We generally approve all requests to join. We would only deny a request if it came from a known vandal or spammer (and of course, we would immediately remove any spammers from the team once we discover them).

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.

For example:

||<tablestyle="width: 100%; background-color: #ededed;">'''[[https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/258483|Bug 258483]] is about this page.'''||

If a page hasn't been touched in a while and needs work, please get in touch with one of the [[https://launchpad.net/~launchpad|Launchpad team]] and ask them to put this banner on that page:

||<tablestyle="width: 100%; background-color: #ededed;">'''This page needs your help!''' Can you help ensure the information on this page is accurate? If so, please make the changes directly in the page.||
