The amount of bad vibes and paranoia in the forums lately are about to slop over the top of my gumboots and stain my socks.
Here's 3 rules for enjoying hubpages:
1. Write good hubs.
2. Take part in forums
3. Ignore the trolls
4. Don't even look at numbers or measurements of any kind.
Eric absolutely spot on. Although I tend to pick my forums very very carefully and don't get too involved.
I meant that in the nicest way possible. I think its important to be good to the good looking elderly
It's easy and tempting to participate in an ever escalating shitfight over some minor issue. In my view, it's better to save one's energy and talents for the battles that matter.
I agree with you Eric, Its been a year since I joined Hubpages, although I have not been too active in producing hubs I have maintained my hubscore through interactive ways. I haven't come across such remarks too often thankfully. But nevertheless I aspire to explore my writing through this wonderful channel & make some good frnds all the while
By Hubpages standards I'm still a newby and luckily haven't had sniping on the forums although I have had some strange comments left on my hubs, but then, some of my hubs are strange.
Yeah Eric. I hear you're now famous; immortalised in film no less.
Lol oh so you saw my other one, I was going to put you in that one too but I thought you may kill me..Yes I had too much time on my hands today to get into mischief so I channeled it into this huge blonde energy force and wa---lahhh you have the finished product.As we say in Russian Девочка должна сделать то, что должна сделать девочка.
Some banter is fun; that's one purpose of forums. Some people seem to live in the forums trying to stir things up as much a possible. I try not to get involved with personal snipes; I try to stay to the issues.
As far as hubs go; I suck at marketing. I write what I feel and I guess at tag words after the story is written. I love fiction writing and everyone knows that's a money making dead end. I haven't made a nickel and probably never will. I could be a poster child for Internet Marketing Failures of America and I have no problem with that.

For the newbies and experienced Hubpage members, it seems that it takes some work to stay alive on Hubpages. From writing hubs to answering questions to being on the forums, I do admit it is fun either way but it takes a lot of work.I know most experienced hubbers advise not to worry about...

It looks like a fourth of my feed lately is comprised of new people wanting the rest of us to tell them how to write. All day I get request after request for help on passing the Quality Assessment. I mean Really? Many of your requests are just one step above being a jumble of mis-spelled words...

I am reviled yet my forums create all kinds of participation. I like and I am not going anywhere!There are some who indicated a boycott to not speak ever on what I write. They are writers heretics. I bless them and invite them to stay away. This is not written for you.Writers here are often...

There are some troubled men who regularly use forums, and they have not a single hub in their profiles. How come? How is it allowed? I do not get it--- Is HubPages a chat-website?

I took a hiatus for awhile from Hub Pages! However, in the past week or so, I have added new hubs participated in forums, asked a question or two, participated with the Hub Hopper, have read some Hubs, yet my Hubber Score is lower than it was when I was doing nothing. I don't get it!

Is the growth sustainable? When I arrived 4 months ago, we had 400,000 hubs. What is it now, 500,000? Does this site really benefit from people writing almost identical hubs on the same topics?When somebody arrives they are told to write, write, write, write. 30 in 30 basically. I am being a little...
