How do you find the interface of the new hub hopper?
Personally, I find that one has to perforce read the entire hub and rate/submit to be able to hop on to the next hub. This basically defeats the purpose and meaning of hub hopping! Of course, the option to use the old hub hopper interface is there. But I wish we had the option to hop hubs while being able to rate the hubs as in this new interface.
I agree, Rajan Jolly. The newer hopper is less user-friendly than the old system.
I thought that I was the only one who felt that way. It's good to know that I am not alone.
I also agree that the newer hopper is less user friendly, especially in regards to the fact that you are forced to read a hub that's not even on a topic that interests you, or else totally leave the hopper or choose to use the old version.
I have yet to see a comment where any Hubber likes the new interface. Personally, I *really* dislike the new interface and always switch to the old hopper. The new one just doesn't work. There are a few recent changes that I find odd, such as the fact that when you answer a question with a hub, the hub no longer says that it's an answer and no longer links to the question :-( Also, with the new profiles (which I *do* like, I can't find the option to email a hubber anymore. Strange. I hope that HP will tweak these things to make them useful again. Until then, old hopper and notes via comments (hope everyone has their comments section set to screen comments before posting!).
You can email the hubber by clicking on their "Fan Mail." There is an option in "Fan Mail" for emailing hubbers.
I too, have been wondering what happened to the option to email other hubbers. Haven't seen it on the profile page or within the hubs themselves.
I don't like it either, rajan. Some of the hubs I have to read in the hopper, I wouldn't normally read on my own. So I do my own hub hopping by clicking on different profiles of hubbers and topics that interest me.
Like so many others I prefer the 'old' hub hopper. It gives more choices as to voting and rating the hub. The 'new' hub hopper seems so sterile.

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

Every time I hop hubs my hubber score plummets. I would think that the time and care I put into this would improve my score. Is this a fluke or am I not doing a good job when hopping so my score falls?
