@karthick87 Yes, but why do you want to become a moderator? What would change for you?

@Private That's what we have the primaries for ;)

@Manishearth Oh, fully aware of that. I was just playing along with this ridiculous nonsense.

@EvanCarroll Ah, that is great, indeed. Now, if I may ask, how do you define "honesty" when you go out calling "CORRUPTION!" without anything to back it up? This seems like a defamation rather than honesty.

@EvanCarroll As you are obviously unaware of the Code of Conduct (the nomination instructions, therefore) and thus seem quite uninvolved with the Ubuntu community at large - What do you have to offer to the Ask Ubuntu community, that any of the people who magically managed to find and sign the CoC before nominating themselves do not?

comment How could I mount an ext4 partition and have write permission?
Wonderful. Please do include the source link, though, as it may have further information. In fact, try to always include the material you used to come to the answer. :)

comment How could I mount an ext4 partition and have write permission?
Whilst this may theoretically answer the question, it would be preferable to include the essential parts of the answer here, and provide the link for reference.

Well then - What - or who - did you mean?

How much do I know about the philosophy behind closing? What with me helping with our Cleanup, lurking the Regulators Room and having a helpful flag per day with "only" 1k rep and a couple of months here, and active Meta participation, I'd say "quite much, but refinable". (From the chat)

What would I do about an improvable and closeable question? I would prefer to improve it alongside closing it, so the resulting answer is viable for a Q&A format - after all, the issue should still be described in the best manner possible, when found. I've often suggested edits alongside flagging in the review queue (sometimes it's just not doable on the spot), and I find this the most beneficial in the long run, even if it takes a little more effort when dealing with a post. (From the chat)

You might want to elaborate on it a bit, rather than just linking to it - What does it do, how does it work, how to use it?

Well then, the obligatory questions: What would you do, if you were to become moderator, and why do you want to become a moderator to begin with?

@Alenanno This and this should help. It 'lays out the "ground rules" for cooperation within the Ubuntu community' and as such is pretty much our philosophy to live by. :)

If it's too fast to read, get a camera and catch it in-action. ;)

comment How to change my background?
Are you sure you're running 12.10? There is no reason for 12.10 to read 13.04 ever, and if you are running 13.04, this may well be a bug related to Ubuntu+1, which is inappropriate here.

What would I do when questioned? I find it hard to determine how I would act depending on if I was right or wrong - this assumes knowing the "truth" to begin with, which pretty much boils it down to "admit and accept that I'm wrong, apologize/solve if necessary" or "point out precisely why I'm right". But on the way to finding out whether or not I am right, when questioned, I would try to collectively research - with the person questioning my actions - and conclude when the case is made.

Well, if you "can continue the same way", as you say - what will you be able to do as a moderator that you currently are unable to do as a regular user?
