Sample text

US modders had a stronger sense of equality within the modding community. The communities in US forums and IRC chatrooms were open to all, regardless of who they were and what their intentions were. M. Kow and B. Nardi agement modders controlled who could join the forums and IM chatrooms. The Chinese understood and respected these terms and conditions. However, control and segregation of types of modders in CWDG developed a hierarchy within the Chinese modding community. The need to manage Chinese forums and IM chatrooms was partly driven by undesirable elements in the community, such as trojans, guan shui, and ownership violations.

It was a friendly hierarchy, but still a contrast to the peers-as-equals flavor of US modding communities. At CWDG, modders were divided into the following categories: original, alteration, localization, dissemination, management, and learning modders. On uploading their first mod, modders seeking to join CWDG began as learning modders. They would be reclassified once management examined their mod. To be classified as an original modder, the rules for modders on the CWDG forum stated that the modder needed to author an original mod up to a “certain level of complexity” (CWDG 2008).

Between July 14 and September 10, 2008, we replicated the survey on the CWDG and Mop forums. Questions were translated into Chinese with the help of Simonw to ensure they made sense to Chinese modders. Twenty-two Chinese modders responded to the survey. One of our most striking findings was that while there were some super-productive modders in the United States and Europe, we did not find a comparable set of “elite” highly productive modders in China. None of the Chinese respondents reported having worked on more than 5 mods, but 28% of the respondents in the US sites had done so.
