Porter Engineering wiki?

I know you're pretty busy here already, but when working on importing some of our templates into the Dragon Age wiki, I've been thinking of maybe starting a separate wiki with more generic versions of The Vault's templates, which could then be imported by other gaming wikis, or maybe even included in a starter version of gaming wikis from the get go. What do you think? Ausir(talk) 21:15, November 8, 2009 (UTC)

Yes, the default ones are enough for most people, but others will like to use more advanced templates designed specifically for games. For example, when copying The Vault templates to Dragon Age wiki it takes some effort to first get rid of some Fallout-specific stuff and make them more generic, as well as copying over all components etc. A generic, ready for import template pack would be neat for that.

Missing parameter on {{Infobox stat}} translation

I translated it into Norwegian, and used it on the Norwegian version of the Agility article. What's wrong is that the "extra" parameter isn't showing up. I can't seem to find out what I've done wrong. I'm guessing I've translated something somewhere wrong, or forgotten to do it, but as usual, I can't seem to find it. Here's the Stat template. -=KAG=-The VaultNO 08:25, November 16, 2009 (UTC)

Ahhh... No way, I even checked for that, I can't believe I missed it. Thanks -=KAG=-The VaultNO 09:20, November 16, 2009 (UTC)

Spacing out Templates

How do you space out templates so that they go one underneath the other? I'm having trouble with this for my userboxes on my user page. KingArmeryKingTalk 02:03, November 18, 2009 (UTC)

Okay, so how would I get it so that my userboxes and character box stay where they are but have the text appear underneath the userboxes? KingArmeryKingTalk 14:21, November 18, 2009 (UTC)
Okay, thanks for the help. I understood that {{clear}} would work but didn't realized I could do something like {{clear|left}}. KingArmeryKingTalk00:16, November 19, 2009 (UTC)

were is fathers books

in the fallout 3 game guide it says that there is an item called (fathers books) in vault 101 but i cant find it in the game or on this site do you know whats up with this item. FROM LEVI23

Main Page

What happened to it? There's random bits of code everywhere... Spoon Say Hi! 15:56, November 18, 2009 (UTC)

Ah, thanks. Spoon Say Hi! 19:53, November 18, 2009 (UTC)

Create article

Looks great, although I think I'd still keep the current article creation pages as well. I think they're clearer and more noob-friendly, and I think it will be a good idea to put the New Vegas one in the sitenotice once information on the game starts appearing, like we did with Mothership Zeta. However, the new ones at the top of editbox are cool in that they'll also be seen by people clicking on red links. Ausir(talk) 21:24, November 20, 2009 (UTC)

Primary attributes in FOBOS

Nope, it doesn't. Ausir(talk) 12:57, November 21, 2009 (UTC)

Quest item

Yeah, maybe it's best to remove it. Ausir(talk) 14:40, November 21, 2009 (UTC)

Notes help?

Hey Porter. I noticed that one or two of the notes in the Fallout 3 holodisks list were missing the little "cut" icon (Keller Journal, for one.), and I was wondering if the Crumbled Note was cut or not. I've been looking all over the Brass Lantern for the last 20 minutes for it. Nitty 18:45, November 21, 2009 (UTC)

I see it, but the chair isn't about to let me reach it. Nitty 18:59, November 21, 2009 (UTC)
Couldn't you use the twirly camera trick? Spoon Say Hi! 19:19, November 21, 2009 (UTC)
Well, thanks for the help. Nitty 19:09, November 21, 2009 (UTC)

TOC problems on Butch DeLoria page

I don't quite understand what's wrong, but when you click on "edit" for a section (as opposed to editing the whole page), it calls up the section below the one your trying to call up. Would you mind taking a look (and then explaining to me so I understand)? Thanks.--Gothemasticator 17:21, November 23, 2009 (UTC)

I found the problem. _TOC_ was present on the page goofing things up. Fixed now.--Gothemasticator 17:48, November 23, 2009 (UTC)

Town Hall

Hey Porter. Everytime I say that I think of Johnny Cash. Anyways, we have this article that was created and in my opinion, there should not be a separate article for something so small. This was evidenced by the Exhibit Vault that was in the Museum of Technology. Any part of something, such as Red's clinic, the town hall and the common area should be included in Big Town. Let me know. Thanks. --Kingclyde 06:21, November 27, 2009 (UTC)

Fallout 3 NPC Overhaul Project


I was wondering if I could do peer reviews on my own or if the original editor is supposed to ask first?

Also, when doing a peer review, is it common for the peer reviewer to correct any mistakes or adding minor things or should this be pointed out to the original editor so they can change it?

