I have not found a question about this so I would like to propose a mentoring System to help newcomers (like myself). There are documentations, there are Q&A and yes, all those should be read. But they don't have all the answers that new users might need and they can be unclear specially assuming that this is a multicultural environment. So a mentoring System would be appreciated in which a better experienced user can take newcomers as a mentor and establish a communication channel to it. Would be better if the mentor would be from the same country/region as the mentored. That may also increase the quality of questions and answers all across the community specially if the mentor get automatically notified when the mentored has questions and answers with a high number of down votes.
There are a few problems with this
- Anyone can make an account in 10 seconds, we don't have enough experienced users to mentor everyone and becoming a "mentor" requires some dedication not too many will volunteer to do so
- Who is "experienced" anyways?
- Users interested in "mentoring" will look for help and find it anyways, I presume (do you have any question about the site whose answer you couldn't find in the help center or meta?)
Also I believe there are enough alternatives
- You can always drop in chat if you have specific questions another user can help you with.
- If you have issues with site policy, you can ask a meta question or contact mods in the Math Mods' Office
- Some users (including me) will add comprehensive "introductory comments" to new users' question if something is wrong with them. Thus they will get pointed to the correct sources if they make mistakes and won't be bothered if they don't.
It seems that you have experienced difficulties with your first question asked. This is absolutely not a huge issue. You can always improve and I've taken the time to add some comments about what is wrong with the post's form that got it closed. Don't let this (relatively small) negative feedback keep you from becoming an active member on Math.SE :)
