    Great way to generate interest where there was none.
    This and the wedding challenge work really well in trying to get people interested in this new concept. But yeah this competition/reward system isn't doing it for me.

    Not for me too. I find the whole idea hideous at least. Anyway, people that like to create challenges may be interested in this 'job position'. Maybe this is the only ppositive for players, even if it's so specific.

    I'm curious how much their paying them. Probably barely anything since EA loves free volunteers. Just look at how much work the Gamechangers do for advertising the game, and all they get are packs for the game.
    And I can't even think of interesting challenges for the Sims 4. Not enough gameplay.

    Interesting. Good opportunity for someone trying to get a foot in the door.

    That's wonderful it really is. I hope some creative, talented, energetic, and positive member of the simming community can get this job. I know a lot are going to talk bad about it but I'm really proud of what's going on as a simmer in general.. and so pleased that people that actually play the game can have a chance at what sounds like a great life experience and career opportunity.

    Why does EA need to hire anyone to come up with challenges? Don't they already have a sea of regular players who could summit ideas that might appeal to the general public of players? Or is it because EA/Maxis wants to control what type of challenges and or ideas they come up with rather than votes from acutal players who would decide which challenges they would like to see? I think I know the answer to that question.

    Surprised they would bother paying to hire someone.... they normally just steal ideas of their playerbase

    It's the same reason why they started the Game Changers program. They said it is supposed to be a project to help EA interact with the community more and choose people to provide feedback and "change" the game, fast forward to now and Game Changers have become walking living and most importantly free advertisments.

    How about a challenge where I count the number of bugs I can catch in a 1 hour gaming session? Not much of a challenge though :D:D

    sorry I couldn't resist

    Wow, this is interesting. I actually have employment but it's very interesting. Maybe there are ways to get involved even part-time.
