Title: TSR IS A SUCK-ASS SUCKY WEBSITE
Post by: BlueSoup on 2006 December 13, 03:01:18
I am feeling rageful right now.  I can't believe how much of an asshole Thomas is, and to delete all the comments about these stupid changes that are less than stellar is such a low move.

That site is going downhill superfast and I can't wait for the implosion.  I hope the good FA's (Cyclonesue, Cashcraft) get out now and get their own websites for free.

Hell, you know what?  For both of those artists, if they read this, I will host a free website for you for one year if you leave TSR and the festering stinkhole it's become.

Edit:  Actually, any artist at TSR is welcome to approach me about potentially hosting them for one year (or helping out with hosting).  I'll look at your work and if I like it, I'll do it. :)

Just had to get that off my chest.

Oh, netseeker (http://www.thesimsresource.com/profiles/245038/) apparently feels the same way:

Quote
About Me: I can see the truth hurts and so the admin had to remove what I had written on my profile page, as
if I'm the only one with eyes around here that can see what's happening and everyone else is too
blind to see for themselves. Trust me people aren't all that blind and stupid and can see and
figure things out for themselves without having me to tell them. When they do it'll be the site
that feels it and not me. I'll be really surprised if these new measures don't alienate all the
good non-FAs on this site and all the aspiring artists on here as well.

Thomas seems to live in his own little world, where only what he thinks and feels matters. He's the main reason TSR sucks, and will continue to keep sucking more and more.

Why in the hell do they have the BIGGEST ASSHOLE on the board interacting with people?! He annoys and alienates everyone who isn't on his payroll, and a lot of people who ARE on his payroll (and who leave because of that.)

And why do they keep getting more tyrannical with the people who are still visiting the site? Don't they get it?! How is alienating the remaining people who haven't wised up yet a good business move?

Oh right, they have a pseudo-businessman/petty thug in charge. Who doesn't even play the damn game.  There is something seriously wrong with the two biggest fansites being adminned by men who don't even play the game.

I wish people who have had their subs renewed without permission and/or banned without refunds would also complain to Maxis/EA in addition to Paypal. With enough complaints they'd do something, even if it was just ceasing to list them on the official site news, which can seem to be an endorsement. The official site certainly shouldn't endorse a site which bans based on hearsay and shares the private information of paying members.

You Rock TSR

I just wanted to but my two cents in on this new rating system. I think it's a wonderful idea. I have always disliked the number system, so this is a great difference!!!! I even like the cup system. I mean sure there are bugs to iron out, but in general this should stop the rate hating and all the bad feelings that have become so clear as of late. Personally I never blamed you folks at TSR.

So keep up the great work, and I'll keep creating things!
From the mind of the sick and twisted to your sims home. :devil:

It never fails, any site that gets taken over by businesspeople goes down the tubes fast.

These people are only concerned with making money and not with making people happy, they don't seem to understand that if they don't make people happy eventually they will not be making anymore money.

tis rather sad, but predictable.

I have a sub at TSR *ducks*

I really enjoy having access to things by great creators like Cashcraft, NoFrills, Cyclonesue, Windkeeper, etc, etc, etc. There's a lot of shit there, but if you find a few artists you like I think it's worth it... :O

I guess the key for me is to not get involved at all with people there. I sweep in every couple of days, download what I like, make a few nice comments and ratings, and fly back out. I don't even know who Thomas is (but I think I have an ok idea from the posts above).

I would love to see TSR go free, but I don't think it's going to happen. The FA's all seem to be so loyal to TSR, so they must be doing something right, right?

I personally have never had any reason to be unhappy with TSR in the year or so I have sub'd there.

Netseeker's comments were deleted allright and not only from the news thread but also from her profile. She is always outspoken against TSR and was offered a perma-ban. Thomas thinks her stuff to be shit. Cutting her off is no sweat off his back.  From her profile before she had listed a rant about TSR hiring offsite artists to become FAs while ignoring the loyal TSR submitters that have been uploading creations since the start. He removed the original type to prevent people from reading the truth. The bastard is a dick and greedy as a person can get.

Aside from crappy, evil, etc., TSR is also a damn weirdly designed site, apparently.  I commented yesterday (I think) in the "I Smell Bullshit" thread on the amount of FA content that was free.  But everything isn't as it first appears.

If I go to their front page now and use the filter to find downloads that are ONLY by FA's and are free, it finds 20 files.

However, if I go to http://www.thesimsresource.com/artists/TSR_Archive/downloads/sims2/ I find lots of downloads that are free, and are by FA's.  The difference is that they are credited to the artist "TSR_Archive," instead of their actual creators.  So of course the filter didn't find them when looking for FA's.  

What's up with this?  I guess it can just be a way to make sure the FA's don't make any money for their items that are currently free, maybe. I only found this "archive" by accident though--I might be blind and simply overlooking it but I don't see any link to this archive of stuff at all from the front page.  It might be some new thing they are in the middle of implementing or something but it seemed kind of shady to me.

 :roll:

Post by: wicked_one on 2006 December 13, 09:10:21
if you look at netseekers profile now, everything is gone, except the creations....how nice of them!

and the archive is umm like right beneath the menu lol look right under the search bar and you'll see SIMS2 252637 Total Sims 2 Files 188707 Free Sims 2 Files SHOW ARCHIVE <<<click that :)

also they just promoted Madisim (aka Madison) to FA status even though he primarily makes lots (their new system is anti-lot/wall makers). God he should have been an FA ages ago.

Of course this brings me back to my favourite theme - stop all these conglomerate sites then you'll stop all these huge costs and the need for subscriptions.

Let people who can afford $5 a month have their own sites (they can press the "set up a forum" button on their cpanel if they can't write html pages).   Let those who can't afford $5 a month upload to The Exchange, Yahoo groups, Myspace or their small free space that nearly everyone gets with their ISP connection service.

Or they can use one of the email file sharing systems such as POBS at N99 or just generally post a picture somewhere, mail to the first applicant and ask that person to share.

WE DON'T NEED PAYSITES!  There is nothing a paysite brings us we couldn't achieve for free.

What, no tales of how you have to beg on the street corner to keep this site going?  And the terrible hardship of how your kids and your dog are starving due to the huge bandwidth?  And the server costs are going to force you to live in your car?  I am shocked!  :D  :D  :D

TSR is kind of like the Walmart of TS2, except the quality/value roles between wallyworld and the homegrown stores are reversed.  Doesn't really make sense.

I had a site that I paid for a while back, and it cost $100 a year to keep, the domain name was $15.  I don't even KNOW how much bandwidth I had since I never came anywhere close to it.  Unless these people are just stupid (which begs to be argued) I won't believe that any of these sites really need to beg for donations.  If you're that strapped for cash there are plenty of free hosts.  And if you're REALLY that strapped then you need to get a job, not sit at home making shit for TS2.

It probably does cost them quite a bit.  And I don't begrudge Delphy getting a wage from it (if he does) as he does actually work actively on the site.  But anyway at least no one is excluded from enjoying the content because they can't afford to pay.


Title: TSR IS A SUCK-ASS SUCKY WEBSITE
Post by: BlueSoup on 2006 December 13, 16:31:58
He only works actively on coding of the site, not actually monitoring or moderating it.  If he wanted to work on coding, he should get a job in that industry instead.

But no, Delphy, while deceitful and duplicitous, is not the most evil.  I used to donate there but I stopped when I found out about the secret board that was hosted to share my personal information and that LyricLee was given free reign to ban anyone who dared to speak against her or her hypocritical viewpoints.

Now that she's gone (ding-dong, the witch is dead), I may consider donating again, but really, only to get access to the faster server.

Anyone knows how the faster server works on the weekend, btw?

Actually I rarely download stuff (at all) so I don't think I have had a chance to judge that.  What I do wish is that I could have a fast server for posting!  I see a thread I can help with some info for or something and by the time it's uploaded to the thread, the info is about 2 months out of date :D

That's true, but donating to help someone so they don't have to pay $1800/mo out of their own pocket is quite different from donating so someone gets a wage. It doesn't violate the EA EULA, so it's not in the same camp as TSR or another actual paysite.

Kind of dishonest though, to borrow from Delphy: "morally wrong" though not  illegal.

Meh, I guess no one has to donate if they don't want to.

I got a TSR subscription when I first got Sims2, because everyone I asked said 'OMGgetTSRtheyaretehbest11!!1'.

So, being small and naive as I am, I did. Only to then discover I had paid money for a steaming pile of fail.

I once long ago submitted some things to TSR (old crappy stuff but nonetheless). After learning more and more about this site I wanted to remove them but -unless I'm missing the obvious- I see no way to delete my own uploads. Kinda gives the message that he "owns" anything placed on that site, no?


Title: TSR IS A SUCK-ASS SUCKY WEBSITE
Post by: BlueSoup on 2006 December 13, 19:03:02
I've talked to a couple of TSR creators in the past day that say they are unable to remove their content from the site.  It's most definitely a silent "I own you" statement.


Title: TSR IS A SUCK-ASS SUCKY WEBSITE
Post by: Mac_in_Black on 2006 December 13, 19:29:21
Well... if memory serves, on the submission page, at the bottom, in a box, there is a disclaimer (and, uh, DISCLAIMER is spelled wrong too, like discaimer or something retardo) and in there it basically says TSR owns your shit and they can distribute it any way they so please.

I'd like to remove my shit from there as I'm working on my own site now. The recent changes have pushed me over the edge. I agree with netseeker. I'm surprised she's still on there and not dead by the T Mafia. Oh well, I don't have that much up there and I can put better stuff on my site. I still have a sub, but I think I'll be contacting PayPal about that soon enough.

Ok, I looked. Here's the shit at the bottom when you submit something:

Disclaimers & Important Information
Do not submit any files that are not your own creations. You should also be sure not to use other creator's bases for your own work without gaining their permission first, and properly crediting them. Any submitters sending work that is not rightfully their own may have all of their work removed from TSR and be banned from submitting in future.

By submitting files to us you are giving us (The Sims Resource) permission to host those files permanently and to be distributed via any media (electronic or physical). Files sent in a different format may not be used on the site due to the amount of work involved building previews and correcting errors. If you want your work featured here, please take the time to submit it properly.

 I have read and agree to the dislaimer

Even better, it's misspelled as DISLAIMER, like dis is laimer dan anyting.

Aha. Dis lamer indeed. I knew I wasn't crazy. I dunnow what ever posessed me to submit there. Guess I didn't think I'd ever feel strongly about removing my stuff. But it's the worst upload policy on a sims site I've ever seen...how basically people's own work becomes his when placed on TSR. Even EA/Maxis aka the rightful creators and owners of all Sims related things have the option for people to remove their creations from the exchange...but Mr. Thomas is above even Maxis of course.  :x

Try getting banned from TSR - if you're lucky it might even work. I know a creator managed to get her creations removed because Thomas banned her from TSR after accusing her of being a filesharer. He was of course tipped off from Rose in that super secret forum on MTS2.

If you can't take your stuff down, couldn't you sabotage it? Make overwriting files by the same name? Use the GUIDs over and over until everyone knows your stuff from there won't work? You could put a warning up on other sites to simmers telling them not to use your stuff there, make it avaible elsewhere? Steve would hear about it and get pissed that the files were bad and take them down? You think maybe?

Where there's a will there's a way.

I really don't get that.  They're shooting themselves in the foot more than anything by refusing to let people remove or even edit their own submissions.  Imagine how much lousy, low-rated crap that rarely if ever gets downloaded would vanish from their servers overnight if all the creators could get rid of their old, embarrassing items!  Sure, they'd be able to boast fewer items overall, but they'd also be able to kick their reputation for having a few nice items in an ocean of worthless crap...

So, that person puts up a site containing your content, and claim they were the ones who originally made it. TSR's all like 'Dude, this person says you pinched their shit, which is odd, cos I never saw their site before',
And then you're all like 'Yeah, it's true, I did, they sent it all to me over AIM one time before they opened that site, cuz we was friends, and then I said it was mine, and they were all like 'YOU BITCH!' and we ain't friends no more but I'm gonna keep taking their stuff, innit...'
And then they're all like 'GTFO, THEIF!!'

Or perhaps a less retarded version of that dialogue.

I dunno, that's pretty good dialogue jess.  :lol:  But TSR is PG-13 ya know so they'd keep it clean.

Perhaps...
"Pardon me miss, but it appears you have goods that do not rightfully belong to you on this site. This was brought to our attention by some lads over yonder hill that find you quite nice to look at but can't deny you are a petty thief. My apologies, but I must remove you and your contents from my site this instant."

And then say some Our Fathers and Hail Marys and you're good to go.  :wink:


I nearly sprayed water all over my computer I was laughing so hard.

I have only two things over there and they can have them because I've done better. It's ashame that they have some whackjob in charge now. That site has gone to the hellhounds.

and the archive is umm like right beneath the menu lol look right under the search bar and you'll see SIMS2 252637 Total Sims 2 Files 188707 Free Sims 2 Files SHOW ARCHIVE <<<click that :)



If I "click that" I see, simply, "the archive", which includes everythigng by everyone.

 What I'm talking about is the stuff that is currently listed as "Creator: TSR_Archive" rather than as the actual creators.  Basically, if you want to see what FA items are currently free, check out that "creator's" page (http://www.thesimsresource.com/artists/TSR_Archive/)  rather than using the filter.  

It strikes me as shady because #1, they don't exactly tell you about it, and #2, if TSR can temporarily claim FA's work for a fictional creator, what's to stop them from permanently claiming anyone else's work under a fictional creator's tag?  

It would not surprise me if, instead of removing a banned user's items, they simply gave them a new creator name and let them get lost in the vast and smelly heap.  And after seeing the turn this thread has taken--that TSR claims ownership of everything uploaded to it, and that people can't remove their own uploads, it seems even more shady.

:lol:  Thomas IS TSR. I'm sure he's just a good friend of Steve's and Steve doesn't have the business know-how to make it go, he just wants to review stuff and run through the chat room naked (that's what the last TSR newsletter claimed), so T probably has a certificate in wackoff and he gets to have ultimate power with the money. I'm sure he gives Steve a weekly allowance for lunch.

Um... I think the name on my receipts is Jan Isaacson? Something like that. I was curious as to who that was too. T's Mom?

Yeah, I may have 120 things up there but they can keep 'em. I've got gobs more not up there. I can do better if I ever care to create again. I'll throw them all up on my own site someday, when I become unemployed and can sit around all day creating for Sims2 like you so often read in the bios of FAs/SAs and such.

If anyone of you bothered to read the Staff-page you'd know that Steve, Thomas, Jan, Johan and Per were the actual founders of TSR.

And to those of you who think that it's cheap to run a site like TSR should think again. TSR uses serious amounts of bandwidth, several hundred gigabytes of traffic each month and a lot of dedicated servers.

Bash pay-sites all you want, fine by me, but at least act like you know what you're talking about otherwise it's just ridiculous.


And 90% of it is garbage with just a few decent creators,
Ridiculous or not if they got rid of most of the garbage tsr would be almost void.

Well, good for them. Now they're all rich. Sure, it started out harmless but it's grown into a monster. I'm not going to feel sorry for them or their bandwidth issues, or their crap content issues, or their pissy attitude issues.

Fact is, Thomas treats everyone like shit unless you're one of the ass-kissing FAs that bring home the bacon.

You know what, TSR can go belly up if it's such a terrible life for them. Sheesh. Give it up already. Perhaps we do know what we're talking about and that is why this site exists. If they weren't making money and enjoying it why keep it up? Obviously 90% of their members don't matter squat to them. If it's so terrible, well, why are the forums down today because of a HUGE upgrade. Why bother? Thank be to Jesus they're doing that. I'm sure we're all going to see rainbows or twinkly stars on the site now. Shit, we might even be able to go on and beg for benes.

Sorry if we offended you but this site isn't exactly a love triangle for Thomas or any other pay site out there.

Ridiculous is trying to change the subject to skirt around the topic - TSR sucks, they are greedy, and they have no room to bring up ethics or legalities.  And no one is forcing TSR to incur bandwidth costs - there is an EA supported free Exchange.

Ridiculous is also various sites that shut down, claiming they don't have time for simming, and then you see they've become FAs at TSR - with brand spaking new items.  Why lie in the first place?  Why not just admit you want the money?

Post by: AnneBonny on 2006 December 15, 03:24:32
Whatever excuses the artists give as to why they shut down their sites...the one thing that is obvious is that Tom is hoping that the fans of the artist will go over to TSR to subscribe to get their stuff again. Classic equation for TSR. He'll see the site shut down or struggling with their webspace/bandwidth and make them an offer that can't be refused. Once accepted the artist will shut down their site to move to TSR where they will become an FA.  Won't be a shocker to see that Jirka becoming an FA soon either....

Yeah, this was being hinted around at in that thread too. The "little people" creators were starting to put T on the hot seat about why some people have become FAs and weren't even part of the site before that but other creators have been there for years pumping out really nice stuff and aren't FAs yet or even SAs.

Um, gosh, T didn't answer.

So then they went on to ask for criteria to become an SA/FA. Um, well, he didn't really answer that one either. Basically whoever the admin feels like bringing on as an FA. I think you're going to see more creators leave TSR. Nobody said life was fair, but that's just bullshit.

I can't believe that I paid a 6 month sub and spent the entire 6 months on probation and not allowed to post in the forums!  That's not really gonna have endeared me to them.

My "crime"?   I had to start a 2nd account as my first one had got messed up and I couldn't log into the forums.  After they tried and failed to fix it over a period of time I took matters into my own hands.  I felt entitled to take measures to get the access I had paid for.

Anyway 2nd accounts are apparently automatic probation.  They did finally fix me up, but effectively I was unable to use the service I was paying for fully for about one year.

I wrote a civil email explaining that their slow ass servers makes me call it quits. I had one month left on a six months sub and after they asked me to confirm if i indeed want to cancel (because they JUST FINISHED ANOTHER SERVER UPGRADE)...they cancel mine after I fucking say yes.

Now, I had a site that costed me $51.00 a month. It wasn't a sims site, it was a site to hold my catalog stuff I was selling.  It gets costly especially when I was not working and my site wasn't making any money.  I had to eventually give it up. It was a struggle for me to keep up the cost.  I was in college at the time and was hopping to make some money to help pay the bills.  $51.00 a month is high when you don't have it to shell out every month.

Since November 4 2006, Sims2Sisters have had a hair mesh file downloaded 8260 times.

If that number indicates 8260 individual subscribers, and if they have paid for 2 months sub only, in 40 days TSR have raked in at least 73,927 dollars (I am in uk, I don't have dollar sign on my keyboard).

I don't really know all of the financial background of TSR which used to be part of MGON International before they folded.  The only available stats I can find was when MGON was being financed by a venture capital company called Ledstiernan.  Ledstiernan is a public company and listed subscription rates and what not for 2001 - 2003 but I have no idea if that information is still accurate.

And it's all mostly in Swedish.  I speak money much more fluently than Swedish.

I have been doing some crude calculations based on figures from the TSR site.

Since November 4 2006, Sims2Sisters have had a hair mesh file downloaded 8260 times.

If that number indicates 8260 individual subscribers, and if they have paid for 2 months sub only, in 40 days TSR have raked in at least 73,927 dollars


Ibibi AB (which is TSR:s legal name) claimed to have made a whopping 416,000 SEK (appr. 60,885$) during the whole of 2005...

You do the math.

You may or may not trust this information because the link I got the figures from doesn't work anymore (Lokaldelen (http://www.lokaldelen.se/ld/foretag/profil.do?advanced=true&catIDs=660019&page=2&pageSize=25&companyID=85143), a Swedish search site for companies, and a search for Ibibi AB no longer gives any results. TSR is for some reason registered in Sweden, don't know why, the taxes are very high here but they must have a helluva accountant...)

We discussed it on a Swedish forum a while ago so that's how I could get the figures now.

I'm not too sure what is happening with TSR (besides being a sucky paysite), but I'm happy I never subscribed there. ): (Like I would. :roll:)

I know that it's been talked there, but I'm surprised to find that the guy (or the girl?) from Rubicon (Forwardmotion or something) was promoted *cough* to FA. I thought he said he'd stop making Sims stuff. :roll:

That's the new thing in Sims community. You say you need to get a life so you stop creating stuff for sims, but who knows maybe you'll be back someday, but for now you're closing your site. The next day you're on TSR, uploading your stuff as a FA.

Did you guys check out Forwardmotion's opener in the bio? Something about I should be out having a real life but instead I'm here creating life for you. Something to that effect. I'm too lazy to go look to do an exact quote.  :P Don't you just feel the love oozing from that site? Like, does that really mean you think everyone that goes to TSR for stuff is a loser because they have no lives, just like you, because they download your stuff and you make the stuff? I dunno, I didn't think it was great advertising for the site.  :lol:  It sort of has an edge to it. Perhaps Tom should reconsider that FA status he handed over.

It's good to be clean. I've only gone back for the Mac forum. That's what got me there in the first place so many years ago, not the content.  :D

And, get the nut out of the driver's seat and take charge yourself. I mean, nobody needs to come off like that. I don't feel sorry for them. Quit. Stop doing it. They DO have a choice.

My understanding of the word 'steal' is to deprive somebody of something.  As far as TSR is concerned, they still have their files, we have not deprived them from their possessions.

Full credit is given back to the FA's we are not passing these files off as our own.

The files are here, to give people the opportunity to aquire free content that should be free in the first place.

Either they dont understand? or cannot read anyway.
 
whats worse is they believe they have a right to do what they do because EA is not doing much if anything about it..
so whoever sells their pixelated creation is stealing' plain and simple.
 
EA has stated anything created using their programs belongs to maxis.

My guess is they dont mind being theives as long as no one from EA is screaming theif or out putting those pretty steele cuffs on their wrists

But there are no morals here, only those of sewer rats.


Morals are subjective.  I personally don't find it very moral that a lot of these so-called brilliant creators and site owners are trying to rake kids over the coals and bilk their parents out of their hard-earned money for shoddy workmanship and poor customer service.

Think of it this way:  We're letting potential customers try before they buy!

IMO the very reason this site is here, is basically because of the lack of morals on the side of the paysites.

Anyone with free content that just invites people to join have not been added here.

Some of us see it differently: We think it's wrong to charge for third-party game content and, as in other gaming communities, when someone tries it, we distribute the stuff for free, the way it should be. In short, we see things from the moral perspective of traditional gamers, and we think you can take your faffy artiste morals and shove 'em.

People who charge money for 3rd party game content have a vested interest in keeping any knowledge they may have from other people. They don't belong to the community; they parasitically feed off it. They're despicable.

But if you still want to claim it's our side that lacks morals, go right ahead. The more upset paysite owners get, the happier I am. I still have a bunch of booty to download -- and I actually have the time on this rainy Christmas day to do it.

Troll's recipe

Ingredients (for 4 persons):
1 cup patronizing attitude, "I know already, nobody cares, but I had to say it anyway" brand.
1 1/2 teaspoons closed mind accusations
1 oz. uninterested pose

Directions:
Put patronizing attitude in a bowl, add the accusations and the pose and carefully stir together avoiding lumps. Blend well with a cup or two of generic moral blabber. Bake in subtle arrogant indifference for 10-15 minutes.
Garnish with a couple of insults, and serve.


Easy, quick, but - sad to say - too common and known.
Nice try, anyway.

Cut the crap already.

When you are about the business of faking moral superiority, it's best you not contradict yourself.  It's ok for paysite creators to steal the work of EA games, steal meshes from 3D artist communities, and countless copyrighted photographs of others, but we are the ones who are immoral.  All that other stuff is ok because EA isn't doing anything about it?  

That logic is so severely flawed and yet so convenient for paysite creators (in several cases, the true thieves).

What is actually going on is that too many thieves passing themselves off as creators have the stones to call others thieves for doing what EA Games intended all along - freely distributing their files.  At least here, we're not ripping off someone else's work and pretending it is our own.

As an added bonus for you, EA is not doing anything to stop filesharing either.  The latest expansion pack even made it easier to distribute content by including all meshes when you package a file.  And the patched version of Bodyshop does nothing to change that, in spite of the temper tantrums of various "creators."

Still feel like EA is "souly [sic]" on your side?

Stop confusing moral relativity with morality.

At the absolute worst, "stealing" from TSR is like sneaking into a movie theater to see Gigli. That's the worst. That's the absolute most horrible terrible thing that PMDB could possibly be ever guilty of.

Nobody is losing a damn thing if you see a movie for free that you wouldn't have paid to see anyway. Even if you would have paid for it, that money doesn't go to the theaters (or site bandwidth), it goes directly to the money grubbing studios (or Thomas).

And who do you care more about? 20th Century Fox, or your local movie theater that gives back to the community?  If you care more about Warner Brothers, by all means, go buy their stuff, but if you dont, buy the candy and sneak in.

This site is simply the backdoor into the movie theater.

Haven't been to TSR in ages since they suck so hard but went round today reluctantly following a link to find a mesh (starts to sound like some nursery rhyme). Waded through 127 pages of stuff by Mia Barows (her status must be the one under FA as ALMOST all of her stuff was free). I was cruising through, initally pleasantly surprised that the mesh I'd gone looking for was still/really & truly free and then realized that she has 2 or 3 huge sets that need one item-mesh to work (as they pull their textures from it) and GOD DAMN but that one FUCKING thing out of 127 pages was LOCKED UP TIGHT by TSR.

Sorry to screech but I was appalled at their utter lack of shame & subtlety.

They are sooooo evil.

Looks like they're buying up any domain name people could get confused with, just so they don't lose any possible custom. Gone are the days  when if you mistyped and went to 'thesimresource.com' you'd end up at a porn site....(actually, I just checked, that now takes you to a plceholder, but still.)

Well, that's a sneaky thing...

I've finally got my new PC, and as such, my game can finally handle CC. I was fancying some of Carrigon's stuff, and Googled 'Sims Workshop', as my bookmarks got fucked somehow, and discovered that the URL www.simsworkshop.com redirects you to...The Sims Resource. *raises eyebrow*. Looks like they're buying up any domain name people could get confused with, just so they don't lose any possible custom. Gone are the days  when if you mistyped and went to 'thesimresource.com' you'd end up at a porn site....(actually, I just checked, that now takes you to a plceholder, but still.)


Gah! I think my head is going to explode with the suckiness and evil of TSR!

I agree. TSR is a pretty sucky website. Other than a handful of the FA, most of the stuff on there is pure and utter crap. Them fa's need to get there butts out of there and make them self a website.

I HATE the fact my favorite Sims site, Sims2sisters went over to their darkside (TSR).

I used to get whatever I wanted from TSR from a fellow simmer before all this paysite/share controversy started. I really never go there anymore. I am sure I've caught at least one virus in the past from that place.

You know what?  Since they were your favorite site, why don't you send them a message letting them know both that and how you feel about them moving to TSR?  Even mention the fact that BlueSoup has a site for wayward FA's if the TSR move is not agreeing with them...?

I don't believe it - even some of the people all for the federation idea have TSR linkies on their sites.   I don't think I will be truly at rest till that site falls into an even bigger black hole than it has become.  And that's more a personal thing cos anything I can't get away from makes me phobic regardless of its attributes.

It seems like anyone with a link to TSR is tainted in some way.

