Story Newsletter: January 2019

Happy New Year, Boolpropians!
Boy do I have a fantastic, slightly-upgraded newsletter for you today! We have a fair bit of news-news needing to be taken care of, so let's cut to the chase! First things first (I'm a realist), congratulations to Blamsart on her promotion to moderator. She's starting her moderatorship off with quite a bang as she will be running this years Golden Plumbobs - the nominations for which will start today! Fear not, if you wish to know more you can read all about it here! You can also find other threads for discussion and questions here and here, respectively!

In TGBO (The Great Boolpropian Olympics) news, I'm super excited to announce that Julie and I are both now on rotational schedules for which houses we're members of, we've got a lot of super neat events going on and we plan to make 2019 a fantastic year for Boolprop! You can read more about it in Julie's House Newsletters released after the first week of the month, found here! The Mod Squad is making plans, so you better buckle up!

In slight relation to that, this month there will be a release of the official Star System! A LOT of these pertain to stories and challenges, so come next newsletter I'll link up the full list so everyone knows where they can find it! Your challenges, legacies and stories mean something to you, and now they can mean something to you as a member of Boolprop!

Some slight changes to this newsletter is happening (as you'll likely see). I've organized some new banners and a shiny new medal for Story of the Month winners: Image
This isn't all, though, as instead of 3 winners, we'll only be having 2 every month, and I'm adding a few more restrictions to it (if they hadn't already existed because it's nearly been a year and I've slept since then).
In order to qualify for Story of the Month, you must:
- Have a thread here on Boolprop.
- Have more than one post on that thread.
- Have more than one chapter for your story released.
- Have updated within the past 6 months.

Because there's a new medal, I'm willing to put everyone back onto the list to receive it, however I'm going to favor those who have not received any medal/award for the first half of the year and I'll address things from there. I will be drawing for the story of the month on the 15th of the month prior (assuming I'm not totally swamped). I'd like to stick some feelers out and ask if people like being contacted prior about receiving the award, or if I should just switch to how this newsletter's method will be - which is surprise! You've won! So I'll be running the poll at the top of this newsletter for this month!

Anyways, that's really all for the news I have for you. Be sure to check out the new TGBO threads for house points and games!

Come, let's sit and have a talk about a challenge, in particular... a challenge that's as old as time itself... yes, that's right. We're talking about the Legacy challenge. This challenge with many faces and many variations - this challenge that you can mold into your own. One founder: (and in most cases) nine descendants - all against the great (sim) world! I won't link to all the ridiculous number of challenge rules and variations there are, not just because I don't have that kind of time, but because the true wonder that is the Legacy is anything you make it to be. As we're all part of the forum, I wanted to give this shoutout that if you've done a legacy before or if you're doing one now, we support you in your effort to see the end of a lineage. Whether you're going for 10 generations or 100, Boolprop is invested and we care about what you're doing.
That being said, I think a lot of people have forgotten the neat things that we currently have regarding legacies.
In particular, did you know that at generation 5 of a posted legacy you get 30 points for your house? Not only that, but we're talking about stars too?
Hit generation 10 in a legacy, and you can get one of three medals (depending on your game, of course): Sims 2 Image | Sims 3 Image | Sims 4 Image

Let's give a shout out to all of our amazing writers here on Boolprop throughout 2019! I have a challenge I want to intiate - I want you to give at least ONE Kudos to another author on Boolprop here this year. That's your challenge; ready, set, go! It takes 60 seconds to leave a nice (anonymous if you'd like) comment on a story that has taken many, many hours to make. Share some love today and let that author know you appreciate the time they spent!
New Member Stories this Month: Give 'em a warm, Boolprop welcome!

New Stories this Month: Stop by and support our awesome members' new stories!

Anniversaries: Congratulations on a(nother) year with your story!

Some Kudos: You've been noticed!
  • As Far As the World Goes, by Noctie has come back onto Boolprop to continue it's awesome storytelling! We're so glad to have you back, especially for the awesomely edited updates!
  • Cororon and Tox brought back Mike Malone - The Dirty Cop updates recently, and I just wanted to say thanks for always giving me a good laugh! The snippets are funny and always brighten my day!
  • I wanted to show some love to queentigress with the Kalaya ISBI. I love all the themes of your generations - so creative! I also dig the current house, but green's my favorite color so what can I say?
  • Props to klmnz and The Legend Legacy which has come back after a hiatus to bring us more awesome legacy chapters! Welcome back and I can't wait to read more!
  • I planned to give kudos to The Landgraabacy by dashingsyndrome for coming back after a stint away, however there was also an anonymous kudos left for them, for: "coming back after a year long hiatus and continuing the hilarity!"
  • There's a kudos here for Teresa and her Shannon: Sliding Doors challenge, saying kudos for "play testing the challenge for TS4, and showing everyone how entertaining idiot sims are in this iteration." I concur! Great work, Teresa!
  • One more kudos written by somebodysangel for The Moonwisp Chronicles by Voguishstorm, giving kudos for "Working through each and every obstacle that the Moonwisps come up with, and keeping us all entertained throughout."
