We've got birthdays aplenty in October, so be sure to give a very special message to those users! Aside from that, I figure there are a few things we could try and revive this month, like User Created Contests, so I figure we'd try and organize a week for contests. If you have any ideas for community events in future months, leave a comment below!

- Other stuff
- Revisiting voting requirements - A proposal to change the wiki's voting requirements; this is an important discussion and consensus is needed.
- Resolving Proposed Policies - A discussion on finalizing old proposed policy ideas.
- Encouraging community input - A discussion on how to get members of the community more involved in discussions (gee, isn't this ironic?)
- Policy for rumored games - A proposed policy to deal with new game rumors.
- A discussion on the Same-sex relationships page over whether the warning on the page should be kept or removed.
Please keep in mind, all these discussions are completely open to everyone! We encourage and we **need** the input of regular TSW contributors! These discussions are what help us as a community make the decisions that impact the future of the wiki - decisions like whether to activate or deactivate Wiki Chat, whether or not to delete Player Stories, whether administrators should be voted on. These discussions matter, and as a member of The Sims Wiki, your opinion matters too! In fact, your opinion is just as important as the opinion of anyone else, even administrators and bureaucrats. This is a wiki that we all build and run together, and in order to do that, all of us have to be involved in making these decisions. So please, take a few minutes to look at the Community Portal talk page and weigh in on these important conversations, or start one of your own.
