Question? Do you always remember to Rate a Hub Up if you feel it deserves it? Oftentimes I read other hubbers and will comment .. but find I forget to rate. UGH! Wondering if the RATE could be put in a more prominant place. What do you think?
I always rate up a hub that I consider valuable. If it is of great interest to me, then I bookmark it and come back again!
Hi, because I am new here, I think it is important to rate what is read as it encourages or gives feedback to those of us who are not sure if anyone is out there yet and gives a sense of well being to begin with anyhow. I have read some wonderful stuff here, it is a great arena for sharing. I have been rating everything I enjoyed upwards of course and I guess that is the whole idea of having exposure to others, to be rated and become part of this family here.
I will usually read the Hub, rate and leave a comment if it's not a identical comment. Otherwise, I just rate up.
Hi Mekenzie, post to the Suggestion New Feature forum for a better placement of the Rate button. or send a email to our wonderful HP team. I don't think you are alone in forgetting, don't fret.
I agree. I'm ashamed to say sometimes I forget to rate a hub but I leave a comment. However, I never forget to rate when I'm Hub Hopping. It must be the format.
How much of an effect does the up rating have on hubscore?
I always rate them up, it has become part of reading a hub, sometimes I don't, but most of the time I do unless it doesn't hold my attention.
I really don't think that rating up or down impacts anything, other than a false sense of community contribution. For example, Google and any other SE's algorithm is obviously oblivious to your Hubscore and/or Author Score, etc. Besides, Hub Scores/Author Scores are not even noteworthy, as some of the worst crap I've seen on here...has come from high-scored Hub Members. Seriously, though... LOL!
I have to agree with you about the hubscores of some high rating authors. I have read some hubbers articles that do not flow easily and are filled with grammatical and spelling errors ... yet they have a 95 hubscore. It does make me wonder too.

Dear HubTeam:I know there have been a few forum threads about this topic, but hear me out please. By the way, this thread refers to the rating down of hubs, not flagging. I have no problem with the flagging feature and...

Hello guys. I want to try a sort of game similar to one I've tried before. Here's how it will work. You will leave a reply and link to any hub of the previous hubber. Then, in that hub, you will...

I won’t vote thumbs down, I feel the person had worked hard on that hub, and just because I don’t care for it, doesn’t mean it’s not a quality hub. On the ones I like I will vote a thumbs up and...
