Many of my old hub buddies here have disappeared off the forums in the last month or so.
I understand many of them are trying to catch up after the Google Gnash, but where the hell are the rest of you?
Did you all get high paying jobs? Have you decided many of the forums are boring your backside off? Have you stopped posting to write more hubs? Are the forums boring your backside off? Is it getting harder to find the time? Are the forums boring your......
Ya gotta drop by and let me know your still alive guys n gals!
I really have haven't I? I was gonna ask just curious for some help, but shes just curious, I thought of talking to Habee, but I think I owe her 14 chickens, Haunty undersold me on my own hub, (and made better jokes than I did ..... the pig!) Baileybear is making mutiny mumblings about goin out on his own,
earnestshub, you're not the only one who has noticed the disappearence of forum posters. Rafinf has also asked "Where did everyone go?" Maybe it's alien abductions or boredom or maybe something more sinister. Maybe we should send out search parties. I just love a good party.
You know Earnest, I wondered that too myself. however, I guess with the recent panda hit, and how some of the writers that joined have moved on to other things, I think forums has died down significantly. Heck, I'm starting to think the only topics people are interested in forums is either political, religions or just ways to increase traffic. Hopefully, with hubpages changes, it'll spark more activity back into hubpages. Then again, I've been wrong before. However, it's good to see you're still with us though, as I know this place wouldn't be the same without you buddy.
The forums are quieter because many active and interesting people have gone for a variety of reasons from those like Misha who apparently make their living working the Google system legally and successfully, but in a way that is not compatible with HP - to those who jumped ship in response to the first rude email and shockingly unpublished hub.
There are just us boring people left now.
Some are too scared to post anything interesting in the current climate of unexplained bannings and hub-witch-hunting, some are just p!!ssed off and sulking. The religious kids are keeping quiet hoping that their huge mass of hubs, of mostly duplicate content, will be left alone to slip by on the tails of the religious advertisers (HP revenue). Some of the paid political spammers seem to have been shut down which is good for this site, as is getting rid of a few trolls.
The remainder are either @$$licking goody two shoe management support drones, arrogant @$$holes who refuse to stop attacking the blatant holes in the whole approach of HP to the Panda. An approach that is blatantly mixed with turning this site from the revenue sharing site that we joined, with revenue sharing TOS, into a revenue base for HP. Changing the TOS to the extent that has been done is not within the scope of 'adjustment' it is changing the whole basis of the original agreement, under cover of the Panda reaction.
The most fabulous thunderstorm passing over here right now with continuous thunder and lightening and rain so heavy I can't see the buildings a couple of hundred yards away. Whooohoo! going off line now just in case
I am still around Earnest, I have myself a new lady whom takes up alot of my time at the mo.
I haven't written much in the way of Hubs at all over the last few weeks, but having a cunning plan to return. I also check the forums almost daily just to see what everyone is (saying) up to. The mighty Carlton Blues are doing better than expected in the footy as well, woot.
Hope life is treating you and the family well Earnest!
I was just looking at the titles of the threads for the forums and was immediately struck by the large number of religious topics, many of which have God in the title. I am just wondering why there are so many religious...
I've just been to another farewell hub and it's sad. I just want to let all my friends who have decided to linger know that I'm still here. Though lately I've been nowhere in sight, I promise to not go away - even if...
... administer the forums?I asked a similar question in a poll in a recent Hub and though I had many views I didn't get many votes. Now I wonder are people afraid of the consequences if they post their votes or their...
I am surprised. I yesterday posted this topic 'Can Science explain everything?'. This hubber came out and gave me some answers. Now as I have provided him some reasons, he hot hurt and started to post nasty personal...
I'm just wondering... I've only been on HubPages a few short weeks, but I've noticed from the Forums and the Religious section that it seems like the majority of people on here seem to be anti-Christian. I just recently...
