  • Yard Sale 2014 is classed as a promotional, even though it isn't promoting an episode, I have posted on the Template talk page, but I doesn't seem like anyone ever checks it. As well as this, Springfield Heights Expansion (chapter two) is classed as an expansion, when it isn't, it's just a generic content up date. Also, "Promotion" and "Promotional" mean the same thing, so why do both exist?

    • There is quiet a difference between events (minor ones) and promotions. Events always come with new content and questline(s). Promotions in contrast mostly bring back old content, with one or two new items at most. They are rather like sales where items aren't necessarily cheaper...

      However I see the difficulty of the similar names and also the problem that they aren't 100% classifiable as one or another in some cases.

      The game treats those as promotions, not events.

      Well, if the game does so, then only because of the fact that the word "promotion" was used in the store-category-title for a few of them. "event" in contrast is never used for Events. So the page could also be called "End of School Promotion Event", "Oktoberfest Promotion! Event",...

      Honestly I'm not sure about this one, neither solution seems optimal to me.

      Not always. From the 6 we currently have in there, the Stonecutters Black Market Sale was specifically called Sale, and the Big Game Supplies 2016 Promotion store name did not include the word promotion. The ones that were called promotions in the store were End of School Promotion 2015, Oktoberfest 2015 Promotion, and Black Friday 2015 Promotion; coincidentally all 3 involved rebate sales.

  • I was looking for this wiki for a long long time... Unfortunately I don't speak English very well, but I hope I will be useful here. For the moment I have to read a lot of documents ;-) Bye!

      I'm not sure what you mean?

      (edit) I looked into this and the comments you seem to be referring to are from 2014, so I don't see what the issue is here.

  • Hi,

    may I ask you why you removed the "Highlight" on my blog ? Blog that was made to help our members dealing with this specific act of the event. Blog that has been welcomed by everyone. Are you playing the game again so are aware of the big mess EA left us at this point of the event ? And since that blog has been made, the questions and complaints have been reduced by 80%.

    On the other side, are you still "enjoying" your new job ? Are you still working 80 hours/week ? ;o))

  • Hi again,

    I thought I should come back to you since it seems a little odd to me that you closed that thread without a word. If you don't want to give us these user-rights, just say so. I can't speak for FauxCerf, but personally, I would be fine with that too. Not hearing anything is what kind of hurts, and honestly I wouldn't have expected that.

    So I hope that you're still receiving E-Mails from your Message-Wall and that you will get back to us.
    Thanks!

    • None, bad english, I meant, NoWay had already get in touch with the Wiki's staff in order to have 3 other site related to TSTO but that was kinda "dead". He was able to do it but I'm sure it would have been easier with the bureaucrat rights. Anyways, he will be able to explain it better than me tomorrow when he'll see he's been promoted too ;o)) And that's only one exemple. To be honest, he's the man, I've really enough of my admin's rights ;o))

    • Oh, wow I forgot all about that, or I thought that I did it already. [...] But in any case you can have the bureaucrat rights

      Thanks for the promotion. And also sorry for the misunderstanding!

      I got promoted right after that trip and now I work like 90 hour weeks

      Congrats! But wow, 90 hours is really tough!

      What restrictions were there?

      Well, no "severe" restrictions.

      Now withh bureaucrat rights I can temporarily promote my bot each time it needs admin rights (e.g. when editing blog posts). I didn't feel 100% comfortable with it having permanent admin rights anyway. There has been a major security issue where most of the active accounts on one of the top wikis have been compromised and used to post spam and vandalism. All of that was caused by a single admin which got hacked. And bot edits won't show up neiter in Special:WikiActivity, nor in Special:Recentchanges and thus won't be seen immediately.

      It also might be useful to be able to name a few rollbacks in case we get more spam/vandalism again. It's been really quiet lately, but there has been way more, and FauxCerf and I really can't cover 24/7 all the time.

  • So, umm, haven't really been active on the Wiki over the past month, but I see you've logged in a couple of times since your last actual edit. Are you not going to be an active editor anymore? There's a lot of work to be done and could have really used your help. Still could use your help actually.
