Re: Countdown Edit

To remove the 'T minus' stuff you need to edit the common javascript file. It's 2/3's down the page (search for countdown in your browser) It should look like this:

  // determine plus/minus
  if(diff<0) {

    diff = -diff;
    var tpm = 'T plus ';
  } else {
    var tpm = 'T minus ';

I recommend changing 'T plus ' to '+ ' and 'T minus ' to '- ' but that might not make it obvious to the user that it's counting up now since the date has passed.

On a related note; I don't see anything about time zone codes in there, so I guess they're related to the javascript run by Wikia's server program or a java standard in general, this is just speculation though. You can't go wrong with UTC, though some time zones are ok, Sims 3 release in the US for example, that needs to be localized. Duskey(talk)(blog) 04:24, July 17, 2010 (UTC)

Re:Smileys Edit

Thanks, I had those in mind aswell. It lacked an evil smiley and the angry one. It's not a top priorty of mine, but adding smilies and having them in the toolbar when editing would be a nice touch I think. But there's much more pressing matters before I suggest it on the community portal. Like the affiliate program and the DYK and now with the Wikia gallery change. Duskey(talk)(blog) 05:13, July 17, 2010 (UTC)

By the way, in the future, just run stuff you wanna add to my pages by my talk page. It'll be hell if user 162.481.542.667 messed up a table somewhere some day. Duskey(talk)(blog) 06:29, July 17, 2010 (UTC)

Re: Country userboxes Edit

The flags should have a 'Source' section on their file page. They're from Wikimedia Commons, flags are in 99% of the cases 'Public Domain'. Commons is a wonderful place to find free non-sims images. Duskey(talk)(blog) 06:04, July 17, 2010 (UTC)

Re: IRC Edit

Don't be too impressed with the edits. I wouldn't be surprised if most was on my userpages and when I screw something up on the first edit :p I checked out the IRC channel once, saw no one online and figured no one used it. I'll try to be on when I'm at the PC. I think I'm in a different time zone from most admins though (UTC+1... well +2 since it's summer). Duskey(talk) 11:41, July 18, 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, I figured I'd camp out online just in case anyone should ever use it... not likely, but whatever. -- Patrick (LostInRiverview) (talk)(blog)(random page) 14:40, July 18, 2010 (UTC)
Bleeh says you need to come on IRC. Duskey(talk) 23:13, July 18, 2010 (UTC)

Tookute4m3 Edit

When will his block be up ,because it's saying it's up in a week ,and it's already been a week?--Danny(Monster2821) 06:29, July 19, 2010 (UTC)

Floating images Edit

Heads up. When you leave left-aligned floating images on eg. talk pages, remember to end with a {{clrl}} at the end, or the next message might clip into it. Example. Duskey(talk) 14:02, July 20, 2010 (UTC)

Additional: Also, your transclusion on your test page did a number on the Timer discussion on my talk page: User talk:Duskey#Timer. Duskey(talk) 14:37, July 20, 2010 (UTC)

Re: Tookute again Edit

Sounds fair to me. Don't push things with her, but block her if she crosses the line again. Dharden (talk) 00:08, July 21, 2010 (UTC)

Re:patch 14 broke my computer Edit

My computer is a personal computer.--Danny(Monster2821) 23:16, July 22, 2010 (UTC)

So you mean you're the only one that uses it? -- Patrick (LostInRiverview) (talk)(blog)(random page) 23:19, July 22, 2010 (UTC)

yes.if you mean shared like my dad using it.--Danny(Monster2821) 23:30, July 22, 2010 (UTC)

What specifically is the problem? Does the machine get power? Does the computer monitor turn on (I'm assuming you're talking about a desktop computer, right?)? -- Patrick (LostInRiverview) (talk)(blog)(random page) 23:47, July 22, 2010 (UTC)

Whenever it roboots it has error saying hard drive is compressed.--Danny(Monster2821) 00:50, July 23, 2010 (UTC)

Wow... that definitely sounds like a problem. But like I said before, I really don't think a game update had anything to do with that. -- Patrick (LostInRiverview) (talk)(blog)(random page) 00:58, July 23, 2010 (UTC)

Warning Edit

That is an official image! It's the official placeholder that InfiniteSims found on It IS NOT a custom made image. Dentface 19:50, July 23, 2010 (UTC)

here its the same image but a lot smaller. Dentface 19:57, July 23, 2010 (UTC)

here Dentface 20:09, July 23, 2010 (UTC)

Thanks Edit

Hey thanks for helping me. I guess I should've looked over my app.. but it's all good. I got rollback privileges so yeah.. Thank you.

