Interesting! However, among the listed skills allowed, there are a few that will give you WAY much more simoleons than the other ones, so the rest of these skills most likely won't ever be chosen. And everyone who's not a total newbie knows what these skills are... (IMHO)
Maybe we should think about some additional rules regarding the usage of skills?

That's okay.

For example, we could divide these skills/careers between our two sims. One would be an "introverted artist" who does stuff alone quietly (paints, writes, takes photos, does woodworking), and the other one would be an "extraverted one" who shows what he/she does to other sims (acts, performs comedy routines, plays instruments, sings).

I really like that idea. I'll tweak the rules a bit. Thanks, Nikitachi. It would avoid both Sims doing exactly the same thing.

Is there any particular reason why freelance careers are not allowed.

Just forgot about it honestly. The Writer and Painter one would be the only related freelance careers, right? Programming is not related.

Programming doesn't give me artistic vibes. I was trying to work out if there was a strategic reason why we could not free lance Haha. I had assumed knitting was out because we did a knitting challenge last year.

Retail stores, Plopsy, and flea market tables are allowed as long as items sold are products of allowed skills.

I dare to suggest a restriction here - the whole selling process of items via these three means must be done entirely by the sim who made the item. No help of other sim/hired personnel.

Also, what about Rally the Troops/Wishing Well this time? I'd ban these two again (mwahaha, the harder the better).

Along these same lines, I suggest that the Potion of Plentiful Needs and Copypasto also be banned.
