Timeline Edit

I don't know how you would illustrate the timeline, so I took out the {{needs-image}} template. Otherwise, it's much improved. Dharden (talk) 14:49, July 19, 2010 (UTC)

Re:Images Edit

Bayoubash - This town is filled with beatniks and hippies!
TALK - What a frivolous folly!
Oh, of course, thanks for the tip, Duskey. I've been in this Wiki for a long, long time and I guess since a new generation of users has taken over, I guess I got lazy, bahaha. You know, I'm glad you're in this wiki. We need hardworking users like you. Tell me, how long have you been in Wikia?
Ah, brings me back. And that's good, you took a chance at the right time. To be honest I haven't seen much of the things going on behind the screens lately here, since to me, most of the things are done and life's been a little busy too. I guess TSW is now more perfect and in order than it was long ago. Anyways, I'd like to welcome you to this Wiki (a little late but what the heck) So welcome and good luck, Duskey!
Well I'm still in the 9th grade and I'm currently about to face the big test and all that crap, so, I guess I'll only check out TSW from time to time, if I have the chance.
Ahaha, well I'll try my best to regain by regular duties as an admin.

Permission Edit

Hello. May I ask who gave you permission to edit another user's userpage? - JEA13 [iTalk] 11:04, July 20, 2010 (UTC)

Hmm, I didn't see that. I am sure this violates some rule, but I don't know which one >.< yeah... congrats on joining the admin team btw :) - JEA13 [iTalk] 11:12, July 20, 2010 (UTC)
No, since I don't know of any policy regarding this issue either... -JEA13 [iTalk] 11:28, July 20, 2010 (UTC) mistake ! Edit

Yeah, you´re right ! It was my mistake. I am very severe with fanon content, so when I was editing that page I forgot that role. Thanks for warn me ;).Guilherme Guerreiro 14:15, July 20, 2010 (UTC) Yes that sim doesn´t exist thats why I put the delete template, but don´t worry no need to apologize :) I´m fine !

RE: IRC Edit

To be honest, I was not aware I had such an authority. It's not something I requested. I don't even know how to give voice to someone. And since I am not the most common visitor of the IRC, I'm afraid you'll have to solve this with LostInRiverview or this guy (creator of the IRC and a personal friend). - JEA13 [iTalk] 21:52, July 20, 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, I noticed. And yes, I know about the "ping" feature. :P - JEA13 [iTalk] 20:30, July 21, 2010 (UTC)

Placeholder Edit

thats not unofficial, its a screenshot from the trailer. its entirely official Dentface 23:49, July 20, 2010 (UTC)

ok fine, keep it the way it is.... --Dentface

Re: The Sims Wiki IRC Edit

Replied to you on my talk page. Cheers! - Nicmavr (talk)

Re: Is a warning required? Edit

I'd say to leave it at that, unless they do it again. Dharden (talk) 19:14, July 21, 2010 (UTC)

Re:Thanks for your images Edit

Hi Duskey How are? Thanks for recognizing my work thats very kind of you, I have already reached 1005 contributions , Yeay. You´re also making a very good job in this wiki you already reached 3000 or more I think ! I will try not forget about the License of the headshots! ;) Guilherme Guerreiro 12:56, July 22, 2010 (UTC)

This time I add the License to the headshots ;) ! =P Guilherme Guerreiro 19:10, August 5, 2010 (UTC)

Duskey Edit

Hi I noticed u wrote on my page. Thankx 4 telling me im not really good at uploading stuff and you're like the nicest person on this wiki.

4k Edit

4000 edits. Duskey(talk) 09:55, July 25, 2010 (UTC)

recently Edit

I've been apart of this wiki as long as you have been but wow! Congratulations on the adminship! I'm going to request adminship when I get to 2000 edits. Keep up the good work! --Auror. plus the great Andrachome 10:10, July 25, 2010 (UTC)

Player stories as categories Edit

This seems to be a common new-user mistake. The only reason I can think of is that they're unfamiliar enough with the interface that they assume the area for entering categories is for entering a new story. Telling them not to do that would seem to be less than effective if they don't know that it's what they're doing, or what they should be doing. Dharden (talk) 13:53, July 25, 2010 (UTC)

Andromeda Edit

I totally forgot to leave them a message. I usually do, though. I've been an admin for a while, too. I haven't been here much lately, though, because I've been on the Harry Potter Wikia a lot.--Bella Goth 15:53, July 25, 2010 (UTC)Bella Goth (the Andromeda user) Edit

I ran your message to that user through Google Translate and posted the output underneath it - on the off chance that that user a) might see it, and b) cannot read English. Dharden (talk) 16:47, July 25, 2010 (UTC)

