Should the rules for asking or answering questions be ammended because they are now being hosted on our subdomains? Someone asked a question which was generating a discussion(in my opinion) and I suggested the person remove the question before staff sees it. Someone suggested and implied that the question is now hosted on the person's subdomain so it did matter or that the rules would not apply.
Have the rules changed concerning hosted questions and if not should they be?
Seems to me that any non-tacky question that generates answers is a good thing. Outside visitors like that, therefor google would like that, therefor adsense would like that, therefor money to be made, therefor total win-win, therefor everybody happy.
Doesn't HP state that a question that generates a discussion is violating their TOS? and that discussions should be limited to the forums?
Of course a question that gets a lot of answers is great but so long as people come back to post or the person asking the question return to post it is a discussion.
I think HP should have only 2 rules.
A. Does the question violate TOS re: drugs, violence, gambling, etc.?
If doesn't violate TOS, then:
B. Does the question generate or have the potential to generate outside traffic?
If yes, then:
Leave the critter alone.
If no, then:
Moderate it with explanation so that question can be rewritten with better potential.
The rules on asking questions have been amended. There's now a pop-up that runs down the new guidelines when you go to ask a question.
I think she means the text at right that disappears when you click outside the question box.
Yep - I noticed that after I responded - then I deleted my forum post - of course you were too quick and managed to reply to my post before it disappeared!
I went and looked.
Totally reasonable! Couldn't ask for better!
I would have copied it here for reference, but every time I tried, it de-popped.
There is nothing there about having a discussion in the question and answer area. I now assume that HP is allowing that. It disappeared quite quickly too.

When I look at the questions section of hubpages I see pages and pages of silly questions. A lot of the time, when I click on "unanswered" or "latest" I see that the same person has asked ten or so questions in a row. I suspect that in most cases this is because of the fact that...

Why are there so many questions that directly violate the rules of asking questions?To be more specific, all of these "personal" questions and such that are suppose to be directed to the forums for polls and votes. Am I misunderstanding the rules, or are they just not being flagged?...

When asking questions on HubPages, do you post "thanks" or replies to people"s answers?With the changes to the Q&A section of HubPages, I was wondering what the question etiquette is.

Why do we have daily limits of questions that we can ask on Hub Pages?I get cut off after a while from asking questions. I ask question nto necessarily because I don't know the answers, but to sees how others differ in their response. Why limit the number of Questions!
