Newport Edit

I've been in Rhode Island checking everything out. A local family friend was showing us where to go, where to avoid, how to avoid traffic, etc. earlier today. It's been fun. I report to NAVSTA Newport on the 22nd. I went to the Newport Creamery today, per your recommendation. Holy hell. I know where I'll be going back to. Every restaurant I've been to here has been amazing. I think I'm going to love it here. Hope all is well. Navy athletics Don't give up the ship! Bill the goat 01:37, July 21, 2014 (UTC)

Help on the German wiki requestedEdit

Gunny, there is a problem on the German wiki with the perk template. It's called Extra there. The game headers don't appear so there's a lot of data but no game visible where it refers to (they're using the game parameter instead of the games parameter. Can you find what causes it? They're using our templates (mostly). Jspoel Speech Jspoel 15:40, August 13, 2014 (UTC)

Ajax RC meets Image preloader and stops working Edit

Hi Gunny, perhaps you already noticed the problem on the main page with the thumbnails, not that it affects only that, no, apparently also the template for the survey, as far as I was watching it.

The pictures and the poll or template for this are, apparently, that the influenced by the AJAX RC script for automatic update of recent changes to the said phenomena occur, but I'm unsure as to whether it is true.

Now I had tested another script, which loads the thumbnails on the main page, so it will cause the images are loaded and displayed. Doing it even with varying functions, so even if you use other variables or functions, is probably script across all normal and should not do much more to the point, but it gets so seemingly in conflict with Ajax RC. Would it be possible both scripts to see times and to unite if necessary, so that this function also, but independently of the other executes without incurring the conflicts? I appoint you there as admin, so you can experiment with the global js file, where the scripts are located. Kind regards, Alessio79 (talk) 13:43, September 6, 2014 (UTC)

Templates for the Fallout Wiki PT Edit

Hi, Gunny! It's been a long while!

I'm coming here because I'm having trouble making the Games template work over on the Portuguese Fallout Wiki. We're revamping some articles, improving language and overall patterns, and I can't seem to make them work (I've tried importing the template and documentation from here over to the template page there, no luck). I put them on a certain page, then it doesn't even show up. Do you have any idea what problem would cause that?

Cheers, --C'n-Frankie -ArroyoTalk 06:14, August 18, 2014 (UTC)

Thanks a lot, Gunny. It is really helpful, and it makes sense to me why I was doing everything wrong. :-)
I've got some doubts though:
I tried copying over the files, but it didn't work. Do I have to copy only the "Title icons" sections of the js and ccs pages, or the whole pages? Also: if I copy the whole pages, will there be any negative change in the inner workings of the wiki? And one last thing: when I access the template and abb pages, the list of icons for each game picture just shows the names of the files (FO2_icon.png, for example), and not the thumbnails themselves. Does that mean that I have to upload each and every icon to the wiki? Because I could swear that the wiki had all of them ready. --C'n-Frankie -ArroyoTalk 18:31, August 20, 2014 (UTC)

Hey, Gunny, you there? I need some assistance with .css coding, so could you come to the chat? Energy X 10:24, August 26, 2014 (UTC)

CodeEdit

Hey Gunny, I noticed that we do have the modified pop-up for new messages (like the one you got when I published this message). There is a MediaWiki page, but I assume there is a .css code that supports it. If it is, which one is it? Energy X 23:16, September 2, 2014 (UTC)

Edit

There seems to be a bit of unrest over a detail at the Strategic Nuclear Moose, and I figure we should discuss it personally. The concern I am hearing is that you and perhaps a few others are not happy over the fact that we do not have a Nukapedia banner on our front-page. It needs to be understood, when taking this matter into account, that like most websites, we dedicate a single and very public page towards affiliate websites and communities. Our affiliation page is not hidden, it is not a sub-tab/page, and it is not a page that you have to hunt down. The link to it can be found on 98% of our pages, and is right there in our top-navigation bar, as a main-tab, which means the link to that page is essentially in all of our Patrons' faces when they access our site.

We are hesitant to add banners onto the front-page, because our website is strictly against advertisement of any sort, except through very well defined pages, so that our Patrons will not feel betrayed in that we are shoving external sources down their throats. If there is a solution or compromise that we can come to, then I am more than happy to discuss matters with the offended parties. However, please keep in mind that I still feel as if our affiliate main-page is more than fair, especially in light of the fact that our affiliate banner is located at the near the very bottom of the front-page here on Nukapedia. So those that come to Nukapedia, will only see our banner if they happen to visit the main-page, and then only if they scroll all the way to the bottom.

