New Layout Edit

Ok. Ive created the Sims Wiki Battles! Anyway, I'm using RR's suggested template, as Duskey's is glitchy. So, If anyone has a better template, please tell me. Thanks! BobNewbie talkblog 15:39, December 6, 2010 (UTC)

Ideas Edit

Ok, I think the next few battles should be:

  • Simbot V.S PlantSim
  • Bridgeport V.S Pleasantview
  • Buy Mode V.S Build Mode
  • Bed V.S CowPlant

BobNewbie talkblog 16:07, December 6, 2010 (UTC)

For Bridgeport vs Pleasantview, I think that's like comparing apples to oranges (A TS3 city versus a TS2 town)... I think Bridgeport vs Sunset Valley would be cooler, but it's your call. -- LostInRiverview talk · blog 19:00, December 6, 2010 (UTC)
I agree with that. BobNewbie talkblog 19:19, December 6, 2010 (UTC)
What about something a little spooky like
Vampire V.S Vampire (The Sims 3)

Please see The Sims Wiki:Battles/Nominations to nominate future battles. —Random Ranaun (Talk to me!) 09:30, December 10, 2010 (UTC)

A month? Really? Edit

Even though the page says there's a new battle very month, the last battle has ended after a weel. Why? --Norman Average 18:52, December 14, 2010 (UTC)

Sorry. We decide to have them every 2 weeks, Please excuse the mistake. BobNewbie talkblog 19:20, December 14, 2010 (UTC)
Oh, ok. --Norman Average 19:21, December 14, 2010 (UTC)

Countdown Edit

Hey! As you may have noticed, the countdown is not working. Could we possibly replace the time remaining box with a end date box? BobNewbie talkblog 07:47, December 29, 2010 (UTC)

Anons. Edit

I have noticed quite a few IPs voting in the Battles. I know that in official community votes, we don't allow anons. to vote. Are IPs allowed to vote on the Battles or are we adopting the general voting rules? Regards, GG (t)(c)(b) 20:28, January 7, 2011 (UTC)

Hmm... in this case I think they could vote. --Guilherme Guerreiro (talk here) 20:29, January 7, 2011 (UTC)
Should we create a special "Anonymous Votes" section, specifically for them? —Random Ranaun (Talk to me!) 21:39, February 17, 2011 (UTC)
As the battles page itself says, "Since this is a vote-for-favorite thing, everyone is allowed to take part! Vote for the one you want to win!" I don't think we need a new anonymous votes section. -- LostInRiverview talk · blog 22:28, February 17, 2011 (UTC)

Signing Edit

It's getting very tiring to place {{Unsigned}} for every user and IP who doesn't sign their votes. Should we just delete votes that aren't signed? —Random Ranaun (Talk to me!) 00:17, February 22, 2011 (UTC)

Thank you, but I prefer O Positive! (Talk) This Plasma Pack tastes fool!17:42, March 22, 2011 (UTC)
If they continue, I can say that they will have to face the consequences of their actions. So, if the problem grows more, then yes.

Changing the time length of battlesEdit

Even though the battle might be over in approximately 1 week, 2 week is too soon for administrators (or presently, me) to keep it updated. Since I was gone, the battle is late for 4 days already. I'm thinking about changing it from 2 weeks to 3 weeks instead. Is anyone in favor? Nikel Talk Vote Guess! 11:47, July 27, 2012 (UTC)

I'm in favor. 🌹Bakerychaz (talk page · blog)🌷 12:51, July 27, 2012 (UTC)

50th Anniversary of Battles Edit

I think there should be a speciall battle as it is the 50th aniversy somthink like a five-way battle such as Fairys vs witches vs zombies vs werwolfs vs vampires (talk) 18:40, October 8, 2012 (UTC)

