I did a quick look to see if this had been suggested before but could not find any mention of it.
My suggestion is on the My Account page, to have an extra button and feature called Note, this would open up window not too dissimilar to what is available for when you create a hub, it will be a place to note down ideas, to do lists, keyword research and ideas about your hubs. Of course, this will only be visible to yourself.
I like that. It would let you save a few ideas without having to commit them to an unpublished hub on a fixed (and maybe unsuitable) URL. Good scheme!
I just use Microsoft Word myself XD
It would be a good idea if the Hubpages team didn't have to put in a lot of work and resources for something not really necessary. Decent suggestion however.
Being a tad on the forgetful side I would definitley use a note feature - great idea!
Why would it be beneficial and a good use of time and resources for HubPages to reinvent this feature when users can do this using any number of programs already on their home computers or using free services on the web (ie Google documents)?
I don't deny there are many other alternatives for storing notes, just like there are many other alternatives for creating webpages. However, I can't speak for everyone else but some of the benefits I can foresee of this feature being added to hubpages are
*Similar work environment i.e. don't have to learn new tools
*Benefit from hubpage specific features: such as Link module
*Not everyone works from the same computer all the time
*As Paraglider said it can even used to generate a hub before committing to a url
In terms of good use of time and resource of hubpages, It is up to hubpages to decide if they feel this feature suggestion will enhance hubpages enough against the cost of implementing it. As I have no idea their development systems, engineering manpower, modularity of design, priority of workload, criteria for feature inclusion, I don't know where the trade off is so all I can do is make a suggestion.
In terms of implementing, a simple solution would be just an permanent link to unpublishable hub per user.
This would also be helpful to me, for there have been several ideas I had that after I wrote the hub found out that what I needed wasn't available, or that my idea did not look so good once I hade written it out, then had to unpublish. This would be helpful....
great idea! I agree about the two computer user thing, I do go between computers and it would be great to have my notes in my account area.
This idea is pretty smart, and I would find it helpful for sure, Thanks
If I'm reading it right, what you really want is some way of jotting down ideas for new Hubs. You can do this already by simply starting a new Hub, and saving it as unpublished - but the objection is, that means you have to commit to a URL.
So what you really want is to be able to write a Hub and decide the URL at the end, or have an opportunity to change the permalink once it's done.
Things like to do lists, keyword research etc. can be just as easily handled outside HP.

I often intend to put a module either within my hub, or at the end, that might include some standard text/a link, e.g. that says "Copyright Me (Year) - Please do not copy and paste this article, but feel free to post a link using this url ....." or "Join Hubpages by clicking...

Since there has been a number of cases of stolen HP content, and the upcoming feature, I was thinking that instead of all hubbers creating a Copyright notice, maybe HubPages could create an automatic message that shows somewhere on each hub.And for those that would rather create their own message...

I think it would be neat if there was a feature or a page that could be added that would have suggestions to update hubs. For instance here are a few features on this page that would be helpful: Hubs that have not been edited in 60 days or Hubs that need Freshened up. Hubs that could use more added...
