Just to put my two cents worth in - I really dislike the way our "avatar and info block" is now displayed. The name, followers and hub info is now below the picture, making it look messy and disorganized - harder to read.
My info is not below in the forum posts nor on my profile page or hubs.
Seems the "add to bookmarks" has disappeared for me. I don't recall an upgrade or replacement mentioned for this feature.
The only thing that I have seen change is that the hubber score is now half on and half off of the avatar. Different, but not bad.
personally, i think it stands out better half on half off and the new "elite" status is easily recognizable. Can I ask what your working on to make you "elite" status ?
My apologies, Jason, Maddie, Fawntia, Paul, et al for my comments about the Hub profile display...
Having spent the last almost two days sorting out my laptop, I must
eat crow. I have finally had to remove two rather useful (and one not so useful) but really cumbersome programs from my puter.
In retaliation, they made a complete mess of all my settings and then locked up the display in flicker mode (don't ask) and crashed my machine completely. It has taken two days to sort it all out. I still need to do some work, but at least it's functional at last.
Things had been a bit weird for the last week in browser-land, with Wednesday afternoon and Thursday morning being the worst - strange looking displays, things displaying in the wrong places, weird fonts, things taking forever to load and shut down, etc., etc. I now realize this was caused by the programs misbehaving, and had nothing to do with Hub Pages.
Silly, silly me!
Computer problems? Tell me about it! LOL
Been getting BSODs every 3/4 hours since the summer, finally became every half hour or so. Uninstalled all my drivers in Device Manager. Reinstalled them. Did them all one by one, with a reboot in between which took hours.
Computer hangs at startup.
Problem sorted for approx 24 hours.
Repeat whole process.
Phoned my mother and ask her to post the disks that came with comp. Got them a week later, but DVD drive has packed up and won't play them.
All last night I could only get into Safe Mode, then it told me there was no Restore Point to restore to. What??
Six attempts later and it gave me a restore point from last week. Used that. Got back into computer, signed on, then disk crashed again.
Went to Town Hall today and used their computers to copy the start-up disks over to pen drive, but computer won't boot from pen drive even after restting the BIOS.
Just as well because when I had a good look at the files there is only an option to do a clean reinstall of Vista, no repair option.
Not that I know what is wrong.
Ran driver verifier and asked it to look for pre-Vista drivers.
It found one from a program I'd already uninstalled.
Renamed the driver so Windows will ignore it.
Downloaded Trojan remover on 30 day trial. I used to be a beta tester - considering email the guy to see if he needs more testers LOL.
No Trojans. Didn't think there was with AVG , Super Anti-spyware and Malwarebytes all running.
Am now running with all bar one of my start-up options in msconfig disabled. No more crashes but it took a year and a half to boot into windows.
Laptop gets very hot, I sit it on 4 blocks to encourage airflow underneath. This could be the problem.
However just to be on the safe side I stripped the whole thing down and dusted out the fan.
Anyway what did someone say about huijacking threads?
BTW, this is a dual core processor with 3Gbs of RAM and a 340Gb HDD and it's only 3 months out of warranty.

While I see that it is possible to click on an option to only display hubs by specific subcategories on the profile page, I think that it could be beneficial to implement a system where each category is clearly...
