    just my points of view...i dont think there should be a minimum smartscore..being SS 55 doesnt mean you've been on the site long..for example parth reached 57 in one day..so did my dupes..my point being SS shouldnt measure ambassadorship another point is the inactivity..true that ambies should be always available but forcing them to be online is like forcing the mods to be online during the dead hours and also..the ambassador program originally had "shift schedules"..that means all day there would be an online ambassador..that's what i think should be implemented instead also..each amby should be assigned a certain group (just like before) the new ambies go to the less populated groups..and the veteran ambies go to math, physics, etc.

    @lgbasallote You have a good point on the SS thing. I thought 6 weeks would be a *more* than fair enough time-frame. It doesn't really *force* them to be on at all. I love the idea of shift hours. At this point we are all new ambassadors so assigning groups is irrelevant.

    Okay, guys. So I looked back through the two posts that are specifically related to the ambassador's program. I think that some basics we need to have 2 group leaders that kind of watch the rest of them. We could even cycle the group leaders out maybe once every month to give everyone a chance to show leadership in this area. We'd have to have an even number of Ambassadors and we'll just make Amby buddies kind of thing. Then, maybe like every other week or so all the Ambassadors meet up and discuss what's going on and future plans. We put together anything we may (as a group) want to talk about with the mods, and any new ideas we may have for the betterment of the group. Thoughts?

At least 3 other members must recommend them, as well as another ambassador or mod d. They need to have good character, be mature, responsible, and be able to control their angers and jealousies. none is said about how long the person has been on site..im saying he should have 30 days studied

    Hmm, okay so what are the issues right now? I've skimmed through everything everyone has written so far, and there are a couple of things I want to bring up. First of all, ultimately, the role of an Ambassador is to serve as a 'welcomer' or 'greeter' to new users, and to let them know how OpenStudy works, the rules, etc. Additionally, Ambassadors don't find out about new features before anyone else, I'm not sure how that came up. To be honest, feature changes change so often, and aren't always implemented in a 'one-event' way, we wouldn't really be able to implement that properly either. Also, I would be careful about adding too many responsibilities and roles to being an Ambassador - it takes away from its true purpose - to welcome and guide new users. Keep it up everyone, well done so far ;)

    i wasn't stating that ambassadors *should* be the first to know about the features..i think i was misunderstood (again)..what i meant was that a duty of an ambassador should be to tell the new users about the features of the site (as part of the welcoming and greeting) because the docx didnt really go into specifics i was just stating some *possible* specifics

    and my mediator idea just came from my trauma on moderators and administrators (no offense) and i'd love to have some ambassadors talk to the mods for me...im sure a lot of others have problems talking to moderators as well. i just thought ambassadors would be a good mediator since their duty is to social interactions with users right?

    Okay guys I think we're gonna do this. The Committee and mods will go through every 4-6 weeks and find committed users that are interested and submit them. We will put in say 12 submissions and accept 9 of them maybe. Bribery is not acceptable.

    okay! New idea...Since the voting thing isn't going very well, what if we accept ideas for possible ambassadors but as "the committee" we go through them and vote on them within the group?

    ok how about this..we can make a post saying that anyone who wants to be an ambassador can message us? we can have a small chat where all of us are in it and talk, interview them and see if they are up for job? idk bout that. but for ideas, in the interview we can ask them that as well. And another for ideas, anyone can message us saying what they would like the ambassadors to have and we can make a list then ha leader discussion ourselves and bring the topics up for discussion? sorry i just woke up and am blabbing heh xD

    Haha you're awesome @karatechopper um I think the msging this would work if we only had them messaging on or two people. I don't want them to feel that messaging all of us was necessary or have us forget who asked if they got lost in other messages. The Chat thing sounds cool but very time consuming. Maybe we could make up a resume type of thing that still asks basic questions. I think the Ambassadors Committee meeting every so often is going to have to be necessary though. :) You're doing great :D

    @rebeccaskell94 WEll thank you! i think you are awesome as well:P then in that case if we don't want our message box cluttered, lets pick 2 people to get the requests and idea. Then two more people for rounding up and thinking about the process of training and then just maybe one person in the mix of it who is on OS a lot and can handle the long day on OS

    It's not so much getting cluttered but having 2 people that get msg's could be confusing once everyone comes together. I think in regards to messaging we should make it one person. (specifically for the people who are wanting to become ambassadors) Just so we don't miss anyone or anything like that.

    Okay @karatechopper I'm email him so he actually gets the message and forms are like applications. We put information we feel we need on it and they have to answer it. Say we want to know how old they are...(idt we do, but still) umm why they want to be ambassador, etc. etc. It's like a time management interview lol
