WelcomeEdit

Glad to see you coming over to our wiki. Good to have you on board, looking forward to your edits! Jspoel Speech Jspoel 16:47, September 16, 2019 (UTC)

Editor IDEdit

Yes, we use <tt> when adding the edid parameter. They're already in most infobox templates though I think, at least the items and weapons. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 15:32, September 19, 2019 (UTC)

It's not worth the trouble anymore with Fallout 76. Only Wastelanders will come with some new pages, but it doesn't even have an article creation template. The pages for WL will be just copied from other similar pages anyway. Let's save it for the next Fallout. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 21:00, September 19, 2019 (UTC)

Bot program taskEdit

Given your background, I may just have the thing/bot challenge for you. Something from the past, dialogue files that weren't converted from Fallout: New Vegas. See Special:WhatLinksHere/Template:Bot_rewrite. You think you can convert them to the proper FNV format? The user that converted them isn't active anymore. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 21:58, September 19, 2019 (UTC)

GSSunnySmiles.txt is a perfect example!. And yes, VGOMVarDealers.txt is a dialogue that should be converted to how Sunny Smiles' dialogue looks. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 16:04, September 23, 2019 (UTC)
Yes, it is used to be able to link to a certain line number from another page, for referencing. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 16:10, September 23, 2019 (UTC)
So it doesn't come from the dialogue file itself, but simply generated for referencing from 1 to ... Jspoel Speech Jspoel 16:12, September 23, 2019 (UTC)
Yes, it looks good! Though this particular dialogue file has only one section (Topics). There are a few that have more, like EldoradoNCRSergeant.txt that has two sections (Topics and Conversation). I suppose you've worked that out as well? Jspoel Speech Jspoel 19:51, September 23, 2019 (UTC)
It needs to be sorted by the column Quest Category. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 20:22, September 23, 2019 (UTC)
Yes, I see it, no links to {{Bot rewrite}} anymore. Great, thanks! Jspoel Speech Jspoel 21:55, September 23, 2019 (UTC)

( Have a few new ones: VDialogueHooverDam.txt, VDialogueTheFortGeneric.txt and VDialogueCaesarsLegionMilitary.txt.

From Fallout 3 I generated DLC02ConvOutcast.txt and GenericBrotherhoodOutcast.txt, these require new bot programming. See CG02Amata.txt as an example. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 12:51, September 26, 2019 (UTC)
Ok, I'll add the bot rewrite template on them. About the Fallout 3 files, I was just assuming that because the columns are somewhat mixed around... Bit of a layman's assumption I suppose. You will figure it out then. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 22:42, September 26, 2019 (UTC)
Ok, my thanks. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 20:46, October 4, 2019 (UTC)

Quest animationsEdit

Hey Brant, I'm not sure what your plans with the quest animations are, but I wouldn't want them seen plainly in sight on pages. I created stills of them for a reason. My opinion is that a moving image distracts too much from the content, and I think a still looks better, especially colored. Best I could give you is maybe place it somewhere more hidden as on Frank Horrigan#Death animation. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 17:12, October 9, 2019 (UTC)

I suppose. It shouldn't use the footer parameter though, just make a new one parameter, above footer. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 11:40, October 10, 2019 (UTC)
That's what I had in mind, yes. You can go use it. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 11:32, October 11, 2019 (UTC)
Can you replace the animation for Tactical Thinking? It's bugged. If you can't replace it with an animated gif, it may just as well be removed. About those location categories you added, we use a different categorizing system here with the vaults, so that's why you were reverted. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 21:01, October 13, 2019 (UTC)

Huh? Edit

Wait, I undid that edit … was that simultaneously? My … by the way, hi! -- UserCCCSig -- You talkin' to me? -- cCContributions -- 23:55, October 9, 2019 (UTC)

I was under the impression, you'd have "moved over" completely. ;) Well, I'm still admin there, while I'm not here, yet. So, I wouldn't call it "move over" for my person, just "move in" to a second place. Getting to know the rules here, patrolling a bit, and then see what can/has to be done with the merge – also over there. The Vault's too big to let it rot, but something has to be done to keep merged articles consistent, I think. Also, I haven't been very active in the past, and most of my time I'm spending on another wiki where I'm the only active admin. We'll see … Do you already have Fandom experience from elsewhere? -- UserCCCSig -- You talkin' to me? -- cCContributions -- 00:56, October 10, 2019 (UTC)
I am in contact with tagz, but also didn't want to snub this community, as I can't tell how much of a valuable contributor and worth of being an admin I can be during the next time … Well, again, we'll see.

Nukapedia - Vault Merger: voting has reopenedEdit

Howdy,

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.

Thanks,

CategorizationEdit

You can find our categorization policy on Fallout_Wiki:Content_organization_guideline#Categorization. Hope that helps you on your way. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 16:53, October 29, 2019 (UTC)

Can you also update the robots navbox with the robots you added the navbox to? Jspoel Speech Jspoel 17:11, October 29, 2019 (UTC)

Re: ThanksEdit

Lol no worries. God knows I've forgotten a space enough times myself. --L84tea Tea kettleWould you like a cup of tea? 01:07, November 21, 2019 (UTC)

Unlabeled messageEdit

Hello Admin.

Both Curie and Codsworth exists outside of the DLC so i think the correct naming for their Bussblades are ((Fallout 4)) Mr Handy Bussblade.

I saw you changed it to ((Automatron)) Mr Handy Bussblade....

Regards from Kenneth

CategorizationEdit

I don't quite follow it, didn't understand "Am I correct in assuming that any page that has a directly equivalent category should only have further categories applied to the category for it, rather than the content page? And that categorizing the page itself should be reserved for less significant factions that do not have their own category?" Maybe give me a few examples. (I admit our categorization structure is a bit complex, don't used consequential everywhere I believe). Jspoel Speech Jspoel 18:49, December 4, 2019 (UTC)

I suppose so, because now you have the pages in both 2 connecting categories (personally I'm not that happy with all these subcategories). Then you'd have to remove the faction categories from Atom Cats, Gunners, L&L Gang and Triggerman. Leave NCR as it is. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 19:03, December 4, 2019 (UTC)
Only difference may be that it's an important faction, appearing in almost all games. Leave those categories and its contents as they are now I think. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 14:15, December 6, 2019 (UTC)
