== Curie III parameter question ==
== Proofreading and grammar ==
 
   
  +
I was wondering if you could you please verify the parameters of this Curie III quote. Specifically how they are activated. Is it a result of the Project Impurity quest? Also, which that the correct question asked?
That was after proofreading.... <:( --[[User:Ant2242|Ant2242]] ([[User talk:Ant2242|talk]]) 17:31, February 18, 2020 (UTC)

:The Lone Wanderer:
==Junk items and splitting==
 
  +
:Where did you get your water?
Hey so I asked around on Discord and the feedback about splitting FO4/76 junk items is mixed. Probably landed on a rough consensus of "only split if combining the two games on one page is making it difficult for the reader". So something like [[Skull]] is a good candidate for splitting, but there's less of a reason to split something like the [[Fuse (Fallout 4)]] page which can be scrolled through pretty quickly.
 
  +
:How do you make your "holy water"?
  +
:Curie III: ''"It was a gift from Atom. I was meditating right here in Springvale, when four of His armored angels came to me. When I said I was from Megaton, they gave me barrels of "Aqua Pura," and said I should share it with my people. They were very clear on that. But when I shared some with my Enlightened brethren, it made them terribly ill. I questioned why Atom had brought a pestilence upon us. That's when I thought to consecrate it with Atom's Light. And lo and behold, it removed the pestilence and made the finest holy water imaginable!"''
   
 
--[[User:Ant2242|Ant2242]] ([[User talk:Ant2242|talk]]) 04:16, 11 June 2021 (UTC)
When I asked about consistency and matching the approach with how FO3/NV items are combined, someone raised that [[Turpentine (Fallout 3)]] and [[Turpentine (Fallout: New Vegas)]] have been split, so there's precedent for splitting based solely on editor's discretion.
 
   
  +
== Knights and paladins ==
I do however feel like there's an overall desire to make how we organise our junk pages "better", whatever better might look like. So maybe something to revisit in the future after FO76 is dead and we're waiting for FO5. :) --[[User:L84tea|L84tea]] [[File:Tea kettle.png|25px|link=User talk:L84tea]]<sup><i>Would you like a cup of tea?</i></sup> 12:32, February 19, 2020 (UTC)

So on the aforementioned pages there appears to be a lot of outdated information, such as constant mentions of the midwestern bos ranks (without a non-canon warning), as well as references to knights and journeyman knights being different (which contradicts the hierarchy page). Also the role equivalence across the various chapters seems to bee pretty arbitrary (such as a WC head knight being 'roughly' the same thing as an EC knight commander). Can I cut a lot of this out where necessary? [[User:Branebriar1930|Branebriar1930]] ([[User talk:Branebriar1930|talk]]) 12:46, 11 June 2021 (UTC)

==2102 vs. 2103==
 
Hey J. I wanna make sure we're ready for Wastelanders when it drops in April, so I think we should make some preparations for the work that'll need to be done. One thing I wanted to ask you about is the use of 2102 in existing pages. Since Wastelanders will be a year later in 2103, should these links be changed to the new date? I'm mostly talking about instances of "X is a Y in Appalachia in 2102." Of course, it'll get more attention in places like Flatwoods that we know will be changed with the update, but what about some random location that might not be affected by the update? I feel that Wastelanders might be somewhat weird to work with overall, since it's essentially putting a new game inside of existing places in 76.

I appreciate you reaching out to me. There was a rather hurtful situation that stemmed from Discord, and it came at a very bad time for me as I've had some unfortunate real-life circumstances affecting me. I just don't feel comfortable being admin anymore, especially after some private harassment I've received on Discord. I'll likely still pop in to edit from time to time, but I figure it's a position I don't really need or should have any longer. [[User:AllYourFavorites|AllYourFavorites]] ([[User talk:AllYourFavorites|talk]]) 18:10, 11 June 2021 (UTC)
: Gotcha. Would [[Rose (Fallout 76)|Rose]] be a good example of how to handle it? I just feel that not mentioning 2103 would be strange if it's still there in Wastelanders, even if nothing is changed, and the date has moved forward.

: Thanks. I do still enjoy editing, but I definitely need some time to step away from it for a while and not engage with some other elements of the wiki in the future, especially Discord, for my own mental health.

