Gather 'round, eager MTSers! We are once again looking to recruit some volunteer upload moderators from your fine ranks. This time we are especially interested in TS4ers, but we will be accepting applications from players of all Sims games.

What it will entail:

Upload moderators see the queue in a view much like the downloads browser, and individual uploads look much like users are used to seeing, just with some additional options on both. Uploads moderators log into our live chat, look at uploads waiting in the queue, and then work with other moderators who are online to evaluate each one based on various criteria, using a handy rubric like a checklist. In most cases we will also write out some individual notes with clarifications and specific feedback for the uploader. When all items are complete, the evaluation is sent to the creator and the upload is approved, rejected, or kept in the queue as it requires changes.

Each upload usually takes anywhere from 2-10 minutes to evaluate, depending on complexity and upload type (lots, for example, are usually harder and more time consuming to evaluate than walls), so the total time commitment varies somewhat depending on how many items are in the queue. Average time spent will probably be something like 15-45 minutes, for a typical "moderation session" The more warm bodies we have working on uploads, the less effort it will have to be for each individual, though.

When starting out as an upload moderator, you will be mentored closely by our more senior staff members while you learn how things work. However, even after the "training wheels" come off, we still encourage all of our moderators to take advantage of our live chat and get second opinions on their moderation. Keeping in touch with fellow moderators really helps newbies figure out where they fit in, and helps us get to know your strengths as a mod. Most of our staff members live in western Europe and eastern North America, and are typically most active during the evenings in their time zones, so being available to chat and moderate around these times will be helpful.

Though not mandatory, moderators who are open to helping with other aspects of the site will always be greatly appreciated. There's a lot of room for doing what you love here, whether it's keeping an eye on the various forums we host, helping to review our upload guidelines and policies, running official contests, or lots of other things. We've always got tasks (little and big) that need doing!

Criteria:

Here's what we're looking for in upload moderators... A good candidate for a moderator is someone who has:


Been a member of MTS for at least 6 months.
Been active on the site and/or in chat, with a consistent helpful and courteous attitude and a record of good conduct.
Good proficiency in English. You don't need to be a native speaker, but your English must be strong, since all staff communication is done in English.
Good writing skills. Being able to write clear and positive feedback, which often must communicate complex ideas to people whose English may not be particularly good, is an extremely important part of upload moderation. Ideal upload moderators are able to tailor their writing to emphasize the friendly, supportive tone that we aim to use for all uploads.
Good teamwork skills, and is willing to partner with other staff members and learn from their feedback.
An understanding of our Creator Guidelines. You don't need to have them memorized (that would be impressive, though), just a general understanding of the fundamentals will do. The specifics we can teach you.
A good attention to detail and willingness to learn and expand your knowledge base beyond the kinds of content and games you are currently familiar with.
At least a solid block of 15-45 minutes free time per day for moderation while working with other mods, several days a week.


You do not have to be a content creator to perform the tasks we're needing done (things like checking image sizes and required images, lot size/price, correct patch level listed, etc.), but being a creator is certainly a big plus!

How to apply:

If you're interested in helping out MTS as an upload moderator, and you have read this whole post at least twice to understand what you're getting into, then you can post on this here thread to let us know you're interested. Please use the word "cupcake" at least once in your post, and answer us the following:

1. What Sim games have you played? What Sim game(s) do you currently spend the most time playing?

2. Do you make custom content (even if you haven't uploaded any)? If so, for which games (even non-Sims games), and what kinds of items?

3. Are you staff for any other sims sites?

4. Would you be willing to commit to the time as indicated above, on MTS?

5. What time zone are you located in? What time of day typically works best for you to be online?

6. Tell us a little bit about yourself. Whatever you feel like sharing, regardless of whether or not it's directly relevant.

Please only post applications on this thread, no off-topic chat - if you really want to discuss things, there is a thread here (http://www.modthesims.info/showthread.php?p=5239816). Fill yer boots.

I'm probably one of the younger people on this site, and I'm not sure if that makes you less interested in me, but I figured it's better to try and not be chosen than to not try at all :)

Just a little background info about me:
I'm 17 years old and I live in Florida. I'm a long-time Sims player; I started playing The Sims 1 when I was around 6 or 7 years old :lol:
I've been on MTS since 2012. I love musical theatre and baking (one of my favorite things to bake is cupcakes), and I'm currently hoping to attend University of Central Florida to earn a degree in Hospitality. From there I'd like to get a job working at Disney World :)

Application Answers:

1. I've played every Sims game, and actually have all 3 games installed on my laptop. However, I've been playing the Sims 2 and Sims 4 the most lately.

2. I make custom content, but solely for The Sims. I create sims because I have an eye for detail (and can be pretty OCD at times :lol:), which helps me when I'm trying to make nicely-modeled, unique sims.

3. I'm not currently a staff member for other Sims sites. This would be my first staff job, but I'm absolutely willing to learn :)

4. I'm definitely willing to commit the time required!

5. I'm in the eastern time zone. I'm usually on daily checking updates, but in the event that things come up, Saturday is probably the best day for me to be online.

Hope I'm considered as an option for your team! :)

I have been a member for little over a year (don't know if that'll work...) but figured I'd try.

My answers:

1. I've played all 4 generations of the sims. Ts4 happens to both be my favorite and the most played.

2. Yes, I do make custom content. I recolored a dress and am working on recoloring hair now.

3. No, I have never been a staff member but I am willing to learn.

4. Yes, wholeheartedly. I do pay attention to detail.

5. I'm located in the Pacific Timezone...Usually evenings and weekends are best for me.

6. Mostly I love sweets, like cupcakes and Cheesecake so I am thrilled when someone adds them to the Sims cookbook. My mods folder mainly has CAS and food mods.

Hope I can be part of the team!

Just to give a little background; I'm 19, currently residing in lovely Florida, and I just got my new laptop so my long hiatus can finally be over on here! So what better time to apply than now, right? I just recently got casted as a cast member on Disney property, but in my freetime I'm usually either downloading CC, making Sims (I tend to spend more time in the CAS than in the game itself haha,) or drawing, as I love art (And yes, this involves drawing lots of sweets, including cupcakes!)
Sims specific background, I grew up playing it. My dad got TS2 from a client years back, with the pets EP that had just released then, and I fell in love with it and have been playing since! Formerly being LittleTrancyGirl (I lost access to that account way back sadly) so even though for this account in particular I've been on since 2014, really I've been on here since 2012.

