I just signed on to HubPages. I'm curious what the numbers in the corners of everyone's profile picture means. Can someone fill me in?
That is your hubber score. It is a variable that goes up and down based on many variables including your hub's performance and contribution to the hub community.
See this link for more info: http://hubpages.com/hub/hubberscore
That's your hubscore! It rises or falls depending on several factors such as amount of hubs, your contribution to the community and your activity on the site.
Most hubbers will tell you to ignore your score and focus on writing useful quality content, your score will rise accordingly!
Happy hubbing (and welcome too! )
It's call a hubber or author score. It really just has to do with your overall activity on here -- posting, commenting, creating hubs, etc. Each individual hub also has its own score.

Do you think that profile pictures are subject to ethnicity, gender and age bias?I for example have my bias towards writers with a profile picture that shows that they are a bit older - I just believe that ultimately lifetime equals experience that can only be beneficial for writing hubs... I...

Hi everyone! I'm new here (sure you could smell that a mile off!!) so, uh, hi! Now to my question - sorry if this is an easy one to answer, I just haven't been able to find it anywhere. What is that little number next to the profile pictures? Everyone seems to have one, and I...

What is with these people? They go on myspace, friendster, or even here on hub pages and post a fake picture of some hot girl and claim it's them. They take advantage of these poor old horny men and try to turn them into their own personal ATM.I'm not going to point out who some of them are, but I...