Gunjaer 14:58, November 27, 2009 (UTC)

Exactly the way I thought it would be, and how I prefer it. Thanks. Gunjaer 18:42, November 28, 2009 (UTC)

Totally different question this time, but:

I noticed that the Chinese Commando also has a section of the Dead chinese commando.

Considering they are two different NPC's isn't it wise to create a NPC page for both the Chinese Commando and the Dead Chinese Commando.

It keeps the overview a little better, and it seems easier to search for it.

Also a link to the other version on each page could be added to quickly get to the other NPC should you accidentally get on the wrong NPC page.

I also asked Ausir for his opinion.

Gunjaer 21:04, November 28, 2009 (UTC)

User Categories

I had no idea there actually were userboxes here, I've only seen people filling in the Userbox template themselves. Anyways, wikipedia categorizes their users after what userboxes they have. In my case, I'd be categorized into Category: Norwegian Users and Category: PC users. Do you think this is a bad idea or could I go ahead with this? -=KAG=-The VaultNO 19:15, November 29, 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, I've noticed that. I don't feel like starting a discussion now, though. Maybe later. -=KAG=-The VaultNO 07:09, November 30, 2009 (UTC)

Weekly digest

Is there anything to write about this week, or do you think we should skip it? Ausir(talk) 01:29, November 30, 2009 (UTC)

Well, I guess we could do one with just an editor spotlight, if you have time to write one (I don't at the moment). If not, I guess we can skip it. Ausir(talk) 01:58, November 30, 2009 (UTC)

Random Encounters

So, now that the pagename is changed, the category pages need changing, right? I tried looking at the category pages, but I am nervous I will screw something up if I try to make the appropriate changes.--Gothemasticator 04:05, November 30, 2009 (UTC)


I misread the image naming convention, that was only supposed to go on the userpage images. Whoops!--Kingclyde 04:08, December 1, 2009 (UTC)


Why are we eliminating the follower weapon pages? They are actually unique with their own set of stats. --Kingclyde 04:08, December 1, 2009 (UTC)

Gore is directed to non-playable weapons. I meant two things I just got distracted. There are plenty of non-player weapons that get a page, why not this. The GECK lists it under weapons. As for the follower weapons they do have their own stats. We should either keep seperate pages or at least mention the differences in the main article. I am for leaving pages as you can use a seperate infobox. Let me know what you think. I'm trying to go for consistancy.Kingclyde

Porter does more work than anybody

Holy cow! Well, I ain't rich, but over 40,000 edits gets you this. It's better than a cookie. Thanks for making this place actually work.--Gothemasticator 20:09, December 3, 2009 (UTC)

Ref id and base id

What are ref id and base id, how can i get them and , if I can't, can you? I need them for the NPC overhaul of Talon Company Merc.--Vault4 18:58, December 6, 2009 (UTC)

I have been told you and KingClyde are the only two who can get base id and ref id. If this is true, can you get them for Talon Company Merc please, as that is all the Infobox is missing?--Vault4 20:32, December 6, 2009 (UTC)

Should I still list Every single base id for Talon Company Merc?--Vault4 22:51, December 6, 2009 (UTC)

what do Base id's mean, are they for people who have Fallout 3 for the PC?--Vault4 23:11, December 6, 2009 (UTC)

Do you work for wikipedia because I checked the PorterBot and, on the talk page, it mentioned you operate it.--Vault4 12:57, December 7, 2009 (UTC)

O.k. I will that in mind. I was just not sure if I had got it right or not. Will some of the users on this wiki actuallt work for Wikipedia?--Vault4 13:23, December 7, 2009 (UTC)

How do you know about competitions like GOG? Do you mean Ausir actually works for Wikipedia?--Vault4 13:38, December 7, 2009 (UTC)


Sure, I have no issues with the page itself, as long as the main URL still leads to the main page, not to MyHome. Ausir(talk) 13:51, December 7, 2009 (UTC)

Don't know about you, but for me, all links to MyHome still redirect to the main page. Ausir(talk) 02:28, December 9, 2009 (UTC)
Shouldn't they lead to ?redirect=no instead? Ausir(talk) 21:06, December 13, 2009 (UTC)
It does add ?redirect=no when you left-click it, but not when you middle-click it to open it in a new tab, which is what I've always done until now. Ausir(talk) 11:35, December 14, 2009 (UTC)

Vault4 wanting to help with Project

Mothership Zeta on NPC Overhaul Project has been completed (All but Peer Reviews). The only 2 to have done anything on it are Shadowrunner56 and Vault4. Why don't you send out messages to users telling them about the Overhaul Project, then more users might help and it can be completed quickly. If you don't have time to do this, give me the names of some users who may be able to help with the project and I will leave a message on their talk pages.--Vault4 15:15, December 7, 2009 (UTC)

Should I ask people if they want to 'peer review' the characters for Mothership Zeta to tie it up as fully finished?--Vault4 16:40, December 7, 2009 (UTC)

