I don't know what the policy is here, but generally on wikis, you name the article of a person as what they are know as best. It would be fine to include the "Jr." in the initial bolded name, but I suggest not having it in the article title, especially since he is almost never referred to as such. M. H.

Especially now that Bob Newbie Sr. is called Robert Newbie. --Bob Newbie is kl 09:21, 21 June 2009 (UTC)

his wife, his parents... can be resurrected using SimPe."[edit source]

Is that possible?

How can I do so? I attempted to do that several times, and he and his relatives just won't show up in the game.

I think it's because his original character data has been deleted, i attempted to re-do Bob Newbie, but his beard and hair are somewhat different from the ones in the game.

I attempted to do it with "Bob Sim" from the Tutorial Neighborhood, and he also can't be resurrected without being recreated from scratch, and his red beard color is more red than the one in the game.

So, it is really possible to resurrect Bob Newbie + Newbie & Simovitch family? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) - Sign your comments with ~~~~

Dark-skinned Bob and Betty[edit source]

Shouldn't them have separate articles like the Malcolm Landgraabs and Bella Goths? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) (UTC) - Please sign your comments with ~~~~

I've never thought of that. I think that seems legit, but I want to make sure if others think otherwise. Nikel Talk Vote! 10:09, May 31, 2013 (UTC)
I'd be fine with moving them into separate articles. Ѧüя◎ґ (talk) 13:39, June 11, 2014 (UTC)
I also think there should be seperate articles for the different versions of Betty and Bob Newbie. In most games, Bob is a white man with male-pattern hair loss and a full beard while in The Sims 2 console games, he is a black man with short dreadlocks, a soul patch, and glasses. I'd suggest making a sperate page for Bob Newbie (console). —Gvaudoin 💬 18:53, June 4, 2019 (UTC)
A few weeks ago, Maxis uploaded Buddy Newbie to the gallery with Betty and Bob Newbie. Buddy appeared with Betty and Bob Newbie in The Sims 2 Pets on console. In that version of the game, Bob Newbie is dark-skinned while Betty isn't. I'm not sure if that's enough of a connection to go on, but it's just something I wanted to note.
