I know I'm a bit late to the party, but seeing your post I couldn't help but laugh. I have had thoughts like that sharing cc with friends to reduce the annoyance of mediafire and adfly.

I don't know how many of you remember Simbella's
You could only get their files via email......no ads there

darksyngr I am quite surprised how many have responded to this thread, clearly there's a lot of people getting fed up with the amount of ads, and it seems to be getting worse

I'm one of those that don't go to places like TSR unless there is a link to a certain thing that has to be downloaded..
I'm not sure about all the Sims sites and who has what ads but what I hate is places like Photobucket and tinypic I haven't been in my Photobucket in quiet a while and tinypic I don't use very often anymore now I use Servimg.com..no ads..

I love just reading all the angry and swear thlol on here..it's funny in a way..and in others I find things very informative on what sites not to go on lol..


Thank you so much Crissi, it's beautiful
~hugs and smiles my dear, dear BFF's~

Lorry, I think because almost everyone does it and while it was annoying as all get out most of us understood the why so we sucked it up and dealt. Now I'm seeing more and more pop up with multiple layers of these harmful advertising sites... it's just getting stupid.

What I don't understand is why there aren't sites like ad.fly that don't threaten pc security. I would be far more receptive to a service that doesn't make me feel like I am living on the edge every time I click the link, lol.

Yesterday I was shocked when I went to a site which I will name so that you all avoid it like the plague!
When I went to Enure Sims, my computer was overtaken with so many ads that at one point I thought I had a virus. For awhile I couldn't do a thing, it was like my pc was disabled. The only way I could exit everything, was by closing the site in my task bar and restarting my computer.

I promised myself I would never name a site, but this was unbelievable, and scared the living daylights out of me.......swear

Lorry, the same thing happened to me!!! I was quite upset, and though they had something I wanted, I decided it is definitely not worth all that trouble.
I wonder though if they realize the hassles they put us through, it is almost like tempting us with the content and then sticking their tongues out to say "You can't have it....wewe!"
Hate that.

swear That website... wow! omgtext 

The amount of junk you get. Please tell me why you would go through the trouble of creating all those meshes/recolors/etc, and then post them on a site like that which is next to impossible to access? If you want them for personal use don't post them online. Simple.  hmmm

That's the thing Alouette, they are making money from other creators hard work, by converting them to Sims 4 (in my case)
You will find that sites like MXIMS, whose meshes are amazing, there are no ads, you just go directly to the download.
My daughter argued with me, that these people have the ads to help pay for their website, and I get that, but it's the amount of advertising that is the issue

Thank you Suzanne for offering to help me though, next time I WILL ask you first.

I will never go there again, that's for sure.

Ah Suzanne, may be it is a good thing that you are left with a small storm. It will keep you busy and may be keep you from over thinking that they have left!
But then I know you are a very strong and caring mother and your sons are all three geared for life!!
When you have everything sorted again, have a nice cuppa with us all here!

I'm glad you get to have lunch with your son, Lorry <3

Yes, I will miss them - they do need to have their own space and lives, though :D

lol...

...Ben and I have been picking up here and there all day.

...we've left the bigger messes for tomorrow and Monday :D

...We did go into the jacuzzi tonight after a nice action movie and I enjoyed a nice glass of wine <3

I will miss the lively conversations.

I will NOT miss the messes  rofl301

I agree with everybody. I search the sites to find wonderfull stuff fo my game. That half the fun. Don't tease me with your beutifull creations . And then don't make them available for donload. Also could those who do make them available for download could you please use a download site that works in America or that has not gone off line

socksoroosky I don't like it either when they show something in a picture that no one else can get......I call it, showing off.

When I was playing Sims 2, I tested objects for one of the best creators, she would let me keep everything she thought was not good enough, I was so lucky.  Not once did I ever show any of these objects, because I knew everyone would want them, and I would never share them without this awesome creator's  approval.

In Sims 3, I was given a sculpture by someone I had assisted with one of her files she had lost.  I loved it so much, but I never put it in any of my pictures, because again, I knew everyone would want it!  

I think there's so many broken or dead links because Simmers move on.....I don't think it matters what country it's in.

Again, my opinion is if a creator has gone (at least two years) and their links are still up and attempts have been made at contact, I don't see an issue with converting and giving credit.

(including a line or so about being willing to remove if the creator ever requests that to be done).

Some creators turn over their work to other creators or archive sites when they leave. Others just leave.

I think it a shame that their work becomes lost.

So, if the intent is to share, not profit, AND to properly credit, I don't think it is wrong.

I wholeheartedly agree with your statements, Suzanne. 

The ones who bother me most are primarily the people who dangle it in front of your face and go "nah nah na na nah you can't have it" with their tongue sticking out. Obviously they know what they are doing because they are taking the time to decorate or stage in game, take photos and edit them (because let's face it, most of them are), and post it to their website with no intention of responding to requests regarding the cc.

You mean like the curiosity poster? ROFL

In truth I've stopped asking creators because I never ever get a response back about items they dangle in front of me. I just move on. Although, to be fair sometimes it isn't dangling so much as testing the market. A few items I've seen items show up later at as a future download.

i would also avoid Elfdor for the very same reason. I tried two different downloads to be sure because their items are pretty darn spiffy but the ad hosting they chose is insane aggressive. I see that name now and move on with longing.

I did try and get some male shoes the other day...

...completely circular (not adfly, something else).

...I literally couldn't download anything.

...I tried several different links for downloads to see if they were all the same.

...my 7th try, I got a notice that their downloading was temporarily suspended...

Good riddance. You all know me, I'll put up with a lot to get cc. This was beyond terrible :(
