Hey DDO!

By now I hope that everyone is aware of the New Member Mentorship Program. It's designed to help new members to this site become acclimated to the debating world and teach them the core concepts they'll need to succeed. You can find the post about it in the New Members Read Me thread here (http://www.debate.org...).

Currently we're getting a spike of applicants looking to be mentored. Which is absolutely fantastic! A small problem though - I don't have enough mentors to keep up with the demand.

As such, I'm asking any experienced member who is interested and willing to mentor new members to please get in touch with me! I appreciate all the help I can get!

I am experienced in debate but I am new to the site. So I am not experienced on the site so it needs to be defined.

Well versed in debate in general and on debate in this site. This really is a pretty self-explanatory thing...

I might be experienced enough.

Here's one of my good serious debates, if you could run through it maybe you could decide whether I'm experienced enough because I honestly don't know.

I think it would be best if mentors had some experience on the site as well, only because there are notable differences in how IRL debate functions and how it functions on DDO. The online format definitely influences strategy and argumentation.

Sadly I am not, the identity of my previous accounts is a matter between me, myself, and I.

There are places on the internet where pursuit of a mentor means something very different than what Zaradi is stating here. I wonder if Zaradi knows about those places.

hehehe

Sure, I can be a mentor. I'll probably just refer to Ragnar's stuff, but despite my lazy debating style, I actually know how to properly debate :P

Go vote on one of my debates. I'm not that smart, so it'll probably be an easy decision.
