Firstly, there are two ways of getting updates: e-mail notifications and forum notifications. You will be notified of any new posts out there.

Topic Bookmarking
Adding a topic to your favourite list is a handy way to have a quick access to your favourite or important topics. If you want to add a topic to your bookmarks, go to the topic and click 'Actions', choose 'Add to your bookmarks'. Now you can access the topic from your Favourites in your Profile. You can delete bookmarked topics there as well.

Topic Subscription
If you wish to get updates for a selected topic(s), you need to subscribe to it. In order to do this you need to go to the topic you wish to subscribe to and scroll to the bottom of the page. You will see a link that says 'Watch this topic for replies'. Click the link. Alternatively, you can add '?watch=topic' to the address of the topic. Now go to Notifications in your Profile. Tick e-mail or toolbar option under 'A new post in a watched topic'.
If you would like to unsubscribe, you can manage your watched topics in Topic(s) being watched section in your Profile.

Tag Subscription
You can follow a tag to receive notifications as well. If you want to follow a tag, copy the tag name and go to Tags in your Profile. Paste the name of the tag and click 'Follow a new tag'. Now go to Notifications in your Profile. Tick e-mail or toolbar option under 'A new post in a watched topic'.

Sharing Your Videos

If you are a YouTuber, you are welcome to share your videos and channel updates on Make My Sims Real. All you have to do is to create your own topic in Screenshots & Videos. As you can see, there are several sections there dedicated to each game. If you create videos about several of those, please create multiple topics and sort your content according to the game.

Creating Your Topic

Here are some tips on how to create your topic and make it attractive.

Your First Post. Your first message in the topic should be introductory. Tell us about your channel, how you created it, what kind of videos you make, what are your plans and so on. Don't invite users to watch your videos or subscribe straight away - it would be better just to tell them about your channel.
Posting Your Videos. After you've told us about your channel, feel free to share a couple of videos on the forum - use our 'Insert a YouTube video' feature. Please remember to tell the members what your video is about.

Do's and Dont's

Please don't about our Rules & Guidelines.

Joining The Usergroup

When you have a couple more posts on the forum and your topic is all set and done, you can join our YouTubers usergroup. Apply here.

Report function was designed to create automatic responses to rule breaking and other issues. It can be used in several ways:
— to report rule breaking on the forum
— to report broken images or links
— to edit messages and update information

Every post on the forum can be reported (unless the function is disabled). You can locate the button on your right-hand side.


When you click the button, you will be asked to choose a reason for reporting. There is also a box where you can write your comments if necessary.


When reporting a post, please choose an appropriate reason and write your comments if necessary. Then click the 'Save' button. Alternatively, you can use this code. X should be substituted by the number of a post.

Code:
http://www.makemysimsreal.com/report?mode=report&p=X
Once it is done, your report will reach the administration of the forum. Your reports are usually handled within several days. The decision making process may take more or less than that. You may also receive a PM from the administration regarding your report.

You can report other members' posts and your own (if you need to edit or update your post, but such function has been disabled). Please do not report your own posts unnecessarily.

Do not abuse the report function. Persistent abusers will have their report function access disabled and will receive a form of punishment.
