News Notability Edit

Hi J,

Just wanted to sound you out on something. As you know in the News Digests we've covered wasteland news as what is essentially our only exception to the Fallout exclusive focus, on the grounds its made by the same Devs and has a special relationship with Fallout.

According to Twiiter, the first Skyrim DLC is going to be announced imminently. I'm not planning on covering it, other than as a comment (in the comment part) as although it is Beth made, it doesn't have much of a link to Fallout. Do you think this is the right balance?

Ta Agent c 22:41, April 30, 2012 (UTC)

Hey J, minor change in plan... GameInformer have an exclusive this month with Zenimax online on their "Elder Scrolls online" project. I'm including the Skyrim DLC and this as a very brief mention to say they exist, that Fallout Online therefore isn't Zenimax-Online's secret project, and that we wont be covering either the DLC or TES online in any more detail. Dummy wording is in my sandbox if you want to take a look.


I noticed the main difference in the edits were the new definitions and an added fo:nv section. Do we need to list scrap metal? That is something we never did before. I can put up a vote for formal definitions if you want.--Kingclyde 00:09, May 1, 2012 (UTC)

Hey can you hop into chat for a bit?--Kingclyde 00:13, May 1, 2012 (UTC)

Mbox management template Edit

I'm fine, thanks :) Hope you're fine as well (despite the drama which seems to be plaguing this wiki recently). Sorry for the late reply, but I don't check my Wikia talk pages as often anymore - it's usually better to leave messages on my talk page at The Vault if you need a timely response.

Regarding the question at hand, your suspicions go in the right direction. There are two possibilities for you:

  • Quick solution: Replace "border" with "color" in {{Image needed}} and {{Mbox management}}.
  • Future-proof solution: Update {{Mbox}} along with the accompanying CSS, and then switch all page management templates to using {{Mbox management}} (you can probably simply import The Vault's versions).

-- Porter21 (talk) 10:11, May 1, 2012 (UTC)

Forgot to add the necessary changes to Mbox management for the quick solution. I've gone ahead and updated the template accordingly. -- Porter21 (talk) 07:00, May 2, 2012 (UTC)

Not sure if anyone noted...Edit

... but every time I'm not logged in, the RecentChanges for the Fallout Answers is there, despite only logged users can make edits. What do you think what should be done about it? MS: Destiny conquers all. 17:51, May 1, 2012 (UTC)

OK. Also, Sigma requested that he wanted to be banned for indefinite for testing purposes. I tried it two times and it didn't work. I typed it into the bar Indefinite and nothing happend. Can you tell us what should we do? MS: Destiny conquers all. 19:05, May 1, 2012 (UTC)

I see. Thanks for the note. MS: Destiny conquers all. 19:25, May 1, 2012 (UTC)

I think the real question is whether or not the "indefinite" ban option is still there. I've been having to manually enter in a date (100 years, for example) if I want to ban someone indefinitely. The option isn't showing up for me and MS. --Skire (talk) 19:27, May 1, 2012 (UTC)

Oh, I see. I think it used to be an option in the drop-down menu though. --Skire (talk) 19:43, May 1, 2012 (UTC)
It was never an option, you've always had to type it. My favourite ban I did was 5000000000 years (can't remember who) so that in theory, the sun would burn out before they could come back. Φύλαξ [~μίλησε μου~] 20:20, May 1, 2012 (UTC)

Image-VB Edit

You know, J, I've been thinking: Should the Van Buren "images needed" be categorised separately since the game was never actually released? And I think you tried to import some of the templates from the Vault but can't we just make our own? It'll by the same as {{tl|Image-RW}}. --Skire (talk) 21:46, May 1, 2012 (UTC)

Ok, I see.

Higgey Edit

Hey Jspoel, I just wanted to remind you that Higgey's time is up. I'm not sure if you unblocked him yet, so I just wanted to remind you. Thanks. ToCxHawK 23:31, May 1, 2012 (UTC)

Interesting Edit

Your NL proposition looks pretty sound to me. Although I don't think that fixed locations for items should necessarily be classified as notable. For instance, there is a fixed location in Old Olney for a .32 pistol in perfect condition. I personally don't find the weakest weapon in the game as notable. Dragon Skål! 14:48, May 2, 2012 (UTC)

Anon edits Edit

Hey Jspoel. Some anon made some edits on Mariposa, NCR, Vault 15, etc. and they seem to be speculative. For future reference, would you undo them? (I'm thinking yes, as the facts seem hard to verify conventionally) AFollower 20:31, May 3, 2012 (UTC)

Random article created (probably vandalism). Edit

J, I don't know much about Van Buren, but I don't believe Lasl created by this anon [[1]] really exists in the game. Most probably vandalism. Can you delete the page?

Yeah, but editing isn't everything. The thing is I just don't know if I'll have the motivation to go for it again. That was what made me go for it this time. -- Bacon-Man Talk to me goose! 04:06, May 5, 2012 (UTC)

Character quotations Edit

Hey J at the moment the FO1 and 2 quotes from characters who said their quote at the start of the articles don't have their name after the quote; but the FO3 and NV. I think it'd be best if we had some consistency with this. Should we have names or not have them? Kiwi 3992205 15:30, May 5, 2012 (UTC)

Patroller RequestEdit

Hi. I've been here as an Anon since 2009, and decided to make an account in December 2011. I've been continuously active since 27th March 2012. I have 321 article edits.

My major contributions have been quoting nearly all of the Fallout 3 Characters as part of the Fallout Wiki:Fallout 3 and New Vegas quotations project, adding quotes related to the article at the top of the page.

