Do you regard other hubbers as your competitors?
Though initially I thought that way I now feel others on hubpages are not at all my competitors but they are more of an encouragement and a big reservoir of ideas for more hubs.
No, in fact, I see every hub I read as a learning curve. So, in a sense, the advice I get makes them more like teachers. Does that sound crazy?
No, I see them more as mentors (I am very new to Hubpages), and as interesting individuals that I can learn from.
Never, the only competition I have is myself. I try to write the best I can. Other hubbers have great ideas. I like to encourage them, especially the new ones who tend to get a harsher treatment from the more experienced hubbers.
I was elated to see that there is sort of a welcoming committee for them. And like you said, a big reservoir of ideas, not just for hubs, but enhances the quality of the site.
If you have a competitive nature you will compete to get to the checkout, pick up the kids from school or get in front of the next car before the traffic lights. The challenge of competition is a traditional way to motivate the growth of authors. We put far more credence into the work of an author if they have a pulitzer prize. I can totally accept that some Hubbers are on a personal mission and they view other Hubbers as competitors. If they write a better hub for it, I will applaud from here down the back. Personally, I find enough challenge in getting through my own day.
I don't think anyone should think of other hubbers as competitors. I like how people are always willing to comment, help out others and give advice. Too much of a competitive vibe would ruin that in my opinion.
No because if they have the same interest that I have I am more inclined to read their article with hopes of finding information or creative thoughts I was unaware of and enjoy the moment.

In the blog post about moving away from subdomains Paul referenced comparing HubPages to competitors several times. To me, this indicates HP has identified certain sites as typical of the kind of site HP is attempting to morph into. I ask because I think it would be helpful to have some idea of...

Here's an idea (not sure if it's been mentioned before) but how about a competition run by some of the top hubbers - and the reward is a link from one of their own hubs? This way people will be inspired to do a great hub, as well as get a decent backlink...
