Hi All,

Today is the 10th anniversary of the site that was once modthesims2.com and morphed into the current modthesims.info. It seems like such a long time ago now that I registered the domain and posted the first news post (on 12th May 2004, to be exact, on the then in use CMS system called e107).

Here's some interesting stats:

In the time since the sites inception, we started on Sims 2, added Sims 3 when it came out, have some stuff for Medieval, and have achieved a lot of things over the years. The sites focus has shifted somewhat over time, but thats to be expected with any large site. We plan on supporting TS4 when it comes out, and I know for one I will be sticking around for that. :) I look forward to seeing all of you in the days, months and years to come!

Happy Birthday and thank you to all of you who have stuck around for most of those 10 years! Some of our awesome creators will be uploading 10th anniversary themed uploads over the next few days so stay tuned for those!

Also, thank you, Delphy, for giving us (and our creativity) a home. :-)

Can't believe its been 10 years. I came around in 2012. I only been around almost two years and have over 10,000 CC of Sims 2 thanks to this site. I learn so much and needed somethings and recommend to other sites. Help me to back up and patches I needed and what to do if my CD crash on me. Making me LOVE Sims 2 even MORE!! Thank you to the founder, MOD's and AMAZING creators on here. Wish I can give more. But with money tight and no debt card its hard. But I hope one day to thank this wonderful site. Even do Sims2.com is shut down for good, I hope to see so much more on the Sims 2 here. Thank you guys. Always.

Here to ANOTHER great 10 great years.

My computer hate you guys BUT I LOVE you guys Always. :lol: :lovestruc

The ONE day I don't visit the site and it was your birthday?! How could I? Shame on me. I was too busy being distracted by the new TS4 CAS video.
ANYWAY, enough excuses.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MTS!!! Here's to many more.

I know MTS' birthday was Wednesday, but I still want to wish this site a very happy birthday! Not only is this the best site for Sims custom content (and not just because the Exchange is no more), but it is simply one of the best places on the net. I look forward to seeing what new and exciting changes will come to this site with the release of Sims 4 (even though I remain a Sims 2 gamer). :)

Thank you for all you do! The creativity and talent on this site is amazing, and has inspired me to create and modify everything in my Sims' lives, from curtains and rugs to bathtubs and sofas to hair and eyebrows to windows and roofs to overcoats and formalwear. How can one ever get bored? I'm still playing Sims 2, and it's still as fresh as the day I installed. Thank you again!

Happy Belated Birthday MTS!! Your site has saved my sanity more times than I care to admit, he he :) . Whenever I searched for problems for my game, thankfully, Mod the Sims could be counted on to give me an answer that WORKED, . . . and WORKED FAST. I'm so happy that this site has been here for addicted (and formerly :D addicted) Sim Players. YAY for MTS!!

I hope MTS will be around FOREVER. period. :)

Thank you to all creators here. Your hard work and the wonderful pieces you have created have made my TS3 experience much richer.
I am also thankful that you plan on supporting TS4 since I am interested in buying that game, but I know for sure that issues like finding beautiful hair will not be solved by EA/Maxis. So, I really appreciate your creativity and enthusiasm.
