Names

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.png 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.png 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.png 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.png 00:21, September 14, 2019 (UTC)

Images

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.png 15:27, September 14, 2019 (UTC)

Categories

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.png 16:09, September 14, 2019 (UTC)

FEV NZ

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

Kovac

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

Wastelad

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.png 16:29, September 23, 2019 (UTC)

Ghost people

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

Karma images

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.png 15:43, September 30, 2019 (UTC)

Great! Thanks in advance. (What program/tool are you doing it with?) Jspoel Speech Jspoel.png 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.png 13:09, October 11, 2019 (UTC)

Nukapedia - Vault Merger: voting has reopened

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,

The Dyre Wolf (talk) 11:40, October 28, 2019 (UTC)

Why delete my article

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

Hated image

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.png 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.png 17:03, November 1, 2019 (UTC)

Much gratitude

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)

Companies

Don't go too fast with these new pages. Check for oversights and links like I just corrected in a navbox. Jspoel Speech Jspoel.png 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.png 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.png 15:20, December 7, 2019 (UTC)

Why did you delete my post?

Hey, question, why did you remove a post "Can't exit vault 111 at all" https://fallout.fandom.com/wiki/Can%27t_leave_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.

Smh.

Navbox

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

Thanks

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 letters

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 kettle.pngWould you like a cup of tea? 07:03, January 21, 2020 (UTC)

Merging

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.png 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.png 23:43, January 23, 2020 (UTC)

NTV Awards 2019

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.

Tandi

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

Vault Academy

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

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

.44 pistol (FO4)

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

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.png 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.png 19:41, March 13, 2020 (UTC)

Autocontrast

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

Cait

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 cave

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.png 17:40, April 19, 2020 (UTC)

Summary

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.png 11:37, April 25, 2020 (UTC)

Wastelanders icon

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.png 18:13, April 29, 2020 (UTC)

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

Flag pix

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

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


My first ever thank you

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

grandmother

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 pages

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

dreamcar

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

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)

Commonwealths

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

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

Morning!

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)

Heyooo

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))

Username

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.png 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.

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

Call to Action

There have been quite a few sweeping changes to the wiki lately, and now that the Unified Community Platform has come to fruition here, it's more important than ever for our leadership to get together and inspire innovative changes for the next generation of wiki editors/readers.

As someone who is somewhat inactive myself, I understand how life gets in the way, and I'll fully understand if many of you are unable to commit, but I'd still like to try my best to appeal to you all in getting involved in a few of our currently active projects; especially so since rights-users participating in our discussions/votes are at an all-time low, and many internal decisions are having to be made between a select few users, which is bad for building consensus on important matters.

As such, I would like to ask for you all to look into two of our most important projects right now, as it would mean a lot to me and the wiki if as many people as possible got directly involved in helping shape our future:

  1. The Vault Academy is a program for the training and acclimation of new and even veteran users, training them on how to get involved in the various facets of the wiki, as well as helping them build bonds with their fellow users. The program has kicked off in a big way, and we are in desperate need of more rights-users to sign on as mentors, as we're having to share multiple mentees between each mentor. If you're looking to leave your mark on the wiki, then signing onto TVA program will be your way of doing so.
  2. As a minor update, we now have a new plagiarism point of contact. Should you suspect plagiarized content is at play, please get into point with the user FDekker who will be the initial handler of all such cases going forward.
  3. We have an upcoming meeting of the minds coming up on the 20th of this month, and we need people to come forth and pitch their ideas for adapting to the recent UCP changes, and to possibly adopt some of the ideas that our new datamining friends have been pitching to us.

