This question already has an answer here:

Moderators closed my question by substantiating that 13.04 exceeded LTS. As much as I know this site has nothing to do with official Ubuntu, how come moderators here mention about exceeding LTS time. If I asked my question in ubuntuforums.org they could put forth reason of LTS to close my question. I want to know if this site has anything to do with official Ubuntu body, if so where can I ask questions related to 13.04?

    It's not an answer, it means that moderators impose their decision over members of askubuntu. It's an antidemocratic decision. Why did you not put to vote your rule? – kenn Feb 23 '14 at 15:23
  • I actually agree with the moderator decision... – Braiam Feb 23 '14 at 15:24

    @Braiam It's your choice not mine. – kenn Feb 23 '14 at 15:26

    BTW, if you are talking about this the ones that closed your question were community members with close votes, no moderators. Also, you should read the question linked so you see the community consensus – Braiam Feb 23 '14 at 15:28

    I already criticize your community consensus – kenn Feb 23 '14 at 15:31
  • Give us a very good reason why we should change at least... – Braiam Feb 23 '14 at 15:37

    I'm using Ubuntu 13.04. Sometimes I need to ask questions about using an application or an error I meet. I don't ask any official bug fixing or application support. I also don't ask any moderator to answer my question. As the name of this site suggests I ask questions about Ubuntu, I haven't read somewhere on this site that only LTS questions can be answered. What about thousands of other users? Where they will ask questions about the problems they meet? – kenn Feb 23 '14 at 16:26

    @fossfreedom :) thank you for invitation. Unfortunately I have a disability that prevents me typing longer. I hope my point gets understood. I hope you all change your decision about closing questions due to LTS criteria – kenn Feb 23 '14 at 16:46

    @kenn - the only criteria is to use a supported version of Ubuntu. At this moment this means 10.04 server/12.04/12.10 & 13.10. 13.04 reached EOL in Jan this year. – fossfreedom Feb 23 '14 at 16:48

    You can find out how this site is related to Ubuntu by clicking 'Ubuntu' at the top left - also this at the bottom of the installation instructions. – Wilf Feb 23 '14 at 16:50

    @fossfreedom - I can understand closing when it is a version specific problem, but if it isn't version specific, should it be closed? (I may ask a question in future about this...) – Wilf Feb 23 '14 at 16:51

    @Wilf - if a question applies to any ubuntu version then this is fine - but remember, to test if the question applies to any ubuntu version you really should be testing on a supported version first ;) – fossfreedom Feb 23 '14 at 16:53
  • Ok, I'm convinced that this site is an official affiliate of Ubuntu, so I respect its policy of LTS. Now that I'm not allowed here to ask questions about Ubuntu 13.04, I ll look for other forums. – kenn Feb 23 '14 at 20:03
