Sim Secret Bans Male Rape Posts – But Only Once They Know They’re Not Getting Any Of Them

Posted in Uncategorized on March 31, 2017 by themaresnest

Late on Friday night, the following appeared over at you know where…

For those wondering what Loki Beaker posts are, it concerns pseudo-pornographic shots of the Sims 2 character from Strangetown (thankfully not that of the child from Aurora Skies in Sims 3) being raped that appear to have been something of an obsession among those there.

The laughable part though was the ban came only once Prah2010 knew they weren’t getting any.

Yes, how noble of you.


SIMplified Prefers The Old Nostalgia To The New Nostalgia

Posted in Uncategorized on March 30, 2017 by themaresnest

Now there’s an oxymoron for you!

Much to our surprise, checking back the last time we spotted SIMplified was in November 2012, yet we’d no idea she’d been away this long – one of those that seemed so semi-permanent you didn’t really notice she’d vanished as you were certain she was around the EA forum somewhere

Every night on the EA forum’s like ‘A Night At The Museum’, Igazor!

Speaking of which, some fascinating old relics – JoAnne65, World Explorer Pary and King_of_Simcity7 were at hand to give them a guidebook and the guided tour.

TadOlson meanwhile was one predictive text post away from disaster:

Normally having a full hard one is a prerequisite of starting play, but not in the Sims series!


Something old and something new next, as newbie (sort of…) KaikoMikkusu and the inimitable grand old dame of the Simming world Rflong7/13 popped in to say hello to the prodigal daughter.

As did those other two old time troopers DoTheSmustle and Surreal:


Nice sentiments CandyD… we could have done without the appearence of Pescado though!

Jessa_Dakkar and Jillbg turned up – naturally! – but so did Uzone27, who really took things too far with…

It’s almost enough to make you want to:


SIMplified was very happy with the response to her post – including an outbreak of fangasms towards Rflong7/13 (so at least we know she’s still normal!):

Pary put her in the picture as to the bumnuggetry EA had been up to whilst she was away elsewhere:

For ElanorBreton, there was a touch of sadness for those no longer with us:

Funnily enough, there appears to have been a run on The Mare’s Nest this week for posts on a number of old familiar faces which have disappeared, one in particular being Zhivan aka Zhivankarst. No idea if this came from members of the EA forum or some of the old Aarinites, but for those who did, yeah, we share that same pang for a lost old friend too – another left disillusioned by Sims 4.

And in the case of Karritz, by the forum that replaced the one we all knew and loved:

Elsewhere, Igazor was feeling his age:

And Junceda came out of the Create-A-World section to say hello:

Whilst Rflong7/13 turned into the Easter Bunny and gave away a few eggs for the faithful:

Yes, we are less than we were before, but we are none the less strong than before.

So long as we keep faith, others will return – like SIMplified.

King_of_Simcity7 Has Gone Down The Pan With This Post!

Posted in Uncategorized on March 29, 2017 by themaresnest

Yes, the spirit of Simlogical And The Dead End Knights lives on!

Your Simmies pee and shower, Elanorbreton, then swap around – and they wonder why they’re going in stinky? Not since the days of Pollysim has there been such shameless hygieneless issues with the beautiful game.

JoAnne65’s Simmies however are made of sterner stuff however, steel in fact – and we don’t mean the stuff her toilet’s made out of.

But for Kateness, you can never have enough bathrooms.


We always wondered who was the person that inspired a certain famous ‘Not The Nine O’Clock News’ sketch which first introduced (an off camera) Mr Bean…

Rflong7/13 meanwhile prefered a slightly less radical approach:

With six toilets!

Whilst TreyNutz’s Simmies may have bladders of steel, DivieOwl’s appear to have ones of too many cups of tea.

On second thoughts, maybe it wasn’t Kateness who inspired that sketch after all!

It wouldn’t be an epic Simming thread without Igazor turning up:

Now you and we would think the man from NRaas had everything covered, but KevinL5275 thought otherwise…


Silly Igazor! How else are you going to order in a post-pan cracker pizza fest?

From pizzas now to sprouts…

Part genie, part mermaid? If they were also part fairy you’d have the cleanest toilets in all Simdom, Gitte2001 – guaranteed to reach the places other Simmies couldn’t reach!

