And it's no coincidence the MVP program was conceived the same month Jack Buser gave up on Home and his team was downsized (shortly after the redesign failed).

We are all MVP's and we dont need no silly title/jacket to say come to me for advice. Every Home User has the ability to be a MVP without the title, i know i hae done my fair share of helping around Home.

I will say 90% of all HCV/MVPs from past and present i have met have been in personal spaces or Clubhouses, the odd rarity did i see them in Public but most of the ones i met were very helpful if i had any questions.

Jack was still director of Home. Cade was leading up the MVP program and Paul was being brought along as he was still pretty new coming from moderation.

Jack went from Director of PlayStation Home to Senior Director, PlayStation Digital Platforms and now is Senior Director, PlayStation Now at SCEA. Why don't you use your Main account?! Ugh. Done.

In all my years on home I've never seen one or encountered one.
But I have seen plenty pictures of them here all crowded next to one another displaying their beacons within their own group. As if their own group wasn't already aware they were as such already.

Let me put on the beacon for our group photo opp. :smileyhappy:
Other than that.. Nope. Nada. The forums are proof of how useless and how much benefit the public gets from their so called helping hands. How they love the attention having such icon next to their id. .

Every MVP I ran into was a degenerate in some way or another.

There is no presence if you're not reprensenting. If you're not sporting the gear, than you're just another user. You're right, it's not required. The fact is, once the honeymoon phase is over, most don't, therefore, no presence.
This seems to be a double edged sword.  There is criticism that one shouldn't be a MVP because they don't play games and only use Home.  Then there is criticism that we aren't visible enough, because at times we wish to play other games.  So what is it?

The answer is obvious, if you're reffering to being an MVP in general. If the only reason you have a PS3 is for Home than you shouldn't be one.

What is an MVP?

An MVP is a regular and dedicated PlayStation user that helps to support PlayStation Network by playing proactive roles during events, generating useful resources for the community, and providing feedback to PlayStation from their perspective as engaged gamers on PSN.

Personally, I've found watching from the sidelines to be a bit more effective and discretely PMing when necessary.  The jacket (and most definitely beacon) often attract negative energy.  I still wear it at times, but I may choose to help those around me without the label. 

This comment right here only validates what people have been saying. If you're helping people without the jacket and beacon, then is there really a need for it? I think not. Is there a need for the program itself? No.

 

By trying to defend the program, you actaully confirmed how worthless the program is. Not one person on here made a valid argument for the justification of the program. People can try to defend it all they want, but the reality is, you can't defend the obvious.

 

Afterall, the program is more largely involved than just the Home section.  MVPs don't "hide" in the private forum all day.  There are actual tasks at hand and a purpose.

 

Let's not confuse the two. The topic at hand is MVP/Guides, not MVP's in general. If it doesn't involve Home, than it's irrelevant to this thread.

I just want to say that there are helpful MVP's and to critizize them all is an insult to the good ones. I cant remember them all but Thew, lil Blue eyes, Stephie Rawks and others have helped me before.  So lets remember that in everything there is good and bad but cant negate good because of a few bad apples.

When I was a MVP/HCV I would help anyone that needed it....I would check the forums looking for people who needed tours and had questions...I loved helping others and seeing people enjoy themselves on Home

Actually I did like the way the icon looked that they used to wear.  But after seeing how much abuse that conrad max took at Godfathers space I can see that maybe it is a magnet for abuse.  I will give him credit for remaining stoic among the abuse.  For a while you could count on seeing him there every day. This was in the old days lol.
