Welcome Edit

Hi, welcome to The Sims Wiki! Thanks for your edit to the Comparison between The Sims, The Sims 2 and The Sims 3 page.

Please leave a message on my talk page if I can help with anything! -- A morris (Talk) 18:13, 19 August 2009

RE: Military Edit

Actually, I was bombing the IP who made the previous edits because I know you have a reputation and even if you messed up a page, you would revert it.

Unfortunately, I rollbacked 4 or 5 revisions but nothing changed, we need a coding expert for this. :( - JEA13 [iTalk] 19:21, 22 August 2009 (UTC)

Re: Military page Edit

I tried looking at the code, but it looked like a garbled mess... not that it doesn't always look like a garbled mess, but usually I can figure out what it means. You're probably right about the expert thing.

I tried figuring out what the IP put in, but all I could find were 'mmmmmmm's at the bottom of the page. Vandal? LostInRiverview 19:25, 22 August 2009 (UTC)

Well who knows. However, with 5 revisions rollbacked, the coding mistake must have happened a long time ago. I don't know what to do. Fortunately, that is not a high-traffic page.
Hey, since you started a section on my talk page, why don't you continue there? - JEA13 [iTalk] 19:27, 22 August 2009 (UTC)
Do you have rollback rights? Me, having, used them to quicklu undo yours (had to :D) and the IPs edits and still the page was messed up. So then I rollbacked another 5 older edits, and still the page was messed up. I srsly don't know what to believe. - JEA13 [iTalk] 19:35, 22 August 2009 (UTC)
Rollback is not an ordinary right. You request them from an admin, with some evidence that you are a good editor.
Well, since I rollbacked both IP edits and some previous ones, what is wrong? - JEA13 [iTalk] 19:44, 22 August 2009 (UTC)
Message a morris. She may have a solution. I gotta go now, nice to meet you and good luck! :D - JEA13 [iTalk] 19:58, 22 August 2009 (UTC)
I have fixed the Military page. An anonymous user had removed some of the table code (as well as added 'mmmmmmm's). The easiest way to revert vandalism is to use the undo function on the history page. Using the radio buttons and then compare version you can undo multiple edits. --a_morris (talk) 21:44, 22 August 2009 (UTC)

Politics Edit

I have fixed the Politics page. The end table code |} was missing. Please use the preview and show changes functions before saving. --a_morris (talk) 21:13, January 3, 2010 (UTC)

In that case, you can also check the history and do a comparison between your edits and the user before you. --a_morris (talk) 21:21, January 3, 2010 (UTC)

Hi Edit

Okay, cool. Have you played The Sims 2: Pets (console) by any chance? It seems no one has...or at least I'm getting that impression because it is left out of like every page describing pretty much anything, ahah. The characters from it don't even have their own pages on here... Anyway, the reason I'm asking is because you said you've owned like every expansion so I thought there might be hope. xD I need to find somebody because I think that one of the characters from it named Buck Oakley has some relation with Buck Broke but this apparently has never been considered since no one on here has played the game. xD I think it's a very valid possibility... Must...create...following.. --Shirviu 02:06, January 4, 2010 (UTC)

RE: Hello Edit

Bleeh My daddy is the richest man in all of Belladonna Cove!

Hello :D. My name is floating around the wiki? Cool! I never knew names could float *sarcasm*. I have seen your name also! When I saw the thing that said I have new messages I instantly was scraed SCARED for some reason thinking that I must have messed up some article and got a warning. LOL. Anyways, I shall rant since I have no idea what to say. Sarcasm is spelt so weird!I thought it would've been spelt sarcasim but then Google Chrome underlined it so I figured it was spelt wrong and looked it up on Google, haha. Google Chrome is underlining SPELT. I don't believe I spelt spelt wrong, I guess I have to go back to school from winter break. Oh well, I shall be returning to school tomorrow so then I guess my name won't be floating around this wiki as much, considering I usually spend most of my day on the computer (usually on either Sims 2, updating my Sims 3 story, or on this wiki) with my mom saying "Let's go for a walk!" and me saying "NO!". Hahaa. :D

Bleeh My daddy is the richest man in all of Belladonna Cove!

