i have a question..is it part of the ambassadors' duty to introduce the new users to the older users who are good at the specific questions the new user is asking about. to help visualize what im saying.. for example.. a new user is asking statistics question. one of openstudy's statistics expert (if not the best) is dumbcow so i think we should introduce the new user to dumbcow. if this is the case then i think the ambassadors should know *some* of the specialists of openstudy. i dont know. just a thought

    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

    but they said our mission, should we accept, is to welcome new users with a big smile on our face \(\Huge \ddot \smile\)

    Yeah there is no harm in that, we could introduce new users to expert old users. What are your views @cshalvey ?

    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

    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

    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!

    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.
