Help with age groups?[edit source]

Hi! I am having a bit of trouble adding different age groups to my fanon(s). I want to add two age groups at once, but when i go to publish it, they don't show up.

IMG 20190526 200107.jpg

this photo is how i want age groups to look like on my fanon(s).

I'm using sims2 fanon(s). Thankyou! GingerxNinjax (talk) 10:03, May 26, 2019 (UTC)GingerxNinjax

This kind of a request would be better for the community discussions forum. The Admin's Noticeboard is meant primarily for requesting administrator assistance, whereas changes to most wiki templates are not determined solely by administrators. - LostInRiverview talk · blog · contribs 20:36, May 26, 2019 (UTC)

Deletion of TS4: Island Living[edit source]

A few minutes ago, I deleted The Sims 4: Island Living because its creation, in my view, violated the Unreleased Games Policy, specifically parts 1 and 3 of the 'Rumor Confirmation' rule. I do believe that the page did violate the letter of the policy. However, upon reflection, I am not sure that deletion was the proper course of action, so I have undeleted the page. I noted in the undeletion log that this is a "unique case." I say that because the so-called confirmation of the rumor was a leak from an EA website. It was not based only on speculation of leaks from non-EA sources, as has happened with games in the past. I think that the UGP as is currently written doesn't adequately address this particular scenario, so as it stands there would be no grounds for me to simply delete the page. I assume within a day of now this will be a moot point (as EA will probably officially announce the expansion at tomorrow's livestream), so it's not worth pursuing a formal deletion discussion. I fully expect that within the next few days, I'll be proposing an amendment to the UGP to cover this type of a leak. In any case, I'm just posting an explanation here for the sake of anyone looking at the Deletion Logs who might be confused by what I did. -- LostInRiverview talk · blog · contribs 01:19, June 8, 2019 (UTC)

RE: Editing restriction on DrakonoSkerdikas[edit source]

(As being discussed at The_Sims_Wiki_talk:Admin_Portal#Editing_restriction_on_DrakonoSkerdikas) I want to say, as a non-admin IP user having to deal with Drakono, that I support this proposal after the recent fiasco with Residential lot, how he proposed his changes on the talk page and I responded and he went ahead and made his own changes anyways without responding, apparently because he's not interested in talking any longer and thinks I'm in his way. He knows his edits are bad, yet he still continues to edit and expect others to fix his mess. I've had enough of doing that. 74.198.131.130 (talk) 11:56, August 4, 2019 (UTC)

Requesting bot flag for Syde BOT[edit source]

I've been thinking about this request for a long time now, but I would like to request a bot flag for my bot Syde BOT, so that I'll be able to use a bot to do AWB edits without flooding Recent Changes.

Of course that would mean that the bot would need to be added to the AWB whitelist. If you have any concerns about my bot being given a bot flag and being whitelisted from the AWB blacklist, I have reasonable experience with AWB, having used it to perform AWB edits over a period of 4 years. It is currently in operation on the following wikis:

I mostly use AWB to do replacements with the find and replace tool, that would be tedious to perform manually. Any Bureaucrat response would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! :) ― C.Syde (talk | contribs) 06:46, August 20, 2019 (UTC)

I have no issues with this request -- LostInRiverview talk · blog · contribs 02:00, September 5, 2019 (UTC)
This request has been open for three months and no one has given any objections to it. Therefore, I have given Syde BOT Bot and Admin flags. -- LostInRiverview talk · blog · contribs 03:43, November 30, 2019 (UTC)

I Have Two Accounts by Accident[edit source]

Hello admins! I realised today that I have two accounts, one is logged in on my phone and one on my computer, and I've been using both without realising it until now. I don't know when or how this happened, I have no memory of signing up two times. Is there any way I can merge my accounts? Katsube (talk) 13:21, September 16, 2019 (UTC)

It is not possible to merge accounts. —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 14:31, September 16, 2019 (UTC)
What I'd recommend is that you choose one of your accounts to be your "main account," and your other account to be your "second account." Go to your second account's userpage, include an explanation that your second account is owned by your main account, and include a link to your main account's userpage. Then, log out of your second account from any devices that currently use it to edit. From your main account, edit your main account userpage to show that you own the second account, and include a link to the second account's userpage. Note that your second account may be blocked from editing as a matter of policy, but that any blocks on the second account will not extend to your main account. If you have a particular reason why your second account shouldn't be blocked, please let us know. -- LostInRiverview talk · blog · contribs 21:42, September 16, 2019 (UTC)

New category for Sims with a customized gender[edit source]

  • There has been a lot of confusion lately over Sims with gender customization, and whether they're meant to be taken as transgender or not. I propose we add them to a new category (called "Sims with gender customization" or something similar), so that editors don't feel obligated to add them to the "LGBT Sims" category. - ✨AireDaleDogz✨ (talk) 08:01, October 18, 2019 (UTC)
    • This change should be proposed on the relevant talk page, or at the community discussion forum. The administrators' noticeboard is for incidents that require the attention of an administrator, such as user conduct disputes, vandalism, or page protection requests, and not for general editing concerns. —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 12:28, October 18, 2019 (UTC)

Physical copies of games[edit source]

Over the years I have collected a lot of physical copies of Sims here in Australia and a few are missing from this site. Are country specific releases something that this wiki keeps track of? If so, how can I go about providing relevant information to someone to update the pages? I do not have the time to modify the pages entirely myself, especially if they are editions deliberately not included. Some examples are Sims Carnival, Sims 2 Expansion Collection and Sims 2 + University
