    Question Joining the Beginners Team

    Joining the Beginners Team (BT) :

    First, thank you for you interest in the Beginners Team. Although the focus is on new users, this team is a resource for all members of the Ubuntu Forums and greater Ubuntu Community.

    Additional information about the Beginner Team can be found at Ubuntu Wiki ~ Beginner Team Page

    ABT = Absolute Beginners Talk Forum ~ GH = General Help Forum

    Working with the team :

    To some extent on/off the team is somewhat artificial. The option of working with our team is open to all Ubuntu Forum members, either via helping new users, posting ideas on this forum, contributing documentation targeting new users, etc. You are also welcome to join us on our irc channel :

    1. Use the Beginners Team to communicate with the Beginners Team. How can we better assist new users ?
    2. Raise awareness of the availability or our team as a potential resource on ABT and GH.
    3. You are always welcome to submit suggestions, how-to's, feedback to the Beginners Team to assist us in our work.
    4. Please note : The BT forums is not the best place for technical assistance.



    Joining the team : Welcome Padawan


    Joining the team is a nice way to deepen your involvement with the Ubuntu Community. Active participants should be willing to dedicate 5-10 hours / week to the team and our various activities. We are a community within Ubuntu dedicated to assisting new users transition to Ubuntu.

    1. History with the Ubuntu forums. If you are new to the forums and would like to help start by familiarizing yourself with the layout of the forums and how to navigate them, search for information, use [code] and [quote] tags, etc. Start helping new users on ABT.
    2. Please review the Ubuntu code of conduct. Respect, give it, get it, got it ?
    3. irc is currently the best method to become involved with the beginner team. The channel is somewhat informal and a place to feel more connected with the Ubuntu community. Knowing/learning irc has become essential to team members. If you do not know how to irc, ask for help.
      Beginner Team IRC Channel is on Freenode , but has moved to #ubuntu-beginners
    4. Tell us about yourself. I would like to encourage you to join Wiki and Launchpad and establish a "home page". A home page is generated for you automatically when you register, but it is up to you to populate. Do not feel you need to be a developer to join the Beginner Team, and do not chase your tail. Simply start a wiki page and tell us about yourself. You may use the following examples as "templates" and as always, feel free to ask for assistance.

    5. As with the forums, there is no absolute Ubuntu knowledge requirement, only that you are interested in assisting new users. We do have "the quiz" , a set of questions where you can demonstrate your Ubuntu prowess, .
    6. Once you have established a rapport with the team you will be "nominated" and added to the agenda at the next team meeting. Attendance to the meeting is encouraged.
    7. There is almost overwhelming interest in the Beginners Team ie join requests. Please proceed with the above steps rather then waiting for some kind a a response to join requests.



    Current needs :
    1. Our current need is to recruit someone interested and experienced with a wide range of hardware.
    2. We would like to identify a few users familiar with KDE/XFCE and alternate WM (*box,IceWm, etc).

    There are two mistakes one can make along the road to truth...not going all the way, and not starting.

    Hey whats up? I would like to help I can do 5-10 hours a week. I'm using feisty fawn ubuntu 7.04. I just took my comptia A+ and Networking+ certifications. I think I can help out a bit as I'm not (officially)working right now. I've been into this stuff from the rip. Any questions about networking or hardware I think I may be able to help.

    I might not be able to do 5-10 hrs a week, but i am familiar with not only Gnome/KDE, but i also use Fluxbox, XFCE, and Enlightenment (and have most WMs installed). I already made a join request. I have some experience with hardware too and hope to help some new Ubuntu users become Ubuntu Experts.

    Re: Joining the Beginners Team

    Hey, I'd like to help out, if I can. I can do the hours on the forum, and I just started using IRC.
    I havn't been using Ubuntu that long (since May), but I've reinstalled it plenty of times, so I'm getting good at the basics

    I'm using KDE right now, and I'm gonna use XFCE on an old machine I'm getting.
    So... let me know?

    Re: Joining the Beginners Team

    Hi.
    I might be able to help for about 5-8 hours per week.
    My experience is with wireless, connecting static and dhcp servers, etc. I'm not a linux geek but I have linux experience and started ubuntu since 5.04 release.
    Actually I'm upgrading all my boxes to Gutsy tribe 5 (all of them) as I see it is stable enough from my point of view and needs.
    My mother language is Spanish so I can also help the this community if desired, but I prefer English as I'm more familiar with English techy stuff.
    Regards
    Luis

    Re: Joining the Beginners Team

    This sounds like a good idea. I've used CentOS, SuSE, Ubuntu, Xubuntu, Kubuntu, FedoraCore, and I've worked with all of these on all wireless networks as well as wired ones. Every trouble I've had with my distros has been solved, so I should know how to fix most user problems, if not I have no problem asking for help. I could devote 12+ hours a week to being on the forums. I also have seen and fixed permission problems, hard drive errors, and especially reconfiguring the xconf file. Right now I am using Xubuntu 7.04 on my home built computer.

    It would be great to help out new users adapting to Ubuntu or other linux distros, as I was once a Windows and Mac user, but have finally found my home using linux.

    Let me know if I make the cut!
