Shout Out! And the July Finalists Are….

shoutoutrevised Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well June has come and gone (and we’re a little into July now!) and that means it’s about that time to pick our Tapper of the Month!  Our cross blog monthly contest to find the Tapper of the month between TSTO Topix, TSTO game and TSTO Addicts has been set up because we want to feature YOU!   Your town, your words anything/everything about YOU!  Each month we’ll pick a handful of readers across the three blogs to be featured in our Monthly Shout Out, where we’ll feature your town and some fun information about you.  Then at the end of the Shout Out we’ll let the TSTO Community vote for their favorite.  That winner will be declared our Tapper of the Month! This has been a fun process for Topix, game and Addicts!

We’ve enjoyed getting to know each of you through your submissions and we really loved seeing your creative work on display!  We received many submissions for the July Tapper of the month and had a tough decision to narrow it down to just 5, but we did it!  The writing staff of all THREE blogs came together and collectively agreed that all 5 of the finalists were Tapper of the Month material! So check out the top 5 and be sure to vote for your favorite!  Remember the Tapper you choose could be the Tapper of the Month and be featured on Topix, game and Addicts for the month of July AND win a $10 gift card!  So choose wisely!

Now with out further ado the finalists are…… In no particular order

Vlisserman and his TSTO World!
Here’s some more info about Vlisserman:
“Hello tappers of!

Holland here! (so excuse my english please 😉 ) I love reading your blog, it’s been very helpfull so far and an inspiration to keep on tapping.
Today I finaly did it: I stitched my town for you guys to enjoy!
A few things i did I want to point out for extra inspiration:
– The skating ring / olympic area
– Woodlands with a few bungalows for rent
– Squidport is an actual port with docks for my boats
– Downtown is always growing, slowly pushing my houses to the side but making it a real shopping centre!
– Wax museum became a real statue museum including some ice sculptures (looks better in the winter)
I added my Krustyland too. Love my Valentine area and haunted house.

To shortly answer your questions:
-Your origin ID = Vlisserman
-A few sentences about YOU (where you live, what you do for a living, any hobbies etc) 29 male from Holland, I’m an engineer and I love to rock some tunes on my guitar. and play TSTO of course!
-How long you’ve been playing TSTO = I’ve been a daily player since march 2013
-Why you love TSTO = the humor, relaxing, maybe a little nostalgic to all the hours of sim city when i was a kid?
-Why you should be featured in our Monthly Shout Out = to find out if there is a difference between your american designs and a dutch design haha. I’ve been to the USA last year and noticed you have a different way of setting up your towns and cities, so who knows.
Well thats it for now, would love to hear from you guys what you think about my town.
Feel free to use parts of the image for other items on your blog 😉

aayars04 and her TSTO Town!
Here’s more about aayars04:
“Hi Addicts!
My name is Amanda and my origin ID is aayars04. I’m 26 and from a small town in New Jersey. I’m married and have a 1 1/2 year old son. I enjoy reading, the outdoors, spending time with my family, and of course TSTO! I’ve been playing TSTO for a little over a year now. I love TSTO, it’s just such an awesome game!  It started out as just a game to pass the time, but it soon turned into an addiction! I enjoy getting new buildings, decorations, etc and always take a lot of thought as to where I want to place everything. I also like how each level update brings new things-quests, buildings, characters. And the holiday updates are always fun too! Also, playing this game is a HUGE stress reliever (lol); it’s nice to come home from a stressful day at work and just escape into my Springfield! I also enjoy all the information and advice here on TSTO Addicts blog, you’ve definitely helped create an addict in me, haha! I find myself checking out the posts regularly to get some ideas or to see what’s worth spending my precious donuts on. So thanks for having such a great blog! I hope you all enjoy my town! It’s been such a blast designing it and I’m proud of how far it’s come!

Thanks for the opportunity to show my town off a little! Take care,

Here’s a little more about jaaddddeee664:
“My origin ID is jaaddddeee664. I live in upstate NY and have been playing tapped out for over a year now. I started out just playing around with it but as my town started to grow and grow I fell in love with the game and now i love it!!! I just wish there were more buildings and quests!

And finally….

CXonor13 and his Springfield!
Here’s a little more about CXonor13:
“Hello! I am CXonor13 (Conor) and I am from Co. Louth, Ireland.

I started playing The Simpsons: Tapped Out in January of 2014 and I have been hooked to the game ever since then! My absolute favorite aspect of the game is the designing aspect, I always love making faux 3D designs and re-creating some of my favorite scenes from the show. 
I also love seeing some of my favorite characters walking around my Springfield and tapping through the great questlines! (Still waiting for Cookie Kwan and Lindsay Naegle though lol! 😛 )
Here are just a few screenshots of my Springfield! Sorry I cannot provide a panoramic view, I am absolutely clueless at that lol!”

    Greetings from Vlisserman

    • dwightshep425

      hey weeksy2 your town is the best town that i have seen in tsto it is just amazing and i would wish that you would add me so i can look at your town more.Thanks!

      • Hi dwightshep425 thanks, glad you liked it. Sorry if I’ve had to clear your request, i was already maxed out when I won and got so many more request after winning. I’ve just had to clear a lot of neighbours ( which was really hard ) as I just haven’t got the time to get through 100 neighbours a day but if you send me another request I’ll add you in.

  6. OMG! I have been considered as one of the Top 5!!! The other entries are just… wow… I am scared! Thank you so much guys for considering me! I can’t believe it! 😀

  7. All have creative ideas and towns but I’m gonna have to give CXonor13 my vote for Tapper of The Month. A lot of thought has clearly been given in that town as there is sooo much going on yet it is still organized and neat. Since I was one of the candidates last month, I have been trying to elevate my town to Tapper of The Month status and hopefully it will be there by next month 🙂

    • Thank you Kyle! Hey, do you have any slots on you’re Friends list free? 😉

      • Your welcome CXonor13, and ya I removed one person off my list and tried to add you but it still said I had too many, which it’s done before for some weird reason. It should work if you add me though, my username is KMonk023. I’ll see your town soon 🙂
