The IRCC is now taking applications for a number of new operator 
positions across several channels.

  * #ubuntu
  * #ubuntu-offtopic
  * #kubuntu
  * #kubuntu-offtopic
  * #edubuntu
  * #ubuntu-mythtv
  * #xubuntu
  * #xubuntu-offtopic
  * #ubuntu-bots
  * #ubuntustudio
  * #ubuntu-server
  * #lubuntu
  * #lubuntu-offtopic

(that is everything except #ubuntu-meeting #ubuntu-ops #ubuntu+1 which 
have slightly different rules)

If you’re active on our IRC channels and you are available, and if 
you’ve been aching to help, you should consider applying! You might get 
your chance if:

* You are great at resolving conflicts
* You are very patient. Superhuman nerve control is a basic IRC
operator feature
* 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 also
adhere to the Leadership Code of Conduct and the
Operator 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. We are 
particularly interested in applications from people who are frequently 
online during the 00:00 UTC to 08:00 UTC timeframe. There are quite a 
few people who have already applied to a team, you don't need to 
re-apply we will process all the pending applications.

IMPORTANT: Please follow the application process 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!
