Letter to HubPages Staff

    SirDentposted 5 years ago

    I have seen the degrading remarks made by a few hubbers.  I have read where you have been called idiots, deceitful, thieves, etc. . .

    I just want you to know that I love it here and I believe the staff is very generous when dealing with posts that are meant to degrade you.  I appreciate everything you do for the site and I also know that you cannot please everyone. 



    Here is a party for you.  Virtual, of course.

      *picks up the karaoke mic and begins to sing "Wind Beneath My Wings" to the HubPages staff*

      Who wants to sing next?

      If people behaved like that in the workplace, they'd get fired. Surely HP can ban the ones that only want to sh!t stir with their constant negativity?

        Yes, I know.  Some things are better off done in private simply because it is the decent thing to do.

            Jason ate it, I just know it was him.  He's off with his eater's remorse now, looking for a Chocoholics meeting.

      Amen Paul. I am doing well here and appreciate all of the new programs added. I don't know what some of these people's problems are and always wonder why if they feel the way the do they keep writing here.

      Happy Holidays to the Hubpage staff!

      No kidding about the patience.  No doubt they have their offline moments of rage though, I know I would with all the crap they have to put up with.

      Anyway, great thread Sir Dent.  I will join in the party, that cakes looks soooo good.

    Thank you, SirDent. And I agree with the others...that cake does look good. (I'm an admitted chocoholic...)

          Same with me, depending upon my mood.  I wish it weren't the case, too.  But, permanently cutting it out of my diet is just not an option, it's simply a quality of life issue.

    Thank you staff for trying to make hubpages better with

    new ad-revenue programs that will increase our earnings,
    by marketing hubpages and contacting google after panda happened,
    by letting us easily hop new hubs so we can help keep quality in check,
    by providing scripts to check for broken links and broken videso,
    by having a tag updater that doesn't require editing and republishing the hub,
    by having a title suggestion script,
    by listening when hubbers asked for the possibility of bookmarking
    by letting us view stats both in hubpages and through analytics
    by providing contests and themes to give us ideas on hubs to write about
    by updating your blog fairly often to keep us updated and give us tips
    by letting us get positive feedback even from people who don't like to comment, but might not mind clicking a button
    by stopping people from using color and other html tags that, while could be useful for some hubbers, may end up hurting the reputation of the site when used by those who are design-challenged
    by making it easy for us to flag and categorize our flags
    by actually replying to people in forums

    All of these things that the staff do, that we sometimes take for granted, are wonderful.

    Thanks for starting this thread SirDent!  I agree 110%. HubPages has weathered the Panda storm well and the staff take an awful lot of undeserved flak. My earnings have improved significantly in recent months and generally the staff do a great job.

    Constructive feedback is fine but constant complaining and abuse of staff is at best unhelpful.  Let me add my toast to the HubPages staff wishing them well for the Christmas Season. 

    Here's looking forward to interesting times, earning together in 2012!
