Disambiguation[edit source]

Would it be an idea to change disambiguation pages into a setup as below, using 'Music' as an example:

'Music' redirect -> 'Music (disambiguation)' -> ...links to the disambiguations.

This would mean that only the clearly (disambiguation) marked pages would show up in Orphaned pages making it easier to spot 'real' orphaned pages as you would simply disregard the disambiguations. It would also mean that one could find disambiguation pages who are not lonely and change 'what links here' to link to the correct article.

Do you think this is a good idea? Duskey(talk) 06:19, August 6, 2010 (UTC)

Yes. I think it is much clearer. Although I don't think we should redirect to disambiguation pages. Wikipedia suggests redirecting 'Music (disambiguation)' to 'Music', with 'Music' being the actual disambiguation page. Although, it wouldn't prevent users from linking to 'Music' accidentally, but it would be easier to find them and fix them. I'd rather have it redirect to a content article, but the decision to which article would have to be by consensus. --a_morris (talk) 20:19, August 6, 2010 (UTC)
I'm not following you. What would the purpose of 'Music (disambiguation)' be if 'Music' is the disambiguation article? Duskey(talk) 20:52, August 8, 2010 (UTC)
Usually you shouldn't link to a disambiguation page, you should like to the specific page. A page should only link to the disambiguation page to notify users that there are other pages of a similar topic or title that they may be looking for instead. We would use 'Music (disambiguation)' for that purpose. That way if someone links to 'Music' without realizing it is a disambiguation page we can tell that the link needs to be directed to the specific page. --a_morris (talk) 20:58, August 8, 2010 (UTC)
So the fact that Music is now a disambiguation page (without the title) is temporary? Duskey(talk) 21:12, August 8, 2010 (UTC)
I suppose the order doesn't matter as long as 'Music (disambiguation)' is used as an intentional link to the disambiguation page. --a_morris (talk) 21:23, August 8, 2010 (UTC)
I'm utterly lost :p Duskey(talk) 12:56, August 9, 2010 (UTC)

On the disambiguation and orphaned pages discussion, I'd like to argument that if you redirect from the main article (eg. Fish), to the disambiguation page (eg. Fish (disambiguation)), it is easy to disregard that page when it's orphaned. As an example I keep finding myself click on the worthington household and other disambiguation pages without the (disambiguation) suffix. If we fix all the links for all disambiguation pages one day, orphaned pages will be littered with articles like these, making it almost impossible to find new legitimate orphaned pages. In the example above, the redirect 'Fish' will still how up in the special disambig page if someone mistakingly links to it. Duskey(talk) 21:12, August 15, 2010 (UTC)

Then if we do structure it the other way (the way Wikipedia suggests), then neither will be orphans. i.e. pages with similar titles will soft redirect to the page with the (disambiguation) suffix and that article will hard redirect to the real disambiguation page. Once we clean up the mistakenly linked pages there will still be the hard redirect from the '(disambiguation)' page and only the redirect should show up in the special disamig page. --a_morris (talk) 00:37, August 16, 2010 (UTC)
And any pages with the (disambiguation) suffix that do show up in the orphaned list can be easily disregarded. --a_morris (talk) 00:44, August 16, 2010 (UTC)
Can you show me this in an example using 'Fish' or something? I'm not sure I'm getting it. Duskey(talk) 03:30, August 17, 2010 (UTC)

Families with the same name[edit source]

Perhaps we should agree having the first family with the name keep the page and link to the new one through distinguish? This would eliminate the need for a disambiguation page, but it could still be created. Duskey(talk) 14:23, August 18, 2010 (UTC)

I can agree with that. What about Sims with the same name? --a_morris (talk) 19:58, August 18, 2010 (UTC)
I would say the one which appears in a game first, some games come with Sims with the same name, maybe prioritize townies over NPCs? How would you structure it? Let's use the Kim family as an example: At the moment it's 'Kim family (Sims 2)', 'Kim family (Sims 3)' & 'Kim family' as the disambig. Personally I'd redirect 'Kim family' to 'Kim family (Sims 2)' and make sure Sims 2 & Sims 3 link to each other through distinguish links. This method makes sense to me, but it does seem like guidelines suggest otherwise. Duskey(talk) 21:13, August 18, 2010 (UTC)