Colors in templates Edit

I've found that not all browsers can parse colors given as three hex digits. Firefox does, but Opera (at least as of 10.54, does not. I haven't upgraded to the latest version yet, but don't expect that to change. Anyway, I adjusted the new adminnav template so the colors should display properly in all browsers, even if only Firefox shows the rounded corners.Dharden (talk) 04:00, July 26, 2010 (UTC)

Thanks. It might be worth making a note of that in the Manual of Style for the message template standardization project. Dharden (talk) 16:03, July 26, 2010 (UTC)


I discovered the logo here: French Forum about The Sims 3: Late Night. Actually, I search the original source. But, the logo is similared to other logos, look this :

Bye ! Julien2660 11:57, July 26, 2010 (UTC)

I am searching exactly ! But I haven't yet found :(. Julien2660 12:20, July 26, 2010 (UTC)

Yes, I am Administrator of The Sims Wiki French with Aster09 (Founder and Administrator). I help too The Sims Wiki Spanish and sometimes The Sims Wiki but there are already lots of contributors here :). And for The Sims Wiki French, lots of thing must still be done !!! Julien2660 12:40, July 26, 2010 (UTC)

Language userboxes Edit

Interesting idea, but I'm not sure how you'd define EN-1 through EN-4, though I'm supposing that EN-4 would be almost native-level fluency. Also, "English" should be capitalized. Dharden (talk) 23:20, July 26, 2010 (UTC)

Message from Polish The Sims Wiki Edit

Yes! We are introduced to the main page (where the left) have links to The Sims Wiki - in other languages (not all). This link was no longer so. If you want us to put the guns to other languages or 'Affiliates Page' on our website, it is probably not (now) because I think that is the case with us at least unnecessary. Sorry for my English. "Simspedia" PL, Ciastkoo 11:00, July 27, 2010 (UTC)

I mean what exactly are you sorry? What kinds of action on my part? Ciastkoo, 17:40, July 27, 2010 (UTC)

Logo The Sims 3: Late Night Edit


The logo is a fake, look it : The Fake ... :( . But the german name is well Die Sims 3: Late Night, look this : Die Sims 3: Late Night.

I am so sorry, I will be more careful the next time ... Julien2660 09:09, July 27, 2010 (UTC)

Okay, but not this way :( ^^ Julien2660 15:04, July 27, 2010 (UTC)

No, but I don't understand why you are going to send the mail whereas we had not the source ... I just want you assume your act ...

But the next time, I will not do it. I prefer to wait until the official news come ...

I look the web and I saw that Grant Rodiek will talk about the Sims 3: Fast Lane Stuff and The Sims 3: Late Night : Grant Rodiek Twitter.

The big question we should ask him is: What are families who will be back in the next Ep ? Marsh Family ? Burb Family ? (We know that some known families return in the differents EPs ... )

Why Marsh and Burb ? Because in The Sims, Burb family arrive from the town. The Marsh will return because of the rejunevation in the Sims 3 ...

Bye ! Julien2660 21:18, July 27, 2010 (UTC)


u send me a message and i dont understand could u plz explan it to me

YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Edit

--Myuntoldfunstory 17:15, July 28, 2010 (UTC)Do whatever you like to connect the sims 2 pets wikia to the sims wiki

Re: Main page blog listing Edit

It looks great. If I look at Uberfuzzy's version in the history, I can see what you're saying about the "rating hearts", but I really have to strain to read the blue-on-blue. Thanks for fixing it. Dharden (talk) 21:13, July 28, 2010 (UTC)

Swimming pool Edit

Isn't #File:Ep3 penthouse spa.jpg a picture of a hot tub rather than a pool? Dharden (talk) 02:58, July 31, 2010 (UTC)

Moving Forum posts Edit

I had a rush of brains to the head and figured out how to do this. It's done by editing the Forumheader template at the top of each post. It appears that there's only one forum, but the Forumheader lets it function as several "virtual forums". Anyway, I shifted the Forum:Science lab glitch post to Questions. Dharden (talk) 15:07, July 31, 2010 (UTC)


I'm still active. There has been a lot of stuff going on recently, so I've not been around as much. Also, I have no internet on my machine anymore. TDM : Always here to help but only one thing : Call me Data 15:43, August 1, 2010 (UTC)

Pictures Edit

Duskey, thank you for adding license to my pictures of the Castaway Characters. --Djjackson22 16:07, August 1, 2010 (UTC)

