Thanks for that. --Davey-Gravey (talk) 05:16, January 16, 2013 (UTC)


Err... why did you revert my edit?

  • I removed speculation.
  • Both outfits are identical. Both variants even have Megaton on the badge.
  • Sheriff is not a proper noun.
    • So can you please explain why I shouldn't put my changes back in? 04:36, January 17, 2013 (UTC)
Thank you for taking my edit into a second consideration. 04:43, January 17, 2013 (UTC)
I do have an account, actually. ^^ I'm just not home at the moment, and I don't like logging into many of my accounts on other people's computers. But thank you for the compliment, nevertheless. 05:11, January 17, 2013 (UTC)

Actually, I have been looking all over for a page that compares every armor in Fallout 3 and Fallout New Vegas side by side. There is no suck page that does this. How is it not a necessary addition?

Hey Ryan! To undo an archive, all you need to do is literally press undo at the diff showing the archive function. This will revert it and remove the archive page as well. --Skire (talk) 15:16, January 21, 2013 (UTC)

Yeah, that's because someone edited the TP after the archive, so it's unable to restore it to its original state. Next time, it's probably better to revert the archive, then send a message. (I learned this all from experience xD) --Skire (talk) 18:35, January 21, 2013 (UTC)

Re: Edits

No it is not how I plan to become a patroller. I really don't care. I asked, I was rejected, end of story. I find that having Vault 87 Dweller and have Vault 87 right above it makes it redundant. Also thanks for not asking why I was doing it and leaving a snotty message on my wall doesn't help, but Hey, if it bothers you then change it or block me, I really don't care because all I am doing is cleaning up redundancy. I am sorry if you feel I am being aggressive or mean here but I am trying not to but I don't like being accused of something like that.

Have a nice day.

I'm sorry about the edits, I just feel there should be no redundancy. It's not that you would want to ban me but I feel that the edits were necessary. On the patroller application I just put that out as an attempt at the position and it failed. I am not going to try again for any position. I am sorry that this went the way it did but after the request to stop with my necessary links and the recent vandal attacks I have been on edge about this page. But I am and was truly making what I felt were necessary edits.

Once again, Sorry about this.

Hi Ry,

I've set out some proposed milestones for the New User Network. These are sort of optional (in that its where everyone should be heading, but the actual criteria are just suggested and mentees/mentors are free to come up with their own together). Please let me know what you think.

Also, need to talk to you about something if you're on later tonight. Agent c (talk) 18:54, February 9, 2013 (UTC)


Hello there! I was wondering if you would sign my friends list on my page? I do consider you a friend on this site (don't know about the same from you) but it's also so I don't have to search for you throughout the site haha.

Hello, Ryan. This is a message that I will be circulating through Nukapedia's Sysops. A while back I had created a more suitable version of the Administrators' Discussion Board as an attempt to help regulate important matters that require immediate attention from the veteran users around Nukapedia. With Fallout 4 on the horizon, I would like to begin making this feature more widely embraced, so that we all are more comfortable and familiar with using it for when the time comes around that we'll need to look towards it the most. What I would like to see is for an example to be set for where certain matters should be discussed within our community, as well as creating an environment where users will know that their issues will be addressed in a timely and fair manner. What does this mean, exactly?

  • Appropriate topics should be addressed within the ADB instead of the normal fora space. Not only is the ADB a general area to condense important topics, but it is also always kept at the top for easy access. (As well as having a place within the Community Messages.)
  • All Administrators, Moderators, Patrollers, and Bureaucrats should make it a priority to check through the ADB at least once every few days or so. This is the duty of mantling the extra tools, after all, and is not too much to ask for.
  • The ADB should make an appearance within new user's welcome message.
  • If a topic within the fora has been made that is of significant importance and affects the wiki as a whole, these topics should be moved into the ADB.
    • It is my hope that these requirements will help our community become more familiar with where they should go to have their grievances and ideas properly heard. Right now, the ADB has been largely ignored because the Sysops have also largely ignored it, and this is unacceptable at times when important matters such as this one are mostly by-passed except for a couple of people. With the chaos that is soon to come with the new title(s), all I am asking is for a bit of responsibility in making sure that we all recognize issues and ideas as they come up, and making sure that we do our parts in seeing them through. Thank you for reading, and I would greatly appreciate some feed-back. Once a general consensus has been reached, possible changes will be taken care of.

