I've been less active on Hubpages in the past month, and I just now noticed that the category "resquests' has disappeared and seems to have been supplanted by another category called "answers". How did this come about, and is there more to it than just a name change?
I have been wondering about this too.
Also, how do we access the Unanswered Idea Bank?
Aya, where you see "answers" you will see that in smaller letters there is "view questions", which you can click on. That's instead of the old requests. You can select whether you want to just add a shorter answer or write a Hub.
Ivorwen, If you click on "view questions" you'll get to the page where the ideabank is over to your right-hand side.
Thanks for the info, Lisa. I'm still wondering if it is just a change in nomenclature, or whether the idea behind "requests" has changed. If the category is requests, then it seems acceptable to write requests in an imperative form, as in: "Write a hub about Ghengis Khan." But if the category is questions (or answers to questions), do you have to have it phrased more specifically, such as: "What were the most important contributions to world history by Ghengis Khan?"

Is there a way to reorganize the answers section for better and easier use? It's not the most user friendly?I can't seem to figure out the new one, especially when looking for new requests. I used the lastest feature, but it didn't give me any new questions that I saw in my hubtivity.

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...

In the past, HubPages has changed the terminology for things. I'd like to suggest another change for the next upgrade:1. Change "followers" to "subscribers"(thanks to Ryankett for this one). This might reduce the amount of spammy followers or the annoying...
