when your tutorial is posted in the tutorials forum - which will happen after you post in CI asking us to move it? Of course, if you were wanting the Instructor achievement then pointing to wiki contributions in a "please can I have my wiki achievement" thread is a somewhat oblique approach.
You need to have more than a page of moving about to qualify for the Achievement. Build up a body of work. Quality work that we don't have to consistently correct or nuke, consistently over a period of time. That follows our formatting guidelines, naming conventions, etc.
But make sure it is not on already existing subjects first, OK? The subject of your article already exists:
- Game Help:Getting Custom Content to Show Upwiki
- Game Help:Finding Problem Custom Contentwiki
Perhaps, you could start off simpler than making new pages - like correcting typos or grammar. Not to discourage or anything, but have a lay of the land before you jump into the bog, huh? Read Site Rules, for instance. I see you're a fairly new addition to our community here.
Not complying with Site Policies and not listening to Staff directions is the first thing to bring you under our radar - you were already given a warning about your signature. Do something about it, please. Or the something will be done for you.
Which still violates Site Policy, I might add. Plus all the multiple-postings. You're not endearing yourself to Staff my dear, and we're getting annoyed cleaning up after your messes! Shape up! Or you'll find your posting privileges revoked until you have a chance to read Rules and show that you understand them by following them! Good golly! Is it Let Your Toddlers Out Day today?
I'm not sure what counts as enough, but I've almost finished checking the Animals section in the Sims 2 Content List for broken links and adding new things. When I finish that I plan on keeping going, so no worries if I haven't done enough yet, I'll be back :-) I intend to help with the new Posebox Database for Sims 2 as well - it'll be nice to have something like that on the Wiki :-)
I've been adding links to the Sims 2 Fansites section. Here's the page. Hopefully more people come to add their links to that list. There's probably several hundreds more links floating around the Internet still active, but unheard of.
Perhaps to get the links section noticed more, there should be a Fansites section under the "Site" category, to just straight to the Sims 2 and Sims 3 links. Prior to the staff announcing that certain Wikipages were neglected, I never knew there was a links section.
I've gone completely over the TS3 Create a Sim page and removed all dead links, fixed a few dead ones that I knew where to redirect to, added several new links, and added a Glasses sub-category under Accessories (which I was surprised to find didn't already exist!) and filled it with links to all of MTS's glasses content: http://simswiki.info/wiki.php?title...ions/EsmeraldaF
ETA: Added a few more sub-categories to the Create a Sim page: four new Accessories sub-categories: 'Bracelets and Watches', 'Earrings', 'Gloves and Socks', and 'Rings', and one new sub-category under Miscellaneous, 'Wings', and started populating them all with numerous MTS creators' content.
ETA #2: Thank you for the wiki achievement! I'll try to populate the Create a Sim page with more new links when I get time, but they will mainly be MTS ones, since the requirement is for only quality content and we know everything here is quality, but I'm not knowledgeable enough about quality picks from other sites because I rarely use anyone else's cc aside from my own, and what cc I do use is mainly from here. But at least the page is now cleaned up and organised, so that other contributors can add off-site stuff that they know is good.
laura, can I suggest that instead of having a separate page for poses by creator, you use a sortable table so that viewers can sort by creator using the header buttons? It would mean half as many pages to maintain and update.
