Many of you have pointed out that it would be nice to edit Questions right after they have been posted (it's always embarrassing to find typos AFTER one hits submit), so the ever-fabulous Ari Lamstein made it possible for you to edit your Questions- so long as no Answers have been submitted.
Thanks for your feedback, and we hope you like the improvement!
Nice addition! I know I have clicked and wished I had not when I see that typo staring right out at me!
How nice! Sometimes I see a typo and I'm so embarrassed! Thank you!
Great. My fingers sometimes don't catch up to my mind and typos happen. This way there's a chance of catching the errors. Thanks.
This is a wonderful change! Thanks for such a prompt response (as always) to make HubPages an even more functional publishing platform.
Excellent update! This follows along the lines of 'Comments' on hubs. We have 10 minutes to edit our comments for content and grammatical errors. I've gone back to my hubs to edit for content and errors as well. This will help all of our writing.
Great news! I'm so impressed with the rapidly changing improvements and enhancements on the site. Thanks for all you do for us!
Hubber MickS's answer to one of my questions.
"Who knows, who cares, I'm sure you can think of something more intelligent to ask."
I like how Q&A is evolving. It's becoming a powerful feature in HubPages. I'd like to add a recommendation if I may. I think it would be useful if the author of a question would be able to reply to answers. I am noticing that some people include questions in their answers asking to further elaborate on my question.
Presently all I can do is post an answer to my own question in order to answer them. The problem with that is that it does not always appear under the person post who I am responding to, since the sorting of answers is based on something else.
Another answer I got (Hubber name withheld, she is good of heart )
"Google any questions you want, you will be overwhelmed with what to choose from. No need to ask questions here. It's all on Google.
Another answer I got. (Hubber name withheld)
"Why are you asking so many questions?Are you feeling very worried?"
Another answer I got.:
Hubber tussin says
"Hubpages' recent move to give askers a share of the ad impressions has resulted in a decline in question quality. I see that you've spent your days asking inane question after inane question hoping to capitalize on popular google queries. Later you'll be asking how to sit down in a chair. I hope this strategy proves profitable for you, but honestly, there are about a bajillion pages that outrank you for your questions, all of them with much better quality content than the answers here."
Another one: (name withheld, good of heart)
"Google it an you will find thousands of in-depth answers/ mathematics explaining it."
Darn it! There was another really, really snotty answer by Hubber MickS, but when I went back to retrieve it, my deletion of it had already become permanent and it was already totally gone. So..., be advised that:
There is no 24-hour, change-your-mind window when you delete an answer. It becomes permanent and irretrievably gone almost immediately.
This led to another discovery. When I went looking for it in google cache, it was already gone from there as well. So that apparently means that:
Google is indeed vociferously indexing and re-indexing our questions and answers.
My final observation:
Way over 90% of the answers I have received were positive, professional, and the kinds of answers that Google will love. As far as I'm concerned, this new Q&A endeavor has real potential!!!
It would be nice to be able to go back and delete or unpublish an earlier question. I don't like a couple of the first ones I asked, before I really knew what happened to a question.
You can delete questions you asked by clicking the "delete" button on the question page.
Well, that makes sense, duh--if there was one. There just isn't anything like that on my Q Stats or Your Q pages. Furthermore, I am presently seeing only a single question--the one that someone closed--but I have previously seen my other 40+ questions. So what's your next hint?
You can delete your questions by visiting the page of the question and pressing the "delete" button on the top of the page. For example, if you wanted to delete your question "How can I find a list of all HubMob topics?" you would have to go to
http://howards.hubpages.com/question/10 … mob-topics
And then press the "delete" button at the top of the page.
I noticed this and am very thankful! Sometimes I type so fast I believe I've got it right when I've got it wrong.
Thanks for doing this. One of the first questions I asked had a typo and I only realized after I submitted it. I had to answer the question to explain what I really meant.