I feel like putting rubber gloves on everytime I click a site that affiliates/links to TSR.

In fact, sites that link to any site that is a paysite of any description, lose my respect.

Post a comment in an FA creation, asking for free files.  Quickest way for them to get rid of your account, without trace.

I remember being avid TSR fan, till I found this place. I thought $5 a month not bad. Yeah easy way to get banned, ask for freebies. I think the Coalition of free sites their trying to start might help slow down the TSR monopoly. Otherwise they just buy up tiny sim sites, that have some pay. Its got to be ego for some of them, you know my creations are so good their going to pay me for them.

It's a shame we don't have prior notice of who TSR make FA's.

If I knew who was going to possibly become a FA, I would let them know how much respect they would lose.

@Nouk, you have my utmost respect for having the noddle to tell them to shove it, or whatever your reason was.

I can't help asking the obvious (at least to me). Why does she stay at TSR?


Title: TSR IS A SUCK-ASS SUCKY WEBSITE
Post by: Captain Feathersword on 2007 January 15, 02:32:26
Netseeker had a huge run-in with Thomas over the site changes late last year, I think it was mostly the ratings. She ranted and raved, he deleted heaps of her posts (along with other members' non-complimentary posts) which made her rant even more, then she stormed out, put up a "Netseeker2 RIP" avatar, and swore never to return. Thomas apparetly made an effort as she was back pretty quickly (a couple of weeks?), not sure what he did as she's not an FA and therefore not getting paid, but she gave the appearance of returning willingly. *shrug* It was amusing for awhile and I was hoping some sheep might start to think seeing Thomas act like that, maybe a couple did. He was doing a great job of demonstrating what was wrong with his own site. I really hope he lost some subscribers over it.

Some very good points in her rant, but as Rocket says, why does she stay? Maybe Blue would take her as a TSR defector.

She LOVES TSR soooooooooooo much now. They made her a Select Artist (when her stuff was seriously so crappy -who needs those ugly pictures of fast food in their games) and she was sooooooooooooo honoured so she is back.

I cant believe this! All this for JUST a game. I could see if this was like over 3D content and textures like poser, that is used often proffessionally in advertising, and animation. But for a game? I understand people have a need to get accomplishments and all, but there are other ways you can do that away from the computer, or in the Artistic 3D community.

Unstable and a two-faced wench. What a combination. Reminds me of that one FA given a new position at TSR. Atwa? The creator that makes butt-ugly textures that rival Sugary Sims cheetah outfit. :lol:  A few people told me that Atwa also threw a whiny tantrum about leaving (around the same time Netseeker was) and was made as an FA for PR sake to throw off the suspicion that Tom was hiring outside artists. Little does everyone know that he hopes to one day monopolize the Sims community.  :wink:

Well, the last stunt with the ratings got me to walk. I think it's sad that netseeker2 is back, and as an SA. I was part of the original comment bash that Thomas deleted and I was part of the ensuing BS thread he started after nuking the disapproving comments. More than netseeker left but they didn't put as much flair into it.  :P

And I'm not quite sure how Atwa got FA. And now two new staff positions, one for her and one for Cyclonesue. What's with that? Managing the artists? Mmmm, I'm not sure the artists are what need managing. Maybe some need their heads examined but I can't see how assigning babysitters to them will help.

To think, Thomas will go hunt you down if you throw a big enough fit. Seems like he's under a little manipulation there.  :lol: And fell for it. "It's OK honey. Don't be mad. Don't cry. I'll make it all better. Here's a sucker."

I don't really care for anything on the sims2 recourse. Except Chaz Designs "Britney" Hair. So far I've been only able to find the blond color. If any one has the rest, they should send me the files :D . Any way, I think it's a pretty good value. Only 9 for one month. where as sites with much less stuff like peggy are 10 for one month. And don't get me started on rose. To donate for everything on her site. you would have to pay, if I remember correctly, near $60 dollars. That's outrageous

Fresh-Prince and aikea_guinea have recently been added to the ranks of FA.

I thought TSR was $8.95 for 2 months. But... I'm in the states. Maybe it's different across the globe. Wait a sec, lemme get it... $8.95 for 2 months (auto renew), $23.95 for 6 months, and $42.95 for 12 months. PayPal and VISA/Mastercard accepted. Uh, if anyone cares that is. :P

yeah yeah sure, she didn't show really where he lived.
from her blog;
This at least shows the little space he works at. It´s only a desk beside me and then I have the door behind me.. Poor Per, sitting here, the air was very dry... my eyes and my head felt a bit tired and slow after a couple of hours...

Mmmm, OK. I looked further and read more. So, who's Thomas married to? He's got a wedding ring in the turtle picture. Or, is that a weird Sweden thing because over here in the states the left ring finger is reserved for the engagement/wedding rings.

Is it just me, or does anyone else find her blog and pictures disturbing? I find her disturbing.

Hi again... here comes a picture of Per working by his computer.. this is the only pic I have as I don´t think he wants me to show the other one.. I was again a bit stupid and didn´t look at it properly and he reacted to the flash and it´s not so nice...


Hmmm wonder what the picture is.......I have too vivid of an imagination!!! ahhhh!

Geesh blushing reread all the way back..Well Thomas doesn't look thrilled to have his picture taken. And who is Sumba? Why do I want to laugh about Sumba? she wites have a laugh. Did anyone go to page 2. It shows a sideview of his office...now thats a pretty snazzy looking office for someone struggling to pay their server.

Maybe she offered to stop stalking the staff if they let her be an FA.

So's we have something to think about other than "lil' Tom":
Quote from: "atwa's blog"
So what does this butt-ugly texture mean you ask? I heard that someone said I made butt-ugly texture... well, who cares.. some people must love it as I´ve got 1 million downloads.. and there is always going to be a difference of opinion on what texture you use.. I may like the one I use, but I may also don´t like it, but other´s might like it.. so why should I only use some textures and not others? There are so many downloaders and so many different tastes in colors so I do whatever textures I like or dislike... whatever they say about me....

Millions had giant puffy hair in the 80s- that didn't make it less fucking stupid and "butt-ugly".

Besides, she's just cracked 1,000,000 when she has 1,827 files up. That's not something I'd use for bragging.


Title: TSR IS A SUCK-ASS SUCKY WEBSITE

Erm, I'd say those numbers aren't going to move much. Actually, I'm glad to have her out of the free pool.  :lol:

Yeah, I caught wind of that "to Thomas's satisfaction" part too last night and about wet my pants laughing. And those 18+ images... I had them too. I'm horrible but they just pop in there.

Her blog is like a train wreck. It's awful and you should look away, but you can't... must... continue... to... look... at... garbage. It's given so many good laughs though because I can't believe she thinks all that crap is OK and I can't believe Thomas told her to put those pictures in her blog? It's not really a good image of him. None of them photograph well anyway.

I haven't a clue who Sumba is either. But, she tracked down Thomas, then Per, then Sumba. Mmmm, they do have a stalker on their hands. Perhaps instead of Atwa being on her knees to Thomas, perhaps he was on his begging her to leave him alone, promising FA status if she'd leave.

The whole thing just creeps me out. And are all the FAs that way? I mean, do they all go meet him and chum around? Do they all have shots of him holding soggy turtles? Oh, and really, if Thomas has all those animals, including the rabbit, can you imagine what his place smells like? I mean, litterboxes, stinky fish water, turtle poop, and the rabbit will be the worst. Have any of you smelled a rabbit that is kept inside. Good Lord! His place has got to be on Mike Rowe's blotter for the next episode of Dirty Jobs.

As some may know (but most may not), I've been uploading BoutiqueEmilie's content to MTS2 with the permission that was given on her site to do so.  I've been doing it only a few at a time so as to not spam up the place lol.  Anyhow, I have it stated pretty clearly in her "About Me" and her signature that I'm only doing it on behalf and that I'm not her.

So imagine my surprise when I got this PM this morning:

Quote
Hejsan Emilie,

Hittade ingen kontaktmail till dig, så jag messar dig här istället. Tänkte bara tala om att du får gärna ladda upp dina saker på TSR också. Jag kan sätta dina saker till att alltid vara gratis isf, ge dig Select Artist status samt ett års gratis subscription.

Alternativt så kan du återkomma som FA om du skulle vilja det (då skulle dom verkligen bli "glada" på paysites must be destroyed).

Hör av dig så jag vete - du kan maila mig på [edited by BlueSoup for privacy]


This translates to:

Quote
Hi Emilie,

I didn't find a contact address for you, so I'm sending you a PM instead. I just wanted to tell you that you can upload your things to TSR too. If you want, I can put your things to always be free, give you the status "Select Artist" and one years free subscription.

Alternatively, you can return as a Featured Artist if you want (that would really make them "happy" at paysites must be destroyed)

Contact me so I know - you can email me at[edited]


And I didn't mean to be a tease, I started writing this post right after the last one but I got busy at work. :P

Oh I would say so. Doesn't he have enough talent over there already? I'm sure there are artists in the lower ranks (anything below SA or FA) on there that would enjoy being promoted. I know I see some decent stuff from non-SAs and non-FAs on there and they're still nobodies.

There's a difference though, TSR isn't free, MTS2 is. Does he not think that is a deciding factor for artists?

That's the biggest difference. And lately I've noticed more people saying they aren't going to subscribe to TSR because of all the going-ons over there.

As for how Atwa became an FA...I'm still baffled at that. I only had one of her creations and that was a recolor of one of the Maxis doors, I couldn't stand everything else.


Title: TSR IS A SUCK-ASS SUCKY WEBSITE
Post by: Got_Nerd on 2007 January 19, 19:06:44
Her textures are atrocious...  There is definitely something fishy about her promotion.  And judging by Thomas's general appearance (slightly creepy) I think some favours have definitely been exchanged.


Title: TSR IS A SUCK-ASS SUCKY WEBSITE
Post by: Mac_in_Black on 2007 January 19, 19:37:46
Oh stop it! The nasty 18+ images are back in my head! Noooooooo!!!!

Crap. Now I need to go to therapy.  :lol:

I'm going to agree with the texture issue but there's also in issue about her horrid use of color. Everything glows practically. Really, most of her stuff hurts my eyes. It's like... the stuff we all make fun of for being so bad. And now that sort of thing earns an FA status AND a special staff position at TSR.

I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one creeped out by some of the stuff in those photos. The more I read and the more photos I saw, I just felt like I needed a shower when I was done. I couldn't even keep going because it just felt... wrong. TOO MUCH INFORMATION!

Look at your sorry ass download numbers and you'll see what I mean. Do us all a favor and throw yourself off a cliff to splatter your non-talent brains on the rocks below.

My Blue what a nice little day, start your day out with a message from Thomas. Oh thats right Thomas cant read or was distracted, so he thought he was writing to emilie. Or what if he was playing with you, he knew it was you blue, but pretended it was Emilie. It was kind of like trying to see if he could get a rise out of you. But more than likely he couldnt read.

So Thomas, and staff I hope were giving you ulcers over there.

I was thinking to if this is a open forum after all we got nothing to hide, and EA must monitor its sim fan sites. Maybe EA's legal and copyright department reads this forum for tips for the legal lawsuit they are building against you Thomas, and the rest of your staff. The pictures of you and Atawa was a little to much, you didn't seem to like having your picture taken either. I thank you for adding Atawa to your FA list, if you continue adding artist of similiar merit, you will certainly have reclining subscription rates. I dare you to bring more Atawas into the fold of FA status and prove us wrong. Yes Atawa can really design :shock: you have no sense of taste, you proved it by promoting her. :shock:

Well, TSR already has their stuff. They don't need to promote the little people unless they get restless and threaten to leave.
But I'd expect everyone decent to eventually become FAs, because trying to drive up subscriptions that way has already worked so well!

Who knows, but isn't libel fun? :D Being overreactively nasty about video game content is a real joy, too.


Only because if one pokes a sheep it will certainly bleet. I've got nothing personal against any of the FA's or the paysite owners. I simply detest the utter stupidity they spread freely around the internet.


But d'you have to be so tacky about it? There is a certain finesse involved in making people angry. Like, not outright stating whatever horrible thing they might have done as fact. For one thing, it'll make you look stupid if it isn't true, and for another, it doesn't allow anyone to imagine things even worse, like insinuation does.

As for telling someone to go kill themselves, that makes it look like you have way too much emotional investment in this whole thing and makes you ripe for a "Internets is serious business!" response, followed by being ignored. Sure, telling somone to go kill themselves'll piss people off, but it also tells them that you actually care about the matter and keeps the person you told to die even more stubborn about whatever annoying thing they are doing and more sure that they are in the right.

Remember that the opposite of love isn't hate, it's indifference, and a patronizing tone and an attitude of indifference is what really seeds a target's mind with doubt.

Being a jerk is easy, but being a real bastard takes class.

Is that why I piss so many people off? I'm so indifferent about everything, especially if it's near and dear to someone I don't care for. I've learned giving no response or a level-headed one tends to tip the anger meter more. But not taking a side pisses everyone off that is on one side or the other. Usually I just don't give a rip.

But, all in all, it's still fun to read stuff here.  :P

I think there's rumblings in the ranks now. They can all put on a happy face and be cheery and keep making things for TSR but I'm sure they are starting to question things, even the actions of their mighty ruler.

I'm sure this whole Atwa thing didn't fare well will some of the FAs. What a slap in the face, especially to the good ones that really deserve the title.

If they'd promoted MsBarrows, sgoobyshack (Chris no no no FA stay free) that I could of see. But Atawa? So I can see why all this gossip and speculation. She needs to go back to nursing she cant design. Their (Chris and Ms Barrows)creations worlds above Atawa. But maybe they approached many in the top artist list and they have been turned down. Ms. Barrows she makes a lot of Maxis matching stuff that is downright great. If I was some of them. I'd stop submitting there, and go stay at Free sites 8) . I have not seen Chris add anything for months, I'm assuming he doesn't want to go pay or have TSR make money off of it. I think, disatisfaction among the FAs, and the other artists, will be the best way to take TSR down.

I think they've made some really dumb moves recently and they've gotten away with it with people, but it's starting to add up.

I agree. And I want to add something. A lot of people are finding out about this site and coming over to out side (slowly but surely) I mean if someone where to sign up as TSR (i would be willing to do this  :D ) And post on the boards with this site in their siggy i mean who knows how that could turn out.    I haven't been in the sims community long (only since the sims 2 first came out) But I already know that TSR isn't doing as good as they want everyone to think.  Me and 2 of my other friends once had a sub their. But a lot of people (that i know) canceled their subs so we did to. I mean if that site goes down I do not wanna go down with it  :shock:

I haven't uploaded in a long time over there. To see where the site has gone from the old days really makes me sad.

I have considered trying to get my stuff off there. Really though, I can make new stuff and forget it all.

If EA is going to take up a lawsuit with them it could become a class action and everyone that is a member of TSR might be able to get something in return for TSR burning in hell. Or, EA will make sure we all burn in hell. I'm still over there and active in the Mac forum, because it's really the only good one around for Macs. Guess that makes me fodder.

Yep numbers growing by day Red, and the new server not switched yet. When the booty back up there will be an exodus.

well eventually when your corrupted by your success you become blind as they say. so if I was FA my enthusiasm would be waning. I was looking through retired lists> Betterbesims, Bitsybus, Dee. They were very talented now gone. They evidently saw the light. I think too it gets old for some. I want to do something new. I go through periods I dont play sims. I need a change you know, and do other stuff. Some of these people been there a while, and may want a break from just creating. I mean if Sim Addict, Mustke, Padre, Cashcraft, No frills, Arenaria...all walked they'd be desperate for replacemts. I mean, Arenaria she hasnt created in a while from what I can tell. No frills kind of does more bussiness stuff, and cute original sets. Padre class modern furniture (good recolors too). Mutske has nice little sets too. And Cashcraft she makes the doll house type furniture, even if your not into her stuff, she is one of the few she packs her sets  with lots of fun things). Sim Addict is very versatile to. But like I said before she works for Simchic to. If I was them see someone make bad designs, and get promoted over me who'd been there longer. I'd be be mad, and they give her a position. Nah thats a recipe for disaster!

I wanted to add, the quality at TSR free stuff is low at times. Lots of wallpaper, floors, bad recolors. If the artists walk and they cant get anybody outside TSR they have to fill from bottom ranks, so quality would diminish.

Exactly. That's what I mean. Rumblings in the ranks. FAs have got to be rethinking things.

I could see how you could get burned out from such a high creativity thing. High expectations, probably certain quotas to meet. I know I couldn't be steady as a creator because I work full-time and RL takes its toll and I'll go days or weeks without playing sims. And sometimes I go through a total disinterest phase and go find some book to read or PlayStation game to get into. Then I'll come back. There's no way anyone can continue to pump stuff out at that rate and keep up the quality.

I still see noboy artists over there that do nicer stuff than some FAs, especially Atwa, and they're not promoted yet. Not even to SA. Some people really aspire to be something over there because you can be. If you like to compete and like to be considered the best and bask in the spotlight, it's a good start. Plus, some folks want to share their stuff but don't or can't set up their own site.

Feelings have been hurt all around and I don't see a band-aid in site.

Wonder how they feeel when Sim Addict did that one bedroom series for Simchic, the 1001 Arabian nights, kind of neat based off the expensive velvet pet bed, then turned around and released free that storybook set at MTS2? She then brings it over at TSR releases it with bad recolors. Now I see theres a matching nursery set. But just looking at her recolors, I don't think her heart was in it. Simaddict may be loosing enthusiam or close to burn out.

God, that's got to make you feel like shit. Actually, it does. I've been there at work. It's hard to scrape yourself off the floor and put your heart into it again.

Yeah, it is pretty squishy over at TSR when trying to draw a line between first-rate and second-rate. It was a little cleaner cut before Thomas started promoting anyone just so more stuff would be pay only. I think it's really sad he's gotten so desperate that he's pulling people with icky stuff into the FA pool. To me, having 5 really good FAs and maybe a couple ones that could improve is good. So much trash has been added now that it's hard to see the gems under all that crap. And now there's so much nobody would want to pay for. It drags down the rep of the good FAs.

One of the requirements is regular and steady submissions. At least, that's what Thomas wrote in a thread he made about how FAs become FAs. It was clear as mud but I do remember the steady stream of "good quality" items a plus for getting your foot in the door.

That's not how class action suits work. There's also not much customer protection for buying stolen/bootlegged goods. The little that exists applies to unknowingly purchasing them, which is knocked out via everyone having signed the EULA.
Not to mention you'd be trying to get money out of TSR after EA was through getting their money back. Stones only bleed so much.

Those uploading or downloading from TSR wouldn't be sued, by the way- EA would have to be criminally insane / the RIAA to do that.
The FAs are a separate issue, and would depend entirely on EA's mercy if they ignored the Cease and Desist.

I don't see her on the lists- was she demoted?

Regardless, it's to TSR's advantage to promote people who are popular, but will take very low FA pay. Good CCC usually know what they're worth, and fight harder to get it.
Sure, hey may have crap quality, but it encourages the little people to work harder and not complain as much when one of the headhunted goes directly to FA. It also gives the illusion that there's more bang for your subscription buck...even though you were already getting their content for free.

and we're all supposed to be jumping for joy that they are actually doing something that they said they were going to do originally and then told the FA's to stop doing it?
The original plan as outlined by that fucktard when they switched to FA/RA/SA stuff being pay only was that FA's would be able to set a certain amount of free stuff each WEEK, then it suddenly became one free set (or like 3 free items) a month, and lately there hasnt been any free FA crap.
And everyone in the news thread is praising him for it...oh yes, thank you for doing something you said you were going to do in the first place but yanked away from everyone without a warning...thank you for bringing it back and acting like you're doing us a huge favor. :roll:
The free stuff will probably be older creations that they've been making money off of for 6 months to a year...that all of us already have access to in the booty. I doubt it will be the few high-quality items that they have over there

Some of their artists seem to want to be indistinguishable from each other.  Chaz and Jirka do really similar sim (http://www.thesimsresource.com/downloads/sims2/sims/page3in1538items/) previews and phrase their descriptions the same way.  And now WillStefan has started copying them too.  It doesn't help that they all keep doing the same damn people over and over.

I also just noticed that Dr. Pixel is now a Select Artist, so you can grab his stuff for free.  And we've got a new FA (http://www.thesimsresource.com/news.php?ID=2503).

Of course, when my Paris (ew) is up, it will be free. Which beats a pay Paris (? another one of those ew comments) any day. And my Paris is not patented (?!)

In other news, I'm waiting for another Queen of Evil contest to enter her in.

Everyone noticed how every one of the dominant sim makers (jirka... I think he made one, willstefan, chaz) made Paris?
Everyone made a Paris sim at least once in their lives (http://www.simplystella.com/icons/asd.gif)

Btw, what is exactly a Select Artist?

Yay people, just to let you know, you made it, due to this thread TSR has an artist less. I don't know i anyone of you ever noticed me over there, my nickname is *bliss.* there, and i have been submitting to TSR since 2005, for the incentives in the first place, but as well as i considered the TSR submitting system to be easier than MTS'. I've lurked here for weeks now, and finally decided, I will never upload anything to TSR. I'm almost ashamed that i ever did  :lol: ...
Well, what really bothers me about TSR and I think it hasn't yet been said here or I simply forgot it, sorry if so, is the Kudos System. Why do you get Kudos for thanking people for stuff you didn't even download? Yes, you can even click the *Thank the Artist*-thingy if you aren't able to download the stuff you say thanks for, as it's subscriber content and you are no subscriber.  TSR wants that people thank the artists to be rewarded by Kudos and not for the quality of the downloads? Eww, this site is really making me sick.
As well getting Kudos for commenting on stuff is a horrible idea, I get like 20 new comments per week and more than half of them are just people who were so clever to copy and paste: "Nice!!!" several times ....  :?
Oh and how did Slice get SA?  :x

I must admit I have a TSR-membership. I enjoy myself with posting screenshots there, although I agree a lot of useless people post useless comments just to achieve kudo's.

FA Chazdesigns has a lot of 'nice'-looking stuff, but unfortunately his stuff looks terribly textured when loaded into the game. There are a lot of pretty good designers over there (like Icedmango, Cashcraft) and I enjoy my membership.

I go to TSR and download the free stuff (and of course the FA downloads in the booty), but I'd never pay for a subscription.  I don't believe in paying for a pixelated product.  I think the FAs have some great downloads, it just bothers me that pretty much everything good at the site is pay.   About Chaz's hair - I was always so disappointed when, after waiting for so long for ChazDesign's hair sets to be in the free section, I put them in my game and they looked like crap.  :(  I thought it was something wrong with my computer, but other people commented that they looked bad, too.   The meshes are pretty good, but no one ever seems to make good retextures.  I'd love to see your retextures, flyingpigeon.   :wink:

I love the fact that they don't respond when you don't say something positive about what was created.  While I still had a sub at TSR, I downloaded one of Chaz's hair that had just been released.  Binned it myself (because I never trust it when people say they did it themselves).Opened up bodyshop and checked out the blond recolour and noticed the inside of the hair was jet black, just like the black color.  So of course, I think I'll get a response about it when I left a message in his guest book (around the beginning of Jan) regarding the 'miscoloring'...yeah, no response yet...Talk about quality and customer service :x

Here's something I found amusing ...

my friend sent me this today, I have no idea what forum it came from, but I will ask

http://img162.imageshack.us/img162/2572/nitmf9.png

as you can see in the screen, atwa is now calling herself NitNIt, the reason for this she claims is

Quote
I got this nickname many years ago, my friends in England thought it was easier to say than Anita, so I´m stuck with it and it´s kinda cute


Sorry to burst your bubble Nit, coming from england myself, I know that the name anita, is actually also an english name, and even english people with the worst speech impediments have no trouble pronouncing it.

However the term NIT in an english term to discribe a dumbass, or an idiot, naming her nit twice, would imply she's a double idiot. Nit is also a term to discribe a parasite, an egg of a parasite, or blood sucking louse ..so draw your own conclusions.

a nit is not 'cute' in fact it's quite ugly, although anita has always had problems distinguishing the difference.

Anyway, here I am, and I think I might well have come to stay.


Uh, isn't the motto of TSR something like, "We own your soul!"  Even if she did decide to leave, who says her creations would ever be removed?

I like Enayla's skins quite a bit, but from an artistic appreciation point of view. (She's a fantastic artist.)  Generally in practice, they make sims look way too shiny, and I always have the urge to edit out the beauty marks on some of them.  (I'll stick to the Lin edits of Louis skins, thanks, for my normal simming needs.)


Title: TSR IS A SUCK-ASS SUCKY WEBSITE
Post by: calalily on 2007 March 17, 20:22:40
I love her skins too - and she has in her TOS no paysites - so you would think she is against them.  

However, while she has promised TSR multitudes, she's actually uploaded them to MTS2 and Insim already - so I think it's fine.  She may just want a bit more exposure, and as she writes in her blog - she used to go there a lot and like the forum atmosphere.

I really hope that she doesn't start submitting there exclusively. I bet Thomas is just creaming over this though, and I bet you anything that he's offering her the world, if she were to become an FA.


I am almost certain he is. I know he's done this before and I must say he can be VERY persuasive, and generous with his offers when he really wants someone.
I hope Enayla rises above the temptation of some money from a game; she is a real artist who I assume makes a living at least partially off her art. I'd be very bummed if she became FA, I use her skins (the non fantasy one mostly) almost exclusively.

I have just been over to TSR forums (puke) as I need to check on some info for Seasons ...

AND

noticed that atwa's title is now Artist Manager and my, my...she is promoting it all the way isn't it...using a TSR email addy and putting that banner there as her signature on the forums and the blogs. It makes me sick.  

I wonder if she has a private life away from her TSR Artist Manager Status??!  :roll:


EXACTLY! ...that's what she's been like since she got the position, from day one, she was looking down her nose, making demands and generally telling us all who was the boss in no uncertain terms another word to discribe her is 'condecending' for example: (condecending parts in bold)

Anita (2/5/2007 9:55:36 PM): how are you? i have had a bit of a bad moment again... is it never going to stop..
sherrie_sim (2/5/2007 9:55:50 PM): why what's up?
Anita (2/5/2007 9:57:14 PM): it´s the business with Sue I had during the weekend... I was being nice and PMd her and it all went wrong and I had a  with Thomas and sent him a sarcastic Pm and so on..
Anita (2/5/2007 9:57:48 PM): but we have kissed and mede up so it´s not a problem anymore
sherrie_sim (2/5/2007 9:57:50 PM): what with sue and the weekend ??
Anita (2/5/2007 10:00:09 PM): I asked how she had been doing as I hadn´t heard from her for over a week, Then I also asked her if she had had any of the FAs contacting her for help as I have had several from "My artists" and I also told her I had replied in the FA forum as a member helping another member about stuff I knew.. so she woouldn´t think I took over her territory..
Anita (2/5/2007 10:00:37 PM): but she of course had to missunderstand
sherrie_sim (2/5/2007 10:00:40 PM): sue, as in cyclone?
Anita (2/5/2007 10:00:45 PM): yeah
Anita (2/5/2007 10:01:59 PM): she thought I had answer in her place and I didn´t need that, she had just been away for a couple of days.. to long to explain..
Anita (2/5/2007 10:02:21 PM): anyway, she also said that we should not have been starting our jobs yet.
Anita (2/5/2007 10:04:46 PM): she said thomas never said we should start.. well, he told me that when he announced us it was the start... I also mail the guys, and she said no you shouldn´t do that, Thomas never said so.. *sigh*... they told me to mail them,.. everything went wrong and then she alo said that she asked t about the support system not being ready and we should wait for that. another *sigh*

so basically atwa is manager of SA and sue is manager of FA, anita went to sue and said in a condisending manner "Then I also asked her if she had had any of the FAs contacting her for help as I have had several from "My artists" in other words she was asking sue if she had as many sheep as anita has, when sue tried to put her ego back into perspective, anita got on her im and tried to play the victim (hence the "sighs") and make sue look bad to everyone.

