Radscorpion Edit

Instead of listing e.g. 70↔80 HP for the regular radscorpion at Radscorpion (Fallout: New Vegas), the table should be split into separate rows for versions with different stats, like e.g. at centaur (Fallout: New Vegas). Ausir(talk) @fandom 00:53, April 29, 2011 (UTC)

Giant catfishEdit

Reverted your redirect, since the page is primarily for the mentioned-only Fallout 1 creature. Ausir(talk) @fandom 09:55, April 29, 2011 (UTC)

Well, I think it would be a good idea to add major locations (e.g. like we have ones mentioned under each major variant's heading at Dog (Fallout: New Vegas). Ausir(talk) @fandom 11:10, April 29, 2011 (UTC)

Yao Guai table links Edit

Apparently the excessive linking rule doesn't apply to tables despite the same link being present three times with a matter of inches between them. Is this correct? I haven't found anything in the guidelines. --233345-cartman1 tinyUser Avatar talk 13:33, April 29, 2011 (UTC)

Alright, I believe I've had a similar issue before and GhostAvatar agreed with me, but that may have been about excessive capitalisation, I'll check my talk page. Thanks for your input. --233345-cartman1 tinyUser Avatar talk 14:01, April 29, 2011 (UTC)
Yeah it was capitalisation you can disregard that tidbit ^ --233345-cartman1 tinyUser Avatar talk 14:02, April 29, 2011 (UTC)

user edits Edit

is there a way to restore all the edits at a single time on a page, as iv noticed you correcting edits made by NCR TROOPER, most edits he made has been similar and pointless, and i did leave him a note to say only make nesacery edits. cheers user:ziplobthud pop the zip 15:32, April 29, 2011 (UTC)

cheers for that dude, just it can be a bit time consuming when someone makes lots of separate edits to the same page and having to revert them one at a time, but knowing this will make things much easier, thanks pop the zip 15:50, April 29, 2011 (UTC)


PSA Edit

Dear Jspoelstra, I have noticed that most people have not read the Wiki Policy and also have alot of feed back to give. I have found a solution for this. An admin (I could be the one if made an Admin), should put up a Public Service Announcement that discusses feedback on the problems users are having on the Wiki and also remind people what the Wiki Policies are. Another problem I have seen is the constant Horrible comments put on the news articles. I suggest it become one of the admins, (Again I could be the one if I am made an Admin), duties to delete sexist, racist, hurtful and all around hateful comments. My first solution would definitely keep the number of messages and annoyances you get on a day to day buisness. These Public Service Announcements could either be weekly or evey few days. The second suggestion I gave would be a great idea because of the hatred that comments are causing between members and anons, also amongst the members themselves. I recently saw even an Anon insulting you, Ausir and many other admins on this site. The quarrels are actually pushing people away from the Wiki because people feel that it is not a safe enviroment. Thank you for your time. --PipGirl 16:24, April 29, 2011 (UTC) I actually have sent a message to Ausir about this because I know most of you guys hate checking comments and I love to do it. I would be a very trustworthy Admin if that is what it takes for me to be able to help out by deleting comments that go against policy. I am a strict believer in policy and I actually am the founder and beauracrat for the ONYX wiki (onyx.wikia.com) which is a clan page for my roommate, so I know what it is to have responsibility. If I were to become an admin so that I could have the oppurtunity to help in this way I would love to show you rather than tell you that I can do this and if I do ever make a mistake I will own up to it. --PipGirl 23:01, April 29, 2011 (UTC)

yes I know I left that image there and i am sorry because i tried to undo the image but it kept popping up so i apologyze and hope it was no big trouble thank you

Naaa, you will be OK. That was the original intent, but I never got around to doing any more that the ammo pages myself. So many unfinished things still to do =( User avatar tagUser Avatar talk 00:21, April 30, 2011 (UTC)
Although, the images seem a bit washed out, are you auto leveling the image in photoshop shift+ctrl+L. User avatar tagUser Avatar talk 00:25, April 30, 2011 (UTC)
No, it isnt auto tone either, it is auto levels. It is kinda like auto contrast but more extreme, it makes the darkest point in the image pure black and the lightest point in the image pure white and then adjust the whole scale inbetween. You can bring up the levels menu by ctrl+L, but holding the shift key as well does it automatically for you. User avatar tagUser Avatar talk 00:32, April 30, 2011 (UTC)