Just realized I spelt scared wrong, yet Google Chrome didn't underline it, oh well. Maybe it actually did, but I didn't see it. Anyways, this is something that happened to me, once Yvette Grisby (a Riverview Sim)'s page was up for deletion, and I wasn't sure what to do so I removed the request for deletion and cleaned it up. Nobody has noticed hahaa.

Chrome is actually my favourite browser because I like the tab thing, LOL. I have Firefox on my dumb computer that doesn't work with my new router that I have to have for my laptop. I'm not sure why it doesn't work, because it works fine with my laptop. It doesn't work with my iPod Touch or Wii either though. I'm a little scared to add Firefox to my laptop, because even though it's brand new I'm using a lot of it's memory. I have The Sims 3, The Sims 3 World Adventures, mountain- loads of custom content, etc. on my laptop. I hope it can handle it , it should be happy I didn't put my Sims 2 games on it! :D. I'm going to be on this wiki a lot, I would probably be able to find time for the internet even if I was disabled haha :D. You're winter break is super long! Our winter break started the Monday before Christmas. It's 2 weeks long. Do you go to university/ college or something? My mom is got a month off of school and she's going to the University Of Manitoba. Not sure if you know where that is but Manitoba is a provence in Canada :D. I go to elementry school (at least for Canada, I'm in grade 6) except everybody thinks I'm 20 years old because of my height (5'5) and my personality (I act like I'm a mature 30 year old for some reason...). :D Happy after New Years! :D

Bleeh My daddy is the richest man in all of Belladonna Cove!

Sounds great to me! Haha :D. I'm sort of in between a social butterfly and a loner, because I prefer to be by myself, but I don't mind interacting with those strange things that are called "Humans". It's good you know where Manitoba is! I've gone to USA twice, and out of 20 of the people I spoke with 14 never heard of Manitoba. I will not be editing as much, because my school's science fair is coming up, and my partner and I still need to make our speech. The reason why it's difficult is that everything must be in French, considering we go to an all- French school. :D

The Sims Project Edit

Hi. Since you've already filled in descriptions for some of the TS1 career tables, I wonder if you'd be interested in checking out Project The Sims . I've made a list of the tables that still need descriptions for the TS1 jobs. Thanks. Dharden 04:35, January 4, 2010 (UTC)

Thanks. As far as I know, you wouldn't need to sign up, though there is a Project Members page you could put your name on if you wanted to. Dharden 05:00, January 4, 2010 (UTC)

Separate articles for all Cars Edit

I agree. Each type of car does not need a separate article. The information should be merged with Car and maybe the family articles mentioned and the stubs should redirect to Car. A list of car owners could be created to list which families own which car(s) as well. --a_morris (talk) 20:16, January 4, 2010 (UTC)

RE: Hello! Edit

ArchieAndrewfan3001 - I'm too cool for Lilith!
TALK - I'm too cool for you!
Thanks i've been on the wiki since November 2009. I'm still learning about the wiki interface and all.

User Page Edit

Bleeh My daddy is the richest man in all of Belladonna Cove!

Do you want me to help you with your user page? I would enjoy that LOL :D.

Bleeh My daddy is the richest man in all of Belladonna Cove!

I can help you make one! All I need to know is who you want your picture to be of, and the colour you want your box to be. Here is the page with the drawn images. If one of them is taken I will let you know. You can also just use regular pictures, if you want. :D I'm going to work on your userbox, if that's ok. I just want to make it a bit smaller, and if you don't like it I will change it back. :D

Bleeh My daddy is the richest man in all of Belladonna Cove!

Nevermind, I ended up ruining it. Luckily I didn't save it though. I have an idea... you should a different colour for your back ground! I'm not sure which colour, maybe orange or something :D.

