Howitzer Edit

"It may not be edit warring " Yet you accused me of that, now retract it. Furthermore I only changed that title to fit better in the infobox, I thought it was also policy to leave other edits alone. You reverted the other changes to the Howitzer page which were perfectly legitimate changes. So I intend to change those back. You didn't try much talking either, I didn't get a link to the policy changes until after I made all of those changes. You accused me of edit warring when all the changes I made were before you first posted on my talk page, I didn't continue posting anything. Mictlantecuhtli 15:31, June 26, 2012 (UTC)

Laugh all you like, it doesn't change the fact you reverted good edits along with the one bad edit on the page. I do this casually, I am going to make mistakes. You don't have to be confrontational when I do. Mictlantecuhtli 15:53, June 26, 2012 (UTC)

Brass knucklesEdit

That was a good call on the brass knuckles yesterday. Now I've done all New Vegas base game location pages and there's really not that much loot on the pages, certainly no cluttering. So a 100% condition fixed brass knuckles fits. And congrats on reaching your 10th archived page. Starts to feel and look impressive eh? Jspoel Speech Jspoel 17:59, June 26, 2012 (UTC)

Hey that's a break for me. Sure, put my name on the rest of the FNV locations in the removed non-notable loot column. Not the column right next to it though; I still need to doublecheck for notable loot that isn't listed like important keys/ holodisks/notes/forgotten unique items etc. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 20:18, June 26, 2012 (UTC)

J Edit

He gave me the Go ahead in chat. Don't worry. I'll be done shortly. It will look spiffy.--Bunny2Bubble 19:09, June 26, 2012 (UTC)

I'll think you'll like it a lot. I'll be done come next edit.--Bunny2Bubble 19:18, June 26, 2012 (UTC)
Well, what do you think?--Bunny2Bubble 20:08, June 26, 2012 (UTC)

Hi Danny, It's Ryan, I'm on my phone at the momt ent, So Im not logged in. For yout concerns, I agree. Gunny has found a solution for making the avatars dynamic, so we will implement that. I can also add talk page links, and column it differently, (It shows in full on chrome). I will be at work, I'll do this right when I get home:) -TwoBears


Ruzka has performed in the circus before the Great War and is more than 200 years old. We can take for certain he's suffering from some sort of ghoulification in my opinion. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 02:03, June 27, 2012 (UTC)

On this topic.

  • All I did to edit the above was to move it to a Notes section .

I never disputed the speculation of ghoulification.

  • Before my edits the page was a run on mismatch cluster of unorganized content.

CupSaintPainThat was broke afore I got here. 02:58, June 27, 2012 (UTC)

Admin pic Cont.Edit

Hey, all of your points have been addressed, and it looks great! Talk page links and clipping all taken care of. I think you'll like it a lot, thanks Danny.--Bunny2Bubble 07:42, June 27, 2012 (UTC)

RE: Anon Edit

I just did what I thought was right. It's never too much to warn a user that does something like that, y'know :-) especially when you're not able to ban anyone, which is my case. --C'n-Frankie -ArroyoTalk 19:22, June 27, 2012 (UTC)

Jeez, mate! Well, the PT wiki has some movement every now and again, but minor users just trying to help. The only problem is that they do not have much knowledge on wiki tools, which makes their edits very messy. :-P But they put effort, which is very appreciated. Vandals and spammers also show up sometimes; they're everywhere, man, there's no way you can get away from them. hehehe --C'n-Frankie -ArroyoTalk 19:32, June 27, 2012 (UTC)


Well, normally I wouldn't see the point in that, put why not? It's justifiable enough, so let's go for it :) -- GOTW User | Talk 20:29, June 27, 2012 (UTC)


You okay, man? You seem a bit... not yourself.
I was more than a bit surprised to see how upset you got when I asked if the archiving talk page rule was entirely necessary. The only reason I asked was because I've been meaning to archive the thing but I don't really know about archiving rules - nothing more, nothing less. When I joined there were no talk page rules and looking back at it the whole thing just seems unnecessary.
Anyway, I just wanted to make sure we're on the same page here. Never meant to upset you or cause any trouble. If you wanted to talk about anything or get something off your chest, go ahead. There are plenty of people here who will listen and care, myself included. Don't want to see you upset or anything Yes Man defaultUser Avatar talk 05:44, June 28, 2012 (UTC)

Look, it's all past now. I understand you were having a tough day, it happens to the best of us. So long as you're feeling better, that's all that matters. Yes Man defaultUser Avatar talk 04:30, June 29, 2012 (UTC)

