Hello. Thank you for your opinion on my story, Mr.Fallout. I always love when people help me to improve, Atom knows I need it. Now with Hancock I know he would be pretty pissed but I'm trying to appeal to his carefree junkie nature. But I will take your advice into careful consideration and use it in chapter five.

Chat and endorsement
I'll have a chat up with poeple later on today to see how you handled your role last night, like I said before I ran off, it was a test of your abilities and I want to make sure my endorsement is sound. I broken your application up into 3 paragraphs btw, just to make it easier to read for other users. You might want to put more focus on discussions and less on the wiki, after all it is discussions you will be moderating. Sakaratte - Talk to the catmin 12:33, August 13, 2017 (UTC)
Wikia's forced addition of videos to the wiki
Hello, This is a message to all listed active members of the leadership team, so please accept my apologies if this seems a little impersonal.
As you may be aware, Wikia/Fandom have added a number of videos to pages on the wiki that they have self authored. Although the consensus view so far seems to be that these are not to our standards, I encourage you to view these for yourself and make up your own mind.
You can find a link to all the videos, and a petition I would like you to consider here. If you believe that these videos do not meet our standards, detract from the wiki, and should be removed, I encourage you to vote yes on this petition. You are of course welcome to vote no if you do not believe this is the case.
Video Negotiated Settlement
Thank you very much for your vote on the petition. We have had talks with Wikia/Fandom, and a settlement has been proposed. I encourage you to review it and have your say here. Agent c (talk) 20:37, September 8, 2017 (UTC)
Thank you for participating in the video forums so far.
In order to work out where to go from here, I've created another forum asking the community where our "Red line" is, and whether or not I should continue to be the point person on this.
All Hands Meeting
Okay, I think its clear that going ahead with a meeting is a good idea. At this stage I would like to open the floor to agenda items. We have the following things to discuss.
- An update on any negotiations, and other actions
- Possible action to progress our case further whilst staying on network
- Possible engagement with Wikia on video in line with the proposed deal- if we should participate and whom that contact person should be.
- Possible alternatives if the situation cannot be resolved.
Please let me know if you want anything added to the agenda here
I'll be asking a number of people to speak on certain issues, but as always there will be plenty of room for discussion.
I propose that the meeting be held at 3pm North American Eastern Time on Sunday 24 September, this should be 8pm in London, 9pm Central European time, and Midday North American Western. If there are any objections please note them below and we'll look into alternative scheduling, the more objections the harder we look for a new time.
We have arranged facilities for the meeting, it will be held online. It is open to all persons who have participated in any of the video discussion threads up to today, except those employed by Fandom/Wikia inc (as this is the Community's meeting), or have been employed by them in the recent past.
Votes taken in this meeting will be taken as consensus view of the wiki, so everyone is encouraged to attend.
We have setup a discord server (Nukapedia's Fallout Shelter) located here. It is mobile friendly (via an app) and is very flexible.
Although everyone is welcome in our social space (The-Common-Room), only persons who meet the above criteria will be admitted to The-Town-Hall (where the meeting will be located). You may be asked to verify your account before this access is granted. Agent c (talk) 21:53, September 11, 2017 (UTC)
I know you :) You're one of our newest Discussions Moderators! But I have to admit, when you posted the request, I hadn't really noticed your name before that. But looking at your Discussions edit count I had faith you'd make it. Jspoel 22:59, September 30, 2017 (UTC)
Patroller to Content Moderator
Thank you for voting on my adminship request earlier! I'd like to inform you that I have changed my request from a Content Moderator request into an Administrator request. If you do not support my updated request, or are unsure of whether to support it, please be sure to update or even remove your vote.
- FDekker talk 17:10, October 15, 2017 (UTC)
As discussion on Content moderators stalled last month and there was plenty of input, I have now raised a forum with a policy to vote on based upon the comments. When you have a moment, can you take a look at cast your votes? Sakaratte - Talk to the catmin 23:47, November 11, 2017 (UTC)
So you can get on via PC
Hello Courier. This reaction is a bit delayed as I wanted to consult with an admin first. Consider this message a formal warning for posting content with gratuitous racial slurs on Discord. The next instance might result into a ban. We can accept the thoughtlessness. We all have brainfarts. We can't accept the lack of personal responsibility, especially from a moderator. I hope you understand, and I hope this situation doesn't repeat itself. --NukaTurtle (talk) 06:49, December 1, 2017 (UTC)
I've dropped your self imposed ban from 60 years and taken your rights off you for a week, just for misusing them to ban yourself. I don't think there is much else I can do considering the situation at hand. Although the only person affected by your actions was yourself and could easily have been undone by yourself at any time, it is a misuse of the tools.
I know you aren't happy about the warning from yesterday. All it would have taken at the time was to say "shit didn't cross my mind that was on there, sorry" and the whole thing would have been dropped with nothing happening at all.
