Is the Q-A section loosing its charm with less participation by Hubbers?
Fewer questions are being asked and answered.
I find that questions have changed, sometimes you still get those which provoke debate but most of the time they have a religious bias or are questions which the person who asked has a clear motive and they have an opinion and want to see how popular it is.
You also get people who actually ask questions like school exams?
And predominantly American!!
Some questions stir strife. That is not appealing to me.
There is certainly less variety of quality questions to choose from, in addition to several of them being solely antagonistic. I wish more of us would bring in more interesting questions. It seems for awhile many questions were getting flagged as "conversational" - so people seemed to lose interest.
But I find it still active. Questions are flooding, but answers are limited. Here the hubbers need to pay more attention. In fact this session is so interesting and updates our knowledge on various topics. My advice to all hubbers: Please active more on Q&A section.
I have noticed less questions. When I first started, there used to be new questions every time I logged on. Now they seem to stay around longer with less questions being asked. I thought it was due to the summer and people being offline more.
I'd ask more questions, but I don't have any that would seem that interesting - at least I don't think so. When I log into HP, I always spend some time reading the questions that were posted since the last time I was on. The reason I don't answer as many is because I either don't have anything to say or the questions are too basic and I don't know what type of answer the person is looking for.
A lot of the questions are being repeated by new people. Also, if nothing is happening in the news, there is little to talk about. Only trivia or personal issues and opinions.
I have noticed a distinct change in this section. Very few fun questions, lots of serious stuff and repeats as well. I know I am spending the bulk of my time on Bubblews because there I make money. Here for 3 years and haven't made money so I am moving my stuff. I think a lot of hubbers are moving.
So many of the Q&A have gone off into religion that I just get fed up with it.
Even the questions that aren't directly religious often have religious bias and I just don't care about religion or religious perspectives.
I tend to go in spurts then get fed up and drop off for prolonged periods if I don't see questions that interest me.
I also tend to be far more active during the Monsoon season when there is less to do.

Who thinks we should ask to reinstate a page dedicated to locating hubbers by hubber score. Beginning with 100-0.We once had such a page here that made the hubber score much more relevant, and we could at least get a chance to locate the top hubbers who most definitely deserved high praise for...

I used to be totally addicted to HP, couldn't wait to log on everyday to see what was happening, who and what was popping in the forums, what interesting hub made HOTD, and of course, how my stats and earnings were progressing. I looked forward to the rush I got from clicking "publish"...

When I look at the questions section of hubpages I see pages and pages of silly questions. A lot of the time, when I click on "unanswered" or "latest" I see that the same person has asked ten or so questions in a row. I suspect that in most cases this is because of the fact that...

I have noticed that an increasing number of people seem to have joined this site merely to spam religion on the forum. This would be okay if it was not for the fact that this is a forum for writers, not theists.I am all for having a community forum, but I believe it should be a community forum for...

To date, I have been denied permission to ask and/or answer questions because of revenge? mark downs by disgruntled hubbers. I get blocked for a while, then un-blocked, then blocked again. Also some of my Q&As are deleted by HP staff without notice or a chance to defend my position. The Q&A...
