its funny how the girl at retail sims closed the sites yet left all the google adsense right open so she can still get a few clicks and make a few extra cents...

But then it becomes commercial. I am sorry, you can argue you all you want but if your making 3,4 thousands dollars a month, that is commercial. Why is it so right for them to go against EA's rules and so wrong for us to go against theirs. I really just dont get the argument here. All I see is that we are doing what EA intended to be done and they are breaking all the rules but yet everyone gets on us in their defense. Not to mention the very clear statement that all Game content is copyright EA and EA said we can share it. I dont not see what is so hard to understand here. No one has come up with one good argument for this and for the most part has completely ignored the question all together.

Ok, stepping away now.


Yepper, I'll agree with you - it's definitely commercial.  And please don't feel I'm ignoring you, I'm not.  You've actually put me a LOT more on the fence about the custom content issue (not piracy - that's a different ball of wax).  HOWEVER, I feel strongly enough about people having the right to sell things at the price they see fit if they created it that I'd feel very hypocritical downloading from here.  But I'm very much revising my initial opinion of what THIS PARTICULAR SITE is doing (I emphasize this because as several people have pointed out, software piracy is NOT taking place).  I see both sides of the argument, and at this point I really don't feel that either party is in the right or the wrong, though I do feel certain individuals are definitely in the wrong (see a couple of my other posts on that one).


Ok back on.

I read your other post and you are right that is wrong. I respect your principles to not download and I also respect the fact that you have taken the time to at least consider the other side. Most that come here, as you have probably noticed, dont even bother to try and understand. They also have never bothered to answer the question either. Actually they come back with all this about the meshes being theirs. I will agree that they made the meshes and the meshes are theirs, right up to the point they put them online specifically for the sims 2. That is the point that they no longer become theirs and actually become Maxis. As I said there is no gray area here. It is plan and simple English and appears on every site.
I also respect a person's right to earn money. The more the better. But this is the only time that a company has allowed so many, to make so much off from copyright material. I also agree that EA allows them to and I dont have a problem with that either. The problem comes in when they start yelling that we are stealing. We have nothing here of theirs. Everything on this site belongs to Maxis/EA. We dont use their bandwidth at all. Nobody is hot linking to their files. They should not have a problem with us sharing what belongs to Maxis/EA.


i dont think anyone could argue with that  :wink: but it seems like everyone has similar points so why do we have to keep explaining ourself?

Check my www Wink

Why Lacky, we not supposed to mention it here?


thank you sherry lol i didn't know what you ment by www lol but are they worth signing up for?


I think so cause I am a mod at the site lol, some people here have different opinions.

We have gifts that people make and good conversation if you are into that thing, there are plenty of nice people around.

Plus if you have specific request that haven't been put up here or that you are having touble pinpointing we are good for that too.

Downloading files is not as easy... you have to request them from someone who has them, or make a little list of the site of things you want and someone will send you a link for those items in a pm.  It's not super hard I don't think, but not as easy as the directory here.

So I think it has it's ups, registration is easy though, so you can always give it a shot.  If it's not your thing we have no hard feelings either way.

Glad we could win you over, in some small way Smiley

HotNWet...down girl...See this is what we're talking about...you need to calm down a bit, you make a good point, but you come across like an over-excited rottweiler...Smiley

Avic has made their choice, and that is to be respected, a zillion exclaimation marks aren't nessessary.


:lol:  I'm actually pretty hot about the Rose thing.  And I am SERIOUSLY considering contacting PayPal about it.  

And HnW, believe it or not, I know a thing about web sites, too.  I'm a smidge older than 17, and I've been working online for about 10 years.  And I know a LOT of graphic artists that got shut down because their bandwidth was killing them.  Granted, that was back before you could get scads of transfer for not a lot of money, but still.  But you know what?  Making money because someone wants what you've made or built is part of the American Dream.  Otherwise all we'd ever be able to do is work for corporate America, ya know?

As for the sites I donate to, I've chucked $5 here and there, but I regularly (about every three months or so - I wait for a buildup of updates) donate to TSR, Sims Connection, and Well Dressed Sim.


i like TSR, im always confused thought do the creators and webmasters make money? cause you hear about sites like sims sisters moving there and stuff.. sims connection is cool they have some cute hair!! well dressed sims has some pretty good stuff as well.[/b]
