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.
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.
I agree and that is correct experienced that myself.
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?
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.
the regulations and rules are and should be followed. if the rules are the same to everyone than i dont mind playing. i love hub pages and really see no problem to follow guides and rules iam not better or worse than anyone here. love all koma. if anyone has a problem or solution they are there to help no?
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.
Was this the thread where you well telling people to visit you jewellry site or hub?
I got curious and was searching for it, and found this must be the one:
Ms. Clinton visits India
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.

There are a lot of us who haven't been feeling safe on the forums. They've felt stalked, harassed and browbeaten.Sadly, some folks go with the letter of the law, but not the spirit of it in their posts.For an excellent post on why we need Forum Moderators, check out what Makingamark says here...

Earlier this morning I created a thread on the Hub Makeover forum, because I had emailed Team HubPages and hadn't had a response. Jason eventually responded and told me what I already knew, that the Hub had triggered the Affiliate link rule because of my RSS feed (to my own blog). Then...

I just noticed that Matthew replied to a question from a Hubber and immediately closed the threadThere used to be an unspoken policy on the forums - a thread was only closed if things got too heated and unpleasant. I hope that policy is not going to change, for several reasons. For one thing,...

I've decided to make a daily commitment (M-F) of posting a "help thread" on the freeform discussion for users to get help from the community. I understand there are places and forums designed for this but there has been an issue with relevant content coming up on the main forum page. A...

I was just curious. I have not seen a lot of hubbers that have been here at Hubpages for over two years..perhaps they are too busy hubbing away!

Ok Im trying not to be mean ,judgemental or controlling but Hubpages dont you think its time to limit how many times a person can BEGIN a thread? I know you would be fair and encourage discussion across all topics ,but of late too many of the same or random threads seem to be gushing outta...
