Fanon Edit

If fanon is going to be granted, then how can we prevent users from creating fanon articles such as "the stripper" or "the bi***", isn't that profanity or vandalism? This issue may generate some ambiguuity, what do you personally think about this? Thanks for reading and understanding my horrible english (if there is any grammar or spell mistake tell me in my talk page) Lost ;). --Guilherme Guerreiro (talk here) 10:08, December 23, 2010 (UTC)

This might be a silly question but do you think I am feminine? Please would you mind to be honest when responding? Thank you. --Guilherme Guerreiro (talk here) 14:47, December 23, 2010 (UTC)

Also how can we found families' photo galleries from Sims 2, for example I haven't found any pictures of Goth family, but there are pictures from Sims 2 featured in the page, how can we access those? Or are the pictures a creation? Thank you. --Guilherme Guerreiro (talk here) 15:26, December 23, 2010 (UTC)

Well, it is true you don't know me well, though my school co-workers say that I'm very feminine and then they are very mean to me, I really like my personality, though my co-workers discriminate me for being like that, I don't really know what to do :(. --Guilherme Guerreiro (talk here) 20:29, December 23, 2010 (UTC)

IRC Edit

Hey LiR, Auror would like you to come to the IRC channel. GG (t)(c)(b) 18:38, December 23, 2010 (UTC)

RE: January Events Edit

Hey LIR! No offence taken! It feels good to know i'm doing my job and making changes to grow the wiki. I'll be more then happy to do that! I'll put some pictures on it and improve the layout a bit. BobNewbie talkblog 08:11, December 28, 2010 (UTC)

Thank-You so much for the help! I still have a lot of plans as community director, and please voice your opinion on what iv'e done so far. I promise to work harder on proof-reading my posts.

I'll take on the position of making a monthly newsletter. I'll try to make it as great as possible!

I hope you have a great new year! BobNewbie talkblog 08:37, December 28, 2010 (UTC)

Newsletter Edit

Hey LIR! Just wanted to say I like how your newsletter is coming along! On the 3rd of January, please give me a link to everything you have done. I'll take those stuff and the stuff I have done and merge the two. It has to be me, because if you make the blog post, I can't help edit it. Since your an admin, you can edit mine. If you have any problems wit h this plan or the date, please contact me! BobNewbie talkblog 08:57, December 29, 2010 (UTC)

Newsletter Edit

Hey LIR! Could you do me a favor and add this to the community corner, so that everyone knows about the newsletter?

The Sims Wiki is planning on re-starting the Newsletter! For more information, read here. If you have a story you want to submit, submit it here.

Thanks! BobNewbie talkblog 11:59, December 29, 2010 (UTC)

Thats the thing LIR, my intent is on leaving the wiki. I just wanted to put it up for now because I actually know many users on the wiki. Anyway, I would like to not talk about it for now, and just enjoy and bring to this wiki what I can. BobNewbie talkblog 17:22, December 30, 2010 (UTC)

Ok, I have an idea. I want to work on TSM wiki till the games release, but then I can take a break from that wiki. The biggest thing that will help is if I get 'crat rights on another wiki, which is quite large and I am the only admin there, For now, i'll leave a message on my userpage pointing out the possibility. Happy New year! BobNewbie talkblog 18:52, December 30, 2010 (UTC)

Sims Team changes Edit

First Rod a few days ago and now word is speading that Grant is also gone[1].Bafendo 19:44, December 30, 2010 (UTC)

Comment On Articles Edit

Hey! I just finished the horoscope for the newsletter, and was wondering, how do you enable comments for an article? I have a error in my browser, which allows me to edit every page (including other peoples blog posts) if I click twice. Don't worry, I have never abused this. I am thinking about telling th Wikia staff about it. Anyway, I used this to go through Duskey's newsletter, and couldn't find any obvious template that allows adding comments to a page. Any help? Thanks! BobNewbie talkblog 10:42, December 31, 2010 (UTC)

I was actually thinking of making it look like a newspaper, but didn't think you would agree with. Well, we can have one big picture at the top, and make a front page news like section, horoscope, in-depth articles, make it look like paper you read in the morning, etc.

