Hello :)
Looking forward to a Sweet SIMtember? I know I am!!!

Sweet SIMtember? What’s that?
I’m glad you asked! It’s a Sims 3 only homemade gift exchange and is CC Free!

Interested? SIMTASTIC!!!
Please read on …

A warm thank you goes to aricarai for her help (again!) because A-Squared simply wouldn’t be the same without her!!!

This is a SECRET EXCHANGE.
Please do not reveal your Buddy until the gifting period.
It’s a lot of fun wondering who has whom and what they are making!

Certain communication will only be done via private messages so each Buddy will need to check his/her Inbox on a regular basis.

New & Returning Buddies: Please read the accompanying posts as changes have been made since the last gift exchange!


Checklist:
Be a Buddy! Use the Buddy Form Letter found in the 4th post.
Chat & ask generic questions in the thread.
For specific questions concerning gifts & such, please send me a PM.
Follow the Rules (3rd post) & note the Important Dates (2nd post).
During gifting time, leave compliments & click the “Recommend It”/Like button.
Above all, Have FUN!!!

BIG Hugs!
Addy

    Please add to your calendars!!!

    Sign Ups: Sunday, August 6 to Saturday, August 19 ending at 6 pm (EST)
    Late Buddy Letters will not be accepted!

    Buddy Names: Each Buddy name will be sent via private message and should arrive by 6 pm (EST) on Sunday, August 20.

    ALL check-ins need to be done via the thread. Please do not send a private message or post on my Sims 3 My Page wall regarding check-ins.

    Check-in ONE: Before or by the end of Monday, August 21.
    This is to let me know that you’ve received your Buddy Name. If you haven’t received it and need it re-sent, please let me know ASAP!

    Check-in TWO: Before or by the end of Tuesday, August 29.
    This is just a general check-in to let me know that you’re doing okay.

    If you need help with anything or foresee any problems, then please do not hesitate to ask/mention this! General questions can be asked in the thread, but Buddy specific ones must be sent to me via private message.

    Check-in THREE: Before or by the end of Tuesday, September 12.
    Your gift should be almost ready to go at this time. A couple of touch-ups or a few more screenshots might be needed, but the gifts themselves should be done.

    VERY Important!!!: If you miss one of the above check-ins without letting me know beforehand, you will receive a private message. If you do not respond by the date listed in the private message, you will be eliminated from this gift exchange and won’t receive a gift. The person who had you will be asked if they would like to gift the Buddy you were assigned. The only exception against elimination is letting me know ahead of time that you will miss a deadline.

    GIFTING Time: Tuesday, September 19 through Sunday, September 24.
    If you are unable to gift during this time, let me know ASAP!

    1. This is a Sims 3 only gift exchange ~ NO Sims 4 gifts allowed.

    2. Join this gift exchange by posting a letter (see the next post for the form letter that must be used!).

    3. No custom content is allowed. All gifts will be custard checked, no exceptions.

    If you would like to know how to start a clean, no CC game please refer to the FAQs post.

    4. Keep your Buddy Name a secret once you receive your name via private message. No names will be posted to the Sims 3 My Pages nor will they be emailed.

    5. Follow the check-in dates!

    6. You must make at least one homemade gift for your Buddy.
    This is not something that is bought from the Sims 3 store.

    6b. Gift Guideline:
    *If making one gift, build something for your Buddy.
    *If making more than one gift (not required!), gift one a day maximum.
    One gift must be a build, but the rest can be additional builds and/or sims and/or pets.

    Six days of gifting means the maximum number of gifts that could be made is six.
    The focus should be on making thoughtful, useful gifts for your Buddy!

    7. When a gift is being given, please post a message in the main thread! This message must include your Buddy name, gift number (very helpful to Buddy & host!) as well as a link to the studio upload and screenshots showing off the gift.

    It’s best to put the screenshots inside of a spoiler tag to prevent page jumping as pictures load and to help with page loading times.

    The way it works looks like this:
    [ spoiler ] the pictures go here [ /spoiler ]
    Remember to remove the spaces before and after each bracket!

