You've been making a number of very helpful edits. Thanks for lending your eye for detail to The Vault! Cheers.--Gothemasticator 02:42, September 26, 2010 (UTC)


2010?--Gothemasticator 03:49, September 26, 2010 (UTC)

Yes! Hal10k 03:58, September 26, 2010 (UTC)
Woohoo!--Gothemasticator 04:09, September 26, 2010 (UTC)

Scribe confusion

You seem to have gotten your scribes mixed up on Yearling's page. Scribe Bigsley is a man added in Broken Steel. He has some comments regarding Yearling. --Kris User Hola.jpg 23:55, October 3, 2010 (UTC)

What exactly did I get wrong, for future reference?Hal10k 00:01, October 4, 2010 (UTC)
You indicated that Scribe Bigsley was Scribe Yearling:
"Scribe Bigsley is searching the library for Pre-War books, as any surviving book may contain some piece of useful information. She implies that she was assigned to the Arlington Library because she clashed with her superiors. "
--Kris User Hola.jpg 00:04, October 4, 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for catching that, I'll make sure to proofread my edits more thoroughlyHal10k 00:09, October 4, 2010 (UTC)

What are you doing, Dave?

:3. Nukey (talk) 23:45, October 4, 2010 (UTC)

Oh, you know, reading articles, fixing grammatical mistakes, stranding astronauts on the outskirts of Jupiter, the usual. Hal10k 23:51, October 4, 2010 (UTC)
I see, I see. Also, try to leave messages on my talk page when responding. It helps me notice I have a message. Nukey (talk) 23:53, October 4, 2010 (UTC)

Postapocalyptic interior decorator

I don't know if there's a specific rule about it, but IMO it's unnecessary. Just continue to use your best judgment. --Kris User Hola.jpg 10:34, October 17, 2010 (UTC)


Rollback rights granted. Ausir(talk) 05:56, October 24, 2010 (UTC)


Please see Forum:Maintenance!. There's a lot we can do to keep The Vault running smoothly. Thanks.--Gothemasticator 04:03, October 30, 2010 (UTC)

Notable bugs policy

Please weigh in on a proposed change in our written bugs policy.--Gothemasticator 01:11, November 9, 2010 (UTC)


My name is an in-universe feline beast name from a pet project of mine. IIRC, it was created from an arabic word for shadow. Personal_Sig_Image.gif Tagaziel (call!) 19:10, November 20, 2010 (UTC)

Bugs policy revised: new poll

Please review and vote on the revised proposed bug policy changes.--Gothemasticator 05:03, November 30, 2010 (UTC)

Marking for deletion

Please don't mark things for deletion just because there's an existing article with the correct name. Instead, redirect the page to the correct article with #REDIRECT[[Article name]]. Thanks. --Kris User Hola.jpg 00:48, December 8, 2010 (UTC)

It took me a few minutes to get that one; then I realized they had spelled it "teLsa instead of "tesLa", and thus deemed it worthy of deletion. At least they capitalized it right. It was a more recent one that I was more concerned about, the Legion explorer armor or w/e that was capitalized as ingame. --Kris User Hola.jpg 01:44, December 8, 2010 (UTC)

Legion Currency

Hmmm... my thoughts are that these fall right under the Item page overhaul project, as such I have marked them with the relevant tags for the project. Overall the page legion money should be moved to Legion currency as a page name, providing a overview with background. Both Aureus and Denarius should have separate pages with the transcluded background added etc. I have added them to the list to be sorted and I will most likely get this all done soon as it is a simply fix. ☣Avatar☣

There that should have sorted it now Legion currency. ☣Avatar☣ 01:41, December 15, 2010 (UTC)


wait a week or two then apply for adminship. Shadowrunner(stuff) 03:47, December 17, 2010 (UTC)


According to this The Vault:Article layout guideline/Item article we no longer need that section. Porter and GhostAvatar discussed it and I verified it. It is truly redundant. Thanks for your edits though.--Kingclyde 06:46, December 18, 2010 (UTC)

Admin request

I wouldn't worry about the timing. We've had close-together requests before. My two cents is that you might actually get a better response during the next 7 days because of school breaks. I say go for it. Cheers.--Gothemasticator 22:19, December 24, 2010 (UTC)


If one character actually appears in the game, and the other one was cut, there's no need to make the page for the name itself a disambiguation page. Best to keep the in-game character at Chauncey, and add this:

For the NCR Ranger cut from the game, see Chauncey (NCR Rangers).

