Re: Top Contributors - May 2020

Congrats to all contributors.  This is what, in my opinion, makes PM stand out.

Re: Top Contributors - May 2020

Congratulations all! Very well deserved! I have only been a part of the community for a very short time, but it is amazing to see all of the support really come together from everyone.

 

Awesome experience and amazing community!

@pm-smayer97 

I agree with you.....thus they should return to it being an actual shout out instead of making one of the community members do the legwork and list the top 3 badge levels (made all that much harder by the elimination of the bravo leaderboard.)

 

@ShawnC13 

Nice work on the numbers.....it works out the same working from the bottom up or vice versa. And of course it's all speculation....but at least it gives all the new members an idea of how it all works in regards to their inquiries on how to earn community rewards and what kind of participation is required and the time spent to qualify for a low level reward.

 

@z10user4 

Yes .....my commentary coming from the person who vehemently argues the discussions vs lounge topic. This entire discussion still being in the original top contributors announcement thread. I don't have a problem with that.....but it makes me wonder why it is if I start the topic with community statistics or bravos or post counts or the like it gets condemned by so many and summarily moved to the lounge or deleted all together?!! I suggest the opposite......keep these discussions in the lounge and you jump down my throat for that! So just what are you trying to say with your sarcasm? Pick your position and stick to it rather than flip flopping around like a politician desperately trying to get re-elected.

I have already said that they should just remove the Discussions category having The Lounge. Then you can doodle around with whatever you want to say and no one needs to care...least of all me.

So my comment was about you saying that this should be moved to the lounge when you were the one at war trying to keep pointless, irrelevant threads bravo-able.

"new father with his 10th child can't slow him down @Naepalm , @gblackma and @computergeek541 are the new public mobile support dream team"

Lol if that cant slow him down haha
Its been pretty quiet around here though I can check in 2 hours later and only one new question has been asked. Looks like now that people are starting to get back to work the questions are slowing. I have noticed @gpixel and @RossN have really stepped up recently.

Re: Top Contributors - May 2020

@darlicious , @pm-smayer97  it also could be that it a marketing tool/ transparency tool, to say hey we gave out rewards.

 

As for the the shout out, leader board, I am sure there was reasoning behind thoseythose decisions.

 

As for determining who got what if it's that important for you, the tools are available and you just need to take   it upon yourself to do the leg work.

 

Maybe it's time to focus on the core function of the community (providing support)  rather than dwelling on statistics,  the constant bickering/ tracking Bravo's, speculation  on rewards based on Bravo's etc.  I'm sure it will lead to a much more enjoyable experience for all involved.

         Pointless and irrelevelant to whom? To you? You are certainly entitled to your opinion but is your opinion the harbinger of all community members opinions? Are discussions about the community not public mobile related? If your on the side that only bravo worthy posts should be help/support related why haven't you asked an oracle to split this thread already and move it to the lounge? Or for that matter why not drum up support to have all announcement threads to be non bravo worthy since they are generally a discussion and if help/support questions come up they can then be split and moved to a bravo earning category?

       My lounge vs discussions argument is based on new members being able to contribute and participate on the community and earn a reward while they avail themselves of the information provided here to learn about public mobile and the community so they can eventually be able to help other members. The whole point is to attract and retain new members and keep them engaged. If we tell them or admonish them for trying to help but without a significant amount of knowledge to be helpful or worst yet be detrimental with their posts why would they want to stick around?

       You have a choice on whether or not you want to bestow one of your precious bravos on a post. You choose to exercise that choice infrequently which is your privilege. Limiting that ability of others to make that choice isn't yours to make. Let others decide what is important to them....or what they find to be pointless and irrevelant ....maybe they'll choose that to be your opinion.

Re: Top Contributors - May 2020

 @darlicious 

Yup. My opinion. That's all I got. It happens to be shared with others but here we are. And of course you have your own dream team that would agree with you. All of that does indeed make a community.

You know full well that there have been many a thread having exactly nothing to do with anything Public Mobile related ending up somewhere bravo-able. It somewhat promptly gets dumped down to the lounge and then hissy fits ensue with the smell of burnt hair thick in the air over it all.

 

I reject your rationalization over lounge/discussions. It had all been way too abused.

 

I agree with Naepalm, it has got quite quiet around here now for several days. That frenzy of a couple months ago for a couple months is what triggered all this navel gazing and bringing unwanted scrutiny by the company wondering what all the fuss is about. That and unpleasant arguments and calling on the teacher for final proclamations.

 

So with all this quietening down maybe things can just settle back down to a reasonably predictable state rather than all this crazy unrest. Like this.

@mimmo 

      We can only speculate on public mobiles reasoning behind what they do...and why. We ask these questions and discuss our opinions among ourselves....that were naturally derived from this thread.

     I do take advantage of the tools available to do the leg work to satisfy my own curiosity and provide that information for others if they are curious themselves and can't be bothered or don't have the time to do it themselves. You dont have to tell me......or did you miss or just skip over my original post in this thread? Certainly your choice to do so.......just don't tell me to do something I've already done....

     If you're going to comment on disseminating statistics......then you should include all participants when addressing your opinion. Or do your fellow oracles get a pass on this kind of thing? (Sorry @ShawnC13 I appreciate your efforts and our common fascination with stats but if we are to be admonished by @mimmo it should be done fairly and across the board!)

      I'm happy to concentrate on providing help/support but as @Naepalm just mentioned when there's only one new question every 2 hours maxing out at 12 per day with at least 25 members here everyday wanting to provide help/support how is not having any other discussion, no repetive posts going to keep members engaged? Let alone recruiting and retaining new members? Shall we have a waiting list that we rotate thru so every member who wants to provide support gets a fair chance at answering a question and helping out? That way two members can have an opportunity to answer the same single question per day and have their imput without having any extraneous discussions that could take away from the purpose of the community....to provide help/support  to public mobile customers.

 

BTW.....could someone please get an eraser and get rid of the "and share ideas." part at the top of the community landing page? Is seems to be an outdated part of the community's motto.
