In addition to:
There are plenty of zero cost ways to contribute to Wikiotics. Some ideas…
If you have a camera…
- Take pictures of common objects/situations that could be used in a language lesson, and upload them to the Wikiotics Flickr group. You’ll make lessons easier to create and more attractive.
If you know English…
- If you have 5 more minutes, take a look at the existing English lessons page and see if you can improve some existing lessons.
- If you have 5 more minutes, create an account on wikiotics.org so you can make contributions under your name.
- If you have 20 minutes, create or improve an existing lesson using photos from Flickr.
- If you have 1 hour per week, join the Wikiotics discussion group.
- If you have free time right now, join our chat room and introduce yourself.
- If you know of other similar or complementary projects, please add them to our Links page.
If you are multilingual…
- If you have 10 minutes, translate an existing lesson into another language.
- If you have 1 hour, please translate the user interface of our wiki engine, Ductus, into your language using Transifex. If a translation already exists, please make sure it is up-to-date and accurate.
- If you have 15 minutes, see if you can replace photos in an existing lesson with ones that are more culturally appropriate.
If you are a programmer…
- If you have 1 hour and are running a UNIX-like system, try to set up a local Ductus development instance and let us know how it goes.
- If you have more time, try to help improve an upstream project. We have filed or are following bugs or feature requests against Django, creoleparser, flickrapi, and other projects, and it would be nice for everyone if those projects can be improved.
- Look at the current tickets for Ductus and see if there is anything you can help with.
- Get involved with design discussions on the mailing list. Currently we use the Wikiotics discussion list, but we will create a list specifically for Ductus if/when there is enough demand.
