Today we merged the idea bank with a new feature called "Request a Hub". This gives you the ability to request hubs from your favorite authors, or just ask the community. It also gives authors the ability to have and manage their own "advice column" where users submit questions or problems.
Try it out and tell us what you think.
I'm looking forward to seeing how people use this.
I've already written hubs that deal with some of those subjects... is there a way to link up an already-written hub with a request?
This is a great new feature Paul. I already received one request. It really made me feel good. Thanks for the new feature Paul. How about bringing back "Grow The Pot'? Now its been more than six months and I think it will be interesting to see the contest alive again.
As an insatiably curious person, I love this feature.
SunSeven, hope you enjoy the question I posed to you. If I can return the favor, feel free to request!
Hi livelonger, Thank you very much. You made me feel really good about myself. I hope you got my mail. Regards
Great new "tool". If I may steal a few lines in this thread - I would like to write on many different subjects, I enjoy that, but I fear that it will hurt me in SEO matters (in the long run, or whatever), in traffic matters etc. I think you get me. Can anybody share some opinion on this?
I like this new feature.
I feel the same way about wanting to write on different topics...but don't want it to "hurt me"--so far, I've decided to have two main topics and stick with those.
The way we organize content, it's actually a good thing to write about many topics. Just tag them properly and create high quality information and you'll do well.
Ok Paul. I have answered the request and published the Hub. But 'you have 1 hub request' still remain on the homepage. Do I have to remove it manually? I think it should go away automatically once the requested hub is published.

I know that hubpages really pushes for new hubs to be created, and rightfully so. However, I'm thinking it would be nice to be able to "answer a hub request" with an existing hub.So if someone does a hub...

I may be missing it somewhere but I'd like to see the date when a hub is last edited. If it isn't already out there, it would be really great to have it on the "stats" page after the last column of when...

Sometimes I stumble upon a HubPages request that could be answered by a Hub I've already written... but of course I couldn't submit another such Hub. There should be a way to use a Hub already made in order to answer a...
