FEBRUARY 2019

Image

Welcome to the February House News letter,
which you might think is over a week later, but in fact, it isnt, (sly smirk)
as I decided earlier this month that the house news letter will be coming out on the 15th of the month, from now on.
This just gives me a little more time to get everything done without having to rush.


First I would like to fix up a little confusion that I have noticed going on with the star cards.
Members seem to be under the impression that they only have one month to collect up their stars for medals.

That is incorrect.

Your Star Cards, are a permanent fixture and are not changed monthly.
However, what is done at the end of each month .... the "donated" stars are taken to be converted into House points.
Members who have stated that they are collecting for a medal ... their stars are left alone and remain on the star card.
So if it takes you 6 months to collect up enough stars to earn yourself a medal, then so be it.
Medal collecting member stars will remain on the card until they are converted into a medal, or the member decides they want to donate them to their house.

I hope that helps to clear up the confusion!!

Image

We don't have a lot of changes to tell you about this month,
other than we are discussing a few changes that might or might not happen to the Star system.

One change that will definitely be starting from the Easter Events in April.
The Falling Stars event will be changing a little.
Only the falling stars that you catch will be kept on the falling stars thread, and put towards a medal.
All stars earned from the other Easter events will go directly onto your Star Cards and NOT onto the falling stars thread.
And ....
We will OCCASIONALLY be throwing a Pulper star for you to catch.

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Blams has been working very hard on organising the Completed Sim Stories forums.
and she has asked me to pass this message onto everyone:

The Sims 2, Sims 3 and Sims 4 Completed Stories each now have two new threads with a full comprehensive list of the completed challenges and stories!
Feel free to check it out~

DISCORD

Since November 2017, Boolprop have had an Offical Discord Server,
which is run by Heather.
This is where a lot of Boolprop members happily hang out together.

Heather has recently set up for us, individual House chat rooms for our five Houses.
There you can chat freely with your fellow house members, You can get to know each other better,
and even discuss house related stuff in the privacy of your own space.

so for those of you who haven't found their way to the Boolprop Discord Server,
you are very welcome, and please come along and join us.

JANUARY CHECK INS

The check ins for January went really well.
Participating House Member earned themselves quite a lot of stars from the daily routine of checking in.

The total number of stars earned in each house.

Plumbob ...... 18 stars
Llama ......... 16 stars
Smustle ....... 13 stars
Woohoo ....... 11 stars
Motherlode ... 10 stars

Image

JANUARY STAR TASK

The challenge was to collectively post 100 different paintings.

LLAMA ........... 162 paintings
SMUSTLE ......... 49 paintings
MOTHERLODE ... 46 paintings
PLUMBOB ........ 30 paintings
WOOHOO ........ 27 paintings

Llama definitely came out on top with the January star task.

In fact, Llama were the only house to complete the challenge and they did it in style!!
I would like to mention Candiedgala, in particular, who's enthusiasm in these event's is amazing!!

So Llama is the only house that earned themselves a house star,
for last months star task!!

REMINDERS

Valentines Events

I hope that you are enjoying the Valentines Events that are well under way.

Valentines Bingo ... All of the Bingo numbers are now out.
So anyone who does not have a completely blacked out card and has not received the Bingo medal yet, should check their cards for missed numbers.
You will have a few days before the thread is locked. I would hate for anyone who has played to miss out on the Bingo medal,
so please check your cards!!!

The Valentines Colouring Page ....
Just a reminder that if you take up the outline challenge ... you have until the Easter Events start to do it.
The Colouring page thread will be moved to the events section once the Valentines Events are closed.

Let's Build it!
This event needs to feel some of your love as it has become a little neglected of late.
This months theme is a "Romatically Themed Date Area" to tie in with Valentines.
So why not pop a long and have a go.
For February we will be giving any one who takes part in this event, a Pulper star.

The Golden Plumbobs

Just to remind you that the Golden Plumbob voting is happening this month.
If you haven't already voted, please pop along and take part.

Boolprop Quilt

Again, I would like to remind everyone again, about the BOOLPROP QUILT and HOUSE QUILTS
from the 13th Birthday Events.

Not many members have submitted their simselves photograph to be added to the quilt.
so, if you have not yet done it, can you please pm me a photograph to be included.

House Quilts are still very static ... so I would like to nudge all 5 houses into working towards getting their house quilt completed.
and like I have said before .... any problems questions or you need help ... you know how to reach me!

Image

On a personal note ....

I am planning to start clearing some space in imgr where I store my graphics on line.
Which means that I will be cleaning out personalized tags that I have made for member.
So can you please make sure that you have any tags that have been made for you, saved to your computer,
and are being used from your own on line storage provider.

Any tags from Xmas 2017 - 12th Birthday and Halloween 2018 are the tags I plan to clean out.
So if you are still using tags that are being directly linked to my storage space, they might soon be disappearing on you.

I will still have any tags that have been made on my computer, which I can give you again if need be,
however, they will no longer be in my online storage space.

Image

Have Your Say!!

Our "Sounding Board" in House Boolprop for all house members to use.
If you have any problems, questions, thoughts, suggestions, idea's ect relating to anything in the TGBO section
Please speak out!! If we all work together, we can make this a better experience for all of us!!!

lastly ...

If you spot one of these little guys around the forum before the end of February
Pm Julie and find out what they are hiding in their envelopes.
