"Levels" of hubpages users

  1. WeddingConsultant profile image69
    WeddingConsultantposted 9 years ago

    I've gathered that once you hit over a certain number of hubs you progress to a certain level in your status.

    First there's prodigy,
    then there's expert.
    After expert, there is all star,
    and then there's "hall of fame"

    Anyone know (roughly) how many hubs one has to write to progress through these ranks?  I believe to be in the hall of fame you need something like 250-300, and to be an all star you need to have 100+ hubs.  What's the number of hubs to become an expert?

    I'm also not sure of the different factors that help determine the "move" from one level to the next or if there are any other factors apart from published hubs.

      People just want their butts wiped for them.

      (or at least that's how my Dad might answer that question)

    Thanks Mark.  I was looking everywhere for it but couldn't find it, so I posted here.

    I knew someone helpful would come along... cool

    How much should we charge for wiping other people's butts?  $75 per wipe, or for the whole job?

    Maybe $75 for a decent job, but $90 for a good cleaning?

  7. Misha profile image74

    I'm just going to set up a bidet and charge $5 per use!  It's much more efficient.

      Yes, and it's really annoying big_smile

  11. WeddingConsultant profile image69
    WeddingConsultantposted 9 years ago

    It's equally annoying to type out the html for those five colored letters...

    But I must confess, I wish more people would use some color to spice up the threads and make them more reader-friendly, within reason.

  12. Mark Knowles profile image61
    Mark Knowlesposted 9 years ago

    Well, it's OK to annoy yourself but........ big_smile big_smile Just in case you think I'm not joking, I added another smilie. No extra charge.

    Oh now that's a cool color gamer, which one is that?

    I wonder if hubpages recognizes all those obscure crayola colors out there such as bittersweet and
    Asparagus

  16. gamergirl profile image60

    Well, I actually used hex code tongue

    #994774 is the one I used.  Here is #958462:

        Much better.... and less annoying.

        Slow day at work? big_smile

  17. Mark Knowles profile image61
    Mark Knowlesposted 9 years ago

    Which reminds me of the revolting "macaroni and cheese" color crayola crayon. Why you people eat that, I have never understood. Cheese flavored food product. * shudders *

  18. gamergirl profile image60
    gamergirlposted 9 years ago

    Mark,

    What about fully made from scratch macaroni and cheese?  I have a recipe for cheesy macaroni noodles (noodles made with just a hint of goat cheese) which would go great with a provolone sauce, would you eat that?


    ***Gamergirl loves playing with color codes!

    Some of these aren't random.  The fruitcake color is one of my favorite colors to use for coloring khakis in photoshop.  The darker magenta-ish color is one that is -GREAT- for adding depth and realism to skin tones.  Mind you, there are some adjustments for opacity, but yeah..

    Maybe I should write a hub about using Photoshop to colorize images.

    Or.. I could write an e-book about it and sell it fro 23.99!

    hehe

  21. WeddingConsultant profile image69
    WeddingConsultantposted 9 years ago

    haha yes, slow day at work.  Waiting for baby to come...
    Once that happens, I'll fall off the face of the earth for a bit.

    But I'm sure a baby will cause me to evolve into a better person. wink

    1. Mark Knowles profile image61

      I heard there was no such thing as evolution. Can't remember where I heard it though wink

        WeddingConsultantposted 9 years ago in reply to this

        No, i'm pretty sure I read something about it on that...oh I don't know...something like 1022 reply thread.

        I could be wrong though.

    WeddingConsultantposted 9 years ago

    Peter, we're all evolving.  Go back and read the 1022 replies on the thread! haha that would take months.

    Speaking of babies, how are you and your wife coming along?  You're pretty much in the same boat as us with the daughter-on-the-way thing.

  24. Peter M. Lopez profile image89

    Due in July.  All is going well.  The doctor says ours will be a little girl too.  Our short list of names:

    Libby
    Gracie
    Lexie

    I need to go back and reread my baby names hub to see if we are breaking any of the rules big_smile

    1. Mark Knowles profile image61
      Mark Knowlesposted 9 years ago in reply to this

      There are rules for baby names now?

        I had no idea the "P" in Mark P. Knowles stood for Peter.  Excellent name.

  25. gamergirl profile image60
    gamergirlposted 9 years ago

    Yes.

    No baby should ever be named Mark ever again.  We've got the best Mark here on HP.  wink

  29. Stacie Naczelnik profile image74
    Stacie Naczelnikposted 9 years ago

    I vote for Gracie.

    And, for the record, I only eat homemade, real mac & cheese.  None of that nasty colored stuff out of a box for me.

    Charlotte, you should write a HUB on photoshop stuff for me.  Because it is all about me.  Seriously, though, I just had it installed on my computer at work, but I'm still quite green using it.

    1. WeddingConsultant profile image69
      WeddingConsultantposted 9 years ago in reply to this

      Have fun figuring it out!  It's very powerful but also quite confusing!

    2. Peter M. Lopez profile image89
      Peter M. Lopezposted 9 years ago in reply to this

      Thank you.  It's in the top 3.  In any event, we do like Grace as a middle name for either of the other 2, so I suspect it will make it into her name somehow.

  30. gamergirl profile image60

    Hmmmm... maybe I will!

  31. gamergirl profile image60

    It isn't confusing!  There's just a process to it.

    Oh good - let me jump in on the thread.  (1) Peter, I like all names.  I have a friend whose daughter's name is Gracie and she is adorable.  Its a good name.  I also like Lexie.  I could see myself as a "Lexie."  smile  (2) Charlotte - yes.  A hub on photoshop, (or 15 - LOL).

    I will pass all of this info along to the decision maker, but she is determined not to decide on a name until she sees little "blank", and then give her the name that she looks like.  So...

    1. WeddingConsultant profile image69
      WeddingConsultantposted 9 years ago in reply to this

      Oh how brave of her to wait like that.  At least this way you won't be stuck with a girl's name only to find out that a little something didn't show up on the sonogram!

          Fortunately, I believe we have a boy's name picked out...for the time being.  Of course, I though we had a girl's a long time ago (and then again, and again), but...

    The Doc did say there was no money-back guarantee on girls, boys yes, but girls no.  He told us to keep the receipts.

  37. gamergirl profile image60
    gamergirlposted 9 years ago

    I have totally picked out my baby's names already, mostly out of my own high level of hope that I'll actually have them.

    My daughter will be Augustine Anne, and my son will be Alfred Morgan.  Funny story, Anne is the middle name that has been passed down from my grandmother to my mom, and from my mom to me.  On my maternal grandfather's side, the men in my family about six generations back used to swap names from eldest son to eldest son.

        Why would there be flaming?  This is a perfectly light-hearted thread about babies, the wonder of color, and how awesome women are.