Bleeh My daddy is the richest man in all of Belladonna Cove!

I don't know, seems original :D.

Bleeh My daddy is the richest man in all of Belladonna Cove!

Oh wow, I didn't mean on your talk page LOL. It does look nice, besides the talkbox pictures though. :D

Bleeh My daddy is the richest man in all of Belladonna Cove!

You have to get rid of your background colour, when I tried to post before it messed up the background.

Hi! Edit

ArchieAndrewfan3001 - I'm too cool for Lilith!
TALK - I'm too cool for you!
Hi L.I.R thanks for welcoming me again. I was wondering how do you revert vandalism?

ArchieAndrewfan3001 - I'm too cool for Lilith!
TALK - I'm too cool for you!
thanks for clearing that up for me!

Background Colour Thing Is Glitchy Edit

Bleeh My daddy is the richest man in all of Belladonna Cove!

Well, when I tried to post the orange background became haft green and haft orange. Then on the green side was my comment, except you couldn't see my talkbox... :D. Do you still want me to help you make a talkbox?

That's odd... it looks fine to me. Nothing on my screen looks glitchy. LostInRiverview 02:38, January 10, 2010 (UTC)

Bleeh My daddy is the richest man in all of Belladonna Cove!

It isn't anymore, it was when I posted awhile ago though. I'm going to start your talkbox tomorrow, what colours and who do you want?

Bleeh My daddy is the richest man in all of Belladonna Cove!

Well it's actually pretty difficult if you've never made one. It took me awhile to make user:ArchieAndrewfan3001's. I wouldn't mind making you one, so since you didn't tell me who you'd like as a picture I'll just choose one myself :D.

Bleeh My daddy is the richest man in all of Belladonna Cove!

Ok I made {{LostInRiverview}} for you. Here is the code:


|time = ~~~~~
|text = {{text}}

Thanks again! Edit

ArchieAndrewfan3001 - I'm too cool for Lilith!
TALK - I'm too cool for you!
Thanks for clearing up the undoing pages thing and for supporting me in deleting lopezkid33's page, but now since an arch is a item think it should be given a cleanup since it is an item in the sims 2. BTW nice Gunther Goth sketch!

Miaka (or however I spelt it) Island Edit

Bleeh My daddy is the richest man in all of Belladonna Cove!


Bleeh My daddy is the richest man in all of Belladonna Cove!

Haha. It's actually not of Gunther Goth, it's of Jon Smith Tricou who comes with Nightlife. And I did use Create A World. It actually was pretty hard but I eventually got the hang of it. Though, you usually see cars bumping into houses in my world hahaa :D.

Bleeh My daddy is the richest man in all of Belladonna Cove!

I actually have thought of uploading my world, but I don't want others to say that they made it, so I will probably eventually upload it to the exchange. It's true, a lot of the neighborhoods on the exchange are garbage! That's why EA shouldn't have made the tool so hard to use. You actually have to go in the game to add buildings and such which is a huge inconvience. Though, I have actually gotten the hang of the tool! I actually like the EA neighborhoods more because then (unless my town is small like Mikia Island) it's difficult to make all the houses. That's why I like getting houses from Mod The Sims :D.

Bleeh My daddy is the richest man in all of Belladonna Cove!

Make it like what? When you save it it's saved sort of like Sunset Valley, only in your game. Then you can upload it to the exchange. Sorry I didn't get back to you very soon, I went to see Avatar, and God it was long! I almost fell asleep, that's how boring and long it was! Haha :D.

Bleeh My daddy is the richest man in all of Belladonna Cove!

Yes, but they can edit the houses and such in Edit Town and claim they made they made the town. You actually can edit Sunset Valley and Riverview in CAW, but even when you save they will be the same as before. :D

Bleeh My daddy is the richest man in all of Belladonna Cove!


