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:
Authors with an article in Pending status that wish help from a Mentor can either send an email to us at submit[at]rootadmin.com, or (what is more likely to happen) an author will be sent an email by RootAdmin 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.
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.
After volunteering, a Mentor leaves a comment on author's article to offer assistance.
Nope. Your reward is the warm fuzzy feeling of helping improve authors and articles, and making RootAdmin a better place.
Yes, generally. If a mentor requests help from their peers, then perhaps there might be another post
