    Do you hop hubs?

    I personally enjoy doing this. I am wondering if this does anything for your hubscore, or for the other hubbers hub score. Do all new hubs go to the "hopper"?

    I occassionally hub hop. I have noticed that if I do it long enough, I start to see repeat hubs. If I find a hub that interest me, I'll read it and maybe comment on it. Regardig if they all go to the hopper, I'm not sure.

    Occasionally I do.  I typically see the same theme all the time though.   They are either religious in nature or really really short with bad language. Not sure why they are the only ones that are presented to me though.  It is because of this that I don't do it often.  I generally prefer to look through the feed or the hubtivity of people to see some interesting hubs and conversations going on.

      I´ve noticed the same thing so I just go to explore/hubs/latest and find the most interesting articles there.

    I do it pretty often. I'm not sure if it does anything for your hubscore but I do it because I think it's fun to see what kind of stuff comes up. I come across really interesting hubs all the time. But sometimes there are spammy ones too but most of the time I see pretty good articles.

    I use the Hub hopper often to find new users and articles.  I am unsure if it does anything for your score, but I've found plenty of Hubs to comment on through the hopper, which certainly does increase your score.  Hopping is also a great way to help the community by looking for and flagging Hubs that don't belong.

    I really enjoy hopping hubs. Quite often I get hubs that aren't really of the best quality, but I've also stumbled upon some really great quality information that I probably wouldn't have found otherwise. I'm not sure what the criteria is for a hub to be featured there, but it often seems like they're new hubs or written by new users, so I like to think that I'm helping out the community smile
