You aren't exactly a new user, but you still do make certain mistakes. Take some time to read this, please. 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. 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
- Oooh. Good point. (Yeah, I was thinking more of the desertion. Not the actual formation. You are indeed correct sir. Apologies). Timeoin•Say G'Day•View 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)
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)
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 Would you like a cup of tea? 03:40, August 30, 2019 (UTC)
