Input[edit source]

Hey A morris! Could you please give your input here ? Thank you! BobNewbie talkblog 20:11, December 12, 2010 (UTC)

Suggestion[edit source]

Hi again, why haven't you answer to my above questions? Forward, I suggest that we could create new type of list, this type of list would be "Sims by lifestate" this page would have the links to "List of Vampires", "List of Ghosts", etc. What's your point about this? Thanks so much. --Guilherme Guerreiro (talk here) 21:12, December 12, 2010 (UTC)

Yes. A list of aliens is already started. --a_morris (talk) 22:05, December 12, 2010 (UTC)

Width of Admin Portal[edit source]

Do you know why The Sims Wiki:Admin Portal is so wide? I tried going into the page itself to narrow it down, but I'm not exactly sure how. Thanks. -- LostInRiverview talk · blog 04:09, December 14, 2010 (UTC)

On an oddly related note, can you please go to my test page and help me with figuring out #if statements (specifically related to displaying a WikiButton with custom background color on my talk page)? I've been trying any conceivable combination of text, bars and {{!}} templates to produce the desired effect (that is, that the field {{{color}}} be an optional field on my test page template); I've been working on it for over an hour and I have no idea what I am doing wrong and I frankly don't have the energy to continue to slave away on it, or to try and decipher this page anymore. The logic seems so basic that I feel honestly very dumb for not having figured it out by now, but I am literally clueless at this point.
Thanks; -- LostInRiverview talk · blog 07:30, December 14, 2010 (UTC)

Warning[edit source]

The constrainFloorElavation cheat should not be featured on the List of build cheats page because it only works on some versions of the game making it not an official cheat. Homerjs 04:19, December 14, 2010 (UTC)

As previously cited, you removed that caveat along with the cheat: [1]. --a_morris (talk) 04:34, December 14, 2010 (UTC)

Bot?[edit source]

Since Duskey appears to have left wiki our wiki's bot is now inactive too, should we create a new bot to fulfill bot tasks? Thanks. --Guilherme Guerreiro (talk here) 11:20, December 18, 2010 (UTC)

Yes. I have been thinking of using a bot myself as well. --a_morris (talk) 14:21, December 18, 2010 (UTC)
Did you contact wiki about this? Isn't it necessary a permission from main wiki? Thanks so much. --Guilherme Guerreiro (talk here) 18:37, December 18, 2010 (UTC)

Riverblossom Hills[edit source]

Hello i was just wondering why dont Riverblossom Hills have a Player stories page?Ellen Carli 17:35, December 18, 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for the Wiki and Opportunities.[edit source]

A morris, I want to thank you for founding this wiki, it inspired me to start my own wiki to keep track of and properly plan my TS3 worlds. I'm still a total n00b at wiki-editing, so I have drawn a lot of my knowledge from the pages here and there are obvious similarities that I'm gradually scaling away as I learn more:

I hope that's not a problem. I'll be contributing here more again now that my TS3 remake of Riverblossom Hills is finally complete. The Riverblossom Hills pages here were invaluable in getting the characters' details right.

Thank you very much,


I accept your thanks on behalf of all editors on The Sims Wiki and hope to see you again. --a_morris (talk) 20:55, December 18, 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for creating a bot, would you mind if I ask to decorate A bot's user page. Thanks --Guilherme Guerreiro (talk here) 20:44, December 18, 2010 (UTC)

go ahead. --a_morris (talk) 20:55, December 18, 2010 (UTC)
Do you appreciate A bot's decoration, if not feel free to change it :D. --Guilherme Guerreiro (talk here) 16:22, December 19, 2010 (UTC)

The Sims Series[edit source]

Hey A morris, I created a table on the Main Page that has a list of the games. I tried many times to make the table collapsible, but I just can't get it to work. Do you know how to make it collapsible? —Random Ranaun (Talk to me!) 02:17, December 19, 2010 (UTC)

Time To Give Credit Where Credit Is Due[edit source]

Hey A morris! I was just struck aghast by the fact that you don't have any (well, almost) awards! Here are some you truly deserve:

Moodlet winner trophy win.png Moodlet no frame over worked work.png Moodlet cheered up happy.png Award hat.png
  • Trophy: Achieving your and the wiki's goals
  • Desk: Your hard work
  • Smile: For being friendly all the time
  • Hat: Your skills when editing

--BobNewbie talkblog 17:35, December 19, 2010 (UTC)

Congrats, a_morris! I was thinking in giving you awards too but Bob did it first!! Congrats, you sincerely deserve them! --Guilherme Guerreiro (talk here) 17:38, December 19, 2010 (UTC)

Fanon wiki merge[edit source]

Hi A morris. I brought up the discussion about merging with the Fanon Wiki again here. Could you read it and tell me what you think? —Random Ranaun (Talk to me!) 23:28, December 21, 2010 (UTC)

Additionally, I've created a section on the Admin portal talk to find consensus among admins... your opinion there would be useful as I'm looking to get the opinions of most, if not all, of the active admin staff before this idea moves forward. You can find the section here. Thanks - LostInRiverview talk · blog 04:52, December 22, 2010 (UTC)

bvbfan1[edit source]

how do u make userboxes? i never got the real instructions on how to do this!!!!

