    I think the people who answer should be able to earn something one way to do it could be might be a little complicated or easy I’m not very technical but the concept
    For example the person who asks something should be able to choose best answer and the person with the best answer get 10% of rev share and the 10% should be taken of the person who asks the question so instead of 60% once he/she chooses the best answer he/she gets 50% best answer get 10 and so on.

    I personally wouldn’t mind giving a share to a good answer if I’m asking something I need an answer – there will be no fraud thing going on as I will not choose a bad answer as best answer to my question and if I do I would just be taking 10% from here giving it there

    What you Guys Think? Would any of you be prepared to give a bit of your share for a good answer?

      I raised this point when the new Q&A earning system was announced.  It doesn't seem fair to me:  the questioner just has to think up a one- or two-sentence question.  It's the answerers who provide all the content.  Yet it's the questioner who gets paid.

      However, I doubt there's any way anything can be paid for best answer. Your questions will be part of your sub-domain and therefore the ads will work exactly the same as ads on your Hubs. HubPages would have to make a manual payment for best answer, which would be a lot of extra work and they don't have the staff.

        Maybe it could work similar to the referral program - ad rotation.

    My brain reads based on punctuation. It couldn't stop reading because there were no commas and lots of run on sentences, LOL!

    And I'm sure Hubpages will work out the fine details once the system is in place - they'll need to implement it then see how it goes first.

        What 2?  I found the lack of punctuation confusing too.
