I'd like to suggest this forum be split, and a new forum be created specifically for "Report a Problem".
The reason? HubPages has no help desk system, so the only way to report a problem is to either email team @ HubPages or post on this forum.
Recently, posting on this forum has stopped working because staff are neglecting it. That's short-sighted, because the result is people have to email instead - and if it's a site-wide glitch, that means many Hubbers sending emails about the same problem, causing needless work for the team.
HubPages' original solution - having a forum where Hubbers could post, have easy problems solved by other Hubbers and difficult ones picked up by a Hub staffer - is a far more efficient system. So it would make a lot of sense for HubPages to monitor it.
If the problem is keeping up with the number of posts, then let's separate "Report a Problem" from "Suggest a New Feature", so the moderator doesn't have to waste his/her time reading through threads that aren't relevant to the job in hand.

For the second time in less than a week, I just spent time opening "questions" that aren't questions, but nonsensical "garbage"--bits of a paragraph copies from somewhere and dumped into HP. In each...

I think hubbers should be able to flag spam on the forums. I'm not sure if there is an option to do this already but I think it would be good. Even though there is not too much spam, keeping HP forums spam free 99% with...
