I prefer the old way to flag a hub (I don't remember when you changed it.)
Back in the day the different "reasons for flagging" used to really stand out (and I could easily remember which reasons were in which order), but now I have trouble locating the correct reason in the list. Maybe it's a spacing issue, I don't know, but it seems it's harder to differentiate. I feel I flag less often than before because of this... I don't know.. it's just so hard to read. :'(
Yes, I just checked it out now. Moreover, there's no way to leave a comment to help the team. I used to always tell them what was the exact problem with a particular hub.
You can. After you click the reason, a text box drops down.
Hi melbel. Thanks for letting us know about this. When we worked on that new flagging interface I discovered there are actually many ways and places to flag a Hub. Are you referring to flagging Hubs from the Hub page, the Hopper, the feed, or someplace else?
On the Hub page, the way the "flag" link is exposed is almost identical. (It used to say "flag this hub". I felt "this hub" was superfluous.) I'm looking at screenshots of the old flagging interface and it's really identical in the descriptions it exposes and when it exposes them. The major difference is that previously the titles were gigantic and all bunched together, which I felt looked unprofessional.
I think there's probably some room for some additional spacing around the menu items which might make them easier to visually parse as separate elements. I'll see if I can adjust it some more.
I'm just noticing the reasons currently appear to be in random order. Alphabetical might be better. (Though, they are in the same order they were in the previous interface.)
I've never had any problem flagging hubs, or seeing the boxes to tick for reasons why.

There are two newly discovered hubbers who have only posted raw translations by using online translating tool, what they did was merely copy and paste the results without doing any further modifications. From the comments they replied, you can tell they don't really understand much English. Even...

Dear HubTeam:I know there have been a few forum threads about this topic, but hear me out please. By the way, this thread refers to the rating down of hubs, not flagging. I have no problem with the flagging feature and see it as a necessary evil. Even if someone misuses it, they have to go through...

In light of the Google algo change, it is now obvious and confirmed that hub-hopping is VERY important. I feel that if you publish here, you should hub hop when you can. As it should hopefully increase our revenue and hopefully take this hubpages back to the top, where it belongs.The problem is...

If we flag a hub, does it say which hubber put in the flag, or is it anonymous. I mean, could someone turn around and flag your hub to retaliate? How does it work exactly? Thanks.

I'm pleased to announce that the new and improved flagging reasons that I've alluded to recently have finally arrived. We have broken down some of the umbrella categories like "Substandard" into more specific flags, to help you as users better identify rules violations, and help us...

So when I hop, I often find hubs that are:* Spun or poorly translated* Overly Promotional* Low Qualityand* Deceptive or miscategorizedI have been just flagging them once, and noting in the comments that there's also a good case for the others.My question is this: Should I continue as I have been,...
