I think in this case good elmering can be as simple as making sure your
email address is updated on the various callsign lookup databases and
perhaps having an email address occasionally beacon with your APRS position.
Being involved with your local radio club can also be helpful.  This way
when a newbee sets up there APRS station and doesn't get digied they can
easily contact other APRS users that can then assist the new operator with
settings etc.

I agree that keeping the old digi aliases operational on a digi was a weak
argument to begin with but certainly now there's no reason to supporting the
old aliases.

Another idea to try is when seasoned APRSers see a new call pop up on there
map they could get in contact with that person just to say "high" and strike
up a conversation about APRS in general.  That way if the newbee isn't sure
of something they're likely to look for advice and will probably ask then.

Just some ideas...
