User:Zai Lynch/Old Profile
I rezzed 4648 days ago and hit one of the old Orientation Islands for German residents, like the sims Goethe or Hesse. In the beginning of my Second Life, I was quite lost. It took me some days to make friends who helped me to find my way. But I got to add that the waiting and searching was worth it, 'cause I found some of the greatest and most polite people around.
One of them, Lum Pfohl, got an awesome and very helpful page around the corner. Furthermore, she was the one who pushed me to become a volunteer. Thank you!!
On January 10th 2008, I was accepted to become an apprentice Mentor, visited the initial orientation session the same day and been moved to the Mentors group one day after. By now, I'm in the Linguist, Scribe, Coach, Buddy and Apprentice Buddy role, so feel free to drop me an IM any time, if you got a concern where I might help you with. If I'm not responding, I'm afk :-P
I'm a collector of Linden Teddys and got my first one from Sidewinder who almost knocked me down with a fast red car while he was testing a new client and while I was searching for Enus hidden Teddy in Linden Village. I read in Mia's profile that she would love to trade her teddy for a resident one, so I started to reactivate my building
As a Minesweeper addict, I'm ceaselessly trying to break CG Lindens highscore in front of his home in Linden Village. Moreover, I'm a fan of old fashioned board- and computergames adopted in SL like Chess or SLtris and such. Have a look at the Avatarum and play a Mastermind competition with Gal, who owns the place and created the game!
While I'm speaking of places: I L O V E all this sightseeing stuff in SL. Like the Rezzable Sims (Greenies Home, The Black Swan or the Collectors Gallery), science related places (The International Spaceflight Museum or The Splo) and many more. Have a look at sightseeings subpage in my quicklinks for some hints. Additionally, there are great concerts going on. And everyone should watch a show of the virtual band called U2 in SL at least once!
Jen was so generous to furnish a little place for me on her land where I stored some freebies. Have a look at Stadtrand and make sure to explore the area around!
That's it for now. You read it all? Wowy...
Apprentice Mentor Shadowing
In case you are an Apprentice Mentor searching for an Apprentice Buddy to shadow you, please have a look at the Buddy Center in SLVEC, in the Category:Apprentice Buddies and at Apprentice Buddy Availability.
OK, so my voucher criteria are very simple:
These are my criteria since it's what we expect from you once you became a mentor. It's nothing less and nothing more =)
The Clueless Newbie
It is basically a roleplaying game. I will TP you to the Volunteers OI next to SLVEC, being dressed like the girl next door and pretending to be the helpless and confused newbie (who I'm still at times, so it's not that much of pretending *coughs*). Now it's your task to guide me through my difficulties. These are all basic newbie questions. No knowledge about advanced (or even basic) building or scripting required, no difficult land problems or all that stuff. We'll try to simulate an every day experience you'll have by mentoring at an Orientation Island. Don't be afraid. I'm not trying to show you up. My goal is it to make you realize what you know and what you don't know and to provide tipps on how to improve your mentoring. So we'll analyze the roleplaying afterwards, trying to figure out where we can tweak to enhance the new residents experience with you as a Mentor.
A to Z Shadowing
I'm really excited about this one =)
Uh oh... please calm down ^^
