HubPages Feature System is broken

Updated on March 29, 2014

Stop moving the keys around, you are creating an unreliable sound.

Aside from the blue haired lady censors employed by HP.

HubPages uses little almost senile "beauty, recipe and DIY" writers to censor. That is just fine. But now they have just dropped all credibility on the notion of featured.

Last ten articles on HP and I have 5 featured and five not featured. The not featured are double the traffic of the featured and all other things are equal.

3 articles over 1300 words and every bell and whistle plus more and they are not featured. Just go to my profile page. By HP standards I am an outstanding writer. And by the fact that I make thousands a month writing, I am a sought after and successful writer and by spell check I do not misspell words or have bad grammar.

So HP is flawed and will be more flawed if all that happens is that this article gets attacked rather than thought about..

For you who attack me because I am critical -- I will bet you never ever ever spent a single night under fire or in a rain drenched hole dug by your own hands.

If you have not lived a full life and your profile makes clear that you are a spoiled brat, do not comment here.

Credentials

Died of Cancer and was revived.

Got shot by a gun in the Belgium Congo --- it no longer exists but wonderful Jimmy Carter sent us there for fun and politics.

Buried in 12 feet of snow in an avalanche

Poisoned by Atomic Bomb experiments near White Sands

Raised 6 children

Have to Bachelor degrees and a Doctorate and several Associate degrees

Have hiked over 14,000 feet 10 times.


So if you are just a little housewife writing about beauty aids and supporting HP like an automaton I will delete and not publish your comments or ridicule you to hell and back. I hope that is clear.

HP is not my revenue stream or my self esteem

      Eddy I just feel like you are a best buddy and a BFF without benefits. Joy is you and you be joy. Thank you so much for drinking some herbal tea with me each day. I am, and so my son is and my wife is made better by you.

      galleryofgrace, here is a great example, they can censor me within minutes but your comment here just took more than a full day to get to me. What!? That is just very significant in their ability to "monetize". Some day they will wake up when the SEC crawls up their backside. Publishers in this industry are running about 4 years behind technology because techies are telling them it is toooooo Hard, give me more moolah!

      Bill I just cleanse my resentments from time to time. I really hope nobody notices. Those resentments lead me back to negative behavior and so it is better that I loosen them on good friends like you.

      Ericderker there are are gods here. Watch how fast one pops with na identical title when one of an authors titles gets unfeatured/unpublished. It's truly amazing. If you don't flit around up in the clouds you don't matter. This is especially true of mturk gods.

      I have said enough about HP. I'm here for the other writers. I don't agree with how they run my business, but they don't seem to care how I feel and that is fine.

      galleryofgrace, do you think it might cause enough of a wave to at least get a review? I know we are just writer worker bees but nobody made editors and publishers god to my understanding at least. And a lot of folks are firing these guys.

      Oh my, but do you mind if I call you Jo Jo? This is so nice of you to take the time to show some love my way. You got some special stuff in you. I do not understand it and I can not be it --- but there are just some people like you that exude love. Enough of that,,, I am rushing over to follow you and leave you some fan mail.

      I so enjoy reading this! I don't understand it either. I have some of the

      same series which are featured and some that are not. No Editor's Choice nods yet. But...I enjoy reading useful, funny, awesome and interesting articles like this. :-)

      I will be sure to keep my eyes open to more of your awesomeness..

      April Gold Award's will be here soon, and you amazing author just may get the nod you so deserve! Shared and Up for sure. :-)
