The Creators camp at Redwood Shores kicks off today. ( January 12th to 16th 2009 )
As previously reported at P.M.B.D by Calalily, TSR have handed out invites to the staff for this event. EA will cover the cost of return flights to CA, from anywhere around the world, 6 nights at a hotel and food and drink is all inclusive. EA will be interviewing the FA’s, and showcasing TSR and the FA content during the game launch. FA’s will also be invited to create some content for the sims 3 game.
Atwa had been invited and her friend tdyannd was also invited to provide company for her, as no one else would speak to her. The FA’s caused an uproar at Atwas inappropriate invite, and no one wanted her there, so her invite has now been withdrawn by Steve and she was replaced. Ironically, her companion tdyannd is still invited! Atwa was loudly protesting against her invite, on the grounds that she is not FA, staff or even SA, but she was unable to get it withdrawn due to reasons unknown to Atwa.
Atwa caused such a stink that Steve and the other staff felt she was now a risk to the launch of V7 and the TSR reputation, and coupling that with the fact that she was no longer needed to work on this completed project, she was fired before the launch and her account was deleted the same day as Tom gave her a minisite. Steve says she is not welcome back at anytime, The FA’s and other staff threw a party and are adamant she’s gone for good, but Atwa claims that Tom has told her she can return again in a couple of months when the dust settles and there is a job for her ‘within the sims 3 area’ We will have to wait and see who’s telling the truth this time.
The final list of the 8 TSR representatives are as follows:

Steve has now decided to blog the creators names and some of the weeks events. The names were to remain secret for the rest of the week with Steve just blogging himself, but he suddenly seems to have had a change of plan now that the names are out.
He is still remaining tight lipped about Harmonia’s sudden departure from FA. ( Now reinstated )
