Call for New Operators in the #ubuntu, #kubuntu and #ubuntu-offtopic

The IRCC is now taking applications for a number of new operator positions
in the following channels: #ubuntu #kubuntu and #ubuntu-offtopic. The
particular area of need is for people with availability between the times of
12am to 7am UTC.

So if you’re active on our IRC channels and you are available in the
specified times (or at least part of them), and if you’ve been aching to
help, you should consider applying for membership! You might get your chance

    * You are great at resolving conflicts
    * You are very patient. Superhuman nerve control is a basic IRC operator
    * You can take criticism
    * You are happy when helping and advising others
    * In addition to the Code of Conduct and our IRC Guidelines, you are
happy to adhere to some additional guidelines :)

In general, please do not consider becoming an operator because it could be
“fun”. It is not, it’s hard work. However, it is often quite rewarding, and
you get to operate with a great team of people. You don’t need to be an IRC
guru, but you do need to know enough to be able to learn more.

Please be aware that *many* applicants will not become operators for various
reasons. This will not necessarily be because we think you would make a bad
operator. Only a limited number of operators are ever needed, some timezones
are better covered already than others, and so on.

IMPORTANT: Please follow the application process at: and additionally
note your available times on your wiki page. Having your wiki page listed on
your LP page is also useful to aid us in finding your information.

We look forward to your applications!
