I note that there are some very long hubs and some very short hubs.
It might be interesting to actually categorize a hub as a 'summary' or a 'detailed' hub - maybe giving each their own 'best' list.
This way if someone isn't interested in seeing a full hubon for instance 'The Hobbit' they could see a quick 'summary' hub on it.
I know it would be useful for me sometimes as I often just want a quick overview on a subject....having to go through several hubs (despite them being high quality) to find a short one that has all the information I need is often time consuming...
dont you think giving summary before hubs will finish the interest of hubbers in starting of hub. Nobody will like to read whole if everything will be summarized.
I am afraid to disagree here. I don't think it is true if you can write summary cleverly. The whole idea is to give a hint of what follows but not revealing the full info leaving the reader curious. That is how it is done for a movie or a book review or summary!

There are several hubs about the benefits of both long and short hubs.But, I'm curious as to what you guys prefer to read. The longer ones that contain tons of detail, that could be spread amongst several smaller hubs. ORThe shorter, more concise hubs that tend to answer a specific question about a...

What was the length of the last Hub you read? Short, medium, or long?With shorter being 500 or fewer words; medium, 500-plus, and long, 1,000-plus words. It is always interesting and useful to find out more about fellow Hubbers' reading habits.