Thanks for your consideration, and I do hope to hear back from you all! Even if it is just some of you dropping by to check the place out and say a quick hello. 寧靜 Fox.png 14:09, 13 November 2020 (UTC)

Hi love! Icon heart.png Icon heart.png Whoa cool, I agree, looks like they reused the FNV design. How awesome is that? I am writing a BTS on it instead of linking, so not to confuse readers. Just in case you see a change here shortly <3 -kdarrow Pickman heart.png take her for a spin! 04:51, 8 December 2020 (UTC)

Hey Dave, I've had several complaints about your treatment of the detonator debacle - especially the way you edited in the BtS section back in after Kate protected the article. This isn't something we should be doing, no matter how much we believe we are in the right (recall my teeth-gnashing when it came to one of the former users). I know this is uncharacteristic of you, so I'm concerned - is everything all right? Tägäżïël 09:43, 9 December 2020 (UTC)

Script notes

Hi Dave, saw your note. Not sure if you read the recent tidbits about script notes from the Bethesda devs, but just recently they told us that the script notes are not canon. So we can't use them to determine dates sadly :( Just wanted to give you a heads up before I made any changes. I can find the link to the dev stream if you'd like, just lemme know. Ta ta for now <3 --kdarrow Pickman heart.png take her for a spin! 06:46, 14 January 2021 (UTC)

Warning, edit warring

Hi Dave, I reviewed the recent edits on the hotdog article and am giving you a warning for edit warring. Our policies clearly outline how we should approach these situations and I have spoken a few times previously with you about utilizing talk pages to reach consensus and the importance of communicating instead of reverting.

On this article specifically, a staff member removed a paragraph and left an edit summary explaining that references were needed (edit 1). You subsequently reverted, without adding the needed reference or leaving an edit summary of your changes (edit 2). The paragraph was removed by another user, explaining in their edit summary once more that a reference was needed (edit 3). In response, you reverted again, adding the paragraph back without an edit summary, needed references, or attempt at a talk page discussion (edit 4).

I know that it is a challenge sometimes to remember these policies when editing en masse but it is very important that we open these lines of communication with other users, as well as provide a good example with our actions when it comes to mediation and upholding our own guidelines, especially as leaders in the community. Hopefully, we can all work together in the future productively on this most excellent site we all love. Let me know if I can help in any way. --kdarrow Pickman heart.png take her for a spin! 18:31, 21 January 2021 (UTC)

Ah ok, that makes sense I guess, lot of work though to do though. Branebriar1930 (talk) 22:00, 22 January 2021 (UTC)

Date of death

Hi Dave, saw some comments going back and forth between you, Great Mara, Brane. I think that we should not add date of death for any character that is not dead as of the game's beginning or seen dying despite player choice in game. Otherwise, we would have to add date of deaths for a lot of characters, which may or may not be the case depending on those choices (Caesar, House, Oliver, among scores of others across games). At least lets make a forum on it or get some more overall feedback before making large changes. That way we can all be on board and help with any needed changes :) --kdarrow Pickman heart.png take her for a spin! 22:11, 22 January 2021 (UTC)

Before any changes are made about adding date of deaths to characters, we need to make a forum asking for the input of everyone. It is a significant change. Let me know if you want me to take point on it, I am happy to help. --kdarrow Pickman heart.png take her for a spin! 23:27, 22 January 2021 (UTC)
Should clarify, I totally don't mean characters that we can literally see dead in game, those are aok. I mean those who may or may not die depending on player choice. I did not change any of those that you did. :) We will get it figured out together, just lemme know! --kdarrow Pickman heart.png take her for a spin! 23:31, 22 January 2021 (UTC)

Carter

Hey there! I asked another admin to do an impartial review so that we don't end up with any edit wars. This date of death seems to be a hot topic today! I'll defer to kdarrow's judgment. Thanks for taking the time to write to me!

Re Gender and machines

Hi Dave, I thought about what you said a bit and can see where you are coming from. I was thinking about it more the way you first described, like hey this is weird?! But I agree with you that it is important to include and appreciate you explaining it that way. Thanks for the heads up, carry on! --kdarrow Pickman heart.png take her for a spin! 10:42, 23 January 2021 (UTC)

Sexual assault

Hey dave. I'm guessing you missed the conversation. We are trying to change the wording to be less intense in order to help mitigate some of the issues with how distressing the discussion of sexual violence can be. Please make sure to be cognizant of that going forward. Thanks -Eckserah User Eckserah.png Head Dataminer 07:11, 24 January 2021 (UTC)

Flavia Stabo

Hey there! I've been trying to find some sort of in-game reference to the date of death for Flavia Stabo, but I haven't been able to find anything yet. Where were you able to find the 2077 date?

