Challenge Forum GuidelinesAt present, this forum contains a lot of stuff which really shouldn't be here (and possibly shouldn't be anywhere), so these rules are intended to help you figure out whether or not your thread should go here.
Is your thing a contest?
If you want to run a competition where other players build houses, make sims, take pics or do something else simmy, submit entries before a set deadline, and then you and/or a group of judges give them scores and eventually announce a winner - that's a contest. Please post your contest in the Sim Contests forum.
Challenges should have
Sim challenges are a way of playing which is a bit different from normal play, which present a set of interesting and unusual challenges, and which you can do well or badly at.
We don't have "requirements" for challenges, so if you have a challenge which is missing one or more of the following elements but it still works as a challenge, that's totally fine. However, most challenges will have the following:
You don't have to follow that format exactly, but any challenges which are patently not challenges will be archived.
A challenge is not a story
Challenges give the player a scenario, some rules to follow, and something to work towards. How the player and their sims get from scenario to goals is up to them. If your challenge is so specific that you're telling players what their sims should do, in what order, who they should interact with etc. - that doesn't belong in this forum. If you're enjoying the story in your own game, why not take a few pics to narrate it, and post it in the Sim Stories forum?
We do have a few other rules which you should bear in mind:
With that said, enjoy!
