Contribute

We're looking for people to contribute to the ongoing website project! We are looking for content editors, HTML junkies, programmers, etc who can help out on different sections of the site.

You don't have to quit your day job to help us out either - most of the individual tasks we need done can be completed in an evening or two's worth of time. Its a great way to give back to the community for something you got for free as well!

Formatting
If you are contributing a work which will eventuallhy become a static web page (like a tutorial), here are your formatting guidelines. Create your work in plain text (.txt), spacing your paragraphs one line apart from each other. Include references to images in [brackets] with the name of the image. Zip up the images you have generated for the page and include them in the email with your submission.

If you are working on a Recurring Task, email Tim Courtney with more advanced formatting instructions, and access to the server if required.
