    I think they're trying to make it sounds similar to plumbob, hence it's called plopsy?

    Now I'm hoping they will switch the name to Plumsy or something. That definitely doesn't make me cringe in the same way Plopsy does.

    I'm fine with Plopsy, I just don't want the pack to be named "Luv 2 Knit Stuff".

    I have no idea what this is refering to, but 'plopsy' sounds like a toddlers word for poop.
    With you on this. 1st thing that came to mind when I read it. Can't believe they would be so childish as to come up with a name like that.

    Lol there’s a guy named Goopy Gilscarbo and a family named Pancakes. Plopsy seems par for the course.

    Me, too. It has the sound of 'Etsy', and it's cute.
    I just want things to match. :'(

    It sounds like a rabbits name

    Seriously? I don't think it sounds like a potty joke at all

    I love this conversation. :D

    I'll admit, the name made me cringe a little. But then I shrugged it off. And while I'd prefer a different name like Plumsy, Popsy, Fopsy or even Sim-Bay, I don't think it will matter that much in the end.

    I'm not wasting my energy (at least not much of it) on this name, but it confuses be a tad that Plopsy sounds like being unsuccessful - your craft quality goes down the drain - rather than building a successful business. I have a problem matching the name with a successful market place, as I kinda expect it to be filled up with not so talented works.
    - Hey, I'm done with the sweater, dear, but it did not turn out as I expected. I better trash it... no wait, I could try selling it on Plopsy, I'm sure someone might actually buy it!

    I would have preferred each of those suggestions over plopsy. But the gameplay attached to it interests me more than the name.

    I'll admit plopsy is a bit odd. Could it be the simlish translation of Etsy ? Sounds like a pet name.

    There are many selling apps in real life with goofy names. Plopsy is cute and fits Sims imo

    I asked a teen what they thought of with the word plopsy and they said, "The mind of an 8 year old. Probably some dumb potty joke?" rest my case.

    It's just a name.
    I think we have better things to complain about in this game.

    Asked a teen about Plopsy. First reaction: "What the heck is a plopsy, sounds like a Dr. Who thing"
    Explained context: "Okay, that is cute."

    Anecdotal thoughts aren't universal, of course. I think my daughter (the aforementioned teen) is more excited about the idea of selling items online in the game than she is concerned about the name.

    I think Plopsy sounds fine, it's probably cause you 'plop' something onto the store. As long as the pack isn't luv 2 knit

    Sounds fine to me...
    I mean when you start listing it with others it takes me back to my childhood and I feel like it fits right in with Flopsy, Mopsy, Cottontail & Peter haha.

    Yeah plopsy to me sounds like some thing you do in the toilet, that was my immediate reaction, but I can't see them changing it

    Honestly the only thing to complain about is the name Plopsy.
  • kwanzaabotkwanzaabot Posts: 2,156 Member
    Hard disagree.
    It being a "parody of a website" is exactly what makes it a perfect Sims name.

    Look at some of the object descriptions sometime.

    In my opinion the broken emotion system, lack of sims personalities, lifestages being left out, objects recycling are more important topics to complain about than a name of feauture which doesn't change any gameplay.
