Moderator Edit

Yeah, I've noticed that trend lately as well. However I still think the title "Moderator" applies since they bear the rights of both chat moderators and patrollers, and the combination of the two rights sets makes for a unique condition that I think is important to distinguish. I'm doing ok, school has me very busy right now. I am taking Organic Chemistry two and Microbiology consecutively and those two classes eat a large amount of my time. I've also started talking with someone over long distance, and that takes a lot of my time as well. I need to start editing more, probably going to do some overhaul stuff with the bug charts soon. ---bleep196- (talk) 18:50, March 14, 2014 (UTC)

Forum Invitation Edit

After its creation five days ago, Forum:Military conflict policy brainstorming is about to wrap up and I feel it could use some more public attention.

As one of the active participants on the Fallout Wiki:Military conflicts project, I feel it necessary to bring this forum to your attention in order to generate a better result.

I hope you can find the time to put in your input. If not, then I understand completely. Thanks for reading, --The Ever Ruler (talk) 21:47, March 15, 2014 (UTC)


They're all set up, save for creating the actual archived forums and the categories for them. I'm not sure if we can use a bot to move the archived forums from the existing archive to the new ones, since we'll have to go into page history and determine which forum they originally came from (and probably check to see if that was the correct one to begin with). We'll probably have to do these by hand, there are about 900 or so of them, but you're welcome to help with that when everything's ready. I'm just tweaking the forum intro for the archived forums now. Probably be ready to start moving them tomorrow. The Gunny  UserGunny chevrons 01:24, March 19, 2014 (UTC)

All the changes to the forums, forum templates and new categories are done. We'll need to start moving the archived forums back to the proper categories. I will write up a forum on the DB with instructions so everyone knows how to do this correctly and hope to get some help. Be advised: there are some empty categories. Eventually, all the archived categories will be populated, but the "pinned" forum categories will not be until we "pin" some forums. Please do not delete any of these empty categories, I'd rather have them set up now and ready for content than have to remember how to set them up later on when we actually "pin" something. The Gunny  UserGunny chevrons 15:47, March 19, 2014 (UTC)
Do you think AWB can run over that archived forum cat, find the old forum header templates and add them back to the pages with the additional |archived parameter? I don't want the archived forum template removed from the threads, though, so you can't just revert the edit. Either that or you do two runs: One to revert and one to add the archived forum template back in. Possible? The Gunny  UserGunny chevrons 16:49, March 19, 2014 (UTC)
Sounds like a plan. I'm probably gonna do a couple by hand in each category just to make sure nothing unexpected comes up. The Gunny  UserGunny chevrons 20:24, March 19, 2014 (UTC)

(The new categories will not be listed as forums on the forum index. They will have their own forum lists (those are already made) that are linked from the bottom of their parent forum. For example: Forum:Archived Wiki discussion will only be linked to from the bottom of Forum:Wiki discussion. All you need to do is put the old forumheader template back, and add the |archived parameter to it. Leave the {{Archivedforum}} template in place. Once everything's moved, we'll remove the old archive category from that template. At some point, after we add the forumheader templates back, we can then go through and make sure things like applications are in the correct archive. The Gunny  UserGunny chevrons 00:48, March 20, 2014 (UTC)

Actually, I got bored and am almost through moving all applications and votes to Forum:Archived Wiki proposals and applications. When I'm done everything left should go to Forum:Archived Wiki discussion. Everything is all still in [[:Category:Forum archives]], so you're going to have to configure your bot to check to see if it's also in Category:Archived Wiki proposals and applications or not. If it's already in Category:Archived Wiki proposals and applications, have the bot skip it. I probably just made the job a lot harder, but, like I said, I was bored and had a lot of cigar left. Sorry. The Gunny  UserGunny chevrons 02:29, March 20, 2014 (UTC)
I ran awb and made the changes. The Gunny  UserGunny chevrons 02:48, March 22, 2014 (UTC)
Eh. No worries. I really needed to set AWB up to use here anyways. I ended up giving myself a bot flag to finish so I didn't slay rc too much. If I need to do something like this again, I'm just going to create a bot account. As an aside, I set up the AWB white list page. Right now, I've got your bot flagged as a bot and your main account as human. You'll be able to use AWB on both accounts, but only the bot will be able to use the autosave function. If you need this changed, you can access that page from the Help:Bots page. Anyone who wants to use AWB, either as a human or a bot must be listed on that page. Did I miss anyone? The Gunny  UserGunny chevrons 23:51, March 22, 2014 (UTC)

Jack and DianeEdit

what was wrong with my post you deleted?

