Good to finally see some life in this program, it was long overdue!

 

The highlighted sections of the text however do leave the door wide open to shut down CC's who might not applaud every move you make or every OP/Broken premium tank you release. Since WG will be the judge if something is "dishonest", "clickbait" etc.

The last thing this program needs is WG seeming to silence people, just a friendly reminder :)

I would argue that; It is not a lie but it is a personal opinion (whether wrong or accurate, that part might be debated). ;)

 

By the way, it is also true for your opinion if you think it was not balanced!

Have you considered extending the community contributor program besides just youtube/twitch/blogs? There are many other things that people can do in order to contribute to the community. For example, there are some very popular mod makers out there that contribute a lot. Then we also have players that are very active in regards of testing/feedback/suggestions. If you'd release a map designer I'm sure there would be a lot of highlighted people there aswell.

 

Maybe you could have 2 roles, Community Contributors and Game Contributors? :great:

Nice to see that you've realized that prevention and early response is better than than what usually happens. I like it, it's a sign of evolution!

 

I've actually seen a couple of Youtubers with WoT-sponsored content recently. It's nice to see it 'out and about' - and definitely better than giving press accounts and cash to popular Twitch-streamers with no idea on how to play. Watching that made me want to quit the game and/or go watch QB.

There are many processes that a person can take to be a valuable member of the community. The CC program is just one piece of a large puzzle, we hope to make the puzzle easier to understand and less prone to changing :)

Good for WG to launch this kind of programs, but I just can't accept some of the conditions in it. And this is why I would never follow someone in such a program.

I'm not going to write a book here about ethics... But just keep things simple.

It's up to the player to decide if the content is good or not. If an "opinion leader" like a blogger or youtuber starts saying blatant lies about a game, the followers wise enough to see through will leave... And the fools will stay. But who cares about the fools? I certainly don't. Maybe that WG cares about the fools as they are potential customers who will give their money.

But I think that WG shouldn't care about fools even if there is good money in it. Why? Well, if you build a strong community of fools to fund your project, you will have immediate success. But what about the future? The next game developper will make a Fornite or something like that, and steal all the fools you raised.

The thing is to do it the hard way. Make a good product to please wise and smart individuals. And keep up the hard work and respect for your customers, build a legendary game and a strong community. And then keep building on it as a strong base.

But you can't give up codes, free premium tanks etc... And expect obedience.

What I mean: You don't get to control the program. You can encourage people by giving them tanks to test. Codes etc... So they can provide a better content (hard to test a tank you don't have). And leave them evolve alone.

NO CENSORSHIP!!!

In fact, having your own moderators on your own forum is pretty much a violation of our freedom of speech. If we have something negative to say about the game, we should have the right to say so. I doesn't have to be constructive.... It's up to you to interpret it and make into constructive propositions. It's your job, not ours.

I don't think you understand what freedom of speech is, firstly above all else. 

 

And slander doesn't work on common sense, nor does it when people see WG as a person providing access for a person to test things early and they then say some unsavoury things, people assume it's endorsed, when it's not. 

 

This is why the program has been changed to keep things in line and to highlight the fact this is facilitation, not a provisional "relationship". It's not about expecting obedience, it's about helping people make content that helps them create their own content and get the extra edge while also advertising content and showing it off for people in ways we cannot. 

 

We don't get to control all content, but we do on the other hand get to control our own program. If a person abuses a position of trust or the materials given to them, then we have full right to pull that support. This isn't censoring them, it's about making sure those who a constructive thrive, those who are toxic don't. Freedom of speech doesn't give you a right to offend people or make inaccurate statements and dress them up as "personal opinion". 

 

It is a content creators job to be objective, informed and informative. It is not a content creators job to be sensationalist, click-baiting or over-the-top-negative to please the masses. This is why you have big content creators and those who aren't, if you compare the material they create, you can see this. You can only interpret offensive statements as criticism, if there's nothing constructive said, then there's nothing to interpret it becomes sentiment not constructive feedback, there is a HUGE difference.

Hello sir,

 

I was looking for further info according to community contributors, mainly where to submit my entry according to that ?

Apart from this if there is anything more to discuss or ask for further info who shall i contact ?

 

Thank you for your time,
