Wasteland Wiki


Hi, welcome to Wasteland Wiki! Thanks for your edit to the Template:Copyrightbox page.

Please leave a message on my talk page if I can help with anything! -- Ausir (Talk) 11:03, 5 November 2009

Custom CSS[]

If we are to compete with Wikia, we need a custom CSS. Any chance of you importing what we used back on Wikia (presently still used in the templates) to work here? With your expertise, it should be pretty damn easy. Tagaziel 17:26, 14 March 2012 (UTC)

Thanks! I just gave you sysop rights. Ausir 12:24, 15 March 2012 (UTC)

RE: Forum threads[]

Currently intoxicated, will check it out in the morning. Cheers for making us look amazing. KristofferAG 00:33, 17 March 2012 (UTC)


Definitely, I'll try to get them set up ASAP. Ausir 13:53, 18 March 2012 (UTC)


Done. Btw, can you use it to change all instances of "w:c:fallout:" to "fallout" and of "w:c:wasteland" at The Vault to "wasteland:"? Ausir 14:08, 18 March 2012 (UTC)

You know, I think you are one seriously impressive guy. Are you secretly Midas or something? :P Φύλαξ [~μίλησε μου~] 00:07, 19 March 2012 (UTC)
Too true, we'd all hate that as much as you. Do you do this for a living though, or did you just learn it along the way? Φύλαξ [~μίλησε μου~] 20:19, 19 March 2012 (UTC)
So what is you do for a living then? I mean you are gone from the wiki for long periods of time. Do you own this 'Porter Engineering' or is that just a joke about what you do here? Φύλαξ [~μίλησε μου~] 18:49, 20 March 2012 (UTC)
That's completely understandable, and I'll avoid such topics in future. Sorry, I didn't realise. I thought it might have been a joke, but from your technical capabilities, it could have been that you were a computer engineer, so I also thought it might have been feasible. For me though, I will leave you to you, and that's fine by me 21 :) Φύλαξ [~μίλησε μου~] 22:59, 20 March 2012 (UTC)


Actually, we'll be testing Asirra as a captcha solution. At least for now, bots are not very good at distinguishing cats from dogs. Ausir 20:59, 19 March 2012 (UTC)

Skin issue[]

Wasteland Wiki Chrome.png

As you can see in the picture, there's a bit of an issue with the skin under Chrome (at least for me). The toolbox is in place of the arrow right to "view history" instead of to the right of it, which makes it impossible to select any of the options there. It works fine at The Vault for me, as well as here with other browsers. Ausir 01:04, 21 March 2012 (UTC)

Not using any gadgets, just default settings. I am on a Mac. Ausir 01:10, 21 March 2012 (UTC)
Looks like checking "Enable enhanced search suggestions" in preferences fixed it. But it is broken when unchecked. Ausir 01:11, 21 March 2012 (UTC)

Here you go:

And yeah, same issue at The Vault. Ausir 01:18, 21 March 2012 (UTC)

Works for me! Ausir 01:46, 21 March 2012 (UTC)

Here's the latest screenshot:

Armor effects[]

The rad suit is the only armor in the original Wasteland with effects other than AC, I believe. Ausir 01:05, 21 March 2012 (UTC)

Curse footer[]

Yeah, thanks for noticing! Ausir 11:34, 22 March 2012 (UTC)

Going away for a bit[]

Hi 21, I don't know if you saw what I said to Ausir: 'I thought I ought to tell you that I will be taking a break from the Vault and here for some time, until mid-June to be precise, in order to pass my exams. I thought I should tell you, but if you need me, just drop me a message, I'll still chack daily :)'. At least I can't pester you know though ;) Φύλαξ [~μίλησε μου~] 16:57, 23 March 2012 (UTC)

Thanks 21, I'll do my best :D Φύλαξ [~μίλησε μου~] 19:52, 23 March 2012 (UTC)

Help urgently requested[]

Hey Porter, I am aware that you may be busy, but you're pretty much the only person who can understand the complex templates. I need help. I tried to integrate Template:Pic anim (basically, a way to replicate the original WL animation engine in Wiki Code) into the Character Infobox, but opening the code left me shrieking in terror, curling into a fetal position. I can't comprehend it :( Tagaziel (talk) 17:35, 30 June 2013 (UTC)
