    Again, I'm sorry, but I'm out of tutors for European timezones. Please PM Lexay, Mekkah, or CrazyStarwolf to see if they can take you on.

    Is that a nickname or what? Also, as I told Aeo, my apprentice hasn't come to nb in about 2 weeks. I only talked to him once.

    Hey, I'm a little confused...has this round already finished, or not? Should I be waiting for a new topic to be made for the next round? Ah well, I guess it can't hurt to post my info now anyway...

    I'm going to be sending evaluations out to all apprentices in a few days. If your tutor wasn't helpful to you...or didn't try to meet with you...let me know. They may lose tutor status if they aren't participating as avidly as they should.

    Ok, thanks for another great round guys. If you were not assigned a tutor for this round, go ahead and post your profile in the next thread...I will be sure to give you guys priority when I'm making matches. I would assign you guys right away...but I want to make sure that you are still interested before I assign someone to you. See you guys in Round Five!
