Default Site Suggestions - State of the site - Where do you want to go from here?

Hi All,

Today I'd like to cover some ideas for the site, my thoughts, and generally get your input on how you think it's going, and where you want to go.

Historically, SXS2 was split off from MTS2 for the Adult orientated items including classical paintings and things of that nature. We've added some forums here and there, but generally it seems kind of quiet, and I'd like to change that. I know there is a huge amount of people out there either not liking the PG-13 ratings of other sites, or wanting to download quality adult content, or generally play the game how you want it to be played with as many adult related items as you wish.

What I've noticed very recently has been a kind of stagnation in terms of uploads as well as general forum usage. I know that partially this is becuase the Sims 2 as a game is 4 years old, but MTS2 still has an average of 80+ items in it's queue on any given day, and here it just seems to be a heck of a lot less, even though there is obviously a large number of people browsing and generally downloading.

As downloaders, you may have noticed a decrease in the number of available downloads. This is covered in the other site news "My stuff got tagged? Why!".

What I want to concentrate here is not the quality of downloads, but a general feeling on where you want the site to go. What kind of sections do you want to see? Would you prefer it setup more like MTS2? (Which we have started doing) or another way? Which forums get used a lot, and which don't? Are there areas you would like to see expanded? Are there any features you want to see that don't already exist?

I'd like to turn this seeming downturn around and make this one of the premier sites not just for adult content but also for discussion as MTS2 is for the "regular" game and S2C is for "regular" discussion.

So, if you have any thoughts, feelings, comments - please post here. Try and keep them positive - it serves nobodies purpose to say "This site sux! You sux!". After all, you guys and girls are the ones that use the site day to day, so your input is valuable.

Thanks for reading and for using SXS2! I'll try and do my best to reply to any specific comments or questions.

Regards
Delphy

We could do Sim Contests like on InSIM and InSIMadult and also picture threads where people can show off their naughty sims or extra pics from stories and I agree with dilly I'd like to see Q-Xpress back too.
The story threads are still very successful here.

i think the lack of [adult content creator's] really hurts the site.there seem's to be more posting for help and wcif questions that always seems to lead to another site more than any thing.it really hurt's when member's come here to ask for it and find it somewere else.then they seem to rely on us to point them in the direction of site's with more download's then they don't come back.and the general discussion area seem's to always be about moving a post to the proper location or locked thread's.these area's [in my opinion] are better for mts2 forum's than the adult forums.this may lead to less talk and more action.i have been a member here for a few year's now,at first it was the best site to browse and find things,now it seems to have turned into more of a chat forum and less of an adult download's site.i have seen new downloads stay on the first page for a month in fact there are still thing's on the first page uploaded on jan the 29th.and now that the download's must have the same quality as mts2,there will be even fewer upload's making it to the downloads area.My opinion [and i tread lightly] approve more download's,of all quality.then filter them as to how popular they are after 2 weeks.i/e if it is not downloaded 1000 time's after a 2 week period tag it then.more or less let the member's download to there standard's.as with a few of my [tagged] download's.they may have not been the best but there were none downloaded less than 3000 time's.all downloads differ in quality and alway's will.most creator's can't mesh or animate.nor have the resources to do so. i dont mean to let all junk into the site.just the better thing's that actually took time to create.not cut and pasted shirt's and stuff.i feel this would get more member's involved uploading again and out of the forum's.make them strive to create and not say i cant do that,it's not good enough

this is just my opinion........try it for a few month's to see what happens.if it does not work i will admitt defeat and bow before the community...lol

It might be interesting for creators of all kinds to know what people would like to see in their game. If a "request" or "suggestion" forum or thread exists, I can't say it's really easy to find.

Here I don't only mean the meshes and mods that only the most knowledgable members can create. Could be clothing, paintings, object recolors, or things like that. Something people might have seen in a movie, or elsewhere, that they'd like to see in their Sims game. They could post a pic. Then a creator could try to make it.

Yes, there is a request thread. For those that know how to mod. What about the countless others that can't do that? I can't mod or mesh worth a shit. But I can build lots, make wallpaper and flooring, create recolors, make posters and paintings, and thanks to a new video card, I can know create clothing.

But there is no where Simmers can request this stuff.

Honestly...how often do you really see a new mod on this site now a days?

Q-Xpress is a downloaders only tool - I would rather people concentrate on forums or actual ideas that would enhance your day to day usage rather than something thats only for downloading and nothing else.

After all, this site isn't only about downloads - although it could be, I would rather it not.

jazcmx, Why can't you request adult-related items in the request forum? Or are you talking more generally about non-adult things.

As I suggested earlier picture threads to show-off screenshots and contests.
How about asking some of the creators from mts2 and other sites to create stuff for this one

Me, me! *raises hand before realizing I'm not in school anymore*.

I know what alot of the writers want, if it's possible?

I know most writers, love the way the main site has stars and/or awards for really good story writing like, ta-da... Our moderator, Lp!

We all love her to death, and if anyone one deserves one, it would be she.

I'm sure you would know this, but it can be very challanging to write stories that draws folks in time after time. I think just one of LP's stories alone has had over 64,000 folks viewing it. I think it's amazing really.