Application:
1. What Sim games have you played? What Sim game(s) do you currently spend the most time playing? I play Sims 2-4, all expansions and stuff packs to date. I spend most of my time playing Sims 2 and Sims 4, usually building or in the CAS.

2. Do you make custom content (even if you haven't uploaded any)? If so, for which games (even non-Sims games), and what kinds of items? Yes! I make custom sims, houses, and I can do furniture and clothing recolours. I'm actually working on a Gorillaz project with those right now, and finishing up my Invader Zim one!

3. Are you staff for any other sims sites? Sadly, no.

4. Would you be willing to commit to the time as indicated above, on MTS? Yes! Minus when I didn't have access to a computer or internet, I usually am on here at least once a day to browse the newest content and updates. And that often turns into hours, haha.

5. What time zone are you located in? What time of day typically works best for you to be online? I'm located in EST, and my best hours are usually between 4pm-4am, depending on the shifts they give me. Typically though I try to be on at least some point during the day.

6. Tell us a little bit about yourself. Whatever you feel like sharing, regardless of whether or not it's directly relevant. Well, adding onto above, I /love/ cartoons, music, and I'm an active roleplayer of over 10 years. I play lots of games varying from Toontown Online to Sims to old retro games, and I try to livestream them whenever I can. I'm also a huge theme park enthusiast, Disney of course being the favourite.

I hope I make it onto the team, and I wish everyone who submitted an application good luck on getting in!

1. What Sim games have you played? What Sim game(s) do you currently spend the most time playing?

I've played them all! I think there are a few The Sims 4 packs I have yet to try out though. Right now I'm jumping between The Sims 2 and The Sims 3!

2. Do you make custom content (even if you haven't uploaded any)? If so, for which games (even non-Sims games), and what kinds of items?

Mhhrhmm, at times I create lots in my game and when I was younger I made some clothes in TS2 Body Shop, but right now my passion for the game isn't related to creating content.

3. Are you staff for any other sims sites?

Nope! :llama:

4. Would you be willing to commit to the time as indicated above, on MTS?

Oh absolutely! I believe I have a will to commit and spend time on MTS to make it a better place since it's a website close to my heart. I can't think of any other site I've been using constantly for almost 10 years

5. What time zone are you located in? What time of day typically works best for you to be online?

UTC+01:00 - Centraleuropean time. I have the most freetime in the evening but at times in the morning.

6. Tell us a little bit about yourself. Whatever you feel like sharing, regardless of whether or not it's directly relevant.

Where do I begin? I see my self as a friendly person who grows when I'm part of something big, often a larger group. I have never taken myself too seriously, I believe that could be a key to live a healthy life. Nothing in life means more to me than my family, my friends and spending time in nature, although I do love playing games such as The Sims, Grand Theft Auto, Crash Bandicoot and Portal. At times with a cupcake in my hand. Other interests include fashion, drag, computers and exercise. I believe I have a big understanding for how people's mindset work, and I am not quick to judge. In my eyes everyone deserves a second chance.

I hope you consider me! :king:

1. What Sim games have you played? What Sim game(s) do you currently spend the most time playing?

I have played TS1, TS2, TS3 and TS4. I spend the most time on TS2 at the moment. More creating than playing, though.
I have also played Simcity 4, Simcity3000 and I am currently addicted to Simcity Buildit on my mobile.

2. Do you make custom content (even if you haven't uploaded any)? If so, for which games (even non-Sims games), and what kinds of items?

Yes, I started creating January 2010, but I'm a member of MTS way longer. I started with postcards, careers, but also bodyshop items, recolors, lots and food. Creating new cupcakes, ice cream,... in themes is what I also like to do. I have several ideas for more creations. This all only for TS2.
I tried to create for TS3 without luck (only some lots worked out well) and I also tried TS4. That went a bit better, but I prefer TS2 too much to create for any other game.
I enjoy other's CC for those games, though.
And although my attempts to create for TS3 and TS4 failed, I am still willing to learn. I'm currently working on creating something new (with BHAV) for TS2. Gummilutt is so kind to help me with that right now.
I know I still have to learn a lot about creating, there are several (potential) creators who ask me to help them with their creations. That's why I wrote some tutorials on my blog to help others to create their own recolors, food,...
As being a teacher (see answer to 6.) writing tutorials and teaching others is also something I love to do.

3. Are you staff for any other sims sites?

Only on my blog Sims2Idea.

4. Would you be willing to commit to the time as indicated above, on MTS?


I'm certainly willing to do so. Several (not all) days a week is definitely possible for me.
When it's possible to moderate uploads in the queue on my mobile, it would be possible to commit even more time to MTS.

5. What time zone are you located in? What time of day typically works best for you to be online?

My timezone is GMT+2. Brussels let's say.
The best time for me is in the evening and weekends. My working hours are not consistent at the moment so mornings might be possible sometime too.

6. Tell us a little bit about yourself. Whatever you feel like sharing, regardless of whether or not it's directly relevant.

I'm a 28-year old woman who's very interested in everything that has to do with Sims, pets (especially my cat and dog) and IT (although I like the PC to be on).
Currently I work in logistics and a quality employee. Angree drivers or clients are something I have to deal with nearly weekly. But I actually have a diploma to be a teacher (English, IT and economics) so I can also handle angree students ;). Meaning that I know how to give constructive critisism even when it's written (it always sound harder written than spoken). And although English is not my native language and I still write mistakes sometimes (mostly when being too fast or too enthousiastic) I can really make myself clear in a nice, friendly way. It's typical for a teacher to be patient, work in team, being constructive and loving to follow rules and other following those rules. I love checklists to make sure you don't forget anything and to make sure that the quality is good.
As quality employee I know how important perfect quality is and I have to spend a lot of attention to details.
I've written a lot of careers myself and I am dreaming of (finding the time first) to do some writing. I have an idea for a book, I just haven't had the time to put it on paper yet.
The most important for me at my house, are my pets: my dog "Phoebe" (Yeah, from Friends) and my cat "Simba" (Yeah, from The Lion King). I love playing with and teasing my cat and I really love walking my dog in the park. I love several TV-series mostly detectives. I don't love cooking that much. I create better food for TS2 than for my own ;) I like eating though.

Hopefully you will consider me as a moderator.
How will the appliers be notified about the outcome of the application? Is there a further "application process" like some tests or something?

Hi hello :) I'm Alrunia and I think cupcakes are a little bit overrated they're just muffins without the ability to pretend you're eating healthy

I've been on MTS since 2009, which is apparently eight years. I've played all of the Sims games; 1 and 2 when I was very young and I can't recall much about them, 3 and 4 more recently. I currently only play Sims 4.

