    What does everyone think of the new "Hub Hopping" process?

    Maybe, it's just me, but it is a little frustrating, and it was fun, but now?  Not so sure about it.  I may just need to adjust to it and keep at it before I make any final conclusions.

    I like being able to give more specific feedback when it comes to mechanics or whatever, but I'm still trying to figure out some of the specifics. I *do* wish that there was a way to skip hubs. If it's a topic I know little about - or care nothing about - it can be hard to assess it accurately.

      Yes, that is what I like, to just be able to skip over something.  It is good that one can provide specific feedback too.  Thanks for the answer.

    My initial reaction is that it now seems more like work than play. I liked skipping through hubs that didn't grab my attention, then having a good read, and making a simple mark.  There's more effort involved now, which, feeble though it may sound, is a bit off-putting. Will see how it goes.

      Well, that is how I am feeling about it too, that it is a bit more like work.  Thanks for the answer.

    Faith,

    Great question! I think it needs a lot more work, which I feel that the web staff will be doing at some point.  I feel that it takes too much work, and I do not like how you can not look at who authored the hub. Also, the slide bars seems too much, the voting was much easier.  I will maybe use it later when they have hopefully upgraded it and made changes.

      Thanks so much, Josh.  Yes, I think that's what I will do too, wait and see if it is upgraded a bit.  I agree, as far as the author and slide bars too.

      Oddly, to me hiding the author's info is a plus (except for the difficulty in following him/her if you liked them) - it stops the 'I got a bad score because they don't like me' stuff.  Like the slide bars for more scoring flexibility, too.

    I do not like it at all. It seemed perfect as it was. I know if they want it used they will be changing it again.

      Yes, I thought it was great and a fun thing to do the way it was before.  Thanks for your comments.

    Not a fan of it at all!!  The fun about the old system was checking out several hubs and stopping on the ones I had an interest in or wanted to learn about.  Now, it's like Clockwork Orange . . they are forcing us to look at things we don't want to . . LOL!

      Exactly, you could right away determine if it was something you would actually want to stop and read or just "hop."  Thanks for the comments.

    I do not like it for these reasons:
    1. You cannot skip Hubs, which you can determine from the title do not hold any interest for me.
    2. The grading system is pointless. HubPages could ask people ho Hub Hop to note if the grammar is terrible, if the subject matter is offensive, etc. Check boxes should be find. The scales are pointless.
    3. It reduces the number of people who take part in this exercise (cannot prove that but I think it is a high probability) thus fewer hubs are reviewed.

    The prior system was better. If HubPages wants to add a few check boxes regarding grammar, inappropriate language, (many of which are available when you flag a hub) that would be acceptable to me.

      Thanks Larry for the comments.  I think it will prevent a lot of people from participating in "Hub Hopping" too.

    I don't care for it myself. I liked the old way better. Maybe we can get it back?

      I do hope they get the old way of Hub Hopping back too.

    I don't like it. It has taken away our choices to read a particular hub or not. And it creates the possibility of not reading up hub but voting it up or down to move on.

    I can say I have stopped Hub Hopping because of it.  The sliding scale is ridiculous.  change can be good but this change is not.

      I no longer hop hops either.

    I hate the hub hopping.  You can't skip any.

      Well, that seems to be the majority of the opinions.  Thank you for answering the question.  I know, you can't skip the ones you really do not care to read ---just doesn't make sense.
