Thanks for the update on the Register page!

I was sort of at a loss there. I'm looking to get TS3 pages up-to-date before Ambitions comes rolling in with a ton more stuff, and I've never played TS1 and barely played TS2, so I had no idea how long registers had actually been about!

Policy in british versus american spelling

Hi there, I have a question. What's this wiki's policy on british versus american spelling? I'm talking about words like armor/armour. Is there a version that you try to use over the other? Duskey 21:29, June 12, 2010 (UTC)

Nevermind, I found The Sims Wiki:Manual of Style. I was only looking under policies. Duskey 22:13, June 12, 2010 (UTC)

Request for adminship

Request granted. Congrats! --a_morris (talk) 19:40, June 14, 2010 (UTC)

RE: Hidden Traits

Actually it's okay to delete 'Hidden Traits' with a big T since I made that only a few days ago and nothing links to it. 'Hidden traits' with a small t is an old redirect and should be kept. Grats on 3k contribs. Duskey(talk)(blog) 19:12, June 15, 2010 (UTC)

Isn't double redirects a no no? Duskey(talk)(blog) 19:58, June 15, 2010 (UTC)
All good then. Duskey(talk)(blog) 20:05, June 15, 2010 (UTC)

I'm sorry

I'm just feeling stupid and upset at myself. I have no idea what that thing is... I think I am the only person who was ever stupid enough to have it move in, because there is no page on it. I thought it was really a cat. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 17:02, June 16, 2010 (UTC) - Please sign your comments with ~~~~


Hi. I left a message on A Morris' talk page about this IP but it seems as if she's offline now, and it seems as if you are online. The IP was vandalizing a few select pages, so I warned them but they didn't stop (at least not right away). The IP, whoever they are, seems to have left; they haven't edited in a few hours, but I wanted you to have a heads-up in case they came back. Thanks LostInRiverview (talk)(blog) 02:01, June 18, 2010 (UTC)

Never mind, an admin named Charitwo already took care of it. LostInRiverview (talk)(blog) 02:25, June 18, 2010 (UTC)


Congrats on your new adminship! [Ѧüя◎ґ]

I forgot that I hadn't created it yet. Good luck with your magical sysop powers! [Ѧüя◎ґ]


Dharden, can you please delete this image? It would stop any confusion over the whole Patrick Jones false image fiasco.

Patrick Jones Jeve 06:27, June 18, 2010 (UTC)

How do you know thats false? Do you have SimPe? [Ѧüя◎ґ]

Yes I have SimPE. I have been playing since 2004, I know what I'm talking about. Jeve 06:29, June 18, 2010 (UTC)

Well, you'll have to take it up with User:Random Ranaun. He's the one that most of the SimPe images and he'll probaly know if it's fake or not. [Ѧüя◎ґ]

Or you could look in SimPE yourself? Jeve 06:31, June 18, 2010 (UTC)

How is this coming along? Jeve 19:21, June 18, 2010 (UTC)

Thank you. Jeve 19:47, June 18, 2010 (UTC)

I found another fake image. File:Power.gif this is for the cut power aspiration {which does not have an image). Jeve 20:00, June 18, 2010 (UTC)

Look closley at the image, and look at the previous versions of it, and you will see it was made by the uploader. Jeve 20:13, June 18, 2010 (UTC)

Thank You

Hey thanks for sorten those pictures out wen the page comes up like that its harder to edit than some of the other pages :):):)Jakeob3000 17:16, June 20, 2010 (UTC)

(Another) Vandal

Hey. If you're online, can you do something about this contributor? They've been making many detrimental edits to the Carl's Sims 3 Guide page, including replacing the whole page with 'KAKA'. Thanks. LostInRiverview (talk)(blog) 21:54, June 20, 2010 (UTC)

Thanks! I had already undone the edits once before, but since I don't have rollback I didn't undo them again, since I believed that they'd probably keep vandalizing the page until they were blocked or an admin warned them. LostInRiverview (talk)(blog) 22:02, June 20, 2010 (UTC)


