    I have been using DNN for a long time.  I have lived with people rolling their eyes when I tell them I use DNN and not Wordpress.  I have watched the community dwindle and the stats of websites using DNN go down.  I am excited that it appears there is a new day dawning for the community version of DNN.  Could anyone provide some information on key areas where help is needed for someone who is NOT a software developer?  Let me know!  And thanks to all of you who continue to carry the torch!!!

      Alex,

      Super!

      Perhaps one of the best ways to get started as an active participant is to get started with one (or more) of the Advisory Groups in the community. You'll find a menu entry under Community at the top of this page.

      Perhaps the Awareness group is a good fit. Get in touch with Will Strohl for help becoming part of that group. Will shouldn't be hard to find, but let me know if you need help tracking him down.

      Another place you can help is in testing upcoming and new versions of DNN. It's a vital task, and we really need more participants in that venue.

      Hanging out here and in other venues is good. Pitch in when you have something to add.

      Hopefully others will have some more (and even better) suggestions.

        Joe, Thanks for the feedback. I will reach out to Will regarding the Awareness Advisory group. On the testing side, right now I only have a production server and will probably not upgrade until 9.4.1 comes out because of the issues (running 9.1.1 now). Looking forward to participating.

          Welcome Alex, we get the question 'How can I help' a lot, ultimately it depends on what you want and can help on. If you are not a developer but have good Dnn knowledge, testing and documentation is certainly areas where we could use help :)

            Cool!

            I think the current best thing to do would be contribute to https://www.dnndocs.com/
            Checking and suggesting / applying improvements.
