Site news 28 August
Some site news. Because of a lack of a good toplist, I decided to remove the 'vote for snooty' part. If I find a good one though, it will return.

It just came to my attention that my affiliate, SimCops, decided to close their site. Since I like to replace it, those with a Sims 2 site can mail me to become an affiliate with me. 2 Things to remember; Since SnootySims is mainly a news site, I prefer to have an affiliate who also concentrates on this. Further more, since this site gets lots of visitors (currently close to 6000 uniques a day), I also prefer that you have sufficient bandwidth. I don't know how many people use the affiliate links, but I don't really like to be responsible for a site to go over their limit
