I noticed this with questions a bit ago, but now I see it's an issue with hubs, too.
On questions, if the url of the question end with a # and you click to delete an answer someone left, it doesn't delete the answer, it just "jumps" you up to the top of the question.
On this hub:
When, you click to enlarge one of her pictures and then click the x, you are back up at the top of the hub... and not in the section of the hub near the picture.
I noticed in this case, after enlarging the image, the url is changed to something with a # at the end. This is why I decided to bundle this all into one bug report.
Edit: Lol, I should make sure I have the right url in my clipboard before hitting paste!
Thanks for bringing this to our attention!
I have forwarded this to our engineering team to be addressed.
Just got news from engineering that this should now be fixed. I confirmed so in Safari, Chrome, and Firefox.
I don't really see this as a bug. Standard HTML programming brings any browser to the top of a page when a link has # at the end of the URL. I see it happen a lot that some people paste an invalid URL into a Hub, and even in profiles, without testing the links.
I should clarify, It's adding the # to the end of the url at times it shouldn't be added.
It should never be added to the end of the URL. If copying a URL one needs to copy only the address itself and not the entire string that may include other parameters that misdirect the location. You said it very well with your last line in your first post in this thread.

When you choose your tags for your hub and with the keyword tool you see there is many keywords that can bring you money, do you use all of them? Or do you only choose a few based on what is in your titles and content?...
