Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So it is ok if we go to new users posts and welcome em if we don't know how to do their problem? i have been wondering this for a little while now @BostonBlue

BostonBlue

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2this is a good question! what do you experienced ambassadors do? it's obviously ideal if you can answer their question. . . but i've seen examples where someone else was answering the question and an ambi jumped in and posted a welcome. i guess we wouldn't want to just welcome them without anyone answering the question and leave them hanging. we want their first experience to be welcoming but also that they get their question answered. those are my thoughts. other folks?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5if anyone is already answering, WAIT till the explanation finishes entirely, then you can jump in and welcome. you can welcome new users even if you couldn't answer them. i would say something like this, ' @... Hi, \(\Huge \mathcal{\text{Welcome To OpenStudy}\ddot\smile} \) While you wait to get help from other OS users,which you will get pretty soon, you can browse various features of this site, If you need any help browsing , you can ask (or message) me (or any other ambassador with a purple encircled A before their name.) Hope you have great learning experience with learning on OpenStudy. ' these are just my thoughts, anyone else welcome to add /share their own.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2this is great to have actual examples of welcome messages! the more the better! it really helps everyone, not just the new people, because we can all be helped by good ideas! one thing i noticed is that most people, in their welcome, refer new folks to the CoC  (usually just a mention and link at the end, which is good. we don't want it to look like we assume they're people who would cheat!) i like when people explain about the A's a @hartnn did above, because it may be obvious to us, but it isn't to new people.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5I think thats way too much LATEX, there is no need to write statements in LATEX, just one welcome using LATEX is much more than enough (even thats not required, but since it looks good, its worth it.) Remember, more the LATEX part , more time it will take to load the page, imagine what that comment of yours will do to a slow connection. Also, there are too much unnecessary details for day 1 user. Telling about ambies is ok, instead of telling about mods and find more subjects and medals(they might not want to know many things at once) , you can tell them about CoC. Keep it short and sweet .

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2i agree that it should be short and sweet  a welcome, telling them how ambassadors are there to help, mentioning code of conduct and link to it, letting them know how they can message you if they have a question. anyone who has anything much longer should take a look at some of the examples here, along with the discussion  and think about editing their message to be shorter.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@HAPPY10 That's great. Try to help students as much as you can. Welcome new users nicely and of course , follow the OpenStudy codeofconduct. If you follow some of these guidelines then there are surely some chances for you to become an ambassador. Oh! But don't forget to let us know how you helped and welcomed new users! Put the links in your profile page. Best of Luck!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2hi @happy10. (see how i put the @ in front of your name? that's a good thing to do when you ask a question of someone or reference them, bc/then they get a notification (under the little flag in the top left corner) and then they're alerted to the fact that you've asked them something.) i just happened to see this, but i might not have. anyway, i work for OpenStudy, i am Director of Community Engagement, so i do a lot of work with the Ambassador Program. @mathslover is giving you good advice. i see that you've sent in your application through the form. you might also want to go back to the original instructions at: http://openstudy.com/study#/updates/51475607e4b04cdfc5830ef7 (it's on the right in yellow) which explain the other things that you have to send in (and where to send them) in order to be considered as an ambassador.

I posted many of these latex codes here: \(\bf\large\color{blue}{(\underline{\href{/study#/updates/51b10358e4b05b167ed2f45e}{link}})}\) When users make (minor) mistakes or exhibit bad behavior, i usualy emphrasize the CoC and/or tell them they can ask ambassadors for help when they're having difficulties using the site. \(\large\sf Examples:\) http://openstudy.com/study#/updates/51c1d81ae4b0bb0a43603b41 http://openstudy.com/study#/updates/51c0dcb5e4b0a49e8c8f8b87 \(\large\sf Might\ be\ useful:\) \(\to\) Latex link to the CoC: \(\bf\href{/codeofconduct}{\color{red}{Code~of~Conduct}}\) `\(\bf\href{/codeofconduct}{\color{red}{Code~of~Conduct}}\)` \(\to\) Latex referral to another section: \(\large\sf \color{blue}{\underline{\href{ /study#/groups/mathematics}{Mathematics}}}\) `\(\large\sf \color{blue}{\underline{\href{ /study#/groups/mathematics}{Mathematics}}}\)` (alter /study#/groups/mathematics to refer to a different section, let's say for design it would be /study#/groups/design.
