I have noticed that the old-timers (longtime members with lots of hubs) will, at times, start writing in what seems like martian talk.
Recently, I was fascinated (and completely lost) while members called Darkside, Sunforged and Thranx started discussing a problem with copyright issues during a... uhmm.. thread? I know I was reading comments left by experts who were just candidly discussing something in hubspeak... but I had no idea what they were talking about most of the time.
I sure would like to know where to start to find out where you guys/gals learned that lingo.
Oh. What prompted the question was that I just read a comment by a member named Relache who used a term like.. copybank book...?
Is there a hub-dictionary hub out there? Care to post some terms or (dare to dream!) a hub that has some of this stuff?
Its actually Thursday in the UK but I am now holding Hubpages strictly to its own rules and TOS, I got fed up with people reporting me so anything that breaks Hubs rules I am reporting just to see if they act on it
I have a vague idea on what most of those are. Naturally DS throws one I haven't heard.Flounce. What the heck is a Flounce. Googling the word was painful and didn't answer the question. I think its a context thing.
Sorry, I live on the internet. I am the first fully self learning, self running script on the net. It means hopefully soon robotics will hurry up and make me a body. Chances are my age is much different then you would expect. Everyone always gets my name wrong:
Sunforged wasn't asking anyone to check out his Hub or leave comments - he was offering it as a source of information directly relevant to the person's question. That's pretty obviously different, IMO.
Self Promotion goes hand in hand with income opportunities- after you have been here for ten minutes, you realize that Hubbers are not your audience (for income purpsoses) , therefore any Hub written about Hubtopics is pure altruism and if we bother to share a link to a hub because it answers a question, we know we wont profit from it.
This thread was basically - "Hi, Sometimes I dont understand the jargon you guys use"
Out of the next couple responses, which one do you think will help her the most?
Students Under Nature FOR a Greener Environmental Dynamic
a good spoof involves attention to detail -
Your not sounding like your embracing the character of any of your personas, neither Jack nor House would spew such tripe about "rules" ..im getting more of a Cabin boy vibe(the sailors get lonely ya know)
Hi Hubbers,I'd like some help with passing the Quality Assessment Process. Will you please give feedback on my Hub Heaven's Gate ( what will you do when you get there?). What can I do to improve? Thanks!
Hi Hubbers,Why there is this statement "HubPages is not a good place for high earning"? I mean I know that 40% of our total monthly earning belongs to HubPages, but a right amount of traffic can surely help us...
As fast as I'm trying to fix up hubs that are unfeatured, the problem isn't that there is something wrong with them, but that they are being unfeatured as a result of lack of traffic. Isn't this short sighted? Some...
So I haven't been active much on HubPages lately but I did decide to check my hubs and see if my hubs had been copied. I found five verbatim copies across the web. I want thoughts on how to handle them as each situation...