Trust me, i'm going to make it big!

I think we could have a page, and people can comment on the newsletter on the talk page.

Anyway, I promise I will work hard on making it as great as it can be! BobNewbie talkblog 11:48, December 31, 2010 (UTC)

Newsletter Edit

Hey LIR! The newsletter is coming along great! Here are some things I plan to feature in it

  • The top section works as a "front page news" feature
  • The Articles
  • The Horoscope, which is 50% true and 50% funny
  • A section where we ask users something, and take 3 users opinions on it.
  • Smaller test which says who wrote what
  • A lot more

It's a work in progress, but I am throwing every good idea I have in to it. I promise it will blow the server off this wiki! Moodlet icon amused fun --BobNewbie talkblog 20:04, December 31, 2010 (UTC)

Update: I also made a userbox to reward users for submitting their ideas. --BobNewbie talkblog 20:31, December 31, 2010 (UTC)
Please give your opinion about it, if you have time! --BobNewbie talkblog 22:58, December 31, 2010 (UTC)

Whoa! What a way to start the new year! Thank-You so much! I can't believe it, this is truly amazing!Moodlet cheered up happy ! (New year smiley day. Had to put one in the message)Moodlet icon amused fun. Anyway, I'm gonna work on the newsletter for most of the day. Happy 2011! --BobNewbie talkblog 08:00, January 1, 2011 (UTC)

Hey! I need to talk to you on the IRC. Please go if you have time. BobNewbie talkblog 18:55, January 1, 2011 (UTC)

Hey! I need to discuss something about the portals with you. Where? The IRC. Moodlet cheered up happy

RE:Error 404 Edit

Ha Ha! Nice job! BobNewbie talkblog 10:18, January 3, 2011 (UTC)

RE: facebook template Edit

Hey LIR! I didn't mean any harm. I was trying to remove the ] at the end of the sentence. When I checked it worked fine. Thanks for fixing it. Is there a way to remove the ] without messing the template up? BobNewbie talkblog 07:30, January 6, 2011 (UTC)

Moodlet icon amused fun. Call me a noob. I forgot that external links only have one bracket. I thought it was a problem with the userbox, because I forgot what one brackets function is, and thought it was a problem. Thanks for the help LIR. Sorry if I caused any problems. --BobNewbie talkblog 07:46, January 6, 2011 (UTC)

Thank you for the warm welcome. I'm about to make a picture of Wulf Goth. Tonight I'll do the picture then Wulf Goth's biography.

He came back to the irc (GEORGIEGIBBONSEdit

Simsgirl2010 19:44, January 10, 2011 (UTC)

Could you please check Alexander Goth's article, its introduction is above of the template and I found it extremely odd I tried to fix the problem but it didn't solve anything. Thank you. --Guilherme Guerreiro (talk here) 18:37, January 12, 2011 (UTC)

Yes I'm sure I see the introduction text above of the simbio start, isn't there any problem?--Guilherme Guerreiro (talk here) 18:46, January 12, 2011 (UTC)

Re: James t oskaleaon again... Edit

Permanent block. Dharden (talk) 23:31, January 12, 2011 (UTC)

You may need to handle it. The wiki is (once again) behaving somewhat strangely in Opera. No idea if it's related to the DB being locked, or if it's because Wikia "fixed" something. Dharden (talk) 23:47, January 12, 2011 (UTC)
(SIGH) We'll just have to wait until they fix whatever the problem is, then. Dharden (talk) 23:55, January 12, 2011 (UTC)
I just noticed something weird about this: Look at User:James t oskaleaon, and it says "Member since January 13, 2011". IOW, it shows the current UTC date, as it would when giving a nonexistent username. However, the account is logged as having been created on January 4, 2011. You think that maybe he got booted? Dharden (talk) 00:46, January 13, 2011 (UTC)
Makes sense to me. Oh, IOW == In Other Words. Dharden (talk) 00:55, January 13, 2011 (UTC)

Layout builder Edit

No, I didn't. I think we should at least comment that neither of us was asked about it. Dharden (talk) 02:01, January 13, 2011 (UTC)