Heads-up[edit source]

I just wanted to tell you ahead of time that I'm going to be temporarily inactive starting August 22nd, and ending sometime after September 1st. I'll mark myself as inactive on the Admin page, and put up a notice on my pages when the time comes. -- Patrick (LostInRiverview) (talk)(blog)(random page) 05:32, August 15, 2010 (UTC) Why?-- Danny (Monster2821) (talk)(random page) 05:34, August 15, 2010 (UTC)

I'm involved in a program at my university welcoming incoming students. Starting next Sunday I start training then start actually participating in the program, meaning my days will be dedicated to the program and my nights will be dedicated to... sleeping. -- Patrick (LostInRiverview) (talk)(blog)(random page) 05:35, August 15, 2010 (UTC)

Okay.-- Danny (Monster2821) (talk)(random page) 05:37, August 15, 2010 (UTC)

I am planning to be away around that time as well. --a_morris (talk) 15:10, August 15, 2010 (UTC)


OMG, mom and dad are outta the house, PARTY! Duskey(talk) 15:30, August 15, 2010 (UTC)

Templates[edit source]

FA templates
Are we using any of the numbered FA templates? Nothing links to them as far as I can tell and their subst uses it non-existant because of the previous featured article list. Duskey(talk) 10:40, August 15, 2010 (UTC)
These are supposed to be used by Wikia though I don't know if they actually are. See Help:Featured article system. They also haven't been updated in a while. --a_morris (talk) 15:34, August 15, 2010 (UTC)
The Featured system is quite manual. I'll see if I can clean it out one of these days. Have to make sure I don't ruin the old featured articles. Duskey(talk) 13:41, August 22, 2010 (UTC)
Newpage templates
These are used together with subst when creating a new page from scratch, right? Or just for copy+paste? Duskey(talk) 10:45, August 15, 2010 (UTC)
They fill in a new page automatically, similar to if you copied & pasted. They are never transcluded so subst is unnecessary. See MediaWiki:Newarticletext. --a_morris (talk) 15:34, August 15, 2010 (UTC)
Ah right, don't think I've ever used any of those :p Duskey(talk) 20:43, August 15, 2010 (UTC)
To update them, do you just copy+paste the bare example from the original template? Duskey(talk) 07:15, August 17, 2010 (UTC)
Basically. --a_morris (talk) 14:46, August 17, 2010 (UTC)

List of Sims[edit source]

There're some orphaned Sims in Special:LonelyPages. I don't mind adding them, but where do I do that? List of Sims (alpha)? Isn't it "double-work" if I have to add them to that list and then the list with Sims by games and then List of Sims from x game and all that? :s Duskey(talk) 07:17, August 17, 2010 (UTC)

List of Sims by game is a list of lists, just put the Sims on the alpha list and the list for their specific game. --a_morris (talk) 17:02, August 17, 2010 (UTC)
Alright, I added the orphaned ones. I don't get these lists of sims though, isn't this what categories are for? And whouldn't a table be better so you can automatically sort them alphabetically? Duskey(talk) 18:16, August 17, 2010 (UTC)
Wikipedia:Wikipedia:Manual of Style (lists) -> There are benefits despite redundancy. --a_morris (talk) 18:21, August 17, 2010 (UTC)
So on a perfect wiki there would be category and a list for everything? Duskey(talk) 13:52, August 18, 2010 (UTC)

Sims Answers Wiki[edit source]

Hey A morris, I'm not sure if you know this already, but Wikia now allows wikis to make their own answers wikis for them. I think it would be a great idea to make a Sims Answers Wiki, but what do you think? --Random Ranaun 04:56, August 18, 2010 (UTC)

Nevermind, I found out that there already is a Sims Answers Wiki, but it is largely unused. Do you think that we could add some links to it around this wiki to make it more popular? --Random Ranaun 05:04, August 18, 2010 (UTC)

