Hey Simmers –
The Sims 4 launch is REALLY close, like September 2 close– and we are pleased to confirm that we are upgrading the forums in preparation.
With the upgrade comes some downtime. We want to minimize the downtime as much as possible but we do ask that you have patience as we get this moving.
We will begin the upgrade this FRIDAY (August 8, 2014), at around 09:00am PDT.
What this means is that the forums will be read only (you will not be able to post or start new threads) for several days starting from that time.
We will keep everyone updated via Twitter and Facebook when the forums come back up.
We also want to let you know that with the upgrade, one piece of your profile will not be activated. You will need to choose or create a new avatar. Everything else will remain the same.
Thanks for your patience everyone. Looking forward to seeing what you think about the upgraded forums once they are live.

So, does this mean the Sims 3 Forums will just expand to accommodate the Sims 4, and there will be no separate forum?

Very good question. Maybe they will improve the Search function so you can actually find what you are searching for ..... *pause* .....  ROFL

Are you feeling well? You might have a fever since you're babbling nonsense. Suspect

Actually you could be correct. At least partially. I just now read a post on Twitter that the Sims3 forums are being moved to TheSims.com What will that mean as far as formatting and such? I do not know. There was mention in the announcement that we would need to choose a new Avatar. I was planning on just using the one from the Sim I uploaded. But it sounds like that may not be possible.
In light of the transitions I have already started a clean Sims folder to do one final download of all my store content. This will be saved on an external drive away from my active folder I am playing now. Also going to be sure I have good copies of my favorite lots/Sims etc as well. Should the exchange go away at some point I will have them tucked safely away.

Yes that's a good idea. It's not just the downloads you need to take care of I think, it's some files in other folders as well isn't it? ... some missing x or something? I don't remember right now.

I hope someone with some knowledge about that can help. It's a part of EA's work against piracy probably. I could just make a gamefolder for Sims3 and then copy all files to a backup perhaps.

At the top right is a button that says English.
When I poked it there was a drop down with multiple languages.
I was at lunch when I posted before or I would post a snippet.
If that does not take you to another page it could be it is not yet ready.

It took me to norwegian, but not back again to english. Could be another option I haven't found yet.

I  sure hope there will be some more information forth coming on how to navigate the new forum   confused  because I'm lost with trying to figure out where everything is.  Where is "My Page, Friend Request" and how to find them.  You practically need a road map to figure it out.  Maybe a (You Are Here Beacon   :GrnPlmBob: )   Laughing

The My Page and Studios etc are still at http://www.thesims3.com/
Not sure for how long though.


Edit: Also I do not see a way to make a signature to attach to posts.

There is a character limit on posts so you can't just keep updating and adding new info.  I tried to edit my Caw FAQ thread and got an error message saying it was over 20k over the character limit.  Suspect


I'm not happy  No

I guess we'll have to learn shorthand.

The Forum Upgrade / Migration has been completed. Yes ... Migration.
You can still go to http://www.thesims3.com/ for the EA Sims 3 Store, your Sims 3 wall and studio and such.
The Community tab at the top has links to both the old Sims 3 Forums and the new Combined 'The Sims' Forums .
The previous version can be viewed but nothing can be added or altered.
