The quality of questions here is getting very low. How about letting us rate them so that the really dumb stuff disappears just like the answers?
And perhaps restricting those who persist in posting low quality junk? Harder, perhaps..
That's why the flagging options for questions exists. If a question gets a lot of flags, admin takes a look at it, same as with Hubs.
There are systems in place here that work, but only if site users participate. Notice how many people complain about Hubs, but then turn right around and say they would never, ever flag one.
Well, I do flag hubs and if this is my only option, I'll start flagging questions also.
But ss I said elsewhere, voting seems to at least partially work for answers, why would it not help screen questions?
Yeah. It's like people expect them to be magically dealt with.
All you can do is flag them, HubPages isn't too worried about the low quality questions, at least I don't think they are. If they were, they'd change the section back to the way it was before. Stinks, but oh well...
It's just easier to flag them for screening. Voting doesn't necessarily help screen, at least I wouldn't think.
I'm just tired of the low quality questions, opinion questions (which do you like better), and those related to HubPages. I wish they'd change the rules back to the way it was before where opinion questions, yes/no questions, and questions related to HP weren't allowed.

What is the purpose of the question section? I used to be able to go there and find deep and thought-provoking questions that would stimulate a hub, which usually turn out to be some of my top rated ones. ...

I've noticed that the number of poorly written Hubs is increasing daily. As the site's popularity grows, it's being flooded with Hubs from international users who have very little knowledge of the English language. We...

If we flag a hub, does it say which hubber put in the flag, or is it anonymous. I mean, could someone turn around and flag your hub to retaliate? How does it work exactly? Thanks.

I'm not sure if I have mentioned this before here, so: it would REALLY help if we got feedback on stuff we flag - if only on the stuff that admins decide does NOT warrant action. Many times I have been...
