I love that idea Twilight.
If I think back to when I was a newbie, I would have really liked someone to come and help me with everything, show me where things were, friend me and become one of my first buddies on here. Like a guide at a new school.

The option to choose whether you want a mentor is a good idea, because some new members might already be familiar with WI, other Bearville forums or have looked around BI before deciding to join.

It's really noticeable that any new members who join only post once or twice then never come back, don't read the rules and get banned the next day, or type in text speak without use of punctuation which can annoy some members and put them off exchanging VMs with these members.
If I think back to this time last year, members like Sammie and Choco had just joined, and look what position they hold in BI now. Recently there haven't been many members who after joining, manage to get over 100 posts and come on every day.
