      Hello :) Your Christmas avi is very nice :)

    As a community manager I hope you can look into making this forum less hostile to new members.

    I know you have rules against new members posting but even if we've been here for months we still can not post without gaining points. It's silly to force members to post replies that will just be nonsense in order to finally voice their actual true concerns.

    Every time I try to play the Sims there are a few nagging gameplay issues that I'd like to post about to see if they may be addresses one day, it's the main reason I have yet to buy new expansions, but you don't allow me a voice here unless I get points.

    why is it so important to silence all new members who want to be part of your community instead of singling out the bad, it's a game.

    Using capthcas or even allowing new users to post 2 weeks later would be better than making everyone new try to reply about things they don't have any time, need, or desire to talk about to get points so they can get their concerns voiced.

    Thank you

      Hi =]
      If you're looking for help with game problems then you can not post here but you must go to EA Help and post. This is not a place for getting help anymore. It's about sharing game play and that can be done even as a new member.
      It doesn't take much to earn the posts count and points to become a member. Do you need some help with it? There's an Off topic section to participate in and many topics to earn points by just being part of the community. =]

      They did try using captcha's but that didn't deter the spambots/trolls from posting over here, so this the system that they've put into place. Everyone's points had reset when they put this system in place and people who already the requirements were deemed full members.

      See the thing is is that we have/had new members who create postings that really have nothing to do with the topic/s. Some new members would just create postings with random letters/numbers, postings that only ask "Please like this post so that I can can become a member!" in other threads or on their walls. Well those are the types of postings that the OP is talking about, the ones where the creator is asking/begging for points. The site does encourage postings in threads just as long as the postings keep with the topic of the thread or otherwise it would be consider as spam and can be removed by the management team.

      The rule below states that any postings created asking for points will be closed as it's goal is to influence others to help boost up points.

      [quote]Cheat to rank up. Level up your forum account just like you would level up in one of our games, by participating and not by cheating. Any threads posted to boost points or otherwise influence your forum rank directly will be closed.[/quote]

      The management team had already adjusted the points system from the 50 points and 30 posts to 25 points and 15 posts to make leveling up to member a lot quicker than it was before.

      Also to say that EA_Lanna already answered your question on her wall that you asked earlier about the system.

      Hi Rflong7,
      You have the right to free speech but with this does come consequences unfortunately your using someone else's program so this means that you follow the rules.

      If it makes you feel better I am the worst at making mistakes ; ) I am still a newbie myself you have incredible talent I am sure teens will line up asking for illustrating and stuff have you ever thought of it as a career choice?

      You know I created a modding group with others but some are afraid to join without going into to much details would you like to join my team ?

      You would have to create clean mods but most requests are things for babies on Sims four and mobile I am looking for someone with talent and you got it if you use your talents the right way many will be wanting more things and you might one day be a EA Hero ;).

      Until then would you like to be a sim buddy and Direct Message me on ideas, stuff you create etc. you like by direct message looking forward to hearing from you.

      Happy Holidays

      Hi Bubbz ,
      During holidays its likely you won't get a response but please if you see something that makes you uncomfortable on the forums just flag the issue its the quickest way to resolve the issue.
      If its technical you will want to go to EA ahq which beware staff are limited. Next General questions you have along as its teen appropriate you can post it in the correct forums here Simgurus or just sim fans maybe able to help you.

      If its not personal or anything that interferes with staff is there a Question you need to ask?

      If its something important the please be patient and staff will get to you when you can.

      Bumping threads I did this myself once was a mistake you learn your lessons so don't worry we all have been their if you ever need a "Sim Buddy" direct message me I may not email right away but I can guide and talk about all of the fun sim events and ideas.

    Hi EA_Mai!

    I had a wanted to know if your team at EA could help with a unique request, or maybe you’d be able to point me in the right direction.

    My best friend is an AVID Sims players. Always has been, always will be. He’s spent hours playing through Sims 4 and all it’s unique expansions, and I know he’s craving more with the advent of Sims 5. Since I cannot get him Sims 5 for the holidays, I was hoping I could get him something in the spirit.

    He also really likes models and figures so I wanted to know if EA could make or point me in the right direction to how I could make a “Sim in a Bottle” so he can look at his mantle in anticipation of your latest releases.

    I know this is short notice before the holidays, but even being able to get this to him by January would really mean a lot to me, and I know for sure, him.

    Feel free to reach out with additonal questions about the “Sim in a Bottle”!

    😁✌️🤙

      If this is a urgent issue due to medical then please check with Child Life Services, If this is a Adult issue and Terminal please do a active message off The Sims Forum and use other Social Media websites ask your post to be shared. If this is another issue please contact EA Press and Media , or AHQ which Mai will likely direct you to the proper forum or department.

      Hey Simta Claus, by "Sim in a Bottle" you mean a figure of a small Sim inside a bottle? I don't think we have created something like that, but if you are looking for a gift for a Simmer, I would check here: https://thesims.threadless.com/

      No figures there but plenty other items! :)

      Would it be possible to bottle a small Sim in a bottle to get a similar affect?

      Have you look for a 3D printer Company that could make a Sim that represents your brother?

      If you can buy a mason Jar super glue the 3d Sim Model to the lid , next add water and fake snow please keep Mason Jar upwards and tilt lid downards til you have a Sim Like globe, other ideas using sim logos or pictures and using print on t-shirts they are often affordable.


      You could print your own sim cards,

      Or create your own sim photo pillows printed many companies are out there so you should find something that suits you needs for a gift.

      Now questions to all simmers what type of Sim products or crafts that may help our sim buddie?

      Anyone have any ideas?

      Hey, while creating your Sim in Create a Sim, click on your Sim's head and check the 'hats' option ;)

      The "Promoted" means that a SimGuru/SimStaff member has liked someone's post... :)
    • EA_Mai

      lisasc is right :) - this is a 'reaction' available only for EA staff/SimGurus, which helps posts get some extra points to appear in the 'Best of' section. I could 'promote' myself ;)
  • PRINCESSRey
    Any chance you can look at my reports I be forever grateful.
    Happy Holidays