HAHA! Edit

ArchieAndrewfan3001 - I'm too cool for Lilith!
TALK - I'm too cool for you!
You continue to humor me very much but I do like your talkbox. John Smith Tricou is my favourite goth sim. But my talkbox is better (kidding)!

RE:How Are You? Edit

Bleeh My daddy is the richest man in all of Belladonna Cove!

Well, I actually haven't been very busy with them because of you and ArchieAndrewfan3001's talkboxes I have learned to make them quickly. I can imagine that! If I wasn't on the wiki for a couple of days I would imagine myself forgetting how to use talkboxes. And to answer your question, everything is going great for me! Besides the fact WiFi isn't working on my iPod Touch or that I accidently deleted all my music... :D

Bleeh My daddy is the richest man in all of Belladonna Cove!

Actually you can go to "Community", "Talkboxes", then scroll down where it will have some of the images and a link to all of them. That's where they are. :D

I actually deleted my music on my iPod, luckily not my computer. I had my iPod synced with my old computer and it asked me if I wanted to erase the songs on there and sync or cancel. I chose the first one and it managed to erase all my songs but said it didn't have enough room for the ones I was trying to sync. So I reset my iPod and it eventually worked :D. iPod's are really expensive! I got my iPod for my birthday but my mom made me pay for haft of it :

Just for the record... Edit

I've never so much as asked to become an admin, and have no intention of doing so. Dharden 14:07, January 16, 2010 (UTC)

Hey! Edit

Bleeh My daddy is the richest man in all of Belladonna Cove!

Hey there! Remember meeee? Of course, I'm just that amazing. Just kidding. What's new? We haven't spoken in awhile so I just felt like making sure you aren't dead of anything. That'd be a shame. Haha :D.

Bleeh My daddy is the richest man in all of Belladonna Cove!

Oh thank goodness. I wasn't looking forward to having to throw an online funeral, haha. That must be really stressful! 2 years ago I took basketball, hip-hop dancing, and swimming, which may not seem like a lot but it was pretty hard (swimming on Tuesdays, basketball practice right after swimming, dancing on Saturdays, basketball game on Saturdays, usually right before/after dancing). Thanks! I'm sure I'll accidentally delete every article on this wiki somehow! Haha, just kidding, I'm not that foolish. I just hope that never happens, haha. Doesn't aloha mean hello in Hawaiian? In that case I'll say goodbye in French since that's my second language.

Au revoir!

Bleeh My daddy is the richest man in all of Belladonna Cove!

Luckily, or I'd be in big trouble, haha. I hate homework D:, it's so annoying. Having to go to school for a day then having to do homework when school is finally over. I'm sure you'll catch up. I was sick this past week also, and I missed the information thing on the middle school I'm planning on going to, which isn't a big deal, but the school gave my class cupcakes when they came!!! Grr!! Haha.


Bleeh My daddy is the richest man in all of Belladonna Cove!

You mean the one that is called User talk:Bleeh/Archive 1? If it's that one, that's good. For me, it always goes to the original, which is a pain, but it's fine. So if it goes to the original I already know that :). Haha.

The Sims 3 Edit

Hey! I know you're busy with school and stuff, but if you ever have a free moment could you participate in DavidMC123 and I's user-created contest? It's a ugly Sim contest, where you make a really ugly Sim in The Sims 3 and enter them. The information is on the page. Thanks! Bleeh [iTalk] 23:30, February 16, 2010 (UTC)

That sucks D:!!!! Oh well, The Sims 3 is pretty boring anyways (my opinion). Bleeh Lions make you brave, giants give you faith...♥ 23:37, February 25, 2010 (UTC)

Random Riddle Edit

What is: The beginning of eternity The end of time and space The beginning of every end And the end of every place?

