Umm, why exactly do you need to find an MVP in threads? We boring old regular users can be helpful too. The rank icon is enough don't you think?

I'm honestly turned off at some of the comments by MVPs about this...

 

What made you an MVP to begin with? It was the ability to be a positive, contributing, and/or helpful member of this forum, correct?

And you were these things long before you got a colored name/MVP status. I'd hope that not having a colored name would not affect your ability to continue to do whatever it was you did to earn the "MVP" status.

 

The fact that you are honored with a unique icon and "MVP" status should be sufficient. But, If having a colored name is the only reason you do-what-you-do, then maybe you shouldn't be an MVP at all.

I won't stop until Sony gives me a brand new, never before seen color and recognizes me as the VP of gaming as well as the Chief Weaponologist. I'll accept Kevin Butler's old office.

Re: [FYI] Changes to the Ranking System

I said before it was my last comment but oh well here what i think

 

The MVP's are not whining for losing their red name they are simple stating their opinion  that taking out the red name was a bad decicision.The EU forum still have a way for you to know who is a MVP and a Sony employee even by a simple bold.If people got confused by who was an MVP and a Sony employee the solution to the problem was simple change the colors of the MVP's to another color because after all Red is not the only color right?

 

Having different colors help in my opinion as the person who see the posters as MVP might ask him/her something that the person with knowledge can answer.Anyone can answer question here but you get the point.Limiting the forum feature is not going to make anyone happy if more people are happy with the way it was then why bother changing? i mean after all why ask for feedback if in the end a select few will make the changes they want whatever the community likes it or not.

 

Also special ranks don't make sense now why participate in a contest when you will lose the icon and rank later at least we got a special color before but now is just simple a icon.If anything is to be learned here is that EU community management listen to their community feedback while the NA management does what they please this is all my opinion.

And they also have a special icon as well as the "PlayStation MVP" title under their name.. so I'm not sure why a colored name is any more important...

You're not wrong about that, but I was meaning colored names period. Not just red. :smileyhappy: I ran a website and we had this same issue with colored names. At first it was just staff, then it expanded to VIP members, then to clans. It got out of control and a lot of the staff complained and said that only Staff should have colors. So that happened.. then a lot of people who had a colored name (that wasn't staff) complained because they lost that "perk" -- as if it some how took away how important they were. So, I can understand where the forum management is coming from here, as well as the MVPs.

 

Having different colors help in my opinion as the person who see the posters as MVP might ask him/her something that the person with knowledge can answer.Anyone can answer question here but you get the point.

They can still do that. Taking away a colored name does not remove any of the MVPs abilities to answer people's questions, nor make their responses any less important than a non-MVP forum member.

 

Limiting the forum feature is not going to make anyone happy if more people are happy with the way it was then why bother changing? i mean after all why ask for feedback if in the end a select few will make the changes they want whatever the community likes it or not.

I could never grasp why a colored name is so more important to some people than a unique icon and title.. Is because they stick out and it makes them feel more special? -- That is what color text is for :smileyhappy:

If the MVPs keep whining about losing their red names, just make their current look with some bold. The only ones that should have a red title are Moderators. A forum shouldn't have that many colored ranks in the first place. Gets confusing and annoying.

I'm also glad that the only people with colored names are Sony employees and mods. It was starting to get a little ridiculous with all the different colors and titles, it made it tough to tell who was in charge around here.
