What Mentors Should Know

Some Abbreviations In Common Use

Abbrevation Meaning
OI Orientation Island
OIP Orientation Island Public
HI Help Island
HIP Help Island Public
TP Teleport
BRT Be Right There

There are many more but I think that these are the most important for the group chat.

Suggestions

  • If someone asks for "An Italian Mentor @ OI 3 for xyz", please don't ask for a TP in return. It's way easier for you to open up the Map, type Orientation Island 3 and hit the TP button then it is for the other one to find your profile in the group or in search to TP you.
  • To be able to answer questions about the tutorials on Orientation Island, you should have a look at SLURL HERE, catch an Orientation HUD (beneath the HELP ISLAND sign in the middle of the island) and then start the tutorial on your own to get an impression on where problems might occur.
  • Save one unused Orientation HUD in your inventory. It's not possible to reset scripts at the Orientation Islands and if a newbie and/or a bug breaks a HUD, it's good to have one handy to replace it.
  • If someone in the group chat asks for a specific Mentor and you wish to attend, please answer something like ok, be right there. This way, other Mentors are informed that this request is obsolete and there won't be about 10 Mentors popping up to just one request. Remember: We're more than 2500 people...


FAQs

How can I teleport someone to an Orientation Island?

The person you'd like to teleport needs to be another Mentor or a new resident on another Orientation Island and you got to activate the Admin Mode to enable teleports. The Admin Mode is switched on by pressing CTRL + ALT + V.
