    Another random question.

    So, any URL linking to this forums will link to the new one once this closes down, right?

    If so, will a link to a thread link to the same thread in the new forums?

    So, for example, I have this link (For Rent Residential Rental Preparation Thread).

    Once this forums closes down, will it lead to For Rent Residential Rental Preparation Thread on the new forums or will it link to the main page?

    I'll miss the familiarity of this site, but I'm sure the next one will rock.
    Good luck on the change!

    Does anyone here know if the nominations thread will be opened again? I didn't realize this migration was happening and I would love to have my Rags To Riches Mega Challenge live on.

    Will the new forums enable people to share pictures directly from thier devices? 🤞

    Trying to set up an Ingur account or others is very frustrating! 😵‍💫

    Yes, you'll be able to upload directly to the site similarly to how Answers HQ does currently.

    I thought we needed a hosting site for pictures on AHQ too?

    You can do both currently.

    You can upload directly to AHQ via the attachment option, or by using the insert image icon on the hotbar:

    @EA_Cade Thank you. I’ll try it out later

    Additional fun fact, I thought the 5th Icon in was of pancakes for like 2 years:

    Spent more time than I care to admit trying to figure out the correlation between pancakes and spoilers. 🙃

    It does sort of look like pancakes with a dolloped of butter on top.😋

    I fear that my questions might have been missed...

    So I'll ask these again.

    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:
    EgonVM wrote: »
    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...

    Heya @EgonVM

    Apologies, I did in fact miss this.

    I'll bring these up to the forum host and get back to you as soon as I get more info.

    Hey, I haven't been on here in quite awhile and my narcolepsy has been knocking me out so I don't have it in me to read past comments :'( Could someone provide a link to the new thing? I think there already was one provided in the past but, foggy brain and all that. Thanks in advance!

    The new forums doesn’t launch until July 2024 @fujicakes1 so there isn’t a link to it yet. I send hugs to you with your narcolepsy ❤️

    I kind of stopped using the forums in part because I didn't know what would be gone, I thought it was going to move over earlier this month. I was super confused.
