This is the studio used for discussing potential curators for The Forum Helpers studio, along with promoting active members.
The main studio is here: https://scratch.mit.edu/studios/3688309/
If you would like to join The Forum Helpers studio, just help around in the forums! If we see that you’re being a helpful forum user, we’ll discuss inviting you.
If you have found someone who you think could make a good forum helper, here are the steps you should take in this studio.
1) First, before starting a chain of comments where you grade this user, you should make sure that all other users have either been fully graded, or graded by you. That way we don't have chains of ungraded comments piling up.
2) Consider carefully whether they would make a good fit. Have you seen them before? Do you have a good idea of what their posts are like? Are their posts constructive? (You don’t need to answer these questions, just think about them.)
3) Determine whether or not you think they will be a good fit for The Forum Helpers. You should explicitly write "Support" or "No support" in a comment in this studio.
4) Give a reason explaining your decision. This only needs to be one or two sentences long, but you are welcome to write more.
5) If you are the FIRST person to grade a certain user, you should make a new comment. Otherwise, you should REPLY to the last person who graded that user. That way things can stay organized.
6) Three managers should grade a certain user. If all three write "Support", then write a comment saying that you will invite them to the studio. Then, invite that user to The Forum Helpers, and leave them a comment on their profile asking them to join.
7) If one or more managers write "No support", the user should not be invited to The Forum Helpers. If, after 2 weeks, you still think they would be a good fit, re-grade the user by making a new comment (and perhaps explaining how you believe they have improved).
Three managers MUST grade the user. Even if someone has already written "No support", it would be a good idea to have three managers grade the user so we can see many different ideas.
