So continues the recent trend in the fleet. It is apparently that time of year, when sims start getting a new look. The USS Phoenix is no different, getting a new look that is truly wonderful. What kind of look is that?
If you check out the new Phoenix website, you”ll get a clue. This site, one of many wonderful sites made by FSF Tommy, has given the USS Phoenix simulation a new look.
The USS Phoenix sim is a Play By eMail (PBeM) sim. It is currently run by FSF Scythe and FSF Spectre. If you are interested in learning more about the sim, contact either of their hosts, check the sim”s information, or simply visit their new site!
For the first week of May, from Monday the 2nd to Sunday the 8th, it will be Simmer Appreciation Week. What does that mean? It means that this week is devoted to… thats right… you! The simmer!
During this week, all hosts will be showing their gratitude to their simmers on the message boards, email strings, and their chat rooms. Look for an appreciation thread starting on your local Sim Lounge on the message board!
Does this mean that just the hosts will be showing appreciation? Not at all! Use this opportunity to thank your fellow simmers for helping to make the sim fun! Show your own gratitude by doing something nice for your fellow simmers. Or even just give them something to smile at. Just remember: This is your week! As players, this is your chance to be kind to one another. Make it a good week, have fun, and remember to show appreciation to each other!
