Take a Tour of the New Forums

Posted by Minraed on April 18, 2014 at 1:20 PM Comments comments (0)

Forums Update

It has been a long time coming, but finally we have had time to revamp the forums for a fresh start to a new era in Simatography. Behind the scenes the staff has been debating and rewriting, discussing and revamping the layout for the forums with the goal of making them easier to navigate and to find the things that you really want to find. Read below for a bit of a guided tour.

The biggest change to make note of is that we have opened up some sections for Sims 2 players and in preparation we have opened threads for the soon to come Sims 4 players too.


The green room is a term used in show business as the place where performers hang around before they are needed on stage. Our Green Room is a place for our members to start out before diving out into the forums. We recommend that everyone reads the MEMBER GUIDELINES HERE first, just to be familiar with how we roll.  You can also drop in and introduce yourself HERE.

The rest of what you find in the Green Room are threads for general discussions about gameplay and real life stuff.


Well, this section is self-explanatory really and there are no major changes. Within the next month, as we roll out promotions for our upcoming 10th anniversary, we wil clean up this section a bit more. We will also be reorganizing the downloads section to make it easier to find SIFF specific downloadable objects for your SIFF projects.


We have rearranged things a little bit so that you can find the challenges that you are looking for - now separated into Photography, Machinima and Mixed Challenges for Everyone. What is new and coming? 

Shutterbugs Photography Club will start up again soon with a new concept much like that of a real-life photography club. Watch for details soon.

100 Themes challenge is ongoing and going strong.

HAPPY - a machinima challenge has just been launched and there will be another new machinima challenge lauching within the next week or so.

Rockabilly Party is our current all talents challenge for everyone to enjoy.


We made a few minor changes here to allow members to share their projects in a more organized setup. It should be clear now where to post your project announcements. Don't be shy! We want to know what you are up to.


Once again a more organized approach to share and request custom content starting with a sectioin for our members to share their own handmade content.

WCIF - where can I find...   just ask for what you are looking for and surely someone has seen it out there, or perhaps a friendly creator would be willing to help you out

LWIF - look what I found... a place to share that fabulous find that you just don't want to keep to yourself


Well this is pretty obvious too. We all can use a little help at sometime or another. To be sure to avoid confusion we now have separate sections for Sims 2, 3 and 4 specific topics as more Sims 2 and future Sims 4 players join us.

Customer Service is where you can get help with anything relating to our website, and Classified Ads is a section for you to post your ads when you need help on a project, are looking for people to join you on an MEP, or if you are looking for voice actors for example.


We have a wealth of information and tutorials for everything from Machinima School, Photography Tips and tutorials on a number of creative and technical topics that will surely help you improve your art. Have a peek at what is there, you might be surprised.

So we do hope that you will find your way around before too long as we get a fresh start to a new era at Simatography together!
