Synths/Androids/Windows/iOS[edit source]

The title header is a joke, now for the real part regarding of your edits: Harkness and Armitage was indeed synths although in Fallout 3, term should take precedence on the Fallout 3 articles, links do explain that they are the same thing thou. ------Cassie I can see you. 05:42, January 26, 2016 (UTC)

Vault-Tec Rep edits[edit source]

I don't believe it bears a different meaning simply because of the addition of cryogenic stasis. This is only my theory, but I think it was specified because he appears twice in the game at two different ages. The 220 chronological age is probably mentioned because he is 220+ by the end of the game. We don't know his age during the pre-war segment. Same thing with the Sole Survivor. I think if we remove chronological from one article, we'd have to remove it from both articles (and any others that mention age that way), or we'll have to leave it in all articles because it doesn't have anything to do with cryogenic stasis.

Sorry, had multiple tabs open to edit and hit undo on the wrong one, I've redone your edit. Aiden4017 (talk) 19:09, May 6, 2019 (UTC)

Unlikely Valentine[edit source]

I'm not sure if it's your mods or I mistyped from the game scripts on that one. I'll check it when I get home. Sakaratte - Talk to the catmin 06:30, July 5, 2018 (UTC)

Fun fact: In game codsworth does say Mister Assface. (its a legit name.) so you don't have a reason to remove that name from the list.

nvm i just saw you just re located the name, i didn't notice that you have to put it in alphabetical order. welp thanks for changing it i suppose. sorry

Oxford commas[edit source]

I noticed your revert on Vault regarding the Oxford commas. I recall that somewhere in our manual of style (I was looking for it before I messaged you, but no avail and I'm not at my desktop) that "Oxford commas should be used sparingly). I'll find you the relevant link shortly, but as I'm comfortable it is part of policy I am going to revert to Mara's version for the interim. If I discover it has been removed and leaves room for ambiguity as to what the rule is, I think it needs thrashing out in forums as I don't recall us removing that rule.

Ah, my B. Thanks for letting me know.--DirtyBlue929 (talk) 19:04, November 3, 2018 (UTC)
If you have to use "I don't really me to..." at the start of the sentence, then yes, you really do. Oxford commas are a waste of page space and not necessary grammatically as the and/or breaks up the end of the sentence. They should only be used to prevent ambiguity, which doesn't occur in a simple listing of items. Great Mara (talk) 19:30, November 3, 2018 (UTC)
Honestly I start some edits like that because I've been temp-blocked on other wikis by triggerhappy mods/admins for less. I'm just paranoid; don't mean to offend or anything, honest.--DirtyBlue929 (talk) 03:30, November 4, 2018 (UTC)

Vandal[edit source]

Thanks for stopping that vandal. Don't let vandals get under your skin though. Calling another user names is against the rules, even vandals. DisgustingWastelander (talk) 21:44, November 10, 2018 (UTC)

Sorry[edit source]

Thanks for warning me about the edits. I'll try to make more useful edits to the wiki. AssassinZ05 (talk) 19:43, May 14, 2019 (UTC)AssassinZ05

But why don't we do modding thingys on Nukapedia. Bethesda is one of the most supportive game designes towards modding. They literally made modding way easier and are willing to have the players of fallout mod too. So why not talk about it on here and make it a part of the wiki.

untitled message[edit source]

Dear sir/ma’am, I did not mean to offend I merely did not know how to put said quote into footnotes I did not intentionally vandalize. I was putting in what I thought was a legitimate fact and tried to explain my reasoning for doing so by providing evidence to back up my claim and prove it was not speculation . Furthermore, I asked was this correct and for reasons why, none of which were given only people deleting my editing without telling me why. When they did, claiming it was speculation they did not back up their arguements with any proof they just undid them. Thus I felt justified in undoing their undos and continuing to try to prove my point All in all I did not mean to cause trouble. If I offended you or anyone else please accept my humble apologies

Regarding enclave edits i'm new to this whole profile thing:I only figured out how to send messages when you contacted me AFTER i had done those edits. It was merely ignorance not malicious intent. --—Preceding unsigned comment added by Slaugth324 (talkcontribs). Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

Furthermore I thought that the commonwealth would remnants meant that the enclave were still extant by 2287 were they just stragglers sir/ma’am?--—Preceding unsigned comment added by Slaugth324 (talkcontribs). Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

untitled message 2[edit source]

sorry. I'm new to this whole edit thing, and I really didn't know how to edit the page at first so I had to go look at the other pages and see the edits and try to understand how the whole thing works exactly so, sorry if I messed it up. I'm still self-learning on how to make these edits work--—Preceding unsigned comment added by Kv0224 (talkcontribs). Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

Nukapedia - Vault Merger: voting has reopened[edit source]


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 recommending read through it.

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.

Re:"Goverment"[edit source]

I'm well aware of the correct spelling, the template for the infobox faction had it spelt incorrectly, and as such, needed to be spelt the same way for the section to work. Fortunately, Jspoelstra came in and fixed the template, I didn't think about fixing the template myself due to thinking there would be a bunch of other pages that use the template and they would no doubt mess up if I changed it myself if they already had the section spelt as how it was previously. No need to make a fuss about it. RedWolf72 (talk) 00:15, November 13, 2019 (UTC)

Courier's position within the Divide[edit source]

Regarding the Courier's Divide leadership, Lonesome Road's dialogue establishes that the Courier had much, if not the entire, responsibility of forming and leading the early community that came from the Divide. Regardless if it were a simple trade route, people followed the Courier, and decided to stay, while the Courier went East and West, keeping the location alive. In the same vein as The Postman novel, where a postman is responsible for the birth of a small nation, although largely different in both contexts. The topic has been discussed before, but those are the main gists of the points made. JCB2077 (talk) 01:34, August 19, 2020 (UTC)

While there is a point to be made in the Mad Max comparison, it kind of falls flat on its face considering the real motivations and themes of the groups. To extremely simplify both medias, the Postman is of an idea, a symbol, leading to the founding of a nation. A rebirth, so to speak. In Mad Max, freedom plays a part, but it's also about struggling in a harsh wasteland and simple survival. I don't want to diminish the movies so carelessly, but from Ulysses dialogue, it's clear the Courier returned, the only Courier ever willing to walk that path, not once; over and over and over. People followed that person, man or woman, and ended up creating not a community, but an entirely new civilization out of it, built out of a simple idea. The American flag.
Although we don't know all the details, and probably never will, it's clear the Courier was the effective founder of the Divide. And while a founder can be a leader or otherwise a champion of some thematic extent or idea, and the Courier certainly would have had to be at some moment in time, due to various bouts of dialogue and context given from Ulysses, we simply don't know to what extent they were a leader, but the point remains that they are, in fact, a leader. JCB2077 (talk) 02:30, August 19, 2020 (UTC)
The Courier doesn't have amnesia, simple as that. Says right on the Courier page. From Sawyer. JCB2077 (talk) 03:01, August 19, 2020 (UTC)
