Re: Edit summary Edit

I wanted to use something to associate with the problem of using regular Substantives as names (Vault Dweller isn't a name, but a title), to complain about it. I, however, take it back. --Breakin'Benny (talk) 18:36, November 3, 2014 (UTC)

Nukapedian of the YearEdit

Congratulations! You are a qualified nominee for NotY 2014 and will be moving on to stage II. Please see this blog here for instructions on writing a little introduction for yourself in preparation for the polling stage. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask me on my talk page. --Skire (talk) (via the courier) 23:21, December 10, 2014 (UTC)

Hello! In order to ensure that the competition finishes in a timely manner (the winner is to be announced on New Years Day), it is important that the personal introductions are posted here as soon as possible. Accordingly, I must set a deadline, which will be by the end of the day on Monday, December 15. If you are unable to make the deadline, do not worry! You can still compete in the next stage. --Skire (talk) 23:15, December 12, 2014 (UTC)

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) 17:51, December 25, 2014 (UTC)

Removing content from talkpagesEdit

For your consideration, before you revert talkpage removals, check what they remove. The only thing that was removed was the welcome message, which is no problem for me anyway (as it is "forced" by us) and that one message from me was 3,5 years ago and sort of a friendly reminder. I would have allowed the removal (don't think it was really bad faith). Also, it may be a person who wants to give it another go and start editing. Then to immediately be backpegged is a bad welcome from our side and a turn off. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 16:48, January 3, 2015 (UTC)

Thanks, it's not a problem at all! Nothing to apologise for. Just looking for answers is all. Not exactly Wiki-knowledgeable. --Adventus Evander (talk) 00:01, January 6, 2015 (UTC)

Weapons and stuff Edit

OK, so I looked at a bunch of weapons pages to see how we have dealt with this stuff in the past. Here's the problem: we've dealt with it inconsistently. In a nutshell, I see weapons fall into hierarchical categories based on design. To wit: Handguns are either revolvers, semi-automatic pistols (often called autopistols) or machine pistols. Long guns have much broader categories. Please see the list I've started on User:The Gunny/sandbox. Take for example the FAL. It's nomenclature hierarchy goes: Firearm > Long gun > Rifle > Battle rifle > FAL series rifles > FAL. When you look at some weapons, we have pages for their weapon type, e.g., Battle rifle, and some have pages for their series type, e.g., SIG-Sauer pistol. We are wholly inconsistent here. Content amount notwithstanding, I think we should standardize these kinds of pages. If we have a page for battle rifles, and assault rifles, we should have a page for autopistols, lever-action rifles, semi-auto shotguns and revolvers, too. Also, if we have pages that group a bunch of related weapons together like the Sig Sauer page, or worse, the 10mm pistol page, which has the Chinese pistol on it, then we should see if we have enough content to add any other series of related weapons pages.

Take a look at what's in my sandbox, and let me know your thoughts. The Weapons page is in dire need of help anyways, so we can make a little bit of a project out of improving it, it's related weapons type pages, and any weapons series pages we have/need. The Gunny  UserGunny chevrons 00:37, January 11, 2015 (UTC)

Gauss Rifle FootnoteEdit

It's not a reference, it's a footnote. The footnote was used because I didnt want to clutter the characteristics section with such a detailed explanation when it could be referenced as a footnote for those readers to peruse who actually care to know the little details. The very point was to make it optional reading. Using a footnote seemed a workable way to accomplish this. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Malebiped (talkcontribs). Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

Alright, well, I didn't intend for that bit of information to be in the Characteristics section because it borders on off-topic. Its purpose is just to clarify a very technical point for those interested in such. It should be optional (in some kind of end note or similar) or not there at all. Since I don't know how to make an end note in a way that you approve of, we should just remove that bit altogether... or you could tell me how it's supposed to be done. --Malebiped (talk) 22:16, January 21, 2015 (UTC)

Charon's Combat Lever Edit

Hey Pally, just to let you know that Charon's combat shotgun's a lever action, therefore the reloading and jamming sounds should also be lever. (sarcastic humour) --吉野Cassie CassieSig02Talk to me! ✿ 03:45, January 28, 2015 (UTC)

Bobblehead MedicineEdit

I restored Soukey's edit on the Medicine bobblehead. That was a good note and an interesting one. When you check the GECK for it, it's the only bobblehead (out of 20) with 3 versions. This is a editor with prospect and it's best to keep those motivated. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 16:05, February 12, 2015 (UTC)

I don't know. We can't use it always but I feel here we can make an exception somehow for this special item. The liked the explanation about once you pick it, the others are hidden by the script. It is written by a modder, I think we may have a good editor here with tech knowhow. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 23:45, February 12, 2015 (UTC)

Are you even reading my edit notes? Edit

I've stated my intentions for editing the .45 pistol page in its talk page as well as in the edit notes, but seeing as how you seem to have disregarded both of those sources, I have decided to message you directly. As I've already stated on the talk page, the information the wiki currently has on John Browning is irrelevant to Fallout. Therefore, either relevant information should be added, or the point about John Browning should be removed.

