Hi LEFT__4__DEAD__2, 

 

It's nice to see some interest in joining the WC. What you've done by just mentioning your interest in thread is a good start. Also, check out this thread for some more information on joining. And this post by Dr. Gadget has some more links with information about the Welcoming Committee.

 

In a nutshell, we're here to greet new members, help them feel at ease in the forums, along with helping others out with any problems, forum, technical or other wise.

When it was created nearly 16 months ago it may have been, now that so many of the links are either useless, locked, or out of date, as well as the fact that the names listed as Moderation/Managers is also wrong means this needs updating, badly too.

 

P.S. Why was the other, more active 'WC' Thread locked & this one left open?

If you would like a thread/webpage to be updated then you will need to contact the author of the thread/webpage in question. There is a limit to what I can edit. This thread was essentially just a list of resources (many of which are still relevant in some fashion because of the information in them). Since our other thread didn’t immediately make its way over to the Games & Services section I have placed our Welcoming Committee Member List here and included some more information about this program.

 

Our moderators and managers change quite a bit from what I have seen. If a user would like to contact someone from SCEA in the PlayStation Forums then his/her best bet is @PSForumMods.
