Are you wary of answering questions from someone who has been on HP for months and has 0 hubs?
Especially money making questions. Although we are encouraged by HP to help beginners, I think it might be best to avoid those that might not appear genuine. Some might just be looking for material to recycle elsewhere.
Most often the answer I would give someone like that is just "you need to be writing Hubs" and direct them to the Learning Center. It's not uncommon to find people who sign up with the site who then didn't decide to truly become active until months later.
Eh, no harm can come of it. Just always avoid things like, "hey, what niche has made you the most money on Hubpages???"
I was born at night...but it wasn't last night.
If I wanted to have some fun with that though, I'd say, "current events and American politics make me tons of dough!! Get your piece of the pie today!"
I have thought about it. They could certainly be people who are gathering info. That is why I try to be general in my location and any personal information. It is so easy to get caught in that personal information trap.

I don’t get many notifications, maybe one or two a week. It’s nice knowing when someone has commented on one of my articles. Recently though I’m getting notifications every time someone I follow answers a question on their own articles. How do I turn it off?

I think I requested this several times before, but could we have the same editing tools as appear in text modules. I.e. text formatting and symbols at least?

Hi, I wonder why I am suddenly banned from answering questions. Is the ban permanent or temporary? I have written to the HubPages Team but I thought that I may be able to get a faster response here. Is there a guideline on how to answer questions? Honestly, I really don't know which rule I have...

Do you make money from asking and answering questions on Hubpages?
by Mark Ewbie 6 years ago
Why do people keep saying "I wrote a hub on it" when answering questions on the forums?Tedious, boring, bad manners, self publicity? As if one possible extra visit is going to make any difference in terms of income, fame, success, etc.
