about mentors (in General)

how many of you mentors had a mentees that asked you a question about the game?
i had over 100 mentees and maby 4 or 5 asked 1 question and maby 1 over 2 questions
so im wondering why there are mentors when mentees never ask them questions, i see them ask questions in chat but never their mentor, so why do we exist?

I never *really had a mentor ask me a question, they only asked when I caught them online and asked them personally; I would say 3 or 4 of the ones I talked to in chat asked me a question. But if they have questions they ask in chat, I doubt more than 5% actually ask their mentor.

Do you ask your mentees if they want help? Do you offer advice? ....Are you online when they are?

Early CB2 didn't have mentors, but I officially had a mentor when I started CB1, though he was either never on, or never seemed interested in helping. Don't remember who it was... no one who still plays ;)

You only thought I was explaining the game I was actually trying to explain basic hygiene
