What help could a beginner give to Support the Wiki?

If you're not ready to contribute yet, there are many tasks that need to be done on an on-going basis to keep the Wiki up-to-date, clean, and accurate.  You might want to venture into some of the Support tasks, or work on one of the committees.  
  • For instance, Maintaining the Help Content insures that the Help content is a valuable asset to anyone who uses the Wiki.  
  • Maintenance and Patrolling is necessary to keep links working correctly, ascertain whether articles are in the Scope of the Wiki, make sure that questions get answered on the Discussion pages, etc.
  • Perhaps, you would prefer to work with people.  The Wiki Contributor Support Committee might be just the thing for you.
  • The Wiki Welcoming Committee might be your niche.  Volunteers are always needed to help newcomers feel welcome and give them some helpful beginning information.

     Help is available for any of these Support opportunities, as listed on the pages.
  • Wiki Support meetings are a great way to communicate with others and get a better understanding of what's needed, and how to help.
  • Mentoring is available for one-on-one help.

Group Communication and Actions

We can work together and communication is a main part of that work.

  • We have Forums that help us work with each other. The link below is to the three forums that are specifically for the Wiki. By reading the posts and posting our own ideas and questions we can help ourselves and others understand the goals and work on the Wiki.

We also can communicate with each other in several other ways both on the discussion pages for each article and page and on the User discussion pages.

  • We can also talk to each of the User in the Wiki that are registered.
