Every day, many questions are being asked by Ubuntu users around the world in the sites created for that purpose: AskUbuntu, Launchpad Answers—and recently, the Discourse instance. Today I’m gonna show you how you can easily set up your Launchpad account to get notified about newly asked questions, in your preferred language, so you can answer to users promptly.
- First, go to https://answers.launchpad.net/~/+editlanguages and select your preferred language(s), that is, the languages you speak and will be able to answer in.
- Now, go to https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+answer-contact. Check the “I want to be an answer contact for Ubuntu” box, and click “Continue”.
- That’s it! You’ll receive an e-mail message for every new question being asked in the language(s) you’ve chosen. You don’t even need to visit Launchpad’s website to answer—if you have Gmail, you can answer right away by just replying to the message.
Thanks for your interest, you’re awesome! And remember—you’ll make a user’s life easier, and your Launchpad karma will increase a bunch as a very little reward.
