Archive messEdit

I've seen it, raised a little smile. Let me fix that for you. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 12:01, July 7, 2020 (UTC)

All done. You now have 2 archive pages. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 12:04, July 7, 2020 (UTC)

IconsEdit

Hello there. I likely would have left it if I knew you made the change. I am ok with this, as long as we also stay consistent, avoiding saying "in Fallout 3..." which essentially serves the same purpose. I began using the icons instead of the page breaks for Van Buren information at first and kept doing so out of habit, but am not opposed to removing them. Either way seems fine to me. -Kdarrow (talk) 20:46, July 7, 2020 (UTC)

That makes sense to me, and is a good rule of thumb that I will go by from now on. Thank you for explaining it to me from that perspective, it is helpful. -(Kdarrow (talk) 21:01, July 7, 2020 (UTC))

R.E. Kellogg's ageEdit

Again, thats just unnecessary and convoluded. We dont know the biological age of over half of them, and for Kellogg especially, he aged conciously, and was alive and doing stuff for his entire. Using chronologically just makes no sense at all. Age is age, regardless of how they aged, or if it was even visible. Making the already painfully obvious distinction that "these people didnt age normally" just doesnt make sense. It could maybe be justifiable if we knew of some actual ages pre-augmentation, but even then, it would be something like (32 - pre cryostasis) and 230. The one that'd need differentiation would be the first one, not their actual age of 230.

Not to mention the fact that "chronologically" isnt even the right word to use. "in a way that follows the order in which events or records occurred." That doesnt apply to these characters at all. If youre using it interchangeably for "the amount of time that has passed, not the amount of time they've been concious", its not correct. --DankalorYT 13:59, July 10, 2020 (UTC)

Yeah, i'll do a bit of reworking for stuff like the Cabots. Obviously, for the characters that have both ages, we should make the distinction for one of them, but i'd still stick with their age pre-augment, not post. Thanks for understanding. --DankalorYT 14:08, July 10, 2020 (UTC)

LegionaryEdit

I've taken a look at Caesar's Legion military hierarchy to refresh my memory. I think decap everything where you can. I've added that missing dialogue. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 15:15, July 14, 2020 (UTC)

Free Economic Zone of New VegasEdit

I only added libertopia as it was given by the dev's regardless of whether it was a joke or not. In any case I understand your point and will leave it as it is. DustDevil88

CrossEdit

It's referenced now. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 17:20, July 18, 2020 (UTC)

AwwwEdit

Brane you are the sweetest. Thank you for supporting my admin application and for making me smile :) -Kate (Kdarrow (talk) 09:48, July 20, 2020 (UTC))

R.E. U.S. ArmyEdit

One, as AYF pointed out, the U.S. Army still exists, and continues to recruit enlistees to this day (See Camp McClintock). Second, even if it didn't exist, they still serve under it, and are still members. If you blow up the Institute in Fallout 4, the synths that appear at military checkpoints are still members of the Institute, no? MODUS is still a member of the Enclave, no? Unless they actively leave the group, the disestablishment of the group doesn't mean they suddenly aren't members. They can still serve and operate on a smaller scale, just like they actually are doing. --DankalorYT 00:53, July 28, 2020 (UTC)

Yeah, McClintock is a pretty clear example of (small scale) re-emergence of the Army. The automated training and Gutsy officers still run through soldiers, so i'd say that qualifies it as existing in some shape and form. And while it's debatable, Fields, Thompson and Radcliff make it pretty clear that they are carrying on the Army way, regardless of the state of the establishment or high brass. Unless the Army is officially disbanded, or they stop considering themselves to be US Army soldiers, any small pockets that continue to "serve" would still probably count as active Army. They're just functioning on a far smaller scale. --DankalorYT 01:34, July 28, 2020 (UTC)

R.E. ReddinEdit

can you restore my contributions to the reddin wiki page or tell me how to format the information so it may become approved. thanks Boohogladyte (talk) 01:00, July 28, 2020 (UTC)

Veteran paladinEdit

Did some investigation, most content comes from the Vault, Tagaziel added it there, therefore should be reliable, though a source could do some good. Try asking him. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 14:02, July 28, 2020 (UTC)

Veteran is used in the colloquial sense, as a synonym for experienced, not an actual rank. Personal_Sig_Image.gif Tagaziel (call!) @fandom 16:11, July 28, 2020 (UTC)