Fallout 3 GuideEdit

I don't have the first edition of the guide which seems to include the note, only a digital version of the Game of the Year Guide, which doesn't have the note. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 23:30, April 24, 2015 (UTC)

Definition of "Speculation" Edit

Really, reverting all my edits for stuff like this is getting annoying. Just because a game doesn't explain every last little detail doesn't mean people can't figure out for themselves what happened or why. Just put two and two together! For example, the angry, shouting holographic alien head in This Galaxy Ain't Big Enough... should by all rights be the head of the Alien captain, seeing as he/it's the number one candidate for being that head's owner, and that's exactly what would a captain would do at that point if he found out a bunch of escaped convicts were running loose on his ship and killing all his crew, and it's easily the point in a story when the villain would reveal himself to the heroes.

And you can't just say "Oh, they're aliens. They all look alike." or "You can't tell if it's really the captain because you still can't understand what it's saying!" because there are literally no other high-ranking alien personnel in the entire game, and it couldn't have been from an alien on the other mothership since it doesn't appear until Zeta is completely taken over, and if it was, it would've been projected on the bridge instead of in the lower levels of Zeta while the first ship was still crewed by the aliens.

Torr's brahmin quest Edit

See, I experienced that you cannot guard the brahmin even if you say you can't help Torr now. That is by logic supposed to mean you promise to help later... I had to either take the Duntons' quest to rustle the cows, or exit Klamath and return by pressing the number key to enter the grazing grounds. --Breakin'Benny (talk) 12:13, May 5, 2015 (UTC)

Possible events after new vegas. Edit

So these are events that really happened after New vegas? I mean its because most of them are determined by the players actions such as the Big MT "sonic invasion" ending(Its a possible ending of various different endings.), i added the section in which you reverted because i thought they were only possible outcomes and events of what would happen after Fallout: New Vegas. Tesshu (talk) 13:56, May 11, 2015 (UTC)

Challenge strategy Edit

Could you explain why "strategy" is not permitted in Challenge articles? It's prevalent in numerous other types of articles, such as quests. I don't understand why the Challenge pages are treated differently.

dbbolton (talk) 18:45, May 11, 2015 (UTC)

RE: Arroyo Edit

I took that from the opening to the article, although since I can't provide a citation it might be wrong there too.


There's a difference. Adding |Ghoul to it moves the ghoul category in Category:Van Buren characters alphabetically to the letter G, away from the letter F(allout). Now if you look at my edit you just reverted, you moved the Van Buren ghoul characters category back to the letter V(an Buren), which makes it alphabetically incorrect. Above it, you'll see the Van Buren player characters category assigned to the letter P and Van Buren mentioned-only characters category to the letter M. They aren't under the letter V from Van Buren. So My |Ghoul addition moves the category to the letter G for alphabetical correctness. It's a system Porter or Ausir came up with (though it's pretty much standard wiki practice I think). Jspoel Speech Jspoel 14:33, June 1, 2015 (UTC)

FO4 Release date Edit

Gamestop also lists Dec. 31 as the release date (for all 3 versions in fact). Would that be sufficient to consider restoring the release date edit, or is this just Bethesda's placeholder in lieu of an actual date? --FFIX (talk) 19:29, June 3, 2015 (UTC)

Edit Summaries Edit

I have held my tongue, for the most part, when it comes to casual blogs/forums. But in a rather short period of time, you have become increasingly aggressive and condescending towards your interactions with other users, and I am asking for you to chill out.

I am confronting you, because you have now gone from casual mediums of this wiki, to abusing the edit summary tool. That tool is not for you to get passive-aggressive with other editors - it is there to explain your changes. That is not even to mention that when I made that change, in no way was I saying there was a dark secret - I was referring to a deeper meaning, by saying that baseball/baseball attire has a bigger meaning there in ways not explained yet - as in, maybe they still partake in baseball. Maybe there was a large cache of baseball goods, that gave them clothes and equipment. That is speculation, but then again, I never said any of that in the article.