Other weirdnesses Edit

I've noticed that, here, the "Talk page" tab has been renamed "Discuss this page", and has a slightly different style. On other wikis I've checked, it's still "Talk page". Also, here - at least for me - the floating toolbar isn't working properly, while it is on other wikis I've checked. This also seems to extend to other features that use JavaScript, though the main Wikia bar works at times. Are you also noticing this? Dharden (talk) 15:47, January 13, 2011 (UTC)

Yes, it is. I've temporarily switched to Monobook just so I can access history, but being unable to block or delete is a problem. Dharden (talk) 19:32, January 13, 2011 (UTC)
Yep, it's working ... but I'm still having problems with the toolbar and other "mouseover" things. Dharden (talk) 20:10, January 13, 2011 (UTC)

Re: Deletion of disappearance of Bella Goth Edit

Fair enough. Dharden (talk) 20:01, January 13, 2011 (UTC)

BobNewbie leftEdit

BobNewbie has recently left wiki, and his work was left to one of us, we should update contests that he used to, such as Battles contest, this is just to warn you, do you want any help? Thank you. --Guilherme Guerreiro (talk here) 17:24, January 16, 2011 (UTC)

This is really sad I know, the greatest member on here is gone :(. --Guilherme Guerreiro (talk here)

Re: Disorganization (title bar seems to be missing..) Edit

Ignore my rambling I think mainly templates would be good - though you appear to have some good ones, I just couldn't find them xD Something over at Templates (a list organized by type? I know they're in subcategories) might be helpful for us newbies. Edit: I realized about half a second after I posted this you have a fanon namespace. But I'm sure I saw player created articles in mainspace? Hmm. Sorry, ignore me, I haven't spent much time on here. It's not as bad as I first thought. I'm going to shut up and move away slowly again. Also, an attempt to start trying to enforce uniform PNG throughout the site - without going and placing every file in a editing program and change the extension to .png (don't laugh, seen it done). Easiest way to do this would probably be through templates - "This is a JPEG file" "Contains compression artefacts" "Needs transparency" etc. (This would be nice and obvious on the page and would add it to a category - much like your low-quality template I'm pretty sure I saw) Then, if anyone else like me armed with an editing program came through, they can update what they can and if you're playing an older game you can help contribute.(Sorry, that little pseudo-rant there came from my attempt-to-be-artistic trait xD) Wow, that looks long. It was only meant to be a little bit.. anyway... --— Terimaree (talk) 08:48, January 18, 2011 (UTC)

Re: Battles Edit

Of course! However, it is a pretty big feature, and I don't really trust myself being the only one editing it. Do you know if someone else would like to help? Possibly the next Community Director? —Random Ranaun (Talk to me!) 05:51, January 20, 2011 (UTC)

I know that. :p It's just that I may need help with the policies and layout, and I have a lot of work in real life, with school, family, etc., so I might not be able to update the battles in time. I guess I could try it for now, but as soon as there is any trouble, I'll start looking for someone to help. Sound good? —Random Ranaun (Talk to me!) 06:04, January 20, 2011 (UTC)
Hey LiR, I just finished changing the battle. It's a lot of hard work! And the repeated "Sorry!" editing failures surely didn't help. -_-' I glad I'm finally done. Also, I changed the picture of Grim, like you requested, but because of their differing sizes, I had to change Olive's as well. And, messages about the battle should be in the comments section. Do you think you could move your request and change it? —Random Ranaun (Talk to me!) 02:16, January 23, 2011 (UTC)
Nvm, I just looked at your new comment. The new picture is awesome! —Random Ranaun (Talk to me!) 02:17, January 23, 2011 (UTC)

Adopting Simvivor Edit

Hi Lostinriverview, I would like to adopt the contest, Simvivor. [Ѧüя◎ґ]

Re:A hand Edit

I fixed the template and made the borders round. It looks pretty good, except the boxes have links from the DCAU Wiki, lol. Darn! I forgot about that template. I'll try it soon. —Random Ranaun (Talk to me!) 02:35, January 23, 2011 (UTC)

It works! —Random Ranaun (Talk to me!) 04:12, January 23, 2011 (UTC)

