Re: Talk:Unborn Baby Gorden Edit

Done. -- Icemandeaf (talk) 00:41, October 12, 2014 (UTC)

I noticed that afterwards as well. I had to find a way to get to it so that I could remove it. It is done now. -- Icemandeaf (talk) 00:50, October 12, 2014 (UTC)

Regarding those Sims Edit

How exactly can you determine that those Sims have corrupted faces? Since they have no character data, I can't really see how one could make that out. Feel free to tell me why and how. :) OoppDecks (talk) 08:52, October 13, 2014 (UTC)

Warning for Christiandominicballesteros25Edit

I wanted to let you know that I removed the warning you gave to Christiandominicballesteros25. While that user's edits were not constructive, they do not appear to be clearly in bad faith, so we should give them the benefit of the doubt. I would recommend issuing level one warnings if they continue to create pages like that or make unconstructive edits, as it seems they are merely inexperienced instead of deliberately harmful. -- LostInRiverview talk ~ blog 07:24, October 23, 2014 (UTC)

A note about linkingEdit

This is not a critical matter at all, and it hardly even means anything, but I'd just like to point out that there's absolutely no necessity to link every single word you know that has its own page, like in here. To me, it's not only slightly annoying, but also very pointless and irrelevant. Believe me; almost all users who read your messages have already known that Sim, interest, or teenager articles exist in this wiki, and I'm pretty certain no one ever clicked the link anyway (who wants to read about Stuff Packs when we're talking about neighborhood corruption?). Also, why do you keep insisting on using the redirect links, e.g. [[Sims]] instead of [[Sim]]s, [[skills]] instead of [[skill]]s, or [[power]] instead of [[power (aspiration)]] (it's not even the right link)? Have you never seen me correcting these little things? Sure it's also a minor thing, but can't you just follow up?

Too many links can confuse someone, especially to those who are not familiar with the wiki. Only give a link to something that's absolutely relevant to the topic, like a link to a different thread in the forum (see, I don't need to link to forum because you know what it is and where to find it), or to a relevant thing (like when I linked "here" to the revision I wanted to point out). Maybe you meant well and wanted to complement everything for easier navigation, but in my opinion it's a sloppy job.

tl;dr: don't overuse links to other pages, especially in pages like Talk and Forum namespaces. Nikel Talk Vote! 13:27, October 23, 2014 (UTC)

A notice Edit

I'm sorry to have to do this, but you leave me no other choice. I feel like a formal warning is the only thing that is going to make you understand.

This edit is totally unacceptable. It could be construed as a personal attack against that user, and is a clear demonstration of a lack of good faith, which is precisely what you have been warned about countless times already. You claim to have "mastered" assumption of good faith (as if it's even possible to master something like that), but this and other examples clearly prove to myself and other administrators that you do not understand.

In addition, you have been warned before not to engage in speculation about sockpuppets, especially since you are not an administrator and are not in the position, official or otherwise, to do anything about them even if you discover them. To that end, and in response to the edit cited above, I have removed all references to ILoveSims5 and her suspected sock puppets and behavior from your sandbox page. If you add the information back, or engage in any further actions that demonstrate a lack of good faith, you risk being blocked from the wiki, having your rollback privileges revoked, or other actions as determined by the administrative team.

On behalf of myself and the other administrators, I will say this. We want you to be successful. We want you to learn from your mistakes and to grow as an editor. And if you do those things, you might be ready to become an administrator. But your actions now and in the past have demonstrated that you are unable to keep an open mind about things which you may not fully understand. You engage in behavior that is intended to emulate the perceived behavior of the administrators, yet you do not have a strong concept of why the administrators take the actions we do. You claim to understand the principle of Assume Good Faith, but your actions clearly show that your understanding of that concept is not adequate.

The best piece of advice I can give you is that you should never ever assume that you understand how or why something is the way it is. You should always keep an open mind and consider the possibility that you may be mistaken or that you are not understanding a particular issue or incident. It is the mark of the truly ignorant to assume that he knows everything. Or, to put it another way, "A fool thinks himself to be wise, but a wise man knows himself to be a fool."

Please open your mind to the possibility that you do not understand. Please allow yourself to learn. You cannot improve if you cannot learn.
