Infobox weapon Edit

That infobox is set not to resize images because most of the weapon images for the older games are smaller than our default image size (and hence would be enlarged/pixelated if the image was resized). If you do need resizing on certain pages, simply add |px =240x200px to the infobox there. -- Porter21 (talk) 10:46, October 18, 2011 (UTC)

Re:(Mariposa) super mutant Edit

I always thought that this is logical. In recent articles about super mutants in F:NV most super mutant (except 1?) has specified that they come from Mariposa, then i think, why the rest of mutants from F1/F2/F:T can't have? Also, all humans from F3/F:NV in "race" have detail about it, "Caucasian", "Hispanic" etc. --Languorous_Maiar 16:48, October 19, 2011 (UTC)

They are first generation Mariposa mutants (and besides, second generation mutants are also from Mariposa, as they were created when Enclave discovered Mariposa). Tactics takes place before Enclave's excavation of Mariposa, though, so they are all definitely 1st generation Mariposa mutants. Ausir(talk) 07:44, October 20, 2011 (UTC)


I understand that this item pertains to fallout, but the article clearly states that this item is present in team fortress 2, not fallout. Therefore, it is not a fallout item but is based on a fallout item. Perhaps it would be better if this item were listed in the "pip-boy" article instead of it's own article.(Nemerian 11:05, October 24, 2011 (UTC))

I thought that they should go into the Fallout: New Vegas promotional items article personally. TheGuardianCalligraphyGuardianoftheWastesTag 11:47, October 24, 2011 (UTC)
Well, that is a very valid point. I hadn't considered that :). Anyway, I looked at the forum, and it loks like it will be successful, so good luck ;). TheGuardianCalligraphyGuardianoftheWastesTag


I've been wondering for quite a while now if you work with some of these developers, because you always manage to get pictures where no one else can. I know you live in the Ukraine, but it's still possible. TheGuardianCalligraphyGuardianoftheWastesTag 11:47, October 24, 2011 (UTC)

Well, it sounds like you are being modest to me. I know one thing is certain, and that is that if you didn't do them, no one else would. So, thanks I guess :). TheGuardianCalligraphyGuardianoftheWastesTag

Pictures Edit

Thanks for telling me about the pictures, I should have looked at the policies closer. HighFiveBearLeftHighFiveBearRight 21:44, October 25, 2011 (UTC)

New infobox & images Edit

"image=empty" doesn't work with the new infoboxes (setting anything to "empty" doesn't work, to be precise); more details can be found in Forum:New infoboxes#Changes for editors. You can hide the upload button by setting image to "@hide", but I don't see why you'd want to do that if you're tagging the page with {{image needed}} anyway :) -- Porter21 (talk) 13:24, November 1, 2011 (UTC)

No problem :) We've been using the old infoboxes for so long that it takes some time to get used to the new ones. -- Porter21 (talk) 13:31, November 1, 2011 (UTC)

Are you staying? Edit

Just wondering if you'll be staying on this wiki, or if you'll be moving to the "new" Vault. Grammarlad(talk) 12:48, November 27, 2011 (UTC)

Developer imagesEdit

I uploaded some new developer images you added on The Vault also to here. I think you understand I like to have them. Hope you don't mind too much. I can give you credit when I categorize them if you want. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 16:12, May 28, 2012 (UTC)


Ok, I'll make a link to The Vault from now on. Will do some backtracking to images also. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 16:50, August 28, 2012 (UTC)

Tactics character imagesEdit

Hi Blackraven. Do you know by any chance how to convert the original Fallout Tactics character images to proper black and white format? We have some in the original green and some in black and white. I'd like them all black and white and I can make them black and white, but don't know how to get rid of these horizontal lines. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 19:57, December 21, 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for the tip! Already had done some searching beforehand on No Mutants Allowed but couldn't find the right tools. Lot of good stuff in those .bos files like sounds etc. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 21:53, December 22, 2012 (UTC)


On 21Sept2013, you will be 9 months inactive, and per policy, your rights will be removed unless you return to active editing. Your contributions are appreciated, and I hope to see you back contributing soon. The Gunny  380px-USMC-E7 svg 02:31, August 21, 2013 (UTC)

user pageEdit

I noticed you message on Janaschi's wall and looking at it, the protect was put in place for vandalism protection by ghost avatar. I've dropped it registered users now, so you can change it as you see fit, but I'd avoid putting links to the Vault back up. They caused a stir with Wikia themselves, rather than ourselves from what I've been told. We'd like to avoid upsetting the hosts if we can.

Purging Edit


I'm at work right now, so I'll look into it when I can - I'll go ahead and say right now that I'm sorry, as I know that my intent is never to make my fellow editors feel uncomfortable or unwelcome.

That being said, if I did protect your user-page at the time, I can say right now that it wasn't for personal reasons; however, if I did remove any sort of linkage, that was likely back when there were some advertising issues that Nukapedia was having with The Vault, in which we were attempting to undermine those efforts until relations were brought back to normal.

As a side-note, you certainly do not have to explain yourself to me, as I know where you are coming from - I resigned from Nukapedia a long time ago, and became a sysop over at The Vault, too, only really remaining here as an ambassador between the communities, of sorts. 寧靜 Fox 15:19, February 27, 2018 (UTC)

Nukapedia - Vault Merger: voting has reopenedEdit


As you may have already seen, voting for the proposed merger has been reopened. Voting was originally postponed so that users could better discuss the proposal, and after a lengthy conversation, that forum has since come to a close. For more information, please see the discussion itself. The post is a little lengthy, but if you are truly interested in making an informed decision, I would recommend reading through it.

Because this discussion may or may not affect how you voted initially or your rationale at the time, please review your post so that it reflects your current beliefs accurately.

This is only a notice of open polls and is not soliciting a change of vote. This is a generic talk page message intended only as for any and all voters, so as to avoid any indication of bias towards a particular outcome. Voting is slated to end on 5:01 pm November 1, 2019 (UTC).

The formal vote can be found here.

Robbin Maddock Edit

Hello, Oleksandr. First - thanks for information about developers; second - why RoBBin? And the third - do you happen to know that photograph of Maddock is a prototype of Robin?--ExplorerSmaily (talk) 11:42, March 28, 2020 (UTC)

Left just in case here (no one bothers). Maddock, as programmer, could change and delete own character. At least I focus on sources from versions 1.13 and 1.27. --ExplorerSmaily (talk) 12:26, March 28, 2020 (UTC)

Rage Dan Levin Edit

Daniel Levin changed the foto. This is Rage) I captured the moment.--ExplorerSmaily (talk) 20:24, May 18, 2020 (UTC)

Withers Orman Edit

It's amazing how he looks like Ed.--ExplorerSmaily (talk) 20:55, May 18, 2020 (UTC)

His nose, eye sockets and eyes give him away. Here he has not changed much in facial expressions, so it is easy to identify. Try to show someone else.--ExplorerSmaily (talk) 22:22, May 18, 2020 (UTC)

Wilma and Cypher Edit

Here by their skulls and facial contours, two people are very familiar. The first is to the right of Tariq. This beardman with a big nose is like Cypher (only without glasses). And the right of Ed Orman (bottom, with a wide smile) below is Wilma in the black glasses. Can you interrogate any of them through Facebook? I"m a little tired of peerin at them) --ExplorerSmaily (talk) 22:25, May 18, 2020 (UTC)
