I just found the HubPages Directory and naturally, looked for my name. It says that authors must have published hubs to be listed there but I can't find my name. How do we get added?
Are you just looking at the first page that shows up on the directory? Did you click on this?
They are indexed similar to an encyclopedia. Aarron-Alan...Alex-Arthur...
I found your name under Pawpawwrites--penrose
Thanks Anna Marie. Must have been a brain fog that kept me from seeing that.
No, it's a weird directory. You have to click on a name close in spelling to your to get to that area.
Agreed, Beth37. I thought it was just me. At first glance it looks like we have only a few authors. Now that I know the "secret" I feel better.
Don't feel bad. I'm a brain surgeon... it only took me 2 hours to decode the formula.
Beth, your talents amaze and astound me. Now that I know you're a brain surgeon I wonder if you could fix my migraine headaches? No? Okay then.
Actually, I've suffered with migraines since I was ten years old. I spent years where my sole focus was how to get more imitrex. Doctors would give me all their samples in addition to my prescription. I took at least one a day to survive... I tried every preventative on the market and nothing worked. Then one day I found out a distant relative had the same problem. She took inderal (propranelol) er. Apparently, I was getting too much adrenaline to the head... this is a beta blocker and it slowed the process. I take that every day and almost never have migraines anymore. This was a miracle in my life if you had known how I had suffered. Have you tried everything out there already? Please feel free to email me if you'd like to discuss it privately.
Sorry to hear that you suffered so much with the migraines. Actually, I can control mine most of the time with over the counter medicines. Mine are definitely not the debilitating kind you have, thankfully. And thank you so much for the offer to discuss it privately. So very sweet of you. Mine were mostly triggered by working in the corporate world and putting my nose to the grindstone. I used to blame it on my boss who was a complete um, well, nevermind.
lol... well Im really glad you are able to control them. That's awesome. I guess my brain surgeryness is done for the day then. Off to my other job as rocket scientist.
All righty then, Beth. How long would it take a rocket ship at 60 miles per hour to reach the moon? I've wondered that from time to time.
At least a few minutes... possibly 10 hours... somewhere in there. Im trying to dumb it down for you a bit. I hope you were able to follow.
Edit... they don't go 60 mph... hahahaha... that would be stupid. They go the speed limit like the rest of us... 70 mph. 75 when no one's looking.
Well then, Beth. I'm sorry I still don't get it. Could you make your explanation a little more clear so even I can understand? I got lost on the 70 mph or 75 mph. Which is it?
Oh Peg, Peg, Peg... simple, sweet Peg.
See, it goes like this... first they point the rocket up towards the sky, then they wind up the rubber bands which creates cyntrifical (which is apparently a word only NASA recognizes cause my spell check is flagging it) force, then they turn on the fire boosters which serve only the purpose of burning thru the rubber bands. When they break, which can take up to 25 min. depending on their width, the rocket is launched at the unimaginable speed of 90 mph. With wind resistance, something you couldn't possibly understand, the rocket is slowed to approx. 75 mph, however, because the pilot is unable to pull the rocket over in the event of an officer monitoring his speed, he slows the rocket, using his hy-draul-ic braking system... I know... another big word! And slows the whole thing down to a safe 70 mph.
I know so much it's hard to fit it all into one simple paragraph, but for now, you'll have to be content with this amazing knowledge I've afforded you. A little peek into my mind. Be well.
Beth, you truly are a Rocket Scientist. And to use big words in a sentence like hydraulic and centrifugal force I remain in awe. Kudos. You are the winner and still champion.
So, as long as you don't stop anywhere along the way, you should be there in under 5 months.
They could have made it more user friendly. It was confusing to me too.
At least we can all close our accounts if we want to. It's not like we're being held captive by unseen forces... like that *other place.
Hi Melinda. Thanks for the support. Glad to know others found it confusing and not just me.
No problem. It took me a minute to figure it out. I looked for my name, and thought...wait, she's right...my name isn't here either...then I looked more closely. I tend to rush through things.
I never knew such existed. I am glad for the link and explanation LOL and did find mine. Wow, there are a lot. Thanks for the info.
Don't feel bad, Peg. It is confusing. I wish HP didn't make certain aspects of this site so vague.
Like most things, once you know how the directory works it is easy to find a name. So I'm okay now on this, although, I do think it would be more impressive with a long list of authors or an Alpha character to head up each group. IMHO of course.
With a little effort, i found myself there...
Didn't even know that such a directory exists. Let me check and start complaining about the absence of my name..Lol
Yes. I went to the authors page and saw nothing to click. So I went to the URL which Anna Marie put in for you - again I saw nothing to click. So I went back to the authors page and clicked the name closest to mine. There I was!
Although it seems obvious, once you understand, there could be some kind of explanatory note. ie, " We currently have more than xxxxxxxx active hub authors. The listings here are alphabetical, similar to encyclopedia volumes. If you are looking for a particular screen name, Click the appropriate section listed below."
