Hey everyone,

 

You may have noticed a difference in how our ranking system is displayed. We've adjusted all ranks to better indicate roles and responsibilities to community members and help them easily identify official voices.  

 

Blue titles indicate a first or third party official representative, which you will be able to further distinguish by the icon. Sony employees and our Worldwide Studios developers have the PlayStation logo, while the icon for our third party partners like CCP and Bungie are displayed with the outline of person with a verified check mark. Moderators are now the only team to have red font, and they have a new chat bubble icon as well.

 

Because we are reserving bolded, colored names for officials, this means that special ranks for users have lost their color/bold, but the rank title and icon will remain.

 

We understand that these modifications may take a moment to get used to, but we think that overall it will be a positive change.

 

Thanks,

Kristine


thats what was said about the last few forum changes. and while everyone has had to just deal with them, they were by no means and still are not positive changes.

 

whoever are in charge of the forums are missing the whole "community" aspect.

if you keep limiting the community and removing the charm of the forums youre just going to wind up with a sterile mess of a message board.

 

first they do away with unique avatars, which the EU forums still have.

then they do away with 90% of the unique sub-forums, which the EU forums still have a lot of.

then tey do away with unique color names.

whats next? uniforms?


This is starting to feel like Jive all over again. Remember that fiasco? The number of posters that left in disgust? Sterilizing the community, stripping away its identity and more members will leave. We lost a lot of great people and will lose even more.


it could just be the nostalgia of us old-timers. this is the second time colored ranks have been taken away from us and the second time we have gotten a half-assed reason for doing so.

 

tired of seeing the forums take 1 step forward and 2 steps back.

its not just the removal of all color ranks, thats just 1 of many issues that have happened as of late. hell, ive still got a bag of rage from that forum merge/removal thing from a few months ago.

now i'm confused what "legal" things there possibly could be.


You'd be surprised!

 

Safe to say & to confirm what Papa has already said, there is a lot more to this than just you guys seeing us 'moaning' & '**bleep**' about losing the color red!