I'm just chiming in here. I think it should be discussed or at least people shoule be made aware on the community portal talk page. It depends whether you want another place "off-site" to answer Sims questions other than the forum. Not that anyone really uses either place. Duskey(talk) 13:40, August 18, 2010 (UTC)
The Q&A format Answers uses might be easier for some users to use than the forum. Forum:Questions links to Wikia Answers already but it could link to The Sims Answers instead. --a_morris (talk) 19:57, August 18, 2010 (UTC)
Like many projects, I think it needs a driving force behind it. By that I mean someone who builds it up and takes cares of it while it grows. I believe that the idea behind the admin positions, to name an example. If someone is willing to do that, I think it would be a cool idea. We could answer questions and then link to our page where you can find the information, or it would be a incentive to add some information we might not have thought neccesary before. Duskey(talk) 21:06, August 18, 2010 (UTC)

Template includeonly[edit source]

Remind me, what's the point of #if: {{{1<includeonly>|</includeonly>? I mean the noincludes? Duskey(talk) 03:07, August 19, 2010 (UTC)

The includeonly means to only show in the article the template is transcluded in or, alternatively, to show how the template is structured by showing the parameters on the template page (instead of the value). It is normally used in the output.

Ex. 1 {{#if: {{{1}}} | '''{{{1}}}''' }} results in {{{1}}} in both the template and the article.

Ex. 2 {{#if: {{{1}}} | {{{1|}}} }} results in in both the template and the article.

Ex. 3 {{#if: {{{1}}} | '''{{{1<includeonly>|</includeonly>}}}''' }} results in {{{1}}} in the template only and like Ex. 2 in the article.

--a_morris (talk) 18:24, August 20, 2010 (UTC)

Ah right, so it shows the parameter in the template, but hides it if it's empty in the article? Duskey(talk) 20:48, August 20, 2010 (UTC)

New Idea[edit source]

Hey A morris, can you look at this and this? They are these Wiki battles where users can nominate a fight consisting of any two characters, game features, etc. After a fight is chosen, users can then vote for who or what they want to win. It seems like a really fun idea, and there are many things in The Sims series that could be used in these fights, so I wanted to know if we could incorporate it here. What do you think? --Random Ranaun 04:34, August 20, 2010 (UTC)

I saw this on MySims Wiki, but I like the one-on-one format better. It could definitely be done here. Did you want to start one? --a_morris (talk) 18:43, August 20, 2010 (UTC)
Yeah! But how do you think we should make it? --Random Ranaun 18:52, August 20, 2010 (UTC)
I just finished the battle layout. Here it is. What do you think? --Random Ranaun 20:21, August 20, 2010 (UTC)
Good. --a_morris (talk) 20:47, August 20, 2010 (UTC)
Now, about the page name, the FF wiki and the KH wiki both use names of in-game areas for their battle pages. So, I was thinking that maybe we could call it The Sims Wiki:Llama Memorial Stadium. What do you think? --Random Ranaun 20:54, August 20, 2010 (UTC)
I think you should make a post about it on the Community Portal talk page so everyone gets a chance to have a say. Some people might have some nice ideas that we'll want to add. Give people some days to reply. Duskey(talk) 21:28, August 20, 2010 (UTC)
I just added it to the Community Portal. I really hope people like the idea. --Random Ranaun 22:29, August 20, 2010 (UTC)

Re: Heads Up[edit source]

So... I said I was going to be absent after the 22nd... it turns out I'm losing my internet connection today, in about 8 hours. I've marked myself as absent on my pages and on the administrator page, but I'll try and sneak back on a couple times when I can to do various things. Just thought you should know. See you in September! -- Patrick (LostInRiverview) (talk)(blog)(random page) 04:51, August 20, 2010 (UTC)

Are you absent?[edit source]

Are you absent because you haven't been editing recently?-- Danny (Monster2821) (talk)(random page) 11:44, August 20, 2010 (UTC)

I've been a bit busy. Sorry. --a_morris (talk) 19:07, August 20, 2010 (UTC)

Bloglisting not updating[edit source]

I made two blog posts recently for the main page, but they're not showing up. I tried purging the pages, but that didn't help. They don't show up in their bloglisting's either nor my personal blog thingy. They can be found in the categories though. I was wondering if this has happened before or whether you know anything about it. Duskey(talk) 03:23, August 21, 2010 (UTC)

I have noticed that they don't show up right away. --a_morris (talk) 03:27, August 21, 2010 (UTC)
Seems it was a bug across wikia, but it's fixed now. Only took about a day for them to show up even after I purged them :p Duskey(talk) 22:12, August 21, 2010 (UTC)