Hmmm, I'll talk to Scribe-Howard then. I don't see any dates on those notes to give context for the "missing for months" - i.e. missing for months as of January 2072 or missing for months as of October 2077? I get the feeling that there's a verifiable timeline here somewhere between all of the people Flavia interacted with, the news articles surrounding Vault 79, etc. I'll keep looking as well. If you find anything in the meantime, I'd love to know!

Re Chosen One

Can you add the actual dialogue lines for me? I couldn't fine em. I appreciate it <3 --kdarrow Pickman heart.png take her for a spin! 05:11, 29 January 2021 (UTC)

Edit warring

Hey Dave, I know that you're an admin and everything, but you don't get to just revert someone who has reverted you for a valid reason. That is considered edit warring. You've done that a lot lately. You left no talk page message, nothing on my page, and also nothing on discord so as a result of you doing this many times I'm going to file a formal complaint. Thanks, -Eckserah User Eckserah.png Head Dataminer 08:04, 1 February 2021 (UTC)

Enclave power armor

Can you take a look at the Enclave power armor page? You removed content, now it's giving reference errors. Jspoel Speech Jspoel.png 19:10, 17 February 2021 (UTC)

It's been fixed by Eckserah. Jspoel Speech Jspoel.png 20:03, 17 February 2021 (UTC)

Psykers

Can I at least hear your argument in regards to why the SBQ should be there, so that we don't stoop to a petty, dialogueless edit-war? Branebriar1930 (talk) 16:00, 19 March 2021 (UTC)

There is no evidence that the hive mind is 'supernatural' in nature. It could very well be that the plague is just very sophisticated. Regardless, the page refers to psykers as people or creatures, and if the plague causes the hivemind it would not classify as a psyker anyway, as its not a person or creature.

Tablepalooza

Heyo love, I wanted to see if you have any feedback on that table on the disease article, I just fashioned 'er yesterday. I think it looks cleaner, do you? I went back and forth about how to do it, collapsible or not, sections to include. Hopefully it looks ok, figured I'd ask what you think! -kate (kdarrow Pickman heart.png take her for a spin! 14:47, 23 March 2021 (UTC))

A fine idea, a mighty fine idea indeed! Never can have too many mentions of THE BLIGHT on a wiki, I always say. -kdarrow Pickman heart.png take her for a spin! 17:09, 23 March 2021 (UTC)

Hahaha every time I see Armor Ace and the Power Patrol I can't help but read it as Paw Patrol. Ahhhh good times. kdarrow Pickman heart.png take her for a spin! 23:55, 25 March 2021 (UTC)

References and edit summaries

Hey there, I have been patrolling your edits and appreciate the contributions. I just wanted to remind you that each edit other than minor edits need an edit summary. Here is a quick guide I wrote that sort of explains how to leave an edit summary step by step and the reason they are needed. The last edits of yours I have patrolled also lacked references. Make sure that each piece of information that is added to this wiki has a reference to support it (see my edits on your additions to Atomic Wrangler Casino and Dog and God for a few examples of what kind of references are needed and how they are formatted). Let me know if I can help in any other way, and thanks again for adding this valuable info, very cool! -kdarrow Pickman heart.png take her for a spin! 05:24, 28 March 2021 (UTC)

Just trying to help you with the policies, my friend. It may be clear to you and what you know, but you need to follow this policy and leave what you know as references so that others can verify what you add. It is very important and why the policies exist. Helps us all work together to make Nukapedia a reliable source of info. Also, please see my comments on edit summaries. I checked your contribution list and you have only left 6 summaries out of your last 500 contributions. This is a very important part of user conduct, communicating these changes to others. Please reach out if you have any questions, I have more resources that I am happy to share to help you out. kdarrow Pickman heart.png take her for a spin! 05:59, 28 March 2021 (UTC)

