    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.

    good move skizo. i agree that since I've joined I noticed some community reps being helpful, but for the most part they were arrogant and unhelpful.

    One of the newest comm reps did not deserve HIS title at all. I guess FST has their reasons for doing away with comm reps, in place for a better noteworthy system in the near future.

    I hope the new system works out for the staff and having my CR title removed wont change me one bit, since I will always try to contribute here because I like this forum and not because of the title I hold.

    Great thing to do. But the reps that were good should be given some identity like a title or so just my personal opinion.

    Titles aren't important. Its the contributions and helpfulness they provided here that is. They can still do this, and if/when fst decides on a new 'rank' the ones still doing this will be found.

    i guess that includes that all tracker accounts are allowed to trade now, right?
