Right now, there is a new member seeking adoption on the Adopt a New Member thread...

So why not lend this newcomer The Pale Horseman a hand??







btw - I recall that at one time this thread was 'stickied' to the top of BQB. But not now.

Doing so, you can help the ATS community and help a new member as well!

I help members as much as I can. Once I am a member for six months I will become a mentor. It is always great to help make ATS a better place and help new members. If any new members need help they can always send me a u2u. If I do not know the answer to your question I will find the answer out and get back to you. I am always here to help.

I think it would be a great idea to have a list of mentors like there is the list of staff on the home page to the forum. That way new members would know who to ask to be his/her mentor. Members who wanted to be on the mentor list would have to fit the qualifications for becoming a mentor and just ask the person in charge of the list to be added to the list.

I now see why there is not a whole lot of "senior" members willing to adopt new members that ask to be adopted.

Out of the last 7 or 8 potential adoptees, only 1 has consistently returned to the Board.

But I won't give up hope, or will I give up on helping new members here.



edit - spelling.

I've honestly stopped adopting new members. I probably adopted at least 50 in a period of six months at one point. Whenever I had noticed a proposal in the thread, I would contact them via u2u. Some of the u2u's took me 20-25 minutes to create. My own stunned fault for not copying it and saving it for future reference, but nonetheless I continued to push on. If I sent 50 u2u's, I may of had 1 reply. And of that 1 reply, I never heard of the member after that.

So rather than adopting members, I look for those that are seeking help in forums. If someone asks a question, I am quick to answer. If they are looking for information, I try to point them in the right direction. I chat with members whom I've never heard of regularly through u2u. I find this more effective than the adoption process.

Like you've said, too much effort with too little impact. Help those that are looking for help. There are plenty of new members out there that want help, and it is nice to see others that have the information taking a moment to share it. Sometimes all they really need is a link.
