Changing article editor?

I know, i know...they gonna eat me alive for even mentioning this, BUT you must watch other wikis, most of them have a much more simple and easy-to-handle editor, so...i'm just sayin'. --That dude with an unoriginal user name 03:34, January 18, 2011 (UTC)

We use to have a simple editor (forgot it's name), but we removed it because it sucked and was useless. Insane! 03:40, January 18, 2011 (UTC)

It may have sucked to you, but I miss it. The new editor damn near crashes Firefox, does crash the Steam overlay browser, and lags my rig far more than New Vegas itself can! So disappointing, a wiki edit page stressing my rig more than a 3D RPG...OI! Sometimes simpler is just better, and honestly how hard is it to put a toggle switch in our preferences for those of us who still want to use it? I'm the best at space!

i have a 500 dollar laptop that can hardly support civilization 3 and im not having any problems, there is definitely something wrong with your computer


Maybe with some help of JavaScript it is possible to have the search box autofocussed. In the most cases I visit the main page I just want to search something and it would be great if the click into the search box is no longer necessary :) ColdDevil 15:29, January 21, 2011 (UTC)


Hi. I'm an anonomys user. I don't know if you are aware of this but pages sometimes zoom in and 1/4 of the page is missing from the left. Please find a fix for this issue. Thanks. Sorry about below. Still new. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs). Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

There's probably little this wiki's contributors can do about this unfortunately. Your best chance of getting it fixed is by reporting it to Wikia (the host) via Special:Contact. -- Porter21 (talk) 18:37, February 8, 2011 (UTC)

That may be an issue caused by your browser. I use Google Chrome and I have not seen that happen. Nebenthe 14:29, August 30, 2011 (UTC)

Possible Inventory Table

Same user as above. I was wondering if it wasn't too much trouble to put up a table in a merchant's page with their available items for sale and what conditions must be met for them to be there. I think this may be too much but I know alot of people would find this useful. Thanks again. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs). Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

I agree. Why don't we have something like this? A table of the items always sold and the leveled items? Chaos ian7 04:16, February 8, 2011 (UTC)
It's certainly a reasonable suggestion - but it's also a lot of work ;) There's a project to get those inventories on the wiki (The Vault:Fallout 3 merchant overhaul project), but there hasn't been much progress yet. You're welcome to contribute :) -- Porter21 (talk) 18:31, February 8, 2011 (UTC)

Strange Recommendations

When editing an article, they ask for help with another one that's supposed to be related. I found that the relationship of the topics is extremely different or absolutely non-existant. Can somebody please explain why? note:I'm gonna put the ~x4 this time. 04:41, February 11, 2011 (UTC)

It's completely automated and random. Making an account will make 'em stop. Nitty Tok. 05:06, February 11, 2011 (UTC)

Trolling on the "Contents" Section

Just thought that you should know, someone put up something resembling a sex ad in the contents section. Just check the edit history.--XeroSnake 01:35, February 16, 2011 (UTC)

Fixed, thanks for removing it. --Anon talk 01:43, February 16, 2011 (UTC)

RIFT advertisement

Hey, is there any way to cancel the full-page RIFT ad? (the one with the animated bird off to the left). Every time it pops up on this site my browser freezes. 06:16, March 13, 2011 (UTC)

Register as an editor on the site, and you will not have to deal with the ads.--Gothemasticator 07:45, March 13, 2011 (UTC)
You could also use Ad Block Plus. I'm the best at space!

What the Krypta?

Mmm'kay, could somebody please tell me why the vault logo thing now says Krypta? I'm not the only person this has happened to, btw. --Valoopy sig.jpg Valoopy 01:33, June 27, 2011 (UTC)

'Krypta' is the Polish version of the Vault, and that's the new logo that they're using. I'm not sure why it's there, but the history for the wordmark says that Ausir uploaded it back in November (which can't be true).
I suspect this might be a bug with our 'shared image repository', which allows for the images uploaded to the English wiki, to be posted on other versions of the Vault. The problem is, that it's not supposed to work both ways, meaning that images uploaded to other versions of the Vault can't be used here and they also shouldn't overwrite our existing images. But the fact that the new logo for the Polish Vault was uploaded today makes me believe that this is in fact the case. --Anon(Talk) 02:03, June 27, 2011 (UTC)
Update: Just reverted the file to its previous version (English version), and it appears that the Polish wordmark has changed as well. I'm going to send a message to Wikia, so they can fix it. --Anon(Talk) 02:21, June 27, 2011 (UTC)

Wikia Gaming Footer

This wiki is listed in the Wikia Gaming Footer, but the Wikia Gaming Footer is missing from this wiki.
You can add the Wikia Gaming Footer by adding {{w:Wikia Gaming Footer}} to the bottom of the main page. -User452 04:10, August 31, 2011 (UTC)

Cutscenes in Bethesda games like Fallout?

What's your opinion? Should future games from Bethesda have cutscenes?

I believe you may want to pose this question at the forums. I'll leave a link for you here.
Just as a side note, this page is for discussing the Wiki, not the game. Have fun on the forums! Yes Man default.png 06:53, September 25, 2011 (UTC)

What happens if Interplay wins the Beth vs. Interplay suit?

What exactly happens if Bethesda loses the Bethesda vs. Interplay suit? Does Interplay just gain the rights to make Fallout Online? Or do they recieve Fallout again? I know that the terms of the lawsuit has changed many times. Can someone clear it up please? Thanks. 23:48, October 31, 2011 (UTC)Lambent

IANAL but there's two lawsuits currently, the BvIP and the IPvB. If Bethesda loses the first one then they just go about their business, but if they lose the second one then they lose the franchise. Limmiegirl 00:11, November 1, 2011 (UTC)

My weapons keep disapearing. I had in equipment: 3 antimaterial rifles, 3 sniper rifles, 2 fatman nuke launchers, 2 mini guns, 3 light machine guns, 3 missle launchers, 3 .44 magnum pistols and other equipment that didn't come up missing. After an engagement with at the legion raiding camp heading NNW I also came upon a legion assasination squad in that mix making the number 13 legioneers when we came out of the fight I only had 2 sniper rifles, 1 mini gun, 1 light machine gun,1 fat man nuke launcher, and 1 missle launcher. This happened before in another game but with a different number of companions. any thoughts? 04:47, November 19, 2011 (UTC) -- 04:47, November 19, 2011 (UTC)
