Story Thread Formatting?

Postby Jase » December 15th, 2019, 6:38 pm

Hi fellow simmers...
Hopefully this is the right spot on the forums for this question. Also, I hope that I didn't inadvertently overlook the answer when I was exploring the forums today.

I'm interested in sharing one of my many legacies and participating in a few challenges here; however, I'm a bit confused on what format to post. When reading other story threds here, I've noticed members link to WordPress instead of creating a full post on the forums with their pictures inserted. Is this the preferred format here?

Normally, on previous forums I've make posts on the forum with bbcode inserted pictures from my Imgur gallery. So, since I don't have a WordPress account, would I need to start one before I would be able to share my sim stories with the community here?

Again, I do apologize if the answer is already posted somewhere and I've missed it. I really did search, but there's a lot of info here. :oops:

Thanks!

Hi Jase!

We are a community of simmers who do tend to post on other platforms (such as Blogspot, Dreamwidth or Wordpress - or the rest) however, you are more than welcome to put pictures on a post in here! We generally recommend doing the post in a spoiler beyond the first picture if only to help those who have slower internet/trouble with loading so they can load one set of pictures at a time. Ultimately though, we're not crazy strict about particular formatting rules here, so feel free to be creative and do whatever suits you most!

Thank you for the reply, Livvielove!
Sorry for the late response myself, but things are super busy around here getting ready for Christmas. I'll definitely be posting a story when I have time, just need to decide which one to start with! lol