I've been making CC since the Sims 2 days, in fact I have some highly embarrassing old stuff uploaded to another site beause there weren't enough clothes and hairstyles in my favourite shade of lurid pink I GUESS :giggler: I also made some (hopefully better) stuff for Sims 4, which is all uploaded here on MTS; mostly builds, one piece of makeup, and one TS3 to TS4 object conversion/recolour.

I am not staff on any other sims sites, but I'm perfectly willing to commit to the time required by MTS. My timezone is CEST, and I'm online often in the late morning (depending on school and work) and always early evening until late at night. I like to think I'm pretty familiar with the upload guidelines as I've gone over them a few times before when my stuff has been rejected.

I'm a little shy when it comes to interacting with people on large public forums, which is my excuse for not posting very often. Smaller groups of people or private chats are much easier for me. I like to think I'm good at writing and I've been getting very good grades for my essays this semester so hey maybe I am? I often write tutorials on how to do stuff in other games, mmorpgs, and for my other hobbies (such as sewing). I'm highly organised (I make spreadsheets for everything), extremely detail oriented (like maybe too much), I have a nearly-finished bachelor's degree in history of art and a just-started one in New Media. Conversely my interests include history (history of fashion in particular), media analysis and interactive storytelling. As a side gig I tutor high- and middle-schoolers in history, english (as a foreign language), and writing, so perhaps I'm pretty okay at expressing ideas in an accessible way.

In short I think I fulfill the requirements and there's a good chance I could be helpful. :bunny:

Hi there! I have been a member since 2010 and been fairly active. I visit the site almost everyday and spend considerable amounts of time here. I had wanted to apply for the position last time but was unsure about the time I could dedicate. This time I decided to take the plunge!

I am a Medical doctor from India who has a never ending love for The Sims ( and dogs and books and Geralt of Rivia...but that is besides the point)
English is not my native language but I did learn English as my first language in school. So, I am fairly proficient in it! (Also I spell 'Colour' with a 'u' )
I am not a creative writer but I make it up by being organised
I love interacting with simmers
I can give constructive criticism as I am getting additional training to become a medical educator (see the list of irrelevant fact at the bottom of this post) and have fairly good experience of training people.


1. What Sim games have you played? What Sim game(s) do you currently spend the most time playing?

I have played all 4 games to varying degree. At present I play Sims 3 and 4. For Sims 3 its mainly playing and for Sims 4 is mainly mod testing at present!

2. Do you make custom content (even if you haven't uploaded any)? If so, for which games (even non-Sims games), and what kinds of items?

I make custom content and even upload a fair amount. My content is Sims 4 > Sims 3 at present. I make mods (including Cupcakes) and buy mode objects. I also love building but I don't upload those anymore.

3. Are you staff for any other sims sites?

No I am not a staff .

4. Would you be willing to commit to the time as indicated above, on MTS?

I will be willing to commit the required time to the best of my ability. Some days I have no free time but I can try and make up on other days .

5. What time zone are you located in? What time of day typically works best for you to be online?

I am in India which is GMT+5.5 hours and the time I am online is typically between 6:30 P.M. -8:30 P.M. GMT few days a week. If I have a day off (like Sunday), I can be online at other times too. Also I am always connected through mobile.

6. Tell us a little bit about yourself. Whatever you feel like sharing, regardless of whether or not it's directly relevant.

I am 31 years old and currently doing an additional degree which will allow me to be a medical educator (teach medical undergrads and nurses). I am also writing a thesis and doing additional research ( on top of the clinical patient service- Internal medicine and clinical neurophysiology). Life is hectic and my major entertainment is Sims. I don't like going out much and I love a good book and good food. I cannot really cook! I sleep less than 5 hours every day (thats where I get my gaming time from). I am yet to pop out a kid.My husband is also a doctor and he sometimes works nights and I take advantage by gaming all night and going to work next day in zombie mode /end of irrelevant information.

In conclusion I would love to be a part of the MTS Team and contribute to the site which has benefited me so much!

Hi! I've been on MTS since around 2014, when I got the Sims 3 and was mesmerized by the amount of brilliant content & creators on this site.

Answers:

1. I've played all Sims games, Sims 1-Sims 4, with every EP & SP for 1&2, a lot of 3's EP's and SP's, and every additional pack for the Sims 4 (currently). Right now, I've been obsessed with The Sims 4, and keep playing it non-stop. I don't forget about 2, as I will always come back every so often to enjoy the brilliance that is The Sims 2 (I don't currently play or own Sims 3 anymore)

2.I do make some CC for The Sims 4 in my spare time. Most of them are personal and never uploaded, but I do still have some experience in texturing clothing (I own Photoshop, but I still do not consider myself an expert :lol:).

3.I am not a staff member for any other Sims sites but I am eager to learn!

4. I am definitely ready to commit to the time needed.

5. I am located in the Eastern Standard Time/Eastern Daylight Time Zone, and although my schedule is a little crazy, expect to see me most on Sunday/Monday.

6. I live in the U.S. (Florida), and I speak English fluently. I am obsessed with luxury brands, so expect some designer-inspired clothing CC from me soon :king:!

1. I played the Sims 3 and now I play the Sims 4 because my disk version of TS3 doesn't work for some reason.

2. I don't make CC but I've always wanted to learn how!

3. I am not staff for any Sims sites at the moment.

4. I would be 100% willing to commit to the moderator time.

5. I am in the Vancouver time zone. I can come online between 1:30 PM and 9:00 PM.

6. I like da cupcake and doggos.

Yes, and even more.

I like cupcake(s), dogs, animals in general but especially small animals. I'm transgender (FtM), gay asf, and a huge nerd. I do have BPD (Borderline Personality Disorder) but it won't affect my moderating of uploads.

Hi everyone! Iím 19 years old living in Wales. I started playing the Sims since I was a child and have done so ever since.

Iíve been a member on Mod The Sims since 2008, although Iíve never actually made my own content. Iím a frequent downloader for both the Sims 2 and 4, and Iíve probably downloaded at least 25% of the entire website over the years (no joke). I donít chat on this website much, but Iím always more than happy to start talking to other users.

I have lived in Wales my entire life, so needless to say Iím fluent in English, and I have Aís in both English Language and Literature GCSE.

I am able to work in a team, as I am a Student Ambassador at my university, so I have to communicate with large groups of people on a regular basis. Iím friendly and outgoing so working with others is no challenge for me, and I even have a Working with Others Qualification from A levels.