Good work both of you. I was planning on having Vicky do it, but the bot software (AWB) is incompatible with Wikia at the moment. They're hoping it'll be fixed this wedensday, but who knows. Where was I? Ah yes, well done! Duskey(talk) 13:36, August 22, 2010 (UTC)

RE: While I'm away...[edit source]

Sure. Any particular vote/contest thing poll you had in mind for next week? Duskey(talk) 02:50, August 22, 2010 (UTC)

How do I work that into a one-week poll? I believe his idea is to make it a regular thing. In my opinion we shouldn't ditch the monthly contest for the battle system. I'll just use one of the other examples in Bleeh's blog. Duskey(talk) 03:08, August 22, 2010 (UTC)

Spyro Wiki[edit source]

Six months ago, I was a shy wikian who was never noticed. And now, I am an admin at the Spyro wiki. I want this wiki to have sistership with our wiki, but I just don't know what to say. We are in need of more help, and you guys have lots of help. Please don't let us be forgotten. UxieLover1994 13:31, August 22, 2010 (UTC)

Oh, and one more thing. At our wiki, we never forget our helpers, and we reply to messages. Currently, then only active admins are ZACH, Aura24 and I (all the others have ether left or are ocupide with other wikis). I am awere of this wiki's struggle, and I see you have lots of people here everyday. Please don't forget about the Spyro wiki! UxieLover1994 06:10, August 23, 2010 (UTC)
I started a discussion on the subject at our Community Portal. Future discussion should be taken there. UxieLover is also welcome to join in, to speak for his suggestion. Duskey(talk) 06:20, August 23, 2010 (UTC)
I am hopeing that the Spyro wiki and Bandipedia can get more help. I beleave that popular wikia such as this one should help the run down wikis. Is that a good idea? (And Duskey, I am a really girl!) UxieLover1994 06:35, August 23, 2010 (UTC)

The Sims 2 Castaway[edit source]

Hello A morris. I was just about to add pages for the Sims in The Sims 2 Castaway (DS) when I noticed that there isn't a Simbio for that game. Should we make one? If yes, what parameters should we have? Also, I think that we should create a The Sims 2 Castaway (DS) article, since the DS version is very different from the other ones. What do you think? --Random Ranaun 06:06, August 23, 2010 (UTC)

Sims from consoles and handhelds can usually use the same templates as the PC versions, i.e. {{Sim2}} & {{Simbio2}} with the game = The Sims 2 Castaway (DS), unless it is quite different from other games. I don't know this game at all. You can create a new template using the master template, {{Sim}} or {{Simbio}}, with the game parameter default set to The Sims 2 Castaway (DS), but if the master template needs changing can we discuss it when I get back? You can start on the article. --a_morris (talk) 16:42, August 23, 2010 (UTC)

Also,i heard you are vary tired and since you are the only 'crat i figured i'll help you out.-- Danny (Monster2821) (talk)(random page) 18:04, August 29, 2010 (UTC)
I have few things I'd like to get off my chest upong seeing this conversation:
  • Rollback requests ARE open, they almost always are. The reason GG's request has taken so long is that our only active bureaucrat has been away for a few days, just be patient.
  • If Monster wants the sysop request page open, then we can discuss that, that's fine. Remember that there needs to be concensus (meaning people agree on it).
  • The bureaucrat page is closed because we're discussing how to handle requests or nominations in the future. It is definately not okay to give ultimatums to other admins or issue 'deadlines'. Remember that many users are on different continents and none has any idea when "1:00 PM" is since we're all in different timezones. Use the UTC time format like signatures does.
  • It most certainly is not simple. Once someone becomes a bureaucrat that are difficult to demote again. A bureaucrat can easily do long term damage to a wiki if they are not up for job.

