Hello I'm Lucy (or at least that's my simmer name),

I'm playing Sims 2 only and I mostly build, that is whenever I actually load the game and not just download even more content Grin
Been playing for many years, 10 at least probably more but often pause for long stretches of time. I have all the EPs/SPs and did so from the beginning so I don't know how it is not to have them.

Found this forum just recently on the hunt for some CC, I like the idea to tag things although I'm not sure a forum with having to scroll through all the posts is a good choice for this project...

Well, not sure what else to say, pretty much said most in the other thread of what kind of simmer I am.

Thanks for reading,
Lucy

HI @Lucydique. I love to build as well, it's amazing to see another builder on the forum. Welcome!

I like the idea to tag things although I'm not sure a forum with having to scroll through all the posts is a good choice for this project...

Could you please explain what you meant here? Thanks. User feedback is important to me.

Hi Aileen and thanks for the welcome,
I just saw you are from Scotland that's my favourite country! It's been so long ago that I visited I really hope I will go back there one day!

What I meant was that collecting the downloads in a forum with just post after post is a lot of scrolling and you don't really have an overview. It would be nicer to have kind of a gallery view for it. Example like leefish community finds or Clutter database they do something similar with collecting and organizing existing downloads by linking to them. Even default database doing it in a gallery kind of way.
So basically they fit more on a page with those previews and the description is only seen after clicking so you don't have to scroll so much and I think it looks more organized. I personally like the leefish idea best cause it has filters too.

All of these are my personal preferences, I have no clue how hard it would be to do it and I don't wanna tell you how to run your forum. I just love the idea of trying to collect the things spread out over the web and organize them by type. When I was new to simsdownloads I only ever went to MTS because everything else was too overwhelming and there I could just choose the category I needed. Now so many things are on tumblr, livejournal and dreamwidth and it's driving me crazy if they don't even tag the posts. I know I should be glad to find so many things for absolutely free but I just wish they would all organize it way better Grin

I kinda wanna join some place that is doing this work but so far I always found something I didn't like or that was missing. I even thought about starting a wiki only for CC-finds but I don't like the idea of starting something new if so many others already started something similar. I wish there was a way to collect&organize it all just the way MTS is doing it with categories AND tags AND searchfunction AND related links AND recolors while all being previewed in a gallery with several columns&rows.

Ok as you can see I thought about this a lot I hope I didn't write too much nonsense now but if I re-read my post one more time I'm probably not gonna post it at all Crazy

@Lucydique Thank you for your feedback though. We're just a forum, so it's not possible to implement this structure, unfortunately.

Me too! That's why I created this forum. Maybe you'd like to join me in this? Smile I'd be very happy to have a like-minded person. I know the system is not perfect, but it's something.

I've been to Germany once, but I only visited Bavaria. My husband and I want to go someday, but I don't know when it's going to happen.

Yeah I thought as much, I really wonder how leefish is doing it it looks like it's part of the forum but pretty sure they are real experts with that stuff over there since they even have a mybb support area :p
Well, no point in discussing this further.

I'm not good at focusing/staying on tasks. I could imagine to add the odd download here and there but I also often take very long hiatuses from the sims (several years long) and I'm feeling another one coming Cool

I actually grew up in Bavaria, but north of it so it was almost Hessen

Do you have facebook? I'd love to chat a bit more "directly" Wink My facebook is on my profile. I don't have ICQ

That section on Leefish is not a forum, it is more like a website. We are on a forum hosting, so there are not a lot of changes possible.

I do have Facebook, but I don't really use it that much.

Pity, I'm there all the time, would have loved to chat with you.

Say is there a way to see all the tags in use for this forum/it's downloads?
