Say Hi to your Most Valuable PlayStationers

111 Replies 5,831 Views Created 20-10-2006
Another announcement already? Oh yes. In fact today marks the start of a new era in the PlayStation Community.

I am very pleased to announce to you a scheme which allows us to recognise those individuals in our community who make exceptional contributions on a regular basis.

Up until today we have had a small group of online gamers called “Central Station Volunteers”. They have all put loads of effort during the past 3 years into helping us run events and grow the PlayStation Community. Now is the time to expand on their excellent contribution and broaden our horizons a little. The first thing we are going to do is rename all our current CSVs and give them unique profiles here on the forums. This way you will always know when you are chatting to or being helped by one of them.

So, what is a Most Valuable PlayStationer?

“Most Valued PlayStationers” are members of the PlayStation community who have helped make our world an enjoyable and interesting place to be by being friendly, helpful and generally decent folk. To other members, MVPs are representative of the ethos and atmosphere of the PlayStation community, and are there to encourage good behaviour and a fun vibe.

What do they do?

They are the guiding lights of the PlayStation Community; they are fun, polite and helpful members of these forums and or the PlayStation supported online games. They will help us in the Community Team run events in game as well as offer help and assistance to all forum members.

Where do I apply?

Put simply, you don’t. MVP membership is by invite only. There will not be many of you, so don’t expect to be invited on the strength of a couple of helpful posts. What we want is the cream of the online community; The sort of people who everyone can rely on to give good help, advice and be polite and patient all of the time.

How do I recognise an MVP?

MVPs will look slightly different to other members of the forums. Their username will appear in dark blue and, from Monday, they’ll have an icon () next to their username in threads, posts and their profiles to make sure that they're easily recognisable.

What changes will you see as users?

While we are settling in the major difference you will see is an increase in the number of events being run in PlayStation Supported online games. Keep a close eye on the public calendar (click on ‘calendar’ in the menu bar at the top of the page) and also check out the “Announcements & Events” forum for updates and event information.

So Who are they?
The Current list of PlayStation MVPs is being put together as you read this; I will edit this thread with details of who they are during the course of next week.

What MVPs are going to do sounds like what a lot of forumers on here do already (besides the running events).

wow, that sounds cool, i saw some people from Netherlands with blue-ish tints to their names, was that them? i thought my PC was playing up! or my eyes. or both, but they would cancel each other out. hopefully anyway.

although, in theory, isnt every Playstationer a Valued Playstationer ;) ah well.

Question: The badge (this) will be on the selected fews profiles or whatever but does'nt that give them a way of degrading us? (a bit like the ranking system did on the old forums).

If any person has that badge next to their name, then they are the type of person who would never stoop to degrading any of their fellow forumers.
If they did, then the babge would disappear pretty quickly! All the Current MVPs are a lovely bunch of people, and top notch gamers to boot.
During the course of next week, I am sure you will all be bumping into them, in various parts of the forum. :)
