Thanks for the welcome back Ausir, I'm pretty glad to be back. I'm going to occupy myself with some FO2 pages until FONV comes out, so I'll probably get that edit count up pretty quick. --Johnny Trash (Talk) 23:23, October 13, 2010 (UTC)
Some one just vandalised the hermes armour/desert armour page i dont know how to revert it just lettng you now.
- Should the Fallout and Fallout 2 centaurs share a page, maybe under the page name of "Centaur (Core Region)"? TrailerParkApe Spew 23:10, October 15, 2010 (UTC)
- Sorry! I thought disambig for some reason. I'll fix that. TrailerParkApe Spew 23:42, October 15, 2010 (UTC)
Destructoid has a review copy also, the reviewer, Jim Sterling, usually updates his impressions on twitter - www.twitter.com/jimsterling, on some of his tweets on the 13 he says its really good, dunno if its relevant to you, just wanted to let you know - LK Tien
The guy with the guide book who was going to post the perks got banned. just thought id let you know.
Live @ best buy Fallout: New Vegas
Just found this http://www.liveatbestbuy.com/fallout thought it might be useful to you.
Grenade launcher and grenade rifle
It would seem recent video evidence would suggest that what this wiki currently knows as the grenade launcher is in fact the "Grenade rifle". I watched a live leak stream of the game for several hours today, and the player happened across a grenade rifle, which is identical to the break-action weapon we currently call the grenade launcher. Other evidence, namely the G4 weapons featurette and the Best Buy live demo, show that there is also a weapon referred by name as the grenade launcher in addition to the grenade rifle. In both of these you can catch a frame stating the GL's magazine size is 4, and the pip-boy icon is similar in appearance to the pump-action grenade launcher once thought to be a mod of the grenade rifle.
The reason I'm dumping this here is because 1. the necessary redirects would be impossible without a moderator and 2. were I to attempt this edit myself without warning, I would be instantly refuted and reverted in making such a bold change. While I'm here, I might as well also state the in-game name of Holy hand grenade is shown as "Holy frag grenade" in the aforementioned G4 clip, and would also require elevated correction.
Thank you, but it would seem I cannot actually do these edits myself. In the case of the grenade launcher, the article is locked to non-moderator edits, and on top of that, the redirect that will be created after the move will have to be deleted to make way for the actual grenade launcher article. Holy frag grenade, on the other hand, it's destination page already exists with far less info, and would have to be cleared to make way for the move. -Mediocrity Goggles 03:12, October 16, 2010 (UTC)
Grenade Launcher redirection still stands, with that deleted we should be done. -Mediocrity Goggles 03:21, October 16, 2010 (UTC)
You da man
You really are awesome. I made one little change to an article, and from that change you knew exactly what was needed. You jumped into action, updating a template and fixing every damn Fallout: New Vegas armor and clothing item we have. --Kris 03:05, October 16, 2010 (UTC)
i knew i would find some ! hey Ausir,i found 2 videos on youtube showing actual unboxing of New Vegas,both of them 360 i think, here's one http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=isWM6OEEE2I ,i just thought that you might find this useful,the other video shows the person doing the first quest,both offscreen.

What does the vault 8 computer tell you?
The did you know?... section has had the question "that the medical computer in Vault 8 can tell you about a secret for after you finish Fallout 2?" but when I read the article it doesn't tell you what the chosen one is informed on. What does the computer tell you? Thanks for helping!

Should we activate the Wiki Achievements now that FNV is out? Tezzla Cannon 17:43, October 18, 2010 (UTC)
I don't know if you'll see this, but you probably can answer my question.
On Fallout 3, I had at least 5 characters, and played through them all extensively. If I pre-ordered and got the classic pack, would its contents be available on every playthrough, or only on one character? I know that the code itself can only be used once, and thanks in advance. 188.8.131.52 22:20, October 18, 2010 (UTC)An anonymous user
How long for delivery?
When I pre-ordered fallout new vegas I thought it would ship early, so it would arrive on the 19th. This is not the case. They claim it will take a while. I live in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. How long do you think it will take for a classic pack from gamestop to arrive? Thank you for any help. 184.108.40.206 00:33, October 19, 2010 (UTC)
Tasty skill requirements
- I was more concerned over the size of them, actually. :P
- You can add info if you want, but I don't trust the guide and would rather wait for the game tomorrow. Nitty Tok. 02:50, October 19, 2010 (UTC)
is your name pronounced ass er or ass her? or perhaps ass sir?

