Re: Response

I do admit I was a bit too swift in making my assumptions about you - it's a defensiveness that comes with seeing homophobia perpetuated in much the same way so often. I took what I had seen at face value, but I have more insight now. I appreciate you taking the time to write out your response. It seems ultimately to me that it comes down a difference in personal opinion. To me, a succinct label - even a general one like LGBT - is important, especially in this age, where "queerbaiting", if you'll forgive the term, makes it difficult to differentiate between what is clear, unashamed representation, and what is just speculation and subtext that dance around the actual topic. As for the list, while I fully sympathize with your desire to not set us apart as a separate group, there is an undeniable difference - not in a sexuality itself, but in how, historically, it has been represented (or rather, not represented) in comparison to heterosexuality. I also believe a list like that does serve a strong and important purpose. There are projects such as the LGBTQ Video Game Archive that document this history, as well as many researches into the same subject. Crawling through the wiki page of every character and trying to draw conclusions from the sometimes vague relationship histories and dialogues is just not a practical way to get the information for something like this. To have a list that clearly shows these canonically LGBT characters allows the user to get a quick, objective summarization, and they are free to then read their pages should they want more information on this. I don't know that I can convince you to revert a decision you already seem quite set on, but I hope you will at least consider allowing similar edits to be made again.

Thank you for being so open-minded with this :) I'd be very happy to work on a page like that with you, it will be a great and much appreciated addition. I think a separate article is the right idea. You're welcome to go ahead with starting on it, since you have much more experience here than me, and I will try and help out wherever I can with the actual content of it.

Brahmicultural Barons

Should these two pages get merged somehow? The first page doesn't seem to include any information that the second one does not already have and none of its references mention agricultural barons separately from brahmin barons. I don't recall anything else from FNV that separately refers to agricultural (non-brahmin) barons, but I might have missed sources. Thought I'd bring it up with you since you know how to handle merges far better than I do, and you have an encyclopedic knowledge of FNV.

You can take over. I don't know how to do merges and I don't know if any of it requires admin tools, like deleting the old page or something. Sigmund Fraud 03:39, 11 February 2022 (UTC)

Update on merge project

Hey, sorry I have not been around as much, I got busy with school. Anyway, I wanted to let you know I have completed some more timeline merges, should be merged now through 2074. Thanks and take it easy. Hellotalos (talk) 22:36, 15 February 2022 (UTC)

Unused images

I had a suspicion some of them were used. I deleted them and then see if they show up in wantedfiles and restore those. Most of them did show up, though I didn't see the Erin Moses files there. Cutthroat camp did show up . Jspoel Speech Jspoel.png 21:56, 21 February 2022 (UTC)

Quick question

Why did you change Jen's and Rocco's infoboxes to exclude that they are Wastelanders characters? It's not the norm for the Wastelanders characters. Skorch (talk) 00:02, 3 March 2022 (UTC)

So you really want "Fallout 76" to show up in the infobox's Appearances section, correct? I edited Jen's infobox to test something and it seems to look decent, with "Fallout 76 / Wastelanders character" displayed at the top. How do you feel about it? Skorch (talk) 08:15, 3 March 2022 (UTC)
I'll work on editing the infoboxes then. I'm almost finished making sure every human character (post Wastelanders) has a quote as well. Not sure what major project I'll work on after, but I hope you can see about those infobox ages soon. Not trying to rush you or anything, I'd just love for the ages to show again. To be honest, I still don't think that "references required for parameter to show" idea is entirely needed, even if I see why you'd prefer it as a precautionary measure. I'm just used to doing things the arduous way myself, checking every single article, no bots for me. If you ever change your mind and think "Fawk it, I'll leave it to Skorch to handle it", just let me know. I'm still trying to figure out what's inside/outside the wiki's scope, the formatting, and seeing what's acceptable or not acceptable as part of a learning process to see what the wiki's standards are, since all of them are different.
I think I've already said my major ideas, like how GECK races aren't necessarily canon. Though I still think listing and being transparent about contradictions is, ultimately, better and healthier for the wiki and something that should be in the wiki's scope, like listing the weird contradiction between Raul's age on the site and PlayStation site. Or if a source said a character was born in Ireland and another said Scotland, the wiki should say "born in Ireland or Scotland" instead of eliminating it entirely. It prevents people from becoming confused in the future, imo. And I happen to like learning about contradictions, retcons and lore breaks myself.
Something that does sort of concern me a bit is how you tend to remove information on articles. Removing excess fluff and making things concise can be great, but I think you might be going a bit overboard. Like, I saw you removing some word-for-word plagiarism from the guide, which is totally understandable, but I think the far better route is to take the extra time and reword it, using a thesaurus. If you happen to notice plagiarism, you can create a list and pass it to me, and let me rewrite the information in a way which isn't plagiarism. It's something I'm absolutely willing to do.

Note on Deacon's page

There is a pretty confusing note regarding a creation club item on Deacon's page, which I'm not sure should be there. Could you please check it out? Branebriar1930 (talk) 01:16, 9 March 2022 (UTC)

New California (Region) page

why wipe it? it describes an integral region of the fallout universe. it seems hypocritical to wipe it when https://fallout.fandom.com/wiki/Capital_Wasteland and https://fallout.fandom.com/wiki/Mojave_Wasteland exist and provide the exact same purpose. it is completely unnecessary to remove it.

RE: Pitt

Look, I get it, you're revamping the wiki to focus on 1:1 accurate descriptions of in-game content, it's whatever. I'm not fuming about it or anything. When I come back (probably this summer) I'll rejoin the discord and discuss what I think should be re-added. It upset me a bit but I'm trying to stop caring so much about this wiki for various reasons; I'm only really planning to come back so I can resolve some unfinished business, like that character image project I never got around to doing because of personal life shit, before peaceing out again unless/until something else big comes up. --DirtyBlue929 (talk) 16:15, 30 March 2022 (UTC)
