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?

I'm fairy new to Hub Pages, but one of the things I really enjoy is reading through the Hub Hopper - you never know what topic is going to pop out at you OR how good or bad the next article will be, ha! But some of the really good ones could be even better with some good writer-to-writer feedback....

I'm curious as to whether there has been a decrease in hubbers using the hub hopper to rate hubs. I just have a feeling there is because my hub scores haven't been fluctuating as much (which is fine with me). Overall, I'm wondering if there's been a bit of a slow down in hub QAP due to...

I just wanted to share the experience I had, in the last 30 minutes. I am at one of my businesses, so I can only look at a few hubs a day. Today, I decided to do my own Hub hopping, without using the official Hub Hopper.One of the Hubbers who happens to have a lot more hubs published than I do, has...

Would any of you suggest 'reporting' an obvious newbie who has obviously not read anything of the rules and protocols here, whose profile includes no bio and indicates having joined but 2 hours prior, and whose portfolio includes but a single, very short and very poorly written hub?I'm not even...

Is there anyone who LIKES the new hub hopper? I don't think I've seen one positive comment about it.

Hi all, I have a quick announcement today to let everyone know that the community Hub Hopper has been retired. You will no longer see the option to Hop some Hubs in your My Account page. We'd also like to offer a big thank you to all the helpful Hubbers who have Hopped Hubs over the years. Your...
