Replacement for Polls Edit
Hey Leea, I feel too busy with my studies and so I'm quitting as poll person. Since you seem to have given me a kajillion suggestions, I thought you might be interested in the position. Tell me what you think.
We would miss Brother Fox but such a lady of imagination would serve us well !
SaintPain→ Here to help." 01:23, October 10, 2014 (UTC)
Don't worry, I'll send any codes when it's time. No, I'm not joking, but I'm not quitting at exactly next week, I'm waiting until the 8th of November because then I will have been poll person for a whole year! I just thought I'd get another candidate in the running so it's not short notice. So I have what, 4 more editions left? The reason I'm quitting is because I'm starting to get very busy with my studies at 6th Form (last year of High School more or less) and soon I will have to go.
I've picked Jasper for the position now of course, you will always still be able to give suggestions. c:
Sorry about the polls Edit
Is this why you have been away from online the last few days ? ~ I know you took a trip but that is not the same.
- All we can do is try to roll with the changes ~ I have no idea why fox wants to any quit.
- I liked all the poll ideas you suggested ~ He must just have other obligations.
- I am sorry I can't help ~ My last chat ban soured my taste for any politics here. I still love the site & most folks here.
I wish I could be more help but if I got involved it would reflect badly on you.
Unless they changed the rules again ~ I think you can still post your own blog polls & I would vote on them.
- Keep your chin up ~ We all get hard knocks ~ Drive on Mz Kishori!

Poll present Edit
Your efforts and diligence have not gone unnoticed, and you have been given a small token of appreciation.
P.S. I'm sorry for playing you over in regards to the new Poll position, I should have thought good about it first before making a decision.
I do plan on using that picture I made yes. I also plan on doing a video introduction of myself addressing the audience. I've asked a hardcore question already by the way, but I will use your music one.
Why did you undo the edit on the crashed airliner page? That was a good edit. Must have been the likely part. If you check the Transport plane page, you can see the crashed plane in the gallery. And in the GECK it matches exactly the ones in Camp McCarran. It's hard enough to get editors, don't discourage people who make an honest attempt. Jspoel 22:41, October 31, 2014 (UTC)
RE: Being lonely Edit
I'm sorry about that, that sounds tough. One of your solutions might be to perhaps move somewhere else. Do you have a job which can support yourself? Otherwise, maybe you could once in a while take a trip out of your town and visit somewhere else and see new people.
Bioshock 2 Edit
Well, I've completed Bioshock 2 a few days ago and it was really good. The gameplay was better than the first, but I just thought the story and characters weren't as strong as the first one. I did love Eleanor though:
"Love is just a chemical. We give it meaning by choice"
When Eleanor comes into the game in the last level or so, things get brilliant with the bond she shares with Delta. And I will say that the Neutral ending (where Delta sacrifices himself) was one of the most beautiful endings I've seen in a game before. I did get the Good ending on my first play through, but I watched the Neutral one on Youtube and thought it was far better with its emotion and redemption of Delta and Eleanor. Choosing to die rather than let her become corrupted like him, it brought me close to tears.
Ah, I'm not even talking about the Bad ending. The Neutral Sacrifice (Sophia lives in this one) ending where Eleanor gives you a choice was just beautiful and more realistic, as Delta and Eleanor are both imperfect and from Delta sacrificing himself he gives Eleanor the free will to make her own choices and fate. Delta chooses to die rather than let his darkness corrupt her. Much better than the "Pure Good" ending in my view which felt too sappy.
Sophia was kind of meh to me. Having a lunatic as your main antagonist took away any kind of emotional attachment I might have had with the story. Ryan was extreme, but he was a villain who I could sympathise with. Ultimately, he was just human and that was why he screwed up. He couldn't kill his own son and decided to choose his death. Truly an awesome and memorable character/antagonist. Although I do admit that the final battle was better than the end boss of Fontaine in the first game which I felt ruined the atmosphere and the story as the first Bioshock didn't need an end boss.
I just plain didn't like Sophia. She felt like a self-inserted character at the last minute. She's made out to be very important in the game from audio journals you find and posters yet there was no reference at all of her in the first game. Her goal wasn't noble at all, she was just bat-shit crazy. She wanted to create some non-sentient creature born from all the minds in Rapture, except she never thought that such a mindless being is no better than a robot. She also failed to think of whether the being might kill her if it determines her be evil or something. How does any such thing help anyone? Her plan had more holes than a colander.
I did play Minerva's Den actually, as I like achievements. It was a nice self-contained story with a good twist and tied off the Rapture story of the series quite nicely. I wouldn't bother with the Protector Trials, which was pretty much just try and get a high score. Such a mode could have been made an unlockable in the main game when you complete rather than a cost of £3/$5.
It was cool playing as a Little Sister near the end, it allowed you to see the world as they see it, which was quite unsettling as it looks all sunshine and rainbows to them, with the short glimpses of what it really looks like when you're harvesting ADAM.
Veteran's Day present Edit
Very nice dear heart ~ Is that the sun rise of a Zombie dawn or Happy sun set ?

