Getting on with the Story
We mentioned and linked to Sim Stories about three weeks ago, and we’re pleased to see that Evergreen aka Alpha’s plans have proven to be a success, with a core membership of about 30 and plenty of activity – over 1000 posts, and by that we mean posts, not endless wassups, etc.

Apparantly she was going to send Strawberry Rotten round to sort them out, but she refused as she felt it wasn’t worth her while – ‘They’ve not got a brain to eat between them!’
But as Robodl95 discovered, the pic uploader’s also having what PollySim at Jazz-Hands & Sims Forums may well call ‘a wee binny to itself’ :
The SimStories team summed up what many a serious Sims story writer has found themselves obliged to do – make the effort to get the best of both worlds:
Inbetween all this, they still had time to mention the single most important political issue of the day (at least it is over at Sims Forums):
