Proposed FAC mentoring scheme[edit]

Following discussions on the WP:FAC talkpage and with the agreement of the FAC coordinators, Mike Christie and I have finalized a "page of instructions" relating to the proposed voluntary mentoring scheme for new FAC nominators. The final draft can be viewed here.

We hope to begin the scheme shortly, on a trial basis. However, I think it would be unwise to go live until we have around a dozen or so potential mentors signed up – I hope many more than that will sign eventually. As your contribution to the discusssion indicated that you generally favoured the idea of a voluntary mentoring scheme, I am now inviting you to add your name to the list of possible mentors on the instruction page. I emphasize that the extent to which you commit yourself to this scheme is entirely a matter for you; you incur no specific obligation by adding your name. If anything about the scheme is not clear to you, please drop me a note and I'll try to explain. Brianboulton (talk) 11:42, 21 August 2016 (UTC)

@Brianboulton: Others would be more helpful than I could. I can ce tolerably well (probably not the best, but very far from the worst) and am totally unafraid to dive into the thicket of references and notes. Also enjoy finding sources for information, including adding new info or verifying existing. But I know nothing about several other aspects, ESPECIALLY images. I have asked Nikkimaria for help once or twice and she has given me tips, but overall to be honest, if there were a mentor program, I'd almost rather be a mentee than a mentor. :-)  Lingzhi ♦ (talk) 02:30, 22 August 2016 (UTC)
You underestimate yourself, Ling. When I was a novice editor oh, so long ago, you were most helpful to me. Mind you, you were called Ling Nut then. I still think you could help less experienced editors, so please be a good boy and reconsider. Brianboulton (talk) 22:14, 23 August 2016 (UTC)


Many thanks for your helpful copy-editing on my essay. I don't expect you'll agree with all of the conclusions I come to, but it is gratifying that you've obviously taken the trouble to read it. Could I impose further on you by asking if you felt it might be useful enough to justify moving it into Wikipedia: namespace? Regards --RexxS (talk) 16:27, 24 August 2016 (UTC)