Can you get the dialogue for Angel Eyes because that is the main thing missing from the infobox--Vault4 17:12, December 7, 2009 (UTC)

Can you please revert what I did on Bill's Infobox please, sorry to ask but I either don't know how to do it or simply can't do it.--Vault4 19:39, December 7, 2009 (UTC)

So will I recieve a badge for my contributions to both your NPC project and Ausir's Fallout 1 & 2 project? also, have you reverted what I did on Bill and can you check Bob (tree) to see if I did the Peer Review right?--Vault4 22:01, December 7, 2009 (UTC)

I meant on the project page you are leader of, Fallout 3 NPC Overhaul Project.--Vault4 22:23, December 7, 2009 (UTC)

This is going to sound lame, how do I take pictures in the GECK? Is it possible and how do I find refid's and baseid's?--Kingclyde 05:59, December 8, 2009 (UTC)

Ok, I've fingered out how to take pics. Most of the ones I'm getting seem to be sharper than the current image. Should I replace the ones with a noticeable difference? --Kingclyde 07:01, December 8, 2009 (UTC)
If you could find the time, could you give the four Operation Anchorage weapon images a transparent background, Porter? Nitty Tok. 22:27, December 8, 2009 (UTC)
Thanks! Nitty Tok. 01:50, December 9, 2009 (UTC)

I'm using the snipping tool in Windows 7. How would I go about making the images brighter? I see you already went and replaced my image. I'm not sure what the difference is. Did I do something wrong? Could you at least tell me what I did wrong and what I can do to fix it before just replacing it. I want to make it transparent like what nitty wanted but the image that replaced mine shows a brown background. I do wish to learn this stuff if I am going to make better contributions here.--Kingclyde 02:21, December 9, 2009 (UTC)
I just was able to brighten the image in the office photo tool thingy.--Kingclyde 02:25, December 9, 2009 (UTC)

Hooray for the anti-rte bot!

T-45d or T-51b

"In addition, a specialized body suit is required to be worn underneath the T-45d's armored shell in order to facilitate linking the armor's servos to the wearer's own motions and to make the armor more bearable because of its heat dissipation problems."

this is form the T-45d page, what is the armour type in bold meant to be, it was T-41b, someone changed it to T-51b, but judging by the recon armour article it should be T-45d, but could you please clarify. Thanks. - RASICTalk 22:35, December 9, 2009 (UTC)

Thanks, The T-45d was picked up as wrong, it's just it looked as if it could be a mistaken 51 or 45, so I wanted to be check. - RASICTalk 18:09, December 10, 2009 (UTC)

News policy

I think we could use a news policy page, describing e.g. what can (or should) be posted as separate news, what should be only included in weekly digests or weekly Fallout tidbits, and what should not be posted at all. What do you think? Ausir(talk) 14:49, December 10, 2009 (UTC)

I wouldn't really restrict the content of non-news blogs, aside from offensive material etc. They're basically just an extension of the user pages. If we have an off-topic forum, I don't see why we couldn't have off-topic blogs once in a while (hell, I even posted one myself sometime ago, about the Dragon Age event in London I was at). Most blog posts are Fallout or wiki related anyway, and any other ones rarely ever happen, so I don't see the need to regulate it. Ausir(talk) 15:02, December 10, 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, agreed on that part. Ausir(talk) 15:47, December 10, 2009 (UTC)

I think that articles about Fallout games like editorials, reviews, etc. on various sites (except for maybe stuff like "first exclusive Fallout: New Vegas review") should go to Fallout tidbits posts, unless when they contain new quotes regarding the game by the developers themselves (like the GameSpot one with quotes by Emil Pagliarulo) - then they warrant a separate post. Ausir(talk) 16:00, December 10, 2009 (UTC)

Broken Editor

I am trying to edit Brain but there is no option to save changes, has it been moved with the update?--Vault4 17:56, December 10, 2009 (UTC)

Is there a help page for moving messages in your talk page to an archive, I tried to found a page for it, but I could not. If there is could you provide a link to it?--Vault4 20:58, December 10, 2009 (UTC)

Cheers, mate. My Talk Page looks a lot better. Can you check the GECK to get a better quality picture of Ardin Buckner? Do you think I am asking too many questions?--Vault4 21:24, December 10, 2009 (UTC)

Thanks. How do you get the GECK?--Vault4 21:34, December 10, 2009 (UTC)

Sos. Is there any page for art work of fallout 3, because I searched for Art work and nothing came up to do with art.--Vault4 21:58, December 10, 2009 (UTC)

Sorry to keep leaving messages, but I tried to put an image in a user box, but it just says the file name instead of showing the picture. Could you look on my user page and see what I have done wrong. The last time a similar thing happened but Crazy sam10 fixed it.--Vault4 10:59, December 11, 2009 (UTC)

We don't cover the setting of Jason Mical's Fallout PnP or any other fan-made Fallout RPGs. But we do cover unofficial works by developers of Fallout games (well, one for now), like JE Sawyer's PnP RPG. Especially given that he's now the lead designer of FNV. Of course, unless any of it resurfaces in FNV, it gets the appropriate non-canon template. Ausir(talk) 12:30, December 12, 2009 (UTC)

Vault4 has found his first vandal is a vandal, can this person be blocked from editing on The Vault? Do I have the ability to block them?

