Welcome to my talk page!

Please use the Leave Message button to write a message on my page. Please be sure to sign your message (by typing out ~~~~) so I know who contacted me. I may also be online on the IRC Channel if you need an immediate response. If you need a quick response and I am not online, please contact an available administrator or bureaucrat for assistance.

Read me!

Please do not leave me messages asking if you are allowed to do something or have my permission. You do not need an administrator's permission to do things on the wiki. Let me repeat that - you DO NOT NEED PERMISSION. If, on the other hand, you'd like me to perform an action that only an administrator is able to perform, like deleting a page or blocking a user, feel free to leave a message requesting that. Thanks!

User page edit[edit source]

I have acknowledged your revert of my edit. I thought it was in good faith because I thought those templates are not allowed on user pages. But is that considered as bad faith? Sims Player (talk) (mistakes) 20:37, December 5, 2015 (UTC)

RE:Check in[edit source]

Hey LiR! Thanks for your message! I'm doing alright on the Wiki. It's a friendly community and I can always talk to them. And also there are not so many vandals here, which I compliment the admins for too! But what I find a pity, is that not so many users have really started advanced editing. I don't find that bad, I had to learn too. But what could be a nice idea is to have some sorts of program that helps users with editing. I know it sounds a bit the same as the adoption program, but this could be something else. This could be to encourage the whole community to start editing, and learn them the basics of editing, and guide them along! The idea can get some improvements, but I think that's a nice idea! :)

What's also nice to have some projects on the wiki! Making a good fanon with multiple (for example 3+) users, having a group that focuses on improving canon articles in a specific category. And you can get an award when you've did a good job. This could also be a good idea to stimulate the community, and award them for the hard work they put into the wiki. Also, because fanon is a major thing here, we could do some nice things with it too!

Let me know what you think! :D

RE:Check in 2[edit source]

Hi LiR! Thanks for the message, I think contacting users in this way is a good way to make admins seem less remote. There was one suggestion I've been meaning to bring up. I've found that the pages tagged for cleanup have been a good way to focus on constructive edits, but it's not always clear to a less experienced editor what needs clearing up on the page. Some of them do give a reason, which makes it a lot easier to understand and feel confident in your edits. I think some way of communicating what specifically needs fixing on each page would help more users to be confident in canon editing. Other than that, I like Sims2Player's idea of having some editing tutorials, particularly for more complex things.

Thanks again, and I hope my comments aren't completely useless ;). Vpetmad (talk) 15:48, December 10, 2015 (UTC)

Question[edit source]

Hello LiR. I have a question: When are you free to go on chat in the next few days (in UTC time zone)? I have a discreet concern about the wiki. Sims Player (talk) (mistakes) 10:00, December 23, 2015 (UTC)

IRC channel reform[edit source]

Hello! As a chanop on the IRC channel, you are asked to participate in a discussion involving the channel that could affect you. Please see Forum:IRC channel reform for the discussion thread. Feel free to ignore this message if you are not interested. Thanks, —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 21:55, June 2, 2016 (UTC)

As you have explicitly requested at Forum:IRC channel reform, I have removed your channel operator rights on the IRC channel. You will still be voiced when you join the channel. Thank you for your services! —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 12:00, June 17, 2016 (UTC)

Access to TSW's Facebook and Twitter pages[edit source]

With regards to The Sims Wiki talk:Admin Portal#Use_of_Facebook_and_Twitter_profiles, I would like to request access for TSW's Facebook and Twitter pages. Although I can't promise that I will be too terribly active, as I've lost considerable interest in The Sims myself, I may be able to from time to time post some updates when I get the chance to. It will also allow for more administrators to have the rights to pass on moderation to new admins/representatives should the need arises, since I'm usually available even if I don't generally do anything.

Portable infoboxes[edit source]

Hi, I'm Speedit from the Vanguard volunteer team! To follow on from your mentoring request, I'll be available to help you here. I will prepare draft infobox in the template namespace and style them to retain the community's look and feel in MediaWiki:Themes.css. Any issues about the portability migration will be relayed back to you.