[further down the LONG LONG PM]

Anita (2/5/2007 10:20:29 PM): so he went online and we talked again and this time he had to calm me down... so I felt better. He said I had the bigger responsability and he does have faith in me.. and he also said that he wasn´t angry at me.... for writing like I had...
sherrie_sim (2/5/2007 10:21:25 PM): he seems a nice guy
Anita (2/5/2007 10:22:31 PM): he really is, someone you want to hug all the time... I had done what I was supposed to and Sue doesn´t really know what I do.. I PMd her and said i had talked to him and all was fine on my side.. but she never replied in that

and Sue doesn´t really know what I do.. again hinting that her job is somehow higher than sues...condecending.

Why would TSR need a spy? Anyone can come here and read pretty much everything that goes on here. There are no behind-the-scenes machinations going on like over there.

Atwa... needs to just stfu and go away. I'm already tired of her, and I've never had to deal with her personally. Between her swelled head from her undeserved FA status and the power trip from being an "Artist Manager", I'd love someone to just run her over with a truck. All that nonsense about Sue and how she doesn't know what she's doing is just stupid. It's inconceivable to me that someone as shallow, snotty and untalented as Atwa could even be in the same category as CycloneSue anyway.

I'm starting to feel left out though, Thomas has never asked me to be a FA. I want to be able to tell him to go suck my dick too :(

Liegenschonheit is female and does not actually have a dick or any of the accompanying paraphernalia.

PutanginaMo--if you want resources on how to set up a new sims site, check MySimSite (http://mysimsite.net) or FFSS. This site is more about destroying paysites than setting up free ones.

I really hope so. It really is such an unpleasant surprise to see her there. But I'm wondering what made her join TSR in the first place when she's got her own space in Modthesims2 and insim. Hopefully she'll resist whatever temptations Thomas has to offer.

Post by: Got_Nerd on 2007 March 19, 10:33:17
Well, she hasn't joined it, per se.  Plenty of respectable free artists post there and at MTS2 or their own sites - our Nouk included.

I'd like to think that Enayla is savvy enough not be seduced by FA status.  However, if she was, big things might come of it.  Everyone uses her skins, and if they became pay, it might overthrow the paysite movement once and for all.

Unlikely though.

No she wont become an FA, at the most an SA. Why? Because she uploads to MTS2 and The InSim and its free to download there. The only way they would make her an FA is if she stopped uploading elsewhere - and whens that going to happen?!  :roll:  

Linda (Enayla) is a lovely person and likes sharing her skins with everyone - and she likes MTS2 a lot. Not very good reasons, but you get what I mean.

Basicly, I doubt she'd leave those sites for TSR

PutanginaMo--you have already been given links on stuff like that from several people. if you need more help, ask over there!
free webhosting blows ass anyways and is not ideal for sites with downloads on them, most end up using it temporarily until they can find a good cheap webhost, or they end up closing or reducing the amount of content available.

Anyways, she is already a SA there, they probably made her one when they saw all her skintones and thomas was trying to convince her to start uploading more there and become an FA. It makes me kinda feel bad for people who spend months or years uploading consistently to TSR and never become an SA, considering Enayla's account (which may not even be her) uploaded a handful of wallpapers 2 years ago and is still an SA lol

I looked at the "Enalya" account to see if there was anything new posted-- like, perhaps "okay I'm not really her it was ALL LIES"-- and found that the minisite was gone! Yay! "It must have been a fake that was deleted!", I thought.

But, no luck: the account name was changed to "Enayla", and everything is still there.
I believe this does not bode well!

Well, maybe she won't be posting things exclusively? Oh, well. It's not that important when it comes down to it, but it is a little disappointing.


Title: TSR IS A SUCK-ASS SUCKY WEBSITE
Post by: wicked_one on 2007 March 21, 11:10:36
that is probably because atwa or some other tsr person read the thread and realized we were doubting it was her due to the spelling error and fixed it. Doesnt mean that it's her, and it doesnt mean that if it is her, that she supports tsr since she still hasnt uploaded anything there (after she found mts2/insim i mean)
It's nice to know they are religiously reading this thread though

*eyerolls so hard I get a headache*

I vote that we set this to "ignore" until we actually have some facts to back up the speculation, because to do otherwise feeds someone's desperate need for attention and validation.

Note to identity-smurfing trolls: please do something more useful, such as shutting down your computer and getting laid, reading a book, talking to other humans with your vocal cords not via typing, going for a walk, etc.

I don't know if anyone has read her TSR guestbook, but as of yesterday, there were two entries.  One of which, stated what everyone else is thinking, that she would likely soon be made an FA, given her talent and reputation, and how sad that would be (for the community) if that happened.  Basically, the gist of the message was, please don't go pay.

I checked on it today, wondering if there may have possibly been a reply, or maybe even more entries echoing those statements.  Alas, not only were there no additional entries, but the one mentioned above is now gone.  No, stupid me did not take a screencap.  So, either Enayla deleted the message, or the simpering TSR powers that be, deleted it.

On top of that, another announcement was made today regarding new Select Artists.  Enayla was not on that list, yet she's still listed on the Select Artist page.

All I know, is that I would really be sad if she becomes an FA.

Thats something I find very odd. Shes down as a SA but it wasnt announced...wtf?!

I am awfully suspicious of this.

And if they did make her FA, she doesnt have to stay there. She could just stop uploading to TSR  - got her InSim area and MTS2 account - AND theres the fact that all she's uploaded so far are some walls

I just dont think its her to be honest  :roll:

Hmmm. I really don't think it's her. It's all quite peculiar. I know she's been ill lately, hard to believe she'd put out the effort to post over at TSR.  She doesn't do walls anyway and some of her links led to discontinued pages and the exchange. She hasn't ever posted at the exchange to my knowledge, though other people have posted her stuff there.

Actually she did. I recognized those walls, they're the same ones she made during the early Sim 2 days. In fact, they were her first uploaded CC at MTS2 , but she probably took them down or something since it isn't there anymore, just like the dress she made using Sussi's mesh.

I suppose all will be clarified once she replies CaptainJojoba's PM. *is crossing fingers for good news*

Was this the message in question? It was one on the blog instead of the guestbook.

Oh, dear... I really like your stuff, and I'm glad you've found another outlet to post things on, but I'm still a little saddened that you're going to be posting your new creations here. The things you make are lovely to behold ( ...I hope that doesn't come out sounding creepy! @_@; ), and you're already fairly well-known as far as the Sims2 commnunity goes, so you'll probably be made a featured artist shortly-- and, while you get paid, which is important ( I'm pro-commercialism! Really! People always go like "you're making MONEY? Sell-out!", and I disagree with that ), it -is- disappointing that not as many people will get to use the things you make for the game. Either way, good luck with your creations and thank you for sharing them in the first place. :D


Now, what was this about the dress on Sussi's mesh? I think I've seen that dress on a few of her pictures, and I've been quite enamored of it. (Or is it enamored with it?)

I'm fairly certain it's her, now, though: look at her posts. She posted images in them that are uploaded to her web site, Furiae. Unless this person is a stalker who leaped on the images and posted them at TSR after they were posted at some other site-- before she had made waves as far as the "Sim-community" goes-- then, uh... well...
Actually, that sounds about par for the internet-course.

But still!
Still!

She uploaded 2 dresses a long time ago in MTS2. Same design, one was blue, another maroon. It used Sussi's Victorian: Gibson Girl mesh. And after a bit of "detective tracking", I found the link. I thought she removed them since it didn't turn up in her profile.

I suppose her walls are still somewhere in MTS2 too.

So why would she upload her older, lesser-quality, less well-known stuff there? Less than a month ago, she uploaded an amazing pixie skin set on MTS2 & Insim. Seems to me that as an artist, she'd want to put her best quality up rather than the lowest quality.

Bet her ancient dollface skintone pops up there next.  :roll:

edited rather than double posting:
She has a grand total of 9 forum posts, the first was in Oct 18, 2004; the most recent was April 28, 2005.

So 2 years without activity and now she's getting back over there? No mention of her serious RL illness which she talks about in both her MTS2 and Insim posts?

Could it even be one of the mods at TSR (ATWA, Thomas...) ...

BTW, she may not respond to the PM. She gets thousands and probably ignores most of them just to save her sanity.

....But I dont think its her.

REALLY REALLY dont at all  :x

And some of you guys have metioned her illness and I completely agree - theres no mention of that at all on 'her' blog, and why the feck would she suddenly make all this effort for TSR?!!!

A stalker has made it you reckon?!  :lol: Well anythings possible. But I would have thought a stalker would know how to spell her name

Conceptually, I don't believe in sites that charge you for their content. I do understand donations as a means to keep the site up and running, but not people who charge to actually make money from their content.

I could go into a number of arguments but even after just a cursory glance through this topic, I can see that most of my reasons have been listed. At the core of it, though, part of why I love this game is because of the community. All these people working together to make a better game for everyone. I could charge for my Sims creations but you'll never see me going down that path though the offers haven't exactly been few. Cutting people off from content because they can't shovel out more cash than they already have doesn't seem the least bit fair to me. For the record, I work as a digital artist, I know when to charge money. When? When I'm hired by the people who made a game, wrote a book, directed a movie or worked on a comic book – that's when I have the right to charge them for my time. I won't be making content based on their hard work and then ask other people to pay up without the original creators getting a penny.

Sims 2 isn't a utility program; it can't be compared to Adobe Photoshop or Maya. All of this reminds me of the 'farmers' in the mmorpg communities, people who have forgotten what the game is about to begin with.

So, conceptually, I'm very much against it. Practically, though, I'm guilty of buying custom content – it bugs me, but I've ended up doing it on several occasions from a couple of sites that are hard to match as far as brilliant content goes... and most often, sites that I know from experience are great, who don't charge crazy, undeserved prices for their work and who offers most of it without demanding anything in return. Each to their own, in the end. Like people said, if you don't want to pay for what they sell, then don't. I steer clear of almost all of the sites because I don't find that their content matches their charge.

Never worry about me, though, I'll keep on trucking, charging nothing for my work. That's why I play the game.

Practically, though, I'm guilty of buying custom content – it bugs me, but I've ended up doing it on several occasions from a couple of sites that are hard to match as far as brilliant content goes... and most often, sites that I know from experience are great, who don't charge crazy, undeserved prices for their work and who offers most of it without demanding anything in return. Each to their own, in the end. Like people said, if you don't want to pay for what they sell, then don't. I steer clear of almost all of the sites because I don't find that their content matches their charge.

Never worry about me, though, I'll keep on trucking, charging nothing for my work. That's why I play the game.


That's really great to hear.
I'm also fairly sure it's the real Enayla at TSR. For one, the girl in the avatar looks like her, and it's nicely made with the  "furiae" tag. And the banner with the models, those skins they have, they don't look like any of the ones she had uploaded before, yet they do look like they've been done by her. I know, they're still weak points, but after reading what she just posted about paysites, I'm starting to think she probably joined TSR and uploaded her old stuff just to shut Thomas up :lol:

I just don't think it is her. Especially after reading what she put in that thread. I'm sure Thomas offered her all kinds of money to become an FA already. She's too talented and moral for that. The original things may have been posted by her way back when. Lots of people have been suckered into that, but I don't think the recent post is her.

I could take her banners and do the exact same thing without much trouble at all. Remember until we pointed it out, the user name was "Enalya". I just don't see her as mis-spelling her own name.  :roll:

I didn't believe it either until I visited the page, saw the pictures and this:

Current project:
(http://isc.ibibi.com/images/scaled/w-250h-68-459266.jpg)
Pixie Forests; Blossom Eyes
The blossom eyes are gently pink with softer, pearl-coloured shards - they go with the Pixie Orchid skin.


And her 1st blog entry:

Quote
I have, at long last, decided to post my Skins here.

I make all kinds of things for the game, but only share the eyes and the skins – and there are a good many of them. It just makes me happy to share what I do with the community at large, and have long uploaded my creations at several other sites, but balked at the system here at TSR... but finally gave into the size of the site, and the nice community – I used to hang out in the forums a lot back in the days.

Anyway, I've just finished up my Pixie Multitudes collection and I'm not entirely sure what I'll be up to next. It looks as if it will be another fantasy set, but I'm undecided what, exactly, it will be about.

For the record, for people who don't know my work, the "Pixie skins" aren't actually for pixies. It's just a name I use for a collection of skins that share the same basic muscle tone and also a lot of the same facial features. The naturally coloured ones have little to do with an actual pixie, and a lot of the fantasy skins are a little dark in nature.

Chances are that it will be "Pixie Angelic"... we'll see where fancy takes me.

Anyway, here I am, and I think I might well have come to stay.



What's the verdict now, cap'n?

Post by: redisenchanted on 2007 March 24, 15:16:22
That's not a current project. That's part of her pixie forest series, she released 2 more sets after that: Pixie-demonic and her new pixie-multitude. I'm a pretty obsessive fan of her work. :oops:

Search her name at MTS-2 and you'll find it.

I don't think she's posted pics of her new project yet, but she has mentioned it.

Okay, having read the latest posts here http://forums.sims2community.com/showthread.php?p=814667, it seems it was Enayla on TSR, who thankfully appears to have had a change of heart:

Quote
I am going to post on TSR, but nothing that I'm not already posting on Insimenator or here – I try not to be exclusive anywhere at this point. My main "home" is elsewhere, and that's where I'll lead anyone who wants more of my stuff. I'd have started my own site a while back but I don't want to end up having to ask for donations to keep it up and running, ha ha (I certainly have enough content for a site, but... yeah.)

As for suckering people in... I don't really think we need to take responsibility for other people's actions; they're not mindless sheep that have no will of their own. If they want to pay for the content at TSR (and admittedly, for the cost, there's a whole lot of things they get compared to some sites), it's their own choice. Let's give everyone a bit of credit for having half a brain, hehe. I'm an idiot occasionally (like subscribing to a site I later found out was stealing copyrighted content, shame on me), but I like to think I live and learn and I'm responsible for my own idiocy. There are no sites out there that hypnotise you into agreeing to their terms... some just have that good content and some are just very skilled at selling themselves – making you think that their work is awesome while it's really quite flawed.

Like I said, conceptually I don't like the idea of paysites and I really wish people would quit trying to make money on a game someone else created, but in practice, it's really people's own business what they do with their money... though I sort of wish that EA would step in at some point.

We all do owe it to ourselves to figure out exactly what it is we're paying for.

[edit] Are you guys saying that I can't delete my own uploads from TSR? Hrm, might just go there now and remove them from the submission list before they're posted.


And:

Quote
Huh... well, I withdrew my skins. I still think they were very sweet with me – but I have a policy against posting any of my work (including art) on a site where I'm not in full control of what happens to the content.

So cheers, folks, for helping me against being caught off guard D:


*is happy*

Woot, even better news to hear! So glad she got saved from the evil TSR!

Can't blame her for being in the dark about Thomas and his crew since she's hardly into the "politics". She's just taking the whole Sim stuff as a hobby, as it should be. Besides, she's a real digital artist. She's got lot more things to look into other than Sims.

Seriously, the Sims is the only one game I know of that has caused insanity and grief within the community (let's not count MMORPG though :P). I never expected to find dirty secrets like used jock straps, crazy integrities, drama and paranoia from mods, etc. I bet EA never saw this coming. They're either pulling at their hair in frustration, or laughing at all the drama, wondering how could a harmless game caused so much mess :shock:

I'm just waiting for the next big atrocity to happen.  :roll:

Y'know, there are other things that piss me off with TSR (or 'ToSseR)
apart from the usual stuff like it's a paysite, it treats it artists like crap, it allows bitches like atwat to decide who gets thrown out, they are control freaks, Thomas wears lip liner in his profile, they steal your work, and did I mention the lip liner?

here's some other pet hates I didnt mention earlier:

Artists who wish to remain FREE can still end up having their items as PAY, for example: 'freeartist' decides she is going to be free, she makes a lot of effort by refusing FA status, and only recolours the free meshes, by 'freemeshartist'. she also makes lots, but is careful not to use FA content and thus remains free. Tosser comes along and makes the 'freemeshartist' FA and  locks all the meshes as pay, this means that 'freeartist' has her files incomplete and people have to pay to use the mesh, to make her files work. her lots are also moved to the pay only section so technically her items are now pay, even though when she made them, it was on the understanding that her items would be totally free.
anyone uploading to TSR should think of this before uploading lots or using meshes

Another annoying thing is the excuses they use for being a paysite, we all know that they make a fortune (proof of that is in the pictures of Pers apartment that atwa was mailing round - a huge and expensive apartment with a grand piano, and an expensive price tag) but of course they tell us that the money all goes in bandwidth and disc space. well according to atwa, they are on unlimited bandwidth, but do use a huge amount of disc space which is where all the money is supposed to go (yeah right) but if that were true it would make simple sense to cut the amount of space used by removing all old files that are years old, and all the files that are hosted without permission, but of course Thomas won't do that because he wants the largest sim file database on the net, but he doesn't want to pay for it, so he wants US to pay for HIS ego trip...nice

anyone uploading or subscribing should think of this carefully, do you want to work for free to create content for some greedy bastard to sell? or would you prefer to just subscribe and give the greedy bastard the money direct, he can use this money to keep himself and his staff in luxury houses/appartments and to make his dream of 'the biggest site of old files' come true.  he can also afford to go out of town once a week for a massage ....can you afford that?

I have a subscription to TSR which is about to run out. I am one of those suckers who signed up for a whole year. I downloaded pretty much everything I'd want that first day. Between piss-poor additions to the FA pool (which started with Buntah and have had other lovely highlights in Atma and Lianaa and STP Carly--- let's not forget Juttaponath) and changes that make the site a pool of sewer-shit for non-members, I've had it. Had it. Doesn't help much that, as someone who submitted myself, I had very little support from them when my one big community lot hotel submission went poof. I didn't submit enough to count, apparently, since I value quality above quantity.

I'd no idea the FA's were paid. No way in hell do I want even one penny of mine to go to the likes of Juttaponath and the ginormous ball of suckage she calls her creations.

Glad I found ya'll and your lovely loaded booty.

Post by: sherrie on 2007 April 05, 22:10:40
I know atwa is paid $10 for every 10,000 downloads - (so I doubt she's made over $1 yet)

she had found out from a former FA and former friend that they are paid in 'the hundreds', her greedy little eyes lit up and she started to ass kiss Thomas real fast, she approached him on the subject and he told her that Fa's were not paid that amount, and made her an FA with piss pay to demonstrate that! (LMAO)

In reality there are 4 steps of pay for the FA's at TSR, I do have the amounts somewhere in my mailbox for each 'step' I'll dig them out later and edit this post with them.

EDIT: cant find the 'pay step' mail just now, but heres one from 23rd november, however I think this mail was greatly exaggerated as it was used to start 'the ratings war' rebellion during late nov/december.

Quote
I was also surprised when Julie told me and all this started
when I was in England on holiday and I was so pissed and angry and all
that.. but I calmed down after a couple of weeks.
she told me that Janna and Micheal, they were both
FAs in the beginning and they were paid $5000 per month.. they left TSR
because of some trouble and opened their own site, Sims Connection.
I heard that Dincer & STP Carly were making $200 - $250 per
creation or set  for their sims 1 creations

This is first and foremost a business and Thomas and the guys are business men and have therfor recruited the latest FAs and bribibing them to close their sites and payong them lots of money. FAs are payed for each set, each new mesh, etc... you can be an FA on several levels, from not creating at all to creators like jutta andsophel spurting out set after
set with the same outfits and like jutta, making sets for adults, YA,
teens and elders. I jsut saw she doesn´t make clothes available for both
adult and Young adult . She makes sets for adults seperate and YA
separete... They have also strarted to build and recolroobkects, have you
seen that. Thomas has been at them to make other stuff as
well...

I just thought I'd throw this out here, see if anyone has an answer for this.  Why, exactly, are some of Shoukier's sets still pay?  Yes, once upon a time she was an FA, then became an SA.  All sets released since she became SA are free, however, sets released while she was an FA are still being held hostage.  I was under the impression that if someone "steps down" to SA status (ala Dr. Pixel, Grizzelda)  all their uploads become free.  Am I wrong?  Either way, it irks me immensely, especially since there are a few things I'd like to have.

The reasoning behind this is probably that the person has 'sold' those items to TSR and still recieves money for those.

the payment is from 10 bucks for 10.000 with 250 max, to fixed wages up to 500 dollars, depending on what an artist can do. Maybe more if the artist is worth it.

That's how most women are, lol. They can't keep away if they know someone talks about them.

What most women don't do however, is leave death threats  :oops:

I doubt it, they didnt like me very much since I turned down the SA position, (after the rebellion) it shown Thom-ass I wasn't a TSR puppet. next time, he gave me the SA without asking  :P

Y'know what the most hilarious thing is? - minutes, and I mean MINUTES after I posted the "hey atwa, does this post mean I get another death threat from you " comment, my web counter picked up her ip on my site, guess she was heading straight for the guestbook again! LOL I range banned her ip off the guest book so I guess she was disappointed! for her to have seen this so quickly she must spend more time on here than we do LMAO. its really sad if she finds how ugly we find her and her creations such avid reading! She's always been more than obscessed with this place.



IMAO that is hilarious! Have just looked at it on your site! From 'The Big 'A''.....OMG!!111 'the big a' iz arfter u sherriiee! run!!  :lol:

that's very true, I remember when there were posters here called ann bonny and coconut, (those names are imprinted, she never stopped talking about them) she was glued to this site. when she was at work (she's supposed to be a nurse) she spent every working hour on here while giving up to the minute reports to everyone via the TSR Pm system. Then she was offline for the 20 minutes it took her to walk home, then back on here reporting via msn. sometimes she was up all through the night and took a 'sickie' off work the following day, now thats obsessive!

it worries me when I think of all the commodes she left unemptied.

You are a meanie to poke the Atwa with a pointy stick like that.

My biggest WTF was trying to figure out how ancient Egyptians managed to acquire the technology to use photobooths.

I remember, during Sims 1, a clever creator did a whole series of era-appropriate replacements. There were scrolls instead of computers, and NPC replacements.


Title: TSR IS A SUCK-ASS SUCKY WEBSITE
Post by: calalily on 2007 April 06, 18:26:40
Oooh yes - there was one I remember - Death Eater sims - they had scrolls for computers etc.  VERY clever.  

I always wonder why the Asswa stuff has sand coloured everything - that is soooo boring.  Tutankhamun's mask isn't goddamned sand coloured - they liked their lapis lazuli, their gold, all those yummy colours - where the hell are they?  And not just lime green african knockoffs.

Post by: sherrie on 2007 April 06, 18:52:22
it's called bleeding a theme dry.

She made a couple of items on the egyptian theme, and people thought they were uumm... 'unusual' so that was it, the floodgates were open,  egyptian fridges, dishwashers, love tubs, diving boards, cookers, telephones, burgler and fire alarms...in fact any maxis item you can paint in block sand, black and yellow and paste a scarab on.

I'm so not looking forward to the maxis celebration pack, as I fear she has a egyption sand, black and yellow wedding cake planned.

she does nothing like egyptian and nothing like the FREE and UN-UGLY and credible looking egyptian sets you can get at http://www.tarox4sims2.de

See, I can already think of several existing meshes that could be used that would be more accurate. Or as accurate as The Sims 2 can get without borking the game too much. Need to store food? Forget about making a fridge, make a cabinet that stores food. Dishwashers? Why not wash them in a bucket sink? Toilet? Locate it outside, and make it look like a hole in the ground inside an outhouse (or recommend making a small walled room). Love tubs? Why not make it look like a watering hole? Not that there were that many watering holes in ancient Egypt, but we can pretend to a degree. Or, if you want an inside tub, make it one of the recessed types and construct it of bricks. Diving boards? Are you kidding me? But if you must, a cyprus tree trunk. Cookers? They did have pots, and fire, so work with that. Bonfire meshes exist. Telephones? I'd accept some mysticism, such as a magic mirror or a fake NPC scribe taking a letter. Burglar alarm? An incantation or warning painted in hieroglyphics threatening plague and destruction and venegful Gods, instead. Fire alarms? Consider a bell, or a bucket of sand hung on a wall.

I'm just saying, there are ways to make an attempt to stick within your own theme. And I'm no expert on ancient Egypt, and have probably made a LOLable gaffe, but if that was one of my themes, I'd do some basic research into life during that era and adapt to it.

Photobooth? More likely you'd have some poor schmoe carving your likeness into a wall or brushing it onto a papyrus.

If you want to completely disregard the time era the Sims are geared for, perhaps you need to give up some of the modern conveniences that have no counterparts during your time period.

But that's just me. I'm picky like that.

I'd love to do a Victorian hood eventually, and what I've seen thus far done in that theme has been fairly well done, and anachronisms are handled fairly well. But because my DL folder is already exploding with downloads, I'm trying to resist the urge to start DLing Victoriana like crazy.

Luckily I also kinda like the super mod look, and don't mind decorating Victorian houses with it. That's fairly common where I'm from: retrofitting gorgeous old homes with DSL lines and modern furniture with clean lines. It actually works, because plain, simple furniture tends to highlight the architectural details of the house. A modern house with mod furniture, while fun, can be TOO stark and too bare. Not that this stopped me from making several of those, too.

Gee, AnneBonny, tell us how you REALLY feel. Don't hold back now!

What I do find interesting is that more and more FAs seem to be dropping off...not updating...leaving...asking for changes in status. And there seems to be an elevated sense of paranoia....as though they're about to implode.

Probably wishful thinking on my part, but I fantasize about TSR going up in a flaming ball of gas you can see from space.


Title: TSR IS A SUCK-ASS SUCKY WEBSITE

well thats because they dont have time to create anything with atwa keeping IMing them every minute! ("OMG sherrie posted a clip about me quick...send her a death threat") and ("Holy shit,  AnneBonny's back...I hope she won't mention the cliff")

....but yes, I've noticed that bigtime. I think more and more of the FA's are waking up and smelling the coffee, with a lot of them going free. I'm amazed at how much support we have from former FA's.

its also unusual but very noticable that the better artists are the ones who have left, for all the efforts made by TSR to get decent calibre artists aboard, they have failed miserably, I'd go as far as to say that just in the past couple of months alone, the quality from the FA's has nosedived dramatically as the real talent jumped (and continue to jump) ship and they are left with a self obscessed scarab paster and a handful of drones.

comparing tsr now, to how it was last year, it's pretty clear to see that it's on it's way out, I think thomAss is holding out for TS3 hoping it may give them a subscriber boost like TS2 did.

