Not to be confused with The Sims Wiki:Newsletter.

The News Team is a group of The Sims Wiki editors that have agreed to volunteer their time and writing talents to write our weekly news blogs and other news features.

How to volunteer

Although there is no strict requirement for joining the News Team, we do expect that News Team members are:

  • able to write and communicate fluently in English,
  • able to commit to writing complete news blogs,
  • willing to volunteer to write news blogs, and
  • to follow through with completing those writing tasks.

If you feel you meet these criteria, please sign your name on the Volunteer Sign-up list below.

Standards for the News Team

Generally, we publish our weekly news blog on Sundays (based on UTC, not local time/date). Special blogs about new game features, other Sims, or Wiki news can be written on days other than Thursday, but please don't write news blogs for minor occurrences.

There is no absolute standard on the appearance of the weekly blogs. However, as these blogs have been released, a unified visual appearance and layout has materialized. For examples of the theme, see this, this, and this. The following are generally repeated standards for each news blog.

  • Each blog is titled with 'User blog:<User name>/The Sims Wiki News - date Month year'. The date is listed as a number, and is given an ordinal suffix (e.g. 11th, 21st, 22nd), and the month and year are both given fully.
  • The blogs usually use a green border and white background. To add this to a blog post, include {{Blogheader|start|color=green}} at the top of the page and {{blogheader|end}} at the bottom.
  • Blog posts usually utilize {{Pagecover}}; images used in the pagecover should be higher-resolution and, if possible, related to a main subject of the blog (like a new game/expansion pack release, an upcoming holiday, etc).
  • The blogs generally use the same section headers, including a section on 'Sims News' and 'The Sims Wiki News'. Other sections can be included as the situation warrants.
  • The blogs are signed by the users that post them.
  • The {{Follow us}} template is added to the end of the blog.
