Are you satisfied, dissatisfied, very dissatisfied, or just do not let the changes hubpages has made bother you?
The changes don't seem to be making much difference where it counts.
I think getting rid of poor quality hubs is a good idea. Some of the other ideas I'm not so sure about. The idling hubs seems to have just brought Hubpage traffic down and doesn't seem to have helped the traffic any.
I think HP is very professional in all that they do. I have learned so much from them, and my hub views and earnings have only increased. Though I didn't come to HP to earn a "living," it is nice to get a few extra dollars each month. With that being said, I've written for other sites, and I have to say HP is the BEST. I like the fact that they want a quality site with quality writers and do everything they can to help us be the best writers we can be.
Abby, what about poetry? With the "new" changes, poetry is a thing of the past.
I think what you say, Abby, was certainly true and felt in the past.... but I think many of us are feeling maybe the goalposts changed and confidence is ebbing......
My answer is a simple "no." None of the changes HP has made has helped my views. The changes have only resulted in my views dropping.
But I missed most of the initial teeth-gnashing and lamentations back in early 2011, as I'd been inactive on the site for some years, so I've only really settled in during the Panda phase of HP.
I find HP filters easier to deal with now than six years ago, when I was so frustrated that I left for a few years.

I was just wondering, if you read a well written hub but it was something controversial that had a different opinion than you had, would you rate it thumbs down because of that or would you rate it on the hub itself (...

When I joined Hubpages I had written a few articles, half a sitcom, a few short stories and 30,000 words of a novel.The level of expertise and craft of some hubbers leads me to believe they were accomplished writers...

Awhile back the team started unfeaturing articles due to lack of traffic. Many here think this is a bad idea, and I agree. Doing this upsets many writers and has nothing to do with quality or how Google...

Is there a possibility we could have a new feature that would only allow Hubpage members with profiles to send emails? I think this might cut down on the amount of spam we are currently receiving from unverified...
