Q: Why did my project get rejected?
A: The "Project Rejected" email should contain specific information regarding the reason(s) why, and may suggest a remedy.

      Most common reasons to date:
      Non-English Description, Multi-Lingual is more than acceptable.
      Description does not provide enough information about the project purpose and outcome.
      The project does not conform to the requirements of the project rules.
      Your project was not related to Joomla!

      Your project is not a "code" project.

Q: If I have a problem or find a bug with how can I report it?

Q: When I created my account, I typed in the wrong UNIX Name. Can you change it for me?
A: Unfortunately, this is something that we can not do. The only option is to request that we delete your project, so that you can resubmit it for approval.

Q: How to get Joomla 1.5 development versions
A: Please read this thread: ... #msg161751

Q: Why I get a "Permission Denied" message when trying to view a project?
A: The project was migrated and still needs to be activated by the admin. As soon as we get a request from the admin, we will assign the project to them. It is the admin's responsibility to make a project public.

Q: How do I join a project?
A: It's not possible to automatically join a project. A lot of projects welcome new project members to help out with the project though. If you want to join a project, please contact the project administrator. He's the person that allows you to join a project, and can assign the proper roles for it.
