Hi @MurphyLee! I'm no one special on the forum but like you I've played all the sim games from Simcity 2000 (even a little bit of the classic one from 1989 which gives way too much info on my oldness) and the first Sims in 2000. I miss a good bit about the quirkiness of the original iterations of the franchise, though the newer ones are good too, there is just something to be said about; robot maids and skeleton maids and magic cauldrons and how ecstatic everyone was when children could actually be reproduced for the first time in game. Building snowy mountainous vacation destinations and massive stores that you could run with everything imaginable for sell, including shelves and lights on the wall. Dying over and over because your sim was just too sad to eat and being irritated by the social bunny and streaking naked at college. Oh, just so much nostalgia from my younger years! ;D

Anyways, welcome to the forum and hope you check out the challenges they're pretty fun!

Thanks for the kind welcome, @oshizu  :) I would like to share my dynasty story here at some point. Maybe after I complete it? (I'm about halfway through right now.) I don't know how that will work, though, as it's on a separate blog that I made. Could I just make a post linking to it or something?

Sorry for the double post (that's a thing, right?), but I have a general question regarding the forum. In reading a lot of challenge stories and dynasties from the last several years, I've noticed that a lot of them include Photobucket images that don't show up for me (they say something like "3rd party hosting has been temporarily disabled"). Is this the case for everyone? Does it have something to do with the ridiculously expensive Photobucket premium plan I read about somewhere?

@amaranthin
Yes, that's correct about the non-displaying Photobucket images. I've read about a Google Chrome addon that allows one to view even Photobucket images such as those, but I've never tried it.
It's not a problem with this forum, but an issue of Photobucket links severing its image links. Some forum members have switched to another image hosting server and painstakingly reuploaded all of their image links. Some have not.

@oshizu Thank you for the fast reply! That's good to know about Photobucket. Suspicions confirmed (sigh).

Hi I'm Paul. It's been quite a time since I last played Sims (and it was Sims 2 mostly). When Sims 3 appeared I didn't have time for games and now I got a fit of nostalgia and feel like playing Sims 4. Hope it will be much fun! I came here for insights and useful tips, god knows I will need it :D Thanks for having me, really looking forward to great time here

Hello all,
I'm Forrest and I've been Simming for a long time, but only recently decided to try to get involved in the Sim community. I'm an awkward potatoe though, so I hope this works out for me haha ~  :)

Welcome back then @Remonalynn  :)

Pam is no longer very active so it probably was MrsFlynn that found your 'lost' post and redirected it.

Hi people! As you can tell my by username, my name is Katie and I am indeed rather lazy. I love to play The Sims, and this site's guides have been a huge help. I've been using this site for a while and have decided to join the forums. I plan on doing a 10-gen townie dynasty with Brant Hecking soon, and I might share it, and I'll definitely post the results at least. I'm very gay so expect any stories I share to be full of lesbians. Gender customization is my best friend and I love it. I'll likely mostly post TS4 stuff until I get a new external hard drive, since the full package of TS3 doesn't fit on my laptop.

Don't worry, I am. I'm typing it as I play, which I'm doing as we speak. Brant just got pregnant.

Hi everyone, my name is Superman's and I just joined the forums today. I have been playing Sims 3 off and on since 2009 and Carl's Guide has really helped out. I really love reading stories on here. I do have one question, how do you edit your profile?

New members need to have 5 posts before they can edited their profile, this is to help curb spamming. The Profile option will not show up until a new member has 5 posts.
