I believe OTM originally had plans to integrate guides further into the game and forums, however that never came to be. If VR chooses to expand the concept further, there are several I would nominate!
For those looking for further ways to help others, I recommend:
- making and maintaining a guide on your main class (probably the only reason people know me )
- mentoring players on your server
- helping others on 3rd party communication channels (I believe every class has a LINE group? There's a melee one, a DPS one too..)
- offering constructive, objective, and well-written feedback on ideas and implementations
Guide, moderator, admin, general, or not, those who carry weight in the CH community do so regardless of title.
Half of the guides were questionable, there was even one with less than twenty posts if I recall correctly.
It is a pointless position. What this forum needs is reputation where you can give reputation points on posts, thus, if someone has a high reputation then people will know if the poster is a veteran and knowledgeable.
