  • funkyHat would be an excellent addition to the Op team in #ubuntu-offtopic. Keeping conversation lighthearted, he is a great help to the channel with or without Op status and I would be excited to see him as an operator. -- anthonyhook 2010-04-12 01:17:31

  • funkyHat would make an excellent op for #ubuntu-offtopic. He's got the sense of humor and easygoing personality necessary to deal with people like me. I wholeheartedly support his application. -- canthus13

  • I think funkyHat aka Matt would make a great OP. He is always helpful and keeps the conversation flowing in -offtopic. He is always helpful and knows the channel rules and the Ubuntu Irc guidelines very well. A BIG (OK) -- idleone

  • funkyHat has the intellect, the knowledge, and the physique to represent #ubuntu-offtopic in a proudful manner. -- jondale

  • funkyHat has shoulders which are wide enough to carry the responsibilities which come with being an #ubuntu-offtopic moderator. -- ikanobori

  • I think funkyHat has well earned an op status, that all that's left to do is grant him the abilities. I thought he was already an op. -- enthdegree

  • funkyHat is exactly the sort of person I would consider an excellent op. Level-headed, good-humored, and responsible. -- ubertaco
