== I want to be a mentor too! ==
Great! Read https://gist.github.com/Freso/315f0ac13a1303fcb91e first to be sure. Still want to be a mentor? Alright! If you are already involved in any of the MetaBrainz projects, just go ahead and poke Freso in [[IRC|#metabrainz on IRC]]. If you're not, the below are some highly suggested tasks to get you familiar with the various MetaBrainz projects:
# Read [[How to Contribute]] (MusicBrainz) - this one is mandatory!
## Add at least one release that isn't in the database yet
# Write a review for at least one album or concert on [https://critiquebrainz.org/ CritiqueBrainz] (if the concert or album isn't in MusicBrainz yet; add it)
# Tag some of your music files with [http://picard.musicbrainz.org/ MusicBrainz Picard] and play around with its settings.
## Submit AcoustIDs for the album(s)/release(s) you added earlier.
# Analyse the music from the album(s)/release(s) you have and submit that analysis to [http://acousticbrainz.org/ AcousticBrainz]
# (If you have a Last.FM account) Go to [https://listenbrainz.org/ ListenBrainz] and import your Last.FM data.
# ...
You should preferably be able to do the above with only little tuition from #musicbrainz and #metabrainz or you might need to invest more time than what is available before Dec. 7th if you wish to be a mentor. {{Note|Even doing all the above tasks and more, you are still not guaranteed to become a mentor. Stick around during and after the GCI and become known in the community and you will have a much better shot next year!}}