Hi Jan, how are you? I am just dropping by to get your thoughts on a little redesign I have been fussing over for the main page. You can check out my progress [[Template:Welcomehome1|over here]]. I thought it would be nice and tidy to have the page match the others I have been building (which in and of themselves are based on [[w:c:community:Community Central|Fandom Community Central]] design for the new update) like [[Fallout_Wiki:Welcome_editors|new editor welcome page]] and all [[Fallout Wiki:The Vault Academy|the Vault Academy]] sections. Some sections are work in progress elsewhere and would of course be added later on (like featured and did you know) plus it would be delightful to have a community portal/welcome section at some point. But before I talk too much, check it out when you have a moment and let me know what you think! -kate [[User:kdarrow|<font color="black">'''''kdarrow'''''</font>]] [[File:Pickman heart.png|17px|link=User talk:kdarrow]] <sup><i>take her for a spin!</i></sup> 11:42, 13 June 2021 (UTC)
Yeah so I was thinking about this while doing the pages but it's a bit weird with how 76 does it because even though the "crafting component" is referred to as Acid or otherwise, the actual inventory item is "Waste acid". But they're effectively the same thing - the most raw form of the material you have to have in your inventory to craft. I was actually thinking that we should join Acid and Waste Acid (and so on) in the same page because the two are effectively equivalent.

Howdy! I'm "refreshed" one thousand articles at Russian Fallout-Wiki, what showed 30+ [[:ru:Category:Страницы с неработающими файловыми ссылками| pages with broken files links]] (and major part is simple deletion, not renaming). I'm sure, we have more. Maybe, you can give informal "content moderator" status for one of ru-admins? For me, for example.

Bethesda did a preview at PAX yesterday.

Are we sure that's Batter in the trailer, with the plasma caster? I think that's just supposed to be a random player character, because he isn't shown wearing a Pip-Boy or a vault jumpsuit in the screenshot from ITV. '''[[User:AllYourFavorites|AllYourFavorites!]]''' ([[User talk:AllYourFavorites|talk]]) 17:14, February 29, 2020 (UTC)
 
: I guess that's where my confusion comes from. Yeah, they look the same, but it just seems odd that he has a Pip-Boy and a vault jumpsuit, which would usually indicate a player character from Vault 76. The trailer also shows him at Camden Park, then cuts to a first-person camera of a player shooting the plasma caster at floaters in the park. I'm 99% sure it's just a coincidence.

Jspoel, just an FYI. The Plasma caster guy is not Batter. Totally different hair, outfit, face, etc. The plasma caster guy even has a Pip boy. If possible, could you rename "Batter in trailer.png" to something else, simply because that isnt Batter?

I imagine you're getting asked about this quite a bit, but, to satisfy my curiosity, mind telling me why you gave Alex6122 content mod rights? My main reason for asking is that that's a role we hand out after a vote. Please let me know. Thanks!

:While I can understand the utility of what you and Alex had in mind the problem at hand is this: As bureaucrats we are empowered to hand out certain roles and abilities without a forum, such as patroller rights and interwiki rights, it doesn't include content moderator rights, which require a forum and all that. What I would suggest to solve this problem is to make a community vote of sorts, similar to what we had to do when asking for community support for check user rights, for a custom Interwiki+/Upgraded Interwiki role for Alex6122, or you go whole hog and have 'em make a full on content mod request. My idea with the Interwiki+ role is that it'd be a custom role tag that'd make clear that they're not quite content mod more so Interwiki with a bit extra. By putting it to a forum vote we allow folks to voice their thoughts and opinions and, more importantly, solve the issues that folks are having with the unilateral promotion.

:The statement on the Little Lamplight page was essentially an “it is unknown” type of statement.

::I don't know if it's a lack of community support so much as the fact that the standard procedure for granting those kinds of rights was circumvented. Folks see it as an abuse of the system, or an undermining of it at least. I've been around long enough to figure you don't mean anything malicious by it, but procedure needs to be followed. Like I said, we could do some kind of special rights request like we had to do for check user stuff. Put forth a forum where you outline what rights are needed, why, outline the qualifications and put it to a vote. Most folks I figure are rational enough to understand the usefulness of the idea you have. [[User:Richie9999|Richie9999]] ([[User talk:Richie9999|talk]]) 20:39, 16 June 2021 (UTC)

With most of the bureaucrats being out of commission, I was wondering what you'd think about delegating the handing out of Patroller rights to administrators as well?

I don't really see the point in having a rule against speculation when it comes to BTS, when you can just throw on an 'unverified' tag. It seems like you could justify anything with one of those.

