EasyHacks / mini jobs for "Get involved" page

Hi everyone,

I'm posting this here as it affects multiple projects in LibreOffice!
You've probably seen our "Get involved" page on the website:

https://www.libreoffice.org/community/get-involved/

I want to improve it by adding small and simple tasks that people can
do, without having to perform lots of work or reading up beforehand. The
goal is to get people active in the project, even with a very small
task, as a first step. Then we can try to encourage people to stay
around and join us in other things!

Some ideas so far:

* Proof-reading, updating and translating FAQS:
https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Category:FAQ
* Upvoting well-written questions on Ask LibreOffice (or even answering
them)
* Translation / localisation: comparing English websites with other
versions, to see if others are missing anything
* Marketing: updating flyers and infographics

If anyone has any others, especially regarding QA and design, just let
me know :-) Thanks!

Well, the smallest and simplest QA has to offer is this:
https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/QA/GetInvolved#Quick_start_guide_for_beginners 
but it does involve reading and preparatory work.
