    Hi friends, the new editors have completed their bios and you can now stop by the About Team page and meet them. You'll find their bios at the bottom. They're doing amazing in their training so far and should be up to speed soon. We are thrilled to be growing the team and increasing our capacity to focus on editing, and we're excited to have so many talented newcomers on board!

        Hi there,

        I'm afraid you are too young to have an account at HubPages. The Terms of Service says, "Only adults (18 years and over) may register for an Author account."

      That's quite some evolution hubpages have gone through.

      Between 2008 and 2012 the site didn't employ a single editor or anybody with a job which involved quality assurance (of content) of any sort.

      In fact it had an employee who effectively had the job of trying to encourage as many people to churn out as much content as quickly as possible, by enrolling hundreds of people into a '30 hubs in 30 days challenge'.

      That employee leaves, not long before the sh*t hits the fan in 2011 (not sure whether that employee had the foresight to see what was going to happen next, or his bosses did).

      Then another employee starts lashing out on the forum at all the various people who were to blame for the sites downfall with all of their low quality churned out tripe which had been actively encouraged by his former colleague, causing a significant number of writers to walk away in disgust (you'd be surprised how many walked away because of this employee, rather than the drastic loss of traffic and earnings). Not sure whether this employee was pushed because he'd begun abusing members late at night after a few drinks or not, but he should have been.

      Now hubpages has TWENTY TWO editors. Its amazing really, looking in from the outside as somebody who was very active on the hubpages of old and is merely observing the hubpages of new.

      Its a huge pivot on reflection (a positive one).

        Well, now. That's a barn burner post. big_smile

        I was going to follow you, but what is with the 0 0 0 ?

        Still want to follow, but don't want to put my foot in it. I've done that enough times already. Talk to me.

          This change by HubPages is a positive one. It is something I commented on before. HP relied on Artificial intelligence software to conduct their Quality Assessment Process. Guess what? It did not work very well. They have finally reach the same conclusion, at the end of the day, you need a human eyeball, checking the quality on articles. AI is just not good enouh yet.

          I'm sleep deprived so forgive me if this is obvious... but what do you mean "o o o"

          Do you mean 'articles, followers, following'?

          I can't remember what prompted me to create this account to contribute to the forum, but there was a reason (may have been a death?)

          But I did once have an account, a long time ago, which was something like... 759, 2900,500... 10 million views accolade :-D

          I am tempted to write a hub for old times sake and to see what the creation tools look like now, I'll see if I can churn one out in February.

          I do remember you, actually. ry*nk*tt was my old account, and real name (insert vowels).

    Welcome to all the new editors. Great bios, but adding a note about which niche sites they each work on would be nice to know too.

    1. Christy Kirwan profile image98
      Christy Kirwanposted 9 months agoin reply to this

      While some editors prefer specific sites, many tend to work wherever there is the most need, so there's often not a direct editor to site match.

    Welcome, new editors.

    Be advised there is some fear from the writers. As an example, my earnings would be twice as much now, but a 12-hub-matrix was recently slaughtered by an editor demanding an SEO-destructive alteration. Those 12 hubs are now elsewhere and have to start all over again as to getting Google's attention.

    Please be careful and please care. You have the power to really hurt people and to cause people real financial distress.

    I hear ya.  Let's not experiment or train newbies on our hubs. I am having difficulty as well. The editor changed my movie title. I fixed it and now I am told its duplicate content. What!!!?

      paradigmsearchposted 9 months agoin reply to this

      Do not slam the new editors.

      As to your complaint, seems legitimate. I hope HP learns from it.

    Never meant to slam the editors. Please don't put words in my posts. : ) Just agreeing that training and learning can cause mistakes. Nobody is perfect. I am so happy we have more editors.

    Kenna McHugh - I had the exact same problem about a year ago with the old HubPages editor team.  They edited a Hub of mine about an independent film. They changed what were facts into conjecture and changed the title to something that didn't make sense.  I was upset, because I actually know the people who are in the movie and I understand what it is and what its about.  The editor clearly didn't understand what it was or what it was about.  It seemed like they didn't take the time to read and comprehend my Hub.  To HubPage's credit, they did revert the article back to the facts, after I complained, but what a waste of my time. 

    I hope this new crop of editors doesn't act so recklessly.

      @HP Looks like you need to pay attention. I've told you mine, my experiences  were truly destructive.

      Kind of like to get this thread on a positive track.
