Be part of the new mobile OS from Mozilla!

You are invited to hack on the Mozilla Support wiki with us as part of the Firefox OS Apps Days. Yes, this support website is a wiki!

Our goal is to have 10 additional contributors to the English support wiki for Firefox OS.

To participate virtually:

  1. Get the Firefox OS simulator addon here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/firefox-os-simulator/
  2. Try out the Firefox OS smartphone apps and features and pick something you like to document.
  3. Log in and create a new help article here: https://support.mozilla.org/kb/create-new-knowledge-base-article

It can be just a simple 3-step article (we want small articles for easy use on a mobile phone). Here is a sample article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/add-contact-firefox-os

Click Edit article, then cut & paste the sample wiki text into your new article and change the wording for your procedure.

Here are some of the Firefox OS apps that need documentation:

   Gallery
   Video
   Utility tray
   SIM security
   App permissions
   Maps
   Browser
   Developer settings

We also have a list of existing Firefox OS articles that need more changes: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/contributors/need-changes?product=firefox-os

We also have a lot of little articles in-progress that could use your contribution!

The goal is to have 50 contributors submit articles or edits to the knowledge base wiki every day, instead of the usual 40, will you be one of us?!

Thanks to every new Firefox OS KB contributor: mandel, feer56, satdav, hermina_condei, zombie, expresssive, tjovanovic, and iNerd, rnewman, ariestiyansyah, yalam96!

We'd love to have your participation in this worldwide event *we've extended through the end of April, 2013* to create great support articles for the [Geeksphone Keon and Paek smartphones powered by Firefox OS] developer preview users.
