Today I made a couple of request hubs and as usual the hubs were short. I have put in tags that would allow the writer to expand, but each time there is a short answer. However, what I find funny was one Hub request I made about salad bar bacteria had some very odd comments. The guy told someone they were a backstabber and asked if they were still employed. Gee, did not know what to think about that, especially since the comment before it had either been deleted or he was talking to himself.
That is a little weird! When I answer a request, I try to give as much information as I can. I have noticed a lot of request answers tend to be rather short.
Lol, very strange! I was left a comment the other day (which I denied) because it was just a personal attack at me for bad spelling in my hub (which is strange because I always spell check!)
I think some people just don't understand English that well and they make amateur translation mistakes, either that or they don't realise that us English spell it colour! (the correct way )
Could hub pages not make it more beneficial to you to answer with a normal length hub rather than a short reply? Kind of make it better for your score to give a more in depth answer (or penalize for a short one)
I am surprised Americans still do that. Very immature indeed.
:rolleyes:South Africans also folle the English English, so yes it sometimes does cause confusion.
Hubs from a request for... should be the type of hub you would normally write, same length etc., not just a quickie for the weekly score cards.
The funny thing about the Hub in question though was the man was getting mad at someone whose comments were not showing up on the Hub. I would think he would delete this if he had deleted her comments. His comment to the lady seem like a bizarre personal attack. I wonder if he made this weird comment to get more people to comment on his Hub .

I know that hubpages really pushes for new hubs to be created, and rightfully so. However, I'm thinking it would be nice to be able to "answer a hub request" with an existing hub.So if someone does a hub request for something I've written on (revver videos, for example), I can simply...

Is it rude to point out grammar/spelling mistakes on hubs via comments?I've come across numerous hubs that have grammar and spelling errors, some minor and some littered with mistakes. Otherwise, these hubs would be interesting and will written in my opinion. Is it rude to point out these mistakes...

There are two newly discovered hubbers who have only posted raw translations by using online translating tool, what they did was merely copy and paste the results without doing any further modifications. From the comments they replied, you can tell they don't really understand much English. Even...

Do you read hubs written in poor English? Why or why not? And do you tell the writer?Many hubs I see are written in very poor English and are difficult to understand. Do most people read them? Should you leave them advice to better their English?

How important is it to have a comment section on your hubs, or How important is it to respond?I was going through some of the hubs that belong to some of the top paid hubbers ( info found on the success story page) and a lot of those people do not respond to comments. In fact, many of their...

Does it bother you that people visit your hubs and don't leave comments?What's more important to you, getting tons of traffic with no comments or getting less traffic with comments?For me, I love to get comments because it lets me know if I have touched someone or given someone a new way of doing...
