I just recently made the switch to Arch (from an Ubuntu / Mint background) and I'm loving every minute of it. I was a little intimidated before, but now that I've actually made the attempt (and succeeded!) at building Arch, I can't believe how easy, fun and informative (and a little frustrating) it's been.
With that in mind, and knowing that Arch doesn't have the sheer number of people as Ubuntu, and is community driven, how can I help contribute to the project? I have absolutely no coding knowledge, but I can follow directions and like to learn.
Welcome to the forums. One of the main strengths of arch is it's documentation - the wiki in particular. Many questions you will come up with are already answered there. This one is linked on the front page of the wiki: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Getting_Involved
Well, fair enough! Thanks.

Enjoy and thank you for your contribution.
I'm torn apart between worlds. Basically, using vim in a highly visual environment with a lot of mouse features feels like soldering a lose wire to a motherboard with a Zippo and a needle, while working with ANY TEXT AT ALL with a "modern GUI" text editor feels like joining the London Philharmonic Orchestra with a Fisher-Price Laugh and Learn Magical Musical Mirror. --Awebb
