I try add info about how get double set of perks

-in the game in the perk site,and every time i add it it will be removed? I just wonder why? I was thinking general info how to get double set of perks would be interested info for most of the users.I added it today again,hopefully i will stay there for more than 1 day.If not please give me a reason why its removed please reply-user:TheRoyAndre

useless pages

can you do something about a user called Ethanwinner for making stupid pages up and pointless edits, cheers zip


I was just curious as to why she was moved to a character from a creature. It cannot be interacted with like a NPC. Plus we are redoing all of the creature articles now. Check out the Centaur (Fallout: New Vegas) page for the new layout. Thanks.--Kingclyde 01:05, April 26, 2011 (UTC)

The main reason I asked is that there is no interaction with her like there is with Snuffles or Rex. Thanks.--Kingclyde 01:26, April 26, 2011 (UTC)
Actually that is a factional reaction as they are both the same faction. An interaction is where there is some sort of dialog that can be achieved. I asked Ausir what he thinks so I know what to do in regards to the creature project.--Kingclyde 01:39, April 26, 2011 (UTC)

Takoma Park little league

I saw you deleted the Takoma Park Little League page I created. I understand that it was kinda a useless page about something that will never again be mentioned in a Fallout game but at the same time it was something that existed in the Fallout universe. There are plennty of useless pages on this wiki about random background info that has little to do with the games themselves but they serve as background for the fallout games as well as paint a better picture of life before the great war. Thats my opinion, I would love to hear your's.--Ramallah 08:47, April 26, 2011 (UTC)

All of my friends that play Fallout New Vegas have used this website. Tonight im using the skill books thing to maximise my character well one of the few. We all love it. How do you find or get all the information, like the background info, such as where people are born and are from such as the burned man? --Rappa3 21:37, May 19, 2011 (UTC)


Been thinking for it a while. Joshua Graham mentions "one of my tribe" but never specify on it actually being J.M.Browning. Is it right to link it to him? It is not confirmed, and we shouldn't speculate. Hugs Scar: "Say 'ello to my little friend!" 21:48, May 19, 2011 (UTC)

Appreciation 2

I cant imagine the ammount of time you spend retreving that information. Probaly the time i spent playing them. One of my buddies new where to get every down to prewar books. We are the biggest sweats ever and Fallout dude. Keep on doing what you do. Also looking forward to a Skyrim Wikia. Think you can manage or do you just do this for Fallouts. Also do you have any connection with Bethesda.

FO3 NPC project

Hello Shadowrunner (or Jeremy),

Maybe you have forgotten about the Fallout 3 NPC overhaul project and maybe you haven't. I have recently been pouring lots of work into the project and have finished essentially the majority of all unfinished sections, including all the add-ons. However, there is one thing that I cannot do and that is give peer reviews. As the new project leader, I'm asking to to take some time out of your online schedule and do some reviews on the project, if you'd be so kind. Who knows? If I get enough people doing peer reviews, we could finally finish this project. We didn't finish it before Fallout: New Vegas came out like we hoped, but at least we can finish it. Best regards, Kastera (talk) 22:42, May 24, 2011 (UTC)

NCR-Fiends war

I don't want to bother you with useless things, but I think that the NCR-Fiends war is an important event in the Fallout setting as the NCR lost several troops against the fiends and vice-versa. Maybe it's not properly a war, just some kind of guerrilla, but I think that it should be included in the wiki. Anyway, as an experienced user, I also think that you must decide. --Sheriff Williams 19:46, June 14, 2011 (UTC)

Sorry, but that information concerning cazadors can't be placed on Timeline page. The reason being is that Mobius fiddled around with the other Think Tanks' chronometers, affecting their sense of time, so we can't be so sure if the information given by Borous is accurate or not.--Kastera (talk) 22:01, August 21, 2011 (UTC)

Well looking at all other characters that fall under that category, for E.X. button gwinett is a robot, therefore he would fall under that category. I made sure before I started adding categories, this only makes sense right?

Boulder City

Hello ShadowRunner! I was just cleaning up the names on the Boulder City memorial and I happened to notice that you were the original source for stating that the Hayes mentioned on the memorial was related to the Hayes located in Primm. You wouldn't happen to have some confirmation for this information, would you? I went ahead and removed it as speculation for now, but I'll be more than happy to add it in again if needed. Anyways, thanks for your time and I hope to hear back from you soon! GarouxBloodline 11:14, 9 February 2012 (UTC)

Concept art

I've noticed you're helping out with the concept art uploading :) However, can you make sure to upload the highest possible resolution ("download original photo" on Flickr)?