Yeah, but that's STILL lime green African knockoffs - not the deep rich and often garish colours used by the Egyptians.  She has so many damn things in lime green (which is my least favourite colour) - when does one see any photos of ancient Egyptian lime green?

Those sorts of colours are currently used in other African countries for dresses etc. - very popular colour there - but not in Egypt, even today.

You don't.  But you have people, like her, that see something... be it a culture, a style, whatever... and think, "Wow, this is fantastic.  But... if only they weren't so fond of [insert something here].  Well, I can still enjoy this if I make a few minor changes.

I don't know anything about lime green being particular of any culture, but I know Anita's an idiot, so I'll leave it at that.

As for HP fics, some AU can be very well done. However, stories that completely disregard JK's writing and don't call themselves AU get on my nerves.
Also, I never read any fanfic about the "Golden Trio", AU or not. I prefer reading stuff about characters you don't spend the entire time going, "You're out of character!", "You'd NEVER say that in the books!", "Wait a minute! That didn't happen!", "You're a BOY in the books!" and my personal favourite, "Er, WHO ARE YOU AND WHY ARE YOU IN THIS STORY?!"
For example, Harry gets a new girlfriend who is out of a cartoon show. Don't laugh, it happens.
It's like the complete opposite of that Josie in the Pussycats movie quote: "Why are you here?" "I'm here because I was in the comic book."

Nit wit and Ethiopian style don't go well together. I actually like that color. It doesn't seem too very bright and might look well in a room with pale yellow and green things.

Has anyone noticed that Puresims & birgit are dumping a lot of their stuff over at TSR?  They already have minisites, and I'm sure it's only moments before they achieve FA status.  Seems to me, since the advent of the booty, their income has dwindled considerably.  Could it be, that since realizing less suckers would give them cash for items, they figure they can still get paid via TSR?  The thought is positively nauseating, yet unsurprising.  
And is it just me, or are their file sizes ginormous?  WTF?

saffy and putanginamo are correct. they will throw you out and steal your work, the only way they will delete your work is if you begged them not to, and even then they wont if they can make money out of it. They are very posessive over other peoples work.

EDIT: I just saw your work, they wont delete that, you'll be lucky if they dont start charging people for it.

I hope I haven't given them ideas.
I was actually almost sure they're already doing this...

They could try. but I think the legal concequences would be dire.

 legally they are already on thin ice, I spoke to my sisters neighbour a while ago, who is a solicitor with a big legal firm, and aparantly what they are doing now is illegal and in theory they could be prosecuted by artists who's creations they stole, especially as they are using the stolen items as 'free gifts' to promote products which they charge for. they could be taken to court to remove the stolen items or for a percentage of estimated revenue gained from the advertising with the stolen items. he also looked at their 'disclaimer' and laughed. but he said that any court case would be expensive, but costs could be recovered from tsr. and it would be more advisable to go for removal, although the revenue option is still viable, it depends on how many items and how long they have been there, the money gained from that would be small, and the time limit could be lengthier on that so the initial costs could be higher. He did also mention that anyone from the uk that is on income benifits may be elligable for legal aid, which means they dont pay the court costs, but the money won for court costs from tsr would have to be paid back to legal aid. he did say a lot more but thats all I can remember. He did say to call back if I wish to pusue it, so I might ask a few more questions.

he also said that tsr IS infringing copyright with maxis/EA but it would be solely up to them to take action.

now I should imagine that if he charged for the stolen items, that would make matters worse.

Random participation in an ongoing thread, with thoughts which may not be on topic since I haven't read the previous 30 some odd pages...

I hate TSR.  I wouldn't normally use such a strong word, but my feelings have not changed over the years toward that place so.. there we have it.

I have one creation up there, which I can't get removed... ts1... its called Tia.  It was uploaded six years ago, when the entire website was free.

When they announced the subscription system and started the rotation crap, I posted to the forums about wanting to remove my upload.  I never agreed to let them profit off it.  My post was deleted.  When they implemented the new website, someone created an account with my upload author name... you'd think they would have backed up the old author+email DB huh.

So my upload was in limbo, not associated to any account, not even the new Ren.  The author link pointed directly to my email address.  Sometime later, about a year I think, and after several emails, I managed to get it associated to my account, but still not removed.  I gave up, flipped the site the bird, and started my own site.  And Tia is available at my current site because TSR's policy can kiss my ass.  Their user agreement isn't legal anyway, especially when it concerns BMP files.

Lots of my texture theft issues stem from TSR too, but thats for another thread or something.

This ought to make several SA's happy.  As far as I know, SA's are not asked, they are just given SA status.  FA's are asked (right? Nouk said she was asked and turned it down).  So, if this is true, then all those SA's that were made before this announcement did not agree to anything.  But now they have rules and obligations.

yes its true, SA's are given the position without being asked, in all fairness, I have to admit I WAS ASKED, before xmas, twice, but both times I refused, so after xmas they made me SA anyway.  :roll:

There are a few rules that ATWA was unaware of :

namely
Quote
Of course you can submit your creations elsewhere, or on your own site if you have one, but you should not use TSR as a place to promote other sites and link to them from here.


to which her reply to me at the time was:
Quote
2007-02-07

Like I said it's up to you sherrie, I've spoken to Thomas and he will remove SA status if you go to wicked sims or have anything to do with them... and after what PMBD did to me I dont know why you would want anything to do with them ...are they worth losing your SA status for?



Quote
2007-02-07 He wont remove the minisite.. but the SA status and he just asked if you had gone there as he had seen they were talking about Frances, he asked about a lot of people... but when I went to him, I didn´t know if I could/dared to bring up the pirates, he did it himself..


she even lied about that, my minisite was removed along with my SA status simply because I set up my own website kindly hosted by wicked sims. (she maintained that as blue soup once made a donation to wicked sims that made them part of PMBD)

on that rule they should add : subject to atwa's approval.

Quote
Sherrie, she still is a pirate and helped them go free, and the name is there.
That´s in my eyes, association.. I´m sorry, but this is my opinion as it´s her, if it had been someone else and they hadn´t done the crap in the pirate phorum, I wouldn´t care, but now they have and I wouldn´t go there..
As I said, it´s up to you..

Ya, I'm the rensim Ren.. and I did briefly bitch about it in the file's description didn't I.  About the texture theft part anyway, not the fact I couldn't get it removed from TSR.

Okay so let me make sure I have this right... TSR is banning/closing accounts of people associated with this forum?  But they don't *actually* close down "minisites", only the creator's access to their account.  And if they don't go so far as to ban the account, they've threatened to do so?

For meerly partaking in discussion on a forum?  That's just crazy.  I feel really bad for those of you who have a large amounts of creations there and have been subjected to that kind of treatment.

nearly right, Atwa tells people that TSR will delete an SA account but not the minisite, However they do delete the minisite.  

I wasn't thrown out for taking part in a forum discussion,merely for opening my own site, who's owner recieved a donation from someone who took part in a forum dicussion!


its also worth mentioning that people who have paid subs have also had their account deleted with NO REFUND, because Thomass SUSPECTED they have been on here or SFV. in fact I read it somewhere in the tossers TOS that they will delete a paid account with no notice if they SUSPECT you are involved in file sharing.

interesting word 'SUSPECT'- Thats basically saying that TSR has the right to hold a trial, be the judge and the jury and hand out a penilty fine.

Sorry I only mean to offend short little money grabbing gnomes with bad highlights and lip liner!

On the subject of quality over quantity, TSR do very little to encourage that, when people get banned for posting anything but 'wow your creations are great' or OMG OMG OMG I LOVE your stuff!!! Hugs, kisses rah rah'

 if you post any of the above on any creation you are awarded kudos which you can cash in for free days, mini sites, prize draws and so on, but if your post is truthful like 'atwa is your colour palette broken?' or 'atwa, are your creations so poor you have to post pictures of wild plants on your mini site, its a plant get over it we have all seen one' you would then be banned.

result is a few hundered atwa-esqe morons believing their creations are ooober great because they recieved a few copy and pasted niceities off the kudo hunters. they then go on to churn out several items of shit per day in the strong belief that if atwa can become FA anyone can.

So, TSR sucks. Apparently, even the TSR FAs know that by now. My favourite creators there haven't updated in ages. Shannanigan, Cyclonesue and Windkeeper are gone. Linegud and Solfal do not update that often. The only lustworthy thing there nowadays are Aikea_Guinea's things. When you look at the calendar nowadays, there is nothing but Atwa's dreadful recolours and more sims2sisters leftovers.

So, does anyone know the reason for Windkeeper's disappearance? Cyclonesue apparently had some computer problems, but she seems to have disappeared from the face of the earth. What's going on with her?

And yeah, Anita is probably one of the easiest names to say. I'd have shorted it to Nita or Annie though...


Well, FWIW, I've noticed... The English tend to shorten names to the first syllable -- when they're just shortening names, that is ("Sab" instead of Sabrina, "Mad" instead of Madeline, "Rod" instead of Roderick, "Brit" instead of Brittany/Britney, FE).  If her English "friends" are shortening her name to "NitNit," then they may have something else in mind...

Quote from: "PutanginaMo"
Im an avid submitter at TSR,


I submitted four custom alien sims almost two years ago (July and September 2005), and they were still "Pending."  I removed them about three hours ago, after starting reading this thread.

FWIW, the family name is "Rennie" (as in Michael Rennie, of "The Day the Earth Stood Still), and the Sims were "Gort" (father), "Klaatu" (mother), "Barada" (teen daughter) and "Nikto" (Child son); of course, they were named after the famous phrase, "Gort!  Klaatu barada nikto!"  (also from "The Day the Earth Stood Still")

These sims were unlike anything you may have seen before -- and they'd been "pending" for nearly two years on TSR.  I still have them on a backup DVD somewhere, and I wll eventually upload then them here (if there's a demand for them).  They were basically a custom skintone made by me, plus custom faces I made in Bodyshop.  In my game, they wore CC clothes I'd downloaded, but the versions I uploaded to TSR wore regular default Maxis clothes.

Quote from: "sherrie_sim"
anyone uploading or subscribing should think of this carefully, do you want to work for free to create content for some greedy bastard to sell? or would you prefer to just subscribe and give the greedy bastard the money direct, he can use this money to keep himself and his staff in luxury houses/appartments and to make his dream of 'the biggest site of old files' come true.  he can also afford to go out of town once a week for a massage ....can you afford that?


I HAVE thought of that -- which is why I've withdrawn the submissions I've made (which thankfully were never approved in TWO YEARS).

Also, I wish *I* could afford a massage...  Anyone want to give me one?  I might be very... erm...  THANKFUL (as in the kind of thankful Atwa was to Thomas...)  ^_~

she told me that Janna and Micheal, they were both

because of some trouble and opened their own site, Sims Connection.
I heard that Dincer & STP Carly were making $200 - $250 per

Who the hell is he? I didn't know about him until I read this post. And his creations aren't that beautiful. After I read about him here, I went back to TSR and searched for him. His profile description made me laugh so much that I couldn't breathe for a moment. I was like " who do you think you are you bastard?"
His Profile:
Quote
My name is Sheyza James, I live in North Carolina. I started making and posting content for the
Sims 2 on MTS2, and hope to leave that site (because they have billions of restrictions... you
can't play God... jeeze)
and begin posting here on TSR. My older creations are still available at
MTS2 (modthesims2.com) for download. I do take requests in the following categories: clothing,
make-up, skin tones, eyes, walls and floors. My policies are simple, you may include any of my
files in any upload you may enter, just make sure to credit me somewhere and post a link to the
original file so they may view the page. I'm a pretty nice guy. Definately not a complete
anti-social ass like a lot of other creators.
I am different, I actually answer requests and talk
to people.
I wanted to save this last statement for the end of my profile: I am not gay. :lol:  People
assume because I make such "pretty things" that I am a kink and I'm not. So if any dudes are
lookin for love, sorry man, you won't find it here. Exit only. :D I am not against gays though. My
brother is gay. Oh well, if you have any questions, requests, comments, or plainly are just bored
to tears and need to talk to someone, just send me an email at rythmgitr@aol.com. Call me whatever
you want. Sheyza, James, Shey, Mr. Anderson, SJ, King James, I could really care less. Call me
poop head if you want to. I hope to hear from you soon. Thanx. -Sheyza James

He is very very irritating...have you seen the rest of his journal?! He is such a drama whore...as for moving to TSR, wow I did not see that coming (sarcasm).

Leaving MTS2 for TSR says something about him....gah the lemming. And I reckon you are right that he is leaving for that because he didnt get his 'fame', when he first started out he had this little 'mission' written on his profile...that he wanted to have a million downloads, a thousand thanks, and so on so furth. I think thats when I decided I didnt like him...just seemed so arrogant >.<

I doubt he will become an FA...he isnt that good....but if he does then woopdido, straight into the booty for you! Mwah ha ha ha..

None of his stuff interests me.  I thought most of it was ugly.  May not be "run of the mill", but neither is neon-green transparent furniture.  Personally, I like plain things--most of my Sims wear clothes from Fanseelamb and the Fanseefem project.  Originality doesn't really matter to me--quality does.

I thought he was a girl at first.  And yeah, the lady doth protest too much about not being gay.

What the hell is a "kink"?!

Two other points to make here..

1)  Just because your brother (and if you're friends with some) is a homosexual, it doesn't mean you approve of it so don't use your brother as a meat shield.

2)  Are you so full of yourself that you think that every gay guy wants you?

Kink is a term used to refer to unconventional sexual practices such as bondage, domination and submission, and sadomasochism (known collectively as BDSM), and sexual fetishism.

Kink sounds like quite an offensive term to me, which means that in the text that missangelica just quoted he contradicts himself.... :roll:

Most of his stuff's not bad, I've certainly seen worse, it's not the type of stuff that appeals to me though. As for denying his gayness he's just doing it to get the drama and attention he craves.

That debate is straight-up weird.  It's as if he's striving to be fair, and yet his replies seem worded to coach the right responses out of people.  Almost stilted, which makes sense, since he's clearly trying to make some sort of point.  (And going about it poorly, since I'm not sure *what*.)

For every submission that is published you earn 50 kudos, up to a maximum of 500 per day. You can then use those kudos to buy a free day once per month, or anything else from our exciting kudos shop. For every 10.000 subscriber downloads you also get a free day, each time you reach that number. How many downloads you need to reach a new incentive day can be found in your account/incentives.


I think it's funny the way some people bitch about MTS2 kind of sort of having some sort of quality control. I'm not claiming that I get it or that I haven't seen some really crappy stuff, but at least there's not direct encouragement to submit as much crap as possible.

But isn't Atwa the one who decides who gets promoted nowadays? Or at least she claims she is.  
So, with him being the super-hetero he claims he is, it would still work out.  :roll:

I believe elmazz is two girls, either sisters or friends. It says in their TSR profile. I think one does certain stuff and the other takes the rest and between them both they cover some CC real estate.

Here is their "About We" at TSR.

About Me: We are 2 girls from Sweden, Sandra & Funda, and we love creating for the Sims 2. We don't play the game it self anymore, but get our kick from creating instead. We still try to make creations we
ourselves would have liked to use if we played the game, and in real life too for that matter. So for example, all the cosmetics are actually things we have (or would like to have) in real life. We love beautiful things, so you can expect almost anything from us. Not even we know what kind of
things we'll create in the future. But as we create, we learn new things, and that effects our style and our ideas. So we hope that you, like we, welcome changes. Happy simming! //Sandra & Funda

Thanks, Minolia, for that link. The replies these girls give are hilarious.  "You don't create and we do so you suck a lot, shut up! Don't even look at our creations or comment on them ever, in fact we're taking our toys and going home to TSR because you are all mean and pathetic and have no lives."

Also, telling someone "try getting an actual REAL life" after saying, "if you still want to critisize me in the future, make sure you have created at least 10 sets yourself first."  seems silly, since making 10 sets of anything would take time out of your actual REAL life.

Edit: About Sheyza, does this person do ANYTHING other than whine about stupid shit? Besides the new site whine there is, "I hate this new keyboard, it makes me emo. Maybe I'll write a poem about it and then take pictures of myself, looking feminine. Email me, because I have so many fans!"

Her, Birgit and the chick from PureSims are all friends.  Use alot of 3d model with higher Polys and charge your for them.  Then I think they decided together to make the trip to TSR, because they weren't getting enough of a cut from donations at their own sites anymore.  Believe they are the unholy trinity Hebcubus refers too.

Sorry for not being explicit. While her site is Sims2Studio, she's got "Marilu" plastered all over her file names. The only good thing about that is that they're easy to find when you have to delete them.

Her stuff totally borked my game...NOT worth even the effort to download form the booty.

And Sherry, you got it in one. Wanna know what's sad? The very talented and VERY free Piggis is friends with them...you'd think she'd get that they're twats.

I noticed steffor & derMarcel posting a few sets as well.  During a moment of doobage induced clarity, I could actually see Thomass freaking the fuck out over the snowball effect of paysite hatred, and begging/bribing everyone he can think of to join the (real) cult of TSR.  A cult that offers nothing, by the way, except retina burns.


Title: TSR IS A SUCK-ASS SUCKY WEBSITE
Post by: gmaidekamido on 2007 June 03, 09:14:42
Now to be fair those special, special members of the TSR cult who are FA's do get something besides retina burn - $20 per 10,000 downloads, I think it is. Of course they don't count the downloads from the booty, so soon enough they'll get nothing!

I really hope that steffor will not join TSR. I'm hoping she is uploading there for publicity's sake

She makes original things, everything at Avalon and free and Steffor and OrangeMittens make sure the objects are low poly. And they allow the redistribution of their meshes with recolours (I think).

I love Avalon.

I LOVE our new subtitle.

I imagine this scene happening (translated into English from the original Swedish)....


Thomas sits at his computer, alternately pounding his fists and wailing. Atwa walks into the room.

Atwa: Darling, what's wrong?
Thomas: The site that must not be named. And don't call me darling.
Atwa: All right, sweetcheeks. But what site? Why can't you name it?
Thomas: It IS the site that must not be named! That's the name of the site!
Atwa: What site?
Thomas: The site that must not be named!
Atwa: Sweetiepie, if you won't tell me the name of the site, how can I help?
Thomas: Dammit, bitch, the site is CALLED the site that must not be named.

Thomas points to the screen. Atwa reads the title; confused, she gets on her knees.

Atwa: it's okay, loverwuvver pookiekins, if they won't tell you the name of the site, then they're bastards.
Thomas (rolling backwards in his chair): They ARE bastards.

Thomas weeps.

Atwa waits for him to sit back so she can get to his fly.

Thomas weeps loudly.

Here's a reason to drink more rum:

(Edited to change "German bitches" to "Teutonic Twats", as Gwendolyne reminded me SHE is a German bitch and Marilu/Birgit/Sasilla give a bad name to German bitches.)


Are there any German creators left in the community?  I just checked, and both Steffor & derMarcel are German.  And with the way they're uploading, it's only a matter of moments before they're FA's too.  Birgit & Sasilla both made entries in their guestbooks, welcoming them to the wonder of TSR.  Wishing "many downloads" which we all know translates to "much cash".  Perhaps it's a German cult  :twisted:
Well, Solander is German too, eh?  He's already done the TSR thing.  Can't see him going back.

How many FAs do they have now? Its a riduculus amount...hardly any of them are orginally talented ( as in you look at a creation and go ' WOW that is obviously by - - - ')....TSR is just trying to make more and more money, by tempting people with new shiney FAs. Which makes me think that the booty, and other file sharing sites, have had a major effect on their income....

You know, it wouldn't hurt anything if we took time to thank 4-5 good free creators specifically, especially those who aren't currently actively involved (or maybe even aware of?) the paysite v. freesite scufflings.

You know.

"Dear [creator],

I wanted to take a minute to thank you for [item(s)]. I enjoy them regularly, and [it/they] make [my Sim(s) look attractive / my 'hoods like great / me enjoy my game so much more / (compliment here)].

I've noticed that a lot of free creators are getting [rude comments / ugly mail / complaints] lately, and I may be a little paranoid, but it seems like a lot of this harassment started when EA began issuing statements that they did not support paysites and might consider legal options against paysite owners. I am hoping that talented content creators like you are not discouraged, because your contribution(s) are appreciated. I would hate to see less free content online, just because some nice folks like you have received a lot of nasty mail.

I wanted to let you know that I appreciate your hard work and generosity, and I hope that if you have received or do eventually receive any unpleasant mail, that you will remember that I'm not the only one who has enjoyed and used your creations to make my game more fun.

Thank you!!

[Your name here]
[links to relevant threads on PMBD]"

Know what I mean, guys?

We bitch about how it may be paysite supporters bugging the nicest freesite people, but are we taking the time to thank these folks, to balance out the kind of feedback they may be getting?

Sure, some folks liek Pes don't want thanks or feedback (BAAA! BAAAA!), but some folks appreciate a kind word and encouragement.

It can't hurt, and it will feel nice to share some positivity.

I admit I don't always hit the "Thanks!" buttons on sites, so my praise for freesite people may not ever get back to them directly. Me telling a bunch of folks downloading something from my paltry little stash of Sims that "the green shirt outfit you like so much and asked me about? It's from Decorgal, she does a lot of nice things" may never get back to Decorgal herself.

So I'm including myself in the ranks of people who could do a little better about showing appreciation. It may be free, thanks may not be required, but it is a nice gesture. If pro-paysite people ARE targeting freesite folks and being insulting in order to discourage them, maybe a little encouragement is the right medicine for the problem.

Of course, we may be giving pro-paysite people far too much credit. You have to admit it shows some smarts and sneakiness to deliberately plan a "piss them off, make them quit" campaign like we're describing. It doesn't seem like their style. Too slow, not guaranteed to give a result, and far too little DRAMA involved.

Lorelei's got the right idea.

The free site owners I've taken time to thank on guestbooks or email have always been SOOO gracious and happy to gab a bit. I think they get so much CRAPmail, the nice emails make them feel good about what they do. I've become friends with Moune, Kate, and Kimberly at Sunni Sims because of these kinds of emails.

Added later, after watching parts of TSR come up only to crash again:

Is it wrong to fantasize about the TSR servers blowing up? Smoke coming out of the disk drives....flames shooting out the back....dripping masses of melted metal containing the precious - and rather expensive - pixels...

...with NO backup.

Is that drream so wrong? Am I bad person to want his system to fail on a massive scale? To watch an evil empire crumble into five bucks' worth of scrap metal?

Taking the time to thank free creators is definitely something I've been doing more of lately.  It can only help and it's a nice thing to do.  I must say that in my dreams where I can actually create free CC that people actually use, I would be fiercely hissed off at the whiff of paysite peeps pooping in my territory, and only try harder to do better and stay free.  But I'm a stubborn old woman.

Hecubus - I also dream of TSR crashing and burning, not even so much because they're a paysite, but because I hate the layout so much.

Lorelie's got the right idea. I think it's in defiantly in everyone's interest to encourage and help foster an environment where free sites can flourish. Maybe we could post a letter of support on this forum, get enough signatures then send them off to either free sites, or individuals involved with free sites. Something along the lines of "We've got your back .... the Pirates". Provided of course that Pescado goes in for a Mickey Rooney approach.

Also, if it hasn't already been done, it may not hurt to include a well put together email about EA's latest stand on the pay site issue. And encourage them to post it where their visitors can easily see it. A sort of, get the information out there campaign. A lot of regular pay site users who also frequent the free sites may not even be aware of the whole issue. It just might make them think twice.

Another thing to consider is that it's quite possible TSR has been using the EA stand to recruit creators who for years have been assuming that anything they create for the sims is they're soul property. EA's recent position must have come as a shock to these folks. How else to explain the recent of influx of creative types into the TSR Factory. Letting these people know we're on their side wouldn't hurt.  

In any contest, even one as seemingly minor as free vs pay, you never underestimate an opponent.  Even if they are complete morons. Complete morons can do considerable damage.

Yeah, I don't know that a form letter would help so much - there's lots of form letter stuff at Insim - "nice job" - and seeing its on every thread, well it's kind of background noise.

I suggest though, that for the time devoted to all the other stuff, either click the Thanks button, or put something nice, and heartfelt in the guestbook - I think that that will mean a lot more - particularly if you don't forget to do it after the parsim message has faded a bit.

*nods* Indeed.

I have a stupidly high post count at MTS2 because I thank so many people...if I download it, or it catches my eye, then I will post a thanks or click thanks.

And when I go on a downloading spree at a site, I leave a comment in their GB (if they have one).  :D

Its disenheartening though how the number of people who say thank you to a creator get outweighed by the amount who say ZOMG I HATE IT... :?

Steffor seems to be updating quite often at TSR, so I'm guessing it is only a matter of time before they "unexpectedly" announce her as the next SA/FA.
 :cry:

I always click thanks on MTS2. If somebody has taken the time to create something and upload it, I have the time to click the thanks button as well.

I know I should post thanks on people's guestbooks and forums as well, but I don't do it that often, mainly because I am lazy. :(

Man, I hope not.  I love her stuff.  She makes interesting, exotic little things.

But FWIW, I think she's just spreading herself around...she just uploaded a new set to Avalon, and she sometimes sends gifts to the Simbella crew.  I remember when the Birgit/BR drama happened, she was still creating meshes for free while Birgit was trying to defend being a shady bitch.  People *can* upload to TSR without having ill intentions, although admittedly I don't see why.

Thanking free site owners is something I don't do enough.  Thanks for the reminder.

I don't think TSR is cowed one tiny bit by EA's statement.  I would bet they have some kind of "exclusive" deal with each other.  That's one of the reasons I doubt EA would move on paysites anytime soon.

You know what gives me nightmares?  The thought that TSR will scoop up all the good (and lousy) creators in the community and become a sims2 download monopoly. :x

I don't think you have to worry about that at all - Nouk, Berg, Ren (of Rensim), Inge, Pescado, and many more are all here railing against paysites - if they were going to be absorbed into the mega TSR blob it would have happened long ago.

Not to mention that Enayla didn't seem so thrilled while their "all your contents are belong to us" policy, and I'm sure she's not the only one.

The only great free creator that may eventually go pay (and I think mostly just to spite us here, and because he seems to feel great resentment that people want him to create at all - even if they don't badger him) is beosboxboy - he regularly posts at exnem and tsr, both work and comments.  As marvine doesn't seem to feel the same way - or at least gave no indication that she does - I don't think she'll follow.

I have a theory that creators who either still play the game, or at least have some sort of use for their items (Deception Pass, in aikea's case), tend to put out higher-quality and more useful content than those who don't play the game but just churn out stuff.  It makes a lot of sense - people who genuinely enjoy playing will create items that work with their game experience, which will mirror the desires of more players, and make sure the items fit well into the game.  People who churn out items for the sake of cash, on the other hand, aren't motivated by a satisfactory gameplay experience = they just want it to pass the sniff test, so people will open their wallets.

That's definitely not universal, but it is a trend I've noticed.  The creators who *are* in it for the money will be more attracted to TSR, which guarantees them a cut.  Sentiment against paysites is growing, and that has to be cutting into smaller sites' bottom line.

