The MVP program utilizing customers as employees.


Future conflicts can now push blame on unemployed consumer's with issues instead of where it belongs.

We all have tasted the art of two-dimensional personality in the forums.

 

If this is future trend for community involvement on the PS4, it shows no vision.

 

Feeding the conscious and unconscious self-esteem of the gamer with the MVP program darkens the community by segregation, not only from each other, but from the individuals gaming experience itself.

 

It's no more or less than a twisted mental front for a unethical professional business model that displays inadequate funding, desperation and no insight.

 

Plague the community with the responsibility of business at the cost of the individuals gaming experience.

 

Welcome to the future.

 

My last post on this topic.


they arent employees, they are volunteers who do nothing more than help out in various areas.


You mean they aren't PAID employees. Volunteers are also "employed" by companies, and this was Stonestone's point -- or one of them. His other points are that this practice is unethical and that the program promotes segregation -- which has been one of my points all along also.


you people are too much. :smileyvery-happy:

So why are these other posters participating for a home related thread. and want to partake in the community now that this discussion is all about their newfound MVP Rank.


And that is why people outside of the Home forums find this "community" so snobbish and full of whiners lol.  I can't believe he's saying  "I spend X amount of money on home, I deserve to be an MVP".  Most Home people wouldn't even be caught dead in any other forum outside the Home section...

:^/ Well, would we prefer that these positions were filled with hired staff with great expertise in organizing events, but who play video games seldomly, if at all? Or would it be preferable if the roster were filled with actual example samples of the gaming population at large? Which group would better represent the views of regular customers like you and me?

 

Personally, I'd prefer the latter of the two.

 

Also consider that instead of viewing this as using volunteers to reduce the cost of a given sized staff, Sony is mazimizing the staff within their fixed budget by adding volunteers. Hospitals and other charities do this. Politcal campaigns do this. Why is it evil when a company does it?

 

Or do we distrust the volunteer to be clever enough to decide for himself whether he wishes to share his free time?
