Why can you not change the background of your hubs? A dash of color would surely liven this place up a bit. Cool skins would be nice too. How about making the hubpage full screen. Why must my hubs be shown in 2/3 screen?
i would guess the 2/3 screen is to be completely compatible with all browsers particular people still using old systems and small monitors or laptops.
Skins and colors would probably be more fun for you as a designer but detract from the purpose of pushing your content.
I also wish the free space was better utilized for ad placement, but I met with little support
What you think is attractive could be utterly atrocious/unreadable. Believe me, Hubpages is perfect (graphically speaking) just the way it is. There is uniformity, which makes the actual *content* speak out and distinguish one hub from another. If you do a quick search of the forums you'd find quite a number of threads talking about changing the way the site looks, offering customization options for color and capsule placement, etcetera, but in the end you've just got to trust Hubpages and Yieldbuild on this.
I dont trust yieldbuild, its just another service claiming their math is the best towards creating a profit, I would suspect their stats are based on a much larger pool (the entire web and the common user) and is not specific to the hubpages demographic.
The most clicked adsense ads would appear between modules - any side placements are blocked by our own oversaturation/exposure to such ads.
Adsense is actually a pretty dead program anyway (9 months until first payout!, average) My other sites make payout every 2-3 weeks using other programs.
I dont write for money from hubpages - I just use this format to help me organize other projects that I am working on - hubpages is my first draft
My fixation on control of placement of ads is merely a perfectionist nature that feels this particular aspect is subpar.

I may be the only person that feels this way but I really don't like the look of our hubs. I think they would look more professional if they were wider. They remind me of blog posts.

When viewing a slide show the photos should show up sized the same as a full size pic, even though they may be flushed right or a thumbnail, on the hub. I am not seeing them that way. Jason provided me with...