I don't really like playing Sims 2, because it becomes predictable. I like the designing, testing and sharing of stuff. So that's what I use it for. Like drawing, paining, etc.
Sometimes I play the game but I usually abandon families within the first generation. Then they become testobjects for hair and clothing and whatever I decide to create. So there's a third type or creator too! :lol:

It's good to hear from an actual HQ creator on that account!  And I'm glad you enjoy doing it.  I still think the defining moment comes when a creator decides to charge money, because that's when they start the long slide down to doin' it for the mortgage/chilluns to feed, and game functionality goes by the wayside.  TSR is the biggest example of that mentality.

It said something along the lines of the files having different "Date Modified" entries for every time it was downloaded, so they know exactly who downloaded it because no two files have the same "Date Modified" entry.

Or something.

"This is is actually in major violation of EA Games copyright laws. In simple terms, what they mean is that a site cannot not charge money for Sims content that was used by EA tools or free for the person to make. If they ask for donations and don't charge money for the downloads, that's perfectly legal. The staff members are not making the content themselves, so therefore they are running an illegal operation and should be shutdown effective immediately."

Desperate like a fox.  

Thomas should focus more energy on finding good creators for his site.  We'll always find a way to share his TSR files regardless of his trickery or him banning members.  That will only result in him spending more time on trickery and banned members finding a way back in, if they really wanted back in.  Not that hard, we've already had someone do it who was just banned a few weeks ago.  The funny thing is they bought the sub with the money TSR refunded them after banning them for their old sub.  

The only thing he will end up losing in the long run is more money, from people who would have subbed regardless of their associating with PMBD or SFV.  His chances would be better ignoring Pescado and hoping that Pes gets bored TSR, then thinking he will somehow thwart filesharing.

More skilled than the artists who actually work for EA? I call bullshit on that! The artists at EA would have to have advanced knowledge of and be able to produce texturing (photo and paint), modelling (character and environment), rigging, lighting, concept, game design, testing (and on, and on) in very limited amounts of time (days and days?, more like the next morning) and be able to apply and change those skills as needed for new projects (because no one will be working on just the Sims permanently). I hope someone called that girl a moron, I'm afraid it can't be me because that place gives me a rash.

Don't worry about it since it doesn't appear to work anyway, people are still being banned somehow.  We've told SIH, and we'll help her to do anything she chooses to deal with the situation at her board.  However, it might not be the safest choice to share TSR files now.  

The fact is that if we share files we are going to have to deal with trickery and bannings from sites.  The fact is TSR has more resources to spend on said trickery.

If it were me I would completely ditch my sub, don't pay for TSR's trickery, and then download at the booty.  They are quite on top of TSR booty anyhow.  It's really the only way we will get the best of them, not if people stop being banned, but if people stop paying them.

I am really discouraged about the number of people joining the TSR ranks lately.  It doesn't matter that many of them are awful creators, it's the principle of the thing.  It's becoming like Starbucks, except that Starbucks is sort of good, especially the green iced tea.

I wonder if the rats are deserting a sinking ship over at MTS.  Bad publicity thanks to Lyric Lee et al?  Something is going on over there--the quality of stuff has gotten largely worse (not all of it, but a lot of it) and certainly sparser lately.  It also seems as if Delphy doesn't care too much anymore (although who could blame him?)

Even if TSR were better, and Thomas less rude, and the whole site were free, I would hate for there to be One Big Website.  :cry:

Things have been a bit quiet at MTS2 lately but I'd like to think it may partially be due to the fact that it's exam season at the moment - I know it's stopped me for one from having the free time to make stuff. But not to watse precious revision time here, I blame pescado!

I eventually got around to the controversy with the sims and mentioned TSR and he reminded me " the courts won't enforce an illegal contract"... because if the creators don't own the "rights" to their creations then they don't have any rights to sell them either.

So if the "creators" don't own their works, then TSR has no recourse if a "creator" decides to break the contract and put their works somewhere else... Has this ever happened? What was TSR's reaction?

This is an interesting angle... the teacher mentioned that the only legal contract that TSR could enter into would be with EA... :twisted:

So i'm curious what the contract is with "artist" and TSR...

Thanks for the linky Mac...

Scratch that is an interesting way to look at it...would be great if some of your questions were answered.

About this contract - is working for TSR as an FA or SA an actual job? Do they pay taxes? If they dont then its part of the informal sector of work and is illegal...also means that, for example, you wont be able to put it on your CV or get a reference from TSR  :wink: Which actually screws the FA/SA....

SA's don't get paid as far as I know.  Sherrie would know better as she is a former SA.  They just get the benefits mentioned in the page Mac in black linked to.  It looks like more of a status thing than a business thing.  I also think they can post their creations at other places.  I know for certain that I have seen one or two SA's post both at TSR and MTS2.  

I have no idea about contracts and FA's.  I can only extrapolate from what we already know.  They do get paid, but I don't know if they "sell" their creations to TSR.  It almost seems like a comission thing if they are getting paid per 10,000 subscriber downloads.  Once EA legal comes out with a statement, if they ever do so, that will clear it all up.

It is and isn't "legal" if for any reason they were caught they could claim to be an independent contractor or Self Employed (if they are here in the US) and claim that they made less than $600.00 per year. This would mean though that they would have to have some sort of print out to prove the dollar amount was $600.00 or less OR Thomass gives them a 1099-Misc. showing the same with the box checked for $600.00 or less.  

The tax thing to me is a sticky situation though. When we were thinking about investing in a business in another country we had to look at the tax laws for money earned in another country. For some countries, you actually get a tax break for your investment and the money earned is not taxes as high because you are considered "helping" the country to develop. Sweden was not on the "under developed" country list though. It was mostly Eastern European, former Soviet Block countries for Europe.

It would, for those in the US, boil down to how much an FA/SA actually makes in a year. A good rule of thumb though to be on the safe side, for those FAs/SAs in the US to keep in mind is that any money earned is taxable/reportable if you are over a certain age (whether it be a "legal" job or not). Now whether they claim it as "self employed" or "Independent contractor" is up to them, but they should be claiming one or the other.  You still have to "claim" it, it is just if it is $600.00 or less it is not "taxable income."

As far as a resume, I doubt any employer would look at the time they were "self employed" or an Independent contractor" for TSR in very high regard. On that point you are spot on. :D

Post by: Mac_in_Black on 2007 June 10, 14:47:47
Bigtruckgirl is right. Here in the US they still have to claim it. Somehow. And no employer over here will give a rat's ass if they worked for TSR. They'll be like, "Who the fuck is TSR? And what the fuck are sims?"

Unfortunately I haven't been able to track down FA info similar to the SA stuff I found. I don't think Thomas has been as "open" with their "rules".

I do think they can upload other places. Some do to MTS2 and some have their own sites like NeptuneSuzy.

I have some FA friends, I suppose I could pick their brains. I wonder if each FA enters into a different contract with TSR.

I don't think these artist realize what kind of trouble they could get in if the authorities started doing some investigating of the whole TSR business... If the artist were to actually claim an income to pay taxes then they are admitting that they are "selling" a product that they don't have the rights to sell... if they don't claim the income for taxes then they could get in trouble for tax evasion... That's what they did in the '30's to get some of the mobsters... i think it was Al Capone that went to jail for tax evasion.

If i was a FA i'd jump ship as soon as possible before EA started getting involved... if EA did get involved and published all the names of the artist, i'm sure all the governments involved would want their share of taxes owed... Goods and services taxes as well as income taxes...

Maybe a couple of quick questions to some of the governments involved would cause a little more attention in TSR's direction  :twisted:

What if Thomas's wife were to suddenly want out of the marriage and wanted a piece of TSR, Thomas could take the money and run and the "artist" couldn't do a thing about it because they have an illegal contract with him... I'm sure Thomas knows how legal/illegal the contracts are....

Is someone a little snippy in one of these posts?

Original post:

I was going to post this in TSR Info & Discussions, but I guess I'm not allowed to post there.
Is there a particular reason why mesh creators are not required to post poly counts with their meshes? It just seems logical that they should, they created it, therefor they should know the counts. If I don't see the counts listed, I assume one of two things, either the creator is just lazy, or they don't want to advertise their meshes are high poly. I've already downloaded a few meshes that had no count listed, and when I took the time to check for myself, the counts were rediculously high. And so I deleted them. Not because my pc can't handle them (it certainly can), I just don't see the need for a gazillion poly mesh. So now my personal rule is, no counts listed, no download from me. I don't have the time or the inclination to check every mesh out there myself, when it would have taken the creator all of a few seconds to include that info.
I don't understand why this is not a requirement, it is at other sites, and it's the responsible thing to do.


FA response:

Quote
I would not like the poly count to be required on meshes. I will not post the poly count unless I feel~ like posting the poly count. Why I will not post the poly count is because most don't understand the poly count. I am so~ betting you are one of them. I usually don't like extra rules and requirement, as I find real life is full of enough rules and requirements. I would not like your idea of rules and requirements imposed into creating, by number watchers such as yourselves, who have spent way too much time reading about things they only hope that they understand.
Just like you have personal rules . . . I have personal rules
'Responsible thing to do' . . . is insulting to my intelligence and laughable to me. At what point in your life did you decide it is a 'responsible' thing to post poly count. Again, I would bet that it is just something that you have read (you left out moral obligation). Especially since you say you have never had a problem with your computer playing the game. What game are you playing. Does Maxis post poly count on their high poly things. No, they do not. Are you sure your computer can play their game. All of the 'free extras' they have on their site to download are huge in poly  
You are too funny  Should there be poly count police? We could call the phone police and ask them  

I should start a thread on cost of objects within the Sim game. And the 'responsibility' of posting the cost of a Sim object. What about all the poor Sim. We need cheaper Sim objects for the poor Sims!

So basically you'se saying, you don't post a poly count because you don't like it, and/or don't feel like it. Fair enough, at least you're honest. True, many don't understand the poly counts, however, many do. Me, one of them? Perhaps you'd like to bet your paycheck on that.

Ah, a rebel, good for you! Unfortunately, it is true, real life is full of rules and regulations. And in real life, when one receives a paycheck for work performed, rules and requirements are generally part of the deal.
Oh, and while there are several things I could only hope to understand, poly counts are not one of them.

When you get paid for the things in my download folder, you are responsible for those things. It's unfortunate that you find it insulting to your intelligence and laughable. It hints toward the work ethic you posess, and you obviously have no problem with that, posting for all to see. Interesting though, your views in relation to your paying customers.

Correct, I haven't had a problem with my game, because I choose not to have a 96,000 poly counter in my game. And I assumed we were all playing the same game ... or am I here for the sparkling conversation? I am also well aware of Maxis polycounts, along with their extras. I have managed to open up that there newfangled program called um, SimPE? I even figured out how to obtain poly counts! In the end, I know my pc can play the game, mighty well, I might add. Not everyone is so fortunate.

There would be far less items for downloaders.
If a creator leaves TSR simply because they have to take an extra 5 seconds, well that's just sad. Besides, there already are plenty of reasons to leave TSR, without that being a driving force. And yes, getting the poly count takes like 5 seconds. The horror!

I think I missed your point here.
If a creator is getting paid because I downloaded something, they should be responsible for the things they create. That includes informing downloaders that an object is high, or overly high poly, and could potentially bork your game.

Funny, I had been under the impression that the TSR forums were so pleasant and friendly. Then again, we all know what bubbles beneath pleasant and friendly. I'm surprised that FA's are encouraged to be so condescending to their customers. Doesn't look too good. That could maybe be one reason why subscriptions are on the decline. Ah, come on, we all know the other reason! Aaargh!

I cannot believe the attitude of Dot, or Atwa for agreeing, in response to a simple request for poly counts. Seems to me I had to agree to the forum rules when I joined; are FA's exempt from these? One included respect for fellow members, and Dot's blatant insults towards ladygrainne are appalling. I'm amazed at the way you treat your "fans". And Dot, if most don't understand the poly count, then they will ignore it, and those that understand it (because I'm sure there are more than you would believe), will be grateful. If your items are not high poly, that is.


Well said *passes rum* :D

I noticed on your profile that you haven't had a mesh set published...this information, surely, comes from experience somewhere, though. And what are these "plenty of reasons to leave
TSR?" Care to share?


But LaidyGrainne's point was not how long it takes to check a mesh set in SimPe. The point was that the information should be supplied by the mesh creator, i.e. seller, not the downloader, i.e. purchaser. For example, when I had a sub here at TSR, I downloaded some meshes that did not have the polycount listed, but after checking the polycount with my SimPe, came to the conclusion that the polycount was unacceptably high for my computer and deleted those meshes. Had I been informed of the polycount beforehand, I would not have downloaded those meshes in the first place.

Now, the following analogy is a bit clumsy, but bear with me.
Not supplying the polycounts is bit like if a company (=TSR) that was  manufacturing certain kind of food (=meshes) refused to include the ingredients (=polycount) on the packaging. All fine and dandy, except that some people (=slower computers) are allergic to certain ingredients (=cannot handle the high poly count). Now, ingesting ingredients that you are allergic to can be dangerous, or even lethal. Having too high polycount objects on a sims lot can actually break you video card, or at least it will crash your game.

And MTS2, which is the biggest Sims2 fansite, requires the creators to add the poly/vertex count info in their downloads. I have not heard anyone complain about it, or threatening to leave because of this requirement. Quite the contrary, many people, including myself, see this as customer service and appreciate it. When I download something from MTS2, I can be certain that my game will not crash because of the high poly count.

Polycounts are not rocket science. Yes, many people do not care about them. They do not need to. But after my old video card started crashing my game because of high poly objects, I suddenly developed a keen interest in the poly/vertex counts. What is the use of having a nice looking high poly mesh in your game, if you cannot use it, because it will crash your game?

Actually, LadyGrainne and LivingDeadGirl were asking a question that I thought was valid and relevant and one I had thought about many times. The answers they received were, if not rude, at least condescending. Had I been either one of them, I would have felt insulted too. I am an adult and quite capable of thinking on my own. The fact that I cannot mesh does not make mine or anyone else's question or opinion less valid.

And since the TSR subscribers are, indeed, paying for the meshes, it would be common courtesy to inform the downloader if the mesh they are about to download might actually break their computer.

Except....well....I'm not surprised. A few thoughts cross my mind:

1. Calling a request for information "an insult to my intelligence" is like calling a wig an insult to my hair.

2. It is clear these people don't go outside their litle community....a quick survey of any number of sites (Parsimonious, SIMcredible, MTS2) shows a concern for polys. Forums are FULL of questions about them.

3. If this Pooh person didn't know FAs were paid, wonder how many more don't know. That's important information for members to know.

4. Alia, your food analogy was perfect.

I'd like to add, since we know they read this - if you are making an item with a new mesh, then why don't you make note of the poly/vertices count _while_ meshing.  Then you don't have to reopen anything.

Logic, obviously some people have it in very short supply over there.

what should be interesting, if they do start requiring poly counts, is seeing Sasilla and Birgit's.  Don't they generally make high poly items?

I don't see what the big deal is in adding them.  I also don't understand why Dot's response was so over the top.  It seemed a bit of an overreaction to a simple question.

Here are the current vote results. I voted for poly counts. I haven't had crashing issues, but I purposely keep high PC items out of my game.

View Poll Results: Should we require poly count information on new meshes?  
Yes

No    2 7.41%  
Don't care    4 14.81%  
Voters: 27. You have already voted on this poll.

Dot's post is absolutely infuriating and Atwa's agreement of it is just precious.. makes me want to puke.  ~_~

Poly counts should be required regardless how many understand it or not.  Those that do not can learn and those that do can help avoid potential damage on their games.

Alia, as I recall, Sasilla called us "silly assholes" and suggested Maxis polys were in the tens of thousands.

Over the top, indeed. Like bombing Canada because the Blue Jays beat the Yankees.

Oh for the love of Mike!  I'm usually all about seeing both sides of an argument, but I can't see a rational reason not to post poly counts unless you're worried that yours are too high and your dl counts (and pay?) will go down. And saying that they take too long to get is silly.  When you are working on the mesh in your program or putting it in SimPe you can easily get a count and note it.

That response by Dot was just absurd.  What does having the info hurt anyone?  If they don't understand it, they'll just ignore it or look it up or ,worst case scenario, not dl something that really is okay because they don't understand it (and who cares?).  If you really think people will freak out post the poly count of a comparable Maxis object for comparison.

I've grown to heartily dislike TSR over the past year, but if this an indication of the culture over there, I could begin to despise it .

Actually, there is a pretty good discussion going on at the link alia gave, since the other one got deleted.

Post by: FreakyBooty on 2007 June 13, 05:11:02
Well, I'm peversely happy.  It seems two things were accomplished by that thread.  The addition of the poll, and the favor being for listing poly counts.  We'll see if they act upon it.  And, of course, the fantastical way in which DOT stated her opinion.  I never saw that coming, and was incensed when I read it, but I'm glad she displayed herself in such a way.  I couldn't wait to repost that, because I knew the thread wasn't going to last.  PMBD was my first choice, as I knew it was pokeable & laughable.  S2C for the idiots/misinformed who still like to defend TSR, or don't see what's wrong with it.

Personally, I'm of the opinion that DOT's response was at the behest of Atwa.  Atwa was addressed by Living Dead Girl & myself, over a week prior to DOT's post, asking for her input, in light of her Non-FA Artist Manager position  O.o  The next time she posts, is fifteen minutes after DOT  :roll:

I went there with an honest question.  I'll admit, the post was triggered by Sasilia's response at SFV to Alia questioning poly counts of Sasilia's meshes.  That "silly assholes" comment really grated on me.  And knowing that some recent FA "aquirements" were really poser conversion meshers, this topic would be oh so relevant and ... interesting.  I didn't really see myself as being confrontational, so I don't know what the hell happened.  I went from angry (pet peeve: condescending people), to highly amused (the brough-ha-ha that ensued, and the mindless display of the sheep.)  Eh, I went & spent time with the hubby after 404's post, so I missed all the rest  :cry:  Thanks for those posts 404 & alia, and whoever else's posts I missed, and thanks for the rum as well.  Ha, I saved the page and noticed, at the moment I saved it, Steve Bonham was reading the thread.

I went and voted in the poll on poly-count.  I don't actually download much from there, but if bad quality doesn't get people, then maybe poly-counts would get some of them.  It just might be me being paranoid, but for some reason I have a feeling some of them are going to lie about the poly-counts if it isn't going to be checked.  And even if it was checked, who's to say that the person checking it won't just pass it along because they're a friend or something?  Sigh, TSR.  I hate you.

The snotty answer (DOT's) might be indicative of a growing sense of frustration over at the TSR . Their once smug and secure position within the community is under attack on several fronts. So you might consider getting in the lifeboat early DOT,  atwa's ego alone will probably take up half of it.

There might be people who do lie about the poly counts, but I think there will be enough people that check them once they download something.  I know I will be checking.  Then they can just report the file.

It is better to remember that there are innocent parties at TSR, such as users who go nowhere else and have no idea there is anything wrong with paying for content.

It is best to educate, and enlighten, rather than being a trollmonkey /  posting banfodder.

It is the illegal selling of content we hate, not the individuals at the site... though some of those, who know darn well they are being thieves and not truly part of the community, are not especially loved.

Oh the LULZ!

I googled Thomass and found this gem (http://www.aftonbladet.se/it/0009/04/spelnatverk.html): an online article from a Swedish newspaper, dated September 4, 2000.

Yes, it's in Swedish unfortunately, but the headline tells us that Thomass and his brother Johan wish to become "center of the gaming universe".

Johan is not only Thomass' brother, but also his twin.

Well, they say that there's always one good, and one evil...

(http://www.aftonbladet.se/it/0009/04/spel180.jpg)
In this case, which one of them do you think is the latter?

BTW, the article wasn't about TSR, but apparently some gaming site that Thomass and his brother used to run. I guess it didn't bring them enough money for it's gone. One of the users quoted in the article is: SURPRISE! - Steve Bonham, 29, Nottingham, England!!!!1111

Well, at least Aikea's creations are top quality, unlike so many other creators there who only upload stuff with the intention getting paid.

Wasn't it Sim2Sisters who had decent stuff until they went to TSR, and after that the quality of their uploads has fluctuated wildly?

Ah OK, I was thinking maybe they screwed her over and it might piss her off enough to leave. I'm not a far of her stuff, but I know a lot of people here are and would love to see her tell TSR to shove it. I was just hoping this might be the moment.  :lol:

If it is the same set as featured today, they are subscriber only. OR at least if you filter by "subscriber" they show up as one of the 6 or so sets available. They have the little "file and red x" on them if you are not a subscriber.

Is this the same set? The second one on the second row? If so, she might have thought they would keep their word, but it looks like you have to have a sub to get them...

Um OHJ has been an SA for a while. And his site shows up as bandwith exceeded pretty often so looks like he either isn't making money to pay the bill or he's spending it elsewhere

My main thing with TSR is that no one should have to go to extreme lengths to remove their own work.  Editing and removing your own creations should have been an option at TSR from day one.  I don't do much creating myself but I do have some lots and skins up on TSR and I wish I had the option to remove them if I chose.  I would rather have the lots exclusively up on my own site or another site where I can have more control over the display pictures etc.  I also wish I'd known when I uploaded them what I know now about how TSR operates.

I used to have a subscription but it was just too hard to find what I wanted without wading through so much that I didn't want that it wasn't worth it.  I'm not using cc right now because my main computer died and my laptop had a small hard drive with no room for sims creations (missing my custom content a lot but at least i can play) but I realize that what I was using was things from free sites other than a few tsr things.

It'll be interesting to see what happens to TSR if EA does something about pay sites.  Maybe it would help them move into some sort of positive direction but then again I think they may be too far gone to change.

I sent 2 tickets in, I sent the first one to: Rules and Policies -
Terms of Service on 05/25/2007. I recieved no reply

so I sent another one to Game Features and Information -
Items and Inventory, on  05/30/2007, it was a copy and paste of my last letter, and they replied that they would pass my complaint  on, and confirmed that the site (tsr) was in breach of the EULA.  I have a  screenshot of my full reply on my site. The person that replied and passed on my complaint was GM Spada, and it was wherever he passed it to that got my creations removed.

If you wish, you may quote my reply from GM spada, which was sent to me 06/01/2007 10:37 AM  and quote my personal ticket number I got that reply on  070530-005824 and ask him personally to forward your complaint to the same place where he forwarded mine, also be sure to emphasize the fact that these files are hosted against your wishes, on a paysite, and that they were created using EA tools, ie: bodyshop, homecrafter and are pakaged using  their .package/.sims2pack format .

Hope this helps  :D

Bullocks, I saw them there approximately two weeks ago.

EDIT to your EDIT: You miss the point. TSR is a paysite. It is illegal according to the EULA. She doesn't want to be associated with illegal crap. How is this wrong? As for EA not caring about one person's stuff, you may be right. However, getting repeated complaints from creators regarding the practices of a paysite that EA (I could kiss GM Spada) has already deemed a violator makes them all the more likely to realize what an issue said site is and sue their collective asses. Which makes me giggle.

Sherry, your latest example accusing Milano for copying your works was just a recent example, and I'm pretty sure this is just another example. You need to get out of your little hemisphere and realize the world doesn't float around you.

So, it's your word against mine - are you more trustworthy because you are pirates? Noone here has any evidence to back either story up, and given Sherrie's history of making things up I'm pretty much certain this is just another fabricated story to suit her drama whore needs.

'paysites fan' is living proof that we are getting somewhere with EA.

 If EA didnt force TSR to take my files down, then why are they so shit scared that someone will write a complaint, that they have to come here to persuade us not too? my advice to quote the ticket number of my reply seems to have ruffled a few feathers I see   :D

Why do you hide your name paysitesfan? got something to hide sweetie?


Title: TSR IS A SUCK-ASS SUCKY WEBSITE
Post by: Marhis on 2007 June 18, 21:24:29
Paysitesfan, I agree about stories that always have two faces.

The point is that what I have seen going on in this forum through many months (and not only regarding Sherrie) is a very mature and responsible approach of that matters.

As an example, the thread about Sherrie and Milano stuff (the same you're referring to): Sherrie had a legitimate doubt and asked for others' opinions. Many of us  went in to check and try to determine where the truth is.
This task was accomplished with the most logical and appropriate tools we have: direct comparison of the products and asking for further explainations by people directly responsible (Liana).

Result was pro-Milano, and Sherrie declared her mistake clearly, end of the story.
If this is and example of drama, then I would pay real bucks for having all drama queens and their supporters acting this way.

To me it seems that if there's someone here jumping to conclusions with no real knowledge of what is going on here, at large, that's you, not me.

WHY would Sherrie say "writing EA in this and that way and talking to this particular GM works" if it doesn't? The logic fails me. What, to pretend EA is on our side? That ship has sailed, no need to pretend, there's oodles of proof that they are.

The fact alone that Sherrie has been fighting TSR for a long long time and all of a sudden her items are removed reveals more to me than some scared little paysite supporter.

The problem is of paysites', not ours, after all.

It's they that have to find an EA official statement which claims that "Game content and materials are not entirely copyright Electronic Arts Inc. and its licensors. Some Rights Reserved."
Nothing more, nothing less.
Any other rephrasing or words juggling is just that: bullshit.

Did I not already request that you dry up and blow away? You are such a stupid fucker, makes me wonder if you are a sock puppet with someone's hand up your ass forcing you to put up posts like this. We DO have minds of our own here, and we've made them up that you are full of shit... Now, would you like to wipe your ass before leaving or should we just cram it up between your virtual shoulder blades? Sherrie made a mistake and she admitted it in full view of the forum members, so get the saddle horn out of your ass and shut up. She, unlike paysite owners, has been open and up front with everyone here. She, unlike the assholes who make CC for money, is actually a decent person with some compassion and humility. She is human. She fucked up and admitted it and it blew over. BFD. I don't know what your problem is, but I really think you need to go hide underneath your bridge before someone decides to play billy goat's gruff with you and you get punted into hell. I would, but I don't like to play with shit... Am I always this rude? No. But you just piss me off.

Yes we do realise that there are two sides to every story  :) Believe it or not but not everyone here immediately sees things from one point of view, it is important to see both to understand a situation.

Regarding Sherrie - no we did not all jump on the bandwagon. If you read that thread then you can see that many people did not think that they were stolen, as the dresses were only similar, and so it could be a case of using the same reference photo. And she did apologise...which I think is very important  :D

Does Thomas actually do anything at TSR other than promote the Atwas of the world to FA and sit back and watch the money roll in?  It seems like all the grunt work is done by his underlings.  It seems when people have problems, that it's Tug or one Thomas's other servants who help.

Thomas HAS to do some work.  In which company does the president not do the least bit of work? He would probably make all the big decisions like who to promote and who to demote, who to ban, major management decisions and etc. If he doesn't do any work, we would be complaining about some other paysite manager instead of Thomas, right?

On what to call the troll, I think we can call it a half-troll. It has half a brain at the most, I'll say. I could have elaborated at his stance, but I don't wanna be as badly treated as the half-troll was.  :oops:  :oops:

It would make TSR an even bigger and more fun target, and also mean that only a few people would ever have to pay for one sub to get everything in the booty. It would be a win for us, really.

So sure, Thomas, keep swallowing up the paysite people. Just leave the free site people the fuck alone.

