    Passion without vision is almost useless. Passion is fuel, but if you have no direction, you aren't going anywhere.

    I've used all my likes today and so consider this a virtual like. vBulletin is easy to learn (and there are plenty around this forum who know it who could offer free advice if needed - we all want a functioning community) - but experience in managing a community of this size, diversity and passion is a lot harder to find.

    I've checked you out Steven on LinkedIn and I think you obviously know your onions. Do you not have any potential candidates in your LinkedIn network with a high level of expertise in this area? Just a thought.

    Passion gets you started, but the end result is what you will be remembered by.

    I consider myself quite familiar with everyone on this forum, and there has yet to be one particular member who stands out to me as the "the one for the job".

    Something that the applications, balanced by feedback from the panel members, will hopefully solve. I do believe that if everyone who applies is absolutely incompetent, Steven W. will begin making other considerations, as any sane person would. I doubt this will be the case.

    Honestly I would take someone with minimal experience but a grand vision and drive than someone who knows their stuff but are not too creative or driven to turn ideas into realities. Of course this is preference. Some candidates, no matter what the scenario just stand out above all regardless of their experience.

    My comment was not aimed at Cuguy at all. It was to do with how Steve goes about getting a replacement.

    I don't think at this stage we should take jabs at people any more.

    I'll be ramming home the fact that the panel should have an open mind and not get influenced by other's comments. I'll let everone know the process of the panel in due course. Also...no panelist is exempt from being taken off the panel should I deem them unsuitable.

    Been watching this thread over the last few days and I wasn't going to post as, truth be told, i couldn't care less who is the CM. But all I seem to see is people jumping on the same bandwagon and ragging on Cuguy so i need to know. What can someone else do that Cuguy isn't doing already?

    Regardless of whoever gets the role, i doubt much if anything will change.

    The role of Community Manager is an important one, and anyone who doesn't care simply fails to realize the amount of time and effort Cuguy has invested into this place. Organizing contests, promoting and demoting staff, communicating with the content team, etc. are just a few of the things the CM is in charge of, and it's a role (as the OP explains) that is expanding.

    Again, I think there is a general misunderstanding of what is being done here. Cuguy is not being ousted. Rather, PSU is looking to change the specifications for the role and is opting to do something we should have done from the get go: have a formal process for determining who holds the role. This is not a slap in the face that says "you're doing a horrible job." Steven and others are looking to determine who is best suited for the changing role; giving everyone a chance to apply for it as it should have been done long ago.

    If the message being sent was that Cuguy is doing a horrible job, he would not be given an opportunity to reclaim the title and would not be the acting Community Manager at present. If he was doing a poor job, he would have been demoted and the discussion would have stopped there.

    The Community Manager's authority and direct capabilities make this appointment very important for the site, and because people's visions for the site often differ in many ways, it's crucial that we realize that we're potentially setting ourselves up for a pretty big change when the new CM is selected. Whenever there is a new CM, the site suddenly has a new vision and changes begin to be made from the severity by which rules are implemented, to the rules themselves, to what you can and cannot post, etc, etc. Relative to everything at PSU, putting a new user at the helm is huge.

    I just want to say I like Cuguy and think he HAS been doing a good job, but whether he realizes it or not, he does lean more so towards the 360 then the PS3. He may not realize it himself but the forum members do see it... He a multi console user, I get it. Many users are. Even for multi plat owners there really is no 50/50. Just like with kids. If you have 2 or more u do have an "unspoken" favorite. Your only human. lol

    I just find it abit ironic that for a website once known as PS3Forums and now known as PlayStation Universe to have the CM that favors the competing console whether knowingly or not. =P

    I got nothing against ya Cu. If you even still want to retain the CM position after some of the thing said in this thread, I wish ya the best of luck in the race bud.
