Ask Ubuntu update for May 2012

This month has been fantastic for Ask Ubuntu. With the 12.04 released just a month ago, Ask Ubuntu has been pretty active for the past couple of weeks. There has been a large influx of new users trying to get their questions answered and considerable number of users joining Ask Ubuntu to help out stranded users as well.

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

50,000 questions!
Earlier today, we just reached yet another milestone of 50,000 questions. With almost 55,000 registered users, Ask Ubuntu has been growing from strength to strength since it was launched in October 2010.

Deeper integration with the IRC community
With plans to get Ask Ubuntu integrated with the rest of the community, preliminary steps towards that have already been kickstarted. Community member Amith KK has implemented a preliminary bot setup that posts links to the questions that have specific tags. His bot twobottux is currently serving #ubuntu-community-team, #juju and #application-development. If you are interested in having this bot in your room, please do let us know.

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

In case you are struck and is looking for help on how to use the site, feel free to ask your doubts on the Ask Ubuntu meta or join us in the chat*.
