Forums: Index > Wiki discussion > A week to go - calling all hands

Only a week to go till the release of our long awaited Fallout 4! In the past few days some new videos have emerged with plenty of new information. There's already a lot of wikiwork to do and I was wondering what available time (extra user-rights holder) users will have available once the game is released. At the moment it's mainly me and Energy X, and obviously I'm hoping for assistance, especially from the more experienced users. We can't do it properly with just a handful of users.

As of right now I don't know for sure how available I will be when Fallout 4 is released. November 10th, I leave on vacation to Florida. I'm reasonably certain that the house I'm going to will have internet access, I know it has a TV and I plan on bringing my Xbox One and Fallout 4. Depending on what's available I should be able to edit, patrol, and deal with Vandals as needed during the nights. Richie9999 (talk) 19:04, November 3, 2015 (UTC)

Still surprised nobody else edits the articles. Whether they are not interested or just lazy, I can't say. But some things are certain: the infoboxes need to be updated and a bot to be run to remove excess templates (like the durability table). ☢ Energy X ☣ 22:43, November 3, 2015 (UTC)

In my case, I'm working two jobs. I'm here when I get the time and a decent amount of the time I have to spare on weekdays is spent patrolling, checking edits, etc. Also, I don't have a bot, nor do I really know how to create one. 15:49, November 4, 2015 (UTC)
I only have a limited amount of time available each day to patrol and respond to requests. Real life is leaving me little time right now to do much more. Just squeezing in time to play the new game is going to be difficult.I will contribute as I can, but I will place a priority on the things that need my attention the most, templates and whatnot, and will probably delay any mainspace editing until the editor comes out, if I can find the time to dig into that. The Gunny  UserGunny chevrons 22:44, November 4, 2015 (UTC)
I've been doing an assload of patrolling and fixing edits lately. I will be getting the game later than most as real life bills trump FO4 (sigh and sadface). After I get it I will be playing it for a bit but as I progress I will make my edits and begin the process of heavy handed enforcing of vandals etc. I appreciate the effort put forth by Peace and Richie, they have been helping immensely with patrolling. A side note for those who chill in chat. Open a side window and do some patrolling. I'm sure you have a side window open to other interwebnet pages no? Thanks again.--Kingclyde (talk) 22:58, November 4, 2015 (UTC)
I was going to patrol and help fix edits but now that you have asked it of me... naw B)

I am also concerned about individuals that might've appeared by now, like GhostAvatar, Itachou, Gothemasticator and many more. We are close to the airing date, yet still, you'd expect they would be aware of the game. ☢ Energy X ☣ 20:22, November 8, 2015 (UTC)

It may be an issue of not being interested in actively editing on a wiki Energy. That or they may move to the Vault to edit, where they will be more familiar with the environment and editing tools. Keep in mind a lot has changed since they really stopped editing, at least in the case of Ghost and Goth. ---bleep196- (talk) 18:52, November 10, 2015 (UTC)
