    Thank you @Gamefreak130 for the awesome gift you gave me two days ago (Pin up Pretty)! I wasn't able to thank you on your page due to your page being private.

    Also, thank you @mycami21 for the Vamp Neckline Blouse <3

    @rebekah_lindsey - You are welcome.

    I will take this opportunity to advertise the DD thread to those of you who are new to the hunt for store items. The DD or Daily Deal thread not only provides information on the DD but also has tips on sales in general and tips relating to store content. Page 1 of the thread includes a lot of information, but the first post is a listing of the contents making it a bit easier to find the information you want to read. Some tips included are for:
    • How to create a clean wishlist
    • Information on cascades or getting the most value for your simpoints
    • Links to listing of store contents
    • Information on Complete Your Set discount or CYS
    • Links for missing stencils for store content, unlocked terrain paints and official SimGuru lots
    • Links for installing, backing up and organizing your store content

    Like this thread, the DD thread is a friendly place.

    Oh man... I've been mostly lurking around the forums last couple of weeks since I really feel like I haven't had the time, energy or anything relevant to say to actually post a comment. I mostly just read the DD-thread and this one, but just now I ventured further, into the - at least for me - unkown parts of the forums. What I found wasn't pretty.
    Simmers upon simmers just arguing over petty TS3 vs. TS4 stuff like savage animals, ruthlessly throwing sarcastic insults and plain old ad hominem "arguments" at each other. It was horrifying, yes, but more than anything... it was just really, really depressing. I must admit that none of the arguments used managed to make me feel different about my own opinion on the games either; they only made me sad.
    So now I'm crawling back to lurk here in the safety of the company of simmers I know have decency to treat each other and others' opinions with respect. I am never leaving the Store-forums again :lol:
    Don't worry about it ;)

    Yup, they're kinda feisty up there.

    Ads are starting to work and pay for me. Still can't do multiple tabs. But they're working for the first time in 6 months. Now just finding time to click on them all. B)
  • LillaGrisenLillaGrisen Posts: 510 Member
    On brighter note, I believe some thank you's are in order on my part :smile:

    During my time away I have been gifted almost my entire top 5. I assume not even half of the people who gifted me remember that they did so (I wouldn't), but that doesn't mean I've forgotten :smile:

    @lauravonawesome Thank you for the Bow Dress and Sweater Sweetheart! Have unfortunately not gotten around to using them yet, but they will be used :wink:

    @ajaxpost I know you hang around the DD-thread more than this one, but to be fair Belle Teen was in my top 5! So thank you so much for that one :blush:

    @Nomiko13 Thank you for the Relaxed Sweater! I hope it looks as good in-game as the picture in the Store.
    Don't worry about it ;)
  • lauravonawesomelauravonawesome Posts: 2,900 Member
    @LillaGrisen you are most welcome :)

    My ads seem to be working somewhat normally again, meaning I could finally send out presents! I'll be doing another round soon.
    I own the store, as of 12/16/17!| Thank you | Friends?| DD Rotation & Sales Help

    In addition to missing the LOL button, I also miss the Agree button. I usually keep to four threads where I know people treat others decently and respectfully.

    Thanks to a very-kind person I already gave love to on another board, I was able to complete Faire Folk Outdoors for just 75 sp. :)

    One of the items she gifted me was also in my top 5, so that's updated too!

    @scillakees Oh, it's fine, my attic here doesn't go further back than December of last year :wink: I wouldn't even know where to find a lol- or agree-button :sweat_smile:

    @Me1620 This wouldn't have to be said if the following were true, but I do agree that the agree-button (as well as the disagree one -zagadoo, right?) is sorely missed - and I wasn't even around when they existed.
    Don't worry about it ;)

    Thank you @lauravonawesome for the Jacket and Pencil Skirt for Elders <3 I appreciate it. Also, congrats on your points being credited! Lately, it's off and on for my account. One second, points are immediately loaded onto my account and another minute they're not or show up after 10-20 simpoints in later. It's strange, but I suppose is way better than the points being credited several days later.
    Thanks to @Kylieb191, @Nomiko13, and the MMAO machine for clearing out my top 5!

    You're so welcome, sweetheart <3

    @Nomiko13 you are very welcome!

    While points are still inconsistent (SP from the run of ads I watched 7 hours ago still hasn't been credited to my account), I'm just grateful to get anything at all, after 3 weeks with nothing. I don't have much at the moment, but I like to share what I do get with all you wonderful people. :)

    When I wake up, I guess I'll check and see if the points come in. Fingers crossed!

    Also, apologies to anyone who received a notification from me, but no gift~ the glitch strikes again! I'll have to try again later with another item; sorry guys.

    I tend to stay around here, creative corner or general discussion (only the sims 3 side of things though lol) much more safer here :P

    hmm thought I posted here earlier as well :neutral: .. [Edit: Found it elsewhere lol]

    thank you to @Gamefreak130 & @lauravonawesome for the men's shirts! :D

    My men always need cool shirts because I don't spoil them like I do my girls lol in other news I just got into the future, i'll be on and off here for a few weeks but will keep checking in every now and again

    Yeah, it can get messy. But I suppose it's because Sims 4 is still releasing and folks get passionate. I used to take the bait and reply to comments that have ill or sarcastic intent by the typical folks but now I try to avoid that drama as much as possible. Even though I enjoy Sims 4, it's eyeroll inducing when valid criticism that's eloquently explained about the Sims 4 is deflected by throwing shots at Sims 3. A user on there brought up how they think Parenthood is nice but would like to have a Generations themed pack that they felt added a lot to Sims 3 foundations and felt it'd do the same for Sims 4, which I entirely agree with. Folks took the opportunity to throw shots at Sims 3 Generations and claimed it barely added anything new. With Generations being my favorite EP, you know I had to defend it with evidence of how much it added in-game. I know comparisons are inevitable since it's a franchise but it just gets redundant when jabs at Sims 3 is a go-to whenever folks provide constructive criticism to improve on Sims 4 while it's still up and running. It's like, geez, players of Sims 4 just want it to reach its full potential and not fail. We invest our money into this and shouldn't just take whatever it is we're given by EA.

    But yeah, this forum is a lot more chill honestly. I also enjoy the Ideas (and art) section of Sims 4, but avoid Speculation & Rumor. I also like the Off-Topic forum section. So many forum games :blush:

    like everyone else, i generally stay on this board and the dd one... places i'm confident that people treat each other with respect.

    i avoid the sims 4 boards like the plague and can usually be found in ts3 general discussion unless i have a specific issue with ts4 (which is rare, since i don't play it often enough to have issues with it).

    i don't dislike ts4~ my major gripe is that i find the controls to be less user-friendly than 3. but the parenthood ep for 4 sounds awesome; once i'm working again, i might pick up that and city living to round out my ts4 collection if i can get them on sale.

    do i think ea could have done better? yes. but it's not worth folks attacking each other over. we're all simmers, after all.

    on a different note, i've been lurking around the off-topic chat a lot and playing games with the folks over there. seems a lot safer that way lol.
