Then there’s the bonuses, All FA artists are eligable for the monthly bonus payments, started September 2005 up to the present day. They are forbidden to discuss the amount each one receives, and later were banned from saying who even received one, due to jealousy. The bonus range is $50 to $500, depending on the winner and the catagory. Here is the bonus thread, so you can get an understanding of how the bonus system works. After some bitching from the FA’s, the thread is now locked, but posted on every month by Tom to confirm this months bonus has been sent.
Remember all payments are illegal according to the EA Games EULA. ( Screen shots and text taken from various sims 2 sites )
