If you answer someone's question and they don't respond back, is that bad hub etiquette?
I personally don't think so.....sometimes there just isn't time to respond back. I could be taken as rude for saying that but I really don't think folks are checking back to
see if there's a responce all the time.
I think it is bad etiquette to not acknowledge people. There are many people on here that are obviously not interested to the answers to their questions by not acknowledging the people who have taken the trouible to answer. It would be considered rude to not acknowledge some one who answered a question, face to face, does asking on the internet give leave to be rude by not acknowledging? I wonder why they ask the questions, perhaps some kick out of seeing their name or alias up on the screen, their 15 minutes? Perhaps we would get rid of the rubbish, inane questions on here if it was deemed neccessary to respond by the HP team.
The comment option on answers is new. When it comes down to it the answers section is not meant to be for conversation, that's what the forums are for. I think we may be taking it a bit far to suddenly expect everyone to respond to every answer. These questions are meant to bring in google traffic. People coming from google aren't going to care if there is a thank you or not.
Personally I comment when I see fit, but I will never thank every person who answers my questions. My questions have produced over 1500 answers and quite honestly I don't have the time (and if I did I'd rather spend it with my kids) to respond to every single person here. My lack of response doesn't mean I don't appreciate their answers.
No, i think that maybe he/she doesn't have time to check on all the answers if he/she posted so many questions. However, i try to comment those who answered my questions. Politeness makes a great deal.
I feel that responding to answers is optional. I don't respond to every answer I get, nor do I expect all of my answers to receive a comment.

Do you think it is important to add follow-up comments when people answer your questions?When I answer a question or leave a comment on someone's hub, I appreciate some awknowledgement. I feel surprised (and a bit "cheated" when there is no response) Am I setting my expectations too...

I tried to post this in the answers section-where I think the question should be-but I kept being told the question had already been asked by someone else-not true-and I couldn't post it. This is directed only to hubbers who tend to respond to all comments left on their hub, rather than never...

I'm sure there are many reasons for and against responding to comments left by your readers. What do you think?

What the heck is the point of Q&A? I don't mean that sarcastically. I am really trying to figure it out. I can't formulate a strategy for properly using this feature unless I can understand the intent behind it.First the Q&A questions/answers were on their own pages with their own urls. It...

Why ask a question - do you really care about the responses or is it for entertainment?

As many of you noticed, we've recently been doing some testing with the Q&A feature on articles vs. with their own URLs. As a result of our tests we've developed a new policy.Once approved by a moderator, Questions will have a grace period to gain traffic on their own URL. Questions that gain a...