This is directed at Monster: You can help people easily by being an admin. You can even help people just be being a user here on the wiki. Admins only have 2 extra buttons on the wiki. "Delete" and "move file", there's almost no difference between regular users and admins. Why do you wish to become a bureaucrat so bad? Levels are not 'promotions' or 'rewards'. Duskey(talk) 18:12, August 29, 2010 (UTC)

I'm saying it's simple because y'all trust me,don't y'all?-- Danny (Monster2821) (talk)(random page) 18:18, August 29, 2010 (UTC)

Why are positions so hard to get?it's not like I'm becoming a president.-- Danny (Monster2821) (talk)(random page) 18:28, August 29, 2010 (UTC)
To be perfectly honest, no. I don't think you really understand exactly what a bureaucrat does or why it's important that selecting them be done correctly. And to be honest, if I had to promote an administrator to a bureaucrat, you wouldn't be my first choice. You simply don't know enough, and there's no good way to put that where it doesn't sound insulting, so I'm sorry about that. You seem entirely too impatient, and when you're stuck waiting, you get even more impatient and start acting out, which doesn't make you look any better and only makes me favor you less. So while I have nothing against you as an administrator or as a member or a person, I do not and will not support your bid for bureaucrat.
My apologies, A morris, for having this "go down" on your talkpage. I'm just a little sick of holding my tongue on the matter. -- Patrick (LostInRiverview) (talk)(blog)(random page) 21:05, August 29, 2010 (UTC)

Inactive Admin Warnings[edit source]

Hi A morris. I added the inactive admin policy to the main Admin page since it was approved. I also checked to see which admins are inactive currently, and only Bleeh and JAL currently fit the description of 'inactive.' I don't think it's my place to issue them an inactivitiy warning on their talk page, however, so I wanted you to be aware of that, so you can take it into your own hands. -- Patrick (LostInRiverview) (talk)(blog)(random page) 22:38, August 29, 2010 (UTC)

On a related note: [2] Duskey(talk) 19:46, September 1, 2010 (UTC)

Requests[edit source]

Hi. I'd like to request that User:VickyBot becomes an administrator. I didn't add this to the request page since I wanted your personal opinion on it. Now since I'm in completely control of that account there's no reason to discuss whether the account is worthy of the title or not. I've become quite proficient in using the bot software now. I suggest the promotion in order to delete the many duplicate moodlet image whom are also unused. This process is a lot easier with a bot.

In the future other tasks would also benefit from having an admin bot, such as:

  • Easy mass-deletion
  • Major tasks even on protected pages
  • Moving multiple images easily (to make them show in the file search which only takes file names)

Lemme know what you think.

PS: There's still a rollback request on the request pages and it looks good. Duskey(talk) 16:30, August 31, 2010 (UTC)

Admin Requests ?[edit source]

Hello A morris sorry bother you but when will admin requests open? I am iterested in Admin position and I improved many articles and my horrible spell and help in vandalize situations.

<uberfuzzy> Duskey, re: de-cratting, linking to a chat is always a good idea
<uberfuzzy> also, if possible, de-sysop them first, then ask for us, so that its clear that the wiki people are removing them, and we're just doing that part that you cant

Opening admin positions[edit source]

Can i open the admin request page,since duskey said i can discuss it?-- Danny (Monster2821) (talk)(random page) 21:59, September 4, 2010 (UTC)

Shouldn't we discuss it instead of opening them then? :D Duskey(talk) 02:30, September 5, 2010 (UTC)
okay,let's discuss it.-- Danny (Monster2821) (talk)(random page) @[3] 05:20, September 5, 2010 (UTC)
We may have two openings by the end of the month. We have 13 sysops, 4 are active daily, 2 inactive or almost inactive, and the rest contribute sporadically. We should discuss how many we need. With the release of several games this fall we may need more active admins. --a_morris (talk) 18:16, September 5, 2010 (UTC)
With our current size and activity I'd say we're good on admins, though I imagine the release of LN and TS3 console will be hectic. Duskey(talk) 20:59, September 5, 2010 (UTC)
When will you open the request page I want candidate myself ;). Thanks very much -----Guilherme Guerreiro 16:20, September 18, 2010 (UTC)

Monthly stuff[edit source]

I created The Sims Wiki:Clean up of the month as well as a redirect to this month's Cleanup: Cuotm, which should be the one edited instead of the menu, at least in my opinion. On the talk page I thought we could discuss future areas in need of cleaning.

