neighbourhoods: Join the SUN!
18, 2002 - by Simbille Ballong
residents want to share experiences and learn about the norms and ideals
of the Sim City community at large.
February 15th 2002 many of the Simmerville neighbourhood residents gathered
to discuss how we can achieve more frequent contact with other Sim City
neighbourhoods. Although most of us are way too busy to physically visit
other neighbourhoods, we can still interact a lot through the web by establishing
contact, sharing experiences, forming theme groups and learning about the
existing norms and ideals of the Sim City community at large.
now invites all neighbourhoods and suburbs to join as members of the Sims
United Neighbourhoods (SUN). No charges or obligations involved.
the SUN boarder consists of 3 concerned Simmerville residents; SimBille
Ballong, Bitchy la Beth Hanssen and Steve Grumblin.

registration, you will have to fill in a web form including some essential
information on your neighbourhood. Please note that your neighbourhood
must have a contact person, eventually 3 concerned residents of your neighbourhood
can form a core group, still including one official contact. Your SUN contact
can be replaced as often as your neighbourhood wants.
of participating neighbourhoods will benefit from the following:
to gathering information and statistics on the Simmish culture and day-to-day
life. This will take you a couple hours monthly, but for the intellectual
Sim, this can just as well be a hobby bringing a new meaning into one's
life, and a community aspect into your neighbourhood.
on the SUN web page, eventually with a link to your neighbourhood's own
web site. NOTE: we're talking neighbourhoods, not families.
(as a group) will exclusively be asked to participate to SUN's monthly
to bi-monthly SimCity wide surveys (individuals normally to be excluded).
(as individuals) can post their experiences and suggestions as following-ups
to featured themed articles here on the Simmerville web. In this way most
of your residents will find stuff matching their interests. These are not
BBS/newsgroups, but static webpages manually maintained by the articles'
your neighbourhood's residents are invited to contribute by suggesting
subjects for future articles and surveys, or even write your own article.
neighbourhoods will be featutred in a SUN banner rotation to be released
as soon as we are minimum 5 members. You can even put the banner rotation
on your neighbourhood's web site, if you want.
future there might be formed interest groups where residents of registered
SUN members can join.
note: The SUN is a volunteerly offer from Sims to Sims, initiated for
neighbourhoods and not families or individuals, nor for humans playing
