|The Launchpad Documentation Team is a community team that helps ensure there's accurate help material about Launchpad, including:||The [[https://launchpad.net/~launchpad-doc|Launchpad Documentation Team]] is used to grant edit access to the [[https://help.launchpad.net|help wiki]] and the [[https://dev.launchpad.net/|dev wiki]]. Please [[https://edge.launchpad.net/~launchpad-doc/+join|join the team]] if you would like to edit wiki pages.|

| * the Launchpad user guide and help wiki
* Launchpad user interface text
* the [[https://launchpad.net/+tour|Launchpad tour]].
You can help by:
* filing bugs about Launchpad help materials: useful if there's a mistake you don't have access to fix or you feel there's a page or section missing from the help wiki
* correcting obvious mistakes: you can fix typos etc on most help wiki pages
* creating draft pages: if you want to suggest major changes or the content for brand new pages, create a draft on the help wiki - e.g. ```DocTeam/Draft```
== Marking pages that need work ==
If you report a bug against a particular page in the help wiki, please link the page to the bug report.

|'''NOTE:''' The team formerly had a much broader mandate to improve Launchpad's help material. However, we now share that mandate across the entire Launchpad community, so discussions about documentation should take place on the [[https://launchpad.net/~launchpad-dev|Launchpad Dev]] mailing list or in the [[irc://irc.freenode.net/#launchpad-dev|#launchpad-dev IRC channel]].|
