Updates to "Answers" Section

    I'm happy to announce some exciting new updates to the Answers section of HubPages.  We have listened to your feedback and hope that these changes will improve your experience on the site.

    The first change is that the default view for Answers is now "Hot" instead of "Latest".  This makes the Answers section more like the Hubs section (which also defaults to Hot) and the Hubbers section (which defaults to Best).  Many Hubbers had asked us to highlight quality questions more prominently.  We hope that this change helps with that.

    The second change relates to "Recommended" questions.  Many users have responded favorably to these questions.  In order to streamline your experience on HubPages, we have merged Recommended questions with Hot questions.  If our recommendation system has any questions to recommend to you, they will now appear first in your list of Hot questions.

    We hope that you enjoy these new features!

      LOL!   That photo was actually taken in the office in HubPages on my first day of work, using my iPhone!

        lol it is kinda stark looking. Glad you're not in trouble. Maybe you can get Maddie or Simone to decorate you a little (was thinking festive), shoot you another and use that. Then I shall stop worrying you're lined up for ... something smile

    You needs a good festive Santa hat! And maybe a string of lights or two. What about a set of antlers?

    That's a good change.

    The word “recommended” was too long a word to fit proportionally with other sub-titles there.

    Either way, “recommended” sounded as if you are pushing for something in which case one is bound to ask, what are the benefits that come with it?

    Nice, but what about more restrictions and rules towards what should and shouldn't be there? Why not bring those back, so that the junk is better filtered out?

    I was just thinking - now and then I find answers to questions that I've asked where I've wanted to leave a comment such as 'great answer - and would make an even better hub'.

    Just found one I asked that had a fine answer to it - a bit more work and it would've made a great hub.
