I have spent an inordinate amount of time (today) reading how Squidoo works. I discovered I'd joined a bit back. Probably when I was a little sideways from a night out.
Anyway, I like to know how things work so I've read and read and read. Had some stuff lying around. Connected it together and thought I'd have a stab. Noob style.
Upshot is I've been trying to faff and blag my way through loading content, in part using a hub Darkside wrote (thanks DS - it helped) for the last three hours. Pushed the damn 'publish' button and whoop whoop I got this:
We're working on a tiny database change, and it will only take a few minutes. Hang in there! Thanks.
(In the meantime, stop by the Squidoo Flickr Group
and swap Squid pics--or design your own!)
Anyway it's probably crappily arranged in the grand scheme of things but still. I'm hopping
All i know is that Squidoo is a funny name. Other than that, i have virtually no idea what you're talking about. However it seemed that you connoted some mild frustration along the line.
I guess the site's like this one kata. I don't know much about it to be honest. I was kind of figuring it all out as I was loading an article - or lens - and met the error message.
I was a bit ticked off. Technology ...
Did you say u used a Hub Darkside wrote:) :)This shows only 3 replies, does this mean three authors I had never noticed that before.

oh is that darksided frog or frogsdroppings dark?
I received an e mail Frogsdropping and frogs spawn.(Son)
It has to be the same eh. He's good I profiled him, I didn't really believe the two were the same but yeah pretty sure now.
frogspawn is genuinely my son. And not an alter ego. He writes on here on occasion.
And needs a girlfriend

Welcome Previous Squidoo and New HubPage Writers,I am rather new to HubPages myself, but I wanted to extend a warm greeting to HubPages. My question to all of you is: how do you like it so far? I myself was never a Squidoo writer so I am asking earnestly. Is there something's that we have that...

We haven't had enough time to go through all the data, but I wanted to post to Hubbers and at least acknowledge we see dramatic traffic changes particularly for recently imported Squidoo accounts.At the same time, it looks like established HubPages accounts are holding up well (there is always some...

The nice thing about the new Amazon capsule is that it displays the description text in the same size as the rest of the hub. This can be beneficial and may turn into better sales. So I reorganized one of my hubs, moving much of my text from text capsules into the Amazon description fields. This...

I know, we have heard it before, but its getting silly now. I have been writing on here for four years, and my traffic has been okay. Its gone down before, and yes its come back up. But this time its really driving me nuts. How can hubs that have been going good suddenly lose so much traffic its...
