HubPages is going to ‘retire the Question-Answer’ section. Would you miss this section?
I'll miss trolling all the spammers who've turned this section into a cesspool of nonsense, but otherwise...not really.
Yes and No and not so much today. I think I will miss it to some degree. Once upon a time . . . I found inspiration for research adventures and at times for articles. Some questions like this one answered my curiosity. Some of the questions with social interactions were interesting to learn the many views offered. A learning experience.
Thank you Tim Mitchell for answering!
When we think of earlier times, we might miss this section.Q-A sec.provided inspiration to write hubs. Now one can see useless questions being asked, sometimes even by members,who haven’t published a single hub
I won't miss it at all and feel that it lessened the value of the site as a whole. I've been on HubPages since (almost) the beginning and it's evolved so much. This is just another great decision by the HubPages team to keep the site relevant.
Thank you Kierstin Gunsberg, for responding to the question!
I joined HP 5 years ago and then it was a good platform to discuss and interact with other writers. Not any more. You are right that it’s a good decision by HP to do away with Q-A section
Yeah I can concentrate on my writing rather than scrolling through the questions. Like FatFreddysCat says a lot of the questions are just junk and spam or simple questions that can be found through a Google search. A lot of other questions, were just there to start an argument, especially in the Politics and Religion sections. While at one time it was there to inspire hubbers to write an article, it has personally turned into a place of negativity.
Isn't it funny but I will miss it. About a year ago it was still inspiring hubs for me. Lately just kind of a fun waste of time, kind of like drinking.
I worry though that if they were taking focus away from censoring stuff and now will focus more on content that Berkeley people do not approve of it could actually hurt the site.
I was a bit disappointed to hear it as I see it as a valuable part of the site, and it helps you to become acquainted with other writers but apparently you'll be able to use the forums to achieve the same objective.

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...

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...

So, I understand that the question-answer section is to inspire hubs, BUT it feels a little disingenuous to use the information everyone provided, especially when that information would fit nicely in a list. I asked a question about recipes and received lots of great replies. How do I make a...

All of us that have visited the question section know that much of the content there is of very questionable quality. It's difficult to see how many of the questions really contribute to the community or discussion on HubPages at all, ranging as they do from mediocre to banal.Of course, there are...
