[ANNOUNCEMENT] HCVs --> MVPs!

598 replies 2041 views Edited Mar 11, 2013

Hey Home Community,

 

I know you've been wondering what we've been doing with the Home Community Volunteer program, so let me share the news!

 

PlayStation has had a very strong initiative to increase "community" involvement across the board, partially due to Locust_Star's and my very positive impact on Home over the years. The MVP program was another, similar program that has existed on the forums exclusively for years as well, and now that we're all focusing on Community in a bigger, more powerful way, it made sense to combine these two amazing programs. 

 

PS_CommunityForum_AppLogo1.pngSo starting today, the two are being rolled into one—PlayStation MVPs. Let me quell any concern about the HCV program being slighted in this way, because the MVP title was chosen between the two because it is simply a broader term. The Home-specializing folks will continue as such, with no change in expectations or activities, they'll just change title. In Home, they'll still rock the "GUIDE" icons and hoodies, because they still are. But in the essence of building something greater than either of the two separate programs, we're combining their forces so we can do bigger and better things.

 

Look for new members to join the ranks very shortly too. It's going to get really exciting.

And so goes the phasing out of Home...?

 

That's the message you're sending, at least.

This MVP program has been in the works for a very long time. Home Guides are still doing their thing same as before. No phasing plans. no.

The irony here is, I liked the blue names, lol.

Home isn't  being phased out. We are simply being merged with the MVPs to work alongside them. The HCVs will continue to be on Home but with a new name, is all.
