January Newsletter

General Announcements

Welcome to the first Newsletter for Boolprop! We will be coming out with this on the fifth of each month, for the purpose of highlighting what has gone on throughout the month. Rosanna will have a recap of the events that have taken place, what is taking place currently, and what events are coming up! Stories, Legacies, and Challenges will have some exciting news each month by Chase. Mia will give an account of our scoreboard on the games and I will be listing all the monthly birthdays and holidays!

And look for the polls each month! They will be fun!


You may have noticed that November and December saw a lot of changes with the staff team, and there were lots of activities for Boolprop's birthday, Thanksgiving, and the December holidays. January is going to see more activities taking place or beginning, such as the Golden Plumbobs and remember that there are several ongoing events to participate in for medals.

Medals, you say? Oh, yes, we have added some more chances to earn medals. :idea: If you, like me, have never completed a challenge, we now have a medal for your very first completed challenge! So go on! Give it a try! We may even have medals for other activities. :hmm:

There have been requests to provide a donation option along with opening a Boolprop store. We now offer a way to make a donation through PayPal – the Donate link is in the top right menu. We are also working on setting up a Boolprop store on CafePress. You can find many items available there now, using the link in the top menu bar. There is a medal available for supporting Boolprop. If you make a donation or purchase from the store, please PM Teresa with the information. Once the donation or order has been confirmed, you will get a medal.

And as always, please keep promoting Boolprop and thanks for being a wonderful community.

Events

Hey all, thanks for reading! Here's just a quick recap of what events have happened, are happening, and will happen! #happenin

Just Ended:

  • Our Holiday 2015 events have just about come to a close! Thanks to everyone who made snowmen, snowflakes, and shared their wishlists, screenshots, and resolutions!
  • Additionally, our Secret Holiday Gift Swap event has also ended. Click here to check out the cool gifts everyone got!
  • 12 Smiley Days of Christmas has also ended. Check out the 12 new smilies here!
  • BoolProp Chef is about to finish its 23rd round (Holiday food theme) and Let's Build It's Winter Wonderland round is about to end too. Check back soon to vote!

Current/Upcoming

  • BoolProp Chef will have its next round up shortly as well Let's Build It. As a special thanks for reading this, here's a hint as to the next theme for Let's Build It: it involves nooboos!
  • Wave Your Flag is still going on, if you want to get a snazzy flag medal!
  • Golden Plumbobs is coming back! This is a great event where you can nominate your favorite TS2, TS3, and TS4 stories to be recognized and honored! Additionally there will be other categories for things such as friendliness and graphics. :plumbob: (pretend that's gold please)
  • And one last thing: get ready for something that will require some teamwork...!

Games Scoreboard
The Fun Stuff section is a great place to kick back and relax, and the Games section even more so.

The fierce battle between uppers and downers goes way back in time, all the way back to when dinosaurs roamed the earth... okay, maybe not. Version 3 has this past month dipped down into the 380s, but the uppers got a speedy comeback the very last week and are currently at 420!
The hunt for 10,000 posts may seem pointless at first, but actually serves as a general chat thread about this and that. Version 3 has as of this month gone from 2163 to 2389! Keep up the good work, soldiers.
If you see anything odd around the forums or sudden mentions of geese, it may be a cause of the Duck Duck Goose thread. This month there has been a total of 14 dares! Let the shenanigans continue!

If there is any thread that you would like to see kept track of here, please feel free to send a PM my way.
