Why I Won’t Drop It: Holding EA and the GameChangers Accountable

Yesterday I posted on several channels wanting answers from EA about the issues surrounding DylanSimz, the GameChanger program, and a path forward.

Apparently, I touched a nerve. I was told I was being mean. I was blocked by several people. Based on the amount of angry messages I got today through various channels, people are confused by my stance on the EA GameChanger program and the situation with DylanSimz in general.

Allow me to explain. Grab some snacks, this is a long one.

I don’t want the EA GameChanger program dismantled. I understand it’s purpose. Marketing is expensive and this is a fantastic way for EA to obtain free marketing while promoting content creators. EA can keep it’s program, that’s the least of my problems.

I don’t need every single detail about what happened to the minors DylanSimz allegedly had contact with. I have enough information regarding what occurred. I wanted him out of the program and he is gone.

I wanted SimGuruKate removed and she was. I’m frustrated that she’s still part of EA but I am relieved that she will not be handling the GameChanger program so on that topic we are also square.

My main issue is: What is EA’s plan going forward? How are they going to protect our children? I want transparency and action in that matter.

I’m not asking for perfection or even an entire manifesto with every single step taken to this point. I want them to acknowledge they were wrong and that they’ve started towards a long-term solution.

I am indeed frustrated with the GameChangers. Their silence speaks volumes. Out of everyone in the community, THEY are the one who have the power to force EA to speak on this. PastelSims was the one who launched this entire process by releasing her YouTube video outing DylanSimz and the cover-up. We need more of that. We need to hold EA, the Sims community, and each other accountable in our words and actions.

I’m not letting this one go. If you feel the need to remove me from your list, that’s entirely your business. I’ve already lost dear friends because of it.

I’ve been part of this community since the beginning. 19 years now. I love this game and I love the people I’ve met because of it. I want to see it flourish and continue. But I won’t be quiet on this issue regardless of outcome. As someone who was groomed online by someone in power and was later sexually molested by that person, I will never stop fighting this fight until EA comes to this community with full transparency and a plan to prevent further harm to the children of the simmer community.

Thanks for your time. I know that was a read.

Sincerely,
Kate aka SweetPoyzin

  1. I’ve been in the sims community since 2006, but I’ve been on hiatus for awhile up until last year. I don’t follow the community all that much these days, as there’s been too much drama, but I had no idea all of this was going on and can say that I am very confused as to how I did not know this was happening. I’m appalled people are not on the same boat as you and wanting to know what happens now to prevent such a thing from happening in the future. I would think more players would want to know too.
