December 2018 Community News

So this is what it looks like outside right now.

A dreary snowless December

But hey, no worries; I'm sure the snow will come before Christmas this year! While we're waiting for that lovely white powder to come down, how about we, uh, give you an update on the wiki?

Build Snowman
A Christmas theme for the wiki

It's now December, and the clock is ticking towards December 25! We are still looking for your input on this theme! Specifically, we're looking for help with images; if you have some good image editing skills, or if you have The Sims 4 and can contribute some good quality screenshots, please do so! Please see the forum thread if you'd like to help out!

A formal request to disable "Featured Videos"

"Featured Videos" are a highly controversial feature that FANDOM (AKA Wikia, the website that runs the wiki hosting service we're located on), where videos will appear on select pages that are irremovably placed at the top of the page and autoplay. The use of these videos are highly controversial, since they detract from the written article's content, and are forcefully implemented without the community's consent. I wrote a blog post about them about a month ago, and we are currently looking to push back on this unpopular change as a community. Please drop any comments you may have at the forum thread that we created to gain consensus for this request to FANDOM Staff to have the feature disabled.

Celebrity star
New featured article for the month!

The Celebrity status article has been selected to be the featured article for the month of December 2018! Featured articles are hand-picked selections from the community that are crowned as being one of the best articles we have. Featured articles are chosen based on their readability and the amount of information they contain, and they're not chosen by a secretive council, but by community members—people like YOU!
