The current last two edits to the wiki have been vandalism by "DonutswithJellyFilling!" They've gone over an hour with no action, although a moderator has told them about how they deleted some "non-constructive" edits somewhere. They've vandalised the The Sims 4 page to show him admitting to the vandalism and they've added a video. I am guessing he's abandoned the site, but...

- We are monitoring the user actively. In the future, please refrain from making edits like this, as this too is also considered to be vandalism, and can get you blocked as well. —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 15:07, July 10, 2018 (UTC)
Page protection on The Sims 4Edit
I've thrown The Sims 4 under a weeklong semi-protection due to an ungoing string of vandalism. Most of the vandalism culprits have been either blocked or they've stopped editing. What's noteworthy is that previous instances of vandalism were incorrectly reverted; multiple different users in a row vandalized the page. One vandal's contributions were rolled-back, but that rollback didn't revert the other vandalism instances. I ended up having to manually revert back to an edit on July 27th in order to restore the page to normal. As I said, the page is under semi-protection for now, but it might be worth making that protection permanent if we continue to have issues, considering that The Sims 4 is a highly noteworthy topic. -- LostInRiverview talk · blog · contribs 03:09, August 12, 2018 (UTC)
- Indeed, I did incorrectly revert the vandalism, assuming they were the only vandal that had vandalised the page. Since I'm so used to vandalism being reverted before another user joins in on the vandalism. I guess it pays to be more careful to check for multiple bad faith vandals - despite being busy with other things - just in-case. ― C.Syde (talk | contribs) 12:13, August 12, 2018 (UTC)
Could the following page please be restored:
Barnacle Bay Sims Edit
Maybe this is the more appropriate place to ask.
Many articles about Sims from Barnacle Bay are missing career information, but I do not have Barnacle Bay so I can't fix the edits myself. An example of this is Laurel Lai. The page states that her Lifetime Wish is Emperor Of Evil, but there is no information to state whether she is actually working in the criminal career, if she is unemployed, or if she is working in a different career despite her LTW just like Nick Alto. It is impossible to tell what careers the Sims have employment in (or lack thereof) due to this missing information, especially if one does not have the Barnacle Bay downloadable world.

Can the following pages please be restored:
Fanon:Pleasantview & Fanon:Veronaville
- Hi there, please be more specific about the pages you want restored. Fanon:Pleasantview and Fanon:Veronaville are currently disambiguation pages, with multiple pages listed under the same title. Please specify the exact name of the pages you would like undeleted. —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 16:02, August 19, 2018 (UTC)
New Fanon User Edit
User:RCS Sims looks like they need help with their fanon. They're are adding information to articles and making new pages that is actually their own fanon. Acherontia Styx (talk) 14:57, August 21, 2018 (UTC)
