That would help pair up people of like playing styles, too, perhaps.
It's probably been mentioned somewhere else, but domain-expert mentoring would be helpful. Someone who is an expert at Groves may not be very familiar with Lairs. Someone who is an expert at water hunting may not know good Australian land hunting strategies, what with all the Billanger "poop."
Likewise, someone with great advice for players up to level 10 may not be as helpful for casual players when it comes to the 20s slog.
Either allowing a mentee to pick who they want to ask for info from or allowing mentors to hand off mentees between each other to experts in different fields would be useful.
I often answer lightly and then ask my mentees to ask in their city and/or kingdom, too, for alternate opinions. (That's usually my city and kingdom, and I know the people are helpful.)
Finally, a few of my mentees have gone off to "the other side." Helping them becomes somewhat of a conflict of interest. Although, usually if they've done that they were an alt/restart to begin with, learn well enough on their own, or have enough help from their kd.
