MENTORSHIP PROGRAM

Introduction

Welcome to our new mentorship program! In the comments here, users who wish to become mentors can sign up, and users who wish to become mentees can request a mentor as well! Before signing up to become a mentor or a mentee, please read this full blog post.

How it works

Experienced coders/users will sign up in the comments. If they meet the requirements, they will become Mentors. Then, we'll put them on this blog with info on what types of coding they specialize in, how active they are, etc. Users who wish to become mentees will then message a mentor about what they want to learn, etc. Mentors will then teach their mentees this! They can do this through message walls, blogs, etc.! Mentorship doesn't just have to be about coding, it can also just be about editing, running a wiki, and FANDOM education in general!
Mentorship programs can last any length from a few days to a month! Please let your mentor know how much commitment you wish to put into this.

Requirements

Here are the requirements that mentors must meet.

  • 50+ Edits
  • 1 month+ on the wiki
  • Advanced knowledge in one of the following categories, or moderate knowledge in two: CSS, HTML, Wikicode, JS, Python.
  • No history of blocks
  • Edits/Contributes/Posts at least once a week
  • Has a good attitude and is kind to users

Currently, we are not taking admins/mods/etc., since being a mentor is already part of their job description. Being a Mentor is not quite the same as staff, however, as you are teaching people how to code instead of enforcing guidelines and editing, etc.

How to Sign Up

If you want to become a mentor, please fill out the following form in the comments:

  • What is your main account? If you prefer a nickname, what is it?
  • How many edits do you have?
  • How long have you been on this wiki?
  • What are your pronouns (optional)
  • How active are you? Are you taking mentees currently? How many mentees will you take, max?
  • What do you specialize in?
  • How should your mentees contact you?
  • How much wiki experience do you have? Coding, administration, etc.
  • Why should you get this position? You may also provide recommendations (users who can vouch for you) if you feel the need.

We will accept up to around 10-12 mentors, with a first-come-first-serve policy. We may decline forms if they do not meet the requirements.

If you want to become a mentee, please fill out the following form on the message wall of the Mentor you wish to have:

  • What is your main account? If you prefer a nickname, what is it?
  • What are your pronouns?(optional)
  • What do you want to learn? BE SPECIFIC
  • How much FANDOM experience do you have? Coding, administration, etc.
  • How much time/effort do you want to put into this mentorship?
  • How do you want to learn this? Blogs, messages, resourced links, etc.

Mentors reserve the right to deny a form if they are full or they cannot teach you. If this happens, please request a different mentor!

Please address the top of the message with the nickname of the user you're sending it to! The link to the message wall: Message Wall:Null (redlink appears due to the fact that there aren't any messages there yet, but hopefully there will be soon!)
Thanks so much,

Edit from Majestic: Amazing job, Clever! We'll be able to put a profile tag with 'Mentor' on it for all you Mentors. If a Mentor does become part of the Staff team, they can choose whether they would like to continue being one.

Yours,
