Welcome to Nukapedia!

Greetings, Katy Webb, and welcome to the Fallout Wiki!


If you have questions, please feel free to ask one of our administrators or moderators or head over to our Discord. We look forward to working with you!

Love your user page. Welcome back! -kdarrow Pickman heart.png take her for a spin! 03:03, 15 December 2020 (UTC)

Vault Academy

At long last, I am here to say hello, welcome to the Vault Academy. I am Classic Kate, your mentor and guide through the attractions. Right now I am working on moving the guides from my personal pages to the wiki pages, so forgive the mess. The first two lessons are good to go, though. So we can start. Hooray!

The main general editing program page can be found here. All lessons but the first will have a brief quiz, the answers to which you can record here. There are 12 lessons, a final exam (not scary) and then you will be prepared to go out and do great edits!

If what I have written is weird or confusing, assume its my writing and not your comprehension. So without further do, let me know if you have any questions, and I am so glad to have a member of the Free Kates enrolled, boy howdy. Happy trails! -kate (-kdarrow Pickman heart.png take her for a spin! 22:34, 29 April 2021 (UTC))

Adding references

Hey Katy, outstanding job on adding all those references for Porter and the Warwick family, they are much appreciated. I had to add some quotation marks though, you only placed a two apostrophes at the beginning and end of each quote, where it should be the two apostrophes to make the text italic and two quotation marks right after them at the beginning / before them at the end. Other than that, you are doing great from what I have seen. Let me know if I can help out with anything. Have a great day and happy editing. --FindabairMini-JSPnP Logo.pngThe benefit of the doubt is often doubtful. 16:10, 4 May 2021 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads up! I think I've been remembering the quotation marks and apostrophes since you've ponted it out, but let me know if there's anything else I can touch on when I'm editing :) —Katy Webb Icon vaulttec.png A better future, underground! 22:42, 11 May 2021 (UTC)
I noticed, you are doing great out there. I also like that you place citation needed templates on unreferenced infos.
For those, if you don't find anything in a character's dialogue, you usually find the info needed in
1) a related character's dialogue or 2) in terminal entries for the character's location or 3) in notes or holotapes related to the character.
All in all, very solid work and grand writing, keep them coming.
Have a great day and happy editing. --FindabairMini-JSPnP Logo.pngThe benefit of the doubt is often doubtful. 04:16, 12 May 2021 (UTC)

Audio file categorization

Hello! Thanks for adding a bunch of FO4 audio files. After you upload them, though, make sure that they have categories. Use Category:Fallout 4 audio dialogues for base game content, or "Category:<add-on> audio dialogues" for add-ons. Thanks! -CamelChip (talk) 18:39, 13 May 2021 (UTC)

You're welcome! My bad for that, and thanks for letting me know, I'll make sure I add them to their corresponding category from now on :) —Katy Webb Icon vaulttec.png A better future, underground! 19:10, 13 May 2021 (UTC)


Thanks for your images, you're pretty good at it, with avoiding shadows and all, and a good pose. To get optimal light, you can set the time to 12 (set gamehour to 12) and clear daylight is fw 2b52a. Jspoel Speech Jspoel.png 13:19, 16 May 2021 (UTC)

Thanks! I was aware of the (set gamehour to 12) but the weather one is new to me. I appreciate the tip and I'll be sure to put it to good use! —Katy Webb Icon vaulttec.png A better future, underground! 17:54, 16 May 2021 (UTC)

Free Kates unite

I am not sure if I am allowed to pick favorites, but if I am, you got that spot. I am sorry I have not been very timely in TVA lessons as I should be. I feel great shame but hope to catch up soon. Also soon I will be starting a few projects having to do with FNV world objects, and then another one with FO76 world objects that are workshop objects. If you are interested in either, I would fall all over myself to have you on the team. Also your signature is probably my favorite in the world. Free Kates er die! -kdarrow Pickman heart.png take her for a spin! 01:32, 19 May 2021 (UTC)

I'm so truly flattered to hear that (and no worries on time, I don't plan on going anywhere anytime soon;))! And I would love to join you on either or both projects, just tell me what to do! —Katy Webb Icon vaulttec.png A better future, underground! 01:36, 19 May 2021 (UTC)

Blog posts

I deleted your Katesplays category. Only if it becomes a considerable, returning item with some input from others, a real community feature, then we can talk about a separate category for it. Until then, it should just be in the blog posts category. Jspoel Speech Jspoel.png 14:04, 29 May 2021 (UTC)

Sure thing! We'll see what happens with it. —Katy Webb Icon vaulttec.png A better future, underground! 14:37, 29 May 2021 (UTC)

