Is it good or bad that hubs are rated by other hubbers?
In the account page, you find a sign up says "Help us hop some hubs". Do you think this is really helpful?
Good, only if the hub hopper rates the hubs based on the quality and crediblity of the article. Bad, if the hub hopper allows his political or religious leanings dictate their basis as to what is a quality or a credible article.
I have to agree with caltex. It's definitely a good thing, otherwise how can you really know if your article is good or bad?
Hub Hopping is extremely helpful to all of us for one simple reason. The new Google standards tend to lower everyone on the site if there is a large enough percentage of poor Hubs. So HP has made it easy for all of us to flag Hubs that don't meet the standards. See the details in the "Official HubPages Announcements" Forum. Look for "New Flagging Reasons." They can't do it alone. It's simply just too much to review.
If the Hubber is honest and rates the Hub based on whether it provided them with an entertaining read or a information, then hubbers rating hubbers is good. It makes us a community.
Having said that, not everyone operates by those parameters. I have had answers to questions rated down because I did not agree with the person asking.
Good. Feedback on how well you write is like feedback on how well a restraunt cooks.
Yes, I think it is helpful in winnowing out some of the utter rubbish.
It's good really, especially if you are writing from your own perspective and just being you and informative in what you write about, but whatever you write isn't going to please everyone all the time and that's why leaving a comment maybe helpful so the authors(hubbers) could add that info in that's missing or try and improve a hub article.
Really though, it's hubbers you want that like your articles that you want to rate your hubs, but then outsiders that come from search engines are the main target to try and make them share your work and rate it accordingly too.

I think not.The Help Forum, and Official HubPages Announcements should be open to them until they create at least one hub, at which time Extreme Makeover, Report a Problem or Suggest a New Feature and Suggest Report a Problem or Suggest a New Feature might open.After 5, open 30 Hubs in 30...

OK, so I just finished categorizing all of my Hubs (I have 31) and I wanted to let everyone know about it....you know, just as a way to encourage all of the other Hubbers out there to cross their category finish line, too.I took a screenshot of my 'All of your Hubs are categorized' message and...

Forgive me for asking if this topic has already been hashed out on here. I don't visit the forums often and I have tried to find the answer but since I can't...hoping someone else can help me. What are these large (quite obnoxious) Kroger ads on some of my hubs? They don't...

What can/should Hubpages do to improve/moderate the quality of the published content?Let's face it, a large proportion of stuff published here is of really dismal quality and as such, the negative effect of the Panda update is not a surprise. What practical steps can Hubpages take to control...

I've been doing a lot of thinking about the types of services we offer Hubbers and how to help Hubbers improve.A few services that have been suggested- grammar and spell checking- suggesting edits- providing images/media upon request- formatting help (breaking hubs into multiple text capsules,...

(i posted this elsewhere but apparentIy it belongs here)'d love to easily find out WHICH if my hubs were marked that way.The only way I know now is to go through them one by one - and as I post more and more, that's getting tiresome.Have I (as usual) missed something obvious?