Sneaky - it's the letter "e". Dharden 14:03, June 7, 2010 (UTC)

So much fanon Edit

Jeve - Better than any bot!
You should make that message you left for Simgirlsmile into a template :D

Your idea Edit

Hi! I've just read your idea of making "Editor of the month" and I will support your idea. We need something new to make this wiki more attractive as we have just reached 4000 articles around ago. The featured users page should be expanded to the main page as well, so everybody can see it directly in the main page. --Walker guy94 [MyTalk|MyBlog] 09:30, June 14, 2010 (UTC)

I just read it aswell and posted a comment directly on the blog. Duskey(talk)(blog) 15:32, June 17, 2010 (UTC)

Siggy Testing Edit

Can't seem to work my signature out. (Userpage)(talk) 23:49, June 16, 2010 (UTC)

Let's try this... ([[User:LostInRiverview|Userpage]])([[user talk:LostInRiverview|talk page]]) 23:51, June 16, 2010 (UTC)

Vandal Edit

Sorry to but in, but someone already seems to have blocked the vandal. Check the block log. Jeve 02:14, June 18, 2010 (UTC)

Hmm... never heard of that admin before, must be a Wikia staffperson, not a local admin. Thanks for the heads-up though. LostInRiverview (talk)(blog) 02:22, June 18, 2010 (UTC)

Trait templates Edit

Hey there. If you're doing traits, be sure to include the templates at the bottom. There's a specific template for each type of trait eg. {{Lifestyle (traits)}}. Just trying to help you save some trouble :) Duskey(talk)(blog) 04:12, June 19, 2010 (UTC)

I assume you're adding a direct link to Category:Absent-Minded Sims aswell and adding the type of the trait to the first line. I think those are the three things needed on almost all trait pages. We should probably add that somewhere. Duskey(talk)(blog) 04:36, June 19, 2010 (UTC)
Just don't explode or anything. and thanks for the... rose. We really need some manly awards added. Hmm... Duskey(talk)(blog) 04:41, June 19, 2010 (UTC)
One last thing: You don't seem to use {{clrl}} on the trait pages. I just did it on Adventurous, it stops the line at 'Attributes' to look all funky. The layout should be similar to this:
Image text1 (don't forget the space here)

[[File:Trait adventurous.png|left]] '''Adventurous''' is a lifestyle [[Trait (The Sims 3)]] in ''[[The
Sims 3: World Adventures]]''.
''Adventurous Sims enjoy traveling and exploration more than other Sims, are able to go on 
new trips sooner, and improve their Visa levels more quickly.''

{{clr}} is a wonderful template for making sweet looking articles. Keep up the awesome job!

PS: I added some suggestions for awards now that we talked about it: The Sims Wiki talk:Awards. Duskey(talk)(blog) 05:13, June 19, 2010 (UTC)

I agree, it'll get there in the end. Duskey(talk)(blog) 05:22, June 19, 2010 (UTC)

Tips on templates Edit

When I fiddles with my first template Template:Patch I learned that you should always test it on user pages first and not add categories until the end. I also helps to make the /doc page first in my experience. A quick brainstorm of what information exactly you're gonna put in the template and how you'll structure it before beginning is good advice too. Checking to see if you can make it look like other templates aswell would be sweet. I found Template:Object to be very useful as an example. If you're making info boxes you should probably try and make it look like those. If you have any questions you're welcome to spam my talk page. I'm no veteran or anything, but I might be able to help with basic stuff. Duskey(talk)(blog) 11:21, June 20, 2010 (UTC)

Re: (Another) Vandal Edit

I rolled it back, and warned the user. Thanks for the heads-up! Dharden 22:00, June 20, 2010 (UTC)

Thanks! Edit

¡Thanks for undid the vandal revision!. --Nacho 22:47, June 21, 2010 (UTC)

Re:Resources Edit

User:Duskey/Resources. I think I linked it in the wiki awards talk section. Enjoy. Duskey(talk)(blog) 07:48, June 27, 2010 (UTC)

Student Union Edit

Since you nominated the Student Union page for deletion, I thought you might want to check out what I did with it. Dharden 21:24, June 27, 2010 (UTC)

