Page layout

To be honest, I'm not sure. We used to have some control over the old mobile skin, but no idea whether we can influence the new one as well. I'd report it via Special:Contact as not only the news sections are hidden, but everything in the right column (more noticable on the portal pages), and is an issue that will likely affect more wikis than just The Vault. -- Porter21 (talk) 07:43, December 11, 2010 (UTC)

Special Request for Maintenance Help

Porter has pointed out that Category:Nominated for deletion has a backlog of about 2,000 image files. Please give this category some attention. I am asking you and about 20 other editors who have shown a willingness to contribute regularly to The Vault to aim for reviewing and taking appropriate action on 100 of the images marked for deletion. If we all do our part, things will be manageable again by the end of the holidays. Thanks for your help!

  • If an image has been superceded by a better image, delete it.
  • If an image is unused or unlinked to by any page, delete it unless it is unique and worth having. Perhaps we will use it sometime. If you can think of a use, please add it to that page.
  • If an image should not be deleted, remove the delete tag.

Lucky

No hostility taken or given. :) Naming a weapon "Lucky" is just a commonplace thing to do. It appears in more than just True Grit. And in the Western genre, special revolvers often have ivory handles. And, putting a shamrock on something named "Lucky" is just common sense. Taken all together, it's just too generic to be a reference to any one thing in particular. Cheers.--Gothemasticator 00:10, January 6, 2011 (UTC)

Some redirecting

Hi TrailerParkApe, Thought I'd say hi for a moment, we never spoke before. I have some redirect issues I'd like your take on. It's about the pages Platinum chip and Cass' outfit. At the moment these are the pages where other, similar named pages are redirected to. I think it should be redirected to The Platinum Chip (official GECK name) and Cass' Outfit. Fully capped, because they are both unique, What do you say? --Jspoelstra 17:28, January 8, 2011 (UTC)

Just a addition to this, The Platinum Chip appears not only in the GECK with "The" prefixed, it also appears in the PipBoy with the same prefix. However in the dialogue files it is not always referred to with this prefix attached. ☣Avatar☣ 21:14, January 11, 2011 (UTC)
Yeah I realise that, just wanted to give you enough information to make the right choice. Honestly I think it can be called either way, as all information on the actual item itself refers to it as The Platinum Chip, however all the NPC refer to it as the or that Platinum Chip. So is "The" treated the same way as "The" in The New York Times or The White house, or is it none essential prefix. ☣Avatar☣ 21:26, January 11, 2011 (UTC)

Old World Blues and Lonesome Road

Hi, since you were the one who protected the articles for Old World Blues and Lonesome Road, I don't suppose you could look over the talk pages for those articles and look at suggestions for additions to them? Thanks. --Flower of Pock-Lips 21:24, January 8, 2011 (UTC)

Quick question

Thought I would answer this for you from Gothemasticator page. Most of this is patch related, example with the energy weapons, along with beefing up the stats they where also placed earlier in the game on dead Bright Followers. As with the raider, they where adjusted along with other legacy content, there is random generation of a corpse near Novac now, see Raider armor (Fallout: New Vegas)#Locations. ☣Avatar☣ 23:09, January 14, 2011 (UTC)

New Vegas legacy content, basically FNV contains a large amount of FO3 content in its files that they never removed or used in game. Some things like the schematics for Shishkebab where actually used in the original release of FNV, even though you could not use them to make the Shishkebab, then was removed from being used in-game in later patches. There was actually a lot of tweaks like that in the patches in regards to legacy content being removed or added in later patches. So playing a game that is fully patched will be a lot different compared to the original release.

Ulysses

I was wondering what the issue was with the Ulysses article which prompted the revert? The information contained was largely the same, just better written and organised - no danger of unnecessary speculation. The only real speculation was from a paragraph added by Liam114, reading

"Players believe that Ulysses is a relation to the Courier (see Fallout: New Vegas add-ons), maybe his son born in Montana that the Courier got pregnant in 2264, or a family member.".

