Veloci-RoosterEdit

Icon yes check v
Issue is resolved
Article has been improved. --I am k6ka Talk to me! See what I have done 13:32, May 7, 2015 (UTC)

This is another deletion nomination that needs some explaining... the nomination says that the article doesn't warrant its own page, which I'm inclined to agree with. But should the information on the page instead be merged into another article, and if so, which article? -- LostInRiverview talk ~ blog 07:14, June 22, 2014 (UTC)

The list of NPCs possibly? But I support the deletion. -- C.Syde (talk | contribs) 07:20, June 22, 2014 (UTC)

I support deletion. The Veloci-Rooster is possibly one of the last things people will be searching for anyway. Shouldn't let it clutter up the wiki. If anything, it could be merged into a list of NPCs, as C.Syde has said. ―The Tim Man (Infinite HistoriesGalactic CruciblesThe Sims WikiHallows MaleficentWhy I'm here in the first place) 11:08, March 22, 2015 (UTC)
I disagree with deletion. This article covers an animal NPC with a minor story role--similar to Mata in Castaway Stories. I feel that the information is sufficient enough that it covers it warrants its own page. Ѧüя◎ґ (talk) 05:16, April 4, 2015 (UTC)

Category:LGBT SimsEdit

Icon yes check v
Issue is resolved
Category is a "soft" keep since there is not consensus towards deletion. Category can be re-nominated if so desired. -- LostInRiverview talkblogcontribs 23:36, September 29, 2015 (UTC)

Is it worthy to add this category with only one or two or more Sims? I know it can be add in some time but some of the Sims that stated in this section has said they are possible in LGBT category and this is unpredictable unless the developers said this who actually is or not. (Only the Davis-Welles couple had a same-sex relationship of other Sims and the Shear couples.) ~~.ThePeculiarMe | (talk to me) | (my mistakes) 00:21, July 26, 2014 (UTC)

IIRC, there is already a category for homosexual Sims. Ѧüя◎ґ (talk) 00:39, July 26, 2014 (UTC)
I'm pretty sure there's more than one LGBT Sim. Audrey Shear, Mark Davis-Welles, Michael Dandy, Rita Davis-Welles and Virginia Supine would all properly fall into this category for sure (I don't know why they're not listed). I'm ultimately on the fence about whether this should be deleted, since it could be implied that there are several other Sims in the series that could be LGBT but who we can't confirm. - LostInRiverview talk ~ blog 00:45, July 26, 2014 (UTC)
Fishy, Nikel reverted IP's edit. I don't know why. :| ~~.ThePeculiarMe | (talk to me) | (my mistakes) 01:01, July 26, 2014 (UTC)
While there currently are only four Sims that definitely fall into this category, the release of The Sims 4 isn't that far off. Since EA has finally "breached the wall" of including Sims who are definitely in same-sex relationships, it seems possible that there could be some in that game, so I think we can leave it for the time being. Dharden (talk) 02:35, July 26, 2014 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── I'd be fine with keeping the category, however the structure should be totally changed. Gay Sims, Lesbians, Bisexual Sims -> LGBT Sims -> Sims. Ѧüя◎ґ (talk) 04:19, July 26, 2014 (UTC)

I never thought about that. We should keep this since TS4 will may have more LGBT Sims. And yes, since there are no transgender Sims, if there are any it will said by a Sim's bio or an extension of a spa or hospital interaction in the next game/s. ~~.ThePeculiarMe | (talk to me) | (my mistakes) 04:29, July 26, 2014 (UTC)
I'm beginning to think that we should keep the category, at least for now, but change the name so that it refers to relationships. After all, preset relationships are something we can see in all games, whether or not we can see preset preference scores. Dharden (talk) 01:25, July 27, 2014 (UTC)
I'd probably go with Dharden's suggestion myself. One question though - would possibly gay or bisexual Sims like Circe Beaker, Titania Summerdream, Ariel Capp, Kent Capp, Nervous Subject and Jason Cleveland fall under this category. Or is this category only for Sims who are gay / bisexual in their pre-set back-stories? -- C.Syde (talk | contribs) 07:11, July 27, 2014 (UTC)
I think we should limit it to those cases where there's a pre-made relationship or it's explicitly part of the back-story. Those preset preference levels in The Sims 2 are only stable as long as those Sims don't engage in any romantic interactions, and which way they ultimately go is up to the player. Those preset preferences aren't so high that a moderately determined player can't eventually change them. Dharden (talk) 13:13, July 27, 2014 (UTC)
Can we can the category into Sims who are engage in a same-sex relationship or something shorter than this? And getting the subcategories as Auror suggested or all the Sims will be in one category. ~~.ThePeculiarMe | (talk to me) | (my mistakes) 13:21, July 27, 2014 (UTC)
Oh, apologies. At that time, I thought the anon only did that to Audrey. I didn't see the rest of his contributions. I'm just afraid if The Sims 2 editors would exploit this category and claim everyone who has slight preference to the same gender to be gay/lesbian/bi, even though it might just be an oversight and not intended that way. It's actually happening with elders and Sims who have different genetic hair color with their physical hair color, and they're claimed to have dyed their hair. I really don't believe that's the case at all. I agree that we should limit the usage like Dharden explained though.
I'm not sure if we should keep the category or not though... Nikel Talk Vote! 05:45, July 28, 2014 (UTC)
Per Dharden and Nikel. -- C.Syde (talk | contribs) 06:10, July 28, 2014 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── @ThePeculiarMe: A category can only be renamed by deleting it and creating a new category. All the articles that were in the old category have to be put in the new one manually or by bot, and all the links to the old one have to be removed the same way. Dharden (talk) 13:40, July 28, 2014 (UTC)