Polls for meEdit
Looking forward to you flooding my talk page actually. Would be pretty hard to come up with enough polls on my own. Two really good suggestions this week, I'll take a look at slotting one or both in now (maybe save one for a latter week).
Thanks for the suggestions.

Add it as a note to the behind the scenes section with a reference to the booklet. You can add as support that the GECK ID also indicates the change of name, where its editor ID is WhiteHorsenettleBerry. Jspoel 14:35, November 16, 2014 (UTC)
- You can see a few examples at the bottom of the Caesar page. The text of these references is found somewhere on the page. Search for <ref> and you can see how it works. Jspoel 23:53, November 17, 2014 (UTC)

Templates on the FEAR wikiEdit
I think I may have fixed it. It was doubled because Video and 250px was used in the template as well as in the article itself. I still had to change Video: into File: though in the template, otherwise it doesn't recognize the video. So just use the name of the file in the article, and leave the File and 250px out. (Replacing the video still doesn't work properly but at least you've the major problem solved.) Jspoel 16:32, November 26, 2014 (UTC)
- I'm not sure what you mean. I checked a dozen pages linking to the walkthrough template and they are all fine. (Almost) all pages are good and don't have the File and 250px on the Video parameter line. Someone did it right for those and you just went wrong with these 5 pages I just fixed. Jspoel 23:13, November 26, 2014 (UTC)
- Nothing weird. I think my change to the Video Walkthrough template from Video to File changed everything again today for the better. Jspoel 23:44, November 26, 2014 (UTC)
Don't worry about it, I can cover myself for a week or two :P And real life stuff comes first, anyway.
Nice suggestion anyway, I'll add it now.
Jasper: The Wonder that is Shroomman! 19:13, November 28, 2014 (UTC)

Never fear Edit
I do miss you dear heart. I mean that.
This endless waiting for a new Fallout just got tedious, life dose get in the way & then there is the temptation of new games..
- I really hope the next Fallout has co op play.
After all the hours I played, wrote about & graphic designed for the subject of the Fallout games & this community, none could say I do not care.
- I have not " moved on ~ I am just waiting ".
I never wanted to be a patroler, mod or any type of admin here. I enjoyed adding what I could to the wiki & should the next Fallout ever bless us with it's glow I am sure I will be here more.

As a reputable member who has been active in recent months, would you be interested in accepting a seat on the 2014 Nukapedian of the Year board? We will meet twice: once to add two more nominees to the top 4, and another time to decide the final winner(s). Times are TBD. Please let me know via TP. --Skire (talk) 20:11, December 18, 2014 (UTC)
- Will do. We meet at the Chinese FO Wiki chat (where I am b-crat rights). Welcome aboard! --Skire (talk) 23:27, December 19, 2014 (UTC)
Re: Glad to hear from you! Edit
Always good to hear from you to.
Fallout "Mostly 3" is always a feature in my dreams. I am surely bound for "Video game" Hell ~ At least I know I'll meet creative tormentors ~;P
I do try to check in but some days I'm so sad to see this place go so quiet it effects my condition & so it is just best I take small doses of this silence until the next Fallout game comes out & then I will have happy news & active constitutive experience to share.
Most of all " I hope the next Fallout game is co op. For me a game with good graphics & co op trumps any story line.
- The best games time is the time that can be actively shared.
What days & hours are you mostly on here these days ? Maybe we could text live on chat. It is not as good as co op play but it is better than tag messaging "IMO".
Be well & I hope to message with you again soon. ~<B

