Location editsEdit

All your edits are fantastic, thank you for taking the time to fix up all the real-world info on those location pages. Devastating DaveZIP ZAP RAP 06:22, November 12, 2019 (UTC)

Impressive, your work and visiting the notable FNV locations! You will be our best source for the real world references, I believe. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 22:21, November 12, 2019 (UTC)
You're welcome. It really shows your dedication to it! I remember back in the day, around 2011, someone else did more or less the same and posted it in the blog. Not as extensive as you though, just the area in and directly around New Vegas. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 22:31, November 12, 2019 (UTC)

ReferencesEdit

Please be mindful of references when editing the pages. The source material is quoted verbatim, including any spelling and grammar errors. Great Mara (talk) 16:43, February 7, 2020 (UTC)

I saw your note and appreciate the guidance, in both this regard and others in the past. I will make sure to do so moving forward. Kdarrow (talk) 16:51, February 7, 2020 (UTC)

Mountain SpringsEdit

That's ok. You would have to click on the triangle next to Mount Bell Springs's Edit button, choose Rename and then you would move the history of the page with it. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 20:55, February 11, 2020 (UTC)

On Devil Peak you mean? That's good to hear. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 23:51, February 11, 2020 (UTC)

Regarding your Vault 11 and Boulder City editsEdit

Hello, I am commenting here today to raise a complaint on the editorial style in which you posses and have utilized to edit the pages described upon in the titular articles. I disagree with the reasoning of the Boulder City real world background information simply being described to as "superfluous", and the changing of wording to be increasingly "clarified" in the Vault 11 and Boulder City articles. To put it simply, to one such as myself, it seems as though it is being simplified for little to no reason rather than sheer removal. Whilst my editing style prefers the addition of information to articles, I am usually not opposed to the removal of information so long as it is appropriate, and improves the article rather than acting as a detriment to it. However, as with the reason I am contacting you here now, that is not the case in these several instances. For example, the removal of the limestone supply quotation and second real life paragraph on the Boulder City page removed key elements to the town's background and present state. The Vault 11 removal of the second section and editing out key events in exchange for simplistic paraphrases and minor informative sentence structure also serve as a detriment rather than an improvement. While I urge you not to see this as a berating of your distinctive edits, which adhere to wiki policy in very skillful ways, I also would like you to go about them in a more acceptable manner in the future. Sincerely, JCB2077 (talk) 22:37, February 11, 2020 (UTC)

I read and appreciate your comments regarding the editing style I use. Even feedback that is negative is important to me, so I can improve and in turn, improve the work I am doing on the location entries. I want to assure you that I spend a great deal of time thinking about the best way to convey information, writing and re-writing, researching, and working diligently to strike a balance between was is required and what can be trimmed for clarity. I do truly care about the integrity of my work and the impact it has on the improvement of the collective information. That being said, I can and will admit that I err on the side of removal, which upon reading your comments, is something I realize I need to change. Sometimes I struggle with what information coming from "the real world" is necessary to include for "in-game", especially in cases where I can not find evidence to suggest they were one and the same. Please accept my apologies. You will see my work in the future reflect a more restrained approach, and I appreciate you calling my attention to the need for me to do so. - Kdarrow (talk) 23:57, February 11, 2020 (UTC)

Character article layout and notes sectionsEdit

Hiya, just wanted to let you know about the wiki's Article layout guideline if you haven't checked it out already. In general we like to try and keep our Notes sections as non-existent small as possible, so just looking for example at your edits to Ricky, changing "Other interactions" to "Notes" is not ideal. Also the sentence describing Ricky's role in the quest should stay in that section. However, you're right that the interactions needed to be cleaned up a little, so I've done a bit of that. :)

Hopefully s'all clear (as mud, I'm sure) but always feel free to hit me up on my talkpage if you have any questions. Happy editing! --L84tea Tea kettleWould you like a cup of tea? 09:38, February 18, 2020 (UTC)

Yeah the Article Layout policy docs helped me out a lot when I first started and even now I still refer to them really frequently because honestly who can remember where the Notes and Bugs sections go in relation to each other. Not I, that's for sure. xD --L84tea Tea kettleWould you like a cup of tea? 12:43, February 19, 2020 (UTC)

Hello Edit

Me interesting read your edits, thanks you. But here HUD (in the center, under the key).--ExplorerSmaily (talk) 10:16, February 20, 2020 (UTC)

Oh gosh, you are right. Sorry about that. I fixed it. And thank you for your kind words! -Kdarrow (talk) 18:00, February 20, 2020 (UTC)

MapsEdit

Hi Kate. First of all, thanks for your work here. I have a slight remark on the images you added here today. Most of the images are good of quality, some are less of quality, like Skill magazine suite 300.jpg. Set your screen settings to the highest resolution if you can and might as well make it 1920 by 1080. I replaced most of your map markers. You should leave out the square marker and clear the "fog of war" (tfow) before you make a screenshot (done so on the Aerotech Office Park page). Also set your gamehour to 0, midnight, then you will have the best contrast. We don't need local maps of very small locations, like Cassidy Caravans wreckage or Grub n' Gulp rest stop. It doesn't really add to the page in my opinion. Only local maps of larger locations, like Camp Searchlight, Nipton of Goodsprings are good to have.

Greetings! Good to hear from you, and thank you. These tips are very helpful, I appreciate your taking time to explain it to me clearly. I have removed the smaller locations from my "to-do" list and will use these techniques in future photos. Thank you again! -Kate (Kdarrow (talk) 19:30, February 21, 2020 (UTC))

Fire axeEdit

You're right, it's on there. Maybe it's been put there in the beginning stages of the game, not knowing yet how many you can find in the game, not sure. I've removed the axe now. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 18:01, February 24, 2020 (UTC)
