Ubuntu members are the core community of Ubuntu, and include 
translators, doc providers, the people who promote Ubuntu in their 
cities and companies. Anyone who has made and continue to make a 
substantial contribution to Ubuntu in any field can be a member. Members 
vote to confirm nominations I make for new places on the Community Council.


As an active moderator with an interest in the community you would 
certainly be a candidate for membership. It's not automatic, and it 
means taking a stand on what you think Ubuntu should aim for and how you 
want to help it get there, and sometimes it takes a while for the 
Community Council to approve a new member, but there are no restrictions 
to the type of contribution that qualifies you for membership.
