Sly *needs* to add a development team

I think he's doing fine. He's releasing updates at the same rate he always has

Not having to wait 10 seconds for the forums to load would have been nice.

My comments get deleted all the time. And this was definitely different when AF and Eburk had mod rights. But this was before you've joined the site. ;)


Yeah I joined back in 2018, so idk how long this website has been around for or how it used to be. It’s just sad seeing comments getting deleted all the time (sometimes in real time when you’re browsing) when half of them didn’t even say anything wrong.
 

But I digress from the main topic. I do hope this website can get some new rims on the tires. To not at least have an official ultra rare leaderboard added in by now…that’s criminal. Don’t think we’ll see a development team doing something new for PSNProfiles for awhile though, if ever.

Really? Then why is this forum still slow as fuck? People have been complaining for about a year now. Nothing ever happened. And why does the site still not display the playtime for PS4 and PS5 games? Other sites do since 2020.

 

I was being sarcastic 

 

Even when he was active he didn't exactly do much. People have been posting on the feedback forum for years only to be met with silence. Even the smallest things you'd expect any trophy site to have and were requested hundreds of times, like marking unobtainable trophies or shutdown servers 

 

Like you mentioned, user information like hours played in a game is still missing after several years

Major bugs have existed since the PS5 release, like not being able to track or display games properly if they have more than 255 trophies

 

I'm surprised that he even bothered to update the trophy level system, although maybe that just sorted itself out automatically

Sly 100% needs to share the reigns more with development. It may have been manageable when he started but perhaps it’s got too big for 1 person to cope 🤔

I'm gonna ask a question that seems to be taboo. Does anyone contributing to the site actually gets any money for their contributions? Do the guide writers get any percentage of ad revenue on their guides? Do moderators get anything? It is a legitimate question. I assume no, not once have I seen it mentioned. Even the very extensive guide for writing... Well, guides is all about demands, not compensation.

I'm asking because all I've seen "it's Sly's website, he can do what he wants". While that's obviously true, it looks very differently if he's the only one getting paid for it, or if everyone who actually does something to contribute gets a piece of the pie. 

 

A development team is not an absurd idea when so many people want more functionality, and the sole owner of the site doesn't do a thing about it. People are organizing events and use their own money as prizes or contributions to some cause, to make time spent here fun. Others create a plugin or whatever to make PSNP better. There are premium accounts ffs. 

 

I'm not that deep into this site's culture, for all I know I might just get banned for this. But really, if people are contributing all of this for free, the guides, the moderation, the events and whatnot and the universal response is "it's Sly's website" and so on, it's just cynical af and kinda preying (for lack of a better word, if that's even a word) on people who more or less care about the community. Hence my original question, does anyone get paid at all? 

 

I can only speak for myself, but I don't get paid anything for moderating this site.

It’s always been assumed the “specialist teams” don’t get paid (Guide writers, Mods, CRT, Game info team) etc though this is speculation.

Not trying to dogpile on Sly, but this is the exact same thing that happened with his previous trophy site before he made PSNP. Hopefully, he gets a lust for the site and the urge to update features spurs him to keep this great site up-to-date with community requests for relevant features.

The fact a user had to create an improved version (PSNP+) says enough. It's just sad that communication between the Owner and the community is basically non-existent (anymore).


Honestly, I can see someone like Husky developing a great trophy website, if given the time. They seem like they’d actually give a crap about making improvements based on user feedback.

There is no compensation, we all do this in our spare time, which is why I do the most with what I have

I'm not sure what's the reason for this but I've seen lots of people complain about loading speed on this website. My internet isn't bad either and this is the only website I have issues with.