Thank you for your time! -SPD 14:29, December 14, 2016 (UTC)

I apologize for leaving this unattended to for a couple months. Thank you for your detailed reply and instruction!
I have prepared a base portable infobox theme aligning with the test infobox you kindly prepared. The code is lying at my common.css. I have also prepared a functional draft of the {{Game}} infobox, which supports the generation-centric color scheme of the original infobox. To my understanding, {{Vgcode}} and {{MGL}} standardise the name parameter and convert it into a generation variable for input into the color templates. The simplest solution to get the current infoboxes working is to use those two templates in the same manner and recolor using CSS. :)
I understand that the theme will likely change to the wiki's needs before becoming final. Pitching the infobox redesign to the community sounds like a good idea. So does the migration. Converting to portable infoboxes will hopefully allow your community to centrally implement and roll out redesigns like this faster.
You may view the fruit of my work by visiting my user sandbox and pasting the following code into the console. Do note I'd really need to post this CSS into a wiki stylesheet to show it to the community. :3

Issue Regarding an Incident that has happened between me and a problematic user[edit source]

I was hoping to direct your attention to a message that was left here regarding an incident that has happened between me and another user. I know my actions may not seem justifiable on the outside, but on the inside I felt really uncomfortable, and I somehow had to put a stop to it. I do not wish to go into further details about it here, as I feel that it is too sensitive to do so publicly. ― C.Syde (talk | contribs) 10:13, March 6, 2017 (UTC)

Infobox Sim addition[edit source]

So I have been lately seeing you work on the Infobox Sim template and since I still got a chance to say this, could it be possible to add clubs from The Sims 4: Get Together to the social standing section? It has already social groups from The Sims 3: University Life and adding clubs won't probably do any bad. Just most likely have it the same way social groups do it, but add the pre-made Windenburg club icons, rename the "Social group" of the infobox to "Clubs" and have the


system be


This system would mostly be for the pre-made Sims living in Windenburg. The Dutch Sims Wiki does this and it doesn't look that bad. - SimDestroyer (talk) 10:09, December 22, 2017 (UTC)

RE: Pagecover conversion[edit source]

Hi LiR. I'm glad to hear that, and though I might have read this message a little bit too late, I'd love to check it out. I just read your message in Discord about it too late as well. Oh well. I hope you don't mind. Nikel Talk Vote! 08:35, February 13, 2018 (UTC)

Marking as WIP[edit source]

Hello, I'm somewhat new here and wonder how one should label a page as a WIP, or is otherwise in active development and subject to change, if needed at all. For now I'm just using "WIP." Thanks. Ultraworldwarrior (talk) 05:12, March 8, 2018 (UTC)[edit source]

Infoboxes[edit source]

Hey, LostinRiverview! Happy (slightly belated) birthday!

I'm sorry that I didn't get back to you right away, as I had a busy weekend with another community. I did hope to get back to you this week, but it would appear you went ahead with new infobox designs. I'm sorry that I couldn't be a part of that, as I spent a lot of time prepping portable infoboxes for your community for presentation. While I hope that you will eventually adopt a PI-based design in the future (and I could have adopted the style of what I had to match your new aesthetic), I will no longer be able to have a design ready to present to you this week, due to substantial retooling required to do so. Due to the pressing need for Portable Infoboxes on your community, I will pass back to you in a couple weeks with a new design.

