Teddy Bears. :3[edit source]

Ahaha! Well, luckily, I already have Sergeant Teddy in my possession. :3 I got that through um.. 'unfortunate but legal-ish' means.. ^-^ but as for Mr. Cuddles? What? I've never heard of that before. :( Oh and, for the record, I also have this in my possession, for safe-keeping. :) I genuinely am gonna go and get Mr. Cuddles now, I must. Thank you for that. :3 Oh and haha, thank you for that. I have put a fair amount of effort into my profile. :) Mmh, my main save on Fallout: New Vegas is I think.. 600+ hours? Not to mention all of the separate endings that I didn't save.. and the damage achievements too. I think the only reason why I have so many hours is because I made it my personal mission to go out there and collect every unique item. Haha. :) ButterflyKiss 11:01, July 29, 2011 (UTC)

I have no friends on this Wiki.[edit source]

Lame. Someone give me some conversation already, no one around me gives a shit about Fallout.GlassJAw667 07:30, August 7, 2011 (UTC)

I'm still fairly new to this Wiki, is it possible to add people as a friend on here?

Not really. Some users make a list of friends their page and people add their names to it. Check out User:The Nemesisx as an example. If you wanted a fallout conversation come join the live chat now and again. Good way to meet folks. Yes Man default.png 06:35, August 11, 2011 (UTC)

Paratrooper[edit source]

I don't knwo where you wnet but have you met any British troops? What are they like? --The--Red--Devil 11:21, August 7, 2011 (UTC)

When I was in Baghdad on my last deployment I met about 7 British troops, and they were all very nice guys, and were pretty damn hilarious. The Australian troops I met were cool and funny as well. I also had the pleasure of meeting a few Latvian? troops, at least I think that's where they were from. They were all carrying P-90's and had really strange uniforms. I'm pretty sure back in 2006-2007 we did a joint mission with a few Brits as well. GlassJAw667 17:44, August 7, 2011 (UTC)

Training[edit source]

Ok, thank's I'm always intrested to hear of foreign thoughts about my countries soldiers (for a school report on the lack of funding to the Military and the hypocrisy of the previous government, boring I know but I want to make a good officer and need the grades) It's been my dream since I was five to become a paratrooper and if it's not too much to ask would like to know as much as possible about the life. Granted we are from different countries but a they are one of the same, a hunters a hunter, an eagle's an eagle. If you coul kindly tell me about the differences from other soldiers, the training, the kind of mind set required and most importantly the combat. --The--Red--Devil 20:04, August 7, 2011 (UTC)

Your article again.[edit source]

It wasn't linked to your page and it was listed as a Fallout: New Vegas character. Also, to make your signature a link to your page you have to use [[user:*insert username here*] and if you want to make the link say something different use [[user:*insert username here|*insert text here*], but add a second "]" on the end. Best regards, The almighty one

Help.[edit source]

GlassJAw667 click edit beside the title of this section to view that code. Use that as your signature. I can't really offer much help as I am not very knowledgeable about the code myself, but I suggest requesting further help from an admin. Also, when you create an article there should be a list of templates at the top of the page that will input the code for you so you don't have to type it all out yourself. Best regards, The almighty one

If there is anyone out there with enough time and patience I would love for you to give me a rundown on some simple coding/what to look for on the Wiki so I can contribute more. I see a lot that needs cleaned up, but I am not real good at it. But I am dedicated to it. So any Admins out there got any tasks that need done, with a little explaining I can fix things on this Wiki a minimum of 6 hours a day. And if my experiment(failure) pissed anyone off, I apologize. GlassJAw667 02:17, August 8, 2011 (UTC)

Hey! So you was in the paratroopers?thats really cool man!its a honor to have some one like this on the wikia :D ! Have you played the previous Fallout's? (2,1)?

Not sure who wrote the last comment, but I am still in the 82d Airborne Division, but had to drop my jump status (No longer jumping) due to the fact that I had to have open back surgery last year. I actually destroyed 2 disks in my back in Jump School, and let it go for 5 years before I finally decided to have the surgery. I went through 2 deployments to Iraq for a total of 28 months, carrying 90lbs of gear and patrolling the streets of Tikrit and Baghdad in severe pain. I am currently going through a Medical Board with the VA for it right now. I appreciate the comment, and I will have served almost 7 as a paratrooper before my discharge will be complete.

