    contributing

    Please, keep in mind that you are a participant, not a customer.

    If you'd like to help the GNU Social network grow, you can contribute in different ways.

    1. Donate to the administrator of your server (if you have the means to do that).
    2. Set up your own instance, to make federation stronger and healthier, with many small servers.
    3. Spread the word. Invite your friends. Explain why it's important.
    4. Contribute with code. Send a pull request. Resolve an issue. Take a bounty.
    5. Help translating. Design promo materials. Print and distribute stickers.

    Thank you. See you in GNU Social.
