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 .

For me, there have been several things that have surprised me:1. I didn't expect HP to be so much work. Honestly, I came in expecting to churn out a few, quick hubs and make some money. But I quickly learned that in order to really work the system, you have to write detailed hubs and then go about...

I am such a champ at procrastination. I am well aware that this online thing takes time, effort, and lots of work. Yet for the past couple of days, I have not been able to get motivated to do anything constructive online. Of course, I've had time to post on the forum's 'last post contest' thread...

There's been a lot of discussion of forum rules and policies recently, as well as criticism of the HubPages staff, so Paul and I agreed that a thread reiterating our position was in order.The rules are very clear:No personal attacks in the forums. Substantive debate and differences of opinion...

Okay this is great! I downloaded it this morning, and it's really working wonderfully. We all know Edweirdo, a very clever and useful hubber who created the HubDefender tool for us all which detects hub-theft and assists in dealing with it. Edweirdo has also written many helpful tutorial hubs on...

I encourage all newbie Hubbers to sign out of HubPages, and go and look at the HubPages.com home page as a signed-out user.You'll see testimonials from several high-earning Hubbers. If you are interested in earning money, then logically it makes sense to follow their example. You'll notice...

Every Friday we volunteers publish a Hub with 1) a fun theme and 2) articles by 18 newer Hubbers for you to read and choose for a vote. ANYONE can vote, not just HubPages members. The 18 articles are split equally this week among these 3 topics (3 different topics each week...
