I've been hubbing for around two months now (that is, removing the months of inactivity) and what I've noticed is that when you ask a question, only a few answer with a really helpful one.
I've posted five, maybe six questions and all of them have answers that are almost useless. Not spam, however, still useless.
If it is possible, we can like add a thumbs up or thumbs down to forum replies, so that people won't post just for the hubscore, but to actually add value to the forums. What do you think hubbers? Maybe the developers can do something about this, too. (Like what they did with enabling floating the text capsules to the right -- me like.)
Good point, great Hub about (Enter Subject here). I gave you a "Thumbs Up" and am now following you. I would appreciate if you did the same for me.
Actually, your post brings up a good point. There are so many empty comments from folks trying to increase Hub Scores. Do you think the developers are listening?
Hey Kap, nice to meet you.
I'm sorry, what was the question?
had to buddy come on
Or what about we just believe in lepracauns and run around saying how do you do!!
I don't think forums posts should be rated as most of it is fun or serious discussion and it's the hubpages that make the site really.
my hubscore always goes down after being active in the forums.
At least one of the questions (threads) you posted was clear as mud. You got pretty good answers, anyway. Your arrogance in posting now is revealing.
"You take the good, you take the bad, you take them both and then you have...."
All posts add value. It's up to the reader to determine what that value is.
If possible I always leave as informative and in depth comment as possible or otherwise refer the questioner to a hub that covers the topic. Sorry if I missed your questions.
I know Marisa Wright generally leaves great answers on any questions she visits.
I believe on Youtube, the answers are ranked and then the answers are sorted with the highest ranking at the very top.
Something to consider - the better the answer - it would only be fair to give a higher recognition.
Would save us allot of time on the forum and be able to hit the hard answers fast and furious - possibly a quicker way to learn the ropes.
Additionally, the answers that are given thumbs down still exist but you must click to view - they are hidden initially.

I seem to hover between an author score of 92 and 95 generally. Anyone know how to break 95?

My author score is now 88. I've been active on the forums, hopping hubs, and answering questions. I haven't had this low of score since when I first started. Does removing poorly performing hubs cause author scores to...

Just curious why my author score is dropping....My first few hubs were basically promotional and shorter and I had a score of 79. It has dropped to 67 as of today after a new hub I put up that was not promotional and...

I'm finding it difficult to reach 100 hayz, my highest so far was 99 few weeks ago, and last week 98, now I'm stuck with 94-96. When I posts hubs sprinkled with research my author score gets hurt and wounded but we need...
