Hello everyone,

 

May I suggest that an easy to follow process be put in place on how Moderators choose solutions when the author of the topic has not chosen one within a specified time.

 

Think this would help the MODs

This is entirely at the descretion of moderators, Public Mobile staff, and Oracles.

Re: Top Contributors - April 2020

@computergeek541, i also like to add that by removing the names on the list is also a privacy act as well. Some people don't like their names posted, even though, it's a tag name, some people believe it still an invasion of privacy.

 

I do agree with you on the leaderboard, it leads to who can get the most bravos in a short period of time, and one can check if they can get more than the next person. A couple of weeks ago, I decided to step back from it all because I didn't see any value of it all. 

I have noticed a change that there aren't as many bravoes going around as before. But, that could be because the new people have been told otherwise, but, you'll always get new people trying to beat the system.

With the removal of the names of the top contributors, this annoucement is a contentless form letter. Further, Public Mobile has actually asked for the opinion about such stuff. My opinion is certainly not the only one, but many do share it. The annoucement emphasizes the numbers game which isn't what helps members, and based on that, the quality of the content in this Community has severely degraded with repetitive and often incorrect answers in a race to repond first and as many times as possible.


We definitely agree that this thread as it is now is contentless...but rather than dissuade having this thread, that is why I and others advocate to restore the list of monikers of top earners. Otherwise, the "shout out" by PM are just empty words, like this thread.

 

As for the content of the forum replies, it is always a tough balance of how you encourage participation without degrading quality. Whatever the incentive provided, there will always be some that will try to push the limits. The only alternative to eliminate that is to eliminate incentives. But then that undermines one of PM's objectives to building an active community.

 

Especially in the context of COVID-19, though not exclusively, the Bravofest, as someone put it, achieves a small sense of connection and that participation PM seeks. And if there is any reward associated with it, not only is any one's earning relative, it results in extremely small rewards, like a grocery store coupon or two. So it really does not matter.

 

Anyway, there is lots of evidence that simply removing this thread will not have much of an impact...case in point based on feedback is that many who do seek to earn and are actually earning, either are not aware of this thread or do not bother to come here.

Re: Top Contributors - April 2020

         Congratulations to everyone who participated in the community in April as we learn how to adapt to our new normal both in our personal lives and our time spent here in the community. Many of our members are off work and school and its reflected on the community with a larger group receiving rewards especially newbies and first time badge holders....your efforts are appreciated as you learn all about public mobile and how to manage your accounts, recieve online help and when and how to contact the moderators.

         Some of our newest members have taken to the community like flies to honey! They had stellar performances of reaching new heights on the bravo leaderboard by helping out on the community with an overtime sheet that would make a payroll accountant's blood boil. Along the way they have been mentored by the highly experienced and seasoned team oracle team of @Luddite, , @mimmo @will13am , @NDesai , @computergeek541 and @ShawnC13 . They have taught us about the value of a bravo, when to choose a solution, why they move or split threads, the importance of staying on topic and what category/board to post or ask your question in. The oracles also learned from us this month....that as they mentor and guide community members by correcting our mistakes, praising our posts, cajoling, admonishing and sometimes criticizing us they need to choose their words carefully as not every member takes constructive criticism the same and as we are all ultimately customers  we need to remember to treat each other respect. This has brought their kinder, gentler side proving they really aren't a bunch of grumpy old men! ( lol! )

 

     As the weather warms up and pandemic restrictions slowly begin to be lifted all community members continue your good works by contributing and actively participating in the community by helping, caring and sharing as you can see by the badges in your profile and the rewards in your accounts public mobile does appreciate and acknowledges your contributions. Keep making a difference and adding to the diversity of the community.

 

As a tribute to @CannonFodder  previous efforts and for those enquiring minds that just need to know or see their name in the bright lights.....here you go....

I try to always  choose my words carefully....as I've learned this past month by the poor choice of a country as an example.....your words can have consequences  whether they are intended or not.

Re: Top Contributors - April 2020

@shoops The amount of Community particpation needed for each reward level changes each month. There is no preset way to predict this.

@shoops 

The top 1% level is s full time job....quite literally. Top 5% part time....bare minimum 20 hours per week+, top 10% 2 hours a day....the other badges of 25% and 50% depend on participation levels as they all do.....but this gives you an idea of the time commitment involved. You can make more money working 1 hour at minimum wage than you can being in the top 1%.
