How do I add myself as a player for a module?

Log in to the site and go to the page for the module you're interested in. Clicking on the "edit" link for the Players section (to the right of the section heading) will take you to a page where you can edit the section. Add your name and email address on a new line. For example, if your name is Bob Example and your email address is bob@example.com, then you would add

* {{email|bob@example.com|Bob Example}}

to the editor. When finished, click the "Show preview" button, check that your changes worked, and then click "Save page" to save your changes.
