    I wondered what it was so tried it ! I rated a lot of articles up , it was fun, just wondered if others do it much ?

      Hard to imagine rating a lot up - it must have been an unsual day or time.  Most of what I find there is either actionable (flag as spam etc,) or depressingly poor quality.  I typically can't take very much of it - only once in a great while do I see something worth giving a rating.

          Yeah, I'm sure it varies.  I'm not saying I have never found good articles there - I absolutely have.  I'm just saying that it can be a bit depressing moving through all the very poor but not quite bad enough to flag stuff.

      Yes, I love it.  I like to take the opportunity to help my fellow hubbers.

    I do it every couple of days. It gets me reading hubs and finding hubbers I might not have otherwise. I like it! smile

    I hop occasionally. It's a pretty cool feature...gets me reading other people's stuff. smile

    I do hubhopping once in a while - I think I will plan to start hubhopping once per week...then if that's fun, maybe a few times per week. I've liked much of the text I've seen so far.

    Yes, I do.  It affords me the opportunity to see quickly what other hubbers are writing about.  I have found some really good hubs through hopping smile

    I rarely hubhop, but I know I should do more. Every time I think about hubhopping I decide that my time would be better spent backlinking or writing.

    Perhaps I'll try to hubhop at least once a week as well.

    I give it a go when I get a chance, I usually get fed up after about 10 hubs, every now and then you find a good writer but it takes some trawling.

      Ok just hopped about 16 hubs, managed to vote up 2, 8 of no interest to me, commented on 1 and other 5 sad

    I hubhop every other day to check out new articles in the mix, some are good and some are not so good. It is a great way to rank good and bad articles in HP in my opinion.

    I hubhop when I have spare time.  It's kind of like Russian Roulette, you never really know what you are going to get in there.
    It's good because it is an easy way to be introduced to other hubbers and their writings that I might not have found otherwise.
    It can be aggravating at times, though, when there are an abundance of hubs that are poorly written, just plain spam or inappropriate, or are on topics that just do not interest me.
    Either way I like the feature and am glad it was installed.

    I did it a couple of times when it first was added, but like most of the posters here, found it sub-quality and of little interest.  Lotsa spam, too.

    Nope... There's never anything really worth reading, most of the hubs in the hub hopper are short and spammy, which isn't worth my time. I'd rather spend time reading new hubs by hubbers that I like and know write quality stuff, versus spend my time fishing through the crap for the good.

    I think it was an interesting idea, but a waste. I hate to say it, but I think it was a waste of man-power to design, when there are plenty of other things to spend a programmer's time on.

      I guess I havent found hub hopping...but I do go to the hubbers and start with patty and work my way down...tend to stay in the high numbers because of the quality...I like seeing what others are writing

    I don't hub-hop as much as I used to, but occasionally I will roll the dice in hopes of finding someone new who is worthwhile.  Most of the time if I'm looking for someone new to read, however, I will just look in the comments field of someone I follow for an insightful response.

    I often Hub hop after I write a Hub, I find it fairly fun to find out what someone was writeing about at the moment. normally Ido have to rate a few down, and they're sometimes on a subject that has quite a bit of potential too. It helps with Hubpages' credibility so I do my part....we wouldn't want people comeing across this website and not taking it seriously due to finding low quality hubs that should be taken down, so in my opinion I don't think was a total waste like you said Whitney, but that's your opinion and I can't change people's opinions.