Reference issues

I saw your edit summary on jet plane and I agree that not every edit needs a reference. However, to quote your summary, "This is an observable thing on the aircraft. It's like needing an citation for calling the vertibird a VTOL" to which I want to clarify our policies dictate that we would, in fact, require a reference for calling a vertibird a VTOL. I did not know what it stood for, nor should we assume our readers would. Thankfully for us, the vertibird article is referenced quite well, noting this information on the very first line. Let me know if I can provide any resources for you when it comes to judgment calls on adding verifiable references to the wiki. I am happy to help! -kdarrow Pickman heart.png take her for a spin! 04:12, 4 April 2021 (UTC)

Solutions

Hey, Dave

We haven't really gotten much of a chance to interact much on the wiki lately since I'm not nearly as active here anymore as I used to be, and that's something I'm sorry about, because I remember how much work we used to get done together waaay back in the day.

Hopefully we can get back to those sorts of positive experiences again soon, but for now, I'm having to follow up on some complaints that were DM'd to me, and I'm hoping I can settle a particular conflict currently going on with the Emmet MT page. So a while back, I had to really start cracking down on edit-warring because of the whole Sole situation when it first started becoming a situation, and that ended up being a miserable experience for not just him but for everyone, because it meant I was having to scrutinize *everyone* to make sure that the rules were being applied fairly and evenly.

It's not just you, but it seems like edit-warring has become a big issue again lately, including among our administration, and this is an issue I'd really rather try and clear up amicably before it gets to the point again where the book has to start being thrown at people. I can share the list that was sent to me if you'd like, but as it currently stands, you have been a repeat offender of simply edit-warring rather than taking disputes to the article talk-pages, and as peers, I'd really like to try and improve upon that, maybe talk some things through, I'll even volunteer to be a mediator in your stead if that's what it'll take. But the edit-warring really has to stop, and that's something I'm going to have to approach multiple other editors over as well.

As for the Emmet article in particular, cut content can have some important implications, and I understand why you want to keep that information intact. I already discussed the matter with the other party as well, and as a compromise solution I hope to have worked out, I'd also like to see that information remain, yet moved to a BtS section with the Cut Content tag clearly added so that there's no confusion to our readers. Is that a solution that satisfies you as well?

In any case, I hope to hear back from you, and I'll be keeping an eye on my talk-page. Happy editing. 寧靜 Fox.png 02:27, 8 April 2021 (UTC)

Since you're happy with the cut content solution, I'll go ahead and amend the article and get that one out of the way and done with. As for the rest, lemme look over the article again, see what the issue is there, and find out what's what. And yeah man, if you want to take things to Discord, just DM me at your convenience. 寧靜 Fox.png 11:15, 8 April 2021 (UTC)
So I'm hoping to conclude this editing dispute, and after talking to the other party, it looks like they're pretty close to being happy with what we've got. I'd like to step in and help re-write the article a bit, clear up some of the ambigious writing, and I'd like your blessing as well before I move forward with that. Hopefully afterwards everyone can be happy with the final result and we can all move on. Lemme know your thoughts at your earliest convenience. 寧靜 Fox.png 04:07, 9 April 2021 (UTC)
Awesome. I'll hit the article in a bit and send you the diff after I've finished up so you can look it over. 寧靜 Fox.png 04:58, 9 April 2021 (UTC)

Re-write

I finally got around to re-writing that article, and I hope it's a good fit for both parties. For reference, please check out the Emmett Mountain disposal site article and let me know your thoughts. 寧靜 Fox.png 16:49, 9 April 2021 (UTC)

Thanks for correcting me - I was trying to find some good in-game shots, and it looks like I found the wrong kinda barrels on my own. The other party also just corrected me on this, so I apologize for that error.
As for the rest, I was trying to avoid redundancies, but lemme see if I work some of that information back in to give our readers something to think about. 寧靜 Fox.png 17:14, 9 April 2021 (UTC)
Okay; I made sure to add a mention of the super mutant body parts back into the main article. Is that going to be good for you? It gives the readers something to think about without beating them over the head with it. 寧靜 Fox.png 17:23, 9 April 2021 (UTC)

Fallout 2d20 perk images

Dave, you uploaded Fallout 2d20 perk images, but they're unused at the moment. Can you give them a page? Jspoel Speech Jspoel.png 12:50, 18 April 2021 (UTC)
