Welcome, fellow Vault Dwellers, to the Vault Academy, proud subsidiary of the New User Network. At the Vault Academy, wiki users, both new and veteran, will have the opportunity to form bonds with each other and learn valuable skills at the same time. If interested, check out the available training programs below.

The Vault Academy recognizes all aspects of contributing and our training programs will cater to each facet of the wiki with mentors specializing in one or multiple different schools of training. No program is a prerequisite for another, but a general understanding of editing is beneficial before entering any program other than general editing. Users can join multiple programs at the same time, and there are no time requirements or deadlines.

General editing fundamentals are of the utmost importance from one's first edit onwards. Are you brand new to the wiki? General editing is a great place to start, and through the lessons will introduce mentees to the other parts of the community and other training opportunities that go along with those parts.

Jumping into editing is intimidating at times, so the general editing program aims to provide a stress-free environment in which new users can learn the basics, former users can brush up on current format norms, and overall providing a training regiment that will set editors up for future success by learning:

  • Formatting, navigation, page management
  • Article and image categorization
  • Policies and guidelines, user rights
  • User pages, talk pages, blogs, forums
  • Icons, links, signatures, preferences
  • Referencing, source texts, game data
  • Edit summaries and user conduct

The advanced editing lessons are based on a detailed review of how templates are constructed, how the wiki is maintained, and tools we can use to automate repetitive processes.


  • Template creation
  • Interwiki images
  • Talk page archiving
  • Verify and bugs
  • Attention needed
  • Reference archiving
  • Table format

  • Transclusions
  • Bots and AWB

Community training is about connecting with the group that you wish to represent and being able to foster a healthy and friendly environment while leading it. This is done via two part of the Fallout Wiki, including:


  • Discussions Moderation: Also known as /d, a quickly-growing social medium found across the Fandom network, instilling a casual and fast-paced environment for those looking to meet fellow Fallout fans. Mentors in this program will teach /d users how to create high-quality posts, how to prepare for upcoming changes to the /d platform, and provide the knowledge they'll need should they ever wish to help moderate and lead their newly acquired friends as Discussions Moderators.
  • Discord Chat Moderation: Another social medium for the Fallout wiki, Discord is where our users can gather around and talk freely, without the normal constraints of the mainspace wiki. Mentors are tasked with making chatters feel welcome, seeking feedback from the Discord community on how to improve upon the experience, and helping to learn the ropes in preparation to become Chat Moderators. Additional fundamentals include:
    • Successfully defusing and resolving disputes
    • Participating as either a project lead or as a TVA mentor
    • Seeing through both a forum discussion and vote
