Hoping new hubs
If I try to hop new hubs, I can see few options like "vote up", "vote down" etc. I can see option "hop!". Can you tell me what operate it resolve? I know that this question seems to be stupid, but I'm feared to touch this button ;-)
Don't feel dumbfounded I didn't know about that either can't wait til someone that knows replies. great question I would like to know also...
The option to hop just gives you the option to go to the next article without casting a vote up or down. So if you feel that you do not want to cast a vote on that particular article then hop will let you pass by that article without affecting the author.
I hope this helps!
nah dont be afraid to touch that button ..Hop just mean you jump to next hb like a frog
If you want to vote on a Hub article while in the HubHopper, you have to hit the "Stop Hopping" button in the capsule on the top. That will bring you to the Hub you are viewing so that you can vote. Once your done, go to "My Account" and click on ("Help us out Hop some Hubs!" button on the top) and then you will be back hopping again!
Hope this helps!
Wvierra and J.S.Matthew: I'm thankfully for so nice answers. Thank you ;-)
Hub hopping gives you the chance to read things you normally would not search for. I found great hubs that way. I even got ideas for new hubs. Do give input to the hubs you hop. It helps people know where they stand,
Hub hopping is mostly a way for you to be a moderator. We all have to look out for this site to make it stay successful. If you see something that is poorly written with lots of spelling and grammar errors - vote it down.
If you see something that just looks like it's . . . .spam, and was only published in order to "game the search engines," and has no true integrity or art to it, flag it as spam.
The moderators know their jobs - and if you flag something as spam they'll look at it eventually, and if they agree that it is spam, then it'll be taken out of circulation.
If Hubpages becomes over ran by spam again - that hurts every single one of us that try to produce quality content here. You help not just yourself, but all the "real" authors here by hoping hubs.

I decided to give hub hopping a try. I was curious to see how good (or bad) the hubs were. I found some good hubs, others not so much. After about my second or third hop, I came across a hub that read alright for the first two or three paragraphs, and then quickly devolved into some kind of...

There are a lot of terrible junk hubs here that are damaging to all the hardworking writers that are a major source of good content, be it commercial or otherwise.I would love to see as many hubbers as possible flagging crappy hubs with zero appeal.Lets take out the trash.

I have been hub hopping lately and I am disgusted with the incoherent garbage that I am coming across - nothing but poorly translated articles of about 400 words, usually without even any formatting. I would say that more than half of the articles I randomly encounter are clearly nothing but spun...

I have read numerous hubs while hopping that I thought would be great if the writer did some editing or word smithing. I thought it would be nice to let people know that thier piece could be so much better with out trying to hurt anyones feelings. I have commented on a couple of pages...

I hub hope but have not voted anyone down after reading their hub even if I did not like it. I cannot help but wonder that if I vote someones hub down, then they or their followers will come vote me down. So, is it not a good idea to hub hop?

I was really excited when I saw this new feature because I thought it was a great way to support, get to know and interact with other hubbers...But...for the most part, with some exceptions it is a load of garbage. When I think of all the painstaking time I take putting a hub together...and I...
