Does anyone else think that Sims & Modeling should be two separate categories?
ALL the time I see cute/random/themed picture threads get moved to Sims & Modeling from General Discussion and totally and completely buried within minutes by the ~7,583,864,154 ♥♥♥ modeling ♥♥♥ contests and their endless bumps.
I'm starting to not want to bother posting pictures because they get moved to S & M and die. If you don't participate in those modeling contests (and don't want to) then that forum is pointless. 95% of what is posted there is for contestants.
I'm not trying to say these contests are bad and I'm not saying that SOME people don't like browsing that forum - but I have zero interest in them and I'm sure a lot of people feel the same. I don't see why I should have to pick through all those posts and pages to find the non-modeling related picture threads. There are several of these and they are quite entertaining to post in and view. But once they get moved to S & M, most threads just get ignored and die - and I'm assuming this is because (majority) of the people in that forum aren't interested in regular pics threads, and because people that ARE interested in them (GD people), don't go to Sims&Modeling (for reasons I stated above).
I love picture threads - random ones/themed ones/cute ones. I love to see screenshots my fellow simmers took and I like to share mine. I like to see new simmies, new families, new babies..how they aged, how they died, and the adventures they had in between..
BUT I don't want to scroll through 500 threads about applications and assignments to do it. I don't want to scroll through endless bump after bump of people trying to promote their thread. And what would be the point anyways? The thread is dead by that point.
I never thought I'd be one to start a thread begging EA to do something when they probably won't even read it. But this is very discouraging and annoying.
So please EA FOR THE LOVE OF SIMGOD - separate those categories.
Obviously the Modeling thread is a good thing as evidence to its popularity, but the popularity should make it a dedicated thread. One of my threads was moved there, but fortunately many simmers bookmarked otherwise it would have disappeared forever.