== pistol page ==
 
 
Hey so you know how there are many weapon categories (revolvers, lever-action rifles, combat shotguns etc.)? i noticed that there isn't a proper one for pistols, just an unfinished and inaccurate list of weapons that end with the word pistol. Is the real reason we don't have a pistol page because it's a bit too vague of a term in the fallout universe? what with energy pistols and certain revolvers even called pistols(.32, 5.56). Even though pistols and revolvers aren't the same thing.
 
 
i think we should have a designated, ballistic pistol page as most other weapons have a category that they fit into but i'll need help determining parameters for a pistol as many weapons have the word 'pistol' in them but aren't actually pistols. I don't want another City scandal or Leon to go on a ban spree. I thing one big criteria should be: a magazine-fed handgun.
 
Alternatively i get if creating a page like this will cause too many problems you're not keen on the idea. Thanks--[[User:Branebriar1930|Branebriar1930]] ([[User talk:Branebriar1930|talk]]) 08:49, March 7, 2020 (UTC)

:: The line breaks absolutely do not break the formatting - it is common practice to have line breaks after tags, in the same sense that it is common practice to add paragraphs to long text blocks; it makes things easier on the eyes when trying to jump from one item to another.
 
 
:: As for the asterix, I'm not sure I'm following your logic here. It's improper typography - the same as if I'd be removing something grammatically incorrect. Just because something might look better to you personally, doesn't mean you are correct. Bullets are for lists - a single item, by definition, doesn't constitute a list.

::: I'm not suggesting that I'm going to even remotely entertain the idea of adding line breaks to every single article - but there's also nothing wrong with adding them as I go. They don't break the formatting, they don't break the guidelines/policies, and they are technically correct to add. Cognitive bias is not a legitimate reason to go around reverting other editors - this wiki is for everyone, and unless something is explicitly breaking the established rules, we can't go around telling people how to edit.
 
 
::: I'm not going by Wikipedia standards.

Butch is Duchess' assistant so I figured it was referring to her. She sounds pretty old on the holotapes. I don't think it's the same actress as the one in Wastelanders. '''[[User:AllYourFavorites|AllYourFavorites!]]''' ([[User talk:AllYourFavorites|talk]]) 23:42, March 7, 2020 (UTC)

Removed it because it was a bare effort overview that's made redundant by its more appropriate [https://fallout.fandom.com/wiki/Fallout_doctors article.] Why do we need a redundant, lower-quality article over the same exact thing?

Thanks! I also made some graphical adjustments to my game recently so newer images might have better lighting, etc. It's definitely a worrying time, though. All of my college classes were moved to online. I'm not even sure if I'll have commencement at this rate. A friend of mine on Discord also got it from his workplace, which really woke me up. I don't pay as much attention to the wiki statistics as I probably should, now would be the time to watch them.

==Quests on location pages==
 
Greetings! Thank you for the question. I was following the format listed in the [[Fallout Wiki:Article layout guideline/Location article|location article guideline]] resource page, that says for related quests, "If there are quests which start or take place in this location, list them here (just link them, no need to go into detail)." I can leave them though, no problem. Just let me know! -Kate ([[User:Kdarrow|Kdarrow]] ([[User talk:Kdarrow|talk]]) 21:56, March 20, 2020 (UTC))
 
: Absolutely, I can do that now. Thanks for the heads up! -Kate ([[User:Kdarrow|Kdarrow]] ([[User talk:Kdarrow|talk]]) 22:02, March 20, 2020 (UTC))
 
:: I am going down my own contributions page and picking them out. I don't remember it being a frequent change as far as location pages go. The good news is I know that I left the quest overviews on character and item pages as-is. -Kate ([[User:Kdarrow|Kdarrow]] ([[User talk:Kdarrow|talk]]) 22:13, March 20, 2020 (UTC))
 
 
== 2nd person ==
 
 
the main issue you seem have with those edits are the grammatical mistakes i am making, which i totally accept as my fault and i own. However i do not agree that it is fine to say 'player' instead of 'player character'. Saying the former is objectively wrong since the player is just the real-life person in front of a screen. i will take more care in making sure the sentences are grammatically sound but i am still going to correct the aforementioned terminology.
 
 
P.S. Some user named GreyFoxen is making a bunch of edits on fallout 76 pages and could really use some oversight.
 
 
== player character ==
 
 
i do actually agree with you that it is a bit awkward, just when the player/player character difference gets pointed out it becomes hard to ignore from then on.

