    Hello! I was wondering if I could get my username changed to elizacat26
    I made this account a very long time ago before I knew what I really wanted my online personality (?) to be!
    Thanks so much!

    Why is this forum so hostile to new users?
    As MANY others have said there are no private messages or contact for admins so members must use comments which just seems silly.

    However the reason anyone comes to a forums is because they most likely want to support the subject matter. But instead of moderating the bad people, it seems rather lazy to say everyone must get points before posting thier concerns or comments.

    I have to believe most people are probably well meaning adults that don't have time to scrounge for points and in the mean time are unable to give their concerns about something that is making their gameplay experience worse which in turns makes users, and me in particular, not want to play or buy any new content since I can't express the hurdles I'm having or see if there are any upcoming fixes, and no but bugs just simple gameplay decisions so I'm stuck with no recourse

      This forum has a post criteria to prevent spammers from posting illegal & unsavoury pictures on this board, sometimes containing horrendous images of children, which users have had to endure before. The post limit is there to protect users from that kind of thing. Not due to hostility against new users.

      Hi Speed145,

      I'm sorry you feel this way. The criteria new members must meet to become a full fledged forum member and unlock all permissions is set to limit spammers from creating throwaway accounts and disrupting the community. We do not have the resources to have staff on the forums 24 hours a day, 7 days a week in order to vet each member that joins, so unfortunately these are steps that are very much needed to protect the community against such disruption.

      We are conscious that some folks have no interest in becoming a part of the forum community when using this space so we have adjusted the criteria to be easily unlockable for such members. We've outlined threads that can help you achieve this criteria here: https://forums.thesims.com/en_US/discussion/934205/small-change-for-new-members#latest

      The criteria itself does not limit your ability to post on the forum, so you should still be able to share your feedback. The 'search' function will be a great tool in helping you source a thread on your topic of choice. If you need assistance, please use the Answers HQ - The Sims section as the The Sims support forum: https://answers.ea.com/t5/The-Sims/ct-p/the-sims

      This I will support Lanna on this with Youth forums with adults its never easy this has been put in place for your own protection I had many times report or file forms of abuse on other sites that you don't want to even know so these rules safeguard you and the youth of the forums helping keep The Sims Forum safe and its not from hostile users this happens anywhere its because it saves spambots or photos showing up in The Sims Forums.
  • Snookat
    hi, sorry to bother you but I logged in from a different computer and ended up making an account called @snookatz. I then posted a comment that I would like removed, please. It is a new challenge I am doing and really just want one account here. I still can not add my own photo so.let's just say I'm not abusing the forums loll.

    any help for my dumb mistake would be greatly appreciated.

      Hi, I've just responded to your account deletion request post. There would be little point renaming an account if it's going to be deleted. Could you confirm which you'd like to pursue and we can proceed accordingly.
  • ArianaVerySweet2
    Hi Lanna,
    I'm requesting to delete my Sims Forum account.
    I couldn't seem to find a private message option so I've ended up sending the message here.
    And if you do delete this account, it'd be amazing if you could delete my *very* old forum comments/threads.
    Thank you so much.

      Hi, I cannot help you there I'm afraid. For any and all deletion requests, both account wise and comment wise you would need to talk to the EA Help support team. This link will bring up their 'Contact Us' page: https://help.ea.com/en/contact-us/

  • idkemily
    Hi! I'm new to the forums and I can't figure out how to start a discussion forum. I can comment on people's posts but no where am I able to post a new discussion myself. Also, I can't even change my avatar photo! It's driving me crazy.

      You're a new member! when you've gotten a certain amount of points (I've forgotten how many @rosemow could probably tell you, points are earned when people like your posts) and have an account older than 24 hours you will be promoted to member and can do the things you mentioned
  • Lovelysimmies
    Hi Lanna!
    I am also requesting a name change if that's possible! I put my own name but I don't feel super comfortable having it as my name. I was wondering if I could change it to Lovelysimmies? I would really appreciate it! Thank you!

    Hello Lanna! :)
    I so wish I didn't have to ask such a silly thing directly to your wall, but here we are, lol. When you have a moment, if I could please trouble you for a name change to match my Origin? MsShaSha if possible, please. Thank you so very much! Hope you're having a wonderful week. <3

      And what is the name of that woman with the grey pixie cut hair to the right of her? That sim looks like an Eleanor or a Sara to me. I still get an overload of Indian names in my game.
    • EA_Lanna
      EA_Lanna
      She is a premade Sim with the Get Famous pack. Her full name is Brytani Cho.

      For some reason, I forget that Britaini exists in De Sol Valley. Might be because of the over abundance of townies in my game dressing weirdly
  • Biotic_Warlock
    Hi EA_Lanna,
    Sorry to bother you, as I am sure you must get this request a lot, but I was wondering if I could change my username to match my Origin name, Biotic_Warlock.
    All the best. :)

      I can do :) Popped that rename in for you and it should update soon.

  • OnyxOmi
    Hi Lanna, would it be possible for you to change my forum username to Onyx-Omi please, or OnyxOmi? Also, out of curiosity, would this change the username on the Sims3 community account? If not, do you know how I would go about this? Many thanks!
    November 15
    • EA_Lanna
      EA_Lanna
      Hi, Onyx-Omi wouldn't update as symbols aren't accepted ^^ I've removed the '-' and the name OnyxOmi was accepted. If the lack of that symbol changes your wish to be Onyx Omi, I can revert this change and try an alternate name you provide. :) I'm afraid I'm not aware of any way to update usernames on thesims3.com :/ Sorry.
    • OnyxOmi

      Thank you so much for changing my username! Ah no worries, I thought I'd ask incase you knew. Thank you :)
  • purplebloon
    I can't post to any threads. I'm encountering this bug: 879315/investigate? My comment is relevant even after a year because the bug is NOT happening to a teenage sim. I'm playing a young adult who is doing this. Why make me jump through all the hoops to register and then not allow me to post a comment on the thread? I can't post a link to the thread because I'm "too new" and now there is a spam block on my account for trying to post without the link?? This is really a terrible forum for new users.

    I went through the process of closing this account via the link you gave me but it’s been weeks and this account is clearly still active so I’m pretty annoyed. I don’t understand why we can’t change our usernames within our own account settings like just about every other website. It’s frustrating that I can’t delete my account myself without involving another party. I hope this is being looked at, but I know it’s not, so since I’m stuck with this account, I want to change the name to whatever is available from this list: kaiyote23, freezerhunnyx, 6pom, smellycat, trashdemon, or moltendrama