The pack

Noticed you added a citation needed to the pack page. Tried looking for the dialogue file where its mentioned but couldn't find it but remember from the game that it's generic pack dialogue, which goes along the lines of "Mason tarred and feathered the last alphas".Branebriar1930 (talk) 20:15, 29 May 2021 (UTC)

Yeah, I was thinking of that one too, but like you said, it's generic :( I had some help finding the line for other generic dialogue earlier in the same article. Plan on adding in a ref for the "tarred and feathered" dialogue when I have a chance to unpack some .txt a little later. —Katy Webb Icon vaulttec.png A better future, underground! 21:09, 29 May 2021 (UTC)


That is all Slipmcripfist (talk) 02:56, 1 June 2021 (UTC)

Thanks Roo :o) —Katy Webb Icon vaulttec.png A better future, underground! 02:57, 1 June 2021 (UTC)


One of the editors asked that we add a line or two about topics we plan on bringing up tomorrow, I think it is a good idea and went ahead and added mine. I am leaving a note for anyone who added items to the agenda go head on over to the list and add a bit of details, too. Thank you kindly! -kdarrow Pickman heart.png take her for a spin! 22:50, 25 June 2021 (UTC)

Dang, sorry, just saw this! :( my b. —Katy Webb Icon vaulttec.png A better future, underground! 02:17, 27 June 2021 (UTC)

Bicep emoji

Solid work on the BTS project. I know all too well how long it takes to look everything up, so I commend you. Keep up the good work! -kate classic (Pickman heart.png kdarrow take her for a spin! 03:07, 20 July 2021 (UTC))

Thank you Kate Classic! I'm rolling through them decently with the Powers of the Hive Mind! —Katy Webb Icon vaulttec.png A better future, underground! 03:17, 20 July 2021 (UTC)


Earle says welcome!

Hello esteemed editor, just wanted to extended a warm welcome to you, our newest patroller! I am excited to give you some brief information on the role. Here is Nukapedia's Patroller Guide that explains the new tools you have to make our wiki even better than ever.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask me or the other staff folks around here or the Discord, we are here to support you. Well-seasoned former patroller turned content moderator Findabair can also give a hand. I am excited to see chat mod/wiki side crossover activity, keep up the momentum and exceptional work. Ever Upwards! -Pickman heart.png kdarrow take her for a spin! 19:43, 27 July 2021 (UTC)

So glad to be here! Look forward to using the tools to make the wiki even better! Katy Webb Icon vaulttec.png A better future, underground! 00:17, 28 July 2021 (UTC)

Thank you

FO76 Barrels gone wild.png
You have been given a really great collection of barrels.
Your efforts and diligence have not gone unnoticed, and you have been given a small token of appreciation.
I am so thankful for your support of me on my b-crat app! I have had a blast derping around with you, looking for "attractions," suggesting "parchment" font, and pointing out where the shooters are. Free Kates for life!
All my love, Pickman heart.png kdarrow take her for a spin! 03:07, 28 July 2021 (UTC)
Aww thank you! I know you'll do great as a crat (and I had the most fantastic time on our trip! Can't wait to come back again some day!) Katy Webb Icon vaulttec.png A better future, underground! 12:56, 28 July 2021 (UTC)

Content policy

Saw your recent edit summary, but noticed something. While weapons needing dev confirmation is policy, they are the only thing currenty set by policy which requires such. Everything else under Behind the Scenes requires dev confirmation or is allowed if there is a visual or textual correlation. Great Mara (talk) 13:10, 30 July 2021 (UTC)

Hey there, In my summary I believe I mentioned that exact visual representation is also permitted, just not speculation - though I personally believe other objects should fall under this policy, which plan on bringing up at MOTM tomorrow of in a forum and get some feedback on for the next phase of BTS spec removal :) Katy Webb Icon vaulttec.png A better future, underground! 13:20, 30 July 2021 (UTC)

Citation needed

Can you not add so many citations needed templates on pages? It looks bad to see it every sentence. Instead try to find out where it comes from (mostly a holotape or maybe terminal entry), and add that reference. Jspoel Speech Jspoel.png 16:45, 15 October 2021 (UTC)

