Re:Youtube Player Edit

Hey Sigmund Fraud! First off thanks for using my guide! I put a lot of hard work into and I'm glad people use it. Now as per your question of what the top parameter should be set at, if you are placing it the very top of your userpage it really doesn't matter what you set this parameter to. However personally I set mine to 5px as it gives just a small enough space so that it's not too noticeable, yet is still visually pleasing. Hope that answers your question, and feel free to message me about any other concerns you may have. Best of luck! --The Old World Relics (talk/blog/contributions) 18:29, January 28, 2014 (UTC)

Memorial VoteEdit

I have reopened the memorial vote. I have removed all votes, and all comments due to the unpleasantness and questions over what the vote was for. I have reframed it around the intention of the vote, and would ask that all participants read through my comments about removing the previous comments. This isn't directed at anyone, this just a message I'm sending all participants. This is a recording. Agent c (talk) 18:18, August 11, 2015 (UTC)

Fallout Shelter weaponsEdit

You can remove the "The Fallout Shelter weapon X is based off of this weapon" on the Fallout 3 weapon pages. They're already linked with the for template at the top and that's enough. You can do the same on the Fallout Shelter weapon pages. Just use the for template; it doesn't have to be mentioned again in notes or behind the scenes.

I'll check the others, since I know Arcade and ED-E do not have the years. Was confused by the fact that yes, the game is 2281, but the companions (except for Cass) have been there ostensibly longer than The Courier/start of the game. Looking at it now, I wouldn't have reverted the first edit if I'd had the fortune to check Cass and Rex instead of Arcade and ED-E. ~The Crystal Crow~ 01:01, May 6, 2016 (UTC)

Why is everything else Loren Ipsum Dolor but Headline 2 is Test

Good question, I'm glad you asked - well not really.

Today's task was to create a template that can be used to simplfy pulling a blog onto that page. At the time you saw it, that template's entire content was the word "test". It is now no longer just "test" but actually does what its supposed to... Well, That bit at least. Now I work on the rest.


I'm not gonna be around much this weekend but i will make sure to check your edit history to ensure you got a handle on editing policy. In the meantime, you can read my blog on patrolling User blog:The Gunny/Admin talk - Patrolling and rollback. I will let you know probably on monday. The Gunny  UserGunny chevrons 19:43, June 24, 2016 (UTC)

Wiki's chat is down. Edit

I'd figure you'd know what to do about it and get it into whoever's hands, I'm trying my luck in CC. My wiki's chat works, so, I guess, if you want direct people there? NOTE: Elderscrolls wiki is down too, also checked GTA Wiki. So.... Yeah. It's a big thing. TAOA 00:03, June 26, 2016 (UTC)

Fort Constantine - LocationEdit

Fort Constantine is literally right next door to the Train Tunnel.. if you're going to mention that it's east of Raven Rock then I think the tunnel should be mentioned somehow as well. If this is related to the fact that it's only mentioned on this page, fine, but seems odd.

NomadMC (talk) 01:25, October 29, 2016 (UTC)

Chems page edit Edit

Hi Sigmund Fraud!

I was just wondering as to your reasoning behind undoing my edits to the Chems page. I noticed that your edit summary said it removed much but added little quality wise, but I am unsure as to what that exactly means. Do you mean it removed text? If this is the case, I can assure you I did not in fact "remove much" of anything from the article, but simply moved the paragraph about the Great Khans down one paragraph. Since the page was about chems in general, I thought adding a brief mention of pre-war chems in the "Background" section would be beneficial as an easy way for a reader to the site to hear brief lore-based in-universe info about various pre-war drugs and get an idea of the overall attitude towards them in pre-war society. I also added a related image I felt improved the overall article quality and aesthetic appeal, and also said something about pre-war society. Additionally, the only other change I made was mentioning how the term 'chems' was both a pre- and post-war slang term for drugs, as according to one issue of the Massachusetts Surgical Journal, the term 'chems' is clearly used in a pre-war publication, among other sources.

I do not mean to seem rude or offensive, nor do I intend to be insulting your intelligence in anyway whatsoever. I merely appreciate the Fallout universe and wish to make the site better for the many readers that view it.