Revert? Edit

Why? I was reporting a problem. Doreiku Kuroofangu 17:42, June 28, 2012 (UTC)

Ah, Wikia dicking around with stuff again I see. Okay, sorry about that. Doreiku Kuroofangu 17:43, June 28, 2012 (UTC)

Infobox problemEdit

Not sure you know, but we've been upgraded to Mediawiki 1.19 today and that's what causing these infobox problems. Noticed you already reverted an edit by someone who tried to fix it by removing template coding. We need to stay vigilant preventing that. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 18:33, June 28, 2012 (UTC)

Good thinking on adding this to community messages. That should help preventing people 'fixing' the pages. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 19:30, June 28, 2012 (UTC)
We can't prevent the occasional user trying to change a page. Best to keep on eye on things for the time being. I'll send Wikia another message so they fix it as soon as possible. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 19:35, June 28, 2012 (UTC)
I've noticed it. Nice opportunity for some free category edits. Two-Bears already added it to the problems on the forum thread. But I just received word from Merrystar. Due to the problems we've been reverted so Mediawiki 1.16 again. Looks like those categories is something that didn't go right with the revertal. I'll add to the forum thread we've been reverted again to Mediawiki 1.16. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 13:42, June 29, 2012 (UTC)
Hey Danny, looks like the category achievement is not working after all :) So before you start editing hoping to strike it rich I would doublecheck that. It's not working for me anyway. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 13:57, June 29, 2012 (UTC)

Pink starEdit

Hey forgot you're an admin yourself who can restore images? :) Crazy Sam deleted a bunch of images yesterday including your pink star. I restored it now, so it should work again. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 14:33, June 29, 2012 (UTC)

TUH Edit

I think it was fully necessary. The 15 year old porn star with links just had perma ban written all over it. Her impersonation was also much more elaborate than what presented itself at the moment.--Bunny2Bubble 18:45, June 29, 2012 (UTC)

Category Edit

Do you see the necessity of the Category:Fallout New Vegas player characters? It seems really redundant as there is only one. --Bunny2Bubble 21:09, June 29, 2012 (UTC)

Yeah. I suppose that makes sense:P--Bunny2Bubble 21:16, June 29, 2012 (UTC)

Agatha's houseEdit

I wouldn't remove that loot from Agatha's house. When a container needs to be opened with special key I think it's worth mentioning. And Blackhawk is a unique weapon so that needs to stay on the page. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 22:04, June 29, 2012 (UTC)

Twin Mothers Dish Edit

Sorry about that, Teaching Alice Referencing tags and referencing in line with the style guide since she worked on that page last night. Agent c 22:22, June 29, 2012 (UTC)

Shoulda thought of that. Agent c 22:25, June 29, 2012 (UTC)


Can you come into chat for a moment? Jspoel Speech Jspoel 22:32, June 29, 2012 (UTC)

Pink starEdit

Hey Danny hope you had a nice weekend. Everyone needs a little break every now and then from this wiki. I'm still waiting for it ;) (although I've had a barbecue myself this weekend, party from my badmintonclub, last get together before a 2 month summer break). I've added a pink star image to your userprofile, you use that for admin star in chat, right? Otherwise it will show up as unused, and I like that cleared. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 22:02, July 1, 2012 (UTC)

NUN Edit

Great. Funnynamehere's status I need to confer with Hawk about. The other one you're welcome to introduce yourself to, but please don't be disappointed if you don't get much of a response as I'm not expecting a return from them. (I know you're probably used to it by now on one level, but I'm sure its still a bit disheartening). Agent c 00:15, July 2, 2012 (UTC)


There, you have the talk link. Energy X 10:09, July 2, 2012 (UTC)

Meat Edit

Well, I would have removed it if it didn't compound with the fact that he refers to everyone as meat, and his quote. But your decision is final of course, so it will stand.--Bunny2Bubble 20:11, July 2, 2012 (UTC)

After Andale, I feel that would be enough to say what Strange meat is. I agree, raiders are known cannibals, however, not everyone in the Pitt is, with his mannerisms and expressions with the meat, I think that note could be there, re-worded to something to the effect of "Due to the fact that he possesses strange meat and refers to the player and other humans as "meat" and "sausage", it is implied that he is a cannibal." Sure, not an earth shaking note, but to someone reading, a nice little note.--Bunny2Bubble 20:24, July 2, 2012 (UTC)
Ok:) I don't want to fight or anything, but you know how it is to see something you just edited removed:P--Bunny2Bubble 20:28, July 2, 2012 (UTC)
Thanks:)--Bunny2Bubble 23:49, July 2, 2012 (UTC)

hello im wondering if you will mentor me for the NUN i think it would be good if you mentor me because i know things about loot Erikmiller98 22:22, July 2, 2012 (UTC)

