Welcome to Nukapedia!

Greetings, Eckserah, and welcome to the Fallout Wiki!


If you have questions, please feel free to ask one of our administrators or moderators or head over to our Discord. We look forward to working with you!

Frontier help

Another favor to ask, can you take a look at the Frontier location infobox template? An editor told me they were writing Adam Gaileon's Shop article and the main image wasn't automatically sizing to 240px. They are right, and I tried by best to figure it out with no luck. For the time being, I moved image to map marker image and map marker image to local map, but maybe you can look and see what I am missing. Also, congrats on 2k! I am going to cry, my mentees grow up so fast! kdarrow Pickman heart.png take her for a spin! 23:57, 18 February 2021 (UTC)

Workshop objects requirements

Do you know how to figure out requirements for workshop objects? (Season reqs etc.) I'm working on these object pages and I can't find the requirements using Eckedit (is that program yours?). At the moment I'm filling in learned by default just to get rid of that category, but that's not a very good way. Jspoel Speech Jspoel.png 18:40, 20 February 2021 (UTC)

And generally also how to find the crafting items for the objects. They're in miscellaneous branches, can't always find them. Jspoel Speech Jspoel.png 18:59, 20 February 2021 (UTC)

Crafting table

Can you add an extra parameter for plan in the crafting table template? A question mark which should give "Unknown" with the Learn method. Jspoel Speech Jspoel.png 13:31, 21 February 2021 (UTC)

Your recent edit to the template doesn't work out. Look at Milk vending machine (Fallout 76), learned from plan/recipe is listed twice. Jspoel Speech Jspoel.png 13:33, 21 February 2021 (UTC)


Thanks, should be helpful for anyone wanting to start using it. I already use it, though I see I need an update. Jspoel Speech Jspoel.png 13:58, 28 February 2021 (UTC)


Do you know why crafting tables on weapon mod pages are bolded, like Full_stock_(Fallout_76)? Jspoel Speech Jspoel.png 18:07, 28 February 2021 (UTC)

All Rise

What description? The table is empty. Making it full size makes the article format look like garbo in my opinion. -kdarrow Pickman heart.png take her for a spin! 22:22, 2 March 2021 (UTC)

As I see now. It looks great, keep up the solid work. -kdarrow Pickman heart.png take her for a spin! 22:51, 2 March 2021 (UTC)


I'm reverting the use of the {{in FO76}}. It is nonsense to use a template for that. I'm not that pleased with all these new templates coming up and no one except the ones creating them know how to use them/are using them. Jspoel Speech Jspoel.png 21:38, 5 March 2021 (UTC)

Interactions FO76

Can you do something about the empty lines that appear when parameters are void in Fallout 76 interactions boxes ({{Interactions FO76}})? Example is Solomon Hardy. It looks bad. Jspoel Speech Jspoel.png 20:31, 7 March 2021 (UTC)

Need assistance for a template

Hello Eckserah.
I am one of the admins of the french Fallout wiki and I need your help with a template you created. It's about the Template:Crafting table FO76. We are trying to set it up on our wiki but we have a problem. These lines ({{#forargs: ) may be the source of our problem. We don't understand what it is and we don't know how to solve it.
Are we missing another model or module? Did we miss something? I will appreciate if you can tell us what is wrong so that we can correct the template.
Cordially. Ryoma Sakamoto (talk) 10:17, 9 March 2021 (UTC)

Thank you for your help. I contacted the Fandom staff and they activated the loops extension. The model is repaired. Everything works.

