Solid workEdit

Good job on pointing out Dead Sea's origins on that location page. I added the reference to it, so you can see how it looks. Some references you may add are on pages that don't already have a "references" section, so make sure to add that if it doesn't already exist (I only say so because I always forget). I appreciate your keen eye and contributions! Keep up the good work. -Kate (Kdarrow (talk) 15:24, March 18, 2020 (UTC))

Nuka-Cola KiwiEdit

Where is Nuka-Cola Kiwi mentioned? Needs a reference. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 22:13, March 26, 2020 (UTC)

behind the scenes issues Edit

you may have noticed that i have been undoing some of your edits, as you have said you have a problem with speculation but also saying things like, 'location X in the game is based off of location X in real life'. The Fallout series takes place in an ALTERNATE reality, not a completely made up one - therefore much of the locations will be the same in game and IRL, unless the name is changed in-game (far harbor to bar harbor for example) it is not really necessary to mention it in the BTS section.--Branebriar1930 (talk) 00:56, March 27, 2020 (UTC)

FOBOS2 mentioned onlyEdit

Don't add that mentioned only category. Unneeded. Really. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 16:57, April 21, 2020 (UTC)

Sorry. I had no idea you were editing what I was doing. I only get emails, without any notifications. (New California Ahoy (talk))

Dead MoneyEdit

I copied the quote verbatim directly from the dialogue files and the ogg matches it to a T. Great Mara (talk) 14:22, April 24, 2020 (UTC)

wrong congo Edit

you created a page for the Congo country. yet you called it the democratic republic of Congo. every reference refers to simply 'the Congo' and im not sure if you know but the Congo and the democratic republic of the Congo are two separate countries. im changing that page to reflect the Congo instead of the DRC, unless you can find evidence that it is in fact the DRC that is mentioned.--Branebriar1930 (talk) 23:24, May 3, 2020 (UTC)

You are correct, I assumed that the Congo was a reference to the DRC. However, there's no evidence to indicate that it refers to the RC, either. When people refer to the Congo, they usually mean the DRC. Honestly, I don't believe we have any information what so ever on the political structure of Africa, and both gained independence after the divergence, so nothing can be assumed. Its more likely a reference to Equatorial Middle Africa, home to some of the largest jungles in the world, which was traditionally known as the Congo.

removed refs Edit

hey i removed the references (on the pre war countries page) for the countries that have their own pages (such as the new pages you made for them) since that appears to be the format on the pre war countries page.--Branebriar1930 (talk) 14:17, May 5, 2020 (UTC)


The Book of Esther is part of both Judaism and the Old Testament in Christianity, this note is valid. Great Mara (talk) 20:03, May 9, 2020 (UTC)

I am well aware of the existence of the Book of Esther, but there's no indication that the weapon's name is a reference to it, nor does the story of queen Esther connect in any way to the weapon. Additionally, it is excluded from the challenge The Same Could Be Said of All Religious Weapons, which includes another GRA weapon Gehenna. I then went to the Discord, and both JCB and Dankalor agreed with me, so I removed it. (New California Ahoy (talk))


Well done on 500 edits my friend. And watch, this comment will look so outdated soon! -(Kdarrow (talk) 03:15, May 24, 2020 (UTC))

Thank you very much Kate. You just might be right. (New California Ahoy (talk) 04:32, May 24, 2020 (UTC))

'nam Edit

Hey so what are we going to do about Vietnam? Since we do not know how the war played out i was thinking it may just be safer to make north and south Vietnam separate countries with their own pages?--Branebriar1930 (talk) 17:10, May 28, 2020 (UTC)

I was wondering that as well. I think it's best to just leave it as one page, Vietnam, as that's the only mention we get. (New California Ahoy (talk) 17:13, May 28, 2020 (UTC))

Arabia is a region which encompassed more than just modern day Saudi Arabia, with other states in that area. even so we can only include the most modern incarnation of a country, which is why we do not include states like the roman empire or Persia.--Branebriar1930 (talk) 17:27, May 28, 2020 (UTC)

Why do you not think we should include the philippines?--Branebriar1930 (talk) 17:27, May 28, 2020 (UTC)

oh i see what you mean, because one of its islands already has its own page. Yes i do agree with you if we create a Philippines page we can just incorporate that info--Branebriar1930 (talk) 17:28, May 28, 2020 (UTC)

Exactly (New California Ahoy (talk) 17:32, May 28, 2020 (UTC))

Another thing, we can't make a page for Norway, because making a page because of a spoken language is against the content policy. Just don't want you to waste your time.


