Dreamwidth places a big emphasis on its volunteers, who can help in a variety of areas across the site. For information on why we think volunteers are awesome, you can read the page about our Volunteer philosophy and the Guide to happy and effective volunteering.
We welcome all volunteers who want to contribute to Dreamwidth.
General Volunteering Information
If you want to volunteer in any area where you will produce code or text for the site (FAQs etc.), you will need to fill out a Contributor Licensing Agreement.
There are several areas in which we need volunteers. Information on who leads the projects and how they can be contacted can generally be accessed on the Project Teams page.
Accessibility on Dreamwidth is the process of making the site and everything related to it accessible to everyone, no matter their ability level. The official LJ community for that project is dw_accessibility.
We are trying to keep Dreamwidth as clear from spam as possible. This project's official community is located at dw_antispam.
Documentation involves working on site documentation, like FAQs.
The Dreamwidth community for beginning documentation volunteers is dw_docs_training.
The Dreamwidth community for beginning development volunteers is dw_dev_training.
Styles encompasses things like designing new layouts for Dreamwidth, creating mood themes, documentation of existing styles, and so forth. Dreamwidth's styles team community is located at dw_styles.
