What most fundamentally makes up a hubscore of 100?
YAY!!!!!! I've just achieved a hubscore of 100 for the first time!! It was great to see after reaching 99 a couple of times, and I feel genuinely a sense of triumph and pleasure at this accolade. But ...
Is this an accolade of which one should be proud? Does it measure something significant? Is it a cause for great celebration and dancing in the streets?
Or is it just a figure which is coincidental of several perhaps unimportant factors coming together at the same time? Is it a case of ignore it, because the 100 will be here today, but gone tomorrow?
Most fundamentally, a score of 100 is made up of a numeral one and two zeros, placing the numeral one on the left of two zeros. If you place the one to the right of the two zeros, you get an early predecessor of James Bond.
Well I ain't giving you the best answer accolade for that one, but it did make me laugh!
That would have to be Ian Fleming. D'you think if we resuscitated him he'd write for Hub-pages?
Congratulations, Greensleeves! Oh most definitely an utterly significant accomplishment here on Hubpages. Having a perfect 100 hubber score means you have achieved the utmost approval of Hubpages, which is only bestowed upon the best of the very best. You have reached a super stardom status as a hubber. A perfect 100 hubber score is a badge of excellence here on Hubpages, that mediocre hubbers, such as myself, can only dream of... to dream, the impossible dream...
Now, go dance in the streets. I'm happy for you.... really.
Aw thanks Rosie; that's a beautiful comment and compliment. So does it mean that fellow hubbers have to bow and curtsey when they meet me? I wouldn't want to get ideas above my station, but I'd like the proper etiquette to be observed LOL :-)
Well ain't that just swell! Here I am bumpin' along on an average of 71 and this Essex Man goes and hits the Jackpot!
Still, I'll carry on whacking out these pages - sniff - and one day - sniff - maybe someone will think one of mine - sniff, sniff - worth the accolade.
(Where's that box of Kleenex... someone... anyone?)
No, really, congrats Greensleeves! Maybe I should knock out some fllm Hub-pages and see how they do? (How about if I just slip the odd $20 bill through the system... Hey, there's a hole here, d'you think it's for bungin' bribes?)
Thanks alancaster - but wait a mo'. I see you're on 98 for a hubber score. That's nearly 100 so you're not exactly dragging your feet. I've not seen any posts from HubPages staff requesting bribes so not sure that's the best way to get the extra 2 !
Highest one at the moment on my account is 89.
My hubs are currently between 68 and 92. But - now it's my turn to cry - I woke up this morning to find my hubber score has dropped back from 100 to 97. It lasted all of 2 days. What did I do wrong!! :-) Oh well - back to normal hub life for me.
Well my 100 score lasted a whole two days. It fell back to 97 overnight. So now I'm in a state of mourning for my lost glory, and a book of condolences has been opened.
Seriously, isn't it strange how hubber scores (and scores for individual hubs) rise and fall so dramatically? I've read lots of posts about hubscores (and Rosie2010's 'hubber score' link brings up some interesting pages), but nobody seems to be able to come up with a totally comprehensive picture as to the relative importance of the key points which cause such rises and falls. Perhaps it's just too complicated with too many variables to figure out a particular case.
Congrats on the century ! With some amount of efforts by writing on topics that will pique the interest of fellow hubbers and others and also by may be promoting your hubs via google+,fb, twitter u might just be able to hang on to the beautiful number for more than the few days you are hoping for. Good luck to U!
My thanks Maanasi; The 100 score has already dropped - then risen back to 100 - then dropped again! It's currently at 97, but clearly these stats vary and we'll see how it goes! It's always nice to see it rise, whatever the significance. Thanks again
I have been as high as 98 several times. Have no idea what it takes to get the other two points. I must have missed the free throws before the buzzer blew.
I've been similar with a top score of 97, but till recently I hadn't contributed much to Q & A and Forums, devoting all my time to hubs. I've been a bit more involved recently in the 'community' and maybe that added the last few points in my case
Congratulations for your big achievement. Stay there.
Congrats ,what you have achieved achieved skilfully now try to resume it and increase it day by day.Share your experience .
Well, a huge congratulations for a huge accomplishment. I've been here over 2 years and my highest score so far has only been a 95. So, yes to your question. This calls for a big celebration. You are doing everything right. And I'd love to know you're secret

As I suspect this will be a very, very brief blip, I wanted to celebrate my Hubber Score of 100 with a thread. In an hour or so, I'm sure this score will be gone.In the meantime...WOOT!!Now back to your regularly schedule forum.

What is your Hubber Score right now?What is your Hubber Score ( the number next to your picture on your profile if you aren't sure what I mean?) Mine happens to be 100 right at the moment, but could change at any second so I am freezing that in time and wondering what everyone else's is?

I got a hubber score of 100 for the first time in the two years I've been in Hubpages! And I found myself one of the Featured Hubbers on the homepage for the first time too! This calls for a celebration!

I wish there was a way to turn it off. It goes up and down without reason, and it can be very distressing.

I'd like to suggest we get rid of Hubber Score - and perhaps even Hub Scores. They:- are constantly misunderstood;- cause a lot of upset and grief in the forums; and- encourage newbie Hubbers to direct their efforts in entirely wrong directionsFor instance, I've known newbie Hubbers stop...

My author score is now 88. I've been active on the forums, hopping hubs, and answering questions. I haven't had this low of score since when I first started. Does removing poorly performing hubs cause author scores to go down or what is the problem?