I played the first Fallout years ago, and I used to play Diablo online back in like 97' as well. I thought I was the man because I had a 56K modem when they were brand-new :) I don't really remember the original too much, and didn't get back into the Fallout series until 3 came out, since then I am hooked! Like I stated in my profile, I even went so far into fanboy status that I got the Finesse perk icon tattooed on my right tricep while on leave from Baghdad. I had it done in a style that made it look sort of homemade to somewhat mimic what a tattoo would look like if done in a post-apocalyptic world. GlassJAw667 02:33, August 11, 2011 (UTC)

Hi there[edit source]

I dropped by to see who uploaded the howitzer and was going to leave a message about it (basically saying not to put it on a page because it will be instantly removed), and I see that you want coding help? If you make what you want more precise I'd be happy to help :). TheGuardianCalligraphy.pngGuardianoftheWastesTag.png.

That's the policy I'm afraid :). Unless the developers say that it is designed to look like a real weapon, the rules won't allow it on the page.
As for coding, it would be more helpful if you gave some examples of problems, but I'll do my best for you. Note that all the below are missing their second bracket of either ] or } so that the links are not recognised so that you can see them. A bullet point is done with one of these stars * at the start of a line.
  • To put a section header you need two = signs and then write what the section name is and do a further two at the end. You can see this at the top of this section actually if you click edit.
    • If you see a section missing then add it with that and fill it in. If you don't know enough to fill it in, type this {{section}, with the extra bracket, and it will be filled in later by someone else
  • If you feel there is an article that is too short, add {{Stub-FNV}, for New Vegas and if not the others will come up.
  • To add a link, its two brackets [[page name here]. If you want to link, but without the name of the link, for example to exclude the game name in brackets, you need to do this: [[page name here|visible name for link here], so with the line ( | ) in the middle, but with no space after it.

Here is what they look like when done, {{Section} {{Stub-FNV} Dogmeat (Fallout 3) Dogmeat
If you click edit, you can see all the code for this part :). Anything else, feel free to ask. TheGuardianCalligraphy.pngGuardianoftheWastesTag.png 13:02, August 18, 2011 (UTC)

Requesting Clarification[edit source]

Hi there, I was just going through editing the X-8 Data Retrieval Test when I noticed your report of the bug. I'm afraid that I really couldn't understand exactly what you meant to say here: "This will make "Unusual Specimen" from the list quest to be completed by turning the "Institutional Data Retrieval Test" & "Unusual Specimen" both uncompleted with the quest unfinished."

Would you please either make the change to something more understandable, or explain the bug to me and I'll make the changes?

Thanks for your time, and thank you for serving our country.

-- The Arcadian Rook(talk)User blog: Arcadian Rook|(Needs More Battle Cattle) 02:15, August 23, 2011 (UTC)

Ah, my mistake, then, but yeah, if you could make that edit, that would be friggin' great, thank ya! I'm not really sure what the editor was trying to say there and it was beginning to hurt my brain just looking at the damn sentence. -- The Arcadian Rook(talk)User blog: Arcadian Rook|(Needs More Battle Cattle) 03:41, August 23, 2011 (UTC)

Meh, it wouldn't have been a big deal, even if it had been your posting, really; we all mess up from time and time, after all. -- The Arcadian Rook(talk)User blog: Arcadian Rook|(Needs More Battle Cattle) 03:48, August 23, 2011 (UTC)

Resident Evil[edit source]

Heh, good times. I've played RE 0-5, both versions of 1 and both RE 4 for the GC (which is what I bought the GC for) and for the PS2 when it came out for it, too. Tried Code Veronica, but I could never realy get into it. So far, I've logged in ~156 hours total into RE 5 Gold, getting back into the swing of things after about a year of not playing and trying to refine my game to climb the ladder. Used to be in the top 25% on the PSN leader boards for most of the Mercenaries Reunion maps, but I'm pretty sure I can do better than that. What platform do you play RE5 on? -- The Arcadian Rook(talk)User blog: Arcadian Rook|(Needs More Battle Cattle) 02:46, August 24, 2011 (UTC)

Just letting you know that I've sent an add request to your PSN and, afterwards, removed your PSN ID from my talk page, in case you wanted to keep that private. -- The Arcadian Rook(talk)User blog: Arcadian Rook|(Needs More Battle Cattle) 18:01, August 24, 2011 (UTC)

