If someone breaks a rule or two while they are getting used to the site, i don't think its that big of a deal if its an honest mistake. It'll get pointed out and they'll learn.
There are so many rules on this site that aren't in the actual list of rules, so they probably will break one of two of them. Most of them aren't rules that someone would probably question whether or not its allowed. For example, i highly doubt that a new member would ask their 'mentor' is posting gifs/images with watermarks are allowed, thats just something that they would learn from reading the stickys. (On a side note: if all of these little rules that have been added on over time were clarified and added to the actual list of rules and not just stickyd at the top of a section, i think it wouldn't be ask much of a problem because all of the rules would be in one place and people wouldn't have to go on a scavenger hunt to find them.)
But really, its unnecessary and if new members just look over all of the rules, then they should be fine, and if they break one or two along the way, its not the end of the world.
Not everyone has to have a mentor. I personally think it would help a lot of people on here, new members might not read the stickys and read the rules properly. If everyone read the rules properly we wouldn't have people breaking them. I think it's a good idea.
