Heh.. I was a TheHelper.net poster before I became an MVP.

If you want I can contribute to this somehow, I've only been an MVP for a few years though.

Info on the current MVP program, and how you became a MVP. Also, about how you found TH.net and maybe some of that story too. It might not be interesting to you but it is interesting to us :)
 
I stubbed out the main Tom Mai link on the Story since his stuff is in the stories section. I am going to do my own thing on Tom since I think I know him pretty well posting news together for a number of years now :)
 
Added FireCat and Siretu as a Potential Section Stubs with a high probability of being done soon.
 
Oh yeah. I showed the MVP-specific part of this to a recently added MVP, Leviathan. He thought it was interesting to read the history of the MVP program even though he never had anything to do with Thehelper.net.

Anyway I will write up something for this eventually. I will have to check in with the guys at Blizzard to see how many details I'm allowed to spill about the inner-workings of the MVP program currently. :p
 
They have a bunch of information about it public I have been doing some research. I will be adding Moar to that section later.
 
Let's see if we can invite a few more MVPs and try to finish the research up with even more details, hopefully we get Blizzard's attention and actually get one of the employees to reply here.

I highly doubt that Tom Mai. We have not had a Blizzard forum lurker in a long time. Last one was our StarEdit mod back on the SitePowerUp forums before we got Vbulletin.
 
Since Daskunk said that he's going to check up with Blizzard, he might share this site with them. Who knows? There's a chance!
 
kc just now came back as Prometheus - lets see if he does anything :)
 
This is still on my to do list, I shall be returning! Busy with life recently, ;(.
 
General chit-chat
Help Users
  • No one is chatting at the moment.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    See how we like that.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I do not see a way to go past the 1st page of posts on the forum though
  • The Helper The Helper:
    It is OK though for the main page to open up on the forum in the view it was before. As long as the portal has its own URL so it can be viewed that way I do want to try it as a regular forum view for a while
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Yeah I'm not sure what the deal is with the pagination.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    It SHOULD be there so I think it might just be an artifact of having an older style.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I switched it to a "Standard" article forum. This will show the thread list like normal, but the threads themselves will have the first post set up above the rest of the "comments"
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I don't really get that article forum but I think it is because I have never really seen it used on a multi post thread
  • Ghan Ghan:
    RpNation makes more use of it right now as an example: https://www.rpnation.com/news/

    What do you think Tom?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    I will have to get used to this.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    The latest news feed looks good
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I would like to see it again like Ghan had it the first time with pagination though - without the pagination that view will not work but with pagination it just might...
  • The Helper The Helper:
    This drink recipe I have had more than a few times back in the day! Mind Eraser https://www.thehelper.net/threads/cocktail-mind-eraser.194720/
  • The Helper The Helper:

  • The Helper The Helper:

  • The Helper The Helper:
