    I have one hub in particular where a poll after comments from guest users could really up the traffic.  I think guest users would find it fun to echo off each others responses.

      In the early days of HubPages, comments didn't have to be put at the end of a Hub.  A few years ago, we made the decision to follow standard online formats and have the comments at the end.  I think there's the rare case, in your example, where it might work to have a Comment Capsule not at the very bottom, but most of the time it is not a good format.  Most readers, when they see the comments, believe the article is finished.  Hubs that have a lot of comments were really hurt by having the comments interspersed throughout the Hub; readers were leaving their Hubs early and unsatisfied.  Perhaps you could leave a note in your Hub to have your readers read the comments before they respond to the poll.

        There are Hubs that do have content below the Comments.  Are they just old ones that the HP system hasn't reformatted?

          Yes.  There are some older Hubs where the Comments Capsule is not at the end. While we think that our site-wide changes improve the Hub, we do our best to not change the layouts of previously published Hubs without authors knowing. Thanks!  smile

    Thank you Robin.  Your explanation makes sense. And I like your idea about directing the reader to the comments before taking the poll.
