Thank you to all Patreons! I am deeply thankful for all your donations. I just wanted to say hello to you and make it known you are appreciated. You make running the site worth it.
I don't know how often I will be releasing these updates, but I think you should all know the newest news.
I have signed us on to more federation relays. This means that we will see, and be seen by, more instances in the federated timeline.
It can be difficult to "get into" mastodon. It offers few crumbs to start with, but some people consider that a positive thing. Remember that from your Simstodon account, you can interact with most other Mastodon instances. Try to find people you know, or content creators you enjoy, who are also using the platform. Here is an old post where I recommend people to follow outside of Simstodon: https://simstodon.com/@Plumbob/101317369909543395
You can also check out Trunk for suggestions on who to follow: https://communitywiki.org/trunk You might also consider adding your name and account to Trunk, if you want to.
Finally, you can see who's posting about the Sims 4 on the main social instance and those federated with it here: https://mastodon.social/tags/sims4
There is discussion of The Sims 3 and other Sims games, but it is less common. The Sims 4 tag is pretty well filled by Simstodon, but I want to see us fill those other tags too!
I mean, if you want to.
We have also added some custom emotes. If any Patreons have emoji suggestions, feel free to reply to this post with them. I must admit, I am a Sims 4 person, so if there is any good promotional art, renders, or other materials from older Sims games that would make nice emojis, you need to make me aware of it, thanks.
If you have any suggestions, or just want to chat, you can also do so here in the comments. I am always open to conversation with any current Patreons. Thanks.