I already understand what edits should be reverted and have undone a lot, and think I would be good with the Patroller privileges. User Broccoli Broccoli. 14:33, May 6, 2012 (UTC)

Almighty Jspoel aka The Pope Edit

Hey, Jspoel, I've been thinking about something you said long ago. And I've come to realize you were right the entire time. It seems all this drama and stuff comes from having nothing new to edit which leads to boredom which leaves nothing to do, which causes bored people causing drama. So hopefully when Fallout 4 comes out all this drama will go away, and we can go back to strictly editing and away from the gearing of being more community minded. ToCxHawK 04:41, May 7, 2012 (UTC)

Yeah all of that is true in so many ways. I don't think everyone has found their place yet, but I know I have. I'm that one Moderator who just edits on Van Buren, and I like my place. ToCxHawK 03:24, May 8, 2012 (UTC)

Images Edit

I see you've successfully imported the {{tl|Image}} templates for each game from the Vault. And I also noticed you were updating the Van Buren templates, so I helped you out a little bit. There are many articles but like the person articles we can get 'em done! Hopefully I won't steal too many of your edits :) --Skire (talk) 19:41, May 7, 2012 (UTC)

Hmm... that's odd. Can't we just add into the template Category:Image needed (Van Buren)? Otherwise the template seems to be fine and it seems a little redundant to create a whole new one. And also there the {{Image|VB}} template is visually distinguishable from the generic one because it has "(VB)" on it, whereas the {{Image needed}} template is all aesthetically identical. --Skire (talk) 21:15, May 7, 2012 (UTC)
Do you want me to go around updating the templates replacing them with {{Image needed|<appropriate game>}}? They'll be easy edits unfortunately but I just want to help. --Skire (talk) 00:32, May 8, 2012 (UTC)
Sounds good. Could you check this edit and let me know if everything is done right, or if not, what needs to be fixed? Thanks. --Skire (talk) 01:14, May 8, 2012 (UTC)
How do I know which one finishes the quest? Always the last one? It seemed to me the quest had many different possible finishes, so I added them to those. --Skire (talk) 01:42, May 8, 2012 (UTC)

Re:Anon Edit

If this was his first edit here what do you think he'll do when he comes back in a week? People like this have nothing to offer here and are only damaging the wiki and engendering extra work to revert their vandalism. And judging by the message, I don't think he really wants to be back xD I've changed it to a week. --Skire (talk) 19:15, May 8, 2012 (UTC)

Portuguese Fallout Wiki. Edit

J, I`ve noticed that Ausir is - or was - the bureaucrat of the PT Fallout Wiki [[2]]. But since he`s not a wiki member anymore, there`s no one in charge there. Honestly, I`ve just learnt about the existence of the wiki itself, and I was delighted by it. I began editing some stuff there, but there are some things - templates, for instance - that I`d like to work on, in order to better and beautify the wiki (and learn at the same time). There is a LOT to be done there. However, I guess there`s no one to grant me the position, so I`d like to know if you are able to do so, since it seems that the PT FO wiki was under the management of this one.

Cheers,--Crimson Frankie -ArroyoTalk 22:01, May 9, 2012 (UTC)

Thanks, J! I`ve made the request. Awaiting now... ;-)
--Crimson Frankie -ArroyoTalk 22:43, May 9, 2012 (UTC)

Trail Carbine Edit

Well, if you don't count the DLC's, then it is still a pretty uncommon weapon. (And I don't think we should consider DLC's when talking about weapons also found in the vanilla game.) If you truly feel like it should stay, then I won't argue. It is certainly a good weapon to grab early in the game, although by the time you get your NCR rep up enough to get it, you should already have a better weapon by then. :P Your choice. Dragon Skål! 16:51, May 10, 2012 (UTC)

"Angry merchant"Edit

Most of the Fallout 2 pages have images (most are cut content). However, the main problem are the Fallout characters. It appears they were either cut (I asked Frankie to look for one of the merchants, but he didn't find him/her) or were removed by a patch (or added?). Same goes for the Followers of the Apocalypse scouts/members. MS: Destiny conquers all. 17:02, May 10, 2012 (UTC)

This is something I wanted to point out. I've exhausted all possibilities of finding these unknown characters often referred to as angry merchants or followers scouts on some pages at the wiki. They're simply nowhere to be found. :-(
Cheers, --Crimson Frankie -ArroyoTalk 07:05, May 11, 2012 (UTC)
Although I've just uploaded better images for some Fallout 1 characters, and added a good image for the Crypts and Fools pages (from the Fallout 1 demo version), which were lacking images. But "angry merchants" and "followers of the Apocalypse scouts" must be hiding somewhere really obscure... hehehe
Cheers, --Crimson Frankie -ArroyoTalk 07:15, May 11, 2012 (UTC)

An Idea Edit

I thought about it some more and I think we should actually leave fixed locations out. Just for right now. I have an idea: We should create an official list of which weapons/armour should be considered notable if they have a fixed location. Then we can create a symbol template to put next to these sorts of NL, so experienced users don't remove them thinking that they're not notable under our general policies. Maybe write out this list and put it up as a vote to see what the community thinks of it. Dragon Skål! 17:22, May 10, 2012 (UTC)

Only reason why we should remove them for right now is because technically our policies don't dictate fixed locations for loot as notable. So we'd be kind of making up a rule there. Dragon Skål! 17:23, May 10, 2012 (UTC)
If you'd like, I can write out a rough list, that we can go over later. I'll be sitting down and working on the Moose anyways, so I should have the time to do that as well. Dragon Skål! 17:27, May 10, 2012 (UTC)
GECK isn't really needed, I don't think, when making the list. (Although it will be needed when find locations afterwords.) It'll be pretty simple to deduce which items are highly sought after, and whether or not they're hard to find, which would warrant mentioning them in the first place. (Such as the NCR Combat Armour. I don't think this is notable, as you can find it at all major NCR bases, and you can loot them off of NCR hit squads constantly if you are vilified by the NCR. But I would consider the Plasma Caster as being notable enough to list. Or even the tri-beam laser rifle) Dragon Skål! 17:41, May 10, 2012 (UTC)
I actually have no idea how good they are in New Vegas. I mostly just remember how over-powered they were in Fallout 3 when used against you, and how easily they broke. I have no doubt that they're very powerful in New Vegas as well, especially since Gun Runners allowed you to upgrade them further. Dragon Skål! 17:53, May 10, 2012 (UTC)

Thank's man! Edit

You must be one of the good admins! I'll try not to tell a racist-ish joke next time. I really ought to get back to my Fallout 3, though, so I might still not get to use it for a while. But it is a comfort to know it has been lifted and I can use it if I find it necessary.

