What do you like best about HubPages? What do you like least?
I love the hub community. I have made friends with those I follow and who follow me. Their comments and opinions are very valuable, respected, and insightful. This helps us all grow and learn.
The thing I hate most on hubpages are the adversarial, hostile, bullies who abuse people on forums and when commenting on hubs who have different opinions than they do. They stalk religious and political hubbers particularly.
Another thing I dislike is when people you know have never read anything you've written follow you and post a fan mail that says "Nice hubs. Please follow me back." They are only trying to obtain a large following in their stats feature on their profile. They are insincere and only out to look good without doing the work.
I just love writing.. The best thing is hubpages allows you to express what you feel.. The idea of interacting with people, exchanging views, knowing the weakness and strengths of your writing, makes hubpages the best website on the internet...
HubPages allows a writer to become part of a helpful and inspiring creative community in which they may learn and support and contribute. This they can do at their own speed, writing about subjects they are passionate and knowledgeable about. This overall freedom is what I like best.
What I like least is the uncertainty of the HubPages response to the next Google update, and the effect on some of my hubs. I know HubPages can't escape an update but sometimes I feel there is more they can reveal about the mechanism behind these updates.
I love the people on Hub Pages and being able to write about what I want. This makes the site a very special place.
The only thing I don't like are the few idiots who stalk other hubbers and are offensive and aggressive to them - personally I either give as good back or ignore them! They seem to like to target people who enjoy writing about their beliefs and faith. One fellow hubber who is also a friend was so distressed a while back that she actually thought about quiting the site! I love to see a good debate between people of opposing views, but I think some of the forums in particular need to be stricter at times.
The community is great, but there are always a few bad apples. I'm sorry to hear about your friend's problems.
Hi Sherry, once she had calmed down a little, she decided that bullies were not going to make her give up a site that she loved - so she's still here!!
HubPages is the only trusted site in the net for me. There is freedom of expression in writing here and the administration teams are smart, decent and fair in dealing with any issues that arise.
Like least: Any where in the net are people with loose moral values, bullies and worst are having criminal mentality; HubPages cannot completely determine who these particular people are in the community or if they do these sorts of people can still infiltrate and disturb some members. More vigilance should be advocated both by the administration and the members.
So you think there should be some kind of screening for membership to HubPages? I like the freedom of expression too, but doesn't freedom mean we don't get to exclude people based on their morals?
No. Just because you have freedom of expression then you can already abuse the right of others; this is a fallacious notion. I am not saying screening in the general sense. It would be specific to a certain misconduct...a disciplinary measure.
Like so many others, I enjoy the Hubpages community. There is plenty of good advice and good feeling among the contributors to Hubpages.
What I don't particularly like is the way our ratings change all the time. I've been at this for over three years now. My 'number goes up as high as 96 on occassion and then drops into high 80s. Howcome? Does it means that one's past contributions are now considered of lesser value?
Yes, I'm vain enough to like accolades.
But to return to the opening. The Hubpage contributors/community are great. I always enjoy tuning in and when I'm not actually writing and posting a Hub myself, I'm always into the Answers and Forums to see what's going on.
At HubPages I can find matured and intelligent persons sharing useful and trusted information at one junction. The writing platform is user friendly and suggestive readings keep the readers engaged with their topic of interest. What I like the least is that hubs are lengthy and not precises. Sometime precise hubs are found more useful and save precious time.
I really like the fact that I can write a poem or article and have it out there for many other people to read and enjoy. That is a gratifying feeling when I find out even one person had enjoyed something I wrote.
My least favorite thing in here is probably when I am trying to generate traffic to my own hub, I read and comment other people's work and interact in Q and A and try to help people but as of late, I don't notice people visit my page after I have visited theirs. Now, I don't expect even half the people to do this but I would think the above things could help with traffic. I aspire to write hubs that could create their own traffic by content alone but I am still learning on how to do that.
I like it interface and its functionality. The least I like that it requires too much views for your payout
HubPages is the site where you can share your experiences and your opinion and you can also support others and there are many professional writers, and the best part is this is not a promotional site, its like a friend to whom you can share every part of your life.
Though I am new to HubPages. till now I don't find anything which is not good.
Good question. Hubpages is a fun place to write articles and receive feedback. It offers more freedom than most writing sites, so that's what I like best about it. What I like the least is how difficult it is to make money on here.

I started this kinda as a spinoff of the thread on liking HubPages, which seemed to focus mostly on the community aspect of the site. I'm curious as to what people like or don't like about HP, aside from the active community aspect.Here's my (rather long-winded) start:What I like:Customer...

I know that you can choose to display your idle hubs on your profile page, but I don't, because I don't want Google to see them at all and get confused by all those "do not follow." What this means is that my idle hubs are not available for anyone to see, and I have to actively...

When I joined here a couple weeks ago I thought I could write hubs that others may benefit from and I in turn could read others interesting hubs. I guess I was naive as it seems no one will read my hubs unless I spend a lot of time promoting them, which requires first learning how to...
