What is Trains-adoption? Trains-adoption was created on 2007-11-23 as a program designed to help new and inexperienced users. Older editors can "adopt" newer users, helping to mentor them along the way as they learn about Train Spotting World. We hope that this program will be able to steer new users away from vandalism and test edits, and instead teach them the ins and outs of Train Spotting World. Currently we don't have any users involved in the program, but just like everything else on Train Spotting World it continues to expand.

Users who are not new or inexperienced, but who would like some help, might like to consider whether Editor review (for an assessment of work to date) or Editor assistance (for one-off problems) might be more appropriate than adoption.

Goals

First and foremost, we want to be able to help new editors learn how to best contribute to Train Spotting World. Whether it's writing articles, editing templates, or just fixing userboxes on their userpages, we want to have a helper ready in case they need help.

Adoptions will last until either the adopter or the adoptee decides to terminate the relationship. When an adopter sees that a user knows the ropes and is faring well he or she may ask the user if they feel as if they know how properly to edit and find information if they have a problem. Likewise, if an adoptee feels confident enough to go out on their own, he or she can be bold and remove the adoption templates and officially be unadopted. Be sure to remember to thank your adopter!
