Hello Everyone!
My name is Ashley, and I'm obsessed with all things Sims.
I've been simming since the very first sims game came out, got copies from our local library and I've been hooked ever since.
I'm a stay at home mom to an amazing three year old who is already loving watching mom play!
Last year my laptop that I used to play Sims 3 died, and my husband bought a Xbox so I started playing on Xbox.
I have every EP available for Xbox except GTW and Dine Out.
Looking forward to chatting with you guys.

Hello! My name is Rachael. I've loved all the Sims games, but lately, I've been getting back into 3, because World Adventures is my favorite EP of all time! Carl's Sims 3 Guide has been a godsend. I use the Sims 4 guide a lot, too! I look forward to talking to everyone about our favorite life simulator!

Hi there!

My name is Ari. I'm a newly minted elementary school teacher, and I've been an avid Sims player since the very beginning of The Sims 1! I'm a huge fan of the Legacy challenge- and I just started my very first legacy blog! Mostly as a way of keeping myself accountable to the rules and restrictions of the challenge and also just to practice using a blog and website tools while doing something I love!

If you want to check it out- find it at "viridivalues.weebly.com". Any and all comments or views would be greatly appreciated! I'll also be opening up a poll for voting soon!  ;)

Hi all! As you can see by my number of posts, I'm not actually new here, but, I've been AWOL off and on for the last year. I thought maybe it's time to introduce myself to the newbies of the Forum and remind the oldbies that I'm still here :-)

A friend introduced me to this Forum way back in 2012 (yup, that's why I have the year in my name lol) and I haven't regretted a day of my membership! This is one of the nicest Sims Forums out there (possibly THE nicest, but I'm trying to be diplomatic and tactful since I do belong to other nice Sims Forums as Ravenangel888 which is also my Origin name).

This place has it all, and a bag of chips too! Well, not a literal bag of chips, but... Where was I? Oh, yes. You will love this Forum as much as the rest of us do after being here for even the briefest amount of time. My advice: check out the stories if you want a nice relaxing time, and the challenges if relaxing just isn't your thing :-) the Tournaments and Contests will also kick your Simming into overdrive and have you achieving feats you didn't think were possible!

Okey dokie, I'm off to catch up on some stories ;-) see y'all around the Boards and Welcome to Carl's!!
because... Math *Pippin The Most Tenacious Simmer*

I can't ignore ALL of the voices in my head - Some of them actually make sense! *Blayzen*

Hello Simmers! My name is Liz and I've played Sims for more years than I can remember. I have been a lurker on these forums and spent lots of time reading the stories and challenges. I like to play the Drifter challenges and have made some attempts at Legacy challenges (I admire you simmers that are so creative with the stories!) I enjoy building and I plan on giving the building challenge a try. My Origin name is the same, and you can find some of my builds there. Thank you for such a great forum and guide!

Hi there!
I'm a long time sims 3 player and am thinking of making a legacy style story focused on my Blackmore family. I'm looking forward to getting to know the other players on here as well.

@SuperCoolRachael   
Welcome to the forum! Hope you enjoy your visits to the forum!

@aria92
Welcome to the forum. This is a very friendly and supportive forum community.
This thread is probably not the best place to publicize your blog, I'm afraid. All the writers and readers of legacy challenge stories are over on the Stories thread.

@Magpie2012
I'm obviously the wrong person to be welcoming you back to this forum. I hope life has been treating you well!

@LBelle2015
Howdy Liz! Welcome to the forum! Personally, I'm excited to hear that you're into multi-generational challenges (which I also love) and building challenges (erm, not my strong point but I still enjoy them a lot). I hope you're looking forward to Build Challenge #3 as much as everybody else is! :D

@Erosaf
Hello there! Best wishes on your upcoming Blackmore family story!

Hey all, I'm Mouse
I've been lurking here for a while. I can't run The Sims 3 on my potato and The Sims 4 feels lackluster to me, so the challenges have been a great help to keep the game interesting. I also love reading your stories, hopefully soon I'll be sharing my own

I am Jensaiu, I have been an avivid sims fan since 2002. When I first played it on the playstation 2. I just went wild and knew this was the game for me. But then when I discovered that it was on pc in 2009 that was right up my alley. I have been dedicated to the sims 2 since then. I have the sims 3 as well, but the sims 2 will always have my vote as the best game ever. ;D

Hi there, I'm WebbyMom - I think I was a member on this forum quite some time ago, but it must have been quite a looong time ago now, because I had to register again.  ;D

Just became a Patron, so figured I'd get back onto the forums as well to see what you all are up to. Just want to say a big thanks to Carl (and Pam) for having the guides sites over the years. I've had it bookmarked for-ev-er, I think, and refer to it often. Popped over to it today to see what you had so far for TS4 Seasons and decided not to ignore the "become a Patron" button this time. ;)

I've been simming since the day TS2 came out. My 4 kids have grown up around me playing sims and some have had their own dips into the simming universe, but none have stuck with it as intensely as I. LOL I'm now 52yo and re-excited about the franchise because of Season, I believe.

I've been a member of forums, a mod of forums, an owner of forums, and an owner of several websites dedicated to the game over the years. "The Sims Daily" is the last forum I owned/co-owned. We've just closed down last month, but have started a Discord channel.  :D Just so we can stay in touch. I think it's amazing how a game can bring folks together.

Anyway, enough about me - thanks again for all the hard work you put into the guides and the site, Carl! I've sure always appreciated it immensely!

Hi guys.  Not a newbie exactly.  I've been with this forum since it started.  Due to definitely unforseen and very traumatic RL events I've been away from the forum and from playing Sims and my dynasty stories for over two years.  Wow!  Hadn't realized it was that long.  I've pretty much forgotten all I ever knew about Sims, and with so many changes over that time span I've a lot of catching up to do.  Two of my stories are in the graveyard and I'm not sure I'll pick up on them or not.  So for now, good to see all of you as I relearn Sims4 and this forum.  Cyber hugs from Joria.

Welcome back, Joria. I hope whatever kept you away was resolved in a positive manner. Cheers!

Howdy @mousef  and welcome to the forum!
Looking forward to your next story!

Welcome to forum @Jensaiu
Hope you enjoy your time spent on the forum. It's a very friendly community. :D

Wow @WebbyMom ! You've been so involved in simming in various ways.
Your message seems mostly directed at @Carl so I'll just extend my welcome to the forum, hehe.
Also, you might find some useful information here on forum threads that don't necessarily make it to the guide pages. ;-)

Welcome back @Joria ! <3
You have been deeply missed, you know!
  Glad to be back but am having fits relearning EVERYTHING!  I'm such a retro-noob!  How do you put things like salons on lots, or any Maxis buildings on lots?  Can't remember.  At least I found I can still build!

@MarianT :  Glad to be back.  Working with a new Sim to relearn all the ropes and the new things I missed but did discover I can still build!  Yay!  Rusty, not as good as before, but hey, we toddlers have to learn to walk before we run, right?  Catching up reading everyone's stories.  I sure missed all you guys.
