NotAgain has actually been a consistently useful member of my team and I just got my 7th badge :P, looks like he didn't turn out nearly so horrible as you thought he would.
I discuss all the details on my emerald scramble's home post, just check that out.
And I'm ALREADY a mentor, it's not to achieve anything extra on the site (everyone agreed that no badges were to come of this), it's just so I can get some practice teaching people, and also because I like helping people out with stuff. The Mentor lable is really easy to get if you have a badge anyway, you just have to make an application. However you do need a badge to become one.
Good, though I'll admit my scramble presence has been somewhat sporadic myself :P. Big new thing on here for me is the Mentoring program, I've been taking to that like a duck to water. I'm actually going to tutor some high school kids in real life soon so it's good practice for me.
BTW I'm going to start up video updates for my Emerald Scramble again. Well kind of, they're actually going to be livestreams(kinda) using G+ Hangouts which I'll upload after the fact. You should join the next one, I know you'll have fun actually talking with me as I play!
Hey I'm still around, I'm just really experiencing a temporary aversion to scrambling at the moment. It's just a lot of stress (due to the workload of maintaining my award nomination post and making those goddamn video updates) that I just don't feel up to managing right now. I think that I might just abandon the video update format, just so I actually start putting updates out again. That 3 hours of editing makes it really tough for me to convince myself to go through with making each video, which leads to indefinite procrastination and... yeah.
