Welcome Sarah!  We've been very careful about not allowing those fluff posts on our forum here for the very reasons you mention.  We want to have a helpful forum that focuses on the members and what they need to enjoy the game more.  I'm glad to hear that our efforts have been noticed!  I hope you get to playing Sims 3 soon so you can join in the fun with us!

If my computer can be fixed, rather than having to splash out (and possibly wait for it to be delivered) on a new one, I'd rather do that! And it also means there's a strong chance I won't lose the family I'd been playing. I find it easier to become more attached to the Sims in TS3 than any other Sims game, I think it's just because there's so much to do!
Until then, I'll just have to use everyone here to get my Sims fix lol.
Thank you for the welcomes :)
Grr Argh!

I'm quite sure he was actually...
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. ;)

You need to make a Bob Marley forum.

Hi, you can call me Grandpa if you want. I really am a grandpa of 12.   ;D As to the Muleskinner part of my name, well that's a whole other story. I'll share it if anybody is interested.

I've been playing Sims since the original. Having all EP/SP for The Sims, TS2 and TS3 thus far. I started this as a hobby and a way to spend time with my grandkids. They got me hooked.

This site is the best I've seen. I've been lurking for a while, and have gathered a bunch of information for the TS3 game. This site picks up where the 'Official Prima Guides' fall short. I don't mean to cut Prima short, I'm sure it's as good as they can make it.

Anyway, I extend a personal BIG thank you to Carl, and a hearty hello to all forum contributers and users.

Just call me grandpa!  ::)

Hi Grandpa! Another male on the forum AND someone who's actually older than me! I wasn't sure if both was possible to have happen in the same day, but it is.

Thanks for the nice words too. All the staff work very hard to make this the best site we can.

Thanks Metropolis Man and Pam. Your comments are appreciated. I'm glad to have found this site.

Now, Pamela from Texas, I was raised to be polite and never ask ladies age, but how can you ever legitimately challenge 60 vs N/A. LOL!!!  ::)

Excellent point, Grandpa!  I'm proud to say that I had my 50th birthday two weeks ago.  :D

I'll be 47 later this year. My age has never bothered me, but I did feel a bit old this week... the twinkids are now considered seniors at school, my youngest started high school and my grand daughter started school - all that in the space of 2 3 days!

Well, nobody has asked it yet, so... How did you get the name Muleskinner?