O.k. I just don't want to seem annoying by only saying 'So-and-so is a vandal.' Is there a way to, on the history bit of a page (To see what a user has changed), is there a way to compare what has been wrote/changed/deleted on a single page?--Vault4 17:30, December 17, 2009 (UTC)

A. How can I tell if something is Spam? B. Can I create a bot?--Vault4 17:41, December 17, 2009 (UTC)

Another Vandal replaced large chunks of Sonora Cruz with the word BEANER. I have undone the vandalism, but just wanted to let you know.--Vault4 20:45, December 17, 2009 (UTC) P.S. If you and Ausir decide to use one of the names given for the weekly digest, maybe you could give them a mention for renaming it?

What has happened to my sidebar? Instead of saying, e.g., '5 minutes ago' it says something like '18469 seconds'. Is this just my P.C or something else?--Vault4 20:09, December 18, 2009 (UTC)

"Games" Template?

Hello, I am an administrator on the BioShock Wiki. I really love the features you have at the Vault, and I have been trying to add some of them to BioShock Wiki. One thing I noticed was the Template:Games to make a small icon appear at the top right of each page. Unfortunately, I am having trouble migrating that over since I don't know what parts of the Vault's common.css/common.js are needed to make it work.

If it's not too much trouble, would you mind telling me which parts are needed? (or just point me to somewhere I can find information about how to make a template like that) ~ Gardimuer { ʈalk } 17:25, December 18, 2009 (UTC)

One more question: is it absolutely necessary to have two separate templates to make it work? Would combining them not work with the css/js code? ~ Gardimuer { ʈalk } 18:00, December 18, 2009 (UTC)
Thank you so much! It works perfectly! ~ Gardimuer { ʈalk } 20:04, December 18, 2009 (UTC)

World object infobox

I think maybe we should have an infobox for world objects. Do they have base ID/ref ID (in case of the unique ones) in FO3? Or should we just use Template:Infobox item for them, like at Megaton Atomic Bomb? Ausir(talk) 09:57, December 21, 2009 (UTC)

FO1/2 item questions

I'm adding some missing FO1 and 2 items and just wondering about some issues:

  • Do you think that if an item was originally intended to be used in FO1 and cut from the final version, but preserved in the game's files, and kept there even in FO2, should it be included in both FO1CC and FO2CC categories or just FO1CC (same might apply to FO3CC items kept in FNV files)?
  • Should items used in FO1 and unused in FO2, but still kept in the game's files be in the FO2CC category (same might apply to FO3 items unused in FNV but kept in the files)?
  • Do you think we should add a "files" field to item infoboxes, to include all information from http://www.fanmadefallout.com/fo2-items/ (e.g. 00000117.pro and FLOWER.frm), as well as maybe some from the FO3 files? I think it might be of use to the modders. Ausir(talk) 22:22, December 21, 2009 (UTC)

Fallout 3 random encounter question

In my quest to get Outcasts to spawn at every B-type location I've come across a new problem. Sometimes the area won't spawn anything and this was after force-spawning all the unique encounters.

I remember you saying something about the game resetting the spawns so they can become available again on the talk page. What do you mean by that? -- -Jet-

That would probably explain why I got the Outcasts again after I triggered the rest of the encounters. It makes sense. -- -Jet-

Thanks. :) I agree that moving Specific NPC, Quest, and Location listings to their respective pages is a good next step. I really took this on as a preliminary step before launching on another round of NPC project work. I want to rewrite some sections of the project page to emphasize some more specific direction on how to handle some article sections. And, in approaching that, Bugs were more and more on my mind. With a revamped main Bugs page (and after moving the aforementioned sections off the main page), I can now offer some more concrete direction on how to evaluate the Bugs sections of NPC article pages. Soon and very soon...--Gothemasticator 23:45, January 3, 2010 (UTC)

Schematics components list

You claim the edit I made repeated something listed in another page. Can you show me exactly where?

I have not found an ALPHABETICALLY sorted list of schematics components, or one that maps the proft potential. I personally find that list very useful when i'm transferring items to my locker or when selling so as i scroll through my inventory alphabetically, i can easily refer to that list to see what items are used to make high-profit weapons.

