    Sure, any ideas on how this would be done?

    It's because of scale, Ubuntu is a vast project with hundreds of people working on it; there's so many things going and so many changes going in that it's tough for one person (or even one group of people) to see what's going on everwhere.

    The Fridge automatically posts in it's forum here.

    Edit - and if there's something that could be done by the moderation team or admins then I'm sure we'd be happy to help.

    Totally agree with this - and I'd suspect so will most.

    But it doesn't take much thought to realise that a community team might think that the community here might prefer to know what's going to happen with the community link before - and I don't mean when it got discussed at some past UDS - but closer to the event

    I found out accidentally in #ubuntu-community-team about the whole thing.

    I have never really understood why #ubuntu-community-team exists, yet no #ubuntu-community.

    Ideas on how to make the community feel appreciated? Well first off, I need to make it clear that my perspective is mainly from the forums, which I know is not everyone's perspective in the entire community.

    But for one thing, when threads like this arise and a representative sees it, the first thing a Canonical representative should do in a post to that thread is find words to let us know that we do matter and we are appreciated. Only after that should the "answers" come. How a person opens a statement does a lot toward setting the atmosphere for how the rest of the statement will be received.

    But what would go much farther would be if we heard words of appreciation and affirmation from Canonical reps randomly without it being a response to a bunch of mad people. I know Mark Shuttleworth and other Canonical higher-ups are very busy people and that's why they have a team to work with the community. But it wouldn't be that hard for Mark and others to drop by the forums and other community venues once a year or so to let us know we're doing a good job and we matter. They wouldn't even need to monitor the thread; they could just post an affirmation and leave the community team to keep an eye on those threads. Maybe in interviews or public relations statements, from time to time they could just be mindful to mention that we have a great community that makes Ubuntu much more than just an operating system.

    There are lots of things that could be done. But I think a couple of the biggest things are for Canonical reps to just be mindful of us, and for them to choose friendly words when talking about or to us.

    With moves like this no wonder why we see canonical as corrupt.
    Perhaps there should be a big migration away from Ubuntu and other canonical products.
    Fedora?
    openSUSE?
    Mageia?

    I don't have any sense that Canonical or anyone is corrupt. That's not even in play here.

    I just find this meme comical, it is as if Mint is something different. Mint is just Ubuntu rebranded with a more ugly DE and 'sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras' executed for you. If you hate what Ubuntu represents it is hypocritical to switch to a trivial Ubuntu derivative as if you are making some kind of statement. Now if you say you will go to Debian to avoid Ubuntu's "corruption" that would be different, at least it would be more consistent (I don't agree that Canonical is "corrupt", that is too heavy an accusation that I would not make lightly)

    I certainly think we can nip that one in the bud now thanks.
