 Many players wish to help new players when available, but are not able to
 commit to the rigorous duties of a full-fledged Helper.  Advisors are
 expected to 'step up' and help when Helpers are not available, but do not
 have to help as rigorously or with other duties like CRs (though this
 help is still greatly appreciated).

 Advisors have access to the Newbietalk and Helpertalk channels, and the
 ability to 'findcorpse', but do not have any other Helper abilities
 (including newwhere, gag, and so forth). The advisor flag is visible on the 
 Newbietalk and Helpertalk channels and in finger.  Roster 1 and 10 also 
 allow 'advisor'.  Notes can be sent to 'Advisor'. 

 Because Advisors are not always available to help, 'who advisor' only works
 if the player using the command is a Helper or an Advisor.  This prevents 
 new players from seeking help from advisors that may not be available.

 How to apply

 The Advisor flag must be set/unset by an Immortal.  

 1. Make sure that you understand and agree to Advisor policies listed in 
    'help advisor policy';

 2. Then find a sponsor for yourself. In order to do that, take a look at 
    'help advisor sponsors' and pick a name to contact. You can
    keep going through the list until you find a sponsor who has the time     
    to interview you. 

 3. When the sponsor agrees to interview you and decides to back you up, you 
    are asked to post a single note addressed to 'Helper', 'Advisor'   
    and '<YourSponsor>' on the personal board to request this flag. Your 
    application doesn't need to be a huge essay, but a little about your 
    experience and why you're interested would be highly appreciated. 

 NOTE: In order to become an Advisor, a player must have reached his/her third
 mort on Aardwolf and have been playing at least 350 hours on the game.  
 This helps establish a good overall knowledge of the game.