RE: glossaryEdit

Definitely. I would add the merge tag to both pages. Actually merging them is going to be a bit of undertaking, though. AllYourFavorites! (talk) 21:52, August 1, 2020 (UTC)

Anders/AndersonEdit

I don't think Anders and Anderson are the same person, although I thought that at first as well. Anderson is from the 1990s, and Emogene talks about Anders in 2077 as if she's unfamiliar with him. Even if Anderson got access to the Cabots' immortality, I wouldn't think Emogene would phrase it as "He seems competent enough." AllYourFavorites! (talk) 00:11, August 2, 2020 (UTC)

Ah, apologies. I wasn't sure why you removed him. Once there's a page made for this Anders, though, he definitely has a place on that page. AllYourFavorites! (talk) 00:16, August 2, 2020 (UTC)

Condensers Down Edit

Hi. Not sure why you are reverting my factually correct edits about this quest? The behaviour is significantly different when the settlement is allied vs not allied. By the way a lot of the detail in Detailed Walkthrough should probably be in the notes. But that's how I found it. Your cleanup is good, but how about waiting until I finish the factual edits before applying cleanup? Thanks. Spikezarkspike (talk) 19:29, August 3, 2020 (UTC)

Far Harbor Edit

Thanks, I was just about to add the Far Harbor icon to the Mattress location entry. You beat me to it! Great job. Spikezarkspike (talk) 11:58, August 4, 2020 (UTC)

Condenser Down 2 Edit

Sorry my client won't let me indent

I read your comments in my Talk and they absolutely make sense. We are in agreement. I read the article as saying the quest only occurred in an UNallied settlement so I was adding that it ALSO occurs when the settlement is allied. You are right it ONLY happens to an allied settlement. So I propose just to clarify that. Sorry for my confusion and thanks for your clarification.Spikezarkspike (talk) 12:06, August 4, 2020 (UTC)

I knowEdit

I have thought the same thing for several days. I am worried :( I will ask around and see if I can learn anything. Fingers crossed all is ok. -kdarrow Pickman heart take her for a spin! 11:41, August 6, 2020 (UTC)

Pinned - Notes - Changes - 7th August 2020 Edit

REF: https://fallout.fandom.com/wiki/Pinned?oldid=3291864

Hi,

Thanks for rewording my contribution in the article Pinned. Greatly appreciated. :D

Re: general Edit

I absolutely didn't notice. Will definitely make sure I find out in my next playthrough.

Flare gun Edit

The Flare Gun is available at vendors. But ok you want proof. How about you revert to my edits apart from that issue? I was about to amend the point about the Minutemen staying around, that only happens at settlements. According to the existing reference. Spikezarkspike (talk) 20:04, August 11, 2020 (UTC)

Ok I reinstated two non controversial things you reverted (one amended). I will look for proof about buying the flare gun itself and I take your point to ensure it wasn't inadvertently sold to the vendor first. Spikezarkspike (talk) 23:30, August 11, 2020 (UTC)

Flare gun part 2 Edit

Sorry my client just can't work with the editor for these Talk pages. So new message. I reverted your levelling Undo and explained why. As the PC levels the summoned Minutemen get high end Settler gear which just means highly modded pipe weapons as opposed to basic pipe weapons you would see at level 1. On the unique thing - on the one hand you want to preserve the claim this is a unique and irreplaceable item. Fair enough, but in that case it then makes sense to warn players that it is not a quest item and therefore can be inadvertently lost. Remembering that new and inexperienced players are as important or even more important an audience for this wikias experienced players.Spikezarkspike (talk) 12:36, August 12, 2020 (UTC)

Insulting Other Users Edit

Howdy, how's tricks?

I couldn't help but noticing your interactions with DustDevil88. Looked like the two of you were flinging some insults back and forth. Do not do that. I expect users of this wiki to adhere to the User conduct guideline and behave accordingly. That means don't insult other editors, don't be rude and if you feel that you're involved in a conflict with another user get an admin or bureaucrat involved to mediate it if needed.

A similar message will be left on DustDevil88's page.