Um, no please. No 5-way battle. But 4-way is still considerable. :) I think that's a good idea, though the problem is, we won't know a good yet exciting theme to make battles. Nikel Talk Vote! 12:55, October 10, 2012 (UTC)
Why doesnt there be User vs User battle or somthing
 :: Well you might find that will offend alot of people and users Y'know. DevlyHallows (talk) 07:28, January 21, 2013 (UTC)
A 4-way battle could be Winter vs. Spring vs. Summer vs. Fall. It's good since Seasons has been released now for both games. Vss2eiptalk here 10:32, January 21, 2013 (UTC)

Ideas for  battlesEdit

  1. ===Dog vs Werewolf===
  2. ===Mod vs Custom Content===
  3. ==='Baby vs T'oddler===
  4. ===Betty Newbie vs Betty Goldstein===
  5. ===Samantha Ottamas vs Brandi Broke=== (talk) 02:28, February 10, 2013 (UTC) Ammy7272


You may suggest the next battle ideas in The Sims Wiki:Battles/Nominations as long as you keep it in a correct format. Nikel Talk Vote! 14:18, February 10, 2013 (UTC)

Final count on Battle 59 Edit

Hi, I'm not an admin on here so I'm not comfortable trying to edit this myself, but I think the count for battle 59 has gone a bit wrong... the way it looks to me H&M did get 7 votes, but under the Diesel section the vote counter seems to have reset to one after the third vote, so the numbering goes 1-3 and then starts again with 1-5. Therefore, if I'm looking at it right, I make it 7-8 in favour of Diesel rather than 7-5 in favour of H&M. Just thought I ought to point this out, since no-one seems to have brought it up on the talk pages yet. :) Beatrice Monty (talk) 11:27, March 13, 2013 (UTC)

Next BattleEdit

When is the next battle? Apparently the timer on the current battle has expired. C.Syde (talk | contribs) 07:53, January 2, 2014 (UTC)

Own NominationsEdit

We can't vote for our own nominations I know. But once our nominations make the next battle, are we allowed to vote then? C.Syde (talk | contribs) 03:16, January 12, 2014 (UTC)

What would happen if someone logged out of their user name, appeared as a "wikia contributor" and voted for their nomination as if they were another user? C.Syde (talk | contribs) 03:00, January 24, 2014 (UTC)
That would be sockpuppetry. K6ka (talk | contrib) 03:06, January 24, 2014 (UTC)
I have no intention of doing it myself, but could someone successfully do that without anyone finding out? C.Syde (talk | contribs) 03:26, January 24, 2014 (UTC)
It's possible to get away with it, but it leaves you with a guilty feeling. Only users with the "CheckUser" status may look at a user's IP address - sysops and bureaucrats do not have this option - only global levels, such as VSTF, Wikia Staff, Helpers, etc. have the option. Such status is only granted to a local wiki if sockpuppetry is a problem - see this page for details. K6ka (talk | contrib) 03:51, January 24, 2014 (UTC)
Wow, I'm glad I'm not a sockpuppet. I noticed what happened to a couple of users just then. C.Syde (talk | contribs) 07:05, January 26, 2014 (UTC)
What would happen if two Sims wikia users lived in the same household. Would that raise suspicions? C.Syde (talk | contribs) 05:15, February 19, 2014 (UTC)
That's happened before. Both accounts are usually blocked and the blocked users would file long unblock requests, and a massive discussion usually takes place. Blocks made for sockpuppetry on two people using the same IP address is very unpleasant indeed - see this case for a very good (how ironic) example.

Choosing Nominations for the Next BattlesEdit

Personally I think we should use some of the topmost nominations for the next battles, mainly to get them over with and then go back to choosing the next battle via the number of votes. Of course, the topmost nominations should have some votes in order to be chosen for the next battles. 

