Here is a minor TSR drama I have been following for a while now, I have not published this earlier as I was interested to see how this one panned out without any of those involved using this blog as an excuse for their actions either way.
This started when we noticed Atwa had made yet another new account, this time under the name of JenniferNine.
Within just a few weeks Tom suggested her for SA. everyone, even the ones unaware of her real identity, thought this was strange as Jennifer was so new to TSR and her work was, quite frankly, awful. It consisted of mainly paintings, and later, as featured in her blog and gallery, a rather odd looking dead giant bat nailed to a wall. She was clearly no where near the standard for SA, and yet Tom was suddenly hinting that FA was on the cards soon. It very quickly came out that everyone knew what he was up to, although to be honest no one knows why he continues to do this. But to say the MODS and other staff felt very let down by his actions would be an understatement. If this continued, it was made clear that TSR would soon have a sudden staff and artist shortage.
It was thought that Tom would have let her know that the game was up for now, but no, Atwa was still boasting to her ‘friends’ that she was going to be FA again very soon and that she was now very popular on TSR again, and how members could not wait to get her creations into their game. She said that Tom and Johan had arranged the whole thing for her.
When her submission was not approved on the night she submitted it, she complained in her blog, and whined to her friends that the people waiting for her creations now had to wait a full weekend because of Kaths slowness.
Her submissions were not going to be approved, but instead of telling her that, she says Tom assured her that the slowness was down to the server problems TSR was experiencing and they would be approved soon. We can only guess he was playing for time. 5 days later, she was not happy and Tom still had not told her the truth.
By the 27th she was getting more impatient, but according to Atwa, Tom was still reassuring her everything was OK, but she was telling her friends she was suspicious of the ‘evil witches’ Kath and Tug.
She then went on to spam the TSR forums, and PM boxes with complaints.
Back to the blog, and she starts to doubt Tom, she has done her own detective work and saw that other creations were being approved before hers. Still Tom hides his head in the sand, despite spending, according to Anita, ‘hours on the phone’ reassuring her that he will sort this out.
5 days ago Atwa/Jennifers account got deleted, and Atwa was foaming at the mouth. She said she has been on the phone all morning to Tom, who blamed Tug and Kath. She says she wrote to Tug and Kath demanding to know why and Tug reacted to this by ‘purging’ her from the forum She has told everyone that they both acted behind Toms back, and “who the hell do they think they are”. She said that they are both in deep trouble because Tom gave her permission to have the account and the last time she checked, Tom and Steve were the owners of TSR and not Tug and Kath! She says that Tom will restore her account soon and Tug and Kath will ‘wish they had not been born’.
5 days have passed, and Tug and Kath seem very happy in their jobs and Atwa’s account was not restored.
She also said that TSR needed her as it was her still her job to sort out all the bug issues on the site and there was no way Tom would let her go as she was far too valuable to them.
That job has now been given to Illiana.
Now it gets interesting, Atwa’s account was subjected to further tampering, if we go back and look at her last blog entry, her name has suddenly changed to ‘MadMadge’ and the colors have been changed.
A search of this member brings up 46 downloads appearing to date back to 2005 http://www.thesimsresource.com/downloads/browse/category/sims2/search/madmadge
and one screenshot http://www.thesimsresource.com/screenshots/browse/search/madmadge
Here is a screencap for when they inevitably delete these links
So who is MadMadge? none of these downloads have been used on any of Atwa’s known accounts and ‘MadMadge’ has no actual account.
Atwa still blames Kath and Tug who are, in her opinion, jealous of her to the point of stalking. She claims Tom told her they have some sort of tracker on her IP and she is going to report them to the police for stalking and harassment!
She claims none of this was her fault, in fact I and my ‘team of hackers’ ( more of that story to follow ) broke into her private Emails and screencapped/gained information from them, so it is all ‘our’ fault! Of course I have not broken into anyone’s Email and I do not have a team of hackers, but if you can imagine for one minute that her lies were true, she is overlooking the fact that those Emails exist by her own admission, and even if she can get people to believe every person who has ever argued with her has hacked her, It still does not excuse the fact she said those things and sent those Emails out. ( To a few too many people as it turned out! )
The real questions revolve around Toms inability to be honest with anyone. He lied to all the Staff and he lied to Atwa, Just how far will he go to bring her back, and more importantly, why?
How long will it be before the Mad Jenitwa returns? Stay tuned and find out..