Seriously.... Edit

You are now blocking people for what they do off site, even more you then try to bully them here until they do what you want them to do. That to me is just pathetic, childish and immature. I am seriously disappointed in you and your actions at this point, you are essentially governing peoples thoughts and dictating what they can and cant do in there own personal life (regardless of it being either offline or online). What is next, you going to start banning people for what they say in the street or to there friends. Really now, you have no right to tell people what they can and cant do outside this wiki, that is well outside your powers and authority. And I tell you what, while those blocks stand and you continue to bully people, don't be expecting any kind of good faith, support or technical advice from The Vault in future. Because by your actions, this has now turned from a good will relationship to a sour one. If you want to remove my rights from me for speaking out, go ahead cus that will just prove how childish and petty you really are. User avatar tagUser Avatar talk 20:05, May 10, 2012 (UTC)

As I wrote to Garoux, I would like to believe that your action is not indicative of a change in your policy towards The Vault and its supporters, namely a campaign of rights removal, banning and persecution, though given how hard you cracked down on someone who's largely irrelevant and how Wikia treated Ausir, it's hard to believe. I would like for you to discuss the matter with Garous and Kingclyde. Prefferably publicly and transparently, as a show of good will.

You were just an admin, and in case you'd forgotten, most of what is here is thanks to Ausir and Porter.

Fixed Locations Edit

Before starting my list, this is what I am taking into consideration:

  • Either is not sold by merchants, or shows up rarely in a merchant's goods.
  • Usefulness and re-sale value.
  • Either drops rarely or not at all from all types of enemies.
  • This list does not include DLC content, when considering how common vanilla weapons/armour are in them.
  • After these points have been taken into consideration, all of the working factors are added together to determine whether the item in question in notable for fixed locations.
  • (Only FO3/FO:NV) - Means that the game specified is the only one where the weapon is notable for fixed locations. For instance, miniguns are common in Fallout 3, but extremely rare in Fallout: New Vegas.
  • (FO3/FO:NV only weapon/armour) - Means that the weapon/armour is either unique to the game noted in parenthesis, or that the only notable fixed locations are in the game mentioned.

Now, here is the list I compiled of notable weapons and apparel when considering fixes locations and the points I listed above: (This list includes FO3/FO:NV)


  • Silenced 10mm pistol
  • Infiltrator (FO3 only weapon)
  • Sniper Rifle (Only FO:NV)
  • Sawed-off Shotgun (Only FO:NV)
  • Minigun (Only FO:NV)
  • Gatling Laser (Only FO:NV)
  • Tesla Cannon
  • Gauss Rifle
  • Flamer (Only FO:NV)
  • Shiskebab (Only FO:NV)
  • Railway Rifle (FO3 only item)
  • Deathclaw Gauntlet (Only FO3)
  • Fat Man
  • Missile Launcher (Only FO:NV)
  • Plasma Rifle (Only FO:NV)
  • Tri-Beam Laser Rifle (Only FO:NV)
  • Bottlecap Mine
  • Nuka Grenade (FO3 only weapon)
  • Steel Saw (FO3 only weapon)
  • Rolling Pin
  • 12.7 Pistol (FO:NV only weapon)
  • Assault Carbine (FO:NV only weapon)
  • Light Machine Gun (FO:NV only weapon)
  • Marksman Carbine (FO:NV only weapon)
  • Plasma Caster (FO:NV only weapon)
  • Recharger Rifle (FO:NV only weapon)
  • Multiplas Rifle (FO:NV only weapon)
  • Grenade Machinegun (FO:NV only weapon)
  • Powder Charge (FO:NV only weapon)
  • Time Bomb (FO:NV only weapon)
  • Chainsaw (FO:NV only weapon)
  • Hatchet (FO:NV only weapon)
  • Throwing Knives (FO:NV only weapon)
  • Cattle Prod (FO:NV only weapon)
  • Throwing Hatchet (FO:NV only weapon)


  • I noticed you already compiled a list for this category. Let me know if you would like me to provide a list as well.


  • I have exhausted both lists quite thoroughly, and this is what I believe to be the only candidates for weapons/armour worthy of being noted when considering fixed locations. Everything else is either commonly dropped by enemies, is commonly found lying around in the wastes, or is commonly sold by traveling and permanent merchants.
  • Let me know if you believe anything should be added or removed. Dragon Skål! 07:33, May 12, 2012 (UTC)
I was thinking this should not be a factor as it is subjective to each individual player style->Usefulness. Resale value is good. Just my two-cents. Don't hurt me.--Kingclyde 17:28, May 12, 2012 (UTC)
I categorized usefulness by two extremes, and then ran them under the other points I was considering. So for instance, even though a silenced .22 pistol is found very rarely outside of shops, I would still never consider it as notable, even if it might be useful for stealth characters. But let's look at, say, a plasma caster which is no doubt highly sought after, even by players not fond with energy weapons. Even if a player wouldn't wish to actually use the plasma caster in combat, it still has usefulness in re-sale value or even as a decorative piece in your home. Dragon Skål! 17:35, May 12, 2012 (UTC)
I agree with KC, price should be taken into account, not usefulness. Also, rarity, even if the item lacks usefulness. Limmiegirl Lildeneb Talk! ♪ 22:15, May 12, 2012 (UTC)
Then you're agreeing with me as well. :') I never said usefulness was a singular point I was looking for. If I had taken usefulness alone as reason enough to list a weapon as notable for fixed locations, then my list would have been greatly expanded. Usefulness is only a small factor I that is looked at compared to the other points I mentioned above. Hence, my example of why I didn't add a .22 pistol. Or an AMR. As for price and rarity, if you read back again, you'll see I already listed those as contributing factors. Dragon Skål! 22:20, May 12, 2012 (UTC)