Ohhh, I see what is happening to the image, it is semi transparent. When you copy the image you also need to select the RGB channels as well. I perfected the technique and never updated you lol. Once you have the background black, you select the alpha channel as normal by clicking while holding ctrl, then you select the RGB channel as well by clicking it while holding ctrl+shift before you do the expand and then copy over into a new image, then auto levels with ctrl+shift+L. User avatar tagUser Avatar talk 00:39, April 30, 2011 (UTC)

EDIT correction, not the actual RGB channel, but each Red Green and Blue channel seperate. User avatar tagUser Avatar talk 00:41, April 30, 2011 (UTC)

Images Edit

Don't warry, it won't happen again. One thing, what's that image of the 25000 club?--Scavenger of the Wasteland 23:25, April 30, 2011 (UTC)

Congratulations then, you made a very good work.--Scavenger of the Wasteland 23:25, April 30, 2011 (UTC)

Image tips? Edit

Hey, just trying to take images for the more obscure items, & failed at removing the background on my 1st one. What should I do/use to do that? (I don't have Photoshop.) Canti-sama(talk) 19:38, May 1, 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for the info, & I saw after I uploaded it I messed up. Just as well it's gone. =P Canti-sama(talk) 20:16, May 1, 2011 (UTC)

Achievements Edit

So, if you didn't notice, Confirmed Bachelor 777, deleted both of our remarks off of his talk page. He has been warned, and if you see he still abusing the achievement system, don't hesitate to block him. TrailerParkApe TPA 22:32, May 1, 2011 (UTC)

Alien page Edit

If it isn't on the list, then it should be added. User avatar tagUser Avatar talk 23:28, May 1, 2011 (UTC) I agree.

SighEdit

Can you tell this guy? User:ziplobthud: He keeps adding delete tags for no reason on articles. He won't give a reason for his deletion and just adds them randomly. He obviously has no idea what he is doing. Trolly Polly 09:48, May 2, 2011 (UTC)

deletes Edit

sorry to bother you dude, iv marked a couple of new pages for deletion, but the user:Trolly Polly keeps reverting them back, even after telling him to use talk pages, just wondering what your take is on the situation, user:ziplobthud

Thanks.

If you guys have any other missing pages, send me a link and I'll see what I can dig up.

Super mutants Edit

I added them because I thought it was odd that they were left out, seeing as they are a major part of the Fallout universe. I read the scope of the project a while ago and must have missed the last bullet. I will remove them immediately from both projects. Kastera (talk) 16:05, May 2, 2011 (UTC)

I also got rid of the Swampfolk line from the Fallout 3 project, since they're aligned with the super mutant faction. Should I have?

Deathclaw page Edit

I see there's many occasions on the deathclaw page where there's a capital "D" on many of the "deathclaw" words, and many where there's not. What is the standard, Capitalized or lower-letters? Best regards, gears of duty

Thanks! I'll start lowercase some mid-sentence words right away. gears of duty

Icons Edit

Yeah, the articles should have the in-game icons, even if they clash with what the actual item looks. Ausir(talk) @fandom 22:09, May 2, 2011 (UTC)

A question... Edit

Two faced

two sided

Am i supposed to keep a good behavior on other wikis as well? i mean im not doing anything wrong on other wikis. i just feel that i behave alot better on this wiki this wiki than the rest.4TimestheSteak 23:00, May 2, 2011 (UTC)

Armor Edit

Looks fine for now, although it would be best if the main armor image had both the armor itself and the helmet, in my opinion. There won't be any place for helmet icon then, but I think we can just skip that. Ausir(talk) @fandom 15:46, May 3, 2011 (UTC)