Take a walk, get it out your system and breathe. This isn't the end of the world and things can be put right. This isn't like you and that worries me. If you need to talk, you know where I am. Sakaratte - Talk to the catmin 07:30, December 2, 2017 (UTC)
Hey, it's me. I wanted to know if you were okay. I heard what happened. So you made a mistake, everyone makes those. Don't beat yourself up over it. I'm so worried about you right now, you aren't answering anyone, you're calling yourself horrible things... please let me know you're okay. Or at least just answer me. Me and Saka are concerned about you (just read all this in my talk page: http://fallout.wikia.com/wiki/User_talk:UrbanAnge1#Tertiary_break) as are a lot of people. I hope you'll actually read this message so you know how much you mean to us. --UrbanAnge1 (talk) 10:12, December 2, 2017 (UTC)
I just saw your vote on JBour's request, sounded like a resignation. At present you will be getting your rights back Saturday morning, but I think a confirmation of if you want them back or not in advance might be best.
Hi Courier, I know I mentioned this before, but can you not change the content of the deleted posts from the spamvertisers? We use the information ourselves to help limit the amount of spam we get. Sakaratte - Talk to the catmin 13:27, December 14, 2017 (UTC)
Heya Courier. Just wanted to let you know that I'll be gone for the next week-ish. Letting you know in case anybody is wondering where I am if anyone wants to continue the RP. Skysteam (talk) 19:19, December 18, 2017 (UTC)
Hey Courier, you were kicked today for continuing to discuss a matter on which rule 9 had been called. When rule 9 is called, one is to move on from the subject immediately.
Additionally, I'd like to address the way you responded to NukaTurtle's accusation towards you. As a moderator, you have to be able to remain cool at all times, and if not you must moderate yourself by for example leaving the discord for a while. You had all the right to defend yourself, but it should be done without continuously using cuss words. You have lost your temper earlier too, and this is not acceptable for a member of staff. You need to work on this, if not your ability as a member of staff may be questioned. DisgustingWastelander (talk) 18:54, January 31, 2018 (UTC)
You have been blocked for 3 days for insulting other users. Calling all PS players assholes is in essence calling all PS players on the wiki and discord assholes. Sakaratte - Talk to the catmin 08:59, June 7, 2018 (UTC)
- Begrudgingly this is the second ban I'm having to apply in a month. As you well know telling someone "fuck you too" is an insult. Sakaratte - Talk to the catmin 17:49, June 11, 2018 (UTC)
Hey, Cor, the Patron cards are now ready!
I have a basic template for you to play around with, so feel free to work with what you've got. If you need help playing around with it, just let me know. You can find it here. PL should be released this weekend, and I'll make sure to have your card added to it. 寧靜 23:05, February 11, 2019 (UTC)
You know what post (s) I'm reffering to, but you or someone on staff should always let someone know why their post was deleted[unless otherwise obvious which is not the case) I know you're upset, but that shouldn't warrant sudden change on the wiki. With love; Silent (˶◡‿◡)(´ ❥ `) (talk) 19:19, April 30, 2019 (UTC) P.S., ya mum
Went ahead and copied a patron card example to your sandbox.
Just fill it out at your earliest convenience, send it to my talk-page, and we can start figuring out how to get ya added to the Patrons' Lounge. If you need any help, since I'm not sure yet what you're wanting to do, let me know and we can flesh out the smaller details. 寧靜 17:33, May 3, 2019 (UTC)
Then why does it appear as a radio beacon on the pip boy?
Call to Action
There have been quite a few sweeping changes to the wiki lately, and now that the Unified Community Platform has come to fruition here, it's more important than ever for our leadership to get together and inspire innovative changes for the next generation of wiki editors/readers.
As someone who is somewhat inactive myself, I understand how life gets in the way, and I'll fully understand if many of you are unable to commit, but I'd still like to try my best to appeal to you all in getting involved in a few of our currently active projects; especially so since rights-users participating in our discussions/votes are at an all-time low, and many internal decisions are having to be made between a select few users, which is bad for building consensus on important matters.
As such, I would like to ask for you all to look into two of our most important projects right now, as it would mean a lot to me and the wiki if as many people as possible got directly involved in helping shape our future:
- The Vault Academy is a program for the training and acclimation of new and even veteran users, training them on how to get involved in the various facets of the wiki, as well as helping them build bonds with their fellow users. The program has kicked off in a big way, and we are in desperate need of more rights-users to sign on as mentors, as we're having to share multiple mentees between each mentor. If you're looking to leave your mark on the wiki, then signing onto TVA program will be your way of doing so.
- As a minor update, we now have a new plagiarism point of contact. Should you suspect plagiarized content is at play, please get into point with the user FDekker who will be the initial handler of all such cases going forward.
- We have an upcoming meeting of the minds coming up on the 20th of this month, and we need people to come forth and pitch their ideas for adapting to the recent UCP changes, and to possibly adopt some of the ideas that our new datamining friends have been pitching to us.
Thanks for your consideration, and I do hope to hear back from you all! Even if it is just some of you dropping by to check the place out and say a quick hello. 寧靜 14:12, 13 November 2020 (UTC)
