You actually don't need to do it that way. The old pre-Nightlife phone option to invite another sim to a lot still exists, you use Call.../Transportation and then you can select it from the menu.

RATS! Now the other lots are doing the same thing. I've left a question with creator Marka93


What you do with the error log is you post it so that someone else can look at it. Or you give it to What Caused This, if you like.

I think what sturlington meant (and certainly what I meant) was when you're already away from home, and you want another Sim to come and join you on a community lot. As far as I can see, the only way to do that is with a mobile 'phone (cellphone). I see no logical reason why it shouldn't be possible with the payphone too. After all, it's what we'd all have done before the 1990s.

So not really ts2 but as I almost exclusively frequent the ts2 section of this website--

I just realized it says Space Pony underneath my picture now. Wonder when that happened. What does that mean? What was it before? What will it be next?

Space Pony is a title you get after X amount of posts and is a very short-lived (if you post much at all) title. I don't know how many posts you can make before it changes, but not many. It's kind of a favourite for that reason.

hypothetical but stupid question: if I hid all the game hairs in favor of custom townified hairs only, will townies/npcs generate with the custom hairs in my folder? Like, if I load in Don Lothario, will his hair disappear and a custom hair will replace it, or will I have to update it myself via mirror?

Yes @CASnarl If you are a Space Pony it's very rare, and customary to have a screenshot to remember it by. It only lasts for about five posts!

I remember you took my screenshot when I was space pony

And so my random question: Is there any way to go back to university and not be graduated already? Tried aging them down to teens but they were already graduated when they arrived.
Also does anyone know by which factor it gets harder to earn each skill by each skill point? Trying to make my "everything major" more balanced. Earning the 9th and 10th point is slower than the first 3 points so ... Would be good to know.

Do your Sims already have a degree? I aged my Sim down using the fixed genie youth wish and they carried on with their studies just fine, having dropped out the first time.

Does this have any effect, ever? I call the cops because I want to get rid of the guy without using cheats, but they just say "yeah, sure" and don't show up to arrest him or anything. I've never had playables be pickpocketed though - maybe the foul play report has some effect if you want to avoid physically assaulting the guy, but still want to get your money back.

I believe it stops him from showing up on community lots for a few days, that's all.

Yes, I know about that but I believe that calls the taxi as well. This way, they can drive their own car. I also just find it easier to use the cellphone.

Also yes, what AndrewGloria said. Sometimes they go to one community lot to do something, then move on to another one and then want to invite someone out. Sometimes they want to see who's there first. There are all sorts of situations. I routinely buy all my Sims cellphones. They're ubiquitous just like in real life. They buy them through Monique's hacked computer instead of going to a shop.

I knew someone had written down the forum titles before (I had asked the same question, ):

The two lowest are Test Subject and Lab Assistant, just like the Science career, at least between 65-88 posts you can be both somehow? At least up until 207 you are a Lab Assistant. Afterward you become a:
Field Researcher, with at least 294-399 posts
Instructor (490-619), is the Science Teacher in the career
Forum Resident (634-700), the Project Leader in the career
Inventor (884)
Scholar (931-1,561)
Top Secret Researcher (1,570-1,993)
Theorist (2,099-2,213)
Alchemist (2,529-2,962), the Mad Scientist of the career
and (finally?) Mad Poster (3,105-8,301). There are some moderators and ex-moderators with 20,000+ posts and different titels, but that may just be their personal one.

It's got pretty much everything except that elusive Space Pony title. So, CASnarl, it looks like you'll be an Instructor next, if you do decide to post again.

I think the Mad Scientist is actually the Mad Poster title. I don't see the Spacy Pony one, and I'm pretty sure Science Teacher title doesn't exist? Unless they mean Instructor <=> Science Teacher...

Pretty sure the Mad Poster one continues beyond at least 10-15,000 (as proven by other fellow non-moderators with high post counts...). Unless of course there's a hidden tier somewhere beyond that.

If it started at 3100-ish, I think I've been a mad poster for quite some time...

So when do we get paid?

As for the number of posts, my personal number is (after this): 5,296

So does this signify anything? I rather doubt it.

I think Mad Poster is the highest tier--if there was another tier, Jo definitely would have gotten it before. (Jo's probably the most prolific poster on the board.) Though she's got a custom title now, right? And Peni's post total is nothing to sneeze at either--15,952 but still a Mad Poster.

As far as I have seen (and yes I did check Simsamples post count as I believe they are closest) I still hold the record of most posts. I don't know how I do it since I only post 0-3 times per day I would say, even though it says I average 5. As of today, I have 28,561 posts! And yes, I have a custom title, you can set those as a moderator.

Post count use to be under our pictures but now you have to check post count on people's profiles.

Does community time project not work in uni or is it just because i sent Ashley Pitts to a Pleasantview community lot not an SSU community lot? It's back to the time is was when he left. I just tried with Cyd Roseland and it said he'd be home in an hour so it does indeed work

Edit: Aww, I'm not a Space Pony anymore (I am in my heart!!!)

You can click the + next to people's names, over their profile picture. No need to go to the profile page.
It shows how long the person has been a member, post count, achievement and thanks counts (if available), plus a follow button (if available).

CLT does not work in Uni, due to the fact (as Pescado once said more or less) that Uni is in it's own universe, where the time is separate from any other time in Sim Nation. Thus do not expect to have it work in Uni at all.

@joandsarah77 I think HystericalParoxysm had the post count title for a long time, but you have overtaken her!

For people who have been on this site since 2004 I think the actual post count must be a lot higher- as of course there was a community forum at one time too (Sims2Community) and a lot of posts were split off when Sexysims became a seperate site. Also as a moderator a lot of posts and tutorials I made were archived or turned into wiki articles, I can't access them at all so I assume those are gone from post count as well. So maybe Jo and I actually have a million posts!

Actually the post count should be higher anyway because I think the site had a couple of resets along the way, and I think that might have reset them. I do remember distinctly that there was a huge outage one year where people were asked to contribute any downloads of submitted downloads from their own stash to replace them.

But I fondly remember the year where we had an "April Fool's day" and the entire site had turned into Olde English. Also the one where our titles were Butterfly or Llama. Fun times!
