I've had a few requests closed for me, yet again. I'm getting kind of discouraged with making requests. I thought requests are there for people to answer. How can they answer them if that anti-request bot automatically closes them? Just wondering.
I'll say again:
Requests that look to prompt hubs that won't be in compliance with our terms (whether short yes/no answers, personal content, or overly promotional content) will be removed as soon as they're brought to our attention.
Requests ARE there to be answered... with good quality, evergreen content. We try to point you in the right direction as far as making requests that will yield such content, both on the request page itself, and in the FAQ.
Can I re-do a request to make it evergreen? (Kinda thought that would be the job of the writer though.) Instead of "What do you use salt in/on?" would it be alright to request "What are the destructive effects of using too much salt in foods?" Would that be alright?
I have a question for Professor Ruud. Perhaps you can explain to me what benefit there is to posting requests? Is it purely because people have curiosity about a particular subject? When I come up with an idea that I'm curious about, I research it and write about it, but maybe that's just me?

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...