Re blog

I can turn my attention to it a little later on this evening. I am writing a big article from scratch and want to see that through first. Then I will, I promise. Stay tuned! -kdarrow Pickman heart.png take her for a spin! 03:47, 15 March 2021 (UTC)

Under construction template

Great idea on the under construction template/parameter add. I even tried it out with my signature and a variety of other zany things, works like a charm. Thanks for improving it! -kdarrow Pickman heart.png take her for a spin! 14:37, 17 March 2021 (UTC)

Atom template

That template was in the Category:Pages_using_duplicate_arguments_in_template_calls category and was caused by the link parameter being defined twice. You have to choose one. Is confirmed by the last option (Resized icon with value, different link, and tooltip) too. Jspoel Speech Jspoel.png 11:52, 19 March 2021 (UTC)

Locked & Loaded

Do you know why the Category:Section needed (Locked & Loaded) is named the way it is? It should be Locked and Loaded. Can't find it in {{Section}} related templates like {{abb}}. Where does it come from? Jspoel Speech Jspoel.png 16:10, 26 March 2021 (UTC)

Oh, now I see that too. It should actually be Locked & Loaded with the ampersand then for those pages. Looks like we should change that then. Still I'd like to know how that (Locked & Loaded) behind the section is created. Jspoel Speech Jspoel.png 20:49, 26 March 2021 (UTC)

Getting started

Thanks for the welcome! While I have a thing for Fallout lore and have an interest in contributing on that front, I also have an interest in helping out with the technical side of things if there's a need for that. I don't really have any proper experience with Wikis (though I know a bit of the syntax), but I'm a software engineer professionally and I can probably pick things up pretty quickly since I know the foundations. Is there any way I can get involved with that stuff? Thanks. ORDVAC (talk) 16:11, 2 April 2021 (UTC)

NVT 2020

Just stopping by with a little something for all of our NVT runners-up this year. Feel free to do with it what you will!

We're well into 2021, so maybe this year will be yours to claim! The Dyre Wolf (talk) 16:02, 8 April 2021 (UTC)


Hey, Eck

I'm sure you've seen by now, but I've already had to contact a few people regarding the recent edit-warring on the Emmett Mountain article, and you're next on the list I'm having to go through. I can understand how tempting it can be to go in and try to maintain the prior status quo when you see other editors continuing to edit-war, but in these cases, the best practice is always to alert an impartial administrator, and get them involved so that they can handle the situation as best they can.

When these cases do pop up, always remember that you have a few different options available to you:

  1. Send a message to the offending editor's talk-page, and try to open a dialogue.
  2. Stick to the article talk-page and try to reach a consensus of sorts.
  3. Contact an impartial user to act as a mediator, and see if a compromise can be reached.
  4. All of the above

I appreciate you taking all of what I've said into consideration though, and if you have any questions and/or concerns, my talk-page is always open. Happy editing. 寧靜 Fox.png 04:04, 9 April 2021 (UTC)


I sent Dave a message as well, but I got around to re-writing the Emmett Mountain disposal site article, and I'd like for the both of you to look it over, and let me know your thoughts. 寧靜 Fox.png 16:52, 9 April 2021 (UTC)

Infobox plan

Ok, I'll wait for that then. Jspoel Speech Jspoel.png 20:40, 12 April 2021 (UTC)


You need to categorize uploaded templates. I've just added a category to Template:ExplicitContentDisclaimer, you can update it later on. Also needs documentation but I reckon you're working on that. What's the purpose of this template? Also, we have an overview page for templates, Fallout Wiki:Templates, and Fallout Wiki:Template modernisation. Jspoel Speech Jspoel.png 13:21, 18 April 2021 (UTC)

Tagaziel tells me we don't really need it. I had my question marks as well, we do have copyright templates that can help us. We got by without these sort of templates in the past as well. Jspoel Speech Jspoel.png 16:13, 18 April 2021 (UTC)
I suppose you can add the documentation and then I can better see what it does. Jspoel Speech Jspoel.png 16:16, 18 April 2021 (UTC)
I'd need to see what the content of the disclaimer is and where you plan to use it before I can say we should use it or not. Up to this point, we never used this kind of template or were directed by Fandom to use it, so I'm reluctant at this point. So make a concept of this template and I'll take a look at it. Jspoel Speech Jspoel.png 12:03, 19 April 2021 (UTC)


