Re: Calling for a Team-Work :)


Hello my friend and mentor and hope you don't mind to have a young crazy
brother :P

I think I should have been clear from beginning so there you go :)
I'm NOT planning to CHANGE any current scheme or system whatsoever. Why?
because, as you wrote, Roma wasn't built in one day. I just want to "focus"
on something that will give us another plus. Users are sometime complaining
why there is no sub-forum for lubuntu? why the support is so slow? etc etc.
You know these stuff, I'm sure :)
It's not that I want to prove to them how good we are; our actions speak
louder than our words but I just want our team, Lubuntu Team (family) to be
very much capable in everything and one thing specific: being fast. I know
what you'll say about that :D

I have no huge plan, it's a basic one. I'm currently working on:

and of course http://ubuntuforums.org

I have made some friends over Ubuntu Forum (I'm so fast in that by the way
:P) and I have asked them to team up with me and they agreed but as you
know, life issues could make everyone busy and away from Linux and I totally
understand that.
Having that said, I thought to find more people to pop up more on the above
4 websites/pages and support the users. That is preciously why I have
requested to be an admin on Lubuntu and LXDE FB Pages because for me, as a
user, I'd love to see someone from the team is interacting and posting, etc.
That will add more confident to them.

I already started some topics on LXDE Forum which is all about Lubuntu.
Two Guides so far, nothing much but also not bad :)
Two feedback topics
and willing to do more.

I'm SO MUCH happy with what I'm doing and because I'm just a member of this
family, I'd like to share my happiness with ALL of you.

Again, no big plans at the moment.

I'm aware of the tags and prefix. I use that when I do my search. I'm doing
my best to reply Lubuntu Threads on UF as much as possible. I also see some
other people who are not in our team but interested in Lubuntu and they are
helping too.

*Bottom Line:
*All what I'm asking for is: Let's focus our work and be more organized and
that will be done via some teams or even one team.

For example: It's 4am in my time and 3 threads are pending. I could send a
message to someone in the team who is online and he/she can pop up and help.

Phill, I'll definitely follow your instructions and advice and that's why
I'll log off now and go to eat :D

Thank you so much for everything ... I'm so much happy here and I'll be
around for a very long time hopefully :)

Who would give you hard time except me? :P
