The Sims Wiki is a wiki, not a social networking site. The Sims Wiki focuses on information about The Sims series much more than its users. Users who only come here just to talk, chat, and edit their user pages are generally frowned upon.
The Sims Wiki is not a repository of The Sims games Edit
The Sims Wiki does not provide The Sims games. It would be highly illegal for us to do so. The Sims Wiki also does not allow downloads/torrents of these games upon request. The closest it can come to is trailers and gameplay videos from YouTube.
The Sims Wiki is not a modification site Edit
The Sims Wiki does not allow mods, downloads, and custom content to be posted on the main articles. All that is allowed are widely-known mods/custom content.
The Sims Wiki is not an advertisement service Edit
The Sims Wiki does not allow users to advertise their sites or services on this wiki. However, The Sims-related websites (primarily fansites) are allowed on The Sims Wiki:Affiliates. Spam links, etc. are strictly intolerable on any Wikia wiki.
The Sims Wiki is not a democracy Edit
The Sims Wiki uses community consensus to make many decisions, especially regarding decisions which affect the users of the wiki in a dramatic way. However, many decisions are made by administrators with little or no consultation, and editors have a large amount of discretion when making edits, and do not necessarily need to consult others or be given permission from an administrator or the community before making an edit. Votes should almost never be used to settle disputes or to make community decisions, as this stifles the ability of administrators to perform their duties, limits the ability of users to edit boldly, and generally ignores the opinions of many users for the sake of obtaining a majority of voters.
The Sims Wiki is not an official site Edit
The Sims Wiki is in no way officially connected to Electronic Arts, Maxis, or any other stakeholders in the The Sims franchise. Users should not expect their contributions to be seen by anyone officially connected to The Sims series. The Sims Wiki only purports to be a general resource and community site about The Sims.
The Sims Wiki is not an image hosting site Edit
The Sims Wiki is not intended to host images other than those which are used in articles and on userpages. Users should expect for irrelevant images to be deleted by an admin on sight.
