SL Volunteer Mentor Scribes
Mentor Scribes are well-versed, seasoned volunteers within the group who are willing to be contacted directly by other volunteers for assistance in writing, wiki development, and wiki collaboration. This is entirely an opt-in role and may bear extra responsibility, but for many of you who are already wiki gurus, this role will grant you acknowledgment for your contributions.
Purpose of Mentor Scribes
- To provide advice to newcomers on how to create their SL Wiki profile and how to use wiki templates.
- To assist in reorganization of the wiki for added functionality or ease of use.
- To provide feedback on or to develop ways for creative collaboration using the wiki.
- To assist in promoting and preserving the culture of the volunteer program using text.

We will consider suggestions on how to make this process easier if you have some! This is a work in progress.)
Requirements for Becoming a Mentor Scribe
Mentor Scribes are asked to create a user page within the Second Life Volunteer Wiki with some form of text on it that shows the ability to edit and maintain a wiki page. "Advanced knowledge" of the wiki is not required, but the ability to assist others with setting up their own user page and diving into the wiki is a must. At the moment, there is no requirement for number of contributions made to the wiki, though Mentor Scribes are expected to have some level of involvement in its development or progress.
