This is an FAQ for the CodeProject Mentor Program.

Table of Contents

  1. Who can be a mentor?

    • Gold member +
    • Must have written 5+ articles
    • Code Project user who has demonstrated helpful posting in the forums

  2. What does a mentor do?

    Being a mentor is completely voluntary at all times. The general role of a Mentor is to provide guidance on the general writing and formatting of articles. Mentors will provide suggestions:

    • Level of detail required
    • Additional material that will compliment the article
    • If necessary, technical feedback

  3. How do authors ask for help?

    Authors with an article in Pending status that wish help from a Mentor can either send an email to us at submit[at], or (what is more likely to happen) an author will be sent an email by Code Project staff explaining what the Mentor program is and asking if they want to take part. If they agree, this email will be followed by a more in-depth explanation of how it works and what to expect.

  4. How do you match authors and mentors?

    If the author agrees, a message will be posted on the Mentor Forum for a Mentor to pick up. Ideally, a Mentor knowledgeable of the subject of the article will match with that author.

  5. How do we communicate? Through the site or directly?

    After volunteering, a Mentor leaves a comment on author's article to offer assistance.

  6. Are mentors acknowledged in the published article?

    Nope. Your reward is the warm fuzzy feeling of helping improve authors and articles, and making Code Project a better place.

  7. Will there be one or more mentors for each article?

    Yes, generally. If a mentor requests help from their peers, then perhaps there might be another post

  8. How do I become a mentor?
