Since the creation of the subdomain for each user, I've been wondering if a supplemental feature will help. Why not make it easier for each hubber to interact with followers and visitors? Perhaps a status update feature? Or bulletin board?
If each hubber has their own domain, it can be treated almost as an independent website, which is why Hubpages is the only content site that seems to be recovering from Google's Panda update.
If each subdomain were to be treated like its own site, why not give hubbers more control over their profile? Let them interact with people. What about giving each domain its own blog feature? I know a lot of hubbers treat the site like a blog, but many hubbers do not. Many hubs are geared towards page views and gain those views by discussing popular topics.
People already confuse HubPages with being a blogging site, which it was not designed to be and is not supposed to be, and adding such a feature woudld most likely just draw even more content that is of poor quality and a personal focus (two things that can get a Hub unpublished).
Maintaining a blog elsewhere and linking back to your Hubs is a much better web strategy for those who want one. And there's plenty of forum space for discussing, don't you think?

Is there a way to exclude hubbers who do not have idled hubs from the 24 hour review for new articles? This may be the wrong place to enter this request, and maybe it is an impossibility. It would be nice if staff could...