Re: CLRR Edit

You must have a wider monitor than I do. I couldn't afford a new monitor when I had to replace my computer, so I'm still using a 16:9 CRT. I also run at 800x600 because it's much easier on my no-longer-young eyes. Anyway, it was a stopgap until there was enough content to push the table and header down past the infobox. I dug into my memory and dug up my notes and filled it out. Dharden 20:54, June 29, 2010 (UTC)

Just a thought... do you want me to delete the screenshot you used? Dharden 23:14, June 29, 2010 (UTC)
Done. Dharden 23:33, June 29, 2010 (UTC)

Hello, There Is Only Going To Be 2 Expansion Packs In The Sims 3! On My Email It Said The Sims 3 Ambitions Is The Last Expansion Pack!

Also After The Sims 3 Fast Lane Stuff There Is The Last Stuff Pack Called The Sims 3 Twilight & Midnight Stuff

It Is Not About The Twilight Saga!

Rollback Edit

Could you roll Trait (The Sims 3) back to the June 27 version? There's two edits containing speculative information. Duskey(talk)(blog) 22:39, July 5, 2010 (UTC)

Thanks. Duskey(talk)(blog) 04:41, July 6, 2010 (UTC)

Edits by Monkeysandmyths Edit

I think I spotted the problem, or at least a problem, with the edits Monkeysandmyths has been making to Player Stories pages. The asterisks are being moved away from the left-hand margins, so they're being read as asterisks rather than wikicode for bullet points, and that's affecting the formatting. Dharden 00:36, July 6, 2010 (UTC)

Re: Woot! Edit

Thanks! And yes I removed it, but I liked being a bad boy! :p Duskey(talk)(blog) 15:33, July 6, 2010 (UTC)

Re: Table Edit

I dunno. Judging by the history of your edit with it, it looks like either you or the editor puts in extra lineskips and deletes some here and there. Not sure why it'd break like it did though. Duskey(talk)(blog) 18:09, July 8, 2010 (UTC)

It's typical isn't it. Days go by without any news to soothe your soul in the baking sun and then BAM! New patch and rumored next expansion pack spotted at a retailer, all within a few hours. Duskey(talk)(blog) 18:49, July 8, 2010 (UTC)
Yes! MOAR TRAFFIXX! Back to the table: Looking at my preferences I have 'Rich Text Editing' off, whatever that is. Duskey(talk)(blog) 19:01, July 8, 2010 (UTC)

1k edits Edit

Grats! Duskey(talk)(blog) 07:04, July 10, 2010 (UTC)

Wrench icon Edit

I see you added Handiness skill icon. I added Handiness skill icon some time ago myself, we should probably decide on one. Duskey(talk)(blog) 01:29, July 11, 2010 (UTC)

Ah yes, I remember now. I took it from a screenshot, the one you uploaded is from the package of icons. We should use yours, it's more 'clean' and already a transparent png. Duskey(talk)(blog) 06:25, July 11, 2010 (UTC)
I tried making a redirect to your image, but that didn't work although I've seen it used before. Maybe the old image needs to be deleted first. Could I persuage you to delete it and redirect to the new wrench? Duskey(talk)(blog) 23:30, July 11, 2010 (UTC)

Re: Tookute4me Edit

Point taken. I'm still not completely comfortable with such drastic escalation, but they have been rather flagrantly contemptuous of the rules and even the idea that we have rules, so "three strikes" may be appropriate. Dharden 23:58, July 11, 2010 (UTC)

Re: Timer Edit

Yes? In response to what? This message seems abit random. Anyway, it's already on The Sims Wiki:Project Message template standardization pending editing once that project takes more shape. Duskey(talk)(blog) 07:15, July 12, 2010 (UTC)

I also started {{Countdown}}. It's supposed to be a stripped down version so you only get the numbers. This way you can insert it in and where you want. It's still under development as I'm not quite sure about which timezones it accepts. PST (Pacific Standard Time - North Americs) and UTC seems to work. It needs more testing and looking at what class:countdown does would be helpful. Duskey(talk)(blog) 12:31, July 14, 2010 (UTC)

