I love the new request a hub idea, but I wonder if it could be made a little better. When people are requesting a hub they are asked to be as descriptive as possible with their question, this leads to some very long hub titles when the requests are answered, this could be made easier if you had a request title and then a description capsule, where you could go into a little more detail about the request.
for example this question asked by livelonger would look something like this.

That's a wonderful idea. I also like the requests function, but sometimes the titles are so, ridiculously long.
We'll consider that change, but keep in mind that when you make a Hub that answers a request you can (and often should) change the title and tags to better match the content of your hub. They are just initial suggestions ...
Paul is absolutely right. We can change the title when we answer requests. I do it all the time!

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 request.

I know answering requests improves scores but answering our own request does it also improve or on the contrary does it decrease the score(and also does it go against the convention here at hubpages)?I am asking this question for this particular request and also for a couple of other requests I...

I noticed that hubpages is putting in nice hub requests and this is motivating people to create great hubs, thanks for the hub requests, as requests give us a reason to create beautiful hubs and we share each other's point of views with that.I would like to share other hubber's views on this topic.
