Why was my question removed?
A couple of hours ago I asked why my golf article which is #1 on the HOT list out of 1,730 golf articles and also #5 at that time on the BEST list only had a score of 89. What does it take to get a 100? Two hours later, the question has been deleted and my golf article dropped all the way to 23rd in less than 2 hours. It has been out there for over 3 months. Go figure?
A question like that belongs in the forum section in the need help ask section. Why it dropped, no clue.
I agree it belongs on the forum. But unless phrased the right way, such a question of forum post could be seen as self-promotion.
There is no way to pose the question without mentioning the circumstances that I did. That is the point of the whole question. Thanks for your opinion. My question, by the way, was entered under Hubs Tutorial/Hubs Score/Hubs Removed?
You are very welcome. I understand. It is purely speculative on my part, whether that could have been the reason.
The problem is that many questions get removed for little to no reason other than one of the HP people didn't like it. Just keep in mind that it is nothing personal and try putting it somewhere else. I've had it happen also.
I would say it fits with overly promotional. You are not meant to advertise your hubs in questions.
Sorry you didn't like my answer. Actually, I did find your first question and it is still published.
I don't believe you understood the question. It could not be asked without the details. You don't need promotion when you are already on the top. Appreciate your comments however.
I'd say it was because the question was perceived as overly self-serving, one of the details found under the definition of "spam" that is seen when you flag a question.
Hubs that are good go through wide ranges. Please don't worry about score. My best one goes from 80s to 90s all the time. I don't see many 100 scores. If you do your best, that is all you can do. Scores are out of your control. Good luck with your golf hub. It may rise again.
