Do you think the hubpages forums are useful or pointless?
Do you feel that the hubpages forums are useful or do you think that they are merely loaded down with pointless and uninformative arguements that add nothing of value to the hubpages experience?
I think it depends on who you are and what the topic is. Sometimes i'ts a good way to vent a frustration, to find the people that are agreeing with you to validate what you're feeling. Sometimes you can find out more information. If nothing else, I think it's helpful mainly as it allows you to have that extra bit of exposure, get people interesting in who you are and what your hubs might be about
Some of it's just for fun and socializing, some is useful. When I see topics I'm not interested in or that have degenerated into circular arguments, I go elsewhere.
I skim the topics every day or so but rarely find a discussion worth getting involved in. It seems like almost every thread is either religious propaganda/argument, or it's people bitching about how dissatisfied they are with HubPages. Neither of these areas interest me very much.
I try to stick mainly to the Help with HP forum. I look for topics that I'm not up to speed on or folks asking for help on a topic that I actually know something about.
They're occasionally useful, occasionally pointless. Some people have entirely too much time on their hands and use forums as a way to waste time. But some posts are extremely useful and contribute to everyone. I just look at the title and pass on if it's not a compelling topic.
I'd say the forums are useful. Apart from providing an opportunity to know more about hubbers they are also a vital part of free and open debate that we have a right to.
Forums and the question section are very useful especially to new hubbers like me. It is a source of immense knowledge. I can't mention the much I have learned from these forums. Not to mention the amazing people I have met in the process. Bottom line, Forums are not only useful, they are AWESOME
There is a mix of forums for everyone . Some are really helpful like travel - help on Hubpages .
One is Reccommend another hubbers hub where you have a look at the last persons hubs and reccommend one of them in the forum . I try leave a comment , vote it up if I like the hub so that helps everyone who gets involved .
I stay away from arguments etc .

I'm thinking about putting together such a draft code of conduct. The basic idea is to make the forum rules more transparent and specific, which should make it easy for everyone to see what is allowed and what is prohibited.It would be voluntary for people to sign up to it, of course - at least to...

New people are always welcome on this site, but they need to understand that this is not a site like Facebook. HP is a community of writers who have come here to hone their skills and perhaps earn a few dollars.If your only goal is to show up out of the blue, produce nothing, but spend your...

http://randygodwin.hubpages.com/hub/Goo … ges-ForumsRandy was outspoken of the 'malicious' practices of HubPages and it's staff. Now, in this hub where he explains what abuse he suffered, a hubber called Drax, so-called poet, came and called him - 'who rattled your cage... fuck off', ' it is...

Should those who regard these forums as a place to preach, evangelize and view as a mission field be banned for doing so, especially when they also state adamantly they do not care whether or not anyone dislikes it?

I'm kind of curious. If you are a woman and you add value to a forum thread by your knowledge and expertise, do you find that you often go unresponded to, unless you make a flirtatious response to the forum's male participants?
