I saw the new "request feature" so I read a question asking for a list of recently read books. I clicked on "answer," and saw that it required building a new hub. OK, so I did. When I finished, I went to the requests list to see my new hub listed as an answer, but it isn't showing up!
Is there some sort of time delay? Why isn't the hub I built in response being listed?
It is at:
Thanks in advance for your response.
There should not be a time delay.
A yellow box should appear at the top of the page after you click "Answer This Request" (the one where you choose the URL and title for your hub). The box will have details on the request you are answering, and a link that says "don't answer this request". If you click that link the hub you create won't be associated with the request.
Did you see the yellow box? Did you click that link by any chance? If not, there may be some other bug that caused it not to associate properly, which I will try and track down ...
Anyway, I have manually associated your hub with that request.
Yes, I m sure I followed the procedure.
I saw the "don't answer this request" link, but I didn't click on it.
I do NOT remember seeing a yellow box though. When I clicked on "Answer This Request" it immediately took me to the build-a-new-hub workshop area, and the title of the request was pre-filled as the title of the hub. It was really long though, so I shortened it, perhaps that is what threw the system off?
If so, I'm so sorry! It was just a terribly long title, and it seemed logical to make it simpler. That's what I get for thinkin', huh? LOL
Thank you so much for manually associating it - I appreciate that!
No problem Marti.
Adjusting the URL and Title to better match what you plan to write about definitely makes sense, and shouldn't throw things off. I'll continue to investigate what may have caused this ...
If anyone else has had this problem, please chime in.

Sometimes I stumble upon a HubPages request that could be answered by a Hub I've already written... but of course I couldn't submit another such Hub. There should be a way to use a Hub already made in order to answer a...

Some hubbers are taking the mick with it. It's spamming. It's not allowed in the forums. If you want attention promote yourself according to good manners. Not by over spamming in the questions section.

A few months ago I received a request from a hub friend to write a request (I am not naming it - this posting is not self-promoting). A couple of weeks ago I finally answered the hub by using the exact title,...

I know that hubpages really pushes for new hubs to be created, and rightfully so. However, I'm thinking it would be nice to be able to "answer a hub request" with an existing hub.So if someone does a hub...

I noticed in my activity stream and accolades that it says I have answered 10 requests. If that means that I have written 10 hubs in response to user 'Questions' I'm quite sure that is wrong. The real number would be 1,...
