Voting has closed for the Nov/DEC neighborhood group theme. With 10 votes the 'Show us your businesses' theme has won. Thank you all who voted! I will just continue to use this thread for further theme voting/updates. That way, people can re-nominate subjects that didn't win later.

So this theme is just to prompt members to update their hood threads and focus on something if they want. Show us existing businesses, maybe have a sim start a new business? Tell us the history of your businesses and you have two months so you can do it multiple posts if you want! We'd love to see what everyone has and how they play their businesses!


**Original Post***

I figured I would start a thread since many people have shown interest. The idea is to prompt members to update their threads that deal with theme i.e businesses, favorite sim couples, oldest family, etc and then we can see the different ways it's handled.

So throw a theme idea below and maybe if we get 5-10 I can get a poll so we can vote on it and then a theme can last maybe two months? Of course no one has to update with the theme if they don't want to, it's just a nice idea to prompt people to update if they don't know what do or need a motivation to play.

I nominate a business theme where you show off the business in your hoods, talk about the families that own them, how long they've been in service, what they do, etc.

Nominations List:

1. Show off your businesses
2. Hood Relaxation
3. Places of Culture
4. Largest Family (total number of sims in hood with same surname)
5. Weddings
6. Cult of Personality
7. Glass Slipper Effect (Couples)
8. Life of the Bachelor/Bachelorette
9. Vacations
10. Magic/Supernatural Elements in your hood

VOTE HERE (https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/5GVFMMF)

Voting will close Nov. 1st, 2017 - which gives you two weeks to vote. Please vote for your top 2 favorite themes. Thanks!

Relaxation in your neighbourhood.

How do your sims relax- where do they go and what do they do?

- Biggest family in your hood...
- Cultural places (Public library or Museum).

Would Biggest family be single unit or family name spread? (i.e. I have 6 sims in this one family and it's the biggest! vs. There are 15 sims total in the hood with this family name, so it's the biggest!)

Or would that be up to interpretation by whoever posts?

Sims in total with the same family name, like the Capps, Montys, etc.

Show off your businesses OR Weddings

I'm a bit biased though, have only recently started a new hood.

Cults of personalities: where you can step outside of your storytelling and explain more in depth background wise about how some of your sims became the sims they are and the decisions you made as the player to move them, or not into those directions. Or more of the psychological perspective behind your characters, as I've always been fascinated with that kind of thing.

Glass Slipper Effect: From beginning to end chronicle your best sims love story until it's happy ending....or not so happy ending

I vote for Businesses. This is my favourite.

I would do Weddings or Biggest Families too.

Biggest Families would be hardest I think.

I'll leave up nominations until next Monday or until we get 10 max and then set up a survey so people can vote for maybe their top two favorites :) What does everyone think?

Maybe we can show our best Single Sims, something like he(or she) is our Bachelor Sims... and show their dates or something like that...

These are some great theme ideas, and I would love to do any of them for my hood posts. Keep em coming!

yep! I put it down. I think that everyone in this group, or at least who has commented thus far have up to that specific EP :) One more slot!

I used to play with setup up to seasons for years before UC, that did not stop me to simulate vacations :)

All it needed was sleep at communitylot :)

How about magic in your hoods?

How about magic in your hoods?

Would this theme entail just magic or any supernatural element i.e. ghosts, grim reaper, aliens, vampires etc or just pure magic as in witches/genies?

All and any type of magic. It's rather fitting for Halloween :lol:
