View Full Version : Application for Ubuntu Membership -- QIII

July 3rd, 2012, 03:58 AM
I would like to apply for Ubuntu membership through the forums.

My wiki page can be found at: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/QIII

My launchpad page can be found here: https://launchpad.net/~qiii (https://launchpad.net/%7Epaddyhayes)

Thanks for your consideration!

I'll be the first to +1 this. :)

QIII is supportive, knowledgeable, and acerbically witty- but not arrogant or condescending. I fully support his application.
Plus he has a great signature.
Edit: had. :-?

July 3rd, 2012, 04:09 AM
Thanks, cortman!

Yeah, the various incarnations of my signature were too long to add the links. Sigh.

July 3rd, 2012, 07:19 AM
Good luck with the application,

+1 from me.

July 3rd, 2012, 08:59 AM
I'd like to unreservedly add my support to QIII's application.

I've seen his excellent contributions in the Server and Security sub-forums where I'm most active, and been impressed with his depth of knowledge and his ability to break complex issues down into individual, much simpler, components. He does so in a very patient and courteous way.

I've also noticed his contributions in the FF&H sub-forum, patiently answering the same question over and over without once expressing the weariness I'd find it impossible to disguise in the same situation.

QIII, I hope you get Ubuntu membership, I really believe you've demonstrated your suitability many times over.

July 3rd, 2012, 09:14 AM
Absolutely +1

July 3rd, 2012, 02:56 PM
A +1 from me as well. Good luck QIII. Have a gold star :KS

July 3rd, 2012, 03:10 PM

Many thanks to Elfy, spynappels, nothingspecial, matt_symes, raja.genupula and sammiev.

I wasn't sure if I was going to get all dressed up and not be asked to dance! ;)

July 3rd, 2012, 05:51 PM
+1 here as well. Good luck.

July 3rd, 2012, 06:46 PM
Many thanks, Toz!

+1 from me.

I always enjoy QII pragmatic responses, not scared to speak out and veer away from the herd.

Best of luck

Thanks, haqking!

Your words are kind. My wife usually expresses that sort of thing by saying "stubborn old goat".

I take it you took a bit of a break from helping people with their wireless issues to stop by here?

Application for Ubuntu Membership -- QIII

Please give QIII your serious consideration for full Ubuntu Membership !
He was very helpful to me with my AMD Video Display Driver questions (please see Post).

Thread Subject: How to Uninstall AMD CCC 11.12 (AMD Display Driver ver 8.92)
Here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2020554

QIII was very patient with my ignorance and left me with a better understanding and appreciation for the Ubuntu endeavour !

QIII will be a Fine Addition to the official Ubuntu Community!

Ubuntu Novice - but working on it !

Thanks, Johnny M!.

I just added another post to that thread re: Jaunty. I'd upgrade if I were you...

July 9th, 2012, 10:42 PM
Whenever I see QIII's posts anywhere they are always helpful and are usually in depth and detail. In addition, QIII is always courteous and polite.



July 10th, 2012, 03:07 AM
Thanks, Kopkins!

You must have been lucky enough just to see my nice posts! ;)

July 12th, 2012, 01:46 PM

July 14th, 2012, 11:57 PM
Thanks MarkV13!

Wish we could have found a better resolution. :(

July 15th, 2012, 05:32 PM
+1 for QIII's Ubuntu membership. Good luck!

July 15th, 2012, 06:52 PM
Thanks oldos2er! I appreciate your support!

July 17th, 2012, 07:55 PM
After a review of QIII's activity, I wholeheartedly +1 him for membership. (not that my opinion makes much difference :P)

In my opinion, QIII appears (based on a brief review of his posts and threads) to be extrememly helpful and is a very active member of the Ubuntu Forums community, and wholeheartedly deserves membership.

QIII: Good luck on your membership! :)

July 17th, 2012, 08:43 PM
Thanks, Lord Of Time!

I appreciate your support!

July 18th, 2012, 04:29 PM
Good luck, QIII!!
He's consistently a really helpful forums member.

After a review of QIII's activity, I wholeheartedly +1 him for membership. (not that my opinion makes much difference :P)

True for me too.

July 18th, 2012, 05:19 PM
Thank you kindly, blackbird34!

I appreciate it!

July 22nd, 2012, 10:41 PM
If it's allowed, i'll add a second +1...

Therefore, a +2 from me in total, wait make that +9999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999 99999999999999999 but I don't have time to add that many posts and +1's so I give it all here.

July 23rd, 2012, 12:02 AM
Just because I paid you $50 the first time, don't get greedy! ;)

Just because I paid you $50 the first time, don't get greedy! ;)

Gotta give a +1 to someone with a good sense of humour.

July 23rd, 2012, 06:34 PM
+1 - QIII has been an extremely helpful member of the community, and has helped me a few times as well in the past :)

July 23rd, 2012, 06:55 PM
Many thanks to you both, Irihapeti and sandyd!

I appreciate the support!

July 24th, 2012, 06:55 PM
+1 from me. What else is there to do with an ex-Army person who has discrete customers?

July 24th, 2012, 07:04 PM
Thanks, cprofitt.

Yeah, good thing you gave me a +1. I was about to send the guys in black suits and shades to come to your door, throw a hood over your head, throw you into a black SUV and drive off with you!

OK. Well. Not THAT sort of discretion.

July 27th, 2012, 09:02 PM
From what I have seen you deserve it!

July 27th, 2012, 11:32 PM
Thank you! I appreciate the support!

(And you don't appear to have seen the things that make me not deserve it! ;) )

July 28th, 2012, 04:14 AM
+1 From me as well

July 28th, 2012, 11:30 PM
Thanks, Dlambert! I definitely appreciate your support!

August 2nd, 2012, 05:45 PM
As a very new member of the Ubuntu Forums community, I've already come across a good few posts where QIII has given valuable support and injected humour into the threads.

+1 from me (and remember, just because I'm new doesn't mean 1≠1)

August 2nd, 2012, 05:59 PM
Thank you for your support Breadified!

It is my earnest hope that you will continue to come across my useful posts and not my appallingly stupid ones!

August 4th, 2012, 09:51 AM
Congratulations on your successful membership application. :)