We have three (or is it four?) bots that can speedily move categories. It shouldn't be difficult at all. --k6ka (talk | contribs) 13:46, July 28, 2014 (UTC)
-LGBT person here and a total Wikia noob so pardon any mistakes in editing this BUT I just discovered via an Autostraddle article that there were pre-made LGBT sims and it was probably the happiest Sims-related discovery I've made since the day I discovered passionate kissing can lead to having babies (Sims 1). So I made a category for bisexual sims with the idea of eventually making a category for lesbian and gay sims too...and then it was deleted, referring me to this page, which is apparently also a candidate for deletion. WTF? Effing KEEP the category folks, it's documentation and it really means a lot to those of us queer kids who grew up playing this game. Yeah, ideally there should be separate subcategories under LGBT because if sims can be sorted according to categories like "may have dyed their hair" or "love grilled salmon" then there can damn well be categories of who has a baseline pref for the same sex or both sexes (as opposed to undetermined.) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 5.152.201.148 (talkcontribs) 03:08, September 22, 2014 (UTC) - Please sign your comments with ~~~~
While I understand where you're coming from, the decision to delete or not delete the category should not at all depend on whether it "really means a lot" to people who might find it. Categories exist to organize information, not to inspire people. Additionally, we also have a page which extensively details non-straight Sims in the series. As for individual sub-categories, it's not practical to create them if there aren't Sims in the game that can be sorted into that category. Note for instance that we don't have a category for transgender Sims on the wiki. It's not because we're opposed to having that category, but it's because there are no transgender Sims in the series, and therefore no purpose to the category.
So, discussion of whether or not to delete this template should not be biased towards personal feelings, but instead towards whether the category is needed from an organizational standpoint. - LostInRiverview talk ~ blog 03:33, September 22, 2014 (UTC)
While there has been talk about deleting this category, it is agreed that there should be something that is somewhat similar especially since The Sims 4 will probably have some, so don't worry about there being no category to identify these Sims. One of the things mentioned in the previous discussion, of which I agree with as well, is that the category should be used with those Sims who have a clear back story of being such or are in a same-sex relationship. Just because Sims have a very slight preference toward the same gender in SimPE does not make them an LGBT Sim because in most cases it is only a point or two, which isn't really anything. - Icemandeaf (talk) 03:24, September 22, 2014 (UTC)
While this is still in the discussion, I'll put the positive and very visible LGBT Sims into that category for a while. ~~.ThePeculiarMe | (talk to me) | (my mistakes) 05:53, September 22, 2014 (UTC)

PigeonEdit

Red x cross uncheck bad
Discussion closed
Closing discussion as keep as there is no consensus to delete this article. --I am k6ka Talk to me! See what I have done 22:35, April 15, 2015 (UTC)

I don't see the importance of this article at all. Pigeons are just 3 things in the series: a special effect, a minor pet, and means of communication. Except the last one, this article is pretty much insignificant. Why would we have a separate article for a special effect? There are countless of special effects in The Sims 3, e.g. rainbows, hot air balloons, the train in Champs Les Sims, ocean waves, buoys, sailboats, schools of diving area fish, and manta rays. We don't have articles of these things for the same reason. Pigeons are also a minor pet, but there are also many other minor pets, and we certainly don't create separate article of each minor pet.