Lucky Horseshoes again Edit

I kinda forgot about this; I've done now further research and played tons of Lucky Horseshoes matches. I'm certain that the situation when being equally close (example 17-25), the one to get there first has the advantage. I got it all four ways: I got lower first, I got higher first, Festus got lower first, Festus got higher first. In all scenarios the first who got there had the advantage. In given exmple: if you get 17 first, and opponent then gets 25, you've already won; if you get 25 first, and opponent then 17, the opponent must draw more. You told me to edit it, not sure how to type it but I do my best. I don't mind if you edit it afterwards, if you see it better written some otherway. --John Acey 17:36, May 12, 2012 (UTC)

Weapon infobox perks not collapsed Edit

Hey, Js. The infobox weapon gamebryo is not correctly collapsing the "perks" section on page load. It is loading it uncollapsed. I've talked to Ghost about this and he believes it's the javascript, as the infobox seems correct. If you don't have a problem with it, I'd like to shoot Grunny a message and ask him to look into it.

Slider2K's edits Edit

Js, I was wondering if you could maybe talk to User:Slider2k. I had helped him with an edit he desired on a page, but didn't want to do himself. He feels that all his edits get reverted with no explanation. I encouraged him to try to edit again, and that I'd try to keep up with what he's doing. He added a screenshot of what the living anatomy perk shows on the hud to that page, but you removed it. I don't want him to get discouraged again, so maybe you could let him know why you reverted it and help him understand what might be acceptable. If you have the time, I would really appreciate it. Thanks The Gunny 380px-USMC-E7 svg 02:13, May 13, 2012 (UTC)

Now that you backpedaled, I'm rather intrigued by your work practices. You saw a screenshot with UI on and deleted it outright without paying attention to use context? The worse of all you didn't give a reason for deletion. Sadly I see this behavior from "big count editors" way too often here... and that tires me. Slider2k 19:12, May 13, 2012 (UTC)

Hey Js, I'm wondering why are pictures of armors like the Enclave PA categorized as FNV armor. I assume it's because they're still in the game files, despite not being normally available? Limmiegirl Lildeneb Talk! ♪ 15:24, May 13, 2012 (UTC)

NCR-Great Khan War debate result Edit

Well me and Garoux recently had a debate on when the NCR-Great Khan War started and what it included and the end result we got was to talk to one of the two bureaucrats, so I came to you. Basically, we hoped that initially you would be able to come to a conclusion, but the one we came to was making a page called War on Raiders, which would be akin to the War on Terror page on Wikipedia. Basically this page would have the NCR-Great Khan War merged in to it, but with additional information on the NCR's fights against the Vipers, Jackals and Fiends. So we come to you asking if you approve, if I should make this page and if you can come with any alternative. --Mr. Youtube 01:40, May 14, 2012 (UTC)

Cyborgs/Race Edit

Hi J,
I was wondering if you could check the most recent edit to Cross; was just wondering if Cyborg counts as a "Race" for infobox purposes as I think I remember something about Races coming from the GECK... Thanks. Agent c 16:37, May 14, 2012 (UTC)

I need help D: Edit

You wouldn't happen to know how to convert an image copied over into a rich text document in a way where I can upload it to a site such as Tinypic? Everything I've tried so far just corrupts the file. Dragon Skål! 16:44, May 14, 2012 (UTC)

I'm running a social experiment and I had some chat logs I wish to upload. I took some screen prints and I copied them over in a rich text document. Now I'm just looking for a way to upload them to Tinypic so I can link to the screenprints I took. Dragon Skål! 17:12, May 14, 2012 (UTC)

Laser rifle sound mix-up Edit

You seem to know about those in-game sounds so I thought I shall let you know. The laser rifle from FNV article has the wrong firing sound, it plays the F3 one instead. I have no idea how these work so I can't be of much use with audio. --The Leaping Eagle 16:46, May 14, 2012 (UTC)

DB Edit

Hey Jspoel! Just a reminder: DragonBorn's chat mod request has concluded. The votes are more... conflicting, so I think a BC should properly make the final call. --Skire (talk) 20:09, May 14, 2012 (UTC)

H:NL Edit

Just letting you know that I reverted your edits to the help page. Many of the items you listed are not unique or rare in any way, and either way, these changes need to be put up for the community to vote on. What counts as notable isn't really up to us. Here are the ones that I have a problem with:

  • Shock baton
  • Advanced radiation suit (Fallout 3)
  • Pulse mine (Fallout 3)
  • Pulse grenade (Fallout 3)
  • Advanced radiation suit (Fallout: New Vegas)
  • Combat armor, reinforced
  • Legion Praetorian armor
  • Legion Vexillarius armor
  • Mad scientist scrubs
  • NCR Ranger combat armor
  • NCR salvaged power armor
  • Recon armor (Fallout: New Vegas)
  • Scientist scrubs
  • T-45d power armor (Fallout: New Vegas)
  • Valence radii-accentuator
  • Vault 19 jumpsuit
  • Proton axe
  • Scientist glove
  • Lever-action shotgun
  • Arc welder (Fallout: New Vegas)
  • Bumper sword
  • Satchel charge
  • Saturnite fist
  • Cowboy repeater
    • Some of these I'm very surprised at. Such as the pulse grenade or the cowboy repeater, which are extremely common, whether you're considering merchants, loot, or drops. Others are an infinite resource and quite easy to obtain. I'm looking at items such as the saturnite fist or the radiation suit. Dragon Skål! 21:31, May 14, 2012 (UTC)
I'm just trying to be careful. We have a lot of users these days talking about how we're just making up rules as we go, and I want to prove them wrong. At the moment, fixed locations and valuable items aren't in our policies as factors that contribute into what we consider notable loot or now. As for the list you came up with, I am mostly in agreement with what you have added. But I believe we should have limits on what we should consider as notable for fixed locations. For instance, there are no nail boards found just lying around in New Vegas, I believe. I would never consider it notable to list though if there turned out to be 1 or 2 places where you might find one. The 9-iron is another good example. I believe there are only 3 fixed locations for this weapon. But it's a crappy weapon still, and it doesn't belong in the notable loot section. I think we need to ask these questions first:
  • How rare is the item sold by merchants?
  • What tier item is it?
  • Is there only a limited amount of this item?
  • Is it unique?

