Please all hubbers do note that scammers are sending messages to hubbers in the form of friendship request.Beware!
I've noticed! There must be a rash of new hubbers. At least all the emails that I've received have been from new ones with no hubs published.
Forums also getting spammed daily. Are they using any BOT?
Having been on HubPages for three years now, I have to say this is nothing new. This sort of thing goes on all the time.
There are some sites who require that a member has been a member and an active one for a qualifying period of time before they can post in the forums. Does anyone agree that this is a good idea?
I may have said no but after last week I think it would be a good idea...
Even knowing that I wouldn't be able to post this very opinion (since I am a newbie) I am willing to say that, yes, there should be some restriction. Newbies should have to have some type of history here and active hubs before they are allowed full access to the site. This would also help them to take the proper time in figuring out what to write about and how to set up their hub...
Good idea, kudos.

Recently we've had several cases where Hubbers have been able to work together to get plagiarizing sites taken down. Those threads are very important but it's all too easy for Hubbers not to notice them. If we had a forum dedicated to that subject, we'd all be aware of the need to keep an eye...

I have noticed that the majority of the answers to the various posts I have read are by individuals with high Hub scores - and by a fairly small group of individuals, too. So, I deduce these answers are accurate, and they know what they're talking about (at least related to the posts I have...

There are a lot of us who haven't been feeling safe on the forums. They've felt stalked, harassed and browbeaten.Sadly, some folks go with the letter of the law, but not the spirit of it in their posts.For an excellent post on why we need Forum Moderators, check out what Makingamark says here...

In the past many Hubbers, including myself, have seen the "Report a Problem" or "Need Help" threads as a way to either get a policy explained, or as a way to escalate an urgent problem when emails weren't eliciting a response. It is now obvious that is no longer the case,...
