Group Mentors

From Usenet Big-8 Management Board

Group Mentors are volunteers who are willing to coach proponents through the newsgroup creation process.



  • help proponents understand the newsgroup creation process, clarify their proposals, and meet the minimal standards for a formal proposal.
  • sort incoming proposals, reject those that are inappropriate for the Big-8, correspond with proponents, ensure that proposals become properly formatted.
  • maintain the newsgroup creation queue on the website.
  • maintain and publish the guidelines for group creation and a FAQ or FAQs designed to help people understand the process.