I was happy to just sit and laugh over the threads, but seriously, I checked back today at a thread on TSR and I just had to register here and have a good rant. someone was complaining on their forums about how TSR calls recolours 'free' when you gotta cough up for the mesh. So i helpfully posted up the EULA and asked did they ever consider that they were violating by charging for content. Check out their dumbarse reply:
Quote
You're not paying to use the stuff (CC), you're paying to keep the site open.

WTF?!

I still don't understand the whole "quantity over quality" thing that people apparently believe.

TSR makes a lot.  There's information on it in various threads.

And I know there are recolours of meshes that are not free.  Recolours (free) of Confide's meshes (pay) comes to mind.

I wish I could remember because one person said they only offered them like 2000. All I do know for sure, is that some people are paid and some are just screwed over.

That sounds like an awesome life.  I can make shitty clothes--I bet the hours are spent waiting for Body Shop to load, and the days are spent posting on the TSR forum about how tough my life is in every single thread, responding to people who post in my guestbook, and posting in other people's guestbooks as well.

I can do that.  I can totally do that.

Well most of the FA's are paid by TSR it's done on a number of downloads basis and Thomas has offered many sites cash to shut down and come to TSR, sims 2 sisters being one that comes to mind. He also offered Nouk money to shut down her site and join TSR but she's a goddess and told him to get stuffed. 8)  

If you want more details do a search for payment and TSR, it's been discussed here quite a few times.

yeah i was sucked in by this myself.

Firstly theres the kudos score, if you get 5000 points you can get 24hours worth of access to the paid <sarcasm>(oops sorry, i mean DONATION)</sarcasm> database. the easiest way to get lots of kudos is to submit CC or stories.

second, if you get 10k SUBSCRIBER downloads (ie paid members DLing your CC), then you get 3000 points or 24hours of access to the paid stuff.

mind you ive almost enough for a subscriber day, if theres anything you want me to get for the booty..?

Deleting the EULA quote is really disturbing.  What reason would they have to delete something packaged in everyone's sims 2 game that everyone should have seen and read?  I'd say deleting a direct quote from the EULA is a direct admission of guilt.  If they were in the right why would they be bothered by someone posting something from the EULA. They know they are wrong.  And the parts about donations make me giggle.  It's not a donation if I can't access the content without paying it.

I've also decided to stop uploading to TSR and begin using my own webspace. I already pay around 30 a year for a domain name and low bandwidth hosting package so why not use it?  I can upgrade my webhosting package easy if I started using more than the 20gbs a month bandwidth I get.  It will all have to wait until my new computer gets here though.

So i helpfully posted up the EULA and asked did they ever consider that they were violating by charging for content. Check out their dumbarse reply:

Talk about the blind leading the visually challenged (and who wouldn't be after accidentally stumbling across atwat's amazing technicolour crap)  :roll: "At any time of the day ... there's so many downloads ..." - not at the moment there ain't kiddo! And I agree with Lilith that deleting the post with the EULA quoted smacks of them knowing that what they're doing is illegal. Could that be more ammo to use in future e-mails to EA about their activities?

Even though I can't make diddly squat, and wouldn't upload it to TSR if I could, what exactly is the nature of the contract/agreement between them and FAs? I wouldn't have thought that TSR sends the FAs anything to sign, so in that case there's no legally binding contract and therefore the FAs can post their stuff anywhere else that they choose. If a creator did that and TSR found out, what would they do - sue them? I'd love to be a fly on the wall at the court case when in fact TSR would be the ones in the shit because of the laws they're breaking  :lol:

Hi, I'm just sending a quick PM to some of my readers before I get banned - and I'm pretty sure I WILL get banned in the next week or so. Even if I'm not, I no longer wish to be part of a site whose owner exploits its members, treats them like fools and censors them for speaking the truth, all the while rolling in $1000s of profit - and make no mistake, TSR is a(n illegal) profit-generating site, even if mr bigwig thomas cant handle anyone pointing out the truth. But anyway that's not the point of my message :)
i wish i'd been more vitriolic. im tempted to reregister just to throw one last stone at thomas. and what the hell are EA playing at? perhaps thomas pays em to shut up.

The Game Master-  What did you mean to accomplish by being banned?  Did it turn any SA's or FA's to the good side or point anyone to the booty and light?  Or did you just end looking like another "crazy stealer troll"?  (probably what the locals of TSR thought of you)

I wonder how much of this is detrimental to the cause like that 12 year old that was spamming the TSR forum.  They're just going to be even more resistant.  It also makes me think of that email to the pink animal print lady..  

What happened to tact?  Does anyone really want someone in their face, in their home essentially, telling them what they're doing is wrong?  This would include TSR as "home" too since most do not stray from a couple sites they visit everyday.  They probably have no idea what's going on here.

How can something be less obtrusive and viewable to the largest audience? Even after EA's statements against paysites, I don't think many have a clue. I would bet that a large portion of the community doesn't use any sims message boards, let alone follow all this politics.

Athan's downloads are still up. I just downloaded the one file about 10 minutes ago. Just go to TSR and in the main search box type in "ahthan". Then scroll through the downloads until you find something by him or something that links to one of his meshes. I found a skin that linked to his mesh and clicked on the "Get Mesh at TSR" link. Took me right to his mesh to download.

If you don't want to go through all that trouble, though, I uploaded his file to Mediafire:

So that's how you remove your files, eh? Just replace them with a TSR Sucks  tee! I guess this means that if you're a creator, try not to get banned, at least not until you... "fix" your uploads. If you do get banned, you can't touch them, can you? I don't remember if being banned means you aren't even able to log in or if it just restricts your posting abilities. I'm fairly certain it doesn't let you log in, though.
Hah, I wonder how long it'll take them to notice. And then I even wonder if they'll even bother deleting it or if they'll be too amazed by the quality in comparison to the other tees that site has available for download.

1) Go to the support page of TSR
2) Click the "I lost me password buuton"
3) Check ur mail tfor you password
4) Go and spread how crap thier site is.
5) Promote this site of course.

How i love a secured site!

anyway.. What will happen to the people who recolor my meshes?
Thier files will be obsolete then?

Do you think poeople in tsr forums talk about me? or did they heard the news about me?

I wasnt spamming anyone. i didnt just send messages to random members, it was a PM to those (8 ppl, some of which i spoke to quite often anyway) who read and liked the stories i posted up there, i was letting them know i was relocating (i didnt include this in the quote) and wanted to let them know WHY i was.

and i wasnt TRYING to get myself banned. i really didnt expect to get banned merely for quoting a message from EA on my profile. censorship yes, but not a ban. i was expecting the ban for asking thomas to answer a few honest questions, which i never got to do, because he banned me first. he's still a snivelling coward.

it would make no difference if they did. mr 'please dont ruin my little business empire' thomas would censor it anyway.

Every single move of a creator or by just someone else in TSR that is linked on talking about paysites, PMBD, EA EULA etc etc. is a big No NO to Thomass.
Thomass is really really sensitive on that part., just to earn money...and more money

So...every now and then while working on TSR's booty, I see a set I particularly like...or I see the name of a set that holds promise.

Such is the case with the new modernbathset from newly crowned FA, Steffor.

But when I opened the picture, I noticed something...odd..on the left side:

(http://paysites.mustbedestroyed.org/booty/tsr/steffor/modernglambath.jpg)

Now...most of this set is just lovely - and if I didn't already have a bunch of modern bathrooms, I might choose this one.

But WHAT THE FUCK is a cafe table and chairs doing in a BATHROOM???

Is that so people can have drinks while watching someone's especially entertaining personal hygiene? Does anyone actually sit down and have a cup of coffee IN the bathroom between the morning shit and brushing their teeth? And, since it's Sims...does this mean you have to have a no-modesty hack? Huh..maybe this is for those times that your visitors follow you into the bathroom....at least they have somewhere to go...

Yeah, I'm not diggin' it.

And it doesn't even match.

Title: my two cents on the TSR debacle.
Post by: chemistrycourtney on 2007 June 29, 23:57:02
So, I have decided that now is a good time for me to chuck in my two cents about The Sims Resource.  I have registered myself at the sims resource.  Apparently in October of 2006, I signed up for the Sims Resource.  For the challenge lots.  I can't remember where I got that recommendation.  I remember downloading the challenge lots now, and playing that "Skip Roper" guy all the way through.  I remember starting a few of the other challenges, and then getting increasingly frustrated when the freaking counter thingee wouldn't read that I'd completed that stupid aspect of the challenge.  I've theoretically said "thank you" for an outfit as early as March of 2007.  Can't recall what the heck I've said thank you for.  Perusing my history of downloads, I have downloaded 49 things from TSR in the time that I've been a member.  Out of those 49 things, 2 of them are still in my game.  Out of the 2, one of them is being used, but I'm displeased by it.  I downloaded that henley tube sock sleepwear outfit thingee, that I saw in a story on the sims2 exchange.  Once In my game I realized that it wasn't actually very good.  The reason it looked pretty good in the story was the person's graphics card wasn't all that good.  I've also noted that I have 200 something "Kudos" so only a bajillion more and I'll get something good!  

Basically, I haven't had any reason to think ill of the stuff at TSR, i didn't think.  I now realize, that I've secretly harbored feelings of animosity towards the site since 2006, when I first discovered it.  Yeah, that place is pretty much worthless.  And that's my 2 cents worth.

Post by: Quinctia on 2007 June 30, 06:48:11
Well, you know in ritsy establishments, I have found the strangest bits of furniture in the bathrooms.  Cushy chairs, bitty end tables, maybe a vanity area.  Fancy restaurants, country clubs, that sort of thing.

And at my last college, in one of the buildings, there'd be a sort of "waiting" area with a mirror and a couple of COUCHES preceding the normal stalls, sinks, and sanitary napkin & tampon dispenser one expects to find in a ladies' room.  They weren't particularly nice couches (imagine vinyl car interior material for the cushions), but it was a three floor building and there was a bathroom like that on every floor.


Title: TSR IS A SUCK-ASS SUCKY WEBSITE
Post by: liegenschonheit on 2007 June 30, 07:31:55
A lounge area in a ladies room is not uncommon, actually. It used to be a place that women could retreat to when she needed to touch up her makeup, fix an undergarment, or even just relax away from the menfolk in peace. It's a very victorian notion that women need a place to retire when the excitement of being in public gets overwhelming. Now women usually use them to sit around and gossip in, or hide from bad dates.

I used to wonder why there was a lone chair in the public restroom where I worked, but realized that there's quite a few people - the elderly, those with physical impairments or conditions, nursing mothers - who made use of it.

I'm a little more bothered that the toilet is right next to the bathtub. In a really small bathroom, I could understand, but there is plenty of room in that bathroom to move the toilet farther away. Unless, of course, you prefer the soothing aroma of feces to aromatic candles while relaxing in the bath. Green Living on a new level.

ROFL exactly! just what happens when I use that cute one-tile desk (I can't remember where it comes from right now) in my children sims's bedrooms. During parties people go all their way upstairs with only one purpose in mind, to eat their friggin cake just there, and they end up clogging the bedroom and complaining because there's already somebody at the desk - busy eating the cake, of course :lol:

Thoma$$ and Atwat are the most prominent fuckwits of the site and so all animosity gets directed at them for the most part. While all the animosity gets directed at just a couple of people there, rest assured that it actually applies to ALL of them equally. I'm sure if the others were more vocal/prominent they'd be singled out for a bashing here too.

What I wrote, in the advent that it gets deleted..

Quote from: "missangelica"
Paysites are illegal.  Someone finally got the brilliant idea to ask EA about it and now we have several confirmations on it.  The tide has changed from simply tolerating paysites.  They're detrimental to our community and now we have something to push them out for good as they should have not been accepted in the first place.  I don't know if you are any other fandom communities but it is not tolerated anywhere else.  You do not take free tools and free help and tell those same people to pay for what they helped you make.  You do not tell someone to pay for your hobby.  
 
Now, you may ask for donations without withholding items to keep your site afloat and some will donate.  This is different from how many paysites have been operating.  Quite a few free sites have been able to keep their sites open from donations without ever having to offer incentives.  If people like your site they will want to help.
 
Your work is of decent quality and you seem to be of good intelligence.  I do not know why you allow Thomas to exploit you for mere pennies compared to how much money he gets.  He will continue to get money for your work long after you've thrown in the towel.  
 
You should be using your skill on a real job and should stop asking people to pay for your hobby.

And if it never dawned on you that we might actually have TALKED about these things here, then...well....you grossly misunderstand what we mean by "We Make TSR Cry!".

Or you just are clueless.

Either way, look before you assume I am going to hand it all to you. I have not the time to do your searching for you.

So she wants us to ask permission to reupload? Well I would have thought that that has an obvious answer......

Meh its interesting. Dont quite know what to make of this....But I agree with how MissAngelica responded  :)  And the person who commented after her, who made the very good point that if Evi really enjoyed her creations then she would share them with everyone


She's now had a friend turn up (http://www.modthesims2.com/journal.php?do=showentry&e=1578):

This is so sad....
What I thought was a good idea has turned into a tool to be cruel. When I first read about promoting free sites, I was ready to jump on the band wagon. Then I started seeing a pattern. Instead of promoting free sites so they can gain popularity and be better known, it seems some people are trying to destroy pay sites with cruelty and no compassion what so ever. I have known evi for a while now. You will not find a more caring, compassionate person. She would give you the shirt off her back. She may not like me telling you this but, the little bit she made from TSR she donated to SFB...A FREE SITE!!!!!!!!!
Why can't we treat each other with a little more respect and instead of spending time trying to bring down pay sites, spend it better on making free sites known.

We're evil mean pirates because all though our site's called paysites must be destroyed we shouldn't be dissing paysites and pointing out their illegality we should only be talking about how great Nouk is (ps. Nouk is amazing). Personally I'm good at multi-tasking so I'm happy to do both.

And how do we destroy pay sites with compassion - 'Oh excuse me Thomas TSR is wonderful, now let me just smother it in it's sleep - don't worry it won't feel a thing.'

And you know bank robbers can donate their ill gotten gains to charity, but that doesn't negate the illegalness of robbing the bank in the first place. :roll:

In all honesty, I do understand where she is coming from and agree with it. But that doesnt mean that I do not disagree with this site (yeah obvious that, but just wanted to make that clear before someone flames me).

This was why I liked FFFS so much...even if it didnt obvioulsy do much, it supported free sites and that needed to be done. Its just a different way of looking at it -  we all want sites to be free, so some of us want to destroy paysites, and others want to support free sites, but most just want both. Really though we arent about actually destroying the sites...we just want them to go free.

And the problem with Evi is that she is on a site which doesn't let her have control over stuff, so if she wanted to go free then they probably wouldnt let her...so she, and the other FAs, get the hot rum (as it where) thrown at them. So when Debra says Evi is a nice person, I dont doubt it,  but she is on the wrong site. Its nothing personal against her, we just do not like TSR. But if she left TSR that doesn't mean that she would not get the support and respect she deserves - just look at IcedMango; people were very happy that she had gone free, and now she has a good site and a popular forum going on.

Well thats the way I see it...if all that made any sense. We need to support free sites and destroy paysites, otherwise things go way out of balance and the community will be even less merrier then what it is. Small note hear, TheSimsArtistUnion  (http://coris.dothome.co.kr/) made the decision not to go pay but desperately need donations to help run the site..so if anyone has any spare cash then thats a good site to help out. Er yeah...I have really gone off my point here, heck I cant even remember what I was going on about...oh someone please pass the rum!!

Er sorry for typos, I am sleepy

Agreed I don't dislike pay creators as a group, as individuals I'd probably like most of them if I met them in real life and talked to them. (I'd probably still dislike some or be scared of others but not because of their pay policies.)

The thing is we can spend all our time being compassionate saying Nouk is excellent, MTS2 rocks, Pescado has saved my computer from firey death, aren't all these places better than paysites, but in the end that ignores the issue that paysites are illegal and fucking up the community.

And when we do mention this well that's the point where people like Evi ram their fingers in their ears and start going la la while saying we're cruel. Calmly point out the mesage Nouk got (lies! Photoshopped lies!) or suggest they contact EA themselves so they can be proved right and show us the evidence (suddenly a deafening silence.)

And if you really want to you can remove stuff from TSR, people have managed it. It's not impossible you just have to have the energy to fight. And if you do want to do this do a search here find to out how they did it and then if you're still unsure or need help ask for it. (ETA or see the post directly under this one  :lol: )

To be honest one of the reason she gets little sympathy off of me for her message is she's chosen the wrong place in which to host it. Oh no MTS2 lets people mention the booty  :cry:  this is hurting me at TSR and it's not showing respect. But does TSR even let people link to MTS2?

I don't like disrespecting people but the thing is they have a choice, it may not be a choice they want but it's there. And if you remove the pay barrier that's cutting you off from the community and come back then nobody is going to keep giving you a hard time.

This is what I wrote to TSR:
Quote
I have become very troubled about TSR policies recently and I would like to remove the three items that I have uploaded here. I firmly believe all items made for The Sims 2 should be completely free for anyone to use. My neighborhood Midbiscus Grove has had a lot of downloads recently and the idea that it or any of my creations might be locked so players will have to pay to download it is unacceptable to me. Please remove Lounge on the Couch screenshot (http://www.thesimsresource.com/screenshots/view.php?id=71140) Tori Amos Shirt 001 (http://www.thesimsresource.com/downloads/sims2/clothing/female/adult/everyday/497956/) and Midbiscus Grove (http://www.thesimsresource.com/downloads/sims2/hoods/506909/) as soon as possible. If they are not removed within two weeks I will contact EA and have them intervene on my behalf. Thank you in advance for your prompt attention to this important matter.


By the way if anyone wants my Midbiscus Grove neighborhood it will always be free, along with anything else I post on my website in the future. You can download it without having to bother with TSR by clicking here: http://www.midbiscusgrove.com/downloads/midbiscus_grove.zip I'll be putting up preview pictures on my website soon. Thanks for edumacating me about the evil that is TSR!  :D


Ahh, we love TSR refugees. I think your letter looks good. Sherrie did something similar and got her files removed. If I stumble over the link, I'll post it here.

Congrats on going free.

Is it just me, or does the new set of Elmazzz eyes look incredibly similar to Helaene's sparkling eyes?

Elmazzz
(http://isc.thesimsresource.com/images/525/525632.jpg)

The TSR eyes aren't in the booty yet, so I can't do an out and out compare, but even without doing that, they're still very similar.  The Elmazzz eyes just seem to have a slight blur added, and darkening around the iris.  Coincidently, the set "Comes in 9 sparkling colors!"  All I know is, as soon as I saw that new set, I automatically thought of Helaene's.  Of course, Helaene's are nicer.

We took a look at the two textures....and while I appear to be in the minority so far, I think that the eyeballs are from the same source, and the shadowing is the product of the same Linda tutorial.

Other details in the textures are quite different. Someone has put out a call to Helaene to see whether she created teh original art or photoskinned...if the latter, then it's just an unfortunate coincidence.

And frankly, there are a dozen eyes that all look much like that....IMO.

"I can tell you unequivocally that EA wants TSR to remain and is taking steps to ensure their longevity. Don't waste time railing against TSR."
This was stated by Blue Soup over on SFV on Wed.  Anyone heard any ramblings about this?  Synapse actually asked for an explanation on Thursday but hasn't gotten one.  

Would EA protect TSR?  It's known TSR has been to the events and such that were conducted but it's also known that while Maxis was pretty lax on their EULA EA, being the money grubbing whores they are will defend that EULA.  Top that with the fact TSR Could in a sense be "grandfathered" since they have proof Maxis did support them even if they were violating TOS.

Post by: Hecubus on 2007 July 12, 18:52:53
It is my opinion Bluesoup is talking out of her ass.

Remember that the old Maxoids supported TSR, but Corporate EA takes a dim view of paysites. If she has information, it's likely outdated.


Title: TSR IS A SUCK-ASS SUCKY WEBSITE
Post by: littlemisspirate on 2007 July 12, 18:57:32
I don't see any reason why a lax attitude from Maxis would protect TSR from EA's ToS.  They're two very different corporate cultures.  Personally, I think EA is biding its time for Sims 3 - officially pulling the plug on paysites now would be an arduous and expensive task for a game that's got about 2 years of life in it left.  Maintaining a no-pay policy from the start of Sims 3, on the other hand, would be much, much simpler.


Title: TSR IS A SUCK-ASS SUCKY WEBSITE
Post by: Paden on 2007 July 12, 19:28:48
But by taking a stance now against paysitess, it will make it that much easier to stick to it when Sims 3 does come out. Establish a zero tolerance policy now and when some dumbass tries to open a paysite in the future, they'll have no way to claim that they didn't know it wasn't allowed. The only pixels you ought to have to pay for are the ones that come on your game disks. Other people who didn't have anything to do with the game's evolution are just trying to make a profit from the work of others. Many of them haven't done anything that makes the game play revolutionary so why should they get paid? It don't make sense... Then again, most humans don't.

Mmmhmm, much as I like the girl. I don't believe any "EA said" stuff until I see the emails. With names. Because if I ever see something that shocks my socks off, I'd email the EA employee to have them verify they sent it. I mean, I could just go around saying that EA told me that I could make a super-SP bundled file and charge $40 bucks a pop, as long as I didn't claim I was from EA, since it requires Sims2 and therefore publicizes their product. Doesn't make it true.

Wasn't Bluesoup pretty disillusioned when she left here? And could she not be saying this just to make those of us who haunt this board wonder if we'll succeed in our mission? And how probable is it that she would have inside information from the company? I will believe it when EA sends me, personally, a letter via the United States Post Office to cease and desist my actions against their chosen ones, the paysite owners. Until then, the said paysite owners can kiss my gluteus maximus. That means, Thomass, that you can kiss my ass. In theory. I don't want those lips of yours near me, I'd never be clean again... taint, taint!!

I totally have to agree here, I'm sure EA sees no point in racking up expensive legal fees for a game that is half dead already. In the cases of people like Sherry, they've already helped to get that content off of TSR so I don't think their support for TSR is as solid as Bluesoup claims it is. However, TSR does represent a large customer base that EA would love to keep its claws in, so they may work out some kind of license or agreement in the future (although who knows really, that's just speculation on my part).

At the moment the EULA is written so that EA can apply pressure when they feel like it and for whatever reasons they choose, but they don't have to. Paysites would probably make an obvious target for EA due to the fact that they are literally taking dollars out of EA's pocket, but it would be an unnecessary effort as far as they're concerned right now. There are very few sites left over from the original Sims game, so I imagine things will change and major sites will slowly either change or close down. When Sims 3 comes out the producers of CC will change (although some from Sims 2 may stick around) and will follow (or should follow) whatever the new rules for CC distribution are.


Title: TSR IS A SUCK-ASS SUCKY WEBSITE
Post by: Anouk on 2007 July 12, 20:38:33
So, EA could easily offer them a contract and cash in on all the money TSR makes. Would be stupid not to do it.

However, TSR would be extremely reformed, because in case of a contract, a disclaimer would be void. Then EA would be responsible and liable for everything they do.

Meaning:
- no photoskinning because of copyrights, unless contracted/open source
- no using meshes from 3rd parties to convert to sims 2, unless contracted
- advertisements not good for EA removed, resulting losss of income
- content not approved by EA removed
- treating people as proper EA customers
- complete policy changes
- FA's leaving because of influence on pay or hating policies, or not being able to function without photoskinning
- Same for sa's
- same for normal creators
- no brands
- no celebrities without approval


Title: TSR IS A SUCK-ASS SUCKY WEBSITE
Post by: mando on 2007 July 12, 20:53:01
Yep exactly, Nouk. If TSR did become a part of the EA "family" there would be major changes ahead for them, and they wouldn't be able to operate with impunity as the fear of lawsuits would be much more real. In this case, EA would probably just buy the owners off so that they would own the site. They may be figuring out which is cheaper now, suing them or paying them off!  :lol:


Title: TSR IS A SUCK-ASS SUCKY WEBSITE
Post by: Anouk on 2007 July 12, 21:46:05
Sueing them, they are breaking copyrights all over the place so they haven't a leg to stand on.

However, I believe the question is: what would make EA more money, a contract with them, or ending TSR becuase they are competition?


Title: TSR IS A SUCK-ASS SUCKY WEBSITE
Post by: Paden on 2007 July 13, 00:43:51
From what I've seen of competing businesses, the big normally kills off the small one every chance it gets. In my home town, Wal-Mart came in and killed off Pamida and Alco, and is making inroads on the Hy-Vee grocery store. They're out to make money, not friends. And if EA sees how much of a haul that they make at TSR, they're gonna want it in their own savings account. I hope. If something breaks your game, its much easier to go after a company because, after all, it's supposed to work when they put it on the shelves... If TSR gets absorbed, ala Borg style, that is all to the good, cause do you think EA is gonna let them put out shit that fuggers up your game?


Title: TSR IS A SUCK-ASS SUCKY WEBSITE
Post by: pinksmoke on 2007 July 13, 02:04:20
-stops lurking and registers-
I don't photoskin, and I have to shamefully admit I subscribed and submitted to TSR. In fact, my subscription's still active. I do have to agree with a lot of the things on this thread, especially the part about FAs photoskinning.

That pretty much is what Chazdesigns DOES. His earlier works were these latex PVC things that looked uncomfortable, but still a step up from what he's doing now.


Title: TSR IS A SUCK-ASS SUCKY WEBSITE
Post by: Minolia on 2007 July 13, 11:05:25
It's a possiblity that if EA forced TSR to close it might alienate some players, after all there are some people who've never gone further than TSR and it's boards and are still blissfully unaware that TSR pays it's FAs. And if EA pulled the site from under them they would be upset.

That said if EA wants to send a clear message to paysites that they're unacceptable going after and taking down TSR is going to make sure everyone knows that. If they don't feel it's worth the cost of the lawyers for a game that is on its way out  then I still think they could use the EULA and the threat that legal action could be taken to persude TSR to go back to a rotation system where all items would eventually be "free" and those not willing to wait could pay for immediate access. Which is not perfect but would be an improvement in the situation.

Hopefully for the sims 3 they'll have a clear no paysites policy which they'll defend from the outset.

While I most certainly don't support TSR, or paysites in general...might I say that your files there are absolutely hilarious. We at PMBD enjoy them. They are some of your best work yet.

No problem, I'll let him know! And thanks for the cherrios and cookies. As for Gilligan's Island, shockingly I've not seen the game. Now, if you are referring to being trapped on a desert island with four guys, I'm all for it.
I should have asked how much I can buy him for.

Here's her response:
ModTheSims has hacks which allow teen sims to become pregnant with alien babies and also have adult wants and wants to woohoo. ModTheSims also hosts anatomically correct skintones. TSR does not support the use of anatomically correct skintones or the use of mods allowing teens to woohoo or become pregnant.

That makes them look better. Parents buy there kids the game and their kids want CC. They find TSR and even though it's a paysite they'll pay for it because they allow no adult content. AND YET, tsr lets Lianaa and Juttaponath post those teen things that barely cover stuff. School girl outfits? Have you seen the stockings on those things and how short the skirts are? Not to mention the shirts...I mean rags. Tsk Tsk.  :D

They are so full of shit. They could care less about woohoo hacks/mods. They just don't want anyone visiting a site where you get quality items for FREE. And especially any site(s) that allow linking to the booty.

