Wie alle weiterführenden Seiten sind auch die Seiten zur Registrierung, Datenerfassung und der Dokumentations-Wiki bisher auf Englisch gehalten.

Die vielleicht einfachste und schnellste Möglichkeit bei der GCD mitzuwirken ist es Titelbilder hochzuladen. Entweder sieht man die Lücken beim durchschauen der Webseite, oder sucht mit Hilfe der erweiterten Suche nach benötigten Titelbilder, dort dafür 'Cover is Needed' anklicken. Bevor neue Titelbilder auf der Seite zu sehen sind müssen diese dann noch, wie alle Beiträge, von einem anderen GCD-Mitarbeiter freigeschaltet werden.
Informationen beitragen
Fehlt ein Comic, eine Serie oder gar ein Verlag ? Willst du Informationen zu Autor, Zeichner, eine kurze Inhaltsangabe, die auftretenden Charaktere, ... eintragen ? Oder einfach nur einen nervigen Tippfehler korrigieren ? Sofern man angemeldet ist findet man auf allen Seiten die Möglichkeit die Einträge zu editieren und neue Informationen beizutragen. Da wir das Ziel verfolgen möglichst strukturierte und korrekte Daten zu haben, die es ermöglichen genaue Suchen durchzuführen, gibt es einige Regeln wie das erfolgen sollte. Nach dem Submitten der Beiträge gibt dann ein GCD-Mitarbeiter Rückmeldung ob die verschiedenen Informationen an den richtigen Stellen stehen.
Technische Unterstützung
Wir können Mitarbeit auch auf der technischen Ebene gebrauchen. Webdesigner, Webprogrammierer (HTML / JavaScript / Django), oder auch Kenntnisse in Python oder MySQL können uns weiterhelfen.
Import von existierenden Daten
Wer schon Daten in einer Datenbank oder einer Textdatei hat kann diese unter Umständen in die Datenbank importieren. Zu jedem Comic kann man mit Hilfe einer Textdatei bestehende Informationen hochladen. Genauere Informationen zum Format einer solchen Datei gibt es hier.