Thank-you for your time, — 4546B (talk) 02:10, November 28, 2016 (UTC)

RE: Vault-Tec Rep edits Edit

"That's not what chronologically means"

I realize what you mean, but I think you're misunderstanding why I removed that (I admit I had a hard time thinking up how to phrase it in enough words to fit the edit description). Specifying that 220+ is his "chronological" age implies that his actual age is a separate factor. I mean, technically anyone's age is their "chronological age," but in the context of a series that has repeatedly featured characters being frozen in time for centuries only to emerge later, it bears kind of a different meaning. At least IMO.--DirtyBlue929 (talk) 06:52, December 19, 2016 (UTC)

Merry Christmas and (a bit too early to wish it already, but I'll do it already anyway) a Happy New Year!Edit

I would like to use the Christmas/New Year-wishes-tradition, to thank those around me who kept this wikia and daily life more fun for me during the past year. Everything just seems so normal and evident that we are here almost every day, yet it's very worthwhile to consider for a moment how wonderful it is to have people like you around me, making editing and being on chat a lot more enjoyable. I would also like to use this opportunity to wish a happy and healthy new year for you and everyone around you who is dear to you. I hope you'll have a great and healthy new year in which all your wishes may come true! - Greets Peace'n Hugs (talk) (blog) 02:28, December 24, 2016 (UTC)

That was my bad, didn't read it fully. Edit

Thanks, normally I read articles fully before editing them. However Vault 19's page does have a few unnecessary commas. I won't touch it, I'll leave that to someone who's edited a lot more than I have. Rebel427 (talk) 19:50, Jan 28, 2017.


Discord chat ? What is this thing ?

References Edit

I've just been going through the Fallout 4 Characters and picked up Janowski to have a look through for referencing. It is already referenced once at the end, for full contents of the Discarded ArcJet worklog, but it can be broken down into individual references from the page like so. Are we better off leaving it as the single generic reference or breaking it down into the more specific entities, even though we are citing the same source? Sakaratte (talk) 21:31, March 21, 2017 (UTC)

Think you're right to be honest, with the source being so short and the article itself being based entirely off the single source i would essentially be copying the majority of the log. I've broken it down for longwr sources in the past to make for quick referencing, but in this scenario the one reference should be enough. Sakaratte (talk) 08:03, March 22, 2017 (UTC)

Liberty Prime Edit

I made that edit to Liberty Prime's page just now. If that violated the rules, then I apologize. Just clarifying that it wasn't meant as vandalism. 03:07, June 2, 2017 (UTC)Guy Who Edited The Thing

Admin talk blogEdit

Please see User blog:The Gunny/Admin talk - Discussions moderation for a few site wide changes wikia has made as well as some details on discussions moderating. I will be opening a discussions topic in the next day or so with the intent to better introduce all of our site moderation team to the users there (most of them have no idea who most of us are). When that topic goes live, I will leave another talk page message for you asking that you navigate to the topic to introduce yourself and interact a bit with users there. I feel this is very important and a problem we need to fix. The Gunny  UserGunny chevrons 16:45, July 2, 2017 (UTC)

I plan on making that discussions topic tomorrow finally, around noonish my time. I plan on introducing the rest of the admin/mod team who the discussions users don't know very well. I am going to do it in a kinda AMA format, and I'll start by explaining who I am and what I do here. I would really appreciate it if any admins/mods who don't currently spend a lot of time there to chime in. I really feel this is important.  The Gunny  UserGunny chevrons 01:34, July 8, 2017 (UTC)

Edit WarringEdit

Howdy there, Sigmund Fraud. Seems you were involved in an edit war. Next time something like this pops up, grab an admin. We've got procedures for these things.

Richie9999 (talk) 01:47, July 10, 2017 (UTC)


I do agree with you about rights holders and language, it's not the most professional thing to be doing and I do recall catching it off him when I was first starting. It can be off putting.

