    Awesome to get to know you a little more through this interview. As a mod you and your colleagues are doing a great job.
    One of my coop members also has a five year old son and he is on TS too! Indeed a child-friendly and instructive game for those little ones.
    (Hope I don't sound to Googleious)

    I'd like to send a huge thank you to Playrix. I waffled a lot in my initial answers, so fantastic job getting it down to readable answers, whilst still keeping everything I said included The pictures (here and on FB) are amazing! I may even print them out and put them on the photo wall. I'm so impressed

    Thank you everyone that's read it, and double thanks to those that replied. It was fun doing it, and I'm glad y'all enjoyed reading it

    Us Brits, too, believe me. Ne-vay-da felt wrong for months. Now I'm so used to it, Ne-vah-da seems weird... Lol

    Cute picture, is it similar to real life? do you have a tattoo on your wrist? *g*
    The likeness is actually very similar, and yes, the tattoos on this and the FB pic are both genuine (and pretty much accurate).

    Gracias por tu esfuerzo y ayuda
    Great interview Nevada.
    I speak Spanish and it is sometimes difficult for me to understand what is said in the forum. Since the translation is not always too good. I imagine that it must happen to you the other way around, when those of us who write are Spanish speaking, it must be a bit complicated for you to understand each other.
    Thanks for your effort and help


    You are very welcome. We all do our best to communicate across the language barrier, but I am sure there is much that gets lost in translation. Sometimes we just have to use our best guess, then translate our replies which I am sure are met with confusion on the other end... We do what we can.

    De nada. Todos hacemos lo posible por comunicarnos a través de la barrera del idioma, pero estoy seguro de que hay mucho que se pierde en la traducción. A veces solo tenemos que utilizar nuestra mejor conjetura, luego traducir nuestras respuestas, que estoy seguro de que nos encontramos con confusión en el otro extremo ... Hacemos lo que podemos.

    The largest is for my doggo. He was my first Christmas present and was with us for 14 years.
    The other two are for my house bunnies, who were a source of comfort during some rougher times.

    Being able to store community buildings and housing, for sure. I'd like to see day/night/weather changes, but, building storage has functionality, so thats top of the list.

    Air dancer, for sure. I love him so much

    As a rule, I like any of the... Hmm. Realistic isn't the right word...
    Anything that doesn't involve "cartoony".
    Ghost ship, sheep abduction, Nessie... Love them.
    Rock painting sheep, pigs on whales, octopus treasure chests, giant hermit crabs; not for me.

    I'm actually a big fan of the little things, as well. The sunken castle, for example, looks great.
    The sunken castle with a couple water lilies looks amazing!

    The water lilies, hay bales, veggie cart, scarecrow... Those little one-square decos really pull everything together.

    What strategy(s) do you use when designing your town?

    If there was one aspect of the game you would do away with if you could what would it be and why?
    The same things you all see, really: Banned town, lost zoo, need more space, why's my regatta score messed up...

    I try to keep it "realistic". I think about things like "the beach should give way to a park, which people can walk through to get to the town centre".
    At the stage I'm currently at, though, a lot of it is still "shove it where it fits until there's more space".
    Housing, in particular, is a nightmare at the moment.

    I don't know what I'd get rid of... There's no one part of the game I don't like... Maybe the ships/islands? But only because I still only have the first two islands open and I only actually send ships put a couple times a month on average. It's not that I don't like it; I just wildly under-use it.

    A computer. A computer would make life so much easier. Trying to search stuff, or highlight stuff, on a phone is a pain.

    Anything by Stephen King, especially the Dark Tower series, or, Harry Potter.
    My mum's cheese and tomato pasta bake.
    Orange squash (cordial... Not that the Americans will know what that is because they don't DO squash... :/) or, in America, cream soda.
    Movies... Harry Potter, Shawshank, (there's a theme.. Lol), Watership Down, Star Wars, anything natural disaster like Day After Tomorrow or Armageddon... Probably a whole load I can't think of right now.
    TV... Suits, Nashville, Chicago Fire, House, Bones, Naked and Afraid... Pretty much all finished now, but, I hardly ever watch TV, so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Frustrated... Well. That's a whole different answer... *whistles*

    My least Fav is probably that the market doesn't show barn inventory. I waste a great deal of time going back and forth trying to figure out what's worth cramming into my overstuffed barn.

    I'm joking

    Remember if you can't be online 24/7 to move every post and merge every thread the second they're posted in the wrong places; that's okay.
    Real life always comes first. Everyone that uses the forum does so as part of their "free time", and as mod that shouldn't be any different.

    I'm permanently in the UK and it feels like as a moderator you manage to be available all the time

    I guess my question should be do you actually sleep?
    The time change is not really a problem. I have very little "leading" to do in my co-op. We're token racers, not position racers, so speed of task completion doesn't matter, and we've all been on the same team for months, so we all know how to play together nicely, lol I just warn them I won't be around for 24 hours for travel, and off I go.
    The forum is even easier now with Dread and Bess on the team. Again, I warn them I'll be away for travel, and know y'all are in safe hands
    Also, for all but the last trip, I've had Internet on the plane anyway, so... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ It's like I'm not even gone

    I sleep a lot... Lol! It just seems like I'm here a lot because I'm rarely here for very long; maybe 10 mins in the morning then 2 minute visits, but, I do have the ability to pop in and out multiple times a day, even an hour if there's something exciting or worrying happening that I feel the need to keep an eye on.

    So there you have it. I'm not here long, but I'm always watching...

    Nevada, great interview my dear! Love how you use TS with the kids, it is a great learning tool, and I am glad TS gives us some of the cartoon decor as I would think it would be very appealing to the little ones . Thanks again for sharing...

    I know you don't mind tagging this on, as I don't roam too much on the Forum lately. Congrats to dread and Bess, notice you guys are officially Mods now! Know your service is much appreciated, you both have helped so many folks over the years, Cheers, Kim
