>From what I understand from what Joerg and Christoph (and others) have
already mentioned :

With the current system, you know when to step up. It's when you always ask
an other mentor to mentor new Ambassadors (thus, you will probably be
nominated by this mentor or an other). It's because :

1) you have convinced many to contribute as Ambassadors (considering you
have been asking the other mentor)
2) you can co-operate with mentors or FAmSCo members (I think communication,
ability to co-operate etc are great values if you hold such a title)

This way you have proved yourself as a mentor so they make it official with
just giving you the title and privilledges.

If either 1) or 2) are false, you are not needed or uncapable to be a
mentor. Plus, FAmSCo is elected by us so I guess they are trustworthy people
on overall.

It's very cool that you are trying to propose something new. But maybe it's
too complicated than it is really needed?

Thanks for your attention :)
