    Hi all,

    Does anyone know if this program is still operating or being managed by anyone at HubPages?  Weeks ago I sent a couple of emails proposing capstone hubs to, but I haven't heard anything back--yea or nay. I wrote it off to the staff being inundated, but the more I think of it the odder it seemed that I didn't receive either a "sure go ahead" or a "no thank you" in reply.

    Might perhaps my emails have gone astray?  Or has the program been discontinued/paused, or is this no longer being managed by a person who's present and accounted which case we shouldn't bother proposing further capstone hubs in the future?

    Thanks if anyone, official or not, has any news.

    I haven't even thought about it come to think of it. I haven't been keeping up with updates to the site other then the code box and the new top bar...

    I would like to also know this honestly.

    As far as I know it's still going.

    About 5 weeks ago I was given the greenlight for a Capstone series (or 3).

    It's Maddie who deals with them. And she'd have been absolutely snowed under in the Quality Control department with the onslaught of HubChallenge hubs last month (and part of this month).

    Just a quick question, how did you contact them?

    I've used this page recently about a couple of other points and I haven't heard back from them. Usually HP HQ staff are prompt with their responses.

      I contacted them at the email above directly from my gmail email account about 4 weeks ago.
