Why can't I respond more than once to the people that respond to a question I posed?
I asked a question and people responded in a way I wanted to acknowledge. I responded once and when I tried to respond again I was not allowed! Ugh! I want to interact with the hubbers that answer the question and I can't. Am I doing something wrong? Is there a way around this?
There are only two ways and two times you can respond to any question. One is to give a short answer as I am giving now. The other is to create a hub on the subject. This is true regardless of whether you created the question or, like myself, you are responding to someone else's question.
If you do not feel like creating a complete hub on how these people have helped you, there is another way to contact them-individually one by one. Click on their name to get to their profile page. If they have have the option of contacting them by email, click on that option. some people don't want you cantacting them and have this option turned off. In that case, I would leave a comment on their latest hubs about how much you appreciate their help. It won't matter that the comment is not related to the hub. You can say in the comment that you couldn't contact them any other way. I have contacted people both ways who have helped me.
It is annoying isn't it?! But @FloraBeenRobison is spot on. I've often wanted to thank people for their responses, but feel contacting them directly somewhat over the top.
Perhaps one day we'll be able to just hit a reply and send a quick message. But not just yet!
You can only answer each question once. It's annoying but that's the way it is. There's no way around it. If you want to have a back and fourth discussion with people, post in the Forum.
I was wondering about this myself. Thanks FloraBreenRobison for clarifying this. Another option perdn44 if you want more interaction to your query is to post it in a forum instead of a question.
Thanks for the responses. Here is my one allowable short answer. Lol. I think using the forum is a good idea..perhaps writing a hub if it seems to be of enough interest to people.

Do you think it is important to add follow-up comments when people answer your questions?When I answer a question or leave a comment on someone's hub, I appreciate some awknowledgement. I feel surprised (and a bit...

I tried to post this in the answers section-where I think the question should be-but I kept being told the question had already been asked by someone else-not true-and I couldn't post it. This is directed only to...

I'm sure there are many reasons for and against responding to comments left by your readers. What do you think?

I got a spammy comment (one of those spellcaster advertisements) on one of my hubs and even though I keep hitting "deny" the comment is still on it. Is there a special trick to denying comments or is...

I can't post a comment on my own page.

Why can't I respond more than once to a question? Sometimes I would like to thank someone for ...their answer. Or I would like to ask for clarification to a question answered and then be able to help with the answer...
