Site News: PS3 News is Now Seeking Some Forum Moderators

1200°
77w ago - With the recent increase in activity in the PlayStation 3 scene we would like to bring on some new Forum Moderators here at PS3News.com.

Your responsibilities would include the following:

  • Log in near daily (not just visit)... every few days at most, as we'd expect you to be a PS3 fanatic like us!
  • Make at least (1) post a week answering someone's question or helping around the boards.
  • Lock any threads posted in the wrong Forum section directing them to repost in the proper one.
  • Lock any new (duplicate) threads started on existing topics, for example we have an ongoing thread for Rogero CFW so direct users there and close their new threads started on it.
  • Issue a verbal warning to those who break the Site Rules (only extremely blatant/obvious cases, the less serious offenders you do not have to worry about)

PS3News.com Forum Moderator Perks:

  • You will receive the Forum Moderator status title, or the ability to change it to what you wish.
  • You will see the least amount of ads while browsing the site as appreciation for your assistance.
  • You will be eligible to review new products...

 

PS3News.com Goes Mobile with Forum Runner and Tapatalk

800°
155w ago - As we continue implementing ideas from the 2011 Suggestions, today we have added mobile support to our Forums through both Forum Runner and Tapatalk applications.

Forum Runner is an Android / iPhone / iPod Touch / iPad App that allows you to browse this forum using a native client.

This means faster access for those users since it only downloads the actual forum information rather than all the extraneous images that slow down the mobile connection.

Forum Runner is free for Forum viewing and $1.99 for the full featured app that allows posting among the extras.

Downloads: Forum Runner iPhone Client (Free Version) / Forum Runner iPhone Client (Full Version) / Forum Runner Android Client (Free Version) / Forum Runner Android Client (Full Version)

PS3 News Scheduled Downtime, Forum Upgrades & Logo Thread

850°
159w ago - Just a quick heads-up to everyone, starting this weekend (not an April 1st joke) we will begin upgrading the vB3 Forums we currently use to vBulletin 4, and through the transition there will be some scheduled downtime while our server cat works his magic!

Once the vB4 upgrade itself is complete, we will undergo another few weeks of work with some minor downtime while porting the remaining modules to vB4, followed by implementing some of your 2011 suggestions to our site. If you have any feel free to contribute them to the thread and we will do our best to make it happen.

Additionally, we are currently seeking a new site logo- if you are a graphic artist and would like to share some design concepts check out this ongoing thread... if we end up selecting one posted we will send the artist a $100 PayPal gift to express our appreciation.

Thanks to everyone who has shared their PS3 News site suggestions and logo designs to date, and we look forward to checking out new ones as time permits!

EA Support Confirms No Game Bans Resulting from Forum Bans

50°
285w ago - Recently it was reported that if you were banned from the EA Forums you were also going to be banned from playing their games online.

Today EA Apoc has confirmed this initial statement was inaccurate and a mistake, to quote:

Hey everyone,

If you didn't notice, your C&C Community Manager, me, had a bit of a run-in with the video game blogging media today in reference to a direct quote I made on our forums here a few days ago in regards to how we handle bans and suspensions on the forums and in-game.

You all know how we are greatly trying to protect and serve you from those who wish to disrupt our C&C community by breaking ToS on our forums or in-game, and I know everyone appreciates when we take action on those that are the worst.

That said, the previous statement I made recently (that's being quoted on the blogs) was inaccurate and a mistake on my part. I had a misunderstanding with regards to our new upcoming forums and website and never meant to infer that if we ban or suspend you on the forums, you would be banned in-game as well. This is not correct, my mistake, my bad.

If we suspend or ban you from the forums, that does not affect your...
