New Group: Mentors

Posted 10 April 2007 - 04:25 PM

I wanted to announce a new group here at dream.in.code: Mentors.

A mentor is someone who has exhibited expertise in a particular area and/or the discipline and traits needed to become a dream.in.code moderator. Mentors will usually be experts who have gone the extra mile and we would like to recognize them as outstanding members in the community. Members who we feel are "mentors".

Mentors are assigned to specific forums and have the ability to edit posts and titles, move threads, and close topics. Mentors who are helpful and exhibit all the traits we look for in a moderator will be considered during the moderator hiring process.

Like Experts, Mentors are promoted by the dream.in.code team based on perception. It has nothing to do with post count, when you joined, or how often you post.

Mentors names appear in cyan.

You will notice another small change, the "Team" group is now called "Admins" and the "Admin" group is now called "Webmaster" (that's me).

We'll be looking for more mentors and experts in the coming weeks, if you'd like to recommend someone for a expert or mentor badge, contact a team member.

Oh, I almost forgot to mention who our first Mentors are:

alcdotcom in Java, gregoryH in C++, and ajwsurfer in C++

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

LOL. Reminded me of that Foo Fighters Song where they imitate the Mentos Commercial. "Foo-tos the fresh fighter." :)
