    Yay! DANG! I'm so happy! :D @Charliimai that message board is BRILLIANT! Seb7s just went nuts over there... everybody's going to think he's some crazed madman... he's just very, very happy! Can't wait for Septemus to get back from his first day of school! :open_mouth:


    (I also think this is going to work superbly for the whole collab as a whole! How brilliant! :) )

    Wow, I was super behind, but I think I'm up to speed now! Here's the link to my story page @CathyTea [url]https://allysimbuilds.wordpress.com/alienated-the-alien-adoption-challenge/[/url]

    Reading through all these ideas I'm thinking a bulletin, or email blast is what my character will respond to. She's kind of paranoid to leave the house, as I'd interpreted the challenge as one of secrecy and experimentation. This is aside from going to a weekly "check-up" for non-verbal alien toddlers. Once the child speaks, he'll be removed and scheduled for 1-on-1 lessons at the agency. Maybe this is where she gets on an email list, or sees a bulletin.

    I'm still around. I had hoped to play last night but the hotel was freeeeeeeezing so I ended up reading in bed. By Sunday afternoon though if I don't catch a break I'll be back properly.
    Check out Raerei's Fortress for Builds, Short Stories, and maybe some longer stuff.

    Thanks everyone I just popped into the Bizoopagoto forum and loved seeing your posts I'm really happy it really feels authentic now.

    I have to confess I threw in a red herring while I was testing guest permissions >:) Rebel Vogel is actually a character/sim from my first legacy story. :D the problem of having poor unsuspecting people stumbling into our fake forums should not be an issue as I have turned off the forum promotion options but I'm not sure how well it 's going to work so I will as @Meggles suggests add a disclaimer asap.

    @CathyTea I'm happy for you to be admin if you like. although at this point there is not much left to do except add in the other sub-topics you suggested and start posting. You've done so much already I was really struggling with the topics and you gave me so much to work with. Thank you <3

    I know! I'm so thrilled!

    @Charliimai I wondered why Rebel Vogel sounded familiar! I was like... Yeah... I know those Vogels! They're Sims, right? LOL!

    I'm happy to be an admin, if it's helpful for you!

    Pm'd you @CathyTea

    @Rainydayz179 I think it adds to the fun. I kinda jealous of you guys I'm nowhere near the point in my story where my caregiver is ready to discover the forums let alone be brave enough to start posting. :(

    Anyway I'm off to bed. :tired_face: Have fun, Happy simming!!

    fun fact about Rebel Vogel. He was originally the product of an alien Abduction but due to a glitch after a patch. My game reverted back to an earlier save long before his dad was abducted. So instead we had to get ourselves a surrogate.

    Goodnight :)

    Hiya! Hey, I wanted to ask you all: Is it OK if I quote from your bizoopagoto.forumotion.com posts in my chapters?

    If I do, I will credit you in the Author's Notes and link to your blog.

    And it's fine with me if you quote from Seb7s' posts! :)

    Oh, I assumed that if we signed up for the forum that it was okay to quote from it? I also intend to give credit. I'm curious to see what everyone else thinks.

    I'd guess it would be Ok, too... but, you know . .. Little Miss Manners! :D

    I'm thinking of all sorts of ways the forum can help with themes and issues in the story ! So excited about the way this works as a plot development and integration tool!

    yep it was kind of assumed that we would use each others posts and responses within our stories. Although I'm not at that point yet I plan to screen shot and paste the relevant parts into my story.

    @SoulGal7 Love that Leia is Princess Leia on the forum! So cute!

    Elliott is CodyMcTesterson8. No posts yet. Good to see everyone has been so busy on the forum though! It looks so great!
  • SoulGal7SoulGal7 Posts: 1,665 Member
    @allysimbuilds - ahhh....thanks...that is how I chose her name. Princess Leia....she is a sci-fi geek, and I think her parents were too. lol

    Just peeking in. Looks like everyone's enjoying the new forum thingy. I'll check it out tomorrow, sorry if anyone is waiting for a reply. Our well quit working and we've had this whole situation with no water and stuff to deal with so I haven't been on the computer much.
