How do I become part of Anonymous?
Good news: you already are! You may commence operations by whatever method seems best to you,
limited only by your abilities and conscience. It would be sensible to start with legal methods, at least until
you’re sure you know how to remain anonymous online, and/or are sure that the risks of illegality are
justified by your goals.
I don’t know how to hack. What can I do to help?
Plenty! Here are some suggestions:
Do original research/investigations
Sort through data obtained in prior hacks
Write or proofread press releases
Create posters and other images
Participate in discussions about how best to carry out current operations (ops)

Raise money for legal defense of Anons who’ve been arrested or subpoenaed
Publicize other people’s research, press releases, videos, etc.

How do I communicate with other Anons and learn about current ops?
This subverse is already an excellent starting place!

is VoxAnon at irc.voxanon.net, or head to http://irc.lc/voxanon if you're new.

How many people are in Anonymous?
I’m a journalist. How do I get an official statement from Anonymous?
You don’t. Anonymous has no official spokespeople. Anyone claiming to be an "official" anything is lying.
Where do I find general information about Anonymous?
Is there a complete list of past Anonymous ops?
No, but ED has a large list of pre-Maskfaggotry for you to browse
Anonymous used to be cool, but now it sucks!
That’s not a question. Feel free to try to guide things in a direction more to your liking, or start your own damn social movement. (TL;DR: STFU & GBTW)
Anonymous, please help! I need you to . . .
Anonymous is not your personal army. Anyone can suggest a new op, but only a small percentage are acted upon. It is unlikely that your suggested op will be acted upon unless there are lulz involved.
Anonymous, why did you do [this]? Instead you should have done [that]!
Please fill out one of these and send it to Chris-chan
