== Volunteer List Info ==
This page is out dated. 
Thanks for your interest in helping us out!  A few general notes about our volunteer program:
To check the up-to-date listings of volunteer opportunities, please click [http://seasteading.org/contribute/jobs-and-volunteering here].
* For budgetary reasons, we must minimize the number of paid staff, with a very few exceptions for major roles (and even there, we're trying to get people for less than their professional rates). So we will put up projects for volunteers first.
* If there are no volunteers, we will give preference to those willing to work at a discounted rate
We are using the wiki to organize the list of volunteers, since it is user-editable, which is much simpler for the TSI administrators than the previous method of having volunteers post on a forum thread or email volunteers@seasteading.org.  If you are interested in helping out, please:
* [[FillOutYourProfile]] skills (if you posted them publicly, we may have done this for you):
* Add your name to any projects/positions/sections you're interested in.
** Link your name to your seasteading.org profile with <nowiki>{{U|your_username}}</nowiki>, as you can see in the existing entries.
** Add any details, like special skills / qualifications that aren't in your profile skills section.
** If you'd need to be paid, please note that.
We have populated the list based on [http://seasteading.org/interact/forums/community/volunteering-opportunities/want-help this forum thread] and emails sent to volunteers@seasteading.org, but we may have missed some, so please check your listing and of course feel free to edit it.
== List of Projects / Areas ==
=== About The List ===
* Each role links to a description on the [http://seasteading.org/contribute/jobs-tsi#volunteers TSI Jobs/Volunteer Page]
* For filled roles, also see the [http://seasteading.org/contribute/jobs-tsi#filled TSI Jobs/Volunteer Page]
* There will be more projects available in the future, check back here or watch the blog for announcements.
* Feel free to add new roles to the Miscellaneous section at the end.  Please don't add/edit roles in earlier sections!
