The Community Rep status is available no longer.
The Community Rep rank has been through a lot of peaks and valleys during its existence and it’s now time to do away with it.
As a staff, we have been through numerous discussions regarding the pros and cons of the rank. Everything from keeping the peace with trackers and finding some common ground that we could all be happy with, to dealing with a few bad seeds over the years which had no intentions of upholding their end of the agreements.
We had originally hoped that every CR would abide by the agreements which were offered to each and keeping up with assurances would not be an issue, though regretfully it has become one. With the surge of growth in new trackers in the past year, we have amassed al ot of CR’s, and the instances in which we must intervene and remind CR’s of said guidelines is mounting. We felt if there was a time to remove the CR rank, this was as good a time as any.
We understand that some of you have lived up to your end 100%. To those, we say THANK YOU. We are still committed to supporting trackers needs as we’ve always done. In the future we will most likely create a new rank which will be given much more selectively to a few staffers who are considered an asset to the site and have proven their good will over time.
