December Volunteer Signups are Open!

December 1, 2009

Once again, this month’s volunteering requirement is on a 30 point system.  Rather than having shop hours and work days, you can now choose how you want to volunteer for HackPittsburgh each month.  This means that unpleasant tasks like cleaning the bathroom can help you get your 30 points faster, and you can negotiate for the value of other tasks.

Here’s how it works!

  1. Visit the Doodle Poll (link below) for this month’s volunteer hours, and pick something off the list that you would like to do
    • We’ve added a wishlist of extra volunteering ideas!
    • If there’s something you’d like to do that’s not on the list, drop an email to and let us know!
    • Remember, some things only need to be done occasionally.  For example, don’t sweep the shop if someone did it the day before.
  2. Do the thing you picked!
  3. Add your name and the task that you completed to the Doodle Poll, and check off the day(s) that you did it.
  4. Repeat steps 1-3 until you have at least 30 points!

If you have any questions about how the new system works, please drop an email to  We’d also like to hear your feedback!