On our website, all affiliation information over Nukapedia can be located on every page except certain maintenance pages. Please let me know your thoughts on the matter, as I am hoping to put this matter behind us so that we may move on. ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 00:21, September 25, 2014 (UTC)

I need to talk to you about an incident that if my foggy mind remembers right you might have seen the end of last night. I'm not happy with what happened and the way some others handled it, and I think we need to change some stuff, but I dont even know where to begin. Can you ping me when you get on? Thanks.

Munition templates on the German wikiEdit

Gunny, I have a challenge for you over at the German wiki. The munition templates don't work there. You think you're able to make it to work? Jspoel Speech Jspoel 18:02, November 25, 2014 (UTC)

Well, the gamebryo one seems to work. The Fo1 template doesn't display images. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 18:51, November 25, 2014 (UTC)
When you look at the 10mm page there, you can see it doesn't work, and some of it also shows on your sandbox. Because where are all the parameters? Ammotype, shotsize don't show, only the image in your sandbox does. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 22:59, November 26, 2014 (UTC)

ResponseEdit

You should know something about me: I am a very passionate person. I have always been passionate, and it has led me to success all throughout my life. Whether it was band, JROTC, helping run an animal clinic, being a part of a relief mission out in Africa, traveling around Scandinavia, I have never giving up, regardless of what life has thrown at me.

And you know what? Sometimes it is not worth it. Sometimes I am made so miserable, that I fall into depression. I hold onto everything so tightly, that I lose part of myself when I lose anything. But it is also fulfilling, and it fills me with pride to know that I never give up, and that I never let the past change my convictions.

Nukapedia has not been the worst I have had to weather through. But I would be lying if I denied that Nukapedia has not challenged me, and motivated me to better myself in certain aspects of my personality. But do you know what I see in myself here? I see someone that goes up to newer users, to help make them feel as welcome and comfortable as possible. When other users gang up on them, especially the leadership, I recognize my compassion in trying to calm them, and help them know that there are friends instead of antagonists.

I recognize that when I got a mentee, my accomplishments were never noted, even though I worked harder than any other mentor, and I set up a vigorous training process, and gave them confidence to become better editors. I recognize that when this wiki was attacked, I protected it with all of my heart. I corrected malicious lies about us that were spread on other sites. I made sure to tell NMA to correct our link, because it was secretly linking to The Vault. I even recognize the fact that even though I have gone far and beyond normal editing, to clear our stubs, get the wiki spotlighted, to add numerous community templates that are used in almost every blog we see today, that my work will be ignored and forgotten.

And the funny part is, I recognize that I am disliked and even hated by many, simply for trying to protect them, like when I had my rights removed because I was trying to protect a user that was revealing personal information on this site that could have gotten them into serious trouble.

But ultimately, that does not matter. I do care for this wiki. I do care for its editors, viewers and chatters, even when they do not care for me. And I stick around because of that. Because just like family, I am not going to abandon the wiki all because I am going through a rough patch.

But there is a problem that I need to recognize. It has gotten to the point, where I find myself having to defend myself almost 90% of the time. Every action I make, is scrutinized beyond belief, and there are users here that are willing to lie about me, and are just waiting to jump all over me for anything I do. And I have let that affect me too much. It has affected my work, and I am not longer able to pay as much attention to the newer users as I once did.

So no. I am not going to leave the wiki. I am not going to act like you, and project my failures onto others as an excuse for my actions. I recognize that I have done controversial things which will take time to recover from, just as you need to recognize that you have done controversial things that have made you into the user you are today. That is just how it is. My admin days are long gone. For now, even my editing days are long gone. But know that my passion has never gone, and I will know when the day naturally comes, in which I leave this wiki and its community for good.—Preceding unsigned comment added by GarouxBloodline (talkcontribs). Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

