Springfield Showoff: Northward Bound

As we sit here frakkin files, pulling pics, and typing a million words a minute to get our readers the latest updates and information…we sometimes find ourselves forgetting to stop and enjoy our own games. More so our neighboreenos. So we try to make it a point to hop in n out of the towns now and then to see what cool things YOU are up to. So we have decided we want to continue to focus more attention (as if we don’t already 😛 ) on YOU…our readers. From time to time we will be peaking into your towns, checking our Flickr, and also the posts in the comments below to see what cool ideas and designs YOU have come up with to make your towns unique and…well…YOU.

So here is YOUR chance to show off all your hard work, time, donuts & in-game cash spent. Send us your work, no matter how big or small, and brag about it to the world. We want you to! Then keep your eyes posted to Addicts to see if YOU end up on our “SPRINGFIELD SHOWOFF”.

So let’s take a trip down memory lane via the sound effects of TSTO…

I’m Back And A Little Update…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Feels like it’s been a while since I’ve said that, two weeks to be exact.  Did you miss me? I missed you guys.

Safi did an AMAZING job filling in for me while I was away, with his busy travel/work schedule I know it wasn’t easy for him but he knocked it out of the park in my absence!  And, for the most part, you all were extremely respectful and helpful!  And for both of those things, I am extremely grateful to Safi and this amazing community!

So where have I been?  What took me away for two weeks? Contrary to popular belief…I was not in fact on vacation.  Sorry CJ Disney was, unfortunately, not where I spent the last two weeks. 

I’ve been keeping a secret from you guys for quite a while now, and it’s finally time to let the cat out of the bag….