Hey, dunno if you're around so I'm leaving this message on other Talk pages, but we got a vandal:

Richie9999 (talk) 07:12, March 10, 2013 (UTC)


Hey Ryan, I think it is time to close the project you made. The project is pretty much inactive and there is a rare coincidence that there is incorrect capitalized letter. So, will you close the project? Energy X Signature0 22:04, March 11, 2013 (UTC)

So now that you've posted on my talk page, and I've posted on yours. May I delete these if I wish?

Alright, plan to do that. Sorry about that slight mistake. Don't think I'm trying to like, be neighborly, unless that's allowed. But what is that great piece of audio on your talk page? I think it is very nice. If you made it I am greatly impressed! Anyways, can I remove notes from my talk page?

Thanks, --Mr Cuddleworth (talk) 05:31, March 13, 2013 (UTC)

Verification of Render Unto Caesar bug

I'll add a photo to the talk page that shows the two Benny's and my xbox 360, to show that I didn't simply use his codes to spawn him. Would that be enough verification, orwould another player have to encounter the same thing?Foxi Hooves (talk) 04:36, March 14, 2013 (UTC)


Hey, I don't know if you would want to do something about, for this edit. Paladin117>>iff bored; 04:57, March 14, 2013 (UTC)


Hey Ryan! It's been awhile since we've "spoken." I just wanted to know how you were doing and all. Drop me a quick message on my TP? =) --Skire (talk) 19:30, March 15, 2013 (UTC)


This will be a circulating message to all users that expressed their opinions over my recent discussion and vote. Please make sure to update your votes accordingly to this new information:

  • Info-box Mk.II - For those of you wanting to see an example first, an example for how the changes will look (Keep in mind that this example is in its most basic form.) can now be found here. If a positive community consensus is reached, the new design will become functional here and the community can decide from there whether the final design is appropriate or not on Nukapedia.
  • JunkRadio - I would like to share a quote from the JunkRadio designer himself: I was thinking of adding it to the top left or bottom left corner of the wiki. I can give it absolute positioning, which means that it will display on the top left, regardless of screen resolutions. If necessary, I can make it scroll down with the page as well, although this might distract users from reading the actual pages. - Mark van Alphen
    • Thank you for reading, and I'll be looking forward to gathering everyone's final opinion over these new changes. Due to the overwhelming support so far for all three changes, only needing minor points to update them for clarity, the vote will continue as normal, and will end on the 23rd as scheduled. If you would like to dispute this, please leave your concerns and reasons behind them over my talk-page. Happy editing! ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 17:03, March 20, 2013 (UTC)

My PC's specs

Here they are. It's a folder from a local store. I had to be fast to get it, they are rather cheap in prize for the great quality you get, so popular. Browse through it, the computer's halfway through. I got both PC and monitor on the page. I still had a 4:3 ratio 1280*1024; now I have a 16:9, 1920*1080.

My talk page message

Hey, that anon that edited my talk page status was actually me. Sorry, it's the first page I see and I didn't see that I wasn't signed in, I don't know how that happened.

Forum discussion

Hello Ryan. This is a message I will be rotating among Nukapedia's sysops and regular contributors. I would like your input on this forum. In an attempt to remove redundancy and confusion, I have proposed some tweaks to user rights, including the elimination of the moderator position. Thanks for your time, and let me know if you have any questions. FollowersApocalypseLogonihil novi sub sole 09:26, March 31, 2013 (UTC)

Gunny has called a straw poll to determine whether we move forward with some user rights changes. Your input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time. FollowersApocalypseLogonihil novi sub sole 20:16, April 3, 2013 (UTC)


Hi Ry,

Just on the back of a few things we've been talking about recently.

I don't think its a big secret that with Theo going inactive, we have a bit of a hole when it comes to CSS and Bots. I'm thinking this might be a bit of an opportunity to try and get someone "trained". Problem of course is getting a teacher.

Thinking this is where our contacts could come in handy. I don't have much time to pick it up, but wondering if this might be what you've been looking for for a while. Is it an area you might be interested in picking up?

