    Ubuntu Forums Membership

    Just a friendly reminder to the community about the potential for Ubuntu membership via Forums Participation.

    Applying for membership can seem like an intimidating process, with a number of steps, form launchpad page, to gpg signed CoC, to testimonials, but don't let that fool you

    The staff is here to help you if you have questions or problems.

    In addition we do have an IRC channel for the forums, #ubuntuforums on freenode. I have asked those staff who use IRC to be available on this channel as well.

    Keep in mind, the idea we are trying to foster is friendship and community, so come on in from the cold =)

    Along those lines, we are working at integrating the Ubuntu Forums with the greater Ubuntu Community (irc, wiki, MOTU, askubuntu, etc). Future staff will be selected from the pool of Ubuntu Forums Members, so I would also ask the community in general to encourage those who you feel you would like to see on staff to apply for membership as well.
    There are two mistakes one can make along the road to truth...not going all the way, and not starting.

    Seems like application process is a lot easier these days -- however its likely my interpretation of the process. Kudos to all Ubuntu members -- You guys (and girls) deserve it!

    Hello,

    What is the exact problem you are having? If you are having problems with the markup then you could take a look at my wiki to see examples.

    Alternatively you might want to join us in #ubuntuforums where we will be able to help you in a live environment.

    Did you try logging into the wiki first with Ubuntu SSO, then navigating to https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Your_Hame_here ? You might have to register for SSO, though...

    Sorry to randomly post and offer help, but I have seen this as a common complaint when people ask the process for membership elsewhere, where they're not allowed to create a page (usually related to logging in or something).
