Surprised this needs to be said, but new messages go at the bottom of the page. Untitled and unsigned messages will be ignored.

Young Woman located south of the pulowski shelter in morgantown

Been looking for this one and noticed you made the edit that added in that location. Could you be a bit more specific because I have been searching high and low with no sign of the corpse Springtrap1128 (talk) 03:13, 8 January 2021 (UTC)

Found it and wouldn’t ya know I was looking in the complete wrong spot for it the whole time I did find an unmarked Free States camp though but thanks for the detailed info it really helped Springtrap1128 (talk) 05:34, 10 January 2021 (UTC)

Porto Vento~

I *think* they should match up - judging by the table, it was based on the OMODs exported from the game, so these should refer to existing ones. Tägäżïël 16:32, 12 January 2021 (UTC)


"Sniping from the tower falls under gameplay strategy and has never been allowed."

That part was restored from the edit that was there for years in regards to fighting out of tower (as oppose to running). My addition was pointing the unique usage of Gas Bombs due to the height of the tower (and also previously on the page for years).

Incidentally what exactly is 'gameplay strategy?' A walk-through involves strategy. A Fallout guide invariably involves strategy (in finishing the game). Mad Dog Fargo (talk) 17:20, 1 February 2021 (UTC)


Thank you for the assist on the weapon template tweak. I asked one of our technical experts to look into it so I don't make more of a mess. Also, happy early 30k! --kdarrow Pickman heart.png take her for a spin! 00:33, 3 February 2021 (UTC)

REPCONN test site

Hey—appreciate the copy edit. Just for future reference, is punctuation within quotation marks standard style site-wide here (e.g. if the punctuation isn't present in the quote but ends a sentence containing one) or were you just adding the period from the direct quote from the terminal message within the game? Want to make sure I get that right. Thanks. NewhonImproved (talk) 10:08, 19 February 2021 (UTC)

Tranquility Lane Gallery Pronouns

Hi, I don't really understand why you revered bmdit to (see Is refering to James/Dad (a male) and Braun (also a male) as he/his instead of them/their not the correct use of the English language? See James_(Fallout_3)#Gallery where the correct pronouns are used. Sairento (talk) 19:02, 20 February 2021 (UTC)

re: tranquility lane

The "they/their" pronouns would make more sense if we were talking about the pods themselves. In the context of people with known pronouns, it is less formal to use "they/their". TBH that gallery should be rewritten to circumvent the need for pronouns. Thanks for understanding.

Aspect distortions

I did some testing on aspect distortion functionality you mentioned and it appears that feature is no longer present. Check the BOWS table. I set all of these to images to 90x110px, and it seems all it does is set a maximum size for each axis, rather than stretching to fit.

Trashcan Carla discount

So do you think it's self-evident that her discount applies only to sales by her, not as a bonus to sales to her? That certainly was not self-evident to me, otherwise I wouldn't have investigated it and written it up. Spikezarkspike (talk) 14:18, 10 March 2021 (UTC)

Creatures/Robots article layout

I made a talk page for the Creature/Robots article layout guidelines, since you brought up that Appearances was a required section. Let's talk shop about getting that fixed. If there's anything else that you feel is off about layouts, now's the time. For instance, I'm for culling "Biology/Specs" and merging it into Background, while dedicating Characteristics as the section for gameplay info and tips.Scribe-Howard (waster_93) (talk) Axed 04:01, 11 March 2021 (UTC)

Oxford comma

Good sir! What an atrocious, inconscionable sentiment you express! Tägäżïël 16:24, 19 March 2021 (UTC)

Messagebox mayhem

Yes, I know what you mean. It took me a while to figure it out. You have to click on the box anywhere other than the text. It should have an x somewhere in a corner like the original one. Jspoel Speech Jspoel.png 17:59, 24 March 2021 (UTC)

It's a javascript from the developers wiki, Is there an x somewhere? Can't see it. But I see your point, I'll contact the creator to ask if he can put a clear x somewhere in the corner. Jspoel Speech Jspoel.png 14:53, 31 March 2021 (UTC)
I've asked one of the two developers, he's not that active, hope he sees it. Jspoel Speech Jspoel.png 15:04, 31 March 2021 (UTC)

re prostitution

I think that would be fair. The article read as if it was illegal before the war across the board, which in the real world isn't true and in the Fallout-world we don't know. It is legal and regulated the same as any other business in my state (eight counties in Nevada) and elsewhere in the world, esp Europe. I am happy to defer to you as to how to say it though :) -kate (kdarrow Pickman heart.png take her for a spin! 01:14, 16 April 2021 (UTC))

talk page user

I was just about to head here to thank you for being so quick on that and letting me know, I locked it for three months. It'll be perm next time due to all the warnings. Thanks again for helping keep a handle on that nonsense. -kate (kdarrow Pickman heart.png take her for a spin! 01:39, 18 April 2021 (UTC))
