Shout Out! And the August Finalists Are….

shoutoutrevised Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well July has come and gone (and August is here!) 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 August 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!

IMPORTANT NOTE: Before we get to the finalists…just a quick announcement.  Tapper of the Month will be on hiatus for the next two months.  We’ve made the hiatus decision based on the summer holidays & the pending TSTO events on the horizon.   So, we will have no winners for September and October Tappers of the Month.  We’ll pick it back up with a November Tapper of the Month.  You can still send in your submissions now to be considered for November’s Tapper of the Month (final submissions will be due in October, don’t worry we’ll announce a reminder about it…it is a few months away 😉 )
 Don’t worry, we’ll still have plenty of contest fun coming up! 🙂 

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

Tphillips621 and his Springfield!
Here’s some more info about Tphillips:
“Hey guys! My name is Tyler and I am 24 years old and I currently live in Colorado Springs, Colorado however I am originally from the great cheese state of Wisconsin!  For the past five years I have served in the United States Army as a military police officer and I am currently stationed at Fort Carson, Colorado! Other than the army I am a avid Green Bay Packers and Milwaukee Brewers fan and I also love to go hiking and enjoy the outdoors. I have been playing TSTO since December 2013 however I wish I started a long time ago! First and foremost the reason I love playing TSTO is due to the Simpsons show. I have been watching The Simpsons ever since I can remember and its great that I can now be the architect of my own Springfield and build it from the ground up. I love being able to take time and utilize the level of detail that the game offers. Its really amazing! Oh and not to mention being able to collect all the Springfield characters and buildings! I think I should be featured in the monthly shout out because I have put a ton of time and detail into my Springfield and my hope is that other tappers can use some of my ideas in their Springfield’s just as I have done and its always a good thing to get my name out there and make some more great neighbors!”

melaniebil613 and her Springfield!
Here’s a little more about melaniebil613:
“Hi, im melaniebil613.  Im from Quebec Canada, and have been playing simpsons tapped out for about 10 months now. On my android. I just love playing the simpsons game since i have been hooked on the simpsons ever since i was a kid. My boyfriend and i just love playing this game and looking at all the decocrations and characters remind us of older epiodes. Its really great. I play everyday and try to give my characters 4 hrs missions most of the time to check if their are any updates. I also got my mother hooked on the game, because every time she came over, i was almost always on my game making changes, or just giving my characters missions. Since im a stay at home mom of 3, i tell both my mother and boyfriend when ever there are game updates. I just love this game.

I follow the game updates on and check what people are saying on tsto pretty much everyday. Im thankfull for thsi web site that helps me get new friends and informs us on everything going on with the game. 🙂
I like to make changes in my simpsons town as well as krustyland whenever I can. Its fun for me and makes it more interesting for my friends when they visit me 🙂 .”