I probably won't catch you, but what matters is that I'm having fun with what I'm doing. Not the amount of edits or achievements. Congratulations on your accomplishments though!:)--Bunny2Bubble 20:07, July 3, 2012 (UTC)

Lol, I know. It is a fun use of free time, rather than play video games, (Except for the necessary Fallout Run of course) I usually come on here. Oh, I wrote out that White Legs section.--Bunny2Bubble 20:20, July 3, 2012 (UTC)


Hi Danny, two things. Firstly, you'll have to excuse my inactivity, I've only been able to get on to the net for a few minutes at a time, normally to check for messages and to try not to leave people hanging on fora &c., but I have a second now to tell you that I might not be as active as I'd like for around another week. If it's okay with you, I'd rather not explain, but dub it as familial issues. Rest assured though, I'll come back with a vengance ;).

The second thing is I noticed the addition of your religion to your user-page, but I'd suggest that you don't put it up/take it down, as religion and politics have been known to stir up enormous problems before, even just with something as simple as that. It's completely up to you, but I don't want to see you harassed for it. If you are though, I'll try to come to your defence, but it's unlikely you'll be able to keep it on there if someone wants to force you to take it down.

-- GOTW User | Talk 16:41, July 3, 2012 (UTC)

Well, okay, brave but good for you :). Seen as you are obviously proud of your religion, may I ask which denomination you are? -- GOTW User | Talk 20:49, July 3, 2012 (UTC)
Very interesting, that's for sure. Just make sure it's not a cult ;) (just playing). And, in the quest for facts and understanding that I am unlikely ever to need, I guess you believe it rather than were simply brought up as a Xian? Or is it a different scenario, such as conversion or the undertaking of Pascal's Wager? -- GOTW User | Talk 20:55, July 3, 2012 (UTC)
Yes, and now that I've done a little research on Bible Churches, I can see why it appeals to you. I'm not so sure, but I consider myself agnostic, rather than atheist, though I must admit that I get more atheist the older I got. I do, however, read into religions and the like to a great extent hoping to have some kind of spark that ignites some faith in me, but it is seeming more unlikely. I often consider Pascal's Wager though, but I would only ever do that once I have found no joy in my search for faith, and then 'pick' one based on it's doctrines and how outward looking it was, rather than the beliefs themselves. Maybe I'll take up Eastern Orthodox whilst doing my University course on account of Tsar Nicholas II being a saint ;) -- GOTW User | Talk 21:08, July 3, 2012 (UTC)
I know that, I meant in relation to Pascal's Wager, sorry for not making that clearer. Yes, but it's unlikely I ever will. Maybe I'll have a life changing event like Cat Stevens, but it's not particularly likely. And I'd be happy to talk about it to, but I warn you now, I hate it when people try to convert me, it's not going to happen. As you can no doubt guess, it's the same with most ideas. Like M-Theory; I'm more than happy to discuss it, but put personal beliefs aside so that it's more an imparting of knowledge about the religion rather than an imparting of 'facts' about the unknowable. That said, I do get myself into that situation a lot by being ultra-curious about most things, but particularly beliefs. I even took one of my A-levels solely to make my own mind up on Islam. Already signed up to the Sikh society at possible Unis too ;). -- GOTW User | Talk 21:23, July 3, 2012 (UTC)


I checked it in-game with subtitling on and it's Gleeson, not Gleason. I think the black background of some of the badges is a leftover from the conversion to the new mediawiki version. It can be added to the bugs on the forum page. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 20:45, July 3, 2012 (UTC)

Sawed off shotgunEdit

I was going to rewrite that sawed off shotgun note about the firing barrels with a verify tag. Thought it was a rather interesting note. Then I got an edit conflict, with you reverting it. Why did you revert it? Jspoel Speech Jspoel 16:21, July 5, 2012 (UTC)

Super mutants on ZetaEdit

Yes sirree! They should be in stasis chambers somewhere on the ship. I asked that question myself to someone in my early days here and got that answer. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 17:15, July 5, 2012 (UTC)

Mothership Zeta Edit

There are some super mutants that are frozen in the cryo lab and you can optionally release them, which makes them attack you. I'm pretty sure that's it though. Paladin117>>iff bored; 17:16, July 5, 2012 (UTC)

Re: Capitalisation Edit

I read over the guidelines, and there is nothing in there that isn't just common sense. Thanks for the heads-up, though. InquisitorBlunt (talk) 23:48, July 5, 2012 (UTC)

