Either I spent all my points before I took the long break from the boards or there was a point overhaul during my absence. I also was banned I found out when someone hacked administrative controls and tried to ban people. This occured without my knowledge.

I'd be glad to help if I'm qualified. I don't look like much, but I've been here a little while.

I don't bite, unlike BH.

Can I be a Student/Mentor? I'd love to learn more about research and certain areas of history/science/conspiricy, so I would make a willing and eager student. And as for teaching people not to merely lurk in the shadows (which isn't bad, if they are learning from the experiance, but is horrible if they never grow into a poster) by bringing forth Ideas and bodly marching them into the Threads... well I'm all about that!

Seriously, I doubt I have the Talents to Mentor here, but I would love some guidance and lessons.

Count me in too.
Love to help in anyway that I can

BradKellBrrexkl, I would gladly help you learn whatever you would like to learn (as long as I know it, of course). Anything specific in mind?

posted on Dec, 22 2005 @ 08:13 AM
Yes, I'm quite mental and I need help. . .what? Oh, mentors, right right.

Seriously though, if the shoe fits, I'd like to try it on.

not to turn this thread into anything other than it is. I'm merely responding to Burn's question, and we will either continue this on another thread or through messaging. (Not to worry, Mods! Rule #1, don't hijacks threads!)

I have alot of fields I wish to study. Currently I'm working on learning about the Bavarian Illumananti, staying first with the formative years between the early 1600's up to but not including when AW took control.

I have a thread going currently that I started, it should be easy to find. But I will return with the thread name and send it straight to you.

Other interests include Space, whether discussing travel or other life (whether intelligent or not), the Oceans (as they could hold many cures and advances for the Human life) and History, especially Egyptian, Greek, and Roman.

Again, I won't hijack this thread (as mods would surely move this, and that would put a blimish on me being a mentor
) I am merely replying to a single post from Burns.

Thanks you.

So is this official or is it like the adopt a newbie thread where we just get it done amongst ourselves, or wnat?

Brad, for any questions, feel free to direct them via u2u.

I believe that this is the "official version" of adopt a newbie.

posted on Dec, 22 2005 @ 11:04 PM
I don't think this project has been officially started yet.

Also if you guys haven't seen this yet...Mentor Qualifications

posted on Dec, 22 2005 @ 11:08 PM
Bear with us a couple three more days... This program is NEXT on the list of implimentation.


posted on Dec, 22 2005 @ 11:21 PM
Ah, sorry, I hadn't seen that.

Springer, what do you mean by "Must be willing to sign on for 3 months minimum" ?

Thanks for the guidelines, can't wait to see how this pans out.
Yet another great addition to this ever growing, wonderful site.

Sounds like it could be fun. Also it is a good idea to have something more official than the "adopt a newbie" system. While it has done a fair job so far of sheperding newbies into the wide world of ATS, I can't help but think how many users are intimidated or too shy to even approach an older member to be their adoptive guardian. How many have given up too early, I wonder?

Probably they fear being rejected or still don't know enough about the site to figure out where they fit in or if indeed the member willing to adopt them is suitable to their particular interests.

So having a mentor system, where newbies are assigned to, or else indicated towards where they can find a team of mentors, can only help get many more members up and running in a more timely fashion.

I have seen the qualifications, bar approval from the administration, I think I can safely say I qualify. So sign me up! I am willing to help in any way I can, this site has done enough for me, time to put a little back! I'm here in the funny time zone part of the world, so at least someone will be always on call!!

posted on Dec, 22 2005 @ 11:37 PM
I looked at the qualifications and as best as I could tell I fit them.

So this is my official application to be a ATS mentor. I'm on here practically all day.

posted on Jan, 2 2006 @ 08:33 PM
I know i havent been here long. But i have been on other boads like this and i think i have a good knowladge of computers and the internet. So i would like to offer my services to you all.

posted on Jan, 2 2006 @ 08:38 PM
I don't think I've been here quite 6 months yet, but I think it's getting pretty close.

As soon as I make six, if I haven't already, I'd love to help out if I can.

posted on Jan, 2 2006 @ 08:46 PM
Yay *does the monkey and other various stupid dance moves* I fit all the qualifications, well all of them except having to be chosen by the administration.

posted on Jan, 2 2006 @ 09:22 PM
I'll throw my hat in, Springer, SO, Simon.

This would be little more than an extension of my day job/business.

Explanations as to overall usage of the ATS user interface, as well as "coaching" the approach to proper and relevent posting technicalities and habits.

I've seen many a post, and ATSNN submissions, go the way of the trashbin when they truly contained good, relevent and pertinent content material. Had the member(s) been able to request assistance in their submittal, through an official channel, the end result may have, quite often, been different.?!


...for what it's worth?!

In this way "Mentors" could either sit in the new member chatroom and wait for any questions or enter chatroom when they see a member in chat.

Doing this will keep the number of mentors to a minimum, your way will take a lot of mentors and the number will grow yearly.

Like a live support line, you find at many company sites.

but noobs need 200 posts to join chat

which makes me think about u2us... there isnt a post amount requirement for u2us is there?
