To the Sims Community:

Thanks for the good times, guys. 
It's been a fun ride these five and a half years. When I joined the community, I was a freshly graduated girl working on her first job. You were with me when I applied for a scholrship in the U.S., when I won it, and during my adventures in a foreign country. 
I had a lot of fun sharing my pictures, my quirky fandom-ish episodes, my silly story and my attempts at figuring out Photoshop (and you have no idea how much my experience doing Bodyshop stuff is helping  when I design materials for my students/clients).
However, the interest in the Sims is long gone, to be honest. This has been coming for months, actually. So, it is time I sign out for good. 
I'm going to miss you all! Have a great time, wherever you are! 
(And enjoy the University EP tomorrow too!)
P.S. Everything I've done and created will stay online, of course. Hopefully, Mediafire won't play another prank on us!

Mediafire Update

I just got the following E-mail from Mediafire:

Hello Kate,

Thank you for contacting MediaFire. I apologize for this inconvenience as it appears these files were removed in error. While we have uncovered the bug which caused this problem and resolved it, we unfortunately weren’t able to restore your deleted files.

However we can assure you that your files are no longer at risk, and that you can continue to upload and distribute files freely. If there’s anything else we can do to help please let us know.

We appreciate you bringing this to our attention.


*Redacted* / Abuse Department

However,  they placed another strike against my account yesterday morning, this time for a file named “Super Secret Santa Build Mode” . The file was also removed.

Hopefully, this situation will end with this e-mail. 

Update: The files have been recovered and re-uploaded thanks to the awesome people at Tumblr! :)

Heads up!

I just got two e-mails from Mediafire, telling me they have removed two files from my account:

- A hair I named "Pirate Hair", which I am 100% sure it's a re-texture from Nouk (a free mesh). I guess the confusion comes from its name "Pirate". Guess I will re-name it Nouk's Donna Hair in the future to avoid confusion.

- A recolor of a mesh from Shannanigan (TSR), which is also now free. And the mesh is not included in the file. 

I'm worried they are going to terminate my account because I now have "two strikes". 

Edit: Just contacted mediafire. Let's hope this works!

Simlish Creations is 100% back in action!

Tonight, I used part of my Birthday money and some of my earnings to upgrade my Photobucket account to Pro, considering I ran out of bandwidth again in less than 24 hours. This time I went with a full year renewal because it is much cheaper than monthly payments in the long term (as I did back then) and this way I can forget about this issue until August 2012 :D.

So, yup, this site has all the preview pics back. I will even make a new banner to spice things up a bit. I changed the layout a few weeks ago and completely revamped the tag system (it's now a complete list sorted by categories on the right sidebar), so you can now easily find everything I've ever done.

I am not upgrading my Mediafire account, though. That would be too expensive for me and so far it hasn't been necessary. I just hope Mediafire never decides to add a timer for each download like 4share... that would be annoying and I'd definitely look for a new host then.

I really appreciate all your supportive messages after my last announcement, including your incredibly generous offers to host my pics. Thank you SO much, but don't worry, I'm sure this purchase is more than enough to keep this small site running from now on :).

Just *please* refrain from hotlinking my pictures. Pro account or not that is not nice at all (it is stealing in a way) and it's what forced me to acquire this upgrade. Thanks!

Small Announcement Regarding Simlish Creations

Due to financial issues (not too severe, but right now I'm not in the position to splurge on hobbies) I had to cancel both my Mediafire and Photobucket accounts for Simlish Creations. I was able to pay for both of them for almost two years, so I think that was a good run for a small Custom Content site :D

It seems that my Mediafire account was not affected by the downgrade, because most of my individual files are small (less than 5 Mb each) and I currently don't have so many downloads.

However, Photobucket locked my account due to bandwidth issues two days after I began my "cycle". I have no freaking idea why I have drained 10Gb worth of bandwidth in such a short amount of time (I hope no one is hotlinking my pics elsewhere), but this means that there won't be preview pics of most of my stuff until the 24th.

I am trying to upload my new pics on LJ Scrapbook from now on, but I won't go back and change ALL my pics because that would be insane.

I apologize for the inconvenience!
