Why is the edit button locked? I created a page to put the Institute on but now I can\'t add it to the main index.

Nevermind, it seems to have been taken care of by someone.

Should we remove the "Fallout" from protagonist, factions and companion links? Since neither Commonwealth and Far Harbor citizens have them, it'd look a lot cleaner and nicer, IMHO.

Regarding the split into multiple pages - is that really necessary? No other character page in the series except New Vegas has that, and so far there's plenty of room left on the main page for these. Plus, the way it's divided up really screws with how spoilers are handled: I.E., shouldn't the tropes relating to post-reveal Shaun be under his entry as The Father, instead of The Father's entry having a single sentence directing people to Shaun's entry, where they're more likely to stumble across it by accident?

I prefer having the split already done giving more room for future explansion than having to make new splits in the future.

Though IMHO I'd put the faction NP Cs on the Faction page, not on the commonwealth citizen page.

Pairing it down to "Sole Survivor, Family, and Companions" and "Factions and People sections would be good enough.

Anyone have any objections to the image for the Sole Survivors on the character page?

It used to be

Now it's

I hate the new picture. it's just a literally mirrored picture of their backs and Dogmeat. It's pretty low quality too.

Another vote to revert. Or at least find a higher-quality version of the new one.

Dirty Blue 929 is the one who put it up, in case anyone is wondering.

I included my reasons for adding that when I reverted it a day or two ago (with no discussion since), but I'll leave it here for the record.

"The image in question is kind of crap. Besides, the other character pages for the series represent the protag facing away or otherwise obscured to visually indicate the whole "this character is customizable" thing."

I'd also like to mention that I was the one who added that first image all the way back at E3, and that I fully intended it as a placeholder. Oh, and that the new one is official art from bethesda that I painstakingly stitched together from two images (as in I had to draw the top of the sky on female side in MS Paint).

My only real issue with the image is that it is mirrored. Dogmeat being mirrored just makes the pic look bad, and that by itself draws attention away from the Sole Survivor. If the man and woman were shown individually with one on top of the other, it would draw less focus to the dogs.

Revert. It really does look awful, and was done without IP or anything.

I prefer the current. The former is non representative since the character don't have to look like that - and I dare say they don't for the majority of people. Plus it follows the pictures for the protagonists of all the other games.

If necessary open an IP thread.

What source do we have that the baby's name changes? If it's referring to the E3 presentation he was saying Codswearth has recorded dialogue for the player's possible names, not the baby

I admit I'm going on interpretation of the video here. He only mentions the 1000 recorded names part right when the video shows you attending to the baby, which segues right into the topic. I thought he brought this up right there to indicate that you choose your son's name.

He specifically says "you heard Codswearth say my name"

Ok then. I didn't hear that line clearly when I watched the vid. I blame the Dungeons And Dragons session going on the the dining room....

Feel free to correct.

Type the word in the image. This goes away if you get known.
If you can't read this one, hit reload for the page.
The next one might be easier to see.

How well does it match the trope?
