Why did HubPages change the thumbs up , thumbs down feature?
I'm not exactly sure, but I don't mind. I think it looks rather nice!
Not sure, it looks nice, but i don't think you can see how many people have thumbs up'd or downed something..I may be wrong though.
I think they don't want to show how much of an effect the trolls are having on discussions. There are many who troll the answers only to vote down answers that add tot the discussion. I noticed the change as well and had recently asked a couple of answers about trolls and how they should be punished. It appears that this way no one can see how many votes up or down answers receive but it still doesn't do much to expose or punish trolls.
I don't use thumbs up & down feature, so the change seems ok for me.
In fact, the entire page layout was changed to resemble that of a Hub. Although I like the overall look, it's sad we can no longer see how many vote ups/downs an answer received.
I think the change with the voting arrows is a positive one. No longer will the mean spirited be voting people out of a discussion, simply because they don't like the author or their views. I say bravo to HubPages for making this great decision.

I think hubbers should be able to flag spam on the forums. I'm not sure if there is an option to do this already but I think it would be good. Even though there is not too much spam, keeping HP forums spam free 99% with...

How should trolls on HP be punished?We've all seen it, trolls voting down nearly every/every answer to a question when the answers clearly add to the discussion. Shouldn't there be a limit on how many answers to a...

I thought that the questions would be adding to the hub, thereby making the hub rank better for certain terms. However, that's not the case from what I see. The questions show on the page but not the answers, so the...

About once a week I peruse my hubs to check on traffic, comments, and just generally see how things are going. One of my hubs, "What Are The Benefits of Eating Bananas," had the copyright symbol next to it. I...
