ask.openLCA is a question-and-answer (Q&A) website on Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) ...
... and also the official support platform for openLCA, openLCA nexus and the LCA Collaboration Server.
Still, we invite everyone who works with Life Cycle Assessment to contribute questions, answers and comments ... regardless of whether they relate specifically to openLCA or not!
Ask a question ... get an answer
Ask a question and get a straightforward answer ... this platform is not a discussion forum. Improve your questions and answes as you go along. Use comments only for clarification. Vote good answer up so that they will be listed first.
The user who asked the question selects an answer as the best answer. This does not necessarily mean the other answers do not work!
Comments are meant for clarification ... not for new questions
Use comments only for clarifications ... not for new questions!
Good questions get good answers
When asking a question, focus on your real problem and provide details (e.g. log files, screenshots, etc.). The user who answers your question must be able to understand and possibly reproduce your problem.
Has your question been asked before?
The 'Ask a question' page will help you to find out ...
Tagging helps fellow users to find your question and also to understand it ... this also improves the quality of answers!
Don't ruin your reputation!
Your reputation increases with positive votes from fellow users. With an increasing reputation you may receive additional user rights such as access to moderation tools. If you repeatedly ask unspecific question or lose focus, fellow users may downvote your posts and with this your reputation.
