As a new 'hubber', I've noticed two real benefits of discussing your hubs on external forums.
The obvious one is traffic, but be aware that advertising your work breaks the rules on a lot of forums.
The other is criticism. People will put across their view on your thoughts and opinions, they'll point out your ommissions, and question your content. This is your opportunity to update and enrich your content. Don't take it personal.
You may believe yourself to be an expert on a given subject (guitars in my case), but until the real internet 'geeks' get a hold of you, you really don't know as much as you thought. Trust me on that one.
Then go back to them with the updates, rinse and repeat. Don't be pig-headed, dont argue uneccessarily, and you'll find people will be thankful you took onboard their advice and info, and your Hub will be all the better for it.
My initial reaction was, you can just ask other Hubbers and get advice here. But really, your idea is genius.
First of all, you can ask the people who are experts in the field. That mean their advice will be more about content and less about the presentation. That is important, so you can be relevant, correct, and as you said, you may learn about better ways of doing things, and you can share that with your readers.
Second of all, you can use your referral link so you can get paid while you are being helped!
Well it's not everyday I'm called a genius. Thanks!
This all depends on the hub of course, you need to pick a subject that people will debate, for example I have a series of hands-on guitar gear reviews, so opinions will always differ, the trick is to take the criticisms and other points of view on the chin, absorb it, then write some more about it given your new knowledge.

The posts I loathe most are the ones where people resort to childish name-calling.Almost as bad is where some clogs up forums with large sections of stolen content copied and pasted from elsewhere.The next most annoying IMO, is instead of debating, they make a personal attack or claim that I must...

I have a list of more than 100 (106 to be exact) do follow forums, I'm just wondering if it's really effective before I register in all of them, signing up with 106 websites isn't a joke, it's time consuming so I'm just wondering if anyone here have tried it before, and what's the result?? ...

Recently I'm noticing new members who have no hubs, no activity where they read or comment on hubs, and only join to participate in self interest and/or bleeding heart questions in various forums. Sort of using HP as a chatroom. Before anyone attacks me for this, please know I enjoy the discussion...
