Not a theme suggestion, but a few rooms, like the 50 shades room, that can be added to houses with transport arrows. We have the Alton Towers house and avenue, but most houses have an outside entrance, except the Midtown Apartment. I would love having a room or more to attach and decorate as I choose.

We've had themes based on Japan, China, Egypt, Greece, Rome, and a number of other cultures. This isn't "cultural appropriation"! YoWorld is where you can be anything you want! Men can get on here and make themselves an Egyptian princess! Women can be dark-skinned men who wear styling gold suits and backward baseball hats. It's a GAME!

Something dark and spooky. Typically the only time of year that something dark comes out is Halloween. Let's fix that! :D :devil:

The company profits off it's portrayal of cultures! My points still stand! It ceases to be "only a game" when a profit is made from spreading misrepresentations about a culture! (Any culture!)
Edit: It's only a game, it's only a hat, (war bonnet) it's just a sexy Halloween costume, it's only a gesture in a sports stadium that's really meant to honor those people! NO! It is spreading stereotypes and folks are profiting from them when the people whose culture it is from DON'T and may face reprisal "for being too ethnic" if they do those same things. Cultural exchange (which BVG could do) and cultural appropriation aren't the same!

https://www.huffingtonpost.ca/2016/10/31/halloween-indigenous-not-your-costume_n_12734836.html

"Hollywood romanticized a pan-'Indian' image of plains Indians and often didn't even get it accurate so there became this romantic relationship with people and the idea of what an 'Indian' is," she says, noting that there are over 600 unique nations within Canada alone. "You're also putting it as a thing of the past and that we're not able to progress or we're not here today."
"Headdress is a ceremonial thing and it's within certain nations and there's often cultural earning or protocol that goes along with wearing it," she explains. "Not even just any indigenous person could wear one and often women aren't wearing them. So the big problem is a lot of these model-y women just dress up in underwear and wear them. So there's a misunderstanding of the cultural significance.
"

https://www.huffingtonpost.com/kelsie-brynn-jones/this-is-halloween_b_8398110.html

One example of this, is Pocahontas herself. Pocahontas was a victim of kidnap and repeated sexual assault, slavery, and forced migration. When you are wearing one of those Pocahottie costumes, you are not only appropriating Native culture and further sexualizing Native bodies, in the case of Pocahontas you are exploiting a victim of rape in a community where more than 1 out of every 3 women are raped - mostly at the hands of non-Native men.

When you wear a headdress you are not honoring Native and indigenous men who earned them literally feather by feather in most cases. The headdress, or warbonnet, is not only cultural among the Nations and tribes who wear them, it is also of spiritual significance. Putting a headdress on your head when you are non-Native and/or have not earned the right to wear one, is as offensive to Native Americans as artist Andres Serrano’s infamous piece where he placed a crucifix in a large vial of his own urine is to many Christians.
CUT
To add insult to injury, while you go clubbing in tacky faux-Native regalia without being called out, real Native people often face difficulties when wearing Native clothing and headpieces that some of us have a legitimate right to wear. Only a few weeks ago, a Native high-school graduate was banned from wearing a single eagle feather in his hair during the graduation ceremony. Native men are frequently banned from having long hair in many US jails. In a country where Native people are frequently disallowed from exhibiting their own culture, America, can you please not?



These guys begin to explain what I am saying pretty well. Notice all the stereotyped things they have? They are reclaiming them. Re-appropriation! Same with the imagery they use in their videos and some of the songs they sample.

https://youtu.be/8gqXdXLWSF8
https://youtu.be/lpkUISUx3Lo Electric Pow Wow Drum (A VERY good illustration of the stereotypes that continue to be spread via various media. To make it worse, those are white men in redface!)

The scrawny guy in the feathered headdress is Ryan Redcorn. The 1491s use satire to make social commentary.
https://youtu.be/9BHvpWP2V9Y
In this video, they are addressing the fact that some Natives embrace certain stereotypes in order to make a profit from tourists. The book they mention perpetuates the "noble savage" "magical nature dweller" stereotypes. That's why the Elder is eyerolling.

https://youtu.be/NuzPoidV4nI

https://youtu.be/h0kJJ-DTGQQ

Ryan Redcorn's poem. (AIM is American Indian Movement. They are controversial and seen by some as thugs.)

https://youtu.be/3FUgDutdauQ

Yes, this post is long. I hope to at least get through to some who read it. It is important not just for Native American culture but ALL marginalized cultures!

