    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 second that! I have also ran across requests that I already have hubs to answer so therefore I just let them slide. This option would definitely be nice.

    I'd support this too.
    It seems that many requesters are too lazy to search hubpages for existing hubs, and it would be great to refer them to an existing hub.

    Many of the requests are also very vague, meaningless.
    Almost as if they were put there just to get the numbers up!

    Could we have the ability to flag a request as substandard big_smile

    Another YES vote here!

    Off on a slight tangent, a lot of the requests I see can best be answered in one sentence or less.  It would be nice to have some way to answer them other than writing a substandard hub, but my fuzzbrain isn't coming up with one.

      I agree with Marian... I sometimes will message those who make the kinds of requests that can easily and briefly be answered, because it's not enough content for a whole Hub.
