Those four tilde (~) keys at the end are very important, and they sign your post, so I know who to respond to.

Thanks, Dyre

Hooray!

All done :) No worries at all. Look at how clean the page is now! Well before I post this, anyway :) -kdarrow Pickman heart.png take her for a spin! 04:49, August 31, 2020 (UTC)

Ah that sounds like a good idea. Memories of that first edit and all :) -kdarrow Pickman heart.png take her for a spin! 05:01, August 31, 2020 (UTC)

Mentorship Program

So after talking to User:Intrepid359, he's expressed an interest in joining up with The Vault Academy as a new mentee for the General Editing program, and has agreed to be taken under your tutelage. Should you accept this partnership, please note as such on TVA page, and get into contact with your new mentee for their first lesson.

We do have a rudimentary set of guidelines listed on both TVA page and on its Mentor Guidelines sub-page, but of course feel free to reach out to me or the other mentors if you need guidance on how to proceed with your program. If at any time we make changes to these guidelines, we'll attempt to notify you of them either on your talk-page or through the Discord.

We really appreciate you signing up as a mentor - fostering new generations of editors is an important endeavor, and you'll be helping to pave the way to this wiki's future. Good luck, and have fun! 寧靜 Fox.png 13:38, September 27, 2020 (UTC)

TVA

Thanks for agreeing to take me on for the mentorship program! I'm very excited to get started :) In terms of communication, is it OK to communicate primarily over Discord, or do you have another preference? Discord is definitely where I do a majority of my communication, if that works for you!

In terms of strengths, I have access to a lot of the Fallout 76 technical details that are not currently on the wiki. In terms of things I'd like to know more about, that's a tough one. As they saying goes, "I don't know what I don't know." :) Tables, templates, categories, wiki standards/expectations, and wiki etiquette are all relatively fuzzy to me. How do I best display the information? How do I modify a table? How do I create a table and how do I use the right table for the job? Which section is appropriate to place certain information in? Am I doing something that is frowned upon? Those are the kind of questions that run through my head as I'm working on edits. I'm sure more will come up as we talk more!

Thank you again! --Intrepid359 (talk) 23:50, September 29, 2020 (UTC)

Question

So I am making a poll in general asking who is everyone's favorite companion, there are going to be multiple parts givin the restriction of only having six things in a poll, I was wondering if it would be possible to link them together somehow. You don't have to get back to be immediately but at your most convenient time. Thanks again --DawgEngineer03 (talk) 17:06, October 12, 2020 (UTC)

RE: RE: Editing/Discussions Moderator

Thanks, I think I'll make a Discord if/when I get the position. The only thing I'm worried about is my edit count. I only have made 8 edits (9 including this message), none of which are edits on actual wiki articles. That might be seen as having insufficient skill with basic editing, though I'm not sure because the interpretation of that requirement is rather subjective. --The Appalachian (talk) 11:10, October 24, 2020 (UTC)

Hey, honey!

Thanks for the virtual pumpkin. Yes I know how to check this, and yes I’ll be cashing in my virtu-kin as a real life treat in future. How well did I do with messages?? <3 The Dyre Wife (talk) 15:08, November 3, 2020 (UTC)

Thanks so much for hosting that contest, it was super fun. I know it took time and effort to coordinate, plus the Portal reference, so here is a gift for you! -kdarrow Pickman heart.png take her for a spin! 05:14, November 4, 2020 (UTC)

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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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 Fox.png 14:12, 13 November 2020 (UTC)

Thread locking

I didn't get a chance to clarify, and you went ahead and locked the thread with your assumption. That's purely neglection. Khang (talk) 16:23, 18 November 2020 (UTC)

  1. Not everyone has the time to "stalk" a thread so to say you gave them a "plenty" of time with just 10 mins... That's neglection.
  2. The links are apparently from reliable domains (Github, Chrome extension store, Firefox addon store). You didn't bother to check and made assumption based on your unawareness. That's neglection. -- Khang (talk) 00:55, 19 November 2020 (UTC)

