    @Caerfinon , as I said in your thread, can totally understand Jac :D

    THERE MUST BE BACON!!!!

    I hope the bacon will be crispy 🥓

    Not too crispy, I hope. I like my bacon softer than crunchy.

    Not a big bacon fan, but when I have it, I do prefer it to be softer. Crispy often translates to burned meat.

    @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.😋

    VINDICATION

    I see it too. :D

    I've seen that before. That’s the top view of a beer float. I know this for a fact, even though I never had one in me life. I prefer Fire Water -plus- I will always have that scoop of icecream in a separate bowl. Ice cream tastes nice with a wee drop of Uisce Beatha. Everything is nice with the latter.

    Seriously though, the AHQ emojis look…quite peculiar. I don’t know what half of them represent. I personally wouldn't call it "human expressions"-some of them are absolutely frightening. Pancakes, perhaps. Pancakes pretending to be humans. Mmm, I could live with that, but fear not, upon further investigation I've come to the conclusion that the pancake/lager/beerfloat spoiler is indeed a smiley face covering their eyes (?) with a white oven mitt.

    Beerfloat-smll.jpg
    Whatever is hiding under that spoiler is obviously too hot to touch. Sneaky rascal.


    I must admit that I find it a little challenging to be in two places at once. I'm trying to be more present on AHQ, but I find it incredibly difficult to navigate. It feels a little cramped in places and it takes me ages to get to my destination. It's like a kid asking you to go on the childsized jungle gym with them and you do it because your inner kid is very much alive and well, but then you find out (sigh, too late) that you're just not built for that kind of structure because well, you're a grown-peach adult dude and that kid is only very small. "MMMOKAY KID, I REALLY WANNA GO OVER THERE BUT I'M STUCK INSIDE THIS NET. HELP?!" Alas, no help arrives, since kids are monkeys and some will just stare at your hairy red face and contemplate the meaning of your awkward adultness.

    I'm not saying that AHQ is childish, I'm just saying it feels a little...tight. There's too much clutter at the top and the side of the page. I find comfort in seeing familiar faces and in all fairness, the Champions are very welcoming and helpful, unlike those random little monkeys on the jungle gym. You're doing a great job! The rich text-format is a no-brainer and will come in handy when we're no longer required to use an external image hosting service on the new forum. But then I go onto one of the threads when I notice that I left a comment, except, I can't remember writing that particular paragraph. In fact, it doesn't sound like me at all. First I start to blame the uisce - as you would -until I realise someone else is using the same avatar as me! And that right there confuses my early caveman brain. My image recognition software is a lot more developed than my OCR system, so it takes me a while to recalibrate when the social media handle doesn't "match" the avatar. Obviously we cannot blame people for having the same profile picture since planet AHQ only offers a limited choice - however-due to the way my poor noggin is wired, I've mistaken many people on that site for someone else because of their avatar. This includes myself. *screams internally.

    The AHQ platform isn't designed for hanging out perse, I don't think it's built for that kind of self expression- it's called ANSWERS HQ: Ask. Answer. Level Up. And basically Leave as soon as yer done..
    That's exactly how I feel about it at the moment. I would need to do a lot more work (aka share an unhealthy amount of my nonsense) BEFORE I can fully customize my own profile and "be myself". Or can I at all? Is that up to EA?
    I truly hope the new forum will work different in that regard, or it'll be Clone Wars all over with our only weapons being stacks upon stacks of buttery pancakes. 🥞

    @CAPTAIN_NXR7 I too got very confused seeing so many Captains that are not captain after registering that avatar in my image recognition program :joy: its like that one simsmas except now its captains everywhere not simmingals

    I really hope they will bring back profile pictures for everyone on new site its just so much easier to tell people apart here

    and yeah its bit hard to bounce between AHQ and back here so I'm mainly just here as long as this site lets me in no troubles and I have some company :)

    I try to remember to check up on AHQ every now and then though just in case I am missing out on secret party or something

    as for the jungle gym reference though mood except I already was too big for those darned torture centers as kid so uh, yeah.

    @CAPTAIN_NXR7, @Simmingal, @February11 I agree. I can’t jump back and forth between two sites. No slight to Cade and the teams there, but it’s easier to stay here. I do want to check in some, but I’m not jumping ship, yet. In fact, I think Oberon is planning a little wake/reopening party at The Blue Moon for the day this forum goes dark and the new forum launches. Hope to see everyone then!

    My understanding is the account that matches your EA account is the one that will be used.

    It's based on the email address for the accounts.

    Is that ok on a personal security basis? My original was, so I changed it to my current Sim name. People can guess what the second part is if that is based on your email account used for all emails. eg: gmail, outlook, etc.

    Whatever you have as EA ID in your AHQ account details will be your username on new forum

    if you have used same email on this forum and AHQ then some of your posts here may transfer to new forum. but they can't link account that uses different email as being same account.

    It's going to be its own separate website. AHQ is only an alternative for the next three months or so where what you post won't just disappear when this forum is shut down.

    Using the same email address in multiple places is pretty standard. In and of itself, a non-issue. As for email security, make sure you set up two-factor authentication on your accounts.

    Oh I hate this so much. I went to Discord (what an appropriate name) and set up an account and then they said my email address was already registered so I am flat out of luck. So I can't even get help over there because they won't even let me log in. I guess I am not part of the Sims Community. All things must come to an end.

    If you already have a Discord account (and it's yours if it's your email address!), you just need to get fresh login details. Discord also has no connection to the new Sims 4 forums or AHQ.

    One thing I have done is to remove my debit card number from my account & AHQ. I'll enter it every time I want to buy something and delete it after. I want to use my name on here and not have part of my email name used.

    Ooh, good question. I didn't think of asking that. I might then be able to go back to my current one here after having to revert to my old one - unless because it's taken by someone AHQ.

    @EA_Cade , after these forums are closed, what will happen to the threads and direct messages? Will they be automatically deleted forever?

    I’m especially curious about the direct messages which I and others have used extensively for one-to-one as well as group chats.

    Would / could there be an opportunity for us to delete both the public and private direct message threads ourselves prior to closure?

    Will the link to the new forum be posted here before shut down, or on AHQ?
