1.Answer the question: How did you get started with The Sims?
2.You may make two nominations with links to WishLists (yourself and a friend -or- two friends)
3.There will be no limit to how many times a person can be nominated by others.
4.All persons nominated must have at least 500 sp worth of items on their WL

*Lottery will close on Sunday, May 5th at noon (EST).
Winners will be chosen with a randomizer and will be posted on this post shortly after.*


1st Place – 500 sp worth of items Emmatigerlily nominated by wangtastic
Love this. Emmatigerlily wanted to donate her winnings to the person who nominated her. Then wangtasitc said to IGNORE EMMA AND GIFT HER ANYWAY! I LOVE kind-hearted and friendly people! You two are such sweet souls! You both ended up with a 500sp prize. Thanks for being awesome!

2nd Place – 100 sp worth of items zhaitana nominated by LilyParker

About your hostess - My Simming Beginnings

Howdy! I'm a relatively new Simmer. I never played TS1 or TS2... I don't really know why I even bought TS3! I loved playing with dolls as a little girl, and I'm a total computer nerd... so I thought it'd be fun to try out.

I only began playing in October of 2011 with the base game on my sad little laptop. That Christmas, I decided to add a couple of EPs (while holding my breath each time I booted up!). By summer, I knew I was addicted to TS3 and had found my new hobby. I invested in a fresh and fancy PC and quickly collected every EP and SP. It wasn't long before I began attacking the store - worlds, premium content, the occasional set... I'm now well on my way to completing the collection. And I'm loving every minute of it!

I hopped over the the forum side of the site when I installed Showtime (I blame my forum addiction on SimPort ). So, I've been around for a bit... lurking here, posting there, finding some kind hearts to surprise with a gift or two... I've quickly learned that this place is full of sweet souls to get to know. I've been a part of many forums... on many topics... and I usually see an overwhelming amount of snark and rudeness. But, not around here! Granted, you'll always find someone trying to stir up drama, but for the most part, I see friendly folks trying to sweeten up this world a bit. And, goodness, we could certainly use some of that!

I'm an adult player. I'm a married elementary school teacher with no children of my own (yet) to impact my cash flow... so I enjoy spending (too much) money on my hobby - Sims! I've found one of the most satisfying ways to do so is by surprising someone else with a little bit of Sim heaven. Maybe it helps me justify how much I'm spending on myself!

Question: How did you get started with the sims?

Answer: I started with the Sims 1 waaay back when it came out. I was hooked and had ALL OF THE EXPANSIONS. I just love the humor and uniqness. Some people say that being a gamer that plays the sims doesn't make you a gamer...I say phooey. I used to spend all my spare time on the sims which is what a gamer is lol. XD

I would like to nominate, (TheFairyBug)

I am running out of SP soon and can't reload for a while so I need some people to do my bidding for me. lol

Hi Stafuny Nice to meet you and thanks for hosting!

I started with TS1. I got to know the game because friends played it and when we met we sometimes played it together.

I'd like to nominate:

Hi Stafuny, what a lovely idea and lottery.

My Simming beginnings:
Well I am very new to the simming worlds, I never played sims 1 or 2. My husband brought me TS3 as I am on a long recovery from illness and I am housebound most days. So while my children are at school and to stop me going crazy at 4 walls he got me TS3 to distract me. And well lets say it has worked well.
And like the game it self, this forum is just as addictive, and with plenty of friendly and lovely people on it. I don't have many friends and the ones I do have don't all have WL yet.

so can I Nominate
and myself:

Thanks again for hosting..

So how did I get started... hmm
well I knew the sims exsisted (didn't know about it being both a 1 and 2) I needed something to ocpi my mind, and I wanted to play computer, with the lack of any new games like ceasar I look at sims... I found that in a few months sims 3 would be released... so I waited.

I was hooked from the start!!!

I found the store but at that time the system was down (for almost a year) not allowing danes to buy points, and with no cards in the shops at that time store was out of tutch.

the forums I started with the Danish, not fun. almost nothing and most help linked to English sites anyway! any topic just remotely the same as an other was deleted/loced by a mod (even the help me with this glitch) despite the search function not working.
In the English forum I found practical help and fun challenges... and suddenly people trowing stuff at me....

when it was possible to buy points I started throwing back (really EA missed many money on having the buggyness when I had the money.... to gift even more than I have now)

1 day after a gift I went looking for a long shared thank you thread that was in GD... but it was gone then I found GG had been made.... I moved in.... and my post count exploeded....

hmm I like to nominat...

Question: How did you get started with The Sims?

Answer: Well, my sister's had just bought sims 2, and I was the annoying little sister, standing behing them watching the screen. I had never seen something like sims before. I loved it. I could WATCH them play for hours. I always wanted to play though. When my oldest sister went to a week long summer camp, she said I could play well she was gone, I LOVED IT! After that I always begged to play, my mom never bought the game for me though. Then, we were moving to France for a year when sims 3 came out, and my mom was searching for something us to do on the overnight plane, so she bought as all sims 3. My sister's have both lost there games now, and now they beg me if they can play. And that's the story of how I got addicted before I even played XD

I would like to nominate,

thanks for hosting

Hi Stafuny, thanks for holding this lottery. I enjoyed reading about your story, too.

I've told this tale on this website before, but I don't mind repeating myself . I was reading Entertainment Weekly magazine many, many years ago. In this issue they had a preview of upcoming game releases. One of them was the original sims.

I thought it looked like so much fun. I tore out the article and stuck it on the refrigerator with a note to my husband saying "I want this!!"

I got it the day it came out, and I've been hooked ever since to the Sims, Sims 2, and Sims 3.

I would like to nominate:


Thank you.

Thanks for hosting

How did you get started with the sims?: Like you, I'm a relativity new Simmer. I saw the Sims 3 ads on TV (I was still a little young to play) and thought that it would be cool to create a sim; essentially play play "dress up" (A game I loved when I was littler). I bought several Sims apps from the App store in 2012 and loved them-the idea of playing a god and controlling everything amazed me. My dad showed me the actual Sims 3 trailer and during a Black Friday sale about six months ago I bought the game for $8. I've been hooked ever since.

My nominations are:

Dream_Walker27: (It's pretty long and I figured she could use a little help narrowing it down )
