New Volunteer Orientation for WP Support Contributors: Dec 9

WP Support Team is planning an orientation session for new Support Contributor volunteers on Sunday, December 9 at 10:30 am CST, in conjunction with Contributor Day at WordCamp US.

We will “meet” in the #forums Slack channel, and walk through the basics of helping out on the wordpress.org support forums, and give some pointers for getting started. We anticipate that this orientation will last 15-20 minutes.

If you know someone who would like to start helping in the forums, please do encourage them to come and start contributing to WordPress!

To participate, new volunteers will need to create a wordpress.org user account if they don’t already have one, then create an account on Slack and join the #forums channel. If you already have a wordpress.org user account (perhaps you have posted a question in the forums before), then you can use that account.

Long-time volunteers are welcome to participate as a refresher, but we especially welcome any new volunteers who might be interested in helping answer topics in the wordpress.org support forums, whether you are present in Nashville for Contributor Day, or somewhere else in the world. Support is a great place to start helping with WP and give back to the community!