Just please, in the future, stop being so damn aggressive for absolutely no reason. Especially when you are an administrator, and you are supposed to be professional. 23:33, June 4, 2015 (UTC)

First of all: those are not the reason why I sent you a message. I sent you a message, because of your clear abuse of the edit summary tool. There is absolutely no excuse for you to abuse them in that manner, and I am not going to let you blame me for your abuse.

As for the rest, I s'pose I will go ahead and explain myself:

  • Protectron - That motioned laser, moving in a wave as a lighthouse would do, is a clear indicator that the robot has advanced recognition capabilities. That is not speculation - normal protectrons essentially have cameras for an eye.
  • Ghoul - Those ghouls were shown to leap, meaning that they can recognize having an advantage in the air against their prey. If you look to the left, it shows the wall coming to an end, meaning the ghouls were cornering their prey. They also are shown to have reasoning powers beyond anything we have seen in Fallout thus far, by throwing nearby objects around instead of simply walking around them or jumping over them.
  • Deathclaw - We have never seen this type of deathclaw before, and they look nothing like the original strain created by the Enclave. This means that they either evolved, whether natural or unnatural, or they adapted to their environment. This, in no way, is speculation.
  • Mr. Handy - Absolutely nothing here was speculation. It was either manufactured that way, or personally modified to look that way. I made sure not to say for a fact as to which option it was.
  • Eyebot - Not speculation - that eyebot was shown floating through a settlement, and was not aggressive or spewing propaganda of any kind. You will even notice that I made sure to specifically mention that it is currently unknown how far the peace extends, as it could have just been sent in there to scout the location.

The worst part is, that you replaced a ton of what I said with "...appears to..." - guess what? You just turned my purposeful ambiguity, in order to skirt around speculation, into actual speculation. Using "...appears to..." is a perfect candidate for removal as speculation. 23:51, June 4, 2015 (UTC)

Untitled 2Edit

about the dogmeat entry...sorry, misread it. Grammar in that sentence might need a little cleaning up, but that's not my strong point. So what is really needed is a quote from one of the writers that says he is a descendant?-- 00:56, June 5, 2015 (UTC)

Fancy LadsEdit

If you remove the asterisk from the Fancy Lads, the "sentence" gets too short in comparison with "Variants". It just looks plain akward. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 13:44, June 6, 2015 (UTC)

We have those asterisks all over the place. Mostly on pages that have 1 variant examples like consumables. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 14:03, June 6, 2015 (UTC)

Untitled 3Edit

T-51b Armor Fallout 4

Yeah i just saw that, but it does have the T-51B helmet if i am not mistaken. Sorry about the quick post of the picture, from now i will do some research before is post something.

Your imagesEdit

Are pretty good. All png, have good names. It's nice to get some help with those images, particarly if they have been paid attention to. Finally some images I don't have to replace, which has been a long while. Though I will replace the wonderglue image in just a minute (telling in advance so you don't become annoyed I hope). For the infobox image, the ratio should preferably be landscape, because otherwise you get that empty sidebar. And the image is just a bit too small, I've added a bit more of the surroundings, otherwise it gets so tiny. Think I'm going to add a general blog or wiki discussion about how to handle these things when the next wave hits, in a weeks time. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 15:50, June 7, 2015 (UTC)

I discovered something interesting. You've outmatched me in image quality on for example the Protrectron image. It's of better quality than I can get it, even at 1080 youtube download quality. How did you create it? Jspoel Speech Jspoel 16:23, June 7, 2015 (UTC)
Must be you have a larger screen than I have then. Vaultboy98 even has uploaded a sharper image of the T-51b power armor than I have :/. You can upload the video from youtube, than you play it on your mediaplayer and create 1920*1080 screenshots without the bars. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 16:34, June 7, 2015 (UTC)

( Actually, I just discovered I uploaded the 1280*768 version. Just uploaded the 1920*1080 one using We try again... Jspoel Speech Jspoel 16:49, June 7, 2015 (UTC)

Mister Handy imagesEdit

Those are incredibly sharp! I've checked with my 1920*1080 trailer I downloaded, but yours is still a whole lot sharper. We should also use the Sugar Bombs (Fallout 4) image from it. How did you do it? Jspoel Speech Jspoel 15:30, June 8, 2015 (UTC)

