Curtis Paradis Edit

I have told Nikel23 already, I sure the contributor didn't mean to create a page called 'Curtis Paradis'. He must be a fan. Welcome To The World Of The Sims Wiki! (talk) 09:30, October 6, 2012 (UTC)


Dunno how much free time you have or if you'd be interested, but I will soon be leaving SimPrograms (along with Jud) and the new owner needs a few writers. I know you've very active on this wiki and your experince will come in very handy on SP. If interested let me know and I'll let her know. Thanks.The Black Scorpion (talk) 23:55, October 10, 2012 (UTC)

RE: The Sims 1 logosEdit

Thanks! For some reason, I couldn't make the Superstar logo transparent, and I still can't find the logos of Livin' Large and Makin' Magic though. Nikel Talk Vote! 14:58, October 11, 2012 (UTC)

RE: Your User Created Contest Edit

Hey! It's not currently active, it finished a while ago, so I don't think it would be on the page. Thanks anyway! BakeryChaz ~ (let's have a chat!) 05:41, October 14, 2012 (UTC)

A Notice to see Edit

I Don't Get what you mean, Patrick, I will send you a message on your talk page

It could be my computer that i was on, its very slow, because I know that The sims 3 Becomes The Sims 3, I know how to do the basics of a wikian and I can also add italic text, it just comes out as wiki text. (I hate Wikitext.) So If any Problems with what I have consulted to you let me know, Thanks for your time, Honesty and noticability,DevDevDev, Wants company (talk) 09:25, October 14, 2012 (UTC)

RE: Active User Created Contest Edit

Please do, as I still have intention to have that active. I have just noticed that Xxgreenbunnyxx has commented on it, although I might need to clean that up. However, if it does not get active, feel free to remove it.

RE:Captions Page Edit

Thanks for letting me know, LiR. But when I added my name in there were no votes so I don't think I caused any harm. I'm sorry, I didn't know. Thank you! And by the way, the reason I edited the page was because it was still October 18th in New York. I'm really sorry, it won't happen again! PGR7 (habla - escuchar) 11:35, October 19, 2012 (UTC)

RE: Participation in the Photo Caption Contest Edit

Hi Patrick,

Thanks for the box! I'm gonna go put it on my page right now! haha.

And thanks for the awesome contest! I know I only competed once, but it was so cool to see the other users' captions and vote on them.

Thanks again! ~ Waikikamukow [ Talk - Blog ] - 06:03, October 20, 2012 (UTC)

The Dutch Sims Wikia Edit


I don't know if you remember but a few weeks/months ago I asked help for updating the Dutch Sims Wikia. Now I finally became an administrator and already tried to edit a few things concerning the layout. (That was actually what my main question was about back then) I got the bigger parts like background etc. but could you tell me who I have to get in contact with if I want to create a likeness 'graphic wordmark' (preferably the same one as you, but in Dutch) and the 'favicon' (what means it would be the same plumbbob you use I guess?) Also it would be nice if I could check if some things are the same as I put them now. SO, bringing me in contact with someone who knows about all this stuff would be the greatest thing you could do for me! Haha.

We're working hard on getting everything just as updated as here and I hope we can present it soon. Thanks for all your help.

Re: Your Signature Edit

I thought the Gray/Lilac color was best because the Cornsilk is a bit too bright like this one which is the main one: (Deleted) or this one which is the Gray (Deleted.) Devdevdev (talk) 20:39, November 14, 2012 (UTC)

RE:The Dutch Sims Wiki Edit

Thanks for your fast reply,

I actually do have another question. How can we change our header and give it an image as background? And also if you see this page, the template should have round edges (similiar to your Ncd template). Did I mess something up in my Parthenon template, or does it has to do something with the wiki website?

I hope I'm not asking too much, thanks for your help. Tiezel (talk) 21:29, November 15, 2012 (UTC)

Re: ....What you wrote on my Talk Page (sorry I cannot think of a more valid title at the moment)Edit

