      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

    Interview with Micah


    When did you join Simtropolis?

    Well, I joined ST about 2 years after I joined Simcity.com. The official date of when I joined says August 1, 2005.

    Why did you join Simtropolis?

    The responce is most commonly the STEX; however, it's that and also the fact that I wanted to join a better community than Simcity.com.

    Did you ever expect to win the EOTM?

    Never. I didn't feel that I did enough to deserve it.

    Why did you think you were nominated for the EOTM?

    I seriously don't know. Perhaps it was my eyes that captivated them (The ones who gave me my nomination).

    Will winning the EOTM inspire you to do more for the community?

    Of course. I have many plans this summer and ,in fact, I'm hoping on working in more areas soon.

    What do you do outside of Sim City 4 and Simtropolis in your free time?

    Research nanotechnology and space science. Once I'm done doing that, I usually get out my tuba and start playing it for all the concerts I have. I even sometimes golf with my dad when we have the time to do so.

    What are your favorite Simtropolis moments?

    My favorite moment was when I joined the site. My second favorite moment would have to be when I met some great friends here (and they know who they are). The third would have to be when I became a moderator. And the final best moment would have to be the incident with the hillbilly and the "3 space" code.

    Do you have a job?

    No, but I certainly hope to get one soon. (Probably this summer).

    If you were stuck on a deserted island with one Simtropolis member, who would it be?

    Blondetwiggy. Though, chances are, she would be a drain on resources. (She knows I'm messing with her).

    What forums do you moderate?

    Current Events, AU&P forum, and I hope that I can moderate more in the future to exceed what I'm doing now.

    What is your favorite aspect of being a moderator on Simtropolis?

    It has to be the family experience. I truly feel that, even though I've made some mistakes and some rather embarrassing comments, I've been added and have met a wonderful family. I couldn't have asked for a better uncle, a better mom, better siblings, and a better hillbilly than the ones I have now.