I am aware of the Creator Guidelines and what content isnít allowed on this website as well as some basic how to .RAR and .ZIP. As Iíve never uploaded myself I donít have in-depth knowledge but itís nothing that I couldnít learn quickly.

Iíve been a dedicated harp player for over 10 years, so attention to detail is an essential quality I need (and have) in order to sight-read music. Iím always happy to expend my knowledge of anything, in fact Iím going to be working with my International Office in my university to greet foreign students at airports as itís a chance to expand my cultural knowledge.

Although I am in university 15-45 minutes a day wonít be a large chunk out of my work and Ií be happy to commit to this.

1. What Sim games have you played? What Sim game(s) do you currently spend the most time playing?

You name it Iíve probably played it. The entire list of Sims 2,3 and 4 games that I own are listed in my profile so you can get the idea of how much I play the Sims. I am also a console player, and Iím still in love with the Sims, The Sims 2 and Pets and the Sims 2 Castaway for PS2. I also have the Urbz (whether thatís a Sim game is debatable) as well as the Sims 3 for Xbox and the Sims 2 Pet and Castaway Stories or PC. I could also list all the Nintendo Sim games I own and play but Iíd probably crash the website. ATM Iím currently playing the Sims 2, because I just love nostalgia (also the Pleasant family are my favourite to play with).

2. Do you make custom content (even if you haven't uploaded any)? If so, for which games (even non-Sims games), and what kinds of items?

Iíve never made any custom content myself, not because I canít, but Iíve just been so in love with other creatorís works that Iíve never felt the need or desire to make my own. If I did however, Iíd make a mod so that when a child ďcooksĒ with the Little Baker oven that the cupcakes/muffins donít burn, it just annoys me when I have 10-20 of them around the house.

3. Are you staff for any other sims sites?

Iím not a member of staff on any Sim website but I do use them e.g. the sims resource etc.

4. Would you be willing to commit to the time as indicated above, on MTS?

Yes I would. As I said above even though I am in university it is not a large amount of time out of my day that I would be using, as I love Sims so it would be more like a break than a job.

5. What time zone are you located in? What time of day typically works best for you to be online?

I live in Wales so I live in Greenwich mean-time. For me anytime between 2pm and 10pm would be fine but Iíd be happy to do any other time as long as I am able.

6. Tell us a little bit about yourself. Whatever you feel like sharing, regardless of whether or not it's directly relevant.

Iíve already said a little bit at the start, but other things that I enjoy doing include jogging, as itís a nice way to clear my mind from stress and Iím a Member at my local gym. I also like to cook; cookies, cupcakes, pies, cakes, casseroles; itís just nice to do something practical. I have been meeting with the head of my local youth justice team in order to become a volunteer with them, so Iíll be working with people who donít have a lot of support from the system or their families so hopefully Iíll be able to make a difference to them. Iíve just finished my first year at university, so thatís a relief. I can also speak and write some German, as I did German A level at my college, so you could say I have advance German knowledge. I had some of the top academic results in both my college and comprehensive school so I think itís safe to say Iím not stupid (unless weíre talking about football or rugby). I play the harp, and I have both Grade 5 theory and practical, but Iíve decided to skip grades and Iím currently working towards my Grade 8 Practical exam. One of my pieces is ďMy Favorite ThingsĒ from the Sound of Music, donít let it fool you into thinking itís a sweet, innocent song because itís the hardest thing ever :cry:

Wow, lots of applicants so far. I have thought about moderating for MTS in the past before, but never pursued it. It would be fun!
I've been an active member here at MTS since February of 2008. That's 9, almost 10 years!! :blink:

For the past few years I've kept an eye on the creator feedback forums, and occasionally poke around in our WCIF forums as well. I'm always looking to see the lastest uploads to MTS, regardless of what game the download may be for. I think it's good to have a knowledge of all the games, however, I don't usually play TS1, TS2, or TS4 so much. I am a big fan of the open world concept playable in TS3, so I spend most of my play time playing the 3rd installment in the game franchise.

CUPCAKE
1. What Sim games have you played? What Sim game(s) do you currently spend the most time playing?
I've played all Sim games, dabbling a little in Sim City released in 1989, and fell in love with the franchise when Maxis released what started it all, The Sims, released in the year 2000. I currently spend the most time playing The Sims 3 for PC.


2. Do you make custom content (even if you haven't uploaded any)? If so, for which games (even non-Sims games), and what kinds of items?
If a game has image files that can be recolored, I'll find them. I like to use photoshop to recolor different aspects of the game like skin tones, and hair colors of NPC's. Here at MTS I've only uploaded houses that I've built, not individual items.

3. Are you staff for any other sims sites?
No. I was, however, a moderator for Avatar Wikia (http://avatar.wikia.com/wiki/Avatar_Wiki) for about two years, almost five years ago.


4. Would you be willing to commit to the time as indicated above, on MTS?
Absolutely! MTS is almost always an open tab in my browser anyways, and I'm up with insomnia most nights looking for something to do. This would be good for me.

5. What time zone are you located in? What time of day typically works best for you to be online?
I'm located in the Mountain Standard Time zone (MST). I'm usually online, or playing The Sims in the morning from around 8:00 am until sometime around noon. Then again when I'm home from work around 9:30 pm until about midnight, possibly later.

6. Tell us a little bit about yourself. Whatever you feel like sharing, regardless of whether or not it's directly relevant.
I've been playing The Sims since I was four years old, sitting on my baby sitter's lap. Now, I'm 23 years old, living in Colorado Springs, Colorado. I recently got married to my amazing husband on Hallow's Eve last year, we've been together for almost three years now. Hair is my passion! I've been a licensed cosmetologist for four years, and currently work for Floyd's Barbershop. I'm all about my four dogs, they're my babies! Being a gay man, the fur-babies is as good as it's going to get before we're able to adopt!
(baby fever is no joke) :rofl:

Thank you for your time, and consideration.

1. I mainly play TS3 and TS4, although I do also visit my saves in the other two games. I have every expansion pack (because I have a problem lol), but I dread the possibility of the release of a cupcake themed pack.

2. I do. I released hair and clothing for TS2 and later for TS3 and TS4. I'm yet to really try to create objects.

3. I run my own forum, Pixelated Puddings (http://www.pixelatedpuddings.com/) with my friends Rachel and Tito. We'll be a year old in September and have been managing to keep things drama-free in that time.

4. Yes, I do work full-time, but I could easily fit up to an hour in to concentrate on sorting through submissions. I can also answer PMs during breaks and lunches and during quiet time at work. I could moderate between 6pm and 12am.

