    @ajaxpost Followed your link to see what a Let's Play is and subscribed to continue to listen to your lovely accent!
    I subscribed as I have been following Adrian's blog. @ajaxpost - I agree with @ZeeGee that you have a lovely accent.
    Thank you Jodi, it is much appreciated, though I am a little bemused ... I don't have an accent ... ;)
    @ajaxpost - Hmm. I think it is two five votes to one right now that you have a lovely accent. Maybe we should let Samantha's parrot decide?

    Edit to update vote count :smiley:

    Awww, you guys! :blush:

    Thank you @Me1620, @ZeeGee, @kuroi_nekomata, @Ktarian, and @bekkasan I know when I'm beaten and will graciously accept the compliment and hope my videos continue to entertain you :)

    I'm planning on getting a better microphone soon (I'm just using the headset mic at the moment) which will hopefully improve the audio.

    Hello DD people! Happy new year!
    It has been a few months and now there is a new page! Wow! I haven't been able to play or spend much time in the store recently, but I have a bit of a vacation now and I'm excited to be back on! I need to readjust my list and catch up!
    Hi, welcome back. It's always a pleasure to see DD friends returning after time away, I hope that 2016 brings you many joys in both your Sims life and offline life.

    Today I realized I'm almost done with all the sets that are part of the DD rotation... I'm currently waiting for those sets to come up. :blush: Now I'm working a few other sets that are not part of the DD and there are still some venues and worlds left that I don't own yet. But I've been trying to save up my simpoints so I can buy them (either from the DD or not).

    It is such a strange feeling that, besides the single store items, there isn't much left anymore. I enjoyed the DD stalking so much, I don't want it to be over yet! :lol:

    I just can't believe how fast I have reached this point. :o Honestly, I didn't think I would ever get there. And that's all because of the kind-hearted, generous Simmers on here! :heart: There are just no words for that! :blush:

    I think if you ask most of the DD Stalkers, we miss the days we were stalking the DD. I still look for bonus ads so that I can shop vicariously through those who are still working towards owning the store.

    @Me1620 Yes, I've heard more people say that. :wink: I know I will miss it as well. It already feels like there is something missing :lol: So I plan on doing the same, so I can help as many other Simmers as possible. Everyone has been so kind to me, I really want to do something back to this wonderful community :blush:

    @Me1620 can I ask how many videos I can expect to watch daily to earn sp's as a newbie.?! My first two days I got to,watch a lot, yesterday not so many and today so far only 1.
    I am so lucky with the gifts I have received and today I was able to buy the Broadwalk but it would be nice to earn more so that I can also buy more and gift more myself and return the pleasure of gifting to those who still have a wish list.
    I hope that made sense lol :D

    I'm afraid I don't think there is any particular logic. Sometimes you may get hundreds and sometimes, as you've discovered, barely any.

    There is supposed to be a quota for each country but I don't know of anyone who knows any more than that; though it has nothing to do with whether you are a new or long-standing member of the forum - in fact I'm not the TS3 Store site even knows what your membership status is anyway.

    Just keep clicking on different store pages and wishlists when you can and you should be rewarded. :)

    @Hayley~Belle - The sims ad can change based on what sponsors decide to give out and where there target market is. Example would be in November I receive many ads relating to politicians who were running is my state, the ads were only shown in areas of my state that was their district.

    Here is things that I do to increase chances to receive more ads. Check multiple pages on the Sims 3 site (DD Page, Weekly Sales Page, your friends Wishlist Page, and pages related to different items pages). No guarantees but sometimes help. My normal pages that I look at are the first two, but sometimes when looking at the others I might get lucky to pick up more. Also check different times of the day.

    Agreed. When ads are slow, I usually wait about 20 or 30 seconds on a page, and if an ad doesn't appear I click to a new page. I think ads might be a little bit easier for me than some others, because I'm in California (in a target rich area), but they've definitely been scarce at times.

    Trying different pages can certainly help. I click around a lot to random store pages. Also, I've found that sometimes the ad box appears right away, but sometimes it takes 20-30 seconds to appear. And while sometimes ad boxes will appear even if the tab is not active, many times the tab I'm waiting for an ad box to appear on must be active or no ad box will appear.

    When ads are scarce, what's even more annoying is when you get an ad box and the ad doesn't play properly. However, some of these it is possible to get points anyhow. The little tiny ad videos that pop up, sometimes after a few seconds reset their screen to show the play button again. I've found that when that happens, if I click twice in succession (not a double-click) on the video as if I'm trying to get it to start again, then after a few seconds the 'thank you here's your points' box pops up.

    Oh, and also, I often seem to get more ads late at night. I'm assuming this is because there are fewer people online looking for them at that time of day. xD
  • Sookie_54Sookie_54 Posts: 429 Member
    Luckily for me the ads aren't to bad right now. I set myself an alarm for when Indulgent Living is on the DD. :)
  • frozenorangejuicfrozenorangejuic Posts: 1,830 Member
    @Hayley~Belle another tip for getting more ads is to use your browser in "incognito" mode (for chrome, not sure what it's called for other browsers). Or to clear your... cookies? (I think that's right) often. I'm not sure why it works but I've often found that in my regular browser I get no ads but then I open an incognito tab and there they are.

    Just so you understand the reason behind my last post. This is the type of great information that got lost in our 1000 page thread. I have now gathered the answers in one post and added the question to the bonus ad section on page 1 with a link to the last post. I plan to keep doing this throughout the thread when a group of DDers provide answers to a question.

