<h2>Volunteer Webmaster Quiz</h2>

<p><strong>Want to get involved with www.gnu.org?</strong>  If you're
enthusiastic, and know HTML and a little bit about our work, we'd love
to hear from you!  As a volunteer GNU webmaster, you'll be doing great
work to help support our mission.  You can usefully help with
webmastering in as little as an hour three hours a week, week or as much time as you
have.</p>
have, on a regular basis.</p>

<p>To see what our typical tasks look like, please check our <a
href="/server/standards/README.webmastering.html">Webmastering
Guidelines</a>. You may be disappointed to find out that these tasks
don't call for the elaborate webmastering techniques that are
standard nowadays, but on the other hand they are very diverse, and
often will require quite a bit of inventiveness on your part.
Moreover, they will give you experience in dealing with people and
complex organizations, a skill that may be applied to many other areas
of life.</p>

<p>Currently, these are the areas that need more help:</p>

<ul>
  <li><a href="/server/standards/#writeentry">Writing and reviewing 
  items for the Malware section</a></li>
  <li><a href="/server/standards/#mirrors">Checking the status of 
  mirrors</a></li>
  <li><a href="/server/standards/#deadlink">Fixing dead links</a></li>   
  <li><a href="/server/standards/#addimage">Adding images to the GNU 
  Gallery</a></li>
</ul>

<p>If you feel comfortable with our routine tasks, or there is any 
particular area you would like to work on, please answer the following 
questions in English as best as you can, in your own words, and email 
them to <a 
href="mailto:webmasters@gnu.org"><webmasters@gnu.org></a>.
