Welcome to my talk page!

Please use the Leave Message button to write a message on my page. Please be sure to sign your message (by typing out ~~~~) so I know who contacted me. I may also be online on the IRC Channel if you need an immediate response. If you need a quick response and I am not online, please contact an available administrator or bureaucrat for assistance.

Read me!

Please do not leave me messages asking if you are allowed to do something or have my permission. You do not need an administrator's permission to do things on the wiki. Let me repeat that - you DO NOT NEED PERMISSION. If, on the other hand, you'd like me to perform an action that only an administrator is able to perform, like deleting a page or blocking a user, feel free to leave a message requesting that. Thanks!

User page edit

I have acknowledged your revert of my edit. I thought it was in good faith because I thought those templates are not allowed on user pages. But is that considered as bad faith? Sims Plumbob Player (talk) (mistakes) 20:37, December 5, 2015 (UTC)

RE:Check in

Hey LiR! Thanks for your message! I'm doing alright on the Wiki. It's a friendly community and I can always talk to them. And also there are not so many vandals here, which I compliment the admins for too! But what I find a pity, is that not so many users have really started advanced editing. I don't find that bad, I had to learn too. But what could be a nice idea is to have some sorts of program that helps users with editing. I know it sounds a bit the same as the adoption program, but this could be something else. This could be to encourage the whole community to start editing, and learn them the basics of editing, and guide them along! The idea can get some improvements, but I think that's a nice idea! :)

What's also nice to have some projects on the wiki! Making a good fanon with multiple (for example 3+) users, having a group that focuses on improving canon articles in a specific category. And you can get an award when you've did a good job. This could also be a good idea to stimulate the community, and award them for the hard work they put into the wiki. Also, because fanon is a major thing here, we could do some nice things with it too!

Let me know what you think! :D

RE:Check in 2

Hi LiR! Thanks for the message, I think contacting users in this way is a good way to make admins seem less remote. There was one suggestion I've been meaning to bring up. I've found that the pages tagged for cleanup have been a good way to focus on constructive edits, but it's not always clear to a less experienced editor what needs clearing up on the page. Some of them do give a reason, which makes it a lot easier to understand and feel confident in your edits. I think some way of communicating what specifically needs fixing on each page would help more users to be confident in canon editing. Other than that, I like Sims2Player's idea of having some editing tutorials, particularly for more complex things.

Thanks again, and I hope my comments aren't completely useless ;). Vpetmad (talk) 15:48, December 10, 2015 (UTC)

Question

Hello LiR. I have a question: When are you free to go on chat in the next few days (in UTC time zone)? I have a discreet concern about the wiki. Sims Plumbob Player (talk) (mistakes) 10:00, December 23, 2015 (UTC)

IRC channel reform

Hello! As a chanop on the IRC channel, you are asked to participate in a discussion involving the channel that could affect you. Please see Forum:IRC channel reform for the discussion thread. Feel free to ignore this message if you are not interested. Thanks, —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 21:55, June 2, 2016 (UTC)

As you have explicitly requested at Forum:IRC channel reform, I have removed your channel operator rights on the IRC channel. You will still be voiced when you join the channel. Thank you for your services! —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 12:00, June 17, 2016 (UTC)

Access to TSW's Facebook and Twitter pages

With regards to The Sims Wiki talk:Admin Portal#Use_of_Facebook_and_Twitter_profiles, I would like to request access for TSW's Facebook and Twitter pages. Although I can't promise that I will be too terribly active, as I've lost considerable interest in The Sims myself, I may be able to from time to time post some updates when I get the chance to. It will also allow for more administrators to have the rights to pass on moderation to new admins/representatives should the need arises, since I'm usually available even if I don't generally do anything.

RE: Fanon in the canon namespace

Sorry about that, yesterday was my first time back to the wiki in a few months and I just forgot, I'll remember in the future Carman39 (talk) 10:28, October 8, 2016 (UTC)

Portable infoboxes

Hi, I'm Speedit from the Vanguard volunteer team! To follow on from your mentoring request, I'll be available to help you here. I will prepare draft infobox in the template namespace and style them to retain the community's look and feel in MediaWiki:Themes.css. Any issues about the portability migration will be relayed back to you.

Thank you for your time! -SPD 14:29, December 14, 2016 (UTC)

I apologize for leaving this unattended to for a couple months. Thank you for your detailed reply and instruction!
I have prepared a base portable infobox theme aligning with the test infobox you kindly prepared. The code is lying at my common.css. I have also prepared a functional draft of the {{Game}} infobox, which supports the generation-centric color scheme of the original infobox. To my understanding, {{Vgcode}} and {{MGL}} standardise the name parameter and convert it into a generation variable for input into the color templates. The simplest solution to get the current infoboxes working is to use those two templates in the same manner and recolor using CSS. :)
I understand that the theme will likely change to the wiki's needs before becoming final. Pitching the infobox redesign to the community sounds like a good idea. So does the migration. Converting to portable infoboxes will hopefully allow your community to centrally implement and roll out redesigns like this faster.
You may view the fruit of my work by visiting my user sandbox and pasting the following code into the console. Do note I'd really need to post this CSS into a wiki stylesheet to show it to the community. :3
importStylesheet('User:Speedit/common.css');

Issue Regarding an Incident that has happened between me and a problematic user

I was hoping to direct your attention to a message that was left here regarding an incident that has happened between me and another user. I know my actions may not seem justifiable on the outside, but on the inside I felt really uncomfortable, and I somehow had to put a stop to it. I do not wish to go into further details about it here, as I feel that it is too sensitive to do so publicly. ― C.Syde (talk | contribs) 10:13, March 6, 2017 (UTC)

Infobox Sim addition

So I have been lately seeing you work on the Infobox Sim template and since I still got a chance to say this, could it be possible to add clubs from The Sims 4: Get Together to the social standing section? It has already social groups from The Sims 3: University Life and adding clubs won't probably do any bad. Just most likely have it the same way social groups do it, but add the pre-made Windenburg club icons, rename the "Social group" of the infobox to "Clubs" and have the

|group1=
|group2=
|group3=

system be

|club1=
|club2=
|club3=

This system would mostly be for the pre-made Sims living in Windenburg. The Dutch Sims Wiki does this and it doesn't look that bad. - SimDestroyer (talk) 10:09, December 22, 2017 (UTC)

RE: Pagecover conversion

Hi LiR. I'm glad to hear that, and though I might have read this message a little bit too late, I'd love to check it out. I just read your message in Discord about it too late as well. Oh well. I hope you don't mind. Nikel Talk Vote! 08:35, February 13, 2018 (UTC)

RE: Have you considered

Thank you for the recommendation. I'll definitely apply. Ѧüя◎ґ (talk) 21:26, February 27, 2018 (UTC)

Marking as WIP

Hello, I'm somewhat new here and wonder how one should label a page as a WIP, or is otherwise in active development and subject to change, if needed at all. For now I'm just using "WIP." Thanks. Ultraworldwarrior (talk) 05:12, March 8, 2018 (UTC)

Infobox Sim

I just saw that two articles are already using the new Sim infobox. Is it live and ready to use now? IsaiahhsnobgIsaiahScribblenauts PlumbobDisscuss - My Fanon 16:11, June 8, 2018 (UTC)
