The Sims Wiki is currently encouraging a new "adoption" feature. This is for experienced users to get a chance to show their skills and help a brand new inexperienced Wikia user to find their feet and their categories.

This is meant to be fun and educational for both users, adopter and adoptee. Please read the rules, regulations and tips before adding yourself to the list or requesting to be adopted.

For Adopters

  • You must try your best to teach new users as much as possible about Templates, Categories, Vandalism and how to approach it, Wiki Policies and Wiki-text.
  • You have 3 months before the new user will be asked to make a short review about what you have taught him/her, pointing out what they liked and disliked about you teaching them.
  • Control yourself. Even if the adoptee has done something wrong countless times, you still have no right to insult them.
  • The entire system spans about 3 months. Please make sure that you'll be able to handle and have time for it if a new user asks you to adopt them.
  • Once you accept an adoption request, please leave a message here containing who you adopted.
  • Most of the time, you will have no control over who asks you to be adopted. When you enter this, anybody who requests to be adopted must not be turned down without a reasonable excuse.
  • Please notify us here if you would like to become an adopter. Include your reasons for wanting to become an adopter, how many users you believe you're open to adopt, a short description of who you are and your interests and any notes you think are mentionable. This helps record keeping remain simple and stops users without enough experience adopting.

For Aoptees

  • Please do not apply if you are already experienced on another Wiki.
  • Pick any user from this list you think look like good adopters and request to be adopted on their talk page.
  • Make sure you listen to what the adopter says; you will be monitored on progress and cooperation.
  • If the adopter is being rude, unfair or unhelpful, report it immediately here.
  • Make sure you'll be able to log-on enough times during the week.