Do you think that the layout of Vernon Square needs restructuring?--Ant2242 15:01, 30 April 2012 (UTC) Yea I agree, Butcher's is the better one for the main quote, but I don't think we should remove Reily's. Any ideas on where to put it? Also do you know if/whats the term for the (pedestrian concrete dividing island) for the loading areas?

What if there put on the charicters' page?--Ant2242 15:35, 30 April 2012 (UTC)

Bubble-Top Corvega

Should it be considered the same model as the Atomic V8, because the engine isn't referanced in game. Would it most likley not have the Atomic V8, but instead have a different engine all together?

So do you think that they should be seperated on the Corvega page?--Ant2242 16:37, 30 April 2012 (UTC)

Hey Shadow. I don't think it's proper to call citing the guide verbatim plagiarism. We attribute the quotes, rather than presenting them as our own work.

I do agree with your larger point, that we should rewrite and incorporate the information onto the flow of the article. Keep up the good work! ;) Tagaziel 07:58, 17 April 2013 (UTC)

Caesar's Legion and other faction's vexillology/symbolism

Hello, I'll try, if time and moderators allow to vectorize as many faction logos as I can and render them as .svg format. Also, I think the Caesars legion flag should be the vexillum since it's the proper symbol found in game, but I've changed the current flag to a vexilloid since there is no rectangle Caesar's Legion flag, I'll vectorize the file later if possible.

Mentioned Only

Be careful with your edits, please. Ant removed that Randall Clark is a mentioned only character in the info-boxes, because he isn't a mentioned only character, and I followed up on that change by removing him from the Honest Hearts mentioned only character category. Thank you for hopefully understanding. Happy editing! 23:21, 5 June 2013 (UTC)

What in the world are you talking about? A person is a person. Dead or alive, it doesn't matter - you can still find them, and you can still meet them. Just because they can't say "Hello" back doesn't mean that they're not a tangible presence. 04:00, 6 June 2013 (UTC)
Also, can you please stop edit-warring? There are two users who have agreed with these changes, and you have taken it upon yourself to take your own perceptions and lord it over us. Wouldn't you agree that an actual discussion would net better results, instead of steamroll editing? 04:03, 6 June 2013 (UTC)
I can respect your opinion. I still don't personally agree, though. This is the definition of 'meet': "Come into the presence or company of (someone) by chance or arrangement" If I am wrong in my assessment, though, I'd suggest talking this through with others, since there are many article-pages involved here, considering deceased characters that are not classified as mentioned-only characters. A couple of perfect examples would be Trash and Martin Retslaf. 06:53, 6 June 2013 (UTC)
So what do you think at this point? I'm still up for having my mind changed, but it's starting to seem like others are agreeing that one doesn't need to be alive to make a presence outside of the mentioned-only boundaries. 22:26, 13 June 2013 (UTC)

I'm personally inclined to take the anon's viewpoint; the point of a mentioned-only character is that they can't be found in-game. You'll never find a vault dweller from V22 (like Harrison Peters) or a pre-War entertainer (like Joey Baxter) so they remain as being "mentioned-only". Since many dead people are present or appear in the games, they should be treated as characters appearing in their respective game. That's what the "Appearances" section on character pages is intended to do: show that a character can legitimately be found within the game (it doesn't matter if they can be interacted with). --Kastera (talk) 03:20, 10 June 2013 (UTC)

Their bodies might appear, but the person doesn't actually appear. Maybe we can do something that for character's whose bodies only appear while they're dead before the player even gets to them? --Shadowrunner(stuff) 03:13, 14 June 2013 (UTC)

Can you be more specific? I think all you have to do is keep it square, so that the proportions are right. Tagaziel (talk) 21:37, 2 October 2013 (UTC)

From what I can see, the problem lies with the format. Try using the .png format instead of .gif. I believe Wikimedia uses a different scaling algorithm for the former, resulting in jagged edges and pixelization. Tagaziel (talk) 09:00, 3 October 2013 (UTC)

Pre-made Characters

Isn't that the problem, though? The game-guides are not canon material since they weren't even made by Obsidian, Bethesda, Zenimax, and I have the guide, as well, which when reading the page, never gives the impression that these characters were anything more than just example character strategies like Bethesda did for Fallout 3 on their website. They're not actual protagonists/antagonists, and adding them seems to be strategy. 20:42, 12 January 2014 (UTC)

