Questions that inspire hubs...

    I noticed I have an accolade that says my questions have inspired the writing of 50 hubs.  Do we get to see the hubs we inspired?  Am I missing something that I could click on to see the hubs? Maybe it would be hubs and/or hubbers I would like to follow or hubbers who would like to follow me.

    You can go to your "my account", look under activity and see the questions you have asked.

    No. Your questions have inspired 50 "answers", not "hubs".

      Thank you, Mdlawyer.  I did read it wrong.  Some of the questions are inspiring, and the question section does have a place to click to write a hub.  I thought I would really like to read what people wrote.  Thanks, again! :-)

    That is something Hubpages need to change, it is actually the number of questions that you have asked and has nothing to do with inspiring anyone.. leave alone writing hubs.. smile

    Welcome to Hubpages smile

    Previously it was the number of questions asked. Now it seems the number of answers to the questions is counted.

    Accolades are meaningless. They are only for an ego boost and serve no other purpose. So, who cares. lol

        Cagsil and Sofs, I thought it was a legitimate question at the time.  Mistakenly, I thought it said "hubs," not "answers."  I would care a lot if someone wrote a hub based on one of my questions, and I would want to go support that person. 

        Laugh's on me.

    Sholland .. your question is perfectly valid...in fact I had the same doubts when I was new here.. but what Cagsil is saying is ,.. the accolades actually don't really matter when it comes to your hubs  earning money and I think so too now smile 
    I guess they really help you gain more confidence if you are a new writer smile
    I don't think we were laughing at you.. it was about how perceptions change smile

      My main point was if I could find out how to find the hubs my questions might have inspired.  I admit I read the accolade wrong, but a few days ago I received this e-mail, "Your recent question "Do you feel more loyal to your friends than they are to you?" has been removed because it encouraged a discussion rather than a Hub or short answer. Surveys and poll-type questions do not belong in the Q&A section. To engage in a discussion or conversation, please post in the Forums section at http://hubpages.com/forum/, or for private conversation you can contact another Hubber directly from their profile page."

      Your comments made me feel like I was looking for an ego boost and a gold star when I was only asking for help.

        Visit the link I left you. It should bring you to the questions you have asked. You can then check the number of answers given to your questions and find out if anyone wrote a hub with regards to your question and then you could support those who did.

        Just a thought. smile

          Thanks, Gagsil.  I have done that all along.  It was my mistaken reading of the accolade that caused me to wonder about questions inspiring hubs.  Combined with that and reading a little too much into the message I received, I came to the wrong conclusion.

          Take Care smile

              No, no, don't misunderstand.  You, Sofs, and Mdlawyer cleared it up for me on the questions.   

              Thanks to all of you! smile