Problems with Sim template[edit source]

Hi. Somewhere something is messed up to where one of the Sim templates (possibly {{Sim3}}). I tried undoing Eduardog's edit but that didn't fix the issue. The template (whichever one is bugging up) is causing the Sim's favorite food and favorite color categories to red-link to categories where the favorite item is given in lowercase instead of upper case (for example: Category:Sims that love Aqua in the "correct" set-up, to Category:Sims that love aqua in the current set-up). Since those pages with lowercase names don't exist, they show up as red links.

Sorry I can't be a little more technically descriptive, but I'm not really sure what's causing this mess or how to address it. If you need an example of what I'm saying, take a look at the pages for any Sim from TS3. - LostInRiverview talk · blog 18:57, December 23, 2010 (UTC)

I have changed the {{Favorites}} to lowercase as that is the proper case when naming categories. I am also going to changing them the to Category:Sims who love aqua. I haven't gotten around to making the category changes yet. See also {{GetFavoritesCat}}. --a_morris (talk) 17:01, December 24, 2010 (UTC)

Awards[edit source]

Hey A Morris! I know you may be very busy, but I just want to make sure you got the awards. Merry Christmas! BobNewbie talkblog 17:19, December 24, 2010 (UTC)

Merry Christmas! --a_morris (talk) 19:54, December 24, 2010 (UTC)

Email[edit source]

Hey A morris, Auror told me (via IRC) to check your emails. Thanks! GG (t)(c)(b) 21:45, December 24, 2010 (UTC)

2 things[edit source]

after realizing that you will not get my message because I edited someone elses question lol accident

here it is

You know what would be really cool? On all careers you could put a picture of the male and female uniform as another box next to the skills. And it would be nice if the grids where fixed and the description wasn's so thin.
thanksJr.simpson27 10:54, December 25, 2010 (UTC)
and another thing, I want to create a family tree of my sims. I downloaded the mega hood and want to connect all the families and make a family tree of it. I think it would be cool to see, and then to have myself do it, HOT DOG! lol but anyway, your family trees, how do you pull the icons of those sims? If thats to vauge Ill detail it. You have a fmaily tree of the smith's and Jenny's picture is in its respected place, that picture of her came from where in the files?
Thanks again Jr.simpson27 10:54, December 25, 2010 (UTC)

Merry Christmas[edit source]

I wish you a wonderful christmas, and I hope you are enjoying this magic time. I hope you're achieving your personal goals. Best wishes. --Guilherme Guerreiro (talk here) 13:30, December 25, 2010 (UTC)

Thank you. Enjoy, yourself. --a_morris (talk) 20:25, December 28, 2010 (UTC)

Community Portal[edit source]

I'm glad to see you like the Community Portal redesign. I had started work on it yesterday afternoon and (thankfully) BobNewbie started working with me on it; in this case, two heads were definitely better than one, and I'm really pleased with the result, though I have made a couple changes since we went "public" with it.

My thought is that in order for the page to really live up to its potential, we need to start treating it like a hub and a resource center. That's why we added things like Community News, and a section for the poll and contest (which are off the Mainpage at the moment). Additionally, I added in a spot for community notices (I created a {{Community-Notice}} template), so if you ever have something you need to post or make known, feel free to add a message there.

