My most successful hubs seem to be about dreams and dreaming. This attracts a lot of requests for dream interpretations. Over the last couple of years I have narrowed myself to answering requests from established gunners only. I seem to only receive requests from those who join after reading my hub and stay, otherwise, inactive. What are your thoughts on how to prevent this?
I have some Hubs that draw a lot of public questions. That's what they do best. I have those few comment capsules set to "everyone," I delete crap and spam ruthlessly and answer the real stuff as best I can.
I would never force people who clearly have such simple (repetitive) questions to join just to get an answer from me.
Sue, Based on you explanation, it seems that you may have your comment capsules set to only allow signed-in users to comment. If this is the case, you are forcing outsiders to join HubPages just to ask you a question.
I agree with relache. It's better to allow anyone to comment. But in order to avoid spam, enable the option to approve comments before they appear on your hubs. This can be done globally from your "comments" > "show settings" page.

I was quite stunned a week or more ago when someone made a statement on one of my hubs that she had commented twice and I had snubbed her by not replying. Her comment had been particularly flattering, and probably because I've spent a lifetime being flattered by others only to find that they wanted...

How do I get my hub score to go up?The score for my hubs range between 55-65. I'm fine with that. However, my pic hub score has dropped all the way down to 1. Yikes! It was in the 12-14 range when I joined a few days ago. So is it normal for a newbie to have a score of...

I know that it is against HP rules for someone to place a link in a comment of a hub, but is it okay for someone to place a link in a comment when answering a question, even if it directs people back to their hub? Also, it seems to be okay to place links in the forums' comments, as the link...
