Splitting junk item pages[edit source]

From what I can recall, it once was short subject of discussion around the time Fallout 76 came out, but not much came out of it and the pages were merged. However, I feel it's worth another round, I'm leaning towards splitting them myself, because the pages have lost the overview to some degree, with crowded infoboxes and the crafting system. But it's a large matter, so community input is needed. Feel free to make it a forum subject (ask people's opinion, so not a vote (yet)) Jspoel Speech Jspoel.png 20:06, June 4, 2020 (UTC)

I got tea, Dankalor and Dekker with me on the matter...or rather they are the only ones which have commented my post on the forum...not quite enough to start a vote, I presume. Findabair (talk) 22:15, June 6, 2020 (UTC)
Nice you're splitting those junk item pages, but can you update the links leading to it? If you see here Special:WhatLinksHere/Makeshift_battery, Lead (Fallout 76) still has a link to the Fallout 4 page. So update those please to the Fallout 76 version. Also, you can move the makeshift battery to Makeshift battery (Fallout 4)? Also for the other pages you have done up till now. Update this as much as possible before starting a new disambig page so we don't have to figure it out later on. Jspoel Speech Jspoel.png 10:28, June 13, 2020 (UTC)
Hey J, Since I am going table ty table (starting today with Acid), I planned to update the links in the tables as soon as I finished a table rather than edit the table after every single item. As for moving FO4 content to specific FO4 pages: Will do...was thinking about disambig pages but your method seems more valid. And thanks for the feedback. Findabair (talk) 10:49, June 13, 2020 (UTC)
In Fallout 4, stingwing barb isn't a junk item but a miscellaneous item. We would only move the junk item pages, not the misc item pages. So stingwing barb stays as it is. Jspoel Speech Jspoel.png 11:32, June 13, 2020 (UTC)

( Appearantly, it's a junk item in Fallout 76. Keep the split intact then I suppose. Jspoel Speech Jspoel.png 11:34, June 13, 2020 (UTC)

Forum & junk[edit source]

Hello! Thanks for setting up that forum and all the work you've been doing on the FO76 junk item articles. Both those things have been on my to-do list for coming close to a year now and I've never gotten around to it (having been constantly waylaid by other FO76 stuff), so I'm very happy to see both finally getting done. :D --L84tea Tea kettle.pngWould you like a cup of tea? 14:55, June 5, 2020 (UTC)

Aloha tea. You are welcome and it wasn't actually that much work. Decided to give FO76 another chance with the wastelanders update and started a new char. Then it was mainly hoarding every bit of junk I came across and checking the tables before scrapping the stuff. Honestly, what bugs me the most at the moment, is the fact, that the infos on the tables are accurate and up to date while the item pages they link to are often not. Hope that we can gather support for split FO4/76 junk pages, even though it would mean a lot of work, at least we would not have to cripple the infoboxes any longer. Findabair (talk) 22:35, June 6, 2020 (UTC)

Map76[edit source]

Hey, loving the work on the junk pages, but I've noticed a few of the locations you put could be a lot better. Unless its a guaranteed drop from enemies(like screws from wendigos), you probably shouldnt be putting it as a possible location to find it, same as with vendors. I understand how much of a struggle that could be, so I highly recommend using https://map76.com .

Its got an entire datamined list of world spawns for each individual junk item, so you can just search for the item, look around the map, and write down any spot that has them in a notable cluster.

Again, absolutely amazing work, but it would be awesome if the locations were slightly better. Thanks a bunch!--DankalorYT 14:32, June 13, 2020 (UTC)

There we go, Dank. ☺ I am currently in the process of splitting the FO76 pages from the FO4 ones, which is enough work as it is. Therefore I tend to just take over location entries from the original page as far as they concern FO76 locations. Since most items lack locations anyway, almost all newly created FO76 entries are marked as stubs. So feel free to go rad. And thanks for the link, will make use of it, once the process of splitting is done, which may take a while. Findabair (talk) 14:04, June 13, 2020 (UTC)

Junk Edits[edit source]


I've been adding values to the junk pages slowly. Having checked here is there anything that you'd prefer done re splitting pages? --Todoedits (talk) 23:37, June 25, 2020 (UTC)

Hello, since I will continue splitting this weekend, continuing today with bone, maybe you could start at the bottom of the junk tables like wood? Other than that, I have no special prefs, since there is enough junk to be split for everyone. :-D Just make sure to move (rename) the FO4 page after you have moved the FO76 content to the new page. And also update the links from other FO76 pages where needed. Findabair (talk) 05:24, June 26, 2020 (UTC)

Game order[edit source]

Thanks for your recent quality edits to junk items and other pages, splitting them is a lot of work and it's appreciated. However, I just wanted to let you know that the Article layout guideline says to organize items and other sections by order of canonicity, so Tactics, BoS, Shelter, and other games like that would go near the end regardless of when they were released. That aside though, keep up the good work. AllYourFavorites! (talk) 20:44, June 27, 2020 (UTC)

You are welcome. As for the layout - One never learns enough. Thanks for giving me the hint and also thanks for reordering the items already. Findabair (talk) 20:48, June 27, 2020 (UTC)

IRO: Splitting pages[edit source]