RE: Slave scarfEdit

I added the pre-war outfit in the paragraph as it was in the repair infobox, dunno if it's true. As for being able to repair it with stormchaser hats, I'm pretty sure I did it once with a 100% fixed stormchaser hat, and I didn't have the Jury Rigging perk. My scarf is now 100% fixed, and I don't know can it degrade, let alone can the poor shots of the wasteland hit it, so I can't check it myself for now. Sorry if neither were correct, you could always check the GECK for accurate information, if you can. - CRIMINAL SCUM 16:59, May 3, 2011 (UTC)

Any reason you deleted my button man picture and then uploaded one that looks almost exactly the same? Just wondering what the problem is - don't want to repeat it. Cheese eater42 22:09, May 3, 2011 (UTC)

Tandi Edit

I've added one quite far down the page, I'm not sure if I got rid of that myself or not, probably did. Rectified now however, I just have a problem with them all being so close together. --233345-cartman1 tinyUser Avatar talk 12:05, May 4, 2011 (UTC)

Hijacked account? Edit

I didn't edit the Mr. Handy. Unless someone hijacked my account....ShartMaster 19:15, May 4, 2011 (UTC)

From looking at it, the edit in question was made from a anon, not an account, so it cant be a account hijack. The issue is down to the ip that was blocked, which can be a shared or dynamic ip, meaning it may not be the account holder who made the edit.

Glowing One Edit

Is it a proper noun, or is it a descriptive name of the creature, just like super mutants etc. User avatar tagUser Avatar talk 20:10, May 4, 2011 (UTC)

I'd say "glowing one" myself. And it's not just a kind of feral ghouls. There are non-feral glowing ones too (mostly in FO1 and 2, but there's one in FNV too). Ausir(talk) @fandom 20:26, May 4, 2011 (UTC)

You blocked my IP Edit

The block was made by Jspoelstra. Reason given: Inserting nonsense/gibberish into pages: on several pages and blog comments Start of block: 16:01, May 4, 2011 Expiry of block: 16:01, May 18, 2011 Intended blockee: 10.7.11.42 Block ID: #10491 Current IP address: 10.7.11.42 Why was I blocked? What reason do you have for blocking me? I have only edited about two articles in the past days, and those were only to try and delete what this one asshole was doing, which was vandalizing, and that wasn't even using my IP I was using, I was using my account? Give me an exact reason. I demand to know what page I edited that was considered gibberish, and if it was gibberish, why? Sombar1 20:42, May 4, 2011 (UTC) This isn't y IP. I didn't make those edits. Why does it say I have the same IP as this guy? Sombar1 20:44, May 4, 2011 (UTC) I was using this computer, but I hate logging in. Its pointless. But how can someone share the same IP as someone else? Aren't IPs unique to the individual computer? p.s. sorry I was kind of a douche I was just really pissed over some stuff. Sombar1 22:26, May 4, 2011 (UTC)

Not all IPs are unique to a computer. Many ISPs use dynamic IPs, which they randomly assign to their users. So it's possible that a vandal had used this IP before. Although with three such users in a row, it does seem rather unlikely. Maybe it's a bug... Ausir(talk) @fandom 23:23, May 4, 2011 (UTC)

Was the "block anonymous users only" box checked when you were blocking these IPs? Ausir(talk) @fandom 23:27, May 4, 2011 (UTC)

Blocked IP Edit

The block was made by Jspoelstra. Reason given: Inserting nonsense/gibberish into pages; browsing through edits, deserves longer block Start of block: 16:08, May 4, 2011 Expiry of block: 16:08, May 11, 2011 Intended blockee: 10.7.11.62 Block ID: #10492 Current IP address: 10.7.11.62

where is the false information? is this because of that blog posting thing? because i don't go editing pages much.... scratch that i haven't edited squat in recent times. i only edit my user page or make the occasional comment to a blog. seriously though what false information? Mister Cee 93

Brotherhood of steel pagesEdit

I was think that since the capitol wasteland brotherhood of steel and the Mojave wasteland are so distinctly different that there should be there own stand alone pages for them.

What do you think?

Big sal-NeroEdit

We dont have a page for the Jackal Gang leader.

