Welcome to the new Living Sims!

The LivingSims website has looked the same for a couple of years, and we thought it was time for an update. Our website now loads much faster, is easier to navigate and works with smartphones and tablets, so you can read our magazine on the go. We also included the latest threads and posts from our forum right here on the main page to keep you up to date.
We hope you enjoy it as much as we do! Let us know what you think in the comments below.

Donation Plea Update

Edit: Update 23/10 2013

We are now halfway to our goal! That means that all of last year is now payed for! Any new donations from now on will go towards paying for the next year’s expenses!

I would like to personally  thank Bridelyn for a large donation. I would also like to thank Enla and the anonymous donors for their generous help!

Because of your generous donations we have a new gift for you all. This time it is from Lis0 who generously donated a stack of collages for us sims 3 players. Grab them at the donation page. They are free for all of the community.

EDIT: Update 6/10 2013

We are now at 250 $ so thank you guys! Lets see if we can’t reach 350 $ within the next 14 days – that will mean that we have raised enough money to cover all of 2012/13 costs! Any money we raise after that will go towards the next year’s costs so we don’t have to do this again any time soon. Once we reach the next goal we will have a gift which is not a house build by me, but something else!

That also means that I have more gifts for the community for you to say thank you for being awesome and helping us reach our goals!

Gift for reaching our second goal – 200 $

Original post 18/9 2013

For those who might have had problems donating on Sunday due to the country setting of the first donation form I set up. It is fixed, so if you wanted to donate and couldn’t please try again.

As of right now we have raised 150 $ out of the 700 $ we are aiming for. Thank you to those who have donated already. When you donate, make sure to put your forum name in the note area or PM me your name on the forum. I would love to thank you probably on the forum.

Become a backer!

In the upcoming issues all donators will have their names listed as LivingSims backers. We really appreciate this!

Drive Gifts

I would like to offer a little bit of incentive for us to reach the goal. For each 100 $ we raise I would like to offer all of the community a gift of a house build by me or another staffer. Let me know in the comments if that should be decorated or not please. Those who donate will get to wish for a style/type of house if they donate more than 3 $ – put your wish in the note area or send me a PM on the forum.

If we do not reach the goal…

If we do not reach our goal of 700 $ within a month, we might have to move our forum and site to a less expensive server and we all know that that will result in more downtime and general annoying crap. So please if you can spare a few bugs, send them our way!

Donation plea

Dear LivingSims Community. It has been two years since we last had a donation drive. In that time I have footed the bill for running the site. At this time I can not afford it on my own. I hope that our generous community will help cover the expenses for running the site and the magazine. I have to ask you dear community to please help us economically. Any amount will help and if you can not help we understand that completely!

Our expenses are: Domain name fee, 1 dropbox pro-account and our servers at mediatemple.net. That amounts to about 350 $ a year. We want to cover the coming year and last year’s expenses in this drive, so that amounts to 700 $  which is our goal for this donation drive.

We will of course not come asking for donations again until we have we have used all of the money you donate which should not be until a year or two has passed. The donation link will be up until we reach the amount we need and then we will remove it.  A big thank you to all who donate.

We sincerely hope you will help. Any amount would be appreciated!

Macthekat, Editor in Chief