5. My timezone is BST, UTC +1

6. I live in Scotland with my husband and my three dogs. Aside from being a crazy dog lady, simming is my main hobby and has been since 2000 (I'm internet old at twenty eight and I've been here since 2004!). In that time, I have enjoyed dabbling in content creation and have been able to create head meshes (TS1) hair meshes (TS2/3 and 4) and clothing meshes (TS2/3 and 4). I also enjoy spending time with my friends, (Offline?? The horror!), painting, and Photoshopping my grumpy, elderly greyhound into various scenarios for my own amusement.

1. What Sim games have you played? What Sim game(s) do you currently spend the most time playing?

1. I have played nearly every sims game that was ever released starting from the Sims 1 through the Sims 4. This list includes multiple other consoles that ever had The Sims title such as the PSP, and Game Cube, which were really hard to get for me at the time XD. Im currently playing The Sims 4 the most as of right now, and finally hoping back into the community from a long hiatus.

2. Do you make custom content (even if you haven't uploaded any)? If so, for which games (even non-Sims games), and what kinds of items?

2.I have yet to make any custom content for games right now because of my limited experience in 3D modeling or using 3D programs but i am currently learning though.

3. Are you staff for any other sims sites?

3.Nope not the staff of any other site right now.

4. Would you be willing to commit to the time as indicated above, on MTS?

4. I would definitely be able to commit the time to dedicate to the website because i spend most time on the computer anyways :rofl: So i can definitely lend more time than that if needed hands down.

5. What time zone are you located in? What time of day typically works best for you to be online?

5. I'm located in the Eastern North America time zone and anytime of day is actually good for me. My late nights and long hours spent on the computer and online allows me to dedicate almost anytime of day if needed.

6. Tell us a little bit about yourself. Whatever you feel like sharing, regardless of whether or not it's directly relevant.

6. Ive actually been a long time user of this site dating back to my Sims 2 days of when I bought my first game and built my first computer. My first computer was actually built to mainly play the sims and buy all the DLC, expansion and stuff packs. Oh lastly im actually 22 years old and currently am upstarting a Sims Youtube channel. Cheers cupcake :)

I've been a member of the MTS community for years, can't rightly recall at the moment how many however. I have hardly any posts, which is an obvious problem. That's mainly because I'd rather spend time simming, or something else, than browsing threads at my leisure. Nothing at all against people who do, I honestly wish I had that compulsion. Anyway, on to the basics....

1. What Sim games have you played? What Sim game(s) do you currently spend the most time playing?
Currently S3. Had a go with S4 but it just doesn't have that good sims feel to me, personal problems with the devs aside. I'm definitely keeping an eye on S4 though, just everything being a rabbithole makes it feel like some flash game or something.

2. Do you make custom content (even if you haven't uploaded any)? If so, for which games (even non-Sims games), and what kinds of items?
Make? No. But I have assisted with mods for Fallout NV and Skyrim in the past, mainly voice acting and proof reading, brainstorming content. Not a programmer, so modding isn't something I'm able to really dive into (however much I'd like to)

3. Are you staff for any other sims sites?
Negative.

4. Would you be willing to commit to the time as indicated above, on MTS?
I believe so to the best of my knowledge. I have plenty of free time currently, so if I was aware of when people were around I can more likely commit to that regularly.

5. What time zone are you located in? What time of day typically works best for you to be online?
I'm located in Pacific standard. Later in the evenings through mornings usually.

6. Tell us a little bit about yourself. Whatever you feel like sharing, regardless of whether or not it's directly relevant.
I really enjoy helping others, like volunteer work, in certain circumstances. Where I can help someone understand an idea, or a reasoning. Additionally, I'm a hardcore perfectionist when it comes to typing and grammar, for better or worse lol. Lastly, I do my best to make anyone's time worth it when being taught something, be it a skill or a process.

I figure I'll throw my hat into the ring here, even if I'm not sure if I'll even be a good Moderator. But then sometimes you don't know if you'll be good at something unless you try.

1. What Sim games have you played? What Sim game(s) do you currently spend the most time playing?
I've played Sims1 for a long time. I'm pretty sure it was one of the first games my parents purchased when we got a computer. I had a list of chores that once checked off a list, could be redeemed for an hour of computer time. I'd save them up all week to redeem for longer Sims playing sessions. Sims2 was released around the same time I got my first job and was one of the first things I ever bought with my own money. I bought every expansion and stuff pack as soon as I possibly could. I also have most of the Sims3 expansions although I'm missing several of the stuff packs. I play pretty evenly between 2 and 3, depending on how I'm feeling or which family/challenge seems most interesting that day. I've never touched Sims4 and unless someone grants me a ton of money out of nowhere, I'm probably not going to try it out for a while.

2. Do you make custom content (even if you haven't uploaded any)? If so, for which games (even non-Sims games), and what kinds of items?
I make custom content for Sims2. I can do recolors and meshes for both clothing and objects. I've tried mods, but they just confuse the heck out of me. I might give them a try again though since I've recently learned how to read and write HTML code and am learning JavaScript so maybe it won't look near as "Greek" to me next time I open it up. Goodness knows those two "languages" looked like swirling letters only a year ago, so maybe BHAVs and such won't be so confusing if I can focus on them with that part of my brain. I've yet to try to create anything for Sims3, mostly because I've yet to be playing it and wishing something existed that I couldn't find already made by someone else.

3. Are you staff for any other sims sites?
I'm not staff on any Sims sites, but I have been an admin on several RP boards (which is why/how I learned coding). I'd link to them, but they've all died, mostly due to either lack of attention from the other admins (one person can only do so much), or from that one person that no one wants to RP with joining the community.

4. Would you be willing to commit to the time as indicated above, on MTS?
Yes, definitely. I am usually on my computer when I'm not sleeping or working, so devoting time here would not be a problem.

5. What time zone are you located in? What time of day typically works best for you to be online?
I'm in Central Time in the US. Usually the best time to get my full attention is late at night, between midnight and 2am. I'm less likely to be on in the mornings, especially if I work that day, and I generally work in the afternoons into the evenings.

