The influx of Squidoo members (what's the correct term BTW?) has really made the forums seem lively again.
I never look at the topic forums, and in recent months the HubPages section has been pretty quiet, so it's nice to see so much activity.
I have been calling them Squubbers, but they may not like that term.
Marisa, If you mean what is the correct term for Squidoo members, we are usually (were!) called Squids. :-)
It's good to be here, BTW, as the forums are helpful, and there are plenty of guidance articles available.
Just so long as we're not called "dead squids" ! :-)
Oh my goodness--I just noticed you have a snake around your neck. You'll be a dead squid if he bites you!
It's really nice to see all of the new faces.
Marisa Wright, influx works. However here are a few more choices: inflow, inrush, flood, inundation. The forum was usually fairly active over on Squidoo.
Any influx of additional writers from a situation as we have will lead to lots of questions, some relating to the transition of material and others on HP itself.
In reality, Squidoo "Lensmasters" had several forums and groups to interact on and of course some favored this one or that one for any number of reasons.
I personally had given up on the official forum because of the over emphasis of social interaction to generate internal traffic.
I sure have learned a lot on this forum! You folks are hard working and helpful.
I was thinking the same thing last night.
It is nice to see so much new activity, and the answers from more experienced hubbers have also been helpful to those of us who have been on the site a few years.
Thanks, new Squidoo transfers!
I've always enjoyed the forums, but they're such a distraction when busy.
I avoid the topical forums like the plague. The only ones that are busy enough to be interesting are the political and religious ones, and they only infuriate me, which isn't much fun.
It is great to be able to read what the active more experienced HubPages' members have to say in the forums. Thank you so much to those of you who share the wealth of information you have. The forums are educational at best.
I rarely comes in forums.For the past two days I have been there for clearing some doubts. So happy to know that forum was too active in these days.
Paradigmsearch has been missing from the forums for quite a while. Isn't he Forum King or something? Hope he's all right.
Forums are great places. I can get my queries resolved at most of the times. Not only this I can connect with different business that help me in business and vice versa. For me it is a great communication channel.

Is it a trend or is it being initiated by HP? Just curious.

An observation: sometimes threads critiquing people's English skills get taken down. However, it's usually when people derail the thread or when people are a little harder on the writer than necessary. However, with the onslaught of poor language and grammatical skills on the site lately, it's...

I know you can have more than one account on HubPages. However in talking to someone recently, I realise I'm fuzzy about the rules. Can a staff member comment on the statements below please?I know that when you're posting in a forum thread, you MUST stick to using one...

I seldom use the forum because I frequently get treated with a condescending attitude or bashed no matter what I ask or say. For instance, the last time I used the forum, a long-time user decided to argue against my desire for hubscores to reflect the eligibility of hubs for the network sites by...

It looks like a fourth of my feed lately is comprised of new people wanting the rest of us to tell them how to write. All day I get request after request for help on passing the Quality Assessment. I mean Really? Many of your requests are just one step above being a jumble of mis-spelled words...
