Hey Jbuck, I noticed that there's a mistake in the text to the auto-response email from the form on mozilla.org/contribute

It tells people to introduce themselves on the community mailing list, but does not provide the link to sign up, only the email address which blocks non-members so they're probably not getting through (may be a good thing since we get tons of spam...)

So can you replace it with this correct text below?


Thanks for your interest in Mozilla's educational initiative, Webmaker. We promote web literacy around the world with hands-on making and interest-driven learning.

Here are a few resources to help you get started.

# Make Something With the Web

We believe making and learning go hand-in-hand. Try our open suite of tools to create, animate and remix web content and improve your web skills as you go:


# Webmaker Mentors

Webmaker Mentors are fiercely unconventional  technologists, thinkers, and creators. We care about empowering everyone to be makers of the web – and pushing the limits of what's possible online.

We help learners make amazing things on the web and level up their digital skills as they go. We promote radical inclusion and support learning anywhere - in our homes, offices, neighborhoods and online.

Please introduce yourself on our community mailing list. We don't bite!


# Webmaker Teaching Kits

These teaching kits are full of activities and resources to help you facilitate learning sessions with a focus on webmaking. You'll find everything you need, from a pedagogical overview to tips on assessing participants' progress. Print them out, load them on your tablet or phone or simply use them as inspiration:


Mozilla is deeply committed to identifying the skills, competencies and literacies necessary to read, write and participate on the web, and our teaching kits align with the Web Literacy Standard.

# Webmaker Events

Attending or organizing a Webmaker event is a great way to put these teaching kits and skills into practice. Gather your friends and family, grab a computer, and start making the web.

Find an event near you: https://webmaker.org/events

And check out tips on organizing a hands-on Webmaker event: https://webmaker.org/guides

# Let's teach the web!

Thank you for your interest in education and teaching the web. Please feel free to use and remix these resources and to share your experiences with the Webmaker Mentor community.


All the best,

-- The Mozilla Webmaker Mentor team

Previously, contributors who signed up would be directed to send email

mailing list first.
