Welcome to the March Newsletter for the Seniors Mentoring Project!
We have lots of great and exciting things to report from the Seniors Mentoring Project! First, is that WhenPigsFry (that's me ) has volunteered to devote way too much time to the project. I will be trying to organize and keep things running around here. Some of you may have seen my first journal entry talking about needing to change a bunch of stuff. I think I came off wrong in it, so I wanted to talk about that really quick.
My intent wasn't to completely overhaul seniormentors but rather discuss what is and isn't working and find ways to improve it! Thanks to the help of LostKitten, WDWParksGal, Astrikos, and many other Senior Members, I have been able to take a look at some areas that need to stay the same and some that needed changed. Some of it has taken place and some is yet to come!
Also, don't think LostKitten is gone, she just wanted to step back and help the group in a less time-consuming fashion. Running a group requires a lot of time and I'll try to devote as much as I can to help keep the great things those before me have started.
Improvements at seniormentors!
Here are a list of things that have been improved upon over the last month here at seniormentors:
- Updated and added to our Senior Homes categories. For more information see the Senior Homes journal. Also, we need more volunteers to help with various events, contests, and journals. If you'd like to work with us as a team member, just send us a note. If you don't have any ideas right now but still wish to volunteer, please do so, we have plenty of ideas that you could build off of!
- Changed the way mentors are listed. We will now list our Senior Mentors here. We have started from scratch with our list to ensure it is the most up-to-date and accurate information. Senior Mentors will be added to the `OverTheHill home. We still need many more mentors, if you would like to become a mentor, please send a note to the Senior Mentoring Project with your genre(s) and 3 examples of your own art from those genres.
- Application from a deviantART member to a Senior Mentor for acceptance will now be done via note directly to the Senior Mentors. We are working on this process and more information will become available throughout March.
- Fixed the title and comment links on the journal CSS to display properly. If something isn't displaying right in your browser, please let us know!
- We now have a point donation pool in place. FellaSr will be helping us collect points for use on events, contests, giveaways, etc... If you can spare a few points, please head on over and donate to the cause! Your help will bring great things to our group!
Things to watch for in March!
Here is a list of the planned events in March! If you have an idea and would like to help, let us know! If you don't have an idea, but would like to help, let us know! We have tons of things that we could do, but need help to accomplish them all.
- March is Digital Art Month at :devseniormentors. Arichy and phoenixleo have been busy getting things ready for a month full of Digital Art greatness! If you would like to help, please note Arichy to find out what she needs assistance with.
- You may have noticed a our poll, "Are artists born or created?" Several people have already participated and left some great feedback. If you haven't had a chance yet, please vote and add your own two-cents to the conversation. An article on the topic will follow in March sometime!
- We'll continue to make various improvements to the group and make it a better place for everyone!
(To have your projects added, please send us a note!)