Guns

Hey so the topic on guns derailed into a full blown left vs right argument, and Aavt suggested that a second civil war would be good for the country, can you please lock up the thread? Branebriar1930 (talk) 00:14, 18 January 2021 (UTC)

User names

I've seen a user around here with the name of "The Dyre Wife". Is this person really your wife? Because if they weren't, I know I'd sure be worried...Leea (talk) 14:15, 30 January 2021 (UTC)

Discussions

Apologizes for my behavior then, it just seems that I have often been the first one to notice consecutive posting lately, and I suppose I got a bit tired of repeating myself. If you look at a lot of my instances I do tell them to use the edit function on their previous post. Just to be fully on the same page, should I actually not be doing any moderating on discussions at all since i am not a DM? Or am I within my rights to ask people to not consecutively post (nicely of course)? Branebriar1930 (talk) 16:56, 1 February 2021 (UTC)

That's honestly a bit of a relief, I only told people to stop double-posting because I thought I had to, I actually loath doing it. Going to dial it back and be less on the lookout for it from now on. Branebriar1930 (talk) 10:50, 2 February 2021 (UTC)

Nukapedian of the Year

Yeah, sure I'll take the nomination. Did NomadicNom take his?

I don't really know to say, other than that I'm one of the few "Old Timers" here and might as well get my Bronze Cane for being around for so long. I made my profile here back in the days when Fallout 3 just came out. I've certainly seen a lot of changes in the wiki and its users have come and gone since that time. Polls were one of the "big things" of those days and it would not be uncommon so see 100+ comments in that section as people just hung out there. Sadly, those days are long gone (not to mention the poll code itself is now gone, too), but hopefully some day those days - while not being like the Days of Old - can come back again, in part, and the Polls won't be forgotten like an old city newspaper people no longer read because everyone went to internet forums.

Will you join our crusade to defeat the Gonk Cult and, possibly, the Jebys? Meet us here if you decide to join. - D-Class Personnel (talk) 15:04, 9 March 2021 (UTC)

Thanks for accepting me!

Hey there and thanks for checking in.

I've lurked on the server for quite some time, actually. That and the datamining server. My Discord name is SitOnA-Rick [PS4]#7728 and its probably easier to reach me there... then again, I do spend quite a bit of time on the wiki - I almost always have at least one tab opened in my browser for it.

As far as talking to anyone about it - not in so many words. I must admit that I have a somewhat selfish reason for wanting to help with editing - I keep a hand written records book containing lists of various data so that I can easily reference it without having to use my phone or laptop. I have a thing about writing by hand and creating my own resources for things.

Anyhoo, I'm also a bit on the OCD side when it comes to uniformity and accuracy of information (or at least as far as it can be) and the next section in my personal compendium is based on locations in 76... and after some preliminary research and a bit of discussion about it on the datamining server it has come to my attention that there are some inconsistencies with the info shown in the infoboxes as well as not knowing/verifying that it is accurate.

So I'd like to help change that! Since I'm doing it for my own reasons anyways I thought I'd try and give back to the community by sharing my research.

Which is what brought me to TVA and signing up...

Sorry for the legit wall of text. You'll quickly find that I am the type of person who can write a 10 page description of a bowl of fruit... lol

Feel free to reply on my talk page or find me on Discord. Looking forward to learning from you! Update : forgot a ~ in signature... SitOnA-Rick (talk) 20:07, 11 April 2021 (UTC)

What was the nexus mod called?

So I'm the guy from the pitt steel ingot thingy, and I noticed your nexus mod comment about how you can mark a item with a quest marker. What is that mod called or could you link it to me? Thanks! - WolvZter

Challenge Accepted

My favorite reoccurring creature in the Fallout series has got to be the deathclaw. No other creature in any video game has instilled such a feeling of absolute terror in me. I can remember playing New Vegas and doing every other quest besides the one that you have to gather eggs for to prevent having to venture into their territory. Despite their reputation, deathclaws are actually quite photogenic. I even managed to get extremely close to one once!

