I've been following this thread since you started it because I haven't been able to word exactly what I want to say. So here goes... while I think it is a good idea and very kind of you to want to help new members, there would have to be some sort of protocol for who would be these 'coaches'. They would need to be trained and trusted. It would be too hard to keep up with the coaches to be sure they weren't giving out misguided information and steering people in the wrong direction. You could say it could be a moderators job to watch the coaches, but I think the mods already fill the job you are describing if you catch my drift.
I understand where you are coming from, and thank you for posting I know it could be hard to keep up, but wasn't the GE situation sort of like this? If necessary, maybe the admins/mods could make a quiz that the MC's could send out when their MT (member trainee) is ready. Sometimes, like some of the members have said, when they have first started they were "afraid" to contact anyone for help. Sometimes direct help although you don't ask for it can be helpful
Thank you for your opinion!

I think that that is a very cool idea. A lot of new members I've seen have posted a little bit and then made their account inactive by not posting, so them not knowing how to do much may be a part of that. You could also have a very small test they could take when they think they've learned everything such as:
What forum do you post on when you need help?
What forum is for talking and chatting?
What are these for ?
What do you use this for ?
