 * promote Launchpad to others through testimonials, screen casts, case studies and articles.

If you're interested, there are a couple of things you should take a look at:

 * the [[DocTeam/StyleGuide|Launchpad Help style guide]] and [[DocTeam/StyleGuide/UserGuideTemplate|user guide template]]
 * our [[DocTeam/ReviewProcess|review process]]
 * the [[https://edge.launchpad.net/launchpad-documentation|Launchpad Documentation project]].

If you haven't already, you should sign up for the [[http://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/launchpad-users|launchpad-users]] mailing list. The team is brand new, right now, and we'll have our first team meeting soon. In the mean time, join us in the ```#launchpad``` channel on Freenode.

If you've got any questions, ping ```mrevell``` in ```#launchpad``` or mail feedback@launchpad.net

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 will immediately remove from the team anyone who spams the wiki).
