The Ubuntu Community website has an awesome new service: Find-A-Task
It's a referral service - it helps volunteers discover teams and tasks that match their interests.
- Link to it!
- Refer new enthusiasts toward it!
- Advertise your teams and projects on it!
Give it a try and see how it can work for your team or project.
So easy and so fast.
- What volunteer role do you want to advertise?
- What's a very short, exciting description of the role?
- Which Find-A-Task paths do you think this role is appropriate for?
- Create a great landing page on the wiki. (example)
- Role: Frobishers,
- Description: "Help Frobnicators add fabulous Frob!"
- Path: One, in the Coding and Development submenu
- Landing URL http://wiki.ubuntu.com/FrobTeam/Frobishers
This is a volunteer's first impression of your team. Make it shine.
When volunteers show up at your wiki page, they are already interested. They want to know how to set up, who to contact, and how to get started on their first easy work item. They want instructions and details.
If you don't provide what they want, they may move on to their next choice. Find-A-Task makes it easy for them to move on.
Tremendous thanks to:
- Mozilla and 85 contributors who created the excellent AskNot that's under the hood of Find-A-Task.
- Thanks to Benjamin Kerensa for the initial suggestion of using AskNot.
- Thanks to Elizabeth Krumbach Joseph for assistance, and for all her previous hard work on a similar tool, much of it incorporated into Find-A-Task.
- Thanks to Michael Hall for coming up with the name, and for getting Find-A-Task online at last.
