    Why do we have daily limits of questions that we can ask on Hub Pages?

    I get cut off after a while from asking questions. I ask question nto necessarily because I don't know the answers, but to sees how others differ in their response. Why limit the number of Questions!

    I really don't know that there is a number limit for asking questions on HubPages. This is the first time i have come to know that there is a limit daily for asking questions in here.

    Because there are already droves of hubbers who flood the section with inane questions that they don't seem interested in any answer.  Without the limit, this section would be flooded with many more inane questions from the same people.

    I didn't know that the number of questions we can ask is limited. Good to know this anyway. At least HubPages will not be flooded with useless questions.

    Classify your questions according to their importance to you and ask some each day. I can't see any other solution but this smile

    You are allowed to ask 10 questions a day, that is more than enough in some cases.

      More than enough in every case,tightening up will lead to better questions, not questions for the sake of it.

      True. I am tired of people basically asking the same question 10 times in a row rewriting it just enough not to be a dup.
      And people don't seem to notice the box that shows you how many times the same question has been asked already.

      Oh! 10 is too much. I don't even know if I can call it a limit.

    Knoji has question limits as well, although the allotment of questions differs depending on your rank. So for me as a knoji expert, I can ask 3 questions, but as a knoji contributor, I could only ask 2 questions per day. It's a brilliant idea to limit the amount of crap that gets asked. If you only have so many questions, you're more likely to ask decent questions rather than waste one on a question of poor quality.

    I've noticed some people literally asking 10 questions a day too... silly ones that I don't think they really want answering. Is there some hidden benefit to asking questions that I don't know about?

      It also helps to write hubs. The information that I get from your answers helps me to do a survey without giving you a long list of things to read that seem boring. I love reading the answers to my questions. Occupationally I ask a personal question.

      It is also a good way to find unique people to follow. Most of the people that I follow are because I like the answers to the questions that I posted.

      Some people prefer to use this site to talk to others. Asking and answering questions can be a good way to meet others and be part of a community.

    Just browsing questions, I see series of often shallow and inane questions by the same persons, which suggestws to me that they are trying to boost hub scores by quantity instead of quality.

    I think that many new Hubbers want to ask lots of questions to boost their Hubber score and get accolades, which results in repetitive questions. So i think that daily limits are a good idea but I think it would have been even better to have a gradual limit. Maybe limit it to just 3 question and increase the limit depending how long you have been on Hub Pages. Like you even if I know the answer to a question I like hearing others views on it.

    I also think that their should be a limit on answers and a word count too.  Too many answers with few words are being submitted. And so many people answer for the sake of answering, even when their answer dismisses the question and patronizes the asker.
