    But, first my rant.  I know it will make no difference, but at least I’ll have had my chance to say how I feel.
    Okay, I give up.  I asked for the one hub of mine that has been put into a niche, “Gifts for Men Craft Ideas,”  to be put in the Feltmagnet niche instead of the Holidappy niche and received an e-mail in response telling me it couldn’t be done.  Give me a break!  You mean to tell me that no hubs have ever been moved from one niche to another?  Don’t they mean “I don’t want to bother with your one little insignificant hub”?  My hubs are doing very satisfactory on HubPages  and I do have hubs that could and should be in the Holidappy niche, the men’s craft ideas  hub should not be in that niche because the ideas are for men’s gifts for any time of year or any occasion.

    Now, there are things about HubPages that I really like and I think much thought was given about how it would benefit Hubbers.  This thread is actually about listing your favorite hub editing tool.   I know you may  have more than one, but please list only one.  Give others a chance to add their “favorite.”

    My favorite editing tool on HubPages is:
    ***** A potentially broken link has been detected in this Hub.  It is highlighted below.  You can correct the link by editing the containing capsule.

      Hi lbrummer,

      We do not currently have the capability to move Hubs between Network Sites, though we are working on building it. It's a nontrivial engineering task the way things are set up currently, please be patient and we will reconsider the locations of content when we are able.

        Hi Christy,
        Thank you for taking the time to reply to my concerns.  I appreciate it, but I don’t understand why the person who answered my e-mail didn’t just give me your answer instead of brushing me off with:

        Hi Loraine and happy Sunday.
        The Hub in question could not be moved, but please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.
        Thank you for your understanding.

        Team HubPages

        I’m not a 12 year old, please don’t treat me like one.  And I’m being thanked for my understanding?  Understanding what?  That I’ve just been put in my place and please don’t bother Team HubPages again?  Why would I let anyone there know if I “have  any other questions or concerns?”   Someone there should take a lesson in how to give respectful  answers to the real concerns that many of us have.  It doesn’t take any longer to give a useful answer than it does to zip off a non-answer.  IMO

          Very sorry to hear that you got such a frustrating response. It is definitely nobody's intent to be patronizing or abrupt. Many times Mods are just doing their best to get through a large number of emails asap. I will mention this to the Team.

      @ ibrummer . . . No one asked me, but "I" am still having a struggle designating my hubs to their rightful place. (e.g. "How to Fix Your Chevy 4x4," should be with man-related hubs, not "Gender and Relationships.") I just do the best I can and pray for the best.

    I am at my the very end of my patience and feel left out, as I know you do. The emails fired off from the Team are flippant and thoughtless. I don't care if I sound petty or impatient, and anyone that finds I am writing without due diligences, I will consider probably has more than one of their Hubs in the better operating niche sites.
    Oh well, sit and wait, for weeks, not days is the operating speed here.
    My favorite tool is In The Spotlight on our profile page. I change my choices according to the seasons and I find I get a little proactive satisfaction using it and my carefully chosen and original photos look stellar. I have to pat myself on the back.

    There are a lot of hubs here they've put in nonrelated categories or categories that don't fit according to keywords. I don't think the Editors know more about "our" hubs than we do!  One of my 5 hubs on "food" got put into Delishably and it gets no more traffic than the other ones. I'm here by default and not making any money for over 2 years. The $50.00 payout I've never met. Frankly, my hubs don't really fit on "article" sites but I don't know where else to go. I made a lot more money on Squidoo, RIP smile
