2019 Mentor Project!

Introducing the 2019 webDiplomacy Mentor Project!

We’ve learned from our own experiences and from feedback from our mentors that the webDiplomacy mentor program isn’t going too well - often, since we have nothing to follow along with, mentoring turns into answering a few questions, then nothing else. Per request, here is the official webDiplomacy mentor packet, modified from Durga’s guide written a couple of years ago.

The Mentor Project will be a little competition between mentees. Each week, mentors will come together to create or find a puzzle or challenge to do. This can be anything from one of the puzzles found here to a Diplomacy strategy video and application. We’re always open to suggestions on this! Students will get points based on how quickly they get the answer, whether the answer is right, and depending on the type of challenge, the discretion of the mentor team.

The team of mentors will be communicating over the mentors channel in the webDiplomacy Discord server. For obvious reasons, we can’t create our challenges over a forum thread, and PMs can be clunky and are problematic when they’re being sent to many people.

This is only once a week, and if you’re a registered active mentor, we expect you to participate with your student; If you can’t, let us know. If you don’t have a mentee but would like to help out, comment below! I’ll add you to the mentors channel to help us with the challenges, and if a mentor is unavailable, we can have you step in.

There are many aspects of this that I need your feedback on before we get started, so if you haven’t already, join our Discord server at: https://discord.gg/f2ram4w. I’ll give you the Mentor role, which gives you access to the locked channel we’ll be talking in. I may create a separate role called “Project” or something similar that also has access to the channel for those that don’t have mentees but want to help.

Shoutout to Claesar who’s helped a ton for this and run the program alone for a while!

The webDiplomacy mentor program was the reason I stayed on this website. Thanks for contributing to the community and I’m excited to work with you!

Remember that while this is a competition, the reason we're doing this is so you can build a stronger connection to your mentor and solve challenges to help you get better at Diplomacy.
