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:
  • Make something for you
  • Update a specific mod
  • Fix a problem with a specific mod
  • Anything that sounds demanding-y

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:
  • Creators who take requests - Keep in mind that creators in this list have feelings (Yes they do!) so be extra nice! Also, Some of them might actually have forgotten to remove themselves from the list so always check their active days as well. This is NOT a requesting page however!
  • Some creators that do take requests - If a creator stated in their policy, their journal or 'about me' section that they do take requests (And really, only if they did. If not, do not message them to ask if they do). Then feel free to ask them. Also check their active dates as well.
  • The internet - Sometimes CC that you really want can be easily found by an easy google search. Else you can always use our Where Can I Find forum but as long as you don't request anything. There are also various sims sites that do have request forums so that might be worth a shot too!

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.

Sim Stories Rules & Guidelines
Hello and welcome to the Sims Stories Forum!

The Official Rules for this forum are as follows. If you post a story or comment on a story here, it is understood you have read and agreed to the following rules. Feel free to PM any of the Stories Forum Moderators or an Administrator if you have additional questions or concerns.


Pictures This forum is for Sims stories, so all story threads must be accompanied by in-game Sim pictures. If you are writing a general story without sim pictures, you can post it in our Creative Corner forum instead.

New Story Threads are Moderated: When you submit a new story, it will need to be approved by a moderator before it's posted. We check often, and it is not hard to get a story approved - we are very understanding of beginning writers, but we do expect you to try to write a nice story. Stories are not "this is what happened in my game today" with pictures and captions, but with an actual attempt at telling a true story.

Introductions: Do not post short introductions - that is, introductions must have in-game pictures and as much effort as if it were a first chapter of your story - consider simply writing a first chapter rather than an introduction instead.

If you start a story, FINISH IT! If you do not update your story for 1 month, it will be locked for 48 hours, and then after that, moved to the archive. Please PM a moderator of the Stories forum to have your thread unlocked or moved out of the archive. We do not delete old stories - just archive them, so if you leave and come back and your story is gone, fear not - it can be recovered.

Off-Site Stories Please feel free to share your off-site story via a link in your signature, but stories posted here must be actual full stories, not advertising for them posted elsewhere. You may post your story both elsewhere and here, but you need to post your full text and pictures here if you want your own thread in our stories forum.

Story Limit: Writers are usually allowed to have one story thread in progress at a time. Please do not try and get around this rule by starting a story and deleting it when you simply lose interest in writing it. Try writing out several chapters (or even the whole thing!) before you post it if you tend to have a hard time finishing things. You may request to start a second story, but it will be allowed only on a case-by-case basis.

Completed Stories: Stories which are completed will be moved into the "Completed Stories" subforum. Please edit your story thread status tab to "Completed" once the story is finished.

PG-13 Rating: Occasional swearing doesn't kill anyone, but excessive swearing or vulgar language is not allowed in stories (nor is it allowed anywhere else on this site). This also means there should be no inclusion of pictures of blatant nudity or strong sexual themes. That means no female nipples and/or crotches or butts of either gender; they need to be covered at least as much as a swimsuit would cover. If your story is mostly about sex and/or violence, it's not appropriate here. Please treat controversial topics with care and sensitivity - stories can be removed for inappropriate content at moderator discretion.

Adding a New Chapter: To add a chapter to your story, click "View comments" and scroll down to the Quick Reply box. Click "Go Advanced". In this screen, you can do one of two things: if you type your reply and give it a title, it will show up as a new chapter. If you type your reply and don't give it a title, it'll show up as a comment. If you just use the Quick Reply box, your post will be a comment.


Please give helpful comments! Readers are urged to comment, give compliments or constructive criticism to the author of the story. However asking 5 million times when the author is going to update is annoying and unnecessary. Authors never have to tell when they are or are not going to update, so do not harass them because you are just impatient. Also, try and keep general chatter to a minimum - remember, you can PM someone if you're holding a conversation with just them that others don't necessarily need to read.

Constructive Criticism: You may not like everything about a particular story, and not all comments have to be gushing and glowing. But please remember that the author has feelings, and to phrase your comments in a way that is not hurtful or hateful. Rude comments will be removed and the poster dealt with.
