In the last few months...even last month to be exact the mood upon Hubpages has been more than dreary. Yes, there are quite of us who are loyally committed to HP and continue producing hubs and commenting on them as well.
But the all over mood is rather depressing. Whatever happened to the fun times we all had hijacking hubs? What about the forums? It just isn't the same. We used to take over hubs all together, united as one. And it was the best!!!!
We were all online together at the same time......
and now the sad truth:
When Goldentoad is on then Pest isn't. When Blondepoet is on then I am not. When Cindyvine is on then AEvans is not.....and the list could go on forever.
I feel that our universal schedule of Hubpage time has changed in our ever changing lives and we have not been able to enjoy HP as we did before.......
This is just my thoughts on the matter....feel free to comment.
You're referring to months when it would appear that you've only been here for 2 weeks.
Honestly I always enjoy my times on Hubpages. There are a few people who I talk to on and off the site, so for me it is always good here.
I also enjoy all my time on here. What I am talking about is when all of my good friends were all online at the same time and how much fun it was to comment on hubs at the same time and keep the conversations going and lively.... and how its different now!
I think a lot of people probably are doing the hubchallenge, so they don't have a lot of time to read and comment, let alone do hubjacking. I miss it, too.
thanks BP...this forum was for us ( GT, C.C. You, Me, AE, Cindy, Christoph, R.Blue, Maymong, Even B.C., Laughing Mom, KCC and others) And then all these unknown hubbers pop on here talking this and that....
A sockpuppet? Well DINGDONG....let me know when you are done playing with all of your sockpuppets and maybe I can borrow one....
who said sockpuppet and what does that mean I have not heard of that expression.
she was just being an smart ass since FP said I should make new friends...and Ding Dongs comment was "a sockpuppet"...so I said when she's done playing with hers then I can borrow one...
I am just being a smart ass right back..
You don't need those you have us guys grrr sock puppet indeed ROFL
I love it when you are feisty woooo hoooo it is the red hair I got no excuse for mine. It is 3.30am in morning here oh my ROFL naughty me
How do I know if you are a long time hubber? This says your this profile is here for just 2 weeks.
Well, if you all think I'm spoiling the fun here... Hmmm, I'd simply stay away. Cheers!!!
Hi Dingdong sorry just got back. She has been here nearly a year now but she closed her old name and made a new name 2 weeks ago as she got bored with the old name. Hubbers do that a fair bit or they sometimes have more than one profile, and are actually a few different hubbers but the same person lol
Thanks for the explanation, guess I had misunderstood while quoting Darkside's post about it
Oh J.J I know exactly what you mean. I have been mulling over it too. It is like esp as everything you said I have thought. Why is it I wonder? It never used to be like that. I adored the highjacking, that was the highlight of my day. Damn I miss it very much. How can we get it back???????
Do you remember that day when we were all in the chatroom you know hahah. May kept threatening to post what we were saying and suddenly C.C walked in on it and bang he was away hahaha.I will never forget that day it was priceless
LMAO we were all like wild animals,yes I have been called a wild cat before. Oh thank goodness AE was not there she would have fainted. Then there was that guy who kept coming in saying where is AE? I thought it was AE playing a trick on us herself loool
Yea half an hour away form 4.00am and my alarm is set for 6.00am, oh alas and alack.
I’m very new to hubpages and would like to know what is the meaning of the term hijacking hubs.
Hi Barb it just meant we all used to follow each other to the one hub and talk to each other in that Hubbers comment box, it certainly boosted the other Hubbers comments up and we had lots fun.
yeah this whole place needs a good hubjack and an adult section so my hubs don't keep gettin banned.
ROFL too right Raider oooo nice to see you Raider I have missed you. I had a dream about you the other night. We were in a warplane, and I was eating prawns while you were chatting up the air hostesses, then suddenly we crashed, and I think we were wiped out after that haha
always good to see you too BP, my last hub had you in it but the hubpolice thought it was too adult since it had words.
Ohhhhh noooo carn the crows and shoot the cows. Darn I never got to see, it sounds like you need a secretary Raider to assist you, Miss Carrie Oakey is my name can I be of assistance?
What is VTF ohhh virtual friends when did u join there? I never saw you last time I was there woo hoo. Hang on a tic, you don't have a alter ego do you? I would laugh if you were C.C or Toady ROFL.