Can't thank you enough for adding those eckstra params to world obj. It is going to allow my brain to not deflate. I appreciate your knowledge and willingness to help me with all these tiny kate things. I owe you! PS do you want to archive your talk page? Let me know if I can help, its kind of a jank process. -kate kdarrow Pickman heart.png take her for a spin! 09:32, 19 April 2021 (UTC)

Interactions fo76

Can you take a look at Template:Interactions FO76? The asterisks dont work well with multiple entries, they should convert to bullet point. Happens with the quests parameter and random encounter parameter. Examples are Responder volunteer and Delbert Winters. This is exact an example of which I'd say, first test it, then implement it. Jspoel Speech Jspoel.png 13:12, 23 April 2021 (UTC)

Thanks, that looks so much better! Jspoel Speech Jspoel.png 15:14, 26 April 2021 (UTC)

Template documentation

User sandboxes are one thing, the actual official examples of how templates should be used are another. "Individuality" is irrelevant because these are templates that are being used across the wiki, not by just one person. They should be accessible to everyone, and I especially contest the usage of them to mock other users, like what happened with the weapon infobox. I don't see why you're making this such a big deal, especially to the point of asking me not to do it again. I made the documentation more professional, and included the actual information related to the character. In fact, the previous version of the documentation left some parameters blank when they could easily be filled by information that's on Moriarty's page. This is something that means so little that I have to wonder if you have other intentions in making this into an issue. AllYourFavorites! 23:51, 30 April 2021 (UTC)

Does "wanker" count as identifying information? AllYourFavorites! 01:08, 1 May 2021 (UTC)

Interactions Fo76

Something is wrong with the Template:Interactions FO76, it doesn't convert parameters correctly. I've uploaded the error so you can see what I mean. Can you take a look at it? You can also check Solomon Hardy to see what it does. (doctor also misses an ending pipe in right column)Jspoel Speech Jspoel.png 14:26, 10 May 2021 (UTC)

Error interactions fo76.png


The Interloper is clearly indicated on the psyker page (along with the flatwoods monster), and we have used to word psyker to describe any being with supernatural abilities in all the games (such as Lorenzo Cabot from FO4 or the Forcaster from NV), and have done so for years. So your edit summery didn't really make sense to me. If the Interloper isn't a psyker, why is it listed as such on the page? And if IS is a psyker, why did you remove its (and ONLY its) psyker navbox and race when every other instance in the series has those? Branebriar1930 (talk) 00:01, 11 May 2021 (UTC)

I do agree with you that the psyker page needs work, but your justification for its removal as of right now is not sitting well with me. At this moment, psykers are beings (human or creature) that possess supernatural abilities - the interloper does, as indicated on the page. That's not remotely speculation. Thus the interloper does qualify under the current definition of a psyker. The psyker debate doesn't seem like it has been concluded, and you can't start changing things prematurely.

More importantly (at least to me), the interloper is now the only psyker (and I'm sticking to that term for it until something more concrete comes along) on the page that is not listed as such on its own page, and lacks a psyker navbox, despite being in it. Its inconsistent with all the other pyskers (who all have them) from all the other games. I get that you are sticking to what you know and specialise in when it comes to editing, but the format must be consistent across series (as far as possible). And right now its not.

If you are adamant about your position I can ask a sysop to add their input, otherwise I am going to restore the revert on the Interloper page, at least until this whole psyker discussion has been hashed out and a consensus reached. Hope you understand. Branebriar1930 (talk) 01:13, 11 May 2021 (UTC)


It had been a month there without any work on it, and as I remember it, I wasn't too convinced about its use. Jspoel Speech Jspoel.png 18:16, 19 May 2021 (UTC)


Earle says welcome!

