Hello, I'm C.Syde65. I noticed that you recently removed some content without adequately explaining why. In the future, it would be helpful to others if you described your changes to The Sims Wiki with an accurate edit summary. If this was a mistake, don't worry; the removed content has been restored. If you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, please leave me a message on my talk page. Thanks! ― C.Syde (talk | contribs) 11:19, May 11, 2018 (UTC)
Please stop your disruptive editing. If you continue to vandalize pages by deliberately introducing incorrect information, as you did at Law Enforcement, you may be blocked from editing. —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 12:16, May 20, 2018 (UTC)
RE: Reverted vandalismEdit
Alright, you may have added content in subsequent edits that you've made, but your first edit actually removed more than added, as you can see here. ― C.Syde (talk | contribs) 11:41, May 11, 2018 (UTC)
RE: Revised Edit
The DJ in the Sims 3 wasn't added until the SIms 3 Showtime. There was no DJ in Ambitions. You are basically adding false information to the article which is why I reverted it. I understand you may be new but this might not be seen in a good light by certain individuals. So please can you be careful when you add information. Thank you
- On what page? Cheseburgermac (talk) 11:45, May 15, 2018 (UTC)
- On all pages, especially the one you just falsely removed false information on, because from what I know, children COULD fight in The Sims! IsaiahScribblenauts Disscuss - My Fanon 12:53, May 15, 2018 (UTC)
Don't even bother tying to pick a fight with me. I know what I'm doing, and I know there is no category for Sims with a certain aspiration IsaiahScribblenauts Disscuss - My Fanon 12:07, May 18, 2018 (UTC)
RE:Started new sectionEdit
Ok, I would do an icon for you if you provide a clear reference of the Sim you want as your icon. It also has to be a Sim you made yourself IsaiahScribblenauts Disscuss - My Fanon 00:30, May 19, 2018 (UTC) Ok I'll send you a screenshot later as soon as we move our Sims game from our old laptop to our new desktop.

Look, some of your recent edits to the wiki have been questionable, of exceedingly low quality, or are mostly just time-wasting and problematic for other reasons. Edits like this are borderline vandalism (the Grim Reaper does not appear in Bustin' Out, hence adding that icon could be seen as inserting false information and would be considered vandalism). Your edits on the School bus page also seem rather strange. You created a stub, which another editor saw was better suited to be a redirect to the Carpool page; instead of helping to merge the content in there you simply undid their edit. When a second editor came to reimplement the redirect, you simply attempted to tag the page for deletion and left a completely unconvincing rationale for deleting the page. Recently your edit to Vacation Director Kana simply created a grammatical error for a sentence that was fine beforehand. It also seems apparent that you do not seem to understand the purpose of community discussion and, most importantly, providing valid, thought-out reasons as to why you want something done. Things like your absurdly nonsensical and time-wasting message spam over your temporary mute on the Discord server, this discussion thread that simply puts forth an idea without explaining why it should be done or addressing the initial arguments that resulted in the feature being discontinued in the first place, and comments like this that contribute nothing to the discussion. This is just a few examples of low quality edits that are, let's face it, simply wasting other editors' time and patience as people are having to clean up after you. Let us not also forget that I am getting numerous complaints about your behaviour over Discord; a lot of people are finding your behaviour to be bossy and irritable at best. I am going to have to ask you to please do the following things:
- Please do not edit/send a message until you've put some thought into it. For edits to articles, use the preview button and look over your work. Things like this are just completely absurd; someone who knows even the most basic levels of English should know that this is not grammatically acceptable. For messages that you're adding to people's talk pages and forum threads, please remember to sign your posts by adding four tildes (~~~~). Also, please add at least two line breaks between messages; otherwise, they will simply be located on the same line as the previous message, and will look disorganized and confusing, like you did here. You would have caught all of these if you used the preview button and looked over your work carefully. I know you are a new editor here, which is why you really must use the preview button and be careful with your edits, as you are simply creating work for the other editors here.
