John mentors me, and it's been extremely valuable to have him gently mentioning problems.

Having a list of projects for new people where they can get some mentoring as they learn to map would be exellent. Being isolated isn't easy. Being on a team and working with other mappers encourages us to do more mapping, and it's more interesting and dare I say, fun.

I normally keep an eye on about three or four projects and validate any tiles that get marked done on those projects usually within a day or so and often within an hour or two.

Working like this I find I can gently mention problems to newcomers and strangely enough the projects get finished off.

Could some one think of a way to have a list of projects that are validated in this way that newcomers can find easily so they can get a bit of support and don't feel too isolated.  It would need commitment from someone to validate a project rather than the project manager adding it to the list.

Yes I understand that Maperthons are wonderful and looking over someone's shoulder is useful but there are people who find getting to Maperthons not so convenient and it would be nice to cater to them.

Thanks John
