arbitrary regarding the nature of questions? They indicate that questions are not to garner discussions or to be poll type questions. However, a hubber can ask any question and THEY decide what type of question IT IS although the intent was NOT to garner discussion or to poll people. What are THEY thinking
I don't understand the basic concept of "Questions and Answers" on HubPages. Are these pages supposed to be found on search engines? I can't even find a current list of Questions on this site.
See, I always try to ask questions that are going to spark discussion, and I once had a question denied because it was thought it would spark TOO much discussion. From what I gathered from their email, the question and answers are meant to inspire Hubs not so much to gain information.
though one thing I do wish we could do is just set out polls as well as questions without writing a hub. I think that would be fun and an interesting way to gain opinions.
Sometimes i use questions when I genuinely don't know the answer. I find asking people on here I gain a better answer than finding a site related and asking on another forum.
However, honestly, i started asking questions so that people would see my name a lot more. Plus I started having fun answering them. And sometimes, the questions would do as they were intended by the HubMasters - inspired hubs.
I think you get out of the Q and A's what you want to get out of them.
The way I understood the Q&A guidelines is that this part of the site is meant to help inspire ideas for writing hubs. Ergo, that is why every question has the "Make a Hub about it" option. Before I post a question I try to think if what I am asking could at all be of interest to the person who may answer and could inspire them to write a hub giving a more detailed account of their experience or knowledge. I also ask myself if the collective answers I may receive could give me enough information to write a hub on the subject myself.
+ I think this is the thought behind the Q&A section. Some people are misusing the section simply to get views, etc. Some of the questions clearly belong in the forum for a staff member to address.