I put a lot of effort into that list, it's formatted and linked to all of your standards, and I find it useful. My guess is some other people will find it useful as well.

It's getting very frustrating that some of the mods on this wiki don't encourage the expansion of content. I'm wondering if it's worth the effort to attempt to add improvements to this wiki if i'm always doing to have my changes undone.

Please respond.


Thanks for the advice. I've moved the undone section to the price-to-weight page. Sorry about the mod(s) generalization! JamaicanJon 22:53, January 16, 2010 (UTC)

Van Buren design documents

That's great! Sure, it's definitely worth starting a project (even if it would probably just mean me and Grizzly joining the effort). BTW, the additional Bloomfield files are also worth converting, since they contain full dialogues of their respective characters, as well as info on all skill checks, conditions etc. Ausir(talk) 21:32, January 18, 2010 (UTC)

Tibbets Prison design document#Contents - what do you think? Ausir(talk) 02:15, January 19, 2010 (UTC)
Sounds good. Ausir(talk) 20:34, January 21, 2010 (UTC)
Having them as subpages of design doc pages is OK IMHO. And yeah, I'd leave them in one piece as well. Ausir(talk) 21:09, February 1, 2010 (UTC)

Jericho vs. New Canaan

since the leaked versions of New Canaan and Jericho design documents are in conflict with each other and that the locations were merged only because of time constraints, I generally consider the New Canaan version to be "true" in Van Buren articles and mention changes after its merger with Jericho only under notes. Just wondering, do you think this is how it should be, or the other way around? I think the fact that the original New Canaan was written by J.E. Sawyer who is now in charge of New Vegas is another argument for giving New Canaan priority over Jericho. It's also more consistent with other design documents. Ausir(talk) 19:20, January 21, 2010 (UTC)

Well, I don't think that Jericho being later is that important - after all, the game was not finished anyway. And the conversion of the Jericho document is not even finished - some of the stuff there still refers to the old version, with cultists living in the caves near the plant and references New Canaan as still being around. In comparison, New Canaan is a much more fleshed out document. Ausir(talk) 19:52, January 21, 2010 (UTC)
There is another possible solution - in one of the possible pre-merge endings "Most of New Canaan dies out and only the plant is left standing, which becomes the new town of Jericho" - maybe we should just tread the merged version as taking place after this? Ausir(talk) 19:56, January 21, 2010 (UTC)
It would mean ignoring some dates and just describing the events chronologically, since the dates are in conflict here, even if the events themselves are not. Anyway, I'll keep with having New Canaan as the "main" version and Jericho under a separate section. The biggest reason for me is actually the fact that a lot of the other design documents reference New Canaan and there are quests in other documents that involve the original version of New Canaan, while none of them references Jericho in any way other than the original desalination plant under New Canaan control. Sure, the other locations would have been modified appropriately eventually in the final version, but for consistency's sake I'd go with New Canaan given that the design docs we have now were not. Ausir(talk) 20:10, January 21, 2010 (UTC)

Fallout Bible

By the way, don't know if you noticed but the Fallout Bible conversion to wiki format is not actually complete - it was pretty tedious to do it manually so some of the installments are unfinished. Could you perhaps convert these like the design docs? Ausir(talk) 11:36, January 24, 2010 (UTC)

I made a project page for it. Ausir(talk) 14:53, January 24, 2010 (UTC)

I'd leave it in one piece. Maybe split into 4 parts? Ausir(talk) 21:20, January 26, 2010 (UTC)

Maybe two pieces then. I think it's best not to split the locations anyway. Ausir(talk) 21:35, January 26, 2010 (UTC)

Some policing please

Is it possible for you to tell MikealGrizzly to stop being such a douche and ruining forum threads? He's supposed to be an admin, but all he does is cause arguments, shitcan peoples suggestions simply because he doesn't believe in them and generally derail the entire thread. Other people have commented on it already through the various threads and it is too annoying. I'd expect that from a troll or something, but for that behaviour to come from an admin is unacceptable. Please tell him to tone his comments down and if he does feel the need to shit on peoples input, at least have the courtesy to actually contribute something to the thread in the same post. We get it, he doesn't like Fallout 3, why cant he let others discuss it without having to endure his dislike for the game or its developers.

New Recent Changes in table

Hi Porter, I would like to ask you something. Basically I thought it would be better if the Recent Changes were in a table. It would be more organized and easier to read through too, costing less time. Now I decided to ask you (I have no idea who is good enough to do it) if you could possibly do this, or know someone who can.

Problem with translating plural in templates

Long time no see! It sure has been a while since I last asked you a question, so it's about time.

