I've been a member of Ubuntu Forums since the end of May 2007, joining there to get a few answers and have spent many hours there since helping others.
I contribute to the Ubuntu Forums whenever I can, which of late has meant less support
I was asked in 2012 to join the Forum Council as an administator after some years as a moderator on the forums.
Finding that I spend less time supporting on the forum that I'd prefer, spending longer on back room tasks.
I've been using Xubuntu since 2011, I've spent some time in the Xubuntu IRC channels helping out where possible.
I was part of the 2012 team rewriting the offline docs prior to the release of 12.10.
I was recently asked if I'd like to be the Xubuntu QA Lead, a different use of my time than I am used to, but I hope to bring experience both from my time on the forum and work to bear and look forward to working with the Xubuntu team in a position of responsibility.
