FWIW - in the individual program forums, at least those I look at, these newbies are mostly being ignored by the regulars.

I think we need a place to send them and those who want to help can go to that forum. Part of that help could and should include, the information/means to find the information themselves.
So the ambassador program isn't to help newbies, but rather only those newbies who meet an ambassador's personal standards?
