After announcing the end of support for the Army of Awesome last year, we started a onboarding project where we wrote some articles and made some videos to keep social support going through the #fxhelp hashtag on social networks. This ultimately generated the Social Helpers Add-on (repository) to guide in the first steps of how to contribute, what it is to be a Social Helper, how to access the Reply tool and set up TweetDeck to answer questions. As well as canned responses, tips from the community and links to other helpful material.
I have followed that most SUMO contributors are developers and several of them develop Add-ons and have some published in their AMO accounts. What I have proposed through this post is that everyone who has ideas and want to contribute to the development of Add-ons that facilitate the life of new contributors (even long time contributors) to give suggestions and see if it is feasible to create a group, even a repository to do that.
With the new contributors appearing with doubts on how to contribute to a certain area within SUMO, we could create a Add-on collection for SUMO to share the Add-ons that help in each area, to help everyone.
If possible, leave your comment below so we can see what you think. I hope we can talk about this on the next SUMO community meeting.
