You aren't exactly a new user, but you still do make certain mistakes. Take some time to read this, please. ☢ Energy X ☣ 14:36, November 13, 2018 (UTC)

I must say, you are one of the few exceptions from the new editors that do good edits, without unnecessary capitalization or other sorts of mistakes. I applaud you for that. ☢ Energy X ☣ 14:39, November 18, 2018 (UTC)

This is Thebirdman567, who is the person who was correcting your edits to Eastern Regional Penitentiary, changing the type to Goodneighbor, rather than building. I don’t know if you have played Fallout 76, but I have and the map marker is the same as Goodneighbor. The “type” section of the infobox is what changes the map marker. I apologize if I have made you frustrated, as I was simply correcting it. If you need an example, check Harbor Grand Hotel. It has the type of Goodneighbor, and the map marker is the same as goodneighbor. I’m just trying to be nice about it and correct errors. If you just didn’t know, I don’t blame you. There is a lot of hate going on about 76.

This wiki uses American English. Biogas isn't hyphenated. Unless directly referring to the bio-gas canister itself (which that link is pushing it btw, as it isn't the subject of that word), it follows normal AE conventions. Great Mara (talk) 23:49, November 25, 2018 (UTC)

Brotherhood of Steel Edit

Aren't they formed before the end of the war? (JUST before the bombs dropped, sure, but still pre-war). TimeoinSay G'DayView my work 03:01, November 28, 2018 (UTC)

Oooh. Good point. (Yeah, I was thinking more of the desertion. Not the actual formation. You are indeed correct sir. Apologies). TimeoinSay G'DayView my work 03:22, November 28, 2018 (UTC)

Chinese assault rifle Edit

I am not going to start an edit-war (and just lose it anyway) over you reverting those two notes I added. But I still want to complain. I get that verification for everything is demanded and even necessary, but do you know firearms? The AK-47's development began in 1945, and the design was approved by the Soviet government/military (whoever) in 1947, hence the name. The Type 56 and Galil were not designed until years after Fallout diverges from our timeline in 1948, which I was careful to note, but the Type 93 *does* bear a remarkable resemblance to the Galil. No one has ever gone into detail about what happened between the People's Republic of China and the Soviet Union after 1948 in terms of weapons design in Fallout, but the Chinese obviously either were given or later got their hands on design schematics for the AK. My point here is, it is not totally wild, unfounded speculation to say the Type 93 is a likely descendant of the AK-47, which *does exist* in Fallout as everything that happened in world history up to 1948 is considered canon. Would the USSR have suddenly dropped a rifle they had already started issuing by 1948? I don't think so. From the tip of the barrel to the back of the stock the Type 93 looks like a member of the Kalashnikov rifle family. A firearm cannot have so many features that are reminiscent of that design and NOT be related. I am unable to help the fact that the developers have largely stayed silent about what inspired them to create what weapon. But any fool with some working firearms knowledge can tell the Type 93 and the AK-47 are in some way related to each other. If there is even the tiniest detail or note I *am* allowed to make, I would appreciate being told what it is. --90TheGeneral09 (talk) 17:34, January 2, 2019 (UTC)

Jacob LernerEdit

You can make Jacob Lerner a normal character page. His corpse can be found somewhere outside the Valley Galleria. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 23:24, February 1, 2019 (UTC)

Image descEdit

Hola. Saw what you were trying to do on the Late edition newspaper page. Good idea - I added it in. For next time the infobox tag you want is |image desc =XYZ :) L84tea Tea kettle 04:43, March 1, 2019 (UTC)

Gatling laser fusion core usage Edit

You changed the explanation of gatling plasma use of cores based on the explanation of gatling laser fusion core usage which is incorrect. I know that the game reload sequence makes it look that way but actual core usage follows a different algorithm. I tested this morning with three laser cores in inventory. The usage goes like this: Reload will report rounds in the gun using the formula: 500 * the percentage of the core in inventory with the highest percentage. Rounds will be used from one of the other cores. When that core is depleted, it will be deleted and rounds will be subtracted from another core. THIS OCCURS WITHOUT RELOADING. Reloading returns the magazine to the number based on the core with the highest percentage. Reloading does not move a core from inventory into the magazine; the cores always stay in inventory. As you fire the gun, the percentage of one of the cores in inventory goes down. In my test, the highest core in inventory was 90%. Every reload gave me 454 rounds. (Reported percentage is rounded down, actual was 454/500=90.8%). The highest core was never used by the gatling laser (it would be used if it was the only one in inventory). When the first core being used was depleted, I observed it being deleted from "available ammo" and usage switched to another core without reloading.

Moving this spreadsheet data into a text only format screws it up. It may have to be put back into a spreadsheet to make sense.

Gatling laser Edit

The gatling laser and gatling plasma both work this way. I did the test with the gatling laser. They both load the number of rounds based on the core with the highest percent but use up the cores with lower percentages first. It's more of a "pretend" reload situation. I'll corrct both of them. --Lakewalker (talk) 13:26, April 4, 2019 (UTC)

Vault-Tec Rep Edit

Any particular reason for the revert on my edits to Vault-Tec rep? The current version stumbles around between time periods and is completely inconsistent in its use of past and present tense. I was trying to clean it up and make it flow more consistently. --DirtyBlue929 (talk) 17:27, May 6, 2019 (UTC)

No problem, it happens. Thanks for understanding!--DirtyBlue929 (talk) 20:28, May 6, 2019 (UTC)

Little token of thanks Edit

Hey, uh, just wanted to say thank you for adding in the little reference to the Hoover Dam article. Kind of was nice since I didn't know how.

