Infobox

I see you collapsed the technical data section of the infobox location again. These kind of changes to important infoboxes first need to be discussed with admins first. It has stood like this since the existence of the template. I'll leave it for now but I plan to let it come back in the Meeting of the Minds. Jspoel Speech Jspoel.png 16:07, 13 April 2021 (UTC)

I've restored the technical data section of the location infobox to be unfolded. There's a lot of information there you can do handy things with like the map name or using it for console commands. I've spent many hours collecting and placing all that data and I don't want it buried for no good reason. Jspoel Speech Jspoel.png 20:14, 13 April 2021 (UTC)

Infobox creature Fo76

A reminder, we have a Fallout Wiki:Templates and Fallout Wiki:Template modernisation where from now on you should place new and updates templates on the list, like your FO76 creature templates. This template needs reviewing. Jspoel Speech Jspoel.png 13:10, 19 April 2021 (UTC)

Special tool for later

That cell has a specific function that isn't needed at the time. Unless you're planning on moving the page to another page title where it is necessary, it is pointless bulk and the fat needs to be trimmed. Great Mara (talk) 03:46, 20 April 2021 (UTC)

You're going to stretch the page out on mobile? Mobile browsers don't support the tabber function. There will be more scrolling than the pages already need afterward. Great Mara (talk) 05:48, 20 April 2021 (UTC)

Infobox weapon

If you have a template in the works, you should add it to the Fallout Wiki:Templates page, like the Template:Infobox weapon FO76 template, and add the progress there and if it's active to go live. Also plz use edit summaries during development so others keep in the loop of what's going on. Jspoel Speech Jspoel.png 15:16, 28 April 2021 (UTC)

The infobox image of this template is not centered, can you take a look at that? See Night Light. Jspoel Speech Jspoel.png 17:02, 28 April 2021 (UTC)

Chairman Cheng

Please do not insert speculation or personal theories into articles, regardless of whether they are commented out or not. Unless you have a source that definitively states Chairman Cheng is an "Uncle Sam" type personification, it should not be on the China article in any form. If commenting out theories was okay, then whenever you wanted to edit a page, the editor would be clogged with all sorts of commented out headcanon. Personally, I think the theory is likely, but until we have a source establishing that, do not add it to the mainspace even if you comment it out. AllYourFavorites! 14:10, 2 May 2021 (UTC)

Harassment

As requested, I'd like to ask you why you considered it to be a good idea to send another user unsolicited pornographic images, despite their clear declaration they are not interested and they are unwanted. This is old, but this behavior is really not something that we encourage as admins. Тагазиэль 14:43, 5 May 2021 (UTC) And just to be clear, this is to make sure you don't do something that will get you banned. UCX will need your expertise to maintain the templates, especially the tabs, which will misbehave. So just stay safe, OK? Тагазиэль

Thank you for the help

Thanks for the badge and for the tip on those pages to help with doing the perks. I need as much help as I can get. Let me know if you see anything I do wrong or if I should do anything different. Appreciate the message and help. Hellotalos (talk) 09:27, 7 May 2021 (UTC)

Mirelurks

Why did you move Fallout 76 mirelurk subspecies pages to own pages? Jspoel Speech Jspoel.png 15:05, 7 May 2021 (UTC)

Doxing accusation

Do not use edit summaries to accuse other editors of doxing as you did on The Five Stars, especially if they had good intentions by adding that sort of information to a page. Doxing is a serious accusation and not something to be thrown around lightly. At the very least, it is an extreme assumption of bad faith, and at worst, it is a false accusation of an actual crime. This sort of behavior should not come from a rights-holder, and considering your prior warning about harassment of other editors, the next time that something like this happens, action will be taken. AllYourFavorites! 05:58, 8 May 2021 (UTC)

I also recommend that you give NomadicNom a serious apology. AllYourFavorites! 06:17, 8 May 2021 (UTC)

Infobox location

I'd rather give my comment here. I'm not too happy to have to click on a tab to see a map marker image, it should be visible immediately. What's the reason for doing that? Maybe for mobile view, but you also need to look at the desktop viewability. And you have created tabs just to get an interior image and a map. That's not really much new information per tab, is it? What I do like is the map marker image tucked in neatly before the map marker name. Those are my thoughts for now. Maybe also ask AYF and Kdarrow, we need several pairs of veteran eyes for these kind of changes. Jspoel Speech Jspoel.png 20:00, 9 May 2021 (UTC)

Titles

Overseer is a generic title. They are only capitalized when directly preceding a name. It's no different from every other overseer in the series, including 76. Great Mara (talk) 22:10, 10 May 2021 (UTC)

Wikipedia doesn't always follow US grammar rules. Even Chicago Manual of Style recommends lowercase, along with the deck log referring to the captain I had to fill out for four years. https://www.grammarbook.com/blog/capitalization/when-to-capitalize-peoples-titles/ Great Mara (talk) 22:31, 10 May 2021 (UTC)

Editing disputes

Hey, Scribe

So there are a couple of things I want to go over with you, and we'll start with the Jacoren article. When you get the chance, please read over everything I messaged Mara over, and then I'd like for you two to get together, either on your personal talk-pages or the article's, and have an earnest discussion. If a solution can't be reached, a neutral mediator is always just a ping away.

Regarding the Psyker article, while Dave was not in the right to blatantly remove the split template without discussion first, you also were not in the right by reverting a revert since that constitutes edit-warring. If you would have approached an admin, they could have helped settle this matter instead, and that's something you should remember in any similar cases for the future. Since this is your first warning I'll consider this wrapped up for now, but please don't edit-war anymore. 寧靜 Fox.png 23:44, 10 May 2021 (UTC)

Style guide policy

I'm not sure if I'd have to retool my permissions to talk on Discord. It would be easier for me just to talk on here and more transparent since it involves wiki policy. So basically, we probably need to boil it down to a specific style guide to follow. Although, much to my annoyance, it seems the main Chicago Style guide site is now behind a paywall and can't easily be referenced directly. Great Mara (talk) 22:45, 11 May 2021 (UTC)

Thanks for stopping by!

Appreciate the gift. Also, I saw your post on the source forum. Still hoping hear from a few more folks before taking it to any sort of vote, but there's at least a vague notion of a general idea shaping up lol. Shame how some of that heated discord passion sometimes fizzles early. The Dyre Wolf (talk) 12:43, 12 May 2021 (UTC)