Thank you so much for cleaning up the pages I edit/create articles for! I don't know much about making wiki pages, so I super appreciate it! :3. [[User:GreyFoxen]]

== New terminals ==
 
 
There are a lot of specifically named networks and terminals on the Gamepedia "computer" page. Where if anywhere should they be added here? I ask because both the "computer" pages need an update. Right now they are an overview for all "robots and computers", both hardware and software, and both complex and simple programs. I don't want to just port over the list creating a mostly red linked page. Also shouldn't the in game world object be recorded on the page?--[[User:Ant2242|Ant2242]] ([[User talk:Ant2242|talk]]) 22:55, March 23, 2020 (UTC)
 
 
Also the "terminal" overview.--[[User:Ant2242|Ant2242]] ([[User talk:Ant2242|talk]]) 02:15, March 24, 2020 (UTC)
 
 
It is a pretty large list with red links and I know you don't like those. Should the page be reorganised and or split into some sort of sub-overviews? ie. "Software", "Hardware", "Terminal commands", "Newtowrks" etc?
 
<nowiki>https://fallout.gamepedia.com/Computer#List_of_computers_in_the_Fallout_games</nowiki>
 
 
As for terminal on Gamepedia there is a list of lore known terminals, (Should they be mentioned on the computer page?) but it is an overview of here on Fandom "terminal entries"... So again, I am confused on how to proceed?

Curie III parameter question

I was wondering if you could you please verify the parameters of this Curie III quote. Specifically how they are activated. Is it a result of the Project Impurity quest? Also, which that the correct question asked?

The Lone Wanderer:
Where did you get your water?
How do you make your "holy water"?
Curie III: "It was a gift from Atom. I was meditating right here in Springvale, when four of His armored angels came to me. When I said I was from Megaton, they gave me barrels of "Aqua Pura," and said I should share it with my people. They were very clear on that. But when I shared some with my Enlightened brethren, it made them terribly ill. I questioned why Atom had brought a pestilence upon us. That's when I thought to consecrate it with Atom's Light. And lo and behold, it removed the pestilence and made the finest holy water imaginable!"

Knights and paladins

So on the aforementioned pages there appears to be a lot of outdated information, such as constant mentions of the midwestern bos ranks (without a non-canon warning), as well as references to knights and journeyman knights being different (which contradicts the hierarchy page). Also the role equivalence across the various chapters seems to bee pretty arbitrary (such as a WC head knight being 'roughly' the same thing as an EC knight commander). Can I cut a lot of this out where necessary? Branebriar1930 (talk) 12:46, 11 June 2021 (UTC)

Also (unrelated) what happened to half the upper staff? Especially Tag and Leon? Haven't been all that up too date. Branebriar1930 (talk) 13:05, 11 June 2021 (UTC)

Thank you for your concern

I appreciate you reaching out to me. There was a rather hurtful situation that stemmed from Discord, and it came at a very bad time for me as I've had some unfortunate real-life circumstances affecting me. I just don't feel comfortable being admin anymore, especially after some private harassment I've received on Discord. I'll likely still pop in to edit from time to time, but I figure it's a position I don't really need or should have any longer. AllYourFavorites (talk) 18:10, 11 June 2021 (UTC)

Thanks. I do still enjoy editing, but I definitely need some time to step away from it for a while and not engage with some other elements of the wiki in the future, especially Discord, for my own mental health. Best wishes to you as well. AllYourFavorites (talk) 18:23, 11 June 2021 (UTC)
Yeah, it's a balancing act, to be sure. For now though, I think my best option is to just take a long break. Don't think I've ever really had a major one since I started actively editing. AllYourFavorites (talk) 18:40, 11 June 2021 (UTC)

Vote confirm needed

Hello Jan, happy weekend! Need your seal of approval on Katy Webb chat mod vote which concluded. Thank you kindly! -kate kdarrow Pickman heart.png take her for a spin! 18:08, 12 June 2021 (UTC)

450k!

