      Please help us for July   06/30/2017

      This month we're hoping for a little bit of a boost this month or next, in addition to covering the regular bills, we could benefit from some hardware upgrades. STEX Collector's Set gifts can now be sent to you via digital download as well as regular mail if you wish! Every donation dollar goes toward keeping Simtropolis online and humming along. Your contribution counts! Hardware Upgrades As our website community software improves with more and more features, and as we bolt on additional features such as chat, the increased load to handle all these new toys is taking the server a bit to task. You may have noticed that we'd been forced to temporarily disable the chat as we worked out allocating resources for more optimal performance. Following this, we've applied a number of 'soft' changes such as caching options and experimented with server configurations (nginx as proxy, for example), so the hardware aspect is also an area we'd like to focus on. The last time we upgraded hardware was back in 2012, prior to the release of SC13. Your contribution means a lot! Your donation will go toward helping us to 1.) migrate to a newer server or 2.) at least get some ram/cpu/storage updates and any other infrastructure hardware or services. Donate and Get a Gift or Donate Any Amount Thanks so much! - Dirktator & The Admins

That's better.  9.gif

Everyone, meet Rhoskel.  1.gif

Okay, I'm no photographer in even the slightest sense of the word.  Doing my best here.  The flash makes his eyes look funny sometimes, but really, he's actually quite normal.  1.gif

"It's not a doll!! It's an action figure!!" Doesn't seem like it'd work you. Although I HIGHLY doubt you'd care. 3.gif

FINE! It's MSN!

Awright, Ian.  How many dolls do you have in your collection?  From the photos we can see a few.

It is not that many years ago that anatomically correct dolls were very hard to get.  I hope you get him housebroken (potty trained?) soon.

@A Nonny Moose:  At the risk of making Chp pee himself laughing, I will say that the others are, in all seriousness, action figures.  3.gif  Well, except Fayt.  He's a statue, since he has zero moving parts.

Another picture!  9.gif

Neat.  As a new Canadian, you should probably get him some hockey gear.  Any particular team?

Ha!  3.gif  

I don't think so.  First of all, I really can't stand major league hockey at all.  

But...  I do enjoy going to a minor league hockey game once in awhile.  Hockey is one of those sports I can only enjoy seeing in person with a good, close view, like you can get at a minor league game.  (Most sports, honestly, are like that for me.)  So, yeah...  I know next to nothing about major league hockey.  If someone put a gun to my head and told me to pick a hockey jersey for him, I'd go with the Toronto Marlies.  1.gif

I'm sitting here reading this thread with a Detroit Red Wings (NHL) jersey on. It's alright that you don't know anything about hockey though. I do think that your doll has much better fashion sense than I do. I think I had a student who looked just like him last time I was in Japan.

Oh, I don't have a problem with action figures. I just laugh when people call dolls action figures. 3.gif

(What do you mean, I used to play with dolls? G.I. Joes are action figures!!!)

(The hypocracy is outstanding...)

Anyways, get him a Blackhawks jersey! Or if you want minor league, get him a Wolves jersey! Cuz  y'know, Chicago's awesome. 3.gif

One more outfit to go!  (And by that, I mean "one more outfit after this one."  1.gif)

Yes, badassery takes a lot of work...  It took forever to get him into this outfit, but yeah...  he's workin' the look!  9.gif

When I lived in T.O. the Duke's (Marlies) played at Maple Leaf Gardens.  I used to go with a couple of friends to nearly every home game.  Junior hockey is where its at.  I've never been physically to an NHL game, nor do I want to attend one, ever.  Like you, I sort of abhor professional sports.

In my salad days, we used to go to the wrestling matches at MLG as well.  It was a cheap evening's entertainment, and not as stupid as it is now.  Those were the days of Whipper Billy Watson, Killer Kowalski, and Sweet Daddy Siki.  Fake, of course, and everyone knew it, but those guys could clean up the ring with the current crop.  And for real wrestling, Lou Thez would have mopped up all these guys.

Of course, you could always get him a team Canada sweater.  And a more grown up hair-do.

You know, you bring up an interesting point. What constitutes a "doll" versus an "action figure" isn't very well defined.

It's tempting to say that boys' toys are action figures and girls' toys are dolls, but many such things these days aren't marketed at one gender over the other.

Probably the best defintion I can come up with is that it's a "doll" if it has fabric clothes (especially if they can be changed), and an "action figure" if the clothes are simply hard cast as part of the plastic body.

So, Rhoskel is definitely a doll, but, for instance, Sora standing on top of the speaker there (that is Sora, right?) is an action figure.

And I don't think I've ever heard anyone seriously refer to a GI Joe as a "doll". That'd be the knd of thing the boys in the schoolyard would punch you in the face for.

I had a doll when I was a pre-schooler. Her name was Mandy and was given to me by the next door neighbours mother, because my next door neighbour who was a girl, and also my best friend at the time, never played with it.

Go figure that one.

I, on the other hand had many happy hours playing with Mandy, along with various teddies, etc. "Mothers and Fathers"... "Doctors and Nurses"...

Boys can't play with dolls?   Pfft.   Horse Hockey...   (OK so lets not start talking about sport again...  ewwww...  this is supposed to be a serious discussion on dolls and boys who play with them for goodness sake).  19.gif

Yes a little later I did have two Action Man (dolls / action figures whatever ya want to call them) and had many happy hours playing with them and inventing quite complex stories in my own head as to what they were doing... utilising a number of different outfits, which were all meticulously kept in their own sets in plastic bags.

...and yes for those familar with Myers Briggs... my middle two letters are NF... and one of the traits of NF children is 'hours of quiet imaginative play'.

As for Rhoskel... yeah he is a pretty cool looking guy. Can't wait to see his last outfit... oh and don't forget to show us his jammies.

When I was a little kid, someone gave me a book of paper dolls.  You know, the figures are punchouts from the convers, and the clothes are cut outs, with tabs to hold them on.  The gift was inadvertent, but I played with it anyway. 

In the war, toys were few and far between.  Of course I had a set of alphabet blocks that were hand me downs.  I wish I still had them because they would be worth a fortune.  I had the original box.

After the war, I had the usual set of boy toys: A big meccano set, cars, etc.

Anyone remember the song "Paper Doll"?

"I'm gonna buy a paper doll

"That I can call my own

"A doll that other fellas cannot steal ..."

I never had any of my own dolls, but I did willingly play dolls with my younger sister.

Although, it wasn't without rockyness. I did get it in my head once that one of her doll's hair was too long, and convinced her to let me cut it by telling her it would grow back. And I did destroy the nose of her stuffed dog, and when she asked what I was doing I told her it needed an operation. :evil: (an older brother being mean to his younger siblings... how strange!)

My curiosity made me click the link, and now, I'm so,...so,...very,...very,...confused.

Well... we have established that this is a thread about dolls. Not only that it is a thread about boys who play with dolls.

Yes it is true... some boys play with dolls.

So is that what is confusing you? 1.gif
