Be sure to let us know here on the Forum when you've published your first hub. I know you can't link to it, but can you tell us? I don't always see things on my feed, but I can 'share' once I know it's published.
Hark back at you - I just visited, left a comment & voted and tried hard to share. The share button just sat there like, forever. I even got up, left the screen, got a snack and returned. Still no action.
Meanwhile - I like the hub - hadn't thought of the trends in avatars, and it makes perfect sense!
HubPages Staff has publicly stated in another thread that this paradigm search account is unreferred. I really do wish HP would just get rid of the author referral program altogether, especially since they've repeatedly mentioned the possibility over the last 8 years. If they really do want to keep disbursing that extra money to us, why not simply change the overall split for everybody to 65:35 to compensate? That would certainly make for a lot of happy campers around here.
Since you're on top of trends and online publishing, what about hubs about trends in web layout, user interface, usability, visual cues, or anything related to making our online presence more inviting? Those things change & would be interesting!
I was wondering if the registration date is in the account and where? If not, could HP put the registration date there please? Though this is not a bug deal, my profile is saying I joined HP three years ago. I know it...