However, my edits were correct; allow me to explain. The page refers to the individual item,(Thermic Lance) and as such makes it a proper noun in that context. The game also refers to the item in full capitalisation. If you were to say: A thermic lance, that would be correct, but if you say: The Thermic Lance, you must capitalise it. Plus it just looks nicer capitalised, don't you think? InquisitorBlunt (talk) 00:32, July 6, 2012 (UTC)

Erm, that last sentence was a joke, I didn't mean to bring any opinions into this; I was jesting. However, while I still feel that a descriptive word like thermic lance should be capitalised, I understand that I have to follow guidelines; on my edits under Locations, I re-read the guidelines, and now understand why you revoked those changes as well, but why change "cutting" back to "metalworking"? That is my only remaining question. You've been very helpful; thanks for actually bothering to, you know, EXPLAIN why you revoked my edits. InquisitorBlunt (talk) 01:09, July 6, 2012 (UTC)

I just wanted to know why you revoked the changes, I'm not all that attached to them; I'm just really, really curious. That said, it's the fine details that matter. Addendum: I said cutting precisely because that is the nature, and I felt that that was more descriptive than "metalworking", but that works too. InquisitorBlunt (talk) 02:17, July 7, 2012 (UTC)

Spambot Edit

Ah ok, I had no idea about those, I'll be vigilant on that. And as far as the "Uther" issue, yes, I can confirm that it does show that way.--Bunny2Bubble 00:57, July 6, 2012 (UTC)

No problem, and would you mind coming in to chat for a moment?--Bunny2Bubble 01:03, July 6, 2012 (UTC)

Just noticed something...Edit

That you are 6th on the leaderboard! That's impressive, maybe you can catch up with me so that we may force GhostAvatar to edit. Energy X 10:53, July 6, 2012 (UTC)


Hello SigmaDelta54! I am very appreciative about your criticism and I want to thank you for your information! Im kinda new to wikia editing and I take your information very educating!

Point LookoutEdit

You've done a lot of work today, even more than me. Looks like you're beating ZAX today. Just 59 edits left till 10,000 edits! I'll do the peer review on Point Lookout. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 19:26, July 6, 2012 (UTC)

Issue Edit

Well first it's that as you might have noticed, I got selected for the Nukapedia RP and all. But I can't seem to be able to comment in any blog post. But well, I seem to be able to make edits. Other thing is... how do I add the little boxes to my user page? xD "This user plays..." and such.

Also sorry if I seem kind of pissy. I've had a horrible day since morning.~Rin-Rin~ (talk) 19:45, July 6, 2012 (UTC)

What literally happens is that I load the page, and everything is normal. But as soon as I do click on the comment box to type, the "post comment" button gets grayed out. Along with the "reply" button on other comments. So I haven't been able to comment anything. ~Rin-Rin~ (talk) 20:24, July 6, 2012 (UTC)

Okay. I'll try doing that and ask another admin if I still have the issue. It's strange since it seems to happen with both Internet Explorer and Chrome. 2 days ago it was fine. ~Rin-Rin~ (talk) 20:46, July 6, 2012 (UTC)

Query Edit

Hi there. Can you explain what you mean by this statement on your user page: "Random idiot blundering about. a.k.a Vometia."? Are you insulting that user or is it another one of your accounts? --Skire (talk) 21:33, July 6, 2012 (UTC)

I suppose it would've helped if I'd put a linebreak in there! The first half is a description of me and my ability to introduce more errors than information at times, and Vometia is just my usual id on e.g. the Bethesda forums. --Christine (talk) 21:48, July 6, 2012 (UTC)
I see, but is the actual User:Vometia yours? If so I'll have to ask you to only edit on one of them, as having multiple accounts without special permission is not allowed. --Skire (talk) 21:53, July 6, 2012 (UTC)
It's also my account, but I now only use this one on the Fallout wiki. --Christine (talk) 21:59, July 6, 2012 (UTC)
OK, but please be careful. Both accounts have had activity here and so I am within my rights to ban this one, mostly for fairness. But since nothing malignant has come out of this, I'll allow it. Only this once though. --Skire (talk) 04:07, July 7, 2012 (UTC)
I'd come here to help out in good faith, so I'm not really sure how this has turned into threats of me being banned. If this is how you you treat new editors, I'll take my leave. I don't think this approach was either necessary or helpful. --Christine (talk) 07:12, July 7, 2012 (UTC)