Richie9999 (talk) 16:10, August 15, 2020 (UTC)

Thank you for the reply, that being said, your interjection on DustDevil88's talk page in regards to my message was not necessary and may serve to further they conflict present. Don't worry about me, I can handle things. Richie9999 (talk) 18:02, August 15, 2020 (UTC)

HowdyEdit

Hey there Branebriar, perhaps it wasn't my place but it did seem to get a bit heated there. There's no need to try to explain it any further to DustDevil, just have to hope they understand the situation. Although, apparently I'm in the doghouse with you too now lol Oh well, we tried, no hard feelings I hope, catch you around --Tribal Wisdom TribalWisdom(colour) Tawlk ta me! 18:13, August 15, 2020 (UTC)

Sorry should have clarified that; I am *clears throat* "sanctimonious" and "my help wasn't asked for," according to the person who I tried to be fair to --Tribal Wisdom TribalWisdom(colour) Tawlk ta me! 18:27, August 15, 2020 (UTC)

Yea, totally fair talking behind my back because I said something you didn't like when you acted all sanctimonious. You just showed you didn't have any good intention by ratting me out to the person you were meant to criticize for their actions. People on this wiki are so goddamned bitchy, if you say you consider it 'resolved' as you said, don't keep perpetuating the argument by talking behind my back to the very person you should be reprimanding. - User talk:DustDevil88

FormEdit

The current guideline is Player Character, but I'll be posting a formal proposal etc. soon, so I'd stick with PC. Also, the Midwest has a ton of elders - the guys in the large blue robes and who Barnaky complains overrule him on eg. recruiting deathclaws. Personal_Sig_Image.gif Tagaziel (call!) @fandom 19:11, August 16, 2020 (UTC)

Guilty faceEdit

Hey there love. It was me who wrote the "unknown" on Gorobets and I had to come clean :) I promise I know better, my goal there was to avoid having any more people write speculation about the memorial, it was driving me insane. Next time I will add an in-text notation instead, like I should have :) -(kdarrow Pickman heart take her for a spin! 10:29, August 20, 2020 (UTC))

No worries at all, it made me smile because I knew it was true!-kdarrow Pickman heart take her for a spin! 12:22, August 20, 2020 (UTC)

EldersEdit

Elder (Fallout Tactics) could use some love, but these are the Elder characters. Personal_Sig_Image.gif Tagaziel (call!) @fandom 10:57, August 21, 2020 (UTC)

Frank Horrigan Edit

Figured I'd go ahead and leave you a message over your recent changes on the Frank disamb:

From a storytelling perspective, Horrigan is not the primary antagonist, as that role would be extended to the president, along with the tertiary antagonists, Bird and Curling. A deuteragonist role is given to the second most important character in the story, whether from an antagonist of protagonist seat, which Horrigan fits perfectly.

Him being the end-game boss doesn't make him the primary antagonist though, as ultimately, he is just a foot soldier and secondary antagonist for the Enclave. 寧靜 Fox 11:06, August 21, 2020 (UTC)

I'll have to go over those articles as well, then - there's a lot of stuff that has managed to slip through the cracks, unfortunately. If you have an argument for Horrigan being the primary antagonist, then definitely let me know and we can discuss it. Otherwise, I'll change it back in a bit. Happy editing. 寧靜 Fox 11:24, August 21, 2020 (UTC)
The thing is, the Enclave are the game's big baddies, and the entire experience leads up to a final confrontation with them. Since Horrigan is a part of the faction, there's a chain of command that ends up deciding who the big bad is, and who their stooges are. There might not be a grand fight sequence with the president himself, but really, Horrigan is just a soldier, a dumb fanatical soldier at that, and had no part in kickstarting the events of Fallout 2.
It's tempting to consider Curling as the secondary antagonist since he's behind the "Final Solution," but Horrigan has enough of a direct presence in the game to take on that mantel instead. 寧靜 Fox 12:32, August 21, 2020 (UTC)
That's quite a bit different, though. Autumn isn't just some dumb super mutant; he's a highly intelligent officer who has the respect of everyone within Raven Rock. He's the primary antagonist, as Eden is shown to have never been the one truly in charge during the events of Fallout 3, with its goals being independent of the Enclave's true goals and wishes. Autumn is the one in charge, calling the shots, and representing everything that the Capital Wasteland branch of the Enclave stands for. 寧靜 Fox 12:47, August 21, 2020 (UTC)

sexuality picEdit

You are 1000% correct, and I actually got a laugh out of it once you mentioned it. Like, that's the pic you chose, Kate? Really? (And the Confirmed Bachelor picture is not any better!) Your idea is completely the better one, for sure. :)