Once we ask ourselves these questions, I believe we can properly judge which items are of note. Dragon Skål! 23:52, May 14, 2012 (UTC)

NCR-Raiders War Edit

I have created the NCR-Raiders War page, but do we merge the NCR-Great Khans page or do we have a link connecting both pages? --Mr. Youtube 22:42, May 14, 2012 (UTC)

Patroller request Edit

Hey J. You know, I was thinking: We have mandatory admin endorsements for chat mod applicants, what if we implement an admin endorsement for patrollers? I think it would work much better since a few admins keep an eye on editors and those with aptitude and potential, while it might escape a bureaucrat's eyes. This way we ensure our patrollers are of higher quality (some people now haven't worked enough for them). Let me know what you think (: --Skire (talk) 00:59, May 15, 2012 (UTC)

On a related note, have we considered giving the interwiki guys patroller rights so their edits will show up patrolled? The Gunny 380px-USMC-E7 svg 01:13, May 15, 2012 (UTC)
Patrollers kinda have an admin endorsement by definition, as the B/c has to decide to approve or not approve. Agent c 01:22, May 15, 2012 (UTC)

Ammo tables Edit

Do me a favor, Js, and point me to the page you want that table on. I'm a little unclear exactly where you want it. The Gunny 380px-USMC-E7 svg 19:59, May 15, 2012 (UTC)

Ok. Thought that's what you wanted, just wanted to make sure. I also made a [[User:The Gunny/sandbox#For Ammunition overview page|checkmark style table]] for the ammo overview page to show which games each ammo is in. Do you think that's better than the 3 column list that's already there? The Gunny 380px-USMC-E7 svg 20:19, May 15, 2012 (UTC)
Due to table sorting limitations, I had to change the headers a bit, but how's that look? The Gunny 380px-USMC-E7 svg 20:44, May 15, 2012 (UTC)


When were you going to tell me you're eternal? - Hugs MadeMan2 "Say 'ello to my little friend!"

It's a bit of an in-joke on the fact that you've got Neo from the Matrix as an avatar, aptly played by Keanu. I actually can't watch him in movies without think about you, so strongly tied is the name "Jspoelstra" to him. Honestly I find it hilarious. Hugs MadeMan2 "Say 'ello to my little friend!"

My curiosity ; ( Edit

Heyya J! I'm Ken and I'm new in fallout. (about a year maybe) I'm playing Fallout New Vegas only so I don't know much about other Fallouts. But what attracted my attention is that the fact that the playing year is 2281! Having a great war 100 years or so ago and live in vaults. Nuke falling above and irradiate everything on ground level. And sunset sassparilla is still untouched... but that's besides the point.

So my question is this: Why is it that the year is so advanced and having all of those crazy power weapons and even had those cyberdogs, they're still in on those late 1990s and below kind of style. The musics (but sometime I think it's quite fun to listen) and the terminals and even they're aiming posture, is from the 70s. There's no laptops no telephones (but I think they don't need one in a vault eh...) and no 21st century musics and stuff... Despite having past the 21st century and even the 22nd century(I didn't mentioned the 23rd because they're stuck in those vaults) but they're still use the 20th century style. No offense though...

If you would take time to answer my question I'd be much appreciate it, and the reason why I ask you this is because you are a player that had quite the experience... Much Obliged!!! -- 09:14, May 17, 2012 (UTC)

Dialgoue Subtitles Edit

Hi J, I was wondering since we have the Dialgoue files for F1/2 is it possible to pull the "Subtitles" for the dialogue in 3/NV. Although I have the Geck, I'm yet to really experiment with using it, if you know what I need to do I'm happy to pull them myself. Agent c 00:14, May 18, 2012 (UTC)

Quote clippingEdit

J, many of the character pages I've come across today have the quote clipping into the character box....I've moved the quotes to say maybe 3 above the user box and it seems to be fine....wanted your permission to move others should I find them. Doctor 0 Dr. 0 17:18, May 18, 2012 (UTC)

Yes sir. I've been trying to help Gunny all day...I'm working on both NV and 3 consumables to make sure infoboxes match with the charts...To be honest, I'm not getting them done as fast I should be...but that's a result of having to play Mr. Mom on a day to day I'm slowly trying to work on them as I can. Thank you, it's always nice to hear someone appreciating hard work. Doctor 0Dr. 00Human 21:48, May 20, 2012 (UTC)

I wish I had the GECK but unfortunately I don't. and also I'm aware that some of the info on the table may still be incorrect, I was the one that changed them to their current status, under the instruction of Gunny, I was told to cross reference with The Vault's same tables, later I heard from Ghost that it was fine to keep doing so but that he was working on making sure they were correct at The Vault, I told him that I would check back every so often over there to see if anything in those tables had changed compared to Nukapedia, so far I haven't seen any changes he's made. Thank you J(if I can call you that). It really is nice to see a bureaucrat who cares and thanks his fellow Nukapedians. :D Doctor 0Dr. 00Human 22:29, May 20, 2012 (UTC)

Can you go into the chat? I want to PM you about something. TrailerParkApe TPA 22:52, May 20, 2012 (UTC)

Patroller request Edit

Hi Jspoelstra, I would like to apply for patroller rights. I have been a user here for four months (since January 21st), I have been active for the majority of those months, and I have made a total of 662 article edits. I have also been visiting and making minor edits as an anon for a few years before that. I have read the policies and guidelines multiple times and understand the different reasons for reverts, having made many reverts myself. Thanks for your consideration, Paladin117>>iff bored; 00:09, May 22, 2012 (UTC)

Hey J. I'd like to personally recommend the above applicant for this position. From where I see it, he's done many good edits. His reversions are always accompanied by an explanation as to why the edit was reverted, which is a quality that even some admins (including me) lack to an extent. Overall he is very competent and I think worthy of the patroller status. --Skire (talk) 00:12, May 22, 2012 (UTC)

