Hello, hello, helloooooo Boolpropians!
Boy do I have a fantastic newsletter for you today - it's our one year newsletter anniversary! Weeeee! That's right you've been listening to your friendly neighborhood Livvielove rant at you about the stories and happenings going on around here for a full year and still survived! This newsletter will be posted a bit earlier than February (maybe by a few hours) because it fell on an unlucky Thursday night when I have early morning classes on Friday so... Pardon that! But still, most of you will read this in February, so happy love month!

As a second note, thank you for voting in the last newsletter. By majority rule the winners of Story of the Month will now find out on the 1st of the month when I post the newsletter to keep it a surprise!

Important reminder that February is our Golden Plumbob VOTING! Get out there and cast your vote so we can see 2019's lucky Golden Plumbob winners!

We've got a lot of awesome events going on right now, including the Valentine's events! You can find them HERE for your holiday enjoyment. Go check it out, earn some medals, and share some love! We've got a LOT of new stories this month, so that would be an excellent place to start!

This month we're doing a special focus on the Bachelor/Bachelorette Challenge! Itsjulie issued a challenge to everyone for the month of February only! Complete a Bachelor/Bachelorette challenge and win both a PULPER STAR Image for your star card AND a winner's choice medal! This is only for February, hence why I'm giving it a little spotlight! This challenge is well known for being very flexible and allowing for a great deal of fun and calamity! 1 Bachelor/Bachelorette, 7 (or more) potential matches all in one house... what could possibly go wrong? Set up challenges for them, or just see who has the highest relationship at the end of the sim-week and boot out the lesser! There's a million ways to play, so which will you pick? For incentive, all those who are interested can start eyeballing the winner's choice medals over here!

Congratulations to our new winners!

Let's give a shout out to all of our amazing writers here on Boolprop! I now have an OFFICIAL challenge to initiate - I want you to give at least ONE Kudos to another author on Boolprop this month. Doing so and leaving your name (with a note on whether you'd like to be left anonymous or not) will grant you a PULPER STAR! That's your challenge let's see how many of you read this closely enough to find out; let's get started: ready, set, go! It takes 60 seconds to leave a nice (anonymous if you'd like) comment on a story that has taken many, many hours to make. Share some love today and let that author know you appreciate the time they spent!
Limit 1 star per person.

New Member Stories this Month: Give 'em a warm, Boolprop welcome!

New Stories this Month: Stop by and support our awesome members' new stories!
Anniversaries: Congratulations on a(nother) year with your story!
Some Kudos: You've been noticed!
  • Prosper Boom, by simfulicious has come back onto Boolprop to continue the adventures of child-rearing! So glad to see you back!
  • Rozenerami brought back The Televised Alphabetacy updates recently, and I just wanted to say I'm so happy to see it return! The humor is great and I look forward to seeing letters C-Z!
  • I wanted to tell DSLady that she has great timing with her Runaway Gordon story. What a perfect time to come back to her challenge, swoop in and win Story of the Month, too? Well earned, no less!
  • Two thumbs WAY, WAY up for Designergirl81 and The Constar's - An Alien Legacy which has come back after a hiatus to bring us more awesome Alien adventures! I never knew Aliens could be so pretty! Guess I should try them out sometime...
  • We have a kudos left by singinghymns for Teresa's Proud of Darkness for: "finding her inner darkness!"
  • There's a kudos here for simsterlyrock as well from singinghymns in regards to the Double Legacy, for "having a great story TWICE!"
  • We have one more kudos for the lovely Blamsart on her legacy story Light the way to heaven, for "being the most inspired, incredibly well written and moving story I've ever read. Your work is phenomenal!"
Completed Stories: Congratulations on finishing!

Have a great February, everyone! I hope your Valentine's month is super sweet and full of love!

Congrats to the Stories of the month, they are both amazing and well-deserved.
And this has to be a special post for #1000 for me, so I figured where better than the newsletter for all our amazing stories :)

Great newsletter :thup:

There are so many stories that I haven't had the time to even look at.
I picked one at random to read this morning and it so happened to be one long post of the whole story which was great :haha:

Kudos challenge has been accepted and completed :sly:
