I'll gladly do what I did in the past with this thread and program as well as mentor a new player (just one though, at one point I had 3'ish at all times and that was "difficult"). A "matchmaker" I will try to be, that seems the best to keep things organized, relevant and uncluttered.
As far as keeping it "informal" and "not adopting it into team CC," perhaps I don't understand the inference? Do you mean informal as in how it used to exist, i.e. "just a sticky in a forum" and not an official "part of the site"? If so, yes SoC should be your (CC's) main focus and this should be "by the players, for the players." I may have suggestions but I first require clarification.
I'm happy to see so much interest though, we had much luck with players in the past and could do so again.

World 2.1 and team games - dont have any real weakenesses which i couldnt mentor on.
how would this work though obvious for team games - but for rest, is it just general advice or giving a range of suggestions for them to choose from, since if u gave specific advice on a situation, it could be unfair if someone thinks they're playing say a new recruit but they're effectively not (depending on how much advice is given/acted upon)

A straight reward for participation might be too much and too complicated, but perhaps a competition based on mentor ratings or something of that sort? Also, would not hurt to offer a medal to people who do a good deal of mentoring.
