It’s the final week of the Month of LibreOffice, November 2018…

…and if you haven’t yet been awarded a sticker pack, you still have a few days to get involved, help to improve LibreOffice, and join our friendly community! Here’s how it works:

So far, over 260 sticker packs have been awarded, so if you’ve contributed to the project, your name (or username) should be somewhere in the list! (If we’ve missed a contribution, let us know in the comments below.)

But if you’re not on the list, here are some ways to get your stickers:

  • Answer questions from users: Over on Ask LibreOffice there are many users looking for help with the suite. We’re keeping an eye on that site so if you give someone useful advice, you can claim a shiny sticker.
  • Help to confirm bugs: go to our Bugzilla page and look for new bugs. If you can recreate one, add a comment like “CONFIRMED on Windows 10 and LibreOffice 6.1.2”. (Make sure you’re using the latest version of LibreOffice.)
  • Spread the word: Tell everyone about LibreOffice on Twitter! Just say why you love it or what you’re using it for, add the #libreoffice hashtag, and at the end of the month you can claim a sticker. (We have a maximum of 100 stickers for this category, in case the whole internet starts tweeting!)
  • Translate the interface: LibreOffice is available in a wide range of languages, but its interface translations need to be kept up-to-date. Or maybe you want to translate the suite to a whole new language? Get involved here.
  • Contribute code: The codebase is big, but there are lots of places to get involved with small jobs. See our Developers page on the website and this page on the wiki to get started. Once you’ve submitted a patch, if it gets merged we’ll send you a sticker!
  • Write documentation: Another way to earn a badge is to help the LibreOffice documentation team. Whether you want to update the online help or add chapters to the handbooks, here’s where to start.

So dive in and have fun! At the end of the month, we’ll post an update on this blog, explaining how to get your sticker pack. Stay tuned!
