arbitrary regarding the nature of questions? They indicate that questions are not to garner discussions or to be poll type questions. However, a hubber can ask any question and THEY decide what type of question IT IS although the intent was NOT to garner discussion or to poll people. What are THEY thinking
I don't understand the basic concept of "Questions and Answers" on HubPages. Are these pages supposed to be found on search engines? I can't even find a current list of Questions on this site.
See, I always try to ask questions that are going to spark discussion, and I once had a question denied because it was thought it would spark TOO much discussion. From what I gathered from their email, the question and answers are meant to inspire Hubs not so much to gain information.
though one thing I do wish we could do is just set out polls as well as questions without writing a hub. I think that would be fun and an interesting way to gain opinions.
Sometimes i use questions when I genuinely don't know the answer. I find asking people on here I gain a better answer than finding a site related and asking on another forum.
However, honestly, i started asking questions so that people would see my name a lot more. Plus I started having fun answering them. And sometimes, the questions would do as they were intended by the HubMasters - inspired hubs.
I think you get out of the Q and A's what you want to get out of them.
The way I understood the Q&A guidelines is that this part of the site is meant to help inspire ideas for writing hubs. Ergo, that is why every question has the "Make a Hub about it" option. Before I post a question I try to think if what I am asking could at all be of interest to the person who may answer and could inspire them to write a hub giving a more detailed account of their experience or knowledge. I also ask myself if the collective answers I may receive could give me enough information to write a hub on the subject myself.
+ I think this is the thought behind the Q&A section. Some people are misusing the section simply to get views, etc. Some of the questions clearly belong in the forum for a staff member to address.

Do you believe infidelity is becoming more and more common and accepted?"I've only cheated once". I have heard that one way too many times. Do you think cheating is overlooked nowadays?

When I look at the questions section of hubpages I see pages and pages of silly questions. A lot of the time, when I click on "unanswered" or "latest" I see that the same person has asked ten or so questions in a row. I suspect that in most cases this is because of the fact that...

I have been on HubPages only for two months. I did not think that "Asking & Answering Questions" was a complicated matter.But I have come across a question that if you ask a question and then answer it with your own hub, it is "faking it". My understanding was...

Why are there so many questions that directly violate the rules of asking questions?To be more specific, all of these "personal" questions and such that are suppose to be directed to the forums for polls and votes. Am I misunderstanding the rules, or are they just not being flagged?...