Many, even most, of the people finding this index page think that these are ALL of the active hubbers. Maybe even adding the word "to" or "through" to each entry would help.
How about 'click on the names on this page which are closest to yours' - or something shorter.; or simply 'Forward' on the bottom right corner of each page.
Good suggestion for improvement, Rochelle Frank. Finding one's name is not self evident.
Hello The Examiner. So glad you found yourself there. Me too.
When you go to the directory all the names you see is actually a list of range names. So to find your name you have to look at the range into which your name fits and click on that and it will bring up the list of the hubbers that fall into that range and your name should be there. Not sure that I like this idea but perhaps there are too many hubbers to do it otherwise.
Thanks Peg, I didn't even know there was a directory and admit at first glance it looks like there's not many hubbers at all!
Oh thank you Mary. That's what it looked like to me too. Then I got the encyclopedia explanation and now it makes sense, although, would it to newcomers?
I doubt it very much. It doesn't indicate that it is a listing from "all to app" kind of thing.
I can't find myself on there. But... HubPages doesn't like me either, so I doubted I would be there.
You are there, too. Between RTtheRocketTurtle - ryancarter
Just look for where you would fall alphabetically, and click on the link. It will take you to the list of all the names that fall between the two.
Hi again Mary. Yes, one would have to look very closely to find people. I wonder why it is condensed like that?
I'm hoping your family is doing better now. Was worried about things after reading your hub TIA or Stroke. Another friend, Hawaiianodysseus wrote about his TIA experience in Seven Miles of Gratitude. Very scary stuff.
It is. We are still waiting to get an appointment with the stroke specialist. I somehow missed Joe's hub but will certainly go back and look for it. Thanks, for the name of the hub and for thinking of us!
Oh Thanks PegCole.. I just came to know there is a Directory to list all hubbers name.
Beginning even I was searching lik you. Later got to know about the names clubbing and found mine.
Oh thank you peg. And now am enjoying the RocketTurtle conversation by you & Beth.
I didn't even know about the directory. I just now checked it out after seeing this thread. It was confusing to me too, but I figured it out; probably because it was explained in this thread.
I didn't know about the directory either. It is confusing how it is setup. I found my name though.
Thanks for the question, I did not even know the directory existed - now I do!
Thanks for noticing the directory and for responding to the post. Nice to meet you.
I couldn't find myself - elayne001 - any help would be appreciated
This is your page La Verne... do you have hubs published yet? Are you new?
Hi Beth...Yes I'm new...almost 2 months old here in HP. But I have 21 hubs already...thanks for sharing the page; but my name isn't there...
Hi La Verne,
I found your name on this list:
kuttu's - ladys659
Since there is a space between La and Verne it is filed in that category. Nice to see you!
It is good to know you are officially there.
Thanks PegCole17 ,and please tell me how to have 100 points? It is not working for me.
Goodness gracious, Cheeluarv. I wish I knew the formula to get 100 scores. I'd be all over it. The hubber scores seem to vary with many things like quality of the hubs as decided by the powers that be and the people who read and vote on hubs; by the ratio of followers to how many people you follow; to the traffic your hubs bring in from outside of HubPages. For example, do people search for certain things and your hub pops up in the results? Stuff like that.
Read a lot of other people's hubs and you will see a vast difference in author's style and subject matter. Comment when you are moved by something you've read. Follow only those hubbers whose work interests you. Respond when people comment, not like I did here waiting so long to answer your nice question. Sorry about that.
All the best and I hope this helps.
You are my "Goodness gracious" Pegcole 17 for giving me the best ,useful tips to increase the hub score, the delay is not a matter at all. As a Beginner , I was happy to see your detailed reply, particularly the tip on 'follow' and 'followers' was useful.
Even my name is not in the directory. I have published 38 hubs.
You are listed on this page:
Thanks for answering on Srirad0675's comment, Writer Fox. How do you get the link with the number in it like that? Cool.
It's just the URL at the top of that webpage (the address in the browser bar). For instance, the URL of this particular forum page is:
http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/117431? … ost2485940
Glad to see you found yourself here Srirad0675. Nice to meet you.

Do you know who you signed up under, if anyone, when you first joined Hubpages?Since people can earn money by referrals, as a point of interest, is there a way to find out who we signed up under? If you know the person, have they assisted you in any way?

Has anyone had their advertising turned off by automatic filters?The advertising on my exclusive titled hub has been turned off. I am assuming it is because the article is about how to help a person who Cuts or self injures. Any one have this happen to them?

I recieved an email from a hubber who said she was 13 years old. It wasn't asking for help or anything...it was trying to make friends. I forwarded it to the Hub Team because I don't think 13-year-old girls should be writing to adults on the internet.has anyone else gotten anything like this and if...

Does anyone know if htere is a way to back up all my hubs in one go?If, as I think might be the case, I quit hubpages because to be frank all that stuff when you go to create a new hub is hugely overwhelming - take my poem, for instance, just went to publish a poem - just a simple poem and all that...
