Posting on the mainsite may get more attention for potential mentees^^
Also I plan to help get the houses up and running again soon.

Hey, while we're on the topic, about the houses, when do points reset? I.e., when does a house win the house cup or whatever? Lmao. And then, what do they win, other than bragging rights and VICTORY!!!!!1!!1!1!1!1!11!! if anything

If it's gonna be a house cup thing I'd suggest seasonally. That would also coincide with my seasonal KP Chronicle, so I could like... Announce the season's winner. Ya

I'm gonna make a thread for the KP chronicle. And yes, I haven't given up on it yet.
Expect the summer edition to come out in August

I do plan on posting to the mainsite, I just wanted to confirm that everything looked good and fix things like the Sponsor/Mentee detail first ^u^

Lol idk. I haven't looked at the houses in like,, a month.

oh p.s. do you still need the Creating Antagonists thing I was supposed to make for your newspaper? 'cause I saw your post about sending all of the submissions to you for editing since you hadn't heard from any of the editors, and I never *actually* got around to sending mine in because I'm a Forgetful Lazy Shit.

Should we add a reciprocation thing between Mentors and Mentees?

The Mentor is supposed to encourage/support the Mentee by commenting on their stories and talking to them and such, maybe we could add a little note about giving comments back once in a while,

not as a rule, it would be more of a suggestion to the Mentees, like 'hey your Mentor works to help you, try to give them a little help back now and then'. idk I'm trying to make it worthwhile to both sides and aside from there hopefully being enough of an impact to nudge KP out of the Dark Ages, there doesn't seem to be a lot of incentive for the older kids to become mentors.

Alem, Luna, Ena, Justin, you are all accepted.

Also the mainsite post is up here: https://www.kidpub.com/story/kidpub-...all-2935161287 The form is changed but you don't have to re-submit unless you want to fill out the entire thing all over again.

If you don't re-submit please just let me know what genre you prefer to read/write.

Yes! That would be nice about the newspaper article

I know, but I'm trying to get the houses up and running again so what do you think should be the answer to those questions? I looked through all the development pages but such a system did not exist yet.

Yes! That's a good idea.

The mentee should read the mentor's works in order to learn from them, in my opinion

Alright! I'll go hunt it down and send it to you.

I'm not really involved enough to give a solid answer, but I would say a seasonal house cup thing like you suggested would be the way to go, and then maybe have monthly updates on how each house was doing in comparison to the other houses, to keep the excitement up.
