How has HubPages changed since the time you starting writing for the site?
I started writing for HP since March 2012. During the last 21 months I have noticed several changes in the lay out, edit mode, etc. All these changes were so fine and meant for helping and to increase the style and visibility.
I started at pretty much the same time as sunilkunnoth2012. The majority of changes to HubPages have been a good idea:
- Removing tags
- Adding templates
- Adding Style Tips
The only changes I really don't like are:
- The removal of 1/4 sized photos
- The removal of poll results
- Death of the stats graph (although I understand why)
Overall, I am very very happy with the changes that have happened. Those I don't like are small and probably not that significant. They have improved the standard of hubs and to the benefit of us all. I look forward to being here for a long time to come.
While there have been a bunch of cosmetic changes. I think that the most shocking change is the amount of people on here. And it's the amount of these weird people that are actually bringing this place down.
I've only been here for about six months so I haven't seen any of the sweeping changes that I hear occurred before I signed up. The two main changes I've seen are the display for our various bits of account information and the tougher scoring for hubs. I like and appreciate both. The first makes it so much easier to find what I'm looking for when checking my stats and so on. HP making it tougher to get a higher score has helped me become a better writer and I've learned there is a great importance in choosing videos and graphics which are more topic specific.
i like the templates.. very helpful when i publish a hub. However, the picture size cannot be chosen. Previously, I can choose large, medium small. Now the size is fixed. Previously, all my hubs are featured but now only the recipes are featured while the others are not.

I have been pleased with the audience and revenue for my articles on HubPages since joining the site some years ago.I commend the company for creating the successful niche sites at a time when similar sites were folding. My existing articles that moved to those sites have done even better than...

I have been thinking of leaving HubPages for a while now because of several reasons. With their latest ebay/amazon update I now have to reformat over 90 hubs (Some had not been published yet and I was waiting for Halloween). Rather than doing this I will use my time looking for a site and...

The sad thread about the HubPro edits is long, and this takes the discussion a different direction.Based on what happened to the hub in question on the other thread, there are questions about the contrast in copyright ownership vs 'work for hire.' This site advertises that writers retain...

I don't know, maybe this is just a disgruntled Rant by myself, alone.I call myself a Writer. By default, this makes me a Reader.And, as someone who has the arrogance to think I am good enough to call myself a writer and a reader, I have opinions, on my works as well as the works of others.So, with...

I am really not liking the front page of Hubpages these days. When I first click in to HP, I see a list of the five top questions and articles. It usually something about politics or beliefs. First of all, is that what the public sees when arriving to HP? Right now it is, "Trump Supporters:...