The only thing worth noting is as a means of communication in The Sims Medieval. Even then, it lacks information in general, and I think it's better mentioned in phone instead. Nikel Talk Vote! 06:50, August 24, 2014 (UTC)

I think the page is detailed enough and has enough references to it throughout the games to make it worth keeping. I oppose deletion. - LostInRiverview talk ~ blog 06:53, August 24, 2014 (UTC)
I personally believe its got enough information and I don't see deletion as being warranted but I'd like to get a bit more input before we go either way. ђ talk 00:57, November 10, 2014 (UTC)
Other than being the equivalent of a phone, is there anything unique about the pigeon in The Sims Medieval? If there is, we could add that to the article instead of deleting it at this time. --I am k6ka Talk to me! See what I have done 21:10, December 2, 2014 (UTC)
I'm fairly sure you can eat pigeons in The Sims Medieval, I believe its the equivalent of the low cooking level meals like Mac and Cheese in the main series. ђ talk 02:58, December 3, 2014 (UTC)

StrangevilleEdit

Icon yes check v
Issue is resolved
Deleted and redirected to Strangetown - LostInRiverview talkblogcontribs 23:36, September 29, 2015 (UTC)

I have never seen anyone use Strangeville as a nickname for Strangetown. Secondly, Strangeville is a custom neighborhood in The Sims 3 Store, available here. It doesn't appear notable enough to warrant its own article. --I am k6ka Talk to me! See what I have done 12:25, February 1, 2015 (UTC)

It's because of this. I don't know why all the fuss about a minor thing. Delete it if it bothers you that much. --- ʀodrigo x (talk)(contribs) 12:28, February 1, 2015 (UTC)
Yeah, I don't really think it warrants even as a redirect? After all, it only appears as something mentioned at a bio incorrectly. Not many people would normally refer "Strangeville" to Strangetown unless they read the aliens' bio. Nikel Talk Vote! 12:38, February 1, 2015 (UTC)
I disagree. The Strangeville redirect should be kept and a note should be added about the name variant on Strangetown. Ѧüя◎ґ (talk) 16:14, February 1, 2015 (UTC)
I don't think keeping it as a redirect does any harm. -- LostInRiverview talkblogcontribs 23:33, March 9, 2015 (UTC)
Where I stand now, I don't think this page warrants a re-direct, let alone it's own page. I don't think the term "Strangeville" is official enough to be kept as a re-direct to Strangetown. I support deletion. -- C.Syde (talk | contribs) 02:37, March 10, 2015 (UTC)

Deleted as per consensus, but set as redirect to Strangetown since consensus was lacking on whether or not a redirect is needed. -- LostInRiverview talkblogcontribs 23:36, September 29, 2015 (UTC)

Template:GamesubEdit

Icon yes check v
Issue is resolved
As consensus is favorable to delete the template, and considering it has never even been used before, the template has been deleted. --I am k6ka Talk to me! See what I have done 12:36, April 8, 2015 (UTC)

So, I was browsing through the templates section of the wiki, and I came across this little template here. It generally creates a Navigational box for walkthrough's, cheats & patches. I noticed that it was tagged under "Unused", so generally, I was going to delete it. But, decided not to and instead came to the conclusion to bring it up for a deletion discussion. According to the history of the page, it was last used 5 years ago. Should we just delete it, or attempt to bring it back? ~ Beds (talk - blog) 17:06, March 9, 2015 (UTC)

Eh, I think it's pretty dated? And it has never been used before. The question would be if we need a navigation box on cheat / patch / walkthrough pages. I don't think we have any plans for a navigation box on these pages, so I think it's okay to delete it. Nikel Talk Vote! 10:24, March 10, 2015 (UTC)
Patch and cheats links are already at the bottom of the {{game}} template and are included if the pages exist via an #ifexist function (see The Sims 2: FreeTime and The Sims 3). Therefore there is no use for it, I support deleting it. ђ talk 12:09, March 15, 2015 (UTC)

Category:Traits from The Sims 4 Edit

Red x cross uncheck bad
Issue is not resolved
No consensus to delete category — changes to how we deliver TS4 traits should go in a TSW:CD thread. --I am k6ka Talk to me! See what I have done 23:48, October 18, 2015 (UTC)

As we have done with the Business Savvy article, the current consensus is to keep traits from The Sims 4 in Trait (The Sims 4). Does this mean that this category, along with all the pages in it, should be deleted? Please advise. --I am k6ka Talk to me! See what I have done 18:45, March 12, 2015 (UTC)

