I have started a Sci-Fi hub that people can ask for help in finding old sci-fi movies or TV shows they may have seen in thier past and need the title of. I wanted the questions and answers to appear on my main hub page so that others can read them if they are looking for the same films but they are publish on a seperate page... should I just get people to ask questions in the comments box and answer through that or just carry on answering with the ask and answer section? I am new to all this as this is my first hub. I hope this makes sense somehow? Help!
Welcome to HubPages!
The "questions and answer" section of HubPages isn't for having a dialogue with people, and you earn no money from it. It's really just a place to get inspiration for Hubs. Interaction happens in the comments on your Hubs.
However, though I hate to discourage anyone from using HubPages, I can't help feeling your idea would be much more successful on a blog (perhaps on blogger.com, where you can also monetize with Adsense and Amazon).
The trouble with a blog is that (unlike HubPages) you'll have to do a lot of promoting before anyone will notice it - but that's where you can write Hubs about related topics, each one with a couple of links to your blog, to raise its profile.
Questions and answers can both be seen on every page in the comment Hubpages is more article writing than Blogging. If I were you I would write an article about your interests and some of your favorite Sci-Fi topics then offer your willingness to assist through the comment section.

I am not looking to name names here as this happens quite a lot on Hubpages, but can someone please clarify whether or not it is against the rules for a Hubber to come to your hub, leave a comment and then include a link to one of their own hubs as a part of that comment. I know it says under each...

What are the potentially cons of not using a comment box?I'm tired of answering the same questions over and over again. I'm tired of getting rude comments. I'm tired of dealing with it basically. I want to help people, but answering the same question over and over again or having to defend myself...

How often do you Deny comments from another HP member?If you do deny them is it because of profanity/insults, you don't like what they say because it goes against your hub, you are suppressing commentary, or another reason.

In the past few days, I've been getting racist comments left by "visitors" - people who leave comments but aren't members of HP. For the most part, these remarks are combined with anti-police remarks and being left on my law enforcement and crime hubs; however, one or two have been left...

If I view my account's Comments page, it's easy to view, approve and respond to unapproved comments. However, if I go to a new comment in one of my hubs and click Approve, I cannot reply to it directly on the comment. Instead, I have to go to my main Comments page and find the now approved comment...
