I am pleased to announce a (very overdue) new feature here on MTS - blue ribbon icons! See? Aren't they cute?
Users who have won a blue ribbon will get the little icon showing up under their name along with any other icons they have earned. You can see one under my name, above my avatar.
How do you get a blue ribbon? Currently, there are three ways:
Won a contest: If you have won first place in a contest, you can have a ribbon!
Hosted at least 3 successful contests: If you've run 3 or more contests and they've completed without any problems, you get a ribbon too!
Had a star at Sims Community: Back when the community forums were separate as Sims Community, users could earn a star icon for winning a contest, hosting 3 contests, having a featured story, or having a featured movie. When we merged the community forums, we intended to add this feature back in, and over time, we just plumb(bob) forgot. We're terribly sorry for that, and would like to thank user Ghost sdoj for continued gentle reminders that we needed to do this.
Currently, adding the ribbon is not automated, so we must set it manually per user. If you have earned a ribbon by doing one or more of the above three things, please let us know by requesting your ribbon icon here: Ribbon, please!
We hope you enjoy this small but fun feature on the site! Happy simming!
I thought it was some kind of catch-22. You can only run a contest if you've successfully run a contest? lol
I wanna ribbon! You know people were screaming for a foundations contest for TS2 as well as 3. I think we should be allowed to use anything you can get HERE at MTS to build your house. That will encourage people to make and share more stuff here and give the makers incentive to build stuff where they can see what people do with it. All contestants are required to link to the page where the content can be downloaded by others! :D
I have both TS2 and TS3 and all EPs and SPs. I can volunteer to make the base lots or fixer upper houses.
Ok. I am starting a contest. I need 2 more judges before I can submit the contest for approval. This contest will to be see who can create the most interesting retail shopping collective. TS2 first, and if it's popular, for TS3
