    Do you think there should be a limit to the number of questions one can ask per day or in a row?

    I see question after question on a variety of subjects asked by the same hubber--say 6 or 7 in a row.  Are they just trying to rack up points, or raise their score--or can they possible be interested in the answers to all of those diverse questions?

    Could be all of the above.  Although it can lower their score, just as clicking on many hubbers to follow a day.  It does get a bit annoying doesn't it?

    No I do not think that there should be a limit on how many questions people can ask per day. Although I do not ask a great deal of questions, I feel that no one needs respond if someone asks an irrelevant question. I understand your point but I believe in Democracy. I think that too many people try to control too many things in too many places.

    Hello duffsmom! You may have noticed an increase in the same people asking multiple questions lately because of the upcoming "Know It All" contest. The contest revolves around asking questions and answering them in Hub form. If you are not familiar with the contest, check out this link for more information: http://blog.hubpages.com/2012/01/answers/

    Aside of the contest, I don't think there should be a limit to how many questions one can ask. When people ask irrelevant questions, they can be flagged and will be removed by the moderators. Allowing people to ask questions creates a platform for users to share their information an expertise. Limiting that would greatly depress what HubPages is all about: a community of people learning from each other and sharing that knowledge. I suggest that if you think a question is appropriate, then you can flag the question for the moderators.

    Those questioners are gaming the system to make points. Best to ignore them, not to write rules to regulate it. They'll give up and go away once they realize everyone is onto them and won't respond to their postings. Well, most of them will. The diehards may have to be flamed.

    I would have to say that there should not be a limit. Most of the reasons are given here already, as well as how to handle the situation as it presents itself.

    I have found by reviewing the questions along with the many answers, some of my own unpublished questions will be answered. So I benefit from many of the questions.

    I don't believe that there should be any restriction on the amount of questions a person can ask. However I would think that the Hubpages managers would be able to tell if they are nonsense questions designed to game the system as some of you below have said and perhaps issue them a warning regarding this.

    I agree with you there should be a limit. I think they must be trying to rake up points, but I would have thought that writing good quality hubs, reading and commenting on hubs and following others would actually get their scores up more quickly.

    I think what matter most is the quality of the questions asked.  Those unworthy of being posted must be flagged immediately and removed at once.

    I think the reason people are asking so many questions is because of the contest that is coming out next month about the answers section of this site. Because of that contest, people are beginning to ask many questions, because not only do you have to make a hub about a question to win, but if your question gets chosen as a winner, you make money as well. If you don't know what im talking about, try this link...

    Let me also add, that in the contest, Hubpages said you can start asking and writing now, just can't publish hence the large number of questions.

    I think it depends on the type of questions asked. If they are non-sensical types like, "What is you favorite ____?" then, there should be a limit. If they are the types of questions that can bring on a long-form answer, then those are awesome and even encouraged.

    I don't think there should be a limit. For whatever reason people post numerous questions in a row, that is the point of the hubpages.

    No, I don't think so. Because it is plays important aspect in gaining knowledge, but if it happens very frequently it will be annoying. So the hubber should think the importance of it before asking.
