I got the impression they were more trouble than they were worth,  what with rubbish (OK 'garbage'  if you don't speak English properly  ;D) being thrown around and having relationships with your partner! :D

Hi Cassi and welcome to the forums. Unfortunately, this is the second time in an hour I've needed to step in and ask you to edit your post. Revealing your sexual preferences has absolutely no place on this forum. Remove that from your post please. Thank you.

(Again, I waited for you to make the move, but lost patience. Cassi, this is a family friendly forum, so please keep that in mind with your future posts)

Hi everyone.

   I'm Tealeaf, long time sim player and first time poster.  /waves!  I'm 45, female, and married forever.  I'm hoping that I can fit in with this online community of people who like Simming as much as me.
I'm Tealeaf, and I approve of this message.

Hello :)

I am Kauri The Sim, otherwise known as Kauri, pronounced Corey. Most people read it wrong, just think of an apple CORE - (KAUR) and go Eeeeeeeeeeee!

I've read this website for a while now and love it! I also end up reading the same things millions of times over because I seem to forget things (I think I have short term memory loss) ;) .

My Sims isn't even working. so I haven't got to actually play it yet (my computer is evil).

I can't think of much else to say, so bye!

Hi, I'm Samoht04

You can probably guess that's my name backwards (Thomas).

I love the sims. I started with Sims 2, got all the expansion packs and now have Sims 3 with the World Adventures on the way.

I looked around on here and think it's much better than the Sims 3 forums because I've posted on there before and never got answers, but I haven't seen a single persons question not answered apart from the new ones. The Guide is also really usefull!

I have a feeling I'm gonna be around here for some time, so I should introduce myself.
I'm Norma, but have been using Twinmum as a screen name since we first got the internet connected (back then, my twins were babies and being the mother of twins pretty much defined who I was. Now I'm the mother of 4, grandmother to one, a keen miniaturist, huge Stephen King fan (even helped write a book about his work) and of course a sim fan. I've always liked sim type games.. Sim City, Sim Tower, Sim Farm etc... I bought the original Sims just after it was released and collected all the EP's, then Sims 2 came out and I started over. I think there was only one stuff pack that I didn't get for the game (Sims 2 is still on this older computer and is still played on a regular basis by my daughters). When Sims 3 was advertised I blatently refused to be suckered into starting all over again. But of course I think that was only because my aging computer would have had a heart attack trying to run it. I think I bought TS3 2 days after we bought the new computer lol. Hubby bought WA for me a few weeks ago but wouldn't let me have it till Christmas and I'm loving it.
I love building houses in the game and I always play a few sims who don't work, but support themselves through gardening and self employment ( I loved Open for Business in TS2), so I'm really enjoying WA. My current family is a couple - She is a writer and photographer who travels. He stays at home and tends the garden and makes nectar. They have just had their first child, so he also is Mister Mum while she travels.

At the moment, I can't play Sims 3 too often.... school holidays have only just begun here in Australia and 2 of my daughters have just discovered Sims 3 (they have been playing Sims 2 for ages) So untill school goes back at the end of January, the 3 of us have to fight it out as to who gets the good computer! So I spend a lot of time at the moment reading forums on this computer lol

Hi Norma.

I love Stephen King too, especially the older stuff. :)

Maybe you'll get some ideas for when you get the computer to yourself again. And you should read some of the walkthroughs in the guide, they're fun.

Hi Rad, welcome.  I thought I recognised the name, I've been following your Lazarus story and occasionally posting on the Apocalypse thread on the official site.  Hope you enjoy your time here, I've found the forum team and members a great bunch.

Hi everyone,  :D

I've been lurking on this website for the past month, ever since I found Carl's awesome guide through Snootysims.  So, I have finally decided to join and start participating on the forums--mostly because you all seem like a great group of people!   ;D

I used the same user ID as I have on the official forums: Mistletoe143.  I used to play Sims 2 with all the expansions and stuff packs, but now, I am a Sims 3 fan these days.  I played Sims 3 a lot when it first debuted, but I only recently got back into the game with the WA expansion.  It's been great and I can't wait to see how the game develops in the future.

Anyways, on a final "personal" note, I am single female player, in my early thirties, and I live in Southern California.  I am blessed to have a wonderful job working for a local university.  And I love Mexican food and my mom's Filipino home cooking.  Take care, everyone.   ;)

Lol yeah, I've noticed a lot of lurkers lately. Glad you guys decided to join us. I'm also a King fan, but maybe not as hardcore as some. The Dark Tower was great, and Bag of Bones and Rose Madder are both on my all-time favorite books list.

Hi I am fairly new to the site, and have to say it is so far the best forum I've found.  I have been playing sims since it first came out then went to SIMS 2 and now SIMS 3.  I really enjoy this site and many times will have the site up as I am playing and go back and forth.

Hi everybody! I'm Swede1992.

My real name's actually Ivar and have also been around this site for quite a while. I don't really know what's with me, but I've always liked strategy games. My favourite games are all Sid Meier's Civilization series (except the first one (I'm way too young), but including Alpha Centauri for those that know about it), SimCity series (especially 2000), Spore with GA, Empire: total war and of course a long-term Sims fan of all Sims games from the very first time Sims 1 came out.

Fun fact: I am very likely to be the biggest Simpsons nerd in the history of humankind. Noone except my stupid twinbrother have ever beaten me in a Simpsons quiz, no matter how irrelevant and stupid the information may be. :P

Love the guide and finally thought I maybe could give some pointers here and there!

Maybe because they have "Sim" in their name? ;D

um, hi!

i'm 28, married with 3 cats and our first kid on the way.

living in virginia, usa.

never played sims 1 or 2, but when my wife bought 3 with birthday money, i started in on it.

i like to do quirky things with the game. 

my current writer sim lives in a 6x6 all-windowed room with no lights at the top of a 4-story square-helix stair, for instance.

i made an insane sim in a 5x5 3-room studio where all items/walls were decorated in black vinyl and different colored lighting/flooring for each room.  really interesting reflected coloring off the black vinyl walls, there!  there was room for a bed, shower, toilet (replaced by bookcase once i had steel bladder), countertop, stove, fridge, stereo, mirror, desk w/computer, and body sculptor in the corner by the door.  so only 7 floor tiles traversable, including the one needed for the door.

anyway, thanks SO MUCH, carl, for the guides!  and i look forward to sharing ideas with all of you!

Another guy! Group hug with Carl!

Eftyen, I just wanted to say thanks again for your feedback on the proposed ranking titles. I've been giving it a lot of thought in the last couple of days and will share my thoughts soon.

Welcome to the forum Eftyen!

That little house of yours became more and more complicated for me. Think, my trouble is that I build like 3 guest rooms in my ultra-mega mansion just in case. :)
