Sim related[edit source]

Hey dude. Mind if I move this issue of the Newsletter a little more to the Sims side? Currently, its a bit too much Wiki related. I want to include some stuff about new releases I doubt users have seen. Just asking to be sure I'm allowed to. Thanks! --BobNewbie talkblog 19:24, March 13, 2011 (UTC)

Hi LostInRiverview! I'm JJ.A.G14, a Sims fan and a certified "SIMMER"..

I've just saw the Community Update you published, About Generations, I was really surprised and i really thought that the rumored EP was really confirmed along with Unleashed because of the "COVER ART" and the Trailer.

But it's okay for me even though the page i edited was re-directed or deleted.

I'll give more infos about The Sims 3, but I'll make sure to follow the policies.

BTW, Can i become an admin? THANKS!

Hey dude. Just like to tell you that I'm publishing the Newsletter today. Just have to do some RL stuff first, so please send anything you want to put in it. Thanks! --BobNewbie talkblog 07:53, March 20, 2011 (UTC)

The Administrator Business[edit source]

About that "inactive" Administrator thing, I am sort of going to "retire" from the world of The Sims Wiki since The Sims 3 is all the rage these days and I have no interest in playing it. So, how does this thing work anyway? I haven't been following the recent updates since this Wiki was more than it was when I first joined. This Wiki is not quiet anymore, it's filled with creative contributors editing this and that off the top of the wall. And perhaps, it is my time to retire. I'll still be active in other Wikis, though. However, I shall memorize this Wiki very fondly :) Bayoubash 09:10, March 23, 2011 (UTC)

Retirement[edit source]

Thank you, Patrick. You know, somehow I feel old, even though I'm only 6 years younger than you! Cheers! Bayoubash 15:13, March 24, 2011 (UTC)

Main page[edit source]

According to a_morris due to TSW is spotlighted, the main page should be semi protected instead. I understand it is an extremely important page, but I've read her reasons when putting the main page into semi protected state. So can we re-adjust the options or you have a better reason? --Walker guy94 Talk - Blog 08:02, April 2, 2011 (UTC)

Glitches[edit source]

HI! I just have a question...

Well, I think you're playing The Sims 3, and I would like to buy it (and expansion packs), but I saw on some videos that there are so many glitches. I'm not quite sure are they "serious" glitches or just something that happens rarely. So my question is ...can you tell me are there so many glitches?

Thanks in advance! TheSims23 16:13, April 3, 2011 (UTC)

Thank you for answering my question and thanks for helping me!

Offensive[edit source]

Hey dude. Don't see this as "admin delete waring", but I really think it's better to delete the picture about what CookieMonster did. For now, it's just lying around here, and is visible for all users to see. I would have left it to stay if someone decided to do something about the incident and maybe other things, like reporting it to a bureaucrat, but nobody has. Again, this makes it more offensive the productive.

Feel free to restore it if you disagree, but I think we should leave it till later if/when a discussion arouses. Cool? Thanks! --Zombie talkblog 16:17, April 5, 2011 (UTC)

Apparently, and I think you may know, there are more then enough users who would like to start a discussion about these matters concerning CM888 to reach a fair solution. I don't see any immediate action needed really, accept for the lie made to Sarah Manley, though I think this may happen sooner or later. Any takes on the matter? Thank you. --Zombie talkblog 17:08, April 5, 2011 (UTC)

Fanon Sysop Class[edit source]

Hi LiR, how are you? I don't know if you have noticed, but I have placed a request to be a fanon sysop. I was just wondering if the merge between the sysops happens, if my nomination will still be needed, and if I would still have a chance if the merge goes forward. If not, I will pull my nomination.

Re: Les Sims Wiki[edit source]


Thank you for these compliments :) The design was done mainly by Julien2660 (administrator on Les Sims Wiki) and he also created the Simbio templates. There is no problem, you can "borrow" our Simbio :D, some users have already started to work on it (here or here).

New Guy here with a question regarding Fanon[edit source]

Dear Mr.Bureaucrat,

I am very new to the Sims Wiki and had read the Fanon policy. However, the question I had was not answered in the Fanon policy page: Is it acceptable for me to write a Fanon in the user page (as it will involve plenty of CAS and content) then move it to the Fanon namespace?

With all regards,

Please Disregard the message: I have resolved my question with another Admin..

Spotlight Request[edit source]

Hi. Right now spotlights are being approved and appearing within about 4-6 weeks. If I approve the wiki now the spotlight will be well before October. Do you still want me to do that? The wiki has a few uncategorized pages but seems otherwise like it meets the requirements. I would also recommend, although it isn't required, that you may want to go through your Stub category and see if everything still belongs in there... -- Wendy (talk) 23:21, June 15, 2011 (UTC)

The Sims 3 Pets PC VS Console[edit source]

On the 11th of this month I suggested that the Sims 3: Pets page be split into an article for Console and one for PC. This needs to happen as the page will eventually become too cluthered and info about both versions will become mixed together. We did it for The Sims 2: Pets (PC/Console) so it should happen here as well. On the talk page only two others have commented on splitting the article/page and they both support it. i would love to hear your feedback on this. Thanks.The Black Scorpion 17:11, June 23, 2011 (UTC)

Background[edit source]


The Sims Wiki asked the content team for a new background. I like the one you have chosen and I was hoping to use approximately the same background for Les Sims Wiki. Are you okay with this ? I specify that I'm not going to take your image but take up the idea.

Partially transparent page[edit source]

Hi LIR. I saw your latest comments on the background discussion and wanted to provide you with some assistance. To utilize a content area that is "see-through but not completely invisible," refer to my personal css page that I just created. The opacity of the content page background using that css is 50%. (Copy/paste to your personal css to try it out.) If you want to try out other opacity levels, just replace the image URL (everything inside the parenthesis after "url") with those found at my personal test wiki. They're clearly marked at what level of opacity they are. To get the raw URL to be used on the css, just click the link and copy/paste. Hope that helps. JoePlay WikiaStaff.png (talk) 02:19, June 29, 2011 (UTC)

Here's the css you'll need to make those changes:
To remove that thin gray bar...
.WikiHeader .shadow-mask {
   display: none;
To insert the mosaic..
.WikiHeader {
   background: url(;
I just previewed what the mosaic would look like on the header. I'll definitely need to make a couple changes to it so that it works well in that space. What I'm thinking is to (1) "soften" the image so that it isn't so prominent and distracting, probably by adjusting the brightness/contrast, and (2) shrink the mosaic a bit so that more of the faces are seen. Go ahead and try it out yourself, then tell me if you think my suggestion for tweaking the mosaic sounds good. JoePlay WikiaStaff.png (talk) 16:46, June 29, 2011 (UTC)
I made a proper header image. Check it out using this:
.WikiHeader {
   background: url(;
What do you think? Still too "loud" or is that good? JoePlay WikiaStaff.png (talk) 21:23, June 29, 2011 (UTC)
