Hi there,

I'm really lousy at introductions so I'll keep it brief.

I've been lurking for a couple of months now, ever since I got Sims3. I now have the Pets and Supernatural EPs and am mildly obsessed with the game.
As for my personality, I'm 26, animal-mad and have a slightly warped sense of humour. I live in South Africa; read a lot, write a lot more, and have a wide range of hobbies from gardening to embroidery and of course, the Sims.

I love this site and Carl's guide, and have used both extensively since I got the game.

I do have one question though. I've looked over the forum for a space where people can post their challenge ideas, and either I've missed it or it's not allowed? I don't want to post it if it's not allowed, nor do I wish to make work for the moderators by posting it in the wrong place if it is allowed. Would someone be able to let me know where I can post my idea or if it's not allowed, who I can PM about maybe getting it posted somewhere?

Thanks very much and I look forward to getting more involved in the sims community.  :)

Hi everybody!

@Rhapsody (awesome name, by the way):

If you want to suggest a challenge for the official tournament, PM Challenge Coordinator Metropolis Man. If you want to propose a Project, then PM Metropolis Man and Pam. :)

Wonderful! Thank you very much, Seabody.  I'll do that as soon as I've finished writing it up properly.  ;D

I've been lurking a long time, but I think the time is right for an introduction. I've used the site and forums extensively for information over time, and I'm looking forward to contributing to one of the more civil forums I've found on the internet!

I have been playing the Sims since the original came out. It's pretty much my only casual gaming outlet. I enjoy building and playing informal legacies, although I prefer not to worry too much about rules and have yet to complete any of the challenges. I've actually finished entries for a few of the building contests, but I've been too shy to actually submit them. Baby steps, right?

In real life, I'm a graduate student and a work-at-home parent. As my name implies, I am a vegan. I am not, however, a robot. :)

I too, have been lurking since I got my game a couple months ago.
I have been playing since the first one but it was only with the second one that I really 'got' it and got serious.
I'm not sure how I feel about the online aspect to the game, unlike most people I live way out in the country and my internet is definitely slower than in-town DSL and these patches and stuff sometimes wreak havoc. Like today, I am installing a patch for the third time...it takes over an hour to download and if I don't download it, the computer thinks I am trying to do something I shouldn't. It's frustrating. But I do love the game and can play hours at a time. I'm getting Supernatural today and soooo excited!
I have a kind of unique situation in which I am sort of stuck way out here by myself for the majority of my time so my online community is my social life. Everyone here seems awesome! Thanks for having me!

Welcome to the forum roboveg! Don't be scared to submit your entries, the only way you can win, is by trying.  :)
Welcome to the forum mermaidgirl47! I too lurked on the forum until I finally joined.  :D

Welcome to this Forum, Mermaidgirl47. I live in a 'forgotten' patch of the land, too. This sounds so familiar to me. If anything, it helps to play off-line. Still, I'm sure, that you will have a great time here, and come to love this community as much as I have.  :D

Hi everyone!

I've been lurking for a while. Bad experiences with forums in the past means I don't normally participate, but you all seem so lovely I had to say hello.
I've played Sims, Sims 2, and now Sims 3, though I really only started with Sims 2. I really love the escapism that the Sims offer. Well, that and playing decorator :-D

I want to thank everyone for all the work on this site. If I'm ever stuck, this is always my first port of call. I look forward to getting to know everyone!

Seems like I missed this thread!

Hello to all you lovely simmers!

Ok, I'm Velocity and I'm a 22 year old Computer Science undergraduate. Yes, a nerd lady.

I'm not that much into gaming, actually the Sims 3 is the only game i play and that is also because of the story-telling aspect.To be honest, I just don't understand any other video games. My boyfriend is a huge gamer and I have yet to figure out what's so interesting in Halo etc etc etc LOL!

I'm a wanna-be-writer and currently working on my first ever Sims 3 story, Six at Sunset. The thread is over here at the Miscellaneous forum: http://www.carls-sims-3-guide.com/forum/index.php/topic,12443.0.html. I'm a huge reader and more often than not, you may find a character referring to a book they've read LOL!

I am not so good at building, though I really love furnishing and sim creation. At times, I've spent hours just trying to find the perfect CC!

So, hope to see more of all of you over here :)!

Thanks, SimBlip! It's good to know I'm not alone...
I do play some offline but I like to send and receive gifts too! I kind of split it...depending on what my Sims are up to! Those rascals!

Hey all!

I am new to the forum posting wise. I have been on looking at guides and help when I needed it :) Just never have posted yet. I have been on other forums that have to do with horses (I own a horse in real life) but never one for sims! I have played the sims for a long time then quit in high school and started back when Sims 3 Pets came out! Always looking for friendly people to talk to and learn new things from!

Thank you for making such a nice community for simmers!!

Welcome, Kodachrome!
I don't have pets installed, but can imagine how exciting the existence of horses (and unicorns!) in the Sims 3 must be for you! Hope you have a wonderful time here. :)

Well, I've been lurking the site here for almost a year, and I suppose I should introduce myself. Hi, all!

Just wanted to let you all know you run a fantastic site here and I check the new content and forums every day. After my second read through of the Dreamweaver Immortal Dynasty, I've decided to try my run at an Immortal Dynasty myself. Thanks for all the tips and tricks, especially from Pam and Ratchie!
