'''Adopt-a-user''' is a feature on {{SITENAME}} which is designed to help new and inexperienced users. Experienced users on TSW can "adopt" a user by mentoring them along the way as they learn about the wiki, its various features and aspects.
   
-----------------Begin left column----------------->
+
This program is best suited for inexperienced users who wish to be long term contributors. If you fancy being adopted then don't hesitate to message one of [[The Sims Wiki:Adopt-a-user#Adopters|adopters]], who will be more than happy to help. Please read the rules, regulations and tips before adding yourself to the list or requesting to be adopted.

+
*You should try to help a user as much as possible.
<!--
+
*Control yourself. Even if the adoptee has done something wrong countless times, you still have no right to insult them. [[The Sims Wiki:Assume good faith|Assume good faith]], remain calm and avoid frustration or emotion.
  +
*Ideally the system should span for 3 months although an adoptee may request to be a mentee for longer. Please ensure that you are as active as possible.
  +
*If you do receive a request from a user wishing to be an adoptee but you are unable to fulfil that request, please forward the user to another adopter if possible.
  +
*You should try to check [[:Category:Users/Wishes for adoption]] regularly to see if there are any users wishing to be adopted.
  +
*Anyone wishing to become an adopter should keep the following criteria in mind:
  +
**Must not currently be an adoptee.
  +
**Must not have received a block for disruptive behavior in the past three months.
  +
**Should have a reasonable amount of edits, although quality > quantity.
  +
**Should be knowledgeable with the wiki in general.

== For Adoptees ==
{| style="width:100%; background-color:#344790; margin-top:2px; padding:5px;"
+
*Pick any user from this list you think look like good adopters and request to be adopted on their talk page. Alternatively you may add the userbox {{T|User adoptme}} to your userpage.
<!--
+
*Make sure you listen to what the adopter says; you will be monitored on progress and cooperation.
  +
*Don't hesitate to ask your adopter for help/guidance where needed - they are here to help after all.
  +
*If you have an issue with your adopter's conduct, please try to take it up with them first. If that fails then please contact a bureaucrat. You may search for bureaucrats via [[Special:Listusers/bureaucrat]] or on [[The Sims Wiki:Administrators|this page]] where users are labelled as "Bureaucrat".
  +
*Make sure you're reasonably active.

Adopt-a-user is a feature on The Sims Wiki which is designed to help new and inexperienced users. Experienced users on TSW can "adopt" a user by mentoring them along the way as they learn about the wiki, its various features and aspects.

This program is best suited for inexperienced users who wish to be long term contributors. If you fancy being adopted then don't hesitate to message one of adopters, who will be more than happy to help. Please read the rules, regulations and tips before adding yourself to the list or requesting to be adopted.

For Adopters Edit

  • You should try to help a user as much as possible.
  • Control yourself. Even if the adoptee has done something wrong countless times, you still have no right to insult them. Assume good faith, remain calm and avoid frustration or emotion.
  • Ideally the system should span for 3 months although an adoptee may request to be a mentee for longer. Please ensure that you are as active as possible.
  • If you do receive a request from a user wishing to be an adoptee but you are unable to fulfil that request, please forward the user to another adopter if possible.
  • You should try to check Category:Users/Wishes for adoption regularly to see if there are any users wishing to be adopted.
  • Anyone wishing to become an adopter should keep the following criteria in mind:
    • Must not currently be an adoptee.
    • Must not have received a block for disruptive behavior in the past three months.
    • Should have a reasonable amount of edits, although quality > quantity.
    • Should be knowledgeable with the wiki in general.

For Adoptees Edit

  • Pick any user from this list you think look like good adopters and request to be adopted on their talk page. Alternatively you may add the userbox {{User adoptme}} to your userpage.
  • Make sure you listen to what the adopter says; you will be monitored on progress and cooperation.
  • Don't hesitate to ask your adopter for help/guidance where needed - they are here to help after all.
  • If you have an issue with your adopter's conduct, please try to take it up with them first. If that fails then please contact a bureaucrat. You may search for bureaucrats via Special:Listusers/bureaucrat or on this page where users are labelled as "Bureaucrat".
  • Make sure you're reasonably active.
