Hi! Hubbing is great, plus writing and reading can be equally rewarding. Will you ever incorporate an arrow for the first page, and an arrow for the last page. With so many hubs, writers, and topics, it would be great to have a box to place a page number in, so you can be brought to a specific page. For example, I'd like to read more 52's or 78's. It's hubbing made easier. A change in software would be required, but in the long run it could pay off. Thanks for your help. Any suggestions? Ibber55
??? You want to read 52's? What is a 52?
An arrow for the first page? The first page of what? The first hub ever written?
I'm lost as to what you refer to. Understand that each and every hub is a complete, stand-alone article. While a few hubbers have written a series of hubs on one subject that, hopefully, visitors will navigate through the whole series each hub is still a stand-alone article and series such as this are fairly rare anyway.
A little more information, please. It sounds like you are looking for something that doesn't exist and won't as it makes no sense on HubPages.
Thank God our numbers are arbitrary, because you got a 95, and I can't see how. Joining in, and hubbing, is often suggested on the site. The pages start off with people in the 100's and proceed to the lowest numbers. It seems you're just being a jerk. If you dont know what a 52 or a 78, as an example, then you don't get. Maybe you're ignorant. The Hubbers button is presented at the top of the home page. You haven't really caught on very well have you. If you did your homework you would know what I meant. Examples are hardly ever included in the thesis. None of my articles stand alone. If that were true, I'd be showing one single hub on my profile page.
I must be a jerk too because I didn't understand your original question either. You never mentioned the hubbers button in it, did you?
Even then, it doesn't make a lot of sense. Each to his own I suppose.
Ibber55, you've been here 7 weeks.
Many of the people in this thread have been here over a year and have made hundreds or thousands of dollars from this site. And most of them are aware that hub and author scores are close to meaningless when it comes to earning money or getting serious traffic.
Plus it would be silly to be able to see all the hubs that have scores of 55. Why? Because I have hubs that are a year old and still range anywhere from 75-95 in just a 48 hour period. Just because a hub has that score now doesn't mean it will tomorrow.
There are many people who don't interact with the site in any way but still earn plenty of cash. It's not mandatory to participate on the site.
People can find all your hubs on your profile page if they click on more.. Yes, but as you say it may be helpful to be able to go to a particular hub.. But may be groups or categories can be mentioned and the reader can click on them to read more hubs easily especially when a hubber has too many hubs to browse through.
May be you should post the suggestion on the report a problem or suggest a new feature..that would be helpful I guess .
Have you pressed the Hubbers button to read, and follow other people. I may be new, but I've seen the suggestion to press the Hubbers button several times in order to help out. It starts at 100 and goes numerically down the line all the way to the lowest number. Id like to pick a page, not a profile. There are 210,000 people. Thanks for your response.
There is a forum specifically for suggesting new features. I will request that the moderators move this discussion there.
The OP is an educated man, apparently. Seems chemistry between himself and Wilderness, who is also an educated man to say the least, wasn't conducive to graceful interaction.
Chemistry has no place on the forums unless the subject is under discussion. The OP was extremely rude to Wilderness for absolutely no good reason.
Izzy, I don't think I ever got back to you on those emails you sent me. I saw them and liked them very much. Thank you for that, and sorry for not replying. I am a mess!
It was my sense that the OP may have felt he was being patronized by Wilderness, which may have caused the OP's strong reaction. I am not defending that, but am entitled to my interpretation.
Agreed that it may not have been justified, but that perhaps that was the reason for his reaction.
But, I am right there with some others: to me it was very difficult to understand what the OP meant, and that can serve as a reminder to us all to reread our own posts - maybe even several times - before hitting "Submit."
The more recent posts have helped to clarify his wishes somewhat. I too would sometimes like to find quicker ways to scroll through the various pages listing names of Hubbers. I'm not certain that I understand the advantage of looking at Hubbers with certain scores, but if that's a wish, then maybe someone else knows a shortcut for doing so.
The problem of "different wavelengths" happens everywhere, and regardless of anyone's education level (especially on forums). (Which is why it's always good not to take things too personally on here and just move on. (After one has put in his hard-to-resist "two-cents' worth", of course. )
Poor ibber55 - (I'm truly not meaning to sound patronizing!) - but, what an introduction to the HP forums! Three posts, all here. They started as a suggestion or question, and then a response that was meant as a request for more information was taken as an attack.
Fellow Hubber, please don't take all of this amiss! It can be difficult to get your point across in a thread, especially when new to the process. I hope your Hubbing experience overall is good enough for you to return to the forums and get to know the people here a lot better. They're really all Good Sorts - at least, all who have posted in this thread so far are.
I have had very similar experiences as what is happening to Wilderness here. I went out of my way to give pointed advice, only to be seen as someone who was arrogant and uncaring. Those are the days when posting to the "help" forum seems like a thankless task.
It can be kind of weird to see how good people -- Randy Godwin excluded, of course -- can misunderstand one another.
Maybe it has to do with the time differences between Hubbers around the world, or the time of the month (sorry, to the squeamish), or the cucumbers or alfalfa sprouts we just ate, or our own expectations - or something we learned or mis-learned in school fifty years ago.
I think I saw the conversation you mean, WE. I've had one of my own - maybe even several of my own - recently.
Time for RG to hijack this thread and turn it into a snakepit! sssssssssssssssssssss...........
Too hot to hijack, Afi! Had a storm last night, no rain we need so bad, but our electrical power went off at 8:30 pm and didn't come back on until 2:30 am.
Imagine trying to sleep out by the pool in a lounge chair with the temperature never getting below 85 and mosquitoes singing little lullabies in your ears. At least it was a cool 95 or so today instead of 103 like yesterday.
The irony is that this site is populated by - who else - writers, and yet there are so often communications problems.
Somebody tries to be helpful, and someone else comes back and says they're too stupid to figure out what the answer was supposed to be.
Sometimes asks for information. Somebody else has it and shares it, and someone else says the person who was trying to be helpful has some other, less "friendly", motives.
Somebody says, "glad to see you", and somebody else tries to pick a fight.
One of my personal favorites, somebody makes a little joke and somebody else doesn't get it - and a big, giant, fight ensues.
Ah.. forums. They sure do bring out "the best" in people, don't they.. Oh well, I don't care. I don't have my air conditioners in yet, and it's too freaking hot to do anything much but "nothing" on the forums. (A few people around here really could lighten up a little, though. ).
I'm new here. There is so much to learn. I think what you are saying is when you are searching hubbers you have to click on the next number and the next. You want to be able to type in a page number and make it easier because there are so many hubbers. Am I right?
wow, people here have really high hubscores. that seems very hard, mostly in the 90's.
