Should we remove the lifetime wish?[edit source]
I was watching this youtube video of this guy creating a teen sim, and when he went to the traits, he find no lifetime wish button. So, that might mean that there's no lifetime wish for teens. So, should we remove it lifetime wish?
- I agree with the person who did not put his signature. Teens don't have lifetime wishes until they age up. If, perhaps, the lifetime wish on his page is the lifetime with he got when he aged up, it would still be wrong because it could vary based on what happens in his life as a teen. I also think that someone should remove the lifetime wish (I would do it myself but I don't know how). O sry, i lost the crystal skull. 00:50, October 22, 2011 (UTC) (I edited the page and fixed my signature because I had neglected to log in before I replied)

Outfits for Gallery[edit source]
This issue isn't specific to only Parker's page but it seems like a good a place as any to discuss a question I have been having, since it is relevant to Parker's page in addition to others.
As I go through the Sunset Valley sims adding outfits for each of them I've come across some, like this one, where the outfits have already been added; but as separate images using screenshots of the entire CAS window. There are also at least a couple where a single image with all the outfits (like the ones I was originally adding before I was recommended the solid color mod) have already been added. My personal opinion is; I think it would be nice to have some uniformity for the outfit images (I do plan to add outfit images for all Sims 3 premade sims eventually), and I think that the shots I am making with a single image with a solid color background look nice. I also think the separate images especially look kind of cluttered on the page, though I appreciate the efforts of whoever did add them.
In spite of my opinion, I do not want to step on any toes by replacing existing images without first asking the community, and in particular the admins, what they think. My opinion could easily be biased by the fact that it is my own personal work and other users may not agree. It also seems like bad form to erase someone else's work unilaterally like that. So I ask, should I leave pages that already have the outfits added completely alone, regardless of what form those outfit images take? Replace the ones with separate images, like this one, but not the ones already using a single image? Or is it OK if I replace all of them with my uniform style of one image with a solid background (as I am willing to do with approval)?
I decided to make the image I would use for Parker and post it here as an example, in case you have not seen the other images I have added or would like to directly compare:Madhackrviper (talk) 20:42, December 29, 2018 (UTC)
- For this page specifically, I think it's best to replace all of those images with yours. Those screenshots are of low quality in the fact that they weren't cropped and include the entire UI. I could probably go and crop them myself, but it's probably easier to just replace them all with your image. —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 02:15, December 30, 2018 (UTC)
Eye Color[edit source]
This is a bigger topic that affects a lot of Sunset Valley sims: the eye color question. Maybe this just my opinion but Parker's eyes are black. Everyone in his family except for Dustin has black eyes. On a technicality it's a "very dark shade of green" but it has no bearing on genetics or what you perceive his eye color as. It's like putting a note that a brown-eyed sim's eye color is actually a dark shade of orange. Harw00dClay (talk) 03:47, 9 February 2021 (UTC)
- I don't necessarily disagree with your opinion, but how the eyes appear in the thumbnail is not always what is put in the Sim's infobox. See Cordelia Capp for an instance of this. If we want to change the template's information to reflect solely on the Sim's appearance in their thumbnail, I think a wider discussion should be had before making these type of edits.
