The Sims 3 Community
-What Makes It Fail-
An unscientific and completely bias examination
In the following examination I seek to prove that the Sims 3 community fails, with the exception of a few unofficial forums and blogs, I shall attempt to convince you of this with the occasional solid fact and piece of evidence, but mainly with clever font choice and use of humor at the expense of EA's 'Spotless Reputation'
The format of a report ends here, Now it is just a rant, though still on the subject of what makes TS3 community fail.
The first problem is obviously the fact that due to EA's general laziness the forums are a complete shambles, every other day something goes wrong, and there is some sort of warped idea that every ten minutes they need a new feature (like the new 'mypage') despite the fact that adding new features invariably makes the forums even more of a mess.
The second problem is that despite the huge number of awesome simmers in the community they are outnumbered by rather dull simmers attempting to get attention by making topics about there new extremely generic sim, and then of course there are the infinite supply of trolls who though not being overly large in number have a very large presence in the forum, and that is due in part to EA's inability to ban a troll, but seemingly highly trained ability to ban the awesome simmers mentioned earlier.
The third problem is one that I myself am party to, is that most simmers who are currently active on the forum, are unlikely to remain active, which means when you do manage to find the other awesome simmers its unlikely you will all still be enjoying each others company in a few months time because some of them will have been put off the forums by problems one or two, or even both.
And when it seems that the official forums are collapsing around you, you retreat unto blogger and wordpress. And sanctuary may also be found in a simmer made forum and it is here that the awesome simmers may reside in peace until the day that the official forum is made into the great and mighty dwelling place of simmers that we all wish it to be...
And it is based on this that I conclude that the unofficial forums shall have a very long life and that the (Official) Sims 3 Community Fails.
