Hubpages is the best online writing community today. It has a lot of excellent features. The Hubages team did a great job designing this site. I don't have anything to complain. I will just like to make some suggestions.
1. The members should be allowed to choose how to display their ads. At least the placement, and colours, whatever Google allows, however, take precautions to prevent scam.
2. I don’t think the banner ads work. I don’t want to click them; no one wants to click them. They look like spam. So, if possible, avoid banners and replace them with text ads.
3. There should be a qualification test of some kind before signing up for Hubpages. Some people just want to make money. They don’t know anything about writing.
4. Ads should only be displayed after a few days of publishing a hub, at least till it is indexed in the search engines.
5. Related hubs from the author should be displayed on the hub.
6. Links (including ads) should be made a little darker—they are almost invisible to the reader with that light blue.
I hope you will consider my suggestions.
1.& 2. Hubpages owns Yieldbuild. Doubt they'll be asking for you opinion.
3. There is - you have to have 5 hubs pass QAP before you can publish freely.
4. They are, they have to pass QAP and be featured.
5. See 1 and 2
Thank you for making these suggestions, Mr. Tommy. I'd like to add just a few of my own.
1. I'd like Hub Pages to return to the size choices when posting a photo, i.e. full, half, and quarter. Some of my images are more important than others when writing hubs. Forcing hubbers to use only one size photo with the only way of reducing it by floating it to the right thwarts creativity.
2. I'd like to be able to put a picture to the left of my text. Right now, I can only float it to the right or leave it full size to dominate the screen.
Thank you for your consideration.

Hi, yes, I'm a newbie. I read a lot about hubpages before joining, and I have just written my first two hubs and would like some suggestions for these, and for writing hubs in general. I would especially appreciate help on layout--usually I do okay in layout for print and normal web pages, but this...

We've realized for a while that with our existing tools it can be very time consuming to manage links across a large portfolio of hubs. Many Hubbers have tried to handle the interconnecting of related hubs using Link and RSS capsules. That works to an extent, but we feel that...

When a particular hub is unfeatured, can the moderators be more specific about what is the problem areas which have to be improved. Just writing ‘ Spammy elements ‘ doesn’t help. I keep on updating my hubs regularly, even if they have decent traffic/ views. But these days, any editing (from...

Hi Hubbers,I'd like some help with passing the Quality Assessment Process. Will you please give feedback on my Hub Living Dead Creatures From Life's Remnants. I am really new to HubPages and am not sure what is either too much or not enough. I always like to provide my source links, and have gotten...

I have finally completed my 3rd 8 hour marathon of bringing my hubs up to the current standards. I feel angry, but am going to try not to be nasty. I understand you want written hubs of quality, and feel that I have delivered that, since all of my hubs are featured.But these changes have been much...
