It has been sometime since we had forum members become Ubuntu members through forum contributions.
That fact raised some concerns among the Forums Staff, making us think that the process of applying, summarized here, probably wasn’t regarded as being straightforward and simple.
The main issues that we tried to approach, and correct, were that the requirements for applying were vaguely defined and the examples given on the previous wiki page were of advanced users.
With the idea of making the process of gaining forums membership easier and less intimidating, not only the Ubuntu Membership via Forums contributions wiki page has been rewritten, covering all the potential questions an applicant might have, but also a tutorial for the Code of Conduct signing assistant page has been created, complete with screenshots to guide applicants through the steps involved in signing the Ubuntu Code of Conduct, in order to make it as easy as possible.
So, if you have been contributing to the forums for a while and are interested in becoming a Ubuntu member, please put together a wiki and Launchpad page, sign the Ubuntu Code of Conduct and dive in.
Just grab a member of staff should you have any remaining questions or doubts, they will be delighted to help you clarify any point or guide you through the process.
