Do you think Hubpages should take a harder stance to poorly written hubs?


I hop hubs when I can, and find so many that are of poor quality. They have little to no content, or just one long text block. Don't get me started about the spelling or grammar. Should HP take more of a harder stance against these hubs, and just pull them or not even post them without going through some sort of spelling or grammar check? I am sure it would be easy to tell if just one module is used just for works, and to tell if it's just one 1,000 word paragraph.

    I do not believe that any of us would "report" someone who had poor grammar, but I'm sure most of us would love to see the people who plagiarize, out of here. No matter how well I believe I have written an article, I will always find errors.

    Good idea. While Textbroker is a pay per project site, they have each writer submit a sample and each new article/project is also "graded" enabling Textbroker to make sure standards are met. I see no reason this can't work here in some form.

    Perhaps so. I know some who write on here that don't have English as their first language, and while I want them to have a chance, it can drag the site down as a whole.

    Low traffic hubs and poorly written hubs are two different things. I think having hubs be automatically deleted for low traffic sounds pretty harsh. I think the unfeaturing they already do is adequate.

    No one is going to read a wall of text.

    then no one will read and the person will quit writing. problem solved or people like you could give a few helpful hint and the writer becomes a good writer...problem solved

    Someone voted this down? We need a content site moderated by English teachers: perhaps that will make these people happy.

    The rating also takes into account the quality of the actual content. Grammar isn't everything.

    I agree about the apprentice program and I have commented in other venues about having a graduated apprentice program. This way, newbie writers can and should learn how to properly write online. This would also take the stress off of Hub Hopping.