Deletion Edit

Do you see a newly created Werewolfcyous255 page in the activity feed now (05:18, July 14, 2010 (UTC))

Clicking it gives you a page as is it doesn't exist. I think it was created without any text, but still added so it shows up in activity feed. Maybe the solution would be to delete it. Duskey(talk)(blog) 05:18, July 14, 2010 (UTC)

Nope... it's red-linking for me. And the user that created the page hasn't created a new one... in fact, they haven't edited at all since I moved it. I don't know what's going on at your end, though. -- Patrick (LostInRiverview) (talk)(blog) 05:21, July 14, 2010 (UTC)
Oh well, as long as nothing links there, we're good. While I'm here, could you take a look at some candidates for deletion? They're all file redirects which aren't in use or images with duplicates. Also I accidentally uploaded File:Facebook icon.ico but didn't mean to.

File Redirects not in use:


  • File:Fastlanestuff.jpg
  • File:Beautiful Vista.png
  • File:Buckly.jpg
  • File:Dialoglogo128x128.jpg
  • File:Moodlet Winner!.png
  • File:Nectarmachine.jpg
  • File:New sims logo entry.png
  • File:TSD.jpg

  • File:The Sims Unleashed 20.jpg
  • File:The Sims Unleashed 21.jpg
  • File:The Sims Unleashed 22.jpg
  • File:TheSimsDeluxeEdition-1-.jpg

They've been candidates for a long time and looks like no one has bothered to remove them yet even though they technically are candidates for speedy deletion even. Duskey(talk)(blog) 06:05, July 14, 2010 (UTC)

Wow... that's a pretty long list. lol, it looks like I picked a perfect time to go to bed! I'll take a look at them the next chance I have, but I'm really tired and I'm calling it a night. Ciao! -- Patrick (LostInRiverview) (talk)(blog) 06:23, July 14, 2010 (UTC)

Countdown Test Edit

Example date: September 15, 2010, 12:34 pm (UTC)

With the introduction of Daylight Saving time (or 'Summer Time'), matters are complicated as times in participating areas are an hour ahead of 'standard time'. So, where the Eastern time zone is typically 5 hours behind UTC (if it's 5:00 pm at Greenwich, it's only Noon in New York), during Daylight Saving (early March to early November), this is an hour shorter (4 hours behind)

For North American users, I will be testing all 6 United States time zones, as well as the Canadian 'Atlantic Time Zone' during the period of daylight saving time - September 15th. To complicate matters, the state of Hawaii, which is an hour behind Alaska during standard time, is at the same time as Alaska during daylight saving, since Hawaii doesn't follow the practice. Therefore, the zones being tested are:

UTC -3 -- Atlantic Daylight Time (ADT)

UTC -4 -- Eastern Daylight Time (EDT)

UTC -5 -- Central Daylight Time (CDT)

UTC -6 -- Mountain Daylight Time (MDT)

UTC -7 -- Pacific Daylight Time (PDT)

UTC -8 -- Alaska Daylight Time (AKDT)

UTC -9 -- Hawaii Aleutian Standard Time (HAST)

UTC-0 -- Coordinated Universal Time (Greenwich time) (UTC)

UTC+1 -- Central European Time (CET) / UTC+2 -- Central European Summer Time (CEST)


Took the liberty of adding CET, it's my timezone and the only one I know. This should probably be moved, copied or linked to on the template talk page. Duskey(talk)(blog) 17:12, July 14, 2010 (UTC)

Re: Project Edit

Glad to hear it. First priority is basically just to discuss the layout of the base template in manual of style talk. The more feedback and user comments we get, the better, though truth be told, I only see about 5-6 people interested in site maintenance and even we can't be everywhere at once.

Whoops, sorry, I just thought I'd add that since they had vandalized Tycho Curious along with the user page. I won't do that again. --Sparrowsong 17:56, July 14, 2010 (UTC)
