Simmerville has been
around since February 2002 as one of the largest sites operated by Sims
and focusing on Simmish culture and everyday life. March 2004 our site
was awarded with Golden Star Award for best community site. One of our
goals is to connect Sim hoods and adding to the everyday experience.
It's natural for us to affiliate
with other web sites operated by Sims. Content like "how to play the sims"
and "codes for cheating" is totally out of the question. That kind of sites
are not interesting to Sims.
If your web site is operated
by sims and within our "From Sims to Sims" concept, then please read on
to see what to do:
Please use one of our four
buttons above, make sure the icon links to http://www.hinsides.no/simmerville/index.html

including the following:

button icon be downloaded? Do not send the image as an attatchment, but
rather link to it if it's already on the web.
*3* Webmaster Sim's name
and e-mail address.
By applying you confirm that
you, the webmaster, is a Sim and not a Human.

of the 4 icons for linking to Simmerville even if you decide not to join

make our hood go around, our hood go around...
Simmerville web is still
totally free and we intend to keep it that way. It gives us freedom to
update as often or rarely as we like. Nevertheless, after several years
of bandwidth costs and at least 10 hours of work every week (poor sims,
right!) we have now decided to open up for donations via PayPal.
Donators will not get anything
extra, at least not at this point. Donations will simply be your way to
show your gratitude for the past as well as help inspire the staff to keep
going :-) If you can't donate anything you are still very much welcome
to every corner of Simmerville including anny free download you can find.
We couldn't find a way to
have donations transferred into Simoleons, so you will need to do this
in the Human way, with PayPal. We will make sure that for every Dollar
donated, 1000 Simoleons will be added to Simmerville's welfare budget!
Keep in mind that the PayPal
fee will be withdrawn from your donation, meaning sending less than one
Dollar/Euro will be a better deal to PayPal than to Simmerville. Also,
because of fees, donating $2 once would be smarter than donating $1 twice.
Donations can be made by
clicking the PayPal button
Spam is a huge problem also
at Simmerville. Everyday we receive tons of email that is filtered out
and deleted without being opened. If you want to mail us you must either
send mail by clicking a link on the site, to assure that we recognize the
subject line. Or make sure to include "Simmerville" in the subject line.
If the subject line is just "Hello" the mail will not be read. Sorry.
To find the address to mail
someone who wrote an article, go to the article, then click the theme button
on top left of the page (next to the HOME button) and scroll down until
you find the article in the index. All available addresses are in the index,
note that some will be sent to websimtress Bimbo NL.
Receiving virus or
spam from any of us at Simmerville web?
That is how those virus
scripts work; they find a random email address in the infected computer
(address book, email or web cache) and use it as disguise. A mail claiming
us to be the sender was not necessarily sent from us. Note that we never
send out attachment (other than if it was asked for, of course). Never
open any attachment from us unless it was expected.
