Hello Ubuntu GNOME Community,

I had something in mind and I wanted to share it with all of you :)

First of all, I have done some changes to this Page:


I think, and speaking from long experience, the best way to recruit members
to our team is to do that with beginners and newcomers who have passion and
desire and above all, willing to learn. Therefore, instead of having two
groups: Users and Members, I think having a 3rd group will be so helpful
for our future.

Ubuntu GNOME 101 -

is a project that does not require special skills nor so much time. It
needs interested people, that is all.

Please note that this is just a draft/proposal and nothing on solid ground

I will try to create a new wiki page to explain more in depth about this
project. I am not just willing to help newcomers but also to make them
ready for the future when they can contribute back to the community.

What this project really needs is resources, guides, howtos, etc. This is
not a one-man-task and this is not going to happen in one or even one week.
This is an accumulated task which will begin in few steps and end up with a
rich content table of valuable and priceless information.

Also, please note that we are not in hurry. This is totally a new
experience to this community. We do have all the time to take it step by
step and easy. We are not in hurry and this is not a high priority for the
team but for me, I will dedicate some time for it and if you are willing to
help, you are more than welcome.

The idea is very very simple. It is like a new client walk in to your shop.
You greet him in a very nice way. Ask him to sit and relax while you
explain about your service. If you are selling something, say food (sweet,
ice-cream, whatever), you offer him some to taste. All in all, you do your
best to exceed his expectations. Same goes for Ubuntu GNOME 101. When a new
user come and ask something, you show extra care and help/supprt to make
them feel home. You will be dazzled and amazed of how fast and quickly they
will learn and start helping. It happened with me 3 years ago. And I do
believe it could happen with others.

Beside Computers, I have 3 years experience at Call Center and Customer
Service. I've been active team leader and I've always exceeded my
customers' expectations. So, trust me, it is NOT hard, just be nice and
helpful, that is ALL about Ubuntu GNOME 101 :)

As for how to build/have some guides, howtos, etc ... we can discuss that
later :)

Thank you for reading!

I love Ubuntu GNOME :D
