What I was originally getting at was meeting with the person, having lunch, answering all the questions I can, take them out to a game or two and show them the ropes. I'd also be available on ASC/MSN for them to ask questions until they are comfortable and able to float, so to speak.

One on one vulgarisation of the FAQs would also allow them to actual understand stuff, instead of reading it sideways and making their own half-assed interpretation of the subject.
Directions to verifiers, mentoring on gear, general primers that sort of stuff.
I also have been putting off a study of average price points of guns (the real ones, not G&G shenanigans).
Ár skal rísa, sá er annars vill
fé eða fjör hafa. Sjaldan liggjandi úlfur
lær um getur né sofandi maður sigur.