I'll try and catch Gunny later about it as there was a discussion between another admin and a crat about his language this year. I can emphasise with Mara being frustrated with Papi, staff have been telling the same thing repeatedly about edit warring for over 6 months now. That said it doesn't excuse him from professional conduct. Sakaratte - Talk to the catmin 08:11, July 10, 2017 (UTC)

Soft blocks Edit

I have raised a forum to discuss adding the option of soft blocks as an alternative to hard blocks and extend the admin toolset for more flexibity in handling minor breaks in rules and guidelines. Can you read through the forum and give your input. Sakaratte - Talk to the catmin 20:40, August 7, 2017 (UTC)

Wikia's forced addition of videos to the wikiEdit

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.

Thank you for your consideration. Agent c (talk) 21:11, September 7, 2017 (UTC)

Hello, this is just a quick message to let you know a fourth question has been added based on the current feedback, especially from those who voted for removing the videos. Sakaratte - Talk to the catmin 19:54, September 10, 2017 (UTC)


No hard feelings about your vote, but:

I have no "bias" against Wikia. I'd rather go back to last week where I was a happy member of the community council and occasional contributor to the fandom news service. I was the one who actually worked to open up commuication links with the Wikia Gaming team before they moved on.

Out of everyone who has had discussions with wikia in the months leading up to this, I was arguably the most positive, although admittedly still broadly negative, I was happy to work with them to guide through the voting process for approval from the community, and potentially vote for such a thing if and when they showed they could make a video that would get over the quality threshold that was in question every other time we rejected video on this wiki.

As for my vote to actually do something. Unless the wiki is prepared to give me some sort of other leverage - such as a willingness to take action, or a willingness to move its position away from absolutism on video, then I, or anyone who might replace me, will have our hands hands tied. It will be the shortest negotiation in history whether it is me, you, or anyone else. Agent c (talk) 18:59, September 10, 2017 (UTC)

It's a bit of a special case. The talking head was in development but cut halfway, when Killap restored it we decided to include it. When a voice was added I decided to add that as well, with a note about it not being original. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 15:39, November 27, 2017 (UTC)

Discord investigationEdit

Hi Fraud, I am investigating an incident that occurred in Discord earlier today with a view to determine if action should be taken against you under the Administration Conduct Policy following the moderation action taken against Hades. Result of this investigation can include the charges being dismissed, summary action, or calling of a board.

You're not required to cooperate if you do not choose to, and additionally have the right of skipping over this process and moving to a rights removal request vote. Additionally, should you prefer I am happy to call for a board to investigate in my place.

I have reviewed the logs, and would appreciate it if you could answer the following questions on my talk page at your earliest convenience.

  1. What was your intention in posting the finger emoji?
  2. Had you seen the notice from Saka to Hades “Do it and I’ll kick you?”
  3. Did you disagree with this call? If so, why did you choose this path of action and not post your concerns to the Security Desk room?
  4. Do you believe you either enabled, or encouraged Hades to engage in the act that eventually got him kicked?
  5. But for your action today, do you believe Hades would have done what he did?
  6. Do you believe your actions resulted in Saka’s authority being undermined?
  7. Do you believe, if a non moderator had done what you did, would administrative action be necessary? If so, what action?
  8. Do you believe you demonstrated appropriate behaviour from a moderator today? If not, what do you believe the result of this investigation should be?

I look forward to your response. Agent c (talk) 21:11, December 18, 2017 (UTC)



it is my determination that your actions today did not meet the standards that we require of moderator staff.

The Chat Moderator position is not simply a decorative ornament. You are expected to undertake your duties and uphold a certain level of professionalism when holding this office.

On this wiki, as an office holder, you are required to apply the rules of the wiki, not be "Chaotic Good". If you want to use D&D Alignment terms You can be Lawful neutral, or lawful good, your choice - but its your job to enforce and apply the rules that exist - even if you don't agree with them.

If you don't want to apply the rules as written, then perhaps you need to reconsider your position.

If you don't like the rules, you know the process to begin to change them.

I am concerned that your actions may have had the potential to encourage someone to break the rules. We cannot be in the position of entrapping or pushing people to break the rules. If this was unintentional, then you need to apply more thought to your choices before intervening when a moderator is taking action.