Icon yes check v
Support deletion of the category and additional trait pages, along with editing other pages to direct to Trait (The Sims 4), or setting the trait pages as redirects. -- LostInRiverview talkblogcontribs 00:00, March 14, 2015 (UTC)
I support deletion. Nikel Talk Vote! 11:56, March 16, 2015 (UTC)
I don't know how the trait system works in TS4 as I haven't had the opportunity to play the game but if we're keeping all the traits on the one article instead of giving them all pages I see no need for the category. ђ talk 12:03, March 16, 2015 (UTC)
Do we redirect trait pages to their relevant entry at Trait (The Sims 4)? That would be a lot of redirects to create. --I am k6ka Talk to me! See what I have done 02:23, March 18, 2015 (UTC)
I think that would be better than simply deleting them. Even if we edit the pages linking to the deleted pages, readers may still try to search for pages on those individual traits. Having redirect pages doesn't cause any harm and it's a relatively painless process to make them. -- LostInRiverview talkblogcontribs 03:03, March 18, 2015 (UTC)
I no longer support deletion, due to the fact that the category is currently in use and there is no established consensus that traits will not be given their own pages. Until such a consensus is decided, I think the category should remain in place. -- LostInRiverview talkblogcontribs 23:40, September 29, 2015 (UTC)

Sims AirEdit

I did a Google Search on this mod and can't seem to find it. If it does exist, it not being easy to find via Google probably means it fails notability. --I am k6ka Talk to me! See what I have done 02:30, June 2, 2015 (UTC)

I agree. I was just wondering the same thing myself. -- Icemandeaf (talk) 02:32, June 2, 2015 (UTC)
Agreed. Could it be that the author intended to write it up as a fanon article? - LostInRiverview talkblogcontribs 03:18, June 2, 2015 (UTC)

Deformed Babies GlitchEdit

Original discussion moved here by Nikel:

Wouldn't this fit better on said article? AFAIK only very serious/notable glitches ever get a page of their own, like the Corrupt file on The Exchange or the Save game error. --I am k6ka Talk to me! See what I have done 14:30, August 3, 2015 (UTC)

I don't think it even warrants a mention in the glitch page. The information is very sparse, unreliable, and conjectural. Where did the original editor get the statistics from? It doesn't even explain what the glitch is about, how it's produced, or why it happens. I suggest it be deleted instead. Nikel Talk Vote! 02:08, August 4, 2015 (UTC)

Natural PoolsEdit

I think it's too early to make an article of it at the moment. We should wait until the game is released or at least until we can get more information about the game. Right now it serves nothing more than a placeholder article, waiting for the game to be released. We can write the overview of what natural pool is about in the main EP page anyway.

On top of all, the article title is against our standard. Nikel Talk Vote! 06:00, August 12, 2015 (UTC)

It's too short to warrant it's own page, we don't even know if it ever will warrant it's own page, and I do feel that it's too early to have an article about it at the moment. So unfortunately, I must support deletion of this page. ― C.Syde (talk | contribs) 06:04, August 12, 2015 (UTC)
Until we know more about them, I support a merge and redirect into Swimming pool. -- LostInRiverview talkblogcontribs 13:36, August 12, 2015 (UTC)

Genie Midlock (NPC)Edit

I am aware that it's a little soon to be bringing this up, but I do support the deletion of this page, for the reasons given for the nomination for deletion: ("Redundant. Largely duplicated in Genie, and adequately covered there.")

I certainly agree that pretty much everything that isn't already covered in the Genie article, if any, can certainly be covered there. However, I have always felt that perhaps there should be a section for the Genie's simology details. But if the majority doesn't agree, I certainly have no arguments to oppose their beliefs. ― C.Syde (talk | contribs) 05:50, September 24, 2015 (UTC)

File:Artistic (TS3).png and File:Trait Artistic small.pngEdit

I've just been browsing some unused files, and I found "File:Artistic (TS3).png" which is an unused image. However it is a better quality version of another image "File:Trait Artistic small.png" which is far from unused.

I'm inclined to support the deletion of the "Trait Artistic small.png" file and have "Artistic (TS3)" re-named in it's place, to avoid having to manually update the file links on the pages that use "Trait Artistic small". However the "Artistic (TS3)" image is a slightly different size which may cause it to appear differently in the place of "Trait Artistic small".