Agent c (talk) 01:16, April 2, 2013 (UTC)

Bot work

I have the first job for your bot when it's ready. Easy one to start with. I need it to run over [[Category:Fallout 3 weapons]] and [[Category:Fallout: New Vegas weapons]] and check the infobox parameter | value= for any dollar signs ($). If there are any, remove them, please, as the template now inserts them automatically. Let me know if you have any questions. The Gunny  380px-USMC-E7 svg 00:36, April 3, 2013 (UTC)

It's quite possible that there were none. Most of those extra $ were added to the BOS and tactics pages. We just needed to make sure there were none of the FO3 and FNV pages. I figured it would be a good test run for you. Thanks for doing that. The Gunny  380px-USMC-E7 svg 19:34, April 3, 2013 (UTC)
Right now, I can't think of anything category-wise. Maybe ask J or Bleep if they need bot stuff. If you need to practice, you could run it over a small category, make some changes, and then run it back over to revert the changes. You're welcome to practice using it over at my Dead is Dead wiki, if you need to. The Gunny  380px-USMC-E7 svg 00:25, April 4, 2013 (UTC)

Wanted to extend my appreciation over you taking the mantel of bot responsibilities. Congratulations on getting it to work! I attempted to work with Python before, with, ah, mixed results. (See: GarouxBot) ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 00:27, April 4, 2013 (UTC)

Looking forward to seeing its capabilities here. Have you worked with bots much before? Or was this just something you threw together with little prior experience? Because with the latter, then I have to say that I'm impressed. ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 00:34, April 4, 2013 (UTC)
Then I'm impressed. Wish I was code savvy enough to pick up on at least the basics after only a few hours. Maybe in the future I'll try my hands at it again. ;) For now, I wish you luck and that it doesn't go rogue on us! ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 00:42, April 4, 2013 (UTC)

Well, I've heard of Cy-Bear, but who's ever heard of a Robot Moose? Agent c (talk) 01:05, April 4, 2013 (UTC)


You could change favour into favor on all pages. Favor is proper American right? Jspoel Speech Jspoel 23:50, April 4, 2013 (UTC)

Hey Bears, when you get the chance could I get you to go through and update User:-bleep196-/sandbox2_Bug_Charts and User:-bleep196-/Sandbox3_Bug_Charts. Theo put them together originally, and since he left I haven't had anyone updating them. ---bleep196- (talk) 23:54, April 4, 2013 (UTC)
That and the charts need to be updated to reflect which articles have bugs at all, they tend to fluctuate as users add bugs, or they get removed. ---bleep196- (talk) 00:31, April 5, 2013 (UTC)
Ok thanks. If I can think of another run I'll let you know! Jspoel Speech Jspoel 00:46, April 5, 2013 (UTC)
That actually sounds like a good idea, only problem I can see with it is that people might come in later and add bugs to completed articles. ---bleep196- (talk) 17:05, April 5, 2013 (UTC)
Hmmm...perhaps we need to have a separate Category created for pages that have all bugs verified, the issue there is that we would have to go page to page, unless we could code a bot to determine whether or not all the bugs on a page are verified based on the presence or absence of both forms of the verify template. ---bleep196- (talk) 23:42, April 5, 2013 (UTC)
Almost all Gameplay articles, this includes quests, items, characters, locations, skills, traits, perks, factions, creatures, and robots and computers. ---bleep196- (talk) 21:06, April 7, 2013 (UTC)

Russ/VB Char images

Hey Bears, I was just writing to let you know that I reverted you edit to Russ' page as well as why. A couple months ago, I went on an edit spree checking VB char pages against the Design Docs for images of the char in question if it needed one, removing a mess of image needed templates on the way as no images existed for many of the chars and of course. If there's no image in a VB character's infobox and no image needed template that's cause there isn't one, except for on the off chance that I missed one, but such is not the case with Russ, or at least not as far I was able to find at the time. Richie9999 (talk) 08:52, April 6, 2013 (UTC)

Check user

Ryan, I've already checked these IPs. The accounts both edit from the same IP. I discussed this with the user in question and it was stated that the user is related to the other, and often accesses the wiki from his relative's house. How true this is, I have no way of verifying. We have to remember, though, that our/wikia policies on multiple accounts only applies to those "abusing" multiple accounts. This *could* be a broad, or narrow term, depending on how one defines "abuse". To date, we have acted on this policy with users that use a second account to evade blocks/bans. Even if we find they are the same user, we would have to see some kind of "abuse" with the second account to act. The Gunny  380px-USMC-E7 svg 14:51, April 7, 2013 (UTC)

