Game and content blog postsEdit

Red x cross uncheck bad
Issue is not resolved
Discussion is stale. —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 18:29, June 3, 2016 (UTC)

I think we should make a more focused effort on writing blog posts for upcoming games/expansions/new content as it's announced. I know that we used to write these quite a lot during the TS3 era (Nikel, especially), but since TS4 has come out it's mostly fallen by the wayside. The only two blogs I can think of like this are this and this.

At a time where it seems to be harder and harder to get people involved in our front page activities, those two blogs have generated quite a bit of traffic; check out the poll numbers and the comments as proof. To contrast, consider the average traffic that one of our weekly news blogs gets. Blogs about game releases seem to be a more effective way of reaching out to our reader community. Of course, one of the main goals in this is to turn readers into editors, but anything that is adding to our traffic here is helpful.

I'd like to know if there's anyone interested in helping to write these blogs. The blogs should preferably be written within a day or two of a game/content announcement or game/content release. If there's interest here in writing future blogs, we can come up with some sort of system for making sure that each major announcement gets a related blog post, since the idea of this is to make sure that we're not missing any announcements (like the GtW expansion announcement, or Newcrest). Thoughts? - LostInRiverview talkblogcontribs 16:40, June 12, 2015 (UTC)

I was actually thinking of doing a small review on Newcrest (similar to Lab's and yourselfs reviews). I'd be willing to partake in more these announcements and review blogs. ~ Beds (talk - blog) 16:52, June 12, 2015 (UTC)
I could try to help out as well. I've also been playing some older sims games recently and I've been thinking about writing up reviews/playing notes for those as well. ђ talk 01:50, June 15, 2015 (UTC)

Old news. —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 20:26, August 1, 2016 (UTC)

Today, a user has joined on chat with an unacceptable username and started saying wikia staff are pigs and spammed a further while I made the screenshot. Sims Plumbob Player (talk) (mistakes) 14:32, December 12, 2015 (UTC)

That user is currently cross-wiki blocked, so no further action is necessary. -- LostInRiverview (Plumbob Administrator)Contact me here • 17:01, December 12, 2015 (UTC)

When I made this family navigation template for my fanon I did not realize that I already had one. Could someone please delete the old one? - KaruKaterchen (talk/ fanon) 16:03, June 6, 2016 (UTC)

Done. Dharden (talk) 16:13, June 6, 2016 (UTC)

Troll user in chatEdit

Hello. Today in chat, there was a troll user that continuously started spamming, leaving and rejoining. I guess it's not very serious, but this user did spam which means that he broke a rule of chat Sims Plumbob Player (talk) (mistakes) 18:06, July 21, 2016 (UTC).

Investigating... —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 18:14, July 21, 2016 (UTC)
I've taken some chat logs, but nothing else needs to be done atm because the user hasn't used chat in a while. Re-report if the user comes back and is disruptive. —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 20:26, August 1, 2016 (UTC)

Fanon deletionEdit

I request a deletion on my fanon. It's not working out for me. Maybe I'll make another one that I feel comfortable with.