Cut me some slack, home-dog
I deleted it to re-apply the page with the weapon template in place of the misc template, it was on the guide scans.
- I tried to do the 'edit-the-templates-in' thing on Jean-Baptiste Cutting, and I still don't think I've got the layout entirely nailed. As for the Marvin thing, I guess I was thinking "Oh, I'll let Goth figure it out." Nitty Tok. 12:41, October 19, 2010 (UTC)

Whats with all the made-up guns? Its not funny and its kinda pointless.

New Wikia Structure
It feels like pages on the wiki (in the new layout/structure) are doing an auto post-back on a regular basis, I'm guessing when the 'Recent Wiki Activity' web-part (and the pages count just above it) refreshes. I can be halfway down a page and then the browser tab image does a little refresh animation and hoiks me back to the top of the page. Browser is IE8. Monkoii 13:12, October 20, 2010 (UTC)
That was fast. THANKS --CryGame--
Is there any way to put a large image in the background. 'Cause i can't make a smaller one that would be symmetrical. --CryGame--
but i can't find out how. The damn thing has limits.--CryGame--
Wait, this is your work? All this new wiki stuph?--CryGame--
I've been trying to fix some wrong or broken links but I can't figure out how to figure it out for the Minigun page. When weapon pages were renamed, such as Enclave Plasma Rifle to Plasma Rifle (Fallout 3), the links got screwed up. That I can fix but the Gameplay Article links got me stumped.
I know what's wrong: the link is to Avenger Minigun (particularly) but not Avenger minigun (Fallout 2). Otherwise you're stuck in an endless loop back to the Minigun page.--KnightNapier 13:32, October 21, 2010 (UTC)
thanks for the tip about templates, I didn't mean to make a ton of work for you, I just figured some information was better than none, I'm just alt-tabbing as I notice things I think might be new and typing my findings real quick, but yeah the templates are really a lot less work than having to type all that stuff by hand!
I'm new to this wiki so I apologise if I have simply missed it, but I am a UK resident who pre-ordered Fallout: New Vegas. I was under the impression that it had a UK release date of the 22nd of October, but I have recieved mine today. I didn't see any news posts on this site about it being released in the UK so I thought I would post it here to let someone more knowledgeable decide if it is news worthy or not.GreyMullen 14:44, October 21, 2010 (UTC)GreyMullen.
Thanks for the reply, apologise for the false alarm. GreyMullen 14:49, October 21, 2010 (UTC) GreyMullen
oh also I noticed a problem brewing...
Problem? Maybe Not
Didn't see the message till after I made the powder charge schematics page. I will keep it in mind from now on. Mictlantecuhtli 16:24, October 21, 2010 (UTC)
I removed them from the list because I couldn't find them as perks under the names given. I also looked at simpler names that they might be under, and still didn't find them. If they're a perk, they're named something a lot different than what was in that box. Later, I'll see if I can find implants somewhere else in the game files but since I'm at work I'm limited to FNVEdit, since the GECK and the game both crash on this PC. --Kris 17:34, October 21, 2010 (UTC)

