FOUNDER SUBMISSION POST: MARCH/APRIL

Aaaand, I'm a day late. Not a good precedent, is it? Without further ado, however, here is your founder submission post for the remainder of March and the entirety of April. Founder submission will close April 30 at midnight EST.

Here is a reminder of the rules. Some of the more important or changed points have been bolded for emphasis.


1. Four founders per person per game.

2. Founders must be CC free and packaged with BASEGAME-ONLY content. For the Sims 3, sliders can be used, but please mention on your picture you have used custom sliders.

3. Sims 2 founders should be in .Sims2Pack form. Sims 3 founders should be in .sim form. Sims 4 founders should be in a .zip with all the appropriate files OR shared on the gallery and tagged #pixel-trade.

4. All teaser images should be 600 x 600 pixels or smaller. Please include images of your sims all dolled up (if you have dolled them up) and a picture of how they're packaged, with their clothing and hair. This makes it easier to recognise them in Bodyshop / Create A Sim. Please remember; one image per sim! If you want to include any descriptions, please do so on the image itself.

5. Comments are screened. Mods will be testing your files to make sure everything shows up ok !If this is your first time posting please read the rules and refer back to previous submission posts for further info.


If you have any questions, feel free to PM me directly!
Hi everyone, and thanks to everyone who voted in the poll! The votes are now closed and tallied, with a majority of the votes being "yes" and "yes but not every month" (though I do appreciate the honesty of the one person who voted that they wouldn't be interested!). I've kind of decided on a compromise between the two. The idea is that every two months there will be a collection post. The collection post will be open for 2 months at a time, and at the end of the second month, the Founder Collection will actually be posted. Rather than the usual 2 founders per month rule, you will be allowed to submit 4 founders per round up post (2 for each month). Your founders may be all from one game, or any combination of games in between as long as it does not exceed 4.

For example:
The founder collection post is up for March/April.
Person A submits 2 Sims 4 founders on the first day of March.
Person B submits 4 Sims 2 founders over the course of March & April.
Person C submits 1 Sims 3 founder on the last day of the April.
Person B submits 2 Sims 2 founders AND 2 Sims 3 founders in the middle of April.
All of the above would be valid submissions provided they followed the founder submission rules.


As a reminder, the rules are as follows (slightly edited by me to reflect the poll and the release of Sims 4):

RULES

POLL: More Founder Collections?

Hi everyone! I'm not sure if you remember me - my name is Bea, and I'm one of the maintainers of pixel_trade. I've been on constant off/on hiatus for the last 4 years because of university. Lately I've been thinking a lot about the community, how much fun I had here, and some of the super unique sims and sim challenges that came out of pixel_trade. I've been a member of this community for a long time, and I would love to see more community-based interactions happen!

That said, this poll was inspired by that feeling. The last founder collection was January 2014, a little over a year ago. I know that many people have moved to simblrs/tumblr as a way of keeping their sims stories, but I also feel that tumblr would also be an appropriate way to post founder collections as well, if that was something people were interested in. We could have a round-up post on the community here, as well as a place to submit them to on tumblr!

This poll is to gauge interest. For those not familiar with the founder collections, or new to the community, the rules are as follows:

1. Two founders per person per game. Theoretically you can submit four founders as long as two are Sims 2 sims and two are Sims 3 sims.

2. Founders must be CC free and packaged with BASEGAME-ONLY content. For the Sims 3, sliders can be used, but please mention on your picture you have used custom sliders.

3. Sims 2 founders should be in .Sims2Pack form and Sims 3 founders should be in .sim form.

In the past, some founder collections have been themed, others have not. Themes could be completely optional, or something incorporated in the redux (we could have a later poll to decide that).

I'll be spreading this post about on tumblr, so hopefully more people will vote than just us oldbies who are clinging to LJ. Without further ado!
