pace and do things, one by one. Where i should start? --Theodorico (talk) 00:57, September 4, 2012 (UTC)

Hi! I can't see no issues with splitting perk/trait pages. This is an independable process and it can be done either before or after updating. Only way to get interference between them is to conduct them simultaneously.

Bot status update: Principal parts are done, i should be able to run tests in couple of hours. --Theodorico (talk) 18:54, September 4, 2012 (UTC)

Yes I had a good time, got to relax a bit before school starts (Thursday). Thanks! But there's something weird about the archive function I just noticed: It's not showing up on my drop-down menu at the top. Could there be an alternative? --Skire (talk) 15:23, September 4, 2012 (UTC)

Next infobox

I've got Infobox trait exported. Let me know when you're ready for me to import it. Porter also just finished Infobox perk, so we can set up the bot for that once I look at the changed parameters. I'll do that while I wait the word from you and Theo. The Gunny  380px-USMC-E7 svg 19:48, September 4, 2012 (UTC)

Please see my comment at User_talk:The_Gunny#Botwork Esp. the icon part. --Theodorico (talk) 20:10, September 4, 2012 (UTC)

The new infobox has an icon over the image (presumably). --Theodorico (talk) 20:18, September 4, 2012 (UTC)

Got it! I have two solutions for this: get rid of "image" parameter entirely or blank value only. What do you prefer? --Theodorico (talk) 21:21, September 4, 2012 (UTC)
Done with empty images. Ok, if no one have, more important thing to do, i'll prepare my bot for Infobox perk. So, we can complete updating today. Should be ready within an hour. --Theodorico (talk) 21:54, September 4, 2012 (UTC)

Whether or not he is adding good content is irrelevant. Making this many edits on a single page is extremely unnecessary, and I have given him slack. I believe he's been asked 4 times now. The problem is he's editing every page one section at a time, changing one or two things, publishing, and then repeating the process. It's great that he's adding content, but he needs to just use the "edit" button when changing more than one thing like the rest of us do. ~ Toci ~ Go ahead, make my day. 22:14, September 6, 2012 (UTC)

Hey J, thanks for the congrats on 7k edits... Feels a bit hollow as only 1k are article edits, but I'm hoping to bring those up a bit when I try and avoid styuding for an exam in a few weeks.

Was wondering if I could get your throughts on this situation with Eden2012. Basically he had a rather contraversial blog he felt was getting a bit derailed, so he disabled the comments. Sigma and Leon have taken exception to this as being disruptive and censoring the community, however I feel that as its in "his" space its completely up to him, and if someone wants to respond to a locked blog, they can always create a blog of their own. Bans have been threatened over this (and to be fair, Eden's responses aren't helping matters, but I can't spot a rule saying someone can't block comments on their own blog, and (pre blog feature) rules suggesting that they can if they choose, and its their choice.

RE: Chart Project

After some discussion with Gunny, we both agreed it would be best to do it one game at a time. Fallout 3's project will come when NV's is done. We did this for three reasons. The first, to contribute the most to the most recent, and more than likely most played game (which of course would make it the most researched by players looking for quest help), and secondly, to prevent all the new projects from cluttering the already ample active project list. Lastly, we wanted the editing contributors to the project to all focus on the same goal, rather than having multiple goals at once and making the individual projects move slower.

Either remove this quote from the heading page or add the above decision by congress in 1988 which counters the first commnent.
