After checking the stats on my blog, I have decided to remove all downloads. People in The Sims community are not like they used to be. Now, they're very unappreciative and can't take 30 seconds out of their day to say a simple thank you for a gift that was offered freely to them.
Creating brings enjoyment to me, I like to see what something looked like before and what it looks like after I put my touch on it, I wanted to share with others because I thought maybe someone else would want these items in their game.
In the two months I've be sharing my creations, over 8,000 people have downloaded my stuff, and only one person has said thanks, ONE! That's pretty pathetic, don't you think?
I don't do it for the popularity, I could give a shit less about that. I'm not the greatest, I know this, but I still offered my things for free. I still took my own free time to create something, and paid RL money each month to a file share site so that people could download my things for free without ad sites like Ad-Fly simply to share with people. So, in essence, I was PAYING to have you grab my creations and only one person said thanks.
From now on, I'll simply make things for my own game or share with the few people who will appreciate the time, effort, and money I put into it.
So, remember this, the next time you're downloading from another creator, a simple 30 second post to say thank you goes a long way.

My creations will now be available at Cherry Blossom Sims under the Resident Artist section.
feel free to join us! It's a forum like those that were found in the
early Sims days. You do need to have 10 posts before you can download
but it's so easy to acquire those posts because there's so much other
stuff to do. There's decorating contests & challenges, lots of
chatter, it's a very active and friendly community. There's also a
section for members to upload their pictures to the portfolio section so
others can ooooh and ahhhh over your decorating or design skills.
If you're interested in checking it out, here's the link Cherry Blossom Sims