Several staff members have vouched for you becoming patroller and as far as I can tell, they are right. Would you be interested in being given these rights? DisgustingWastelander (talk) 20:43, August 26, 2019 (UTC)

Sorry for the late response, for some reason I didn't get a notification about your response. I will make you patroller, if you have questions, feel free to ask me or other staff, preferably active ones. Essentially this means your edits are expected to follow all our guidelines and that there's no reason for other staff members to check them. At the same time, you gain the ability to patrol edits, if an edit is up to our standards, you can hit the patrol button. When you're seeing the difference between two edits on a page, the patrol button should be there. --DisgustingWastelander (talk) 18:06, August 29, 2019 (UTC)
Ayyy congrats on being made patroller; it feels overdue. :D --L84tea Tea kettleWould you like a cup of tea? 03:40, August 30, 2019 (UTC)

Nukapedia - Vault Merger: voting has reopenedEdit


As you may have already seen, voting for the proposed merger has been reopened. Voting was originally postponed so that users could better discuss the proposal, and after a lengthy conversation, that forum has since come to a close. For more information, please see the discussion itself. The post is a little lengthy, but if you are truly interested in making an informed decision, I would recommend reading through it.

Because this discussion may or may not affect how you voted initially or your rationale at the time, please review your post so that it reflects your current beliefs accurately.

This is only a notice of open polls and is not soliciting a change of vote. This is a generic talk page message intended only as for any and all voters, so as to avoid any indication of bias towards a particular outcome. Voting is slated to end on 5:01 pm November 1, 2019 (UTC).

The formal vote can be found here.

United States Armed Forces category revertEdit

Is there a reason you removed this edit? Pages that are directly referred to by categories should be sorted to appear on the top of the category page. Brantmeierz (talk) 23:42, December 12, 2019 (UTC)

The {{catmore}} template does provide a little message on the top of the category to link to corresponding page, but adding the [[Category:Whatever| ]] bit on it gives it top preference when sorting so it also appears first in the list of pages within the category (anything you give it after the bar will instead sort by that, so a space beats other characters). I'll add it back in if that's okay then, I just wanted to check in so we weren't going back and forth. Brantmeierz (talk) 00:47, December 13, 2019 (UTC)

gunners hierarchy Edit

I get and agree that it is a good question but it is just that - a question. There are a million things in the fallout universe that are unclear. For example i put down a similar question about how it was unclear how little lamplight stays populated (you can go and read on my page how well that was received). Saying something is 'unclear' will inevitably open up doors to the highly stigmatized, 'presumably' and 'likely' in order to explain it. Best just to leave it out.

Alternatively you can do what i did on wes' page where i did mention that their were gunners who where of higher rank than him but i didn't pose any questions about it. ( Also you didn't sign your message so please do that)--Branebriar1930 (talk) 13:12, March 29, 2020 (UTC)

FO4 companion comments Edit

I've already scoured YouTube. At this point it takes a Creation/GECK editor's abilities to find and confirm them.--Ant2242 (talk) 23:58, April 21, 2020 (UTC)


Hey, just a heads-up: I broke up the tank article into mentioned-only and non-mentioned models to keep it saner and avoid mixing historic models with ones unique to the universe. While the photograph features the M46 Patton, it's been modified by the prop makers to add a second tank in the background, and like with the R91 that's heavily based on the CETME and G3 rifles, we can't say it's definitely an M46 Patton - especially since the mural is an obvious reference to the Korean War, rather than the modern times.

My brainEdit

My brain must have been tired, thanks for swapping out Boulder City Memorial for Yangtze Memorial. I appreciate it! -(Kdarrow (talk) 15:59, June 7, 2020 (UTC))

mojave chapter Edit

I agree with you that putting the bos mojave chapter as a separate party from the main organisation makes no sense, but i removed it from forces because that does not really make sense either. bos vs ncr, plain and simple is fine.--Branebriar1930 (talk) 19:42, June 17, 2020 (UTC)

Republican Edit

Sorry about undoing your edit, I was leaving a summary, but I clicked too fast. I was just going to say that the context of the line uses the word "republican", which, although it may not be affiliated with the political party, is still the only instance of usage in dialogue by any NPC in New Vegas. Plus the page itself just says "the word Republican", so it still counts. JCB2077 (talk) 05:04, June 30, 2020 (UTC)


I appreciate your support of my admin application. It means a lot to me :) -Kate (Kdarrow (talk) 09:34, July 20, 2020 (UTC))


Saw your edit summary. You are on to something, I did not see "Operation: Racket" anywhere. Nero et al call it "Racket" in a few lines of dialogue but that is all I could dig up. -kdarrow Pickman heart take her for a spin! 20:41, August 13, 2020 (UTC)

Thanks for swinging byEdit

We very rarely see editors stop by discussions to chat, which is a shame with how busy the old forums could be. Having seen ya posting a few times now, just wanted to extend a thanks for participating. The Dyre Wolf (talk) 02:20, August 15, 2020 (UTC)

Comprised Edit

I would like to thank both you and JCB for remaining civil during that entire exchange, and for trying to offer up civil resolutions. Due to the hostility, I have prematurely ended and removed the topic, although it can be started up again under better etiquette.

If you have any questions, feel free to send em my way. Until then, happy editing! 寧靜 Fox 06:46, September 16, 2020 (UTC)