They *really* need to find a new excuse.
Anatomically correct skins and, in fact, all adult stuff, has been moved to Sexy Sims 2, what, a year ago?
And the inteenimator is on Insim.

The 'no linking to mts' has very little to do with adult content, methinks.

They've had this "policy" for ages.  They deleted one screenshot I had uploaded that was a toddler sitting on the potty without the censor blur.  A censor blur for when they're completely clothed--come on!  That's really stupid to me.  At the same time they have extremely inappropriate clothing for what they claim is a "kid friendly" site.  Back in my stupider, vigilante days, I actually would report everyone single set of the damned things hoping they would get pulled.  Of course they didn't do anything.  It's really irritating.  If you're going to claim your site is something then at least make your policy consistent across the site.

I don't doubt the main motive behind not allowing linking to MtS2 is that they would lose business.  This isn't a new low for them though.  It's been that way since Thomas was pming MtS2 creators on MtS2 trying to recruit them and the whole MtS2 VS TSR debacle went down.

I actually don't think it's too bad. At least it covers where it should. And it isn't a thong(hopefully). The colors are ugly, but the white is ok. When the sim was younger back in the day, garter belts use to be functional, not just for sex appeal. Sorry to be devil's advocate, but it ain't that bad.

My main peeve was with the see through stuff (most often lingerie) that also had anatomically correct skins.  While I may like anatomically correct skins, they're not appropriate for sites that claim to be kid friendly.

None of it, Capt. J. It's a troll. It's only other post was this in the Neptune Suzy thread:

Quote from: "aterenia"
I have also a question for NeptuneSuzy. Is it true that TSR spreads Trojans to its items that someone downloads  from sites other than TSR itself? My cousin downloaded a TSR item the other day from another site and this ruined his game. We are both afraid to download since then.


Plus, I just checked the booty and nothing's wrong with it. Nothing's borked, nothing's deleted, everything's downloadable.

So, like I said: TROLL.

Hey, I wasn't sure where to post this, but I thought this was really funny, I noticed that System of a Down wrote a song named ATWA!   :D   :lol:  
I think it's a somewhat apropriate song for it's namesake, it's one of their crappier whiny songs, with lyrics that are surprisingly very NOT creative.  Sounds like Atwa...
Here's the lyrics to the song if anyone is interested:


Hey you, see me, pictures crazy
All the world I've seen before me passing by
I've got nothing, to gain, to lose
All the world I've seen before me passing by
You don't care about how I feel
I don't feel there anymore
You don't care about how I feel
I don't feel there anymore
You don't care about how I feel
I don't feel there anymore
You don't care about how I feel
I don't feel there anymore

anymore... nananananananananana

Hey you, are me, not so pretty
All the world I've seen before me passing by
Silent my voice, I've got no choice
All the world I've seen before me passing by
You don't care about how I feel
I don't feel there anymore
You don't care about how I feel
I don't feel there anymore
You don't care about how I feel
I don't feel there anymore
You don't care about how I feel
I don't feel there anymore
I don't see, anymore
I don't hear, anymore
I don't speak, anymore
I don't feel

nananananananananananana... (x2)

Hey you, ugly, not so pretty
All the world I've seen before me passing by
I've got nothing, to gain, to lose
All the world I've seen before me passing by
You don't care about how I feel
I don't feel there anymore
You don't care about how I feel
I don't feel there anymore
You don't care about how I feel
I don't feel there anymore
You don't care about how I feel
I don't feel there anymore
I don't sleep, anymore
I don't eat, anymore
I don't live, anymore
I don't feel

Thank God somebody else said it; I thought it was my rude cynicism taking over again.  That shit is fugly.  Can we swear here?

Anyway, I had no idea there was so much backstage stuff going on!  Here I was, blithely downloading CC from the few people that I really like and avoiding the 95% of utter shit that's out there.  For a long time I steadfastly refused to pay for anything, but then some of those favorites of mine had "donation" sets that looked so appealing, like the Victorian set over at 4ESF, etc.  So I justified it by thinking to myself that these are individuals who are approaching this like a job, and it's no big deal to support them here and there.  I still refused to pay the big bucks for the obvious hacks who had no right to charge as much as they were (you guys have slammed them all pretty well on this board so you know who I'm pointing at here).

I guess I should have realized that TSR is a big soul sucking corporation and my sub money wasn't actually going to the artists that I liked so much (Windkeeper, Cyclonesue, Cashcraft).  Coming here has been an eye opening experience.  I should've been more suspicious of TSR, and for that I apologize.  But I still have eight months of a year subscription with them...don't hate me.

My biggest issue with TSR other than the fact that pretty much everything is pay is that their search function is ridiculously obtuse.  Good luck finding something specific!  If you don't want to filter out everything but the FA stuff, you're SOL.

I guess I was pretty naive in using the same username for everything, but live and learn.

CONSPIRACY ALERT!
Thomass wouldn't upgrade the current crappy TSR search "tool" because...(wait for it)
There may be a diamond in the rough or two in the abyss of calamities and despair (aka TSR free section), but are you really gonna sit there for hours scrolling through thousands of puppy-decorated shower curtains for the good stuff? Some sheeple (and normal beings with their own brain are known to fall for this too) would just see the much easier-to-navigate (yet still crappy) FA pages with their doctored-up previews and think "Oh! There's good stuff right here! I don't need to go searching anymore!" and get a subscription. And then sadly realize that Chaz's hair really does look in bad in-game as it does in pictures.
I think this could be a hidden strategy of Thomass... :lol:

The only hair I use religiously in game is Nouk, HP, and....a third person whose name I can't remember to save my life.  Shit.  I think the website is Japanese based.  There's only one person on TSR that does a decent job that I've found.  Hair is a very iffy prospect in the game and you gotta stick with the few people who spend the time and effort to do it right.

How about scrolling back a few pages on this thread? Or doing a search? Believe it or not, you CAN find things for yourself.

And if it never dawned on you that we might actually have TALKED about these things here, then...well....you grossly misunderstand what we mean by "We Make TSR Cry!".

Or you just are clueless.

Either way, look before you assume I am going to hand it all to you. I have not the time to do your searching for you.

[/rant]

Anyone else want to ask me a stupid question today? Hmmm?


It would normally be beneath my contempt to dignify your post with a response, nevertheless I will say a few words.

You know, dear hecubus, I have never spoken to you with disrespect up till now. I admire what you are doing for the anti-paysite cause, but I will not put you on a pedestal because of it. It costs nothing to be polite. When I asked was it worth asking EA for help, all you had to say was yes. Or if my question was so insulting to you, you could have chosen to ignore it completely. I can only assume the evening primrose harvest was late this year or that it's just in your nature to be a rude obnoxious bitch. I really have nothing else to say to you.

Search is your friend. But since I am in a fairly nice mood....

Thank you bigtruckgirl. I did actually read that thread, but - doh! - started on page 2 and forgot to go back to page 1.  (The search function didn't really help me in this case. Nothing relevant came up -I've never been good at getting the right search terms). Anyway, I've emailed EA, hopefully they can help me get my stuff off there.

I used to play Puzzle Pirates for about a year and a half, as Zazazu. The first six months were great...largely older adult population, very addictive yet different, very open-ended. Then my crew sort of died the slow death. I quit the game for a few months and came back. In the interim, they'd completely dumbed the game down and started pushing advertising on all these kiddy sites (NeoPets) despite the fact that it's a 13+ game. The populace went to hell and became a bunch of flighty 8-year-olds who did nothing but whine in chatspeak. Tried playing solo, but it's not really enjoyable that way.

So yeah. TSR + Y!PP in its current incarnation = match made in heaven.

Other moderated forums I visit tend to delete these kinds of threads, saying that they won't provide support for other forums.

They've built up one hell of an impressive cult and I am in awe.

Whether TSR was invited or they gatecrashed the gig, EA is still naming TSR as their top Sims fan site. EA likes TSR - that's clear.

So, one of the following must be true:

(1) EA has no idea that TSR runs at a profit (most unlikely)
(2) EA excludes TSR from their EULA
(3) EA doesn't care about paysites and the previous EA 'legal letters' are all crap.

I wish EA would come clean on what they REALLY think. :(

And if it's any consolation to Delphy and the rest of the MTS2 crew I did suggest to them that if they really feel they need to have a "top fansite" MTS2 is a much more deserving contender than TSR.

I'm sending a letter too.  I know it probably won't do much good, but this really pisses me off.  They go on and on in their letters that paysites are illegal.. and then endorse the biggest one right on the website.  Excuse me, but what the fuck?

Well, I'd email them if I could find the email address to send it to. I'm probably missing something obvious, but I'm pretty sick today and a bit out of it.

Quote from: "MinLynn"
I was just completely floored by it.  I mean whenever I have been in ANY forum and someone asks "Where can I find?"  99% of the time MTS2 is the first place they are directed to.  Rarely have I seen anybody direct to TSR simply because it is pay.  I hadn't even heard of the majority of the other sites that were listed either.  And of course everybody on the BBS is finding a new found love of TSR now.  EA said they're the "top" fansite and whatever EA says is golden to them.


Very true. Whenever someone asks for anything regarding CC on the BBS, I always point them to MTS2.

On that thread this very angry 'not teenager' (as she loved to point out) said that 'they' (meaning these lovely pirates) were immature and that we are not always entitled to things for free. Apparently she missed the memo where TS2 is a game and that paying for pixels is ludicrous.

Possibly. I just wish someone would seriously go down to the EA headquarters and bust a cap in someone's ass. They need to make a decision, thus preventing poor, ignorant simmers from actually liking TSR.

And I posted on that thread too. Twice. I couldn't help it.

ETA: I totally didn't even realize that the bitchy girl was a creator on TSR. Laff. No wonder she was so up in arms. She even has a link in her signature. *shakes head*

Even if pay IS okay, I still think that buying up fansites and holding people's content hostage is nasty enough behavior to at least keep TSR from being called the top fansite.  Does anyone with half a brain really think anyone at TSR cares about fans?

Even if there IS some vendetta at EA against MTS2, how come none of the other larger or high quality fansites were there?  The rest of the list aren't on the list of sites (in my head) I see recced a lot, visited a lot, or that I use.

Nothing wrong with giving information as long as its fair from both sides.

I agree with the original poster. TSR has some amazing downloads. Their staff is helpful and respectful above all and it's a great web site and community. And it's safe for everyone. I've never had a bad download from there in 8 years. And you will find some of the best creators on that web site pay and free.

Since there is nothing wrong with giving information out, it is of the utmost importance that the teens here should know that MTS2 is owned and run by a convicted sex offender. This is a fact. Not slander, not rumors. This is a certified news site report of the conviction.
http://archive.thisishampshire.net/2001/6/25/73971.html
Before you all send unknowing children there please inform them that they are downloading items from a web site owned by a child predator.

I think that obtaining free downloads is less important than sending your children to a potentially unsafe web site!

All that seems to matter in this community is what is free and what isn't. The safety of our children matters more than any custom content ever will. If there are parents on this web site, I beg of you to please not let your children participate in a community run by a criminal who targets minors.
There are plenty of other web sites that are not run by predators who can hurt our children.


Just in case it's delete. Also for the people who hate the BBS.

Re: I love this Sim Resource Site

Oh, right, nevermind the fact that not one single person who has signed up for MTS2, and there are millions, has come to ANY harm WHATSOEVER, the website is potentially unsafe.

It couldn't be that the guy's sorry and is better? It couldn't be that he's done therapy or anything? He's not preyed on a SINGLE child since opening the site, and you know there are kids signing up there, but somehow his website is "dangerous" despite being run by a dozen mods, not just this guy? Please.

edited to add: it says that he's interested in "older teenage girls". Like, 16, 17 year olds? Like the kind that are half-naked all over the TV nowadays? The kind that are just as physically developed as adults? He didn't touch them, either, he looked at them naked. Frankly I'd be surprised to find a man who ISN'T interested in a 17-year-old naked. If he was interested in 5-year-olds, I'd be worried.

Here's the newest post from that same poster.

 He hasn't?
Funny my daughter's close friend was one of his victims only 3 months ago.

Would you like to see the conversation?
I've removed the CHILDS name from this as shes scared to death to reveal who she is but she wanted to tell someone what happened to her.

Chatter1 (3:35:03 AM): Has Delphy ever spoken to you in a manor that made you uncomfortable? In an inapropriate way from a grown man to a teenager?
Chatter2 (3:35:17 AM): Definetely, on multiple occasions.
Chatter1 (3:35:35 AM): Can you tell me some of the general statements he has made.
Chatter2 (3:39:28 AM): "Youre so sexy.."
"Talking to you turns me on."
"It's be better if you weren't wearing anything. "
--And the like..
Chatter1 (3:42:07 AM): Has Delphy ever asked you for naked pictures or pictures of you in your underwear?
Chatter2 (3:42:46 AM): Yes, on several occasions.
Chatter1 (3:43:03 AM): At the time he asked for these pictures did he know how old you were
Chatter2 (3:50:15 AM): Yes, he did know how old I was, because I had stated it several times in chat when he was present. And I am 15 years old.

This is someone who is sorry? Thankfully her parents cared enough about her to remove her from his web site as well.
People have a RIGHT to know the person who is exposed to their children!

Using something a person DID to get people away from a website? Are you serious? You don't see us telling all of Thomas' private life. I don't believe that for one bit.

If true then that proves that your daughter's friend's parents need to watch her more on the internet and what sites she visits. I think you are just mad because MTS2 does good and people like it more than TSR. You are so low for doing something like this.

Go crawl back in your hole,

That message doesn't seem like it was typed by a normal 15 year old and it sounds like an interrogation, I agree. The beginning of the thread sounded like the Attack of the Sheeple. Then they have to bring up the old Delphy drama. For the sake of things that are kitties, find some new drama.

Okay, after reading that post and then a google, I stumbled upon this little website

http://sims2-snapshots.livejournal.com/3852.html?thread=9996

It has few facts, being the conviction...but there are some things that make me cringe, such as their "proof" of women being paid by Delphy.  You can't enlarge these images or read them too clearly, and while the writer claims that he used MTS2 money, there is no proof of that.

I don't know much at all about Delphy or everything that surrounds him, so I'm not on any "sides", but this site is accusing him of embezzlement without any major evidence.

Doesn't that then fall under Libel, meaning they could be sued in the real world..?

EDIT:  This has already been posted.  Delphy answered it actually.  This was Lyric Lee & her little evil friends who did this.

Of course they'd probably have security escort me out, but it could be worth a shot.

She's probably close to getting banned.  I hope so, she needs to crawl back over to TSR.  If I were Thomas, I'd be pissed at the way she acted, it wouldn't make anyone want to go to that site because of her and the way she talked to everyone.

Problem with that is, Thomas lacks rational thinking.  If it cause a drop in site visits, he'd turn it around and make it OUR fault.

Okay, after reading that post and then a google, I stumbled upon this little website

http://sims2-snapshots.livejournal.com/3852.html?thread=9996


Read more carefully. It was posted because it was being censored. Look at the whole LJ.

The poster is not against Delphy, and, in fact, calls the people circulating the bullshit "raving lunatics".

How do I know?

S2S is one of my LJs.

It was posted so people could see what was being spewed, rather than guess.

I think Lyric Lee and her ilk are nutburgers.

Very curious that you didn't pick up on my point of view.

Quote
For fuck's sake. *sigh* Well, here's the latest Sims2 fan drama. I'm posting it only because it has been censored left, right and center since it has been posted. This doesn't mean that I don't think the people behind it aren't raving lunatics.


chinchillagrl6 posted the same thing, actually. As noted.

My other comment:



Quote
Oh Em Eff Gee. Double-you Tee Eff.

(I have a headache after all that.)

So there you are. Do with the information what you will.

The biggest dumbassery in the above info is linking MATY (moreawesomethanyou) with MTS2 (modethesims2) and whatever the other one was...S2C, right. The latter two are actually connected, whereas MATY is an entity unto itself. Duh, Barbie.

It is suspected that one of the writers is an ex-mod who was fired from MTS2 for being a power-mad fuckhead with a rageful hard-on for MATY, because s/he also supports paysites.

[exerpt from Medico, from #grah here]

The folks behind the screed are hitting every major forum in the community and posting this poopness, and it is being repeatedly deleted. Whatever. I think they're mostly bugshit, but the deletions are foolish, it just makes people pay closer attention and ask questions and assume the angry letter people have a point.

The comparison between MTS2 and CULTS (ohmigawd, people, why are you so lame?) is particularly tardly.

I don't feel one way or the other about Delphy, myself. He's neither befriended nor offended me in any way.

FACT: He had girlie pix on his computer. Busted! Damn, divorce drama is arsey.
FACT: He hosts MTS2, S2C and UniversalSims. USims's Nate got a whoppin' bill.
FACT: There's no such word as "silmilairities."

All else is up for debate.

I have to ask... Why are there no fandoms free of wankiness? Why? WHY?

Cults. I ask you. What the hell is their glitch?! Gawd. Lame.


I felt that it was better for people to be able to read the craziness for themselves, and see what all the shit was about, rather than asking someone and hearing only "Delphy's a pedophile! Burn him!!" and going off half-cocked as a result.

I think reading the whole screed is educational.

These are not normal people, here. No normal person would spread that crap around.

I invite you to read more of that LJ, I think my opinion on everything is quite clear! :)

All of a sudden Dinad is back on TSR's side again eh? Figures she's a two-faced bitch that can be won over with a simple doggy biscuit.

Now I begin to wonder if Dinad has already forgiven ThomASS and Atwat for the accusations of her being a pirate. Hmm... and from what I recall of months past she was alongside Netseeker screaming and hollering about the unfairness of not being good enough to be considered an FA. Then bam! SA and minisite were given to her and Netseeker. If only to shut them both up.

Sad thing is that I have it on good authority that ThomASS considers both Dinad and Netseeker's CC absolute 'bullshit'. Yet here she is on the BBS pretending that she's TSR's personal crusader. Poor old lady. She's fawning over a paysite that gives not a whit of a shit about her and her fugly custom creation crap.

Just to set something straight - I do not host UniversalSims anymore - I haven't done for a few months.

Edit: Good to see the stuff is gone, becuase this shit is getting tiring.

Also, that so-called chat log thing - I don't know who the hell that is, but I have never had any kind of relationship with anybody under 18, so this is total crap.  I just wish these people who shut the fuck up and go away.  I guess, in a sense, they've already won becuase I have zero desire to own or run a website for the Sims 3 and am rapidly getting tired of the Sims 2 ones.

Delphy, I understand why you would feel this way.  But, there are those of us who have stood up many times for you and will continue to do so.  Everybody makes mistakes and I for one don't think they should pay forever for them.  It's a little disheartening to hear you say that, especially when this community came out and with-in I believe a 24 hour period raised the money that you asked for to buy a new server.  

I, for one, don't know you personally, but have no problem telling people to shut the fuck up.  I am so sick of hearing about it, that it just pisses me off.  It has no place nor relevance to this community and until every paysite owner is going to post their past for us all to review and pass judgement on, then it should be left alone.  Sorry that there are people that low and stupid, but many of us here "have your back" and could give a shit less about your personal life which is absolutely none of my business.

Delphy, don't give up! To do so would only give them an orasmic feeling and they would win. You're too good of a person to let the idiots and assholes have their way and run rough shod over everyone. Past is past. Mistakes have been made. You've learned to go on. I respect you for that. I will tell anyone to shut the fuck up because they weren't there and involved on a personal level. They're getting vicarious kicks out of slinging mud because it's an emotional issue. People like this are emotional vampires, they feed off of the emotions they whip people into feeling. Not good. Not healthy. I'm behind you. Always will be. Please, my friend, and I call you such because you're a decent person and I'm not about to call you dear stranger, don't give in to the bastards and fucknuts floating around. We can be just as loud and drown out the voice of ignorance, and we will when we need to. You can count on us. Like armywife said, we've got your back and we'll guard it well.

Well, the thing is, it's pretty hard to get on with your life if every time you turn around there is people spreading shit about you at every opportunity - and it's only gotten worse with time.  I can try and be strong but it does affect me to a large degree.  I don't like that period of my life back then - it brings back bad memories, so to have it dragged up and used to attack me at every opportunity (even things like innocous bbs posts) really wears my levels down.

The other point is that MTS2, as a site, really only interests me for the technical challenges, and there are very few of those left now - and by that I mean coding and general maintenance. I daresay the friendships I have there will survive, but, if I was to retire, the site as an entity would still go on, it just wouldn't be directly run by me.

I thank everybody here for thier support - it does mean a lot.  This whole thing has taken a lot out of me personally though, and if I do contribute to the Sims 3 it will be in a purely advisory or technical capacity rather than running a fansite becuase that's really what I wanted to do anyway.

That is, however, a ways off yet - I'm not out of the game becuase there is a lot left to do.  I do feel better knowing that I have a whole lotta people basically going round kicking ass for me, so I guess only time will tell.

Delphy, I think at this point, any one who has already heard of what happened in your past, no longer gives a shit/no longer holds it against you.  It's your past, it's your business, but the past should stay in the past.

It's unfortunate that people are bringing your shit into the "Paysites vs Freesites" issue, but those who are bringing it up are ridiculously immature and think that trashing you by bringing up your past is an excuse for why paysites are "better" and freesites are actually the "evil" ones.

Hopefully EA makes a clear statement for Sims3, and I hope that when that time comes around, you are not fully out of the game.  Anyone who has ever downloaded from MTS2 or who has benefitted in any way from what you've done for us, has gratitude for you, whether they express that or not.  Because without what you've done, we wouldn't have what we have now, we wouldn't have a huge site filled with free, quality stuff.  I'm not ass-kissing or anything, but I feel like what I've said is the truth.  You don't have to create much for the game itself, but the fact you provide us with a place for people to do so and share freely is enough.

I'm sorry that a bunch of morons out there feel the need to throw you into a flaming pit, and I'm sure we all understand that while it is in the past, it does bring up some bad things for you and does affect you.  No one deserves that.

Thank you for your efforts, and for staying as strong as you can, Delphy.

Well said!

I should probably edit the (very old) post at s2s.lj.com, too, because even though Delphy has not befriended or offended me, I have long since gone way beyond being neutral on the subject. Heck, even then, I was on his side.

Delphy may not be my bestest buddy, but I still feel warmly towards him for the good he has done for the community, his sense of humour when he visits, and because I see him as the aggrieved party.

If Delphy, or any other person, wishes to respond to the crazies point by point, I will post every letter of their comments. I always have posted every comment in all journals; I do reserve the right to preview them first to weed out any commercial links, porn images, or unintelligible BBS-speak, but have only had to reject one (Anonymous) comment ever, which was an uninspired and uncreative 'griefer' image (like 'Beecock'/'Goatse'/'Tubgirl', et cetera). No reason was given, and it didn't seem to be in response to anything, so it was probably just some bored kid trying to see how many journals they could post yucky stuff to.

As far as I am concerned, though, most people read the crap and my comments and understood full well that it was the work of crazy or vindictive buttholes, and I didn't even get the crazies chinchillagrl6 got when she posted the same thing for the same reason. (Darn!)

My personal preference, which may or may not be relevant, is that it remain an old and dead issue. The info is there not to injure Delphy, but to show the curious bystander what ludicrous crap was actually being said. Rumours without a definite source get distorted and morph, like in the game of Telephone, and since the allegations were horrific enough, that bugged me. There were a lot of tongues wagging, and many of those gossipers had, apparently, not even seen the original shitty post, but were merely passing on exaggerated tales heard second-hand, third-hand, fourth-hand, etcetera. Lots of naive youngsters blindly trusted that the rumours were true and attempted to crucify Delphy further for things he has not, in my opinion, done.

So I posted the screed, and made my opinions quite clear, and the comments I got were clearly in favour of Delphy, as should be, and against the fucktards who felt the need to start a crazy vendetta. (I did notice that some of the original comments to the post are gone, but I did not remove them. IT ARE A MYSTERY.)

My belief is that very, very few of the allegations have ever been even remotely true. What little was based in fact is old, old news, is no longer remotely relevant, and is none of our business.

I further believe that the whole thing was done to discredit a freesite owner who has done more to fight against people who break the EULA than most in the community, and done his best to prevent Moderator abuses, and the ringleader of the whole sorry event was probably Lyric Lee, plus some other co-conspirators (see the comments attached to the aforementioned sims2-snapshots link, where they are named).

I typically take a neutral stance in the community at large, but there are exceptions.
1. I am not neutral, in the least, where paysites are concerned. They are in the wrong. They must be destroyed.
2. Spreading vile gossip about community members in order to discredit them is shitty.
3. EA needs to clarify their position. As it stands, all we have is the EULA< which is pretty cut and dried to me: commercial gain related to The Sims is only for EA. No one else is allowed to make a buck on the game. Very simple, very clear. Whereas we have letters that further underscore this policy, we also are getting mixed messages, most of which seem to be due to EA not being full aware of these discrepancies (e.g., what Maxoids are saying, fansite lists, invites to events).
4. Maxis needs to stop having any say in game-related policy, because every decision they make seems to be fraught with stupidity and contradiction. As they are now owned by EA, and subject to EA's policies, they need to follow them.
5. Pescado is an ass, he knows he is an ass, he says openly that he is an ass, and, as such, I have no problem when he behaves like an ass. Especially when PMBD and MATY are there to show how much good he has done for the community as a whole.
6. Pirates rock.

"Attack" you? No. Think that your insistence that this old, old news, which occurred long before Delphy was involved with Sims stuff in any way, and which we only know the barest details about is IRRELEVANT? Yes.

So, no, I wouldn't be a thoughtless sheep assuming that the gossip was true and going off on a "Think of the chillldruuun" tirade until I did my own homework. Too bad you can't do the same.

As Delphy stated, I too believe MTS2 would continue without him. The sims would not fall apart.


Actually I doubt that - there are no other sites up to the standard of MTS2 - or the size.  It is unrivalled, and I wonder that it could survive without Delphy's tireless devotion.

Quote from: "kaos"
But by the same token, I also believe that this particular crime makes his current position as owner of a child-dominated game website inappropriate.


Child dominated? The game is rated for teens - there are no children involved.  He's not running the Wiggles site.

Quote from: "kaos"
If Delphy were a teacher at a school, regardless of the level of his crime, you and I both know we would not send our kids there.


Delphy is not at a school - he's a distant site owner, who doesn't spend his whole time interacting with people - he spends a great deal of time tending to his site.   Teachers interact one on one with students day after day, and parents reinforce ideas of obeying teachers.  Delphy occassionally interacts one on one with people and nobody tells anyone else to obey him.  Not the same power balance at all even if you believe he's doing something wrong.

Quote from: "kaos"
The hypocrisy in here astounds me! If this was a paysite owner's past, you know you would use it as ammunition against him.


Wrong!

When it came out that Jan from Main st. Sims is possibly schizophrenic, did you see posts on how all schizophrenics should be hospitalised and institutionalised or in any way used against her? No - because it's immaterial to her being a paysite owner.  People didn't care because they'd decided well before that that she is a mental bitch.

When someone made a racial stereotypical comment about Peggy - they were slapped down pretty fast.

