Could the FAQ include clues for the non-technical about what we can do to help?

I wandered around, I noticed things that weren't right, I wondered if I should mention it or if it was all known issues. I looked at the FAQ, then the Github thing. And then I kind of panicked because I'm Not Technical. I'm basically here because I like squeezing chickens and nibbling pigs. Contributing in a constructive way via Github is I think beyond me.

So I guess the first question is: when I wander around Ur, am I helping by creating user data? Am I keeping trees alive? Or am I just taking up valuable bandwidth that would be better used by someone who knows what they're doing and can create proper bug reports?  :)

And the second question is: if it's my misperception and submitting user reports via github is actually really easy, could the FAQ please include tips for the clueless about how to do it properly?

I noticed a few assets out of place. I didn't really consider them bugs since it's content. That said, it would be nice to have a way to report a misplaced asset. In Glitch style, maybe something that looks like an object in our inventory like a Lost and Found bin, where we click on it and then we can select an asset, which brings up a dialog box where we could enter text.

Alternately, maybe implement notes, then we can drop a note where there is a problem with a #bug hashtag. It would be a fun in-game way to report issues. It would also be something fun for us to do while in New-Ur.

So, I wandered off Google Plus when Monster World shut down (yeah, I was investing too much time in that). I think that was about a year ago. Then in the last week I've suddenly had about a dozen email alerts about people adding me. Did G+ suddenly become cool or something?

lol, I'm Kyna on Rav and my ravtar is generally my wedding photo or a close up of my dogs face.  I'd be hard to recognize.

The horror stories have been going around for years. I’m sure you’ve heard them. The New York Times was ranting about it a few weeks back. It all starts with unscrupulous lawyers. They recruit cripples to be plaintiffs in lawsuits suing small businesses for being inaccessible under the Americans with Disabilities Act. Maybe the business has no ramp or too steep of a ramp or a counter or shelf that’s too high. Then the case gets settled. The lawy...

Really good speech. I have had a few problems getting the youtube vid to play, but it is definitely worth hearing this!

I made a short science fiction video. It's a bit unsettling.

To make up for the slightly depressing last share... this one is guaranteed to end with a smile.

If you're unemployed, be worried. If you are working, be outraged that this is what your taxes are paying for.
Worker gets: JSA + expenses for a full time night shift job at Tesco.
Tesco get: an employee they don't have to pay, and some bonus cash for taking the worker on.
Taxpayer is still paying ALL of the JSA, plus the expenses, plus the bonus to Tesco, a large profit-making organisation.

Well we do, the problem is once you vote a party into power they become the government.

Story
Tagline
Knitter. Blogger. Wife. Disabled. Virtual Assistant.
Introduction
I am a geek, a knitter, and an entrepreneur. I live with my husband and our robot vacuum cleaner in suburbia and sometimes worry about how middle-class I am becoming. I am disabled and consider myself to be a minor disability activist (the paradox is that in struggling to work around the barriers I face every day, I leave myself with few resources to campaign against the fact that these barriers exist in the first place). I often think too much about things that don't require that much thought.
