I only just realised today, when trying to find a forum post I knew I'd replied to, that there are two different forum sections - and that each one has a DIFFERENT list under 'my posts'. Am I really really behind or is this something that everyone knows?
Also, is Hubpages planning to ever make the forums more mobile friendly? In the 7 years I've been here, there have been no major changes to the forums. Maybe if Hubpages had Tapatalk or any other easy way to access forums on mobile, then maybe people would visit them more and it could be the a more active place?
I think it's been a few years now (a very long time, I'm sure it's years) since topical forums are separated from the general HP based forum topics.
It's been like that for a very long time and I, for one, am glad of it. The topical forums are full of so much rubbish.
I only realized it myself recently, when a thread I had been following had a random recipe added to it by a spammer, and a mod moved the whole thing to a cooking forum. While poking around over there, I think I ran into DB Cooper and Amelia Earhart.
I haven't figured out how to list all discussions I've started. "Yours" only lists forums that I have contributed to, both mine and others'. Perhaps it would be useful also if the topical forums could have their content shifted to relevant niche sites. I think it would complement/enhance them and also give non-HubPages visitors the opportunity to submit questions which could be answered by "experts"! Or maybe it's better to keep questions and answers on hubs?

As an out gay man, I'd like to address a topic that I've noticed in recent months that's extremely disturbing. Specifically, I'm talking about forum posts that are nothing more than homophobic sentiments, disguised in the form of a question. I'm not going to link to these posts because I...

Really? This is supposed to be where people can talk about HP and writing, but it is full of inconsequential nonsense and spammers. Surely HP moderators, you can do something about this? There must be a place for quotes and games on the Topical forums?Please clean it up and move 'Freeform' over to...

Sorry for the inconvenience- but that's what I just saw. HubPages staff, Jason Menayan, who runs another account called 'livelonger', just posted here in the link below, to save the Hubs from sinking??? Hah!I quote forum rules- "Multiple Accounts: While we don't prohibit having more than one...

I seldom use the forum because I frequently get treated with a condescending attitude or bashed no matter what I ask or say. For instance, the last time I used the forum, a long-time user decided to argue against my desire for hubscores to reflect the eligibility of hubs for the network sites by...
