Has the idea bank been retired? I often used it for inspiration for hubs but lately it hasn't been working for me.
I don't know about the idea bank, what it is. If you think it was a good idea, can we start it up again?
I never heard of an Idea Bank on HubPages. One good place to get ideas, though, is in the Q&A section. There are lots of good questions asked there that often inspire someone to write a hub about it. There is even a button that says something like "write a hub about it". The Q&A is a good place to get ideas.
That feature's been gone at least 2 years. Shame, as I used it and got some very profitable hubs out of it!
From what I've heard on here, the idea bank didn't really work very well and was done away with. The topics were supposed to be topics that might be expected to do well in searches; but (personal opinion, but I don't think a lone opinion on this) the ideas were kind of awful (well, at least a lot of them were). (lol)
In any case, yes - they're retired.
At first it was actually a good idea, but then the feature wasn't kept up as something useful, so it's actually much better it's gone now.
Thank you for all your replies. I just wanted to know if it still existed and maybe had been moved to another part of HP. It was a good idea even though some of the suggested topics were a bit weird or absurd, but I think with some work it could have been a great asset to us writers.

Why would Hub allow a question like the one below to be asked? The e-mail came to me as a REQUEST by a fellow Hubber. This person (moslemshit) has written NO Hubs and has No followers. I do not think this is proper for...

Can you all please bring back the idea Bank. I for one used it a lot and would like to see it come back. It was one of the best tools you all had here. Thanks.

I've seen this 30 day challenge thing and it sounds like a great idea, but how on earth do you think of so many things to write about? I thought it'd be interesting to see what kinds of things help people come up with...