SimCity Edit

If I wanna try out SimCity again, which version should I play? I played the original as we discussed once and I've played SimCity 2000 a lot actually. I saw there's a SimCity 3000 and a SimCity Societies? Which do I play? I wouldn't mind one similar to the 2000 version, that was awesome, maybe added features and better AI or what you'd call it. Duskey(talk) 22:06, August 1, 2010 (UTC)

Tried SimCity 4, might be a bit too old for me. Gonna try out Societies if I can find it in a sales bin next week. Duskey(talk) 17:14, August 5, 2010 (UTC)
Thanks, I'll check out that site. Duskey(talk) 21:51, August 10, 2010 (UTC)

I sent you an email Edit

I didn't know who to send it to, so sorry if it isn't meant for you. I just wanted to say something that I'm too embarrassed to say here.

Thanks, and have a nice day :)

Is the riddle answer... Edit

That the second person was dehydrated and/or starving so he didn't get enough fluids in him, resulting in his death? UBFunkaneer 19:29, August 2, 2010 (UTC)

Re: Thoughts Edit

I don't know, I can't find any guideline for it really. I guess we need to CWAM it. Duskey(talk) 05:39, August 4, 2010 (UTC)

Maybe add it to: A morris#Admin action required. Duskey(talk) 13:02, August 4, 2010 (UTC)

Can i block User:Eduardog3000?--30pxMonster2821 (talk) 22:30, August 5, 2010 (UTC)

Anons removing info from Late Night article Edit

Around the first of this month, another IP from the 71.136.*.* range ( was also removing the information about the breast sliders. I don't know if this is the same person, but it's the same sort of activity. Dharden (talk) 01:23, August 6, 2010 (UTC)

I think I've seen 3 IP's remove that info now. I guess they don't like breasts. Duskey(talk) 05:38, August 6, 2010 (UTC)
Not really, I'm sure we can handle it since it appears to happen once per week :p Duskey(talk) 05:52, August 6, 2010 (UTC)

Patch Edit

Can I ask you something? If I install The Sims 2 Nightlife and Open For Business, will the patch for Nightlife already be with Open For Business or later expansion pack? If so, does it mean I don't need to download Nightlife patch? Also, does it work for all expansion packs? Nikel23 10:13, August 6, 2010 (UTC)

unprotect The Sims 3 article. Edit

I think The Sims 3 article should be unprotected,and i'm asking you because you protected it.-- Danny (Monster2821) (talk)(random page) 04:26, August 7, 2010 (UTC)

Separate (and very short) articles for minor TS2 NPCs Edit

Do you think we really need to have separate articles for all the minor NPCs such as carpool drivers, pizza deliverers, etc.? I don't, and that goes double for drivers. Dharden (talk) 13:40, August 7, 2010 (UTC)

IRC Edit

Wanna jump on IRC now? Duskey(talk) 18:47, August 8, 2010 (UTC)

Oh poo, I just missed you :p Duskey(talk) 19:07, August 8, 2010 (UTC)

Sim->Sim2 templates Edit

Did you figure out if it's just the number needing changing or does it require more tinkering other than content to be a complete 'conversion'? Duskey(talk) 20:54, August 8, 2010 (UTC)

Newsletter Edit

Check out The Sims Wiki:Community Portal#Newsletter. You wrote on the admin positions page that you were interested in it. My vision of it is something similar to the two community updates I've made so far. Duskey(talk) 17:01, August 13, 2010 (UTC)

IRC status Edit

Ah yes, I broke it btw :p better late than never :p Duskey(talk) 20:55, August 18, 2010 (UTC)

RE: New UserboxEdit

I like it, it's sexy. Duskey(talk) 02:22, August 24, 2010 (UTC) "it's sexy",that's funny.-- Danny (Monster2821) (talk)(random page) 19:59, August 26, 2010 (UTC)

I edited the userbox so you can enter a numbered amount as a parameter. You can use it if you'd like :p Duskey(talk) 21:04, August 26, 2010 (UTC)

New license dropdown thing Edit

Now that you've had the chance to use it a bit, how do you like it? Duskey(talk) 19:37, August 26, 2010 (UTC)

The update template you made, isn't it the same as the under dev 2 template? Duskey(talk) 17:17, August 28, 2010 (UTC)

A video about remixes and how Led Zeppelin rips everyone off :D come to IRC to moan about it. --Duskeytalk 22:07, September 15, 2010 (UTC)

I barely know anyone :( Edit

I need to know more people, and the IRC is always dead every time I go there, no one is on when I am on. I need people to talk to, I'm lonely, so I chose you, Duskey and someone else to talk to and leave messages for.

DarthCookie 06:34, September 20, 2010 (UTC)

Thank You Edit

Thank you for the advice on that subject.--DarthCookie 18:59, September 20, 2010 (UTC)
