Parsimonious Needs Your Help!

You can take a quick survey at Parsimonious to help them keep their site up.

I'm fairly new to The Sims myself (about 3 years) and I believe Parsimonious was the first site I found when I found out about CC.  One of my best friends was playing The Sims 1 and she really wanted me to play the game.  At first I thought it was really stupid, but after finding out about CC, I pretty much went on a downloading spree and  was addicted to building and decorating.  Quickly moved on to The Sims 2 and of course now The Sims 3:)

Anyway, Parsimonious is looking for at least 2,000 people to take the survey.  This blog gets that many visitors in around two hours, so help if you can.

Please save us from quite certain death...

Kate says: in addition to a lot of administrative chaos, I'm now faced with a big financial problem which only YOU can solve (yes you...). I shan't bore you with the specific details here (you can read those in our Support pages) but I am now begging each and every one of you to give up a minute of your life to fill in this survey.

It doesn't matter if you've filled it out in previous years, it requires no information that is specific and personal to you, no tracking, no sign up, essentially it is completely harmless, but absolutely vital for us in order to keep a huge portion of our funding (no funding = no Parsimonious or any of the other 27 Sims sites who get free hosting from us). In spite of a really quiet year we're still chowing our way through well over 100Gb of bandwidth each and every day, thanks to some canny thinking and some help from our web host, costs have actually gone down in spite of rising traffic for the first time in 7 years BUT it is still a great deal more than I can personally afford. So please just take it - it won't bite and there's a good chance that it help if enough people respond (I am looking for at least 2000 responses in order to stave off disaster, but getting more responses would be very helpful)

Please help Parsimonious if you can

Thank you Lotus:)
