I asked for a review of a movie and they give me a synopsis. Thing is the answer that they gave me looks like a copy/paste job from somewhere and I'm not too satisfied.
I've seen hub requests answered with one or two sentences and it doesn't look good and I wonder why people even bother.
The thing is though that the request that I gave was also carefully researched. I found that there were lots of searches on Google Trends for "Saw 4 Movie Review" and there were very few pages. The person who had a great Saw 4 movie review lens would have gotten #1 easily and a lot of visitors and made a good bit off adsense.
Also they would have a good lens for when the dvd came out and could use an amazon module to promote it.
Sorry if I sound like an azzwhole but I wasn't too pleased with the answer to my hub request.
Maybe if there was a function that allowed the requester to vote on the article so their opinion carries a heavy weight would be a good idea.
Thats actually a great idea cause I don't like to see these nearly empty hubs or hubs that don't even give you what you're looking for.
I think thats a brilliant idea though... although I could just rant in their comment box or give them a thumbs down or flag them as a last resort. I actually don't like doing any of these things.
I think voting would be a good idea. I'm also wondering if there needs to be some kind of vetting of the requests themselves.
Some of the requests are quite silly and there's no way anyone could construct a serious Hub as an answer. Unfortunately, there's always someone prepared to jump in and write something half-baked. The people that do that obviously don't understand how HP works and thinks that just be answering, they're going to get paid.
KPFingaz, I saw it last week, it was...interesting. I was going to write a hub about how to understand the plot twists and ending for Saw IV, but I don't know that it would be a review per se, more of a guide for those who have already seen it. If you haven't already, you should check it out. But you might be disappointed; a lot of people were. They used new writers for this one than they did for the first three, and it clearly shows.
No I did not see it. I can't watch movies like Saw because I get really scared.

I know that hubpages really pushes for new hubs to be created, and rightfully so. However, I'm thinking it would be nice to be able to "answer a hub request" with an existing hub.So if someone does a hub request for something I've written on (revver videos, for example), I can simply...

Sometimes I stumble upon a HubPages request that could be answered by a Hub I've already written... but of course I couldn't submit another such Hub. There should be a way to use a Hub already made in order to answer a request.

I know answering requests improves scores but answering our own request does it also improve or on the contrary does it decrease the score(and also does it go against the convention here at hubpages)?I am asking this question for this particular request and also for a couple of other requests I...

Can you answer your own requests? When you make a request, it immediately brings you to a screen with the prominently featured red button that says "answer this request". It feels like abuse to make a request and answer it yourself, so I'm not doing it. But I feel like...

Go look at the Q&A section (used to be Request a Hub)More than half the questions are technical or advice about Hubpages type questions. People aren't getting that it's not supposed to a help type question.I also thought it was a FAQ or help type question and was getting frustrated...

I've had a few requests closed for me, yet again. I'm getting kind of discouraged with making requests. I thought requests are there for people to answer. How can they answer them if that anti-request bot automatically closes them? Just wondering.ProCW
