What We Do

The forums represent many people's first meeting with Ubuntu and is an important resource for support and social interactions and have become one of the most important subprojects within Ubuntu. They are the single largest GNU/Linux support forums and one of the most important venues for community support and interaction. Started independently by Ryan Troy in 2004, their rapid success was officially recognized when they were designated as the Official Ubuntu Forums.

The ForumCouncil has a number of rights and responsibilities, and is ultimately responsible for the smooth operation of the forums. These include:

Ubuntu Encourage all forum members to follow the Forum Code of Conduct, and abide by the Ubuntu Code of Conduct.

Ubuntu Appointing or recalling administrators, super moderators, moderators and forums staff or determining criteria by which they are appointed.

Ubuntu With advice, feedback, and help from the forums staff, maintaining and enforcing the Forums Guidelines and associated infrastructure (e.g., the resolution center).

Ubuntu Review and approve applications for Ubuntu Membership via Contributions to the Ubuntu forums.
