What Is An Ambassador?
To be an ambassador at Wealthy Affiliate requires a person to really get involved in the community. You get ranked by how active you are in the community. To be active in the community means that you are posting in your profile, answering other members questions and maybe even creating some training modules for other members.
This sounds all well and good but I have noticed that some people really work at being an ambassador so they will "help" other members out when they do not know the answer themselves.
Many times they also will post comments that really have nothing to do with the conversation just so they can be active and get a higher ranking.
My favourite comment posted though is "Sorry I cannot help you out" Does this actually help out your ambassador ranking? If it does I would say a lot of people are abusing the system.
The reason I bring this up is because sometimes I do not know whether the answer I have been given is the correct one. So how do I know for sure that I am being steered in the right direction?
One final thought this does not apply to the majority of the community it is a very small minority of the community and in all fairness they do believe they are helping out but unless you know one hundred percent then I think it is best you do not answer.
