A few weeks ago I noticed for the first time that the Requests feature on Hubpages was renamed "Answers". I wondered if it was just a matter of "new label, old feature". I'm pretty sure now it's not. "Requests" used to be a way to get another Hubber to write a complete hub on a topic of your choosing. I got some pretty good answers to some questions I'd been wondering about that way.
Now, I recently posted a request ... well, a "question" about the economic reasons behind the rise of High Fructose Corn Syrup. I got an answer -- and it was only a paragraph long. There were no capsules. There was no place to comment. There was just a "vote up" or "vote down" feature. I voted up, because in a single paragraph, the answer was good. But... I was hoping for a whole in-depth hub!

I don't know exactly but I guess that request feature at hubpages is for creation of some valuable pages. Many requests need only one or two sentence replies. However there is no provision to answer such requests without creating a complete hub and for this one has to expand the topic unnecessary....

I just went onto the Request page, and now there is a sorting option for Unanswered requests. I love it! I just had to say that!

For those of us who write mathematical, DIY, engineering, recipe, craft hubs etc, it would be really useful. The user would be able to enter values into labeled boxes and click a button to do the calculation. Something basic would suffice. It would need to be able to handle maybe 3 independent...
