Default MTS Picks - Sims 3 style!
As many of you Sims 2 creators, we've had a "Picks" system in place here for quite some time. Picks are essentially uploads that are either extremely well done and selected by the staff, but not featured, or alternatively popular items picked via an algorithm.

I'm pleased to announce that the picks system is now live for Sims 3 items as well as Sims 2 ones, and I would like to congratulate any creators who have gotten a picked upload, and I wish everybody the best of luck for getting one in the future!

Story books are full of fairy tales, of Kings and Queens, and the bluest skies.
9 users say thanks for this. (Who?)

Cool! Thank you. Does this mean that the uploads picked today weren't picked by the staff but by the "algorithm"?

Is this going to work retroactively or just from this point forward?

I noticed that when you "click to view more" on the picked uploads, and then switch to sims 2, it shows all downloads whether or not they are picked, featured, or regular. Other than that, thanks so much for including sims 3 as picks! :D

That's what I'm wondering. I don't want everything prior to today to be left out!

Also, I've been curious... what does the algorithm scan for? A certain number of thanks?

Apparently from viewing old threads on picked uploads. The algorithm is a secret. But I think it's safe to say it goes by: favorites, downloads, views, thanks, and comments.

Anything that meets the criteria regardless of how old it is will get picked via the algorithm, and anything that meets that criteria from this point on will also get picked too.

cool! Loving the new features you've been adding lately. MTS is almost unrecognisable since I joined.

Can't wait for some more!

Yes, I'm wondering if the new picks system for The Sims 3 will work on the newer sections added in the past few months, like CAS screens, and Walls and Floors.
