I recently came across an old thread someone had resurrected to comment on and got some very useful information from it myself. No sooner than I commented you necro'd it. Not a good way to treat newcomers to the Forum. I felt embarrassed for even commenting on it and I've been a Simmer since "The Sims".
Why close useful information which might have had important additions since, via the addition of new Packs and Patches?
Maybe a "send to Archive" or a new "How to play, useful threads" button and change of heading so that people can easily find it. Maybe upgrade some "seasoned" Simmers to help you out choosing which info. to add and only give them the button? This would be distinct and separate from complaints and I've got a bug type stuff.
There is no guidebook for this game and Seasons, particularly has impacted old Expansion and Pack content.