I also recommend you check out the discussion/mini-project of cleaning up the Featured Content system: The Sims Wiki talk:Community Portal#Featured content cleanup. --Duskeytalk 13:59, September 15, 2010 (UTC)

Creating a new section on Family template[edit source]

I have a suggestion, why don't we create a new section on family templates with their economicstatus, I'm done of searching for rich families in the wiki to add the rich families category, I think it is good suggestionas we already have the economicsatus section for the Sim template. Thanks for all attention. ---Guilherme Guerreiro 21:32, October 9, 2010 (UTC)

No response? Didn't like my suggestion? ---Guilherme Guerreiro 21:46, October 9, 2010 (UTC)

It does make more sense to have it in the family template in most cases. --a_morris (talk) 21:48, October 9, 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for ading this to your To do :). ---Guilherme Guerreiro (talk here) 21:20, October 22, 2010 (UTC)

Yey, now lets include categories to the economic status, please say me which categories are you going to include to the template. ---Guilherme Guerreiro (talk here) 15:40, October 24, 2010 (UTC)

Please don't forget leaving a response. ---Guilherme Guerreiro (talk here) 15:51, October 24, 2010 (UTC)

Right now anything that is put into the economic status parameter will become a category.
[[Category:{{{economicstatus}}} families]]
ex. If economicstatus is "Rich" the category will be "Category: Rich families", if the economicstatus is "Poor" the category is "Category: Poor families", etc. --a_morris (talk) 16:00, October 24, 2010 (UTC)
Well could you please check Curious family cause I can't add that, I don't why. ---Guilherme Guerreiro (talk here) 16:33, October 24, 2010 (UTC)

Vandalism[edit source]

There has been a lot of vandalism arround here like someone did with this category: Category: Neighborhoods, and also with Werewolf, we should active some kind of system because some admins were here but they didn't check the pages, I think some people should get the right of checking most of pages during their active time, for example you would get this rights but if you were not active there would be someone to replace, just a suggestion, don't forget leaving a response, Also is it soon the opening sysop requests? Thanks much ---Guilherme Guerreiro (talk here) 20:30, October 24, 2010 (UTC)

I sent a message to Wikia staff, and posted the response I got at User blog:Dharden/Response from Wikia about achievements . In short, it was a sponsored "premium achievement", and allowing it requires enabling achievements overall. I was told "We have been doing this with a few wikis but this was the first wiki that didn't have Achievements enabled (much less the first one that had said they didn't want it), so the policy on this matter was not clear." IOW, Staff admits that a mistake was made but says they are under contract and will honor it. I was also told "The campaign ends November 21st and I have gotten permission from Ads and our Support manager to turn off Achievements at that time." Dharden (talk) 22:45, October 25, 2010 (UTC)

Re: Achievements[edit source]

What do you mean by achievements activated?

Soymilkee 21:27, October 25, 2010 (UTC)

Sorry for the spam, my computer wasn't working so I accidently hit it to much. :S

I did not contact a staff, I actually didn't know they needed to be enabled.

Fwd: Platinum Badge Promo Image[edit source]

Hi A morris. I received this message on my talkpage from JoePlay on Wikia staff:

Hi LostInRiverview. Apologies for the way The Sims 3 Late Night blog post/achievements situation happened. There was a definite lack of communication on our end. As Tim said, the achievements can be disabled as soon as the campaign ends.

Also, we need to add a 300x250 promo image to the main page somewhere. Would it be alright to add it at the top of the right "column" (under the Contents section and above the Features section)? Again, this would only be for the duration of The Sims 3: Late Night campaign. If you would rather it appear in a different location, please let me know by replying on my talk page when you get a chance. Thanks. JoePlay (talk) 18:51, October 26, 2010 (UTC)

I don't really feel comfortable telling them that they can throw an image on our mainpage, so I decided to send this to you (and Dharden) instead. -- LostInRiverview talk · blog 20:23, October 26, 2010 (UTC)

Featured Articles and Media duties[edit source]

Hi A morris.

I've been trying to keep an eye on the Featured Article and Featured Media pages, as well as I've swapped out the old articles and photos for the past couple months. I was just wondering if you'd be interested in "officially" making me responsible for those two items, since you seem to have a lot on your plate. I'm more than willing to put my time into maintaining those pages. I won't be disappointed if you decide not to, this is just a friendly offer to take it over if you would like.