I think a nice big full size house (bought with coins) and a giant front and back yard. Yes, like a giant old fashioned farmhouse!

Hi,
I'd like to see a Museum Theme, Library Theme, Dog Park Theme, or NASA Theme. I also have been asking for a Rocky Horror Picture Show Theme for Halloween. Also, just an idea, but do you think you can work on the continuity when you create themes. The interior rooms have not matched what the outside exterior shows.

Guess (173903013) wrote:I think it would be great to have a platform just like Auction House, but instead of selling your items....you post items you are wanting to buy and list a price you will pay for that item. If someone has the item in their inventory...they can click a button to sell it to that person. If no one sells them the item after a specific amount of time....they will receive a notification. If someone sells them the item, their listing will dissapear. I think this would be a great way to obtain items you are looking for and a way for players to sell items they no longer want.


Maybe even a auction site for people to resell a home that they dont want anymore

I love this idea and For old Homes to be re release but in differnt colors the one i missed out on that i would love to buy is the Penthouse Tower from 2009 :D :D :D :D :D

Have you noticed a few more suggestions threads than usual around here lately?

At YoWorld HQ, we've been working on some pretty sweet changes that will make YoWorld even better in 2017, and we can only do it with your help!

Part of our efforts to listen to YoFans better this year involves being more transparent with you about which new themes are coming up in the near future. Of course, we won't ruin the surprise for all of our upcoming themes and events - but we want YoFans to be able to share what you want to see in YoWorld!

So, dear YoFan, you'll find a list of themes that you can share suggestions for right here in this post! Please make sure you're sharing your suggestions in the right theme's thread, or it may get missed. And be sure to check back here periodically for new themes to share your thoughts about!

We :heart: you!

I know theres 1 high school graduation set but its not the cutest thing ever and it only comes in 1 color.

Is it possible to fit in a tiny theme with a graduation robe, cap, diploma (and possibly a medal) within the next 2 months with a few different colors? (Even a free popup that includes a robe, cap and diploma?)
I graduate this year and it would be cool to make an outfit!

Amphitrite (186654727) wrote:Has there ever been a LOTR theme? I know it is well past when Jackson's movies came out but that doesn't put the books out of date. At least do The Hobbit. It could be so charming and cute. Could throw in the English countryside look and the 18th century rural dress. Lots of vegetable and flower garden. The house should be done just as was written though. Underground, no second floor--that means no stairs cases!, round doors and rounded ceiling, lots of wood and rural 18th century English decor and food.

And yeah, furry bare feet!


Want to add retro sci-fi space tv shows. Someone mentioned "Star Trek" but I also am a fan of "Babylon 5." Love the "X-Files" too which has been brought back, the news seasons and plenty of recent syndication on BBC America. Started watching "Stargate" over again from the beginning recently too on cable. Forgot just how much I loved that series.

Do one theme large or say 4 different themes as sub-themes of one sci-fi theme. Noting the "Stargate" would tie-in with Egyptian themes as well. I was thinking of a stargate looking at the Animated Underwater Door and the Magic Portal...

How about Jules Verne's novels as inspiration?

Next time a pirate reboot...Treasure Island? (could even toss in a bit of Scotland...)

Next time a fairy theme, do it in summer...A Midsummer Night's Dream?

How about Romeo and Juliet for Valentine's Day? and use the Zeffirelli film for inspiration?

Medieval? how about King Arthur legends rather than the usual generic reboots? But please keep in the darker and more sinister parts of the legend--just to frame things, not that you should include this element, King Arthur is born the child from a rape by impersonation via Merlin's sorcery...

But yeah I really want the Tolkien and the retro sci-fi...(for me) especially space...
(maybe others can add to the tv mentions I provided).
