I see the "magnifying glass" icon to the right searches the entire site. But, how do we go about searching the discussion forums?
When I returned to HubPages a few months ago I was having a bit of a difficulty updating myself because, I could not search for information in the forums. A general search using the magnifying glass only sometimes showed results from discussions, but not always.
I only discovered the presence of the Topical Forums earlier in November. Prior to that I didn't even know that discussions were happening on so many topics and among Hubbers who are also returning or newer than myself.
You can't search internally, but if you use Goole and input the following: <search term> site:hubpages.com/forum
you should get the results you are looking for.
I too just returned after being away for several years. I would like to understand why most of my articles are "draft." Do I simply just publish them again?
You will probably need to improve them, Get rid of any excessive Amazon capsules and links. Once you have done that, your aim to have them moved to a network/niche site.

Thanks for the info and pointing me in the right direction. Alas, I do not think i can work with the quality guidelines and the approval process. Although I like to write, I am not that dedicated, nor do I have the time. I was hoping to just earn a little bit of residual income to buy lunch each month, but I doubt that will happen. So, have fun folks and more power to you!

I still think comments should be comments, not discussions, that is the purpose of a forum. Maybe it would be a good idea that every author has a forum automatically made in a widget on there profile page and the topics are always the title of the Hub. That way you can discuss it and always edit...

Do you routinely check the Forums on HubPages?I think it's a good idea to check the Forums, especially the announcements from HP staff. That way you have no surprises as to any new features.
