Welcome to our latest Adoption Program!! This program was created to give every new member an helping hand during the first time at this Star Wars Forum. We know that the boards are overhelming at times and that it might be confusing in the beginning, so we started an adoption program years ago. Its suppose is to make you feeling familiar with the forum easily. @ New Members: If you, as a new member (also called Newbie), would like to get adopted, just post in this thread or send me (Skiara) a private message (PM = conversation) and I'll add you to the list of "free newbies". Of course, you can go ahead and ask one of the listed oldbies (experienced members) on your own. Once you are adopted, you can ask your adopter whatever question comes to your mind or whenever you need help. Your adopter will show you interesting parts of the forum as well. The time of adoption is not limited. Whenever you feel being ready to discover the forum on your own, just let your adopter (and me) know and your adoption time is finished. In case, you find yourself having another question without having an official adopter anymore, I'm sure, your former adopter will help you nevertheless - or simply post your question in this thread. @ Experienced Members: Oldbies, if you want to help* a new member, please, post in this thread thread or send me a PM. I'll add you to the list of "free oldbies". Of course, you can go ahead and ask the new members on your own. Just let me know, if you adopted one, so I can add you to the list of adoption teams. Please, make sure that you have been at the boards for at least four months and have 400 posts. This is to ensure that you have a certain amount of knowledge about the boards so you can guide your adoptee. If you're giving me up to three of your favorite boards, I'll list them as well, so one can see your main areas of the forum. *Helping means to answer questions, to chat a bit regularly and to show him/her interesting places (including hints and tipps of the special board atmosphere and guidelines), so the new member can enjoy the boards the most! Additional Info: The last versions of adoption had an training program included. Because of the 'Big Move' of the forum, the training program is under construction. Keep your eyes open for the new and improved training program.