If you do not agree with an action, do so in a professional, polite manner, in the appropriate space. However, I cannot see how a warning, and then a kick for not following the warning could be seen as "too harsh".

Following the advice of those present, I have decided that no further action is appropriate at this time. However, this should be taken as formal warning.

As I mentioned before, as a moderator you are expected to apply the rules and uphold a certain level of professionalism. Failure to do so may see further action taken. Agent c (talk) 22:34, December 18, 2017 (UTC)

Possible change to chat mod requirements Edit

Hi Sig,

As the only Chat moderator remaining I wanted your input. We are looking to try and bolster moderator numbers a little and the biggest barrier we can think of is the edit count. We want to keep proof of competency, but do you know of an alternate way we can do that? Sakaratte - Talk to the catmin 00:10, January 1, 2018 (UTC)

Sorry for taking so long to get back to you, wanted to mull it over a little.
We do still want chat moderators who can edit, the discussion we had was on how relevant the need for it to be in mainspace is. Chat mod's need to have a tie to the wiki, letting any old Joe run is always a bad idea. From what I've read and been told, the point of the mainspace edit requirement, was to show basic competency if questions came their way. With the editorial bullpen now having someone in it with plenty of experience in it most of the time, the complex stuff has coverage throughout the day.
As for do people want to be chat mod, there are one or two people that do, which demonstrate edit competency, but not in the right places (for example, JBour [who still needs to go some way to reach basic competency]).
As for the kick on Zeronelite earlier, I do feel I was a little pre-emptive on the kick, after looking back when I had more time. I've said as much to him. Sakaratte - Talk to the catmin 19:42, January 3, 2018 (UTC)

Character affinityEdit

Apologies for the generic message.

This forum was raised almost a week ago to tweak article guidelines so we could get companion reactions added into the layout guidelines with the hope of achieving a consensus rather than a vote.

Nukapedia and Fandom/Wikia talksEdit


Apologies for the impersonal nature of this message, as I'm relaying the same thing to admins and people who have previously expressed a view on featured video. Forgive me if I tell you some things you already know.

We have a call scheduled with Wikia this Friday. We need your input - and the input from as many others as possible. We're hoping to settle once and for all what our relationship is, if it can be salvaged, and what the future should be, as until we settle these featured video can't be settled.

Please, have a look at this forum and tell us what you think.

In addition to looking at our own future hosting option, we've also been in talks with other hosts. Included in these is Gamepedia/Curse. We have an ongoing dialogue with them, and if you have any questions about a possible unification to the vault, please do let me know and I'll relay any similar response we've had, and if your question is a first, I'll ask the question.

Thanks again. Remember, War never changes. Agent c (talk) 21:05, July 2, 2018 (UTC)

I thought about trying to just stay for the wiki side, despite my misgivings with Wikia, the Curse guys like Mr Woodhouse (especially mr woodhouse) are much better to work with (sadly the marketing idiots like Brandon still appear to be running the show).

The thing is Fraud, is that there is not two sides to the wiki.

The social side exists to sustain the wiki, and In turn the Wiki brings people into the social side. You can no more cut off one than you can cut off one side of a coin - your coin will always have 2 sides. I’ve said this longer than those who currently claim to represent the social side have been in it.

Where there has been a conflict, the social side has always had to give way. It’s a wiki with a chat room, not a chat room with a wiki we said.

Well now the trolls in the chat room, not content with their own clubhouse, want the wikis chat room. They want the Nukapedia name on their chatroom, but no other links or responsibility to the name.

Too many moderation/admin are either afraid to deal with their trolling, quietly supportive of their trolling, or at least in one case, actively encouraging and supporting it.

And as I said before the idea that these can somehow be separated is a false one.

I try to think why I should spend my time going back to trying to rebuild the reputation of this place, and I just can’t think of a reason. We have too many malcontents who think the place exists just for them, and I can’t have faith in my fellow staff members to back me up in cleaning up the place.

I can only hope, when starfield comes, you and some of the other good ones choose to follow me in a new beginning. Where we can do things right from day 1, with the experience we’ve gained here. Agent c (talk) 11:29, March 26, 2019 (UTC)