I've noticed that the enemy is more well equiped than the standard Jackals, would you like me to Add it as a page? (User:Chief editor 13 11:48, May 5, 2011)

Viper leaderEdit

Same as last time with the Jackal leader but since the Vipers are more well equiped do you think they deserve there own page. (User:Chief editor 13 09:46 AM, May 6, 2011.

Legion recruitEdit

Man I'm sorry if I keep buggin you like this but I noticed that we have a page for Legion recruit armor but not a page for legion recruits. Do you want me to make a page? I have run into several troops called legion troops. Never mind man, I looked at the wrong name. Its Recruit legionary

Jerry the Punk Edit

When you have a moment, could you please try to explain to me just why Jerry the Punk is chasing some random gambler around the Moron Fort trying to punch his lights out? I escorted the butthead all the way from Red Rock (there's no other way he'll make it alive at the end of Cry Me A River), and as soon as he arrives he starts a fight? I already had to kill a couple of innocent Crimson Caravan to keep him alive.

Insult? Edit

I was wondering what the Vault's policy on insulting other users is. I'm not asking you to ban the person involved or anything silly like that so I'm not going to name any names, I just want to know and I trust you. Besides it isn't a very extreme case at all I just felt somewhat taken aback. Appreciate it. --233345-cartman1 tinyUser Avatar talk 20:10, May 6, 2011 (UTC)

A warning should suffice, I think she's probably still mad about trying to call me out on something and it turned out she was wrong. I don't think it's worth a ban, it won't give me any satisfaction. --233345-cartman1 tinyUser Avatar talk 21:25, May 6, 2011 (UTC)

It seems there is a trick to it, since I know I used the thingys before my name that time but it didn't show up as a link. I recently added a favorite quote as my "signature" and it seems to have caused the change. Any thoughts on that?

Armor and clothing images Edit

Download these [1] [2] [3] [4]

They should make your job easier, male and female heads and both hands already done. As for the armor I will give you an example, take 1950stylecasual01 female. If you have the side panel(F2) in list view it should be the second one down, what you need is the textures for it, it will be a couple down from that named BSShaderTextureSet. Now in the block list detail (F3), you will have the textures with a arrow next to it. Click the arrow to expand and you will see the set of textures that make up for the skin of that section. All you need to do is double click the top texture and delete the texture before pressing return. Then repeat for the legs. User avatar tagUser Avatar talk 19:52, May 7, 2011 (UTC)

That is simple, just change the angle of the light source. Go to render then settings, under the color tabs uncheck the frontal check box, then in position choice the angles of light. I normally have declination at -75 and planar at 0. But now you know why I have kinda been putting it off, takes a lot of time to make a single one.

Quest suggestionEdit

Hey dude i have a little proposition. I was looking over the Elder Scrolls wiki recently and i noticed that their quests are listed in pages according to their respective factions. This makes it very easy to find certain quests, so i was wondering. Why don't we do something of that sort too? Such as list all NCR quests on a specific page dedicated to the NCR?(Nemerian 13:56, May 8, 2011 (UTC))


I agree, that's an excellent idea, is it workable? "Those who hammer their guns into plows will plow for those who do not..." Thomas Jefferson. Helena 15:05, May 10, 2011 (UTC)HelenaHanbanzkt

Holotape -> Misc Item Edit

I only did that because of the wording at the top of the holodisks & notes pages, that says "This page is about holodisks and paper notes which contain readable text or voice recordings. For other holodisks and notes, see FO3/FNV Misc items" & because not all holodisks & notes are also misc items, the item usually is what adds the note. I've changed some pages to have the Item & Note base IDs, if applicable. And as for the misc item category, I wasn't sure, but figured better safe than sorry, if that phrase is applicable here. =P

  • Also, I had added some variation of: "Though it no longer serves any purpose, this item is still found in the game files for Fallout: New Vegas to the notes section of legacy items, just wondering if that's alright. Oh, & should the infobox list FNV as a game an item is found in, if it's legacy content?