6. Tell us a little bit about yourself. Whatever you feel like sharing, regardless of whether or not it's directly relevant.
Well, I'm 31 and hopelessly addicted to my phone, my computer, and Chapstick (preferably strawberry flavored). I can't spell while typing on a keyboard to save my life and and am constantly having to correct what I've typed so that it is legible and says what I meant it to say. Sims is probably my favorite game to play, though I do play a lot of other things. Lately I've been obsessed with playing Harry Potter Lego for like the thousandth time. I'll get tired of that eventually and go back to something else I've played countless times before. I enjoy re-playing games, re-watching movies, and most definitely re-reading books. I pick up so much that I missed the first time through when I'm doing/reading/watching things for the second/third/tenth time. I don't believe that things were made to be enjoyed once and set aside, that knowing the outcome of something doesn't detract from the enjoyment you can get from re-doing it. That said, I hate when things are spoiled for me, unless I purposely chose to have it spoiled. (I read the epilogue to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows before I even made it out of the store because I just had to know if everyone in the Trio survived.) My favorite books in the world are the Harry Potter series, and I'm one of those rare people that enjoys both Harry Potter and Twilight and will actually admit it. I will read any book you hand me if you can (truthfully) tell me there's a fantasy element involved in the plot, but I don't limit myself to just fantasy books. I enjoy craft projects and have so may different types of crafts that I do. Just don't ask me to draw. I can cook well enough to feed myself, but I'm not very creative that way. I see ingredients, not the meals they can become. I cannot bake at all. Unless you enjoy blackened charcoal. In that case, I'm your girl. I can tell you that is is in fact possible to burn water, and that I have done so. Don't put a pan of water on to boil then forget about it. You may very well ruin a pan and make family members mad at you. Fun fact: I cannot be trusted to transport cupcakes anywhere. They will be smashed, turned over, or have some other form of ruination rained down upon them if I am allowed to touch them. The only cupcakes that ever survive me are the ones for my sister's birthday and only because I (and they) fear her wrath if she doesn't get some form of cake on her birthday. (She's the baker in the family and she refuses to have to bake her own birthday (cup)cakes.) And I guess that's everything for now. Hope y'all are having a wonderful day! ~VP

1. What Sim games have you played? What Sim game(s) do you currently spend the most time playing?
I have played The sims 1, 2, 3 and 4. I own all of Sims 1, most of Sims 2, all of Sims 3 and some of Sims 4. I vary between 3 and 4 at the moment with
plans to return to 2 frequently, my laptop broke my Sims 1 so I no longer have access to it.

2. Do you make custom content (even if you haven't uploaded any)? If so, for which games (even non-Sims games), and what kinds of items?
I started with Sims 1, adding faces to templates, adding real life textures to the clothing to give my game a little less fakeness. Never got around to
creating for 2 and 3, seeings how there was so much out there ready to be downloaded. Currently I make content
for The Sims 4, mostly recolors, I have been tinkering with Blender and Sims4Studio with interests in custom clothes and hair, eventually
leading to custom functional objects. There's no end in sight, custom skills is my main goal.

3. Are you staff for any other sims sites?
No I am not.

4. Would you be willing to commit to the time as indicated above, on MTS?
I already spend up to 4 hours a day on MTS, or in efforts of fulfilling requests I come across on both MTS and TSR.

5. What time zone are you located in? What time of day typically works best for you to be online?
Eastern, USA Florida to be specific. Late in the evenings is when I get the most accomplished.

6. Tell us a little bit about yourself. Whatever you feel like sharing, regardless of whether or not it's directly relevant.
I've been playing and downloading since I was 11, 25 now. My favorite game so far is Sim 3, mostly because of all the content and worlds that are
available, I loved making Cats have kittens in 3, naming the tiny kittens was my favorite thing to do for a while, then adopting them out and finding them
randomly in my usual game play. Seeing names like Cupcake Uranus or Nance Nutcracker at any time was a kick. I'm a mother of two toddlers but that
doesn't take up my life, I was a gamer before kids, and i'll continue to play as long as I have a computer to play on. I love any aspect of craft, from knitting
to pixels. Looking forward to helping others expand their creativity.

How will the appliers be notified about the outcome of the application? Is there a further "application process" like some tests or something?
If it's like last time, you will be asked to come and chat to us and then there will be a sort of training session. But PH will let you know whatever she decides to do.

PharaohHound
13th Jul 2017, 8:16 PM
Yes, sorry I missed your question, @lientebollemeis . As maxon said, we'll start discussing all of the applicants once applications slow down a bit, and from there we'll form a shortlist of candidates to do a little chat session with so we can get to know them better. After the chat sessions we make the final decision. I'll post in this thread whenever we choose to close applications, and again after we draw up the shortlist. Everyone who's moved on to the next "round" (the chats) will get a PM. At that point I will post in this thread saying that our candidates have been chosen, and that anyone who hasn't gotten a PM has unfortunately not been accepted this time around.

1. What Sim games have you played? What Sim game(s) do you currently spend the most time playing?: I have played all of The Sim games 1-4, as of right now i spend the most time playing The Sims 2 and 4. I have more hours in these games than I care to admit and I have also played The Sims Castaway, and The Sims Medieval.

2. Do you make custom content (even if you haven't uploaded any)? If so, for which games (even non-Sims games), and what kinds of items?: I'm currently self teaching to make mods for The Sims 4, but I have never put anything out to the public.

3. Are you staff for any other sims sites?: No.

4. Would you be willing to commit to the time as indicated above, on MTS?: Hell yeah.

5. What time zone are you located in? What time of day typically works best for you to be online?: Pacific Time Zone, I can be online any time of day. working at night is best, but i'm usually available all day.

6. Tell us a little bit about yourself. Whatever you feel like sharing, regardless of whether or not it's directly relevant.: My name is Ciara, I am working my way towards a degree in Education. I'm 20 years old and I have played the Sims my entire life. I am from Washington and have years of experience working with children as part of my education program requirements, and because of this I have gained the skills necessary to work as part of a team. I am also bi-lingual in English and Spanish, English is my first language.

I should say in this application however, soon I will be looking for a part-time job and will need to work around future job hours, but I would not have any other obligations other than a few hours at a job for a while.

About a week ago I actually almost died choking on a cupcake, I know i'm supposed to include the word, but I really did choke. I truly hope that made someone laugh, because I didn't.

The Sims is more than just a game for me, and it's brought me out of some bad things in my life, so I can assure you If I make the cut and have the chance to be a part of the team, that it is a job that will be handled with the most care and attention to what needs to be done! Thank you for your consideration.

I enjoy movies, books and exercise. My most recent movie watching binge was the 5-movie series called Underworld. My next movie-watching binge will be the Resident Evil series. I also enjoy surfing 3 of my favorite comics sites to catch up on my daily dose of funny strips. As for books, I am currently reading a historical book on the Romanov family around the time they were murdered and when the Soviet Union came to be. I am a closet history buff. :|

I have been a member here since 2006 and remember a number of interesting uploads that left an impression on me how different people approach the Sims games with different ideas, some more controversial than others.

