A question I posted may be almost three days ago have been removed last night by the hubpages team saying that this encourages discussion or conversation rather then answers. There were many answers also there. I did not understand the time taken for the decision to remove it from question answer session. Its confusing. As I lost all the answers posted by hubber friends.
Anybody experiencing the same here?
Why it has been taken so much time to decide after so many answers?
They deal with many readers and since I work in a large organisation, I feel that they have similar problems with the workforce. Again, all organisation have rules as you can appreciate. My spiritual teacher used to make rules which seemed severe, but I would nearly always hear a story a week or two later which suggested that there was good reason for it.
If you are asked to ask questions, then do so. You have much simplicity and a beautiful heart, but you are dealing with a world of logic and a rational as well as ambitious mentality. In any case, from a spiritual standpoint, discipline is essential. I am sure that when you reflect on this, that you will understand and come back stronger. Much love.
Cant thank you more. I was simply confused. Now I can see the big picture
Many thanks again. yeah they may have many problems and we are here to do as they suggest. Its simple. I do agree that discipline is much needed aspect of life and I do prefer a highly disciplined life...Spiritually, mentally, and physically as well. It assures a much peaceful life ahead if we can follow some discipline in life on regular basis. Organizational discipline is another prospect of many faceted growth. I am understanding the aspect and thank you for guiding me through out.
Another hubber friend's question was removed too. HP must be really wanting us to focus on whether the question does encourage back and forth responses in lieu of just answering, and would rather, obviously, us to use the forums to do such. Thanks for letting us know, so we can be mindful as to such. I am sorry your question was removed!!! God bless.
Recently this happened with one of my question too, which was few weeks old. But new hubbers were still responding enthusiastically to it. I loved their responses, but got a notification in the same way as you did. There were more than 20 answers.
That question is no longer published! Looks like this is going to be the rule as regards Q-A section, from now onwards.
Discussions are meant to take place here in the forums. Questions, on the other hand, are meant to generate hub ideas. For example, last year I posted a question about tween birthday party ideas because it was information I'd been searching for. People could answer the question with a suggestion or two, or they could write a whole hub about party ideas.
Thanks for the guidance and sharing your experience with us, Thanks.

I think it would be nice if we could earn money from our questions here on hubpages. Still with the 60/40 split just like on our hubs.The only thing I would think would be people posting too many questions, so maybe implement a cap on questions ie 3-5 per day as long as they are not spammy. ...

What do you think of people who ask a question then use the answers to write a hub?What do you think of people who ask a question (in forums or answer section etc) then use your answers and turn them into a hub? Would it bother you?

The new Feed Facility (that I quite like) means I become aware of loads of really silly questions that new 'hubbers' are asking. Unfortunately I find myself replying with equally silly answers (I know its childish!). There is a facilty to flag questions and I guess that it what I should...

So, I understand that the question-answer section is to inspire hubs, BUT it feels a little disingenuous to use the information everyone provided, especially when that information would fit nicely in a list. I asked a question about recipes and received lots of great replies. How do I make a...
