Volunteers Needed On HelpDesk
Help Us Help You
The Documentation Team has current
projects in several important areas. Your contribution in this work would be greatly
appreciated and a valuable contribution to the users of Chebucto Community Net.
Your assistance as a Volunteer is an very important
resource for Chebucto Community Net but this does not mean we have to be
the most time-consuming or most important activity you undertake.
Much of what you see on CCN was accomplished a little at a time,
over a period of weeks. You can decide whether to work independently
or in collaboration with others. What you contribute will be
enjoyed by hundreds of other users and may well be used by other
community nets around the world. Despite this incredible potential,
volunteering can be very simple and not overly demanding.
If you are not sure how to start, what to start on or what we need,
start by looking around the HelpDesk for the things you use most or
perhaps that you would like to learn. Is there something we don't
explain or that you can explain better about what interests you?
A CCN user becomes comfortable, even adept at such things
as mail within a few months. You have more experience than you
think, so share it with the next person and learn more.
Do you use news on CCN? Would you like to learn how? Explore
the newsgroups if you are not already familiar. Try writing a
document that explains step by step how to post news or perhaps how
netnews works. If you don't know html yet, you can still create
a document and let someone else show you how to quickly do the
"markup". Did you know that we have how-to materials on line for
using html? Find them at the HelpDesk.
Explore the Internet and let us know when you find how-to
information that is useful to Chebucto Community Net users.
Some examples of what CCN needs people to do:
Remember that you can collaborate with someone!
- Revise existing documents
- Locate help materials elsewhere on the Internet
- Write process documents that explain steps
- Write concept documents that describe what a feature is for
- Write explanatory documents giving or explaining guidelines
- Test new features and write explanations of how they work