Batrooms, WillowG145? We’ve heard of bats in the belfry, but never bats in the bathroom.

TadOlson prefers his toilet time to be al fresco

Erm, that’s only true in Blackadder II, King_of_Simcity7!

Could be worse, JoAnne65, could be like the Aussies where you have to worry about the dreaded ‘dunny spider’ (the redback) as well!

Quite, Surreal, quite!

But what’s all this?

You’ve been having dalliances with Coco? Just wait until CravenLestat finds out!

But let’s finish our business here with someone we’re only mentioning for only the second time in the history of The Mare’s Nest despite being quite a prolific poster it appears since 2009:

For that, our apologies – we deserve to get panned for it!


NRaas Industries – The Leaders In The Weight Loss Industry

Posted in Uncategorized on March 28, 2017 by themaresnest

Is there nothing they can’t do?

For Sindocat, it all seems hopeless for those with a fast matabolism.

But wait! There is hope!

Here comes Igazor with the science bit – concentrate!

‘we helped the player solve the issue at NRaas.’


We bet TadOlson’s already got it!

Former Simmers And Simmers On Form

Posted in Uncategorized on March 27, 2017 by themaresnest

Another of those ‘before we forget’ posts!

A former Simmer, Roman2886?

ZeeGee stated the obvious retort:

We liked CravenLestat take on it best:


Although ENolan’s philosophical moot was interesting:


But what if they are bluffing?

However it seems that indeed some of the veterans have been finding their enthusiasm on a downward spiral:

Although it has to be said that CK213 has a past history of peaks and troughs with his interest in Simming, if anyone can sum up the appalling damage the Glitterturd has done to the fanbase, it’s Sk8rblaze:

Yes, this is the same poster boy for Sims 4 who’s disillusionment with the game was one of the great comedowns of 2014. Three years on, nothing has changed, despite all the further booster releases.

Mind you, there were others who stopped playing because they had no choice:

As Igazor – who else? – pointed out to OKblondee7, there was a simpler solution to her problems – drop that guy!

Really, he missed his vocation as an Agony Aunt for ‘Cosmopolitan’!

Yes, TadOlson has told that story about TadOlson’s computer woes just a few million times. TadOlson did forget to mention all the NRaas mods in TadOlson’s game as well however, so we are wondering it this is an imposter!


However, admit the gloom, there’s still plenty of the old guard staying true to the faith, with Tangie-HappySimmer3 being one of those who came on board at just about the worst possible time of life to do so – university – and yet remains with us with the rest of the World Explorers to this day as part of the backbone of the Simming community (or at least a substitute to the lack of any sort of backbone possessed by the Simgurus!).

And if there’s one we’ll always be glad to see around, it’s MW1525 – the living embodiment of quality over quantity posts – whose experience as a professional writer shows with her ability to encapsulate a multitude of Simming topics and issues concisely.

Although we still liked one of our own answers to the question of when we’ll give up the game

Cloverstardropper Discovers The Ukipcrab

Posted in Uncategorized on March 26, 2017 by themaresnest

In the week that Britain is getting a new one pound coin to replace the ones Rumanian immigrants forged on an industrial scale rendering them utterly worthless that people complain cause too much wear and tear in their pockets, wallets and purses, it’s nice to hear from Cloverstardropper than over on The Dominating Crabbiness’ side of the pond they are also introducing some new coins:

Elsewhere, Switch has discovered from Dumblr that Taffer Tee Vee appears to have a stalker:

… but unfortunately is in need of discovering a good history book:


It doesn’t get much more warrior that Bluetooth – named after Harold Bluetooth, who united Denmark with Norway in the 10th century by conquest and diplomacy. He’s even in Civilization V as the leader of the Vikings… you know, the demo version of Skyrim’s Nords.


Only your adverts, your immortal soul and your Sprite. Nothing to worry about!

Congratulations on your important discovery of the Ukipcrab by the way:

But shame on you for your sinking to the following new depths of depravity:

Unless this is all part of your overall career plans to become a humble kink farmer:

Question is, how far apart do you have to plant your kinks in order for them to grow properly?

And what sort of fertiliser do you give them? KY Jelly?

We think we should be told!

Okay Gram Sims, We’ll Give You This One…

Your job of Emma Watson was so realistic, we’ll bet Jessamine Diane’s fist went right through her computer screen instantaneously!
