The Maemo community is an active one, and there are lots of areas to get involved and help out. This is an overview of a few of those areas and how to get involved. As you will get more involved, you will see your karma level rise, and your name will climb the Maemo community karma list.
There are many ways to get involved with maemo.org and its development.
Once you create a Maemo profile you will be able to add comments to your favourite products and rate them, you will be able to favourite or bury blog posts and maemo.org news items, and you will be able to edit pages in the wiki. There is a dedicated page with tips on writing maemo.org content, including how to get access to various resources.
Brainstorm is where proposals for enhancements, new features, new applications etc can be put to the community for discussion. All community members can post their ideas here, and developers are encouraged to look for ones they could help out with.
The wiki is always in need of more help and the Maemowiki Action Group is an excellent place to start if you're looking for areas to help out. If you're not looking for too much structure, you'll likely find small typos and grammatical errors to fix while browsing around. New articles are always highly appreciated!
The Maemo Talk forums are a great place to get help and hang out with fellow Maemo users.