As there's going to be cross overs even though I'm working from wood backwards do you want those added into the other articles. I don't know whether you have a method that it would impact.--Todoedits (talk) 21:37, June 29, 2020 (UTC)

High Int Rock[edit source]


I just received the High Int Rock from Bethy Mangano, it has the following values:

  • Ultracite (2)
  • Gold (2)
  • Black Titanium (2)
  • Crystal (2)
  • Weight: 0.08
  • Value: 0

Also the second INT check for me came up as 12 so YMMV. I can also take a screenshot but it's on Xbone so it's pretty ugly. --Todoedits (talk) 21:35, June 29, 2020 (UTC)

Thanks for the info. Weight 0.08? You might be wearing any weight reducing stuff or a perk like Pack Rat? According to Dekker's MISC.csv weight should be 0.10 - have also updated the elusive junk items on my profile page. Stats are mostly there, will create the last missing pages on the tables tomorrow, if they shouldn't be there by then. But thanks for your effort. Findabair (talk) 21:42, June 29, 2020 (UTC)
I've just checked it was on a three star I was wearing apologies. What do you think about the kobold? I agree with you it might be cut content but I don't know what it would even relate too outside the item itself. It's difficult as with 76 it's just as likely to be added in at a later date. --Todoedits (talk) 22:58, June 29, 2020 (UTC)

Hooray![edit source]

Thank you for your support of my admin application! I appreciate it a lot! Also your user page picture is scary but I like it. Thanks again! -Kate (Kdarrow (talk) 09:47, July 20, 2020 (UTC))

Elusive Junk Items - Indus-tro coffee pot[edit source]


I've been slowly splitting out pages the one I've noticed on Steel (Fallout 76) is the aforementioned coffee pot. It's not currently on Map 76 like you have been using for the casings. As you're basically nearly at steel with the ones you've done do you think it should be removed?--Todoedits (talk) 01:28, July 23, 2020 (UTC)

Nice work.

Junk life[edit source]

Good job with all the junk splits. I know it is tedious! But you make it look easy :) -Kate (Kdarrow (talk) 02:03, July 26, 2020 (UTC))

I can totally hook you up with a mentor. If not me, we have a lot of smart folks that would love to help (most, if not all, of them better at things than me too). Sounds like you are in that category already haha! Don't worry, I will talk amongst the fam. Stay tuned :) -Kate (Kdarrow (talk) 02:39, July 26, 2020 (UTC))

With Kdarrow having taken an interest in you, I'd like to set her up as your mentor should that be alright with you. With that being said, if you have another mentor in mind, please do not hesitate to either send me a message, or to message the respective mentor personally.

I'll be looking forward to your response - happy editing! 寧靜 Fox.png 17:48, July 29, 2020 (UTC)

link[edit source]

problem with disambig pages is that they tend to be very open-ended. you are not actually providing the info that the searcher is looking for when they clicked the link, rather just providing a list of terms that closely relate to the name of that link. Hope that makes sense. Not too fussed if you want to change it back though.--Branebriar1930 (talk) 21:30, October 18, 2020 (UTC)

Confessor Martin[edit source]

Usually my rule is to not add actors that aren't credited unless there's a direct source saying they were in the game. FO76 provides a list of actors who performed "additional voices" on top of their credited roles, which helps with that game, but the FO4 DLCs don't have any credits as far as I can tell. People like Erika Harlacher and Gary LeRoi Gray announced their roles on social media, which is why they're included, but if we don't have any confirmation on Knight, I wouldn't include it. AllYourFavorites! (talk) 18:28, 6 January 2021 (UTC)

Reminderinos[edit source]

Solid work on the patroller beat. Not necessarily right away, but if you notice someone is uploading images without lic/cat, feel free to send them instructions or a gentle reminder. We all forget from time to time but its the person who uploaded's responsibility. Keep on keepin on! --kdarrow Pickman heart.png take her for a spin! 17:00, 11 January 2021 (UTC)

NOTY 2020[edit source]

Howdy! Congrats on being one the nominees for NOTY. Just like the discussions ping, I'm reaching out to let you know. If you want, you can say something to highlight why you feel you are the user of the year. Here are some examples other users have had in the past.

If and when you decide what you would like to say, copy it and send it to me. I'll give you a few easy options to reach me since not everyone is everywhere. You can leave a message on my talk page, you can @ me anywhere on the nuka discord, or you can @ me on the 2021 off-Topic thread. If you do not intend to write a message or if you want to decline the nomination, please let me know as well, so I'm not having to track someone down to squeeze an answer out of anyone. There's no deadline to reply, but I would appreciate it if it's sooner rather than later.

Thanks, The Dyre Wolf (talk) 04:25, 12 February 2021 (UTC)

Pipe with a space[edit source]

Don't use these pipe symbols with a space, putting them in one category, and at the start of a category. Just alphabetize them like I just did. Jspoel Speech Jspoel.png 18:31, 26 February 2021 (UTC)

Fort Independence/The Castle[edit source]

Since Fort Independence/The Castle is basically identical to what she was when completed in 1848 and the Divergence in Fallout didn't start picking up until the 1940s, her having identical features would be extremely likely. Creeping Death 1982 (talk) 01:22, 1 March 2021 (UTC)