Fallout Answers Edit

Since I find you to be a useful, dedicated worker here, I am inviting you to make an account on Fallout Answers, a site dedicated to answering questions about the Fallout series that The Vault does not directly address. The reason I ask is because the workforce on this site is quite literally three people. Three people cannot handle the mass array of questions that come through efficiently, so I ask you to help answer questions as well. It would be a massive help to the Fallout community. Let me know your decision on my talk page. Kastera (talk) 17:46, May 8, 2011 (UTC)

QuestsEdit

Yes the main quests are listed by faction, i know. But i meant with the side quests as well (for example "NCR Sidequests" and "Legion Sidequests" and things of that sort).(Nemerian 12:41, May 9, 2011 (UTC))

I know that, but i just do it for the sake of removing the capital letters from the middle of a sentence.(Nemerian 13:46, May 9, 2011 (UTC))

Re: Fallout Answers Edit

Alright, alright. I just don't think you know how little time it takes out of your being online. When I wasn't an admin, it took only about 10 minutes or so to do a round through the site. There usually about 5 questions every day that need to be answered, so it's really not a big time investment to a standard user. I respect your decision and hope you make an account soon. Besides, Ghost joined and has been helping out too. Best regards, Kastera (talk) 13:52, May 9, 2011 (UTC)

Dispute Edit

I would value your opinion on a dispute I'm currently having with a user, after I have had to revert several of his edits and I'd rather this didn't turn into an argument.

Sure thing. Oh, and should holodisks that are a misc item as well have the "Catagory:Fallout (3/NV) misc items" tag at the bottom in addition to the holodisk & notes tag? Canti-sama(talk) 14:37, May 9, 2011 (UTC)

OK, I only asked about the category tags b/c it seemed like Avatar was addressing the naming/link in the intro, not the tags at the bottom of the page as well. (I had asked about both, I think.) Wasn't trying to subvert anyone's authority or anything like that. (I swear!) =P Canti-sama(talk) 15:02, May 9, 2011 (UTC)

Heavy frame Edit

Yup, I'm sure it's 1000. ModNV44RevolverHeavyFrame ".44 Revolver Heavy Frame" [IMOD:0010C85C] returns a value of 1000. Nitty Tok. 14:47, May 9, 2011 (UTC)

Future admin Edit

Hi, Jspoel! You might want to take a look at this, our possible future admin. Don't forget to check his talk page history too. Cheers! GobTheGoul 16:33, May 9, 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for following our conversations, in this way other admins and the bureaucrats may see the whole situation and will make the right decision. GobTheGoul 22:42, May 9, 2011 (UTC)

Arcade Gannon Edit

Lol, no it is actually the previous image from the history of the infobox image for Arcade, they keeps adding that poor quality picture so I decided to add the better one. As for the hats, you add them the same as the head etc. Now some add them in the right place and others add them at the feet. If it adds them at the feet you need to adjust its position. To do this, look for the bottom NiNode in the block list that is labelled as scene root (this only works if after adding the hat, if you add other things after the hat it will be in order of how you added them. For example if you added the hat second from last, then you want to be looking for the second to last scene root). Once you have got it, right click and goto transform and edit. Now change the Z axis until the hat fits right, on most the tests I have done it seems to be around 113 for this value. User avatar tagUser Avatar talk 19:59, May 9, 2011 (UTC)

I've also taken a snapshot of Josh Graham, and he seems to be working alongside the Sorrows, but I don't have admin rights to Graham's page, if I upload it would you open a gallery and place it there, possibly? --Geerardr 23:12, May 11, 2011 (UTC)

Hey Jspoelstra i was looking at the badges and i saw the "hunting master" platinum badge listed. I am wondering how is this badge obtainable? Thanks(Nemerian 17:04, May 12, 2011 (UTC))

Talkpage deletion Edit

Yes, I totally agree to changing talk page rules. It will help our community, I think. --GobTheGoul 21:12, May 12, 2011 (UTC)

Depends on the change but whatever. While we're on the subject of talk pages, how does the Archives function on talk pages work? I've tried using the double { and Archives at the top of the page but how do you get the content into an archive? X_X Great Mara 21:15, May 12, 2011 (UTC)

For when you come back Edit

I've tried having the bot fix the double redirects, but it can't even load the list of redirects. Seems like Wikia still hasn't fixed that bug...

