Could not find an answer in TOS or FAQ or any other sets of initials. Thanks
Darn! Wish I had seen this just seconds earlier. It answers my question on the very came thing, but can you take down your request?
Actually, it's considered sort of tacky to make a request and then answer it yourself.
After all, if you want to make the Hub, just go ahead and make it.
I see your point, but if you've made a request and there doesn't seem to be any bites then it's still open. I think I'd rather be tacky then left hanging.
** I see that it was answered, so I saved myself from tacky and I'm not left hanging, but I am feeling stupid...lol
If you know enough to write the answer, why did you ask the question, I wonder?
I'm still a bit bemused as to what benefit requester gets from making a request - other than the warm fuzzy feeling that they've given other Hubbers some inspiration?
I haven't made any requests, but for me I would like to see another humorous view on a topic now and then. A reason to answer your own request would be: You have a question about a topic, then later you find the answer to that topic. I can see that being a good reason to answer your own request. But then again i am tacky. .. and antagonistic.
I don't think it is tacky at all. You might get some ideas to build on. Not saying you should copy someone else's hub, but you could get a spark of an idea. It would be a learning process.
But someone said it was tacky so I probably won't do it.
I'm all with the tacky part. But if no one was answering the question and I had gotten some info on what I was asking, then I would remove the request, which you can do, and then write my hub, not linking it to my request, which I would have removed.
Now, it could be that someone already has written a hub on a topic and requests that topic because they are curious to see other sides or another's view of the topic. But in that case they wouldn't be answering their request, they should write it separately.

Do you think it is tacky to post a link to your hub in a comment you leave for someone else?I can not bring myself to leave a link to one of my hubs in a comment I write to other people. I see that others do and I am curious what the general reaction is to that. I am not saying it is good or bad......

What motivates you to answer questions on HubPages?

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...

Why are there so many questions here concerning Christian(or belief in God) vs Atheism?Is this the best platform for discussing these issues and are people really interested in the answers, or is religion vs non-religion just a controversial topic that will attract lots of debate and generate money...

Last week, I heard from Denise Handlon, who shared an excellent Weekly Topic Inspiration idea. In her message to me, Denise shared how inspiration struck:“I was standing at baggage claim Monday afternoon, following my visit to see family in Michigan, including Cara-cardelean. My thoughts began to...

For this week's HubMob, I have decided to cover a topic that is truly close to many people's hearts - their pets. I have never really been a pet owner, but as I meet more and more people I realize the huge role that they play in the lives of others around me. So, this HubMob is basically a way for...
