The worst thing HP has ever done is getting rid of the Q&A section.
Wish they put it back on, because back then I at least had a choice, which I don't have now.
Sigh....I respect everybody's opinion, but I really miss my choice to ignore.
edit to add: I meant the Q&A forum section.
Titia, HP is currently running a test project and they have a Q&A section attached to each hub. It is working great. Instead of all of those weird questions that could be looked up on Google, people that read a hub first are more likely to ask something that affects them. I am not sure of what kind of time line they are looking at, or when it will be available on all hubs, but when it is you wont be able to ignore it! Just wait until some reader asks your advice on lambing.
That's not what I meant DrMark. I meant the forums. But what you describe sounds great.
Yes, I remember them too. I just thought that you might not have heard of this other program. You do recall all of those lame questions on Q&A? That is why HP got rid of it. That is what I was talking about.
Yes, but now those lame questions are cluttering the forum.
The Q&A section served no purpose. It was a haven for spammers, scammers, and gibberish. Good riddance to it.
Yes, but have you been visiting the forum lately?
Of course. I'm visiting it right now.
It was inevitable that some of the goofballs who infested the Q&A section with gibberish would migrate over this-a-way once "their" section got shut down.
Yesterday when I logged in to HP there were about three dozen forum "threads" by the same guy pimping bogus "tech support" phone #'s for various computer services. Just another day on the Net.

I read both forum entries and answers/questions entries but the two features seem to overlap. Many of the questions asked in "answers" are technical questions asked by hubbers about HP. Some elicit long...

The new Feed Facility (that I quite like) means I become aware of loads of really silly questions that new 'hubbers' are asking. Unfortunately I find myself replying with equally silly answers (I know its...

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...

Has anyone else noticed a serious drop in quality among the Question portion of HubPages? For the past several weeks, nearly every question that is featured in the "my account" section has been ripe with...

When you ask a question, is there a way of 'bumping' it up to the top of the queue again, if it has gone unanswered for 2 weeks?I know you can do that on forum posts, by simply adding another comment....Or, should I...
