Hub request removed and not sure why

    I made a hub request and in all honesty I cannot figure out why.  I read through the TOS and the rules on submitting a request and I still can't figure out. The request was "What is your opinion of XXXX TV show...do you like it or not?"  (I named the TV show). Was it because I named the show? 

    It was removed an hour later. 

    Thanks in advance.

    It was because you asked an opinion question.  When you make a request, the page with the form reads,

      Thank you. That helps me out a lot.  I do have a question. Do you think it would have been acceptable to have asked "What do you think about the TV show XXX?"

      I was looking around in the requests and see several that ask "What do you think about religion?" and other forms of requests posed in that type of format.  Thanks.

    To me, that still sounds like an opinion question, and most likely the Hub made to answer it would be marked as "low quality."  I would think that there are lots of places on the internet to find people's opinions about whatever tv show you are curious about.

    I wrote a Hub on Giving Great Answers To Hub Requests that talks about how to pick a good question so that it can be answered well and provide a Hub that's informational and useful for a long time.  Maybe reading that will give you a better idea of how to make a good Request.