Now, I have a question for you all.. Which flavor is your most favorite for your cupcakes? Mine doesn't matter which flavor they are. It's CUPCAKES! :D By the way, MTS, you're missing the cupcake emoticon. We need one!

littledica
14th Jul 2017, 2:52 PM
Hi, I'm Littledica and I'm willing to apply to be a moderator for the uploads. I have been a member on MTS for a while now, since the 11th of August 2014, and it has been a blast! The website is very handy for Custom Content seekers for offering good quality uploads and for beginner creators, like I was a while ago, to learn the basics to create quality mods!
I have been studying English since I was a kid. I have achieved a quite good rating in both my PET and FCE exams, both around 80/85 points. I have a quite wide vocabulary and I know most of the techy and modding words.
My writing skills are good, I have been practicing for years now and I think I feel ready to partner with other moderators from the website, I have been collaborating in teamwork environments quite often and I'm willing to work together.
I have been a creator for quite a while now, I know almost each category from the creator guidelines. The attention to detail is essential while I am working on my creations and also when I am seeking for content! I am able to find any little detail that looks a bit off and also give help from my experience on possible ways to fix the issue! In the most friendly way of course.
I am able to dedicate the time indicated and even more to moderate the uploads, so that is not a problem for me.

1. What sims games have you played? What sims game(s) do you currently spend the most time playing?

I have played every Sims games for PC, from The Sims 1 to The Sims 4 with no exceptions. I currently play the most The Sims 3 and The Sims 4. I also play a little bit of The Sims 2, I like to create worlds with the Neighborhood creating tools.


2. Do you make custom content (even if you have not uploaded any) if so, for which games (even non-Sims games), and what kinds of items?

I have been creating custom content exclusively for Sims games for quite a while now. I create content that I upload here on MTS for The Sims 4, but also content for FreeSO (Free Simulator Online), the reboot of The Sims Online made by a great developers team! (beta.freeso.org). I mostly create objects, but I gave some attempts to Make Up (The Sims 4 and 3), Clothing (The Sims 4) and poses (Also The Sims 4).


3. Are you staff for any other sims sites?

No, I am not a staff member of any other sims site.
4. Would you be willing to commit to the time as indicated above, on MTS?
Absolutely, I will be spending the 15-45 minutes or even more to moderate the objects uploaded.


5. What time zone are you located in? What time of day typically works best for you to be online?

Time zone: (UTC +2 CEST Central European Summer Time) Example city: Rome. My best time to be online goes from 14:00/18:00 to 23:00/01:00.


6. Tell us a little bit about yourself. Whatever you feel like sharing, regardless of whether or not it's directly relevant.

There is not much to say about me, I am a quite average teenager. I am 18 years old and I live in Italy, I love studying English (it is actually my favorite language!) and I adore creating custom content. I am quite skilled with blender and 3D modeling in general and still learning texturing. I am about to start my last year of high school and I am pretty excited to go to University to finally study what I love doing. I would love to be part of this community cause I have always felt that Mod The Sims is a very nice and warm zone, even more after joining the Discord Server, full with willing to help people, always friendly and super kind with me.

Hope you guys will consider me as possible moderator!

5. What time zone are you located in? What time of day typically works best for you to be online?
I'm from the UK so right now the timezone is BST (gmt+1), and then in winter it's gmt. The best time of day for me is the afternoon-evening (from 4pm to 7pm usually), and maybe at night on weekends+friday (after 7pm etc).

6. Tell us a little bit about yourself. Whatever you feel like sharing, regardless of whether or not it's directly relevant.
I've been a long time lurker+downloader on MTS, and I truly respect what goes on behind the scenes- to keep the standards of downloads high on the site. I didn't really know about the whole queue process until I submitted some cc a couple months ago. Anyway, I'd love to help out because I love helping other creators get their stuff working and out there.
I also think my experience in cc-making (mostly CAS stuff) would be able to help me improve the quality of their cc if it's not up to the quality required. For instance, if somebody submitted a custom cupcake object, but it had very blurry plain textures, I'd advise them to change/improve the texture because the quality of their content is at my best interest.
I'd be able to help on sims 4 the most because I've had experience submitting cc to the Sims 4 section and I know how textures/meshes etc work (as I've made my own cc).
While I haven't had a lot of experience in the MTS forums, I'd love to hang out there more. I've spent a lot of time on other forums, so I'm very familiar with writing threads and posts etc.
Lastly, since I'm from the UK, my English is pretty good, and this means that I can convey what I want to say easily and in a way that makes sense. I also think I'm pretty patient, which means I can handle people who are unhappy/confused or somebody who has pretty poor English.

So yeah, I've respected MTS for a while now for being one of the long-standing sims modding sites that really focus on quality cc and helping creators, and I'd love to have the opportunity to really help the site and the new creators who upload here :)

1. What Sim games have you played? What do Sim game(s) you currently spend the most time playing?
I started playing sims back when sims 1 came out, and I have been a faithful follower ever since. Sims 2, 3, and 4 are currently installed on my computer :) At the moment, I play Sims 4 most (Mostly because it doesn't take 25 minutes to open the game like sims 3 does.).

2. Do you make custom content (even if you haven't uploaded any)? If so, for which games (even non-Sims games), and what kinds of items?
I do create Custom Content for the Sims 4. I've dabbled in Sims 3 as well. I mostly do recolors, but I am trying to learn how to mesh for objects and clothing.

3. Are you staff for any other sims sites?
I am not on staff at any other site at this time.

4. Would you be willing to commit to the time as indicated above, on MTS?
I am on MTS for at least that amount of time almost every day, so yes, absolutely, I'd be willing to commit to that.

5. What time zone are you located in? What time of day typically works best for you to be online?
I am located in Massachusetts USA which I am pretty sure is GMT -5. I am usually online in the evenings. (6-8 pm my time)

6. Tell us a little bit about yourself. Whatever you feel like sharing, regardless of whether or not it's directly relevant.
I am a late-20's simmer, with an obsessive personality (especially regarding Broadway and Musical Theatre). I am quite the perfectionist, and many nights I sit at the computer and fine-tune whatever project I'm working on far more than it needs to be. I love to watch Food Network; Chopped, Cupcake Wars, and Cake Wars are my favorite shows. I work a 9-5 office job, and love it (most of the time!) I am a Leo and I enjoy long walks on the beach :P

I would truly adore the opportunity to be involved even more with this website, and I congratulate (in advance) whoever gets chosen!