'd like to know what was wrong with the posting i made '"Jack & Diane" is a 1982 hit song written and performed by American singer-songwriter, John Mellencamp' since there is already a reference to another song on there! Vault Kid 3 (talk) 03:00, March 23, 2014 (UTC)

Re: !Edit

Don't worry; I'll still be around here the same amount I have been (I know that's not saying much), but as a Patroller-ish instead. I wasn't using my admin tools as often as an admin should, so I rescinded the privileges. See you around, Kastera (talk) 02:27, March 25, 2014 (UTC)

Re: Birthday Edit

Thank you my friend :D --TwoBearsHigh-Fiving Intercom01 23:37, March 28, 2014 (UTC)

Things Edit

Things are alright, I guess. Been a little hectic in real life. I actually have been enjoying my powers, so far. Although, gunny blames me for Ryan getting accidentally banned earlier lol. Thanks for all of the help over the years. Paladin117>>iff bored; 02:49, March 31, 2014 (UTC)


My "hate" or resentment comes from the fact that you and 2 others tried to harm the rights of a valued user. I see you are now misusing chat logs. That fact that you make this public makes yourself look bad, we have Private Messaging for a reason, Skire. Do not act high and mighty with me, your rights are not bothering me. In chat I am free to say that I do not care for you. There was no name calling, nor was there threats. My comments on that forum, by the way, was just, as you and the 2 others have been implementing new and drastic rules around this wiki to better yourselves. Now that that has been said, I will leave you with this: Anything else that is to be said to me is to be said in Public Chat, anymore Talk Page messages will go unanswered, and Chat logs are not there for your "Public Use". This is something you should know from a previous users use of them. Thank you. Have a nice day. RangerSequoia "Some say this user is a Moderator..." Wiki 22:52, April 4, 2014 (UTC)

Sorry about not responding Edit

Sorry about not responding to your invitation in December. I have been on hiatus lately due to work and personal reasons, and just now saw it. @_@

Featured articlesEdit

I trust you made a good selection. But you've now done only part of it, and I was expecting you'd also create the new articles themselves. Each selected article needs to be rewritten for use as the featured article. That's still a lot of work, more than selecting it. Are you still going to do that?

Anon IP Edit

Hello fellow administrator! I'd like to implement a script from the Open Source Wiki that allows the Wikia Contributor designation to be replaced with their IP address on forums, recent changes, etc. This would be set so that only administrators would have this script enabled, and I'd like feedback to see if this is something we should implement. Leave your thoughts on my talkpage. Thanks! --TwoBearsHigh-Fiving Intercom01 05:14, April 7, 2014 (UTC)

Basically the function would serve as no more than a convenience. -TwoBearsHigh-Fiving Intercom01 19:33, April 7, 2014 (UTC)
I would have no problem with it. I'll wait for a couple of the other admins to get back to me and I'll see what Gunny thinks about it :) --TwoBearsHigh-Fiving Intercom01 02:02, April 8, 2014 (UTC)


I will be getting to work tonight, then! Just remember that I do not have much free-time to spare anymore, though. But I can probably manage a page every month or so until my activity picks up again. Just send me a page you would really like to be re-written at the beginning of each month, and I will throw whatever time I can at it. ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 19:56, April 7, 2014 (UTC)


It is difficult to ascertain a 'need' for chatmods, and I think lapses in moderation are going to happen whether we have 4 mods or 40. I can tell you though, it wasn't until Emiko that I honestly felt happy with the amount of mods. Now I agree with you, it can't be allowed to become based on a lack bad behaviour as opposed to actually deserving and having a need for the rights. Not getting yourself banned isn't much of an achievement in my book. FollowersApocalypseLogo A Follower  Talk  01:39, April 9, 2014 (UTC)

Casserole Edit

Yeah, I don't know either. I double checked the GECK and the Vault to be sure. What makes it especially odd is the anon's first edits to the wiki are reverting Crazy Sam and then reverting the people that revert him/her. Too weird. Paladin117>>iff bored; 02:39, April 12, 2014 (UTC)

FA rewritesEdit

I know it's hard work. Writing new content is one of the toughest things to do around here, but also one of the most important things and if you succeed there's a lot of reward for the wiki and yourself. Hope you can keep it going. Every day/week and few pages and slowly we'll get there, right? Having some help should also speed up things a little. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 20:52, April 13, 2014 (UTC)
