How to Use Ask OpenStack

September 23rd, 2013 — 5:41pm

We’re continuously building together “The best place on the Internet to find answers to common OpenStack problems”: our Question&Answers site Ask OpenStack is such place and needs everybody’s help. Ask OpenStack is a collaborative effort, think of it like a wiki where pages are made only of questions and answers. Anybody with more than 100 karma points can fix a question or an answer and anybody can gain karma points by getting votes on answers and/or questions.

We have collected some suggestions to use for those that ask questions and those that answer in our wiki. The sum of it is:

If you’ve used Ask OpenStack to ask questions or to give answers, please let us know what you think and how you would see it improved in the comments below.


Remember to vote good questions and answers on Ask OpenStack!

Have you visited the forums.openstack.org lately?

A few weeks ago we posted the results of the OpenStack Social Media survey. Thirty percent of survey  respondents indicated that they keep up on OpenStack developments and news on forums.openstack.org. I thought now would be a good time to remind everyone of what a valuable addition the forum is to the OpenStack community, and it has only been up and running since May!

Currently the NOVA board is the most heavily used project board, and admin Jordan Rinke (@JordanRinke) has been especially active in answering  questions regarding installation. Stephen Spector has also been experimenting with using the Events category on the General board to help plan upcoming OpenStack Events like this October’s conference in Boston.  If you have suggestions please feel free to chime in on the forum.

There are currently 85 registered users and I encourage anyone with a question, comment, or insight to complete the easy sign up. The more members and participation the forum sees the more useful it will be!
