What is an MVP?

 

A question frequently asked by newcomers to the community is 'What exactly is an MVP?!'

 

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 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.

 

An MVP can be distinguished on the forums by having their PSN ID's in bold and having this symbol next to their ID mvp1.png. Their profile will look like the one illustrated below.

Their Roles and Responsibilities

As an MVP, their general aim is to promote good behaviour and a positive atmosphere in the community, whether it’s in a game, on the forums or any other place where our community gathers. This may involve helping out with events and competitions (and perhaps running their own!), welcoming new members and answering questions from the community, being a referee in a game, or even to become the Easter Bunny for a day.

 

MVP are not employees of SCEE, more ambassadors for the forum/brand.


Be friendly & helpful

As MVP's, their behaviour will reflect the ethos behind the PlayStation Community and many gamers and forum members will look up to them to see what kind of behaviour is and isn’t acceptable, so they need to lead by example.

A good MVP should also be a regular participant in community events, as well as a visible contributor to the forums and, wherever possible, online games. MVPs that are particularly experienced with and knowledgeable about a particular game will often be asked to “adopt” this game; to focus on supporting it and helping out with community activities or events based around this title.

 

Who are the current MVP's?

 

The current MVP on the English Forums are:

 

TheNarrator

QuietlyWrong

englishgolfer

RenegadeXtreme

SpacySam

richard4481

Syph33r

Tassie_tiger

 

*You may see some other MVP's that are not listed above, these MVP come from different language boards and occasionally post in the English section.

 

 

OK, I think I get it, Can I see some examples of what they do?

 

Here are just a few examples of the awesome work our current batch of MVP's have come up with:

 

The Official PlayStation Community Magazine


Confessions of a Sig Noob - Design Tutorials

 

Uncharted: Mirage of Deceit - Fun Night

 

 

I like the sound of this, can I apply to become an MVP?

 

In short, no.  The Community Team are always actively monitoring the forums to distinguish any possible MVP's.  To be considered you would need to show the qualities outlined below:

 

  • Create compelling and immersive content
  • Be an outstanding member of the community

Follow these 2 guidelines and your work will no doubt be spotted by the team in no time.
