Have any questions regarding this event? Just want to talk about it? Do it here!

The first round of featured legacies & stories will have 4 stories featured, rather than the regular 2! It will come out next week on Boolprop's birthday, Monday, November 24th! Every feature after that will be on a Sunday.

Thanks Chase

Do people like normal legacies or legacies with plot? What if the player can't stage things, would you still read the legacy?

Not everything has to be plotted and staged to make it interesting, sometimes a strictly observational legacy works too. People's interests are as varied as the people themselves after all.

Pictures don't sell legacy's for me. Their just a sweet bonus. What sells me is personality. If I can connect with the characters, then I like it. If it's funny, I like it. Personally I love plot. It doesn't have to be anything major. Maybe some couple drama, once in a while. I really love that. However, if you have characters and overall funness, then plot isn't necessary, but always appreciated.

That doesn't make much sense... I guess I look for character. What makes it different from everyone else's.

Oh, is this really just random, or is it about other things?

Some of my favorite legacies were 100% observation, personally :) Some of my other favorites have been plot-driven. Generally I like stories that are light-hearted and don't get dragged out very much—though I've definitely cried reading a few :shifty:

The way the stories are selected is by listing all stories updated since, in this case, November 1st, assigning them each a number, then putting those numbers through random.org. So, yup, it's random :P

Thank you Ani-Mei. That does make sense.

Oh my goodness Chase, I thought you meant early by a couple hours not an entire day! Oh well I love it! Especially getting people's point of view of Sims 4 since I myself don't dare to get too close right now.

So cool to see one of the winners actually officially just joined this month! I know it was a random find, but still what a better way to welcome rockinchica!

Congrats to all four of you being the first four, I will be reading you all!

Oh nooooo my interview is so long compared to everyone else's! :sigh: Sorry for all the blather.

Anyway, I just wanted to say thanks to everyone involved for featuring my story, and thanks to Chase for setting up the interview! I'm going to find some time to read the other featured stories - I love WYDCs, and I haven't looked at a lot of Sims 4 stuff, so I'm excited!
