How many Hubbers use the material gained from HubPages forums to write Hubs?
For me, the forums are a sideline, an additional amusement on HP--not the source for my hub material. I can get to know HP contributors by reading what they write, but I prefer to launch my own topics, for whatever they're worth.
It could theoretically be a great research tool.
Use the hubbers as your sample population
see what topics and trends are most popular
aggregate the most intelligent comments and links into a hub
It doesnt mean your trying to get hubbased traffic, just an easy way to see whats popular
But in answer to your question, never.
There are a lot of great things brought up in the forums but I write for whatever is going to bring me the money.
I should spend more times in the forums but being a marketer for me is a full time job along will all the other daily activities going on.

There are "hubbers" on HubPages who sign on but don't contribute in way of hubs. It seems that their main purpose is to troll contributing hubbers by commenting negatively on hubs they disagree...
