Requests & Where are the forums? - A small guideAm I posting in the right forum?
Sometimes, especially if you're new, the site can be considered a maze and trying to find the right forum to post things in can be difficult, but! We've got you!
What happens if I post it in the wrong forum?
Sometimes accidentally posting something in the wrong place just happens. Maybe you had a topic where it fits in more than one place and confused you on to where to post it. However, if that happens, out of love of course, we do move these threads to the right place. So if you're posting a Help related question in General just to get more views, unfortunately we'll have to move that one too for you
If it is an occurring thing however, and it's definitely clear that you know where your posts go but just keep posting it in a specific thread where it shouldn't go, we can give you a warning for forum abuse. Not only is it that the forums are being kept clean but also because this could annoy fellow members who also post and use the same forum!
What about requesting?
Requesting itself means whether you're about to post if someone could:
This, however in itself is not allowed unfortunately. And probably will never. Mainly because it has gone wrong plenty of times before and decided that requesting won't be a thing anymore. Therefore, any post that is being posted in any of the forums mentioned above WILL be deleted.
If requesting is an occurring thing, the same as with ignoring people's guidance in posting things in the forums, you will get a warning for doing so... Please don't try us :P
But... I really want that thing!
While posting requests here on MTS is against the rules, there are a few sources that you can go to:
NOTE: Do keep in mind that if you post anything 'request-y' related, your post WILL be deleted.
Use Descriptive Thread Titles!
Use a thread title that describes in a few words what you are discussing, so people know what the thread is about. However, don't make titles like "My sim just got himself a boat and got eaten by a Kraken, pics in the post!" and then having little to zero description. In this case you'd want to have "Sim eaten by kraken?!" or something in that content with a nice story in your description so it's much easier to discuss whatever happened in your game
No hate threads on specific games
That being for example: 'the sims 4 sucks! Who's with me?!'. in the sims 4 general forum. Or anything about any of the games. People usually talk about their favourite moments in their preferred games or discuss the gameplay, so making a thread like this is not only unnecessary, but just rude.
No file sharing/promoting your CC
There shouldn't really be a reason for you to upload files in the general forums (Exception for pictures of course). If you happen to be in a situation where you do share files, make sure it's not a reupload of anything, Store items, Someone else's or your Mods folder, or anything against our Site rules
You might have made some awesome CC for everyone to check out, though the best place for this would be to upload this through our Upload Wizard We're a download hosting site after all, no need to use the forums! If you made CC that you uploaded on Tumblr, Patreon, wordpress or any kind of link where you host your downloads, please do NOT use this forum for promoting. These sorts of posts will be deleted as they are considered as spam.
