Become a developer FAQ

Why do you need to ask first to become a developer?

There are several reasons why you need to ask to become a developer. The number one reason is of course the spammer problem. A developer has several special rights. He can modify the wiki for example. And we would have a hard time when we would allow spammers to edit our documentations. Because we simply cannot say if a new user is a spammer or not. That's why we need to sort the users that wants to become developers.

How should you aks to become a developer?

As yo wish. It's not bound to any form. I'm as happy with a "Yo, make me developer" as with a "Dear sir ..."

It would be interesting to know in which area you want to work though. When you're a programmer, and want to work at a special module, then write it. When you want to work at the wiki, then write it. When you just want to have a look, and love to stand at the fence for a while, then write it.

You can either drop a note in this forum section. Or you can write a PM to one of the admins or moderators.
