The Library's most basic function is to serve as a central listing for stories, of all kinds and formats, written around The Sims gaming platforms.
Beyond that it is a tool. A tool for writers and readers to share, get and give feedback and connect. Writers finding readers, readers finding things to read. All posts are screened. Please be patient as we take things out of queue. Thank you!
If however it has been several days and your post is not appearing, feel free to DIAL A MOD it is possible we missed it!

Request/Review: If you are recommending another’s work feel free to leave a review. If it is your own this is where you would request reviews and state what level of constructive criticism you are comforable with. If you want critique, ask for it. If you'd prefer people just leave positive reviews in simstorylibrary that is fine, simply mention here that you just want reviews and recommendations, not critique.

If there is a tag you feel should be available and isn’t, feel free to message a community maintainer to have it created.

If you see a review you feel is a flame or unfair in anyway, let the mods know and we can review it and decide whether or not it should be removed.
