My first idea was to wait for the deadline to come and, in case of still having available slots, I'd add my nomination. Stephan prodded me to do it right now, for the sake of democracy. :) So here it goes: I would like to have a chance to a TUG membership for the next year. That said, I'd like to mention a few things. I'd like to have a chance of ...

I'd like to continue to be a member of TUG. Why: My wish to be a member of TUG initiated the institutional membership of Stack Exchange and I would do something to continue. I traveled from Germany to India to the TUG 2011 conference to speak about TeX.SE, and would even go to TUG 2013 in Japan if possible. I like reading the TUGboat, where I published ...

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 ...

I'd like to continue being a member of TUG, because I enjoy reading the TUGboat. The more community reason is: I keep advertising tex.sx on all DANTE and other TeX meetings. I'll publish another LuaTeX article if I keep the membership :) I will vote for new people wishing to be part of the sponsored TUG membership, because I totally agree with Alan Munn.

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 ...

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....

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 ...

Since there aren't 8 nominations in the tray, I'd like to nominate myself for a sponsored TUG membership. I was a TUG member a few years ago, but in recent years I stopped being a TUG member in favor of being a member of the ConTeXt group. I enjoy reading TUGBoat and have contributed semi-regularly in a ConTeXt for Users column. I like the model of TeX.SE, ...

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 ...

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 hereby add an answer nominating myself for one of the TUG memberships. I've certainly appreciated the membership this year, and continue to be fairly active here on the site. But I am also perfectly content to pass my membership on to someone new, as well. In particular, I've added in the comments to the main question a list of names of people who I ...

I would like to nominate myself. I'd love to be a TUG member for a year, and I'd take it as motivation to finally write the TUGboat article on using PGFPlots to create Tufte style scatter plots (a follow-up to the bar chart article on http://latex-community.org/know-how/437-tufte-charts).

I posted this question because I consider to go there, and I'm interested if somebody else would like to attend too. It's a long travel from Germany to Japan for me, so I think a good reason to attend would be making a presentation: Application of pgf/TikZ in Science and Technology Since I'm maintaining TeXample.net with the TikZ Example Gallery, I had ...

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 ...

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 would like to join and be a TUG member. In my country LaTeX is not taken seriously or at least not extensively used. I am struggling introducing it to others and along with a colleague of mine, we are trying to form a group here to promote its use. Unfortunately having a credit card here is expensive with about 17% interest rate so its a luxury to have ...

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

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, ...

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 like to continue to be a TUG member. I'm enjoying reading the TUGboard and would like to write an article for it. I'm also prepard to go to the next TUG conference and represent both TeX.SX and present some of my LaTeX work. Unfortunatly the final stage of my PhD didn't allowed me to I go to the last TUG conference.

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've asked for time off to attend, and, barring disasters, hope to be there. no decision yet on any presentation, but there are some possibly interesting topics that might be considered.

I'd happy to be one of the members representing TeX.SX in the TeX User Group. I'm planning to visit the TUG conference next year if possible and maybe present some of my LaTeX work there. It might also be good to have TeX.SX presented there so the knowledge of it is spread. This would give us a good chance to attract more (La)TeX gurus and explain that we ...

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.
