i can't really go into a lot of details about this... lol i'm a roomie at a skill house, and we have a number of sims that override the timeout feature and sometimes ask me or the other roomies to boot them out if they stop skilling and start acting up. i generally jsut do it, but i kinda feel like i shouldn't. not becasue i think they should stay and watch their sims, (i do believe skilling is boring, but it's a large aspect of them game, so i think maxis should make it more interesting) but why should i mercy boot them? we need the house hours, we're competing for #1 on skills list, and hours are crucial. we don't have a full house 24/7.. skill houses aren't like they used to be, mostly b/c game populatoin is way down from what it use dto be. what is your position on mercy boots/courtesy kicks? do you give them to your guests? do you expect them from roomies/owners?
