How many Hubbers use the material gained from HubPages forums to write Hubs?
For me, the forums are a sideline, an additional amusement on HP--not the source for my hub material. I can get to know HP contributors by reading what they write, but I prefer to launch my own topics, for whatever they're worth.
It could theoretically be a great research tool.
Use the hubbers as your sample population
see what topics and trends are most popular
aggregate the most intelligent comments and links into a hub
It doesnt mean your trying to get hubbased traffic, just an easy way to see whats popular
But in answer to your question, never.
There are a lot of great things brought up in the forums but I write for whatever is going to bring me the money.
I should spend more times in the forums but being a marketer for me is a full time job along will all the other daily activities going on.

Is the growth sustainable? When I arrived 4 months ago, we had 400,000 hubs. What is it now, 500,000? Does this site really benefit from people writing almost identical hubs on the same topics?When somebody arrives they...

As jimmythejock was quick to pick up on a few days ago (man, he's good!), we have been working hard on coming up with a new overall look and feel for HubPages and in the process we've also added a few cool, new features...
