Your answer is too short. Please make it longer
Why are we not allowed to give short answers/replies to questions asked.
Sometimes less is more.
Sometimes saying something precise and to the point says it all.
So why can't our answers be allowed to be short as well as long?
Hello singleaple! The reason that answers are required to be of a certain length is because the whole point of the questions section on HubPages is to get readers to leave long answers and ultimately, write a Hub article that answers the question in great detail. Anything that requires a brief opinion or short answer should be posted in the forums section of HubPages where there is virtually no length limit to your responses. I hope this answers your question!
Whoops just got a "Your answer is too short. Please make it longer"
Sorry now I need to do a bit of waffly stuff before my THANKS can be shown..
Oh you can make them very short, just type one word and hit the space bar and let the cursor carry across the box. It is counted as words.....................
Yes, it's a joke really when you consider that some of the questions only require a yes or no answer.
Longer answers are likely to be filled with much information, while short answers usually aren't, though sometimes the answer to a question can simply be yes or no.

Whats the average word count on your hubs?

When googling something are you looking for short easy to read or long very explained answers?I'm confused. We are encouraged to write very long hubs. However I have always been the one when googling something to look for the shortest easiest (but of course understandable) answer. To me google is...

To date, I have been denied permission to ask and/or answer questions because of revenge? mark downs by disgruntled hubbers. I get blocked for a while, then un-blocked, then blocked again. Also some of my Q&As are deleted by HP staff without notice or a chance to defend my position. The Q&A...

I have a question. I just did an hub which is a prose that was an interpretation of an art (say, Vango Gogh). I think it's considered prose. I can't find anything that would make it unfeatured unless maybe it's not an article, poem, or set apart prose? Is it the nature of the hub?Spelling and...
