Time again for another call for volunteers here!

Here's what we very much need right now.

Ideally, I would like a few new volunteers willing to work all areas of the site (not just the boards) for a minimum of two hours per week, and better still, three or four. I need any new volunteers to be able to absolutely commit to that kind of time for at least six months.

If you want to have modding the boards (which includes answering questions, creating new topics and moderating discussions) be part of what you do, you will need to have a 50-post minimum here, and to have demonstrated you know how to really work the boards and give accurate, compassionate answers. But even for those not there yet, we very much need regular bloggers, folks to find resources to add to our resource lists, those to write new articles or fact-check/update some existing ones. I can also assign other duties in line with your skillsets, like design work, research, the works.

For those of you in college, I'm always glad to make a volunteer position work with any internships you might be able to get credit for.
If you've interest, drop me a line via the contact us link below. If you have questions, you can email them or post them here. Thanks so much!

Is it possible to be a volunteer in only one section of the boards?

Generally, board moderators are expected to focus on one or two sections, but still have an eye around the boards as a whole. Sometimes, a given section will sit very quiet for days whole others are bustling and in need of all of our efforts.

As well, it'd be tough to get the minimum time requirement in at just one section.
