When should you post something as a question or in a forum? What is the difference?
thats a great question! I guess if there is no topic for your question in forum, you can always post it on questions!
Post something as a question when you as a questioner would like to have answers only.
In the forum, you as questioner can ask more clarifications and even post your reactions from those who posted their comments and answers. There is a flow of communication here.
I have a hub about this (Forums or Question & Answers - Which factors are affecting choosing one of them?)
I hope it will help.
posting a question has a couple of advantages, you can post it directly to an individual author who will recieve an email from hubpages telling them that you have asked a question.
And posting a question gives the authors a choice they can either answer your question like i am doing here as a short answer or they can create a hub on the question giving them a chance to earn some extra revenue from your question.....jimmy

Hope that helps .
I am not sure of the etiquette totally. I have received notices on questions that they should be in the forum. My take is it may be controversial with more views and opinions than an 'answer.' I tend to stay away from the forum, since I don't feel I can give enough time to be a participant. However, that is a poor attitude if it is a good forum question and one is seeking counsel through others views on a subject.
Forums seem more for questions you need answers to whereas the questions ask just on hubpages are a lot of meaningless philosophic questions.

This is always a mystery for me. Why does HubPages offer both a Question and a Forum when the two are interchageable for the most part? The Question also have a limitation of 250 char. For followup responses, not enough...

I recently asked a question about an old button I found, and one of the people who responded to my question asked some questions about it and said that it was hard to tell much from the picture (but, since I was asking...

When a question is not answered here, can you ask the same question in the forum?

When you post questions, do you hope to get long or short answers?
