    How often do you use the Hubpages Hop feature?

    I imagine everyone knows about, "Help us out Hop some Hubs" at the top of your account page. Does this incline you to hop every time you visit Hubpages? Do you make it a point to do this once a week or month? Has the new mainstream feed design made this an outdated feature?

    Okay. I Hop all the time. You need to know. I am a magazine freak. Here in Florida, the mail might not be right. I don't get half of my subscriptions. Somehow, I get the art mags, but not much else. A hub is a multi-media, interactive, magazine format (mimf). How can you beat it? It is free! It is on time every day.

    Besides, you don't get to read Debbie Bruck just anywhere!

    I used to use it all of the time - but then I realized that there were "elite" folks from the HP beta tester days that presume utmost superiority to other persons using the site, and I think those persons truly suck....hard.

    Also, moderators have a job to do, and they aren't doing it, instead they are (sometimes) glossing over those petty forums...which I intend to utterly boycott.

    I also believe that the hub hopper encourages folks to act like pissy little children, and use their own subjective notions of what is what instead of having a more broad sense of artistic expression.  I also fear monster HP egos inflating themselves by down voting and flagging things instead of encouraging folks to improve their art.

    I use to hop, but there is no time schedule for it, as it is not my main activity at hubpages.

    I occasionally do it, but I tend to comment more on Hubs that show up in my feed, as they are relevant to the topics I'm interested in. If I happen to miss a good one, then I check my emails and click on the link.

    The purpose of the hopper is to view hubs that may be low quality or spam and flag them. So I rarely do it unless I want to laugh at spinners.

    I have not had time to visit this option on HP.  Perhaps when I get things balanced out more, I will be able to look at this.

    There's a hop feature?

    I tend to stick to my own topics where I'm qualified to provide meaningful input. I haven't been doing this long enough to know what qualifies as 'spam' and what qualifies as 'naive'. I figure I'll do more good tending my own corner of HP and helping out new hubbers that share my interests.

    The feed feature works well enough for me, though I do sometimes pick random topics and just wander.

    I hop all the time , because it gives me insights to others writings and helps me find new work that I don't follow. I think we have way to many know it all's on this site, Snobs who won't encourage others. The newbies won't stay and bloom if they are not encouraged. The snobs use the excuse of I don't have time to look at others work and it isn't worth my time . you would not have followers if they did not make time for your work.  I think that too much is made of having a huge amount of followers, if you have a million followers that does not mean that your work is good. and if they all truly followed you the site would be flooded with just your hub. Lets get real , these people just want a chance to have their work read. I say just give them a chance.
    Just my opinion.!!

    Often. Usually 4 or 5 times a week if not more often than that. Part of why I am on hubpages to read and consider the writings of others.

    I try to hop at least once a day. But I do "hop"! If the article does not interest me quickly, I hop to another. It does let me see some hubs that I have missed.

    I do hop but not on a regular basis.  I too, will skip hubs that are not of interest to me or due to time constraints I will sometimes skip longer hubs.  I have found some good hubs by hopping and I have found some poor ones.  It is definitely interesting.  I leave very short comments on poor hubs and have never criticized.

    I try to hop at least everyday. Its fun to see the hubs I sometimes miss because I dont' follow. It's also fun to see mine pop up every now and then. It's like wow I'm there.

    I hop five times a day. Yes, I do agree that some hubs are either too short or too simple. But hey, give these hubbers a chance to improve. I have been there too!
