    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.
