      The last time I looked, HP stats showed more than 71,000 writers here.  That is way down from what it used to be, but is still a strong number.

        Therein you will discover the very root of the problem ~ When you deploy a flood of roughly 70,000 contributors unto the literary universe, if indeed this is a genuine number, the HP site in totality will automatically be “Defaulted” into “Content Farm” status by the general public, which is of course not a very desirable position in which to be placed ~ An obvious scenario impossible to AVOID ~

        There is a very small percentage of stellar writers here, or who were present and accounted for in the past, who were unfortunately contaminated by the overwhelming “Tonage of Junk” willfully distributed by the balance ~

        It’s virtually impossible to reconcile 70,000 contributors against “Content Farm” status, or even 1000 / “CF“ ~ From my extensive experience in the industry, a quality site is extremely lucky to enlist 10 superb contributors ~

      I wander off, do some other things, and them come back. Which reminds me, to crank up another hub and tweak all the others. They  need updating to increase my hubbie scores.

        Hello all. I have not written a new hub since last December. But I still read and open my Hubpages account almost everyday.   I have 33 hubs and getting only about 20 views per day, but I like the Hubpages writers/community  and the HP staff as well.

        Very rare for me to access the forums now but happened to do so purely by accident tonight with a wrong click and saw this thread. Had to contribute! Been here going on 8 years and although life circumstances cause me to take breaks at times, it's always a huge pleasure and joy to come back. Love Hub Pages and I'll be here as long as we're both around!

        I check into HP pretty much daily these recent months. My hub writing has waned as much as my journal writing. I seem to be at an impasse of sorts, though I am inspired. That inspiration just does not flow shall we say. Patterns of life are changing as I also am changing. HP is changing rapidly as is internet life . . . growth is exponential and audience is diversified while still having specificity. A challenge of sorts for the budding writer learning of authoring.

        I started on HP in 2010 and was very active until 2013. At this time it appeared many others started leaving, no one stated a reason. Then it happened , just about everything I posted was not " up to HP standards "...
        or subject matter appeared too similar...so I too fell by the wayside.
        I am a Medical Researcher,/ published author by trait, but wrote lighthearted material for HP.  I tried several times to update/edit my previous write but to no avail...they are considered " sub standard "...but I will continue trying periodically...I still do " questions " ...

        Hi everyone.  I am still here, and regularly checking in. 
        I still get a trickle of people looking at a few of my Hubs.  But not many now, mainly I think because I have not initiated any new Hubs recently.
        The forums used to be very active with a great many very interesting people.  Whether I agreed with them or not was not so important as the chance to hear the views of other people.  Alas, the numbers have declined very much.  I was checking a few of the active forums that interested me the other day and many of them tailed off about 3 years ago. 
        Where have people gone to, I wonder?   Have they found another site that is a bit more "alternative" friendly?  HubPages seems to be very Google-linked and a bit biased along the religious lines.... am I correct in this?  Happy to be proved wrong if any one disagrees with me.

          Hi Johnycomelately,  I left for a couple of years and then came back.  Some of the forums are a little, shall we say, challenging but there are loads of really interesting, nice people on here.  I live the fact that you can get in touch with people from all walks of life, in far flung places.  You've got to dig a little deep to find posts that you might enjoy, you don't say which?   Hubpages gives you access to the writing of people you might not read otherwise.  Perhaps we should both have a go at posting about things that interest us and see where it goes from there?

        I'm here. I've been here for 4 years, but there have been so many changes since the first Google Panda algorithm change, and consequent changes, and there is no money in it anymore. People who were here longer liked writing, but were making a lot of it here, when the rules allowed a lot of outside links and let you advertise your work in other places.

        Now it's basically just a place to write if you like to. You won't make much money, and if you work hard and have a large body of hubs, each time you have to change them all you will get sick of it.

        The community is nice. The administration can't figure out what to do to get back into Google's good graces, and probably never will. But there aren't any other good sites for writer's now, it's the only game in town. So it's still a good place to get feedback if you like to write, and get practice.

      Howdy.
      I joined in 2013, but got a new job in 2014 so I mostly ignored Hubpages that year. 2015 has been quiet enough, so I've had some more time to dedicate to writing hubs. My traffic usually goes down in the summer months, but I was a bit surprised to see them lacerated from the Panda attack.

      I like sniffing round on the forums because you learn a lot and some of the threads are very entertaining. I guess the reason I hang around is because of some of the success you hear about gives you a bit of hope.

      Actually, it's interesting you posted this. I was wondering the other day about a writer who used to be very active on the forums in 2013, but I haven't seen in the last few months. Her name is WriLite, or something like that. She used to be very helpful.

      I've been here over 8 years and am still doing pretty well.

      Adding better images and updated content helps to keep my Hubs viable regarding traffic and income. The fact that many students access my Hubs all year long helps as well. My writing has improved markedly month by month since the start and I appreciate that, since we seem to live in a "Continuous Improvement" system in much of the workplace (since the late 1980s) and in online content. A bit more work is required now than previously, I think, but I like improving.
       
      Hope all HP writers can have good experiences here - Happy Spring!

        I've been here for over 5 years and no matter what I do...no matter how active I am...no matter how many edits I do to my posts...and no matter how many questions and comments I ask, HubPages continues to dump on my Hub Score. I was always in the high 90s and rarely in the low 90s. Now, no matter what, I can't get above a score of 84. I am discouraged and disgusted all rolled into one. It is a feeling of rejection and a slap in the face of loyalty and certainly something that has left a horrible taste in my mouth.

      Just passed my 4th anniversary and I seem to have hit the big time.  3 of my articles have been stolen and printed word-for-word on at least 2 other sites.  The investigation continues . . .

      There should be an accolade stating how many hubs a person has had stolen from here.  I know I'm not alone and others have probably suffered more theft.

        Sure, it is a painful experience to see our great work is copied by someone. I also support your view on an accolade or something specific to that extent to pin point a 'stealer'.  Meantime, could you please teach me the mechanism to know how is our work is copied elsewhere. Congrats on your 4th anniversary. Keep on writing. All the best.

          There will be a small red copyright sign (letter c inside a circle) next to the title of your hub on your account page. 

          Also, you may check any of your hubs at any time by copy and pasting capsule titles or entire paragraphs from your hub into the Google search box.  That is what I did to find out who had copied my work and it popped right up below my article's listing.

        I like your idea for an accolade for having hubs that were stolen. I would have quite a few accolades. The worst kind are the sites that use your pictures and garble some highlights from several hubs. Their sources are really hard to track down.
