Hey guys, As the *Adopt a Newbie* Foundation becomes more busy, it will get harder to keep track of everyone involved. We already have the Newbie List and a Society Concept Thread explaining the ideas Lykke had at the beginning about how it would work; both are great! However, I think it would be a nice idea to start a Society List to match the Newbie List to make it easier to keep tabs on just who is involved here. I encourage soc leaders to take a look at their own soc's entry and to inform me of any changes or updates I should add due to either mistake or lack of knowledge. Of course, if your soc doesn't appear here and you are invovled, please let me know so I can keep it up to date. Firstly, the terms for Societies: Agreement (Rules of Conduct) for Societies: Societies wishing to collaborate with ANF should apply in this thread with the details for the table below. These rules should be viewed, discussed and accepted by the authoritative figures within the Society before the Society applies here. It is not necessary only for Society Leaders to be Correspondents, it can be any internally agreed member of the Society, and it is free to change Correspondents any time (just let me know). It is important that I have Correspondents on my Friend List, and they have me on theirs, for communication purposes. We should both try to keep contact with each other (just give me a poke if necessary). The aim of ANF is to help, so Societies should be willing to help the newbies they adopt with any questions or problems (within reason). To Adopt a Newbie, simply PM me (Dalas) with a request including the name of the newbie. There is no specific layout or wording recommendation for these PMs, you can simply ask. I will PM the Correspondent once their Newbie has signed the Contract and give the go-ahead for the Adoption to begin. An adoption will typically last 4 weeks. The Society is responsible for controlling this and free either to keep the Newbie or let them go after this period. Contracts will be sent both to the Newbie and the Correspondent here in EP Forum. Since the Society has already accepted these Terms, it is NOT necessary for Correspondents to reply to the Contracts. They are sent purely for the Society's records. Upon completion of 1 (one) week of adoption, each Newbie is entitled to a free Newbie Kit. This is the responsibility of the Correspondent to organise. This can be done by PMing me (Dalas) here in Entropia Planets Forum or in-world. The Society is allowed to kick a Newbie if they do not follow the rules in the Society or because of unacceptable behavior - and the Society Correspondent will have to inform the *Adopt a Newbie* Foundation about this - The Newbie's name will then be deleted from the Newbie List. You may adopt as many Newbies as you like at any one time. The number you give in the Society List is just a guideline. I will try to keep Correspondents informed via a PMed Newsletter here in EP Forum, but cannot guarantee its regularity. I may ask an applicant to meet up in-world if I am not familiar with their Society yet, in order to get to know a bit more about them and their EU-ethos. This is to ensure that the high quality of care already present in ANF remains and that Newbies may feel confident with any Society which may want to adopt them. It is important for Societies to make informed decisions, so it is recommended that Societies read not only the Newbie List, but also the application filled in by the newbie they wish to adopt and even check on other posts the newbie has made in order to get the best impression possible of this newbie. We welcome you! ---------------------------------- Sign up for the ANF Society list! Copy and paste the points below and post the form in this thread with your information. I (Dalas) will reply in this thread with more details on how we can progress. When a Society is successfully entered into the Society List, they are free to begin browsing for Newbies and PMing me with Adoption requests. ---------------------------------- The Form - Copy ONLY this and post your personal answers as a reply in this thread.