Resident Evil 5 Rotten Eggs[edit source]

Wondering if you've got a stash of them that you can help me dupe. My old college roomie (closest thing I've got to a younger bro, really) recently picked up RE5 and I'm starting to get sick of trying to farm even one of the damn things (I've been farming the spidery plaga from 4-1 for about half an hour without any luck). Can you help me out? The PSN User ID is TamlynThomas. Long Story. no, it doesn't involve crossdressing or police, but it may ,in fact, involve Nazi Gold, buxom damsels in distress, two tributaries (and a small stream) of blood which flow together to form a bay of snakes and a corporation whose entire policy towards pants leans a bit towards the "No" side of things.

Thanks! -- The Arcadian Rook(talk)User blog: Arcadian Rook|(Needs More Battle Cattle) 17:14, August 31, 2011 (UTC)

Page deletion[edit source]

It is already on the Gun Runners' Arsenal page what ammo is being added, we do not need another page on it. Also please sign posts with ~~~~ - Crazy Sam10 Talk User blog:Crazy sam10|PollShadowAttackSmallAni.gif 05:39, September 1, 2011 (UTC)

That page is just a list for the ammunition added, the catagory only needs to exist on the individual pages, a good example of this is Honest Hearts, .45 was added in the DLC but we do not put an ammunition category on the page. - Crazy Sam10 Talk User blog:Crazy sam10|PollShadowAttackSmallAni.gif 05:46, September 1, 2011 (UTC)

Understood. Just trying to contribute. No harm no foul right? At least I wasn't vandalizing, I was actually trying to be constructive. :) GlassJAw667 05:48, September 1, 2011 (UTC)

Your edits.[edit source]

Just wanted to let you know that you're doing a swell job so far, mate. It's pleasing to see you so active :). All the best, The Almighty One 06:01, September 4, 2011 (UTC)

Gifts.[edit source]

Gifts are just things that people often leave on a person's page as a sign of gratitude, or thanks. Though they're often just given out left and right for no good reason by people who copy and paste the code. Also, people who make a significant contribution to a project will receive a project medal as a gift so everyone knows of that individuals awe-inspiring awesomeness. And thanks for removing that guy's idiocy. Cartman banned him from chat after he was being insulting and generally retarded. All the best, The Almighty One

Festus[edit source]

Stop removing my change that says 'Festus means happy in Latin'.

First off, post your name when leaving a message by typing four "~" symbols after your post, secondly, I didn't remove any of your changes, so learn to navigate the site properly before accusing me of anything. My edits were to the description of Festus.

Sorry[edit source]

3rd day love fallout as much as you and mixed up who was changing it.

It's all good. I generally will not mess with someone elses' post unless it is too difficult to read, and needs to be clarified. GlassJAw667 14:17, September 4, 2011 (UTC)

Cruising[edit source]

just a quick question, what is your favorite weapon? (it can be in 3 or New Vegas)

The Terrible shotgun in Fallout 3 and probably the Gobi Campaign scout rifle in Fallout: New Vegas. GlassJAw667 16:32, September 4, 2011 (UTC)

Your edits:[edit source]

I love how you are so prolific in your editing (it really helps the Vault) but just keep in mind that you do not need to link to another article more than once per article. Thanks! AFollower 02:46, September 5, 2011 (UTC)

I know, I'm the same way too but one time I found an article that linked to ITSELF 19 times. That's when I was like 'Okay that's annoying'. Keep up the good work! AFollower 03:02, September 5, 2011 (UTC)

I hope you're not being sarcastic... haha. GlassJAw667 07:31, September 5, 2011 (UTC)

I just want to re-emphasize this point. Please review this: .BILLYOCEAN 06:20, September 5, 2011 (UTC)


No problem amigo. Hope I didn't sound too mean, I was just a little annoyed. Keep up the dedication though, the Vault always appreciates help. Keep up the good work. BILLYOCEAN 07:33, September 5, 2011 (UTC)

Any thing you don't know you can learn, an active interest is whats important! If you need any help with anything, don't hesitate to ask. I'm not the best editor around, but if I don't know I can point you in the direction of someone who does. Also, remember, one of the rules of the wiki is 'Be Bold!. Don't be afraid to jump in and make edits, its the best way to get the hang of things. BILLYOCEAN 07:44, September 5, 2011 (UTC)

