Long time Hubbers, do you remember ?

    About a year ago there was a term floating around on HubPages (and it even came in the newsletter) - I can't remember the exact term or phrase and hoping someone could help me out?

    There was talk about building something like a hubMob, but of all your own HubPages centered around the same topic or key phrase. If I recall correctly, it had to be at least 10 hubs on said topic. Then you made a (Hub something) where all the Hubs were profiled on one page, almost like a landing/home page.

    Lissie kind of did it with her 'Lissie on HubPages' Hub...Does anyone remember what that was called and if yes, has anyone tried it?

    Capstones program. It's still available... Let me see if I can find the page.

    I'm not a long-time hubber by any means, but I've been considering doing one.

      Thank you so much! Wow, I'm surprised you know about it... did you find it by browsing info about HubPages?

      Thanks again.

    I found it browsing through hubs. It was referenced in a hub I read but I can't remember who wrote it, nor could I find it when I looked through my bookmarks. Very odd. I did a Google search for the name of the program.

    I guess that's just evidence of how much it pays to visit hubs by other people and get involved in the community, you know?

    I hope the HP team is listening! It is very difficult to find the information on some features of HubPages. I'm thinking of the Capstone and Flagship programs, and also the feature where you get a montage of Hubber photos and can click on any photo to see one of their Hubs.

      That I haven't heard about.  I know the one EM links to, but not the photos. Do you know where that one is?  I'm assuming not.  It is tricky to find some stuff.

    @ Everyday Miracles - I've watched HubPages come a long way. I really wish I had more time to participate in the community and even create more Hubs, but right now, especially with 2 young children, I don't. But yes, getting involved with the community is a big factor with HubPages - it's a great community and that's why I came to the forum to post my question! smile (by the way, love your profile name)

    @ Marisa Wright - Often times I search for Hubs or things on HubPages that I found before and all of a sudden can't find (I like the new bookmark feature for that exact reason). They do need a better way to organize things, but I'm not complaining at all because I do see an active effort to grow and adapt to our needs.

    @ JYOTI KOTHARI - thanks for clearing up the # of Hubs needed, for some reason I recalled 10, but I was wrong

    Thank you, belief713. I have one small child and I have to work things out so that I have time to write. Thankfully she's in low-maintenance mode right now and it's easier. I will disappear when she becomes high needs again, because she cycles like that.

    I had forgotten the name of the Flagship program. I'm glad to have been reminded. And I agree that these are incredibly difficult to find information on. I have been lucky to browse through hubs written by more experienced hubbers and to find links to them there.

    Unless HP for some reason doesn't want us to write Capstone hubs or Flagship hubs, then I think these programs should be easier to find!

      I completely understand the cycles! My youngest is going through a high-maintenance cycle now. Just sent them off with grandma! LOL

      I remembered the flagship, but capstone didn't stick. I think HubPages prefers all of us to try to model the flagship hubs as it benefits us all - it will make for a better site and content, and (should) reflect higher earnings. And of course the search engines (supposedly) love it.
