Idea for a Mentor Reward System (in General)

DrAcO5676 [The Knighthood III] April 18 2006 6:36 AM EDT

Now I have this Idea, you know how some people are complaining about there not being a test or any rewards for being a mentor? I was thinking to test them by setting something up, with an Admin of course like G_Beee or Bartjan. I was thinking if it could get authorized, that someone could start a few random new accounts then start testing the Mentors by asking some questions about what they should do. You know some basic stuff like what kind of weapons they should use or what skills they should use. That would see which Mentors actually helped out and maybe if G_Beee or Bartjan have some spare Items on one of their admin chars, they could send the item to the Mentor if they helped out appropriately. This is just an Idea, and if it can get authorized it might be an interesting way of testing our mentors out there. What do you think? (Flames or suggestions are welcome.)

I guess I just figure that some of the Mentors do deserve some sort of recognition. The Mentor would be totally random, and you could delete the account after each test as well. It keeps the whole test thing random so no one can ever suspect if they are going to be next. It'll put all the Mentors on their best behavior as well.

Then again I know the whole idea behind becoming a mentor is not for any potential gain, but I have seen very little recognition for any of our Mentors out there busting their humps to get our Mentees on their feet.

That being said.... Flame away!

In CB1 Shade used to post every month asking new players to nominate their mentors to be Mentor of the Month providing a detailed description of why they should be.
The trophy was to own a named dagger for that month.

Mentor of the Month should make a comeback. ^_^

I will donate the CB necessary to name a dagger "A Piece of Chalk" if MotM is brought back.

If Shade is cool with this, I will bring back MotM. Anyone who wants to help, please CM me.
