Some of my users ask questions then hide them after they get their answers.

How to block them from hiding their questions?

I am using the userrules plugin for that purpose:

https://github.com/q2apro/q2apro-userrules

Check the comments in the source to know what else it does:

https://github.com/q2apro/q2apro-userrules/blob/master/q2apro-userrules-overrides.php

In case you do not want to use a plugin, you could use an advanced theme and do (UNTESTED):

        function initialize()
        {
            if($this->template=='question')
            {

                if(qa_get_logged_in_level()<QA_USER_LEVEL_EXPERT) {
                    unset($this->content['q_view']['form']['buttons']['hide']);
                }

            }

        }

Thanks again. I looked into your plugin. very helpful
One more thing! How can we do these
1- If the question has received at least one answer the user cannot HIDE it.
2- If the question has received at least one answer the user cannot EDIT it.
by
1 - You get the question id, probably $post['id'], then you query posttype=='A' and  parentid==questionid, if this is >0 then $rules['hideable'] = false;
2 - same as above, then $rules['editable'] = false;
