Hello GitHub Community Forum!

 

This is our Weekly Welcome, where we'd like to welcome new members to the GitHub Community Forum and make it easy to find out about some of the week’s hottest topics and important events.

 

Please make yourself at home and start exploring all the different areas of the Community Forum. We have some great Community Forum resources to help you get started. You can also find out about current and future events by checking out the information below.

 

And if you’re so inclined, don’t forget to say hello!* If you’re new here, reply to this topic and introduce yourself. You can share a little about who you are, what language you like to code in or learn more about, what you want to learn about using GitHub, and/or what you hope to get out of the Community Forum. We look forward to hearing from you!

Hi

Hi. I'm Sondra. I'm new here. I'm not good at computers but I speak English, Italian, french, spanish and a little bit of russian and I believe that information should be free. I think I Can work as a translator. Do you have something for me?

Re: Hi

Hi @Sondra8121!

Nice to meet you! Thanks for being here! 

We don't allow job listings on the GitHub Community Forum at this time, so you won't find paid job listings here, but translation is a service that is definitely needed on many projects for localization. If you're looking for volunteer opportunities on Open Source Projects, you've come to the right place. :)

One good way to find projects looking for help is to use the GitHub search feature to find issues in which people are asking for translation support.

 

Hope this helps!

I sincerely hope that this is the type of website that i think it is....

I hold the type of people who come here and do what they do in the highest regard. I have always had the upmost respect for those who are extremely knowledgeable when it comes to computers. I consider myself mediocre at best. Over the past year, maybe longer..I have had trouble with my laptops and phones. I know that someone has been hacking my things, gathering information about me, and who knows what else. I have made a lot of progress in stopping this, but the road ahead i fear is still a long one. One small example i'll include here, I contacted Google over my email being hacked...and they wouldnt tell me anything whatsoever...which leads me to believe that it may be law enforcement thats the culprit. Once again, i am unsure if this is the sort of thing that i am able to receive advice on here, but if so...it would mean the world. I would just like to chat with someone about it sometime..if thats feesable...i value your time and expertise...any and all help would be greatly appreciated....Michael.

I'm sorry to hear that you're having these kinds of problems. Not being able to trust the computers, systems, and devices that we've come to depend upon to do our day-to-day work and other activities can be very frustrating.

 

Unfortunately, this isn't the kind of thing that we're going to be able to help with. For what you're describing, I typically recommend contacting the Crash Override Network. They specifically help with hacking and security, impersonation, doxing, stalking, and more. If you're looking for more of a do-it-yourself kind of thing, the Smart Girl's Guide to Privacy comes highly recommended.

 

I hope that helps and that things get better soon!
