ChatEdit

Hm, are you able to come to the chat in Tuesday to Wednesday? It seems I will be available in the chat then (will tell you why). Energy X 22:52, June 8, 2014 (UTC)

BC Endorsement Policy Edit

As the policy states, we as administrators reserve the right to veto a policy change if we choose to do so. On the endorsements referendum, we could not reach an absolute majority on whether or not bureaucrats can endorse and what restrictions they would have/would not have if they could. Only a (and this is debatable) plurality was reached, and it is looking like users are deciding to forgo continuing the debate and deny bureaucrats (sysops) the right to endorse. Thus, I am making a polite attempt to gain supporters for a veto of this policy change. I am sending you this message because you voted in favor of bureaucrat endorsement. In closing, I would like to ask the following question: Can I count on your support in a veto of this policy change? Thank you for your consideration. Navy athletics Don't give up the ship! Bill the goat 05:40, June 14, 2014 (UTC)

In light of Leon pointing out a flaw in my message, allow me to clarify why I am doing this: I believe the policy change to be unfair on the grounds that it is a split vote. In total, 10 users voted for options 2 and 3 (both of which allow bureaucrats to endorse; 4 users voted for option 2, which places restrictions on that right), which tallies to 10 users in support of bureaucrat endorsement, and 8 users voted for option 1, which opposes the right of endorsement. Thus, the side in support of bureaucrat endorsement was split. The veto policy states that vetoes can be used for valid reasons. I cite my reason as improper procedure. See the referendum results for further clarification. Navy athletics Don't give up the ship! Bill the goat 06:16, June 14, 2014 (UTC)
I'm not very wordy. That is a much better reason than what I could come up with. That makes three of us. Navy athletics Don't give up the ship! Bill the goat 23:47, June 14, 2014 (UTC)

Re: Transclude Edit

Thanks very much! I realized then that the Transcluded article was at "BB gun", which was why I couldn't edit the BTS from the weapon pages... Either anyone can make a mistake, or I'm unfortunate. --Breakin'Benny (talk) 11:31, June 20, 2014 (UTC)

BlockEdit

Hey, a user came to report you about Wolf Nightingale. You say you blocked Wolf for saying something about the wrong age, but that user claims that lying about age is not a violation of Terms of Use. Despite Wolf's dirty language, perhaps the block can be reduced? Energy X 13:55, June 27, 2014 (UTC)

Chat Edit

I decided to keep chat open last night to log it if anything happened. I was running on one hour of sleep yesterday, so I went to bed much earlier than usual. I noticed you tried to get my attention. Did you need something? Navy athletics Don't give up the ship! Bill the goat 17:39, June 28, 2014 (UTC)

Arbitrary HeaderEdit

Hello, I was just wondering if there was any particular reason that you removed an edit I made to the page for The Screams of Brahmin (Quest). The edit in question had edit number 2159177. It was a perfectly reasonable and logical edit, with information that should have been painfully obvious to anyone with even the most basic knowledge of the incredibly famous stories of Beowulf and Grendel; frankly, I was appalled that no one had been knowledgeable enough to make the edit themselves--in fact, I created my Wiki profile for the express purpose of sharing this logical and well-reasoned "speculation."

Sincerely yours, --Grudel (talk) 10:59, June 29, 2014 (UTC)

P.S. I am sorry if I was a bit short with this message, I have insomnia and wrote this message at 3:53 A.M. where I live, and since my computer is on the fritz and is prone to restarting without any warning, this is the second time I have written this message. Also, sorry if I messed up with the signature; I have never done this before, and so I am pretty sure I found some way to screw up.

Skill BooksEdit

Can you hold off reverting J's changes? I talked to him about undoing his edits earlier, and I'm just waiting for him to respond. I don't want to go behind his back and change everything before he gets a chance to respond. 69.l25 (talk) 19:02, July 7, 2014 (UTC)

This is not core work or really constructive. It's nitpicking. And I've seen far too much of it in the past 2,5 years since we lost the content making admins. I'm tired of it, this post I sent to 69 was a build up leading to it. As bureaucrat, main editor and someone who has done the most to improve pages in the time after the split, I think I have a main say in these matters. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 19:52, July 7, 2014 (UTC)

Clearing up the situation Edit

Hey! Please excuse my late response, I've been on vacation. Thank you for clearing up the situation with Wolf! I'm happy this situation has gotten cleared up, and you and Energy both have my appreciation for getting to the bottom of this. The St of luck in your guys' endeavors!

CommentEdit

I know that the Followers do not support any violence, but if you could overlook that and comment on the Hole's current fight? Just leave the comment undereath, here. The fight is Arcade vs. Driver Nephi. Energy X 13:03, July 15, 2014 (UTC)

RE: SGP Edit

It has recently come to my awareness that the Forum:Standardized Guidance Project doesn't meet the criterion for a forum under the Forum:Wiki proposals and applications detailed as:

This forum is for formal votes on user rights requests and proposals regarding the wiki that have completed the discussion process in Forum:Wiki discussion.

Requests to move the forum to a more proper location such a blog or a discussion forum have been met with resistance and I require an admin's discretionary action. I've come to you because I believe you to be unbiased.

