    How to close questions

    How do you close a question? I don't see that option in the "your questions" section.

    If enough hub-lubbers don't like it, it will be deleted. Don't ask too many. They consider that SPAM when hubbers ask questions just to draw attention to themselves. But no, they never go away. Bad ones will haunt you, as will answers that you entered.

    Good answer Brandon! I never thought of the long term effect of bad answers or bad questions.

    I knew they can't be closed but you made me think about the effect of answers I put out here, to defend or back up a story I believe in. Nothing that offensive but I don't hold back at times, pointing out my strong opinion.

    Thanks for your view on this! It's helpful indeed.

    I'm afraid that it's not your option.  That's staff's option.

    I do think that if you did write to team@hubpages.com about wanting to close a question that you'd get a reply.  I'm not certain that they'd close your question, but it wouldn't be considered unless you did ask unless there were other good reasons to close it that staff was already aware of.
