I just noticed something which the HP team may want to check out and it makes me wonder if we are now all completely separate with our sub domains and whether this in some way may be related to the ups and downs.
It's just a little thing but .....
I'm just doing a new hub and popped a title in and then got a message saying it had been taken so I added a couple of words to the end .. all well and good.
I then tried to knock the additional 2 words from the end of the url but I got the following message
"The web address you specified has already been taken. Please try another one"
Well, no actually it hasn't if we really are on sub domains.
for eg if the url was
Then unless I have used it, it wouldn't matter if Izzy or anyone else had used that extension and therefore it is not a duplicate URL.
So does that mean we aren't fully sub domained yet or is there a glitch in the system.
HP .. any ideas?
I've wondered about that as well. However, it seems like probably a good way to go; I would hate to have someone be able to copy my title word for word just because the URL has a different name in the front.
but it is still a different url and actually maybe now we all have our own subdomains, shouldn't we be able to use the same title as you would if you had your own website? I suppose maybe it's more about HP being a directory and I'm thinking more from a google seacrh perspective. Would be interesting to know the reason though.

Do our trackers on our hubs get automatically changed over? Or do we have to add them manually on our subdomain? Thanks Advance.