Don't know what happened in chat but it broke. Appears the story could be true, address comes from the country we discussed in chat. Just keep an eye on it, no action is needed at this time I think. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 20:03, April 7, 2013 (UTC)

Bug section category

You read my post to bleep right? Think it's better to create a Bug section incomplete category instead of a Bug sections complete category. That way you'll know what needs work instead of an overview what is done. Before you start I'd like to see a test run of a few pages. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 21:48, April 7, 2013 (UTC)


Hey Ry,

When you have a chance, can you move everything out of [[Category:The Vault news]] and stick it in [[Category:Wiki news digests]] instead? Ta. Agent c (talk) 20:21, April 9, 2013 (UTC)

Actually if you kill the escort infamy with freeside will be gained. get your facts right! I tested it. --DeathJaww (talk) 06:38, April 10, 2013 (UTC)


Everything is fine over here. I will work itself out tomorrow again, I'm sure. Not to worry. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 21:58, April 12, 2013 (UTC)


I'm gonna wait until we decide whether to make the cats now. If we do, we'll be able to view the completed templates better. I'll let you know when we can go ahead and start doing more. The Gunny  380px-USMC-E7 svg 01:40, April 14, 2013 (UTC)

OK, we're gonna go ahead and start making some of those templates. You can see the list in my sandbox. I'm gonna get all the create article ones taken care of. You want to start on some empty nav boxes? We have to be real careful which ones we create, as we don't want to create a ton of red linked pages and extra categories. Let's just go ahead and create them in the template space, make sure you create the template doc, if it needs one, and create any category pages that need to be done with the proper category templates ({{CategoryTOC}} and {{Catmore}}) as required.

You don't scare me. i'll keep changing it! --DeathJaww (talk) 06:56, April 14, 2013 (UTC)

Instances of 2nd Person Terminology

Hello. I followed the discussion and vote to eliminate 2nd person from the Wiki and saw your list Instances_of_2nd_Person_Terminology linked. I even fixed #1 on the list! Yay! So I was thinking, maybe it would be a good idea to re-run the bot monthly, or every couple of weeks, or whatever interval seems good, and update that page to see progress on the clean-up effort. Would that be something you would consider? --FFIX (talk) 15:36, April 21, 2013 (UTC)

Sorry 'bout that. I came on later, but you'd already gone. I was gonna see if you'd run the bot over all the redirects in the Fallout Wiki namespace in Category:Shortcuts and change all instances of VA: to FW:. Skire did a bunch with his AWB, but I'm not sure if they're done yet. Maybe check and see where he left off (Special:Contributions/Skire bot) and see if he got the whole category done yet. The Gunny  380px-USMC-E7 svg 19:35, May 1, 2013 (UTC)

I read the bloody thing already. Thing is, as a general guideline it's okay. BUT this is a specific case with specific condition. I stated in Talk page of that, it's important in the sense if you follow game dev's recommendation.

But if you want to rigidly follow your guideline, fine. I dont particularly feel like getting into a pissing match with you gentlemen here. Leaving thing in the Talk page is enough for me.Laclongquan (talk) 09:59, May 5, 2013 (UTC)

You had some interesting points... But I don't want anyone to defend themselves or admit any mistakes because this is supposed to be a depersonalised thing... Its about how do we deal with similar situations rathter than who said what... There were a fair few things that happened yesterday that shouldn't have, and the ban at the end in my view wasnt the worst of it.

Hey, Got a vandal

Richie9999 (talk) 04:39, May 9, 2013 (UTC)

Re: Character Models

There's no question that character models are reused in both those games; however, I still feel that this is a notable example. The prospectors use the model of the top three characters (in terms of dialogue, AI packages, and so on) and that's just three of them. All other times, reused models are found on characters that play much small parts such as Officer Richards and Officer Armstrong who both have minor roles and the same model.

If you can give me an example of a reused model of this proportion in which the models of the major game characters are used, then I'd gladly accept that the note is unnecessary. I can also provide the base id and editor id of the models I'm talking about if you want me to. 01:00, May 23, 2013 (UTC)

Hey, Burrs. Just giving you a heads up that there may be a number of inactive projects that we'll be closing down soon. We might need a bot to run over the pages linked to those project's templates, if there are any. I'll have to investigate which ones have template links first. If you haven't seen the list of inactive project pending closure, you can see them at Forum:Cleaning up the projects page. The Gunny  380px-USMC-E7 svg 19:38, May 23, 2013 (UTC)