Isn't that strategy though, which is not what our wikis are about? I mean, if they were actual protagonists or something that we could pick from such as in the originals, I'd understand. But in their current form, those pages are essentially telling players how to optimize certain builds. Sorry if I'm nitpicking, here. It just seems really odd to me to have these pages. 20:53, 12 January 2014 (UTC)
There's a difference between being made by Bethesda and being canon. The whole FNV was made by Obsidian (which is not the owner of the IP) for Bethesda, just like those guides were made by PrimaGames. Fallout canon article states that official supplement materials have the same level of canonicity as the respective game, at least untill they don't contradict that game. But let's not fight over the canon status. What should we do with the references? Albert Tenpenny, Billie DeLoria, Edgar Wellington III, and Opie Moriarty look like a FO3 reference for me. Even more since David Hodgson also wrote FO3 guide. Should we mention those references in Behind the Scenes? veryblackraven 21:06, 12 January 2014 (UTC)
Unless those archetypes are directly mentioned as being references to FO3 characters, we will consider that their names are a (at best) subconscious connection and not a lore one. After all; Why create new names when jumbling the old ones works?--Ant2242 (talk) 21:17, 12 January 2014 (UTC)
Ok then. I've removed Behind the Scenes section from Edgar Wellington III page. Still, I think it's a bit too strict. We have a number of reference which were not officially confirmed here. That "needs verification" template you used on Arnold Black page was more than enough, IMO. veryblackraven 21:28, 12 January 2014 (UTC)
I never said NV was made by Bethesda. :| 21:32, 12 January 2014 (UTC)
I never said you did. :) I just used it as an example that "not made by IP owner" does not mean "non-canon". And "made by IP owner" doesn't mean "canon", BTW, proved by FOBOS. :) veryblackraven 21:40, 12 January 2014 (UTC)

Drugs, not Chems

Hey Shade, a note: The correct term is drug. Chem is a post-apocalyptic slang term, one we should refrain from using. Category:Humans isn't named Category:Smoothskins after all. :) Tagaziel (talk) 20:26, 28 January 2014 (UTC)

Hey, no problem. I've specifically checked Wikipedia to see their generic, top level article. I think chem is a slang term used exclusively for man-made drugs, by the way, though I'm not a hundred percent sure. Tagaziel (talk) 07:40, 29 January 2014 (UTC)

Super mutant page fiasco

I was wondering what is your opinion about this idea that I'm working on to re organize the Super mutant page fiasco.

  • Super mutant
Backgrounds transcluded from here
Bios transcluded from here
    • Mariposa super mutant
Character overview similar to how the Ghoul main page is done
      • Nightkin
Character overview similar to how the Ghoul main page is done
    • V87 super mutant
Variety as with creature overviews

--Ant2242 (talk) 23:03, 12 May 2014 (UTC)

I think only the V87 sm should be treated as a creature page. The Mariposa sm seems to be more of a character. The confusion here is that there are so many missing generic characters.--Ant2242 (talk) 04:13, 13 May 2014 (UTC)

Missing dialogue files.

Thank you for adding that INT file. Are there other dialogue files missing, MSG or otherwise?--Ant2242 (talk) 02:40, 31 May 2014 (UTC)

The only other one I know of is Dumar (Fallout)'s file. Is there a way to find cut dialogue files?

Veronica's dialogue

I was perusing Veronica Santangelo's dialogue and I found some mention of an Abraham, sounds like a ghoul she knew and cared about, as well as some dialogue about an accelerator (Ctrl+F to find them). I never heard any of this when I talk to Veronica in game, so I think we're looking at some cut content. IIRC you've had a lot of experience with cut content; have you heard/seen any of this stuff before? --Kastera (talk) 19:22, 17 June 2014 (UTC)

What crafty developers they are. Thanks for the schooling. --Kastera (talk) 21:12, 17 June 2014 (UTC)

Missing coloumn

Thank you! For you help on the dialogue file project. I must ask what column is missing? I Know that one is for responses by the Courier, but I cannot for the life of me figure it out. I added what I could find to the bottom of various pages. Any help in the matter would be greatly appreciated!--Ant2242 (talk) 00:22, 24 June 2014 (UTC)

@_@ I have no idea what that means. <:-( !!
Thank you for finding the dialogue!! Unfortunately the entirety of the dialogue -that is on the wiki- was done the incorrect way.--Ant2242 (talk) 02:32, 24 June 2014 (UTC)

The Pitt

I was thinking: Maybe we should swap the categories and use just The Pitt for the settlement and The Pitt (add-on) for the add-on? Much like we have Harry and Harold, without the suffixes. Tagaziel (talk) 07:01, 27 June 2014 (UTC)

Vault 22 and cannibalism

That's a good point, but their being cannibals is stated at two separate points (when he tried to free the Mexicans and later when he saw them live). Sylvie also corroborates that they were a pretty horrible bunch. Overall, I think that we need to be careful with interpretation of sources. Clark could've inaccurately described a language spoken, but not the disappearance of several people in the bellies of a group of Vault dwellers. Tagaziel (talk) 20:47, 3 July 2014 (UTC)

