Part of the Arqade campaign for common sense, a general positive attitude, and new user outreach. A little less policing, a little more focus on providing content.

comment Soloing Dungeons or How To Stop Those Pesky NPCs From Tagging Along
@JohnJudd I believe that unless a conversation option allows it, there is no way to prevent temporary quest followers from not going with you on their related quests. Console commands might stop them from following you but I believe this will cause bugged quests, due to the presence of the quest followers being required for some parts of the quests to trigger. Could you mention in your question what specific quest(s) and NPC followers you're having trouble with?

comment Does Fallout: New Vegas support character slots?
Note that regardless of the wording, mod recommendation questions per se are not off-topic here. (As per meta.gaming.stackexchange.com/questions/6828/… and meta.gaming.stackexchange.com/questions/5547/… )

comment What are the numbers next to player names?
@Frank I said nothing about equating the quality of a post to its number of upvotes. Like I said earlier, quality is subjective, so it shouldn't be used as a deciding factor in this case. What I'm saying is: this question was asked first, got an upvoted answer first, and hence, should be the original. There's nothing subjective about that.

comment What is this Gen system in multiplayer and how does it work?
The older question already had an upvoted answer before this question was asked, though (it currently has 5 upvotes). I believe this question's duplicate status should remain. Users who deem the original question to be low quality could edit it to be better.

comment What are the numbers next to player names?
@Frank My argument is: this question's older and already has an upvoted answer. (currently 5 upvotes). We are establishing a bad precedent if we allow newer duplicate questions of older already answered questions simply because they are deemed to be better quality by a user. The 'quality' of a question is subjective. Its upvote count isn't. Users who deem the original question to be low quality could edit it to be better.

comment What are the numbers next to player names?
@Frank Are you saying that this question is the one that should have been closed? This older question already has an answer with 5 upvotes. While at the time of writing of that meta post, "It should also be noted that [the older question] doesn't have an upvoted or accepted answer." Also, as per the top-voted answer in that meta post, "the first question to reach that criteria (either a definitively upvoted answer and/or an accepted answer) should be treated as the 'master' question and all others closed as a duplicate of that question."

@svick That question was asked after this one. The dupe should probably be the other way around.

comment How to effectively use the saw to open deposit boxes and doors?
I can confirm that this does work, and should be taken advantage of whenever possible. I can open deposit boxes with one click if I have less than 25% health with the Berserker skill.

comment How to remove mod shouts Skyrim
@user75920 You might want to edit that comment into your question, and edit the title to better describe the issue. The "mod shouts" part of the title is confusing, as the shout you got is not from a mod.

@Xetalim Load a save before you used the player.placeatme command, then try the prid <RefID>, moveto player and resurrect 1 console commands instead.

comment How do I find my follower if and when they leave me?
A heads-up on the placeatme console command: Using that command will instantly summon an instance (a copy) of an object or NPC at your position. Not recommended for named objects or NPCs. That command creates a new copy of an object/actor in the world; using it with named objects/NPCs can result in duplicates, which could cause glitches and other unwanted game behavior. Use the prid <RefID> and moveto player commands instead.