I'm trying to translate the Overviewintro template to Norwegian, but I ran into the same problem regarding plurals. When we do plurals in Norwegian, usually, the word doesn't change, unless it's an irregular word. We don't add anything, it just stays the same. "Ett våpen" - "Mange våpen", "Ett klesplagg" - "Mange klesplagg" ("One Weapon - Many weapons", "one piece of clothing" - many pieces of clothing").

I'm wondering how I remove the s at the end? If you could take a quick look here, that'd be great. -=KAG=-The VaultNO 12:11, February 4, 2010 (UTC)

I don't think it is, we won't find out until later, but the image is poorly cut and the only reason it looks like it is, is due to the smoke.Birdie94jb 17:41, February 4, 2010 (UTC)

I'd use the website one. Ausir(talk) 23:38, February 4, 2010 (UTC)

New Vegas will definitely be canon - I don't see how it wouldn't be. As for adding the spoiler tag through {{Games}}, I don't know. I'd rather keep it as is, since it will allow us to add the spoiler tags to sections - I wouldn't want the whole NCR article to be tagged as having spoilers, only the section regarding their Vegas activities. Ausir(talk) 01:52, February 5, 2010 (UTC)

BTW, {{FNV}} includes both the spoiler tag and {{upcoming}}, so there's no need to add {{upcoming}} separately. Ausir(talk) 01:55, February 5, 2010 (UTC)
Well, given the proximity of Vegas to the areas of FO2 and VB, I think there will be more such articles. And I guess you're right, maybe it's better to keep "upcoming" and "FNV" separate. Ausir(talk) 02:05, February 5, 2010 (UTC)

Why did you remove "Create new article" from the sidebar? In my opinion it should stay there, as it provided quick access to each of the game-specific tabs, which are IMO more accessible to newcomers to the links on top of the new article window. Ausir(talk) 01:58, February 16, 2010 (UTC)

Belle Pic

I don't want to strangle you. On the contrary, I've been circling around the need for something much like what you propose. I like it. On another note, regarding bugs... I wonder if we can do away with bugs sections on NPC pages altogether. Real bugs are almost always location- or quest-related, and the bugs that are attached to NPCs are general to all NPCs. Follower bugs are common to all followers. Common bugs can be contained on the big bugs page and could appear on the NPC and Follower overview pages. What do you think?--Gothemasticator 07:07, February 16, 2010 (UTC)


Well, for articles with this many icons I think we could get rid of icons for canceled games aside from Van Buren, which I think is more notable than the rest, as well as of JES, and perhaps add a "More..." icon at the end that would link to #Appearances, which would have a more detailed list of appearances. What do you think? Ausir(talk) 10:58, February 16, 2010 (UTC)

Well, the Brotherhood of Steel appears in all games, but not in the webcomic (OK, just one example, but still). :) I'd generally prefer to keep the individual icons, anyway. Ausir(talk) 12:31, February 16, 2010 (UTC)
The "all games" icon sounds like a good option for now, but what if e.g. the BoS does not appear in the next Fallout game after FNV? We'd need to revert to having to show icons for individual games. Ausir(talk) 12:57, February 16, 2010 (UTC)


Looks good. Although for characters who are involved in quests I'd also have a section for each of these quests. Ausir(talk) 18:40, February 16, 2010 (UTC)

And I'd prefer it as it is now - one or so paragraph of summary of the character's role in the quest, with {{main}} linking to the quest page itself. I think it gives you a better overview of the character in question, while not going into quest walkthrough details. Ausir(talk) 19:09, February 16, 2010 (UTC)
Well, for me the quest details is exactly what should go in the interactions sections, as it can details various outcomes etc. depending on your actions, which for me would feel out of place in the more in-universe background sections. Background for me was exactly for details that do not change based on your actions, while everything else should always go under interactions. That's how I've always used it myself. Ausir(talk) 19:26, February 16, 2010 (UTC)
Sounds better, but I still prefer not to have to read through the whole quest page to have a general idea of the role of a character I'm reading about in each quest. Ausir(talk) 20:03, February 16, 2010 (UTC)

So, what's with redirecting minor quest pages to NPC pages? Is this part of a new grand scheme? --Gothemasticator 17:52, February 20, 2010 (UTC)

Achievement/trophy info on Fallout 3 quests

I don't really see the point in removing it. Sure, it might be a bit redundant, but I think it's relevant enough to the quests, available at a glance. I don't have a problem with redundancy as long as the info is where the reader looks for it. And for most add-ons, aren't all achievements awarded for quests? I don't think it makes sense to list them double on each page. Ausir(talk) 18:57, February 20, 2010 (UTC)

Dialogue Files

Would it be possible to use your bot to convert dialogue file pages to use {{notebox}} instead of the current layout (like I just did at COW.MSG? I think it would look much better (and wouldn't have the scroll bar in the text box like they do now). Ausir(talk) 22:58, February 20, 2010 (UTC)

Fallout 3 player housing article

I don't understand what's going on with that page.

