There are 3 main stages to an Appropedia volunteer role, of increasing complexity and responsibility.
Stage 1[edit | edit source]
A simple project of around 4 hours work. To be completed within 2 weeks.
- For most volunteers, this will mean creating or improving a page on Appropedia. (Or you may prefer to create more than one stub article, or improve more than one existing article.)
- For [[tech volunteers, it can be researching a particular function or extension for Appropedia - choose one of the mid to high priorities in our workstream, and report on how to implement it.
- For a law/IP volunteer, this may mean a report on particular organization or body of work, identifying suitable material which can be legally used in Appropedia.
Stage 2[edit | edit source]
Stage 2 involves around 4 hrs/wk for 4 weeks (or 8 hrs/wk for 2 weeks, on the accelerated program).
Week 1 of Stage 2: follow the same guidelines as Stage 1 (e.g. create another article, or research another tech request).
Week 2-4 of Stage 2, as follows:
For content volunteers,
- Creating or improving a set of pages on Appropedia. It's usually a good idea to stick to one topic area - but if you want to be exposed to a range of topics, discuss this with us.
