Can questions be asked directly to a launchpad team?

Asked by Eric Hedekar on 2009-10-13

I'd like to see if there's any easy way in Launchpad for a question to be asked to a specific team.

For instance, when I go to the Ubuntu-Vancouver Launchpad answers page, it claims that there's no questions asked, but if you search for "Vancouver" across all the questions, then it's clear that people are using this word as a tag for questions related to our LoCo members. Can our LoCo easily subscribe to these questions?

Dear Eric,

LaunchPad is a site where people can drop their question; during the days several volunteers are looking to the new posted questions and choose some to answer them.
LaunchPad is not a factory or office where people are sitting and wait for contact.

There are a few manners to enlarge the chance to have a quick answer:
* make your head-line (description) short but sufficient clear
* desribe the problem short, and give enough info to us
* stay friendly (just as you did) to these volunteers

If you find and see a problem that is similar to yours,
you can <Suscribe> to that question:
everything which is entered as answer of explanation to this question is also posted to you.

Hope this answer is what you were looking for.... ;)

Please contact using Launchpad

The administrator member to have informations:

Click on the name you will get member dtail overview
click on top left "Contact this user" link

Hope this helps

I think you can do like this on all Ubuntu team...

Hope this helps

marcobra (Marco Braida): I happen to be one of the admins of Ubuntu Vancouver LoCo's Launchpad page. I'm not interested in asking a question myself, I'm interested in growing the community support in Vancouver by using the Launchpad questions feature.

I'd like to set it so that users can ask a question that includes the keyword Vancouver and our Launchpad LoCo team will get a notification of that question.

Please try this...

Hope this helps

That page really doesn't answer my question, and one of the first things it says is to ask a question (like this).

Yes ask a question to Launchpad

and not on Ubuntu in Launchpad

Good luck and best regards

Can you help with this problem?
