Can you answer a Question with an existing hub

    If this is allowed and possible to do, how does one go about doing it?

    As far as I know, you cannot answer a question with an already written hub.

    However, you can answer a person's question by telling the person that you've already written a hub that answers their question and give them a title. But, do not post a link to that hub. You could be flagged for "self promotion".

      thanks Cagsil, I'm so glad I posted this question... I almost posted a link to my hub as an answer to one of the questions.

      I've posted a link to an existing Hub several times when answering a question, and I've never been flagged for it.

      In fact a few times I've deliberately gone looking for questions to answer with links to existing Hubs!  I did find that I had to write some text as well - but  I think you're wrong, Cags.
