Do you like the new Hub Hopper? Do you plan on using the new profile format?
Recently there are new changes to Hub Hopping as well as an option to change your Profile to the new format. What do you think of these changes?

New Hubhopper , I am not enjoying that much as i cant see the hubber name.
I have already changed the profile format which is nice.
Thank you for the question, dear Patty.
dghbrh, I am so glad that you commented!!! I want to personally thank-you for all the support you have given me along with other hubbers you follow. I did mention you in a recent Hub!!
I am not thrilled with the new Hub Hopper either!!
hey hey, dear Patty you deserve that and i commented on your newest hub also. I always enjoy reading you and your every thought as well.
Hi Patty, I'm glad you asked these questions. I don't like the new Hub Hopper probably because it really changes how I used to hop and what I used to look for and flag. I suppose I'll gradually get used to it and find my own 'groove' in it again, but it is quite an adjustment. Like dghbrh mentions, though, I do not like knowing who the hubber author is, either. I used to often go look at his/her profile; some to see if the things I see in the one hub is true of their other hubs, some to follow as a newly discovered hubber I'm interested in.
You say there is now an option to change our Profile to the new format. I cannot find where this option is. Has the option been made available to all hubbers?
Ms Dee, Thank-you for replying! I don't like the new Hopper for the same reason and I don't feel qualified to judge grammar etc.
To get the new profile, one way, you can click on dghbrh, and at the top right hand, click upgrade my profile.
I'd not seen the Profile Upgrade option before. Thanks for the tip. Will check it out to see if I'd like it or not.
I just saw the new hub hopper and can't say I care much for it. Maybe I'm missing something but where do you report violations? And why is there no link to the author? Down below the author's name is shown with other hubsthey've written, so I suppose I could click on that hub and then get to the profile, but by then I've pretty much lost interest.
My biggest complaint is that so many hubs I've hopped, I have no interest in so I hop to the next one. In other words, I choose which hopped hubs I respond to. Now I have to judge, on a scale from 1 to 10 in three categories. It means I have to read and judge every "hopped" hub-- or give bogus ratings because I didn't read the darn thing, which, since I won't do, means the drudgery of reading and thinking and rating on subjects I couldn't care less about or, worse, subjects I hate. So, I exit. And if I feel like it hub hop back in. Or do something else.
"Hub Hopping" used to mean you hopped around until you landed on something so bad, so good or at least semi-interesting you put some effort in to judge. Now it's a little like being held hostage until you squeal. You can checkout anytime you want, but you can never leave. My apologies for a totally inaccurate reference to Hotal California by the Eagles.
LOL, I love that song!!! I feel the same, I loved hopping so that I could find more to follow and vote on the ones I liked...If I didn't like, I could just hop away!! THANKS for commenting!!!
UnnamedHarald, you explain very well my own setiments, though sad to say.
I'm with you on this one. I also keep hopping until I find a hub that interests me and there's no facility to skip. I also don't want to be forced into rating hubs either. The new format is a retrograde step which will simply deter me from hopping!
I wish they could combine the two. Some of the suggestions and concerns here are spot on.

I just wanted to share the experience I had, in the last 30 minutes. I am at one of my businesses, so I can only look at a few hubs a day. Today, I decided to do my own Hub hopping, without using the official Hub Hopper.One of the Hubbers who happens to have a lot more hubs published than I do, has...

I just started noticing the Hub Hopper and have tried it three times now. So reading the FAQ's I found that Hopper's can influence your score. I know, we should not be obsessed with The Score, but....I can't help it. I think they give you test hubs to access your scoring and then they give you real...

Is there anyone who LIKES the new hub hopper? I don't think I've seen one positive comment about it.

I've been hopping some hubs this morning. I came across a few excellent ones and a few that sheer perturbed me.In at least 3 of them, the English was so terrible and the word choice so indecipherable that I highly suspect it to be stolen and spun content. But what do I know?I looked up one hub via...

There is a new Hub Hopper that is available today. I've posted some details about it on the blog and set this thread up to discuss it and to get feedback. *Note, the Hopper is only collecting data right now, but will soon be used to select Hubs to feature.

I'm curious as to whether there has been a decrease in hubbers using the hub hopper to rate hubs. I just have a feeling there is because my hub scores haven't been fluctuating as much (which is fine with me). Overall, I'm wondering if there's been a bit of a slow down in hub QAP due to...
