    Hello everyone! :)

    This thread is for new members (newbies) to help them to get familiar with the JC and to get more involved in our community.

    Newbies - if you feel a bit lost, are overwhelmed by this big forum, want to get used to the forum and its nature quickly, want to avoid common rookie mistakes or just want to make friends, then this is the best place for it. Here you can find a nice adopter/master, who will answer all your questions and help you as much as possible.

    If you want to get adopted, just post it in this thread or send a PM to me, [link=http://boards.theforce.net/user.asp?usr=722822]Skiara[/link]. Then I will put you on the list of free newbies at the next update.

    After this you have three options to choose from:
    1. Waiting until an oldbie contacts you (this usually takes the longest time),
    2. Asking me, Skiara, if I can pair you up with one of the free oldbies (in this case it would be good if you could let me know about your interests, so I can find a good adopter),
    3. Sending one of the free oldbies a PM on your own (this is the fastest way).

    Oldbies - are you interested in being part of the adoption program and helping a new member? Then there are three things to know about it:
    First, you can only become an adopter/master, if you have been registered for at least four months and have at least 400 posts. This should help to keep a certain quality standard. Second, if you adopt an adoptee/padawan, the adoptee/padawan trusts in you and that?s why it would be good if you take care and help your adoptee/padawan as much as possible. Please answer all the questions concerning the boards, and overall stay in contact all the time of your adoption.

    And of course the third and last thing is the method of announcing your wish of adopting someone. If you want to adopt someone, just post in this thread or send a PM to me, Skiara, and let me know about up to three of your favourite boards. Then I put you on the list of free oldbies.

    After this you have two possibilities:
    1. Waiting until a newbie asks you to adopt them (this could take a long time),
    2. Going through the list of free newbies on your own (this is the fastest way).

    [b][u]Jedi Training Program:[/u][/b]

    To give this adoption program a little bit more SW feeling, I created a Jedi & Sith Training Program for all newbies and oldbies who want to go through a Master-Padawan relationship.
    If you join the Training Program, there are five task-lists (separated in weeks, concerning the boards), which you have to solve. The tasks will be mainly about board-specific history, technical stuff and behaviour (inkluding where to post what). Your Master is the one who direct the tasks to you and says if you did them right. He/She is asked to give an update after every finished week.
    After your Master has posted or pmed me that you have finished the fifth week, you get sent the final tasks by me (Skiara). You have to send your answers/solutions of the final tasks back to me. After solving the final tasks successfully, your Master is free to give you the rank of a Knight.

    Don?t forget, in the end you?re always working in a team to solve those tasks. ;)

    [b]Masters[/b], if you and your Padawan want to participate, all you have to do is sending me a PM and I give you the tasks. Please, make sure to post after finishing all tasks of the weekly tasks at the adoption thread. Then I can change your status about in which week you are right now.

    [b]Adopters[/b], if you don?t want to join the Training Program, but still wanting to use parts of the task-lists, then just send me a PM and you?ll get it, too.

    [b]Important[/b]: Please, don?t give out the task list to anyone else. It belongs to the program and it wouldn?t be nice to see it spreading around so the new people know all tasks before they join this Jedi & Sith Training Program. Thank you!

    [hr]

    The adoption-ship ends whenever you both (adopter and adoptee) agrees that your adoptee is ready to discover the boards on her/his own>

    Nice idea with seperating the posts, as well. Great work! :D

    Thanks everyone for your kind words! [:D]
    Yep, it was really much work, but somehow it was nice work. ;) :)

    And if you have any suggestions how I can improve Adoptions, please, let me know. :)

    Thanks again. :)




    Narrabie, you should listen to Odd_Ball and Revanlord. You'll get friends very soon and we would be happy if you stay at WNU for a while (for example in the hugging thread or Newbie Welcome Party).
    And I have put you on the list of free newbies. If you want to get adopted fast, you should let me know (and maybe about your interests) or send one of the free oldbies above a Private Message (PM). :)


    Eirate, as long as you're an adoptee yourself you can't adopt anyone. But after your adoption and after your adopter releases you, I'll be happy to add you to the list. :)


    Darth Mischievous, I have put you on the list of free oldbies. I hope you get an adoptee soon. :)

    Thanks, Skiara.

    :)

    I'm available to help anyone interested in posting in that particular forum.

    It can be somewhat of a challenge to adjust to it, because it is a completely different milieu then other forums on these boards. More mature discussion takes place, and members are required to post in a more in-depth fashion.

    Sometimes, people can be surprised by the general atmosphere and rules of the place, and I've seen even other mods from other forums be surprised at the differences in posting and rules...

    OBI-BEN-KENOBI, maybe you can adopt Tracy? :p
    Nah, seriously, have you send one of the free newbies a PM? And if yes, have they answered?


    Thanks, Odd_Ball, Gaiatha and Allegra. :D

    Not really, I'm planning the further improvements, so I have something to do. But after that... you might be right, Gaiatha. ;) :)


    Darth Mischievous, you sound really knowledgeable about that board. I'm glad to have you onboard. I hope you find an adoptee soon. :)
    The best (fastest) way would be to pm one of the free newbies, but I guess you know that already, right? ;)


    iLoveAnaking7, I have put you on the list of free oldbies. Good luck in getting an adoptee soon. :)

    We have thought about that earlier, Gaiatha. We didn't do that because we don't want to make them feeling uncomfortable. But I'll think about it again.

    Do you mean to write down something in a post or something which I can add to the newbies in the list? :)



    Jimbo, Tracy is a Mod. :)
