    A Fulgurant Autumn Rite Odour Can Be Prefabricated Out Of Bottomless Dark Flowers


    Autumn is visually a splendiferous dimension of assemblage when you can junket your eyes on the changing emblem from ketamine to yellow, chromatic, red and orange. The temperatures power be dropping and the days getting shorter, but this seems to help intensify those unfathomed shades, as the foliage dies. If you are hot enough to score a ceremonial during this picturesque moment of assemblage it would be a ignominy not to guide advantage of these resplendent flag and use them to modify a stunning season observance scent.


    I see some things never change!   Seriously, is everyone asleep??!!

        Randy Godwinposted 5 years ago in reply to this

        No, the reason we have hub hopping is because HP refuses to prevent crap from being published in the first place.  You sport the "E", you should know this.  Didn't they give you a test or something before giving you such a pretentious title? 


        I'll waste no more time on this.

          Perhaps you should ask yourself why I have it before going off on a tirade (Hubgreeting). Not sure where all your self-righteous anger is coming from. Humbug.

          For the record, anger management aside, from HP themselves: "Frequent Hoppers also help the HubPages community by rating up the best new Hubs, and also rating down or flagging poor or inappropriate Hubs that don't meet with the conditions of the HubPages Terms of Service.".

          That is what I know, it is clearly advertised. I wasn't making a personal statement. Whether or not I agree with it is besides the point, so spare me.

            Randy Godwinposted 5 years ago in reply to this

            I've never spared my opinion of your title, thooghun.  It's nothing personal, I assure you.  Some were embarrassed to have the title bestowed upon them and asked for it to be removed. Others asked for it, for some obscure reason, despite the pretention it represents. 



            I'll pass on counseling from you, if you don't mind.  But if HP wants members to help them keep the crap off the site, then stop the newbies from publishing it to begin with.  The reason this site was punished by Google is because HP didn't do its part, not because we weren't doing ours.
               



            Consider yourself spared.

              thooghunposted 5 years ago in reply to this

              The only way I could see that realistically occurring is by having mods review new hubbers (say up to the 10th hub mark). Having HP manually process 10,000 new hubs a day would fail (always, IMO) for one of two reasons:

              a) It would end up like Ezine Articles with a 2 week backlog (remember also that despite their hands on editing, it did not spare them being slapped by Google either). Or
              b) Having to hire an unreasonable amount of new staff.

              It's a catch 22.  I'm curious how you would go about correcting the problem (I'm curious, not being sarcastic)

              Regarding the title, I don't find it pretentious, though I can see how the term "elite" is. What I do is the polar opposite, I volunteer (it was NOT conferred onto me) to greet new hubbers, without gain or privilege returned. So in a way I do feel I've earned it, and I'm proud to sport it. But perhaps it should be renamed to something other than elite, for it has little to do with quality -- in that you are right.

                Randy Godwinposted 5 years ago in reply to this

                No problem.  I just could never imagine having to sport such a title, much less ask for it.  HP knows exactly why they chose it.  It's an old content site trick used on many other sites in the past.  it's used to divide the common members from the volunteers who are intended to push the site's agenda.  Similar to what you are doing on this topic.

                Since you mentioned "anger management" in your previous post, then you are probably aware that volunteers will defend giving free work to a program more than if they were getting paid for the same job. Justification for giving their time for free, in most cases.

                  I'm not all that concerned with how people perceive it, unless it goes too far. I won't argue with the point your making, it makes a lot of sense, however I can't help but feel the division comes not from my elitist attitude, rather than those who pre-judge it and happily skip to that conclusion. If it keeps cropping up, I will ask for it to be removed.

                  I'm always been a little blunt, but I'm not base enough to feel that a little sticker makes me "elite". You'll note that (from my post-count) despite being on here 4 years, I'm not much of an attention seeker in that regard. Which may also be why I haven't felt much heat from it.

                  You didn't answer my question though tongue

                    Sorry, I didn't intend to ignore your question at all.  Is this the one?

                    "It's a catch 22.  I'm curious how you would go about correcting the problem"

                    If so, I would ask hubbers and staff to preview a new writer's first 2 articles before allowing them to publish at will.  I, and many others I am told, had rather do this than try to catch the junk after it is already on the site.

                    Sometimes a bad writer has many hubs published before they are found.  Some are never found, it seems.