Thank you. I won't let you down. Paladin117>>iff bored; 00:27, May 22, 2012 (UTC)

Table Edit

I'll play around with the proportions a bit. Either way, when there's more than 3 effects to list, it's gonna push to a second line. The Gunny 380px-USMC-E7 svg 00:16, May 22, 2012 (UTC)

Quote problem Edit

Hi. I saw your message to Sannse about the issue with the quotes overlapping the infoboxes. Could you point me towards an example page that has the issue? Also, do you know when the problem started? -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 04:36, May 22, 2012 (UTC)

Hi. The search suggestions were deliberately removed by our operational team because our servers kept overloading and causing the system to fall into backup mode. Given a choice between search suggest and editing we all sort of felt editing was more important!
I'm glad somebody has found a workaround for the overlap! -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 18:14, May 22, 2012 (UTC)

Apology Edit

Hello, J, I'd like to apologize for my actions that lead to me losing my moderator rights. I was in a sour mood that day and vented it, immaturely, by banning Emiko without proper justification. I'm sorry, and I won't be arguing with your decision to strip me of my rights. I'd been a poor moderator for a while leading up to the incident. I planned to apologize sooner, but I've been busy with exams. I'm also trying to start editing regularly again. Good day, J. -- Almighty Higgey (talk page) 12:20, May 22, 2012 (UTC)

Re:Solo Edit

Yeah that left a note in the article itself! The name "Emerald" seemed unlikely to be a male name, along with the fact that it has gone unchanged for such a long time. I have reverted my initial reversion so it should read as "he" now. --Skire (talk) 21:06, May 22, 2012 (UTC)

Sorry to get into the discussion, but from I remember, he has a male sound, while it is scripted as a female (like Arch Dornan/Base Commander from Fallout 2). MS: Destiny conquers all. 21:17, May 22, 2012 (UTC)

Vandals maybe inbound Edit

Hey, J. We got activities of vandals rushing on Wikia. They are a group from a troll website. CoD, Harry Potter Wiki, and MLP Wiki are gotten hit by the mass vandal attacks. I'll be here to revert vandalism if they are attacking, just to let you know. Vault boy joker by forarkan-d33uxps (1) "Game's rigged from the start."

Notable loot Edit

Hi J. Has there been any progress on the notable loot policy? My project is still on hold, and I want to get it going again. Limmie is out so she won't be in on it until later. I just hope the policy can be finalised so the project doesn't end up with the rest of the dead projects. Thanks :) --Skire (talk) 18:56, May 25, 2012 (UTC)

I've been putting a lot more thought into this. I'll send an updated list to you tonight. Dragon Skål!
OK, sounds good. Hopefully he won't trim the list down too much! --Skire (talk) 19:12, May 25, 2012 (UTC)
Yes, it should be longer. I'll go ahead and add my thoughts in on apparel as well. We can discuss it tomorrow maybe to see if any additional items need to be added in, and then we'll put it up for a general consensus. (We should probably make this a mod/sysop vote.) Hopefully this process will be as painless as possible once we get the gears going. Dragon Skål! 19:18, May 25, 2012 (UTC)

New stub template Edit

Hi again J. I noticed (along with {{Image needed}}) we were switching the stub templates to {{Stub|<Game>}}. But does it still add it to the same category as before? For example: Would {{Stub-VB}} add the article to the same category as {{Stub|VB}}? I'm pretty sure it does. But then I saw on a recent edit that the {{Stub|VB}} simply added the article to Category:Stub (reads that on the bottom of the page too), so I'm a bit confused. --Skire (talk) 21:01, May 25, 2012 (UTC)

I see you've got those templates working now! That's great. I'm still updating the {{Image needed}} ones to correspond with their own games. You can expect that done soon. --Skire (talk) 14:56, May 26, 2012 (UTC)
No, you're right, that should finish the job faster. He's in chat right now and I can ask him. --Skire (talk) 15:25, May 26, 2012 (UTC)

A present, just for you!

Dragon Skål! 22:57, May 26, 2012 (UTC)

After creating a better tally system, it allowed me to remove certain items and to add in others in their place. Also, to be fair, I added an armour division this time around. ;) That easily doubled the size of my list. Dragon Skål! 23:08, May 26, 2012 (UTC)
  • Pulse Grenade/Mine - Not notable. Both are extremely common in both F:3 and F:NV. Certainly no need to list fixed locations when you can find them both everywhere.
  • Silenced 10mm Pistol - I listed this because it passes my tally system. It is not dropped by enemies, and there is only a finite amount, not being sold by merchants. (Correct me if I am wrong here. I don't re-call ever seeing one being sold though.)
  • Backwater Rifle - This is a unique weapon.
  • Shock Baton - This is an extremely common weapon, and can be found in an infinite amount.
  • Gauss Rifle (F:3) - This is a unique weapon.
  • Assault Carbine - Is only a tier 2 weapon, and can be found very easily. Enemies carry this weapon, and this weapon can also be found regularly as random loot and being sold by merchants.
  • Plasma Rifle (F:NV) - This is only a tier 1 weapon and is found extremely common as random loot and as enemy drops. Is also sold very cheap by most merchants.
  • .45 Pistol - Only a tier 2 weapon and is found very commonly with infinite sources.
  • Arc Welder - Only a tier 2 weapon, is found commonly, and has an infinite source from LR stores.
  • Breathing Mask - Very common item and is sold infinitely from LR stores.
  • Proton Axe - Common weapon dropped infinitely from lobotomites.
  • Satchel Charges - Common and you can get them for free constantly.
  • Saturnite Fist - Very common weapon dropped infinitely from lobotomites.
  • Advanced Radiation Suit. Very common suit sold cheaply by nearly all merchants.
  • T-51b Power Armour (F:3) - This armour is unique.
  • Chinese Stealth Armour (F:3) - This armour is unique.
  • All Purpose Science Suit - This armour is unique.
  • Combat Armour, Reinforced - Found commonly at mid-level in random loot containers, and is sold by multiple merchants.
  • Any Legion Armour - Commonly found. Especially from assassin squads. Can be found in an infinite amount.
  • Lucky Shades - This headwear is unique.
  • Naughty Nightware - This cloth is unique.
  • Any NCR Armour - Is very commonly found, especially with assassin squads after you.
  • Recon Armour - Sold by multiple merchants, and is commonly found in random loot containers at mid-level.
  • T-45d Power Armour - Extremely common, and is sold by multiple merchants.

