Help of all types needed. Spend as much or as little time as you like. Pick an aspect that is interesting to you. If you know something about computers and the internet, great. If you don’t and want to learn, you can. Much of what we do is not that hard or complicated. And there are plenty of other things. Maintain some of our pages (maybe more pages for your village or activity), gather information, write, edit, give your opinion, somehow it all comes together as a good resource for HM residents. Be a part of it.
