***Important Update 13 November 2010***
Since the launch of the Milestone Clubs we've already encountered concerns regarding hacked game saves/Platinums. Current guidelines for the Maximum Clubs/Milestone Clubs dictates that a member may not be allowed to participate in said Clubs if they have these types of games on their profiles. However, the one saving grace that we've extended to members within the Maximum Clubs is allowing them to participate in the Clubs (minus their questionable Platinums) as long as they informed us up front which Platinum(s) were illegitimate. Keep in mind many
factors contribute to this and it's always on a case-by-case basis
What we've decided to do in order for more people to be able to participate in the Milestone Clubs is give members an opportunity to come clean and let us know up front which illegitimate/questionable Platinum trophies they have on their profiles. This can be done privately in PM's. If you decide to PM privately, you must
send the message to all 3 Directors. No exceptions.
How it works:
Those who choose to come forward with this information will be allowed to enter the Milestone Clubs (minus your bogus Platinums). However, if you've signed up previously or sign up in the future and we later discover hacked Platinums, hacked game saves or other questionable issues with your profile, you will be permanently banned from the Milestone Clubs. No questions asked.
- All you have to do is send all 3 of us Directors a private PM letting us know EACH illegitimate Platinum you have on your profile. You don't have to send 3 different PM's. Just write 1 PM and cc it to Yoshi_Girl, jmowen and Dark_Phantom89.
Anyone currently on the Milestone Clubs is advised to PM the Directors immediately if you have questionable Platinums on your profile before we find out. All we'll do if you notify us is simple deduct the Platinums and move you to the appropriate Milestone Club (if applicable). Irregardless, all hacked/illegitimate/questionable Platinums will be deducated from your total, and the number of Platinums left will be the Milestone Club you're entered in.
Those who are found to have modified and/or jail-broken PS3's thus giving the player an additional unfair advantage trophy-wise are automatically disqualified from the Milestone Clubs. Those who fit this bill and are discovered to be in the Platinum Clubs will be removed immediately.
This announcement isn't to be confused with known in-game glitches in which developer error is the issue. Certain games (like Buzz! Quiz) are well known for having a severely glitched trophy set. In that case, we're not holding it against you. What we're talking about is entirely different. But in any case, this is a very good opportunity for more trophy hunters to enjoy the new Milestone Clubs. Those who might have made a few mistakes in the past can still participate. You just have to be up front with us as opposed to us finding out later on when it's too late.
If anyone has any questions about this amendment please contact us and we'll do our best to respond as promptly as possible.
