Paulo has given a very good answer in favour of membership: here I'll try to give some additional reasons why I think the membership is a Good Thing. The TeX StackExchange site is currently the most active place for TeX discussion and support in English on the internet. That tells me that both the StackExchange team and the local 'community' on the site are ...

As suggested by Ulrike I put my name on the list. I have been a member of dante for about 10 years and of tex.sx for 2 years. At the moment my main tags are the KOMA-Script ones. While I am answering a question I also use this example to test the beta version of KOMA-Script. I am also active in some German forums like TeXwelt.

I'm honoured to have been hwyaden-nominated by Paulo. I am reluctant to take advantage of this since I have enjoyed the benefit of a subscription this year and think that others should have their turns. However, since barbara has urged me to put my name forward despite this, as there are more spots available than there are nominees. (Though I'm not sure this ...

Let me start with an email I just recently sent to the TUG office. Here is how it goes. Dear Angel, On 01/05/2015 08:53 AM, Angel Zetina wrote: My name is Angel Zetina, a current subscriber of TUG. Thank you kindly :) I was wondering if the office at TUG could give me some insight as to how many Belizean (country of Belize) subscribers there are....

Short answer: yes. Long answer: yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeees. :) Typical TeXnical answer: \ExplSyntaxOn Y \prg_replicate:nn{50}{e} s! \ExplSyntaxOff Personally, I think it's great to have StackExchange as an institutional member of TUG. This community has grown almost exponentially over the years and it's by far one of the best ...

I don't know whether I'm worthy, but the ever friendly Paulo Cereda suggested I put my name down :) I only joined TeX.SX two years ago or so, but I was immediately awed by how friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable the TeX.SX community is. From knowing nothing about Tex & friends, I eventually learned enough, thanks to the community, to put a couple of ...

Yo', Egreg and Johannes B insisted to nominate myself. I am active on TeX.sx for five years, originally to find some help for my first LaTeX package biblatex-iso690, I was hooked since then. I happened to create some packages which are included on CTAN, most notably tex4ebook for TeX to ebook conversion and odsfile, LuaLaTeX package for reading OpenDocument ...

I am submitting my name as the result of a concerted campaign in chat to persuade me to do so. I do not think I deserve to be nominated and so I cannot give any reasons in favour of my nomination. I have only been a member of the site for just over a year. I have learnt a lot and it has been fun. But I only joined because somebody reported that people could ...

I propose my self. I'm LaTeX user since my degree project, long time ago, and I've been actively participating in this site and some other latex-related-lists like Cervantex, comp.text.tex, miktex-users, ... Although I think that it is not my better answer, my most voted answer until now is How to prevent pgfplots from using the 10^n notation for axis ticks ...

Yes, we're still benefiting from our TUG membership. Let's renew!

The TeX.StackExchange site is a bit more than three year old and we have 50K+ questions, which means more than 45 questions a day on average, with 30K+ registered users. The TeX Users Group is the reference for worldwide TeX users and is committed into improving knowledge and software for TeX and related systems. I believe it's in the interest of ...

I'm planning to go. And I'll probably submit a paper. Not traveling by train, like Joseph, but by motorbike, of course. ;-)

As suggested by cfr and encouraged by Christian Hupfer and Paulo Cereda I put my name on the list. First time I use LaTeX about 25 years ago when wrote an article for IEE conference. After than I use it on regular basis for writing articles, presentation, examines, expertise memos and text books. Recently I use TikZ with big joy in (re)drawing all my ...

This statement is made on behalf of the TUG Board of Directors. The entity that is an institutional member of TUG is the private company StackExchange. An institutional membership allows for up to eight delegates from the institution to benefit from the same advantages as individual TUG members. StackExchange has chosen to leave to the community the ...

I will nominate myself for a TUG membership. I am a member of GUST: http://www.gust.org.pl/ and this helps me to understand, how restricted is my TeX knowledge, but in the same time helps to push boundaries. I would like to have access to current TUG articles, but TUG membership is rather expensive for me. Certainly, I can wait, but especially "TeX friends"...


23

Hesitantly I nominate myself. As “justification”, I humbly offer the following: Participation on this site: Apart from being one of the early (2-digit user ID!) enthusiastic users from the “closed beta” days, which I think suggests my enthusiasm for TeX and for this site, over the last year I have spent a fair amount of time answering and commenting on this ...

I have been a member of this site for some four years now and have a strong interest in TeX. I would be honoured to be nominated and I will submit an article to TUG. It will be an honor to be a member of the community.

I will nominate myself for a TUG membership. My active involvement in the TeX community - mainly on TeX.SE - has taught me a great deal. It would be an honour to be granted a membership to TUG as support their goals: To encourage and expand the use of TeX, LaTeX, Metafont and related systems. To ensure the integrity and portability of TeX, LaTeX, Metafont ...

I plan to attend, to put faces to names of many of the wonderful people here on this site (and elsewhere too), and also to learn about new, exciting developments in the world of TeX and Friends! I submitted an abstract with the title: Pretty-printing Git commit history graphs with PGF/TikZ Update: My abstract was accepted by the conference committee and ...

At Alan's heartwarming insistence, I'd like to nominate myself if there are free slots. It seems everyone else has given a little tidbit about why, so here goes: I've almost exploded in my interest of TeX and TeX systems, and I would be excited to see what other people are talking about and doing. I'm not privy to the full benefits of a TUG membership, ...

I'll be going: my first TUG meeting :-) The plan is to talk about the recent work I've been doing on case changing and other things that need Unicode data, so something like Joseph's Adventures in Unicode-land paired with one about the galley entitled Through the \parshape, and what Joseph found there

I'd like to nominate cfr, to ask her to help us to create a tikzducks package.

Guess the answer in my case is going to be yes (might even cycle there) and yes (I plan to give a talk) -- see you there folks

TeX.SX and TUGboat have been invaluable resources for me. To be honest, I feel really welcomed here and even when I have asked several questions, I am glad, that at times, I am able to answer a few here and there. I am learning and similar to my last submission for selection, I am moving forward the TeX voice here in my country, Belize. Currently I am ...

I humbly put myself on the list. I already am a member of dante and would like get the opportunity to help me decide if I pay for a joint membership in the future. (I've been tempted for a while now...) If I get the chance I promise to write the article about chemistry and LaTeX for TUGboat Karl Berry asked me for about two years ago... (I'll probably be ...

If there are free slots I'm putting my name on the list with the same reason as cgnieder: I'm already member of dante and I would like get the opportunity to help me decide if I pay for a joint membership in the future. But I can't promise an article or something like this as I haven't currently the time to write it.