A day for me starts at 8 am (CEST UTC +2) and ends at 11pm/1am (CEST UTC +2) and Iím mostly online in the evening for checking custom content, but you could always send me questions or ask for help on discord.

6. Tell us a little bit about yourself. Whatever you feel like sharing, regardless of whether or not it's directly relevant.

Kicking off with my name which is Collin, Iím an 18-year-old male. I love sims as long as I can remember and always played it. Iím always polite to people that I donít know well. I always try to help people that are having a problem and do why best to help them as good as I can.

Expecting that you read it this far means that you have read my whole Application, you can now read the hidden message by reading all the first letters of every paragraph (the questions excluded and including this one) which is cupcake

As my username suggests, my name is Sarah. I'm a huge nerd. I went to school to be a computer programmer and game designer but failed a vital class so now I'm doing cosmetology. You could say I'm very proficient with cupcakes.......computers. I'm also an amateur writer and have some short stories and fanfiction posted in the dark recesses of the internet. It'd be an honor to be chosen but I understand there are many applicants.

Alrighty, thanks everyone for your great responses! I'm going to be closing applications on Thursday, July 20th at 1:00 am GMT. :) If anyone is on the fence about applying, make sure you sneak in before the deadline! After Thursday we'll begin to review the applications and talk amongst the staff about who we'd like to ask back for a chat. Once we make the decision I'll send out PMs to everyone who's moving forward, and post again in this thread saying that if you didn't get a PM, unfortunately we've had to pass on your application this time around. If anyone has any last minute questions about the process, now's the time to ask. :)

OK guys, here it goes. Here is a little background on me, I am a sixteen year old Sim "aficionado" that is addicted to playing Sims 2, 3, as well as 4. My all time favourite is Sims 3. Next is Sims 2. Then Sims 4. Sims 4 used to be my go-to game but it kind of bores me. I don't think it has enough things to do in it. Okay, anyway i'm getting off topic. So I live in Zionsville, Indiana and have grown up my whole life around sims. I actually have paintings of sim related things from when I was a child that my mom painted for me. lol. I have also been on Mod The Sims since July 2014 I think. My grandparents are from England so I speak English very well (of course). I took many Spanish (standard Spanish) classes when I was young so I am pretty fluent, for the most part. I have also been taking French for 4 years in school. a Sorry in advance for my long application and thank you all for looking it over!! (and yes I do like Cupcakes) !!! :)

My answers ~

1. I have played Sims 2 through 4 for many many years now. I have attempted to play Sims 1 but it just wasn't my cup of tea. I currently am playing Sims 2 and 3. I am bored with Sims 4 for right now and I will definitely pick it back up soon, as I tend to do a lot. :D

2. I have made a few custom content items but I have never uploaded them. Only for the Sims 3. I made a nicer remake of the Sloppy Jalopy, I took a nice hairstyle with a weird jewel in it and took the jewel out. I have also made a sliding glass door for my Sims! I regularly make new houses and Sims. Actually I make about 10 houses and 5 Sims per month. I have never uploaded any and some I don't even save to my lot bin! :rolleyes:

3. I am not a staff member of any other sites but I am a member of The Sims Forums (for about 6 years) and I have a gold membership for The Sims Resource. I am looking forward to be a staff member and help out my fellow simmers! :rofl:

4. I would be willing to commit the time needed for MTS as I mostly spend more than that each day on it LOL! :p

5. I am located in Zionsville, Indiana and in the Eastern Time Zone. I am typically online everyday as I do online schooling 6 hours a day.

6. Everything about me was at the top of the page! :anime:

Thank you for reading over my application and I cannot wait to help out this community! and some cupcakes !!! :)

It has honestly taken me a few days to try to word this right.
Hello, nice to reply to you. My name is Kasey, i'm 18 so falling on the younger side, every since I've added my first mod to The Sims 4 I've been hooked, and my game will never be the same. I'm honestly still trying to find my place and how i fit into the world in general. I've been trying to get into make mods myself, but i have a crappy laptop. I always have a good chunk of time to give and i would love to learn more and expand my abilities while providing insights to what i think could be AMAZING mods.

I play the Sims 3, Sims 4. Thinking about getting MySims, and a few other random games in the style and charm of Prison Architect. Most of my time for gaming as of now is being used by The Sims 3, I love how open that version was, but with toddlers now being in The Sims 4, I find myself hunting down toddler cc/mods and getting slowly addicted to The Sims 4 again.

I am not a staff for any other sims sites.

I have so much time on my hands just begging to be used up.

I am located in Michigan so that would be EST.

Oh, no it's the Tell Us About you part, I'll try my best but DISCLAIMER: I'm not that exciting.
I spend an UNGODLY amount of time watching Youtube videos..
I look at everyone who has all this raw talent and am amazed that it's even possible. ex: Necrodog and the Toddler Pool, Trampoline he made. AMAZING!
I visit this website wayy to much, with The Sims Resource following behind.

I would love the opportunity to get to go behind the scenes and
learn about what makes MTS tick while making it better.

Thank you for allowing new people in and thank you for reading!

1. What Sim games have you played? What Sim game(s) do you currently spend the most time playing?
I've played all of them extensively. TS3 is my most played by far, and my definite favourite, but I've also put plenty of time into the others (particularly TS4).

2. Do you make custom content (even if you haven't uploaded any)? If so, for which games (even non-Sims games), and what kinds of items?
Yeah. Mostly CAS content for TS3, but also CAS content for TS4 and other types of CC entirely.

3. Are you staff for any other sims sites?
A very inactive Sims subreddit with about 150 subscribers, so no, not really.

4. Would you be willing to commit to the time as indicated above, on MTS?
Absolutely. I'd be happy to have something to do.

5. What time zone are you located in? What time of day typically works best for you to be online?
GMT +1. I'm online 24/7, except late at night, in the morning, and in the afternoon on some weekdays.

6. Tell us a little bit about yourself. Whatever you feel like sharing, regardless of whether or not it's directly relevant.
I'm very passionate about The Sims. I want to make The Sims more fun for myself and others. I'm definitely a gamer, but I also dabble in graphic design and making music. I enjoy helping people. I work in retail, so I happen to know a thing or two about them. I've been on here for five years, and I've been particularly active in the last 3. Helping out is always something I enjoy doing, it's kind of up my alley.

So yeah, let me know. This is just my kind of cupcake...I mean thing.
