The Hub Police need YOU - Sign up now!

    Recruits needed:

    Are you the kind of Hubber who:

    (1)    Loves to point out the hub rules to all other Hubbers, especially to the Noobs, after all you’ve been here for months or years and they should damn well ‘Respect My Authorata!'


    (2)    Instead of trying your best to post helpful replies to threads even if you’ve come across them a fair few times (after all they’re new, they don’t know you’ve had to read it a 1000 times before) you prefer to dish out your wisdom in short snappy doses such as ‘This is not the forum for this, this does not belong here, have you not read the TOS?’ always in a patronizing manner.

    If you can answer yes to at least one of the above, then we need YOU to help make Hubpages a more controlled and regulated but less fun and helpful place to be.

    Don’t hesitate, ‘Sign up now!’

      That should be 'authoritah' - the h is silent, but don't beat yourself up about it, it's a common n00b mistake.

    lolol - you mean we're gonna get Hubulators? WOOOOOOO wink

    I'm a Noob - and no one has ever been gripey with me. Still, there's always a first time.

    Sign me up anyway. I don't know enough about the rules but I can come up with nice new ones.

    Like On Mondays, between the hours of this and that, all hubbers must produce one top quality article that is bloody brilliant and backlinked from here to the moon. With nice shiny tags too.

    It could be the Monday Mooners Rule big_smile

    Hey Hub Police.
    Who the HELL do you think you are.
    Been here five minutes and you're already throwing your weight around.

    And suckered a few hubbers into your net as well I see.

    We don't like your kind around here.
    Be in my office in 5 minutes.
    I'll bloody well give you "respect my Authorata".

    (I'll forgive AEvans. She goes all trembly at the sight of a uniform. And make sure Mr. Knowles gets industrial strength waders and a diving helmet for his beat in the Religious forums. And a couple of boxes of Kraft Spaghetti and cheese in case he gets peckish)

    Do I get a badge and a gun?  Can I run the siren?  Do I get bonus points for being extra bossy, rude and obnoxious?  How 'bout if I tell a moderator what they're doing wrong?

      HubPoliceposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      You surely do, and one of those nice electic-shocky-tazer-thingy-mabobs.  Gold stars for using the 'report' button, especially if your use of said button is completely unjustified or based upon your own personal prejudice or feelings of superiority.

      Now who wants dough-nuts?

        Yes Bishop Knowles. There's a LOT of work ahead.
        I've already reported the post fragment (above) for crimes against the English language.

        And against the American idiom. dough-nuts indeed!

          I need to step out for awhile to get my pubes shaved down to police regulation number one, it's a requirement of the job.

      Mark Knowlesposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      Well - you can start by using the English language properly and stop using words such as "thingy."

      Kindly re-write that last statement in proper English or find yourself reported and flagged.

      You are right - this is going to be cool. big_smile

    If I could be bothered to go anon, I too would speak my mind. Let me just say that being new is a crime in most groups. I have seen more than one toddler trying to assasinate a new born brother or sister.

    What the heck is this about?

    You can't just waltz into the forums and tell everyone what to do, how to act or what rules to follow, not clear cut.. the point is to make them feel bad in the process.  It's not trolling, either, it's re-education.
