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!

Come on now, every Generation X boy wanted to be Luke Skywalker. Is it because he was a whiney farm boy from some backwater hack planet? No, it's because he was a FREAKING JEDI. He could block lasers with his lightsaber. He could levitate droids & rocks & crap with his mind. Come on, he choked two pig dudes with just a simple gesture. He cut off Darth Vader's hand and kicked him down a flight of stairs. He got his @$$ zapped by lightning from the geezer Emperor, stood up and said "s'at all you got b!tc#??"