As you may have already noticed, I've been less active then what I used to, and I wanted to day that's due to tests, school duties and physicoligal reasons (I was diagnosed with major depression, and I have to take care of myself), sorry for this, I still edit not as much but some day I may start real work again :). Best wishes. --Guilherme Guerreiro (talk here) 11:56, January 23, 2011 (UTC)

IRC Edit

Hey LiR, Bleeh asked if you could come to the IRC channel because "it is boring". Regards, GG (t)(c)(b) 17:19, January 23, 2011 (UTC)

Now she wants to talk to you. GG (t)(c)(b) 23:29, January 24, 2011 (UTC)

Final consensus Edit

The final consensus has been over for a while now. Should we reach a final decision about the Fanon merge? —Random Ranaun (Talk to me!) 19:07, January 24, 2011 (UTC)

Hmm... there's a problem on requests for special positions, the template with check marks is glitchy now and I don't know how to fix it, could you do it, please? Thank you. PS: I nominated you for featured editor :D!--Guilherme Guerreiro (talk here) 20:35, January 24, 2011 (UTC)

hai you Edit

hai you. go on tha irc plz kthxbai! 23:31, January 24, 2011 (UTC)

HURRY UP PLZ KTHX 23:52, January 24, 2011 (UTC)
Do you think I should apply for fanon admin rights :O? --Guilherme Guerreiro (talk here) 22:07, January 26, 2011 (UTC)

Main Page Slider Edit

Hi Lir. I have a question about the Main Page slider. Can you create a amount different one's, or is it limited to one design with one selection of photo's? Thanks. BobNewbie talkblog 16:33, January 27, 2011 (UTC)

Admin. Edit

I don't know, but I don't really like this namespace idea so it may be better to stay in this way, I would like to be a more general admin, but I don't know if my grammar is good enough, perhaps I still need more experience, what do you think? Thank you. --Guilherme Guerreiro (talk here) 17:59, January 27, 2011 (UTC)

Re: Welcome Back Edit

Hey! Thanks for the welcome back message. It's my decision to return to this wiki. I'm just saying that it is great to be back. Walker guy94 [Talk] 07:33, January 30, 2011 (UTC)

Re:Locking your page Edit

Thanks LiR. It means a lot. :)SimAddict 08:27, February 5, 2011 (UTC)

Template:Snob Edit

While the Snob is the only trait that has it's own navigation template, we could create the others. [Ѧüя◎ґ]

Thanks! Edit

Thanks Pat for handling the situation with User:Blutteufel, I was scared to see his/her reaction when he/she ignored and deleted my comments, and said I was a freak, so I probably did not react properly, though I did not over-react :). Thanks Pat. What are we going to do now if he/she tries to attack people like he/she did to me? Thank you!--Guilherme Guerreiro (talk here) 18:48, February 9, 2011 (UTC)

No response? --Guilherme Guerreiro (talk here) 22:17, February 9, 2011 (UTC)

Thank You LiR! Edit

Thank you for supporting me in the fanon request.--♥DarthCookie♥ 05:43, February 10, 2011 (UTC)

RE: Deletion Edit

Thank you for the advice, this is my first time being an admin, I was always promoted straight to Bureaucrat. Besides, for being a admin for a site this large, its an honor :D.--♥DarthCookie♥ 12:04, February 11, 2011 (UTC)

I sent you an E-mail Edit

I sent you an e-mail, This is CrazyFun! 16:05, February 11, 2011 (UTC)

Advertising our Facebook page Edit

Hey LiR! I wanted to ask you something and tell you something.

Tell: Our Facebook page is growing more and more each day. It truly reflects and builds the wiki's popularity.

Ask: Will I be able to put an "advertisement" (I know, thats a bad word) on our main page? Its basically advertising ourselves, but I wanted to be sure I had permission. I have 2 versions; one that looks cool with many Sims on it and one that looks a little bit clearer but more sophisticated. I can upload both if you wish and you can delete the one you don't like.

