Have you started hub hopping again?
I used to hub hop quite frequently.Then along came the new hub hopper and that was the end of that.I just noticed you can now access the old or 'classic' hub hopper again so i've been hopping again for the first time in ages.I noticed the 'flag' option does not seem to be available any more which seems odd.
I tried it but I didn't feel comfortable with the rating system. The criteria given are fine for a standard informational hub but on this site you have many hubs which are outside the standard model, for instance fiction, poetry and humor. (Or will these be excluded from the hopper?) Informational hubs may be Hub Pages' bread and butter but setting a specific standard is a bit like contructing a protean bed for hubs. For non Greek myth followers, Proteus was the chap who invited Ulysses' men for the night and gave them excellent beds, but if they were too short for the bed, he stretched them on the rack and if they were too tall, he chopped their legs off.
In general, the guiding criteria are helpful, but as many have said, judgement is subjective. I was not quite sure whether certain things should lead me to give a lower grade, or whether they were not covered by the given criteria. At the end of the day, it used to be enjoyable but now it's more like work and I don't want the onus on me of potentially harming another hubber's results.
Thank you for sharing! I miss the old hub hopping, but I just checked it out and yes yes, yes,.....we can hub hop the old way! Love it!
I stopped hub hopping because the new way to rate hubs was too complicated and defeated the enjoyment of reading numerous hubs.

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...

I have been hub hopping lately and I am disgusted with the incoherent garbage that I am coming across - nothing but poorly translated articles of about 400 words, usually without even any formatting. I would say that...

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...

Do you like the new hub hopping?What I do like about the new hub hopping is they way you can rate grammar separately from creativity. What I do not like, is we are forced to read a hub we have no interest...
