I’m worried about HP. What with outages, delays in processing income and now difficulty getting onto my stats page or my earnings page it might seem the gremlins have gained power at HQ. Normally I would blame the internet or my computer for pages freezing or coming up half-loaded but frankly every other page, every other site I access springs into fully-fledge life immediately. Please say you are having similar problems with HP.

Do you know I think you have explained everything so clearly here that I am going to select this as the best answer and close this question. Many thanks TT2.
I finally got the block message from Pinterest just now. Hope we can correct it.
Hi Patty … as I say the problem is intermittent - probably when HP staff are doing some tweaking. The Pinterest thing is a problem however but Simone is on their tail so things may soon be sorted. Fingers crossed!
I'm with you Janshares, I really like it here and am trying to remain upbeat even though the dramatic decline in traffic and earnings is soooo discouraging. I'm having a hard time writing. My hearts not in it. So I appreciate your positivity.
Hang in there.
I’m sure the decline in traffic is due to Google having done a small algorithm tweak (all info on a forum thread) - we’ve just got to sit tight until it stabilises. I think we can be sure that HP staff are doing all they can to rectify things for us
Hmm, perhaps it is just HP staff doing tweaks?
It’s intermittent, samsons … that way they make us think it’s us and not them :)
I think you have put the whole thing comprehensively in a nutshell here, FR. Maybe HP’s wonderful open-handed policy of 'come one, come all' in terms of writers and their writing may well have jeopardised its position with the big G.
Angie - I believe it has. When I signed up for HP, I was surprised that I wasn't required to submit a writing sample, or some sort of application before being allowed to publish.
For "there" read "three".
Dyslexia rules KO!
Thanks for the clarification, wingman … I was sturgling to understand what you meant. OMG! The dyslexia’s spreading ...
I was thinking of flying in the face of danger AND good taste, by writing a really naughty hub with lots of rude words and stuff - just to see if anyone noticed. But I think Flanders & Swann covered it with:
"Ma's out, Pa's ,
Let's talk rude,
No-one would think you are just a naughty schoolboy under that charming colonial outer casing would they, TL?
"Pee, po, belly, bum, draws."
Only the British, Angie, only the British!
I do love us! We have an amazing ability to laugh at ourselves. Up with us! Or should that be ‘Up us?"
My dear Ian - the majority will always be mediocre and I do belong in the majority, yet for those who write consistently and with the good feedback - they always have a chance to improve! Without HP, I would not have met YOU!
Hey, Twilight Lawns: I take offense.. (just kidding,of course) .I respond to each and every comment on my Hubs. I love getting comments, and it would be rude of me not to respond. Just try me!
Mary, I apologise on bended knew and cover my head with ashes, meanwhile wearing my Hugo Boss sackcloth suit.
Yes, everything does seem rather ‘turbulent’ at the moment, Sunshine. I wonder if we are under some sort of covert cyber attack … not that I’m really a conspiracy theorist or anything :)
I don’t have a lot of problems with idling … but strangely the odd behaviour does seem to have coincided with the new aspect.