I suppose it could be seen that way. I have always been fully willing to admit that I have an ego, and that I am confident in most everything that I do. But do not mistake that for false entitlement, and do not mistake that a false sense of superiority. I speak boldly, not because I feel that I am better than anyone else, or that my ideas and opinions are better than other ideas and opinions. I speak boldly, because I know in the world we live in today, people choose not to have a voice. I know that if I want to be even the slightest influence, that I need to actually use my voice, and get my opinions out there for consideration.
I know that a lot of people mistake my boldness, for something else entirely. But that is not something that I can realistically burden onto myself, and all I can strive for, is that my actions will continue to prove to those that listen and keep their eyes open, that I am only doing what I personally see as the bigger picture. And I do strive for what I perceive as the bigger picture, although I fully understand that I do not hold an objective truth for the wiki to wholly rally behind.
And that is a bit of important history about me that many users here conveniently forget. I am an open-minded person. I can also be stubborn, but I am always willing to listen to others. All it takes is a simple look through my contributions over the years, and this becomes evident beyond my own words. Even though I knew that Gauzz was recruiting users to leave Nukapedia in a spiteful manner, and I was vindicated later when Broc came back and admitted it in chat, I still kept an open-mind, listened to everyone involved, and ultimately decided that it was best to let it go. My archives are full of messages, expressing gratefulness towards the fact that I am willing to compromise, or even abandon what I personally see as best, from users such as Guardian (Ci).
I mention that history, because I am fully aware that not everything I want, is going to be what the wiki wants. I am always looking for compromise. I am always willing to work with others. And even though I remember the past, and I learn from that past, I do not let the past dictate how I see everyone on this wiki. You lied to Clyde, and tried to get him to take action against me over locked articles. You even took the chat, trying to find a rule loophole in order to ban me or have my rights removed, all because Theo had a fit and left the wiki because of my valid criticism. I remember these things, I will never forget, and they help me understand what I can expect in the future. But when we are not in an incident together, you cannot deny that I speak to you in a civil and respectful manner. You see that I genuinely want to have conversations with you, and that I make sure that you see my appreciation whenever you help me with something.
So people do see me as an asshole at times, and I can understand that. I can be abrasive. I can be stubborn. But I am also caring. I am compassionate for all users here, and I only react badly whenever I am spoken down to, or whenever I am threatened. I can give you my word, as Utopian as it is, that if the hate stopped, and users actually tried to talk with my civilly, or points out whenever I do something wrong instead of gossiping in chat, and turning my simple mistakes into huge monstrosities, that I would not have the reputation that I have today.
I really want you to think on what I said here. I do not like making myself seen as a victim, as I have always refused to see myself as a victim. I do not look for sympathy, as I understand that not everything I do will please everyone. The only thing I want, is to be allowed to continue my work as I did in the old days. Back when I did not have to spend a year trying to convince the community to allow me the privilege of creating an article over one of the most important pieces of established lore in Fallout. Back when I did not have to fear rightfully criticizing a popular user without becoming an outcast. Back when my friends could stick up for me without being harassed, such as with Nate now having the nickname "Leon's spy", all because he stood up for me when vicious things were being said about me in PM. The days when I could actually create a forum, without an administrator threatening to abuse his powers by threatening to lock a forum that I have been pouring hard work into for months.

And that is the truth. I recognize that I used to be one of the most prominent editors, and how much I have done for this wiki. But I do recognize that this is not my wiki, and that not everything I want should become reality. It should be recognized, too, from everyone else, that I have never wanted this to be my wiki. I gave up my rights the very moment I thought I could no longer be a proper leader for Nukapedia. I have always been willing to compromise, and I have even reversed decisions that I knew were right.

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.

I think you can skip Tactics, Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel, Van Buren and Canceled Games for the bot. We hardly get any talkpage comments on those pages anymore. Try to avoid adding wrong game messages to talkpages, like you just explained to Agent c.

MessageEdit

Hi, so i did look at the wiki for the FO:BoS because i left my consul for a while and came back to see that my pause menu had changed i hadn't seen it before so i looked it up on the wiki, and found it wasn't there and there was no Notes section on the wiki so i tried looking it up directly, but no results. I don't know how to put a Notes section on the wiki or even if it would go there or somewhere else, so I wanted to ask you first to see how to do it for future purposes and for the current predicament.


The thing i found was about 15 min in the pause menu without touching the controller the option screen and the character screen turn black, as green transparent nukes fall down the screen. I did not see anything on it but i might be wrong. If you can help me it would be nice,but if your too busy i understand.

