I encourage you to keep posting without hubbing. The boundary conditions of HubPages will be revealed. How low can a rating go? Can it go negative?
When you're banned for inactivity, will your posts vanish? Will your avatar persist?
No, not yet. Should I introduce myself?
OK, I checked. The Toadster has 492 Fans, 2 Hubs and the same rating as me. Somewhere in there is a lesson.
He's written many more than that. He deletes them, for reasons unknown. Probably dissatisfied by his previous writing... So that explains that..
Toads are mysterious beings. I did see that he had 2 hubs and then there was only one. He is no human, so I'm not trying to fully comprehend it.
Just brainstorming... perhaps Mr. Kermit is test-marketing his writing here, then publishing elsewhere for more profit.
Regardless of why, how is a better question. How does the rating stay so high? Wouldn't it gradually drop back down?
He is practicing and building up his confidence - Like Lita, I hope to see a GT book one day. A great raw talent
Please tell me, Sufidreamer, I'm not the suicidal girl any more.
No worries, MangoGirl
Not going to say too much, because he does not like too much attention - become his fan and read his hubs when they come out - I think that you will enjoy them
EDIT: What are you after? Writing is a broad field - if you let us know what sort of writing you want to do, we can point you towards some of the best Hubbers.
Now, I'm just saying, lol, lil Mango...Don't be baiting our friend Sufi, or you will have to be sliced up, --Just a little bit...you know, I'm not that mean when it comes down to it.
The rating stays high due to the amount of hubs that were previously published and then unpublished, because they are not clearly documented on his profile as a hub does not mean they are not there. I have 21 hubs that were published and then I unpublished due to them being seasonal so aids with the score remaining high. Hope this helps.
He is one of the best Hubbers very witty Earnesthub is cool Londongirl is nice, and Countrywomen.....badcompany and all those that Lucey has said, including of course Lucey they would be the most popular. Recently I like the style of Mango girl who posted this Forum Go girl
impossible to state because there are so many wonderful hubbers, the one's who write on a regular basis with good content.
Are you going to write anything or do you just like to hang around on forums drawing attention to yourself?
Good Morning Uninvited Writer. Hope you are enjoying this beautiful Sunday Morning!
I usually do not mess with the forums but this morning waiting to get on the roof. i thought i would read around...Can't figure what is up with folks who do not write on hubpages but splash around the forums like shark bait?????
Since you don't say who your favorite hubbers are, am I to conclude you either don't read or you're actually just advertising yourselves to me?
This thread is really scary - channeling Mark K is pure horror movie. CSA is waiting to get 'up on the roof' - this also sounds disturbing. Life can't be that bad. Can we talk you down?
And Mango 'circling like shark bait' and her score going negative - all very dark.
Which reminds me, Darkside is always a good read. I have loads of favorites but am reluctant share in case I miss people out. Generally I'd start with hubbers with a score close to 100 to see what works well here.
Well said.. Have you considered the raw talent of Kiwis as Shark Bait though? We catch sharks by hand here.. seriously.. extreme fishing.. abit like this forum really.
well that leaves me out lol ,its ok Im obviously taking the long road there.
I'm pretty new, so I don't know many, but MotherHubber is freaking hilarious. Start with her hubs about Dora the Explorer.
I think he's dissatisfied with previous writing.... And he should be. He's actually a very good writer--better than I ever thought, with that one short story of his.
Really. Up there, if he so chose to work at it.
I've noticed lots of action on the forums seems to increase the hubscore...I believe hubpages may have changed the formula for these things from previous months--maybe with the upgrade to the site.
May want to knock it off just a bit, unless you do want to be outed.
My purposes were specific in this case to Sufi alone.
Well that is a good thing as it appears that you are taking this forum seriously. What is quite interesting is that I have noticed that you like to argue with other hubbers and make derogatory comments. My recommendation is to read the hubs that other hubbers write about instead of asking who our favourite hubbers are. There are so many wonderful writers you to may find your own favorites so you will not have to ask. FYI one last tip before starting a thread check and see if it already has been a topic of discussion and read the rules of HP as it may simplify things for you. If you walk into a forum with a chip on your shoulder you may suffer reprecussions.
Nor do I....at times. So outing someone sort of foolish would be no problem for me, Might even be fun!! And that's what you're after, isn't it?
Thanks for watching my back, Lita, and making sure that an Ouzo-soaked old hippy does not trip over his own feet.
Developing an inkling........
I don't really have any favorites. I am discovering new people whose "voice" I admire every day; some because they share my POV and others because they are very different from me.
With only a few notable exceptions, I have found most "hubbers" very entertaining and enjoyable.
Kermit has no reasons for any actions... he just writes when he feels like it.
I don't think you are kermit GT, apparently she has blinder's on.
ahh its alright, besides I think Kermit is cool. Not as cool as Animal but what muppet is?
I think Miss Piggy is adorable she is always chasing kermit with her little pink self and Miss Piggy seems to be doing that with the comments that she has made.
For me picking a favorite author on HubPages would be like having to pick a star from the sky. There are many, many brilliant writers on here and I find more and more everyday. I think it's extremely motivating and stimulating. However, in my short time here I can gladly recomend some that are definitely worth the read:
KCC Big Country
James A Watkins
(In no way do I mean to offend anyone who is not on the list, I hope to encounter many more writers during my stay at HubPages.)
My advice MangoGirl is simply this: read and to explore. If you don't find the topic you are looking for then request it to be written. Either post it in a forum or go to the writer's profile and request it directly from them. For me, HubPages is about expression and connections and personal growth. Happy Hubbing, dear and may you find what you are looking for.
Nicely said Lucey and thanks for the mention but for good writing I would find you way surpass me. I just write humor but your writing is the sort that could one day get published. But for me I don't have a fav hubber, I find every person on here has a hub to write and each person has something special to say. Anyways another days work awaits, I wish you all well in your future writing. Lucey I love yer hair babe, and along with that whip maybe you just could be my fav hubber ; )
Very difficult to answer. almost as bad as which is your fav book or song.
How do u pick one?
there are so many good ones around
My favorites change with my mood. Sometimes I like funny hubs, sometimes serious etc, a wide range of hubs is what makes this hubpages so great

This forum has no ongoing moderation, so people are likely to emerge into passive-aggressive banter, or attack or defense mode. Without intervention these behaviors are rather common, if not typical to the human being.

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...

I am really upset over the whole discussion about the Apprenticeship program. Now disgruntled hubbers want to have the badge removed form our profiles.When I became an "elite", when it was known as that, I was treated really badly by some petty hubbers. When I joined the AP program I fell...

As jimmythejock was quick to pick up on a few days ago (man, he's good!), we have been working hard on coming up with a new overall look and feel for HubPages and in the process we've also added a few cool, new features that we think you'll all really like. We'll be launching this new redesign...

To date, I have been denied permission to ask and/or answer questions because of revenge? mark downs by disgruntled hubbers. I get blocked for a while, then un-blocked, then blocked again. Also some of my Q&As are deleted by HP staff without notice or a chance to defend my position. The Q&A...

I still think comments should be comments, not discussions, that is the purpose of a forum. Maybe it would be a good idea that every author has a forum automatically made in a widget on there profile page and the topics are always the title of the Hub. That way you can discuss it and always edit...