Hello esteemed editor, fellow admin FDekker and I wish to extended a warm welcome to you, our newest staff member! I am excited to give you some brief information on the role. Here is Nukapedia's Patroller Guide that explains the new tools you have to make our wiki even better than ever.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask me or any of the other staff folks, we are here to support you. I am excited to see you rise in the ranks here, keep up the momentum and exceptional work. Ever Upwards! -kdarrow Pickman heart.png take her for a spin! 21:48, 31 May 2021 (UTC)

Infobox plan

I wasn't involved in the discussion leading to this split off. I don't see the use to create a new template for such a simple item, with just a few parameters who can easily be included to the item infobox template, just as for example the mods. Even the holotapes and notes use the item infobox, while the plans and recipes are just a subbranch of the notes. They are of minor complexity and can use the item box. Jspoel Speech Jspoel.png 19:31, 2 June 2021 (UTC)

Unused Files

It's a maintenance category, this one should be empty. If you wouldn't keep check on it it would be overcrowded with clutter. It's a tiny effort to make that file used, and it doesn't happen that often so. I've considered putting it on the talkpage or on a special page but this works too. Jspoel Speech Jspoel.png 15:41, 9 August 2021 (UTC)

Image space

It's images that are part of infoboxes. From what I've seen the consumable images and the perk images. I've just reverted the Turbo infobox image to its original state (so you can see what I mean), where it's too high. When I adjusted it to ratio 3 to 4, it reverts to a smaller height which looks better. I recently also adjusted Fallout The Roleplaying Game perk images the same way. See what you can do with it. Jspoel Speech Jspoel.png 18:08, 22 August 2021 (UTC)


I saw your message. I am home now and will send you a note on discord. Can't promise I will know the answer to your question, but I can promise to try to find it if I don't! -Pickman heart.png kdarrow take her for a spin! 05:19, 23 August 2021 (UTC)


Hey thanks for fixing that no-break line error in the infobox world object's edid! Jspoel Speech Jspoel.png 17:56, 27 August 2021 (UTC)

Has caps icon in value

The pages that use the {{infobox item}} template creates a [has caps icon in value] category if there's a caps template in it. So should we remove the {{caps}} icon? I thought a few months back we decided we should use it and we're not supposed to use it? Jspoel Speech Jspoel.png 15:58, 9 September 2021 (UTC)


I'm trying to open the Fallout 76.esm file with Ecksedit, but it doesn't allow me. "An error occurred while loading modules. Editing is disabled. Check the message log and correct the error" is the message. Any idea what the problem is? And can you give me a link to your latest update? Not sure I have the latest one. Jspoel Speech Jspoel.png 14:12, 10 September 2021 (UTC)

Duplicate caps icon

Something isn't right with plan pages. Your update to the infobox item template has added two caps icons in the infobox. Jspoel Speech Jspoel.png 15:00, 11 September 2021 (UTC)

Looks fixed. Another thing, Recipe: Cranberry relish has the category [uses footer], but there is no footer used. Shouldn't be there. And I had a question pending on your EcksEditor. Jspoel Speech Jspoel.png 15:07, 11 September 2021 (UTC)

Template Fixes categories

All these maintenance categories in the Category:Template Fixes are making the categorizing on pages very untidy, and as you can see now cause confusion. I was thinking maybe you can create a small guide in relevant categories if and how they should be handled for editors. That way you know what to do with them (or leave them for bot operating). Jspoel Speech Jspoel.png 18:15, 22 September 2021 (UTC)

Did you already update your EckEdit program? I can't access the data with my current version. (I now use an older version of your program which still works.) Jspoel Speech Jspoel.png 18:19, 22 September 2021 (UTC)

Eckedit error message.jpg

I'm still getting that same error message. See image. Jspoel Speech Jspoel.png 20:48, 22 September 2021 (UTC)
Since one of the latest Fo76 updates I can't open the esm file anymore, that's when I asked you for the new update. That doesn't work either so I've gone back to the 4.0.1. version which still works. Does the newest version work for you then, can you open the .esm file? About the maintenance, I assume you will be solving those categories then. I want to have those gone, all these maintenance categories look untidy. Jspoel Speech Jspoel.png 16:17, 2 October 2021 (UTC)

Maintenance categories

I'm solving some pages which have a {{caps}} template, but what is your purpose with the <has line break in value> and <has empty value type> categories? How are those categories to be handled? Jspoel Speech Jspoel.png 18:01, 28 September 2021 (UTC)
