@Toby-vc asked me a great question in a PM, talking about volunteers. What do we actually want volunteers to do? I know I want to give people a way to get involved quickly, easily, and successfully, and then get them doing useful things. But I don’t have a clear idea of what those actions are.
We have a bunch of volunteer actions on the “get involved” page, but I don’t think it’s effective at all. We also experimented with a Trello board, and other things, but nothing has worked so far.
In this thread, let’s collect ideas for (a) what we could ask volunteers to do, and (b) how best to communicate those things to give people an easy onramp. We have over 100 people on the mailing list who’ve ticked the “yes I’d like to volunteer” option, we just need to engage them. Thoughts?
