Airsoft Ohio "Adopt a player program"

*Copied from AO facebook*

So I was thinking. What are some tangible ways to help revive our community spirit? Here was idea I floated and thought of. Working title being "Adopt a Player Program." Veteran players who are willing to step up and offer their services in mentorship to a newer player (less than a year in the game) for as long as it was beneficial. Pair people by regions and event preferences and have some of us old timers step up to the plate and be approachable for passing on what we know similar to a big Brothers big Sisters or a band big and little.

Some thoughts on requirements.

Be in good standing with the AO community at large, as well as their region.

Be willing to mentor and teach both skills and values of the community when able.

Be a part of the community for at least 3 years?

What are people's thoughts? I for one will step up myself as the first mentor volunteer.

As I said on FaceBook, my team, Knights of War would gladly be willing to mentor players as a team.
The team as whole has only been around for two years, but I'd say we've done some impressive things in only two years, and some of our players have been around longer than that (myself included)

Are we allowed to adopt younger players? I have a friend who may be interested.

I do believe I saw a few comments that raised my attention on facebook...
Now, this may be paraphrased so dont quote me.

I do believe it was Yawger who did say something along the lines of:
Some folks just shouldn't mentor, and there should be some sort of qualification or something to make sure people aren't mentored by community-acknowledged A Holes

Jonah, I actually had a guy message me from the Facebook post you made. It's been pretty cool so far. He's asked me questions and we talk on a semi regular basis.
