    I just posted a new hub today - Alternative Medicine - an Overview.  I then received the monthly news letter from hubpages.  I found that this very topic was a request.  Since I already posted it, I suppose I can't take credit for filling the request.  Yet, it probably should now be taken off of the request list.  How do I get that done?

    Just because a request has been answered does not mean it must get taken down. Many requests have several answers! It stinks that you couldn't answer the request, but there may be others that you can answer.

    Why take down a request just because you've already written a hub about the topic? Other people may have different opinions and views about the same topic to give different insight for the request. There's no reason to take it down, unless the hubber who posted the request wants to. In a way it's a little selfish to think that because you wrote a hub that has a similar request, that your answer is the end all be all to the topic. *shrugs sorry just my opinion*

    For example: Someone could post about having cats as pets. I could post a hub saying they're terrible pets, but someone else may post one saying they're great pets. And even further, a third person may post a hub giving 5 different reasons as to why cats are great pets than the first person, and a 4th with different reasons as to why they're bad pets, and so on.

    I know there have been a few hubs that I've made and months down the line find requests over the same topic. I've never thought to ask to have the request removed. One thing that you may consider is writing another hub on the same topic, answering the request and give a different perspective and linking the two hubs.

    You don't own a topic just because you wrote 1 hub on it: or even 1000! Have you noticed how many "loose weight fast" books your local book shop carries!

    Karen, the Requests are just there to give Hubbers inspiration to write a Hub.  You don't earn any special kudos (or any extra money!) by answering a request, so there's no sense in stressing about it.