Thanks to warning the IP who blanked my user page. --Nacho 23:08, June 21, 2010 (UTC)

Image copyright

Hey Dharden, I'm abit confused by the image copyright. I get that as soon as it depicts anything related to EA or The Sims, they have copyright. What about if a user draws an image and uploads it? Would it be appropriate to tag it with no license and ask the uploader to decide copyright? Also, how about screenshots of a webpage? Is that copyright to the webpage? What if the webpage depicts Sims stuff, is it EA then? Duskey(talk)(blog) 00:23, June 22, 2010 (UTC)

Re: Student Union

That's good. When I nominated the page, it was just because I didn't know what to fill it with - I figured it could be edited into something useful, but I didn't really have the ambition to do it. LostInRiverview (talk)(blog) 22:13, June 27, 2010 (UTC)

Sorry for the main page. Something different: The logo of this Wiki isn't transparent. Is that because of the background (can be made more beautiful with the #background_strip at Monaco.css) or haven't you made it transparent (yet)?

If you can't make it transparent and you want a transparent logo, I would like to do that. One problem: I can't upload the logo, because it's protected. I can upload it as File:Wiki-transparent.png, for example.

Thanks for warn me , because I didn´t know how to put an image in a template ! Thank you =) Guilherme Guerreiro 13:41, June 29, 2010 (UTC)


When I removed the template, it fixed the page (for me) because the clr template forces everything below it.

--LostInRiverview (talk)(blog) 20:16, June 29, 2010 (UTC)

I deleted the screenshot from the page. Can you please go and delete the file? - File:Screenshot dueling.png Thanks --LostInRiverview (talk)(blog) 23:29, June 29, 2010 (UTC)

Aspir Family Page Problems

I have some things to contribute to the Aspir family (specifically the name meanings for Jiro, Kimura, and Kumiko) but I can't seem to edit text. All that appears is the picture pixel (the puzzle piece.) Why is this so? --TetoKasane 19:02, July 1, 2010 (UTC)

Re: Could you expand on this, please?

write MV, NB, NP, the correct form is MB, NV, MP.

It´s an spanish rule (i don´t know if it´s the same for other romances languges (french, italian, portuguese, catalan and romanian)) for phonetic topics and better pronunciation for example a person who has two names like Juan Pedro same people says "Juan or Pedro" but other people mix both and says "JuaMPe" naturality change the n for a m, like the case of Sinbad in Spanish change de n for a M If you don´t understand ask me again. --Nacho 02:14, July 5, 2010 (UTC)

Vandalism Monster removed it already, but no action against the user was taken. Duskey(talk)(blog) 11:17, July 5, 2010 (UTC)

Kindly show him the fanon wiki and the player stories sub-pages was the best course of action, whether it belongs on the forum or not. All is taken care of then.
While we're at it though: would it be an idea to create a page where non-admins can report vandalism? Anyone can undo it or remove it, but then we (we non-admins) have to report it on admin talk pages. I'm thinking users report it and admins then strike-out the text explaining the user has been warned/banned etc. It should probably be in The Sims Wiki: prefix namespace. I ran the suggestion by A morris, but I think she missed it. She's got alot on her hands on this wiki. Duskey(talk)(blog) 14:05, July 5, 2010 (UTC)

Resurrecting a sim that has a dead token in their inventory?

Sorry to bother you, but this is exactly about Cordelia Capp. See, I had Tybalt and one of my CAS sims get married and have a baby. They had a baby girl and that looked a lot like Cordelia, and so I named her "Cordelia Jr" in honor. So I decided I'd check to see if there was anything wrong with Cordelia so I could resurrect her or if she was too glitchy via Tombstone of Life and Death. She had no personality points and a glitched fitness level (skinny but it is all the way up, which both is apparently normal for the dead Capp family members). I checked her chemistry, she had no chemistry, and not all the dead Capps are like that. I checked her aspiration rewards and she had 500 and the dead Capp members usually have 1,000. So then I checked her inventory and found a blank item. I clicked it and it said "*Token - I am Dead" and so yeah I automatically figured it was a dead token. (I actually have a screenshot of this, but since I have it on document I can't save it unless I use paint and then it shrinks the image). I saw that you could delete it, but I didn't know if it was safe or not so I just let her go and the kid had memories that Cordelia died. So yeah, Can I get rid of the dead token in her inventory by deletion or is there some other way I can remove it or is it going to ruin my game if I try? And can I still resurrect her? Sorry about that long story... --TetoKasane 23:56, July 6, 2010 (UTC)

