i'd like to hear some feedback from some of the other *active* ambassadors so im gonna tag (sorry to disturb) 1. @ash2326 2. @ParthKohli 3. @mathslover 4. @karatechopper 5. @rebeccaskell94 6. @GOODMAN
Note: by feedback i mean regarding whether you think it's a good or bad idea (and why). not to who you think are the specialists. let's discuss it if and when this idea is accepted. Just want to clear before someone misunderstands it
I think that this is *exactly* what ambassadors are there for :)
but they said our mission, should we accept, is to welcome new users with a big smile on our face \(\Huge \ddot \smile\)
therefore i figured maybe we can do this sort of thing also
Yeah there is no harm in that, we could introduce new users to expert old users. What are your views @cshalvey ?
According to me ur idea is great and also i must mention that i had tried that also ... like ; In a question that i can do and the student is not getting perfect answer then i just tag that person who is perfect in that topic and type sorry i can not help u with this but may be xyz help u ....Also yes !!! i think this is a part of the amby's duty !! thanks
when i had the idea..my idea was not to tag a person in questions..we do that all the time..when we cant answer the question..regardless if it's a new user or old user...what i meant was while we're welcoming them we can tell them who's good at what...but heh that was just my idea...keep the feedback coming :)
I like this idea! My only thought, is that we should make sure it's okay with those users before we keep tagging them and allowing others to do the same. c:
Okay. Time for a poor-joke.... Can we call people in such a way that they are not tagged but they are still notified that we have called them? XD
like i said my idea was not "tag" but introduce lol
Yeah, I understand your point, lg, I'm just thinking we should make sure the new users know that. I really do lie this idea though :D
hmm okay since it's agreed that it's okay (although still awaiting confirmation from @cshalvey ) why dont we discuss who we think are specialists? just a discussion...nothing official yet i know two specialists (in my opinion) 1. dumbcow - statistics specialist 2. Hero - teaching specialist
3. Lgba --making tutorials 4. vishwesshrimali5--allrounder 5. mukushla --good in maths 6. annas ----great user for computer science 7. mathteacher----motivating user and ready to help us anytime 8. nbouscal -----great user .. 9. unklerhaukus----helping hand 10. callisto ---- good in maths me ? :D
@lgbasallote is that list right ?
Hey guys, great idea! So, my only concern is that we already have cases where certain users (like satellite) get spammed by a TON of mentions in their posts. So... I think what might be a good idea is to selectively use this approach for those questions that are very difficult. Meaning, if it's a statistics question, but not of an extremely high level, we wouldn't tag a 'subject matter expert' - but we would if it's extremely high. Keep in mind, we have many users who can answer questions, but if they see another user tagged, they may not even attempt the question out of respect for that user. Just a thought, but again, I think it's a great idea, I think just one that we would use selectively. Thanks!
He has a good point.
Lgba there are lots of people doing that who aren't even Ambassadors. Is nothing really new, but its a good thing for an Amby to do.
just to be clear..my idea is not tagging. yes, that is not new. everyone does it. that's the whole point of the tag anyway. what i imagined is while ambassadors are welcoming users (whether in chat or direct message) while they are conversing, the ambassadors would recommend a few people to the new users. just to give them a general idea on who they need to specifically know. i think it will help in their coping in OpenStudy if they actually knew someone rather than randomly tagging the high level users (plus they make new friends). i get tagged a lot to statistics questions, which i have no idea on. if that was what you guys had in mind too then wonderful!
That's 100% true. Since the new users aren't sure of who to get help from they go to someone with a high SmartScore.