Wow congrats on 450k edits! You are my hero! -kdarrow Pickman heart.png take her for a spin! 18:09, 12 June 2021 (UTC)

Seems like the home stretch to me, you will have to update your userbox to say one half instead of one third. How exciting, I am cheering for you! -kdarrow Pickman heart.png take her for a spin! 23:51, 12 June 2021 (UTC)

Tinkering ahoy

Hi Jan, how are you? I am just dropping by to get your thoughts on a little redesign I have been fussing over for the main page. You can check out my progress over here. I thought it would be nice and tidy to have the page match the others I have been building (which in and of themselves are based on Fandom Community Central design for the new update) like new editor welcome page and all the Vault Academy sections. Some sections are work in progress elsewhere and would of course be added later on (like featured and did you know) plus it would be delightful to have a community portal/welcome section at some point. But before I talk too much, check it out when you have a moment and let me know what you think! -kate kdarrow Pickman heart.png take her for a spin! 11:42, 13 June 2021 (UTC)

More losing files

Howdy! I'm "refreshed" one thousand articles at Russian Fallout-Wiki, what showed 30+ pages with broken files links (and major part is simple deletion, not renaming). I'm sure, we have more. Maybe, you can give informal "content moderator" status for one of ru-admins? For me, for example. We can use status for access to deleted files, nothing more. --Alex6122 © 14:45, 15 June 2021 (UTC)

Good idea. You now have this status. --Alex6122 © 17:47, 15 June 2021 (UTC)

New content mod?

Noticed there is a new Cmod over from the Russian wiki, not that I am necessarily against it but shouldn't a Cmod position warrant a vote? Branebriar1930 (talk) 21:18, 15 June 2021 (UTC)

Alex6122 Content mod?

Howdy J, how's tricks?

I imagine you're getting asked about this quite a bit, but, to satisfy my curiosity, mind telling me why you gave Alex6122 content mod rights? My main reason for asking is that that's a role we hand out after a vote. Please let me know. Thanks! Richie9999 (talk) 23:22, 15 June 2021 (UTC)

While I can understand the utility of what you and Alex had in mind the problem at hand is this: As bureaucrats we are empowered to hand out certain roles and abilities without a forum, such as patroller rights and interwiki rights, it doesn't include content moderator rights, which require a forum and all that. What I would suggest to solve this problem is to make a community vote of sorts, similar to what we had to do when asking for community support for check user rights, for a custom Interwiki+/Upgraded Interwiki role for Alex6122, or you go whole hog and have 'em make a full on content mod request. My idea with the Interwiki+ role is that it'd be a custom role tag that'd make clear that they're not quite content mod more so Interwiki with a bit extra. By putting it to a forum vote we allow folks to voice their thoughts and opinions and, more importantly, solve the issues that folks are having with the unilateral promotion. Richie9999 (talk) 20:25, 16 June 2021 (UTC)
I don't know if it's a lack of community support so much as the fact that the standard procedure for granting those kinds of rights was circumvented. Folks see it as an abuse of the system, or an undermining of it at least. I've been around long enough to figure you don't mean anything malicious by it, but procedure needs to be followed. Like I said, we could do some kind of special rights request like we had to do for check user stuff. Put forth a forum where you outline what rights are needed, why, outline the qualifications and put it to a vote. Most folks I figure are rational enough to understand the usefulness of the idea you have. Richie9999 (talk) 20:39, 16 June 2021 (UTC)

Community Roundtable

Hello! We recently sent an email to your registered email account about a community roundtable event. We'd love to know if you're going to be able to make it. There's a link in the email to respond and RSVP if you're interested! Hope to see you there! HeyTots FandomStaff.png (Contact) 15:39, 17 June 2021 (UTC)

Welcome messages

Good question! The welcome message is not broken, but I am choosing to leave the notes to new users. I think it is helpful to thank new contributors, guide them to the Discord or Vault Academy, or handle inappropriate usernames quickly. I would be open to turning back on the bot for it later if I change priorities, but right now I rather like having this opportunity to be a friendly face to brand new folks :) -kate (kdarrow Pickman heart.png take her for a spin! 18:43, 17 June 2021 (UTC))

June meeting

Alrighty, as promised I have the forum ready to go for next weekend. You can add agenda items now, if you have any! It was a treat having you in Discord today, by the way, everyone loved it! :) -kate (kdarrow Pickman heart.png take her for a spin! 00:13, 19 June 2021 (UTC))

Behind the scenes

I don't really see the point in having a rule against speculation when it comes to BTS, when you can just throw on an 'unverified' tag. It seems like you could justify anything with one of those. The Ultracite page comes to mind. Branebriar1930 (talk) 08:44, 20 June 2021 (UTC)

Trainyards

All trainyards are uppercase in-game as well as in the game files, similar to stations that have already been updated. -kate (kdarrow Pickman heart.png take her for a spin! 18:21, 21 June 2021 (UTC))
