Dave, you don't have to add the name parameter on the pages you create. Also we use sex instead gender. And you can link Boulder City Memorial instead of Boulder City memorial. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 23:33, September 13, 2019 (UTC)

I'm actually not sure about all these memorial names. As you may have noticed they were deleted a few years ago; you could have restored them. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 23:41, September 13, 2019 (UTC)
Not sure if it's your plan, but when you create a page, at the same time solve the red links you create on it. I know it can be a lot of work, but otherwise we get way too many red links on our wiki, and it looks unnecessarily scruffy and unfinished in my opinion. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 23:50, September 13, 2019 (UTC)

You're going too fast, and are making mistakes. Ericka Elwood-Woodlum already exists: Ericka Elwood-Woolum. Also N.Stokes, J.Harvey and L.Reed exist: N. Stokes, J. Harvey and L. Reed. Slow down plz, we don't need double pages. I trust you fix these. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 00:21, September 14, 2019 (UTC)


You need to rename the images with numbers you upload from the Vault. We have a policy here that their names need to be descriptive. Also reverted your Robert House edit. This is a page where too much of our content is removed without taking a closer look at it what's valuable on our side. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 15:27, September 14, 2019 (UTC)


Be careful with creating new categories. First check if we already have them here, under a different name. For example the category Category:Computer software you just created, we already have that one under Category:Software. We need to avoid double categories obviously. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 16:09, September 14, 2019 (UTC)


What is FEV NZ short for? Jspoel Speech Jspoel 16:38, September 14, 2019 (UTC)


Hey Dave, we already have a Kovac-Muldoon Platform, you just created a duplicate. Can you look at integrating them? Jspoel Speech Jspoel 14:46, September 17, 2019 (UTC)


I dont think we need pages/infobox for assets (characters, locations etc.) from a game, in a game. Becomes way to detailistic. Just putting their interestics in a table is enough for me anyway. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 16:29, September 23, 2019 (UTC)

Ghost peopleEdit

Hey Dave, can you take another look at Ghost people? There are now 2 sections gameplay attributes. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 11:13, September 27, 2019 (UTC)

Karma imagesEdit

Hey Dave, nice work on those few Karma images, they're really high quality. You think you could the Bad karma images on the Karma page as well? Would be nice to have them black/white. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 15:43, September 30, 2019 (UTC)

Great! Thanks in advance. (What program/tool are you doing it with?) Jspoel Speech Jspoel 16:06, September 30, 2019 (UTC)
I found a few more in Category:Fallout_2_reputation_images. Or did you see those already? Jspoel Speech Jspoel 13:09, October 11, 2019 (UTC)

Nukapedia - Vault Merger: voting has reopenedEdit


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.

Why delete my article Edit

It me an hour to make this why did you delete it?

Hated imageEdit

Hey Dave, can you do your magic on the Hated image? It's currently an image on a popular page (Childkiller), might as well make it pretty. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 15:45, November 1, 2019 (UTC)

I'll wait it out then, when you have time, I'll be glad to see it appear in the image list. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 17:03, November 1, 2019 (UTC)

Much gratitudeEdit

Thank you so very much for your kind words. It means a lot to me, especially coming from you. Also as an aside, we are birthday twins. Most excellent! Thanks again for the encouragement. Kdarrow (talk) 06:46, November 12, 2019 (UTC)


Don't go too fast with these new pages. Check for oversights and links like I just corrected in a navbox. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 18:38, December 6, 2019 (UTC)

You need to add a for tag to distinguish the Angel's Boneyard and Boneyard at least. It's confusing to know which is which. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 18:47, December 6, 2019 (UTC)
Can you check what you leave behind? Change Fallout timeline to Timeline, the w: link directs to wikipedia on the Vault, but not on Nuka, change it to wikipedia: Also, the double colon moves what follows to the line below, so change that to - I think (see communities pages). And check your links. Nuka-World, Far Harbor, Acadia, the Pitt, Quincy are overview pages here, so update the links. And in general, browse the links from new content (what I do is search for [[ and I will have all the links highlighted). Sometimes we have game suffix, like yesterday when I had to change Gabriel to Gabriel (Gun Runners). Take more time, we're not in a rush with this merge. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 15:20, December 7, 2019 (UTC)

Why did you delete my post? Edit

Hey, question, why did you remove a post "Can't exit vault 111 at all"

Like how is it "Nonsense/gibberish"

This is an actual problem I'm having, like this is honestly nonsense, Unless you'd like to give me $40 as a refund on the game, because please do, the game's never gonna work.