Congratulations on becoming a Vault Admin! :) Wish me luck on becoming one! Gheart 22:17, January 5, 2011 (UTC)

Congratulaions from me, too! And a present at the top of your talk page. :)--Gothemasticator 00:15, January 6, 2011 (UTC)


i just joined this wiki and i cant post a picture for my avatar thru my psp. do i need a computer to do so? ~~vault-tec780~~


Good call there on the deathclaw, Hal. I stared at it for a while and thought it was a little typo being changed. In this case it helps your native language being English (it's my guess it is your native language). What do you think of semi-protecting this one? It's a page anons like adding text to that doesn't belong. Greets, Jspoelstra 02:26, January 26, 2011 (UTC)

Comment policy

Good call. I also fixed it a bit, so that it now reads "Fallout x rocks/sucks", lest some accuse me of bias :) Cheers. Personal_Sig_Image.gif Tagaziel (call!) 07:19, January 31, 2011 (UTC)


Hey Hal, remember what you promised when applying for admin?. Can you delete you few images which are marked for deletion?. I'm having some difficulties spotting which ones I've marked and which not. Would be appreciated. Greets, Jspoelstra 02:21, February 8, 2011 (UTC)

Ok, understood. I'll see them disappear then. Thanks for now. Jspoelstra 02:58, February 8, 2011 (UTC)

Blog link

Yeah, linking to your blog on your user page is fine. Basically, unless a link violates one of our policies, you can link to whatever on your own page. Cheers.--Gothemasticator 05:25, February 12, 2011 (UTC)


To be completely honest, the really long quest names are only a problem with Modoc and a little bit of San Fran. I don't think it's that big a problem to us, and what else would people be searching for if not the name of the quest? Nitty Tok. 15:17, February 18, 2011 (UTC)


I have an anonymous one for you to check user: out. Greets, Jspoelstra 23:51, February 20, 2011 (UTC) - Probably a first-timer having some fun. Unfortunately for him, we don't like it.

Dead Money

I haven't spent the money for the add on yet but I was going off of the Dead Money page and it describes nothing about raising the level cap. That's what I was working off of. Now I found it on the level page.--Kingclyde 17:28, February 28, 2011 (UTC)


Hey Hal, I noticed you blocking an anon who did a little writing on the quote: 'damn, you're looking tasty' from a New Vegas hooker. It could be true she's saying that, don't you think? Greets, Jspoelstra 18:51, March 6, 2011 (UTC)


On average, you do 18.6871 edits per day. Just thought you would like to know. Best regards, Kastera (talk) 02:04, March 24, 2011 (UTC)

I'm going to share a wonderful site with you. Wolfram Apha is a computational knowledge engine that can basically tell you everything about anything. Simply type in a date and you can get how days it's away from today's date in 5 different ways, any observed holidays, and important births or deaths, the time of sunrise, sunset, etc. Meaning you can calculate your average whenever you want to. Best regards, Kastera (talk) 02:36, March 24, 2011 (UTC)
Lol at the freight train, and that's a good site, finally answered the question How many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie pop? 3481

Been a while!

Good to see you around again!--Gothemasticator 02:30, June 20, 2011 (UTC)

Well, more influxes of new users with every DLC, the same lessons to be learned all over again. But, I can understand. If coming here gets you down, don't come here. :) Cheers.--Gothemasticator 04:04, June 20, 2011 (UTC)
Give up?--Gothemasticator 23:23, June 21, 2011 (UTC)
It's always sad when an admin leaves; we'll miss you! :( Kastera (talk) 03:42, June 22, 2011 (UTC)


Howdy Hal. It's been over a year since you last edited here. In that time, a policy was put in place regarding inactive users with extra rights. After a period of time (9 months), we're supposed to check and see if inactive users still intend to edit and use their rights. I just wanted to check in and see what you wanted to do. If you've moved on, that's obviously completely understandable. Just leave me a message with what you want to do. I appreciate your time,  The Gunny  380px-USMC-E7 svg.png 19:48, April 5, 2013 (UTC)

Well, it's been a week with no response. I'm gonna go ahead and remove your sysops rights. If you find your way back here, the link in the message above details the process to get them back, if you so desire. The Gunny  380px-USMC-E7 svg.png 19:30, April 12, 2013 (UTC)
