AWCoding- Mentor
Version 1.0.0
Release Date: 16th September 2010

Software Provided and coded by AWCoding

What Software Is:
It auto assigns a mentor unless they entered a correct referrer at registration then that person becomes there mentor. The software has an on and off feature for PMing the mentor about his new mentee as well as auto adding the two (mentor and mentee) as friends. You can select what usergroups are able to mentor and from these groups it selects a random person per new user registered to mentor. The software is used more or less as a help and go to person for new users to go to for help and questions. Makes things more personable and a point of contact for users. This will reduce heavy traffic to the owner/admins and spread help through the other groups (moderators and supermods). You can even create your own Mentor group and select from that group. You can also edit the mentor of a user by editing the user in adminCP. There is an option to show the mentee in userCP who there mentor is and a link to their profile.

I like the idea behind this. I'll have to see if my members would be interested in it.

One thing that I can think of is some sort of metrics and an expiration date for the mentor.

So... metrics on maybe how many posts the newbie and the mentor have both posted in (assumes they are conversing with each other), how many PM's they've each sent to/from one another (but not the content). Last time each was online, etc.

Kind of a dashboard if you will so me as an admin can see whether or not the system isn't working for us, specific members aren't doing the mentor job, etc.

There should also be a button in the members settings that allows them to say "I no longer need a mentor" or a way for the mentor to cut that cord. It should also do this after X days or something as well (optional).

I could also see this being more useful (to me anyway) if I could pull mentor out of a specific group for someone. I know you said you can do this, but I was thinking more along the lines of multiple groups. For instance:

Someone signs up on the forums (I have no need to assign a mentor at that time personally). However, when someone is assigned a specific usergroup, THEN I would want to assign them a mentor, from a specific usergroup pool.

I run a gaming guild, we have several hundred active members. We play many games. So when someone was added to the secondary group X, then I would want to assign them a mentor from secondary group Y. Hope that makes sense.

Anyway, what you have sounds really cool, what I described above works best for "me" so I understand if it's not going to happen. But I'd love such a system!

Ohh, something else.

Custom PM's for when someone is setup for them as a mentor. Meaning, if they join secondary group X, then they should get a PM designed specifically for that group.

Not sure where ive gone wrong but the mentor shows up in the profile options in the admin cp and you can enter the user id of the mentor you wish to have for the user!
But no other signs of it on profile pages and no pm sent to the mentor or user when signing up about it!
Any help would be great thanks in advance!

Have you activated the PM on new registration? They only are sent when an account is activated/moderated.
