No. It was split alphabetically. It was a way for several mentors to look over the trainnee mentors more efficiently.

Science Mentors and Teams
That's right - it's to help make things easier to manage - there's no ranking between teams - we chose A to D to keep things simple.

Mentor Selection
We decide when to promote Trainees after we monitor your posts, then we all talk and decide what to do. Just contribute and give good posts and your on your way!

Here are some general things we (the mentors look at while the trainee mentees are posting.

-The most important, I believe is, is the information you post up helpful? If someone wants to know something about the microscrope, for example, you shouldn't write "microscopes are cool." Sometimes people misunderstand being helpful as having to have an answer to everything. Sometimes, being helpful means thinking of possible ideas, not necessarily the right ones.

-How clear are your posts? Please, please do not use internet acronyms and PUNCTUATION. dOnt yOu tHinK this is HaRD to READ it is aLso VeRY AnnoYIn nO one KnOws wHeRe ur senTenCes sTarT and EnD iT doEnt hElp cLariFY ur wRitiNg You get my point.

-Also, important is how do you treat your mentees, fellow trainee mentees, and mentors. Be nice. Enough said.

Somethings I look for, though I think most of the other mentors would agree with me is QUESTIONS. What questions do you ask?

First of all, I'm very happy that you ask these questions, because no one in my team has asked me so far what I'm looking for.

Becoming a Mentor
One more thing that we look out for is how frequently and consistently the trainee participates in our forum discussions. We're looking for young scientists who have a genuine interest in sharing their knowledge, and learning from others here at the Science Project Forum. A simple indication of how interested a person is, would be how regularly he or she contributes! :)

Thanx so much for making a tranii mentor

You're welcome
Glad to see that you're enjoying this. You've been very helpful. One small suggestion (and this goes out to all of our Trainee Mentors) - do be careful of typos and write in clear, complete sentences - it will help others understand what you're trying to say. :star:

You don't have a team until you join a trainee group.
