I have a deleted question with no explanation, does anyone know how moderators rate questions?
It is not a bad question, but I did respond to the people who did answer. Maybe that is the problem. Are we not supposed to respond in our own questions? Thanks!
When a question is deleted or closed by staff, it is usually because it encourages a discussion rather than seeks an answer or the question has encouraged a discussion which is eliciting negative comments and/or is trending into possible personal attacks.
These are the main reasons but not the only ones.
I think you are allowed one answer yourself Susan. I had one pulled with the explanation that it invited discussion. Well of course a question invites discussion. Probably just depends on whose computer your question flashed up on.
When a question is asked the user should be able to answer it how they want - discussion or not.
Hi Sholland10. I have bunches of questions pulled. Usually the memo from hubpages said it was like Luis stated encouraging a discussion. I have a few that were deemed polls and not questions. We are not suppose to poll in the Answer area. And, I have 2 that were not posted or pulled as soon as posted with no reason. So, I think those just flat out broke the rules of how to post a question.
I am not sure about responding. I presume you mean in the Q & A section and not by contacting the person. The question section has undergone some changes I think. I thought you had the opportunity to respond once to an answer like The Frog Prince said. But, you do have the power to delete responses to your questions.

In the past many Hubbers, including myself, have seen the "Report a Problem" or "Need Help" threads as a way to either get a policy explained, or as a way to escalate an urgent problem when emails weren't eliciting a response. It is now obvious that is no longer the case,...