But if you'd like to undo what you did, if you even can, that would be nice, so someone can actually be a responsible person and help me with this issue.


GiGaBit2K2 (talk) 02:21, December 11, 2019 (UTC)


What did the change to the navbox template do? Jspoel Speech Jspoel 20:25, December 25, 2019 (UTC)

Thanks Edit

Thanks for helping me edit the Brotherhood of Steel (East Coast) page. I saw that you moved to the Vault, and now you are back after the merge. I just wanted to ask how you feel to be back, and whether it was a change that you had hoped for?

Kind Regards. TechnoCrusader (talk) 05:28, January 16, 2020 (UTC)

Icon template - capital lettersEdit

Hi Dave, just wanted to let you know that unfortunately {{icon|Cut}} doesn't translate into {{icon|cut}}. The capital 'C' causes issues when you're copy-pasting. Just for future Vault merges. I fixed a bunch of them on Bert Gunnarsson. :) --L84tea Tea kettleWould you like a cup of tea? 07:03, January 21, 2020 (UTC)


Can you leave something more than no summary or just a "merge" summary reason when you are copying content from TV to here? You have to understand our content is partly being replaced now by The Vault's (I don't see a lot of combining) and deserves the respect of at least something more that that, even if it is for Nukapedia's history's sake. A lot of people of worked on it in the past years. Also, I wouldn't use the RT tag. I don't like that it removes the Edit button. A redundant template if you ask me. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 21:39, January 23, 2020 (UTC)

Ok, looks like you're doing it the right way then. Still I'd like to see something more in the summary to mark the transition. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 23:43, January 23, 2020 (UTC)

NTV Awards 2019Edit

Voting concluded this morning with TSR and Dank being named Runner Up and Contributor of the Year. While you may not have won, hopefully your nomination was seen as acknowledgement of all your efforts on the wiki. And as another small token of appreciation for your efforts, here is a badge to celebrate your nomination in the 2019 process.

NTV2019NMN2019 NTV Nominee

Thanks again! The Dyre Wolf (talk) 15:30, January 27, 2020 (UTC)


You need to leave a summary comment when importing, especially with large additions and on important pages like Tandi. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 17:01, February 16, 2020 (UTC)

Vault AcademyEdit

Hello Dave, this is Kate. I am writing to ask if I can join the Vault Academy, if it is still offered. I could not see where to sign up on the page, which is probably a good indication that I should join the program. Please let me know any information, and thank you! -Kdarrow (talk) 23:49, February 26, 2020 (UTC)

Great! I will continue under the tutelage of everyone at (in?) Discord. Thank you for helping me! -Kate (Kdarrow (talk) 04:01, February 27, 2020 (UTC))

removing content Edit

Didn't see a reference--Branebriar1930 (talk) 15:52, March 1, 2020 (UTC)

.44 pistol (FO4)Edit

Our infoboxes are supposed to reflect the base version of the weapon. In FO4, this would be the snub barrel with standard grip and sights. Changing the image to the higher tier barrel has the page displaying that version with the base stats. I also stated that the base version was supposed to be what is depicted when I restored the image in the edit summary when I edited the page. Great Mara (talk) 20:32, March 12, 2020 (UTC)

Not sure if this was seen yesterday. Great Mara (talk) 10:58, March 13, 2020 (UTC)
Would you object to me restoring the image to the snub nose version? The infobox and mod table reflect the pistol while equipped with the stub barrel, standard grip and standard sights. Great Mara (talk) 00:46, March 14, 2020 (UTC)
That would work also. Thank you. Great Mara (talk) 00:49, March 14, 2020 (UTC)

sexual violence Edit

I don't really see how a whole section dedicated to rape is valuable information for this type of wiki or its fans. and some of your examples are really stretching it in terms of validity.--Branebriar1930 (talk) 19:18, March 13, 2020 (UTC)

