Mentor Program

#1 Post by Aurelia » Sat Aug 18, 2018 11:41 pm

I think the mentor program is better here than on PlayDip and I signed up a little while ago. I don’t think I’ll hear back any time soon (partly because I ticked Austria and Italy as the countries I wanted to learn :lol:) so I have two questions: a) How long does it take to get into the program? b) Am I allowed to re-sign up, without selecting Austria and Italy, so I can actually get a mentor? Thanks!

I am not involved in the mentor program, but I can tell you that the reason you didn't hear back isn't because of the countries you selected. Maybe there just aren't enough mentors available at the moment.

The mod team should be in charge of this. If you don't have anyone by September, I'll sort you out.

We're looking into this, thanks for speaking up! It's probably a shortage of mentors, but if the waiting list is long we should probably actively search for new mentors.

Lol. Yes, probably. But I think the issue is that no one is looking at it.

Thanks for speaking up. I've had my own issues with the program. I submitted an application on the 22nd of June and still have not received a reply. (I did this following a game playing as Turkey if that counts.)

The players I'm "mentoring" don't really come to me for advice anymore. So, I can always take some.

Me too, I'm happy to mentor people come September. No guarantees you'll learn anything :)

After some digging I found out the current mentor program hosts are unavailable right now.

If you message me with something that will help me match you to a mentor, I'll try to figure something out.

If you read this and would be willing to be a mentor, please also message me.

Maybe for now we should create a small little network ourselves?

I'm trying to receive the password to the mentor program so I can run it, but those that have it refuse to cooperate :(

Then the mentor system fails to do what it intends to accomplish! What's the reasoning for that? Thanks for being so helpful, Claesar. +1 to Aurelia here.
