    Do you prefer quality or quantity concerning your questions?

    Do you prefer to ask many questions whatever is their quality, or good questions even if they are rare to find?
    Same about the answers you receive. What is more important to you, the number of answers or how much helpful they are?

    I never ask something that does not interest me at all.

    Some people in HP decided they will make "huge bucks" by moving Q&A to their domain.

    Actually this can harm your subdomain page rank, because the search engine sees the questions with too short or no answers as a low quality page.

    OTOH: Good, controversial Questions with many good answers can be good for your rank (and your revenue)

    I like to ask questions in which I am truly interested, preferably getting a sensible answer.
    Unfortunatly there are many hubbers who flood this section with inane, low quality questions, and by the lack of response to the many answers they often get, they are obviously not interested in the answers.  I can't understand why some hubbers answer these questions.

    I really would prefer quality when it comes to my questions. I'd like to give my readers something to think about and to possible make conversation about.

    Quality. There is usually a reason behind all my question. Any opinions given are useful and I always appreciate anyone who takes time out to answer them.

    But sometimes some of the questions I ask just aren't relevant to certain people. So it hit and miss whether you get replies.

    I try to answer questions to which I would like to hear answers. I was disturbed to have a response that made no sense but was vaguely unpleasant from someone identified as a Level Two Commentator. I am not sure what qualifies someone as a Level Two Commentator, but if it is a question of spewing a volume of gibberish to multiple hubbers, it elucidates why I would prefer to be able to post hubs without scores or without having scores affected by the number of times I have responded to questions that don't interest me or posted answers regardless of their merit--or lack thereof.
    Unhelpful answers are a  waste of everyone's time, but apparently they help hub scores.
    I hope that was helpful.

    I ask a question once every three months or so, tops. I enjoy answering questions from others but ever since the Powers That Be decided to monetize them, the question sections have been flooded by people who ask dozens of variations on the same damn question (i.e. "How do I get a credit card?" "What is the best credit card to get?" "What is the best low percentage credit card?" and so on)... which is irritating as hell...

    I don't ask questions very often, and I only ask questions that interest me, but are they quality questions? I don't know. Sometimes question that I think are great get very few or no responses at all. I appreciate anyone that honestly tried to answer a question of mine, and lots of answers does seem to be an indication that people are interested in the question, but if I get one good answer sometimes that's enough.

    I like the question you asked because it made me really stop and think of an appropriate answer. For instance, when I ask a question it is due to a curiosity I have on a certain topic. It stands to reason then that I want a qualified answer, but in addition, I also want some diversity and input from others and I can't accomplish that goal with only a couple of replies. I guess, if I am to be totally honest in answering your question I would have to say I like a nice marriage of quality and quantity.

    Quality questions and answers. Many people do not know how to ask questions and some hubbers happen to ask these quality questions with great answers replied that helped them a lot. One answer with quality is better than having 10 answers which are not helpful.

    Questions or anything else quality matters. Hubpages, I feel is a place where quality matters. I have found very good company on hubpages and it is the best thing to have happened to me in my life.

    This should be a "no-brainer" but obviously isn't. So allow me to thank you for asking this question. I hope everyone will at sometime or the other drop by to read the good comments posted here.

    I get annoyed when some very stupid questions are asked. I wonder if questions should be moderated to avoid just anyone asking any question just for the sake of asking a question in the first place. I've come across questions that sound like they have been written by a five yr old.

    This is my way of giving my vote for quality questions...always.

    I only answer quality questions when I have something to contribute.
