Whassup, Boolpropians?

Phew! April was such a pretty month this year, yeah? I hope everyone had a great Easter if they celebrated that, or if not then they just had a great month instead! I wanted to do a friendly reminder that SimNaNoWriMo has been moved to July this year, so buckle up if you're interested in participating. We should hopefully be getting the rules and basics out soon so everyone knows what they're looking at in terms of levels/medals/etc.

Fun announcement is that we'll be hosting this year's Summer Fete in June alongside some Pride Events! It should be a lot of fun and I hope everyone will stop in and enjoy!

I want to give a special shout-out to itsjulie; she's such a fantastic moderator and she runs these events really well, despite whatever is going on for her. Please give her a little love and appreciation - or do it for all your mods! We all work hard around here! And while you're at it, give yourselves some appreciation too! Spread it all over!

May will also be a time of a few fun surprises and games that will be announced shortly after the month has started! Our dear Palmer may need help with a bit of... dirty laundry. ;) Anyways, I think that's all I have for you!

Our challenge focus of this month is not on a challenge at all, but on rotational gameplay! I've noticed quite a few amazing challenges that have cropped up rotational style and want to give a bright kudos for how awesome it is! Whether you're a BACC or just enjoying playing several different families, I think it's awesome! The concept of the play style is to have several families that you each play for one week and then switch to the next in a rotational fashion. There's a lot of flexibility in this style and it seems like a great deal of fun! For those looking for a different way to play, maybe try a Rotational Hood!

May Winners

Congratulations to our new winners!

Wow, thank you so much! What an awesome feature.

Thanks, Mods! Being a Moderator is a busy job, and you're all doing wonderful. :heart:
The community is so positive and caring and that's in no small part to all your efforts.

I'm glad SimNo is during the summer months this year! :D

Congrats to the stories of the month! I love this newslatter, always great to have this newsletter to highlight new things to try.

HUGE thanks to all the mods who make this forum such a lovely, caring, accepting place. I have found some amazing friends through here (and sims in general); my life would not be the same without you in it!
