Facts About The Sims Resource


As I am in charge of TSR's Social Media (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc), I am often asked questions about the site.  I thought I'd compile some of those answers (in no particular order) here.  If there's something you'd like to know, however, feel free to ask in the comments!

14. We currently have 160k followers on our Facebook page, and over 9k on our Twitter.

15. Having trouble with the site? Advertisements are the worst offenders, so we've added a Report Ads button on the bottom of every page. For other issues, please send an email to our support team - support@thesimsresource.com

I hope you found this information enlightening!
