I'm all for the mentor/apprentice program being started up, it was really successful and helpful, especially in its initial stages. However, I'm not entirely sure that there will be enough new recruits to validate a second Dojo league. Let's wait a couple weeks into the expansion and then introduce something if there's enough demand.
As far as the second dojo league goes, I had actually thought about not having enough people to sustain a full one. BMG is obviously a lot larger than TPW, so maybe it would be better to halve it and make it the size of a normal gym league? If more dedicated members join, we could easily add 8 (or nine fuck yeah dark dojo) more to the roster to give more options. But if we could only handle eight, I'd suggest just doing the most popular gym types in URPG (though there are a ton of types with 2 gyms, so it'd be hard to pick which ones). But meh, I'm sure there will be a staff discussion on the matter if it comes down to it, but that's just my two cents.
Hi I'm putting in my two cents SO LISTEN UP YOUNG'UNS.
Dojo League is a bad idea. It created a rift between BMG and PE2K members that lasted quite awhile. So don't do it.
Yeah, IMO the only rift was because of the predetermined hate a lot of pe2kers had before even coming. Also, any BMGer who went through the lame time where both sides hated each other isn't going to hate the TPWers for no reason. I think there are more pros than cons with a dojo league.

The key to making any expansion successful is member retention. If we get all these members and no one is there to help them, they're never gonna get more than one mon. It's gonna take all of us making sure that our newer members get situated into the URPG.....family *chokes slightly*. This includes welcoming them, encouraging them to get AIM, doing basics, etc. It sounds like a lot but it would be worth seeing more members stick around.
Though honestly, from personal experience, the Mentor/Apprentice thread doesn't work. At the BMG branches' inception, I personally took several nubs under my wing. There was nothing official about it. All the thread does is make it MORE difficult for new people to get help. It assigns them one person, to whom they assume they must ask EVERY QUESTION THEY HAVE. If the mentor goes inactive, the apprentice could feel isolated and it might drive them to quit early on.
So yeah, what Webbie is saying there about a community effort is absolutely correct. Not that I'm against you being all "THIS IS MY NUB", but we don't need a program to make this exclusive.