Something happened

Hey so my CMOD rights were briefly removed and upon getting them back, I seem to have thread mod powers (locking and deleting posts, changing categories etc.). Is this a mistake or do CMODs have these since I have been away? Branebriar1930 (talk) 10:15, 25 April 2021 (UTC)

No, nothing on my end I'm afraid, so is this unique to me as far as anyone knows? Branebriar1930 (talk) 14:21, 6 May 2021 (UTC)

Components

That was...um....must've been some kind of brain fart, because I have no idea how that extra components line got in there. The only thing I can think of is that I thought I was adding it to the infobox, but it was already there. So I got nothing. No clue. Bad copy/paste or something. Yeah, let's go with that. Good talk!

Hi Dyre, Is this How i "Leave a Message"

Hi Dyre, i'm sorry this is the first time i have used a .. forum interface with these settings, did i leave a message correctly on your talk page? Actually i never found that button you said. I clicked on 'Create Topic' to right of the page.

Well, i went ahead with Bethesda, but some funny things with their launcher. Before i get there, i wonder what's wrong with bethesda.net community site? it would appear all options to do anything has been restricted from me. meaning, there's no buttons to do anything like "Create New Forum Topic", and i think i could not even reply to anyone's post. at first i thought it was my browser, but then i upgraded to a new firefox, same thing.

A. sorry to trouble you, but i experienced some weird things with the launcher. much like their site... most of tabs or options, if i click on them, system msg on top just says "Uh-Oh Looks Like We're Experiencing Some Problems" or something like that. This just happened as I am currently downloading FO76. I clicked on the "Shop" tab to see if i can spot anything you told me about (i assume this is the Atomic Store), and i get "Uh-Oh..."

B. Another thing is, i am wondering how i can change my Online/Offline Status while logged-in to the launcher. You know, like... remain hidden or something like that. is this possible, because i checked Settings and i do not see such option.

C. Lastly, i would like to ask, after i launch into the game, could i minimize to desktop and log-off then exit the Launcher? i would prefer to not leave the Launcher in logged-in status or running at all.

Thanks in advance

You know, i think FO76 is going to be a lot harder to learn for me than other mmo's cos, i just read somewhere on wiki that Fallout 76 has no GUI-Based Chat Interface!@?! LOL that is ridiculously absurd, cos i don't think all players are comfortable with inbuilt voicechat or server-based ventrilo. But i'm not afraid so much about this cos i have read many player complaints about this. i think bethesda would eventually comply with this players' request. Just that in the meantime, a new player could not just shout on general or world chat like other mmo's for help/advice.

However, until then, it appears the best place to ask questions/seek help would be here. i'm pretty impressed with the speed of response on this forum. ttyl, thanks for all the help so far. —Preceding unsigned comment added by ElevenBravo (talkcontribs) 14:56, June 15, 2021 (UTC).

Hey, you're right, it's definitely a bug cos i just reached Wayward Inn, and the npc barmaid's face is alright. And the ghoul, the real ghoul, too. —Preceding unsigned comment added by ElevenBravo (talkcontribs) 05:48, 17 June 2021 (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

Edit Warring

That was a mistake on my part as I was editing it to make my edit before locking more clear and to clear up an existing ref when the page was protected. This was a complete accident and not an intentional edit war. Devastating DaveZIP ZAP RAP 12:40, 21 June 2021 (UTC)

Even when we disagree, I trust you completely, your judgment is spot on, and you have a way with words that far surpasses my own. You are such a natural and having you as my partner in crime I mean sysop-ing is a relief, a joy, and a treat all mixed into one. Here's to many more adventures in crime I mean sysop-ing!
