Got some ideas?
Here's a place where you can recommend any improvements to Simtropolis.
It's about time we had one of these. Even though the site continues to develop, we'd love to hear your thoughts on how it can be further refined and made better for everyone. Whether it be a simple layout/design tweak, or a completely brand new feature, post away in this thread!
While we can't promise everything will be possible or implemented, each idea will be read and considered. I'm sure you'll appreciate there are limitations, both technically and financially.
To report any issues with an existing site feature, or something not working as intended, please instead use the Bugs Thread.
For clarity, please keep one idea per post. Double posts are acceptable if you've more than one idea at once.
Note: To prevent successive replies from auto-merging, you may need to wait 5 minutes.
Give a subheading, describing briefly what the idea is.
Explain the idea -- it helps to give as much detail as possible. Pictures or diagrams are acceptable, but not required.
Why would this be of benefit to the community?
If you value anyone's idea, please Like it to show your support. This helps to give a rough indication of how well an idea is received.
If commenting on an idea, please quote/copy the subheading so it's clear what is being discussed.
Once processed, ideas will be tagged with one of the following:
NOT PLANNED - The idea is appreciated, but at this stage, is not feasible to implement.
INTERNAL REVIEW - We like the idea, and will pursue whether it's currently feasible to implement.
PLANNED - We have decided to implement the idea, and are finding the best ways to go about it.
IMPLEMENTED - The idea has been added as a new site feature!
This will change depending on ongoing progress with implementation.

Index of Display Name Changes
Display name changes can sometimes create confusion, especially when the new name is completely unrelated to the old one.
Since there have been a number of recent changes, I think it might be useful to have a resource where these can be documented.
For general information about name changes, please see the FAQ in the following post.
If you're aware of a change that isn't listed, or have recently changed your own, please post below and I'll add you to the table.
The table below lists the known changes, along with the dates and original names. For those where the date is uncertain, a reasonable estimate has been made (based on their posts referring to the name -- e.g. quotes). For users who've changed their name more than once, the "Other Changes" column provides these details. The links open a document on Google Drive, where this info is presented.

Username = Multiple changes.
Username = Pre Simtropolis 7.0 change.
Reminder: Due to the site upgrade, remember that display names are now the same as usernames!
As Dirk explained here, this replaces the previous system, where your registration username was always used to login. If you've changed your display name, you should always login using the current one. This may explain if you're experiencing difficulty logging in.

Here it is, the 20,000th file uploaded to the STEX. I would have done something far more amazing if I knew, but this humble little landmark of the Maxis Quantum Dish is all I had. It has a nice menu icon, and it functions as a landmark, and that's about all, but I suppose its a symbol, a symbol of great things to come, to be, for the awesome ability of communication, and our awesome human imagination, so let it be a symbol, of hope, of betterment of the world and of humanity.
