    Bring back HP bookmarks! Or at least allow them for recipes only.  I can't be bothered bookmarking externally on my web program as the list then gets long and cluttered.  There are a lot of recipes I want to try and I don't think I'll be able to find them all again!

    Good question! Thank you for asking. For self, it would be able to categorize the followers. I tried to do it with an excel spreadsheet, but one day it got lost, kinda' I'd like to keep an eagle eye on a few, some I like to pop into like a ghost from the past to see what is up, and others offer a bit more encouragement. Time is a crunch, my memory too, although restored somewhat, still fades at times like Ol' Glory Jeans. Always liked Levi a bit more. 

    To be able to find those with a niche in writing, career, and maybe a specialty would do. I like the idea of supporting the support, if you know what I mean. Loyalty and all that stuff too. I realize we have the whole hub campus, and I would certainly look a bit when the hankering says, I need something just right.

    Like, if'n I was to write about Paul 'Bear' Bryant one day, being an Aggie fan and all that, seems family is there in College Station, I just might toss in Alabama somewhere too. I was in therapy, for a neck thingy, and the PDT is from Tennessee. We chatted off an on, I got an idea about writing a myth about why so many think Texas, when they hear a Tennessee accent. Seems when Davey Crockett, from Berkley county, W.VA. went on a trip to Texas   . . . oh that is a story I'll tell later - smile.

    I believe I would change the accolades for the "Level of Commentator." At first, I was given a level III for this, and then it became Level II, and now, I'm just a Level I commentator. Why? I'm not sure why it kept going down. Is it because of my inactivity, since I was unable to engage in the "conversation" of the many written hubs or articles? I thought if you were awarded a level, then it should stick to that, and it should not be changed since a "hubber" has proven that he/she was able to contribute into very engaging conversations and had given many insightful comments. Well, this is just my humble opinion:-). Thanks for asking a very insightful question, Kenneth!!!

    Free pizza coupons for writers would be pretty nice, or any freebies would be nice really.

    I would like to know how much revenue each individual hub makes from the hub pages ad program. I know it shows traffic, but I'm under the impression, that different topics would make different revenues, so if I knew how much each hub was generating through hub pages ad choices program, I could start writing more topics accordingly to what type of hubs generate more revenue through ad choices.

    Thats what I like about other writing sites such as Squidoo. I know how much each article is generating me over the lifetime of that article.

    I'd bring back suggested tags, as I found it to be a very useful feature when I was getting started on Hubpages.

    I would bring back the feature that allowed the reader to view an image in it's original size. Since we only have the slideshow feature (which is nice-- as a slideshow), I find the limited size of its images not much better than those in the article. Pictures such as maps and diagrams can no longer be clearly viewed.

    Good question, maybe to format a hub more like font color, etc.!

    More ways to make money! This is an interesting question, Kenneth! I love HubPages, but like most of us, I think, would like to make more money from it.

    Having recieved an email from hubpages that one of my hubs needed a revision, I would appreciate an exact detailed description of what needs to be changed. As it is now, it's a "guessing game".

    It could be the links, or it could be amazon.com ads, or even "needs more content" and on and on. After the writer makes a dozen or more changes he is left in the dark, not knowing whether he has tackled the right infraction.

    This is most frustrating when the hub is original from beginning to end.