JJ...thanks for the mention....yes we have had some great times hubjacking.....endless conversations all over Hubpages following one another from hub to hub....I have comment logs to prove it. I'm sorry I haven't been around as much....big workload....exhausted when I get home....and BP doesn't love me anymore....never talks to me.....Just Kidding BP!!!we'll have to jack a hub soon!!!!
I am glad to hear from you...and yes we all need to do it again soon!
I agree, thanks for the mention! I've been around. I was busy with the hub challenge and trying to keep up with reading other hubs. Gave thumbs up even when I didn't have time to comment. I miss the hubjacking days too.
Oh Blue not true not true you don't talk to me ROFL
ooops I seem to have stepped into a bit of a re-union thingy
tippy -toes out
And in a week and a half, i'll be in a different time zone again, yippee!!!!
Hola Chica -- I totally agree with you. It's been quite awhile since there was an all-out hubjacking. I think the hub challenge has quite a bit to do with it. People who normally would be spending quality time commenting are instead writing hubs morning, noon and night.
I've also noticed that HP is a very dynamic place. When I joined there was a strong "bloc" of hubbers who hubbed every day. Among them, Christoph Reilly, Spryte, Shadesbreath, AEvans, Mistyhorizon, Gwendymom, Agvulpes, AJCor, Pam Roberson, Constant Walker, KCC Big Country, Countrywomen, and probably others I'm forgetting (including YOU in your old incarnation!).
Then some new hubbers came along like Goldentoad, Lita S., BP, Cindyvine, R Blue, etc. Now these hubbers are all "fixtures" on the site and quite a few other newcomers have come and made their mark. They have become the new "core."
People seem to naturally cycle on and off.
I have a question for ya. Do you prefer actually jacking a "hub" or do you like making long post threads on the Forums?
Yes, I think
Hey MM you looking mighty fine this morning.....you seem to have recovered from all that energy we expelled into those other wrestlers the other day.....although they used foul play we triumphed ROFL
MM...I think you hit the nail right on the thumb....I believe the hub challenge screwed with the dynamic of the entire experience of Hubpages. My hits fell off...everyone was cranky...I didn't join the challenge....just seemed kinda stupid if you ask me.....fast food junk of writing.
Lol no I was not cranky just a little frustrated
OK....so MANY were cranky.....except KCC....I stand corrected...:-)
One thing I've learned is that things continually evolve and nothing stays the same. One minute there's hubjacking, then there's challenging, now it's forum hubber bashing. Usually, things go full cycle, so I'm sure that Hubjacking will return in time.
You're right, of course, Cindy. We go where the action is.
I guess if we're meant to be hanging out on the Forums debating the price of LV scarves and buggering sheep and chocolate orgasms... well, so be it!
Then, out of the blue, someone will write a hub that pulls the whole gang over like a magnet.
For example, we could all go over to Cindy's right now and talk about Peter Pan!
I'll be Mrs Darling, the forums are better now you have finished hub challenge, the party last week was brill
the forums exhausted me this past weekend, I think my skin wrinkled like a prune in the spa and I ate too much chocolate and drank too much champagne.

I just saw two new editing notices on my dashboard but when I went to the hubs it looks more like they've been affected by some kind of bug rather than an edit. The comments have been turned into bullet point lists and it looks terrible.https://soapboxie.com/social-issues/why …...

This has been perplexing me for a while - has something changed or have I just gone ga-ga?Being in a different time zone from most Hubbers, I rely on being able to click the "Your" button to catch up with who's posted on threads since I commented.Recently I've been missing comments...

Have you noticed that any discussion that has to do with Christianity is always used by the antagonists, who never seem satisfied with the Christian blood they suck in these forums, to divert the purpose of the original argument? I think they have let themselves to be degenerated into an autopilot...

Isn't this Q&A moderated? It has been taken over by religious (Christian) wackos.There are forum threads where they can debate how many angels dancing on their pinheads and write about the ***** that no one would otherwise read.I thought this Q&A section was supposedly about...

Does anyone actual post a status on here?I see that there is a status tab where I can post something here on Hubpages. Just wandering if anyone actually uses it.

I always enjoy seeing what the people I have fanned have written. Their new Hubs come as a link to my mailbox. But the last two days my HubPages e-mails have been strangely quiet and I miss it. Any ideas?
