Contacting VSTF[edit source]

Dharden, I just got back on-wiki and noticed the spam 'attack.' I'm going to wait and see if that user evades their block again... if they do, I'm going to contact VSTF to see if they have any solutions. I'll be opening Wiki Chat if you want to discuss this. -- LiR speak ~ read 02:51, May 25, 2012 (UTC)

The vandalism was extensive enough to contact VSTF, so I've done so. They think that the problem should be fixed, as they've blocked the site linked to in the spam. I'm heading to bed but hopefully one of our other admins (maybe Wogan) will be around before too long to keep an eye on things. - LiR speak ~ read 03:10, May 25, 2012 (UTC)

Related videos module[edit source]

Hi There, I posted this the other day and wanted to make sure you and the other admins saw it. Please let me know if you have any questions! Sarah (help forum | blog) 17:00, May 25, 2012 (UTC)

Problem with adding info with other languages[edit source]

I tried to add a new section to Mitch Wolosenko with his name in different languages, but the Abuse Filter stopped me. I have already added such sections for other Sims. What should I do?
--Geirma 18:14, May 31, 2012 (UTC)

If it was the "Prolific spammer deterrent" filter then yeah that somehow caused problems for everyone. I've disabled it for now whilst I test it, so editing should be back to normal. Geirma, I suggest you try that edit again now and it should be fine. Lost Labyrinth Flag united kingdom england.svg (c)(b) 18:23, May 31, 2012 (UTC)
Thanks! It worked now.

Ghosts interaction in Sims 1[edit source]

Hi, I am posting this on your page regarding your edits here?

In the history page I stated that the reason why I changed it was because, ghosts can wander inside a house without a Sim not even noticing they are right in front of them. Be Spooked is an interaction much like Talk. Ghosts will scare Sims only if they choose to. So even if a Sim 'sees' the ghost Be Spook interaction is not always induced.Blueknightex 00:29, June 2, 2012 (UTC)

Lot Assignment titles[edit source]

Do you think lot assignments should be entitled in all uppercase as shown in this edit or just lowercase them back? IMO, I prefer it in uppercase, but I'm not really sure. Nikel Talk 14:22, June 7, 2012 (UTC)

Hmm, I guess you're right. I'll fix the link then. Nikel Talk 16:06, June 7, 2012 (UTC)

about the page you took away it was a thing for users to tell the bio of there sims.

Ghost colors[edit source]

I found the ghost colors from SimPE, that not all ghosts have unique colors. The coloring consists of RGB and Alpha. What is Alpha? Do you have any idea? Nikel Talk Vote! 12:57, July 3, 2012 (UTC)

Now that makes sense. Does higher value make it more or less transparent? Nikel Talk Vote! 14:06, July 3, 2012 (UTC)
Oh well, thanks! Nikel Talk Vote! 14:10, July 3, 2012 (UTC)

Oh thanks![edit source]

I didn't know I was looking at my history and I found it. Xxgreenbunnyxx (talk) 16:42, July 23, 2012 (UTC)

can you undeleate that if you can so i can copy and paste it as a blog post or under the sims freeplay?

ok thanks

Community input required[edit source]

Hello, there is a fairly important discussion on the Community Portal talk page regarding the seemingly declining activity from users and input/suggestions on how to solve this problem would be greatly appreciated.

Punctuation inside quotes[edit source]

Punctuation goes inside quotation marks:

Good eye, though! (talk) 21:37, August 14, 2012 (UTC)

When dealing with quotes, yes. In that particular case, "Expello Mortis" is not a quote. It's in quotes to set it apart as a name, so that it stands out from the text. The reason for the quotes isn't grammatical, but visual. In that context, having the comma inside the quotes just looks odd. I can't point to any prescriptivist grammar-book reason for it, it just does. Dharden (talk) 22:02, August 14, 2012 (UTC)

RE: Downtown {Hot Date) articles[edit source]

Hm, that's strange. I license my images all the time. Colin the Panda - Meow 09:35, September 2, 2012 (UTC)

Well, when I first reinstalled The Sims 1 I just installed them all without stopping to play it. Then one day I had to reinstall it again but this time I stopped at Hot Date and began to play then resumed installing the other expansions. This time, instead of having multiple pet shops and no items from house party it had, well, House Party items. It depends on what you play first, if you install Hot Date then install Unleashed then it will have the Unleashed "version". I just refered to it as a version because I didn't really know what else to call it. So, I guess what you've said is correct. Colin the Panda - Meow 13:44, September 2, 2012 (UTC)

i need help one of my fanons by the name of "Fanon: Bella And Mortimer" its messed up. It shows like 3 copys of the 7 chapters i made. Can you fix this?


thank you a lot!!

you know more then me. guess it will take me a little time to be an admin. But i'll wait till im ready.