Lurk Moar!

True if this was a paysite owners past we probably would be attacking but we only attack paysite owners because paysites are illegal.

But Delphy isn't a paysite owner and he has put his past behind him and has made mts2 the great site it is these people have no reasons or rights to go round spreading shit about him

In all honesty, I don't think that TSR being EA's top site is anything to worry about...its only because we are applying it to this kind of situation (pay vs free, and all that shizzle) that it matters - so what if TSR is EA's top site?

~enter drum role here~  :)

Now before you attack me for having an opinion, this post is only an observation and not meant in any way to discredit Delphy. Like you, I believe Delphy's contribution to this entity that people refer to as a community, to be important. Maybe not as important as is made out, but still a contribution, nonetheless. As Delphy stated, I too believe MTS2 would continue without him. The sims would not fall apart.

That being said, I do believe that it is a shame that someone's past is used against them. Especially when they have paid for it. But by the same token, I also believe that this particular crime makes his current position as owner of a child-dominated game website inappropriate. If Delphy were a teacher at a school, regardless of the level of his crime, you and I both know we would not send our kids there. It's a simple fact. And to say you would continue to send your kids there, I believe is an untruth.

The hypocrisy in here astounds me! If this was a paysite owner's past, you know you would use it as ammunition against him. You can't be that naive to believe you wouldn't?  I have seen things said in here that proves that. In fact, I have seen you run with information about people like sharks in a feeding frenzy, be they truth or lies. From what I have seen it doesn't seem to matter either way to this forum.

I have said my piece. You may attack me now. Sharpen those hyporitical teeth and feed away! :D


First, using an example of school teacher / children is not even a true example - why?  Background checks are always done and there is student/teacher face to fact interaction which a teacher is hired to be there and instruct children.  Not the case with Delphy at all.  Delphy is not hired, does not receive a paycheck and the purpose of his site is not a specific age group.

Second, no I would not splash something like that across the internet.  It is done to smear the personal life of someone in an obnoxious manner.  We may "run" with information as you put it, but wasn't the person being talked about the original source of the information?  

I really don't know why I replied to this senseless message to begin with.  Flame you - it's not worth the effort.   MTS2 is not a child-dominated website either.  Good grief - it's not Pokemon.  This is actually none of your business or mine.  I monitor my children and their computer usage which as a parent is my responsibility.  The only reason this keeps coming up is because there are those who are just evil.  It is not your "right" or my "right" to know.  These other so-called events are the imaginations of people who are the real monsters.  Because if the don't like you or become angry at you, you become fair game and there are no boundaries in their behavior as they try to destroy you.  It is childish and immature, and I am no longer going to put up with anyone posting the shit again....period.

That being said, I do believe that it is a shame that someone's past is used against them. Especially when they have paid for it. But by the same token, I also believe that this particular crime makes his current position as owner of a child-dominated game website inappropriate. If Delphy were a teacher at a school, regardless of the level of his crime, you and I both know we would not send our kids there. It's a simple fact. And to say you would continue to send your kids there, I believe is an untruth.


I really have to disagree with you calling The Sims 2 a child oriented game.  While I cannot find the data anymore but I seem to recall the primary sales demographic of the Sims franchise has been to over 30 women.  Furthermore having been there since pretty much the start of MTS2 (though not terribly active) it really was started as an enthusiast community of developers and hackers seeking to probe the internals of the game and ultimately allow expansion beyond the capabilities of the tools given to us.  The downloads and stuff came later.  You cannot expect someone to close down something just because it's more successful then they first planned.  

You take anyone yourself included and dig enough and you can make that person look like the worst person in the world.  Denying people credit and acceptance for their hard is simply paranoia.


Delphy,

I would like to personally thank you for all your hard work particularly in the beginning when without your work we wouldn't know half the things we do about the game.

It's also rated T for Teen. So if the parents that claim Delphy is such a bad person they can really only blame themselves. If they were so worried about their kids from the get go they wouldn't have bought a Teen game for a "kid."

My mom did not allow my brother to get the first sims game until he was exactly thirTEEN. A year after it came out. Cause that's how she rolls

Yes, they were a paysite, but only charged for some of their stuff. As opposed to now, on TSR, where they'll charge for all of their stuff.

I don't like this conglomeration on TSR.  While it might be easier to stop pay creators in the long run, if they're on only one site, I think what we lose is a part of the diversity in the community.  I hate the thought of having only two competing "powers" (TSR/MTS2).  And I also think the larger TSR grows, the harder it will be  for EA to go after them.

Title: TSR IS A SUCK-ASS SUCKY WEBSITE
Post by: alia on 2007 August 02, 12:05:23
Teko has hanged around at Simbella for years, he's Bella's "special friend".
Bella maintains on the forum that Teko is her "boytoy" and flirts constantly with him, which is to say the least weird, since she is 40ish and Teko is barely legal... and that started way before he was legal...

I'm betting Simbella is the main reason why he thinks it's OK to sell your creations. The attitude at the forum favours paysites and exclusive files so that you can show them off to others who are less fortunate and make them jealous.

Post by: dietofworms on 2007 August 02, 15:40:02
:shock:   Thanks for the explanation!

I remember a similar game being played with "exclusive" files when Cole was around.  People would buy her files, or would be given them as special gifts, and post them in the houses they built.  Then in WCIF forums, when someone would ooh and aah over the stuff, the lucky downloader could say "Sorry, the file is not available."  Then everyone else would get jealous.   meh.

Diversity is only so desirable before certain acts become unacceptable.  Acceptance and appreciation of illegal behavior don't fall under that umbrella.  It's like saying we should tolerate people who run red lights or roll through stop signs because we should respect their right to drive in a way special and unique from everyone else on the road.

The analogy would work better if you could come up with something that didn't hurt or endanger other people.

You are just saying "I agree with you" or "I see where you are coming from," then you continue with your shit. I agree that we may be trying to do the same thing you are but at least if we don't agree with someone we give them our reasonings. You just keep bombarding us with more questions.

Pardon me for fucking posting, but who the hell has a right to own a business making profits through fansites?  Fansites are not chartered to be businesses.  It's supposed to be in support of fans.  

I don't give a rat's ass if you have to work at McDonald's (no offense to those who do), you shouldn't take the copyright and license of an entity, modify it a little and slap your name on it to sell it.  

You know where paysites err, it is in arrogance.  The reponse you get here, the shove it up your ass response, is due to it being shoved down the throats of so many for so long.  And now, the whiny and bitchy - "it's not fair you have my "intellectual property" for free for everyone so now I can't sell it.  You are just mean bad pirates."  So while your here, save us time and go ahead and update your shit.  That'd be great.  Help feed my chilluns for once.  Or better yet, become a free site, we'll remove you from the booty.  Don't pitch shit-fits because a large portion of this community is fed up with paying for a lot of crap that fucks up our game and doesn't even work properly - you sold it, didn't warn us, Photo-shopped most of it, and gave no guarantees as to quality.

So fuck off.

When someone pays it is being made by free will.

If EA silently approves of what paysites are doing even though it doesn't exactly comply with the EULA, is it still immoral?

I've never really understood why some people have a desire to ruin things for others, why can't we just let people do what they want with their life  as long as it don't hurt anyone else?

Isn't it fantastic if someone is fortunate enough to be able to make a living off of creating sims 2 content?

Better yet, how about not relying on a game that is licensed by a publically traded company and get a fucking job.  I have one, you can too.  Damn, I have to get a new one in a different city, state about every 3-4 years.

I don't need to examine the "feelings".  Mine are quite clear and to even propose that people make a living and support their households on game content, they should go to www.ea.com and apply online.

Here's your answer:
1.  There is no recourse if items do not work properly or have been altered without notice
2.  There are no control mechanisms in place, ie, polycount, etc.
3.  If I am unsatisfied, I cannot get a refund
4.  If a site chooses not to make updates, closes, etc. I am out the money I "donated" for a month's access
5.  If I need help or cannot get something to work in my game as advertised, there is no guarantee that the site owner/creator will repair it
6.  If my harddrive fails, I can reload all these damn cds from EA, but can't go get the pay content (except you can thank the booty snatchers for solving this problem for you)
7.  If an item is fixed or updated, if I have no sub there is no guarantee that I can obtain the update to a file

Those are just what I came up with in the 2 minutes I answered, should you need more, I will supply.

It pisses me because of these reasons and because there are other ways to sustain and pay for bandwidth.  But to force a community to pay you to support your family or yourself because you are too fucking lazy to get employment is wrong.  EA condones Fansites.  EA is a business they don't hide behind any fascade.  They don't say, "Well we have this game and we just want you to play and help us pay to keep it on line and feed our chilluns".   I have yet to see where EA has ever said that you can have a Sims business and make money in any written context or statement.   But remember, if you profit from their business, and you use it to support yourself, it could come down at some point that you must pay royalties to EA for original content and subject matter.

nohead, I'm going to say this once: shut the fuck up! No one should make a profit from the EA Games product known as the Sims 2 other than those employed by that company! Where in the hell you get your delusions from is beyond the reasoning capacity that I have within my skull cavity. And, before you rip on my intelligence, don't. I may not belong to Mensa, but I've been able to see that idiots like you are just trying to stir the shit for a bit of amusement. Many people get that good feeling is at the end of a hard day's work. It's called being gainfully employed in the public (or in the case of an ass like yourself pubic) sector by a company. They are employed by a legal company entity and pay taxes and all of that happy fun shit. Meanwhile, idiots on the net rip off consumers and don't pay a damn thing in tax. Not fair. Do they even have a sales permit. Are they condoned by the company in big red text that proclaims that they are the chosen? I don't think so! The crap about the pubic sector was thrown at you because you definately seem to be an asskissing twit. Notice I said "twit" instead of "twat". You don't qualify as a twat because frankly, you're just full of wind, piss, and stupid ideas. Sharing content is gooooooood. The EULA says so. Selling content is baaaaaaaaaaaaad. Even the sheeple are starting to think so. I'm gonna change my mind though about saying it only once. nohead, SHUT THE FUCK UP! Your whining and whinging is doing nothing but make me want to empty my charcoal lighter fluid into one of your body cavities and then follow that up with my lighter wand! Roasted, toasted and crispy fried, don't look now but your argument's died!

I have recently come out with a tutorial for submitting to TSR, and I am at the moment writing another tutorial in how to submit a lot, a set of lots and a couple of other ways to submit.. I am also going to write that tutorial I promised a long time ago, some tips and trix in PsP on recoloring..



NOOOOO!!!! Is there no end to her evil?!!?  :shock:

Not only she subjects poor unsuspecting sheeple to her recolours, but now she intend to create an army of recolourers that use her techniques!!! She is evil, evil, I say! For all that is good and beautiful in this world, she must be stopped!

On the other hand, if TSR is filled with mini-atwas, maybe the sheeple will  wisen up and leave. I didn't think think the quality at TSR could become even more craptastic than it already is, but apparently I was wrong. So, by all means, Atwa, please continue. If she actually pulls this off, she might succeed in destroying TSR all by herself.

I have recently come out with a tutorial for submitting to TSR, and I am at the moment writing another tutorial in how to submit a lot, a set of lots and a couple of other ways to submit.. I am also going to write that tutorial I promised a long time ago, some tips and trix in PsP on recoloring..




I've never uploaded to TSR (even before I knew of their evilness) because the place is horrible to search, but if they need tuts to tell people how to upload, exactly how many hoops do they make the witless jump through before taking permanent hold of their stuff? And how stupid is a paysite that make it hard for sheeple to upload content. :roll:

That and I have a sneaking suspicion that Atwa's tutorials may cause blindness if they're anything at all like her "creations."

No? Well then maybe you should try to figure out what that feeling is and see if it really does any good.


Quite honestly I feel about the same about them as I do idiots that sit double parked in disabled parking in the grocery store selling bootleg DVDs out of the back of their car.  Just because there are idiots out there willing to part with their money on something doesn't mean what they are doing is moral, legal or useful.

The recolor of your mesh is free, but you probably can get it removed if you contact TSR. Others have been able to do that. Good luck!

NOOOOO!!!! Is there no end to her evil?!!?  :shock:

Not only she subjects poor unsuspecting sheeple to her recolours, but now she intend to create an army of recolourers that use her techniques!!! She is evil, evil, I say! For all that is good and beautiful in this world, she must be stopped!


Hey, come on. I know how to do hue/saturation thing, but I still haven't learned to make a real, true total flood fill.

Maybe Atwa has all kinds of wisdom to teach us all.


PS Roxelane, I hope you manage to get that recolor taken down. Did TSR respond?

Was atwa lurking in the shadows all hunchbacked and drooly?

Not weird logic at all. When someone gives you a gift, you thank them prettily and either use it or don't. You never criticize something that someone gives you freely. It's just civilized behavior.

If you are a parent or grandparent you already know this, and if you don't have children yet, you still should already know this. Why do you think so many parents have child-made ashtrays on their coffee tables when nobody smokes and all visitors have to ask "What is this?". Why do you think my refrigerator used to be covered with items made from popsicle sticks? Because my children gave them to me as gifts. Why do I have to wear the tacky Christmas Sweater Vest every Christmas? Because my menfolks gave it to me!

Why do you think re-gifting is such fun?

I also think it's important for PMBD to not be associated with the stupidity of some simmers. Lots of free creators get grief. Right now over at insim some moron (Janice12) is going after Kathy and their donation drive.

Some free stuff is crap, but that's not what we're about. Free creators are just that. Now when they ask for money for their crap, it's another story.

I read it as more of a questioning of the quality control than bashing of items (although, angelyne, you might steer better clear of pirate wrath by not including links to specific items next time ;))

I can agree that not everything is exactly top notch, but it's nice that there's a site that at least have some standards, whatever they may seem to be to some people, and the same site stays free,  and from there - it's all about encouraging budding artists that wish to learn, share and stay free, neh?

I'm glad that ya'll realize that it's only the football team, the Vikings, that actually wear horns. The real Vikings didn't ornament their helmets because that would have given too much purchase for an enemy sword to catch on and cause the person wearing the thing too much damage. Fucking Victorian twats for inventing those stories about the horns and wings on the goddamn helmets... One of my pet peeves, really. Real Vikings with horns... that's like saying that the fiercest warriors had themselves gelded because it put them in a permanantly bad mood and made them better fighters... Didn't happen... meh! Ok, I'm better now!
The only holiday wear that I will don is my Tazmanian Devil shirt that has him stomping ornaments and saying, "bah, humbug!" Love that one...

Paden, I had no idea about that since I know nothing about real vikings. Whenever I think of viking helmets, I think of a fat lady with long braids wearing one of those helmets with horns. Like this: http://www.dartmouth.edu/~german/German2/Brunhilde.JPG  :oops:

Here's some viking helmets as they looked 600-1050: http://www.densorteridder.dk/helmetdarkage.html

Yes they're very shiny, but that's because they aren't real. It's a roleplaying shop. But take it from me, NOBODY cares more about being historically accurate than sodding roleplayers.

I can't be arsed to look it up right now, but I suspect that the horned helmets were more of a formal thing, not a thing for raiding. I bet the chief had the biggest horns (phallus, anyone?)

Solander, you crack me up! ROFL (Good to see you here, by the way).

Actually I don't think the vikings wore helmets with horns. Helmets, yes. Horns, no. It's more like a myth that has turned into a stereotype that has then turned into perceived truth.

But being a descendant of vikings I know how touchy this subject is. In Denmark every time some truthseeking historian points out that vikings actually did not have horns on their helmets he becomes the subject of public hatred and rejection. We WANT horns on our fake plastic viking helmets, dammit! And no dusty professor is going to deny us that!

Uhm ... and what did this have to do with TSR??? Oh yes, they're Swedish so techically vikings too - although we all know that the Swedish vikings were the wimpy ones, don't we?  And they certainly didn't charge for custom content. :lol:

In our history rulers hired Swedish vikings as mercenaries and guards. They apparently fouded Russia and traveled all over eastern Europe. Trading in amongst other things people from the Slavic countries and thus they became slaves.

Talking about TSR being Swedish, isn't there a way to show what we think of it by gathering some Swedish simsfans for a protest outside of their office or showing our disgust in some other form? Maybe letting the Swedish media know about their copyright infrigements etc.

I don't get it. I clicked the link and saw some fugly tees. But no matter how long I look at them I can't seem to really see what they're about and why I should care.

I'm sure there's a reason, it's not a dig at you for finding it, Capn, one would just think that they'd make something that more pirates would get. How else is it supposed to sting us?

I gotta say, that's unexpected.
Hopefully, if enough people speak against it and complain they'll change it back.

It's a little strange though, because first EAxis said that paysites were illegal, and now they're supporting them? Someone's indecisive.

I think EA is just back peddled. Trying to get out of the pissing match between Paysites and places like PMBD. I really think they don't want to be in it and are trying to give paysites something, and yet not take anything from us. If they had wanted it 100% iron clad, they would have said no filesharing. Until they do, I plan on staying the course. All they have done with this change is muddied the water even more. It is a shame really, they had the opportunity to make everything crystal clear and they didn't.

You will note that the EULA that TSR is linking to is specific to their "Content Manager Tool", which is defined on the Sims2.com as:

The Sims 2 Content Manager is a simple tool that allows you to view modified content added to your game. You can then enable, disable or delete the content from this tool and have this reflected in The Sims 2 game and it's expansion packs. (http://thesims2.ea.com/help/index.php?pid=Help)

There is no part of this description that implies that this tool can be used to create anything, or that they've changed any of their older EULAs. I'll believe it when I see EULAs from the original game and expansions changed to reflect this supposed commercial content allowance. There really isn't proof of much of anything here despite all of the changes that the article implies have already happened or are about to arrive. Not to mention the fact that this EULA still says you can't sell the software.

Edit: I just saw the fansite kit bit in the other thread, but I think my comment still stands. As well, this EULA also says this "Your License is limited to the intellectual property rights in the Software and does not include any rights to other patents, trademarks, copyrights or other intellectual property owned or licensed by EA". It all seems pretty indefinite to me and like Bigtruckgirl said is really designed to avoid having to take either side. I don't think TSR should really be crowing about having absolute rights to sell as yet.

I'll believe that TRS has a right to sell when EA sends me a certified copy of a contract that they have with the rotten motherfuckers. Wish they would quit playing with their balls and figure out that the longer they fuck around with this shit, the more people are getting pissed off and actually saying to hell with them. I'm almost one of them, but.... I still like to build my little houses, have my odd families, and collect my shit to put into the game. But, like I said, until they actually have a press conference where members of rival groups, us as the good guys and TSR as the fuckwit assholes, are told exactly what is and isn't allowed, then TSR can go out and track Gypsy Moths for all I give a damn. I don't trust them and never will. And if EA caves to TSR, I will personally snap with one hand snap each and every game CD that I have made by them. (I know I can do it one-handed, did it to some porn disks of my ex-husband's that I found over the weekend in a box of my old clothing... oooooh, was I ever pissed off!)

I actually think they kicked themselves in the balls a bit with that statement in their newsletter. My first reaction, as a sheepie, would have been "Huh? EA says Charging for CC is OK? When wasn't it ok? What's this about?" One quick search on the search engine of your choice gives you a link to this: http://phorum.mustnotbenamed.com/posting.php?mode=reply&t=192, a lovely discussion including some posters here about the legality of TSR according to the EULA at that time. One of the poster's signatures links to the booty.

Anyways, it's shocking to me. They are, in effect, recognizing that the issue ever existed. This goes against their credo of censoring every single thing that has anything to do with PMBD.

What people need to do if TSR is annoying the hell out of them, which I can understand because the site is a crap-producing waste of time.. is not subscribe. Way back when, before I developed commonsense I used to use my free membership and download there for about five or six hours. The funny thing is, I never used any of it except Suzy's and it got deleted close to straight away once it got in the game. I don't like a site that wastes five or six hours of my time for no good reason.

Tell their friends not to subscribe. And every time you see someone pointing someone to TSR for a specific peice of content, you tell the person where to find the free equivalent out there in the community. The more we encourage people not to spend money at TSR, the quicker they will dissapear into the ether.

Ya know, I had no idea all of this BS was going on with TSR and MTS2 and Delphy, etc. etc. etc.

I almost wish I hadn't read any of it...

I really don't give a flying f*** what has gone on, I just kinda liked downloading stuff, intent on using it when I actually take some time to make something in game.   I hardly ever play it.

WTF is going on with the mass exodus to TSR tho?  It's like someone's promising to give the creators something for joining...I just find it so weird that so many really good creators are giving themselves up to the void that is TSR...

Anyone know why?

Yep, I do. The "mass exodus" is for one reason only: Cold, hard cash. TSR pays their FAs money based on the number of downloads, so the only reason is greed.

The whole thing with the EULA, TSR and other paysites is soooo tiring. It's easy to forget that it's just a game, in fact it kinda makes me not want to play and enjoy my game as much. Ages ago I downloaded stuff from TSR, but I deleted it all cause for the most part its crap I'm just glad I never forked out the dollars for it. I just wish it would all sort itself out one way or another, how much patience does EA think we have? jeeees.
Paysites charging for content OR memebership for sims content is outrageous. There are so many reasons why it's wrong so I don't understand why they are still being allowed to fleece people out of their money for stuff thats utter crap or has no support whatsoever.

I think I might give Sims 3 a miss, especially if this paysite debate rages on. Hopefully by then all CC will be free anyway.


I've been feeling that way lately, too. I don't want to support a gaming company that condones paysites, and with that dishonest practices paysites frequently employ i.e. sharpening previews, selling meshes that crash your game or overwrite game objects, non-existant customer service and refusals for refunds.

(It's too early to make any promises, though, I'm a whore for pretty graphics. I swore I would not get Sims2 because I had all kinds of amazing CC for Sims 1, but here I am. Sad, really. :lol:)

Alia, I know I flip flop, now that my PC is totally upgraded there would be almost nothing stopping me. I think the only thing that would make not do is if they give the greenlight to paysites, but I love what Crocoboura says here:

QUOTE=crocobaura]That, my friend, is the biggest misconception being circulated around. They did not give rights to paysites, they simply removed the right to create and distribute stuff on your own personal website./QUOTE]
As a friend i have to tell you that i think you have got that completely wrong.
Why on earth would they want to do that?




Because people started talking of personal copyrights and intellectual property in connection with EA products. The Sims francise is way too important to EA to give away to fans just like that. It's even got its own division now, so to me it looks like they want to expand and cash in profits on their own, not give it away to fans. Also, I believe the reason why they are directing you to your own attorney is because they do not want to make an official statement that personal websites are no longer officialy tolerated. This time EA acted just like a parent with his fighting cildren, took rights away from everyone for not being able to settle things calmly.

I saw that a few weeks ago, back when they were all using pirate avis (some of which contained direct reference to PMBD) and were claiming it only had to do with the pirate ship in Bon Voyage.

Then they posted that bit in their newsletter about EA saying charging for content is ok, the obvious reader response being "Wait! When wasn't it?"

All their recent actions have shown is that they are truly the idiots we all thought they were.

I clicked on the link to TS1 for Mac Discussion and it looked like a valid page of the site, but went nowhere. So I backtracked and logged into TSR directly, and discovered that someone had changed my notification preferences!!!!! I can't even find a way to contact the administrators so that I can forward a copy of this nasty email and about the unauthorized changes to my preferences. Anyone now how to do this?

I may be way off here, but does the no pirates siggy smiley represent the petition going around at the moment about people saying no to paysites.  Is TSR trying to say that piracy of their site is wrong? As much Piracy has been going on.  Well I might be putting my foot in it now  but I will stand by TSR and change my avvie asap to a pirate and if someone could please help me get that little no pirate sign in my siggy that would be great too

I agree feverish, it should be recolored to PMBD. The model would probably look much improved then.I Keep hoping for Sherry to make a sequel to her movie.

After it's put into the booty, one of the talented creators here should recolor the flag for us and upload it. Turn it into a PSMBD flag or anti TSR flag.


Personally I think we need two recolors a PMBD one for the floating ship and a TSR one for the sunk version. :twisted:

I shall download it from the booty and put it in all my kids' room(if I ever get around to actually playing kids in game).

ETA: for some reason I thought Atwat made the pirate puppet. Now, I realize it was made by Teko.  :oops:

I'm not entirely happy with it so I'm going to have another play later.

That's so cool! When you're done, will you upload it?

I'd also love it if you'd make one with the red pmbd flag at the top of the forum so I could have our ship sailing and tsr ship sinking. please?

Nope. Not happening.

I dont think its a teddy bear, like one in the game. You cant kicked them, this was hacked.

I would like the TSR recolor of the ship if the flag had an x through it..., like an additional recolor. So right before  it sinks you show TSR flag one no x, while submerged show the xed one. :lol:

For some reason, I though Atwat(which i just added to the spellcheck dictionary) made that pirate puppet which is why I was so shocked.  Now I know it was teko. Maybe TSR should stick to making pirate themed stuff to try to make us angry. hmm..

[sarcasm]TSR if you REALLY want to piss us off, you should make a driveable pirate ship. And a treasure chest floor lamp that emits light when you open it. *wink*wink*[/endsarcasm]

Yes! And a funtioning captains wheel! Boy that would just piss me off no end, TSR! And if CycloneSue made some decorative masts and stuff I'd be LIVID! I hope I NEVER see any of that stuff in the booty!

I believe the Pirate Puppet is based on the pink flamingo, which already has the kick option.

It has the shape of the garden gnome including gnome holding its arm up in salutation.  There's a kick option with the gnome if your sim is mean.  I wonder if the sims can steal the garden pirate as well.  I think it would be funny to see my sims stealing pirates.

Acquired.
Testing will follow soon.

Negative on the macro. They kick it, and stand it up with macro/garden though.
Pes, any chance you'll add it to macrotastics or tell us how to do it?

From Captain's post doesn't sound too promising. He should of cloned it to the Doll house, then it would of been breakable. OKKK guess this is promoting pirate abuse.. :evil:

OK, I'm a retard. Where is the pirate ship? I looked through the sim_man section in the TSR booty section, but duh....  I did find the cute little kickable pirate though.

I hope they stop the Pirate Theme over at TSR, it's making me so mad! If they make much more, I think I'll cry.  :lol:

Hmm, seems that the piratesstuff is there in the booty now.

I only wonder what people will thik about that stuff. They will wonder if the creators have lost the little rest of their skills. I doubt they get many downloads for that. And some will even be disappointed that Murano spends his time making cuddly pirate dolls  :lol:

I only hope Aikea will never make any pirate stuff. I so would hate it if she made some nice tees with pirates on it  :cry:

I am still dreaming of a photostory about pirates, now that we have all the stuff (even a pirate skull toilet is in upcoming on TSR) we need.  :D

For anyone else who missed twatwas artwork . It was a picture of a cartoon ship with PMBD on it in a cartoony ocean with the words Thomas The sims resource victory on it and an oversized pasted picture of a shotgun pointing at the ship, It gave me the impression that all the FAs carry guns.

and i wasn't expecting twatwa to delete half her photobucket account on my accord at least she kept the pictures of her and thomass having what she calls "fun" on the sofa with him.
 In one of the pictures the piece of red rubber looks suspiciously like some form of contreception.



I saw the pirate toilets . The pictures of the pirate urinal just look wrong
