Default Rubrics Edits Thread
Why
If a moderator should need to edit a rubric then they can do so by clicking the edit rubric link from the moderation tab in a download. As the rubrics are very new there is indeed a possibility that the rubric maybe does not cover what it needs to cover and moderators are empowered to change the rubrics text to deal with that. However, it is important that all creators know if a rubric has been changed or added and our reason why.

How
Edit the rubric then post a reply to this topic

Post Layout
Add a link to the changed rubric and a quick explanation of the thing you added/altered.

Important rubrics must not be changed or added without discussion in chat first; if an additional Rubric is not covered in the Guidelines then Guidelines must also be edited in order to preserve a 1 to 1 match of guidelines to rubrics.
We cannot add a guideline and apply it retrospectively; we may add the Guideline for future uploads, but it cannot be applied to those uploads in queue that existed before the change.

Edited Rubric: TS2 Sims: Screenshots|5|In-Game

Change made/Reason: Added option: 4:All of the required screenshots are taken in-game, rather than in Create-a-Sim, though some or all are taken outside. That's okay, but pics in a well-lit interior room usually have better lighting.

ETA: Also added tutorial links (to my tutorial and Ari's on face sculpting) to the TS3 Sims Uniqueness rubrics.

ETA: Changed the 1 star to 2 star for TS3 Objects, patch level since it's a fairly minor thing and needs to be approvable. Also moved that item from Quality to Information as 2 star is not approvable for quality, and it's info they're providing, not a quality concern really.

ADDED Rubric: Special|6|Not Completed Requested Changes

Change made/Reason : Added a rubric for failure to make some/all/any of the changes. No bears were harmed in the making of this rubric.

EDIT: as this was a special rubric all rubrics first posts were edited. Yes, all of them. I hope.
