Greetings Everyone,

I have turned on the first alpha of the mentorship system. Before you go poking around with it please be sure to take a look at:

http://www.gaiscioch.com/about/mentorship.html

This system is to help keep new members from falling through the cracks and ensure that they can progress through the first few ranks with the greatest ease. This is not a IN GAME mentor system. This is entirely based on Gaiscioch Membership. There is no reward for doing this so if your looking for a new way to build Family Honor Points or Family Vault Credits this isn't for you. This system is for those that wish to help others without receiving anything in return. 

Please see me for help using this system and please report any oddities to me directly.

For those who may be lost, this should help direct you to where you will find the 'Mentor' button mentioned.

Many people wont see it unless they are the right rank. I will be adjusting the number of students each mentor can have at least initially so that we can help all these people. We have a Fine ranked member who has been with us since 2009. Hopefully this system will finally help bridge that learning gap and give people the chance to experience the full fun nature of Gaiscioch.

I finally have time to check this out! I'm not running around in RL today and caught up on magazine editing. LOL!

UPDATE:  I picked several people from Rift that are a combo of new to having been around a bit. Seeing as I hide in Rift more than GW2 atm I figured I'd be the best to pick people in Rift so they can find me in game, here or Discord once approved. I actually have quite a few mentor slots and actually could take one more. I have the time to do this even when RL gets crazy and know I can turn around in 24 hours answers to issues unless it really has to have a Fog fix. ;) Most times I can answer way faster. ;)

Here's to seeing how it goes!

As another note. If people go afk for 30 days youll be able to choose another apprentice. If they return it will resume your mentoring. So you might end up with more than your allowed at times.

This is interesting to note. How long does an offer to mentor last before it puts the person back in the pool to be selected by someone else?

Indefinitely. They will either go afk or you can cancel the request.

Bumping this as I only see around 5 of us actually testing this out per the list of those mentoring, unless this not working right. It is pretty cool and the only issue I found that Fog says he hasn't finished yet is how the system rolls over when someone graduates. We have LOTS of people that could use mentors - anyone not a veteran member yet (hover over Membership on the menu and then select Family Structure if you are unsure of ranks). 

Anyone of a rank to mentor will have the mentor button on their command center as per the picture above shown above. If you have the time and love helping people know the family better, I encourage you to step up and test out this mentor system.

So far it has been pretty easy and I've had a few people rank up and one graduate - she was close to becoming a veteran, but we agreed to test and I was helping her remember how things went anyway upon her return. ;) I think it is a great way to add to what this family offers to its members and even helps us get to know newer members better.

Also, it is best to try to mentor people in games where you spend the most time so you can also contact them in game to let them know what is going on and if you selected them as an apprentice.

I'm not sure Pookha has access like we have access. The way I coded it is for Gaiscioch members only so with him being flagged as HOL i'm not sure it will work right. *scratcheshead* I might have to investigate and see what Pookha might be seeing. It probably isn't what he should be seeing :D. Didn't expect any alliancekin to want to be mentors. But then there's Pookha :D. Always looking out for the lil guy.

LOL yup you have that and the proper rolling over of graduates to look at now. ::chuckles:: I had to grab someone who had little to go to be a veteran member just so I could test that too! Overall, it's pretty good and I've managed to get a better turn around on people accepting to be mentored than I had when I started. Need to go send invites to some other people since I have room and enjoying seeing what I can do.

Edit note: see you got my graduate off my active list, but she is not showing in my graduate list. So I see you working on things here and there. ;)

FURTHER EDIT - My graduate shows up correctly now! Thanks for all the work Fog. I sent an invite and message to another that could graduate in a little while just to make sure it rolls over seamlessly. I have another member on my list who will probably graduate by summer the way they are going and it's more time than anything for them as I'm sure their fellowship points will keep up with the time counting down. ;)

And I wish more people would step up to test this. I've had fun with this and like sending encouraging notes as my newest members learn the ropes of what all this family can really provide.
