36. AravindG Group Title

is there a third batch?

37. Opcode Group Title

@AravindG Preetha said: "Rebecca, c'mon. Why does it suck for new Ambis? Here is the deal. We need to be sure that you are who you say you are (hence photo id). And we need your real name because we want to make sure you are who you say you are. Now you are a member of a team, and representing OpenStudy. Its big time. And opCode, I hope you will apply to become an Ambi. One of your fans has already recommended you!" So either there is one or you apply now for next year.

55. poopsiedoodle Group Title

$$\Huge\text{^}$$

56. rebeccaskell94 Group Title

Carniel *has* been asking for over a year and he keeps being told he'll be added and the mods and admin aren't keeping their side of the deal. I'd be frustrated, too. I also suggest they add him like they SAID they would.

57. karatechopper Group Title

Wait..what?

58. karatechopper Group Title

@Carniel did you put in an application for ambassadors?

59. ParthKohli Group Title

@karatechopper He did. Back in the day When cavemen dug caves And the mountains sucked lava Back in the day. When dinosaurs wandered Around the land When the man dreamed Of free meals Oh, KC, oh. Where were you sleeping? It's been almost a year Since Carniel requested

60. ParthKohli Group Title

What rhyme scheme would that be? T_T

61. stgreen Group Title

when are they calling a new batch??

62. stgreen Group Title

@Preetha

63. karatechopper Group Title

Well...we need to start training soon..so I would think about another 3 weeks at the least. but I am sure preetha will know more. @stgreen

64. EvonHowell Group Title

What does training start? @karatechopper

65. EvonHowell Group Title

when*

66. Naerro Group Title

Grats everyone :D

67. rebeccaskell94 Group Title

That's bc you're not an ambassador.

68. drummerboyswag Group Title

good job guys

69. Carniel Group Title

@Karatechopper yes... I did another application around Jan 8th :\

70. Opcode Group Title

71. Carniel Group Title

Seriously doubt its gonna happen.... They can't ever keep true to what they say apparently.

72. mathslover Group Title

Well @Carniel dont lose hopes , might be you get chance in the third batch of ambassadors

73. Carniel Group Title

I'm not waiting for a third batch... Seems to me they just picking random ppl

74. mathslover Group Title

Well , be positive friend. And of course not, they are picking the people ( ambassadors ) from the statements given by them and their performance basis as per my thinking... You just keep helping the needy ones and of course get help from here. Even you will not believe but most probably they monitor how you are helping students and responding to their problems. The mods and admins will recognise you soon :) Best of luck.

75. Carniel Group Title

I mean seriously bro there is a guy with a SS of 15 and another 32 who made it with ease...

76. Carniel Group Title

So it takes 2 years to recognize me o_O? Blues is the only person that actually notices me

77. mathslover Group Title

Well when you told me this at a first glance I also thought of "random picking" BUT one thing we are forgetting that the statements and why do you want to be an ambassador matters a lot, oh! that is what I am guessing, I don't know the reality but friend really they can not do random picking :) as per my experience in this site they are not partial and are fair to all.

78. Carniel Group Title

Doesn't seem that way...

79. mathslover Group Title

There is something going in the minds of admins and moderators , I am currently thinking of a pattern like they are selecting some ambassadors first from 1-20 serial numbers and then so on... this is just my imagination but just wait for the third batch or any announcement or any comment here by admin or a mod.

80. Carniel Group Title

I'm not gonna wait for a third batch... Everyone who was defending me thought I was gonna get the position, yet I didn't get anything. Even people who didn't reply thought I was gonna get it...

81. mathslover Group Title

Well Carnie I still remember that you were also a candidate ( choice ) in the coming batch when i became amby, I was also shocked when you were not declared as an amby even in the first batch but still I request you to keep a hope at least a little one ?

82. Carniel Group Title

1. Applied las year 2. Amby committee 3. Applied this year

83. mathslover Group Title

coming one : 4 . Selected as amby.

