Default Have you ever made yourself on the sims?
Post your 'sims selfies' here on your thread complete with your traits, etc.

Also did you use any mods, etc?

I've attempted to make a sim of myself a few times. My latest result is now uploaded to the Exchange at the moment: http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail...assetId=8095751

I still consider her to be a bit of a "fail", but no one is perfect, lol! Now if I had Ambitions I probably would have given her the Dramatic trait seeing as I am a bit of an over-dramatic sometimes in real life.

Please do a little search next time before making a new thread, there is a thread about self-sims that was just made last week where you could have posted: http://www.modthesims.info/showthre...25#startcomment

People do not want to come on the forum and search for threads. Was it on the first page. If not ..Old news.

As opposed to the trend of necroing dead threads we're having recently? Yes, it's a trend now!

Oh yeah god forbid you'd have to do a bit of effort...

It was only on the second page and probably just there because people are keeping bumping threads from 1745 to the front page.

I guess my point is that some people are forum readers and like to browse through and read many threads and make replys to anything they are interested in or have an opinion on...and some people are more focused on one particular problem or thought they had and are not interested in spending a lot of time in the forum. Different strokes for different folks. There is not a thing wrong with having the same thought as another person. If you don't want to respond don't. The topic is clear by the title of the thread. I am sure the same topic has been discussed dozens of times on this forum. Just like most every single thread in this forum has been discussed before.

Nah, nothing wrong with having the same train of thought as someone else. There is something wrong, however, with clogging the forums with redundant threads and making it more difficult to navigate for everyone who isn't you, and then getting your undies in a bundle when someone gently reminds you of forum etiquette.

Do a search before you make a thread. If there's already a thread for your topic with recent replies, post there. If no thread exists, or if it's gone without a reply for a few weeks, make a new thread. It's not rocket surgery.

Besides that I detest these 300 page threads..No way I would read through a thread that long. Its nice to have subjects divided up into bite size chunks in my opinion. What is the forum hurting for thread space or something. DO you look through the 1000s of posts here to make sure that you do not repost a subject that has been posted before. NO you don't..Of that I am positive.

Yeah, I hate those 300 page threads, too. Except, the OP was referred to a 3 page thread exactly on the same topic that was last posted to 4 DAYS ago. And it has pictures, and everything.

Oh, and double posting is also kind of frowned upon around here, too.

Yes, yes I do...
Before I'll post a new subject I'll do a search if the same or a similar subject has been posted. If it has and the thread is fairly recent (i.e. less then 6 month old) I'll post there instead, if it's older I'll create a new thread.

You really shouldn't assume so much.

Oh, I prefer reading a 300-page thread rather than reading 300 single-page threads of the same topic. No way I could distinguish threads that many.

This thread has developed from a mere invitation for simmers to post their creations based on themselves to an argument about multi-threads on one topic. (Btw I'm the creator of this thread) I suggest that this is taken somewhere else. This is basically ruining the thread and draws the subject away from the real topic. I mean, when you click this thread you want to see others creations and not a bloody argument. No one wants to step into an argument. Next time personally message me. (which I'm sure you all can do)

Thank you, have a nice day.

Despite your opinions, the guidelines clearly state that duplicate posts are forbidden:

Quote:
14. Duplicate Posting: Do not start a new thread in a forum if an existing active thread already exists on the topic. Post to the existing one and only start a new thread if the subject matter differs from the original thread.


Source: http://www.modthesims.info/show...stingguidelines

If the OP had done a search before starting this thread, we would not even be having this conversation. The link that Axe Gaijin shared is the original thread on this topic so the polite thing to do would be to simply move the discussion over there, don't you think?

Is it time for coffee yet?

You do realize that a large number of threads are duplicates of the same discussion at an earlier time it could have been 6 months ago. But most Sims 3 subjects have been discussed before. Why is this polite. I do not understand why it is putting anybody out in any way whatsoever to have a clearly labeled thread that is your choice to click on in the forum. Is it I am not interested in this persons subject so it has no business being here. That is self serving. I just started posting here lately..And I find these gigantic threads that I have no intention of reading through. that is not user friendly. Actually nice subject matter. But who in the heck wants to read a 300 plus page thread. And when a person posts a thread like this person and is immidiately met by scolding instead of friendliness they lose their interest in having a conversation.

Anyway lets just drop it. It has become an argument and I do not wish to piss a bunch of people off. Its just my opinion.

No shit Sherlock? and how does that affect any of the things I've mentioned?
Are you just here to argue or what?

Which is why necro'ing old threads is also discouraged. However, this particular subject is being addressed in an up to date, reasonably short, 3 page thread that's active as of a few days ago. One with photos and discussions of techniques, which is what the OP was interested in. So directing them to that active thread is a way of helpfully guiding them towards a conversation they appear to have an interest in. Expecting folks to repost the same photos and stories in another thread is unlikely to foster good will and joy among posters.
