    How do I delete a question from a forum?

      If you click on the "more" button under a post that you've made, you'll see the "delete" button. It's there for a limited time, though. Eventually (which seems to be after a period of several hours), it disappears. After this time period, you would have to ask the HubPages team to help you.

        Also your hubs are under the name Linda Crampton. I know I am missing something here.

    Hello again AliciaC, I joined Hubpages in 2011 and wrote prolifically for a few years but then stopped. I have recently started writing again but things have changed dramatically here on Hubpages in the interim. I really appreciate your help and went to look at your hubs. I loved the Time Traveller's Wife review but found that I was not allowed to comment. I also noticed that many of your hubs were under a link called 'owlcation' and not hubpages. I am not sure if this has anything to do with it.

      Hi again, Spirit Whisperer. Our HubPages user name doesn't have to be the same as our real name. When I joined HubPages, I was quite new to online writing and didn't want to put my real name on my articles. I've changed my opinion since then.

      Owlcation and the other niche sites belong to the HubPages network. It's a good goal to get our articles switched to a niche site because they are likely to earn more money there.

      Thank you for the comment about my article. The ability to comment on articles themselves was removed some time ago and has been returned to only a few of the niche sites. That's why so many people share articles in the forums. We're allowed to do this, as long as we don't share our own hubs.

    Hello again AliciaC, I hope you don't me picking your brains like this as I am sure you must have better things to do. With regard to niche sites how do you go about to getting your articles switched to a niche site and is that when you change your name if you wish to? What forum would you like me to post your article? I also had a question about your review of the Time Traveller's wife. I wondered why you didn't propose plausible explanations for the flaws you perceived in the story. That could even be a separate hub but I am genuinely interested.

    I don’t mind the questions. All new articles are considered for placement on a niche site. We don’t have to submit these. We can submit an article that hasn’t been switched once every two weeks. It’s advisable to edit and improve the hub first in order to improve the chance of it being moved.

    Once you’ve finished editing, you’ll need to click the button for submitting the article to another site. You’ll see this button at the top of the page. Clicking it will lead to a series of questions that you must answer. It’s important to choose the most appropriate destination for the article or your request might be refused.

    You can add your real name at any time via the settings in your profile.

    I didn’t share possible scientific explanations for the points in my article because I thought that was beyond the scope of a book review. As you say, I think the topic would be better in a separate article. Thanks for the offer to share the hub. People generally share articles that have just been published, though.

      That clarifies a lot. You have been most helpful and no doubt our paths will cross again here.

    I found the discourse very interesting and enlightening.
