    Here's a new update. I apologize if I made you wait too long, I've had a very bad weekend.

    Welcome back, Strid. :) I will contact you later to let you know about everything that happened in your absence, gotta run now.


    [blockquote][hr][hl=#60699F]Newbie Adoptions List[/hl][hr][/blockquote]
    Hello, Newbies! :D Are you feeling a bit lost? Are you intimidated by the sheer size of the [link=http://boards.theforce.net/]Jedi Council[/link]? Do you want to blend in quickly, make friends fast and avoid common rookie mistakes? Then you have certainly come to the right place! Here, in the [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=12113034]Newbie Adoptions [V4.0][/link], we have a collection of extremely talented and caring Oldbies who are dedicated to helping you learn the ways of our beloved [link=http://boards.theforce.net/]Jedi Council[/link]. [face_love] Once you?ve been adopted, you?ll be able to direct any question about the [link=http://boards.theforce.net/]Jedi Council[/link], no matter how small or silly, to your Adopter. So, get adopted today! ;)

    [ul][li]Newbie Adoption Co-ordinator: If any adoption information changes or if problems arise, please notify me ([link=http://boards.theforce.net/user.asp?usr=341669]Morgaine[/link]) via [link=http://boards.theforce.net/pm_send.asp?usr=341669]Private Message[/link] as soon as possible, and I?ll be sure that it is fixed immediately. :) [/li]

    [li]Adopters/Oldbies: To adopt a Newbie, you must be a registered JCer for at least four months, have accumulated 500 posts minimum to your current username, and have a current ?Adopters Application? on file. Also, when applying to become an adopter, you can choose to specify any preferences (i.e. gender, age, interests) that may aid you or the Coordinator in finding your ideal Adoptee. Oldbies may only adopt one Newbie at a time; requests by Oldbies to adopt another Newbie will only be heard via [link=http://boards.theforce.net/user.asp?usr=726885]Private Message[/link] and granted with just cause. After you have adopted a Newbie, it is recommended (but not mandatory) that you both make notation of your relationship in your signatures (E.g.: ?Adopter of User B,? and ?Adoptee of User A?).

    All Adopters are asked to continue to post within the [link=http://boards.theforce.net/board.asp?brd=10181]Welcome New Users[/link] forum and [link=http://www.zaex.net/WNU/]Newbie Adoptions [V4.0][/link] Thread to show your involvement in this program and the forum it resides within (note: this may also help you locate your potential adoptee). All those whom have not posted within a period of two weeks in the forum and or thread will be removed from the list until further contact can be attempted. Lastly, Adopters are encouraged let their Adoptee progress at their own pace and to wait until their Adoptee feels that they are ready to move on and emerge from ?under your protective wing.? ;) [/li]

    [li]A step-to-step guide to becoming an Adopter:

    1. Make sure you meet the qualifications needed to become an Adopter.

    2. Express your desire to become an adopter either by posting on this topic (i.e. ?I would like to become an Adopter! Sign

    Well, it's great to be back. I sent you a message Pash, which include my intentions. As for your message Julia, I look forward to hearing from you shortly. Perhaps both you and Pash can get me caught up on the times :p .

    Well, I've looked into it. And, I have no reason to lead me to believe that you'd be a horrible Adopter. So, allow me to first, contact Julia, and recieve back all of those documents required for updating the main listings. As well as get the low down of what's happened within this thread in my absence.

    Once completed with that, I will add all those wishing to adopt, and within the requirements criteria, to the listings to begin their new journey ;) .

    No yoda-is-my-homeboy, it's a grand day. It's a great thing to see. Especially since the lack of interest in the past few months. I am truely blessed to see this many users taking a stand and helping others. And, it is my personal prayer that this will continue.

    I see no problem with that. So, allow me to get this straight. You wish to be adopted, correct? :confused: Is there any particular length of time? Or, would you not mind a long adoption if your Adopter opted for one? :confused:

    Just wished to ask, seeing as though you were listed prior to your leave.

    "

    Oh, sorry for the miscommunication. I've been away for two weeks, and I sadly forget everything... :( However, upon a brief viewing of your post count, and registration date, I'm going to have to say...that I will permit your adoption. Now, if you only had 44 post counts above the requirements, and, left the JC for a total of three months, then returned, I'd have to say that you need to kinda wait it out ;) . However, since I've looked over your passed posts, I was amazed to see that you've been active ever since that time period. So, it is to that extent that I am happy to announce that I comply with your ability to adopt another user. Train them well.

    All I ask is that you wait to be listed, until I can get the main coding from the temp coordinator :) .

    No, don't appologize. I rather hear about this problem now, then allow it to build up and escolate into something greater. Or even worse, cause you to get frustrated and give up on Adoptions. I'll look into this. I know it's been going on for sometime. And, I am sure that there are valid reasons behind it. May I ask, "How long have you had this Adoptee?" :confused:

    This may help to be the determining factor if I re-list you as a free Adopter or not ;) .

    Well, as much as I'd hate to say it. It appears as if we have no other choice, but to release that Newbie :( , and pair you back up with another. When there are more listed ;) .

    milney: "How many pages IS the update in MSword now strid?"

    I am unsure. As I have lost all the important items for updating the main listings... :( Thankfully Morgaine, the Temp Co-ordinator was holding on to them for me. I can only assume that they are about maybe 8-9 pages long :) .

    Oh... :( this is the part of the job that hurts me everytime. To see a Newbie slip into the cracks of RL issues and disappear. But, do not fret. As I will have you paired back up again in no time ;) .

    How's the adopting going? *feels horribly out of everything, because Darth School has had his hold on poor Nelli for ages*

    Looking good so far... :)

    Co-ordinational Notepad: "New Pair"

    I'd like to annouce, since I am unable to post a new update till the next page, that we have a new pair. Please give a round of applause for [link=http://boards.theforce.net/user.asp?usr=370363] [hl=60699F]obi-wan-kanathan[/hl][/link] who has graciously adopted [link=http://boards.theforce.net/user.asp?usr=1131743] [hl=60699F]TheFettMan[/hl][/link] as his new Adoptee =D= . Congrats you two. I am anxious to see what is to come of you both as you both grow in JC forum knowledge :) .

    As well as welcome back, jedi_of_darkness, PatttyB0123, & saberlord99 as potential Adopters ;) .
