Possible to Contribute to Stage 3 Courses?

I was looking through some of the courses on the Incubator today, and I noticed that the Apply To Contribute button is present in Stage 3 courses. I guess I wasn't expecting that it's possible to contribute to a course that's already graduated from Beta. Just wondering: what do Stage 3 contributors do?

Every now and then, course contributors will sneak in a new sentence to keep things fresh or topical. And since many courses are now doing tree 2.0, they would be working on those expansions as well.

Oh, and of course if you report a sentence for errors, the contributors will evaluate those. At stage 3, it would most likely be adding new valid translations to a sentence.

The boring part : looking and skimming through reports, which keep coming in ever bigger numbers the more users a course has. That and correcting sentences, adding new ones and working on new tree versions, as already mentioned. Some course contributors are also forum moderators.

Yes, it is possible to contribute to a Stage 3 course, but only if the current contributors choose you to join their team.

I hope this helps!

Thanks for your quick response...do you have an idea as to what one would do as a Stage 3 contributor?

Well, it's mostly just dealing with reports, helping on the forums, creating some discussions once in a while. Writing updates. Some teams are working on a new tree version, so you would have to help out with that.

I hope this helps!
