    I am glad to hear HubPages is doing well under the new leadership.
    The changes are hard to keep up with...
    Just now I found out that some forums are closed to new postings...
    Is this a new policy?

    Anyway, I am sticking around for a bit since I have invested over 800 articles here and only a small fraction moved over to niche sites. Not complaining.
    Most of my articles do not fit in these niches.

    Here is latest from "about" page.

      I have tried Medium as a platform and found it restrictive in its supported platforms. I prefer to write on an iPad, and Medium does not work very well with iPads. Also, Medium combines articles and comments into one single category. It seems odd since an article is longer and with depth while a comment to someone else's article is short and needs context.
      Why are they treated the same?

      Forum channels are closed occasionally. I suspect the one you're referring to, was closed because people were recommending writing on another website instead of HubPages.  On many other writing websites, such posts wouldn't have been allowed - it's called "poaching".

      Personally, I didn't see it as poaching, because the kind of articles which do well on HubPages are usually not suited to Medium and vice versa, so they are complementary rather than rivals.  However HubPages has every right to close the discussion down.

      I notice that many of your articles are still on the old  You are aware that they are no longer monetized in any way under the new policy?

        With all that being true, the old staff on HP encouraged people to write elsewhere in addition to HP, of course. I can see why they do not want this to happen anymore.

        That forum thread was closed because there were over 350 comments on it and was definitely not "on topic" by that point.

    Responses on Medium are not comments, apparently. This is an old article but I can't find anything more recent: … c9a4927c03

    Interesting article on comments: … 31139c469d

        I just discovered a feature of Medium. You can import an article from HubPages to Medium and publish it without any effort.
        I am going to try importing a few of my HubPages article and see how they compare. Will get back soon to report my progress.

          This sounds like a potential for me, too. I'll check it out. I'm sorry to say that I like neither the niche nor Discover sites.
