    What happened to Feedback? Did I miss something?

    I'm somewhat confused where the feedback (Useful, interesting, etc) buttons are gone. HP decided a few months ago that traffic was not important anymore for the Hub scores, and that now feedback where one of the most important things to determine the Hub scores. Are they really gone now?

    Yes it is gone. HP is going through some changes, don't worry. Feedback buttons were not that used by readers anyway.

      Thanks for your answer, Stephan. This is one of the reasons why HP starts to annoy me. It's a nice place to be for writing Hubs, but when changes aren't communicated as it should be, it's time to leave.

      Actually, yes they were.  I had tons of feedback on my hubs and I used them all the time. Instead of taking things away HP needs to focus on what is important, like filtering out the garbage featured on the home page for starters.

    No offense to one of the commenters here, but he's only been here 3 weeks.  I've been here 4 years and the constant changes with no notifications and doing away with features we enjoy is annoying me too.  What will HP do when it irritates all of its seasoned writers into leaving? They take away features many of us use and enjoy - and there are so many more important things they should be addressing.

    QAP here is a joke, there are troll accounts here now that highlight just how bad that is.  "Related discussions" in the forums that are 5 and 6 years old get rehashed constantly.  For years, people have been begging them to lock old threads - nope, can't do that, but we can take away feedback.  I'm VERY near the end of my tether with this site and that makes me sad, because I loved it so much at one point.

      Thanks, that was a good observation. I'm already busy with one of my last Hubs before I pump everything over to another website. I agree with you about QAP that it's a joke. I loved writing very much as well...