I thank you for any time you are willing to offer and hope this gets resolved quickly. --The Ever Ruler (talk) 21:08, July 28, 2014 (UTC)

I am fine with my forum being moved to the discussion forum, although I personally feel the current forum mine is under is more appropriate, since it focuses on proposing guides towards the community. I will mention, though, that I do not want my forum to become a blog, and I insist on this matter as I am breaking absolutely no rules by having my SGP as a forum. Thank you for your time and consideration. ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 21:17, July 28, 2014 (UTC)

Speaking with Danny, I have decided to just make the process simple by moving it over. There is not really a huge discernible difference, so this is not an issue for me. I still refuse to convert it into a blog, however, just as a general note on the matter. ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 21:22, July 28, 2014 (UTC)

Congratualions Edit

Hi Follower.

I saw your message to J and just wanted to say Congratualtions on your nuptials. I hope you have countless years of happiness. Agent c (talk) 10:57, September 25, 2014 (UTC)

CommentEdit

Since you failed to reply last time, maybe you can do it now? Anyway, could you make a VIP comment (below) on the fight of Christine vs. Skynet vs. Harkness in the Hole? Energy X 19:02, October 21, 2014 (UTC)

Re: Discussion Edit

I shall let you know when the morning comes/when I wake up. It is currently 3:36 AM and I plan on getting some sleep tonight (this morning? Whatever). I will look over the events/matters as well at the morning as lack of sleep is rapidly catching up to me. Richie9999 (talk) 08:39, November 27, 2014 (UTC)

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. Merry Christmas, and a very happy new year in which all your wishes may come true! - Greets Peace'n Hugs (talk) (blog) 18:13, December 25, 2014 (UTC)

Board award Edit

2013 board award
You have been given a Nukapedian of the Year board award.
Your efforts and diligence have not gone unnoticed, and you have been given a small token of appreciation.
For serving on the 2013 Nukapedian of the Year Board! --Skire (talk)

Roughly one year late (but better late than never). Thanks for serving on the board! --Skire (talk) 02:56, December 30, 2014 (UTC)

InactivityEdit

I have called a vote to remove a number of our admins and moderators on grounds of lack of presence or activity on the wiki. As you are one of them you have one week to make your case before the vote opens. JASPER//"Do you like hurting other people?"UserRichard 18:48, April 27, 2015 (UTC)

E3 Nominee Edit

Heya :) Hope you've been enjoying the E3 coverage of Fallout — and all those other games. Just wanted to drop by and let you know — so you could pass on the info to other admin and users — that Fallout 4 is one of the five finalists in the E3 Game of Show competition! As such, I've added a tiny banner in the right rail of the front page. If you click it, you'll go to the E3 voting page. Hopefully, you'll be able to enourage people to vote so that Fallout 4 can win!

And don't worry: the banner isn't a permanent fixture. It's only going to be around for a bit less than 48 hours. Thanks

Application for Admin Edit

Hello, I have been on this Wiki for a significant amount of time and over that period I have gotten to know the users and a general good sense of what this community is about. I don't know how to program or code but I think I would make an excellent addition to your staff of Admins here on this Wiki. That is why I am formally submitting this request to become an Admin on Fallout Wiki. Please bring this request up with the other admins as soon as possible, I am pretty excited about getting started.

Yours truly, Bob aka Their Here —Preceding unsigned comment added by Their Here (talkcontribs). Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

Bug Policy Proposals and Changes Edit

Hi there, I just wanted to notify all special rights holders of the new Bug policy proposals that are being put up for vote in the forums. If you have a free moment, please make sure to go in and vote. Forum:Bug Policy proposals and changes. ---bleep196- (talk) 19:47, June 19, 2016 (UTC)

This is a backup message being sent to Admins of the Fallout wiki. I have recently added a few more bugs to Fallout 4's quest page for Show No Mercy and it appears to have corrupted in a way. I am unable to fix it, and requires your immediate attention should another Admin have not taken care of already.

If you plan on just reverting the page to it's former then becareful, as the bugs I've put down will be lost, which will be unfortunate because it comes with video evidence.

Admin talk blogEdit

Please see User blog:The Gunny/Admin talk - Discussions moderation for a few site wide changes wikia has made as well as some details on discussions moderating. I will be opening a discussions topic in the next day or so with the intent to better introduce all of our site moderation team to the users there (most of them have no idea who most of us are). When that topic goes live, I will leave another talk page message for you asking that you navigate to the topic to introduce yourself and interact a bit with users there. I feel this is very important and a problem we need to fix. The Gunny  UserGunny chevrons 16:40, July 2, 2017 (UTC)

Soft blocks Edit

I have raised a forum to discuss adding the option of soft blocks as an alternative to hard blocks and extend the admin toolset for more flexibity in handling minor breaks in rules and guidelines. Can you read through the forum and give your input. Sakaratte - Talk to the catmin 20:43, August 7, 2017 (UTC)

Wikia's forced addition of videos to the wikiEdit

Hello, I realise you may not have edited the wiki, or even visited us in a while. We do miss you, and I apologise for contacting you with a request for help… but we do need it, and there’s not much you need to do to help us.

As you may be aware, Wikia/Fandom have added a number of videos to pages on the wiki that they have self authored. Although the consensus view so far seems to be that these are not to our standards, I encourage you to view these for yourself and make up your own mind.

You can find a link to all the videos, and a petition I would like you to consider here. If you believe that these videos do not meet our standards, detract from the wiki, and should be removed, I encourage you to vote yes on this petition. You are of course welcome to vote no if you do not believe this is the case.

Thank you for your consideration. Agent c (talk) 21:21, September 7, 2017 (UTC)