Also I was wondering how many votes nomination needs to make a battle. C.Syde (talk | contribs) 05:13, February 19, 2014 (UTC)

The instructions only say that "Nominations will be reviewed by an administrator." Naturally I pick the one that has the most votes and comments combined. However, this does mean that older nominations that lack sufficient votes will probably never make it to battles. That would eventually lead to the nomination page becoming of unbearable size, to the point that one's computer would crash trying to load the page. We definitely need a better method of handling nominations than the current one we have. K6ka (talk | contribs) 12:13, February 19, 2014 (UTC)

Someone willing to volunteer? Edit

Looking at my calendar, it seems that this current battle (Battle 87) will end on a date where I am not available (see here for details). Is there any admin that's willing to do the next battle (hopefully someone who will know what they are doing)? K6ka (talk | contribs) 00:17, March 5, 2014 (UTC)

I'm willing to do the next few battles. Ѧüя◎ґ (talk) 05:39, March 5, 2014 (UTC)

The timer has expired. Is the next battle going to start or what? C.Syde (talk | contribs) 01:15, March 14, 2014 (UTC)

I was about to change the battle, when I noticed that Unlucky vs Loser and The Sims 2: Seasons vs The Sims 3: Seasons are tied with votes. So I didn't know what to do. Joey.eyeball (talk) 04:31, March 14, 2014 (UTC)
I'd lean towards changing it to The Sims 2: Seasons vs The Sims 3: Seasons. It's been around longer, so we should choose that one and get it over and done with. C.Syde (talk | contribs) 04:35, March 14, 2014 (UTC)
Ok, I'll start right now, though I may be slow at getting it done. Joey.eyeball (talk) 04:37, March 14, 2014 (UTC)
Done. Joey.eyeball (talk) 04:54, March 14, 2014 (UTC)

Battle Idea's - !! Edit

I think... i have an idea for the next Battle!

  • Crumplebottom Sister [Cornelia - Agnes]
  • Womanizer VS. Grumpy Mad Scientist [ Don - Mortimer ]
  • Slider Vs. Push and Pull... [Sims 3 Vs. Sims 4 Cas..]
  • Mummy Vs. Zombies [When Un-dead Meet each other...]
  • Singer?? Vs. Puppeteers [Erik Darling Vs. Robert Crumplebottom - Aka.Agnes Husband]
  • Big Sis' Vs. Lil' Sis [Gonerill - Cordelia]
  • Classical Vs. Electronica [Music]
  • Hopeless Romantic or Commitment Issue  [Trait]
  • Time Macheen Vs. Time Portal [Ambition - ITF.]

Selecting Nominations for future Battles Edit

Personally I think we should use some of the topmost nominations for the next battles, mainly to get them over with and then go back to choosing the next battle via the number of votes. Of course, the topmost nominations should have some votes in order to be chosen for the next battles. 

Personally I suggest we select Albany Capp vs. Cornwall Capp as the next battle. While it may not have the most votes, it has been waiting there for ages, and it almost certainly doesn't lack sufficient votes. C.Syde (talk | contribs) 04:04, May 8, 2014 (UTC)

Volunteering to do the next battle Edit

If no one else starts the next battle by tomorrow morning, I'm thinking of volunteering to do the next battle. C.Syde (talk | contribs) 10:02, May 9, 2014 (UTC)

Still 10 hours left though....? --k6ka (talk | contribs) 10:42, May 9, 2014 (UTC)

Yes and those 10 hours will be finished or almost finished tomorrow morning, well on my side of the world anyway. C.Syde (talk | contribs) 10:58, May 9, 2014 (UTC)

On my side of the world the timer expires this evening (ETC). I'll be around to change it by then. Good night. --k6ka (talk | contribs) 11:17, May 9, 2014 (UTC)

Idea Edit

I think we should do something that involves our fanmade sims more! We could do fanmade sims vs. fanmade sims! Beauty pageants! Fights! All sorts! If someone's interested in doing this please let me know! KIT0804

1. That's just the same as the fanon battles which are retired, and I doubt it will be resurrected.
2. Canon battles get almost no votes, so I doubt anyone is interested in battles with selfmade Sims.