SimCity Edit

Chronologically, SimCity Societies is the newest, but I've also heard really bad things about it; mainly that it ditches the concept of a simulation in exchange for a game that is too easy to play, even for beginners. On the opposite end, SimCity 4 (2003) is the most realistic but also the most complex of the SimCity games. SC3K (1999) is a fun, if not a bit cartoonish, game that steps up the difficulty from SimCity2000 but is not altogether too difficult once you know how.
I've personally played SCs 2K, 3K and 4, and I prefer SC4 to all of them, if only because it's the most realistic. With added buildings, mods, etc. it becomes a lot more varied and I feel it becomes more interesting. Graphically, none of the games are spectacular by today's standards; SC4 even is still in isometic perspective, even though it was released in 2003. The other caveat with SC4 is that building large cities is impossible without a region to support it, meaning that you can't just start up a city and start building skyscrapers; you have to start lots of cities and slowly make connections and build a regional commerce that supports large cities.
SimCity is not the same as The Sims; it's not even in the same area as The Sims despite their related beginnings. But I'm a personal fan of cities, urban design and all that, so I like that SC is it's own unique game. -- Patrick (LostInRiverview) (talk)(blog)(random page) 22:20, August 1, 2010 (UTC)
That saddens me. I like SC4, but I do like playing old games. -- Patrick (LostInRiverview) (talk)(blog)(random page) 17:16, August 5, 2010 (UTC)

5k edits Edit

5,000 edits. Woo! Duskey(talk) 13:55, August 3, 2010 (UTC)

Well done peeps. 5000 articles is amazing!!!!! ANON 17:15, August 10, 2010 (UTC)

Thoughts Edit

Do you think something should be done about this? Btw, congrats on 5k... you now have more edits than this wiki has articles :) -- Patrick (LostInRiverview) (talk)(blog)(random page) 19:32, August 3, 2010 (UTC)

CWAM? Edit

Now I'm confused. Dharden (talk) 05:46, August 4, 2010 (UTC)

Thoughts on edting Edit

I'm beginning to think that one of the problems new or anon. users may have is that the rich-text editor is the default. Enclosing text in double curly-braces is unusual enough that even someone who doesn't know what a template is may realize that it's some sort of code. However, to someone who doesn't know that a green puzzle piece represents a template, it may look out of place. It may look like something that shouldn't be there, rather than like something that should. Dharden (talk) 14:30, August 4, 2010 (UTC)

Vandalism Edit

Just reporting that an anonymous user users vandalized the Fun page. I cleaned it and added LOLSims. Just telling you this so you can take any measure you want against him/her. --- Rodrigo X 17:56, August 4, 2010 (UTC)


LostInRiverview - I have goth kids as grandchildren!
UR A TOTL NOOB!!! rofl!

Hello Duskey Edit

Hey Duskey, I know this is stupid but do you think Mrs. Crumpelbottom will appear in Late Night ? Do You know if there will be returning families ? Thanks =)

Ok Thanks, I only wanted to know if she will be there, and I hope so, she is very funny, I love when she beats sims ! Do you want her in Late Night ? Guilherme Guerreiro 19:59, August 5, 2010 (UTC)

Sims who have twins Edit

In this context, "Sims who have twins" unpacks to "Sims who are one part of a pair of twin siblings". Think of it as a plural version of "A Sim who has a twin". Dharden (talk) 23:48, August 5, 2010 (UTC)

LN Anti-breasts? Edit

Do you think it would be worth it to put a semi-protection on the Late Night page? -- Patrick (LostInRiverview) (talk)(blog)(random page) 05:50, August 6, 2010 (UTC)

Sock Edit


I have seen you around and noticed that you're an admin. I didn't know how to report socks so I thought I'd ask you.

It seems on Pregnancy, User:WhatZitToYa and an IP ( have very similar edits, here and here. As they seem to be referencing the same thing in the same article, I found this suspicious and thought that I should bring this to administrator attention.

Thanks and happy editing! :) Regards, Lost Labyrinth 21:35, August 7, 2010 (UTC)

Re: Separate Articles Edit

They were articles for the carpool drivers. It's been handled by listing them in Carpool. I was thinking that NPCs such as gardeners, firefighters, cops, and delivery drivers could be handled by having a list for each type, but I'm less sure about that now, given that they can be made playable. Dharden (talk) 18:04, August 8, 2010 (UTC)

Patch Edit

Can I ask you something? When I install Nightlife and Open For Business, does Open for business or later EP include Nightlife patch? Does it mean I no longer need to download Nightlife patch if I already install later EP? If so, do I need to install the EP in correct order in order to get my EP stay updated? Nikel23 10:29, August 10, 2010 (UTC)