  • When I click on the article, I see the old, non-tabled version.
  • When I click on history and go through the recent several versions, I don't see anything about changing it away from a table format.
  • When I use compare versions and click on current version, I see the non-table version.
  • But if I click on the version before that, I see the table version.
  • Then, if I click back on the current version, I see the the table again.
  • Finally, when I click on article again, I still see the non-table version.

So confused... Any idea what's going on? Thanks.--Gothemasticator 05:23, February 22, 2010 (UTC)

The images in the Van Buren design docs weren't actual ingame screenshots or concept art; the designers used images of movie/game characters or creatures to give people an impression of what they imagined the character/creature to look like. So no, the image is not fake (it's the one used in the design document) and it's perfectly possible you're right about its origin :) -- Porter21 (talk) 10:11, February 24, 2010 (UTC)

New Vegas source template?


Nitty recommended me here to run this idea by you. Originally posted by me on his talk page:

I was looking at some New Vegas pages which don't contain much information (or even a proper name) such as Virgin Mary Pistol. I can only imagine such a page would exist as a placeholder for whatever we find out the weapon to be so as to not have to make a new article later on. My problem isn't with doing that (it's good to be proactive), but rather with the New Vegas pre-release template as it stands.

Right now it says "The following is based on Fallout: New Vegas pre-release information and may contain spoilers."

I think that rather than having this template only say that the article may contain spoilers, it should also be more explicit about the fact that it's prerelease information, subject to change, similar to the source templates. I just don't think only putting pre-release information in bold is sufficient for conveying that the information is not yet canonical, especially since most of it is taken from uncited magazine articles, and might even be completely cut before the game releases. My recommendation would be to add something like:

"The following is based on Fallout: New Vegas pre-release information which is subject to change as the release date approaches and has not yet been confirmed by canon sources."

This would be kind of like the template Wikipedia puts at the top of it's pages concerning current events which serves as a disclaimer.

Anyway, just an idea.


Socash11 13:46, February 25, 2010 (UTC)

Sure, I agree. I wanted to convey the fact that whatever information we have is still tentative and not yet part of the established Fallout continuity. Considering how far we are from the release date and the amount of interpretation used in some of the articles (which result from picking apart every word written in the magazine previews), it seems necessary to acknowledge the potential inaccuracy of the information we have so far on New Vegas. I'm not entirely familiar with the format for writing these source boxes, so it would be best left to someone else to make up a shortened version. Thanks for hearing my suggestion.
Socash11 02:58, February 26, 2010 (UTC)


Sweet. I like new toys. I'd like to play with it a little and then think about how to roll it out (to admins as well as in practice). Right now I am dog-sick, so am not going to try doing any brain-work that nyquil might interfere with. You know, stuff like implementing a new template, or standing up. Thanks for the template.--Gothemasticator 08:43, February 28, 2010 (UTC)

Browser cache refresh not changing anything. Neither is adding the wiki-cache thing you showed me to the web address. ??--Gothemasticator 06:54, March 2, 2010 (UTC)
I just checked the NPC project page and all the progress tables are uncollapsed also. And no button to recollapse them. Could it be an Internet Explorer 8 issue? I've just started using it recently to check it out. I'll open up another browser and see what's what.--Gothemasticator 06:57, March 2, 2010 (UTC)
Well, that's just weird. Chrome loads the navboxes as fully open. The "hide" button is visible, but the cursor becomes a text cursor when hovered over the button, and placement is real picky when clicking. The boxes do collapse, though.--Gothemasticator 07:00, March 2, 2010 (UTC)

Tent and Sniper Vista?

On the talk page, you mentioned the game guide. Did you get one? Nitty Tok. 00:51, March 3, 2010 (UTC)

Coolio. I've got the GotY guide. I assume that the guide is where we got the unmarked quest names? Should I move them to their names according to the guide? Nitty Tok. 19:43, March 3, 2010 (UTC)
On the subject of the guide, which version of the guide are we supposed to use now? Nitty has the newest version while I assume you and I as well as Gothemasticater have the older version. There appear to be some differences between them. For example, the section Nitty where he found Sticky's name as per the guide was on Page 98, where in the old guide it is about "The Waters of Life" quest. Just let me know. I'm sure for the most part they should be the same, but do I need to upgrade my guide or not. --Kingclyde 20:06, March 3, 2010 (UTC)
Well, I'd say the GOTY guide is the preferred version as it is the expanded and corrected version of the original one. If there's conflicting info between the two, the GOTY guide's version should take precendence (although I share your opinion that most likely there won't be that much conflicting info). -- Porter21 (talk) 20:50, March 3, 2010 (UTC)