This could have easily been removed, and I feel the current version (post-revert) has an image with a less-fitting aspect ratio, less carefully organised and less well-written information, and also the speculative paragraph

"Interestingly, an advertisement for Poseidon Energy in the Mojave Wasteland reads "begin your Odyssey with us", with emphasis placed on the word Odyssey by way of using a different font."

Which is probably irrelevant and referring to ODYSSEUS. The revision I would probably favour is this one. --Flower of Pock-Lips 01:06, January 18, 2011 (UTC)

Fair enough on the point of saying he will appear specifically in Lonesome Road (although it is by far the likeliest candidate, given that the phrase is used on one of the graffitis of which he is the author), but both revisions say the same about the battle at the Divide and such, the only difference is that one is better-written. Not that it should be an issue, seeing as the details of the battle at the divide are known. Looking at it, the revision to which the article has been reverted omits the following information:
  • Role reads "companion" rather than "courier", which was part of the scrapped Ulysses.
  • The fact that he knew Elijah (stated by Christine).
  • His statement that he was seeking another courier, the current revision says it "implies" it, which is shown to be false in dialogue with Christine.

It also includes the speculative note that Ulysses' storyline will span all DLC's and conclude in the last one, which is simply not known to be true. The suggested revision, with references to Lonesome Road removed, is the way to go, imo. --Flower of Pock-Lips 01:26, January 18, 2011 (UTC) --Flower of Pock-Lips 01:26, January 18, 2011 (UTC)

Blog

All you need to do is add this template to the bottom of the page, right above the cats. I would change it, but I dont have the permissions to do so. ☣Avatar☣ 05:03, January 25, 2011 (UTC)

News

Sorry, I removed your post from news - the Radiant Story thing was mentioned in the article linked from previous tidbits post, the FNV DLC thing is not really anything new and I'd wait until they post the full interview with Hines, and I intend to post a bigger roundup of dev quotes soon. Ausir(talk) 08:38, January 25, 2011 (UTC)

Talk page comments removed

Can you take a look at this user, all he has been doing is removing whole section from talk pages posted by various other users. I have revert all of his removals, but I dont know if it requires a ban. ☣Avatar☣ 21:34, January 26, 2011 (UTC)

OK thanks, figured as much. ☣Avatar☣ 21:45, January 26, 2011 (UTC)

Why the "e" in the plural? Where does that come from?--Gothemasticator 13:00, February 9, 2011 (UTC)

Wham! Burglar

He's a legacy troll from NMA. While I do not believe in blocking users for expressing their opinion, I do believe such deliberate harassment of me and people that respond to my blog constitutes a blocking offense. I'm loathe do do it myself, since I'm an involved party, so I'd prefer if you made the decision to block him. Personal_Sig_Image.gif Tagaziel (call!) 07:52, March 2, 2011 (UTC)

Nope.

I had a conversation with another guy earlier about it, actually. I'm retiring from the Pokemon scene because Team Fortress 2 is so addicting. :P

I'm done with catching them all. I caught 'em all exactly once and I plan to keep that record intact. All these fancy schmancy color schemes and animations got nothing on me. Nitty Tok. 22:03, March 7, 2011 (UTC)

Movie treatment

I reverted your edit. First of all, we do not change the spelling of the source texts, even if it's wrong. And secondly, the treatment is not using "Arroyo" as a proper name but as a common word (see: arroyo (creek). Ausir(talk) 18:36, March 19, 2011 (UTC)

I don't think you're not competent to be an administrator. We all make mistakes from time to time. :) Ausir(talk) 18:48, March 19, 2011 (UTC)
Instead of quitting you can always change your admin status to "inactive" on the admin page. Ausir(talk) 18:54, March 19, 2011 (UTC)
You're doing just fine. :) Admins around here don't have equal time to give, nor do we all have the same skill sets. Just keep your head up and do what you can. Cheers.--Gothemasticator 19:02, March 19, 2011 (UTC)

History time

Not that much, but I can help a bit with research, if you want. I guess the first stop should be a documentary or something, I have one from my World in Conflict CE file, a copy of a Discovery channel doc. Personal_Sig_Image.gif Tagaziel (call!) 11:33, April 5, 2011 (UTC)

