Volunteers wanted!

Post by maven » Thu May 19, 2016 2:11 pm

Can anyone help us to review all the entries in the wiki please? We need to check that the links all work, and that the information is up to date. You don't need to fix the broken parts (although we'd be grateful if you do) as even just flagging them up will encourage others to fix them.

Please volunteer here and I can divide the task up between volunteers - maybe 10 wiki entries each?

I'm picking up some here and there, i've marked them either 'done' above, or highlighted where it is outside my expertise/too big for me to tackle in the 5-10 min blocks i'm finding here and there in my day :) I'll continue on informally.

We have nearly 7000 users on this website. Can it really be the case that only 3 people (all of whom have contributed to the site before, and are already on the team) are willing to give half an hour of their time?
