Bio You can often find me in the Discord server. I've been a regular on the Fallout Wiki since 2011, a chat moderator since 2012 (with a short haitus in 2015), and occasionally write articles for the Strategic Nuclear Moose fan site.
I play some on PC and PS4, but mainly Xbox One. Feel free to ask for my gamertag cause I'm always looking for more friends to play with!
Have any questions? Ask me either in the chat room, or leave me a message on my talk page.
Hello! You've found my talk page. If I am not in chat, you can leave me a message here, and I will see it next time I am online. Please remember to sign your posts with ~~~~ and I'll get back to you as soon as I can. - Chris
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).

Hello fellow Patrons, and welcome to this week's edition of the Strategic Nuclear Moose (SNM) Sentinel, a Nukapedia Wiki News Digest (WND).
The SNM sentinel is a consistent Saturday release, and will be covering everything from wiki-related news, geek culture, and community content established to help incentivize our incredibly hard working and devout editors, who certainly deserve a bit of recognition for their parts in improving and expanding this wiki and the community behind it.
For those that were not around during the Sentinel's origin days, the concept is a community driven one, affording opportunities for our fellow Patrons to contribute towards each edition. Interested in getting to know the community behind the SNM? Feel free to not only join us on our personal Discord here, but also the overall Nukapedia Discord here.
Content Moderator L84Tea has recently decided to hand in her Content Moderator rights. For those of you not well acquainted with this user, L84Tea joined our wiki and community in 2018, and has since then made large-scale, quality edits that have greatly benefited our content and its quality. Her departure from the staff will be felt for some time, and we wish her well.
On the flip-side, if you haven't already, make sure to give our newest administrator, Kdarrow a warm and hearty welcome, as she's been making waves in our community during her relatively short tenure here. Still need to catch up on our newest addition? You can find her concluded administration request here.
Recently our voting requirement regarding policy votes has been updated. The discussion may be found here, while the concluded vote can be found here. Make sure to give these forums a read, as they do entail important changes for users looking to get involved in changes made to the wiki and its community.
An important aspect of the wiki is its encyclopedic nature, which inspires regular debate over how to standardize our articles to adhere to professional standards. One such debate can be found here, and covers the topic of player perspective within our articles. The vote is on the horizon, so make sure to put in your opinion(s)!

Hello, and welcome to the weekly polls! The weekly polls are our attempt to gather community opinions over game-related topics, and to hopefully help foster an environment where our Patrons get together for regular discussion. Please keep in mind while polling, that our questions will often be over various games, instead of focusing on one particular title or genre.
As of last week, our Patrons have made their opinions known, and the results are as follows:
With a tied vote, Grognak the Barbarian & the Silver Shroud were voted in as the fan favourite Hubris Comics fictional character.
And with the majority vote, Oswald the Outrageous pulls ahead as the fan favourite wasteland villain!
For our Patrons that comment below in the comment's section both of their poll selections, we will be awarding 100 credits, so make sure to share your thoughts with your fellow Patrons!