Thanks! — FishTank <staff /> (wall) 01:44, June 13, 2018 (UTC)

In regards to File:GracearthurWooHoo.png[edit source]

I can understand why the photo I posted was deleted. When I posted that photo, it was more for story telling reasons than anything, not to be disruptive, vandalize or cause any harm. The Glenn family is a new legacy project that I have been playing in Sims 3 throughout the summer, and I wanted to show the different aspects these characters' lives which included "WooHoo". It is my personal belief that nudity isn't inherently sexual or something to be ashamed of, so I thought that adding a pixel censor to a cuddling photo would be acceptable (plus, Sims don't have genitals) but clearly the Sims Wiki think otherwise. I wasn't really up to date on the rules of the Wiki as I read the rules last in 2014 when I created the account (and I was 14 at the time, now I'm almost 18, a lot has happened since then). I had also taken a large break from actively posting/editing in the Sims Wiki between July 2017 to June 2018, so I just didn't think about it when I should have. The page George Glenn also had a similar photo to File:GracearthurWooHoo.png, so I took it off the page, and any administrator is free to delete the file (I don't know if I can do that or how to). I promise that I will try to refrain from posted any more photos with Sims pixelated nude. I don't want anything problematic on my pages. DarkSuicune2000 05:04, August 20, 2018 (UTC)

Greetings[edit source]

I am Big Brother1, my name is Johnny. I came to introduce myself to this Wiki, as I will help make changes to this Wiki. I came to ask about the rollback prerequisites, now I don't want to write this like a resume, but I have had experiences in other Wikis. I am a rollbacker on the South Park Game Wiki, but I understand I have to earn the tool before being equipped with it. 

Can I start of by saying if you guys need help in anything? I'd be happy to assist.

User:Big Brother1(Text/Pevert) 03:00, November 11, 2018 (UTC)Big Brother1

I understand you do not give out rollback upon request, which is why I said you must EARN it. I'll prove you that I can demonstrate my ability to help this Wiki run well, and I'll put in my best effort. Once again, it's a pleasure to meet you,

Re: Misuse of rollback tool[edit source]

What edit exactly is this for? If this was for the rollback on the StrangerVille article, that was my edit I did it for.  Apparently, I thought entering on the article would fix the article name from being all over the place, but then I realized it was my Chromebook.

IsaiahScribblenauts Disscuss - My Fanon 19:41, February 25, 2019 (UTC)

Like taking a look from the difference,

both of the revisions were by me, the edit, and the rollback.

IsaiahScribblenauts Disscuss - My Fanon 19:45, February 25, 2019 (UTC)

Oh. Well, yes, there's was nothing much for a rollback about the edit, but the thing most concerning me was the edit on line 31, where, changes in bold , was;

General Chip Grunt' '(Gen. Buzz's father): Means a lot of things, such as French Fries. Also can be a nickname of Christopher or Charles. Missy Grunt (Gen. Buzz's mother): A young female; It also means Miss Grunt. Or, it can be a nickname of name Melissa.

That was the main thing that I was concerned about. There wasn't anything else for it, like additions or changes besides that. If you do want me to redo it and remove those additions, I can go and do that. IsaiahScribblenauts Disscuss - My Fanon 20:19, February 25, 2019 (UTC)

Cleanup[edit source]

Hi, I'm having an issue with uploading an image to the gallery. I wanted to upload a few TS3 screenshots of my horse to the horse's fanon page but every time I try to, I get a permission error. Is there something I'm doing wrong?

Shared images[edit source]

Hi there! My name is Tess and I am an admin of the German version of the Sims Wiki. Since you are one of the admins of the English one I would like to ask you if you would allow the German Wiki to use the images of this wiki with the help of a shared images repository. It wouldn't make much of a difference to this wiki but would be a great help for the German one.

Best regards, MasterTeska (talk) 13:14, June 14, 2019 (UTC)

Hi there, and sorry for the late reply! I was on vacation last week. Thanks for letting me know, and thank you for allowing us to use your images! I'll go and request the shared images repository. How would you like us to mark an image that will be used on German pages? Should we create a template for that matter? Best regards, MasterTeska (talk) 11:42, July 10, 2019 (UTC)

Thank you for correcting that mistake. I did not even notice it as I was creating the page. I'll definitely pay more attention to that when I create future Fanon pages. Thanks again! -- AceTaylor27 01:29, January 18, 2020 (UTC)