    It should look like this in a post:
    Pictures go HERE

    8. You must gift and be gifted. This is a gift exchange and every Buddy will receive a homemade gift.

    9. Please remember that Buddy Letters give suggestions for gift-making and are not a checklist of what will be received during gifting time.

    10. No rude or mean behavior will be tolerated. If seen, I will remove you at my discretion. We are here to have fun and enjoy one another’s company!

    11. Do not sign up if you can’t follow through! Pay careful attention to rules 12 and 16!!!

    12. If anything comes up (ex: personal, computer problems, etc.), please let me know ASAP so arrangements can be made and your Buddy gets a gift. This gift does not exempt you from your requirement of making at least one homemade gift. Depending upon the circumstances, you might or might not be allowed to participate in the next gift exchange.

    13. If you get a new store item or addition to your game, please edit your Buddy letter and post in the thread that you have made changes. Those items might or might not be used in your gift, but the more details you provide will help the gift become truly personalized!

    14. Please check the main thread often in case there is anything you need to know or to see if your Buddy has posted a gift for you!

    15. If quoting, please remove the image before commenting.

    16. If you had signed up for a previous gift exchange and didn’t give a homemade gift, you will not be paired up in this exchange. Sorry, no exceptions!

    17. If you download or add a gift (any gift!) to your favorites list, please press Recommend It.

    18. Each Buddy took time and effort to make their gift so please take the time to compliment their creations. Your kind words are a gift to them!

    19. Have fun!!! Try making something that is new-to-you and you’ll discover that you’re better at it than you think you are.

    Please use this form! It is a guide for giving your Buddy as much information as possible because only you can help them make something that you would enjoy having in your game. Be sure to include any additional information that you think would be fun to share or would help them get to know you a little bit better.

    The more details, the better!!!

    Remember, this is a guide and not a step-by-step wishlist. You might or might not get something that is mentioned here.

    Your Buddy is looking forward to creating something truly unique for you!


    Buddy Letter form:
    Username:

    Link to your Sims 3 My Page: (This is to help me when Buddy pairings are being made, especially if I don’t know you very well. If you’d rather not put your link here, please send me a PM with this information)

    I have installed the following Expansion Packs:

    I have installed the following Stuff Packs:

    I own the following Store Content:

    I own the following EA-made Worlds: (Please note that others might not feel comfortable using a custom world so it would be beneficial to provide your Buddy with a list of only those made by EA)

    Some of my favorite colors are:

    I really don’t like this color:

    I love to use items from this set:

    I prefer to play in this EA-made World:

    I enjoy this style of build the most: (Example: Victorian)

    I really don’t want this in my game:

    I would or would not like lots in the following sizes: (If you’re a fan of tiny lots then here is a great place to mention that! If larger lots make your game lag while loading them, mention that too!)

    I want/don’t want berry sims:

    I want/don’t want occult sims: (Be sure to specifically list those that you are fine with or mention which ones you don’t want to see in your game!)

    I want/don’t want pets in the household: (Like cats more than dogs? Like bundles of cute puppies over horses? Don’t want any of them? Mention it!)

    Do you want your sims and/or pets skilled up for you? If so, how much? (Example: A couple of points, but not maxed out)

    Are there certain skills you want skilled because you really like having them ready when you start with a new sim or household? (Example: A few points in Cooking would be nice so sims don’t burn the waffles and can make more than a mean bowl of cereal!)

    Are there particular skill items that you really like having in a build? (Example: I love having sims that can cook, garden, paint and write so having those skills would be awe-sim!)

    Other: (Describe here anything that you’d really like that might or might not have been previously mentioned!)


    This text is to certify that I have read the posts and will follow the rules for participation as well as pay attention to important dates.
    ~ end of form ~


    If you’re having trouble figuring out what to say in your letter, it might help to visit the previous gift exchange (link found in the first post!) for ideas on what others have said in the past.

    Feel free to add to the form! The more your Buddy knows, the better suited your gift will be.

    Above all, have FUN!!!

    What is a homemade gift exchange?
    Each participant (Buddy) writes a letter mentioning things they would like or not like to have in their game ~ each Buddy then gets paired with another Buddy and secretly makes a gift for him/her (this can be a build, pet or sim) ~ during gifting time, the Buddy reveals themselves and shares their gift for their special someone.