    Feedback please - I was torn between placing the Q. & A. above in the FAQ section or the section on ad points. I chose the ad point sections. Where do you think it will be easier to notice?

    @frozenorangejuic - I have also seen a greater number of ads in incognito mode (InPrivate browsing for IE). Are you able to click on the ads and open them?

    Here is a list for the current deal and the deals for the next 24 hours. This group of deals includes mainly white deals, those that appear once on the DD. Seeing Stars, one of those pesky not eligible for CYS sets, makes one of its two appearances both of which are green.

    Current Deal started on 1/4/2016 at 4:19 am UTC
    This is a 3-hour deal
    703 ) Woven Wicker Trunk / 9 / 25 / 64% / 3 hours
    Part of: Island Villa; Island Escape Compilation; Sandy Shoals Sea Shanty
    This is the only time the item is offered on the DD

    704 ) Haute Hip Wall Tree Light / 12 / 28 / 57% / 2 hours
    Part of: Haute Hip
    This is the only time the item is offered on the DD

    705 ) Modern Interpretation Outfit / 39 / 61 / 36% / 2 hours
    Part of: Japanese Inspired Clothing Collection; Finest Living, Finest Cooking; December 2011 Compilation Set; World Inspiration Compilation
    This is the only time the item is offered on the DD

    Tip: If you plan on purchasing Seeing Stars which is deal 708, do not purchase this item. The set is not eligible for the CYS discount, so you won’t get credit for buying this item.
    706 ) Show Stopping Style- Liar Liar Pants / 22 / 54 / 59% / 2 hours
    Part of: Show Stopping Styles Collection; Seeing Stars
    This is the only time the item is offered on the DD

    707 ) Ultra Lounge Sink / 33 / 68 / 51% / 2 hours
    Part of: Ultra Lounge Bath; Ultra Lounge Kitchen + Bath; Ultra Lounge 2010; Best of 2010 Collection
    This is the only time the item is offered on the DD

    Tip: This set is not eligible for CYS discount. Purchasing this deal is the best way to get Seeing Stars as opposed to buying individual items. Excellent sales price too!
    708 ) Seeing Stars / 571 / 2100 / 73% / 2 hours
    Not part of any set or compilation
    Includes: Show Stopping Styles Collection
    Repeat Deal: This deal is offered twice at the same sale price (Same as # 885)

    709 ) Haute Hip Window Collection V.1 / 45 / 81 / 44% / 2 hours
    Part of: Haute Hip
    This is the only time the item is offered on the DD

    710 ) Troubadour Table / 16 / 41 / 61% / 2 hours
    Part of: Full Interior Castle Set; Best of 2010 Collection
    This is the only time the item is offered on the DD

    711 ) Edwardian Expression Kitchen- Dispose With Diginity Trashcan / 30 / 50 / 40% / 2 hours
    Part of: Edwardian Expression Kitchen Set; New Year, New Kitchen!; January 2012 Compilation
    This is the only time the item is offered on the DD

    712 ) Drifter's Desire / 567 / 714 / 21% / 2 hours
    Part of: Fortune's Folly Compilation
    Repeat Deal: This is a medium price for this item (More than # 33, same as # 232 but less than # 577, # 897)

    713 ) Ki-Mini Kimono Outfit / 23 / 81 / 72% / 2 hours
    Part of: Japanese Inspired Clothing Collection; Finest Living, Finest Cooking; December 2011 Compilation Set; World Inspiration Compilation
    This is the only time the item is offered on the DD

    714 ) Man Cave Compilation / 750 / 3000 / 75% / 2 hours
    Not part of any set or compilation
    Includes: It's Game Time; Level Up Collection; Championship Dreams
    Repeat Deal: This one of two deals with the least expensive price for this item (Same as # 386 but less than # 339, # 336)

    715 ) The Now & Then Century Manor / 1045 / 1900 / 45% / 2 hours

    Hi Jodi,

    I think the way that you are adding new information is great; especially considering you run the risk of losing an entire post when updating an old one.

    I agree with your decision about keeping this information in a 'Simpoints' section as it helps keep issues around getting Store content separate from the number of issues to do with getting the Simpoint funds to buy the content.

    As for Tasha's 'incognito' suggestion. I started doing that a long time ago when it was first suggested on one of the DD threads and it works fine in Firefox at least (my default browser) and I think I've tried it with Chrome and it worked. All this 'private' mode basically does is not record what you do and all the pages you visit should work exactly the same as in 'open' mode - certainly have in my experience - they just don't remember any settings such as logins or cookies.

    @ajaxpost - Thanks so much for the feedback Adrian. I value your opinion.

    I will have to try again to click on the ad in incognito mode. In the past, I would click on the ad and the login in box would appear. But after I logged on, the blue bonus ad box would disappear.

    that is what happened to me last night. I tried several times. Both on my laptop and on my tablet. I had no ads for a few hours no matter what page I clicked on. Eventually after 10pm mountain time they came back though.

    I really appreciate you putting all the information together Me1620. I've been taking advantage of the DD and planning when to buy stuff, what's best to go on a wish list etc, now armed with all this information I can now concentrate this evening on spending some quality time in my game and get to know it. Thank you <3

    The same thing happens to me in incognito mode!

    I don't use 'incognito' at home anymore but I do from work and it works fine. It might be that you need to login in first, before clicking the first ad. Remember that it is an entirely new session and will not know anything about your login on any other browser session.

    Hopefully it is as simple as that. :)
