No longer listed as a Moderator when I post RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I now post I am listed as Mike Walsh FIN (MCC, Partner) + points number.

    The problem is that this also occurs in those forums where I have Moderator rights.

    It is essential that , Moderator reappears with every post as maybe half of my posts (if not more) have in some way to do with the fact that I am a Moderator. People not knowing this and not seeing this in my name line could easiliy take offence at any old tom, dick or harry telling them what (not) to do.

    So Moderator is essential - Partner is completely irrelevant (I'm a cheapskate 'it costs nothing so just in case there's anything going free' "partner")

     

    [Unsure whether this ought to be here or in the Profiles forum (from which it would no doubt be rapidly moved to Off-topic :) ) so by all means move it on Brent.)

  • Just a note that whereas I am listed as MCC, Partner, it seems that MVPs who are Partners are now listed as Partner, MVP.

    If I were them, I wouldn't be too happy about this. MVP status has to be worked for - partner you can acquire with no more effort or expense than filling out a form.

    Thus they too should be MVP first and only then something else.

    I don't personally find any use in "Partner" appearing after my name when I post.

    It didn't before (Microsoft Community Contributor, Moderator) and that "omission" was fine by me.

    As far as I'm concerned there is no added value having this in each posting and it is enough if it is visible in a profile page (although even there I wouldn't miss it).

    At this point it would be appropriate, imho, to display only the role you have in the forum, such owner or moderator, keeping all other qualifications (including MCC or MVP) only within the profile.

    I don't agree. Better to show both the MVP, Owner, MSFT, etc. and the rule tags.

  • I'm with Vincenzo on this.

    MVP: shows a certain level of knowledge (pity though that you can be labelled as an MVP in a forum in which you have no knowledge because you are an MVP for something esle)

    MCC: shows someone who posts often (and presumably not just questions).

    Microsoft Employee:important to see as it means that once invvolved they are likely to stay involved until a problem is solved  (they tend to be brought in when the MCS guys are getting nowhere)

    Microsoft Contingent Staff: need to watch out to see if they are replying as normal support or as TechNet (or MSDN) support as in one case they might not follow-up and in the other case they do (also need to see to be aware of why a thread has been marked as answered after a week of no responses from the OP :) ).

    Moderator: why is this guy telling me what to do?

    ------------------------------

    Partner on the other hand serves no useful purpose at all as the term itself covers so many "sins" from the single person who has filled up a form (and probably lied through his teeth when doing so); to a worker in a company that sells MS products; to the owner of such a company (apart from whether the company is a Gold partner or not etc.). Without info on what kind of partner, it's irrelevant and even with that it's irrelevant as it is not a sign of competence or not.

    -----------------------------

  • Better show the MVP expertise if possible...There is a Windows MVP active in the Visual C++ forums apparently had some reason to say "My MVP is for Windows" in the signature.

    The following is signature, not part of post
