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
