Thank you - Stay home, play together

Community Manager

Hey there, EA Friends,

 

In a time where we need to stay physically apart, games can be a source of inspiration and joy.  They bring all of us together, from professional athletes streaming FIFA 20 to fans of the Sims inspiring each other with ideas for new worlds and themes. This week alone, we’ve seen community members helping each other on our forums and giving out XP more than ever. 

 

 

To each and everyone one of you, from all of us at Answers HQ and the EA forums:

 

Thank you.

  • For staying inside and helping keep everyone safe.
  • For playing together and staying positive.
  • For being patient and understanding as we adjust our support systems.
  • For collaborating with and celebrating each other.

 

We invite you to join us in sharing your stories of how you’re staying connected with gaming. Use #stayandplay on your posts so we can see and share all the amazing things our community is doing around the world.

@EA_Arcadia OK, I got a new computer in April. I am finally able to play Sims again after years away. How do we find other players to communicate with? The last I was able to talk in anyway with others was way back in Sims3 yahoo email groups. Umm the world has changed. I am returning after a long time away dealing with rl.

Hi @EA_Arcadia - thx for sharing such a positive sentiment! I totally agree! 

 

And I actually do have an example I’d like to share, but have a quick question regarding the #StayAndPlay tagging request for posts. This would be specific to Twitter posts (as opposed to AHQ forum posts), correct? If so, it might be helpful to include a reference to the Twitter handle(s) where you guys are monitoring for feedback. 

 

Cheers!

No prob, @anne5440 - I was hoping for clarification from EA regarding the part of the original post quoted above.

@anne5440 

 

That is an excellent goal, my friend. (It’s hard to resist the urge to jump on my anti-FB soapbox and tell you all the reasons why they don’t deserve you as a user. Suffice it to say, you’re def better off playing Sims!)

 

The email notifications really don’t give you a ton of information. FYI, you can modify how and under what circumstances you receive forum notifications. You can access by selecting ‘settings’ from the drop down menu @ top right. You’ll get a menu that looks like the attached image, and near the bottom, you can see the option for ‘notification settings’.

 

Have fun playing!

😉