  • I understand and thank you for explaining to me. I thought what you had written was much more polite and straightforward. I will not need to further discuss this on any forums or have a topic on said "desysop forum" explaining why GEORGIEGIBBONS deserves to be "desysoped", as he is not a bad Administrator even if I disagree with him. But I still have questions and a bit more to discuss and you mentioned that if I had further questions I could contact you once more, and I do not want to keep bothering GEORGIEGIBBONS. I apologize for bothering him far too much and whining about my banning, since you're right, it won't take me anywhere and it's best to wait out my banning. And I will do just that - wait for the block to end unless I do get "unblocked", but I don't think I will at this rate and I'm thankful he didn't ban me from Wikia itself, as I did seem a bit too aggressive, but only because I was highly offended and felt as though I needed to defend myself. Onwards...
  • a) How did you know about this and then contact me about my banning? Did he contact you about this discussion? Did others contact you? Or do Administrators really "see all"?
  • b) I would still like to know what users had agreed with him on banning. The users he talked with. Like I stated to my reply to him, I think I deserve the right to know who is talking about me. Doesn't everybody? I don't like the idea of a discussion about me, with me not knowing, because they could be saying highly offensive stuff about me.
  • c) I don't find my kicking for typing in another language valid at all. According to another user any language is accepted, but English is preferred, hence this being the English Sims Wiki community and if I wanted to talk in said language it would've been better to go to a language version of said Wiki. But it is preferred. Doesn't that mean the first kick was not necessarry? It is preferred and it appears the chat moderator who kicked me did not understand that and also did not understand that no one else minded.
  • d) I really did feel offended by what GEORGIEGIBBONS had told me. I know he had not meant to offend me, he was only doing his job, et cetera, but I felt like he was making me out to be what I'm not. As if he was making me appear evil and completely wrong, while making himself appear correct. No, desysoping is not required and I don't want to do that because I am over it and I'm not going to request him to be desysoped simply because I was overreacting.
  • e) If I remember correctly I had another topic to cover in "e", but I forgot what said topic is so I will leave "e" be unless I remember.

That is all. No, I don't care about the banning anymore. It is only one day. I can survive that. And I shouldn't continue whining endlessly because it won't change and if I do more harm I may have more consqequences. I understand all of that. I had more questions and another statement to make about my banning and that was all. I was simply both curious and wanting to explain. If you don't want to reply, then don't. This is only explaining more about my banning and asking questions. The above A, C, and D, really are not important, so you do not have to reply to those if you don't want to. But I highly want a reply to B and only B matters to me, and I hope you understand this. I also hope you understand that after this I'm done, and if I have more to add if you reply and you reply to that and so on, that's all. I'm not going to complain anymore and I wasn't complaining here. Bye. :)

Edit (added content section)Edit

  • One more thing; I need help with another thing. Can you help me with Userboxes? I read the article, but I still have no idea what to do to create my own. Could you walk me through this or maybe even create me one, or is there someone else who can do that? I really want to start a user page for myself on this Wiki, since all the other Wikis I'm on have a user page for me that I created. If you can help me with this, or get someone else to help me with this, thank you. :)
  • Oh, how dumb of me. XD Never mind, I think I have it figured out, but if I need help I'll contact once more. :)

New Replies.Edit

  • More replies:
  • a) Oh, okay. Explains a lot for many Admins then.
  • b) Oh no, my intent is not to attack any users. I'm just curious about what they said and even if it wasn't anything nice it doe not matter either way. Considering that it's 3:43 AM right now, attacking said users will cause mroe harm, it will only cause more discussion, bannings, etc., hence more harm, and I'm generally not like that.
  • c) Another thing that bugged me is that GG stated an Administrator asked me t oquit several times. It was only twice. I also was not speaking anything foul, but I can't really blame Chat moderators for not knowing what I'm saying and thus kicking me. Even if they don't understand, they could translate to make sure everything checks in, but I wouldn't want them to have to do all of that.
  • d) No, it's all fine. I'm completely over what he said and find that I was reacting negatively to his comments far too much. I'm certainly not going to cause anymore drama by posting a request for his Sysop label to be removed, as I barely know what else he's done, wether good or bad, so there's no need to do that to him. Plus I generally don't care anymore, so now there's absolutely no use. And an apolog is not longer necessarry. It is quite okay for the late reply. I'm replying late now myself, at nearly 4:00 in the morning.

Earl Gomez Edit

Hey, LiR, I just noticed that a Wikia Contributor created an article called Earl Gomez, who is supposedly a burglar. It mentions a Youtuber, Chilled Chaos (?), and this burglar supposedly stole from this Youtuber's character's house. It doesn't have any proof that this Sim is real, but I'm just alerting you.

RE: Blocked an IP UserEdit

Well, I think I was a little bit too blunt... It was that he made the same pattern of this series of vandalism, so I thought blocking the IP address with preventing subsequent addresses would stop him. :/ Nikel Talk Vote! 03:07, December 5, 2012 (UTC)

A Picture Permission Problem Edit

I was going to add a few shots of Frida Goth from The Sims 3 to her page when a box poppped up saying 'permission error'.

From what I could gather, that's sort of because I'm not active anymore and it is required to make an edit three days in a row (or something along those lines *shrugs*) to eliminate the possibilities of spammers, right?