Name the style guide in American English that says this. Great Mara (talk) 20:19, May 28, 2020 (UTC)

Most excellentEdit

Solid work on spotting those locations and creating new pages for them. It is so funny that they are under our noses for so long unnoticed. Well, not anymore, thanks to you! As Paladin Danse constantly says ... "outstanding!" -Kate (Kdarrow (talk) 03:38, June 4, 2020 (UTC))

As always, thank you Kate. I still have plenty more left to do, and I'm sure I'll find many more in the future.(New California Ahoy (talk) 20:33, June 4, 2020 (UTC))

Patroller rightsEdit

You've showed some good activity these past few months, but giving you patroller rights at this point is too early for me. I've upgraded my personal terms for giving them, I need to see some more continued activity. I'd also like to see some more diversity your edits a bit, other than on country pages. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 19:27, June 8, 2020 (UTC)

new countries Edit

Hey i like what you are doing with the new countries but are you sure about Greenland? while it is an 'autonomous territory' it is not a country by itself. also the globes around the commonwealth are not reliable sources for country's geographical boundaries as they were based off of the real world. For example they do not show the soviet union as a single state, rather as Russia, Ukraine etc.

I recommend putting putting Greenland in brackets after Denmark.--Branebriar1930 (talk) 16:34, June 9, 2020 (UTC)

Expertise neededEdit

I came across the Consul page today, looks like a page that would benefit from your expertise. -(Kdarrow (talk) 01:51, June 15, 2020 (UTC))

I did help, and I appreciate you thinking of me, though I'm not quite sure why you did. (New California Ahoy (talk) 02:11, June 15, 2020 (UTC))

TVA Edit


I apologize for the delayed response - with the pandemic going around, I haven't been so active around here, but that's not really a good excuse for an aspiring mentee.

I see that you're interested in General & Technical Editing. If you'd like to start with GE, I can get back with you by next week with a training regiment, and I'd love to get to know you better and help acclimate you to our wiki. If you'd like to go ahead and get into the advanced stuff, we have a good number of other mentors that'd be able to help you get started; just let me know if that's your first preference, and I'll find you a good match.

Hope to hear from you soon, and happy editing! 寧靜 Fox 19:26, July 4, 2020 (UTC)

Be still my heartEdit

You came back to vote for me. That means so much. You are just the best and I already miss you a lot!! -Kate (Kdarrow (talk) 09:24, July 20, 2020 (UTC))

The Vault AcademyEdit

Alright, let's get this ball rolling!

So you've already signed onto the mentorship program, and pretty much all we need to do now is to assign you a mentor. Would you be okay with me picking you up for General Editing? I've also spoken to Kate, who has expressed an interest in getting you started on Technical Editing. Doesn't even necessarily have to be a choice - if you have the time and interest, we'd be willing to get you started on both in tandem.

In any case, I'll be looking forward to hearing back from you - happy editing! 寧靜 Fox 13:19, September 3, 2020 (UTC)

General Editing Program - Part 1:

Hello, and welcome to The Vault Academy! In this lesson plan, we will be going over General Editing, which is composed of basic yet essential etiquette regarding your editing and interactions with other editors here at Nukapedia.

Included below is a list of milestones that will need to be reached, which can be tackled in any order you wish. Every Friday there will be a progress report, where completed milestones will be gone over and checked off before moving onto the next part of the program. Your assigned mentor isn't just around to assign tasks; please do not hesitate to stay in consistent contact throughout the program, as strengthening your work relations with other editors is a crucial element to being a constructive editor.

Upon the completion of the General Editing Program, you will be awarded a certification of completion, which can be proudly displayed on your profile.

General Milestones

Welcome to The Vault Academy!

Welcome to General Editing Pt.I - I will be your mentor over the following program, and I hope you will find this both an educational and challenging experience. As you work through your milestones, remember that it's just as important to also have open communication with your mentor and other editors as often as possible.

There is no such thing as a stupid question, and I'll be here with you every step of the way to make sure that any you may have are thoroughly answered. There is of course my talk-page, but you may also contact me through our Discord server if that is more convenient for you.

This week we will be going over editing fundamentals and etiquette. Please pay special attention to the first milestone, as you'll need to be using sandboxes during your time at The Vault Academy, which your mentors will be using to assess and evaluate your progress through each lesson.

This will be part one of your General Editing program, in which there will be 4 total parts and then a final exam - Pt.II will be over bugs, categorization, and patience - Pt.III will be over user user interactions and forums - Pt.IV will be over research and peer-reviewing.

I'll be keeping an eye on your progress, and if you need any help at all, please please please do not hesitate to contact me, and we'll talk things through. Good luck, and happy editing! 寧靜 Fox 19:18, September 4, 2020 (UTC)

Friday Check-In Edit

Hey, hey!

It's Friday, so I wanted to drop in and see how you're doing with the program. Whenever you finish with your milestones, you can send me your sandbox(es) once you're ready, and I'll start working on a progress report for you before we move onto the next lesson.

Otherwise, if you need any help at all, I'd love to try and answer any questions that you have! Happy editing, and keep up the amazing work. 寧靜 Fox 15:49, September 11, 2020 (UTC)