Why do you keep adding these citation needed templates? It this something Kate told you to do? Imagine you keep doing this for all the deceased character pages, the wiki pages would be totally cluttered with citation needed and give the impression of a very incomplete wiki. I admit it's sometimes hard to find the source but the information must have been put there for good reason at some point. You could also check the page history to see where content is added and ask them where they got the info. I don't agree with all these templates and you could do them in a few less edits too. Jspoel Speech Jspoel.png 17:32, 15 October 2021 (UTC)
You're putting the deceased character category below the interwikis. It should be placed above the interwikis, with the other categories. Jspoel Speech Jspoel.png 17:35, 15 October 2021 (UTC)
They do look bad, and the wiki is incomplete if we don't have the references. It's almost like they should have had a referenced to begin with. The {{citation needed}} tag is useful, as it allows people to see what articles need citations and help out. Since there is literally nothing against this in our policy, I will continue top put these in for now, as I am working on a category project and I like to finish one thing before I start another. I am also keeping track of them in my sandbox, as I do plan to return to them later when the project is finished. I would also like to note that your behavior is hinging on edit stalking and I will be bringing this up with another crat.
As for the number of edits? You were doing something similar on other pages I edited, using two edits per article instead of one, and as I am a patroller, my edits do not need to be verified. Unless there is a policy that goes against this, I'm not sure I understand the problem.
As for the categories, totally my bad, I was using the "add category" button since it was faster instead of a full edit, and Fin told me I also missed a |Deceased break at the end, which I will correct from this point forward. I'm sure you understand since, as you've said, those pesky edit summaries can be so inconvenient when you're doing 100 edits a day. Katy Webb Icon vaulttec.png A better future, underground! 18:10, 15 October 2021 (UTC)

( I wasn't stalking you. I was waiting for a reply while you kept adding these citation needed which kept me worried. Just added a reference to Cindy Cofran for the asphyxiation. I could have found that yourself with not too much effort and it would have avoided the citation needed there. Also, you shouldn't use the |Deceased following the Category:Fallout 4 deceased characters. It adds a character to the D in the alphabet, like the Callahans. Jspoel Speech Jspoel.png 18:57, 15 October 2021 (UTC)

This is not about effort, as I am aware that this can easily be found on the Vault 111 terminal entries. This is about making it easier for the wiki to be collaborate together, and as I said clearly in my last reply, I am focusing on one project, and one project only right now. Additionally, |Deceased is intentional, as otherwise it files everything under "F," which I have confirmed with multiple other editors on Discord - the Nukapedia Discord, which I feel I should specify since there are offshoots such as the separate bureaucrat Discord that you and Richie have curated. You're welcome to bring this topic to #the-editorial-ballpit there as well if you are so inclined, as we have already been talking extensively about it. Katy Webb Icon vaulttec.png A better future, underground! 20:04, 15 October 2021 (UTC)
Not using the deceased parameter doesn't leave the page under F in the category, it leaves it under the correct alphabet letter, namely the name of the page and not the first letter of the category where it's in. Now you just added Smith to that category and as you see in Category:Fallout 4 deceased characters, you left it under the D of deceased and not the S where it should be under. Don't use that parameter, it will only get reverted in my opinion. I'll leave the same message in the editorial bullpen tomorrow is my plan. Jspoel Speech Jspoel.png 20:18, 15 October 2021 (UTC)
For the |Deceased usage, I am to blame. I meant to tell Katy to use that for any new "Deceased" categories she creates, but apparently I misformulated my sentence. I am going to fix those, no harm done. –FindabairMini-JSPnP Logo.pngThe benefit of the doubt is often doubtful. 19:31, 16 October 2021 (UTC)

( Thanks for the assist Fin! Sorry for the misunderstanding. Katy Webb Icon vaulttec.png A better future, underground! 19:53, 16 October 2021 (UTC)


you have my vote ^^ Meerkatwizard 16:45, 18 October 2021 (UTC)

Thank you, I appreciate your support! (Also, make sure to sign your posts with ~~~~ so we know who you are ;)) Katy Webb Icon vaulttec.png A better future, underground! 17:26, 18 October 2021 (UTC)


Hello, I do not think we have met yet. I was taking a tour of the fandom, ended up on the admin request page, it looks like you are going to win by quite a landslide. That being the case I just wanted to swing by and say hi and perhaps start the brown nosing early in the hopes that perhaps one day I too can bask in your future splendor. I would have voted for you but I figured I am too much of a newbie to have a valid vote in the matter.

Good luck with the job, and I look forward to arguing with you about who was right and who was wrong in future forum disputes lol

Thank you, I really appreciate the support! And yeah, unfortunately my vote started before you made your account, so your vote would be disqualified. You're welcome to vote on any forums in the future, however, and if you see one that seems important to you and need some assistance, let me know! I will help you cast your vote :) Katy Webb Icon vaulttec.png A better future, underground! 13:09, 21 October 2021 (UTC)