I added that she has a dead token to the article, but I still can't figure out how to upload the image that proves she has it. --TetoKasane 00:02, July 7, 2010 (UTC)

Kaylynn vs Kathrine. What is the logical name for Kaylynn Langerak? Is it Kaylynn or Kathrine?

Do you think the logical name for Kaylynn Langerak is Kaylynn. Or do you it is Kathrine? Tamara destiny is cool. 20:20, July 9, 2010 (UTC) Tamara destiny

Re: Warning box on the WooHoo page

Oh, was that you? I agree the color should probably be toned down, I just can seem to find a hex color light enough even with a gigantic image with all kinds of hex colors. I don't agree on the wording though, the page simply describes a feature in a Teen-rated game. I think 'Warning' is abit harsh. We should continue this on the talk page. Duskey(talk)(blog) 03:49, July 10, 2010 (UTC)

I dialled it down abit. From #CCBBFF to #CCCCDD. Check WooHoo now. I'll be sure to go over the other colors aswell. Duskey(talk)(blog) 04:00, July 10, 2010 (UTC)
Okie-Dokie. I appreciate the feedback. Duskey(talk)(blog) 04:08, July 10, 2010 (UTC)

Rollback request

Can you roll back Dreamer family/Player stories? It's all messed up. Duskey(talk)(blog) 09:22, July 10, 2010 (UTC)

Moving files

How do I move a file? I sometimes spot those 'screenshot-2.jpg' files and they cause trouble when someone uploads a new one. I noticed Bleeh has done it a few times, so maybe you need to be an admin to move files, or is there a command to it I'm not seeing. Duskey(talk)(blog) 07:22, July 11, 2010 (UTC)

The problem is I don't see the move button at the top of files, so I'm guessing you need to be some kind of admin to be able to do it. Duskey(talk)(blog) 19:31, July 11, 2010 (UTC)

IP has vandalised more pages. Plumbob Jeve' Talk 18:05, July 11, 2010 (UTC)


As a follow-up to the warning he recieved, we should probably delete the file he contributed which are copyrighted and not covered by 'Fair Use'. These file are:

Do you agree? Duskey(talk)(blog) 22:23, July 11, 2010 (UTC)

No problem. I've been combing the special image pages lately, there should be a bunch of images ready deletion or at least discussion about deletion. Is there any specific reason why deletion of files aren't handled as quickly as articles? Eg. images I've nominated weeks ago haven't been deleted, while my userpages marked for deletion are removed only a day later. I can understand that it's not terribly exciting to go through all the stuff marked for deletion all at once, but it just seems to me that there's some hesitation on files. Duskey(talk)(blog) 22:43, July 11, 2010 (UTC)
I see, but files such as
seem to fly under the radar aswell even though they're
  1. Not in use
  2. Bad quality
  3. Duplicate
with links to a proper similar version of the image in the delete reason.
On a side-note, I set up a discussion for the deletion of File talk:Cute Luv Guy.jpg Duskey(talk)(blog) 23:01, July 11, 2010 (UTC)
I see you deleted those two now. Thank you. Duskey(talk)(blog) 00:08, July 12, 2010 (UTC)

Regarding Tookute4m3's block, I would suggest that the one-week block stay at the same length, but that they receive a warning stating that if they break any more rules, they'll receive a permanent block. I think it's not likely that they'll change, but I'd give them the benefit of the doubt, at least one more time. Granted, this is just my opinion, but if you tell them that this is clearly the last straw, it will give a clear reason to ban them if they decide to continue breaking rules. -- Patrick (LostInRiverview) (talk)(blog) 23:03, July 11, 2010 (UTC)

