Do you routinely check the Forums on HubPages?
I think it's a good idea to check the Forums, especially the announcements from HP staff. That way you have no surprises as to any new features.
i never check the announcements but i do check the forums.i like seeing and participating in the discussions.
I checked the forum for the very first time today in probably about 12 months. Between answering questions, answering hub comments, reading new hubs etc I hardly have time for the forums.
Having said that, I caught up on a lot of interesting threads today and will try to visit the forums more often.
I saw a notice yesterday that someone I follow had posted a new forum thread, checked it and discovered that it was some controversial political baloney that would only raise my ire, so moved quickly away from that page. I guess I have not explored what the forums are really about yet, but judging from the answers here, maybe I should.
A person is better off just sticking with the HubPages-related forums, as those dang political & religious forums are very easy to get yourself banned; trust me! Ha!
As for me, I check in on occasions, but rarely visit them anymore. It's just too much drama and redundant babble, for my taste...
You guys sound like a family, all throwing barbs at each other. But who is going to be the Crazy Uncle. All harmless fun and all.
Both of you two Insane Mundane and Somethingblue can write a hub together. It's most entertaining.
True, but you still didn't really have to delete the poor chap, nor our conversation. Hey, people like us INCREASE page views, don't ya know!
I check the forums for announcements every time there appears to be a problem or if I need help with something. I also check during contests to see who's winning. If I get notification of a discussion I might want to check out, I follow the link.Since the spam attacks and the video processing threads started I've been checking often.
If I want to talk about issues or discuss matters in my daily life, I go to myLot and get paid for the time I spend there and where all discussions are kept civil and I've gotten to know people fairly well.
I do. I enjoy reading and commenting from time to time. I don't always have the time to do so, but when the time is there I do.
I do when I can't handle too many emails and don't want to write--Tried to check weekly, then monthly, when I started, but gave up! Thanks for reminding me.

There are a lot of us who haven't been feeling safe on the forums. They've felt stalked, harassed and browbeaten.Sadly, some folks go with the letter of the law, but not the spirit of it in their posts.For an excellent post on why we need Forum Moderators, check out what Makingamark says here...

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...

I jumped into WebAnswers a few weeks ago. I find I get plenty of WebAnswers help there from the community, although there are no forums. Community help is structured through questions and answers, so, no religion and politics and no just-for-fun discussions. It's all about business. I feel I'm...

I still think comments should be comments, not discussions, that is the purpose of a forum. Maybe it would be a good idea that every author has a forum automatically made in a widget on there profile page and the topics are always the title of the Hub. That way you can discuss it and always edit...

Down at the bottom of forum threads are suggested related discussions. Sadly, however these are determined, it manages to pull up threads that might be on the same topic but which are by now two, three, four or more years out of date. This is where automated tasking is serving...
