Okay, I'm going to go OFF on the Hub of the Day choice, again... I KNOW that there are better Hubs written about MUCH better topics in here every day. I know, because I've read some of them. If Hubpages wants to be KNOWN for it's talented writers who DO write about WORTHY subjects beyond crafts, recipes and the occasional 'cutsy' article; they NEED to start spotlighting some of them - controversial or NOT.
Neat, I had no idea that the Hub of the Day wasn't necessarily published on 'that day'. Honestly, that makes things even MORE puzzling as to HOW they get chosen to be on the front page.
I've seen some very badly-written hubs with more than a few grammar and especially spelling errors - on top of being about as interesting as a head of boiled cabbage.
Since it can be a hub that isn't from that day, I'm SURE the Hubpages team could do alot better. I'll see what I can do to help you out - but I would think Hubpages editors and head honcho writers, etc - would already be qualified to do that on their own.
Because these HOTD hubs are not immediately published, how about a heads up to the authors to review these before publication, at the least, spelling errors. I am sure the authors don't want to see those in their HOTD posts.
I really like this idea. An editor could come in and say, "your hub has been nominated to be a Hub of the Day. Do you want some help in polishing it up for company?" This way, the Hubber has some warning and check it over either on their own or with the help of the editor.
Maybe the editor could even point out the really glaring mistakes so the Hubber can get a chance to correct it.
I know that all hubs should be ready for company. After all, they are published. But when they are singled out like that, they are subject to intense scrutiny and criticism.
Another advantage of this idea, is that an editor is available to more people. Instead of an editor editing several hubs of an individual Hubber and leaving everyone waiting, they can get a chance to touch more people's hubs. Then those people can take what they learn on that one hub and use it to better all of their hubs.
Well it is definitely a subject that needs to be picked up again... Has anyone read the HotD for today? Yeah, it is an interesting subject, but ZMOG it could use an upgrade from an editor - no offense, at all - but, it's written so BORING. That happens... WHY are we not getting a response from Hubpages about this issue? It's OKAY with our head honchos that our HotD's SUCK to high heaven sometimes when they can do something about it to improve things from so many perspectives - the writers, the topics and the site, itself?!! Come ON, stop IGNORING us!!!
I'm not sure which HOTD you're talking about - yesterday's or todays. Yesterday's was written VERY bland; and todays is another pinterest subject. Yeah, the HOTD seriously needs HELP. How the people who run this site manage to pick the most mediocre articles to spotlight is amazing to me. I KNOW there are MUCH better ones being written every day.
Lately, I have had 11 hubs unfeatured due to Quality Issues. I have assured my hubs do not contain grammatical or spelling errors. I have included relevant video and changed the titles and added new supporting texts and...
I have encountered a very poorly written hub, the spelling and grammar was bad and the sentences were incomprehensible. The hub has less than 300 words in total including the title (268 words exactly) and has more than...
I have been hub hopping lately and I am disgusted with the incoherent garbage that I am coming across - nothing but poorly translated articles of about 400 words, usually without even any formatting. I would say that...
Along with the Google effect lately I've seen a lot of forum posts about spam, and every time I hub hop it is obvious that there is a lot submitted here of both spam and simply substandard hubs.I would suggest that the...
