There is this user by the name "love2learn" who has seemingly sent everyone a request for "i want you to go to ....." with a affiliate link in the URL.
Would the mods please deal with the problem.
yeah i got the same request too, and i see on the 'request' page that this love2learn has posted lots of the same request as well!
So... many... of same... personal... requests...
Wow. Spambot much?
Yup, just got the same request. Glad to know I wasn't singled out for this piece of spam. Idiot.
Oh, and in the requests area the spam has been posted over and over and over again. I hope Hubpages can remove them soon, so that we can see real requests. Le sigh.
Yes, it seems about 600 of us were lucky enough to receive this dubious honor.
Write how-tos, get them accepted by their editorial board, and receive 50% of AdSense revenue. Hmm....
I think Drax's response was worthy of sympathy:
http://hubpages.com/hub/I-want-you-to-c … ery-high_1
Paul Deeds will probably get rid of all of them. Sorry, folks.
LOL Drax's response was awesome. I couldn't have said it better myself
Thanks, Jason. I just emailed you about this very issue. Feel free to ignore that email. I just read this thread.
Sent the team an email and they seem to have gotten to work pretty fast. Now it might be a good idea to add CAPTCHA's in a few places.
Given the falling quality of many of the recent requests, I think it might be time that requests are reviewed before they go live, not afterwards....
Got it too! Anytime a site has to build itself up by using another's foundation we should be cautious. Obviously this site don't have what it takes to attract it's own writers.
They didn't realize who they were messing with when they attacked us! Hubbers are too smart and the community is too tight.
A lot of hub requests are very un-hub, almost conversational. I think that has got to stop. It's a waste of valuable spots to have those things listed up there.
"what is your favorite color"
"talk to me"
"where do you live and why do u live there?"
I think a guideline on what kind of requests can be made will be better.
There IS a guideline.
People aren't following it.
Hmm.. I don't blame them. I didn't see any guidelines myself. Must I go digging around for the guidelines?
All received the same request,is there nobody who fulfilled that little request.lol
When I first received it, I thought it was a request for me to write a hub, but then realized it was spam so didn't bother opening the link, just deleted it. This person seems very busy spamming hubopages, as I vaguely remember gettting a spam from the same person a few week ago, I could be wrong.
Yep got the same spam about two weeks apart. Spam.
I've felt for a long time that the whole Requests thing wasn't working. As someone said, many of the requests are almost conversational. Others ask questions that could be answered in a few words, which only encourages newbie hubbers to treat HubPages like Yahoo Answers and write a one-paragraph Hub.
If it's not going to produce productive questions, perhaps HubPages should just can the feature altogether - or restrict it to requests by HubPages itself?
Maybe some more experienced Hubbers could moderate the requests?
I think it's a good idea if it works as designed - to identify topics which aren't already well covered, each of which is an opportunity for HubPages to grab a top search ranking with a good Hub.

I know that hubpages really pushes for new hubs to be created, and rightfully so. However, I'm thinking it would be nice to be able to "answer a hub request" with an existing hub.So if someone does a hub request for something I've written on (revver videos, for example), I can simply...

I noticed that hubpages is putting in nice hub requests and this is motivating people to create great hubs, thanks for the hub requests, as requests give us a reason to create beautiful hubs and we share each other's point of views with that.I would like to share other hubber's views on this topic.

Sometimes I stumble upon a HubPages request that could be answered by a Hub I've already written... but of course I couldn't submit another such Hub. There should be a way to use a Hub already made in order to answer a request.

I've been a little down about not having received a payout for nearly two years of participation here, but I'm looking at Triond, another writing site, and I must say how grateful I am for the amount of control I have about how my article looks here at Hub Pages by comparison. When I delete...

A couple years ago in 2011, I had a hub on another account that went up to 5000 views rapidly. Eventually it waned to about 1000-1300 views. Now after a couple years it gets about a few hundred views a day astonishingly. Would that hub be defined as "going viral?" I know it's not...

For this week's HubMob, I have decided to cover a topic that is truly close to many people's hearts - their pets. I have never really been a pet owner, but as I meet more and more people I realize the huge role that they play in the lives of others around me. So, this HubMob is basically a way for...