                      Seems like we can agree on that. I'd even gravitate towards a stricter count -- say 5-10. I wrote 60 hubs before I realized you could make some change on here. I used to think we had to put our nicknames in the URL: "/hub/escapeartist".

                      A little bit of a learning curve would have gone a long way back then.

            One doesn't have to hire an editor, pay Mods some % one just gets the average writer to waste time looking at dreck.  However, the example used is far better then the advertisements. 

            I love the way a writer jerks around Adsense and Google by posting what is clearly an ad and getting them to sponsor the ad with their ads, so that the so-called 'writer'  gets paid by other advertisers for posting his own advertisement.

            Guess that's why Hubpages is called a 'Content Farm'

        It depends if the crappy hub makes HP money or not.  If you know the hub is bad and it isn't removed after you report it, post it on the forums.  We've had to do this on numerous occasions if the hub makes HP money.  It's amazing what a little embarrassment will do sometimes.  smile

      If a piece is riddled with spelling errors, the Hub Hopping for me stops.  I try later.  If I want to read spelling errors, I can tune into Facebook, where there's plenty of horrible samples and no one gives a rat's ass about what they're writing.  I appreciate good writing, but I can't overlook spelling errors.  Last night, I couldn't get past a couple of Hubs.  I couldn't even get passed the titles.  Of all things, you shouldn't screw up the title of your Hub with spelling errors.  Jeez.  This is coming from someone responsible for her team losing the county spelling bee in the 6th grade.

        Yes but in the spelling bee there is no 'edit' button. Online you usually have the chance to proofread and spellcheck and correct. I'm just saying that I've met children who spell better than that under the pressure of hot lights, live audiences and no 'go back and correct' options.

      And that's where HubPages spoils you as a writer.  You can edit, which is nice.  You can even delete criticism which doesn't agree with you.  There are writers and there are editors.  It is rare that people can do both.  These Hubs I've been reading in the Hub Hopping lately are just plain scary.  If these writers turned in these hubs to a real live editor with all these mistakes, guess what?  Be prepared to get some rejection slips.  That's the real world.  No, it's not okay to ask other Hubbers to be my Hubber Police, nor will I correct their work and send them an email telling them which words aren't spelled right or their grammar and punctuation is screwed up.  If that's the case, then pay me for my time and efforts.  Otherwise, I'm not reading a Hub that doesn't deserve to be Hopped.  Get my attention and entertain me with your writing, but don't insult me as your reader and don't put anything out there that shows you have no pride in your work and are willing to publish a writing train wreck.

      Arlene, there's nothing in the rules that says we have to hop hubs. We all do it out of our own free will. If it's not worth your time, then flag it or atleast vote it down. And then hop to another one or just stop hopping. The mods are usually looking for spammers and not necessarily poorly written hubs. You do have the choice to not bother with it in the first place.

      I agree with Arlene = I think people should make an effort to produce good writing here, otherwise, why bother?  And it annoys me when people don't even try to spell things right, or use the right grammar and punctuation - its like an insult to the reader.  I am aware that many ESL writers on this site are doing their best, but you can tell when people are trying and when they just don't care.  Still, I have stopped hub hopping because I don't even have time to read all those hubs by people I follow.  It was pretty annoying to hop hubs and only about one out of ten was worth reading!

            Jonathan, I am aware that I don't have to Hop Hubs, but this system established (or not established) by HubPages certainly needs improvement.  I may stop reading a Hub, but I can also flag it or take action with some of them.  That's my call.  Or I can bypass the whole thing and call it a day, month or year.  Some Hubs are just not worth my time.  I understand writers will put out good stuff or bad stuff, but some people write crap all the time and expect others to correct their crap. 

            At the same time, I follow some of the most creative and entertaining writers on the planet, and I keep up with them and provide them with positive feedback.  I look forward to following anyone who provides a good read.   

            Not everyone is cut out to be a writer.  I saw one today that was just unforgivable, but it went through.  Of course, I flagged it and voted it down.  Why am I not surprised?  But I guess this is what some people call that "getting published".  I remember names, so when I see there is no hope for these repeaters, I move on.

            I have nothing against leaving praise where (in my opinion) praise is due.

