Salut, Boolpropians!
My, my, it's been one heck of a busy February, so much so that I had to miss the first of the month by thiiiiiiis much. Better late than never, they always say, right? Thursday nights are just not nights I can respond quickly in. Anyways, I have a laundry list of announcements I need to express, so let's hop to it!

FIRST announcement to give is that the Golden Plumbobs have officially concluded! Congratulations to all the nominees and winners! Thank you to all who participated, and reminder that next year those who won will NOT be eligible for the same categories, so everyone has a fair chance! Special shoutout to Blamsart for being the mastermind behind this year's Golden Plumbobs, please be sure to give her a big 'thank you, mighty overlord' (or just a 'thank you' I suppose will suffice).

The Valentine's Day Events are wrapped up and concluded, with a special thanks to itsjulie for handling these events on top of settling down in the newer Star System we implemented around the holidays. Without Julie, none of these events would be possible! Our next set of large events coming in should arrive in April, I hope you're ready for it! In the meantime, please enjoy the Boolpropian House Chat-a-thons in your TGBO Houses!

Something else fun to look into is Boolprop's DISCORD Server! Heather has been working very hard to clean it up and make it a fun place for everyone to come and chat!

Finally, some changes to what many of you are very familiar with in the Story Boards have taken place! Please, please take note of this: ALL COMPLETED STORIES WILL NO LONGER BE REPORTED! On the contrary, when you complete your story you should PM myself or Blamsart with the link to your completed thread. We can hand out the appropriate medals and this also allows us to keep track of moved stories for our lists (my newsletter lists and Blamsart's completed stories list). Your thread will remain where it is for one week then we will move it to the appropriate completed board so it still has time to be noticed/commented on by other Boolpropians before it leaves the main story boards.

This month our focus is on Apocalypse Challenge! I've seen many brave simmers dash off in hopes of conquering all the restrictions that hold onto this extremely-detailed challenge! There are many nights for the hunched over their spreadsheets and strategies as they decide how they'll make their next move in this intricate game that makes chess look like a simple game of hopscotch. There are many rulesets available and it applies for all games! Do you dare attempt it yourself? Should you and succeed, you'll walk away with this fantastic medal: Image
Go on out and support your local harbinger of the Apocalypse!

March Winners

Congratulations to our new winners!

Thanks to all for participating in last month's Kudos! I don't offer a reward this time, but I would really appreciate if you stopped by and offered another Kudos to a story you're reading. It takes 30 seconds and will make someone's whole day (or week)! I'm currently working out a system to reward those who leave Kudos', but I'd like to see people doing it just because they like a story and less because they want something for it. As such, this is a work in progress. All of you who did last month's will be rewarded your PULPER STAR for March's cards as soon as this Newsletter gets posted!
New Member Stories this Month: Give 'em a warm, Boolprop welcome!
