    http://blog.hubpages.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/know_it_all_blog.png
    Hello everyone! As of this afternoon, you are free to begin publishing Hub Answers as submissions in the HubPages Know it All Contest.

    Before you do anything contest related, though, we encourage you to read through our official contest page (including the rules).

    Winners will be posted in this closed thread.

    Also keep in mind that:
    *Contest start and stop times adhere to Pacific Time
    *Winners for Saturdays and Sundays will be announced on Mondays
    *You must be enrolled in the HubPages Earnings Program to receive prize money
    *Hub Answers to Weekly Topic Inspiration Questions count as contest entries
    *Hub Answers to Questions that have been removed can still win, but the Questions will not receive prizes (and your chances of winning a non-random prize are probably lower- typically because Hubs answering Questions that end up getting moderated don't do to well when held up to our judging criteria)

    If you have any additional questions, feel free to ask them in this thread!

    Please, though- don't share links to your entries. You can share your submissions in this thread. wink

      Is the exact question put it the begiining of the hub? When you pick a question, do you merely check answer without an answer and then click make a hub?

      1. Simone Smith profile image91
        Simone Smithposted 4 years ago in reply to this

        You don't have to re-phrase the Question at the beginning of the Hub. You just have to create a good Hub that answers it. smile

        You'll know you're creating a Hub as an Answer to a Question when you see this blue notification at the top of the Create a Hub page that you go to when you click "make a Hub" to answer that Question.

          Simone, It seems as if that blue line disappears after working on a hub.  Is there another way we can be sure the hub we produced is entered in the contest? It's a little disconcerting thinking that a hub we wrote for the contest, might not actually be entered IN the contest (not that the work would be in vain...still...) Would posting our contest hub in the thread help to insure its entry? I apologize if I missed this information. Cheers!

    Hi, Simone

    Can I just clarify one small point? I understand the reference to questions which have been moderated (for obvious reasons) but is there any time limit on this as to when the question was asked?

    In simple terms, if I were to find an excellent question still published on the site from a year ago (purely as an example) and produced a Hub as an answer, would it still count in the contest?

    Thanks!

    1. Simone Smith profile image91
      Simone Smithposted 4 years ago in reply to this

      Absolutely, Gordon Hamilton! The question can be as old as you like big_smile

    Peggy Wposted 4 years ago

    I am assuming the answer to Gordon Hamilton's question is "yes" as that is what I have been doing.  I was going back to add links to the person's name that asked the question and noticed two that are apparently no longer with HubPages.  Since their questions were still there, I am hoping that my answers still count. hmm

    1. oceansnsunsets profile image89
      oceansnsunsetsposted 4 years ago in reply to this

      Hi Peggy, I am assuming the answer is yes also to Gordon's question, as the question is still out there, able to be answered.  I think all questions, no matter how old they are, if out there on the questions part of HubPages will still count for a contest entry when answered with a hub.

    This is a big question for me!!!!3

    Is there a way to enter a contest hub WITHOUT going the the "make a hub about this, then redoing the whole hub creation process?"

    What I mean is, when I click to answer a question, then comes the option to make a hub about it, then comes the create a hub sequence...

    uh oh!!!!

    My problem is that my answer hubs are already created in draft form, complete with tons of varied capsules and specific formats - I'm not talking about a 30 minute effort type hub

    Following the listed sequence - it seems the only option is to recreate the hub through the answer option - then cut and paste everything from the completed draft into the new required answer hub

    then I wonder if I will need to create new title URL's since my first choice is already used for a draft hub.

    Help! Is there a way to enter a contest hub without this cut and paste process? I have several drafts that were just waiting for the contest to start.

    2. Simone Smith profile image91
      Simone Smithposted 4 years ago in reply to this

      I'm afraid, GA, that the only Hubs that will be counted as contest entries are those which are created as Answers to Questions.

      And you will not need to add any special tags, radhikasree.

        I've had similar questions about this process when you are directed to post the answer, even though you have prepared and created  the response in another form or already on another Hubpages.

        See the many idiosyncrasies we come across

    The thing about asking questions though, is that it has to be an interesting question that you do not want to write a hub about? I keep thinking up questions and then want to write the article myself sad

    1. Simone Smith profile image91
      Simone Smithposted 4 years ago in reply to this

      Yeah, so it goes, I suppose!  hmm
      I recommend that you save those for future Hubs and ask things you wouldn't be able to answer (that are still detail-oriented and interesting) for the contest.

