In the HubPages "Answers and Question" section, it is okay in the answer to provide a link to one of own Hub article?
What about in the Forum section?
What about putting own links in the comments of other people's post? Is that okay?
I don't think it is okey to put your own link someone's post.
If in doubt, don't. In the forums links to hubs you have are not allowed other than in the hub critique subforum.
General rule of thumb.
Only drop a link if it is relevant to the topic. Reading about how to make strawberry ice cream. You got a post on making the world's greatest chocolate ice cream, drop a link. You hove a post on why you like purple shirt fridays, don't link.
This thread is still in need of the precise answer from someone who knows the answer for certain. I don't happen to know for certain, so I'm not going to pretend I do. On HubPages "general rule of thumb" isn't necessarily what to go by, so I'd go with what psychskinner said ("when in doubt don't do it")
Just a note on the link-posting thing in general: So many people are under the impression that posting a link in things like other people's Hubs is OK as long it's "relevant". That's not necessarily true, as a lot of link-posters often discover. These days people are going to be more careful than ever about what links get posted where on this site.

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...

Do you think being able to choose a best answer will change the Answers section?So it has now been said that soon we will be able to pick a best answer. Do you think this will have any impact on the answers section?

I know this might seem like beating a dead horse, but...A lot of hubbers, even hubbers who have really written fab hubs and contribute a great deal of inspiration in the forums have been copying answers from other answer sites and using them as their own in the answer section in HubPages.I can...

What do you think of people who ask a question then use the answers to write a hub?What do you think of people who ask a question (in forums or answer section etc) then use your answers and turn them into a hub? Would it bother you?

All of us that have visited the question section know that much of the content there is of very questionable quality. It's difficult to see how many of the questions really contribute to the community or discussion on HubPages at all, ranging as they do from mediocre to banal.Of course, there are...