Elijah's LAER Edit

Hey, Sig. I see you protected that page indef. I saw the one edit that had to be reverted, but I'm not sure indef is really needed. Unless there's some other reason I'm not aware of, I'm lowering it to a month, registered only. If we still have problems, we can revisit it then. Actually, now I see you only protected it against moves. Did I miss something?  The Gunny  380px-USMC-E7 svg 01:46, July 7, 2012 (UTC)

Yeah. I saw that. That's why when I went back, I didn't change anything. I thought maybe I missed someone moving it again or something. I'm old, that happens;P The Gunny  380px-USMC-E7 svg 04:13, July 7, 2012 (UTC)

Hi. I'm intrigued that you removed my anonymous but I thought helpful comment "don't forget to re-equip your armour and helmet" on the Fallout 3 The American Dream page. I'd be interested to know whether I contravened a convention in case I do it again inadvertantly.

Brahman vs Brahmin Edit

It's actually a bit more confusing than that. Brahman is essentially a high ranked god in Hindu mythology, but Brahmin/Brahama is used to identify members of the highest of four castes in Hindu society. UserGreatMaraMessage 23:01, July 14, 2012 (UTC)

Well it was a correct statemetn but to be honest I'm not sure if it's more correct than the cow statement. Or if the developers even actually stated why it was changed. Both may just very well be personal theories about why the change was made. UserGreatMaraMessage 01:34, July 16, 2012 (UTC)
I don't really know. I was looking for information yesterday to see if the devs themselves gave a reason why it was changed but couldn't find anything. UserGreatMaraMessage 13:50, July 16, 2012 (UTC)

Fair enough. Edit

Fair enough, however one thing I have noticed when researching fallout was the space capsule characteristics ( feel free to check it yourself ) where it has been stated that the space capsule RESEMBLES the spacecraft used in the Gemini program and comments on the SIMILARITIES between the two, would it be acceptable then to post a link to Wikipedia regarding the F80 so that people may see for themselves and draw their own conclusions of what the fighter jet resembles? After all I was only trying to provide interesting information on the subject and although my page layout may have left something to be desired all information I contribute is to directly help and support this wiki, un biased and factual. I can only summarize then that the adding of information to the fighter jet characteristics must be the cyber equivalent of pissing on somebody's patch and the removal of said information to me is tantamount to censorship. Tell me, how can administrators have double standards? How can somebody say a space capsule looks like something in real life and I can't say a fighter jet looks like something in real life? Seems like hypocrisy to me, but that's just my opinion, and like all other opinions I have here in this place it will more than likely be summarily disregarded. On a personal note if I have offended you it was not my intention and I apologize, hopefully you can understand why I was angry about having my edit removed over and over again, I'm sure any one of you administrators would feel the same.

Info Edit

Where do you find what is the correct/incorrect info for the wiki? ------- Pipboy t shirt design by thecoconu SCorp 23:11, July 15, 2012 (UTC)

Thanks very much. ---- Pipboy t shirt design by thecoconu SCorp 00:21, July 16, 2012 (UTC)


Seems this should work. Well, thanks for the tip. Energy X 11:34, July 16, 2012 (UTC)

Variants Edit

But so far it's been the norm to only add the game tags in the header and mentions only when there's a new variant added by the DLC, like with the Cazador and Deathclaw pages for FNV. UserGreatMaraMessage 14:59, July 16, 2012 (UTC)

Yeah sorry, that makes sense now. Otherwise, we'd have to list all the DLCs if they appear in all of them. You can revert it =) --Skire (talk) 15:03, July 16, 2012 (UTC)

Bug Verification Edit

I'm confused about the bug verifications, like the edit you undid by Higgey on the Tenleytown Station page. None of the bugs have the appropriate platform tags so why wouldn't they be marked for verification? UserGreatMaraMessage 18:04, July 16, 2012 (UTC)

Listen, If you don't believe me, send him a message and wait for the real DarElfWuver to respond(I don't think he is on right now, so you'll have to wait a few days to get a response).

If you have undone any of my edits on his page, I ask that you return the page to the way it was.

Not a sound policy Edit

The user could then just say he has permission, even though he might not. I would consider revising that section of Wiki Policy. Unless you inform the affected user of edit on this and this day on this and this time by another user. I always leave him a message similar to that to let him know what I changed in case he has a better idea. But, of course, you didn't check his talk page, did you? I liked the Elder Scrolls wiki better. They don't tend to be as nosy. No offense to you in all of this. You're just doing your job, it's the wiki itself I'm complaining about.

I am in trouble because I apparently messed up someones page, I am in more trouble because I hold people accountable for their actions, or do you believe that administrators should be able to do whatever they like even when they are clearly in the wrong —Preceding unsigned comment added by Nerdbasher2000 (talkcontribs).

