As an update to the community, the FC and staff are soliciting community discussion both here and on irc.
The forums irc channel is #ubuntuforums
You can use the above link for a web client or an irc client such as xchat.
So if you are interested in giving input to the staff and FC you have three options.
1. This forum (Forum Feedback & Help).
2. FC mailing list posted here - https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ForumCouncil
3. IRC - Staff are available on an ongoing basis on #ubuntuforums and FC meetings are open to the public.
We also have monthly FC meetings
The general goal is to discuss items of interest to the community on an ongoing basis and use the FC meeting as a time to make decisions.
When making changes we will make announcements in the FC monthly reports and in the respective forums.
