Further, if you have an idea for a new text project, contact Bazookajeff.
2. Adding your Files

It is advised that you send your pull request to the markdown files (.md) or the raw text files if you are unfamiliar with markdown files. Here is a tutorial that explains how to add and edit a markdown file.

Contributing to and modifying getmasari.org
Since late 2018, the "official" masari website has been hosted on github. This way everything on the site is completely transparent and anybody can propose changes. To propose changes to this site you need a github account. Then you can fork the site's source at https://github.com/masari-project/masari-project.github.io. This github repo acts as a directory on a webserver; any file and subdirectory in this repo will be accessible under the getmasari.org domain. The structure for the current site was made by a community member and is wordpress-esque. Admittedly, it's rather messy. Of course, by convention, the main page is index.html and most of your changes will come from there. Making meaningful contributions should only require basic HTML knowledge. Once you have made all of the changes you wish to propose and have comitted them to your fork, you must make a Pull Request to upstream. The pull request can then be viewed and discussed by other community members and can then be approved and merged by a Masari Core Team member.

8. What to do if You Are Not Familiar With Github
You can reach out to BazookaJeff on Twitter to help you get started. Github can look pretty daunting but it’s actually fairly straightforward getting started. If you have experience with image manipulators, word processors, and / or editing, you can get started in a few simple steps. You can read this guide here about how to create a pull request. For a broad overview of using Github, go here.
Please note that if you fork the project and / or edit it, it will make your own copy and you will not harm the project in any way. Once you fork the project and make some changes locally, you can submit your work via a pull request to be merged into the project. Full images can simply be uploaded into the appropriate folder.
In short, don’t let using Github hinder you from contributing as all help is needed and welcome at Masari!