General Policy #5: Blocks will escalate in severity if multiple offenses are committed. There's no policy on permanent blocking. I say we offer him the benefit of doubt, however unlikely it may be. Perhaps we should discuss a policy regarding continued vandalism immidiately following expiration of a ban. Duskey(talk)(blog) 00:08, July 12, 2010 (UTC)
I don't think the policy needs to explicitly state when and in what circumstances a person may receive a perm ban - that has and should remain the decisions (collectively) of the admins. It should be understood (and if it's not, the policy should state) that the admins reserve the right to ban users who show no concern for following the rules, and no indication that their behavior will change even after multiple warnings or temporary blocks. Of course, this is all a conversation that should occur in a more public space, if there really is anything to debate here. Going back to the matter at hand, I think what the user's received up to this point has been fair, and I would not object to a lifetime ban if they returned to break the rules again. This should all be handled on a case-by-case basis, though. -- Patrick (LostInRiverview) (talk)(blog) 00:43, July 12, 2010 (UTC) vandalism?

Is this considered vandalism? Duskey(talk)(blog) 02:55, July 12, 2010 (UTC)

If it was against any rule by EA I'm sure they're smart enough to not allow people to access their files directly. To me this seems like a deliberate attempt to limit the content on this wiki. Duskey(talk)(blog) 03:42, July 12, 2010 (UTC)
I went ahead and undid it, let's hope there's nothing more to it. Duskey(talk)(blog) 04:56, July 12, 2010 (UTC)

bottom summerdream

How come when Bottom Summerdream becomes a teen she always dies by phone (she picks up the phone and is dead) i think it's the grim reaper but seriously why in every game no matter what I touch cheats or not she ends up dyingggg i guess she had low aspiration but i usually give them what they want unless i dont agree but she was just grow up so i mean i tried but she ends up getting a call from the grim reaper and dies... it really hurts cause i want bottom to grow up to be an adult! —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 22:52, July 12, 2010 (UTC) - Please sign your comments with ~~~~

by the way my recent edits are 100 percent true don't get angry at me for it it is the truth and its not fanon it's called messing up your game and why when I saw my pets relationship with it's master go over 100?????? i have a screenie of this....

also why do all the wiki links i see link to foreign language wikis? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 23:22, July 12, 2010 (UTC) - Please sign your comments with ~~~~


i am trying to add the warning template (Template:Notification) to tim lee demise and mrs crumplebottom but it is there but it doesnt show in the article..

and yeah i wasn't using hacks/mods/cheats this is what happened.

and it's not resurect o nomitron its a regular sim wall/table phone

1. the phone rings.

2. if it's not bottom the grim reaper says is bottom there

3. when bottom answers, you see the grim reapors icon in the action panel, and she dies and it goes to titania

4. the grim reaper comes

5 i had titania plead but it didn't work and yes bottom did have an urn i don't know if she has a ghost or not cause i was po'd and exited out without saving also but i have heard if the resurect o nomitron is used too much by a certain sim they die.

and also you make the foreign wikis seem like nothing. all my links are to foreign, but everyone else says they should be in english.

and also i got this girl and when she pleads with the reaper she always lose and its a 100/100 relationship for both and shes known him like forever but weird not possible interactions always appear (dont. ask. please.) and it's not something i wanted her to do. she just did it and blah blah blah and i couldn't get her to do it even if i wanted too until later on. it just appeared in the action panel and i was like what the friek is up with her and that was totally scarier than the grim reaper could ever be. and yeah they both do it when they see each other and it is great for building friendship but still... it's not what i want them to do and its freaky how they interact with each other and its most likely not what ea intended, so yeah.

Old Vandalism

This has been reverted, but I still think this warrants a warning or a block. Thoughts? Plumbob Jeve' Talk 14:31, July 13, 2010 (UTC)
