When I went to the profile page of a Hubber I hadn't heard from for a while, the page states, "Sorry that user no longer exists." It just struck me the wrong way.
Can you please change the wording? The person doesn't cease to exist simply because they aren't here. Maybe change "user" to account or profile. Or add the words "on HubPages" at the end. Or both.
Also, this would really be a good place for marketing and provide a small list of other profiles to visit instead.
I remember a request about the wording on unpublished hubs, but can't find it. Did you change the wording on those?
Since I'm removing content this week, and have a running list of removed URLS, here's the message for the removed hub:
410. That page doesn't exist.
The author may have decided to delete it, or there could be an error with the URL that you are using.
Back to HubPages
One of these pages may be useful
(Shows one hub that was actually sort of related to the one I removed.)
Good thanks. I am glad that they did change the message for removed hubs. Now they need to change the message for removed Hubbers.
I'm glad to see they changed it. I was the one who originally posted the problem, but never saw the change since all of hubs are now featured. Thanks for showing it.

I just finished editing a Hub and signed out. Then I called up the Hub only to get this terrible message that puts a very bad light on Hubbers as possible violators of "The Code."What a poor image this gives the public. Being new to HB, my reaction is one of a public person who knows...

HI!I have a suggestion for the HP staff. Please change the wording on the public hubpages near the bottom where it asks for comments. Currently next to the comments section it has a little box that reads:Members and GuestsSign in or sign up and post using a hubpages account.So it APPEARS the only...

Does anyone know a similar site that is more user friendly?I notice that it's taking longer and longer to upload my texts and photo's and often the whole page just gets stuck. I really really haven't got all this time. It's taking more than an hour to get simple stuff done and I'd rather be writing.
