Just an observation from the last few posts in this thread — there's really a nice mix of demographics developing for the forum. The other site I moderate, a Diablo II forum, it's all guys. I mean ALL guys. There's not a hint of estrogen for miles in any direction. So, I can pretty much wear one hat that fits every situation. Here, there's more variety just given the game has broader appeal. I really like it.

Hey, the Kreathyr is back! ;D

Yup, and this time I'm not leaving until my new legacy is completed.
(and probably stay after that as well  ;))

Welcome to the forum Aria! I myself am an identical twin so your problem is not unknown to me :D
I thought you looked familiar, you're Bob Marley's brother right? ... Right?
Sure, he looks Swedish! ;)

Bob Marley could be from wherever he wished to come from.
The only problem would be that he would have been the only one to see it.

Well, he's such a good singer so he could just about be Swedish if he only wanted to. :)

True, just ask politely and he would have had his own country  8)

Kids today...You're three years younger than me, so perhaps he was before my time as well, but he's a very skilled singer and you have to have at least heard of him! I'm happy that noone here had taken Bob Marley as an avatar.

How many here are old enough to know that Bob Marley wasn't the original artist of that song?  :D

I thought he was the original artist. Marley wrote it and Eric Clapton did a cover version. Acording to Wikapedia, the Clapton version was released the year after Marley and the Wailers did it.
and yes, I'm old enough to remember singing to it as a teenager. (an old boyfriend was a fan of Marley)

Yeah, Pam, Marley did write that song. Clapton's version got a lot more airplay and I never realized that he wasn't the original artist for quite a few years simply because I never even heard the Marley version on the radio.

Hello....I am a newbie to this forum and to the Sims world.

I live in Ohio and I am a Mom of 4 sons ages between 25yrs to 15yrs. My boys are "gamers" and have been trying to make a "gamer" of me for many years. They have been trying to talk me into trying the Sims for a long time, knowing me as they do, they knew I would love it. So, they bought me the Sims 3 Holiday Collector's Edition and Guide Book for Christmas.

I really love the game and am having so much fun with it, even though I, like the many other Sims fans have to deal with the many glitches and bugs of the game.

I tried to find help through the main Sims site, and various other sites and I could not find the help I needed, and I was incredibly frustrated. I have posted questions at the main site at the beginning of the new year and have still not received any response. I felt "invisible", lost, hopeless, defeated and alone on that site. And then thankfully I found this forum. It literally has kept me from giving up on the game. I can not thank you ALL enough for this forum. It is a wonderful place to come and get help, or just read your stories and ideas, (very big sigh of relief). Every time I have posted a question, I get a response very quickly and get the help and encouragement I need. I can now enjoy my game experience much more knowing that when I get stuck, confused or just need some fresh ideas in creativity, or even a good laugh... I find it here. I especially appreciate the family/friendly environment and that it is upheld. Hopefully I will get to the point where I can give "back" to others when I get "seasoned" enough in the game.

Thanks again.....A ZILLION times over!

I had the same expierience - Getting Frustrated because no-one answers your questions on the actual Sims 3 site. I had a prob were my Posts would have been deleted for some reason and I had no Idea, I searched for them and everything but couldn't find them.

Anyway welcome to the Forum!  ;D

Sorry, but I can't help reading Cat Liver from that...

That was me thinking I know something that I don't.  Heh.  Bob Marley wasn't the first artist I heard record the song in the 1970s, so I thought I was smart.  Sorry!  :)

No biggie Pam. I wasn't even alive back then, so maybe I shouldn't play the smart kid. ;)

Hi, I'm Sarah and I've been a long time reader of the main site which I've found very useful, thank you :) I'm not actually on the official Sims forum because I spent a few weeks lurking on it, and it seems very...busy, which I guessed it would be, but a lot of the interesting things seem to get squeezed out by fluff and if you find something useful on there, a day later its been swamped beneath a lot of very pointless things! That said, that is how I found the site so my time lurking was clearly very successful.
The worst thing of it at the minute is that the computer I play TS3 on has packed up, and my brother (who is a computer genius but very busy) hasn't had a chance to look at it to see how broken it is. And bless my laptop, 7 years old and not even able to play TS2 (it crashes...I tried it a long time ago!). I've been playing The Sims since it first came out, and I've bought all the expansion packs apart from TS2:Apartment, and I've never been fussed on Stuff packs. And since I can't play TS3 at the moment, I've not bought World Adventures, yet. I'm going to, but I think having it and not being able to play it would send me insane. I'm already having Sims withdrawal symptoms!
I guess if you wanted to know anything about me, just ask away :) I don't bite.
Grr Argh!
