Mobilizers Needed for the Common Voice Global Sprint


(Konstantina Papadea) #1

Hey Reps,

We’re looking for mobilizers like you, to help make the Common Voice Sprint on May 10-11th, a huge success by hosting sprint sites, and volunteering as reviewers.

HOST A SITE

Now is your chance to mobilize your community by registering as a sprint site host for the 2018 Global Sprint. Hosting a site is an amazing opportunity to make new connections, build community, and have fun. Click here to Register your site. *

*Remember to register the theme of your site as “Openness”.

As a site host you’ll:

  • Reserve a public space from 9am-5pm local time during the Sprint (different/limited hours are also OK)
  • Ensure your site has internet access and adequate work space (tables/chairs)
  • Help publicize the sprint in your local community, with support from Mozilla
  • Be available during your Sprint hours to welcome participants and help connect them with projects
  • Ensure that the Sprint environment is friendly, safe, and productive for all participants
  • Connect your site via video conference to our network of sites (no specialized tech needed, just computer and webcam)

BE A REVIEWER

Reviewers work during the sprint to read and validate sentences written by regular contributors during the global sprint. Reviewing is a great way to make a core contribution to Common Voice and be acknowledged by the Common Voice Team. However, we ask that you only become a reviewer for languages with which you have a very high proficiency. Click here to Register as a Reviewer.

As a Reviewer you’ll:

  • Meet with the Common Voice project lead before the sprint to learn the reviewing process
  • Be available from 9am-5pm local time during the Sprint (different/limited hours are also OK)
  • Read and approve “valid sentences” *
  • Stay connected with the Staff Team to report problems

*Note: We won’t know how many reviewers or sentences we’ll get in each language. But never fear, if you don’t have a lot of sentences to review you will still be acknowledged as a reviewer, and you will still be able to contribute by writing or finding public domain sentences.

Can’t host or review this year?, don’t worry! You can still participate virtually or find a site near you to join!

We’ll send you more information as we get closer to the sprint date!

Happy planning,

Konstantina