Hi Leea. Please give me your preference for when the meeting should take place (keep in mind it will have to be over the next few days). Go ahead and post on my TP. --Skire (talk) 01:54, December 22, 2014 (UTC) Can you make time for 12 AM on December 27 UTC (7 PM December 26 for EST)? If you aren't available, don't worry.

Dear Mz Kishori
You mean so much to this community that I like wise care for.
I aim to make you an offer STILL, I must make it clear that I in no way wish to take you away from our fine Fallout fellows, but if you could also find the time to game with me & my friends on Steam ~ Mostly Saints Row ~ I would love to gift you Saints Row 3 & all the DLCs so we could game together & live game chat.
All you need to do is make an account, tell me your user name there & I will buy you the game & it's DLCs.
Happy Holidays SaintPain→ Here to help."
Merry Christmas and a happy new yearEdit
I would like to use the Christmas-wishes-tradition to thank those around me who kept this wiki and daily life more fun for me during the past year. Everything just seems so normal and evident that we are here almost every day, yet it's very worthwhile to consider for a moment how wonderful it is to have all of you around me, making editing and being on chat a lot more enjoyable. I would also like to use this opportunity to wish a happy and healthy new year for you and everyone around you, with perseverance in tough times, but most of all, with wonderful moments among enjoyable friends and family. Merry Christmas, and a very happy new year in which all your wishes may come true! - Greets Peace'n Hugs (talk) (blog) 17:52, December 25, 2014 (UTC)
Merry Christmas Leea. Don't worry about the board meeting. We'll find a substitute for you. There will be one more after this and hopefully you can attend that (time is TBD). --Skire (talk) 21:17, December 25, 2014 (UTC)

It's a Wikia patch, it will probably be noted on one of the lastest Weekly updated blogs. Everyone has it. You can configure the references with it.

