The steps are going to be key!

Commuinty Reconstruction Plan

Step 1 - Rebuild, This is going to require patience from the users, and require the mind set of the workers to fix it and fix it to last not fall apart! find the cause of the error messages ad id how to keep them from appearing again. However before the rebuliding process begins there needs to be multiple messages through out PlayStation®Home informing users of the rebuilding to come and give them a estimated date and time as to when it is expected to begin and end.

Step 2 - Advancement, after PlayStation®Home has completed the rebuilding process make sure the community stays stable. I would suggest that there be information boards placed in every space, describing the space and all that it has to offer! I noticed there was something like a information board in the casino. Continue to make the community fun and entertaining, everybody likes to have fun and feel apart of something!

Step 3 - Inform, anytime anything is happening that will effect the users gameplay inform them with multiple messages through out PlayStation®Home like a newspaper, inform people of who, what, or is the biggest topics in PlayStation®Home!

Step 4 - Inforce, in the spaces that are more violent prone is where the Moderators should be most of the time, also if there is a gang or group that is a threat to the community then the proper inforcement should be placed on the Managers of  PlayStation®Home, if Moderators are reciving complaints about a paticular group or gang in  PlayStation®Home then it should be relayed to the Managers to decide the punishment. you can handle one bug, but a infestation is for the exterminator!

Step 5 - Involvement, all Moderators need to be seen in PlayStation®Home, all Managers need to be seen in PlayStation®Home. I know that they rarely make appearences because of so called "favortism" the reason "favortism" is brought up is because the only pictures or images of them is with the higher class of people, Moderators and Managers understand that you are the leader EVERYBODY in this community depends on you all to keep PlayStation®Home fun and enjoyable. Next time your in a space say hey to member of our community take a picture show everybody that, that user is just as important as the higher class user!

I do belive that PlayStation®Home can go above and beyond by living by these 5 steps! I am here to help this community and will do all I can to help it!

Thank you!

I'll just reply to your step 5 just to say time. The moderators are constantly in Home and I have met a lot of them. They are usually invisible so you don't notice them. The managers are usually busy, so if you don't see them often, they are busy. The main reason I believe you mainly see them with forum posters is because forum posters are usually some of the most dedicated Home users that attend every community event and are always on Home. The "regular" Home user is someone that comes on Home maybe once or twice a week.

Thats not true..I know tons of "regular' home users that have not EVER seen a mod.

Now see this clearly shows that there is a growing division, ask around in home to random people and see how many times theyve seen a mod and I'll promise you its nowhere near the numbers youve just suggested.

And where is it defined that a regular user spends minimal amounts of time here ?

In fact a regular user tends to be on a bit more than the average user.

reg·u·lar/ˈregyələr/

Adjective:
Arranged in or constituting a constant or definite pattern, esp. with the same space between individual instances.

Noun:
A regular customer or member, for example of a bar, store, or team.

It depends on your definition of a regular and an average Home user to be honest. Mine is different than yours clearly.

Thats fair enough...but I encourage you to ask randomly how many people have actually seen a mod in Home..and you'll be surprised. And many of the people will most likely be everyday average home users also

This is more of a Sony thing but they should add Playstation Home to the list of games when you want to file a complaint against someone. Or make it so Home users show up in your players met list and add a report function to the players met list.

WOW! Reading this posting really upset me! You don't have to bring up your views, as what you say between the lines and with intonation says it all! It is my opinion that you have had issues with Home in general for quite some time and that is probably why you left for a year. Now, you're coming back thinking that things may have taken a different direction and come around to more of "your thinking." Problem with that is that your thinking seems to be a bit flawed.

I have also been on Home for more than 3 years now and I started off totally ignorant of how anything works in Home or how to find out how anything works. I took the INICITIVE to talk to other people in Home and to listen. I asked questions, and within the XMB I found out that there was a website and blog available. Nobody handed the information to me. Now, I get that it would be nice to have the information "right in my face" as I walked into Home for the first time, maybe, but I also thought it was nice that I was treated as a intelligent and capable human being. Meaning, that I could do a small bit of asking questions and deducing from those answers where I needed to look to find further information I wanted.

I am sooo tired of people complaining about the  "popular party" or "privlaged few!" I can see how they would feel that way if they were sitting around waiting for everything to be handed to them on a platter. I consider myself a run-of-the-mill average Home user or an "average person" in Home! But I can still figure out that those that seem more "in the know" or "privlaged" in Home, are generally the ones that are working their butts off behind the scenes in Home and doing more for this community to improve it, or getting things done that benefit us ALL! They spend more time behind the scenes in Home then they are EVER given credit for; and they are passionate about Home!

Since you haven't been in Home for a while maybe you don't know about groups of "popular party" that are now volunteering with their own free time to have times IN HOME where they meet and greet people to try and help them out. They answer questions and help to provide individulized support for EVERYONE in Home! Those "popular party" are the ones that are out there in Home creating websites like HSM, YPSH, Alphazone4, etc., etc.,ON THEIR OWN TIME AND DIME, to provide FREE information to ALL Home user's about all kinds of topics!! From where to find rewards and how to find them, to what's coming up next, how to find something to do or where to go to have fun. They are creating informative articles on TONS of different subjects withtin Home to help and support this community! Can you even imagine how much time (and talent) it must take for these people to find the time to write articles several times a WEEK OR DAY? Or to create a film for us all to enjoy in the theatre's? Or a talk show that helps to inform us of new games coming out?

No, I'm just an ordinary Home user, just like you. I'm not in the popular crowd. I've never written an article or produced a film or been on a radio show in Home or for Home. But, I can still imagine how much time and dedication it takes for those "popular/"in the know" people," to accomplish what they do for OUR community. And they deserve to be thanked, supported, appreciated for that! Not rediculed and "boo-hoo'd" and given bouts of immature jealousy. Instead of taking the time to be upset about those "popular few," why don't you spend that time volunteering to write an article or help out with a fashion show or work as an actor in a skit!? Do something to show that you support Home and everyone in it. Participate!! Then, you might find yourself being a part of a Home supportive, productive, more "Popular group."

SHAME ON YOU!

I've been on home (mostly playing pool til the recent changes) for 3 1/2 yrs. On average I would say I've been on 5-6 days a week for 4-5 hours at a time. I have actually "seen" a mod once and that was in the EU version of Home. I've seen "mod text" in the chat box perhaps 5-6x. I've yet to ever see a manager. HCV's, I've encountered perhaps 6-8x.

Do I qualify as a "regular" Home user?

Re: PlayStation®Home After 3 Years!

Home is its own completely seperate entity, and fifedom.  Numerous people have tried calling Sony support about Home issues, and the answer they get, is they don't cover Home.  Its a closed loop managed system, that runs on the PSN , SEN, or whatever the initials are now.  The NA home team and the Core team, dont communicte effectively with eachother, and neither bother communicating much on their own forum, they twit board and book faces, some of which are found and translated by users, and posted here is how most of the info we do get even makes it in the door here to begin with.

I posed the question, do the error reports post freezing and hard shut down, help Home determine the cause.  It was locked, I reposted it, and a mod replied no, and reffered me off the home forums with the question, and locked it.

This has turned into a economic post, rather than a time for change post. Its clear that my message has no value on these forums, but in the community it may so have a blessed time and God Bless you all!