I'm sure Bob and I will still be tweaking things a bit as we gather the opinions of the other users. If you see something odd or something which bugs you, feel free to join in tweaking as well! - LostInRiverview talk · blog 21:24, December 28, 2010 (UTC)

How can I get a bot? It's for the Sims Medieval Wiki where I am an admin on, thank you. --Guilherme Guerreiro (talk here) 23:02, December 28, 2010 (UTC)

Thank you a morris it's helping me out:). --Guilherme Guerreiro (talk here) 11:22, December 29, 2010 (UTC)

Wikia staff marked an account owned by me as a bot in Medieval Wiki, but I can't see what automated tasks that can do I don't have any automatic tools, I wonder if you could help me out? Because I think I'm just being dumb and not seeing what bots can do, can you help me with bot tools? Thank you. --Guilherme Guerreiro (talk here) 12:30, December 31, 2010 (UTC)

Great change Propose[edit source]

I want to propose you a great change on templates of sims from Sims 3 and sims 3 sections, could you please see this article in Les Sims Wiki, Cornelia Goth, I love the way it's organised, and I would like to propose that we could put images of icons for example bookworm in people who have the bookworm trait, unflirty would display for example File:Unflirty.jpg, just an example, I think it would be good if you had images and icons in templates, can you make such definition, please tell me what you think. Thank you. --Guilherme Guerreiro (talk here) 13:01, December 31, 2010 (UTC)

We could also make the same to age, sign, sex and relationships, Les Sims Wiki has much better relationship files than what we have. Thanks --Guilherme Guerreiro (talk here) 13:05, December 31, 2010 (UTC)

Please respond to this it's a change proposal. Thank you. --Guilherme Guerreiro (talk here) 00:54, January 1, 2011 (UTC)

I like that too. I had a similar idea but it wasn't implemented. --a_morris (talk) 05:04, January 1, 2011 (UTC)
So what should we do? Start a discussion? Thank you. --Guilherme Guerreiro (talk here) 11:11, January 1, 2011 (UTC)
Sure. --a_morris (talk) 17:37, January 1, 2011 (UTC)
Could you help me? I don't know how to explain this idea. Thank you. --Guilherme Guerreiro (talk here) 17:41, January 1, 2011 (UTC)
Would you mind to give your input at community portal I've started a discussion about this issue. Thank you. --Guilherme Guerreiro (talk here) 18:04, January 1, 2011 (UTC)

There is something messing up with a category, could you please check this problem I've tried to fix it and I've nominated the category for deletion, also respond to my above messages. Thank you. --Guilherme Guerreiro (talk here) 01:06, January 1, 2011 (UTC)

Fixed![edit source]

Hello i have fixed the Licence on some pictures now. Collar 18:57, January 1, 2011 (UTC)

IRC contact[edit source]

There should be a new irc contact because duskey's gone.--Monster2821 talk 22:11, January 2, 2011 (UTC)

Error 404 page[edit source]

The page that comes up when a user enters an incorrect url on the wiki (here's an example) is out-of-date and I want to change it, but I can't find it on the MediaWiki namespace. Do you know where it is? Thanks. -- LostInRiverview talk · blog 02:11, January 3, 2011 (UTC)

There is a sexually inappropriate vandal on this wiki.[edit source]

I'm not just being Mrs. Crumplebottom here.

An unregistered user with the IP (Sorry about the unnecessary line break, my computer just did that for some reason) has been creating sexually explicit pages.
All the admins on other wikis I've been to are quite quick, so the pages may already be deleted.
So far, this user has created "Vagina Discomfort" which just contains a lot of gibberish, and "The Lesbian Family"
Hoping I helped, 16:25, January 3, 2011 (UTC)

P.S. I don't know why the second paragraph is bigger than the first, I think there is a bug somewhere.

Oops.[edit source]

I just realized I wasn't signed in. This post and the one above it were left by Mr_Z

Facebook Contest[edit source]

Hey A morris! I spoke to some users, including LostInRiverview, about an idea I have. Its a Facebook contest! I think it could do well, since our fanpage is becoming so popular. I take an image of a Sim, and make it darker/blur it, and users have to guesse what Sim it is! To do this, I must either send the pictures to you via email, or, if you trust me enough, give me permission to work on the Facebook page. Please consider it. Thanks! BobNewbie talkblog 18:56, January 3, 2011 (UTC)

Sure sounds good. You're now an admin on our facebook page. --a_morris (talk) 19:39, January 3, 2011 (UTC)
Thank you, A morris! I promise to help our facebook page remain great and grow amazingly. Please tell me if you have any problems with what I do on it. Oh, I wanted to inform you, I joined your Heroquest wiki! --BobNewbie talkblog 19:49, January 3, 2011 (UTC)

Templates change, again.[edit source]

I think people agreed with the discussion of new template icons, could you please check community portal to see the entire discussion? Should we implement the new templates' features? Thank you. --Guilherme Guerreiro (talk here) 15:02, January 9, 2011 (UTC)

Block User[edit source]

Hey A morris. As of this time, I'm still unable to block users or delete anything. When you get on next, can you please try to permanently block this user and delete this blog? Hopefully Wikia will have worked out the bugs by then. The user's page already says that they are blocked, but I haven't been able to block yet, so you'll probably have to check the block logs to see whether or not he has an outstanding block. Thank you much - LostInRiverview talk · blog 11:36, January 13, 2011 (UTC)

