In 2005, a Fallout Wiki named "the Vault" was set up by Ausir and DarkUnderlord, hosted on the Duck and Cover fansite vault.duckandcover.cx and later falloutvault.com. Others involved in the wiki's early development were users Fez, Dan, Spazmo, Thinkpad, Mr. Teatime, Ekarderif, Mimir, Octotron and Senornacho. In 2006, the Vault moved to the Wikia/Fandom platform.
In 2011, Ausir led a split away from Wikia/Fandom, creating a competing Fallout Wiki on Curse's Gamepedia platform, retaining "the Vault" name. The move divided the wiki community, and those who remained at Wikia reorganized into "Nukapedia" under the leadership of Agent c, Kingclyde, and Jspoelstra.
In 2018, Wikia/Fandom announced that it had acquired Curse's media assets, including gaming community websites such as Gamepedia/the Vault. In August 2019, the merging of the Vault and Nukapedia was proposed and the conversation opened via blog post. As a result of a forum discussion and vote of 34 yes, 9 no, and 5 abstaining, the merge began on November 1, 2019.
