We are members on SL Mentor and Instructors Group owned by Linden Lab since 2006. For about 2 to 3 Weeks Linden Lab decided to close both groups.
Who and what do SL Mentor do for the community?
SL Mentor are those residents who volunteered to help new residents in SL, they hang out most of their dedicated time in Help Islands or in some HUB.
They answer questions, was being patient to help newbie, help them to find new items for free as start if they wish to look others than a usual newbie look and more…..
Theres alot SL Mentors in SL from all over the world in different languages and thats all for free. Some cant understand why closing the group since Linden Lab dont cost both groups anyway, well we cant understand it too. Theres was a big discussion as Linden held a meeting to tell us that our job as Mentor is finished, they dont need us anymore? well SL Mentor stays mentor with or without Linden Lab Tag.
This group was earlier supported by Linden Lab. Those are residents helding class and i was member of it since 2006. We teach building courses in different level, before you can teach any class earlier you need a class approval by Linden Lab.
On december 2006 Linden Lab decided to cut off all supports and benefits for all Instructor Member and we can teach classes, no need for any approval.
This group stay and bind us all Instructor for some tips and tricks or if someone need any stuff that they can use for their class or any project.
Last November 2009b Linden Lab wants to close this group too, same time as they announce SL Mentor being closed.
TO ALL SL MENTORS AND INSTRUCTORS GROUP MEMBERS……………..YOU HAVE DONE A WELL GOOD JOB FOR THE COMMUNITY!
IF YOU HAVE FUN HELPING NEW RESIDENTS KEEP ON GOING!!!!!!!