    What is a homemade gift?
    Something that is created while in-game and not purchased from the Sims 3 store is a homemade gift. A residential or community lot counts. A sim or pet needs more than simply being created in CAS, they should be taken in-game and given a bit of personality. Giving them a few skill points and/or place things in their personal inventory are just a couple of suggestions you might want to consider.

    How do I start a clean, no CC game?
    1. Rename your “The Sims 3” folder to something else. I often use “The Sims 3 old”.
    2. Start the game. Since it can’t find the folder, it will proceed to make a brand new one and that will be have the factory default settings. It doesn’t contain CC, mods or Sims 3 store content.
    3. Exit the game. Your folder will have the new folder labeled “The Sims 3”.
    4. Add whatever Sims 3 store content you’d like to use in the gift for your Buddy.
    5. Unless you’re familiar with mods and whether they create custom content, it might be best to not use them.

    How do I post an image?
    Above the “Leave a Comment” box is a toolbar with formatting options. The one that looks like a piece of paper with a folded corner is used to post an image. Move your mouse cursor over it and the message shows “Attach image/file”. Click on it and paste or type your image link location in the box. Image should be seen when “Preview” button is pressed.

    How do I post a link?
    Above the “Leave a Comment” box is a toolbar with formatting options. The one that looks like two interlocking chains in a link is used to post a link. Move your mouse cursor over it and the message shows “Url”. Click on it and paste or type your url location in the box. Press the “ok” button. Link should be seen when “Preview” button is pressed.

    If you want the link title to be other than the link address, type in your changes to the wording that is located before [*/url] <= Note: There isn’t an asterisk in the line of code, just in this example to keep the example from showing up oddly

    Is CAP custom content?
    Looking over previous gift exchanges, this little nugget was discovered. TnT_Terry wrote, “CAP is NOT considered CC at all (it's an EA/Sims 3 program), but will definitely show separately in custard. Most importantly, when using patterns on any lot/sim/object it is always best to link to every pattern used because they don't always transfer with upload.”

    However, please note that there are Buddies who don’t want anything that shows up separately in custard so it is probably best not to include them.

    Hey heyyyyyy!!! Guess who's here!?


    Ok. I've read up on all the rules. I think this is doable for me. I just have to open my game (via the stoopid 1.69 patch) and make sure it WILL be stable enough.

    Ok Addy ..... SIGN ME UP!!!

    Oh btw .... HI ARI!!!!

    *******************************************

    I have a curious question regarding images. Since Photobucket has been "ripping" everyone's pictures out of the posts -- I've seen that some of *mine* are gone -- what you YOU suggesting they use? I'm assuming that the forums - even though they still have that image link - won't be able to use images straight from our computers?

    Hello & welcome back, @MsPrissy88 !!!
    So good to see YOU here :)

    Yes, I also got hit with the Photobucket "removal system".
    Hmm ...

    Screenshots can be uploaded to your studio (found via the media tab), right-click on image to grab the "copy image location" for the image icon box and you get ...
    screenshot_original.jpg

    Not sure why it gives a partial black border and any editing of images would have to be done elsewhere before uploading said images to the studio.

    I used Imgur to get the lovely banners that @aricarai made posted into the thread. Not the same as PB, but it got the job done.

    My legacy story is done over at Wordpress and has images (I use pages to create each chapter).

    People could also link to their albums or blogs and do a teaser picture or two in the thread if they find that none of the above (or other options!) suit their needs.

    Any other suggestions from SimFriends on this topic would be mighty welcome!!!

    Hope this helps.

    Sorry .... you totally lost me! HOW can images be uploaded to our studio? Are you talking about our Sims 3 studios? Cos, I've tried doing that. Don't work. I could try PB again - as a test - to see if they're still being the royal pain in everyone's but.t.

    And since I'm dirt poor, I would want something cheap and FREE. Otherwise... all everyone will see (from me) is just text.

    O M FRIGGING GAWWWWD!!! :s :s Photobucket is OUT. OF. THEIR. FRIGGING. MIND!


