Why doesn't HubPages delete unanswered or years old questions?
I'm finding very old questions from years ago and unanswered questions that should be deleted.New versions of these questions may spur some interest. What do you think?
Thanks for reminding me to go through my list and close out some, delete some, etc.
There's probably a benefit to the website - this place is a business, of course. They aren't in this to NOT make money.
I agree with you Stacie, the unattended questions should be dealt with a proper mechanism. But retaining those questions sends a message that there is a hope of an answer. This hope has a dual message. One, for the questionnaire, that the curiosity and subject of the question has been retained for a proper reply. Second, for the Hubbers, that they will scroll down the old ones to write there answers. So whenever you look at the old questions, they should remind you of curiosity and hope.
I agree, I see a lot of unanswered questions in the answer section, was wondering why accumulated for so long

Is HP reviving a bunch of old questions due to lack of participation?I noticed that most of the 2 and 3 year old questions have short answers posted. Most of them 8 days ago. Makes me wonder if this is something that is done in slow times or coincidence.

That's my question. I refresh my Hub "In the Daze" every quarter or so. The old comments from the previous hub are still there. How do I delete them? Sorry to be so dense. Could you help me with this?THNXMarsha

Whenever I look at the Q&A "explore answers" section, I see questions that are still there after five years or more. Sometimes the questions are extremely stagnant and inactive. I think it would be a good idea to auto delete questions that are over a year old on an ongoing basis just...
