I have no idea what's going on. When I'm logged in, I can see it all, but when I log out, it's only the magnet. I've put in a help ticket... stay tuned.

It had everything to do with ratings - I'd put a higher-than-G rating on the items, as they're for a rated T game; unfortunately, unless you specifically say you want to see stuff rated PG-13 or R, you can't see them.  Everything's G-rated now... so everyone should be able to see it all. Sorry for the inconvenience.

The Zazzle store is now open!

Please note that we have priced everything with an aggressive markup to get a few bucks off each sale - for the good of the order, of course.

A sampling of the items for sale:
















Please note that these items are customizeable - color, shirt/mug design, etc. If you want a design on something that isn't set up (like the FFS on a sticker, for example), please make note of it here and we'll get it set up at Zazzle. Zazzle isn't great about letting Joe User customize across product types, only within product types.

Thanks again Kicks and stomps to BastDawn for managing the contest portion of this project!
6  The Pirate Ship / ARR! / Re: Habitat43 News! Sharing Information! on: 2008 September 17, 01:15:37
Guys, I had this information quite a WHILE ago, but there was nothing actionable on it. Until now.

If you want to yell at someone, yell at me. Coconut has always been forthright and has told as much as she can here. I have done the best I know to do with the information given. It's not about her getting glory or me withholding anything. We act as we need to/can.

Now can everyone take a big girl pill?
7  The Pirate Ship / ARR! / Re: Habitat43 News! Sharing Information! on: 2008 September 16, 21:13:57
Yes, I will be doing that now.

I'm apalled and shocked. I mean, we always suspected the info sharing, but now we have hard evidence that it's being done out in the open. They're pretty ballsy.

It's like the Hotel California - "you can check out any time you like but you can't ever leave."

Here is something interesting. I accessed my TSR account today, and I got the message that 24 items had been rejected.  I checked the submissions, and found that 3 sets I had done based on one of Atwa's meshes were not allowed on the site anymore. Here is what it said:

"Modern Living Pine Set
Modern Living Ebony Set
Modern Living White Set

Subnitted: Sep 22, 2007     
Reason: I'm sorry to say that we will not be able to accept your sets as they are based on meshes that have now been removed from our site. The original meshes have been removed due to the creator having multiple accounts."


Kinda funny to me. No biggie, I removed them. But interesting to say the least!  Smiley


Hmm. We have her stuff stored; I think I'm going to send them to the Graveyard. Smiley

Not sure how I missed this thread! Gah, I need to pay better attention.

Thanks, re: Fallingwater.

Hotlinking is discussed in the FAQ.

Sims2Play has the sharpest color choices....I totally love her work.

When DON'T Nouk and Helga pwn Rose, Raon, and Peggy?

Marilu is by far the least talented of the Teutonic Twats. Makes me wonder if Birgit, Teko, Sasilia, and Steffor let her tag along like an annoying younger sister. S2P and Simply Styling PWN the Twats every day of the week and twice on Sundays.

I don't know what The Hunger is, and I'm pretty sure that it's okay if I never know.

Chaz and Jirka... um... yeah. You know how I feel about them.

I don't have pics at the moment, but I'll pit Lethe's pagan wares against the shit that Sims Connection sells.
11  The Pirate Ship / ARR! / Re: Poor Atwat.... on: 2008 August 04, 14:41:53
We do. Simtomatic was close to quitting a while back when Anita was pulling all her shit as "Atwa". Simtomatic didn't leave, however, because "Atwa" was fired. She didn't know, of course, that we had all been lied to, and Anita had created Beasims, which was to be fastracked to FA, with Anita still being paid for some job or another. When all this came to light, Simtomatic said "oh, no, not again" and put in her resignation. Apparently she made it crystal clear that Anita is the SOLE REASON she has left. (The EffieB stuff came out after Simtomatic resigned...but how interesting, eh?)


Edited to clarify.

Does this mean Coconut is the new popcorn, the way Jelenedra is the new gay? Smiley

I should have mentioned it was Steve who locked all Anitas accounts, They are still locked despite Toms pleas.

Thanks for this.  This is a really important bit of information and combined with what Aikea posted, gives a fairly clear picture of what is going on behind the scenes.  This is what I see anyway:

  • Anita has been running things as she sees fit, up to and including choosing SA's, helping choose FA's, and the now exposed raffle draws
  • Because of her power grabs, she has made enemies with many of the FA's, SA's and with the mods-both on the site and on the forums
  • Many extremely talented SA's and FA's have left directly due to the way anita has treated them whenever she feels the least threatened-even if that threat is in her own mind. This has resulted in at least two sites that are in direct competition to TSR and they are free.
  • In response to her bad press, she was forced to resign as FA, and eventually step down as SA AM
  • Publically, she let the Atwa persona drop and became Beasims, with the promise of regaining her old status
  • Somewhere in here, Tug finally banned her (as Atwa) from the forums and was forced by thomas to reinstate her
  • Beasims was exposed and she became yet another screen name with the same promise as above, which was also exposed
  • She created a possible one or two more personas that went on a rampage around the forum in people's guestbooks
  • She has some kind of hold on thomas, either personal or professional, that keeps him from canning her and allows her to continue to try to become the second in command at TSR
  • Steve finally took steps to lock down all her personas and will not budge

So, this basically tells us that anita has got the entire site against her with the exception of Thomas and possibly one or two FA's that she has not managed to alienate.  Yet.  This also tells us that thomas's partners are beginning to become fed up with her increasingly unhinged behavior, as I am sure Steve is not alone in his disgust.  The mods and steve are now at odds with thomas and that could, indeed, spell serious trouble at TSR.  I would like to see what Per thinks of this whole thing.  One fairly insignificant creator has managed almost single-handedly to drive away some of the best talent TSR has, drive a wedge into a partnership that has existed for years, possibly expose them to raffle fraud and cause MORE, not less pirates to migrate to PMBD.  All in all, anita has been the best thing to ever happen to PMBD. 

I am impressed.  I say we make anita an honorary pirate.  She has done much for the cause.


A great summary, Tomato. But an honorary pirate? Um.... how about we just tie her to the masthead and let the enemy use her for target practice? (Oh oh! We can send her quail hunting with Dick Cheney!) But I digress.

Regarding Simtomatic: I was under the impression that she put in her resignation on Friday; was there nothing on her guestbook to signal her goodbyes? (BTW: We'll be keeping Simtomatic's stuff available in the booty until she's got it all released at Natural Sims. If Thomas 'frees' her, we'll move her stuff to retired artists until Natural's got her covered.)

Thanks for the link. I'll add it to the FAQ, for when people come here looking for TS1 booty.
