Ask Ubuntu update for June 2012

After the 12.04 release madness, the site’s traffic has gone down a bit. Nonetheless, we are still getting a considerable number of quality questions and answers every day. Lots of things are happening behind the scenes in Ask Ubuntu. Of which the following are noteworthy :)

Hottest questions
Some of the hottest questions for the month of June:

Ask Ubuntu on Twitter
Most regular users of Ask Ubuntu would have already known that Ask Ubuntu is on Twitter. Until recently, this account was using the handle @stackubuntu. Now that we have the Twitter handle @askubuntu, Ask Ubuntu account on Twitter has been renamed to @askubuntu. This Twitter account tweets interesting questions and answers, questions that are bountied and important community discussions. So, if you are on Twitter, please do follow @askubuntu and keep yourselves up to date with the interesting content in our site.

Ubuntu Accomplishments System
Ask Ubuntu badges are now available as opportunities in Ubuntu Accomplishments system. Work has been put in to sufficiently document several of the badges but we still have considerable number of badges to be documented. If you are interested in documenting them, check the list of badges that are already completed and finish off those that are not.


If you are looking to help, the featured questions should be a good place to start. If you are interested in the site, you can sign up for the newsletter and you will be kept informed of quality questions and answers every week.
