    Dear hubbers,

    I want to know that who decide to close a forum thread? Is it the promoter of the thread or Hubpages?

    Is there any rules or regulations regarding that or this is discretionary power of Hubpages team?

    If there are rules what are they?

    recently one of my thread is closed for answer.

    Thanks,
    Jyoti Kothari

      Checking a few of your recent threads Jyoti, and I don't see any closed. How old is the thread?

      Hello friend, I do not have an answer. My question why do we demand new and more regulations since get drown in the sea of regulations.

      I am not on the Hub team, I am new, but...Hub team is responsible for site quality, if a thread deteriates to crap, they will and should close it. Its their site, their name is on it. Quality or Garbage its theirs to choose, their ranking is a concern to them, and it should be. You clicked the acceptance box like all of us did?

    Send an email to hubpages team, only the admin can decide this.

    To the best of my knowledge, the HubPages admin team is who closes/locks threads.

    And the forum rules are here, http://hubpages.com/help/forum_rules

    Only a staff member can close a thread.  I've shared some common reasons threads get closed before.  Most of the time, it's because a thread is no longer constructive discussion, and has degenerated into bickering and personal attacks.

    Jyoti, if you start up a thread and see it getting out of control, you can ask to have the thread closed as well.

      Actually I have not demanded to close the thread. Nor the thread has any personal attack or so. It was not even very old. Last post is of last week.

      When I went to answer a post I saw thread is closed. Can I ask hubpages team to re open it?

      Thanks,
      Jyoti Kothari

        Threads are left open unless the Hub team thinks there is a reason to close one.  My guess would be that if they felt they had to lock the thread, there's a good reason for it to be locked.

          There may be some reasons to reopen the same and the starter should have that option.

          Thanks,

    Have you considered emailing Maddie and asking her directly instead of asking your fellow forum users who can't do anything about it?

    You may also want to consider bribery to get your thread re-activated.  HubPages staffers are woefully underpaid and may be succeptible to financial persuasion.  I am not in any way affiliated with said staff, this is just my own opinion; besides I have more money than God.

    I got curious and was searching for it, and found this must be the one:

    Ms. Clinton visits India

  11. relache profile image87
    relacheposted 7 years ago

    If that's the thread, it obviously got closed as posts were degenerating into personal attacks and/or things that could be construed as hate speech.

    Those are the two top reasons threads get locked.