How's it going?[edit source]

Hi Glass, how have you been getting on? You never told me if you though I was any help or not, so I thought that I would stop by and ask. Need any other help? TheGuardianCalligraphy.pngGuardianoftheWastesTag.png

Brilliant :). That's fine about those projects: my offer stands that if you want help you need only ask. I've seen your vote on Billy's page now, and also my own, and thank you very much; you're welcome. As for your exploit, it is proof that you are indeed much better now. There are plenty of relavant links, and it is well written. You may want to view the few changes that I made for you. My other pieces of advice are to avoid using brackets so much, and to make sure you get done what you want to do in fewer edits. A 'problem' at the moment is achievement boosting. In your case I don't think that it will be a problem, but for some reason valid edits are being throw into question because of those badges. All your edits are great though, so just keep going :). Profile too, but I do have one question... In the infobox are you pointing the LMG at yourself, or does it just look that way? TheGuardianCalligraphy.pngGuardianoftheWastesTag.png
Sorry I'm so slow at getting back. Are you on - or nearer to - the west coast of the USA because they come through in the middle of the night on my side? I think it's actaully pretty good of you to add us to your page :). Thanks a lot. I can't see an AK of any description on your profile; where do you mean? As for your edits, I really wouldn't say that to the admins, you'll just cause trouble for yourself ;). I looked through the projects for you and the New Vegas Super Mutants need an overview page, according to the page at least. That might be worth doing... If not see here for projects. All you have to do is sign up andd then do some edits. They are good fun too. If you have played Fallout 2 you could join mine too -> The Vault:Fallout 1 and 2 characters project and help me finish that :). TheGuardianCalligraphy.pngGuardianoftheWastesTag.png
Well, that was pretty poor of me. Especially as it is your avatar :). I wish you luck, and I'll always be knocking around if you need more help or direction, TheGuardianCalligraphy.pngGuardianoftheWastesTag.png

Thanks[edit source]

Thanks for informing me about the spelling mistake! :) Comedian1988 13:28, September 13, 2011 (UTC)

Hi![edit source]

Thanks for the correction, my english have gotten rusty. I'm well, how are you. Well of all the days it could rain it had to be the day Lonesome road comes out :S (I live in an old house that means old telephone wires and when it rains the internet goes down every once in a while.) Comedian1988 18:18, September 20, 2011 (UTC)

Lonesome Road ROCKS!! When you start make sure you've got 5-6 hours free, I personally couldn't stop until I finished it. Comedian1988 09:35, September 22, 2011 (UTC)
It only glitched in the point that I killed Ulysses for me, I had to do this part 3 times :S. What did you decide to do with the bombs? I bombed them both. Comedian1988 16:34, September 22, 2011 (UTC)
Hi, how are you doing? I left you a present but you didn't have a seperate section for that so I left it in the "Current Fallout: Wiki Friends" section. I hope it's ok! Comedian1988 08:34, September 28, 2011 (UTC)
I was going to add an All-American in your gifts but you already have one. Should I add it anyway? Btw, thanks for the Gobi! Comedian1988 09:43, September 28, 2011 (UTC)

"Guardian Angel" thats very clever and poetic! CDEagle147A "jesus cripes theres a thousand pigs!!" 11:16, September 28, 2011 (UTC).

How are you doing? It's been some time since we spoke. Comedian1988 10:03, October 12, 2011 (UTC)

Well, shit happens.. My old router used to crash every second day.. I'm good, my university will stay closed until next Monday. It's almost like a double summer this year. Comedian1988 12:30, October 15, 2011 (UTC)

You've done well[edit source]

Must say, you've really become a pretty damn good editor! Keep up the good work. :) Oh, and in case you aren't aware, I've applied for moderatorship (not promoting myself, just making sure members of the community are aware). Have a good day! -- Almighty Higgey (talk page) 03:20, October 16, 2011 (UTC)

Finesse tattoo[edit source]

Do you really have a finesse tattoo? If so, that's awesome! -- Almighty Higgey (talk page) 12:19, October 17, 2011 (UTC)

  • That is fucking awesome! Just make sure Bethesda don't discover it. Don't want to get sued. :P -- Almighty Higgey (talk page) 06:56, October 18, 2011 (UTC)

