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

    The majority of site users didn't like the old hub hopper, and the new version makes it even more clear that to use the hopper is to be doing the job of the moderators and admin for free while taking away the main reason most site users used it (to find Hubs to read and leave comments on).

      Totally agree. They should bring back the old hopper and call it something else,  as a way to explore hubs.
      I have stopped "hopping" because the new hopper sucks.

    I never tried the old one.  One problem seems to be clicking onto the author's profile who wrote the Hub you hopped.  Maybe there's a way to do this, but it's certainly not intuitive.

    I didn't use the old hopper either and the new one is faulty since you can't leave comments if you actually enjoyed the hub or know who the author is. I think if there was a way to do either or both- I'd be more on board with it.

    I don't like not having the skip button and not being allowed to make a comment.
    The categories that you have to submit could be more subjective than objective, in which case what is the point?

    I liked the old one because I could hop like a demented frog if I came across hubs about subjects I knew nothing about.   If I came across a hub I liked I could leave my opinion.
    The new ones are asking me to analyse the mechanics and grammar.   I don't have the authority to do this to another writer, and I'd hate to think that my hubs were being subjected to criticism from other writers.   I'm critical enough of my own writing, thank you very much.

    I definitely enjoyed the old hopper better and am hoping it is reinstated.

    No, I'm not a fan either!  I heard one person compare it to the facebook timeline feature - not many like that either.  I agree that the skip button is the one thing I miss the most; I don't want to shortchange anyone in reviewing their hub, but there are some that you just aren't interested in and would rather pass on to someone who is better equipped to rate them.  Hope HubPages listens to all the comments!

    to put it simply, this one is crap and relache has a good point.

    I do not for this reason. Sometimes a hub would be marked substandard in all areas because it does not measure up to the criteria given for us to use. I have only done one or two because I do not like to use that instrument. I often would read 4 or 5 hubs a day on the old hub hopper but no more.
    I do not want to destroy someone's confidence or attempt to write but labeling them in such a manner. They may be new to HP and just getting their feet wet in this arena. These newbies need encouragement not to be discouraged. There is really very little space there to give constructive criticism which is valuable.
    I vote for the old hub hopper to come back.

      Secret to "skipping" a hub in the new hub hopper review:
      Just hit the back arrow in your browser and you will skip to the next hub!

    i prefer the old hub hopper. I find that the new one is irritating. I can't hop or skip the hubs that I am not interested to read, can't leave comments and using the sliding bar grading is not my cup of tea. I hope hubpages will relaunch the old hub hipper. I have already stopped hopping since it started.

    I am not a fan, I have stopped hopping all together.

    Before I used to really utilise the hopper and even used it for self-promotion in my first few weeks. I would simply comment and leave my opinion and the next day I would find that that person had visited my page and left me a comment.

    Hopping definitely did something as I am only 5 weeks old now and have over 50 followers. Since I stopped hopping I have lost a lot of traffic and have no increase in comments/ followers.

    I really did like the old one, also if there was a topic that I had no interest about I would simply just skip it. Now I am forced to read (not understand) and then give such in-depth analysis that it is like learning a new language. I didn't understand in the first place and now your making me analyse it!

    I hope they do bring the old one back, or at least add the comments section again... As well as being able to skip

      In case you haven't heard, the old hopper is now available again. Just go the the new hub hopper, at the top is a button for the "classic hopper."

    It's clunky, unintuitive, and off putting. Sometimes websites get 'improved' to the point where they become unuseable. Hope this isn't the case here. Bring back the old one, or something  very like it.

      Did you know you can still use the old hub hopper? Just open the new one and click at the top, above the sliders, where it says "Access Classic Hub Hopper"
