Do you regularly participate in forums (other than Hubpages Forum) and share relevant hubs?
I participate in one of our local forums, and I share my hubs when relevant. How about you?
I participate in may forums. When I find a hub of interest that is relevant to the hub I am happy to share! I just make sure I understand the forums policy on links so I don't get in to trouble, or make the hub look bad.
Yup, I'm active in several music and movie related forums and the people there have known of my status as a frustrated wanna-be writer for quite some time (haha) so when I started Hubbing I naturally shared links to my work on those forums. My friends there have been very supportive in checking out my stuff, which I appreciate. I've even inspired one of my forum friends to join Hubpages!
I only do that once in awhile. Maybe I should start participating in forums more often.
I'm in a group on a social network where we share our own hubs and also other members' hubs. It's really nice and you get to know the people behind the hubs.
No. The only forum I get involved with is the one on HubPages. I use HubPages as my site to go to either in-between offline projects or else when I don't really have much going on "work-schedule-wise". I'm not particularly "an Internet-socializing-type person" (and am pretty much only interested in writing online in my skimmed/spare time (and the usual e.mail, shopping, etc.); so since I'm already familiar with HP and since I write here anyway, it just makes sense to use the forums as my "not-in-the-mood-to-write" activity (but also to sometimes get ideas for writing, either here or elsewhere).
Between writing the occasional Hub, the occasional other thing online, and/or whatever writing I want to do on my own in whatever extra time I have; my extra time is spread pretty thin. Even so, sometimes I'm just too tired to feel like writing (or just not in the mood), which is when "discussing" on the forums or answering some questions on here can come in handy as effortless entertainment. Sometimes (lots of times, in fact) even the otherwise "non-Internet-socializing-type" person needs to just do something for entertainment, rather than for more important purposes.
I'm pretty much a mostly-one-site kind of person when it comes to the casual writing I do. I could switch sites at any time, but I do tend to stick with only one site at a time for the "entertainment/casual writing purposes".
I do not regularly partiipated in forums, but sometimes answer the questions appeared in hub. It is very interesting and have substance to enhne our thirst for new knowledge.

Has anyone else noticed a serious drop in quality among the Question portion of HubPages? For the past several weeks, nearly every question that is featured in the "my account" section has been ripe with misspellings and just contain a general lack of worth in my opinion. I feel the...

..which has been an interesting discovery for me. They have interesting content and perspectives. But they seldom come upfront. What are your thoughts. No, not yours. I'm asking the interesting people!

It looks like a fourth of my feed lately is comprised of new people wanting the rest of us to tell them how to write. All day I get request after request for help on passing the Quality Assessment. I mean Really? Many of your requests are just one step above being a jumble of mis-spelled words...

I have noticed that an increasing number of people seem to have joined this site merely to spam religion on the forum. This would be okay if it was not for the fact that this is a forum for writers, not theists.I am all for having a community forum, but I believe it should be a community forum for...

An observation: sometimes threads critiquing people's English skills get taken down. However, it's usually when people derail the thread or when people are a little harder on the writer than necessary. However, with the onslaught of poor language and grammatical skills on the site lately, it's...

Sorry for the inconvenience- but that's what I just saw. HubPages staff, Jason Menayan, who runs another account called 'livelonger', just posted here in the link below, to save the Hubs from sinking??? Hah!I quote forum rules- "Multiple Accounts: While we don't prohibit having more than one...
