If I were to publish a hub that was just bad as in low quality is it likely someone will say, "hey man about that hub... frankly its really crappy." Usually I assume noone will say anything negative unless forced to give a candid opinion but I'm still curious what others think?
I think most of the time people are more likely to comment on someone's opinion than on the quality of the Hub. I think if people run into really horribly low-quality Hubs they may just click away or else vote them down, and move on.
Sometimes it seems like the writers here are engaging in a mutual admiration marathon, but on the whole, I believe people are honest when commenting. If I'm not impressed with a hub, I think about what my opinion would mean to the author. If it's not constructive, I choose not to leave it.
So far I haven't seen it. I've been criticized for my content, but haven't seen anyone say anything negative...except in the Extreme Hub Makeover forum, and then it's a response to someone asking and not a nasty comment.
I didn't mean like a nasty comment. I meant does anyone give a heads up in case someones just oblivious?
You're here for money or for creative writing ? Depending on that answer definition of *crappy hub* will change. Product hubs are often crappy(as in exaggerated) but we all do that to earn money. My experience with serious writing hubs is that they'll earn you no money cause you're getting attention of reader to text but not ads(in this case affiliate links will earn)P:S- I write both type of hubs and i'm trying to improve myself with every hub. I've one high traffic hub where there are no comments at all(but there are clicks).
If you come across a hub that you feel is grossly sub-standard: low quality, low word count (which they would already have been warned about while creating the hub), or just plain awful, you can contact the author privately, via their email, rather than leaving a comment, and politely offer some help.
If after you've looked at a number of their hubs, and their content is consistently awful - and I do mean REALLY awful, or objectionable (and contravenes Hub Pages standards) - then by all means flag it for review. That will bring it to the attention of the Hub Pages team, for review.
We are all responsible to flag hubs that are sub-standard or do not meet the Hub Pages criteria.
I would be inclined to offer help first, though. It simply could be a matter of language, or proofreading.
Hope this helps
I'd like to clarify that this is a hypothetical question. I guess I suffer from the constant fear something I'm doing is just crap and noone is willing to tell me.
as for skyfires question I was referring to crapiness in a won't-make-any-money sort of way. though I'm pretty sure a hub designed for income that wasn't even good at that would artistically be in the crapper as well.

Who made the 30 hubs in 30 days challenge? I see a lot of really crapy hubs with little information or information that is already known to the general public. Is there some advantage in taking up alot of web space?