For those reasons, I've decided not to take matters like this into my own hands, and in any case I wasn't going to take this matter into my own hands, because I want to know what others think about this. ― C.Syde (talk | contribs) 07:21, October 29, 2015 (UTC)

The Urbz 2Edit

I cannot find any reliable or official sources confirming this game's existence. This goes against our policy on unreleased games, in that all claims to a game must be supported by a citation. —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 01:20, November 23, 2015 (UTC)

I am inclined to agree with deletion as per the Unreleased Games Policy's rules on unconfirmed games. If there is no official confirmation of the game from EA somewhere, then it would be considered a "rumored game". There are specific rules in place that determine how we handle those rumors, one rule being that information about game rumors can't originate from web forums. Even if the game was confirmed (which I have seen no evidence of), the article still lacks any sort of citation to any website confirming anything being claimed. -- LiR talkblogcontribs 03:29, November 23, 2015 (UTC)

The issue is that said source was later taken down by an EA representative. If it was taken down by EA for legal reasons, then we definitely can't have it here on The Sims Wiki. —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 11:46, November 23, 2015 (UTC)
I don't think legality is an issue here. We can provide information as much as we'd like, so long as we don't infringe on their copyright, trademarks, or other protections. And, the onus is on EA to seek the removal of said information, rather than us to just assume that it isn't allowed here. Regardless, I still favor deletion at this time, as per my previous post.

An EA representative removed the post, therefore confirming that it was fake. I support deletion. ~ Beds (talk - blog) 16:10, November 23, 2015 (UTC)
I also support deletion, for all reasons stated above. Vpetmad (talk) 16:29, November 23, 2015 (UTC)

Since there appears to be agreement that it should be deleted, that has been done. Dharden (talk) 16:44, November 23, 2015 (UTC)

ETA: The reference to "The Urbz 2" in The Urbz: Sims in the City has also been removed. Dharden (talk) 16:51, November 23, 2015 (UTC)

United StatesEdit

My rationale is: Isn't directly connected to The Sims series (like Electronic Arts or Maxis); doesn't warrant an article on The Sims Wiki.k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 22:58, December 21, 2015 (UTC)

Support - for those exact reasons. Vpetmad (talk) 23:04, December 21, 2015 (UTC)
Support - I was actually considering nominating this article for deletion myself :P I don't see the point in keeping it. All the information on the page can easily be covered in another article, or if it's not relevant, it can be removed entirely. I support the deletion of this page. ― C.Syde (talk | contribs) 23:04, December 21, 2015 (UTC)
Deleted, for the reasons stated. Dharden (talk) 23:08, December 21, 2015 (UTC)

Aileen RauvuEdit

Issue is resolved
Consensus here is in favor of keeping the article. LiR talkblogcontribs 04:23, February 5, 2016 (UTC)

So this article was nominated for deletion by Sumaes01 with the rationale: She has only appeared in one trailer, has no renders, and is not a well-known sim in the community.

I unfortunately oppose deletion, if it were not for the She can be found in the gallery sentence in the article. If the Sim exists in the gallery, then someone should download it and add the details there. Also, I disagree with the "is not a well-known sim in the community" statement, because there are tons and tons of Sims that the community barely knows that have articles on this wiki. If we were to delete those articles about "Sims nobody cares about" we'd be thousands of articles lighter. —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 23:40, January 11, 2016 (UTC)

I was neutral towards this initially, but given the reasons K6ka has listed above, I have no other option but to oppose the deletion as well. While I can understand why a few users wouldn't think that articles like this should be kept, that's not something I can support, because if I were to support the deletion of this article, then I might as well nominate tons of other articles of lesser known Sims for deletion as well. ― C.Syde (talk | contribs) 23:44, January 11, 2016 (UTC)
(edit conflict) Opposed: I agree with those same points. Being "not well-known" could mean "not one of the Goths" in some people's view. -- Icemandeaf (talk) 23:46, January 11, 2016 (UTC)
I agree with the points stated above, and therefore oppose deletion. Dharden (talk) 01:27, January 12, 2016 (UTC)
I stand opposed to deletion, in agreement to the points listed above me. -- LiR talkblogcontribs 03:47, January 12, 2016 (UTC)
I support the deletion because Aileen Rauvu has only been used for promotional purposes (one video, to be more specific) and there are more major promotional sims from The Sims 4 basegame that still do not have their own articles, yet she does. I think the information about her should be moved to List of Sims used in promotional materials because the article will stay a stub even if we keep it. There's only so much material that can be added to her article. Sumaes01 (talk) 04:00, January 12, 2016 (UTC)
Reply: The issue here is that the Sims listed on that page don't appear in a game, whereas Aileen Rauvu is downloadable through the Gallery. Since the gallery version is a Maxis creation, we can treat that version as canon. My vote remains a soft keep. -- LiR talkblogcontribs 04:08, January 12, 2016 (UTC)
What Icemandeaf said is something I really have to agree with. There are tons of less known Sims as C.Syde65 also stated. They don't need to be deleted as well so this page should be kept on The Sims Wiki. So I oppose deletion. Sims Plumbob Player (talk) (mistakes) 07:52, January 12, 2016 (UTC)
Oppose: If we were to delete this article, then we would have to delete multiple other Sim articles. She can be played in-game, so therefore should remain on the wiki. ~ Beds (talk - blog) 13:53, January 12, 2016 (UTC)
Oppose: She has no less to say about her than any other minor Sim, so I think we should keep the page. Vpetmad (talk) 15:30, January 12, 2016 (UTC)

