Recognized Contributor Code of Conduct

During the first half of 2012, XDA initiated the Recognized Contributor (RC) program to recognize members’ exceptional contributions and general helpfulness towards other members. Over the last 12 months, the program has become extremely popular and successful.

We have continuously upgraded the program and adjusted our vetting standards and criteria. As part of our review and monitoring procedures, it was felt that in addition to exemplary adherence to the site rules, Recognized Contributors should also be held to a Code of Conduct (CoC).

A short Code of Conduct was developed and will also bring the RC program in line with the Recognized Developer program that has for some time included a Code of Conduct for its titleholders.

Recognized Contributors – Code of Conduct

1 — The RCs primary role is to create harmony by helping other users. In doing this, RCs will seek to help by giving information and pointing users in the correct direction. RCs do not act as a monitor of the rules.
We try to be friendly here, and expect RCs to be at the forefront in setting a good example for others. RCs must not only follow the site rules but reflect a spirit of friendliness and sharing.

2 — RCs should be a model of good behavior on the forums. This means always avoiding conflict and arguments with users. RCs will discuss conflicts with a Moderator rather than contributing to arguments within forums.

3 — The RC title confers recognition for the valuable help given by the title holder to the site and its members, it does not confer added authority over other users.

4 — RCs are not allocated to specific fora, but aim to spread their help across the site as a whole.

The Code of Conduct reflects the high standards we expect from RCs, and in turn what other Members should expect when interacting with an RC. Finally, to further enhance the RC program and to keep it progressing efficiently, a Committee is being formed to help assess and review applicants.

HTC’s New Ad Campaign And What It Really Means

HTC has just released three new blind test adverts comparing app loading speed, audio and selfies. Whilst you are surely astounded that HTC won every time, the tests were incredibly biased and their release shows something concerning about the company and how they are performing in the current market.     One of the many reasons companies tend to utilize blind trials is when they feel that their product is comparable or better than its competitors. This leads to the assumption...