Thanks! -- LostInRiverview talk · blog 04:44, October 27, 2010 (UTC)

For some reason, I still can't get the categories to show up. Do you know what's wrong? —Random Ranaun (Talk to me!) 06:07, November 2, 2010 (UTC)

Console, handheld, and mobile games[edit source]

Hey A morris, should we separate the console, handheld, and mobile games? I mean, they're always lumped together (the Wiki Project, The Sims series template, etc.) even though they are all very different. I think that the console, handheld, and mobile games project should be separated into three individual projects, the sections on the Sims template should also separate, and, they should be referred to as just a console game, handheld game, or mobile game in The Sims series. What do you think? —Random Ranaun (Talk to me!) 07:47, November 14, 2010 (UTC)

I agree that their may need to be more differentiation between the three media, however you should take it up on the Community Portal. If you are looking for something to do, take a look at The Sims Wiki:Todo/Bustin' Out Sims. I have no experience with handhelds or mobile games so can't do it. --a_morris (talk) 18:28, November 14, 2010 (UTC)

I have The Sims 2 (console), The Sims 2 Castaway (Nintendo DS), The Sims 2 (Nintendo DS), The Sims 2 (GBA), The Sims 2 Pets (console), and The Sims 2 (PSP), so I could really help out a bunch! [Ѧüя◎ґ] 20:10, November 14, 2010 (UTC)

Joethatblackguy[edit source]

Hey A morris, I looked up Joethatblackguy in the block logs, and it says that he is not blocked, even though, in my opinion, he should be after all of the sockpuppeting and harassment he did. Also, look at this. Should we delete all of his subpages? —Random Ranaun (Talk to me!) 05:42, November 15, 2010 (UTC)

I've infinitely blocked him. Feel free to delete the subpages. He was asked to move them to The Sims Fanon Wiki but never did. There was a proposal that a permanently blocked user's subpages should be deleted, though it wasn't made policy. --a_morris (talk) 22:25, November 16, 2010 (UTC)
It took a while, but I deleted all the subpages. Dharden (talk) 17:15, November 18, 2010 (UTC)
Thanks, Dharden. --a_morris (talk) 21:31, November 18, 2010 (UTC)

Category:Sims that may have dyed the hair[edit source]

Sorry for the grammar mistakes on this category I will help moving it. Also we could make the category page redirecting to the other category page with the correct name. What do you think? Thanks ---Guilherme Guerreiro (talk here) 10:38, November 20, 2010 (UTC)

The category is now unused, you can delete it, if you want. --Guilherme Guerreiro (talk here) 18:56, November 20, 2010 (UTC)

Weekly poll[edit source]

Since I've replaced the monthly contest this month (due to lack of contest ideas) with a weekly poll, I've found that I am all out of ideas for future weekly polls. By my count, we still need another (slightly extended) weekly poll to round out the month, but I have no idea what it should be. So, do you have any ideas for a question we can ask. As well, do you have an idea for what December's featured contest should be (if any)? Thanks -- LostInRiverview talk · blog 19:52, November 21, 2010 (UTC)

Inactive admin policy[edit source]

I would like to propose a new section to the policy:If a person is recently "promoted" and they leave or go absent without a valid reason,there rights are revoked.Does this sound okay if not feel free to change it or scrap it altogether.--Monster2821 talk 22:34, November 25, 2010 (UTC)

