I assume you mean hubber score? No. The hubber score goes up and down. I would assume my worth doesn't go up and down and there's more to me than writing hubs:) Hubscores go up and down a lot more than the hubberscore. I don't understand how either is worked out.
I think you mean Hubberscore, and no I don't. However I'm always surprised how many people do attach great value to it.
It's silly really, because most of our readers have no idea what it means - if they even notice it at all.
I do not consider my worth as a person nor my worth as a writer and researcher to be reflected by such an artificial construct.
My opinion is reinforced daily, when I see that the scores of other writers also do not necessarily reflect in any way the quality of what they have written.
I am an Excellent Writer and I'm Incredibly Sarcastic and Outspoken!
I wouldn't be an Introverted personality for a billion dollars! If introverted people wish to measure me or my worth by such an inaccurate method, then I hope they fill their boots... because I sure as hell read the play...
I love watching my Score plummet every time I say something accurate but without any tact attached to it!
Why would any confident person feel belittled by such a manipulative herding mechanism?
What's wrong with being an introvert? ("Introverted" simply means that you need time on your own to recharge your mental batteries. You can be both outspoken and introverted.)
I LIKE being an introvert. It is really nice not to have to depend on constant reinforcement from other people, whether in the professional or social sphere!
Instead of wasting time on moronic chit-chat, because of being too scared of being in silence or being alone, I can feed my soul with what it needs, without giving a toss what other people might think.
LONG LIVE INTROVERSION
You guys are funny and I knew I would get a bite or two on my post... I appreciate the importance of different personality styles and I'm just as happy spending time alone as I am with others...
I was really digging at the introverted (or was inverted?) footprints all over my experience here - And I was completely right because the moment I ask a question of staff that may be a bit too direct for 'comfort' - someone picks up my accolades and hides them.... or my hubber score drops.. or I find that people that I've followed get unfollowed... or in this case...
I have had 5 of my hubs ripped down... unpublished by a moderator who thought I could do with 27 Idle Hubs and now another 5 Unpublished.... - Amazing!! It must be so funny to do such stuff to people who work hard and hope that they haven't wasted their time! That's what I meant about Inverted!
Hm this is news; I had not noticed the nature of responses reflect in the score. I just thought it was the quantity of responses that reflected in the score.
I love being an introvert. It works really well, since I love being alone. :-)
Hey Vee.....I'm very much a loner, myself.....not a "hermit," which are really 2 different types of individual. I thoroughly enjoy "alone time" and I'm quite comfortable and relaxed being my own best company.. It's a matter of having confidence that our friends and family will always be within reach.....and we don't have to be constantly visible and active in each others lives......I could never and would never rely on a NUMBER/score in any area of my life, to determine my worth. No one thing defines me. I have a huge personal world, and feel valuable in all places of my world.....
Not at all! My hubscore is no way of judging my talents or ability!
Hubscore means very little in the grand scheme of things.
It would be rather small minded to consider it as a measure of who you are.
Doodlehead, I can relate to that. When my score drops below 95, I start to get a bit depressed (especially with the recent plummet in traffic!). My 97 at the moment put a smile on my face lol
I had a 100 hubberscore for the longest time, and now I don't.
Just another of life's little mysteries.
Do I care? In all honesty, no not much. A little bit maybe, not much.
I used to be really extroverted, and I still can be if a situation warrants it. But I much prefer my introversion. I also a misanthrope, so I much prefer being alone. In fact, the only person I don't mind having around all the time is my husband; he's the only person who doesn't irritate me to no end.
I'm really a nice person though
...and everyone replying here is in the 90s.
Those of us with under 90 tend to wonder "what makes them better writers than us?"
kathleenkat---I asked how to jump over the "90" threshold too. All you have to do is expland the variety of things you interact with here. I was doing plenty of comments but few of anything else. By expanding the types of things you are involved with here at HP you will soar into the 90s right away.
It seems during my 2 day absence I have increased above 90s. Interesting.
The Hubberscore probably isn't meant to reflect personal worth, but the largest of changes tend to happen during times that I am not logged in for a couple of days. Really makes me wonder.
Having a hubber score (not hubscore as stated in the question) in the 90s means nothing in terms of writing quality. I've seen some complete rubbish written by 90s rated hubbers.
I would expect there are so many factors involved from internal traffic, search engine traffic, referral traffic, profitability, quality, uniqueness, forum activity, followers,
The main thing to remember is that google recognises your content (if that's your aim) and that makes no difference if you're and 88 or 99
I really don't think it means a whole lot! I write rubbish here and mine is 9x. :p
God created you and He delights in you. You are more valuable to Him than you can imagine. That is where your true worth is, not in some made up number that is pinned upon you by some nonexistent grading system.
The truth is that many people feel like their worth as a "writer" (not necessarily a person) is attached to that score. When I just joined hubpages I used to be obsessed over the score especially when Hubpages had the Best hubber pages that would feature the best hubbers with scores of 100 and so forth. I always thought that to make it on the site I would need to reach one hundred. Hp since took the page down as it was causing a lot of heartache.
As I grew up on HP and gained more confidence and honed my skills as a writer both here and other sites, I realize that the HP number is not about my skill but my participation. The number means very little when it comes to quality work and making money. Not to say it's not important to get noticed but it's not something to spend your energies worrying about.
I say concentrate on making your mark as a writer and forget the hubberscore (unless it falls below 75).
Daughter of Maat....I thought I would never meet another misanthrope.....I think I am one too.
Well said, Cardisa. Score is about participation, meaningful participation.