I'm truly confused

I talked to Ausir and we are using in-game names vs. names that only occur in the guide. Am I wrong yet again or did you guys come up with another conclusion after I moved it. I asked him about 5 mins before I moved it. (This is about Sticky vs Sticky Hands) --Kingclyde 11:58, March 4, 2010 (UTC)

NPC interactions bot

Hope I catch you before you sneak off again. I'm wondering about the interactions section - specifically the wording of the subsections. "Related quests" has been encouraging people just to list the quests, which is redundant. I'd favor something more descriptive, like "quest involvement summaries." Likewise, "other interactions" and "effects of the player character's actions" are redundant simply because no one can tell what belongs in one or the other. I favor "non-quest interactions" to solve the problem. Take a look at A Wanderer to see it in action.

Unless you object, could you send your bot to make adjustments?--Gothemasticator 09:28, March 19, 2010 (UTC)

Template question

Is it possible to make the quotations template display as a link? I'm toying with the idea of moving NPC quotes to their own page. I would do away with the individual quotes sections and just have one juicy quote at the top of each NPC page using the template. It would help navigation if you could click on that quotation and be linked to the relevant quote article page. See Vault4's new Vault 87 Super Mutant Quotes page and the old Vault 87 super mutant pages for reference. (I still don't know if this is a good idea, but I'm interested in whether it's possible.)--Gothemasticator 11:02, March 21, 2010 (UTC)

Private messaging on a wiki?

Is it possible? I know that some users are categorized as having confirmed email addresses, so I suspect that the capability exists to send them a message via email without actually needing to display or know their email address. But, aside from the very few, like Ausir, who publicly display their email address, I can find no way to privately message. I'm loathe to ask for or provide email addresses in as public a place as this wiki. Looking for an alternative. Thanks.--Gothemasticator 19:55, March 22, 2010 (UTC)


Yeah, while the cat's away the mice will play, and all that. We've been busy. Thanks for the messaging info. It's always nice to get confirmation when I can't find something. It's tough to know if I'm just not finding it or if it doesn't exist.--Gothemasticator 20:24, March 22, 2010 (UTC)

Dynamically resizing of images?

Tables can dynamically resize across the width of a page. Can images? I understand that it's trickier, because you have to specify how exactly the image is changed as the page width changes. But, is it doable on a wiki page at all? If it is, is css capable of doing it, or does it require javascript or something else more advanced?--Gothemasticator 17:45, March 23, 2010 (UTC)

getting specials at 10

i was wondering (since i have already collected all of the bobble heads, lucky 8 ball, and the ant sight) if i had all my specials lowered by a side affect of something and then got the almost perfect perk at the same time, would my specials go to 10 when my side affects were off?

price of dlcs

the dlcs for fallout 3 have been reduced in price to 4.99 on xbox live. i changed all the information to reflect this and you changed it back to stating that it costs 9.99. can i ask why?

Charon's Shotgun

I noticed that Nitty made it a redirect. I thought we discussed this a long time ago about leaving this as one of the only follower weapons to have it's own page. There are major differences between it and the Combat Shotgun. Unlike Jericho's, Butch's and all others follower weapons where it is just a damage rating difference, this functions different etc. Let me know what you think. Same with the SatCom Nuclear Strike. It has been redirected to Non player weapons and it is completely unique. It came with notes on different things. Ausir referred me to you. No big rush. --Kingclyde 18:34, April 2, 2010 (UTC)

Because a change in attack animation is really something that can't be explained with one sentence?

Well, before deleting the articles information and creating a redirect, maybe someone should add the info to the other articles first under variants. That would make more sense than just deleting it. --Kingclyde 23:26, April 2, 2010 (UTC)
It would probably be best to start a forum discussion to settle this once and for all. Personally, I think NPC-only and script weapons do not need own pages. Currently I'd prefer listing NPC-only variants of base weapons on the base weapon's page in table format (e.g. Charon's Shotgun would go on Combat Shotgun (Fallout 3), with the redirect pointing to the table entry) and putting script weapons like the SatCom "launcher" on a separate page ("Fallout 3 script weapons" or something). It's different from what I said before and how I used to do it myself, but currently it's my favourite solution. Just my opinion though. -- Porter21 (talk) 01:04, April 4, 2010 (UTC)


I would like to report a problem on my user page. I could not find the "Report a problem on this page" when i was on my page so that is why i have to ask you instead. Anyway, i recently added a picture to the infobox and the whole page screwed up. This has happened twice before, and i could fix it myself, but now i can't because everytime i try to fix it now, it just gets worse. Can you please fix it. Tezzla Cannon 17:10, April 9, 2010 (UTC)