I don't think it is necessary to have a separate policy for the recently promoted. The admin doing the promoting would be better to check if they have been on recently before giving the promotion or asking the user if they still want to be promoted if the request is not recent. --a_morris (talk) 01:26, November 26, 2010 (UTC)
I would like to open R.F.B. because there is only two active 'crat's you and dharden.--Monster2821 talk 03:00, November 28, 2010 (UTC)
Now, before a_morris says anything, I would like to say something. No, I really don't think that, the Request for Bureaucrat rights should not be open. I know that you will try to request, and you really don't deserve it. I'm not trying to be harsh to you, but you're trying to hard to become a bureaucrat. Like Dharden said, "When you're in a hole, stop digging". Another thing. What's the point of revoking rights of a user that was recently promoted? It's pointless. That specific user earned his right and respect of the community, and if he has a good reason for being absent, than he shouldn't be punished. Well, thanks for reading my rant. On a side note, if you disagree with that statement that you're trying to hard, I can pull out the old archives of messages from a_morris's talk page. [Ѧüя◎ґ] 06:19, November 28, 2010 (UTC)
I must agree with Auror, I think you do your job well but you are trying to become a bureaucrat so badly making people not voting in you, you seriously need to improve your behaviour. --Guilherme Guerreiro (talk here) 10:52, November 28, 2010 (UTC)
I'm not wanting to become a bureaucrat , we just need more 'crats.--Monster2821 talk 16:02, November 28, 2010 (UTC)
You might be telling what you really think but after all incidents most people will not believe in you. --Guilherme Guerreiro (talk here) 16:06, November 28, 2010 (UTC)
How do I get people to believe me , then?--Monster2821 talk 16:35, November 28, 2010 (UTC)

List of Sims from Late Night[edit source]

Hi a_morris, how have you been? Do you need help with List of Sims from Late Night, what can I do for you? Thanks for stoping by. --Guilherme Guerreiro (talk here) 16:13, November 28, 2010 (UTC)

Need help or not? Also did you adopt this Wiki? Thanks --Guilherme Guerreiro (talk here) 16:23, November 28, 2010 (UTC)

I have one question about the name of a sims. I left a message about it on your talk page. I didn't adopt it exactly. I started editing just before Makiah left and she promoted me to sysop. --a_morris (talk) 16:27, November 28, 2010 (UTC)
I have already fixed the name of him, it is Harvey Mule. How did you become a bureaucrat, who promoted you since Makiaah was the only 'crat, am I wrong? Thanks --Guilherme Guerreiro (talk here) 16:38, November 28, 2010 (UTC)
I think it was Ppiotr.--Monster2821 talk 16:41, November 28, 2010 (UTC)
I have added Gage Briody to List of Sims from The Sims 3 (base game) you can take him away from your Unlisted Sims. --Guilherme Guerreiro (talk here) 16:45, November 28, 2010 (UTC)

Question about applying for positions[edit source]

Hi A Morris. According to the Request for Adminship page, there are other positions open to application. My questions are; are those positions open to any member and, if those positions are open to everyone, where would an applicant apply for them? Thanks. - LostInRiverview talk · blog 03:03, December 8, 2010 (UTC)

Just for the record, I do have a user in mind for a specific position, and I want to know the procedure for filling a position before I go ahead. Would it be out-of-line in your opinion for me to nominate a user for an open position?
The positions are open to any trusted member, though they might need to be promoted to be able to do the job. They can apply on the rfa page, unless you think positions deserve their own page. I don't see any reason why you can't suggest someone for a position. --a_morris (talk) 03:36, December 8, 2010 (UTC)

Net Problems[edit source]

Hi a_morris I am having net problems, when I try to edit a page it takes lots of time to load, because of that I am using firefox but I don't like it and I would like to use normal net again, so you have any suggestion to solve this problem? Thanks so much for reading. --Guilherme Guerreiro (talk here) 17:23, December 11, 2010 (UTC)

Userboxes[edit source]

I didn't know about this but I created one userbox for divorced users but actually there are two with this function, this and this, which one do you want to keep? Thanks --Guilherme Guerreiro (talk here) 11:34, December 12, 2010 (UTC)

I doesn't really matter since neither are being used. I think using the past tense, "divorced", makes more sense. --a_morris (talk) 17:47, December 12, 2010 (UTC)
Should User:Guilherme Guerreiro/Sims with no memories written in articles be a Wiki todo? Thanks so much. --Guilherme Guerreiro (talk here) 18:13, December 12, 2010 (UTC)
Please give me a response or I will assume you are ignoring me, or it is just because you are busy? Thanks so much. --Guilherme Guerreiro (talk here) 20:58, December 12, 2010 (UTC)
Sorry, I couldn't answer before. Wikia was having problems. In answer, if it is something you feel is important and can not do alone, go ahead and make it a todo. --a_morris (talk) 21:56, December 12, 2010 (UTC)
Ok, sorry I should have thought on that. --Guilherme Guerreiro (talk here) 22:01, December 12, 2010 (UTC)