Question about New Vegas
Hello. Sorry to disturbe you Ausir, but I'm hoping that you can help. Do you know if there is anything like the My Megaton house in New Vegas? Currently I'm not that far into it, and I really can't seem to find anything about it anywhere. I'm really just wondering if there is any place that I can store extra gear that I don't want to sell right away or save for later. Again sorry to bother you with this, but I can't find anywhere. Thanks in advance. Lancer1289 12:45, October 22, 2010 (UTC)
- Thanks. Lancer1289 14:09, October 22, 2010 (UTC)
Just to let you know, we have recently made the 10000th article on The Vault. Tezzla Cannon 21:03, October 22, 2010 (UTC)
Yeah...but you broke it. Wiped the content and caused a self-redirect. I fixed it, but the page history is gone. --Kris 02:47, October 24, 2010 (UTC)
- Good, I didn't know how to select more than one revision without selecting each one by hand. --Kris 02:50, October 24, 2010 (UTC)
Thank you for helping me with the categories
Thank you for telling me there was a specific category for Non playable characters, I will put them in the right category from now on. I am new to adding things to the Fallout wiki, or even adding things to a wiki at all! I figured I could help this community by contributing since I had the resources and this wiki has helped me so much in the past!
Coco911231 03:54, October 24, 2010 (UTC)
I don't wish to impose, but my request for rollback privileges on this forum has yet to be responded to. I operate off of a fairly slow internet connection, so the red tape involved in reverting an edit applies to me to an even greater extent, since the page has to load multiple times. Having rollback rights would solve a great deal of this problem for me. The Grammar Police 05:19, October 24, 2010 (UTC)
- Thank you, this is going to make things much easier. The Grammar Police 06:06, October 24, 2010 (UTC)
Let's Ride Into the Sunset Together
Hey, I noticed that on the music page there is no mention of 'Let's Ride Into the Sunset Together'. I would change this myself, but I have no idea how to work anything here. At this point, it's unclear whether it's an original song, but there's no outside mention (that I've seen) outside of this game. Here's a link for clarification: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LwwFPraUNF8
What is classified as "Trivia" on the articles?
Petition for Oasis wide version
Fucked up Lilys page, apologies.
Sorry man, first contribution ever. Is there a guide on contributions?
One of your other designated admins just completely deleted a guide that I'd had over 2 hours of work into already. If you guys want me to put such guides on my own blog page that's fine, but you seem to forget that us normal registered users do not have access to see or recover deleted pages. Please at least go grab the content of that page you deleted and stick it in my blog area or otherwise give me some way to recover that 2 hours of hard work.
Admin Deadlykris has violated admin and content policy
Admin Deadlykris has violated this wiki's stated policy on page deletion. He deleted a page with substantive 2+ hours work behind it that did not in any obvious way violate a reasonable interpretation of the wiki's content policy. He could easily have moved the content into a user-specific area. I cannot recover all this original work because I have no access to the page history prior to the deletion. I would have been happy to move this information into a "more appropriate area" if I'd simply been contacted and worked with rather than having my work trashed without regard or real explanation. WTH you guys understand wikis are collaborative community efforts, right? What kind of admin trashes substantive content out of hand like that?
I'd love to have my work back. Feel free to email it to me or stash it somewhere under my user namespace. i don't care. But I *do* care very much about having my work erased completely with no way to recover it. That is just wrong.
The page in question was Universal character development guide. Hopefully you haven't flushed the wiki's deletion cache yet.
Weapon template problem?
Hey, I've been wondering about one thing. The weapon template should calculate the DPS automatically via formula, but on this page it doesn't work properly. It auto-corrects attacks/sec to 1 even though the value is set in GECK to 3 and as a result the DPS is incorrect (should be 3*120=360, you can also check in GECK).
Also, is it correct to use "Weapon embryo" template or "Weapon FNV" template? I'm asking because if I use "Weapon FNV" template the DPS formula doesn't work at all; the value is "dps?" instead of the calculated one.
e: user reverted my edit so you can't see it now but the DPS was 120.
Jonathan Strange 21:24, October 25, 2010 (UTC)
- Actually wait, no I got confused. TheCapulet was hours ago, BigMill was just a few minutes ago. Not sure why I blocked TheCapulet. It would have been while I was at work, but looking at the edits he made to talk pages I don't see anything that would have made me block him. --Kris 05:23, October 26, 2010 (UTC)
- OK I found it.  He changed the title of a section because he felt it was blasphemous. --Kris 05:26, October 26, 2010 (UTC)
- No biggie, it took me a while to find it, too. And I do sometimes get a bit overzealous on blocking and/or reverting edits. While we're on the subject, was I overreacting to block BigMill? It looks like he was going through and deleting all the old pre-release comments that were speculating on what the weapon would be. --Kris 05:34, October 26, 2010 (UTC)

Can you delete this page please?
The page is Gibson Scrapyard, and it needs to be deleted because it is a duplicate. The other page, Gibson Scrap Yard, covers what is explained in the page that needs to be deleted, and is also the correct spelling of the location it is covering (which is why it is the one to be kept).
Thanks, KingArmery 02:54, October 27, 2010 (UTC)
I think that user pages should initially be protected and a certain user (I guess that every user has a ID or something that could be implemented) can only edit it. Nukey (talk) 19:00, October 27, 2010 (UTC)
