JA Student Introduction Program

I'm Supervisor of this now:). So... e-mail us if you have any questions! student.introduction@gmail.com

Ruuk's original statements...




"Several days ago, I suggested an idea _tenatively_ called "JA Big Brother/Big Sister." The idea is to help new students.

This post is a location where you can sign up.

If you need more info on this program, read below. In a separate thread I stated the following:

"5. BETTER INTRODUCTION INTO JA FOR NEW STUDENTS.

This is already being worked on, but I think it could be better. The new students are now being sent, with their acceptance letter, a hyperlink to the Holocron. Inside this thing is a tremendous amount of information that would be VERY useful to the newbie prior to getting on the forums and online. However, I have another idea. Why don't we have a sort of big brother/big sister program started? Each newbie could be assigned to an active, willing JA member for a couple days...at least to just get their feet wet. They don't have to remain hooked up forever...like I said, maybe just a few days. We could add a post where people could volunteer to do this, and the upper management could rotate the new peeps in among the volunteers. ALSO: we've been concerned about the number of new people coming into the JA. I don't think this will be a problem. The new game will bring 'em back in. And how. SO...I suggest we use this new BB/BS program as a recruiting tool. As a way to "calm pre-newbie fears" about joining JA. Meaning, some people (laugh if you must!) are too shy to try entering something like what we have here. If we put up on our site that we have this as our standard operating procedure, we may bring in more peeps that need hand-holding. Once they get in here, we rip 'em apart, but until then...JUST KIDDING!

It's already properly started, but when you contact 20 members, and only 2 reply... it's not a wonder that you didn't get one (yet).

Be patient. There will be more members (hopefully :P)

Just making sure, but you all have a list of active volunteers and whatnot, also which has been stored somewhere in case of an... *cough*unfortunate*cough* accident? If you do, I'm going to go ahead and take down the list at the top. ;)

Yes, we have a database with all the relevant data, so feel free to delete the list on top :)

This list isn't really updated very often. We have another list, it's just that we haven't had many replies from new members. Since there are a lot of people in this list, and few replies, we haven't got round to you, yet. :)


Exactly. No use in appointing you to a member that's going to be inactive, is there? :)

I know that feeling, even if its totally different and annonymus it is still kind of strange. but hey, i made it this far i aint quiting now, and i wont let others do it ether.

You can sign me up on this too, im willing to help out.

But i have to notice you guys of something, Some people just register and then never become active. How do you propose we handle this? isnt it a waste of volunteers?

Yeah, but you have to make a sacrifice if you don't do it by tabbed browsing, which is what I did just now. You can either copy the link or the name.;)