Thank you[edit source]

I'd just like to thank you personally for voting for me. Now that I'm a moderator, I'll do my very best to ensure that your vote doesn't go to waste. Thanks, Rocco and cheers! Almighty Higgey (talk page) 22:04, October 21, 2011 (UTC)

Congratulations[edit source]

Well done for making it onto the Leaderboard. Tough thing to do, especially with nearly 6000 other users on the site. You should be proud that you are 19th out of 6000+, that's the way I look at it :). My profile pageCome and say hello 14:27, October 23, 2011 (UTC)

Haha, yeah, I know what you mean. The best thing to do is just to edit, and then be surprised to get a page, then follow that line. The most current badge tracks, i.e. the ones that need the most attention are: Category:Fallout 3 robots and computers, Category:Fallout: New Vegas robots and computers, Category:Gun Runners' Arsenal weapons. Any of the pages inside there should give you a few to get more stable :). My profile pageCome and say hello 19:53, October 23, 2011 (UTC)
Then you're sorted ;). What do you think about getting a new signature? Maybe with a link to your talk as well as your user page? My profile pageCome and say hello 20:03, October 23, 2011 (UTC)
It's a good job I was offering then ;). Tell me what you want, like just text, images etc. and I'll mock a few up for you My profile pageCome and say hello 20:10, October 23, 2011 (UTC)

You could come in chat and we can discuss it quicker in PM? My profile pageCome and say hello 20:18, October 23, 2011 (UTC)

Okay, you can quit catching me up now ;). My profile pageCome and say hello 20:08, October 26, 2011 (UTC)

Your Edits[edit source]

Use the preview function to avoid having a bunch of consecutive edits on the same page where you add one or two words to a section. If you're gonna be editing a page on a large scale, edit the whole article. Editing it like you did on the page makes it look like you're boosting, which can get you banned. Just a heads up. Richie9999 05:18, October 29, 2011 (UTC)

That's not what I'm saying, what I'm saying is that it looks bad. The edits are legit but editing a page rapid fire consecutively where you add a word or two here or there, you should just edit the whole page, editing like you did on that page just looks bad, when you could say, click the edit button at the top of the page and edit all the parts at once. Richie9999 05:30, October 29, 2011 (UTC)

Listen, all I'm saying is that it looks bad, I wouldn't have bothered to contact you normally because I wouldn't care, but could be misconstrued as boosting, also preview your edits if you find yourself undoing your own edits. If your internet keeps crashing try avoiding all the multitasking and lightening the load it or some such. Richie9999 05:42, October 29, 2011 (UTC)

I'm not saying you're a child, nor do I mean to imply such. I'm just giving you a suggestion. Its not just me it seems off to, if it was just me I wouldn't bother with it. I only do this because others agreed with me. Don't take it personally. I know they're legit edits as well, because if they weren't it wouldn't be me contacting you to begin with. The fact that I'm even mentioning this is because I realize that they're legit edits, I just wanted to point out it looks bad and can be misconstrued as boosting. Richie9999 05:54, October 29, 2011 (UTC)

Hello[edit source]

Hi. Just wanted to say, you shouldn't get upset at Richie, he's just trying to look out for you. I agree with him that it looks bad when you have 10 edits in a row on the same page, all within minutes of each other. They are legit edits but they are usually minor and can easily be done all at once. Try to check the whole page for errors before editing, too. Again, no one is being rude or accusing you, so passing along advice. BILLYOCEAN Wanna talk? 05:58, October 29, 2011 (UTC)

Present[edit source]

Hey Rocco, thanks a lot. And unlike some of the gifts out there, I know this one actually means something. Thanks again, and just ask if you need any more :). My profile pageCome and say hello 10:29, October 29, 2011 (UTC)

Esther[edit source]

Hello GlassJAw667,

I reverted your edit on the Esther (GRA) page, and thought it'd be rude not to say why. I thought your change to the last sentence made it read as: "although it's a unique weapon, it adds x and y to DT and rads", as if to say other non-unique weapons do too. The previous word "uniquely" points out that it's the only weapon that affects these things at all.

Anyway, no hard feelings I hope. :-)

All the best, --FourWayDiablo(talk) 20:38, October 31, 2011 (UTC)
