Pleased to say hi to you all. Although, I have to say I'm a little bit intimidated coming into a forum with so many long time members. I've been lurking for some time, reading all of the great stories. I actually just laid my hands on a copy of Sims 2 for the first time a couple months ago. I had played a litle bit of the first Sims and when this came out, I was planning to buy it, but for whatever reason, never did. I now own the core game and I'm addicted. I'm especially addicted to the idea of making my own stories. I'm working on one right now involving a sim I created and his life in Pleasantview. So anyway, I know I'm late to the party, but I think it will still be fun! Later.

Thanks for the warm welcome! And I won't forget to have fun! ;-) (and before you ask Peake1981, no, I don't speak German, I'm just adept at finding nifty free translation on the web, although if I was at home, I could ask my wife, who does speak some German.) Cheers!

Hi Whitesaber! Welcome to the Hullabaloo! Grin

Oh yes! If you write a story, please do post it! I'd love to read it! (I have an affinity for Sims stories. Does it show?)

That's a good point about how a forum with a bunch of long-time members can be intimidating. I've felt the same thing when visiting other boards. Maybe that's why the Hullabaloo is so quiet even though it has lots of registered members! Now I'm wondering what we could do to make everyone feel welcome. Thinking

Over at Insim they have a feature that nags you to make a first post and provides a link to the "Introductions" area. That makes it pretty obvious that you're welcome to post there. Then once folks get past the first post and the eleventy zillion "Welcome" messages, they feel like fambly!

There might be a mod to phpBB somewhere that does the same thing. Thinking

Maybe just a big note would do it. Like...

Hey! Welcome to the Hullabaloo! Don't be shy about posting here! We like it when people reawaken old threads, too! We're all Sims fans here, and that's enough to make us friends!

Lol, when I made that, my husband said, "Isn't 3 hours an excessive amount of time to put into a joke?" However, with the number of times I've dragged it out and posted it, I think it was pretty good return on my 3 hour investment!
