    Or, do you have any grouse against Hubpages/the hubbers?

      Yes, I am Happy at HubPages. I found it be intriguing, fantastic, exciting, friendly and many other things. I've met more nice people on HubPages, than at any other time in my life.

      Which isn't saying a lot about the people I have met. lol

          Well, I have met alot of people offline versus online and the people offline for which I've had dealings with or just know, are not as helpful, courteous or knowledgeable. So, that makes HubPages community quite special, in all.

    I have made my peace with the non-writing-related nonsense that influences scores so, yes, I love Hubpages.
    Do I take issue with the hubbers who flagged me behind my back and brought under the scrutiny of the admin?  Yes, of course.
    It seems like tattling is a childish way of trying to silence someone you cannot otherwise win over in a debate.
    Still, now that I have been flagged so much I know much more about specific limits and will not be so vulnerable to that kind of attack in the future.

    1. Marisa Wright profile image99
      Marisa Wrightposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      WSP, I did read that you felt people had maliciously reported you, but remember that even if someone had malicious intent, your Hubs wouldn't be flagged or unpublished by HubPages if they met the site's TOS.

      If they were in breach, you would have been noticed eventually anyway, possibly after you'd written a lot more Hubs, which would've been even more annoying for you.

      Please bear in mind that HubPages rules about profanity, adult content etc are set by Adsense, not by HP. If you breach them, you jeopardise both your own Adsense earnings and everyone else's, so you're not going to get much sympathy from anyone who understand how the site works.

    HubPages is a great place to me, for an online writing community. Some of the hubs are super and there are many hubbers I truly admire. These things keep me here smile
      Now the forums...The exchanging of ideas and sharing of experiences is always of interest. I only wish more people could differ with a fellow hubber civilly. There is a pack mentality that shreds not only the hubber of disenting opinion, but also the integrity of those attacking.
      HubPages is part of my happiness in life smile

  14. prettydarkhorse profile image65
    prettydarkhorseposted 8 years ago

    I like the people here, they all come in different forms but they have all something to share, I like the forums too, I learn a lot from people, and I respect what everybody has to say,
    In the religious forum too, I am amused by the people defending their belief and the never ending quest for knowledge and truth about justification of a existential GOD< people in the religious forum always have what I call "masturbation of their minds" (pardon for that word), wacking theor heads off just to defend their beliefs, and in the process I think they end up being sad..

    but in general HP is awesome

  19. Lisa HW profile image78
    Lisa HWposted 8 years ago

    I'm happy with HubPages.  The reason is that it's an uncomplicated situation here.  You write.  There's help if you want/need it with anything.  The focus in something like the "help" forum is most often on technical aspects of using HubPages or else things like SEO - not usually on things like how to use commas.  People can like your stuff or not, or vote it up or down or not.  Writers are treated like adults here, and we aren't getting mass-mailing e.mails with tips on how to write.  It's not all "games and contests" here.  The community is a great community.  (Nobody has to take the occasional forum meany or troll seriously, and those aren't most of the people on here anyway).

    I love it here. I get a good laugh out of the clash of ideas from some people. It's like watching a good soap opera. I joined and it took me a good month before I actually started doing anything. Now I'm glad I did.

    Is is just me or is everyone's avatars becoming sexier and sexier? Tantrum, Bovine Currency, Lyrics? That's awesome! smile

      Lisa HWposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      In another thread (one with - like - 800 posts in it  lol)  you'll see that Tantrum did a test to see if a sexy picture would increase traffic.  She said it did, so then "the rest of the world" all jumped on the bandwagon to get their own "scientific results" (or just to have an excuse to add a half-naked picture - not sure).  lol   So, your observation is correct.  lol

        active in the forums, you mean.

        there are many active hubbers who never step foot in the forums, or come in periodically.  Look through hubtivity or hubs and you see the hubs that are being published. 
        HP is a great place to write and publish and meet people we would never have the opportunity to meet.

It's just like in real life except you have to behave even better because of the rules and your reputation and all that.

    I'm not writing for money yet, should really analyse how you do that!

    For me it's just good to write what I like and find some folk enjoy it also.

    It's just a nice, active place. As for hubbers, they are generally awesome, and though I do speak as I feel, I try to avoid the occasional cat and dog fights that arise. Heheh, funny tho.

    I am happy here still, but I'm not as happy as I was. Between Google and Adsense problems and fixing a site that wasn't broken, I'm starting to get a little discouraged with low page views. I keep posting more articles, though.

    And I can't tell my TwoEightSeven stories anywhere else, they all want third person and it isn't a third person story. smile