Tell me what you think! Thanks! --BobNewbie talkblog 16:02, February 12, 2011 (UTC)

You have been nominated... Edit

After some reflection, I've re-opened nominations for bureaucrat. There seems to have been a tacit decision to have three active ones if possible, and since it doesn't look like Duskey is coming back, we're down to two. Anyway, I nominated you. Dharden (talk) 16:26, February 12, 2011 (UTC)

2 things Edit

Hey LiR. Firstly, congratulations in advance on your so-far successful RFB. :D

Secondly, Bleeh has requested that you appear on the IRC channel. Regards, GG (t)(c)(b) 18:07, February 12, 2011 (UTC)

Someone made several changes to The Sims Wiki:Userboxes/babel, I don't know if it's better to revert it, could you please take a look :O? Thank you. --Guilherme Guerreiro (talk here) 19:53, February 12, 2011 (UTC)

Packs in 1 Edit

I have sims 2:double deluxe, and i want to make all expansion and stuff packs all in 1,but make sure that after i done that, all games expect double deluxe are deleted. So how do i do it

Main slider Edit

Should we add a fanon slider to the Main page? —Random Ranaun (Talk to me!) 06:08, February 15, 2011 (UTC)

Fanon logo contest Edit

I started a discussion about a Fanon logo contest here. Can you please read it and tell me what you think? —Random Ranaun (Talk to me!) 21:08, February 15, 2011 (UTC)

RE: Images Edit

Oh! Sorry for the delay of responding to your message, the images I've uploaded were taken from Les Sims Wiki (French Sims Wiki), does that concern you :O? Thank you for reading. --Guilherme Guerreiro (talk here) 09:28, February 20, 2011 (UTC)

Could I offer some help? I've seen you hard workng on Medieval project, and I wanted to know what can I do for you? Are there any needed pages from Medieval Wiki? Thank you for reading. --Guilherme Guerreiro (talk here) 10:02, February 20, 2011 (UTC)

Thank you for informing :), I am improving the pages, and I will get Medieval as soon as possible, so I think I'll be able to help much more when improving the articles :D! Thank you for reading! --Guilherme Guerreiro (talk here) 17:28, February 20, 2011 (UTC)

Could you help me... Edit

Auror requested me to join on IRC, but I think I can't figure out the controls of that :(! --Guilherme Guerreiro (talk here) 21:01, February 20, 2011 (UTC)

PlumbBobs & Prejudice Edit

Hey LiR, just a heads up that I have put you down as the author of Fanon:PlumbBobs & Prejudice (using the {{Fanonheader}} template) so that it can be identified that you wrote the article. Regards, GG (t)(c)(b) 08:25, February 24, 2011 (UTC)

Help with Era and Eraicon Edit

LiR, do you think you could help with the {{Era}} template? I tried to update it two different ways. The first way was the same as the Avatar Wiki's (here). This way was successful, but I'm not sure that we should use it, since some pages would have the entire bar filled with icons, and the icons are too small. So, I tried make the Era template like the Fallout Wiki's (See it in action here). That didn't work out so well, but I like the Fallout Wiki's Era template more. Which one do you think is better? If you choose the Fallout one, could you help me? —Random Ranaun (Talk to me!) 16:14, February 24, 2011 (UTC)


I never had any doubt that there'd be consensus for you to become a bureaucrat. Dharden (talk) 17:22, February 26, 2011 (UTC)

Said it on IRC but I'll say again anyway - congratulations! :D Lost Labyrinth Flag united kingdom england (c)(b) 17:24, February 26, 2011 (UTC)
Congratulations Pat! You deserve it :D! --Guilherme Guerreiro (talk here) 19:43, February 26, 2011 (UTC)

Bad Language/Words Edit

Sorry to bother but the user: Pink-flamingo has some bad language on his user page...Is that allowed on user pages or should he be contacted, warned, etc. Thanks, PlantsvsZombies 02:37, February 28, 2011 (UTC)

IRC contact Edit

Hey LiR, per this, how would you feel if I nominated you to become the new IRC contact? Lost Labyrinth Flag united kingdom england (c)(b) 16:54, March 12, 2011 (UTC)

I was thinking that a bureaucrat should do it but per your message, I may as well try. Lost Labyrinth Flag united kingdom england (c)(b) 18:10, March 12, 2011 (UTC)
