SIMS 3 CHALLENGE LIST (updated March 17th, 2019)

The purpose of this thread is to create a current list of all available challenges for The Sims 3. This includes Legacy and many other type challenges. There have been other threads in the past, but they haven't been updated in at least a year, so here's a new one that will be much more up to date. Please feel free to add any new challenges in the comments! Any thoughts on how you would like to see this list formatted are welcome. Thank you to @ybboccobby04ybboccobby04 , @iButterfreeiButterfree & @ELIROCELIROC for all the work you put into the original posts.

***PLEASE NOTE: Many of the challenges on the old thread had links to the OLD forums for sims 3. That forum no longer exists and I couldn't find any rules for them anywhere else...so they were not put on this list. If you find any let me know!***

I have organized the challenges below by "types" of challenge. Links to find each type are here:
1. To submit a challenge to be added to the list, please include the challenge name and a working link for full challenge rules.
2. Challenges submitted MUST have their own forum thread or blog/website post for rules. Any challenges posted with rules within this thread will NOT be added to the list.
3. Read below for tips on creating a new challenge.
4. Feel free to ask any questions you may have!

Here are some excellent tips when creating a new challenge, written by @EuphorialQueen:
When I am reading thru a new challenge suggestion I look for a few key items:
What is the story behind the challenge?
Tell me something to make me interested in reading more about the challenge.
Is it based on another existing challenge?
Is it a complete challenge with a beginning, middle and end?
How do I start, how do I play and what is the ultimate goal or how do I 'win'?
Do the rules or guidelines seem reasonable and can goals set by the challenge actually be achieved?
Has the person posting the challenge play tested it?
By posting a challenge on a blog or in the forums it is much easier to discuss and ask questions.
When updating a challenge or change the guidelines just edit the thread where it is posted.
Starting too many threads on the same challenge or subject only adds to confusion and leads to information being lost.

These are only suggestions and offer a view of how I - as one person - review challenges.
Thank you for your time.

Edit: Use spell check and complete words to make reading your post more pleasant and easier to understand.