We have consensus here in favor of keeping the article. Therefore, I am marking this discussion closed. -- LiR talkblogcontribs 04:23, February 5, 2016 (UTC)

Template:User democratEdit

A little over a year ago, we deleted a template that stated that a user was in favor of same-sex marriage. The argument that I made, and that ultimately several other people consented with, was that real-world politics should be avoided on The Sims Wiki in order to avoid the conflicts that can sometimes accompany them. I feel that this point is still valid, and as a result I would like to nominate {{User democrat}} for deletion. -- LiR talkblogcontribs 05:19, January 24, 2016 (UTC)

Reviving this discussion in hopes of reaching a consensus. Personally I am neutral on this subject, if only because I wish to avoid having to entangle myself into the spaghetti-mess that is politics, but for sure I can see the arguments for and against this. —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 16:54, October 23, 2016 (UTC)
Sims wiki policy concerning real world politics doesn't have a consistent record. I'm opposing the deletion of the template. Ѧüя◎ґ (talk) 07:31, December 6, 2016 (UTC)

Template:Warning and Template:Warning-textEdit

I propose that we delete Template:Warning and Template:Warning-text, as they have been superseded by the new user warning templates. Since the main argument for creating the new warnings was the inadequacy of the old warning, we should fully finish the job and delete the original warning template. No user pages contain the template through transclusion so we won't be breaking anything; all references to the template are through links instead, so we could set the template up as a redirect to The Sims Wiki:Warning instead. There may be a historical argument for keeping the template, but I'd argue that any historical benefit to keeping it is outweighed by the possibility that the old warning may be used, when the new user warnings system was designed to replace it. Ultimately I think we lose very little by just deleting the old warning template (and its auxiliary text template) outright. -- LiR talk · blog · contribs 14:05, December 17, 2016 (UTC)

The old warning can be wrapped in <noinclude></noinclude> tags to prevent anything meaningful from being transcluded or substituted. We've kept our old-old warning template for historical purposes and it has never been used, likely due to the fact that it has been moved to another name. Perhaps we can do that here as well. —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 14:41, December 17, 2016 (UTC)

Game guide:Being a witchEdit

I believe this needs to be deleted or substantially re-written. Since The Sims: Makin' Magic does not use the term "witch", any statements about what a "witch" is like or how to "be a witch" in Makin' Magic are editorial comments by the guide's creator. So, when the guide defines "a witch" as a Sim who has learned all spells and charms, that is one player's interpretation, not anything that comes from the game itself. Dharden (talk) 14:07, January 4, 2017 (UTC)

Support rewrite (and possibly a page move to "Game guide:Practicing magic") and have it encompass magic from all games in the series, which would include not just Makin' Magic but The Sims 2: Apartment Life as well (and maybe The Sims 3: Supernatural, although I do not own TS3). This game guide isn't wholly inappropriate or incorrect, and there's quite a bit that can be salvaged. —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 14:43, January 4, 2017 (UTC)
That would work. I don't own TS3, either, and it's been a long time since I've played TS1, though I think I still remember a fair bit. Dharden (talk) 15:14, January 4, 2017 (UTC)
There are multiple accurate resources online that could help with the rewrite. Perhaps SimsVIP? Carl's Sim Guides? I support the rewrite, nevertheless. ~ Beds (talk - blog) 22:58, January 4, 2017 (UTC)
I support a keep and rewrite. -- LiR talk · blog · contribs 03:58, January 5, 2017 (UTC)
Considering all this, I changed the template from {{Delete}} to {{Cleanup}}. Dharden (talk) 12:58, January 5, 2017 (UTC)
