I don't like it that much.
The idea to not see the writer is based on a good idea, but the hopper tool itself and the options to evaluate a hub were muc better in the previous hopper.
I am not a judge, I don't want to appraise each hub - moreover not if I am not interested it. I loved to vote up, hit interestinf/funny/awesome on several hubs, but I simply do not want to spend minutes by using the new sliders.
It is a good idea that hubpages wants to promote the best hubs and the best writers more in this way, but this slider is simply boring :(.