I'd remove that second note. Who's to say that "The dead female guard has had her clothing removed by the Powder Gangers". It's also ends with a rather distasteful remark.Jspoel Speech Jspoel 19:33, March 13, 2020 (UTC)
Ok appearantly they removed her clothing. But I'd leave out the rest for yourself to fill in. Goes one step too far at the end for my liking. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 19:41, March 13, 2020 (UTC)


I'm starting to add autocontrast to your weapons images. Gives them more vibrant color. NIF renders are a bit bland. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 16:47, March 14, 2020 (UTC)

Cait Edit

that reference does not ONCE allude to sexual slavery. you are really grasping at straws with this. she mentions doing horrible things, which could be anything. for example she may have been forced to fight other slaves for the entertainment of the slavers(which makes much more sense given her current occupation at the combat zone). you can't use the 'environmental details' argument her either. As for the stealing from a sleeping man that could just as well imply that she learn how to steal quietly (again backed up by her skill with lockpicks). Unless you have more solid evidence please remove her from the list.--Branebriar1930 (talk) 14:04, April 4, 2020 (UTC)

What do you mean? there IS NO EVIDENCE that she was a sex slave you're only assuming she was. She was a slave who was forced to do 'horrible things' you have no right to claim what those things were. you know the rules about speculation.--Branebriar1930 (talk) 15:03, April 4, 2020 (UTC)

Substance abuse and trust issues are not always the result of sexual assault. she was a slave of course she's traumatized. her parents sold her of course she has trust issues but you are still assuming that sexual assault was involved. im not saying she wasn't sexually assaulted, she probably was, but as its not explicitly mentioned or shown, i don't see how this is anything but jumping to conclusions.

You are still working with a lot of assumptions. perhaps she was a servant and as such had a measure of freedom. they could have 'used' for any number of sickening things like killing other slaves or shoveling s*** for all we know. and nuka world is a bad reference. not all slaves sleep in cages. think of the pitt. Sending slaves to go collect metal in a place like the mill could just as easily result in someone saying 'The way they used me made me sick to my stomach'. you must see how anyone can fill in their own assumptions about what cait when through, exactly like im doing now.

You must see that you are creating your own story with insufficient information, however likely it may be.--Branebriar1930 (talk) 16:03, April 4, 2020 (UTC)

You LITERALLY just used the word 'implying' you know we don't use that kind of terminology. i repeat: you are working off of assumptions and insufficient information.--Branebriar1930 (talk) 16:17, April 4, 2020 (UTC)

You are blatantly ignoring the agreed upon rules regarding speculating to fit your own narrative. your references are vague and your reasoning is convoluted. This is pretty much a carbon copy of the argument you had with greatmara except now you can't even rely on the 'environmental details' argument. you don't seem to see the inevitable can of worms you're about to open.

Regardless you won't listen to me so im not going to push anymore. Ive asked jp for his opinion.

Mysterious caveEdit

What do you think? Is the Mysterious cave (Wastelanders) worth a seperate page or merge it with Vault 79? We could spend a section on it if merging. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 17:40, April 19, 2020 (UTC)


Can you at least leave a summary comment when you make large changes to (important) pages, like the one just now on Rose of Sharon Cassidy? It's common courtesy and leaving a good example from an admin. I asked you this before. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 11:37, April 25, 2020 (UTC)

Wastelanders iconEdit

I don't like it. Too much black around the lettering, it has become worse. Guess something for the merge Discord box. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 18:13, April 29, 2020 (UTC)

Put some color in it plz. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 18:19, April 29, 2020 (UTC)

Flag pixEdit

Thanks for help with the flag pic the other day, I didn't know about the era of what flag to choose. So I appreciate your knowledge! -Kate (Kdarrow (talk) 19:45, May 8, 2020 (UTC))

Re:New Company Pages Edit

Yeah sorry about that. I forgot.i didn’t know that was important

My first ever thank you Edit

Thanks for your edit to Video Games, it was a good edit :)

grandmother Edit

hey there i undid that page because we don't know for sure that she was nate's ancestor, nate's gggf may have had nate's great-grand parent with some one else.--Branebriar1930 (talk) 13:26, June 4, 2020 (UTC)

I guess it is pretty likely that the woman is his gggm but is the son really the ggf? the couple could have had another child?--Branebriar1930 (talk) 13:35, June 4, 2020 (UTC)

I agree i'll will leave it for now--Branebriar1930 (talk) 13:45, June 4, 2020 (UTC)

Another problem is that that image of grandma has a nuka cola bottle in it. the fallout 4 intro page says that this could mean that the image is actually of a toddler nate with his mom.

