How to be a Good Neighbor?

    MotherHubberposted 9 years ago

    I'm relatively new to Hub Pages, and I am just looking for tips on how to be a good community member.  I'm trying to write consistantly, and I've joined some fan clubs.  I am not that active on the message boards yet, because I feel like the new kid in class :-)  Any tips for me on what to do and (more importantly) NOT do, to be a good Hub Pages neighbor?

      Hi and welcome!!!! Read my article advice to a new hubber , as for what you should do , simply have fun!!!! Become a fan of others, and whatever you do make certain that your articles are not duplicate content and are original, there has been some recent plagarism which is an absolute no-no. Ask questions as someone is always willing to help you. big_smile

      Alright,I'll put my 2 cents in. I think as long as you come in the spirit of community and don't be confrontational,you'll get along great.Providing helpful tips and constructive criticism is usually welcomed.
      I try to be positive most of the time.
      BTW;welcome to the forum. big_smile

    I ditto.  AEvan became one of my first fans, so I wouldn't feel loney.  Thanks AEvans!  AEvans also brings a lot to the table in some of the forum's hot subject matter.  Mother hubber, do you like the forums?  I can't tell if they are a good thing or bad.

      You are so welcome!!! I have also been reading your article they are great..The forums can be good and bad, it just depends on the subject matter, be careful unless you have an expertise on the subject or go into them with an open mind.smile

    I agree with everything said.
    I am fairly new myself and have noticed the more active you are in the forums and reading other hubbers and commenting, the more you get out of your time here. You read some good stuff and others provide good feedback.  Its the adage. the more you put in the more you get out of it.

    Welcome.

      Evans, Abishek, Henry, Stacie, Scribe & Pappa:

      Thank you so much for answering my question.  Great advice, and I will try to follow it as best I can. 

      I am so happy that I found a place to write - I have always loved to do it, and I think I was lacking the proper outlet.  Having a strong community and lots of support is giving me the confidence that I need to put fingers to keyboard.  I was even one of the featured Hubbers yesterday!  I thought that was awesome!  I was walking on a cloud all day!

      Anyway, thanks so much for the support.  I will see you around. 

      As for the forums, I am going to try to be brave and dive in. . .they seem so well established, it's kind of like walking into a conversation at a party when you've arrived late. :-)  We'll see how I do.

      Thanks again, and all best.

      MotherHubber

          You can find all of your hubs here (or just click the my account tab).  A new hub will be available for public viewing immediately after you click the publish now button.

    Hello to All.  I am new to HubPages and have just begun responding to forum questions.  I responded to a question recently and felt my response was attacked by another hubber.  Aside from making people feel uncomfortable and unwelcome, this just seems like bad form.  If we are all part of a writing community, we should be able to write responses and express opinions without fearing attacks.  Otherwise, why would any writer want to participate?

      Was it an attack or a misunderstanding?

    People who can't stand opposing opinion are advised to stay away from public forums smile