R.E. Silus treatment Edit

Okay, got it. Sorry about that messy Silus Treatment edit. I usually checks for grammar before publishing anything but some real life stuff caught on when I was almost done. So I figured I should publish it first in case someone change the page and forcing me to start all over again. Although after seeing your edit, I have to say that the practice of using "one" to refer to the player is certainly going to take some getting-used-to. But I will try not to forget about that. By the way, just to be sure, this is right place to reply, correct? --10KEyeCandy (talk) 20:37, August 25, 2020 (UTC)

Super trooperEdit

Sorry if made fixing those trooper edits a bit awkward, not long finished work and just in bot mode with me usual stuff. Thanking you :) --Tribal Wisdom TribalWisdom(colour) Tawlk ta me! 10:43, August 27, 2020 (UTC)

NCR TrooperEdit

If you find yourself unable to use rollback, you can go into the page history, compare the revisions before the edits that need to be undone, then hit edit and publish to mass undo the changes. You won’t need to go through and undo them one by one. Great Mara (talk) 13:01, August 27, 2020 (UTC)

Thumbs upEdit

Yo, just wanted to say you are doing an exceptional job as a patroller. When I go to look through edits, they are all already done. And done correctly, reverted correctly, everything. I appreciate you doing such a thorough and consistent job, and much better than I could/did/am! Really though, thank you and please stay forever!

-kdarrow Pickman heart take her for a spin! 18:41, August 28, 2020 (UTC)
Anytime, I mean it!
--kdarrow Pickman heart take her for a spin! 23:11, August 28, 2020 (UTC)
Absolutely, me too. Who knows when real life will be coming back.
--kdarrow Pickman heart take her for a spin! 23:21, August 28, 2020 (UTC)

questionEdit

I got a question, why did you take out the loading screen I added for Fallout 2?

--Bart Mick (talk) 00:26, August 29, 2020 (UTC)
It's not fan art, it's a legitimate Fallout loading screen. It was vaguely familiar to me and discussion with other editors onn Discord lead to the same familiarity. It does, however, need a proper name and licensing, etc. - Sigmund Fraud Talk Contributions 00:38, August 29, 2020 (UTC)

Question regarding my adding links to "Courier Stash" Icons. Edit

Hello Branebriar1930,

Sorry if my edit was incorrect on the "Armor and Clothing" page, I'm rather new here. I just wanted to know why the links I added for the two "Couriers Stash" icons were incorrect.

The armor items "Lightweight leather armor" and "Lightweight metal armor" are the only items on the Armor and Clothing page with "add-on" icons that don't have links. The reason I linked them to the sub pages of "Couriers Stash" (pages "Caravan Pack" and "Mercenary Pack" respectively) is because the other two armor items from the same add-on ("Armored Vault 13 jumpsuit" and "Tribal raiding armor") also have links to the sub pages "Classic Pack" and "Tribal Pack".

Maybe it would be best if the "Couriers Stash" icons on that page all linked to the "Courier's Stash" page, as they do on the Weapons page.

Many Thanks, EH6607 (talk) 01:29, August 29, 2020 (UTC)

Thanks for the reply. Yes I agree, I think it would best if the Courier's Stash icons on that page linked to the Courier's Stash page instead of the individual packs. That's exactly what they do on the weapons page and I think that would make more sense. Would it be ok for me to edit those icon links on the Armor and Clothing page so they link to the Courier's Stash page instead? Thanks, EH6607 (talk) 17:03, August 29, 2020 (UTC)

Senior scribeEdit

Hopefully that works. Let me know if there's any issues with it. AllYourFavorites! (talk) 00:58, September 8, 2020 (UTC)

Activity Edit

I just wanted to come to you for a moment, to let you know that we've discussed you a bit over the past few weeks, and we've noticed an improvement in your interactions here on the wiki. We are lucky to have you here as an editor, and so it makes me happy to see that you're actively working on your social etiquette as well.

Your recent discussions with the anon is a perfect example, where you have also gone out of your way to offer help, and not just criticism. Keep up the great work. 寧靜 Fox 15:32, September 11, 2020 (UTC)

AnonEdit

Appears Leon took care of it, but thank you for bringing it to my attention! AllYourFavorites! (talk) 16:17, September 11, 2020 (UTC)

Bunker Hill merchants Edit

Hi. Thanks for reducing my (and others') lengthy comments to a much more concise form. That is a powerful talent you have for brevity (that I lack!).

