    It has been almost a year since the beloved hubpages hopper disappeared from.hubpages. I think it encourages hubbers to read each other's work and allowed hubbers to improve their own writing while critiquing somebody else's. anyone else feel the same or no?

    Yes, I do and several other Hubbers as well. Many also still miss profile background photos and such.

    It's not quite the same, but at least we can still browse hubs by topic.

      I miss it a lot too. When we write, especially at the standard necessary now, we have little or no time to see what others are writing about. It used to be a quick way to see who was writing what, so we could learn about each other and even see if those writing on similar topics weren't saying the same things as us (so as not to duplicate). Then they made us play English teacher.

      I really liked browsing through, even if I did it for about an hour a week. That's how I saw who the best writers were. And we used to get notifications when those we followed published a new piece. Without that, there's no reason to get or have followers either.

        We still get notifications. Perhaps the people you follow are no longer writing on HP?

          Some of them are here. What do we need to do to get the notifications? Maybe I turned something off by accident. Thanks for letting me know.

            Jean, I am not sure how you could have turned anything off or on, but to check if there has been any activity that you may have missed go to your account page. Select "following" and then "hubbers you follow". At the bottom of each name is the most recent article (it is hyperlinked) and the date that it was published. When I look at mine I see that most of the hubbers I follow have not published in months or years.
            Hp always sends me notifications on the two hubbers that I do follow and that publish most often (Alexadry and Solaras).
            Looking through this list, and seeing how many of these people never even publish here anymore, I realize I need to do some editing and some unfollowing. If someone has not even published here in years, is there a reason to follow that person anymore?
