Hello, I'm not so familiar with userboxes and you have a lot of them so: how do you place userboxes? Dutch-tom (talk) 15:28, February 20, 2013 (UTC)

It almost worked... Dutch-tom (talk) 18:18, February 21, 2013 (UTC)

That sounds as a good idea. I would just like my userboxes in the same places as yours. Thanks already :-) Dutch-tom (talk) 16:30, February 22, 2013 (UTC)

Thank you! Just as I wanted it to be! Dutch-tom (talk) 09:46, February 23, 2013 (UTC)

Userbox[edit source]

This User makes good stories! :D

A little gift i made for ya! :)


RE: Renaming your page[edit source]

Oh, I'm sorry! I wasn't aware that it was part of your fan fiction. I did think it was a family page. I apologize for my mistake. Nikel Talk Vote! 13:40, February 28, 2014 (UTC)

Review[edit source]

I think that your page is pretty good so far. Is it done yet? Glynn Tarrant 16:20, March 11, 2014 (UTC)

RE: Your userpage[edit source]

Nope, I don't mind. You can make my userpage as an example if you want to. :) Nikel Talk Vote! 04:18, March 19, 2014 (UTC)

You mean, you only want the "About Me" box centered, while the others not? I'll try tweaking it and removing the gaps. Nikel Talk Vote! 16:26, March 19, 2014 (UTC)
Okay, how about now? :) The gaps are removed and the text is aligned.
Unfortunately, I can't deal with the tabber at the moment. Apparently, we can't use tabber inside a table even if the preview shows otherwise. :/ Also, the smaller tables inside the About Me are rounded because that's what will happen if we put a table inside a table. I'll try tweaking once more if I could fix it. Hold on. Nikel Talk Vote! 16:41, March 19, 2014 (UTC)
I stand corrected. It was the {{Title}} template that caused tabber unusable. In other words, if you want to use the tabber, you need to remove the custom title as a temporary workaround. I recalled I once asked this issue at the Community Central, but I forgot what they responded. I'll try to figure it out tomorrow if I can! Nikel Talk Vote! 16:58, March 19, 2014 (UTC)
Glad I could help you out. :) I remember where I asked about the issue, but I don't think I'm capable of fixing it. I'm sorry that you'll have to choose either one of them. :/ Nikel Talk Vote! 15:56, March 21, 2014 (UTC)
Good news! I think I've solved the issue. Try adding the {{Title}} template now. Nikel Talk Vote! 16:34, March 21, 2014 (UTC)

RE: Pages in user spaces.[edit source]

Feel free to! You can make as many subpages of your userpage as you need to finish your task. K6ka (talk | contribs) 20:14, March 23, 2014 (UTC)

RE: Userboxes[edit source]

You can make userboxes add categories by adding <includeonly>[[Category:CATEGORY NAME HERE]]</includeonly> to the userbox template. You are welcome to experiment in your userpage or in the sandbox. K6ka (talk | contribs) 19:58, March 27, 2014 (UTC)

Okay, should've been more clear. The "includeonly" tags mean "Include only when transcluded". You'll need to transclude your template to another page. It's hard to explain, so I did it for you on your sandbox. Note that I created another page - User:WayfinderOwl/Sandbox2 - that will be the template itself. The category, wrapped in "includeonly" tags - won't appear on the template page itself but will appear when the template is transcluded to another page.

RE: That story of mine[edit source]

Thank you for the link. It sounds interesting, might read it tonight! K6ka (talk | contribs) 00:52, April 2, 2014 (UTC)

Typing mistakes[edit source]

Well I must say you're not the first fanon writer to make typing mistakes. I've done that least once :) C.Syde65 (talk) 04:49, April 4, 2014 (UTC)

That's perfectly alright :) C.Syde65 (talk) 05:33, April 4, 2014 (UTC)

RE: Wiki Contributers and editting fanons[edit source]

I left a note on the IPs talk page. Feel free to inform them that controversial changes to a fanon is not permitted in the future. --k6ka (talk | contribs) 19:59, April 23, 2014 (UTC)

A hand-written warning is fine as long as it doesn't involve saying that the user could be blocked for their actions (only sysops - think of system operators - can do that). The templated warning message can only be used by rollbackers and sysops. --k6ka (talk | contribs) 21:37, April 23, 2014 (UTC)

RE: Abandoned Fanons[edit source]

No idea, really. On Template:Fanon-abandoned, all it says is "no longer continued by its author after a long period of time." So I would assume the period of time would be "Use your own judgment". --k6ka (talk | contribs) 21:30, May 7, 2014 (UTC)

