'Champion' Rank now live

[ Edited ]
77 Replies 2,101 Views edited 03-01-2013

Hello all!

 

There is a new rank on the forums available "Champion"

It is assigned to specific Categories or Boards so that you can get an additional rank against your profile if you have proved yourself helpful in those areas.

We won't be going into detail with what metrics have been applied. They do vary between forums depending on their size and tenure.

It also gives forum users the opportunity to ask Champions for assistance as they have certainly proved their worth!

But of course, "Champion" are not official representatives of Sony of SCE, so we're not liable for what information they share :Thumbs:



The 'Champion' rank will sit underneath your Avatar like this

You need to enable it to display by selecting the following options in the 'My Settings' tab and saving. If you have not been awarded the rank, you will not see this tab :)

... They slightly gave away the "metrics" that are used though. Nobody will ever get it here, as nobody seems to know how Kudos or Accepted Solutions work. xD


Probably why we don't have any!

Haven't seen any.

 

Maybe there's too many people worthy of champion status or no-one is!

Pretty sure it isn't enabled in the Tech Help section as there's no way that nobody's got it yet!

I was positive I'd come on to see you with it Moriarty, or Mont ;P

I got that as well but I don't know why.

 

The link in the e-mail just takes you to the main profile settings page too.

Sounds like it was a bug/glitch then?

 

The wait for a EN community "Champion" continues!

Has it ever occurred to you that there may well be a few 'champions' around on the forum, but that they've chosen to no display the fact?

True.

 

Probably the same kind of person that's concerned with award status icon conflicting with beta tester icon.

I wonder who you could mean... :xRolleyes: Do you really need to have a dig at me every other day?

 

I think it's likely that some people are champions but are oblivious to the fact having missed this announcement. That or we're all not good enough for Vissy's high standards :P

I've finally found one of these buggers, not sure what he did to get the rank though.
