Why do some of my questions get deleted saying it caused a discussion?
may be your question suppose to be submited in the forums, unfornately I don't know what kind of question that you have submit. so I can not answer any further. See hubpages regulation for question/answer.
I know, it's frustrating! But try to look at it like this; ask a question that will have one or more direct answers, and that do not call for opinions. For opinions or even discussions, use the Forum format, and than you and other interested parties can have unlimited back-and-forth conversations, that honesty, can evolve into some great experiences.
Most of mine are being deleted. There is no proper logic behind it and people leave Hubpages because of this. I think the people who do this are fundamentalists.
I recently had one or two of my questions deleted. I was asking how much on average people paid for cosmetics in a month. I wanted the information for a hub that I was planning to write. The question was deleted because it was causing a discussion. I am not sure what type of questions are allowed - time for me to read up about it in the Learning Center I think.
Hi and welcome to the club! I think this is one of the mysteries of Hub Pages - my arguments is, that there are very few questions that don't create discussion and if you do answer 'yes' or 'no' then your answer is not accepted because it's 'too short'? In otherwords they want you to go on and 'discuss' your answer in more detail????
I gave up in the end and if my question is deleated I just move it onto the forum. If I'm not sure about a question then I just stick it in the forum.
I agree with Seeker7. There is no rhyme or reason it seems. I have asked a yes or no question and a this one or that one question and it has been deleted. You really can't predict when a question will provoke a debate.
So if it is deleted turn around and put your question in a forum. Or just start out with a forum anyway. Personally I like forums better anyway because you can answer multiple times.
I have no any justification because it's happened with me yesterday. I wrote but i do not know ,where my question is ?

Why are some of my questions being deleted?I few of my questions have been deleted, and I want to figure out what I've been doing wrong so that no more of them get deleted.

Why do some people ask a question then delete the answers they don't like?A number of times I've gone back to look at an answer I gave and the questioner has deleted it. Do they wish to embrace censorship or silence the opposition?

After reading through the forum and answers I see that some of the questions there seem to be asked just for the sake of asking them, but not to get the answer it self. Are these question asked for the purpose of marketing the hubs/author? Is it better for my hubs to ask...

Is HP reviving a bunch of old questions due to lack of participation?I noticed that most of the 2 and 3 year old questions have short answers posted. Most of them 8 days ago. Makes me wonder if this is something that is done in slow times or coincidence.
