Vote now for an awesome new Ubuntu help platform

imageSpend a minute today to help make the lives of yourself, other Ubuntu users and even the dear developers who toil so hardy over code that little bit easier by voting up a proposal for a new Ubuntu-orientated ‘Stack Overflow’-esque site.

“Stack… what?”

Wikipedia sums it up neatly: -

“Stack Overflow is a website featuring questions and answers on a wide range of topics in computer programming. Users are able to ask and answer questions, and, through membership and active participation, to vote questions and answers up or down and edit questions and answers in a wiki fashion.”

Replace ‘computer programming’ with ‘Ubuntu questions’ and you’re pretty much there.

The Ubuntu-specific resource will allow users of all skills the ability to ‘to ask questions of one another in order to share ideas, solutions…” and, through the use of tags, search and voting etc build up a high quality resource for users to refer to/be referred to when in need.

Ubuntu Stack Exchange

Currently the proposal for this Ubuntu-knowledge pool is sat in ‘Area 51′ – Stack Exchange’s so-called ‘staging zone’. Here proposals for new Q&A sites are mooted, designed and voted into existence.

How to help? To plagiarise the words of Iain Farrell: -

1. Visit the Ubuntu proposal page on stackexchange.
2. Register and vote for this proposal.

Because this idea is so awesome I’m going to repeat it for you one more time: -

1. Visit the Ubuntu proposal page on stackexchange.
2. Register and vote for this proposal.

Once you’re done don’t forget to spread the word. This has the potential to be a fantastic resource platform for users and developers a like.
