Career: what's stated on SimPE VS what appears in the game[edit source]
While it's true that slobs' career is unemployed in the game data viewed from SimPE, it's also stated that their career is constant, meaning that no matter what, their career will always be Slacker at a certain level. If this is always true in any case, I believe this should be added in the infobox, instead of removing it. This is the same case as The Diva and Mr. Big.
Also, consider this. Similar cases like this have occurred many times, but the information is kept on the infobox anyway, instead of removing it:
- Sims without aspiration is stated as having the Power aspiration on the infobox, while they clearly don't have any aspiration to begin with when viewed in SimPE.
- Sims without personality points and zodiac sign are stated as Cancer. Yeah, it's true that the game considers Sims with no personality to be a Cancer, but isn't it the same case as this? If we're going to stick with what we see from SimPE, then the result is that these Sims don't have any zodiac signs.
The point is that we should always enforce consistency. If we decide to remove what doesn't appear in SimPE, then we should do it to all things. If we decide to add them, then we do so. Exceptions may apply, but I don't see them in this case. Nikel Talk – Vote! 06:30, August 5, 2014 (UTC)
- What do you mean by info box? I think we should keep both sets of information, just in-case it causes arguments and contradiction among editors. And if one has to be removed, I'd say it should be what appears in SimPE because what appears in-game usually tends to be more accurate than what appears in SimPE, unless the interests and career are randomized, which in this case, they aren't. -- C.Syde (talk | contribs) 06:36, August 5, 2014 (UTC)
- If we're going to keep the information which we gain from the game experience, not the game files from SimPE, then we should put back the career parameter here. Personally I think this is a better solution, but again certain exceptions might have a different better solution. Nikel Talk – Vote! 06:56, August 5, 2014 (UTC)
I guess we should put the career parameters back then, and keep the reference in the article information. -- C.Syde (talk | contribs) 06:58, August 5, 2014 (UTC)
