Name

Shouldn't the page just be Tony, as The Tinker isn't his actual name. Like with Paladin or Elder, it's more like a title or nickname. JaspertheViking :D? 17:17, May 14, 2011 (UTC)

But it's the most complete name we can come up with. It isn't a rank or a title, just a name. See Scorpion Joe Cornelius for precedent. http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/fallout/images/0/08/Personal_Sig_Image.gif Tagaziel (call!) 17:27, May 14, 2011 (UTC)

location

Where can the notes for this character be found? I've never seen it in any of my playthroughs, and if its cut content the page should say that. BILLYOCEAN 23:11, June 20, 2011 (UTC)

Please keep an open mind

Someone keeps removing a simple edit I try to make to this page. Stating that Tony wants to impress a girl with his technical skills is NOT direct evidence that he is in any way a sexual predator. When I try to point this out in any way, my edit is removed. This is A) closed minded to other possibilities, and B) makes a statement that is not supported by facts. If I am not using correct formatting for my edit, please tell me and I will make appropriate changes. Input on this is appreciated.

According to the guidelines:

In general, content should be written in a style appropriate for an encyclopedia. Descriptions should be clear and precise; speculations or uncertain facts should be avoided.


If my edit is speculation and therefore disallowed, so is the statement about his being a sexual predator, as this is also speculation, unsupported by any in-game information.

Correct - both are speculation and inappropriate for the article. --Kris User Hola.jpg 00:36, June 21, 2011 (UTC)
It's based on available in-game evidence. Tony specifically mentions that he wants to impress the girl before the rest of the town can turn her against him. Furthermore, the primary goal for getting a girl in the first place is so that he doesn't have to pay Rosie. 2+2. http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/fallout/images/0/08/Personal_Sig_Image.gif Tagaziel (call!) 06:12, June 21, 2011 (UTC)

I agree that he does mention this, wanting to impress a girl. My argument is that stating he wants to impress a girl is NOT evidence of sexual predation. My only objection is to the painting of this character as a predator without better evidence to support that claim. Also, thank you both for your input, I know I am not registered (yet) and this was my first attempt at changing an article beyond simple grammar corrections. So far has been a good experience and I will continue to look for other ways I can contribute to the community.
