Not to get off topic again, but I just had to give my two cents. By saying that MTS doesn't have good uploads you're giving every creator up here a virtual smack in the face! Like Delphy said, the creators here are 100% unpaid yet they put only their best efforts in their creations.
By complaining about the lack of mods, I assume you're talking about TS3? Well considering that the game is only a little over 3 months old and the massive amount of CC already out there, I'd say we're doing just fine. Fortunately TS3 is super easy to tweak so there's no real reason to flood the download section with teensy DIY XML mods.
Lastly, like others have said, if you want something done then do it yourself. There's nothing more aggravating then having someone ask you to make some content personally for them, as if they own the world. Especially when they don't understand the time it takes to create such things. And besides, it's much more rewarding to make your own creations rather than piggybacking off of someone else.
Anyhoos, I and many others donated because we enjoy the site and want to support it. Obviously you're unhappy here, so either leave or be quiet You don't have to donate.

For people like myself, (disabled and on a pension) who enjoy the game, I can download from this site without have to pay yearly subscription fees, or make a donation every time I find an item I want to download, making a small donation to show my support does not make me an idiot. It makes me someone that appreciates all the work put into this site and the hours of added pleasure they bring to the game.
Off topic, I know, but Well Said!
Back on topic- my income is fairly limited but I will be donating something very soon. It will be the very first time I've donated to any site and it will be well worth it. (Get that 456654? See that little icon under my username? It says I'm a creator? I don't get paid to create and I'm willing to donate MONEY on top of the time I spend to create! That's because this site is worth it.)
I can think of a lot of Modders on this site who would take what you are saying 456654, as a insult, if you are not going to "donate" or show some kind of "respect" for this site and Staff and creators here, I will personally build you a home and show you where the front door is. EXIT>> your 15 min. of fame is over.

romagi It can take 12 hours for the donation icon thingiebobber to show up, so give it a bit. I see a $ and a heart below your name, indicating monthly supporter and donator.
The "icons that shouldn't be there" may be part of some donation bugginess that Delphy is currently fixing. See if there is a thread about it in Site Issues, there might be. Getting a featured icon is one of the friendliest bugs I've ever seen though, gave me a chuckle.
i am extremely broke atm, but if i could donate at a later date once my finances are more secure i have no qualms with paypal and won't mind using it. =>
and if i do donate at a later date can i still get a cute lil heart? XD
MTS is just scamming you out of money! Why should we donate to a website that make hundreds off of ads revenue every day? The ads clutter your screen and they make you irritated because they pop up all the time on the homepage. Maybe if you cut back on ads you could get more donations. What a great idea! You make $828.90 a day on these ads on average! Why should we give you are money? I won't give you anything when you make all that money and don't even have good stuff up on the site! When was the last time we got a good mod uploaded to the site? We haven't had a mod for a week and the last one before that was three weeks!!! Do you get my point?
MTS is a scam
I think Delphy and all mod's and admin's deserve a big applause for making this site, the best (free) Sims2/3 site ever and financing all, that is needed to keep up MTS and spending most of their time with making MTS even better and better. *applauds*
I just tried to donate...don't know if it will go through. I haven't used PayPal in years although I have an account. I entered my credit card info in the credit card column and when I hit enter it said I had a PayPal account. My PayPal account is old and I never use it so I hit continue hoping it would just charge my credit card. It seemed to go through but at the end said that I could check details at PayPal. PayPal doesn't even have a record of the credit card I used. Crossing fingers that the money gets through.
Love seeing the donation numbers rise. MTS helps so many other sites as well, so donating here is like a ripple in a pond.
Sidenote; Ireland, Delphy? I didnt know that. Saw your beautiful country this summer, wish I could move there! Grand, yep,yep.
why cant we get a say in what we think should be made
then we can ask volunteers kindly if they would likke to mod
could you put a poll on the front page?
Excuse me you cheeky little toad. I spend a lot of time working on things for my own site as well as uploading stuff here, including mods, lots, build items, etc. I have filled requests where I could as I'm just nice that way. How dare you demand that people like me who are kind enough to spend our time making things for you for free step up the game. You can't mod, well neither could I a few months ago. Go and learn like the rest of us and stop complaining.
You'll take what you get and be grateful for it or just buzz off and let the people who do appreciate it benefit from it.
NO, people can't say what they want on the site or what they want uploaded, people take what we can manage to make. If you do have a request from a creator, then you could discreetly pm them to ask if they wouldn't mind doing it, as we don't get paid it would be at the creators discretion. I find all of the creators on this site to be very nice and friendly.
If you can't find what you're looking for here, go google it and see if it's on another site
Oh and yes, I donated because I know how much a website costs to run.