I've sent in a Contact to Special:Contact; can you do the same? It's been over 12 hours since the wiki has been operating correctly. - LostInRiverview talk · blog 11:40, January 13, 2011 (UTC)

Still locked. It looks like The Sims Wiki has been updated to MediaWiki 1.16. --a_morris (talk) 17:16, January 13, 2011 (UTC)

I've sent a message to Wikia. --a_morris (talk) 17:37, January 13, 2011 (UTC)
You are correct; The Sims Wiki has been upgraded to 1.16, and that's more likely than not the cause of all our problems - LostInRiverview talk · blog 18:47, January 13, 2011 (UTC)

E-mail[edit source]

I've sent you an E-mail regarding a possibly sensitive situation. Please read it at your convenience. -- LostInRiverview talk · blog 06:19, January 14, 2011 (UTC)

Sorry, I didn't receive your email. I haven't been receiving any emails from Wikia lately. I've checked and resaved my preferences if you want to try again. You can also send me a message through Facebook. --a_morris (talk) 20:17, January 18, 2011 (UTC)

"You"[edit source]

I've seen a lot of articles with "you" in them. I know most wikis are against using it in articles, but I was wondering if it was okay on here. I wanted to ask before going through all of the pages and fixing them. Slimey01 18:55, January 21, 2011 (UTC)

Forumheader[edit source]

Hey A morris, do you think you can help with the {{Forumheader}} template? I tried editing it a 2nd forum title, but the categorization isn't working properly. Say, if a Forum thread is in the Questions forum, the Forumheader would be: Forums: Index → Central Park → Questions → (Thread Name). However, due to the categorization error, the thread gets both the Central Park and Questions categories, which screws up the thread list on the Forum pages. Do you know how to fix this? —Random Ranaun (Talk to me!) 23:43, January 25, 2011 (UTC)

Might work now. I changed the template so it only adds to the 1st parameter/category if the 2nd doesn't exist. --a_morris (talk) 00:00, January 26, 2011 (UTC)

Fanon Admins[edit source]

Hi A morris. I created the Fanon Administrators page. I think I got all the main points, but it could use a little work. Do you think you could help? Also, I restarted the Fanon merge discussion. Do you think you could look at it? (Sorry if I'm putting too much on your plate, but it seems like I'm the only one discussing the Fanon wiki merge now.) —Random Ranaun (Talk to me!) 04:13, January 26, 2011 (UTC)

Expanding the Forums[edit source]

Hey A morris, can you take a look at this? Do you think its okay if I add these new Forums? —Random Ranaun (Talk to me!) 01:28, January 28, 2011 (UTC)

Userboxes[edit source]

Hmm... I think we forgot to add to your userpage, the female userbox and I'm suggesting you to add it (if you want, of course). Best wishes. --Guilherme Guerreiro (talk here) 18:28, January 28, 2011 (UTC)

Hmmm... a_morris could you please fix what's happening with Category:Users/Orange, because people who love it don't show up on the category (like me), perhaps this has something to do with the template. Thanks for reading. --Guilherme Guerreiro (talk here) 12:05, January 29, 2011 (UTC)

looks like you fixed it. --a_morris (talk) 19:42, January 29, 2011 (UTC)

Requesting Admin Back[edit source]

Hi! It's me, I've decided to return to this wiki and I know that I've given up my sysop privileges before I left. So now I'm just asking you whether I can get my sysop status back. If denied, then a rollback would be enough for me at this time. Thank you for your attention. Walker guy94 [Talk] 08:17, January 30, 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for giving me back my sysop privileges, and also thank you for the welcome back message. Walker guy94 [Talk] 02:39, February 2, 2011 (UTC)

Bot task[edit source]

Is there a good place to request that a bot perform a task? This one is quite small, but it would be nice to have a bot edit the pages that link to The Sims Wiki:Fanon Administrators since I've moved that page to The Sims Wiki:Fanon administrators. Thanks. -- LostInRiverview talk · blog 01:18, February 1, 2011 (UTC)

Bureaucrats[edit source]

I think 'crat requests should be open now because you and Dharden are the only 'crats active and with the fanon stuff going on we are going to need more 'crats and if there open I won't request.Also I told Dharden and he says that I may have A point.--CookieMonster888 talk 21:46, February 4, 2011 (UTC)

I have waited a while and still no response?--CookieMonster888 talk 22:06, February 6, 2011 (UTC)