He then saw his mistake and ensured us for future times he will correctly use quotes when dealing with questionable things relating to other parties. Therefor, nothing more needs to come of this in my opinion and I also do not see the point in a screen shot being kept OR being taken in the first place, but it is really your call.

It's been something that's been going on in my mind for some time. Thinking about adding those 2 as notable loot. They're a bit on the edge of not or yes including them I think. Deciding to add these particular 2 items here is easy for me. They're the first encountered binocular and incinerator in the game and for me notable for sure. Especially the incinerator is interesting. Also all keys that open something significant should be mentioned. Good work/thinking on those bug project btw. Removing bugs without actual verification was a problem. That new template should help. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 16:18, July 26, 2012 (UTC)

Just doublechecked the GECK. Funny, two NPC's Janet and Jack for watching each other. Dazzle has one in a dresser. Two in Lucky 38, 1 in Cottonwood Cove HQ, 2 in Vault 3, 1 in Guardian Peak, 1 in Ranger Station Echo, 1 on the Bison Stevel Hotel. And a few in 'the wilderness'. So all in all not that many, and they're rather interesting I think. They certainly won't clutter the pages. I should know, I've been through all FNV location pages and the NL loot sections have already been trimmed down more than enough. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 16:48, July 26, 2012 (UTC)
Sure. Ah you know what it is. I've put a lot of work in researching the NL items. Several days, for many hours. But there is so much data in our 'Holy Grail' there's bound to are some things missed. As it is now, I think 80/90% of the NL items are included in the NL policy, but today is an example you find out that a few items are still missing. And even after to vote passes, another few may show up as notable. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 17:20, July 26, 2012 (UTC)

'Level' Bug Edit

I had removed the bug from the page since I have seen this so-called "bug" before, previously used in attempts at exploits. I have seen first hand the "bug", both from accident death after level-up (showing no fruition) and purposeful testing to check for an exploit, and I found it does not exist. Furthermore I found that the bug didn't make much sense in any case as it wasn't listed under a specific game (the bug listed would be taken as affecting all games as the article was for all game levels).

Trail mixEdit

Took me some time but I figured it out. In the base game there's 1 dufflebag on the conveyer belt opposite to the Boulder City train station which contains 2 fixed trail mixes. This is something that has been on my mind. There's already a lot of fixed locations on item pages but still a lot of item locations are missing is my guess. Would be good if that would be checked.

Therefore I just wanted to post this for a little breeze of entertainment.

Or should we all behave like university profs about such a medium like a video game?

Power Fists Edit

Don't need to check the G.E.C.K. Maybe the power fists are notable in New Vegas, but not Fallout 3. You literally trip over the damn things in every shop (Not talking about what the merchants specifically sell, but actually seeing power fists on shelves/etc.) and sewer you happen across in Fallout 3. I still have my doubts about them not having any fixed locations in New Vegas, but I don't know that one for a fact. I have a feeling it was a fluke adding that in though. Me and J talked about our list quite thoroughly, and the power fist never made it into any of our lists. Dragon Leon Skål! 22:34, August 1, 2012 (UTC)

