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

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

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

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. Sakaratte - Talk to the catmin 18:56, November 3, 2018 (UTC)

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)


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)


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.

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 ~~~~!

untitled message 2

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 ~~~~!

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

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)


I didn't see that part I'll consult and inform you next time before it's and I've edited it. User:Johnnyboy123450 (talk) 06:03, January 30, 2021 (UTC)

Solid work!

Hey there, Kate here, just wanted to swing by and let you know that you are doing an absolutely fabulous job here. I have noticed the high-level edits you have been making, what a good eye for detail you have, and how much of a positive impact you make on the community really each and every day. You are down to earth, bright, introspective, and inquisitive - so many good qualities as an editor and person overall. I see a bright future for you here, you little rising star, you! Keep up the good work, you have my support and thanks. -kate (kdarrow Pickman heart.png take her for a spin! 21:53, 9 April 2021 (UTC))

I've reverted some of your images. Preferences is getting the image while in conversation mode, yours are all outside of that. I did leave some intact where it's debatable which one's better (resolution). Jspoel Speech Jspoel.png 14:30, 8 May 2021 (UTC)

Yeah, on second thought, later on, I thought mine were mostly prefered/better. I also took plenty of time getting those screenshots. Generally, I was missing the conversation mode (though I have a few of these myself), and your character didn't look in the camera so to speak. Jspoel Speech Jspoel.png 16:37, 10 May 2021 (UTC)
I actually like the background be somewhat blurry for infobox images, focuses on the character. Just replaced Haylen (couldn't get this image earlier), think we should use this format, and you already see it on almost all Fo4 character pages. Your images, which show more of the character, are better fitted for gallery. Jspoel Speech Jspoel.png 18:01, 10 May 2021 (UTC)
I don't agree with you that there should be much less surroundings, I like it, it shows a bit of the area the character is in, and is very recognizable from the interaction mode in the game. If we take your format, the characters will be cramped too much into the box. I can see some of your point though, generally the 16 to 9 format is a bit stretched, for example I cut the Haylen image 8 to 5. Jspoel Speech Jspoel.png 20:45, 11 May 2021 (UTC)
The infobox images you presented are from movies, and is a different setting. They don't use conversation mode. We've used our conversation format with Fo3, FNV, Fo4, though not in Fo76. I might be willing to reduce the format to 3:2, but not to portrait. We should keep the landscape format in my opinion. Portrait shots can go in the gallery. Jspoel Speech Jspoel.png 15:12, 12 May 2021 (UTC)
I figured the comparison with Fo3 and FNV character images would come up eventually. In my opinion, the interaction mode fits very well with Fallout 4 and we should keep it for the main infobox page. If you cut it to square it appears boxed in for me and doesn't fit the sideway look style of the character. I'm willing to give in somewhat, and change it to 3:2 format. Jspoel Speech Jspoel.png 21:16, 15 May 2021 (UTC)

Your 2 cents

Actually I disagree with you, I would say that not responding and still being somewhat active (which I did check) IS a good reason to assume someone is done with a convo. I also didn't undo his changes until the next day. I'm sorry to hear about the food poisoning and I get that he is your friend, but you can't seriously expect me to just sit around waiting when I feel as though something on the wiki is amiss.

Anyway, hope he gets better soon.Branebriar1930 (talk) 18:43, 11 May 2021 (UTC)

Free States Sign

About the sign, I didn't realize it was an ATX item so no worries about it. Although the "Territories" name is an interpretation in the end, it could be or not an alternate name. But unless I find something else I won't push it, so no worries either. --Ryon21 Ryon21 Signature Image.png (talk) 22:24, 29 June 2021 (UTC)

Role update

Heyo my friend. I updated patroller roles today and removed those who are tending to other hobbies at the moment, which is totally fine. If you want to start up again here, just say the word and I'll grant the tools again without hesitation. Hope you and yours are doing well! -kdarrow Pickman heart.png take her for a spin! 21:35, 13 January 2022 (UTC)

Pitt article

Hi Blue, I saw your note on your user page and it made me feel bad. I didn't mean to impugn your work on the Pitt page, I was just trying to focus it on the location instead of the characters/quests. If there are any parts that you think should really stay, I am ok with adding them back. I am sorry to have made you frustrated. -kdarrow Pickman heart.png take her for a spin! 06:06, 30 March 2022 (UTC)


Thank you for your edits clarifying the Shanghai Sally story on the Timeline page. I don't think the descriptions are too long, and they reintroduce some critical context that would nullify the entire point of the story if left unincluded. LaymansReign (talk) 04:25, 13 August 2022 (UTC)