Wow. Feel free to replace everything on Fallout 4 images we have. This is much, much better. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 15:49, June 8, 2015 (UTC)
I'm reuploading some exact same images you did. It's not that I want to have my name on it, but it's needed for our Wikia app. I'm selecting images for categories and for that I need to upload some of them again. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 01:12, June 9, 2015 (UTC)


What falls under too much of it anyways? -- 23:19, June 11, 2015 (UTC)

(Response to your response): Really? Because when I saw the article for the Deathclaw Sanctuary, I noticed some speculative words about the reasons why the Enclave would visit it. I figured a LITTLE speculation was okay. -- 03:45, June 12, 2015 (UTC)

Actually, no. All content needs to be accurate. Without proper source, any form of speculations not allowed. If there is one though, it will be removed in no time ones it has been founded. --吉野Cassie CassieSig02Talk to me! ✿ 04:14, June 12, 2015 (UTC)


Who actually still plays Killzone? is user:A lone traveler stumbles upon some wood, user:Pan Gargamel and user:Rainbow LSD Gorilla. User:Let's erect some wood is someone else appearantly.


(I mess up on my question) I was wondering, How do you revert an article back to it's original state if it's vandalize or the info is wrong without going back on it's history to see. I am still fairly new here. --RocknRollFallout32 (talk) 01:24, June 19, 2015 (UTC) I always thought There was a button that could revert the article back to it's original state sorry to bother you--RocknRollFallout32 (talk) 01:34, June 19, 2015 (UTC)

Ok, thank you.

Howard and NoraEdit

Why did you create pages for Howard and Nora? You don't see their names during character creation, and it's like they didn't show that; it's probably the first thing you need to select from the 1000 names and then create the character. It's a random choice and Howard and Nora aren't a fixed name for the player character. Now we have four pages for two characters which is only confusing. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 15:00, June 22, 2015 (UTC)

Howard/ Nora references in Sole Survivor. Edit

I removed the specific reference to Howard and Nora from the Sole Survivor Infobox because these are the names only in the E3 presentation. As we know the player can select any name during the SPECIAL process therefore these references are not accurate. I moved this reference to the Notes where it seems more appropriate so it is noted for reference. This is why I changed the main text, moved it down to notes and updated the Infobox. I suggest the current Howard and Nora pages are consolidated to a Spouse page which sets out what we know of the what happens to the non player character once the decision is made during configuration (applies to both and name is not certain) Rather as Jspoel notes in the other message I just read. Lunamoonraker (talk) 16:02, June 28, 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for the explanation. I understand the point on the pre-defined names as in Nora. However it still seems confusing to have links from husband/ wife to Howard/Nora in the main text. Why no just leave them unlinked? Less room for confusion then. I can see why it will be better to leave the reference in the Infobox and update the male NPC name once know.

My remark on the (location) recategorization, for what it's worth; you're making the structure fundamentally worse. Now if you look at an important page like Westside; you have to click through three(!) subcategories (FNV towns, New Vegas and Westside) to actually find it. No one, especially Wikia app users, is going to do that, and will think "where is that page?". Countless similar examples. Take a look at it yourself, do you really believe this it the way to go? I don't. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 15:48, July 11, 2015 (UTC)

I voted against it, and for the reason I mention above. 65% of the users are mobile phone users and a high percentage of them will use the Wikia app. For this large group important pages are not visible in the main category, which they should be. People should be able to browse to them (almost) directly, and not have to use the search function. This deep structure ruins the ease of finding pages. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 16:16, July 11, 2015 (UTC)
Did you know that 84% of statistics are made up on the spot? I've sent a request to wikia for the actual numbers for our wiki. I highly doubt it's that high for mobile, and a lot of the mobiles are using desktop view. I know I do when on mobile. As far as the app, it's only got a few thousand downloads. Not sure why we are even taking that into consideration.  The Gunny  UserGunny chevrons 17:22, July 12, 2015 (UTC)

Fallout 4 YearEdit

We don't know what year Fallout 4 starts. So 2277 is clearly guessing. We don't have to follow policy here (it's a guideline anyway), and can fill in the blanks when Fallout 4 is released. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 22:32, July 24, 2015 (UTC)

I'm pretty sure he meant an estimate year, not an exact one. It's very unlikely they'd go back in time from 2281 to 2277, and use the Fallout 3 year again. They've never done such a thing before. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 22:42, July 24, 2015 (UTC)

It has it advantages as a redirect, but I suppose it's not that good to see it on the skills page. A template creates it and can't be avoided.