Terminator series Edit
Hey Leea. This is BrandonFox, I can't log into my original account because of password issues.
I didn't know you love the Terminator films. I love the first two films, first one is brilliant with its gritty feel and the second one is just as good with its polished and complete end to the story. But I hated the third one. It just took everything about how we make our own fate from the second film and flushed it down the toilet. It was also just a cash grab. It's been severl years since I saw the third film, so I'm gonna watch it again soon, maybe I'll think differently of it. I haven't seen Salvation but I want to see it too, just to see if it's as bad as people make it out to be, hell maybe I'll like it more than 3. Also, have you ever seen the Sarah Connor Chronicles?
And that trailer for Genisys.... it looks fabulous!
Alright, I got my account back now.
That's a shame. The first movie is brilliant, in my top 10 favourite movies. It has a real gritty and desperate feel to it and had a cyberpunk sort of atmosphere. I also have to admire its techno-ish soundtrack (the theme is the bes in the series) and I actually liked the film just a tad more than Judgement Day. I have the first three on DVD. I might be taking being in the location of civilization for granted as I can order for the internet and just have DVDs delivered here :p It must suck living out in the sticks. Yeah, Judgement Day is badass, I even cried during the T-800s sacrifice the first few times I saw it. And it gives us such a resounding conclusion to the story! Judgement Day being averted due to the whole "no fate" theme. One of the reasons I didn't like T3 was being it just contradicts this whole idea and gives something of an ass-pull for the apocalypse happening anyway. I didn't like the TX, okay her actress is hot but that doesn't make a good terminator! I don't feel threatened by a model. And it's obvious this movie was just toned down for a family fun audience, looking at the silly elements. Just look at the T-800 aquiring his clothes from a stereotypically gay male stripper in front of horny bachorlorettes and to the Village People, Elton John sunglasses and the TX's breast enlargement :p That stuff made me laugh my ass off but seriously? In a Terminator film? :L
Being rated a 12 also means that it can't communicate the stark and mature themes that the previous two films did. It's an entertaining film with the action at least. Despite an awful first half or so, the whole scene when John and Kath arrive at the fallout shelter to discover that they were only supposed to survive, not stop the war was quite heart wrenching and powerful. Probably the only thematically good part of the movie.
Well, I've ordered Salvation. When I watch it I'll let you know what it's like c:
After recently watching Salvation, yeah. It's not a good movie haha. It's worth a watch though simply to see what the war between the Resistance and Skynet is like which I thought was done well. The effects are fab and Marcus and young Kyle Reese have good performances but that's about it. Christian Bale is horrid as John Connor in my opinion and Katherine is just there in the background (I suppose the makers realized how useless she was in Terminator 3). I'd probably rate it a 4/10. At least a bit better than Terminator 3 in my view though because it tries to do something different with the story rather than re-hash the first two movies like 3 did.
Oh, and I've started Bioshock Infinite by the way and am a couple hours in. So far from what I've experienced, it's an excellent game. Gameplay is brilliant, the characters are written perfectly, the story is really well thought out with very engaging themes and keeps you gripped and the world design is just gorgeous. Hmm, is this a potential favourite in the series for me? Time will tell.
Salvation was okay. Because it takes place in the future, it leaves room for more of a story to tell rather than the tired go back and kill Sarah/John which was complete with T2. I haven't seen the TV series but it arrived today in the post and I will watch it when I can. Ha, I don't know about burning through them. I completed Bioshock 2 almost 2 months ago so it's reasonable. I completed Infinite today. It's brilliant! It's actually my favourite in the series and in my top 10 favourite games. I really got lost in Columbia, I explored for ages and spent my time on the levels. I do miss Rapture a bit though, that's the beauty of Infinite: it's about the existence of different realities. When you play it, you will find some key links to the original games. They connect in suprising ways. Burial at Sea is set after the events of Bioshock Infinite and acts as a prequel to the first game.
Hmm, I don't think that the Big Daddies and Plasmids are a result of time travelling from Infinite's characters. A Voxophone (Infinite's audio diearies) found in Infinite explains how one of Columbia's scientists peers through a Tear (a dimensional rift in the world which allows you to see alternate realities) into Rapture's universe and basically spies on Tenenbaum and effectively copies her work to create Vigours. Burial at Sea was meant to be a wrap up to the Bioshock trilogy as a whole I think. I'll play it when I can and tell you what I think.
Comments on Burial at Sea the future of the Bioshock series as a whole: In February 2014, while promoting Burial at Sea: Episode Two, series director Ken Levine stated that the Burial at Sea will leave fans "walking away pretty satisfied with feeling a sense of completeness", with Courtnee Draper (voice of Elizabeth) calling it "the wrap-up for the whole BioShock series". Shortly after, Levine revealed that Burial at Sea would be Irrational Games' last game in the BioShock series, leaving the intellectual property in the hands of 2K Games, should they like to continue the franchise with another developer.

SaintPain→ Here to help." 14:44, January 14, 2015 (UTC)
Your efforts and diligence have not gone unnoticed, and you have been given a small token of appreciation.
On your "gift" Edit
It was sort of random. I just felt like giving you it from my finishing of Infinite and Burial at Sea Episode 2. So I've played the whole series now. Episode 2 was an excellent tie off to the trilogy and has such a nice bittersweet ending that directly links to Jack. I know you've read about it but yeah, Elizabeth had a lot to do with the events that precede from the first game by bringing the activation phrase to Fontaine, Sally (Booker DeWitt's adopted daughter in Rapture's universe, except he isn't actually Booker DeWitt, he's actually Comstock from a different universe to Infinite's where Elizabeth's head was cut off instead of her pinkie finger) being one of the little sisters that Jack saves. Elizabeth also indirectly causes Suchong's death by creating the protection bond between the Big Daddy that killed him and his little sister.
This series has been excellent for me and stands as one of my favourite trilogies alongside Mass Effect. While Bioshock 2 had some iffy moments, mainly with how familiar it was being back in Rapture and how the environments just didn't do it for me and its in my opinion weaker story to the first and third, it was still a great game. Really, you should play Infinite!
