Experiencing the same.

This is terrible! How can Hubpages screw up my life with such devastatingly sloppy programming? I shall rant on about this for weeks while explaining how important I am in Hollywood. I hope hubpages staff realise this significant error may destoy my successful business empire!
Ops sorry - was briefly channelling another hubber but am OK now.
I was just about to add this then saw it's already here...
This is from staff member Simone Smith's profile
"Last seen 43 minutes ago days ago."
I saw a new profile of someone here 5 days and the hubs all have over 700 accolades of beautiful, helpful, etc. The hubber score is below 30. ??
In addition to the odd and ungrammatical "last seen" text, I question how the time is calculated. I presume it's from when I was last signed in to HP. But if I am currently signed in, as I am when I'm writing this, shouldn't the message be "online now" or something similar? And as I've said in another thread, the phrase "Last seen" itself is a bit odd. Personally I don't see the value of this particular bit of information anyway, but if it is going to be displayed, it should be meaningful and accurate.
A very minor related issue that probably applies to only a tiny fraction of HP members: If you've changed your location since joining HP, the first statement under your name won't be accurate either. The "joined" calculation and the location are now combined in one sentence, instead of being listed as separate pieces of information as they were on the old profile. I recently moved from New Jersey to the Washington DC area, so I am now from the latter location but I didn't join from here. I guess it doesn't matter, but as it now reads it's not correct.
I'm curious: what do you find to be ungrammatical about the passive voice? It may not "be preferred" (N.B. ) in strong writing, but it does have its own special grammatical place in the language, even in good writing. Is your objection the lack of parallelism in the verb forms? "Joined" - active; [is] "from" - complement of copula; "seen" - passive.
Agreed. HP needs to add a semicolon after the "joined" information.

On my profile page, right under my name on the line that says when I joined and from where, there is another statistic that is usually wrong, and it has been that way since I first noticed it months ago. For example,...

I've come across several links in the last few days where the "hubpages" has been completely removed from the link making it a dead end. I've fixed a few already but I'm sure I'm not the only one.I originally...

Hi,Hi,I keep getting the message that my hubs could be featured, but no matter how often I change them, they never are. I keep getting told that they may contain "spammy elements" but I'm not sure what these...

What does it mean on my profile page when it says below the title of each hub "5 days ago" on 45 hours ago", etc.? Does it mean when it was created, last edited, viewed, commented upon or what?
