An Important Update on the Future of These Forums

Comments

    Question about the new forums which may be answered down the line - will there be an app for mobile users? My biggest (and probably only) gripe with these forums is having to go onto a browser from my phone and it being quite a poor mobile experience. I always thought a forum app would make a massive difference to user experience.

    @EA_Cade
    What happens to the screenshots in the nominated threads? Will they be deleted or moved with the thread?

    In the German forum we were able to upload screenshots directly from our PC, we didn't have to use Imgur or any other host.
    In the thread they look like this:
    [img]https://us.v-cdn.net/6022081/uploads/editor/n8/bvtlwe7x46m6.png[/img]
    

    Will these screenshots transfer to the new forum? Or will only pictures be moved that are hosted on an external website?

    For a split second I was like "Why is the What Happened thread in the Sims Franchise section?" 🤔 😄 Then I remembered it was moved in preparation for the threads migration.

    I tried to change my name and it told me it was already registered so I add a "2" at the end and I was able to update it. I tried putting a space between Classical and Sim but it said it contained a banned word. LOL

    I do wish for improved mobile site experience with new forum

    I am writing this from phone and I am almost sure the text alignment is all over the place and my rows make no sense whatsoever for those on desktop site

    but its just more comfy to tap tap tap my phone and I often like checking forums while playing for which phone is easier

    I'm a bit confused about the nominated threads section. Will everything that's been nominated be moved to the new forum? Or will it depend on whether the creator of that thread makes an account for the new forum? Scrolling through the list of nominated threads, I'm seeing several threads where the original author hasn't posted anything in years, but the threads remain very active. I'm so sad that we'll be losing these forums. I've only been here since 2022, but this place feels like home. I hope the new forums feel the same way, but I'm not so sure anything will. These forums are a piece of history.

    We Simmers have moved forums a couple of times and we always seem to manage to make it a homey feeling for all. <3 I think the only somewhat scary move was from the BBS as it was such a big change from what we were used to. But then the jump from Sims to Sims2 was a big change as well and turned out amazing and so was the forum in the end.

    Change can be good especially when its an improvement and I feel this is going to be one of them.

    Updated some of my older "Let me check and get back with you" posts.

    @Simmingal Polls are in the works, but likely won't quite be ready by the time EA forums launches.

    These forums are showing their age, and are no longer representative of the community experience we wish to share with you. After careful consideration, we have decided to close The Sims Forums by July 2024 and replace it with a new forums site - to be called EA forums - going live this July.
    I must ask seeing as we're getting a newly updated community experience please tell me the new forum will have a dark mode? May the day of a bright white screens be nearing an end the future is now.

    I hope users will be able to choose. Accessibility-wise, it's best to have both. Some people with astigmatism and other vision issues struggle with dark modes, so white screens going away would be a problem.

    I have astigmatism and the result is night-blindness. You know your eyes are suffering when you mistake a chicken in your game for a pile of horse dung -- until it suddenly moves!

    Oh look, The Sims Community is covering this!

    It makes me glad that The Sims Forums isn't in the dark 100%. I'm still wondering what the new site is going to look like... Any sneak-peeks?

    We got that trophy like a CHAMPION!
    Fell asleep right on a jet, we gone.
    Big rings just like a CHAMPION!
    No TSA, hop on a jet, we gone.
    etc.

    Happy to be be in the Community Connections Program, too! When I studied the Sims 1 manual on the tram back home, I'd never guessed how much time I'd invest into not just this game, but in everything around it. I'll do my best to spread around at least some of the energy that The Sims is giving me (and also the occasional useful tip) :)

    Unfortunately no doesn't seem like it 🤔
    I think its older song and it sounded more like some sports chant thing
    oh well maybe it'll remain a mystery
    today i learned theres way too many champion songs