I changed it because it would be inconsistent with the intro's sequencing, and just chalked it up to dev oversight. what do you think?--Branebriar1930 (talk) 13:51, June 4, 2020 (UTC)

Splitting junk pagesEdit

Could you give your opinion on Forum:Splitting junk item pages in FO4 and FO76? Jspoel Speech Jspoel 11:51, June 7, 2020 (UTC)

dreamcar Edit

Hey thanks for dealing with the marcy long page but i think that dreamcar should have been banned instead, since this is not the first time they have vandalized a page and they may just keep undoing the edits once the lock is up--Branebriar1930 (talk) 13:12, June 9, 2020 (UTC)

companion family Edit

Hey I wanted to let you know that I undid the changes you made regarding the SS and their companions. I really can't see how companions can be considered 'family' if just because you romance them. as that's really stretching the definition of family. Technically girlfriends and boyfriends aren't really 'family' per se. Admittedly family can be quite an ambiguous term, as some people consider their close friends to be family. However if we are being strict we should really only put relations under family if they are related by blood or marriage.

Perhaps we should actually change the term in the infobox to 'relationships' instead of family, as that would cover a much broader spectrum of relations?--Branebriar1930 (talk) 13:09, June 20, 2020 (UTC)

Yeah i guess, I still think 'family' is the wrong word for it though.--Branebriar1930 (talk) 15:25, June 20, 2020 (UTC)


Hey i wanted to let you know that there is an autonomous user adding large sections to the various prewar commonwealths and are making multiple grammatical errors. The errors aren't terrible on their own (though below our standards), the problem is they don't respond to messages and simply continue making the same mistakes over and over again. i have been doing my best to clean up after them but its getting frustrating when they won't respond. Anything you can do? thanks--Branebriar1930 (talk) 21:38, June 20, 2020 (UTC)

bos page Edit

Hey could you maybe unlock the bos page soonish? its a pretty big and important page to have locked down for so long.--Branebriar1930 (talk) 11:49, June 25, 2020 (UTC)

Actually meant to message AYF about this, apologies.--Branebriar1930 (talk) 17:19, June 25, 2020 (UTC)

New guy checking in


Found your name in the Welcome Wagon section.

I'm new to the Wiki and would like to contribute, and would like to do so correctly (as per established standards).

Some guidance would be appreciated. I'm not sure what's your preferred method of contact, so I'll keep an eye out for notifications. I'm from South Africa, timezone GMT+2.

In the meantime I'm going to watch the video guides and see if my answers are there.

Regards! Teldae81 (talk) 06:16, July 14, 2020 (UTC)


Hi Dave, thank you for voting yes on my admin application. I will do my best to live up to the work you and the other admins have done. I wanted to say also that your encouragement was the reason I stayed on and keep editing when I was brand new, and I appreciate it more than words can say. I am so glad I did because I love it here :) -Kate (Kdarrow (talk) 09:53, July 20, 2020 (UTC))


What happened to your username, it's been changed to a weird name. Same thing happened to Ausir. Did you ask for it? Just wondering. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 19:40, July 21, 2020 (UTC)

Do you have an unresolved Fandom and Gamepedia log-in? This may be related to the announcements MisterWoodhouse has been pushing. [1] Great Mara (talk) 20:04, July 21, 2020 (UTC)
Just gonna chime in with my two cents, one of our former staff members, whose account has been deactivated, The Gunny, had the same thing happen to his account. Richie9999 (talk) 21:58, July 21, 2020 (UTC)
Mara is correct, it is a result of a username conflict. Gamepedia/Fandom usernames were merged today.

Is there a Discussion page for the Nukapedia Fandom anymore?

Image requestEdit

I have another image for you that could look better if enlarged: Thorn traits. Can you take a look at it? Jspoel Speech Jspoel 19:11, September 21, 2020 (UTC)

Actually, a lot of Category:Fallout Tactics traits images are rather small. May something for the future to look at when you have time. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 19:13, September 21, 2020 (UTC)

Your vote Edit

Thanks a lot for your vote Dave.--Branebriar1930 (talk) 20:43, September 24, 2020 (UTC)