Regarding the icons, they're not displayed twice for me. Have you tried purging the page in question and doing a hard refresh? -- Porter21 (talk) 13:42, May 13, 2011 (UTC)

I can view the page as well, but the bot retrieves pages a different way (via API). I'll try again later, but I seem to recall that the bot can't edit those redirect pages either - last time we had something like that I deleted the double redirects manually. -- Porter21 (talk) 14:35, May 13, 2011 (UTC)

Question of relevance Edit

I just added a "Behind the Scenes" section to the Dermal Impact Assault Enhancement page, but since it's my first time adding something like that, at least in that type of section, I was wondering if it was relevant or needed some revision. I'm best at taking info from game files & combining info from similar pages to make things standardized, so this is kinda foreign territory for me. Also, not sure what exactly the rules for the Behind the Scenes sections are. Thanks, Canti-sama(talk) 16:05, May 13, 2011 (UTC)

  • Thanks, added the reference to the list, as well. Canti-sama(talk) 17:06, May 13, 2011 (UTC)
I've seen up through about the middle of season 4 of Red Dwarf. I was checking them out from a local library, but then I got distracted to other things, & later moved away from that library. I wouldn't mind owning the series, if I had the money. =P

Blood pack Edit

Hi! Just noticed that the Blood pack is listed in both Drink and Chems tables. Should I remove it from one of the tables, and which one if so? --GobTheGoul 16:47, May 13, 2011 (UTC)

Appearances Edit

I'm just doing what I always do and what feels best in my opinion. Remember, the project's a guideline, not gospel (plus, most articles on the wiki have the appearances at the bottom). Personal_Sig_Image.gif Tagaziel (call!) 22:16, May 13, 2011 (UTC)

Hudson Hawk Easter eggs Edit

In the old Bruce Willis movie Hudson Hawk, one of the villains is wearing a cheesy-looking white pinstriped suit that is suspiciously similar to the Dirty Pre-War Suit and in one scene he is playing with a gold brick which he says is worth 8 grand, the selling price of the Dead Money bars.

They're both fairly oblique so I wasn't sure if anyone else thinks they're Easter Eggs. What's your opinion?

Couldn't rename page with typo in the article name Edit

Hey, why is the Camp McCarran Concourse article called "Camp McMarran Concourse"? Doesn't appear to be (recent) vandalism so I guess it's a typo? I tried to rename it but it didn't work so I guess it needs an admin. --Actreal 13:05, May 14, 2011 (UTC)

I know how to move and rename pages, but the wiki wouldn't let me for this page for some reason and said an admin needed to do it. Hence the post to your talk page. --Actreal 01:12, May 15, 2011 (UTC)

Ranger Edit

This is my understanding, when referring to a rank then no it isn't capped, ie: Hardin is head paladin. But when referring to a person it is, ie: Head Paladin Hardin. Same goes with ranger, with the exception of if you referring to the organisation, then that is also capped, ie: Hanlon is a ranger or Hanlon is a member of the Rangers.

Auto vs autoEdit

auto is correct. auto is not a proper noun, it's just auto, therefore it should be decapitalised, as there is no need for capitalisation. Trolly Polly Olly 18:19, May 14, 2011 (UTC)

.45 Auto Edit

Yes it is a proper noun, there should be notes left in the pistol page already that states that. I keep seeing people moving them both back and forward, so I am going to go protect the page from being moved by any other than admins. User avatar tagUser Avatar talk 18:24, May 14, 2011 (UTC)

It's just the type of gun it is (automatic fire). It's not a brand name or etc, therefore it's not a proper noun. Trolly Polly Olly 18:25, May 14, 2011 (UTC)

Ranger is a proper noun when referring to NCR Rangers. If you have doubts, look up US Army Rangers. Personal_Sig_Image.gif Tagaziel (call!) 09:05, May 15, 2011 (UTC)

I'm not sure if I looked hard enough, but the only stipulations I saw about user page images in the policy areas were 5 per user page and that there file names had to make it clear that they were user images.
