    They should make the actual sims website like that for the next sims birthday or something!

    Awwww, they said "BBS" :D

    <-- learned to code on punch cards

    My mom coded on punch cards when she was going to university.

    Very neat website.

    Wow!! I spent so much time on that site. I loved reading player stories. I remember this site so much more than TS1. The TS1 website is back in the day when we still had dial up Internet and I was never allowed on because it cost too much money. Ha!

    I really do miss that Sims 2 website especially with all those logos on the bottom linking you to other sim games :(

    Some of the old "The Sims" websites still exist and my advice is to always keep a backup of all of your bookmarks as you can use them on the Wayback Machine. It likes .html entries.

    I found 2001+ bookmarks on an old usb stick the other day and found a lot of stuff still available.

    Anybody remember all old dungeon stuff?

    Oh my God I used to love the original Sims website. I've been very nostalgic lately and went searching for this site; only to find it no longer was around. Thank you so much for posting this!
  • OldeseadoggeOldeseadogge Posts: 933 Member
    Many thanks for posting this! Lots of fun, many of the buttons still take you places, and a reminder of what a The Sims site should be like. At least we still have the forums, but the rest of the current version is pretty much just company propaganda.
  • StutumStutum Posts: 102 Member
    It was nice to see that old site again. I remember I always looked forward to Thursdays to download whatever treat they'd put out there. Then "Livin' Large" came up, which contained most of the stuff we previously got for free. xD

    And they "gave" us super annoying NPC's like ms. Crumblebottom and annoying mamsters to bite the kids. Woww, I "really" miss that.

    The dollmaker stories can still be seen here:
    The Gingerbread Family, Snowflake Lodge, Black Valentine, and the others are there.

    Also, for anyone still playing Sims 1, dollmaker's Sims 1 Houses site is closing soon on yahoo groups.
    Dollmaker_Sim_ Digs :
    All the houses are well built and use Maxis objects only, no custom content. Lots of houses to choose from.
    Grab them while you can!

    *Edited to add that I made a new thread about this site closing so more people would see it.
