Questions? You can ask at the Help desk or on the "discussion" page associated with each article, leave a message with an administrator or post a message on my talk page!
Need help? The Community Portal has an outline of the site, and pages to help you learn how to edit. You may also try asking for help on the IRC channel, where some users may be able to help you!
Want someone to guide you along the way? Check out our user adoption program which is designed to help out new and possibly inexperienced users like yourself.
Spotted some vandalism? We have a team of administrators who will happily deal with vandalism when they see it. If you have found some vandalism from a user who hasn't been sanctioned, you can help by reporting it!
Please sign in every time you edit, so that we can recognize you!
Want to get noticed in the community? Well, we have tons of opportunities for you! The Forums are a great place for The Sims and The Sims Wiki related questions and games! Not your style?

Editing note[edit source]

Hi. Just a reminder: when editing, please be careful not to remove interwiki links or categories of the article. Nikel Talk Vote! 06:11, July 30, 2015 (UTC)

Did I do that? I'm so sorry, I wasn't even trying to edit those. I'll be more careful, and thanks for being so nice about it. Apologies again. Vpetmad (talk) 09:15, July 30, 2015 (UTC)
It's okay, I'm sure it was an accident. While editing, are you using visual editor or source editor, if I may ask? Nikel Talk Vote! 06:39, July 31, 2015 (UTC)
I usually use Visual as I'm not very familiar with using code. Vpetmad (talk) 09:29, July 31, 2015 (UTC)
Oh, I see. Visual editor is usually the culprit of glitchiness in the content. It's advisable that you get used to source code editing though. It's more practical and handy once you're used to it. Nikel Talk Vote! 11:37, July 31, 2015 (UTC)
Thanks, I'm working on it. Vpetmad (talk) 11:46, July 31, 2015 (UTC)

About that Voodoo Doll edit...[edit source]


Just so you know, that wasn't a mistake on my part when I changed that part last year; "idle" is a verb too.

But it's no big deal, and you edited several other bits that did need fixing.  So no worries.

BloodyBay from YouTube (talk) 02:08, September 22, 2015 (UTC)

Oh, ok thanks, I didn't know that. Always happy to learn something new, especially about words! Vpetmad (talk) 06:32, September 22, 2015 (UTC)

Successful nomination for rollback[edit source]

Congratulations on your successful nomination for rollback! Thought I might give you a short introduction on the rollback tool.

Rollback is a feature of the MediaWiki software that runs many websites, namely Wikipedia and Wikia. It allows all consecutive edits made by one user to be undone in one click.

What rollback does. Rollback only works on the latest edit (current revision) in an article. If you click on rollback, it acts immediately. Instructing the server to perform rollback will revert all consecutive edits made by one user to the last revision not made by that user. For instance, if User A made 6 edits in a row to The Sims 2, and no one else edited after them, using rollback will revert all 6 of those edits to the last edit not made by User A.

When to use it. Because rollback does not allow for a custom edit summary, it should only be used for obvious vandalism. It should not be used to revert good faith edits or edits that have good intentions. If a good faith edit needs to be reverted, use the undo function or manually revert the edit and provide an explanation in the edit summary.

You can use rollback to:

  • Revert obvious vandalism
  • Revert your own edits (AKA self-reverting)
  • Revert edits in your own userspace (e.g. your userpage or your user talk page)
  • Revert a large amount of edits that are deemed unhelpful, such as a malfunctioning bot, as long as an explanation is posted somewhere, perhaps at the talk page of the bot.

What if I accidentally click it? It happens, because rollback works instantly. If you do accidentally rollback an edit you didn't intend to revert, just manually revert the edit and explain it was a mistake.

What else do I do after reverting vandalism? It's not strictly required, but it would be appropriate to warn the vandal on their user talk page. You can either use a hand-written warning or, now that you are a rollbacker, you can use the pre-made warning templates.

Have any questions? You can ask me at my my talk page.

Thanks, and enjoy your new tool! --I am k6ka Talk to me! See what I have done 12:10, November 10, 2015 (UTC)

Checking in[edit source]

Hey Vpetmad! This is LostInRiverview, stopping by to say hello.

As you might know, I was recently given the title of Community Director. This position basically means that it's my job to help improve and develop the wiki community.

As Community Director, I want to make sure that the TSW contributors are valued and thanked for their contributions. So, thank you! Thank you for the edits you've made, and for the work you've put into making TSW a better place. I also want to get your input. As an active user here, your ideas, opinions, concerns and questions are important to me. Are you satisfied with your experiences on The Sims Wiki? Is there anything that I can do to help make things better for you, or anything that we can do on a community-wide level to improve? Do you have any burning questions or anything you'd want to bring to my attention? Please let me know, for any of these points or anything else, on my talk page.

So, to wrap things up, I just want to know what you're thinking and feeling, and remind you to contact me at any point now or in the future if you've got any issues or questions.

Thanks for reading - LiR talkblogcontribs 05:14, December 10, 2015 (UTC)

A Garden of Roses[edit source]

Thank you for notifying us that you've paused A Garden of Roses. I understand that fanon writers sometimes need to take a break, as I myself will be on a week-long hiatus from my major Sims projects, after I publish Chapter 5 of PVCS vs STM this weekend.

At the time you choose to continue the story, and encounter any technical difficulties in getting the sims to "behave" for the screenshots, do feel free to ask me on my Talk Page, or if the info is spoilery, send me a PM on YouTube.

Once again, thank you for letting us know. Yours is one of my most-enjoyed stories ever on TSW Fanon Portal :) AldoHyde 16:52, December 12, 2015 (UTC)

Merry christmas, friend! ;)[edit source]

Hey Vpetmad! We haven't really chatted very much, but in those times you've been a very nice person! You're a really talented person, and a very good friend to me! Thank you so much for everything! :D :D :D

Re:Pictures of the Rose family[edit source]

Hey Vpetmad, the Rose family pics look great :) I like Moss' pose the most.

It'll be great to see the other pic with all 8 of them too, even if the resolution is low. After all, many players struggle to get even one plantsim without cheats, so why not display your household of seven plantsims at once? ;) AldoHyde 08:04, January 5, 2016 (UTC)

Re: The Rose Garden[edit source]

Thanks for the pic :) It has saved me lots of precious time, so I have a good idea of how to proceed now...  ;) AldoHyde 13:33, January 11, 2016 (UTC)

[edit source]

I think you did a great job :) Please don't delete the original editable file though... thank you for this successful attempt ;) AldoHyde 12:35, January 13, 2016 (UTC)