    Addy -- Ari .... I highly suggest that people NOT USE photobucket as their choice for images. (( mumbling words that cannot be used here )) IF they want their images to be seen - and they still want to use PB as their host - they will/would have to pay $400!! FOUR HUNDRED *FRIGGING* DOLLARS -- A YEAR!!!!! :s :s They can go you-know-what themselves.


    Great :s Now I have to try and dl EVERY SINGLE PICTURE I uploaded over there and figure out HOW to "cancel" my account. And then TRY TO FIND somewhere else. :s :s

    I adore these gift exchanges, with my health being unpredictable I can't commit to things with deadlines anymore. But I will be lurking and maybe stop in for some encouragement and leave recs on gifting day. I'm excited to see what everyone comes up with.

    To add to what MsPrissy mentioned, I made a tumblr just for the photohosting aspect of it, so far none of my tumblr pictures linked here have disappeared. You may want to create a simblr if you haven't already.

    Yes, please do drop in from time to time and comment on the lovely creations.

    I haven't used tumblr, but this sounds like it could be another good option. Thanks for sharing!

    THINGS TO TRY OUT TODAY:

    1) See if Sims 3 game is stable enough ... check!

    2) After logging in to Sims 3 site, see if you can log in to sims 3 launcher ... check!

    3) Go into last saved game and snap a picture ... check!

    4) Try uploading above picture to own studio ... CHECK!!!

    5) Click on test image to see if there is an URL to share ... DOUBLE CHECK!!!!

    Ok. Confused ... :s HOW can I get the test image I just snapped - and uploaded to my studio - to show up, instead of just the link???

    I mean, if you click on the link it will take you TO the pic.

    Waaaaaaait .... I found my mistake. doh! Let me try that again.

    screenshot_my_studio.jpg


    Edit: IT'S SMALL!!! W. T. H?!?? HOW is any one supposed to see WHAT this is?!

    **********************************

    I think I'm gonna use my own website to set up sneaky peeks and the like. At least that way, I know everyone will be able to see MY pics.

    @MsPrissy88 At the top of the comment bar, there is a little picture icon, paste the link address into the bar that shows up when you select it.

    Or you can just manually add [ img] and [ /img] around the link if you would prefer. (Without the space, I added it so the code would show up.) I hope this helps.

    Hi @MsPrissy88 - Just following on from the PB issues. I use imgur for any image that has a transparent background, but I use flickr for everything else. I haven't had any issues with either of them thus far. Fingers crossed!

    Some of my favorite colors are: Black, Purple, Red, Blue

    I really don’t like this color: Yellow

    I enjoy this style of build the most: (Example: Victorian) Victorian, Gothic, anything Old, Farms

    I really don’t want this in my game: Can't think of anything.

    I would or would not like lots in the following sizes: (If you’re a fan of tiny lots then here is a great place to mention that! If larger lots make your game lag while loading them, mention that too!) I love country settings and beach settings, so anything is really nice. I'm not a picky person. :)

    I want/don’t want berry sims: Never tried them, so go ahead if you wish. :)

    I want/don’t want occult sims: (Be sure to specifically list those that you are fine with or mention which ones you don’t want to see in your game!) I don't have Supernatural, so at this time no.

    I want/don’t want pets in the household: (Like cats more than dogs? Like bundles of cute puppies over horses? Don’t want any of them? Mention it!) I love all pets, so bring them on :)

    Do you want your sims and/or pets skilled up for you? If so, how much? (Example: A couple of points, but not maxed out) Please a couple of points skilled up.

    Are there certain skills you want skilled because you really like having them ready when you start with a new sim or household? (Example: A few points in Cooking would be nice so sims don’t burn the waffles and can make more than a mean bowl of cereal!) Cooking & Handyman skills.

    Are there particular skill items that you really like having in a build? (Example: I love having sims that can cook, garden, paint and write so having those skills would be awe-sim!) A sim who can cook, clean, garden, and write.

    Other: (Describe here anything that you’d really like that might or might not have been previously mentioned!)
    If making a family I'd like to have 1 boy & 1 girl (twins). I think that's about all