Re: Continued from Genesis Project conversation....[edit source]

Actually, I don't play GTA. I just know how to google. ;-) Icemandeaf (talk) 22:18, May 12, 2014 (UTC)

It sure is bound to happen. And I am counting on you being able to identify them because I know I won't be able to. ;-)
By all means, you can do that because I have no plans of creating a back story of any of the Original 8. Icemandeaf (talk) 22:34, May 12, 2014 (UTC)

 RE: Albany Capp vs. Cornwall Capp[edit source]

Hey there Willow, I noticed that you left a comment on The Sims Wiki:Battles page. Just some suggestions, if you want to find out about these two characters, you could read their descriptions on their respective pages. Or you could play The Sims 2 (if you haven't deleted all the pre-made families / neighbourhoods etc.) and play as Albany and Cornwall. Then you might be able to make a decision as to who you want to vote for. C.Syde (talk | contribs) 03:29, May 13, 2014 (UTC)

If you don't want to install The Sims 2 just to help you vote, then that's fine. I know what it's like to have a computer that can't play games up to scratch (the first computer I played the Sims 2 on took like ten minutes to load one family - which was real annoying). It doesn't really matter whether you vote or not. C.Syde (talk | contribs) 06:40, May 14, 2014 (UTC)

Request for rollback[edit source]

Your request for rollback rights has been approved. Congratulations! - LostInRiverview talk ~ blog 02:19, May 18, 2014 (UTC)

Congrats! Welcome to the team. Icemandeaf (talk) 04:41, May 18, 2014 (UTC)
I understand that. I was in just as much of a shock when I was nominated when I didn't even know what a rollback was. Icemandeaf (talk) 05:25, May 18, 2014 (UTC)
I'm not surprised that you were accepted. ;-) Icemandeaf (talk) 05:54, May 18, 2014 (UTC)
Really really. If they accepted me, they would accept you. Icemandeaf (talk) 06:48, May 18, 2014 (UTC)
Welcome to our team of rollbackers! :) C.Syde (talk | contribs) 04:51, May 18, 2014 (UTC)

LOL! I like that message you just sent me! C.Syde (talk | contribs) 05:30, May 18, 2014 (UTC)

Fans' Assumptions[edit source]

Saw that comment on your Goth Family Fanon Talk page, where that anonymous user wrongly assumed your Goth Family Fanon must necessarily be over, simply because you started a different project.

Fans need to understand that authors need a break sometimes, and different projects are a good way to keep things fresh. I keep getting that sort of reaction (from fans who think my sims show is a consumer commodity) over the years I made STM.

I could never manage playing so many generations with the same family ;)

AldoHyde 07:04, May 18, 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for replying :) If you get fond of a sim in a generational legacy, you can always save a copy of them, and clone them in an alternate universe (it's easier to do this in Sims 3 than in Sims 2).

If you ever choose to upgrade your internet access plan, hopefully you can watch my videos.  AldoHyde 07:38, May 26, 2014 (UTC)

Your Userpage[edit source]

Hi WayfinderOwl, can I copy your Uerpage? I mean not all of it, just the style and changing the format of it. If you don't agree then I understand. But give me a reply soon. Thanks! :) ThePeculiarMe | (talk to me) 10:37, May 19, 2014 (UTC)

Great! Thank you. I need to cleanup my userpage, though I'm not a perfectionist but I just want to reorganize it. And, your userpage (and Nikel's) inspired me.
And congratulations from becoming a rollbacker, by the way. I didn't expect they'll accept you in just a day. ThePeculiarMe | (talk to me) 00:30, May 20, 2014 (UTC)

Navi!![edit source]

I've noticed that you wrote two words that is despised by a large fan-base...

Do you, by any chance, heard of the blue orb of light with wings named Navi?

(By the way, Hii! It's me from long ago who supported your A Goth Story fanon!)

Fangirl(Go ahead! Talk!Don't even bother looking here.)

I LOVE ZELDA! I have Ocarina of Time, Twilight Princess and the Wind Waker! How bout you? What games of LOZ do you own?

Fangirl(Go ahead! Talk!Don't even bother looking here.)

I have to admit, Twilight Princess is my second favorite Zelda game. But, my all time favorite has to be Ocarina of time. That one is a classic! Wind Waker is also a very cute one! Tetra is sooo adorable!

I also forgot to mention, a friend of mine gave me Spirit Tracks, and I love that one as well!

Fangirl(Go ahead! Talk!Don't even bother looking here.)

