Announcement: New Rangers Incoming!

We're announcing the newest addition to our Ranger team!

Welcome the New Guys

We're going to start off this announcement by welcoming some of our newer Rangers to the team: 2ndWonder, Stevo_the_Gamer, and horgen123.

Who is already a GameSpot Ranger?

In addition to unveiling our newest Rangers, we'd like to give big shout-out to all of our GS Rangers, deershadow, dog64, ExoticAnimal, fabz_95, michaelP4, and RealKilla_789. These guys deserve a big round of applause.

What is a Ranger exactly?

What is a Ranger exactly?
*Teach users how to use the site.
* Report on existing issues directly to GameSpot members.
* Create activities and emblems for the community for various events.
*Act as "liaisons" to the community.

Do Rangers report to Moderators?
Nope…well, not exactly. Some moderators lend a hand in the Rangers board but Rangers do not "officially" report to Moderators; they report to Staff.

How do I become a Ranger?
The Ranger process is invite only, so it's all about who you know.

What powers do Rangers have in the community?
The power of influence and persuasion! But seriously Rangers DO NOT have the same permissions as Moderators or Staff, meaning they cannot moderate, and they cannot sticky or un-sticky comments.

So there you have it. If you stumble upon Rangers on GameSpot, maybe they can help you out! If you find them in the How to GameSpot forum, our friendly Rangers would be happy to show you how to use the site.

If one of the rangers lives in New York, they  would be a New York Ranger.

Gamespot has Rangers, huh? Not as cool as the Rangers of Lord of the Rings or Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers (which I loved watching as kid).

Cool, at least it's like being a mod without the modding powers xD Not bad.

Well I'm glad Gamespot made another position. I want to have a position, but I couldn't become a mod. I am curious though. If Rangers are solely in charge of recruiting others, how will Gamespot control the amount of Rangers on the site?

Congrats to the new rangers! All three are very worthy of representing the community, and I'm sure will do a great job. It's also neat to see that they now have an icon beside their names labeling them as rangers, so the new users know who to direct their questions to. I think that was long overdue, but better late than never.

 @mario-nin-freak It's recommendation only. We cannot make someone a Ranger, that's still up to GS staff.
