First off, let me explain the reason for this post:
I am a member of the message boards of Newsround (a British "kids news" programme). On these boards is a computer games section. It's a nice little community. People are always asking for help on games and I and others try to help them out. But there is one problem. This problem is called "The Sims".
I have nothing against the game, but there are far too many posts made about the game and its various incarnations. You try to have a nice conversation with someone and BAM! It's shoved right to the bottom of the page under a torrent of messages that go "hey every1 i have the sims and i think its c00l!". These messages are pointless and annoying when you have to scroll through 20 of them to find a "non sim" message.
Every month, members can vote for a new message board that they'd like. After a month passes, that board is replaced with a new one thats been voted for. Me and other members requested a Sims board, so we could get rid of the aforementioned messages. Unfortunatly, it is looking like it is losing.
So please visit this link and vote for "The Sims 2".
It'll only take about 5 seconds and it will really help me and others out. Thanks.