    I agree with what many others are saying about wanting a place where the entries are listed.  Or as an alternative, it would really help us writers to have some sort of confirmation that our own entries have been successfully submitted into the contest.

    The status of all my HubPages Earnings Program Settings is listed as "Active" except the eBay Program, that reads "Application Pending" . . . I'm waiting for a confirmation from them - if that never happens, if my eBay Program status never gets to "Active" does that make me ineligible for the contest?

    I am enrolled in the Hubpages Ad program, but I do not have it listed as active, since I have done better with Adsense Ads turned on. Do I have to make my HP Ads "active" to be eligible or will I still be eligible to win prizes since I am already enrolled?

    raising my hand, I have a question~

    After reading the official rules, I see there is prize $ for the questions that produce a winning answer hub. How does that work if someone chooses to answer a HubMob weekly question, since HP asked the question; and that answer hub wins?

    Is it better to answer questions from other hubbers?

    It does sound fun, I think I'll find a good question.

        rebekahELLEposted 4 years ago in reply to this

        I guess I'm just thinking it might be better to answer a question posted by a hubber which also gives them a chance to win $ if their question produces a winning answer hub.  Thanks for answering.

    2. Can I answer a question that is 3 months old?
    Or I have to answer a question posted only after the 1st of March?

    I have another question. I read the official rules and didn't see anything, but perhaps it's been posted somewhere.

    Can family members (not living together) ask and answer the same question? If I ask a question, can someone in my family answer the question for the contest? 

    Just wondering.

    1. Simone Smith profile image91
      Simone Smithposted 4 years ago in reply to this

      You technically can- the only thing we disallow is people asking and answering their own questions (e.g. through separate accounts).

      Though keep in mind that the spirit of the contest focuses on answering real Questions people ask. If, say, you want to ask a family member to write a Hub on something you really want advice on, that's perfect! If, however, you have an idea for a Hub you want to write as an entry in the contest and ask someone you know to ask that Question... it's technically OK, but it's not the point of the contest, hehehe ^_^;;

    Simone, Would a hub be eligible for the contest if it answered a subset of the question.  If, for example, someone asked how to publish a brochure and didn't specify which type, could the title of the hub that answers this question be:  "How to Publish an E-brochure"?  I'm assuming the hub would need to state briefly the difference between the two, why the e-brochure might be a choice, and then how to do it.  Or would this be considered not answering the question accurately?  Thank you so much for your time!

The extent to which a Hub adequately answers the original Question is definitely taken into account during the judging process, but a more specific Answer to a broad Question could certainly still be viewed as having addressed the Question well- especially if you share reasons why publishing e-brochures is preferable.

    Just a note to Simone. I only just noticed that on the Know it All contest rules it states:

    '$1400 in $50 Daily Drawing Prizes awarded to a randomly selected Hub Answer from the entries submitted each day of the contest

        $280 in $10 Daily Drawing Prizes awarded to each Question that the Daily Drawing Hubs Answer"

    I don't get the maths on this as the competition began on the 1st of March and finishes on the 30th March. Surely this is 30 days, so 30 entries and 30 questions. Shouldn't the figures be  $1500 and $300 or am I missing something??

      Hey mistyhorizon2003!
      The contest runs for 28 days, actually. The final deadline on the 30th (at noon) is actually the overlap for completion of the final contest day (for which entries are first accepted at 12:00pm on the 28th). The timing looks weird because our deadlines happen in the middle of the day instead of at midnight.

    Congrats everyone and what an amazing contest. I have turned into a ? asking junkie!!!!
    With that being said I have a question Does it matter when the question was written as to my answering and writing a hub about it. I mean what if I answer/hub a question that was written last week can I still enter it in the contest or does it have to be written that day? I looked at the rules but didn't see a time limit. 

    Thanks everyone for absolutely incredible hubs and ?s

    1. lobobrandon profile image81
      lobobrandonposted 4 years ago in reply to this

      Even if the question was written years ago you can enter the contest. Just that the hub has to be new. It's mentioned in the rules btw
