United States Strong Island says:

this is a great idea. it's not easy being a newcomer sometimes. I bet a lot of people are pushed away. I almost was but I love it too much to stop.

Belgium Massman says:

I hear you, Strong Island. From a Rookie/newcomer perspective, is there anything we can do additionally to help facilitate the welcoming?

United States Strong Island says:

well I think the rookie and novice leagues are a great idea. It's a great way to integrate people into the community. I think recruiting a rookie is a nice idea because it will make the rookies feel more comfortable to ask questions and try and learn.

It's funny because some people say they want overclocking to grow but then are hesitant to embrace a newcomer which will only push people away.

I also shouldn't have jumped right into the pro oc cup.

Having these additional extra steps to get integrated into the community is an awesome idea to gain more overclockers.

In Benchmarkhardware, just try to explain at rookies. As article say, not everybody born learned;
So with our help, we hope plant the seed and try to to increase his overclocking interest in Spain.

A good source of information for the rookies about how to submit in benchmarks are these videos:

This pretty well hit the nail on the head. There are some benchers who are more than willing to help out but not everyone is. It is very easy to become discouraged when trying to learn and nobody is willing to help.

The Rookie Rumble is definitely a great step in the right direction along with the Rookie / Novice leagues. It puts most benchers on a level playing field and allows them to build up the confidence to keep pushing for more.
