Welcome to our forum!
For all users who are accustomed to the old forum or are joining us for the first time, you probably have a few questions about your account, avatars, old forum names and signatures.
Please note that this FAQ is a work in progress, and we hope that with your help this document will grow over time. If you have any comments or questions about this document please post them here and we will integrate the best community tips.

How do I change my avatar?
The icon that is displayed below your name next to your posts (also known as an avatar) is a way to give your posts a bit of personality. When you first log in, an icon will be assigned to you by default, but you can change it to something you find more suitable.

Private messenger allows you to send personal messages to other members of the forum. Private messenger has two major advantages over e-mail: You do not need the e-mail address of the other member to be able to send the message and nobody needs to know yours.
If you want to use private messenger, you must have an account and be logged in. If you are logged in, the Private Messenger link will appear on the top right-hand corner of your page. If you have any new private messages, then the link will appear next to a yellow envelope and the number of new messages in your inbox.
Clicking on the envelope will open your messages folder in a pop-up window.
Who/ what are Beta testers and MVP's?
Beta testers have the privilege of being invited to play some games before they are released. The reason for this is not only for enjoyment, but also so that the game is tested rigorously. A Beta tester is required to test each component of an online title and give their feedback to SCEE.
Information about becoming involved in the Beta test group is posted here. At present we are not recruiting for new Betas, but when we do this is where the information will be posted.
MVPs are our “Most Valued PlayStationers” – members of the PlayStation community who have helped make our world an enjoyable and interesting place to be by being friendly, helpful and a generally decent folk. MVPs are representative of the ethos and atmosphere of the PlayStation community, and are there to encourage good behaviour and a fun vibe. In addition to this, MVPs run the ever popular MVP Fun Nights which will be advertised in the Forums.
We have a monthly list of all events created by the MVPs and Lestrade. These events are accessible to everyone and often there are prizes to win like games, artwork and PlayStation goodies
Not all the questions you will have will be answered in this FAQ.
