    If my character was deleted would there be a way for me to get it back?

    No, but if you come back before March 8th, you are eligible to get back all of your skill locks as well as anniversary gifts on a new character.

    [/ QUOTE ]I was just wondering the same thing...

    Against my better judgement, I resubscribed my oldest account. We'll see what happens.

    So, yeah - now I'm in both TC3 and EA-Land.

    Posted on the main page of http://ea-land.ea.com/ I have no idea when it will happen but it does say that to get it you have to re-activate before March 2008 [​IMG]

    Former Members Of The Sims Online: You can come back for FREE right now by just downloading the game and REACTIVATING your account. If you do so before March 2008, you will get your earned 'account based' privileges back (gifts, skill locks etc...) when we run our 'amnesty' program. So make sure you are in game before that event!

    I had read the same thing too somewhere. Getting old sim reactivated, getting sim age and skills.

    About activating old sims:
    I asked this question on ea.com. I was told, that an account over 90 days old will not get sim age and skills. It's deleted, there no way for the information to be bright backup.

    Having worked a sys tems department that had to do the daily, weekly, monthy 'backups' on servers, although not for EA/Maxis ;-) I'm sure that the industry norm is that all backups are kept for 6 years (at least that's the time in the UK, sommat to do with tax and audits)

    So in theory ALL of TSO files are somewhere, even if they are in storage somewhere. It may be that they will pull all of the monthly backups and extract the account info for any that were 'deleted' in each particular month.

    Sounds like an exciting job for someone [​IMG] thats if it already hasn't been done.

    Each acct has entitlement age, thats all that is needed to determine what gifts or skill locks it has earned.
     
  11. Hmm...does that mean if we happen to want to 'recreate' a sim on an existing account....we should do so now so it'll get the amnesty?

    Hmm....that would be sooooo sweet.

    [/ QUOTE ]That's the way I understand it. The recreation, however, has to be in either EA-Land or TC3.

    My newly-created sim in EA-Land has an entitlement of somewhere over 1500 days - that's just over four years. [​IMG]
