Thanks, I'm going to start writing the article over the weekend

I have another question because I'm writing an article on crime about murder, but I'm not feeling it. So, I'm wondering if recruiting for a terror group would be considered a crime? Or just terror in general?

@TMBrandon, terror, as in terrorism, would definitely count as crime (if that's what you meant).

Thanks for catching my "duh" moment, Cat

Yes that's exactly what I meant. Just being rather cautious about mentioning it, because I don't want to suddenly be accused of creating a terroristic group and have my every move monitored.

Thanks for the quick reply!

@CatherineTCJD @justJones

Thanks for you're friendly help. I should've probably figured out the spoiler since I use bold and italics so much with the [B] and the [I] so much.

Could I use two of the who/where prompts? Like if I wanted to involve my Sim who was a Space Pirate, could I use both "Pirates" and "In space"? Or would that just be making it harder for myself later on?

@thatkitten, I can't see any words, just an image. Please can you edit your post and add in the text

Want a specific style of house or community building? Why not take a look at my profile and see what I build and then come ask me to make it!

@esmeiolanthe, you can. But you still have to pic one to state as your chosen prompt. Let's say you choose "outer space" for a story about a space pirate. You can still later use pirate (if it is in the prompts) since it wasn't your "official choice".

if you hit reply to my post you will see the quotes come up around my text. So spoiler tags would be

Sorry, Unfortunately I've not had the time to make an article and I'm going to be busy this week end so I won't have the time to take part in this competition but hopefully I'll be able to take part in future Competitions, homework has started piling in at school

That's sad coolsim, but quite rightly your schoolwork must come first

I have a question about the bonus. I used TS3 to make the picture for the actual article; am I allowed to use TS2 for the bonus picture?
