Disclaimer: This is a Sims fan site. Website administration has no affiliation with Electronic Arts, Maxis, or any individuals involved in Sims development past or present. This website maintains a Patreon account solely to help cover hosting and other costs. But it is run not-for-profit, to benefit the fans and players of EA's Sims series. No money is taken, or will ever be taken, in exchange for any copyrighted content.
We are a community made for players and fans of EA/Maxis game franchise The Sims. Including Custom Content, CC Finds and Lookbooks, Community advice, Sims stories, Sims OC's, just becoming friends with your fellow Simmers, and anything else! We are here for every game in the Sims franchise, and are a progressive and LGBTQIA+ friendly community.
Members must be older than 13+ to join. We do want adults to be free to post content they enjoy, but they do have a responsibility to keep a safe environment for those users between 13-18.
Mastodon has a built in content warnings feature. Please include a content warning when discussing the following topics:
Just use content warnings liberally. Thanks.
Usernames, avatars and header images should be suitable for all audiences.
Sims in the Baby, Toddler, and Child life stages are never allowed to be depicted in a sexualized manner.
Pet/Animal sims, for example, Small and Large Dogs, Cats, and Horses, are never allowed to be depicted in a sexualized manner.
Sims in the Teen life stage generally cannot be shown in a way more sexually provocative than possible in the unmodded, non-cheated, and non-glitched Sims game. However, teen pregnancy and non-explicit implied sex between teens is allowed.
Since this website uses Patreon funding, we do not allow content that violates Patreon's rules regarding the topic. Other than what our rules already cover, Patreon also prohibits glorifying and pornifying some fringe content.
Incest is specifically banned by Patreon. Pornography between family members, regardless of blood relation or lack thereof, is banned.
Necrophilia is also singled out by Patreon, which is considered sex with dead corpses. Sex with undead occult/supernatural Sims like ghosts or zombies or the grim reaper does not count as necrophilia.
Read Patreon's guidelines on adult content here.
Sims stories and fiction portraying any these issues in a non-erotic, non-pornographic manner, which do not endorse acts of sexual assault or animal abuse, are allowed. Unfortunately, these issues occur in real life, and you are welcome to explore them in your Sims stories.
For the safety of our younger user base, we do not allow any adults who are sexually attracted to minors, regardless of what Sims content they may post. (Obviously, teenagers and young adults attracted to other people within their own age and peer group are completely different and are alright to join.)
For rules involving non-sims adult content, use common sense and follow similar rules as we approach to Sims content.
Any conduct intended to stalk or harass other users, or to impede other users from utilizing the service, or to degrade the performance of the service, or to harass other users, or to incite other users to perform any of the aforementioned actions, is also disallowed.
Advocating for bigotry against marginalized groups will be removed from the public timeline, and may result in account suspension and revocation of access to the service, depending on the severity. This includes but is not limited to Racism, Sexism, Misogyny, Homophobia, Transphobia, Queerphobia, Dyadism, Xenophobia, Antisemitism, Islamophobia, Ableism, and Classism. We consider TERF and Truscum ideologies to be different flavors of transphobic hate speech, and neither are welcome here.
Unfortunately, bigotry is a part of the real world, and some people may want to portray that in their Sims stories. So remember that context and framing are important! Please mark these instances with content warnings. Fiction should not reinforce real bigotry, but we understand that due to the serial nature of Sims stories, it can be at times hard to judge. We also understand that many writers here may not be experienced in how to write this accurately. As such, moderators have the policy of taking the portrayal of bigotry in fictional stories in good faith, unless proof arises that it does reflect the author's own bigotry, or the bigotry is incredibly overt edgelord garbage.
We do not allow content illegal in Germany and/or France, such as holocaust denial or Nazi symbolism. We do not allow conduct promoting fascist ideology. This is both in user toots, and in Sims content. For the safety of our user base, we do not allow any fascists to use our community, regardless of what Sims content they may post.
We cannot promise an environment which is always pleasant and free from disagreements, drama, flame wars, and discourse. We don't have any rules against internet arguments. Moderators are not a conflict resolution team. Moderation is a last resort action, and you will need to take responsibility to block anyone you don't want to see.
However, you are more than welcome to report people violating the rules. This is not like other social networks, reports do get acted upon, even if it may take some time. Even if you can "just block them", we will still act on reports of users and instances who violate our rules.
Please do not promote or commit any illegal activity on this server. Do not get us in legal hot water.
We have a "don't ask, don't tell" policy when it comes to pirated software and programs.
This is an English-language instance, and moderators all speak English. Languages other than English are welcome here, but the moderation team may be less effective at dealing with incidents which arise in other languages. Please be aware of that fact, and patient with us.
These terms of service may be changed at any time without notice. We will try and keep members informed of major changes.
These provisions notwithstanding, the administration of the service reserves the right to revoke any user's access permissions, at any time, for any reason.
(Do not be afraid of this disclaimer. This is standard on many social media sites, to prevent lawsuits over service termination. We are not in the business of frivolous account terminations, but we still must and do reserve this right.)
Bots directly related to the Sims series of videogames, and it's fanbase/fan created content, are allowed on this instance. Any other kind of bots or botting is not allowed, and we recommend using the bots in space instance instead.

Simstodon silences and suspends instances on the advice of dzuk-mutant's blockchain. Of that list, most are suspended, but those which appear to partake in one-off instances of harassment are silenced instead. I have chosen to take no action on the corporate-run instances at the moment. If you wish to know the status of a specific instance, or need us to block an instance, you may DM the @Plumbob account about these issues at any time.