              I'm not sure what you mean by "went through."  HubPages is an open publishing platform.  We give everyone the benefit of the doubt, to start with.  That means that we are not reviewing all Hubs prior to publication.  There are many rules violations that we can automatically detect (too many links, etc), but there are others that we cannot detect without human review (such as extremely poorly written articles).

              In other words, when you HubHop, you are not seeing things that we have approved.  You are seeing things we may not yet have seen.  Flagging brings them to our attention faster, so thank you for doing that.

              Of course, nobody is obligated to Hop.  Some users genuinely enjoy helping to weed out the crap and improve the site, that's all.

      Well, I would say all systems need improvement on some level and HP certainly is no exception. Often where you find one spelling/grammatical error you are likely to find many. People like this are just careless or less skilled in the language. I would only suggest that people having 'expectations' of others to correct their work might be a bit of a harsh indictment. I never got such an impression from such hubbers.

      In another hub there is advice for finding a hotel to hold the event. This one sounds good:

      "The hotel had a such advertised chef, Psychologist, and catering body. We met with Psychologist. He wowed us with a distribution of dishes hors d'eouvres, appetizers, entrees, and deserts; no necessary to face encourage. We yet went so far as to parting the agenda up to him, and were delighted when he told us what he had in deal. The store and patterned arrangements were united on after a few disagreements with my parents, not the florist. The band was rattling safe; they would gratify sagittate but ravishing invitation and they were feat out the shadowing hebdomad. Like I said, everything was toppling into residence."

      I admit, I don't hub hop much, but NEVER have I seen the amount of crap I just saw in about 10 minutes of hub hopping!  I probably hopped around 25 hubs and flagged probably 18 of them!!  It's truly no wonder now to me why HP is going downhill...something really should be done to prevent this crap from ever being published.

      So, if you are new, you don't get published at all, until a number of people (including HP team) have reviewed your page.

      I don't know...   Last night I was really tired, so I figured I'd do the "effortless"/"mindless" thing of Hub hopping.  Usually, it doesn't take a lot of time or effort to run into something awful, indicate that, and go to the next Hub.  A person who's not in the mood to read can usually easily find something that doesn't even require much reading to see how bad it is. 

      Last night, I was seeing Hubs that looked substantial and "overall good".  They would have required reading to see if there was anything that wasn't obvious (as opposed to so many "usual" ones that don't take more than seeing the thing in the first place for it to be clear it's spammy and/or spun).  I saw some that seemed like they weren't written quite as skillfully, but I would have had to read to really be fair.  Since I was too tired to read each substantial-length Hub I'd go on to the next, and then the next, etc. etc.   Eventually, I got too tired of clicking and clicking in the hopes of finding some "easy-to-take-of-losers", so my well intentioned plan to make use of my tired time by effortlessly "addressing" some easy-to-spot losers amounted to wasted time and no real hopping getting accomplished at all.  Maybe it was a freak night, but it struck me that maybe the days of mindlessly/effortlessly hopping could be dwindling some (which would be both good news and bad news, depending on how tired hoppers are or aren't).   (Or else maybe I was getting the "un-addressed" new Hubs of a lot of other tired hoppers who had passed them by without addressing them.  lol )

        But you must admit, this is from non-English speaking spinners. The frightening thing is that spinning software is evolving, and becoming better, and those who speak English as their first language are finding it easier to use.

        Foreigners can forget it! If their English is so poor that they think the spun article is good, they will never find success.

        But for native English speakers, eventually the web is going to be filled with spun crap.

      Hello good people of HubPages

      May I respectfully suggest that the writer of the above hub could be another Lewis Carroll.  Just for fun I add a copy of one of my favourite poems:

      Jabberwocky

      'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
      Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
      All mimsy were the borogoves,
      And the mome raths outgrabe.

      "Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
      The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
      Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
      The frumious Bandersnatch!"

      He took his vorpal sword in hand:
      Long time the manxome foe he sought--
      So rested he by the Tumtum tree,
      And stood awhile in thought.

      And as in uffish thought he stood,
      The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
      Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
      And burbled as it came!

      One, two! One, two! and through and through
      The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
      He left it dead, and with its head
      He went galumphing back.

      "And hast thou slain the Jabberwock?
      Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
      O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!"
      He chortled in his joy.

      'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
      Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
      All mimsy were the borogoves,
      And the mome raths outgrabe.

      “”from Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There (1872).