The reason I give credence to Clark over Hendricks is that Clark is consistently showed as careful, but compassionate. He wouldn't have gone on a roaring rampage of revenge against the Vault dwellers if they hadn't committed some sort of heinous act, like killing and eating Mexicans. Go over the notes and see that this intense violence is an aberration, as normally he watches the immigrants to Zion from the shadows and even helps them discretely.
I understand your reluctance to use just a single source for it, but I do believe Clark has a better claim to the truth, given that his entries were intended only for himself and he wasn't concerned with showing them to others. Even Sylvie. Hendricks, on the other hand, since he leaves a public warning, wouldn't really out himself as a cannibal that ate people he enslaved. The warning is exactly what they'd leave, since truly evil people don't consider themselves evil. Tagaziel (talk) 07:18, 4 July 2014 (UTC)

More social

Do it. We might as well add a Twitter account and maintain it collectively for schizophrenic posting. ;) Just let me know the addresses and I'll add them to the frontpage. Tagaziel (talk) 08:35, 8 August 2014 (UTC)

If I may make a suggestion, the tumblr should be vaultwiki.tumblr, since other choices were taken. It sounds cliche, but I did some research last night and vault.tumblr hosted fetish pornography and thevault.tumblr was also taken, so that narrows our choices. The twitter handle should also match whatever tumblr name you decide on. --Kastera (talk) 16:34, 8 August 2014 (UTC)

Alright, I made my tumblr. Anything else needed from me? --Kastera (talk) 18:49, 10 August 2014 (UTC)

I will use the email feature on The Vault to get my tumblr email address to you. (But first you will need to go into your preferences and and check the box "Enable email from other users". It's at the bottom of the page under the User profile tab.) You can understand why I don't want to post it here on your talk page. --Kastera (talk) 19:22, 10 August 2014 (UTC)
 ::Sigh:: It seems like the Vault's email system and Tumblr's "ask a question" function both suck, so I'm going to try to send you tumblr fan mail tomorrow, when I've been following your blog for 48 hours.

So far, I've been posting things for my use as it tends to be my personal opinion or give me a nostalgic lore boner. Though now that you bring it up, the Sierra Madre broadcast and the Old World Blues things probably could have appeared on the Vault's page. I'm new to managing social network pages, so I don't know the customs of what should be posted to represent the organization (i.e. The Vault) in a good light. If you like, I can have the Vault tumblr reblog my posts. --Kastera (talk) 01:04, 18 August 2014 (UTC)

I actually didn't know how to post as The Vault until literally 20 seconds ago, so you can now expect more postings from The Vault by me in the future. --Kastera (talk) 01:33, 18 August 2014 (UTC)

Hi! So it's you who's running the Tumblr page. That's cool, it looks like The Vault is slowly getting presented on all major social platforms. I'm happy to help, however: 1. My skills with images leave much to be desired; 2. I've only just created my Tumblr account to follow The Vault, so I'll need some time to see how things are done there. :) Btw, I've done my bit of sharing on our G+ page. It's not as popular as Facebook one, but I hope this helps a bit. Also, don't you think we should add the link to the Tumblr to {{Wiki in other media}} to feature it on the main page? veryblackraven 22:14, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

Sure, as I've said, I'm happy to help. :) a.vyshensky@gmail.com veryblackraven 22:43, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

To me a repulsion device is any kind of security measure. From force fields to electrical floors to electrical & regular locks.--Ant2242 (talk) 04:56, 20 December 2014 (UTC)

That is a kind offer - I am actually in the process of furthering my website networking, and Tumblr is one of the social mediums that I am looking into next.

I was trying to find information on the performers of this song (Five Stars), but it's almost like they never existed. I found another five man doo wop group called The Dubs that was formed in 1956 out of two other groups, one of them originally called "The 5 Stars". Only problem is that The Dubs were never signed to Dot Records. Have you found anything on Five Stars? --Kastera (talk) 16:36, 19 June 2015 (UTC)

When I was making the page, I was going to list all of the landmarks as stand-ins for cities because Mt. Rushmore ain't a city and Keystone, SD isn't well known. Problem is I didn't know what the Chicago landmark was and it was an all or nothing thing, so I just settled for the "eight cities or landmarks". You obviously recognized the Chicago landmark, so could you replace the cities with the landmarks (Golden Gate Bridge, Space Needle, Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign, Mount Rushmore, "Chicago landmark", Gateway Arch, National Mall, and Statue of Liberty)? --Kastera (talk) 16:03, 24 June 2015 (UTC)

I believe its the "Chicago Water Tower", however I also believe that it should be the landmarks as Keystone, SD isn't well known.--Ant2242 (talk) 19:12, 24 June 2015 (UTC)
