The voting is now over, foreclosed houses and pets will be given to members by the old owners will, or pets will be placed in the shelter or the home will go into personal ads.

Jobs are another big thing now, so here is a list of jobs needed:

  • Writers for the Newspaper (no promotion, just write in article...

Moving Time!

Posted by The Writer on December 4, 2011 at 1:00 AM Comments comments (4)

The Theatre page and the Art Gallery have been moved to Story Time Square, on the drop down menu. Because they would be kept in Story Time Square.

I've spent some time thinking about how our little city would look, and I assume we should place a little map of it on the Homepage, anyone want to draw a map of how they see Story Time City? The top pick will be placed on the Homepage! See it as a little contest!

Merry Christamas!

New Zoo Owner Needed

Posted by The Writer on December 3, 2011 at 9:10 PM Comments comments (0)

Our old zoo keeper doesn't get on a lot, so we are going to hire a new one. If you think you'd be a good zoo keeper, who during the busy months on Story Time City (basically the school months, because in Summer the residents vacation) and who is good at writing.  Knowing a lot about animals is key, and being imaginative, for mythical creatures as well to be added to the zoo.

But no selling baby animals, because that's illegal and please make animals think realistically, as in, not ...

The new vote is on the Laws page like always, and this one is about foreclosed homes in Story Time City! Basically, when a member gets deleted, what to do with their homes that they built and described, some of these homes are very nice. What to do? Go and vote and see the options!

Halloween Costume Ideas

Posted by The Writer on October 7, 2011 at 11:45 AM Comments comments (0)

Halloween is around the bend, so close we can already imagine are candy-ladden bags and if anyone thinks they're too old to trick-or-treat their wrong! This is the perfect holiday to let your creativity shine! So start making a costume that will outshine them all! I have faith in all the residents to be able to do this, and besides, Halloween is fun!

No idea? No fear! Just look through your dresser or closet and find all your clothes that are just a little to outrageous to wear: a ballg...

Story Time City has a Court

Posted by The Writer on July 3, 2011 at 12:30 AM Comments comments (0)

Story Time City now has a court for writing theft/art theft and other things, but mostly that. The Court Case submission category is in the Police Station. To have a Court case, all the people need to be able to get on at the same time, or if the person who wronged you REFUSES to show up, the Police will deal with it as they see fit, the person might even lose their account in some case, if the CAN'T SHOW UP it will be rescheduled. It may take weeks for someone to finally get their case into ...

Things to do over the Summer

Posted by The Writer on June 26, 2011 at 8:06 PM Comments comments (0)

This bit was added a little late, and please do comment on this entry if you have any ideas for things to do over the summer.

Passion and I found that if you take your own bathtub (air jet tub or normal) and fill it with water and get as many bubbles as you can in it (and optionally turn on the video camera so you can look back on the time), you will probably have a good time swimming in it (with swimsuits on). Big tubs are usually best, and as long as your parents allow you to turn you...