Considering I'm not a spammer, and though I'm not so active anymore but I make sporadic contributions from time to time, is there a way this could be reverted? Thanksie! Bayoubash (talk) 13:54, December 12, 2012 (UTC)

Updates Edit


Im sorry to bother you, but i couldn't find what i needed on the wikia and im kinda hoping you will have an idea whats wrong.

I just downloaded Ambitions today (the only DLC i have for sims 3) and its telling me i need to update the game. I updated it first thing, and even restarted the computer, but when i load in its telling me to update the game or continue playing without logging in.

I feel stupid for asking, but i have know idea what i need to do since i updated the game already.-Cheatcodechamp (talk) 17:29, December 25, 2012 (UTC)

Re:About you and your Brother Edit

So I'll try to make this as clear as possible, My brother sent a message to Dharden From Me, I told him to type that to Dharden as I went out with my friend and I write it on a sticky-note. He then sent the message to Dharden. My brother sent the message because of that reason and my sister does not have an account.

The only reason I told him to send that message was I noticed it but I had to go (Dharden put the template for The Sims 3: Seasons instead of The Store, Okay.

I do also have a concern about why can't other users deliver messages, My brother knew what to type and copied what I exclaimed him to type. I don't usually type long paragraph's like this but this is to get my point across and sort this out even thought it isn't the best time to. --DevlyHallows ~ (Inform Me Here!) 08:36, January 4, 2013 (UTC)

I know it's just my brother is just a little bit concerned about it so I thought I'd make it clear, I get it that someone had to deliver that message to me. -- DevlyHallows ~ (Inform Me Here!) 17:41, January 7, 2013 (UTC)

RE: Blog post comment Edit

I sincerely apologise about the matter. Just got myself to be much serious about these comments.

09:32, January 12, 2013 (UTC)

Sorry about that. I use this account on all the wikias I contribute to, but when I logged in the other day I realized after I've been editing that my username was SpiderRoll and not SpiderRolling. I think I made that accound a longg time ago and just forgot about it and created this one. I won't be logging into SpiderRoll again, just this one.

Ok! That is no problem! I was actually hoping to delete the account so I don't get mixed up again. Do you know if it's possible to do so on this site?


I would like to know how am i not meeting all minimum requirements for being a admin?

Notice about the Warning templateEdit

Hello fellow administrator. I wanted to make you aware of an upcoming changeover regarding the {{Warning}} template. You can see the discussion of this change here.

Starting now, a new warning template will be available for use. This template is currently available at {{NewWarning}}. However, on April 2, the new warning template will be moved to {{Warning}} and the old warning template will be retired. Please use this transition period to test out the new template before the full changeover. In the period leading up to the changeover, please report any bugs or issues, and offer any suggestions, in the new template discussion

The new template does away with the <reason> parameter of the old template. You can now make your warning more specific by filling in the <type> parameter. Type will automatically load in text depending on the type and the level you select. Additionally, certain types have multiple 'levels', ranging from 1 to 3, with 1 being the least severe, and 3 being the most severe phrasing of the warning message itself. The types are:

  • Vandalism (entered as 'vandal#') warns against making non-constructive edits. The 'vandal1' message is the template's default message if no type is entered.
  • Blanking pages or sections (entered as 'blank#') warns against removing content from entire pages or sections of pages.
  • Removing content (entered as 'remove#') warns against removing useful and accurate content from pages.
  • Violating file policy (entered as 'file#') warns users that upload files or images in violation of the Image and File policy.
  • Disruptive behavior (entered as 'disrupt') warns users that attack other users, engage in edit warring, etc.
  • Sockpuppetry (entered as 'sock') warns users that are suspected of having control over multiple unauthorized accounts.
  • Additionally, there is a custom option available if none of the pre-existing types suit your needs. If you choose to use a custom message, the <type> parameter should be set to 'custom' and the optional <custom> parameter will hold your message. If <type> says anything other than 'custom' and the <custom> parameter is filled in, the custom message will not display.

So, to sum it up, the parameters are:

<type>: You should fill this parameter in, unless you're alright with displaying the default, non-specific warning text.
<custom>: Fill this in only if you've filled in 'custom' under the <type> parameter; otherwise, leave this blank.
<sig>: This parameter is mandatory - include your signature here.
<other>: If you want to include additional information to the recipient, you can fill in this parameter. The text you enter will appear below your signature but above the 'boilerplate' message at the bottom of the notification.

One last thing... remember to substitute the template, just as you do when you use {{Warning}}. This is to ensure that any future changes to the template don't alter how it appears on user talk pages.

If you've got any questions about this new warning or its implementations, feel free to drop me a message. -- LostInRiverview talk ~ blog 04:10, March 19, 2013 (UTC)