RE: Weather stone[edit source]

It's just not about time to create the page of its own. But the anon is a little persistent. We'd better let him cool down first before we move or do anything else to it. Nikel Talk Vote! 13:34, October 10, 2012 (UTC)

I'll just let it be for now, but maybe we can redirect it a moment later if necessary. Nikel Talk Vote! 13:51, October 10, 2012 (UTC)

SimPrograms[edit source]

Dunno how much free time you have or if you'd be interested, but I will soon be leaving SimPrograms (along with Jud) and the new owner needs a few writers. I know you've very active on this wiki and your experince will come in very handy on SP. If interested let me know and I'll let her know. Thanks.The Black Scorpion (talk) 23:55, October 10, 2012 (UTC)

Re: Plantsim Want Trees[edit source]

I have had that experience with different hoods. People who barely know the ones who turned into plantsims will roll wants to have them cured. For example, I have a megahood with Pleasantview, Riverblossom Hills and Strangetown as the shopping districts, and I had Nervous Subject become a plantsim. A few sims who were acquainted with him started rolling wants for Nervous to be cured, even if their relationships were in the single digits. Basically, any non-knowledge sim that had any kind of contact with Nervous became obsessed with him being cured. (talk) 23:16, November 23, 2012 (UTC)

Objects that appear in all games[edit source]

When seeing Category:Objects that appear in all games, I expect those objects to appear only in base games, or mostly commonly appear in base game. When they are only featured in certain EP (Unleashed, Pets, and Pets), I'm not really certain if it's what the category intended for. This user has categorized many objects, but I don't know if they're supposed to be categorized that way or not. What do you think? Nikel Talk Vote! 14:26, December 18, 2012 (UTC)

Since diving board the only special case, well... I could say it came with Seasons and appears in all games. If an object is EP-exclusive, I wouldn't say it "appears" in all games, although it would contradict with the title meaning (unless we define it the meaning). Store objects imo can be considered base game compatible so they count as "appear" in all games...? Nikel Talk Vote! 16:52, December 18, 2012 (UTC)

templates[edit source]

Hey Dharden, I would like to inform you about the ts3:s template, it is for the sims 3 seasons, and you have accidentally placed it on Bert Alto's page, you aren't the first one to do that - a message left from DevlyHallows and sent by his brother Cheddar0123 (talk) 20:49, January 3, 2013 (UTC)

Re: Usage note[edit source]

I'll remember to capitalize Sim for consistency. How do I quickly respond to talk messages so that they appear on the recipient's page? I've witnessed users communicating like that.

Actually, no I downloaded Him from the web a few years ago. Do you happen to know him? :phear:

-- J7n (talk) 20:02, January 13, 2013 (UTC)

Hey! i just wanted to know if i can get a few tips on how to make a good fan fiction

Happy Simming!


I need to know something how do i take away the photo detail thing when i put in a picture?


Hi...[edit source]

What happened to J7n...? Recently I've been really late with the current activities because I keep checking the past Special:RecentChanges from January 11th, and... gosh, it's already 18th? I must've missed a lot. His messages on his talk page really shocked me; I've just read it. It's too bad because he's a really great researcher imo, and all of a sudden he left. Nikel Talk Vote! 06:38, January 18, 2013 (UTC)

That's too bad because no one in fact blamed him for anything... Nikel Talk Vote! 15:51, January 19, 2013 (UTC)

Apostrophe[edit source]

Hullo. I noticed that you changed the ' to ’ from my edit. What is wrong with using the alternative apostrophe? Is it considered a separate, distinct character in the search engine or something? (talk) 23:40, January 18, 2013 (UTC)

(Replied on User talk:

Hey Dharden. I'm new here, and I was wondering if you could show me how to do one of those square boxes at the start of the page that tells you about it. I have seen fanboys Story of 3 young adults, and he has one to. Thanks Ninja Attack!! 21:47, January 20, 2013 (UTC)

Happy Simming!