Thanks,

Weapon projectEdit

I've been postponing this as this has been weighing on me rather heavily, but now you're back, I need to react. I have my worries about this project. It's become very complex to probably everyone except you. I think most people think when it comes to weapons you know best, and will trust your approach without seeing the entire scope. And you do know the most about weapons. You come from a military background and it shows. But most everyone else doesn't have that background. To mark a few things myself, creating singular weapon disambig pages changes the consistency we have with item pages. Consumables, misc items, armor and clothing; they are all on singular named overview pages using the gamearticlelist. People search for example for 10mm pistol before the plural 10mm pistols and these weapon disambig pages (who now would acquire prime position when searching) are very different compared to the overview pages; bland and contain less information. And I'm worried it's a lot of the same on the disambig vs overview page. It's strange to see the rest of the overview pages singular, and the weapon ones plural. You're planning so many (new) weapon-type terms that lose people the overview I think. You're asking users to comment on the project page its talkpage, but the only I expect a reaction from is Richie. He appears to see what you have in mind. Many others trust your good judgment in it I think. I'm not sure how to continue on this; you probably curse me right now, and I can understand that after all this work. But I hope you can take a step back and have another look at it from someone who isn't an weapon-expert. Do we need this into such detail? You started this to get the Weapon overview page updated, can we look for a more careful, less drastic, approach? Jspoel Speech Jspoel 00:08, February 25, 2015 (UTC)

Weapon projectEdit

One of the things I have a problem with is the way we're now approaching the (weapon) overview pages. These item overviewpages (with the gamearticle and -list) were never intended to be plural. Only gamespanning pages are plural, most everything else not (there may be a few exceptions). I've given that policy another read and it states: "Overview articles should be named "<full game name> <subject in plural>" (e.g. "Fallout 2 organizations")" The way "overview" is used here isn't meant to apply to item overview pages in this case, but to gamespanning overview pages. You can see it in the <full game name> and the example, Fallout 2 organizations. As I see the policy meant, we have two types of overview pages, game overview pages (plural) and singular item overview pages (for items). The overview pages have worked well in singular form for years and now you're moving these important weapon overviews to a place of less profile, and it will change the consistency we have with other items. Consumables, armor, misc items, they all are on singular overview pages, where I think they should stay. Like I said before, now we're getting bland disambig pages taking over the important position over from overview pages. There's going to be redundancy, like just happened for the dynamite or plastic explosives page. For example, we have the dynamite page and the dynamite (disambiguation) page where the latter has one item less. That's really not efficient. Or now I'm seeing the Molotov cocktail disambig with a lot of distracting icons, and the overview page which has pretty much the same content, but looks a lot better and has more (background) info. The efficiency, clarity and easy of finding what you look for becomes lost. I like to have one overview, and getting plenty of result with it. People will spot quickly enough what they look for and see similar items along with it. Another problem is that when people land on a disambig page they won't spot the pluralized overview page that easily anymore (you have to click a link) or know it's even there (plural pages come much further down the search bar and often even won't show up), while it has far more information. You have the community's support but I think it is primarily based on people knowing of your weapon insight and knowledge. They don't see everything you're envisioning. You've made it that complex you're the only one completely understanding it (and can work on it efficiently), you can see it in some of the responses on the blog or on the project's talkpage. You've made it that large I'm also having problems understanding it, you have to dig through it for a few hours and people are not going to do that. They trust your weapon knowledge, see your thoroughness and give the ok. Because I'm not seeing everything, and surely don't have your weapon expertise (I'm not really that much into weapons to be honest), I haven't been able to give good arguments. Now you're making some progress, it's becoming all a bit clearer. Don't get me wrong, I appreciate the work you've put into it, but I'm seeing changes on a large scale that worry me. Try to put yourself in my place for a moment. I've worked four years for many hours a day on this wiki and are responsible for a lot of its content. It's become sort of a home and I care for it. Now I see a major change coming, and I feel a large part of it will be for the worse for reasons I explained earlier. There's also some good that can come from it, like the larger, new overview pages or some splitting (like the grenades page) but as it is now it's just too much. From what I can see now, I would suggest getting rid of the weapon disambig pages as much as possible (disambig pages have a more multi-purpose than overview pages; they serve more for a general overview of things like Phoenix and apply to most everything that has that word in it. Overviewpages only apply to items) and (mostly) reinstate the overviews to singular. You could almost consider a search result as the disambig page actually. That's about where I'm standing. Think also asking the community for an evaluation after maybe some more work is done can be an option to see if we want to continue this way. I know this probably will get you frustrated or mad after putting so much work in it, but I'm in an important position and I honestly have my concerns. Hope you can do something with what I said.

Yes, I am thinking that the overview pages are close enough. Some weapons are missing there, but not even that many (in comparison to those that are listed). We don't have to necessarily follow Wikipedia's guidelines for disambiguating. But appearantly, the community wants it for the weapons. I don't have a real answer to your disambig question as I personally don't want to choose either. Then keep the current approach I reckon, and add (disambiguation) to the few pages that need them.
