Plans:

  • I want to continue contributing both as a moderator at the Greek Ubuntu Community forum (http://forum.ubuntu-gr.org/index.php) and as a translator in launchpad.

  • I plan to become more active in the local Ioannina Linux User Group (ILUG)

Self-remarks: I have been introduced to ubuntu by a friend after much arguing. I started with 7.10 and a year later I got seriously involved in the Greek Community forum, where I eventually (2010) became a moderator. In 2009 I got involved in translations in launchpad. I strive to help out members with problems as much as I can.

  • I am Simos Xenitellis (Ubuntu Member). I have known Elias for the last three years as a co-moderator at the Ubuntu-gr forum. He is one of the star contributors of the forum that manages to create a friendly environment for newcomers to ask questions and get quality support. The forum is approaching 8,000 members and his continued work is much needed. He helped during our recent translation marathon, and we achieved 97% translation completeness for Ubuntu 11.04. simosx
