This isn't really a question but I think advice columns are wildly entertaining. Grin

Something along the lines of...

"Dear Mac,

I have been trying to steal my man's wallet heart for several months but he just doesn't seem receptive to my charms. In fact, I have seen him running around town with several single Sims over the months. When I confronted him about his behavior, he said "What do you expect from a Romance Sim, babe?" and shrugged it off! How do I coerce get him into a committed relationship (I'm talking diamond ring, Mac!) and a shared bank account? Help!

Sincerely,
Desperately Broke in Pleasantview"

Followed up with tips on how to successfully navigate Sim relationships. ie. Which sims are most compatible, which social interactions will get the desired result, etc.

Oh I think haven't been quite clear again... this is of course a interior/exterior decorating column - though the other kind of thing could be really fun. I just don't think we got any staffers who could answer this kind of thing

I see! Well a decorating column is just as nice. Maybe some day a staffer will come along to do something like this Grin

Do you want real decorating dilemas or just one that you can answer in the magazine.  Cause Ive come up with a bunch of question, had plenty of time on my hands lately Smiley  Heres one for you.

Lanendragon


Dear LSM

My husband and I are trying to sell our home.  Do you have any hints and tricks for staging the spaces in our home so it will appeal to a broader spectrum of buyers?  Any help is appreciated.

Thank You

I think you miss my meaning Im writing the question from the sims point of view as if the sim is writing the magazine?  Isnt that how you want the questions formed?  Or is staging not what you meant?  If you'd I can submit a more "decorating" like question?  But Im submitting like the sims is asking not me.  Im sorry if im not understanding.

Lanendragon, I think that macthekat is talking about questions like in some decoration magazines from "real life". Like this:
I have a small bathroom (2x2 squares) and I do not have a window. How could I make it look lighter and not boring?
Sorry if I misunderstood, but I'm still learning english and don't have all the words I need  Embarrassed

I was trying to answer the first part of your question Lanendragon. But questions like the one Arlet posted are really good as well. If we get more we will do it in issue 10 as issue 9 is being finished as we speak.

Dear LSM
Our fireplace is the focal point of our living area, but it doesnt stand out in anyway.  Can you give advice on how to make it more interesting?


I have other ones but I want to make pics to go with them when did you want all the questions in by?

Dear LSM,

I'm working on building a dock and having issues. I'd like to build boats on the lot, preferably a beach lot, and have little to no clue how to do this. It just looks so, empty without them. Help!

(Is this alright?)