Cases

Hi i was just wondering why you deleted my pages for cases and casings if you could please tell me that would be great. Thanks. - TheFalloutGuru

Clothing

Hell yes, this is one of my pet pevs. FNV has different game mechanics for armor, combining both games only serves to confuse things between DR and DT for the end user. User avatar tagUser Avatar talk 18:32, April 24, 2011 (UTC)

One sec, does Enclave officer uniform exist in FNV? User avatar tagUser Avatar talk 18:33, April 24, 2011 (UTC)
Ahhh yeah, if you get the Remnants on your side. I wouldn't know as I shot them =D User avatar tagUser Avatar talk 18:39, April 24, 2011 (UTC)
Pfft, they were Enclave, plusthey are cowards for running away and hidding because it all went tits up, they deserve it twice over.

Creatures

Just a FYI, the awards for creatures is a incentive to get the pages up to scratch on the new layout guide lines, example would be Centaur (Fallout: New Vegas) for a completed page. User avatar tagUser Avatar talk 20:10, April 25, 2011 (UTC)

That is to true, you might want to speak to Ausir about it as the creature one was his idea. User avatar tagUser Avatar talk 20:26, April 25, 2011 (UTC)

I do believe they are an occurrence only the WW trait, but dont hold me to that. I normally shot first and ask questions after shoting the second time, so I never really hung around to double check, plus I never really play without the WW trait. User avatar tagUser Avatar talk 21:18, April 25, 2011 (UTC)

Yeah, they're WW only. But with the new layout, they should be merged with giant rat and put there as a variant. Ausir(talk) @fandom 21:22, April 25, 2011 (UTC)
As for the achievement track, we're doing this one as an experiment for now. Ausir(talk) @fandom 21:25, April 25, 2011 (UTC)

Deathclaw

Just taking a quick glance and overall it looks good. Just a few things, the variants in the infobox need to be internally linked to the variants on the page, take a look at Feral ghoul (Fallout: New Vegas) which I am currently working on to get an idea. Location needs to be set as the location of the game (ie: Mojave Wasteland) and DLC when they appear in those, more localised locations go in the variants section description for each variant, otherwise it can become confusing which variant of Deathclaw appears in what place. No base ID is needed in the infobox as that all goes into the new stats table. As for the main content Characteristics needs to be added as that is a required header and the regular Deathclaw (stats etc) need to be placed under variant as well. Other than that it is all good and probably needs as you said a type job. But others can earn there badges doing that hihi =D User avatar tagUser Avatar talk 21:59, April 26, 2011 (UTC)

Yep, that needs to be removed. User avatar tagUser Avatar talk 22:09, April 26, 2011 (UTC)

Pictures

I attempted to rectify the placing problem, my mistake :P but I've now resized the Dog (Fallout: New Vegas) images I put up aswell, you can check over to see if that's alright if you wish. Thanks for the info. --233345-cartman1 tinyUser Avatar talk 22:45, April 26, 2011 (UTC)

Hey

Hey it's ZERO N7, this is my new account just to let you know and also can somebody post up like a weekly PSA (Public Service Announcement) or something regarding feedback and thingsw like that and reminders of Policy? So many people have never read the Policy and I think some one like me (I am on this site everyday) could maybe do a weekly news article about that or maybe become an Admin solely for the purpose of that and deleting useless comments. --PipGirl 22:11, April 27, 2011 (UTC)

Pipgirl101

You may want to take a look at http://fallout.wikia.com/wiki/Special:Contributions/PipGirl101 considering all the personal attacks and just general nuisance and drama mongering she causes around here a little bit of action may need to be considered. Funny, since she spends most of her time on the Vault complaining about abusive comments towards herself.

FO3 Creatures

Could you do peer reviews for for Deathclaw (Fallout 3), Giant ant (Fallout 3), Radscorpion (Fallout 3), Swampfolk, Trog, and Yao guai (Fallout 3)? They've been had all their sections filled out, but I can't do the review since I contributed to most of the sections. I tried asking Ausir but he's away from The Vault since he "doesn't have much time for The Vault currently... aside from really pressing matters", so I thought I'd ask you. Thanks!
