Site update September 7
Several site updates:

Snooty Sims now has a Chatroom. You can find it on the right. I installed it to (hopefully) lowering the amount of chat in the guestbook. It's a nice chatroom that has different themes to choose from.

Also, someone sent me a nice addition to the 'info center'. It's a pdf file about the chance cards. It's not complete yet, but for most careers it's finished. Thanks Danial!
Open up this pdf file here: Chance cards
