[Community -> Update] - More info on Game: Fallout: A Post Nuclear Role Playing Game | More info on Game: Fallout Tactics: Brotherhood of Steel | More info on Game: Fallout 3 (Van Buren) | More info on Game: Fallout 3 (Bethesda) | More info on Game: Fallout 2: A Post Nuclear Role Playing Game

We've decided to make a wiki for the Fallout universe. We don't have a name yet, but since a lot of people know about it, I figure I may as well announce it here. You can view the wiki here. I've also created a forum for discussing it here.

The sysops (administrators) for the wiki are:
Ausir
DarkUnderlord
Myself
Dan
Aptyp
Spazmo
King of Creation
Jinxed
We'll be adding to this list in the next few days, if you feel you'd make a good sysop, feel free to PM one of us or post a reply here.

One of the first things we need to do is decide on a name. As you can see from the front page of the wiki, some have already been suggested; feel free to add your own ideas.

If you're a bit lost on how to use a wiki, feel free to ask in the forum, or read the users manual.

As you'll probably notice, it's possible for someone to go in there and spam everything and delete the parts they didn't spam. Firstly, this spam is reversable so it can be undone easily. Secondly, IPs are stored and people can be banned from the wiki (and this site) if they decide they want to wreck everything, so I'm hoping that won't happen.

I think there's a lot of potential in this, so let's see what happens...

I think I'd make a fine sysop, depending on what exactly a sysop is supposed to do, of course?

Why, without sufficient admins, you could risk things such as people expressing opinions, being funny or, dare I say it, mentioning NMA *gasp*

Actually it's because administrating the thing and keeping track of all the changes is a bitch. People are also allowed to link anything that's Fallout related so if it's an article at NMA, you're more than welcome to link to it in an appropriate place in the wiki. Hell, write a page about the fan-sites if you want.

We should ban Kharn too. He's like the new Ozrat or something.

True, it's a matter of consistency. That snappy remark of mine just now is far worse than any action by Ozrat, ever. Hence and thusly, thus and hence.

PS: set Ozrat free icon_drunk

Yeah, we should actually have a picture of your rectum being gang-raped by 30 jiggaboos from a canibal-tribe in Africa.

Did you come to interzone for the beautiful boys?

I'd like you to meet a friend of mine. He specializes in sexual ambivalence.

We have all a lot of sysops because, like IRC, you can't really over moderate the thing.

Who wrote the characters? It's so... stiff. I know it's encyclopedia n'all, but short, simple sentences look... strange.

Aside from this, GG u fagz! Best idea since, uh, since last best idea.

It seems as though Naked_Lunch may well have riled dear Alex . . .

Other than that, the Wallout Fiki seems to be quite interesting. Now for the standard bollocks : Good work ! Keep up the good work ! Nice work ! Huzzah ! Woo yay ! icon_drunk

You can't over-admin a wiki, like Dan said. All a sysop can do over regular users is ban IPs/users and rollback spam to a previous, non-spammed version.

Actually, everyone can rollback spam, making it no more then a minor disturbance.

Spammers tend to be more tenacious than others, so spam will win.
