Hi guys,

I am applying to become an IRC channel operator in #ubuntustudio.

The reasons that I believe I am eligible to become an channel operator is
that I have been helpful in solving technical issues of users in the
channel and that I normally receive positive feedback from them. The prove
is in the channel logs in irclogs.ubuntu.com

Being a channel op of #ubuntustudio will help me to learn more about the
etiquette of IRC. It will also benefit the Ubuntu Studio team because then
I can change the channel topics and makes it easier for us to make
announcements through IRC.

Please write me a testimonial in the testimonials section of my wiki:

I thank you for your support.

With the Ubuntu Developer Summit in Copenhagen drawing to a close the
Raring Ringtail development cycle kicks off in earnest, and our core IRC
channels now support users of Ubuntu 12.10 the Quantal Quetzal. Our IRC
channels provide excellent live, peer reviewed, technical support and
information and are a great communication tool for the wider Ubuntu
project. As well as people providing technical support we have a team of
helpers who moderate the channels, maintaining a sense of order and decorum
in line with the principals of the Ubuntu Code of Conduct by being
catalysts and if all else fails using technical measures to exclude
spammers and other sources of disruption. We like to kick off each cycle by
inviting people to apply to join this team, following the application
process for the channel they are most involved in from this list (links are
to the relevant launchpad teams to apply to)













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

You can take criticism

You are happy when helping and advising others

In addition to the Code of Conduct
our IRC Guidelines
you are happy to also adhere to the Leadership Code of Conduct
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 some 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
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

We look forward to your applications!