Well, the reason I feel so strongly about this particular case is because before my trip, I was playing Fallout 3 quite a bit to confirm some information regarding part of the main quest-line I found while editing this wiki. I remember very well because of my new playthrough; running into tons of those useless things. xD As for when that was added to the policy, it was just recently. Before, it only listed unique weapons. I'm going to look back through me and J's discussions, but I don't remember the power fists ever making it into any of our lists. I have no idea how that item even came into question, unless it was meant for the New Vegas category. Although, like I just stated, I have my doubts about that one too. Needs definite checking though, as I am merely making an assumption since I only have a vague memory of finding power fists in New Vegas. Dragon Leon Skål! 22:43, August 1, 2012 (UTC)
Oh! And while we're on this subject, I wanted to extend my appreciation towards your initiative considering the finalizing of adding the notable loot into official policy. It's about time, and I'm glad it's finally over and done with for now. Did you happen to read my vote though? I would really like your opinion on it, as it's been giving me a lot of thought into how we can better this wiki. Dragon Leon Skål! 22:49, August 1, 2012 (UTC)
Looking forward to the verdict then. I'm not officially back yet, I just happened to find an internet cafe during my stay here in Detroit. I'll be hopping on a plane soon, and then I can finally get all of this flying done with and be back home for a shower and some proper sleep. Haha, I know what you mean. There's sometimes where I have to catch myself doing exactly that as well. No harm done though, and who knows? Maybe I'm just going batshit crazy and it'll turn out I'm the one who's in the wrong. Guess we'll find out soon! Thanks for being patient with me. Dragon Leon Skål! 22:53, August 1, 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, the more I think about it, the more I like the idea of having every fixed location and every random loot table listed here. It'll be a lot of work, but we will be better in the end because of it. And another nice benefit will be no more complaints from users who feel like a certain piece of loot should be noted. I think the policy we have now if fine for the mean-time, though. I definitely think we need to bring it up again at the first sign of Fallout 4, in my opinion. That will be the perfect time to start making serious improvements. Dragon Leon Skål! 22:57, August 1, 2012 (UTC)
I really appreciate the sentiment. It's good to know every now and again that not everyone despises you. ;) Also, you'll be seeing quite a bit of me for the next 2-4 weeks. I'm going to be becoming very active again so I can feel a little better about leaving here for so long. I'll be dealing with some family issues as well, (The reason why I'm not leaving for the Navy right off the bat.) but that won't nearly take up all of my days, so I'll have quite a bit of free time to contribute here. Just let me know if there's anything specific I can help out with around here. I'd offer to help out with the notable loot project, but I have the misfortune of not having a G.E.C.K. available to my person. Dragon Leon Skål! 23:12, August 1, 2012 (UTC)
Glad we have that behind us then! I'm going to continue working on how to improve the idea though. I won't be here long enough to see the policy improved, but I'll make sure to run my ideas by you and some others, and hopefully we'll be able to come up with something that satisfies everyone. Dragon Leon Skål! 22:56, August 2, 2012 (UTC)


I'm actually decreasing this list - I need to make at least one link from a page to that page (there are no links to those pages). So I guess you can call me non-creative when I put (almost) where not needed. But hey, somebody has to do that. Energy X 22:38, August 1, 2012 (UTC)

我需要 您的帮助 Edit

You missed a space in the header, it is 我需要 您的帮助 and not 我需要您的帮助 =P

Just so you know, the skin CSS is held in Wikia.css and Monobook.css respectively. I have reverted the changes in Common.css and applied it to only Wikia.css. If you want it for monobook as well, you just need to change Monobook.css also. As for the default links, they are changed via the theme designer located here. At the moment the default there is set as the same value as for visted links, I dont know if that is what you wanted. If not just change it there also.

Thanks a lot for the help Ghost, it looks perfect now! And no, Chinese does not use spaces in between words or even after punctuation. "我需要" is "I need" and "您的帮助" is "your help" with the more respectful "you" (您). Not sure why a space would be needed (unless it was a joke and my humour detector sensitivity is low) =P Love ya --Skire (talk) 01:59, August 2, 2012 (UTC)

ZH FOwikiEdit

Saw you adopted the Chinese (I think?) Fallout Wiki. I also noticed the design, mostly the old "Vault" logo, is kind of outdated. I played around with some colours and backgrounds, if you were interested.
Oh, and just in case - the link should have an orange sand-texture background, Chinese wordmark and favicon (yet the Favicon refuses to appear for me) and orange buttons/header. If they aren't showing up, then you'll need to clear your cache. I've used that Wiki a few times to play around with potential backgrounds/logos, so sometimes it displays old designs and whatnot.

Re:Links Edit

Wow, that move was over three months ago, time really does fly. No problem though with the links, I'm trying to keep myself busy. Paladin117>>iff bored; 15:11, August 2, 2012 (UTC)

Power fistEdit

They're too common. As you can see on the Power fist (Fallout: New Vegas) location section, they're plenty available. That's why they're not on the notable loot policy page. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 22:41, August 2, 2012 (UTC)

Talk pagesEdit

It's not exactly a policy, but I'm getting tired of seeing crap like "dis gunn is sooo c00l. it rox!!!!" and stuff like that plastered all over talk pages. Wikipedia says, "A talk page (also known as a discussion page) is a page which editors can use to discuss improvements to an article or other Wikipedia page.

