    Congrats simmers and simgurus :)

    I'm still wondering which simguru has been working for more years in The Sims series? My guess: Shannon.

    I thought it was Lyndsay but then I saw Daniel's post about being a tester on the first The Sims. Let's see if anyone owns up to be the longest serving member of the studio.

    Fifteen years of my life in one photo. Thank you all so much for making the greatest series ever. Happy birthday/anniversary! And here's to 15 more amazing years!

    What a great picture @Wilderwolf. I wish I had every box! I have many but for some dumb reason threw out some of the sims 2 boxes. I still have the box set of sims 1 prima guides.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY SIMS!!!

    Pretty sure I'm the only guru who worked on the OG base game.

    @SimGuruDaniel Congrats on being the longest working Guru. Do Gurus ever have dreams about the Sims?

    Do Sims Dream of Gurus?

    @Scobre I've definitely had dreams about The Sims. But it's usually more about all the work that goes into making the game.

    The dreams must turn into nightmares sometimes then. Like dreaming of coding a game and having exploding diapers. XD We really do appreciate all the hard work the Gurus have put into the games in the past fifteen years even though at times it may not seem like it. Personally I think you guys are talented enough to transform the Sims 4 into a great life simulation game. It's just going to take time and maybe a little yelling from Simmers. ;) Thank you for bringing aliens back even though I'll have to wait on a patch hopefully to get my alien toddlers again. I have been in love with those little green things since the Curious brothers of the Sims 2. I named Pascal's first daughter Nebula and then one of his brother's next baby Venus. It was fun giving the kids space names. What are some of your favorite names you pick for kids for your Sims?

    This is Venus and Nebula.

    Venus is half bigfoot and half alien and has some amazing ears on her.

    Be honest: They were about me.

    OK fine, they were about making the game AND about @SimGuruDaniel. In the office, we call him "Dreamy Dan".
    I think I must be a tad tired. I nearly read that as Steely Dan. But lol both of you are really funny.

    Woot! Happy Birthday to The Sims!

    *puts on party outfit and starts to smustle AND hip bump*

    I've been playing since Sims 1. My hubbie bought it for me for my birthday that year and I've been playing ever since!

    Here's my simself (in the pink hat) dancing with other simmies!

    Woot! It's a party!

    Your simself looks like she and the other sims are having lots of fun celebrating the anniversary by dancing @brennachan :) Happy simming! It was a great birthday present that your husband bought sims 1 for you and that you have placed sims from then onwards!

    (*) Happy Birthday, The Sims! (*)

    Once I had a computer good enough to run The Sims, I picked it up and was immediately hooked. I spent SO many hours playing The Sims 1, particularly with my full neighborhood of Buffy the Vampire Slayer CC Sims.

    None of this would have been possible without this amazing, creative, dedicated community! Thank you all! <3
    I'm a Game Designer on The Sims. I started working with Maxis on The Sims 2. :D

    It took me forever to find this video fitting for the thread, but I finally found it on a French site: http://www.wat.tv/video/prince-1999-382gh_2hztv_.html

    Happy birthday, The Sims.

    *tap dances away*

    Not to worry, I have my dancing shoes on.