Your Expert Opinion.. Edit

Hey J, and sorry to bother you, but I need your expert honest opinion. I'm not sure if you say Agent C's news digest this week but I'm looking to make an Icon addition project as I believe that icons are something with a standardization being needed. Well I was talking too two admins yesterday and they informed me that A. they don't think I should go ahead with this project, and B. when the icons were first introduced to this wiki they were never meant for main space articles and just for info boxes. Oh and apparently they slow down the entire server. Just wondering if you think I should do as they say and throw the idea to the wind, or continue on with it. --The Old World Relics 15:52, May 27, 2012 (UTC)

Speaking of which, maybe we can jump into chat later, J? That way we can officially get the list out of the way so we can hurry up and put it up for a vote. :) I want to get this out of the way so we can start properly working on pages. Dragon Skål! 19:22, May 28, 2012 (UTC)
Since you're active now, would you like to go ahead and jump into chat? I promise I'll try and make it as short as possible, and then you can hear Sigma's ideas and see if anything further needs to be added in. :) As for your fears... I honestly think this vote is just going to fly on through, especially if you take my idea of making this an Admin/Mod vote only. I know this is a pain, but I just want to make sure we go through the proper channels first. We have too many users accusing us as abusing out powers and pushing through new policies because we feel like it. I just don't want to give them any more ammunition towards their claims. Dragon Skål! 19:30, May 28, 2012 (UTC)
Absolutely. I'm pretty much free all day today, so shoot me a message when you're ready. Oh... don't mind those. I went through every single weapon/armour page and I listed each item that passed my tally system. Just ignore any of the items I listed if they don't have any fixed locations. :P Dragon Skål! 19:33, May 28, 2012 (UTC)

Re:Templates Edit

They're mostly created for personal use, as well as others who feel they are more easy to remember. They are for me, at least. I can understand your concerns, but I don't think I've made that many :) --Skire (talk) 21:32, May 28, 2012 (UTC)

It's finished! I think it looks pretty damn good, if I may say so myself. :') Dragon Skål! 10:06, May 31, 2012 (UTC)
Fair enough. I still say we need to keep the vote separate though. Dragon Skål! 11:20, May 31, 2012 (UTC)
Hmm. We'll have to see. Yeah, I'm looking forward to what Clyde think of this. Haha! I think it's too late for sleep. I've been up all night writing out the next edition of Moose and working on 3 other forums I plan on putting up soon. Busy busy. Dragon Skål! 11:28, May 31, 2012 (UTC)
-sigh- Looks like you might have been right. Not one person has constructively contributed to the debate, and no one seems to be able to wrap their heads around the basic concept that this will only be for fixed locations for higher level/tier items. That and everyone acts like it's some sort of taboo now to propose a change to the policies/guidelines ever since that Yessie/Cartman debacle. Oh well. We'll see how it goes, and what Clyde thinks. Dragon Skål! 17:35, May 31, 2012 (UTC)
Sure, let me know what you come up with. Dragon Skål! 17:44, May 31, 2012 (UTC)

Fortune PaybackEdit

Thank you for notifying me of this turn of eventsFortune Payback 15:45, May 31, 2012 (UTC) Fortune Payback


I'll get up there in time. I got to 20,000 (which continues to rise) at The Vault and I'm perfectly content with that. I heard you abandoned getting the largest edit count after finding someone with 1,000,000+ edits at the lyrics wiki. --Kastera (talk) 00:16, June 1, 2012 (UTC)

Notice Edit

Warning blue Hello Jspoelstra,  I've changed the color back to the light green table body color and reset the .css styling. I would really like to use more "Fallouty" images, so if you know of any vault-boy images that would fit the "warning", "caution", "notice" theme, I'd love to hear it. I would consider adding custom styling for the background and text color, and possibly the image, if there was enough serious demand for it. Haven't really seen anyone but me & Sig use it yet. You should completely familiarize yourself with Nukapedia's policies and guidelines if you have not yet done so.

Nukapedia is service-marked? Edit

Hey Js, I just stumbled upon this site, and it says there that the Nukapedia name is service marked. That means there might be legal issues for us to use the name, it might be a good idea to contact Wikia for them to look into it. Limmiegirl Lildeneb Talk! ♪ 21:32, June 1, 2012 (UTC)

COJ Edit

Hey J. I just wanted to let you know that I finally got the Champion of Justice today ;) I'll be coming for that silver one you have soon =) --Skire (talk) 15:01, June 2, 2012 (UTC)

It'd be fun, not many have the Symbol of Order I don't think. I actually got two awards in that one edit - a Mr. Fixit (4,500 (surprised only 4 people have it)) and the CoJ. I hope I can stick it out for another 100 days, but schoolwork is getting heavier and I might be going back to China this summer =/ Let's see what happens. --Skire (talk) 15:20, June 2, 2012 (UTC)
My father's from China and his mother is in the hospital in a very delicate state of health. She's 92. So we might go back and visit and perhaps spend some time for vacation there too. I'm not sure about internet access there but I'd have most likely missed a day on the trip there anyway. --Skire (talk) 15:37, June 2, 2012 (UTC)
On another note, I have a question: I noticed some of the wiki achievements were disabled or discontinued after awhile. After browsing through your extensive list of earned achievements, it seems that quite a few have been cut off. A look at the achievements special page confirms that. I was curious as to why. --Skire (talk) 16:26, June 2, 2012 (UTC)
Oh, I see. Well that's a shame, because now it'll take longer for me to catch up ;) Onto something unrelated - I've been translating a few pages on the Chinese Fallout Wiki and I'm thinking of adopting it. It has absolutely no community besides the stream of spamming bots. --Skire (talk) 16:35, June 2, 2012 (UTC)
Don't worry, I'll still be around full-time here, but I wish to fix up the place a bit. There's very little content and up until now a lot of it is done via Google Translate, which produces broken and often incomprehensible Chinese. It also gives me some form of practise too =) --Skire (talk) 16:49, June 2, 2012 (UTC)