I was wondering why you removed this content though:

  • Whichever of the travelling merchants is currently present at Bunker Hill is determined (consistently and predictably) based on the in-game calendar day of the week, each time the player character enters the cell.

That information is not elsewhere in the Wiki and is quite useful. I will shortly be expanding it to state which merchants are there on which day - even more useful. Conceivably it is an idea to create a separate article on the Bunker Hill merchants but for now the main Bunker Hill article is where general information on them (as a group rather than individually) "lives". Spikezarkspike (talk) 09:41, September 14, 2020 (UTC)

Actually on second thoughts please leave that deleted. I'll add something when I'm confident and have a complete picture on the travelling merchant schedule. Spikezarkspike (talk) 12:03, September 14, 2020 (UTC)
To your question, some of the individual merchants have speculation about their itineraries but it's not consistent and a lot if it is just plain demonstrably wrong.Spikezarkspike (talk) 12:07, September 14, 2020 (UTC)
Of the 4 individual Bunker Hill travelling merchant articles, 2 have a schedule, 1 has an itinerary, 1 has nothing. The 2 schedules are incorrect. All 4 of the articles are organised differently. It seems to me that the general characteristics of the travelling merchants should go in a section of the Bunker Hill article or the Merchants article. Then the detailed itineraries and (if determined) the detailed schedules of the merchants would go in their own individual articles. However I'm not now optimistic that there is any regular schedule, as 2 of the 4 merchant articles claim. I believe the schedule is actually either random, or so easily disturbed by the player's actions as to be effectively random.Spikezarkspike (talk) 13:29, September 14, 2020 (UTC)
As you say, the more I look at it the more random the pattern appears in Bunker Hill anyway. My feeling is that the itinerary (where they visit) can be stated with confidence, but the schedule (when they visit) cannot. So I'm minded to edit out the schedule aspects and conform the 4 travelling merchant articles so that they all have an itinerary. Make sense? Spikezarkspike (talk) 19:06, September 14, 2020 (UTC)

CMODEdit

Hey Brane, sorry for the delay, I asked the rest of the FOW team and it seems I got turned around. In general, you just have to follow the procedure outlined here:

https://fallout.fandom.com/wiki/Fallout_Wiki:Administrators_and_moderators#User_rights_requests

It seems like you meet the requirements to the letter, so it's a matter of crafting the application. You can use Kate's as a point of reference, she does just about everything perfectly.

Again, apologies for the delay, I guess I thought someone replied to you already. I can endorse you, if you wish. Personal_Sig_Image.gif Tagaziel (call!) @fandom 09:02, September 23, 2020 (UTC)

CmodEdit

Just put it up there, it should be good if you took Kate's content mod example. You can link to Tagaziel's comment he posted on your talkpage for endorsement, he may later solidify on your application itself. I'll put up a message alert. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 10:59, September 23, 2020 (UTC)

You forgot to start the poll and include a yes/no/neutral subheader. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 11:17, September 23, 2020 (UTC)
Just about. Personally I would mention your edit count of over 10,000 somewhere in the text, it's a large amount (so outside the table), and include "proof" of your improvement over time, linking the two relating comments on your talkpage from Kate and Old Man Leon. I helps your case I believe. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 11:32, September 23, 2020 (UTC)
All good now. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 11:40, September 23, 2020 (UTC)

Content Mod - where to vote? Edit

Hi, how do I vote for you? I saw a pop up a couple of days ago but now it's gone. I would be happy to vote for you. Spikezarkspike (talk) 15:49, September 24, 2020 (UTC)

Re: VoteEdit

You are quite welcome. I definitely mean what I said, I believe in you 100% and am very happy to give my support - you are going to be a fantastic comod!
-kdarrow Pickman heart take her for a spin! 20:43, September 24, 2020 (UTC)

Re: anonEdit

I was keeping an eye on that, thank you for giving me a heads up. I protected Calvin van Lowe and Shelley van Lowe articles so that only registered users can edit them for a bit. Thanks again for helping sort that out.
-kdarrow Pickman heart take her for a spin! 23:13, September 24, 2020 (UTC)

Icon linksEdit

I'd say, the first one (of an add-on) you encounter on a page/table should be linked, the rest not. That's the rule of thumb I reckon. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 16:43, September 26, 2020 (UTC)
