How often do you forum?
There is more interaction in the forum section than in the Q&A, does this appeal to you? why or why not? what topic are you drawn to in the forum section?
i haven't been there much lately but i like to respond to whatever i find interesting.
I really enjoy spending time in the forums, you can voice your opinion on a wide variety of topics, and I learn quite a bit more in there about a lot of interesting things. It has the advantage of getting quick answers to your questions, developing conversations and getting to know some great people. I tend to get involved and follow more with topics relating to how to improve my Hubpages, increase traffic and of course earnings. Probably spend too much time in there.
Forums are where I learn a lot on the tech side from other hubbers. On the Q&A section I try to help the newer hubbers
I love the knowledge sharing section of the forum and the sections of personal interest like health, need help ask .. etc
I think there is more POSITIVE interaction here, in the Q & A than in the forums. And frankly, what passes for "interaction" in the forums (perhaps I got involved in the wrong forums, of course) tends to degenerate into mean-spirited, incoherent zoos.
I don't forum as much as I used to when I first joined HubPages four months ago. But there is one hubber, a guy called pburger, who hosted forums that I always enjoyed participating in. But it doesn't seem he's been around lately.
The iinteraction is much better in the comment section of individual hubs, that draw many multiple comments, than in the forums. The focus is better and the tone is far more respectful and congenial.
I rarely forum... I like to pop in on the questions every now and then, but don't really engage in the forums too often.

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...

Has anyone else noticed a serious drop in quality among the Question portion of HubPages? For the past several weeks, nearly every question that is featured in the "my account" section has been ripe with misspellings and just contain a general lack of worth in my opinion. I feel the...

I read both forum entries and answers/questions entries but the two features seem to overlap. Many of the questions asked in "answers" are technical questions asked by hubbers about HP. Some elicit long threads of answers just like in the forums. Since the "questions/answers"...

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...

There's been a lot of discussion of forum rules and policies recently, as well as criticism of the HubPages staff, so Paul and I agreed that a thread reiterating our position was in order.The rules are very clear:No personal attacks in the forums. Substantive debate and differences of opinion...

If I may be so bold as to make a request of HubPages, I would like you to please re-examine at this time your decision to ban Jerrico Usher from the Hub Forums.He has proven himself to be quite mindful of the mistake he made before and seems to me to be waaay to smart to make the same mistake...