( Oh, I see. The pages are manually translated, instead of using Google Translate, so it'll take awhile to get everything going. After that I'll start fixing up some templates and other stuff. By the way, do images have to be separately uploaded in order to be used there? --Skire (talk) 19:38, June 2, 2012 (UTC)

Thanks, J. How about others' images, do I have to attribute them? --Skire (talk) 22:40, June 2, 2012 (UTC)

File deletion Edit

Why you've deleted four files (three FO1 random encounters and one icon) ? They're used in some articles at russian wiki that will be translated to English soon. Korney San 16:19, June 2, 2012 (UTC)

Pat on the backEdit

Oh! I'm honoured :)
I'm glad people have been enjoying my polls. It's all a lot of fun for everyone, exactly what this place needs until a new game is released. If you have any ideas just send them my way, Captain! Yes Man defaultUser Avatar talk 23:45, June 2, 2012 (UTC)

Chat Edit

Hi J. There's been a massive dispute in chat and many of us want your input. Could you join? =) --Skire (talk) 00:36, June 3, 2012 (UTC)

J, there's a new user in here who is pulling another Bearded Hoplite. We really need a 'crat to get him to listen to us. ~ Toci ~ Go ahead, make my day. 00:43, June 3, 2012 (UTC)

Chat Incident Edit

I want to bring your attention to Forum:Chat_Incident which concerns a incident in chat on the 2nd of June. As it concerns multiple users and members of the Administrative team we sought best to bring it both bureaucrats attention. Neko-signature Gothic NekoNeko's Haunt 21:02, June 3, 2012 (UTC)

hey would my gommorah picture be a cut picture or is it real TheHouseAlwaysWins

the one in blue that says dont go half-cocked TheHouseAlwaysWins

Moving to pages user's blog space Edit

Just want to make sure I got this right. I did the move correctly, but I should add the category when I move it, correct?-- The Gunny 380px-USMC-E7 svg 21:56, June 4, 2012 (UTC)

i got it off of google TheHouseAlwaysWins

Ulysses edit Edit

Hey Jspoelstra, I was wondering if I could your opinion on this edit: here on the Ulysses page. It doesn't seem too bad, but some parts do strike me as original research or speculation, so I'm not sure what to do. Paladin117>>iff bored; 23:10, June 4, 2012 (UTC)

Well, I was just about to ask them, but someone beat me to the punch. I hate it when that happens. Oh well, Paladin117>>iff bored; 23:36, June 4, 2012 (UTC)

Magazines Edit

Here's a thought: In any given area, if there are a large number of fixed skill magazines in a single area, would it only be notable if there were a large amount of skill magazines for an given individual magazine? Or would an over-abundance of varied magazines warrant notability as well? Dragon Skål! 00:41, June 5, 2012 (UTC)

I figured that would be the case! Thanks J. Dragon Skål! 00:53, June 5, 2012 (UTC)
Actually, speaking of which, can you check the GECK for all fixed skill magazine locations in Goodsprings? Sigma brought up a good point of them not being noted on the Goodsprings page. There's a pretty good number of them that are not randomized, so I think it's worth a mention. Dragon Skål! 01:11, June 5, 2012 (UTC)

Patroller Request Edit

Hello J. I'd like to apply for the position of patroller. I believe I am deserving of this position because A. I completely surpass the requirements (the requirements are: active on the wiki for at least 1 month, and make 250 edits in the main space. I personally have been active for 4 months and have made 269 main space edits). Also, I am on the wiki for many hours a day (usually anytime from 3pm to 11pm on weekdays), always checking the recent activities and ensure there is no vandalism being done. Continuing, I would believe that these powers could help with my project, especially since there are no tables to track progress. I'd like to thank you for any consideration, and I bid you good day. --3 of Clubs "This is my road, you'll walk it as I say" 01:13, June 5, 2012 (UTC)

Something to look into: Edit

We have a weird situation at the moment. I removed some extremely non-notable loot from Mitchel's House, (Laser Pistol, Doctor's Bag, etc.) and it was met with quite a bit of opposition, as certain users here felt it was in the best interests to pick and choose when to follow policies. However, Gunny has brought up the fact that our current Notable Loot list isn't actually in a correct policy page, rendering it void. I remember there being a vote, but after looking through the forums, I can only find discussions over Notable Loot from after the vote, but not the vote itself. I suppose this puts our Notable Loot policy into an awkward state, with no actual proof that a vote was put into motion. (That I can find so far.) What are your thoughts on this matter? Dragon Skål! 04:08, June 5, 2012 (UTC)

Binoculars Edit

I'm glad you didn't remove that. The rarity of them definitely gives them a place on that page.--Bunny2Bubble 06:19, June 5, 2012 (UTC)

Lol, I don't to create a big division now, but it's good to hear;) I knew you're on the side of addition, not subtraction. I hope you don't find it ill, mine and Leon's spat. I'm not the kind of person to sit by idly while something I don't like happens. The skill magazines sadden me too. They're so helpful throughout the course of the game. I just can't stress enough, this is all for those half a million anons that come through here a day. To help them. Those binoculars may have plotted a player's attack on Cottonwood Cover or something.--Bunny2Bubble 06:26, June 5, 2012 (UTC)
I appreciate you looking over my posts. As for me, it's time for bed. I have a prior engagement in the morning but afterwards I'll have a couple of free hours before work. I look forward to see what you have to say about the notable loot. Goodnight!--Bunny2Bubble 06:41, June 5, 2012 (UTC)
