As you may have noticed, we made some improvements in LearnDoubleEntry.org website.
a) it is now possible to "freeze" and "unfreeze" a firm -- this can be useful in different ways, expecially for students asked to complete an exercise with a due date (and for their teachers who must check the works submitted) -- seehttp://blog.learndoubleentry.org/2013/12/freeze-unfreeze-your-firm.html
b) a student asked to be allowed to place a graphic banner in his firm's public page -- it is now possible: just upload an image in the firm's configuration page, and you are done
c) the public page of a firm has now clickable accounts on the general journal, and this allows to access the ledger -- seehttp://blog.learndoubleentry.org/2013/12/ledgers-on-firms-public-page.html
d) when a firm is forked, the default language for the account names is now taken from the user's language preferences, if available
In a school, LearnDoubleEntry.org has been used to play "Accounting Monopoly": students had fun, and learned a lot of things -- see http://blog.learndoubleentry.org/2013/12/accounting-monopoly.html
Please take a look at the blog post "10 ways to contribute to an open source project without writing code", by Heiko W. Rupp -- https://opensource.com/life/13/10/ten-ways-open-source-projects -- everything written there applies perfectly to this site, and we'd love to have a helping hand.
