How can I help Linux Mint project?

Postby cybeet on Tue Jan 03, 2012 12:27 pm

I've been using Linux Mint for a long time, and I would like to help Linux Mint project somehow. :) But I just don't know how. I'm can't draw/paint very well, so I can't make (good) artwork. I'm not a good programmer, so I can't code anything. I think I could help translating Linux Mint to Finnish, but translation is already complete? (I understand English very well) How can I help you? I really would like to help. :)

Report bugs, check out Cinnamon as it still needs some improvements

Just being active in the forums, the IRC chat rooms and the Community Site is more than many users do. You do not need to be a coder or an artist to contribute. If you have an idea that you think would be of benefit to Mint, let us know. Make a post to the Ideas section of the Community Site. If the idea has merit, a developer may decide to try writing the required code and your idea could be in the next version of Mint.

Also, translation is an ongoing project. New apps are being added to Ubuntu and Mint constantly and many need translation into other languages. Do not think that just because the current version of Mint is fully translated into Finnish that there will not be a continuing need for translators.

Anything you can do will help the Mint community continue to grow and prosper. Even if it is only checking the Finnish section of the forums for spam and trolls and reporting anything you find to the moderation team, it is helping Mint.

Feel free to correct me if I'm trying to write in Spanish, French or German.