It may be sad to a psychiatrist that we practically live here and love it, lol. But it is what it is.

And I think you are amazing for thinking about this section, because you're always fair.

We know you're retired and you are amazingly busy, but it would be so much fun to play with you once in a while... chat and what not.

Oh! You thought something else didn't you? Now you will be punished.

Thanks Delphy.

Hello, I think this is the first site I ever came to, I pop in from time to time, Good to see you hear jazcmx, always loved your work! I think some more creator's, like yourself should make more stuff, Like I will be uploading my adult content, Even thou Iam done at insimadult, I found that the picture's I had there brought many members,classy adult content! I hope I can be apart of what might bring change to this site!

*Pokes head round door slowly*

I have seen on other sites that they show who is on line at the time, I do think this does encourage persons to stay on and chat for longer, there is also a choice as well if you,d like to be anonymous so your name doesn,t show if you choose not to.

Just a thought good or bad, I don,t know

*Takes head back round door*.

Take me, tease me, go on Jasey baby leave me breathless.

The request forum could be easier to find. It could be mentioned/suggested on the Downloads page, where most people go, that way maybe we'd get more requests. I am not sure if everyone really uses the Site Map when they come here, creators and downloaders. Some might not even know a request forum exists. I didn't, and it's a while I come here.

It seems to me like if people think they can't request "simple" adult-related items in the request forum, it's because of the title, "Modding Requests". It might sound to people as it's the place where they should request things like Mods, Meshes or Hacks. I don't see any request there for the kind of items jazcmx mentions, like lots, clothing, paintings, walls, floors, recolors.

In your text, you mention the recent lack of submitted items by creators. You know, not everyone can code or work on meshes. It takes time to learn to do that, not all have that kind of free time on their hands. It doesn't mean we don't want to create. Then again, why create if there doesn't seem to be a demand for the type of items one can do?

Would it be possible to create a thread where people would be encouraged to post "easier" requests than animations or things like that?

I have been a member of the site for a while, and I loved it when new postings were uploaded. but after the uploads faded, I have just come back to get downloads that I have lost, and seen some new ones that I would like in my game. I personnaly think we need an array of iteams, and if a creator could do more stuff for the sims, or changes to where the sims have sex, like in a shower, or a couch or on the dishwaser, or washingmachine, one that would be nice is in the tub.. I also think there shoudl be a few more mods.

I myself would like to see things for guy on guy stuff instead of having to go to another site, I have a list of tons of sims sites in my favorites, and after awhile I just give up on looking, and look every few days to see if anything new.
Thanks a mill..

billielith explained it better then I would have, Delphy. He/she hit the nail right on the head.

Default What I want from this site.

Well, Honestly. I would like more of a diverse sims stuff. When it comes to making new sims to what sexual things they do and wear. I personally like the Chocolate women and would love to see more stuff for them like new attire or new sims to download with new hair styles and meshes. Add more jobs to download. Maybe new job rewards. I don't do any of this stuff so I don't know how hard it is. If it is hard then I am sorry for this post. This is just a reply to the message that is posted at the top off the screen. I hope that helped at all.

*smacks head* I've been a member here for quite a while, and I never knew there was a request thread. Like billielith said, I thought it was for only modding requests, not clothing, etc. Maybe have a seperate forum "Requests" and have different sections, i.e., genetic, clothing, lots, mods. Because I was unaware that the request thread was for everything, I put in a request elsewhere.

Like luna said, SS2 has become a very comfortable place for me. I came here originally to download some items, and learned that there is a wonderful community of folks here! Julie mentioned that the story threads are still very successful, and I would have to agree. I would love to see lp get a gold star or trophy or something for her wonderful stories, and it would be fun to have a nomination period every month for a fav. story thread.

I want to also take the time to say thank you, Delphy, for your hard work throughout your retirement. You rock!

If I start uploading stuff here for people to download, and I make alot, can we have Our own sections so members know where to look when they come here? It seems to be more easy to find creator's stuff!

Hem... not sure what you mean, but I think it's something we already have. Try clicking on my name, for example, you'll see my creations regrouped under my profile... if they're still here (they've been tagged, it seems).

But that's how it usually works. When you have creations on SXS2, you will see them on your profile page.

I agree with Melysa1973, I think separating the Request thread in sections could help too.

I think what worker means (and correct me if I'm wrong) is if you upload lots and lots of stuff, you would have your own "boutique" that would be featured on the home page.

I used to check in here a lot. But, the same downloads seem to be on the front page as before. So I leave thinking that no one is uploading anything new. I am not complaining about how quickly the modders can upload, I applaud them and their talents and their generosity for sharing their work with us. But lack of new downloads makes me leave a lot sooner than I would like to. I also like to read stories too. I check in sometimes to see if a new chapter has been written. Great stories guys!

Default requests

I just stsrted to use this site and I have to say I like it I would like a requests section this gives the creaters a little more of an idea what to do I have a few request over at insimadult and there is a lot of activity therso creators if you are looking for something to do why don't you look in there and see if there is anything worth doing although alot of the cretors seem to be busy with stuff at the other site so that may be a problem
