    Oh that's hilarious I did not expect to see Firefly characters showing up on the TS4 forum today :)

    @rosemow what I meant was not about the new forum but the current one, which we are continuing to use even though we know content won't be permanent.
    Since the nominations period is over, there is no further need for the Nominated Threads section.
    Many of us find that section confusing to navigate given the large amount of announcements on top, and content from all sections of the forum mixed together.

    @mightysprite I think this is an important point. It is hard to find the discussions in the mix. If we can restore the threads to their sections, it will help the community continue to thrive while we wait for the new forum to open up.

    I hope in the new ea forums that they are restored to their respective sections.

    Bookmarking threads will help everyone to find their threads @mightysprite :).

    It's also helpful to keep the nominated threads so we know that what we nominated is coming with us. Our suitcase is packed :)!

    You could use the control F button to find certain words on the nominated treads list, and then, bookmark any threads that you haven't already bookmarked. That will help everyone to stay organized.

    I have had all threads I mostly look bookmarked for so long, I did not even notice those were moved at first :)
    My love, my love, my fearless love, I will not say goodbye..
    Sea may rise, sky may fall, My love will never die..
    My heart, my heart, My drowning heart, Oh all the tears I've cried
    Oh I may weep forevermore, My love will never die..

    @coolsim9999999 Is there any way to sort or organize our bookmarks?

    @Ellupelluellu --- Yeah, it took a few days for them to put the Nominated Threads list together :).

    @mightysprite --- Bookmarks are in order by the date and time that someone posted in each thread. I'll bet that will help you until the new forum opens in July :)!

    Any chance in the new forum that pictures could be put on directly from the game and not by using a third party app?

    I'm late to this but if you move your cursor on the thread, a gear appears. Clicking it gives an option to dismiss those announcement threads. It confusing me as well until I dismissed them

    I have a question, I'm confused, if I keep posting here and in the nominated threads it will be migrated too or not anymore, or I need to post it on the AHQ if I want it to keep migrating?
    Honestly I prefer to keep posting here until the new forum comes up, because I found the AHQ layout confusing to navigate

    Any posts that you make now on any of the threads in this forums won’t be tranferred over to the new EA forums site when it is launched @Hauk150 You can keep posting on these forums, but what you post will disappear when the new forums come.

    Thanks, that's good to know
    I would like to keep my posts, so instead if I post them on the ea answers hq forum I will keep them and they will be moved to the new forum when it comes out?

    @Hauk150 posts on AHQ will not be moved to the new forum. They will remain on AHQ.

    Since the nominations period is over, there is no further need for the Nominated Threads section.

    I asked about this and got a full dissertation of an answer that I'm going to summarize very, very poorly:

    They need to stay in the Nominated Threads section until the site closure.

    @EA_Cade, I have a question about the new website. Will there be any type of a game registration like it was on the old Sims 3 site or will it be like this site where anyone can sign up without a game code of some sort? I only ask this because of all the spammers that this site has seen over the years that we have been here.

    The new forum will use your EA account like Answers HQ does currently. We do get the occasional spammer on AHQ, but our filters there are much more robust than what we have available here and stop most of it before it appears.

    You can find those sections here on AHQ.
    I have an account on that forum you linked that dates back to 2013, will the new forum use that same account, with that same join date or will it be a new one? Thanks.

    Answers HQ will exist independently of the new EA Forums, I believe everyone will have a fresh start date there.

    Ah, now that I have used Answers HQ, I have a new question.

    Can we use the quote formatting without having to quote someone?

    So instead of this in the beginning of the post:

    That's really sad to see forums go down. Really enjoyed my time here.

    How about The Sims 2, The Sims 1, The Sims Medieval, The Sims Franchise, and The Sims 3 sections? Where exactly could we find these?

    And, what exactly is the link to the new forums?

    We can also do this:
    In-game text
    Additional info separated to make it easier to read
    Some list item I guess...

    Lack of it in Answers HQ is really strange sometimes. I have to get creative on what I use for it to separate it from the main text...
