Re Deacon note

That does sound strange. I will look into it and see if I can't replicate it. Thanks for letting me know. -kdarrow Pickman heart.png take her for a spin! 20:37, 9 March 2022 (UTC)

Deathclaw Official Lore

@Branebriar1930 In-game sources reveal that the Deathclaws were, indeed, originally created as a bio-weapon before the war. Also, one of the developers confirmed these creatures were refined by the master during the events of the first Fallout game. Please do your research before changing someone else's edit. -Lordtyrannus2.0 23:37 30 March 2022 (UTC)

Warning to Branebriar1930

@Branebriar1930 I understand that harassing you was wrong, but it felt like I had no other option. I was only trying to improve your wiki by restoring canonical information found in-game. However, you viewed this as an act of vandalism. Also, in my last post, I've explained how my first edits were justified via statements by the developers. Let this be a warring to you. I already altered one of the administrators about your possible "abuse of power". If this continues with other users, then you may be in violation of Fandom's terms of service. -Lordtyrannus2.0

Hi Brane,

I'm issuing a no-contact with Lordtyrannus until I get a chance to review everything as I can see the conversation between you and him escalating, and I want to avoid further conflict until I can mediate. Unfortunately due to multiple vaccinations and a blood draw, I will not be able to get to this today.

Thanks, Bleep

Re: Deathclaw page again

Hey Brane,

I will stay my hand for now, as bleep has taken it upon her to review the whole exchange. Let me know if there is anything else I can assist with. Have a great day and happy editing. –FindabairMini-JSPnP Logo.pngThe benefit of the doubt is often doubtful. 04:27, 21 April 2022 (UTC)

You have an itchy Undo finger

When you did a reversion without realizing what you were doing, I came to your talk page to talk about it, then I saw you were already in conflict with another user and being warned about it, so I looked at your edit history.

Almost all you do is to delete information from the wiki. It looks like you search for anything that could remotely qualify as "strategy" and delete everything associated with it, regardless of whether or not the information is actually factual information that is useful to someone who is actually playing the game.

There's opinion-based strategy that can be argued over, and that truly doesn't belong on a wiki, but in the case of the edit of mine that you reverted, I was just clarifying an existing comment that simply pointed out that the only way to wear a CHA+2 underarmor with all four CHA+1 limb armor pieces was to use the underarmor on the page. That's not strategy, that's just a fact, and it's a very useful one to know when playing the game.

Worse, you simply reverted my edit without taking the time to recognize that the supposed "strat" was already present on the page and I was just clarifying it. I know you didn't read the edit, because if you had, you would have realized you should delete the entire note. Except you shouldn't.

I've looked over your last month's changes and there's a lot of stuff similar to this. Stop looking for nails to hammer. Removing useful factual information from the wiki is not beneficial to its purpose. People come to this wiki to learn about playing the game, not to study for an exam on the Fallout universe. Help them do that. Felice Enellen (talk) 03:11, 22 April 2022 (UTC)

Yes, I do question your competency as a mod

To quote you:

> subjective strategies or opinions are not allowed

The content in question was not subjective or an opinion. It was factual. I pointed this out in my comment above. But apparently, as with the modification you reverted, you didn't spend enough time actually reading what was actually written to notice that.

To quote you again:

> it took me about half a second to see that which is why I reverted it so fast

It took you half a second to jump to an incorrect conclusion. That's not appropriate moderation. Anyone who contributes their time and effort to adding information to the wiki deserves more than half a second of your time. I would not call such moderation "good faith". I would call it trigger-happy.

> (you know, because its my job as an mod)

It is not your job as a mod to make half-second judgments about deleting edits that other people have dedicated some of their life to write in a volunteer role in good faith for the benefit of others.

This wiki is an information repository that serves to better the lives of people playing the game(s). It is not a ghetto to be policed. Your attitude appears to me to be entirely unbecoming of a moderator, cold and unfriendly. So yes, I do question your competency as a mod.

To my eye, even ignoring my own edit, a lot of your reverts have been deleting useful factual, objective information from the wiki in the name of following the letter of the wiki's law, rather than the intent of the law, which in the case of strats is to prevent people from posting page after page of long-winded advice that may or may not be valid or appropriate.

The fact that you didn't take the extra seconds to determine whether or not the content was objective, rather than subjective, concerns me. I worry about how much useful factual information you might already have deleted from the wiki in the name of removing "strategy". Nukapedia is a great resource and I don't like the idea of it taking damage.

Now, you can either bristle at me and try to claim I'm making a personal attack and maybe even go so far as to ban me, but that's not what I'm doing here. I'm questioning your ability, or perhaps I should more generously say "commitment", since I'm sure you're able if you take the care needed, to perform your job, and not your worth as a person. So don't go there. I suggest you take it as constructive criticism instead. Felice Enellen (talk) 15:08, 22 April 2022 (UTC)

Requesting help

I hope you'll forgive me as I'm still learning the workings of Nukapedia, but there's an unmarked location in New Vegas I wish to document. Any chance you might be able to give me some pointers on how to go about that, or maybe direct me to someone who could help? Thanks in advance. —Preceding unsigned comment added by CornPortal (talkcontribs). Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

Thank you for the help. I'll remember the respond in the appropriate location next time. Thanks for that as well. The tips you provided are quite clear and leave me with no doubts.