84. Carniel Group Title

0.000000001% chance .-.

85. mathslover Group Title

^ This is enough in mathematics for a miracle... :)

86. Carniel Group Title

Of me not getting Amby? I agree

87. mathslover Group Title

Congrats everyone!!!!!!!!!!! :)

99. rebeccaskell94 Group Title

Congrats, ladies and gents. c:

100. Zelda Group Title

What is an ambassador? Oh and congrats to anyone who got it.

101. Opcode Group Title

@Zelda Firstly that's an awesome name you got :D Secondly here is the answer to your question: http://openstudy.com/study#/updates/509b0acfe4b058d497436524

102. Zelda Group Title

@Opcode, thank you, I was going for link, but settled on Zelda :p, anyhow thanks.

103. karatechopper Group Title

Sooo, you think that ambys are chosen at random? Wrong, we look through every application and we nominate by looking to see if you have the characteristics we are looking for. Some people give a totally lame excuse for them needing to be an amby, therefore we cross them out and move on. Don't give up! @Carniel Keep trying!!

104. poopsiedoodle Group Title

Yeah, what KC said.

105. rebeccaskell94 Group Title

No KC I don't think they're chosen at random and LONG before you were a mod Carniel was told he'd be made an ambassador. So if he was already "chosen" I think the mods need to keep their word and make him one. Damn he can have my A if he wants it. It doesn't make me feel any better or worse about myself.

106. SWAG Group Title

@Carniel Don't give up bro, same thing happened to me, you will certainly make it! :)

107. Carniel Group Title

@Swag @Karatechopper @rebeccaskell94 Whats the point of constantly trying when they said I was suppose to become one and yes I think you guys pick at random since I see ppl who just started in OS became Amby

108. SWAG Group Title

@Carniel they dont really pick at random but more pick from what they see in the application but i do agree that they should pick more carefully and that they should have kept their word. i'm sorry you did not get picked. Trust me i know how it feels i think i have been waiting longer than you for this and they have been telling me foreverrrrrrrrrrrr that i would get picked but i NEVER did. After a year of waiting i finally made it. Don't worry bro you will make it.

109. rebeccaskell94 Group Title

Yeah, I think you'd be a good amby so don't stop trying. I'll do what I can to help ya out on it, because you deserve it.

110. EvonHowell Group Title

@Carniel I believe that They do NOT pick at random they go through the applications 1 by 1 and read the reasons they applicant is applying and if they like what they see on the application then they put you on the list for Amby, if they don't like the reason or think that it is just some lame excuse they cross out your name but they Don't pick at random in my belief. @Carneil You will probably be in the 3rd batch of Amby this year. DON'T lose hope there is still time!

111. karatechopper Group Title

@Preetha Can explain the process of choosing an amby..

112. Carniel Group Title

3rd batch is most likely a few months or 2 away and I'm not gonna w8 that long...

113. poopsiedoodle Group Title

@carniel did you actually apply for the second batch? just wondering...

114. Carniel Group Title

@poopsiedoodle No I just waited and expected to become Amby... (Srry for sarcasm) That's like me standing in line for food and there isn't any...

115. Preetha Group Title

We look at your statement, your history, behavior patterns and ask the mods for their opinions. Mods have veto power!!! So if you want to be an Ambi, be nice, be nice and stay calm!!!

116. EvonHowell Group Title

@Carneil You don't need to have that kind of attitude honestly just by the way you've been complaining and your sarcasm I wouldn't put you as an Amby just my opinion.

117. zaynahf Group Title

@carniel at the end of the day, ambassadors are just like regular users, and just have the purple A.. theres really nothing special about it, your extent of power is the same.

118. poopsiedoodle Group Title

but it makes you feel better @zaynahf :P

119. rebeccaskell94 Group Title

lol

120. zaynahf Group Title

Yeah, but that feeling lasts for like a few days.. until you realize theres nothing to it.

121. TheViper Group Title

Thanx @Preetha & everyone who supported me :)
