I am going to be the moderator in this challenge, and i am going to be fishing out hubs without quality in this contest,so always visit this forum for the lists,and you are also welcomed to post any hub of low quality during the challenge. When posting, please indicate one or two points of error in your choiced hub.
Has the HubPages team asked (or accepted) you to volunteer, or is this something you're doing on your own?
Hey accofranco, thanks for the thought, but we don't need any additional moderation and plus, this is a challenge that will hopefully help our quality improve along the way.
I'm going to leave this thread up, but I'm locking it due to the fact that you're actually not a moderator of the Hub Challenge.
Also, as a note -- all of us here at HubPages are always open to Hubbers helping out and coming up with great ideas for our community (look at the HubNugget/HubMob teams), but before declaring anything like this, please give us a shout first so that we can talk about all of the details and what-not.
So, once again accofranco, thanks for the thought, but could you please ask a member of the HubPages team before declaring anything like this again? It makes everything way less confusing.
Hmm who appointed you God? There has always been the ability to flag a hub as sub-standard - use it
Thanks Lissie for your honest comment,but this one is above flagging a hub,this is to ensure standard here on hubpages though, the motive of the challenge might not just be quality,but quality is highly needed before hubpages database gets flooded with substandard hubs, don't you think it makes sense?
No there is no difference - there are several options to flag a hub - the relevant ones are probably:
# Spam - Solely promotes another site, especially when Hub links all point to one site
# Low Quality - Empty, nearly empty or could not be useful or interesting to anyone
I think you can be assured that hubpage management know exactly how to protect their site in the face of "spammers" - they have pretty darn well to date and every hub I've seen tagged with hubchallenge has been nowhere near spam
Unless so Lissie. I will then sit back at the pool side and observe things then. Thanks for the guidiance, respect.
Yep... No need to appoint anyone or to appoint oneself. The HubPages team should cover it as usual.
This is a very weird thing to do. However, after Mark Knowles published his flurry of husb this morning I can see that my inbox could quite quickly become full up with new hubs by hubbers who I am fans of. Apologies if I don't reply to them all or leave messages etc, I am rather busy at the moment (hence not taking part in the challenge).
I'm not comfortable with this at all.
I am very, VERY insecure about my writing (even though I'm sitting at a 100 author score, I know, I know!) and I didn't enter this as some kind of a contest. This, for me, was a "can I actually write 80,000 words in 30 days?" And if so "I can write a novel! Finally!" This was supposed to be something fun and encouraging.
I have, of course, put myself on the line here by saying that I'm insecure, but I'd prefer to be honest. What if you (or somebody else) doesn't *like* my hubs. Are you (they) then going to flag the hub because you don't agree with what I have written?
I'm sorry, but if there is a "moderator" to this challenge, I might just have to take my business somewhere else.
I think it'll be fine. We have enough people in the HubPages community that will flag poor hubs, as they have in the past. We won't see many Flagship type hubs floating around probably because of the challenge, but that doesn't mean once the challenge is done you can't go back and edit/optimize! Although that's why I opted to only do 30 as opposed to 100. I want to build better quality hubs with around 1500 or so words because I've noticed they bring in more traffic & usually more money. Plus I am going to be working in link juice along the way. Trying a whole new approach... will see how it goes.
@EM - I used to be insecure about my writing because there are some really good writers here on HubPages and, when I read their work, mine seems like chicken feed next to some. But then I realized, I'm still making money, so how much does it really matter?
I agree, I think that you're way overstepping your bounds. Flag a hub if you don't like it. The hubpages team will take care of the rest.
I don't like the thought of being called out on the carpet and having my hub posted publicly as "inferior" to somebody else's hub. How absolutely humiliating and how cruel that would be to do to someone who is genuinely trying!
I honestly don't think that anybody is in this challenge to "win." The reward is the Adsense earnings and it's awfully difficult to earn in Adsense if you aren't writing quality hubs.
I don't want to see a hub of mine called out on the carpet like that and publicly posted as being "inferior" and it would break my heart to see it happen to any of my friends, either.
I agree with everyone else here. There should not be a moderator here unless the hubpages staff tells us otherwise.
Anyone can flag a hub, or give it a thumbs up or thumbs down. There are no officially appointed moderators outside of the HubPages Team.
Thank you for clarifying that, Paul. So our hubs *aren't* going to be posted on the forums as flagged if another member feels they are "less than par?"

I haven't been actively writing on Hub Pages in a while and want to get back into this and this might get me motivated.I remember hearing about a 100 hub challenge some years ago and I know that I could not possibly write 100 hubs in a month. That is why I am attempting to do this in a...

Yep, I'm going to be writing 100 Hubs in 30 days starting next Monday, May 11th. This might sound a little crazy (because it is), but I promise that I have a somewhat logical reason for doing it.So here's the story -- Yesterday I was surfing around the web, looking at some blogs that have been...

I understand some people are worried about the "antiHubChallenge" or whatever it's called, and I just wanted to say something on a personal level to get my own thoughts out in the open about it. And this is my PERSONAL view - yes, we do have a HubChallenge team and we...

I started the Hub Challenge on Sept 28th, so my challenge will run from Sept 28 to Oct 28th making 30 days. I thought I would take a moment out and post what progress has been made so far. Well since you aren't supposed to discuss Adsense earnings that's out, but as far as traffic goes....Sept 1st...

I've scrounged HubPages for this challenge as I posted one Sunday, one yesterday, and am working on what today. With only 20 hubs in the years I have been on here, I think it would be a great challenge. Is anyone currently undertaking this? Do you have any other advice?
by Becca Hubbard-Woods 2 years ago
I'm just coming back after a several year hiatus, and one of the most exciting things that started when I was here was the HubChallenge. Originally, it was 30 hubs in 30 days. Now I see it's changed to either updating your hubs or 30 hubs in 60 days. I tried the original once, and I failed...