Hi! Plumbbobparadise here. Was browsing your fanons (which are great btw), and want to know how a few things were done so I could do the same on some of my pages. For example, the sims' skills and their relationships and the family tree stuff, like how can I link members of the same family together. I'm fairly new to this, so if you could help, it would be much appreciated. Thanks. :) Plumbbobparadise (talk) 13:34, June 12, 2014 (UTC)Plumbbobparadise

If I wanted to add, say, relations with other Sims and a family tree, how would I go about doing that? Plumbbobparadise (talk) 14:13, June 12, 2014 (UTC)Plumbbobparadise

Thanks for the help :) I'm sorry if I'm confusing you, but I was meaning the box you had on one of your pages where you had the other Sims and what their relationship is, like Good Friend, Best Friend, etc. I'm also trying to connect the members of my Sim family. I haven't done all their pages yet but I've got most of them done :)

Hello again! You suggested looking for the table button and I don't see it when I go to edit my page. I'm trying to add a skills tab for Savannah and another for a couple of her daughters and I can't find the button. The ones that come up are bold, italic, internal link, external link, etc. The 'more' tab has templates, wiki markup, and HTML. :( I'm even more confused than ever, if that's possible, rofl.

Replica of the Goth Family House[edit source]

I wonder if you ever saw my replica of the Goth family house which I recently uploaded on this page. -- C.Syde (talk | contribs) 06:44, July 30, 2014 (UTC)

RE: Your Bot[edit source]

It will fix typos as long as I feed it pages that have typos. Currently I'm running a list of all fanons created on the wiki into the bot, not including recently created ones. --k6ka (talk | contribs) 13:49, September 17, 2014 (UTC)

Premade Sim fanons[edit source]

Hi, I renamed some of your premade Sims fanon, e.g. Fanon:Bella Goth (TS3) to Fanon:Bella Goth (WayfinderOwl). Because of the high possibility that you're not the only one who writes fanons about premade Sims, you should try to make the title as unique as possible. At the moment, I only renamed your Goth fanons. Next time, try to follow this pattern. Thank you! Nikel Talk Vote! 14:32, December 1, 2014 (UTC)

RE: Unsubscribing from the bot[edit source]

Yeah, it was a new thing I added to give users the opportunity to opt-out of these messages after noticing some people didn't really want those messages. So instead of being bureaucratic, I thought it would be appropriate to allow people to opt-out. Anyways, I've taken you off the list. Happy Simming! --I am k6ka Talk to me!

RE: Fanon questions[edit source]

You can create the fanon for her now, having {{Property}} attribute the fanon to you (for the meantime), and use the {{Info}} template to let other people know that the fanon originally belongs to her and that you are posting it for her because she is underage. Once she hits the golden age of 13, she should create an account, change the {{Property}} template to attribute the fanon to her, remove the notices, and continue working on the fanon from there. --I am k6ka Talk to me! See what I have done 20:57, February 9, 2015 (UTC)

We usually inform or warn users before blocking, so we would fill you in and let you know if there were any issues. Blocks are intended to prevent disruption, not to punish. --I am k6ka Talk to me! See what I have done 21:13, February 9, 2015 (UTC)

RE: Your message to AldoHyde[edit source]

Hi! I'm not AldoHyde, but I can give an answer to your question!

You use this code for example:

<option>[[File:example|000px|example text|link=example]]</option>

Without any links or text, it'll be:


If you want it on the right, use this:

<div style="position: fixed; right:0; bottom:0;">

On the left:

<div style="position: fixed; left:0; bottom:0;">

Those two must be filled in above the image codes, so it'll show up correctly.

And this must be filled in at the bottom when you're done with the images:


To make it more clear for you, it must be filled in like this (for example):

<div style="position: fixed; left:0; bottom:0;">



<div style="position: fixed; right:0; bottom:0;">



Hope this helped you! :) Sims Player (talk) (mistakes) 15:19, December 1, 2015 (UTC)

RE: Question about Nikki Yang fanon[edit source]

Hello, WayfinderOwl. Actually, it's a custom content hairstyle made from Peggyzone, but unfortunately, that original website has been shut down. I'm not sure if I'm allowed to post a link to a hairstyle, though. Maybe you could still find that specific hairstyle in a different Sims 3 website that notes 'Peggyzone'. Wikierzz1122 (Let's talk it over) 02:46, December 16, 2015 (UTC)

My apologies for the late reply, but yeah, it's sad that your laptop has crappy memory. About Nikki's dress, well, I just download Sims with Custom Content from the official TheSims3 website, so it's hard to figure out where exactly the Custom Content item is. Well, the dress that Nikki is wearing is Custom Content. I'll let you know if I found the link. Wikierzz1122 (Let's talk it over) 09:04, December 25, 2015 (UTC)
