Jappe XBA's Gamercard

New requirements for Representers!

As part of our commitment to improving the site and incorporating even more input from you, the members, we are proud to announce a revamped X360A Representer program! We present to you the x360a Ambassador program! We had a wide variety of suggestions and some very impassioned feedback from staff, existing Representers, and members of our site who have an interest in becoming an Ambassador. Without further ado, here is the result!

First of all, there will be two different tiers of x360a Ambassadors.

A Representer is a person who has "x360a" mentioned in their gamertag.
A Promoter is a person who has the site mentioned in their motto on their Xbox LIVE gamertag.

One of the bottlenecks that really slowed the process down in the past is the requirement of a gaming session with a moderator. This is no longer required, so that should make this easier and faster for everyone involved!

The new requirements are simply to have 500 non-spam posts on the forums and have been a member for 6 months. Under certain circumstances individuals who have significant history of poor behavior on the forums may be rejected at the staff's discretion, but this should be such a rare event that it is barely worth mentioning. The only other criteria that we do require is that your profile is set to public and that you are not one of those unethical folk who think breaking the Xbox LIVE Code of Conduct is acceptable (so no hate speech or profanity in your profile, no cheated achievements, etc.)

Creech loves to give out new awards to people so we will be introducing new forum awards for Representers and Promoters as well! The Graphics Team is very talented and will make some stellar awards, but if you have any input on what they should look like, respond to this thread with your ideas. They will be reading the thread and will post up some choices for you to choose from in the near future. It is YOUR award, so make sure your voice is heard!

Here is a list of the requirements if you missed something:
  • 500 non-spam posts on the forums
  • A member on the site for 6 months minimum
  • No Gamesavers/Glitchers/Hackers/Account Traders will be allowed to represent x360a. ALL accounts must NOT be set to private or offline.
  • Play nice over Xbox Live and respect your fellow gamers.
Feel free to ask any further questions on this thread!

Very nice! I just wanted to express my personal appreciation to everyone involved with developing the new critiera, and special thanks to Jappe for taking charge of the Representers right in the middle of the fierce fight completed games in the Staff and Subscriber Completion Competition.

Wow. Didn't realize the option for gaming with staff was up for grabs. Definitely makes it easier to become a rep/promoter. Nice work on getting this finished!

As for graphics, the original word of mouth pic kinda looks like a promoter to me under these new guidelines. Maybe something really cool for the reps, like that flaming ninja head we were using as a placeholder.

Edit:
Couple of questions,
1- Will there be separate sign-ups for reps and promoters?
2- To be clear, a forum name change is not part of either one anymore. (was part of the original discussion)

i think for the representer award, it should be 2 fists bumping, with a x360a logo exploding from between them. i imagine it would be hard to do though.

also, the main thing holding me back before was having to game with a mod, so now i don't have to ill probably sign up when everything is in place.

also, which is the higher level of rep between the 2? it seems changing your gamertag would be for the cost, but putting the entire website name in your profile is more clear.

So where would we sign up? Didn't think you guys would ditch the gaming sessions, but I understand. It would be crazy to try and game with everyone who signed up.

Also what is the exact wordage you want in our bio/motto?

It could be Username @ x360a.org, since that redirects you to the site. But not sure how many characters fit the bio. The motto can't be seen unless you dig deeper. The bio is seen just by looking at the gamercard.

Glad to see the changes up, I like the name distinction as well. As for the awards, for rep I was thinking like a person with the x360a logo for a head, but idk how well that would work in a 32x32 tile. I agree with Grifter about using the current Word Of Mouth award for promoters.

I think you're mixing those up. The motto (the thing that appears in your avatar's speech bubble) is more visible than the bio.

Either "x360a.org" or "xbox360achievements.org" is fine. Not sure if the full one will fit, honestly, I don't remember the length restriction.

And it's motto right? Not bio? You could include a short description in the bio if that fit in the criteria.

Couple of questions,
1- Will there be separate sign-ups for reps and promoters?
2- To be clear, a forum name change is not part of either one anymore. (was part of the original discussion)
1 - My guess is that one sign up thread should be sufficient for both, but that is up to Jappe.
2 - A forum name change was never a requirement. If you are looking for that as a potential benefit, that is separate and yet to be decided. This announcement was purely about the criteria change.

Promoter is no problem for me as I've had x360a.org in my motto & bio for years now. I've been a rep in the past and probably will again at some point but its good to know we can get recognition other than changing the GT as many members have wanted for some time. Good stuff

Tournaments will be restricted to Representers. Most threads in the Representer forum will be restricted to Representers. I don't feel that closing the forum to make it invisible to non-representers is a good idea at this time, especially when we are bound to have a flux of people signing on as Representers due to the changed rules.

I will be modifying the current sign-up thread to fit the new requirements. Both Representers and Promoters will sign-up in the same thread.

There's some inconsistency with the staff responses we're getting. So let me ask this clearly:

Are Promoters are treated the same as Representers?

There's an extra "are" in there that makes me think you've been watching pirate movies.

I think Creech mentioned this was an announcement about the requirement changes. Which is probably why we're getting some mixed answers about the benefits as they haven't been decided yet. Hopefully they let us know about that soon.

Point of confusion: Representer is used twice. Once overall and once as a level.

Sorry, the confusion is probably my fault. In my head, Representers + Promoters both equal Representers. Maybe we should come up with some different terminology to differentiate. Maybe call them Promoters and Ambassadors, with the collective called Representers.

Bottom line though, access to the forum and such will be available to both tiers.

Makes more sense now. Ambassador sounds too much like XBL for my comfort zone.

Here's some synonyms for "ambassador":
agent consul deputy diplomat emissary envoy minister plenipotentiary

Personally I like agent, because who doesn't want to feel like an agent?

Agent Coulson agrees

PS3T design is better than the first IMO. That other looks a little too much like a male cheerleader. Not that there's anything wrong with that. Just not my thing.

If "representer" is changed, will that change any possible designs?

I like Emissary, not a fan of agent personally.

Not really. For the designs I make (can't speak for the other 2 guys), I won't be adding text. I'll try and use images to represent the users role. I think text based ones should be left to staff only based awards.

Why not just have a huge golden "R" as the award or the R with a horn coming out of it.

Another thought for the pics, using the site's logo. Currently only the new Grid 2 award uses the logo. Could we incorporate it for representers? Afterall the logo can represent the site, just like the members can too.

I like this idea. Maybe throw the x360a logo on the side of the blowhorn?

Ok, what I've done is taken the titles away. I've added 2 more images, and I'll simply keep adding designs. You guys can choose which ones you like and which one represents which title!

Also, the new one with the logo, doesn't look too good personally! I still like the first one and the other gfx guys have said similar
