Hey guys and gals,

As you may already be aware, our MVP program is a way for us to reward active, constructive and helpful players participating on the European World of Warcraft forums. You may already be familiar with our existing MVPs: Adnaw, Lobotomy, Shammoz, Celiby, Lethan, Jito, Dalrian and Danellos.

If you’re a regular here, particularly on the General, Customer Support or Death Knight forums, it’s highly likely you’ve seen Gontier’s wonderful contributions. Due to his invaluable input and advice for fellow players, he has now ascended to the rank of MVP, which is excellent news as it means more green on our forums — and this is always a good thing :D

And for those of you who are curious...

Q. Why was the MVP Program created?

A. Members of the Community Team have often responded to questions that players can and do answer just as easily. However, at times, answers by players would go completely ignored while the original poster sought a "blue" response, not trusting what their fellows told them.

In order to solve the problem, we instituted a program that has shown great success on Blizzard's forums in the past: the MVP (Most Valuable Poster) Program. This tag next to players who have answered players' questions consistently and accurately lends a note of credibility to what they post; it allows players seeking answers to take what they say at face value

Q. What does an MVP do?

A. An MVP continues to do what they've already been doing: promoting constructive posting wherever they can. They contribute to the community and encourage polite discussion throughout the forums. When you see an MVP post, listen to what they have to say -- they were chosen for their knowledge of the game, also.

Q. Why didn't you select _____, someone who always gives great constructive feedback on X subject?

A. Please understand that MVPs are not class representatives or community representatives in that sense; they are not chosen for their ability to criticise game mechanics and give feedback. They certainly can do this (and many do). The members of the Community Team are still the vehicles through which you should submit feedback by posting on these forums. We do not have a class representative system in place at this time and would prefer to hear all players' feedback instead of a select few.

Q. Why aren't the MVPs all level 85s?

A. You do not have to have a level 85 to answer the majority of questions on these forums clearly and accurately. You do not need a level 85 to be able to direct players to the appropriate page on the website for their question, or to link to an answer already given by Blizzard. The "you must have a level 85 to post something useful" perception is largely false, and not something we wish to perpetuate. Again, this partially stems back to the idea that MVPs are in fact community representatives who are giving feedback for the playerbase, which is untrue.

Q. How can I become an MVP?

A. Keep posting constructively, answering questions about the game, and encouraging discussion (and no, that doesn't mean giving a post a title and then saying "Discuss.") throughout the forums -- we'll take notice. Following the Code of Conduct would be an important part of it, as well.

Q. Who are the current MVPs for the English EU forum?

A. The current MVPs are now:

Adnaw
Celiby
Dalrian
Danellos
Jito
Lethan
Lobotomy
Shammoz

Howdy greenie,

Big Congrats Gontier!
As you know new challenges come with that greenish tint, and since you already raid in heroic mode we need to push it a little bit, what do you think of - [Heroic: Madness of Deathwing while posting on the forums after each platform jump] ?

Grats indeed Gontier :-)

Nice to see these forums getting increasingly green with the growing number of MVPs, but will the forums ever become supergreen?