- If you're going to add to a discussion or create a new discussion thread, please don't just add one-sentence "I like", "I don't like", "I want", "I don't want", or anything of the like, as this doesn't add anything to the discussion. We determine things here by consensus, and consensus is formed by thought-out arguments with reasonings as to why things need to be done; we do not operate based on whether people simply want something or not, nor do we operate by voting. "I do not think this should be done because so-and-so" outweighs a million "I want this" comments, the latter of which is simply disruptive and time-wasting, offering nothing to the discussion. The same goes for your mute appeal on Discord: you weren't giving me any good reasons as to why you should be unmuted, you were just wasting my time asking if you could appeal and then making completely irrelevant comments. I asked you the big question: why?, and you never responded to that. When contributing to a discussion, ask yourself the question WHY?, and if you cannot answer this question, it is probably better if you did not comment.
- Please observe some form of netiquette when communicating with other users. Things like this and this are just examples of bad etiquette over the Internet; you sounded very bossy as if other editors and administrators were your servants and you were giving orders for us to obey. This wiki is run entirely by volunteers who aren't obliged to listen to you, and if being bossy, demanding, or otherwise lacking basic manners is what defines you, people are not going to want to respect you back. Same goes for your behaviour on Discord, where you're not observing basic netiquette rules for a public chat room. If you do not know what netiquette is, perhaps you should read up on and start practicing it. Netiquette is very important everywhere on the Internet, and most editors and users of The Sims Wiki expect at least a basic form of it when communicating.
I'm bringing this to your attention because I'm getting the feeling that some people are starting to become frustrated with you. I can't change their opinions but I do want you to read carefully what I'm bringing up to you and for you to see where you can improve. —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 14:33, May 19, 2018 (UTC)
RE: Law enforcementEdit
With regards to the services page why did you add a link to animal control on the services page that links the services page to the services page? I am curious as to how that is helpful.
Seperating comments Edit
I have seen some of your comments on discussions and talk pages and I must ask you why are you not seperating your comments from other users comments? Seperating your comments using either : or placing them underneath another persons comment is done as it is professional and not confusing. Adding your comment directly after a another users comment like in here http://sims.wikia.com/wiki/Category_talk:Candidates_for_deletion?diff=814512&oldid=814476 just makes the comment look untidy and is difficult for people to read. So please can you seperate your comments when discussion, it's not only irritating for people to seperate your comments manually, it also gives you a bad image as it makes people think you are uncaring or are not professional with regards to discussions.
RE: Deletion of asleepEdit
FYI you can still recreate pages that have been deleted, if they have not been protected from creation (Asleep is not protected from creation so you can create it again if you want). Looking at the deleted revisions, it appears that the author who created the page made a stub but later tagged it for deletion, so it was deleted with the "Author request" rationale. —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 17:02, May 27, 2018 (UTC)
When warning users, you should keep in mind that the tone, choice of words, and the length of your messages determines how users will feel about the messages they receive. Messages like this are likely not very appropriate, given that the user only made two inappropriate edits and did not continue, yet the warning you gave them made it seem like they had been repeatedly vandalizing and were intentionally ignoring previous warnings.
You should consider reading The Sims Wiki:Warning to see why we issue warnings, and you may wish to consider using some of our prewritten warning templates that simplify the process of warning users using carefully written warning messages. If you choose to continue warning users manually, you may also want to read some of the prewritten warning templates and seeing how they're written; specifically, when issuing a "Level One" warning, it is important that the message does not accuse the user of bad conduct, but instead attempts to explain the issue in an informative tone. In general, start off with an informative, civil, and friendly tone that does not accuse the user of vandalism nor does it threaten them with administrative action, and only begin to escalate the tone of your warnings if they continue after being warned (you should check the timestamps of their edits and the timestamps of the warnings they received).