We also have a similar guideline on The Vault (GA had his bot put a disclaimer on literally every talk page so stuff like this wouldn't happen). I wouldn't go as far as removing all non-pertinent info from the TP, the damage has been done; but bringing it up in the forum will probably be a good course of action. Might bring it to the attention of the community. --Kastera (talk) 16:53, August 3, 2012 (UTC)

Broken links categoryEdit

That category was automatically added with the 1.19 Mediawiki upgrade. When a page has a red link on it, the broken link category gets added to that page. Also, when a user edits his userpage while having a placeholder image, that userpage gets the broken link category. That's why I changed the automated new user message, removing the placeholder image. That way the category doesn't get unnecessary entries. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 21:19, August 3, 2012 (UTC)

Yes, that's a funny one. I changed a filename on that page yesterday and updated it at the same time, so it should even be on the broken links page. Don't know why that is exactly, but tomorrow it should be gone. It may be because the file has been on that page for so many years, it takes longer to clear? On another note, are you particpating the CSS seminar? I will. Starts in 25 minutes. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 21:35, August 3, 2012 (UTC)
Oh, and that category is only for file links, not wanted page links. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 21:37, August 3, 2012 (UTC)

Help with linking Edit

I need some help linking My blog:

To my blog, Lucy's location: Do you know what I am doing wrong?

 Denis517  Enclave Symbol (Fallout 3) 00:53, August 4, 2012 (UTC)

I have fixed it again. Sorry for bothering you

 Denis517  Enclave Symbol (Fallout 3) 01:19, August 4, 2012 (UTC)


Hey but I saw your name in the attendees list on the seminar. Probably logged in then right? So you played some badminton. Good to hear, it's my sport. Tomorrow the big olympic final, Lin Dan vs. Lee Chong Wei. Will be fun. Did you see the Olympics today, especially swimming? We won gold and bronze with the women's 50 meters! Not bad for a small country. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 22:54, August 4, 2012 (UTC)

Yes, that was some bad advertisement for badminton. But they shouldn't remove it from the program (and they won't I think). It really belongs on the Olympics in my opinion. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 00:10, August 5, 2012 (UTC)

*Sighs* Edit

Forget it. I've tried to go over the P&G's before, but I just don't seem to remember shit because I'm just that dense, I suppose. I'll just not edit from now on, it's evident I'm better off refraining from even attempting to do so. Good day, Danny. Higgey the Scotsman (talk page) 23:53, August 4, 2012 (UTC)

  • Quality over quantity. There's no point in making many edits when over a dozen had to be reverted, and these shouldn't be my "early day" edits, as you called them. I've been here over a year, was a mod for a time; I should know more by now. That being said, maybe I'll give some thought to getting better at editing. I don't know.

Zimmer Edit

Sorry for nitpicking here, but there isn't any real tangible proof that Zimmer actually works at the Institute. (There's a chance he might just work for them, but as an outside source.) The only real information we have on where he came from is that he works for the Synth Retention Bureau, which is a special police branch being run from the Commonwealth; not the actual Institute. (The Institute is played out to be entirely run by scientists. They may need outside resources to help them with the more 'Physical work'.) Maybe I'm forgetting something here, but it does seem a tad speculative to jump to the conclusion that he's a scientist at the Insitute. At any rate, I'll start up Fallout 3 and go through his dialogue trees again. Maybe I'm just not remembering something. Dragon Leon Skål! 23:52, August 5, 2012 (UTC)

Guess we'll see then! I'll be back in a while then. It's always such a pain in the ass to power run to Rivet City right from the beginning. :P Dragon Leon Skål! 23:58, August 5, 2012 (UTC)
Hmm. I'm not really sure what to think about this one. He doesn't really say anything that can be used as concrete evidence, but he words himself in a way that strongly suggests he works at the Institute as well. It's a pretty ill-defined border, so it wouldn't hurt to let that information slide. Dragon Leon Skål! 01:39, August 6, 2012 (UTC)
In this case, I believe it's safe just to use 'Occam's Razor' to help us come to a decision on this. Happy editing! Dragon Leon Skål! 01:44, August 6, 2012 (UTC)
Got to love all of those little jewels. ;) Dragon Leon Skål! 01:58, August 6, 2012 (UTC)

Big MT Edit

I understand that. My argument is that "Big Empty" is the wrong pronunciation in-game. The scientists (particularly Dr. Klein) tell the Courier that it is pronounced "Big Mountain", not "Big Empty". ~ Toci ~ Go ahead, make my day. 18:54, August 6, 2012 (UTC)

VB characters Edit

I was being a consistency Nazi. I hate when some articles have something and others don't. ~ Toci ~ Go ahead, make my day. 00:30, August 9, 2012 (UTC)

LOL. No worries. ~ Toci ~ Go ahead, make my day. 01:08, August 9, 2012 (UTC)

Test Subject Edit

I am not going to justify your message with a proper response until you can write it in a respectful way. I am more than happy to explain my edits and removals. And as an Administrator, you should know better than to attack another user just because one or more of your edits are modified. This is a wiki. What I do is business, in a sense; so don't take it personally. Dragon Leon Skål! 17:13, August 9, 2012 (UTC)
