Survey and poll 12 June
A couple days ago, Maxis had a survey on their site where they asked several questions about a next expansionpack. This survey however was working only for a very short time; From comments from the official Sims BBS, it was at least less then 4 hours possible to vote. And since the (not-working) link was still on the site, this made many people quite annoyed.
Anyway, the most important question from the survey was what expansion idea you would like most. Read here what the options were: Survey options

For the new poll, what is your favorite new expansion idea? Click here to vote: New poll.
Last poll question was which part of Nightlife you like most. Cars and neighbouring houses were the favorite options. 2382 people voted and here are the results:

What do you like most in Nightlife?
- New build options: 5%
- Ownable cars: 35%
- The dating game: 17%
- The vampires: 11%
- Neighbouring houses: 25%
- Rugs: 1%
